VANCOUVER, BC – Goldex Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE: GDX) (“Goldex” or the “Company”) today is pleased to announce with the recent announcement that effect February 2016 the new Guatemala government announced they would not longer operate under a moratorium for granting mining licenses. On January 11, 2017 Gold Corp (TSX: G, NSYE: GG) announced the sale of its Cerro Blanco gold – silver project in Guatemala to Bluestone Resources Inc. (“Bluestone”) (TSXV: BSR). On February 28, 2017 Bluestone announcement, an increase its financing from $40 to $80 million which they closed on April 20, 2017. These events indicate increased market confidence in Guatemala mining projects and improved prospects for granting of the Company’s mining license.
Goldex’s 100% owned El Pato Concession covers contiguous leases totalling 244 km2 in Guatemala. The Company conducted bulk sampling from the Cerrito West zone and produced an average grade of 28g/t Au from surface (see press release, November 29th, 2011). In addition, the surface “dip slope” area in the Cerrito West zone contains an average grade of at least 7 g/t Au. It is these high-grade surface mineralisation zones that the Company intends to exploit first on being granted an mining licence. Sampling north of El Pato’s principal zones have shown multiple surface samples of up to 410 g/t of gold (see press release, April 4th, 2012).
In December of 2011 Goldex was granted the Environmental Impact Assessment (E.I.A.) portion of the mining licence by the Guatemalan Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (MARN). Immediately following the E.I.A. approval in December of 2011 the Company posted its reclamation bonds for the property. Since then, Goldex has maintained close contact with the Guatemala Ministry of Energy & Mines to facilitate processing of the license.
“The news of the Bluestone acquisition of the Cerro Blanco gold-silver project from Gold Corp and its $80 million financing is great news for mining projects in Guatemala. Goldex is fully committed and is working with the government and the people of Guatemala for the mutual benefit of all involved.”
