Gold Remains in the Spotlight Amidst Inflation Concerns

NEW YORK, May 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Gold is widely viewed as an inflation hedge - a reliable measure of protection against purchasing power risk. Generally, gold prices increase in value as the purchasing power of the dollar declines. Now, there are major inflation concerns. JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon warned the White House that the government's sweeping USD 4 Trillion spending plans could lead to inflation. While testifying before the Senate Banking Committee, Dimon suggested that the Federal Reserve may need to raise interest rates sooner than they have anticipated to reduce down rising prices.

According to a report by Kitco, Jon Deane, the CEO of Trovio, explained that "we are already seeing inflation. If you look around the world, you see real estate prices, building supplies, and services skyrocket," he said. "What we created since the early 1990s is an entire financial infrastructure that is relying on debt, and we have accelerated that dramatically in our response to managing the COVID-19 crisis. In that regard, we will continue to increase the money supply globally, and we will continue to have a quite aggressive fiscal policy. We are sitting on an economic cliff."

Gold Mountain Mining Corp. (TSX-V: GMTN) (OTCQB: GMTNF) announced yesterday breaking news, "an updated preliminary economic analysis of the Elk Gold Project. The update is based on the increased Mineral Resource Estimate announced on May 14, 2021, the Ore Purchase Agreement with New Gold Inc. ("New Gold") announced on January 26, 2021 (the "Ore Purchase Agreement") and the Mining Contract with Nhwelmen-Lake LP announced on January 19, 2021 (the "Mining Contract"). An updated preliminary economic assessment (the "PEA") will be filed on the Company's website and SEDAR within 45 calendar days of May 14, 2021.


  • Updated PEA with an After-tax NPV5% of C$231M
  • 19,000oz annual production (Years 1-3) expanding to 65,000oz annual production (Years 4-11)
  • Increased cost certainty over September 2020 PEA through executed:
    • Construction and Mining Contract with Nhwelmen-Lake LP
    • Ore Purchase Agreement with New Gold Inc.
  • Revised mine plan eliminates construction of an onsite mill and incorporates underground mining

Elk Gold Project PEA Summary

The PEA contemplates an initial 19,000 ounce per year mine that ramps up to 65,000 ounces of annual production by Year 4. The pre and post tax NPV (5% discount) are $395M and $231M, respectively. The PEA contemplates that for the life of mine, the mineralized material from the Elk Gold Project will be mined by the Company's contract mining partner, Nwhelmen-Lake LP ("Nwhelmen-Lake") and then delivered to New Gold's New Afton Mine located approximately 130km from the Elk Gold Project (the "New Afton Mine").

The PEA is preliminary in nature and includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is no certainty that the PEA will be realized. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Elk Gold Resource Update - Summary

On May 14, 2021 the Company announced the following updated resource estimate at the Elk Gold Project:



AuEq (g/t)

Au Capped g/t

Ag Capped g/t

AuEq (Oz)













Measured + Indicated












CIM definitions were followed for classification of Mineral Resources.

Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Results are presented in-situ and undiluted.

Mineral resources are reported at a cut-off grade of 0.3 g/t Au for pit-constrained resources and 3.0 g/t for underground resources.

The number of tonnes and metal ounces are rounded to the nearest thousand.

The Resource Estimate includes both gold and silver assays. The formula used to combine the metals is:

AuEq = ((Au_Cap*55.81*0.96) + (Ag_Cap*0.76*0.86))/(55.81*0.96)

The Resource Estimate is effective as of May 1, 2021.
