Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 7, 2020) – GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (TSXV: SPOT) (“GoldSpot” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has been engaged by Metallic Minerals Corp (TSXV: MMG) (“Metallic”) to apply its proprietary machine learning technology and geoscience expertise on Metallic’s flagship Keno Silver project, located in Canada’s Yukon Territory. GoldSpot will work closely with Metallic’s technical team to analyze geological, geochemical, and geophysical data covering the company’s advanced and early stage targets in the high-grade Keno Hill Silver District.
GoldSpot is working with some of the leading exploration and mining names in the industry to apply cutting edge artificial intelligence (“AI”) algorithms to significantly increase the efficiency and success rate of mineral exploration. Recent successes by GoldSpot with both leading producers and explorer/developers have demonstrated the potential to expand resources and make new discoveries using this advanced analytical technology.
Denis Laviolette, Executive Chairman and President of GoldSpot, stated: “We are extremely pleased to be engaged again by the Metallic Group. Our teams have meshed very well in the ongoing collaboration with Group Ten Metals where our work is already delivering value to an exciting PGM and battery metals project. We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with Metallic Minerals and achieving exploration successes with them. We are excited to be working on a silver-focused project in a data-rich historic mining district that is a perfect fit for our cutting-edge technologies. We can’t wait to get started.”
Greg Johnson, Chairman and CEO of Metallic Minerals, commented: “We look forward to working with the Goldspot team on a second Metallic Group company. Goldspot’s innovative AI techniques are particularly relevant to our Keno Silver project, as we have numerous target areas across a 35-kilometer-wide district with a substantial exploration database. Their work, in tandem with our technical team’s extensive knowledge of the Keno Hill silver district and similar high-grade silver districts globally, should add to our ability to quickly and cost-effectively refine and prioritize existing exploration targets while driving new high-grade silver discoveries in less explored areas of this prolific and famously metal-rich mining region.”
Mr. Johnson continued, “Our 2020 exploration program continues at the Keno Silver project, where a second drill has been added to the program that is currently core drilling at advanced targets in the West Keno area. This year’s programs have been designed to expand areas of known silver mineralization in the advanced target areas, as well as to test a number of exciting new multi-kilometer-scale targets on the eastern part of the Keno Hill silver district, which have never been previously drilled. We look forward to providing more comprehensive updates and further information as we receive results from our on-going programs and begin our work with GoldSpot.”
