Adamera 2021 Exploration Underway
Vancouver, B.C., March 30, 2021 - Adamera Minerals Corp. (TSX V: ADZ; OTC: DDNFF) (“Adamera” or the “Company”) announces the start of 2021exploration at its’ Buckhorn 2.0 and Cooke Mountain gold projects in Washington State, USA. The next announcement from the Company is expected to be the commencement of drilling at Cooke Mountain.
Exploration at Cooke Mountain is being funded by Hochschild Mining Ltd (HOC: LON) under a joint venture (“JV”) agreement (see press release January 22, 2020). The 2021 exploration budget is anticipated to be $1.0 million and will include a Phase 1 drilling program of about 3,000 metres to test a minimum of 4 targets.
Exploration at Buckhorn 2.0 will ramp up as snow melts. Geophysics, sampling and mapping on the Keystone prospect, immediately south of the Buckhorn gold mine landholding (Kinross Gold) is the first target. Exploration will be extended to other parts of the property that Adamera considers the most prospective later in the spring. Permits are in process and an initial drill program is anticipated later in the year.
“Despite the challenges and multiple restrictions associated with COVID-19, Adamera is proud to have achieved so much over the past year. Among other things, we completed a $1,600,000 financing at twice the price of our previous financing and strengthened our Board and Management teams. Additionally, the partnership with Hochschild and the acquisition of the Buckhorn 2.0 lands are clearly exciting developments in 2020. I am looking forward to a discovery in 2021," says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Adamera.
The Washington exploration team will begin with 5 Adamera personnel and will increase as our program ramps up. Protocols for COVID-19 will continue to be a priority for the Company.
