Some juniors can be agonizingly slow on following up to their self-imposed timelines and ability to deliver results, however there are exceptions to the contrary. Cypress Development (TSXV: CYP; OTC: CYDVF; FRA: C1Z1) is proceeding at breathtaking pace, going from their first drill hole at their Dean claystone lithium project in Nevada, US to the very recent announcement of a maiden resource estimate on both Dean and Glory projects in just over a year.
Tinka Resources (TK.V, TKRFF.US) came a long way doing their financings without the Canadian brokerages, supported by Sentient and IFC, but finally it was time to let them in as the upcoming/ongoing drill programs, resource estimate and Preliminary Economic Assessment demanded a substantial treasury, preferably raised well before it will be needed.
Fiore Gold (F.V) has progressed its Pan Mine in Nevada, US in a very steady fashion, on time and on budget. Exploration for additional resources (and hopefully years of mine life as well) has been successful so far, and a new COO has been hired.
After completing their drill program, Cypress Development (TSXV: CYP; OTC: CYDVF; FRA: C1Z1) is on track to deliver the maiden resource estimate for the Dean and Glory projects before the end of this month. The latest results, published on April 3, 2018, provided very strong showings for the northern part of the Glory project, likely adding more tonnage than expected here.
Slowly but surely and piece by piece, Tinka Resources (TK.V, TKRFF.US) is unraveling the complex puzzle which is the Ayawilca mineralization. As they hit more mineralization at Zone 3, for example best intercept 5m @20%Zn in hole A18-111, and polymetallic mineralization in adjacent hole A18-109, drilled from the same rig location, management seems more and more convinced that the source of all mineralization might be located below or east of Zone 3.
Chevrier Gold project; core shack Main Zone
After having completed a 10,150m 58 hole drill program on the Main Zone, plus 25 new trenches and re-sampling of 11 historic cores, it seems that Genesis Metals is well on its way to get more insight in the complex geology of Chevrier, therefore an update is warranted.
