After almost two months of exploration at the Esperanza property at the Flecha de Oro project in Argentina, results are starting to come in for Golden Arrow Resources (GRG.V, GARWF.US, G6A.FSE).

As Golden Arrow Resources (GRG.V, GARWF.US, G6A.FSE) was sidelined for most of last year due to COVID-19, their exploration programs were basically halted. The project that first got underway again was the Tierra Dorada Gold project in Paraguay. The story on this project is a testament to the strong network of Golden Arrow in Latin America.

At a time when tax loss selling is at its peak, Golden Arrow Resources (GRG.V, GARWF.US, G6A.FSE) seems to have bottomed, and is regrouping after the sale of its interest in the Puna operation.

Despite a rising silver price since the announcement of the sale on July 22, 2019, and consequently growing unease among shareholders of Golden Arrow about the appropriate value of the Puna asset, no less than 94.62% of represented voting interest voted in favour of the transaction.
