As banks are getting into trouble left and right, with central banks saving bank customers (SVB) and lending up to US$54B (Credit Suisse) at the last minute in order to avoid a financial Armageddon, gold is doing well as the fear trade is on again, Goldshore Resources (TSXV:GSHR)(OTCQB:GSHRF)(FWB:8X00) keeps on churning out solid drill results at their fully owned flagship Moss Lake project in Ontario.
During the last PDAC, CEO Greg Ferron of Platinex (PTX:CSE)(9PX:FRA) was busy working with the regulators, Fancamp and investors to close the South Timmins JV and the C$2.5M financing as soon as possible. As there were lots of moving parts at work, CEO Ferron preferred to come out with all relevant news at once, but as the first tranche (C$1.25M) of the financing closed on March 10, 2023, 2 weeks after the intended (and disclosed) closing date but before the Fancamp transaction could be closed, separate news releases had to be announced.
As nearology plays are often characterized by flavor of the day metals and new, hot discoveries front and center, resulting in a staking frenzy around such a discovery, EGR Exploration (EGR.V) is a bit different. Its predecessor Gambier Gold already owned the substantial and highly prospective 39,218ha Detour West land package on trend and indeed west of the giant Detour Lake gold mine in Ontario, and lots of shareholders at the time weren’t particularly satisfied with the way things were going as exploration at Detour West was unstructured at best.
After acquiring the Muskrat Dam Critical Minerals project in Ontario, with a focus on the extremely hot metal lithium, it was good to see Platinex (PTX:CSE)(9PX:FRA) bringing in Fancamp Exploration (FNC.V) as a partner for the Shining Tree gold project in the same state, as it had 3 district-scale exploration projects in its portfolio by then, which is a bit much for the average C$8-10M market cap.
In a time where large gold deposits are becoming increasingly rare, Goldshore Resources (TSXV:GSHR)(OTCQB:GSHRF)(FWB:8X00) set the bar high for themselves. After being guided by a 4M oz Au historic resource, Goldshore announced a robust NI43-101 compliant Inferred 4.17Moz @ 1.1g/t gold current resource in November 2022 at their fully owned flagship Moss Lake project in Ontario.

Kenorland Minerals (KLD.V)(3WQO.FSE) keeps expanding and finding new mineralized structures at their Regnault target, part of their Frotet project in Quebec, part of the 20/80 JV with Sumitomo where Kenorland is the operator. After announcing the second 25 holes batch of their 57 hole - 17,792m 2021 summer-fall program, it is clear that Regnault contains a considerable gold system, spread out over multiple vein structures.
Platinex Inc (PTX:CSE)(9PX:FRA) doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, as it has been adding more claims to the highly prospective and strategically located district-scale Shining Tree gold project and recently acquired W2 Copper-Nickel-PGE project, both located in mining-friendly Ontario.
Platinex Inc (PTX:CSE)(9PX:FRA) is developing quite an attractive asset portfolio in Ontario, Canada.

With gold stabilizing and further inflation expected with a world economy continuing to recover from COVID-19, it seems Maxtech Ventures (CSE.MVT)(OTC:MTEHF)(FRA.M1N), a junior exploration company operating in Ontario and Quebec, is in the right place at the right time. It raised C$0.94M on June 4, 2021, and recently commenced a 15,000m 3 staged drill program at their flagship St.Anthony
