Element79 Gold Corp Invitation to Investors: an Open AMA: Q&A Forum to share Plans for 2024 and Beyond
VANCOUVER, BC - TheNewswire - November 23, 2023 - Element 79 Gold Corp. (CSE:ELEM) (OTC:ELMGF) (FSE:7YS) ("Element 79 Gold" or “$ELEM”), a mining company focused on the exploration for and production of gold and silver in Nevada and Peru, announces a unique information forum to share information on its evolved business model and trajectory through 2024 with its shareholders and interested investors.
The information format is called 'AMA' = Ask Me Anything.
$ELEM’s Management is looking for interesting and substantive questions and is eager to help increase understanding and awareness of its refocused business model and planned trajectory through 2024. Interested parties should view the Company’s Corporate Presentation. Management’s most recent Corporate Update is also well worth attention.
The team at Element79 Gold Corp believes it embodies something quite unique in the marketplace today, something different from the more common exploratory, 'shovel in the ground' or 'on-site’ mining company stories. Some core features that help it differentiate itself from the rest of the Junior Mining sector is that it has a unique blend of miner, explorer and, most importantly, a “closer” of value-generating deals that benefit shareholders.
Shareholders and Investors are invited to send their inquiries and questions about Element79’s business to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4pm EST on December 1, 2023; The appropriate ‘C- suite’ member will respond to the questions in a video format that will be released via the Company’s YouTube channel and other social media assets at 4pm EST on December 10.
As a primer, investors may choose to address some of these transactions or processes underway, outlined below:
In 2023, ELEM transitioned from a project incubator to a production focus with sights set on bringing the high-grade, past-producing Lucero mine back into production in 2024.
As the Company’s focus transitioned over the last year, the M&A newsreel has been constant:
Lucero: $ELEM expanded the property in June 2023, received Exploration Permits in September 2023, and continued investment in mapping, channel sampling, and amassing data that will feed a drill program in 2024. Being that it’s in small-scale production today by the local artisanal miners, we have a production permit, its high-grade historical production, this is our flagship project.
Machacala Transaction Cancellation: In March 2023, the Company halted the Machala deal to refocus better and conserve funds. Return of shares involved in this transaction will be returned and cancelled before the end of 2023.
Centra Sale: Two Nevada projects were sold to Centra for CAD 1,000,000 in stock in May 2023. Centra is completing its 43-101 on the Long Peak property and commencing final filings for its own IPO. Once Element79 receives these shares and they trade freely, the Company will manage its holdings strategically for corporate growth and investment into operational budgets.
Valdo Sale: The Company also selling three Nevada projects to Valdo Minerals for CAD 1,250,000 in stock through a deal announced in November 2022 and extended in May 2023. Valdo has a similar business trajectory as Centra, with the timeline staggered by approximately 9 months, and the Company will strategically similarly manage these shares as those from Centra.
Dale Spinout: In July 2023, we transferred the Dale Property to Synergy Metals Corp. Synergy has sourced a CAD $200,000 loan to complete Plan of Arrangement “spin-out" process; This process has been delayed from its original timing due to legal processes and the company will be providing further progress updates in December 2023.
Snowbird Project: Currently under negotiations with Plutus for future project advancements.
Maverick Springs: The sale Option was initially contracted on August 31, and an extension was announced on October 23 with an ultimate completion anticipated on or before the end of March 2024. The counterparty continues to complete the steps required relative to their own listing process.
Upcoming Special Shareholder Meeting: For investors that held $ELEM shares as of market close on November 6, 2023, there will be a Special Shareholder Meeting on December 19, 2023 that will include voting on two major initiatives that pose to clean up the Company’s balance sheet dramatically:
A Share-For-Debt conversion of up to CAD $3,750,000
A notable conversion of a CAD $2,000,000 loan into shares of the Company
Element79 Gold Corp’s Management and Board has always believed strongly in ensuring open communication its investors and stakeholders. As the Company has recently pivoted from one business model to another (asset amalgamation to ramping up to production), seizing what is believes will become a significant value-creation and upside opportunity, ELEM’s team has been speaking on a one-off basis with many of its community to ensure that everyone understands the value levers that the Company believes are at hand. The design of this AMA session is to clarify perspectives or misconceptions that may exist. Element79 Gold Corp’s Management team believes you will find Element79 worth getting to know for its projects, business acumen and investor openness, poised to capitalize on what appears to be a very buoyant gold market coming in 2024 and beyond.
