CAT Strategic Metals Closes Second, and Last, Tranche of Personal Placement


As traders try to mitigate the dangers related to the commodities cycle whereas nonetheless gaining publicity to its wealthy alternatives, useful resource firms with diversified portfolios could present an thrilling resolution.

Diversified steel portfolios, versus restricted particular person steel sectors, are hedged in opposition to worth declines for a given commodity offering a much less dangerous and extra priceless funding for traders. Portfolio diversification additionally permits mining firms to enhance money circulation and capitalize on the width and breadth of steel and mineral markets whereas managing fluctuating commodity values.

One such firm is CAT Strategic Metals (CSE:CAT, OTC:CATTF, FRA:8CH), a mineral exploration firm targeted on the acquisition and exploration of diversified and strategic North American mineral tasks. The corporate’s present tasks embody a variety of minerals and metals together with gold, silver, uranium, copper and tellurium.

“We search for undervalued tasks which have already had publicity, that already had some work accomplished up to now, that possibly had been deserted over time for a wide range of causes, however nonetheless have good potential going ahead,” mentioned CAT Strategic Metals CEO Robert Rosner in an interview with INN.
CAT Strategic Metals employs a hybrid mannequin that seeks out, analyzes, and acquires tasks which have sturdy potential given previous numerous mineral outputs and supporting samples.

Key Initiatives

Rimrock Mission

The Rimrock undertaking is positioned within the Elko district of Nevada, US close to Hecla Mining Firm’s Hollister Nevada and Midas Nevada mines, which thus far have yielded 0.5 million ounces of high-grade gold-silver and a couple of.2 million ounces of high-grade gold and 25 million ounces of silver, respectively. The property sits on the Carlin Development and the Midas Development, that are prolific gold mine producing areas. The undertaking additionally has an intensive infrastructure to assist year-round operation on the 1,162-hectare land package deal.

The Rimrock undertaking is a multi-target gold and silver system located 15 km southeast of Hecla Mining’s high-grade Midas gold-silver mine, 13 km from new high-grade Inexperienced Racer Sinter gold-silver discovery and three km north of its Hollister gold-silver mine. Rimrock has the potential for shallow epithermal techniques, much like the Midas and Hollister mines, that are low sulfidation, high-grade gold deposits, and the potential for deeper Carlin-type gold deposits.

Mapping, sampling, gravity, and drone MAG survey applications have been accomplished in 2021, and a excessive decision deep-seeking Induced polarization survey is now underway. Geologic mapping and rock-chip sampling has uncovered three new gold-silver drilling targets, bringing CAT Strategic Metals a complete of 5 drilling targets to pursue in coming months.

Gold Jackpot Mission

The Gold Jackpot undertaking is positioned within the Elko district in northeastern Nevada, US which is believed to host a porphyry copper-, Emperor, Fiji-style Au-Te, Carlin-style Au, and Midas-style gold-silver exploration fashions. The undertaking’s area is very mineralized and sits on the Pequop Gold-Copper Development, positioned east of the Battle Mountain-Eureka Development, Getchell Development and Carlin Developments, that are copper- and gold-rich areas. The undertaking is positioned close to high-yielding copper and gold mines equivalent to Lengthy Canyon, Robinson Copper-Gold, Phoenix Copper-Gold, Turquoise Ridge/Getchell Mine, Twin Creeks, Goldstrike and Carlin-Mike Cu-Bluestar-Exodus.

Gold Jackpot has had substantial historic exploration accomplished from the Nineteen Eighties to the early 2000s together with 27 drill holes accomplished by Tenneco from 1988 to 1989. The undertaking has a number of exploration targets together with the Carlin-style gold goal that sampled as much as 16 g/t of gold, a diatreme-porphyry copper-gold system and the gold-silver-tellurium-gold-silver goal that yielded as much as 4 kg/t of tellurium.

Interpretation of a drone-based magnetic, ground-based gravity surveys and induced polarization traces on the have been accomplished and outlined two distinct geophysical anomalies in two places. The surveys have additionally confirmed that the southern anomalies signify a diatreme-porphyry-style goal, whereas the northern anomalies signify a Carlin-style gold goal.
Planning for a observe up exploration program is underway.

South Preston Mission (Uranium)

The South Preston undertaking is positioned southwest of the uranium-rich area of the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, Canada.

The undertaking has greater than 10 km of adjoining property bordering NexGen Power Ltd. which just lately found the high-grade Arrow uranium deposit. One other current discovery within the area belongs to Fission Uranium Corp. which found the Triple R uranium Lake South deposit. The undertaking additionally has greater than 18.5 km of a steady boundary with Orano which is a number one international uranium producer. Moreover, South Preston has 50 km of contiguous declare border with Azincourt Power Company.

The South Preston undertaking may probably host the extension of a precedence uranium exploration hall extending from NexGen Power Ltd.’s Rook-1 Mission to Azincourt Power Corp.’s East Preston Uranium undertaking close by.

Burntland Mission (Copper, Silver and Gold)

The Burntland Mission is positioned within the northern portion of New Brunswick, Canada in a area with high-grade silver, gold and copper potential. The undertaking is accessible year-round with highways and logging roads. Burntland is positioned close to the large-scale VMS Bathurst mining district and is adjoining to McKenzie and Rocky Brook regional fault techniques.

Mineralization within the space is hosted inside skarns, proximal to intruding porphyry dykes. Assay outcomes present high-grade copper mineralization as excessive as 16.3 p.c Cu and silver mineralization as excessive as 220 g/t Ag. The undertaking has 5 targets which might be believed to include copper mineralization in porphyry techniques primarily based on related geological elements.

The corporate has accomplished a drone MAG survey in 2021 to detect and delineate key geological targets. Further excessive decision Quadri-MAG, VLF, Heli Borne Survey is deliberate for the autumn, with diamond drilling deliberate for fall/winter of 2021.
