Unternehmensbeschreibung

Metallic Minerals Corp. - Silber Exploration - Erfolgreich mitten im rohstoffreichen Yukon-Territorium

Die kanadische Metallic Minerals konzentriert sich auf Exploration vielversprechender Silberprojekte im kanadischen Yukon. Im September 2017 konnte Metallic erste Claims alluvialer Goldvorkommen, ebenfalls im Yukon, sichern. Die in Vancouver ansässige Gesellschaft konnte für diese Claims bereits lukrative Royalty-Abkommen mit im alluvialen Goldabbau erfahrenen Produzenten abschließen. Diese Vereinbarungen sollen zukünftig Metallic erste Cash-Flows liefern.

Das Hauptprojekt von Metallic Minerals liegt im Silberdistrikt Keno Hill, in dem seit 1913 über
200 Mio. Unzen Silber gefördert wurden; übrigens wertmäßig genauso gut wie die gesamten Goldfunde in diesem geschichtsträchtigen rohstoffreichen Territorium.

Strategisch von größter Bedeutung ist dabei die Nachbarschaft zu den Silber-Projekten von Alexco Resources, auf denen die hochgradigsten Silberressourcen der Welt nachgewiesen wurden. Beide Unternehmen könnten eine sehr vielversprechende Symbiose eingehen. Denn Metallic Minerals hat seine Explorationstätigkeit bereits im Sommer 2017 auf den kontrollierten Gebieten begonnen. Da der angehende Silberproduzent Alexco seine Silberressource deutlich ausweiten konnte, wird diese voraussichtlich in 2018 wieder mit dem Abbau beginnen. Diese Erwartung wird unterstützt durch die inzwischen deutlich verbesserten Royalty-Stream-Konditionen mit dem Branchenprimus Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. Sollte es Metallic gelingen, Silberunzen in den umliegenden Gebieten nachzuweisen, wäre es sehr gut möglich, daß Alexco daran Interesse hat, diese zu verarbeiten und dadurch seine Kosten weiter zu senken. Diese Synergien sind auch für große Rohstoffkonzerne überaus attraktiv.

Die Infrastruktur in dieser Gegend ist bereits sehr gut. Trotzdem hat die kanadische Regierung erst kürzlich verkündet, daß sie mit dem Yukon Resource Gateway Project rund 247 Mio. CAD in das Highway-Netz des Territoriums investieren wird. Davon werden sämtliche in der Region tätige Gesellschaften profitieren.

Geleitet wird das Unternehmen von Yukon-Kenner Greg Johnson, der bereits große Explorationserfolge mit NovaGold, South American Silver und Wellgreen Platinum erzielen konnte. Er verfügt auch über ausgezeichnete Kontakte in der Finanzbranche, was seinen bisherigen Erfolg, insgesamt über 650 Mio. CAD an Eigenkapital für die von ihm geleiteten Unternehmen aufgenommen zu haben, unterstreicht.

Keno-Silber stellt die zweitgrößte Landposition des Distrikts dar und 10 der 12 bekannten hochgradigen Vererzungstrends verlaufen auf dem Projektgelände. Zudem liegen zahlreiche historische Minen auf dem Gebiet, darunter fünf mit durchschnittlichen Abbaugehalten von mehr als 5.000 Gramm Silber pro Tonne. Grabenproben von diversen Zielgebieten auf dem Keno-Projekt erbrachten bis zu 3.168 Gramm Silber pro Tonne (zzgl. 4,67 g/t Au) und Bohrungen wiesen sogar bis zu 4.027 Gramm Silber je Tonne nach. Metallic hat nun im Mai diesen Jahres geophysikalische Untersuchungen eingeleitet. Nach der Entnahme von Oberflächenproben sowie Kartierungen wurde nun das erste Bohrprogramm abgeschlossen, und man wartet jetzt gespannt auf die Gehalte und Mächtigkeiten der Vererzungen.

Das zweite Projekt des Unternehmens, McKay Hill, liegt 50 Kilometer nördlich des Keno-Hill Silbercamps und beherbergt eine ehemals produzierende Mine, auf der 143 Tonnen mit durchschnittlich 390 Gramm Silber pro Tonne gefördert wurden. McKay Hill grenzt an den nordwestlichen Teil von ATAC Resources‘ Goldprojekt Rackla. Metallic Minerals hat bereits einige sehr aussichtsreiche Silber- und Goldziele identifiziert.

Für künftigen Cash-Flow des Explorers sollen – inzwischen zwei – Royalty-Abkommen mit Gold-Produzenten sorgen, die in den neu erworbenen Gebieten am Lower Australia Creek (36,4 qkm) und Dominion Creek (1,6 km Flußlänge), beides Nebenflüsse des Indian-Rivers, alluvialen Goldabbau betreiben werden. 12% bzw. 15% der gesamten Goldproduktionen fliessen dann in die Kassen von Metallic. Ziel ist es nun, auch für die restlichen Gebiete im District solche Vereinbarungen abzuschließen.
