    Portofino arranges $300,000 private placement

    2020-04-27 13:05 MT - News Release


    Mr. David Tafel reports

    PORTOFINO ANNOUNCES $300,000 FINANCING

    Portofino Resources Inc., due to overwhelming interest in its previously announced, oversubscribed $550,000 private placement, the company has arranged a $300,000 placement consisting of up to six million units priced at five cents per unit. Portofino insiders intend to subscribe for a minimum 2 million units.

    Each Unit consists of one common share and one 2-year common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant is exercisable for one Common Share of the Company for a period of 24 months from closing at an exercise price of $0.05.

    David Tafel, Portofino's CEO comments: "We appreciate the strong support from our current shareholders and new investors during a tumultuous and uncertain economic time and we are determined to work hard to increase our Company's value. Due to Exchange restrictions on the amount of funds the Company could accept into the previous ($0.035) financing and the market value at time of closing (April 24), insiders decided not to invest to ensure maximum availability for non-insider investors. Insiders will instead invest in the current, higher priced ($0.05) placement."

    Proceeds from this financing shall be used by the Company for project exploration activities, currently focused on its South of Otter (Red Lake) gold project and general corporate purposes which includes pursuing other potential precious metal project opportunities. The South of Otter property hosts targets for both Red Lake-style gold mineralization, as well as gold bearing base metal prospects. Historical work on the property includes prospecting, sampling, airborne magnetic geophysical surveys as well as limited drilling.

    Closing of this financing will be subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and any shares issued will be subject to a four-month hold period.

    February 2020 Streetwise Report On Portofino Resources Inc.

    https://www.streetwisereports.com/a...s-exploring-the-red-lake-mining-district.html

    Last September Portofino Resources Inc. (POR:TSX.V; POT:FSE) announced a binding agreement for the right to acquire a 100% interest in mining claims in the famous Red Lake mining district of Ontario. Portofino joins both majors and juniors including Australia-listed Evolution Mining and Canada-listed Yamana, Great Bear Resources, Premier Gold Mines, Pure Gold, Rubicon Minerals, Pacton Gold, BTU Metals and GoldOn Resources.

    Portofino's block comprises 14 mining claims covering ~5,120 hectares. The claims are near investment crowd favorite Dixie project, being drilled out by Great Bear Resources (GBR). GBR's latest results from a fully financed 200,000-meter drill program were impressive. One of several intervals was 48.7 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) over 8.7 meters (m), including 1.2m @ 281.9 g/t Au.

    Gold price had its best year (2019) in a decade….

    So, ultra, high-grade Au mineralization, found at shallow depth (under 300m), across multiple drill programs in 2017–2019. GBR has a market cap of $440 million. Portofino's 5,120- hectare "South of Otter" property is less than 10 km east of GBR's 9,140-hectare flagship project.

    If South of Otter hosts anything good, which remains to be seen, it might be high-grade Au, like Dixie, or high-grade copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) mineralization, like that found on other nearby properties.

    I'm shamelessly playing the close-olgy card here, but only because GBR is one of the best gold junior stories of the past decade, up ~5,600% from $0.165 in 4Q 2016 to $9.40 today. In fact, several juniors have done quite well. Pure Gold Mining is up ~1,020% since 4Q 2015. BTU Metals is up nearly 500% since 3Q 2018. One more, GoldON Resources, is up ~700% since 1Q 2019.



    That's four Red Lake juniors with spectacular share price success. Four out of roughly 16 (25%) publicly traded companies with all, or substantially all, of their gold and/or base metals assets in and around Red Lake, Ontario. Portofino, with a market cap of just $1 million is perhaps the smallest player in the entire district. Yet, its under-explored property is both sizable and meaningfully prospective.

    South of Otter is located within a geological setting that hosts the past-producing South Bay Mine (1.6 Mt @ 11.1% Zn, 1.8% Cu and 2.1 oz./t silver (Ag). GBR's Dixie project is also on this trend. In addition to being on trend, Portofino's property lies in a similar geological and structural setting.

    Two historical operators, Goldcorp (recently acquired by Newmont) and Tri Origins, compiled a vast amount of geophysical data that mapped structures within the South of Otter claims. Portofino has commenced geophysical and geochemical surveys to further understand the geology and mineralization associated with past discoveries, which lie just north of the property but strike onto Portofino's claims.

    Red Lake exploration program started last week

    These surveys will provide Portofino with the data required to effectively target both gold and base metal mineralization and identify similar structures for exploration that are being explored along trend by companies including Great Bear Resources and BTU Metals. BTU recently reported an intercept of 44.3m of 1.14% Cu Eq, with intervals of up to 5.56% Cu, 99.6 g/t Ag plus 2 g/t Au.



    Portofino's CEO David Tafel stated,

    "We have been able to acquire a very prospective land package in a known gold mining camp proximal to the Dixie project which has recently produced multiple high-grade gold discoveries by Great Bear Resources. This acquisition allows us to diversify our project portfolio while we continue to advance our lithium projects."

    The South of Otter property is ~40 km southeast of the town of Red Lake, Ontario, and less than 10 km east of GBR's Dixie Lake. Historical work on the claims included prospecting, sampling and limited diamond drilling.

    With the gold price up US$300/oz (+24%) from the low of 2019, management is wisely seizing an opportunity to conduct meaningful programs that may, in part, be guided by ongoing successes at neighboring projects. Active drill programs are underway on properties in virtually every direction from Portofino's South of Otter property. In fact, one of the most aggressive drill campaigns in Canada (200,000 meters) is being done by Great Bear.

    Portofino Resources' South of Otter Property

    To earn 100% interest in South of Otter, Portofino has agreed to issue 500k shares and make payments over a four-year period totaling $70,000. The property vendor will retain a 1.5% Net Smelter Return (NSR), of which one half, (0.75%), can be purchased for $400,000.



    Management has completed a review of all available historical assessment work on the South of Otter property and has announced an initial exploration plan starting this week. According to the press release,

    "The first phase of Portofino's 2020 exploration program consists of ~25-line km of ground VLF/EM geophysics and soil geochemistry surveys. The objective is to delineate mineralized structures related to past gold and base metal discoveries in the region and outline targets for follow-up trenching and drilling. Multiple gold, copper and zinc deposits / prospects have been discovered both immediately to the north and south of the claim boundaries."

    Utilizing historical geological and airborne magnetic surveys has enabled the company to advance its exploration program rapidly and cost effectively. Combined with the new data to be collected from the upcoming program, the company expects to delineate mineralized structures related to past gold and base metal discoveries and outline targets for follow-up trenching and drilling.

    Portofino's property contains excellent targets for both Red Lake-style Au mineralization as well as gold-bearing base metal prospects. Historical work includes prospecting, sampling, plus limited drilling, as well as airborne magnetic geophysical surveys commissioned by a previous operator.

    Portofino's brine lithium prospects in Argentina are highly prospective

    Readers may recall that Portofino Resources is also known as a lithium play. It has locked up (through favorable option structures) three projects in the heart of the Lithium Triangle.


    In the first half of 2019, Portofino continued to move the ball forward on two of its three projects. Although it's too early to know if the company has good lithium assets, one of its projects, Hombre Muerto West (HMW), is in the single best salar in Argentina—salar del Hombre Muerto.

    Neighbors in and around Hombre Muerto include Livent Corp. (formerly FMC), Korean giant POSCO and Australia-listed Galaxy Resources. Last year, POSCO famously paid ~$364 million to Galaxy for 17,500 hectares, that's ~$20,800/ha. That land package reportedly had a 2.54 million tonne LCE Indicated + Inferred resource.

    Over the past few months, a number of lithium juniors and producers have seen significant rebounds in their share prices. Eight well-known names—Neo Lithium, Advantage Lithium, Lithium Americas, Ganfeng, Livent, Wealth Minerals, Standard Lithium and Bacanora—are up an average of 125% from 52-week lows.

    Gold sentiment is high and lithium sentiment might be turning. Portofino now has two segments (lithium and gold), each of which could be worth considerably more than the company's entire market cap of just $1 million.

    It's early days, but a raging bull market in precious metals (underway?) and/or a bounce in lithium prices could draw attention to Portofino Resources (TSX-V: POR) this year and next.

    Portofino Resources: Searching for Gold in the Red Hot, Red Lake District

    https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/portofino-resources-searching-gold-red-hot-lake-district-ali-sinawi/

    Published on May 12, 2020

    Capital Markets | Marketing | Financing | Connector of People, Capital & Ideas

    As capital market professionals and speculative investors, we are all looking for opportunities during this exciting gold market, and the Red Lake Mining District of Ontario has been making big headlines.

    As recently as today, Great Bear Resources (GBR) announced they upsized their previously announced C$20.0 Million Bought Deal Private Placement to C$33 Million at a price of $17 per flow-through share and 725,000 common shares at a price of $11.04 per common share.
    This was announced a day after GBR intersected the widest high-grade gold interval in the Dixie Limb zone to-date, assaying 10.19 g/t gold over 19.00 metres, which included 68.59 g/t gold over 2.65 metres, which in turn included 133.50 g/t gold over 1.00 metre.

    GBR has been one of the best gold stories of the past decade, up ~6,600% from $0.165 in 4Q 2016 to over $11.00 today, with a market cap of $500+M.

    Additionally in the area, Pure Gold announced that it is on track to open Red Lake mine this year which produced 2.5 million ounces of gold between 1938 and 1976. The asset was briefly put back into production in the late 1990s before the collapse in the gold price.

    It’s clear the Red Lake District still has a lot of gold to be found and investors continue to place their bets there.

    So when the opportunity to make an early investment in this great gold district arises, investors tend to not shy away leaving junior exploration companies with oversubscribed private placements.

    Portofino Resources (TSX-V: POR) is one of those oversubscribed junior exploration companies. In fact, they ran two separate private placements to meet the demand.

    On May 5, 2020, TSX-V: POR announced the close of back-to-back oversubscribed financings for a total proceeds of $882,500, with insiders subscribing for 2 million units on the second round.

    With approx. 40 million shares outstanding and with a market cap of approx. $2.4 million, the company plans to advance its Red Lake gold project as well as aggressively pursue additional potential “company maker” acquisitions.

    Last September, Portofino Resources (TSX-V: POR) announced a binding agreement for the right to acquire a 100% interest in mining claims in the famous Red Lake mining district of Ontario, Canada.

    Portofino joins both majors & juniors including Australian-listed; Evolution Mining and Canadian-listed; Yamana, Great Bear Resources, Premier Gold Mines, Pure Gold, Rubicon Minerals, Pacton Gold, BTU Metals and GoldOn Resources.

    Portofino’s block comprises 14 mining claims covering ~5,120 hectares. The claims are near the investment crowd favorite Dixie project, being drilled out by Great Bear Resources (GBR).

    No alt text provided for this image
    The South of Otter project is situated north of a major regional fault, wherein numerous gold prospects including the Dixie Project (less than 10 km east of South of Otter) have been discovered.

    The project is also located along trend of historically development mineral deposits such as Inmet’s South Bay Mine (1.6Mt @ 2.3% Cu, 14.7% Zn, 3.5 opt Ag.), WMC International‘s CopperLode (425,000t @ 1.56% Cu, 0.98 opt Ag), and Noranda‘s Copperlode East (160,000t @ 1.02 % Cu, 8.28% Zn, 0.39 opt Ag)

    With Portofino commencing its exploration program on the property, a strong gold market, and continued activity in the Red Lake district, I believe this is a story you should watch unfold over the coming months.

    If you have any questions about Portofino Resources (TSX-V: POR), please don't hesitate to leave a comment or send me a Direct Message. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Regards,

    Ali

    News Release: Portofino Identifies 3 Significant Conductors in Geophysical Program

    2020-05-14 06:00 MT - News Release

    Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 14, 2020) - PORTOFINO RESOURCES INC. (TSXV: POR) (FSE: POTA) ("Portofino" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it has received results from its 19-line kilometer ("km") winter geophysical program. The program consisted of a Very-Low Frequency (VLF) Electromagnetic (EM) survey. This survey method is widely used in gold exploration and has been proven effective in delineating geological contacts and mineralized shear zones in the Red Lake Mining Camp and along the Confederation Lake greenstone belt.

    The property has been subject to large-scale geophysical surveys by past operators specifically designed to target base metals. In 2001, Goldcorp Inc. completed a property wide compilation and interpretation of the historic ground and airborne magnetic data to investigate economic mineralization on the property and assess the potential for gold mineralization. Goldcorp outlined a significant target area for gold mineralization encompassed by the South of Otter Project, but due to a lack of outcrop rocks, a limited amount of follow-up work was completed.

    Portofino designed the winter VLF-EM survey to refine the gold mineralization target area and identify specific target areas for prospecting, trenching, and drilling. The survey successfully delineated 3 significant conductors over a 1.6-kilometer strike length. These conductors are interpreted to be shear zones along the contact of intermixed volcanic units and a large granitoid intrusion and correspond with magnetic breaks defined by Goldcorp's 2001 interpretation. This suggests the structures are deep seated and continue along strike and beyond Portofino's 19-line km VLF survey grid.

    The prospective targets delineated in the VLF survey occur along splays of the Pakwash-Longlegged Fault system within the Portofino claim boundary. This fault system is a major regional structure along the Confederation Lake assemblage and continues into the LP Fault Zone, hosting Great Bear Resources Ltd.'s ("GBR") Dixie Project.

    It is noteworthy that pyrite, sphalerite, and chalcopyrite mineralization was observed in outcrops by the Company's field crew. Mineralization occurs within a strongly sheared felsic volcanic rock unit near the contact of a large felsic intrusive unit and the sulphide mineralization occurs along a significant conductor. A total of 6 samples were collected from surface near one of the conductors and have been submitted to Activation Laboratories for gold analysis.

    David Tafel, Portofino's CEO comments: "We are very encouraged by the extensive evidence of deposit-scale structures identified in the survey area and the correlation to the (Longlegged) fault zone running through our property and in close proximity to GBR's Dixie project that is associated with the same regional structure. In addition, and due to recent logging in the area, our survey crew discovered previously undetected outcropping rock types that are typically associated with gold mineralization."

    An exploration permit application has been submitted to the Ministry of Northern Mines and Development which outlines a significant trenching and drilling program to further delineate the gold bearing targets defined through the recent VLF survey.

    The 5,120 hectares (South of Otter) property is contained within the Birch-Uchi-Confederation Lakes greenstone belt which hosts the world-renowned Red Lake gold deposits and includes the Dixie project currently being drilled by GBR. GBR continues to report exciting drill results with mineralized intersections commonly returning bonanza gold grades in association with coarse visible gold grains. Portofino's property is located approximately 8 km east of GBR's claims.

    The Portofino property contains excellent targets for both Red Lake-style gold mineralization as well as gold bearing base metal prospects. Historical work on the claims included prospecting, sampling, limited drilling, and airborne magnetic geophysical surveys.

    A very interesting thing to note is that the mineralization found during Portofino’s exploration matches up with what GBR and BTU have also found. Now there’s a KEY NOTE from Great Bear that helps associate it with higher gold bearing anomalies:

    September 19th 2019: https://greatbearresources.ca/news/...-drilling-at-new-auro-zone-a-2.6-km-step-out/

    Great Bear Drills Multiple Gold Discoveries Along 3.2 km of the LP Fault at Dixie: Drilling at New “Auro” Zone, a 2.6 km Step-Out from Bear-Rimini, Intersects 101.71 g/t Gold Over 1.50 m Within 42.00 m of 5.28 g/t Gold at 80 m Depth; Yuma Zone Intercepts

    Gold mineralization associated with the LP Fault is not typical of the Red Lake district. Early observations suggest that gold is associated with a large-scale deformation zone near the contact between sediments and felsic volcanics. Accessory minerals include pyrite, sphalerite, and galena with minor chalcopyrite and arsenopyrite. Elevated lead, silver and zinc values are observed within higher grade gold intercepts.

    BTU REPORTS ASSAYS OF 2.27% COPPER EQUIVALENT* OVER 7.8 METRES AT TNT TARGET

    March 18th, 2020, Vancouver, BC, Canada – BTU METALS CORP. ("BTU" or the "Company") (BTU-TSX:V provides the following update on the Dixie Halo exploration work programs. Assay results from drill holes BTU-19-21 to 25, confirm the presence of a large alteration system at the TNT target. This alteration and associated mineralization which consists of varying amounts of pyrite and chalcopyrite, as well as minor amounts of sphalerite, galena and molybdenite is traceable using the induced polarization (“IP”) geophysical technique as well as electromagnetic methods. Hole 13 intercepted 44 m of 1.14% CuEq* including highlights of 5.56% Cu, 2 g/t Au and 99.6 g/t Ag. Hole 25, collared approximately 500 m to the east of 13 included assay highlights of 0.92 g/t Au, 5.86% Cu and 116 g/t Ag.

    The property has been subject to large-scale geophysical surveys by past operators specifically designed to target base metals. In 2001, Goldcorp Inc. completed a property wide compilation and interpretation of the historic ground and airborne magnetic data to investigate economic mineralization on the property and assess the potential for gold mineralization. Goldcorp outlined a significant target area for gold mineralization encompassed by the South of Otter Project, but due to a lack of outcrop rocks, a limited amount of follow-up work was completed

    It is noteworthy that pyrite, sphalerite, and chalcopyrite mineralization was observed in outcrops by the Company’s field crew. Mineralization occurs within a strongly sheared felsic volcanic rock unit near the contact of a large felsic intrusive unit and the sulphide mineralization occurs along a significant conductor. A total of 6 samples were collected from surface near one of the conductors and have been submitted to Activation Laboratories for gold analysis.


    David Tafel, Portofino’s CEO comments: “We are very encouraged by the extensive evidence of deposit-scale structures identified in the survey area and the correlation to the (Longlegged) fault zone running through our property and in close proximity to GBR’s Dixie project that is associated with the same regional structure. In addition, and due to recent logging in the area, our survey crew discovered previously undetected outcropping rock types that are typically associated with gold mineralization.”
