Exploration Update

The Company is pleased to provide a fieldwork update with respect to its four highly prospective Fiji Projects.  


Access road construction into the Rama Creek Cu-Au Porphyry is progressing. Upon completion the Rama Creek road will provide reliable and cost effective access for the advancement of this key asset.  In addition, the Company is currently interpreting the results of an additional 60 surface rock and trench samples submitted for Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Terraspec spectral analysis designed to further define the proximal sericite and core zone potassic altered porphyry intrusive rocks at Rama Creek, and apparent highly potassium altered lithologies at the Liwa Creek epithermal gold prospect (see the Company’s May 17, 2018, News Release).  


Thunderstruck crews recently commenced exploration at Liwa Creek. Fieldwork recently completed has included detailed geologic mapping designed to refine potential diamond drill targets at the Liwa Ridge, Jensen’s and Gun gold zones; and collection of an additional 140 ridge-and-spur auger soil samples is underway (see the Company’s February 13, 2018, News Release).


During early July 2018, the Company conducted a logistical and geological reconnaissance of its high-grade Wainaleka and Nakoro Zn-Cu Volcanic-Hosted Massive Sulphide (VHMS) prospects, where prior drilling by Anglo American returned average grades of 8% Zn, 2% Cu and 11.6% Zn, 0.64% Cu respectively.  Discovery outcrops at both prospects were examined, and the locations of historic drill collars were scouted and recorded in an effort to improve our existing 3D geological model.

Towards advancement of the Company’s Zn-Cu massive sulphide assets; J. Bruce Gemmell, Ph.D. (Gemmell Geoscience), was commissioned to conduct a review of the Wainaleka and Nakoro prospects. Dr. Gemmell is past Director of the world leading ARC Centre for Excellence in Ore Deposits (CODES) at the University of Tasmania from 2014-2017, and is a recognized expert with respect to VHMS deposits.

Key conclusions from the Gemmell Geoscience report regarding the Company’s Wainaleka and Nakoro VHMS prospects included:

  • The significantly underexplored nature of the Wainaleka and Nakoro prospects,

  • Presence of numerous poly-metallic lens/sheet, sub-seafloor replacement-type VHMS prospects with a high likelihood of further discovery,

  • Recognition that the Wainaleka and Nakoro prospects are of the sub-seafloor, replacement-style, which expands the exploration space within Wainimala Group volcanic host rocks.

  • Sub-seafloor replacement-style VHMS deposits often occur in particular strata, but not always in the same position, hence, there is increase discovery space and opportunity.

Thunderstruck will continue to advance all four assets over the coming months, and will provide corporate and exploration updates as assays are completed. Concurrently, the Company is engaged in active discussions with potential joint venture parties.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 23, 2018) – Bravada Gold Corporation (TSXV: BVA) (OTCQB: BGAVF) (FSE: BRTN) (the “Company” or “Bravada”) announces that the previously announced $480,000 non-brokered private placement has been oversubscribed and Bravada will now issue 6,584,000 units (“Units”) in a non-brokered private placement at a price of $0.08 per Unit for gross proceeds of $526,720. Each Unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant, with each warrant exercisable to purchase one additional common share for a period of four years at an exercise price of $0.12 per share. Securities issued pursuant to this private placement, including common shares and share purchase warrants, carry a legend restricting trading of the securities until November 24, 2018.

Net proceeds from the private placement will be used for property maintenance fees, permitting fees and associated ancillary costs as well as accounts payable and for working capital. Finders’ fees and commissions will be paid by the Company in relation to the units sold in this Offering.

President Joe Kizis commented, “This quick, oversold financing demonstrates staunch support for the Company by our significant shareholders and places Bravada in an enviable position of maintaining its portfolio of high-quality exploration/development projects in Nevada, one of the world’s most prolific and attractive gold-mining regions. Bravada owns or controls 1,169 lode mining claims (approximately 9,460 hectares or 23,380 acres or 36 square miles) and has developed attractive drill-ready targets on most of its properties. Permitting has been completed to drill test those targets at Wind Mountain and, subject to posting of bonds, at Quito, SF, and East Manhattan. Consequently, there is strong interest in the Company’s eight projects that are still available for joint venture.”

About Bravada

Bravada is an exploration company with a portfolio of high-quality properties in Nevada, one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world. During the past 12 years the Company has successfully identified and advanced properties that have the potential to host high-margin deposits while successfully attracting partners to fund later stages of project development. Currently, three of Bravada’s eleven Nevada properties are being funded by partners. As well, there are no NSR-type royalties to vendors that cannot be significantly reduced. Bravada’s value is underpinned by a significant gold and silver resource with a positive PEA at Wind Mountain and has significant upside potential from possible new discoveries at its exploration properties, most of which host significant drill intercepts of gold and which have drill targets developed by the Company.

Vatic Potash Project Update

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 23, 2018) – Vatic Ventures Corp. (TSXV: VCV) (OTC Pink: VTTCF) (FSE: V8V2) (the “Company” or “Vatic”) reports that it mobilized for the initial drilling program at its Saksrithai potash project in early-May, but the commencement of drilling has been impacted by continuing heavy rainfall in the project area. Localized flooding and deterioration of the unpaved roads within the rural license areas has prevented access to the selected drilling locations. Accordingly, the Company has released the Drilling Contractor and plans to reschedule commencement of drilling following the end of the rainy season (October/November) by which time the local farmers will have harvested their crops within the area.

In the meantime, the Company continues its community relations programs to ensure cooperation and support from the various local and regional community stakeholders. The Company is taking advantage of the delay to undertake additional seismic data interpretation in the area.

Dr. Gerry Wright, the Company’s CEO commented: “It is disappointing that the program has been delayed but the opportunity to complete additional review of the seismic data will enable the Company to optimize our drill site targets. We are optimistic that the Saksrithai project will host a strategic potash resource, with a ready market in the immediate Southeast Asia region.”

About Saksrithai Development Co. Ltd.

Saksrithai Development Co. Ltd. (“Saksrithai”) is a private Thai company in which the Company holds an 80% shareholding. Saksrithai holds two contiguous Special Prospecting Licenses (SPLs) for potash exploration, within the Khorat evaporite basin. This basin, located in northeast Thailand and extending partly into Laos, covers an area of some 130,000 km². Potash was discovered in the basin in the mid-1970s and according to Hite and Japakasetr (1979)*: “the Khorat Plateau of northeastern Thailand and central Laos has outlined what may develop into one of the world’s largest potash deposits”. Both sylvinite and carnallite minerals are present in the basin.

SEC Charges Mizuho Securities for Failure to Safeguard Customer Information

Washington, D.C.–(Newsfile Corp. – July 23, 2018) – The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged Mizuho Securities USA LLC for its failure to safeguard information pertaining to stock buybacks by its issuer customers.  Mizuho failed to maintain and enforce policies and procedures aimed at preventing the misuse of material nonpublic information, including maintaining effective information barriers between different trading desks and requiring employees to keep client information confidential.  Mizuho agreed to settle the charges and will pay a $1.25 million penalty.

According to the SEC’s order, during a two-year period, Mizuho traders regularly disclosed material nonpublic customer buyback information to other traders and Mizuho’s hedge fund clients.  That information included the identity of the party placing the order, the order size, limit price, and indications that the orders were buyback orders. Such information was routinely communicated across trading desks, notwithstanding that during the relevant period Mizuho executed over 99.8 percent of all buyback orders by using algorithms, rather than through trader-negotiated open market trades. 

“Confidential information concerning issuer stock buybacks can be material to institutional investors, particularly when such trading comprises a significant portion of the daily trading volume in the stock being repurchased,” said Antonia Chion, Associate Director of the SEC Division of Enforcement.  “Broker-dealers must be attentive to their responsibilities to maintain and enforce policies and procedures to prevent the misuse of such information.”

The SEC’s order finds that Mizuho willfully violated Section 15(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  Without admitting or denying the SEC’s findings, Mizuho consented to the order imposing a $1.25 million penalty, a censure, and ordering it to cease and desist from committing or causing any future violations.  

The SEC’s investigation was conducted by Drew M. Dorman, Greg Hillson, and Kevin Gershfeld.  The case was supervised by Yuri B. Zelinsky and Ms. Chion.  Assisting in the investigation were Chyhe Becker and Cathy Niden in the SEC’s Division of Economic and Risk Analysis and Sarah Heaton Concannon in the Enforcement Division’s Trial Unit.
