(“Agnico”) (see EMX and Gold Line Press Releases of March 22, 2021). The property extends alongside the path of the greenstone belt to the southwest and northeast of the Oijärvi gold venture. EMX will retain the NSR royalty on the Oijärvi extension to complement its proper to buy a 1% NSR on the Oijärvi gold venture for US $ 1 million. This additional expands EMX’s royalty publicity to incorporate all the Oijärvi greenstone belt.
The Oijärvi extension is taken into account very potential in gentle of Agnico’s success in Oijärvi, the place it delineated the Kylmäkangas deposit with a historic useful resource reported at 1.89 million tonnes (Mt) grading 4.11 grams per tonne (g / t) gold (Au) yielding 250,000 oz Au and 31.11 g / t silver (Ag) yielding 1,896,000 oz Ag.
Comparatively little exploration has taken place outdoors of the Kylmäkangas space. A complete of 217 holes have been drilled within the bigger Oijärvi greenstone belt outdoors of Kylmäkangas with a median depth of round 150 meters. Most of this drilling occurred in extensively spaced fences from historic holes drilled by the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) alongside the path of the greenstone belt (see Determine 1). This represents low drilling density in an in any other case potential belt-scale property.
Overview of buying and selling circumstances.

These AAR funds could also be made in gold bullion, its money equal or its equal worth in Gold Line shares, topic to sure circumstances.
- Gold Line may even reimburse EMX for its prices of buying the Oijärvi extension.
Oijärvi gold venture
The Oijärvi Gold Undertaking is a sophisticated 1,641 hectare exploration venture situated roughly 350 kilometers (km) south of the Kittilä mine in Agnico and 85 km east of the city of Kemi, Finland. The venture is situated in an Archean Age greenstone belt (referred to as the Oijärvi Greenstone Belt), similar to these discovered elsewhere in Finland and the Canadian Protect. The venture accommodates a number of zones of gold mineralization highlighted by the drill-defined Kylmäkangas deposit, with its historic inferred mineral assets. The Kylmäkangas zone stays open at depth and alongside the southwest and northeast path, and there may be proof of different parallel gold mineralized traits elsewhere on the Undertaking.
Extensions of the Oijärvi greenstone belt
The Oijärvi greenstone belt stretches an extra 20 kilometers northeast of Kylmäkangas and 5 kilometers to the southwest. EMX and Gold Line consider that all the belt holds nice promise for brand new discoveries. Notably, the reconnaissance drilling 1.8 km southwest of the Kylmäkangas deposit additionally intersected gold mineralization in the identical stratigraphic place as Kylmäkangas with little or no drilling in between.

Agnico’s Kylmäkangas Au-Ag historic useful resource estimate was based mostly on: angular core drilling and fireplace evaluation of half core samples, a 3D mannequin of geological checks (p. Based mostly on ‘Reconciled cross-section and aircraft interpretations, inverse distance squared interpolation with controls to investigate outliers that included a grade cap, and ratios based mostly on a 2 g / t cut-off grade.
The close by mines and deposits mentioned on this launch present context for the tasks, which occur in an analogous geological setting, however this doesn’t essentially imply that the tasks harbor comparable mineralization.
