Rise Gold was the subject of a piece by me back in early 2017. Anyone interested in the company should read the piece. The purchase by the company of the Idaho-Maryland gold mine for $2 million was an extraordinary deal for Rise.
Rise just released the most interesting results. Remember, this is a former gold mine shut down in 1942 as a result of the war. At the time it was the 2nd highest-grade gold mine in the US showing a head grade of over ½ ounce gold per ton. The latest assays showed 90.4 g/t over 4.7 meters and another assay of 35.6 g/t Au over .90 meters. Historic records show the mines had reserves of 705,000 ounces of gold at a grade of about 23 g/t in 1942. The gold hasn't gone anywhere since.
This would be just another boring story about a former high-grade gold mine in California that some promoters are pushing in a pipe dream about going into production again except for one tiny factor. In their March 1, 2019 press release Rise reported that Yamana (YRI-T) bought an additional 10 million shares bringing their total up to 28 million shares and 14 million warrants.
Yamana is not buying shares in some pipe-dream junior with grandiose ideas about the future in the hope of making a profit on trading the shares. At some point they will make an offer. Look for it to be a lot higher than today's price.
Rise Gold was an advertiser two years ago. They are not an advertiser today. I participated in a private placement years ago and have picked up shares in the open market. I am biased. Do your own due diligence.
