Metalla Royalty & Streaming Provides Update On Gosselin & CÔtÉ Royalty And 2024 Catalysts

26.02.2024  |  CNW
Beedie Capital to increase equity ownership to 9.99% with additional C$1.5 million investment

VANCOUVER, Feb. 26, 2024 - Metalla Royalty & Streaming Ltd. ("Metalla") (NYSE American: MTA) (TSXV: MTA) is pleased to report the 2024 portfolio catalysts and the updated Mineral Resource estimates for Gosselin, where Metalla holds a 1.35% Net Smelter Return ("NSR") royalty that covers the northern portion of Côté and 100% of the Gosselin deposit.

IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD") (TSX: IMG) (NYSE: IAG) announced by press release on February 15, 20241 that the updated Gosselin Mineral Resource estimate increased, for a total of 4.4 million Indicated gold ounces in 161.3 million tonnes ("Mt") at 0.85 grams per tonne gold ("g/t Au"), and 3.0 million Inferred ounces (123.9 Mt at 0.75 g/t Au). This represents an estimated increase of 1.1 million ounces in Indicated and 1.3 million ounces in Inferred, representing a 32% and 74% increase respectively.

Brett Heath, President & CEO of Metalla commented, "Gosselin continues to show that it has potential to become a very significant asset. In 2023 we saw an increase of 2.4 million ounces from 57 diamond drill holes totaling 34,790 meters. Gosselin stands as a substantial deposit on its own with 7.4 million ounces. Combined with Côté, they host an estimated Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource of 16.5 million ounces, and an additional 4.2 million ounces of Inferred resources. This places the project in an elite league among global gold mines of large scale. In the upcoming year, IAMGOLD indicated that it will focus on further exploration with a 35,000-meter drill hole program at Gosselin, aiming to probe potential extensions of the breccias between resource pits, as well as delving deeper beneath the mineralized envelopes to ascertain the full extent of these promising deposits."

According to IAMGOLD, drilling to date suggests the Gosselin deposit has the potential to approach similar dimensions as the adjacent Côté deposit. Drill intercepts obtained from the newly discovered West Breccia have significantly expanded this breccia body which now measures 250 meters by 170 meters and extends for a depth of approximately 400 meters. This has helped to highlight a highly prospective corridor at depth measuring up to 850 meters in strike length that remains to be tested between the Gosselin West Breccia and the Côté Deposit hydrothermal breccia. This represents a priority exploration opportunity to further expand the Gosselin resource below the 600-meter vertical depth extent of the current 2023 resources pit shell.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

Metalla has included certain performance measures in this press release that do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) including attributable gold equivalent ounces (GEOs). The Company believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's performance and ability to generate cash flow.

Attributable GEOs are a non-IFRS financial measure that is composed of gold ounces attributable to the Company, plus an amount calculated by taking the expected revenue by the Company from payable silver ounces, copper pounds, lead pounds and zinc pounds attributable to the Company, less material costs, divided by the price of gold. The Company presents attributable GEOs as it believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's performance in comparison to other streaming and royalty companies in the precious metals mining industry who present attributable ounces on a similar basis

The presentation of these non-IFRS financial measures is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Other companies may calculate these non-IFRS financial measures differently.

Technical and Third-Party Information

Metalla has limited, if any, access to the properties on which Metalla holds a royalty, stream or other interest. Metalla is dependent on (i) the operators of the mines or properties and their qualified persons to provide technical or other information to Metalla, or (ii) publicly available information to prepare disclosure pertaining to properties and operations on the mines or properties on which Metalla holds a royalty, stream or other interest, and generally has limited or no ability to independently verify such information. Although Metalla does not have any knowledge that such information may not be accurate, there can be no assurance that such third-party information is complete or accurate. Some information publicly reported by operators may relate to a larger property than the area covered by Metalla's royalty, stream or other interests. Metalla's royalty, stream or other interests can cover less than 100% and sometimes only a portion of the publicly reported mineral reserves, resources and production of a property.
