B2Gold aims for diversity, growth with CGA bid
VANCOUVER — Vancouver-based gold miner B2Gold (BTO-T) looks to be banking on its proven ability to operate successfully in difficult locales, as it moves forward with an US$1.1-billion, all-stock friendly bid for Australia’s CGA…
In BC’s Jade / Nephrite Mining Sector…
We are pleased to report that D1 D7 was sold (under contract at the moment) by our good associate in the Dease Lake region. As there is confidentiality issues to be mindful of we cannot make full disclosure of the particulars. What we can report is that the sale (pending final closing) is to a Chinese interest. We wish them well and are going to be pleased to help them in the future with operation support and consulting as well as being privy to the harvest that they realize from those claims.
I personally can’t wait to see the material they are sure to extract and again congratulations are in order, We hope that the closing is a smooth one and we welcome the new owner / operator to British Columbia.
2012 AUCTION DATE SET – OCTOBER 16 2012
A Sample of what we are likely to see up for auction this year:
WHITE JADE FOUND IN CANADA…
We have reason to believe that there is white jade coming through to us from a CANDIAN SOURCE. All that is pending is the Geologist reports. We are about to receive control test samples of this White “Jade” to do our own independent testing.
What we can report is that a government geological agency has tested the material that has been found and to the best of their knowledge IT IS NEPHRITE!
As white Jade is not routinely found in Canada there is much speculation and apprehension in announcing that this find is 100% verified.
We are working at securing the definitive geological analysis of this Jade.
We are so very excited at the prospect of this being the find that we hope it is.
Report on our survey work…
In the Liard district our geologist and partner has done extensive survey work on a number of the claims that where for sale and has come to a professional conclusion that a number of these claims have been worked out and his finding are that most of the leftover material are of C grade or lower quality.
Recent Jade Claims Sales In The Dease Lake Region…
Permits and interior claims issues.
Issues such as the ones that have popped up this season are a reminder to us in this sector how we must make clear and full disclosure in any transfer agreements / sales so as to avoid encumbering a project or sale down the road and mitigate the chances of litigation and lengthy court proceedings.
Where there is an overlapping of mineral and metal claims it is important that all interested parties are notified of such sale and or transfers and to be a member in good standing of the small and tight knit Jade producing community it is always important to make efforts to introduce your selves.
In the case of acquiring permits for operating it is important to make certain that compliance and approval from the Province of British Columbia is in order before any work is engaged in. British Columbia has been known to levy fines to offenders and or those with out officially approved applications and or permits.
It goes to show you that even among the most veteran operators the mining industry in particular contracts are never routine and that our government is aware of the regions operations and can / will intervene with operators who are not in compliance. Junior mining companies should take note and govern themselves accordingly.
WE HAVE PRIVATE JADE AND GOLD CLIAMS FOR SALE
As usual we have access to many gold claims both here in BC and the Yukon. Several very good claims some starting as low as $25,000.00 / claim.
We have 5 privately held Jade claims left. Amazing opportunities for those who are motivated to acquire a stake or expand their positions in BC’s Jade mining sector. It is very rare that such claims come available. Again these are private and discretion is a must.
Contact us today for more details. Serious inquirers only please.

BC Mining News From The Province of British Columbia…
New Afton brings prosperity to Kamloops
KAMLOOPS – Mining has come back to British Columbia in a big way as the New Afton Mine celebrates its grand opening. The mine is the second new mine to open in as many years in the province.
More than 400 people are currently employed at the New Afton Mine. From the start of mine development, New Gold has actively recruited people from the local Kamloops area; 75 percent of the New Afton workforce has been hired locally, including more than 100 BC Aboriginal Mine Training Association candidates.
In 2010 government signed an Economic and Community Development Agreement with the Secwepemc Nation, which will share mineral-tax revenue generated by the mine. The agreement, one of the first in Canada, places a strong focus on community development to help First Nations achieve their social and economic goals.
New Gold is also the winner of the 2011 Mining and Sustainability Award. This award, which recognizes their work on the New Afton project, is a joint initiative of the Mining Association of British Columbia and the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Natural Gas, and recognizes companies, communities, First Nations, non-governmental organizations, government agencies and individuals committed to advancing and promoting sustainable development in the B.C. mining sector. New Gold is being honoured for their ongoing commitment to health and safety, community engagement, the environment, advance reclamation and conservation during the course of the project.
Premier Christy Clark –
“Our government made a commitment as part of the BC Jobs Plan to open or expand 17 mines by 2015 and today’s announcement is proof that our plan is working and we are delivering. The mining sector is truly enjoying a renaissance in our province and significantly contributes revenues to the government which allows us to invest in our roads, highways, schools and hospitals.
“I would like to congratulate New Gold on the New Afton development and their investment in Kamloops and our province. Today is a good day for British Columbia.”
Minister of Energy, Mines and Natural Gas and Minister Responsible for Housing Rich Coleman –
“Congratulations to New Gold and its employees on the opening of the New Afton Mine and on winning the 2011 Mining and Sustainability Award. This is an exciting time to be a part of the mining industry in B.C. New Afton is the latest example of how our government is working with industry to increase investment and expand job creation to build a better quality of life for future generations while making sure sustainable practices are encouraged and rewarded.”
Minister of Environment Terry Lake –
“New Afton Mine is an award-winning example of sustainable and responsible mining practices giving British Columbians further proof that economic growth doesn’t have to happen at the expense of our environment. This ensures long-term benefits for all British Columbians as we continue to build a vital economic future we can all share.”
Karina Brino, president and CEO, Mining Association of BC –
“We would like to congratulate New Gold on the opening of the second mine in as many years here in British Columbia. The Mining Association of BC is honoured to recognize the contribution made here in sustainable mining and towards a positive future in the mining industry.”
Why It Matters:
Mining contributes hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue that helps pay for government services like health care and education. (More than $400 million estimated for 2011.)
In 2011, more than 29,000 people were employed in the minerals economy in over 50 B.C. communities.
·The opening of New Afton marks the second new major metals mine to open in the province since 1998.
·New Afton is an underground gold, copper and silver mine, developed by New Gold at a cost of $760 million and is expected to yield an average of 85,000 ounces of gold and 75 million pounds of copper annually over its 12-year mine life.
·Under the BC Jobs Plan, two new mines have begun production, one is under construction, and three more have received permits with construction expected to start this year. Five mine expansions have been permitted.
