I'll try again. Maybe this time I can end in green. Just a few share tracking position now. I see management is selling alledged non-core assets, planning to be debt-free in a few years. That's a positive, I guess.

Under the Exploration Earn-In, Barrick must commit $15 million in work expenditures over a four-year period to earn a 70% interest on Kan, subject to certain annual work expenditure thresholds, including a guaranteed expenditure threshold of $6 million in the first two years.

Qualified Person

The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed, prepared and approved by Mr. Mathieu Savard, P.Geo. Vice President Exploration Québec, who is a "Qualified Person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

About the Kan Property

The Kan Property is located in the Nunavik Territory in northern Québec. The property is a large gold and base-metal exploration project covering a surface area of over 30,000 hectares in the Labrador Trough, 85 kilometres southwest of Kuujjuaq. A silicate-carbonate iron formation of regional extent represents a significant auriferous unit on the property sharing similarities with the world-class Homestake gold deposit. Historical work conducted in the 1990's led to the discovery of numerous gold showings within the iron formation, with drill results returning 5.1 g/t Au over 6 metres (Ferricrete Showing) and 9.46 g/t Au over 2 metres (Kan Showing). Work carried out by Rio Silver Inc. in 2011-2012 yielded 3.12 g/t Au over 13.9 metres in channels and 1.2 g/t Au over 10.4 metres in drilling on the Pump Pad Ridge showing. Exploration work performed in 2014-2016 by Virginia Mines (subsequently Osisko Exploration James Bay) led to the discovery of additional gold mineralization associated with the silicate-carbonate iron formation on the Kan property. Best results from this work include values of: 8.1 g/t Au over 7 metres (Pump Pad Ridge showing); 10.7 g/t Au over 5 metres (Winchester showing); and 8.6 g/t Au over 3.2 metres (KTR showing) obtained from channels; and values of 2.13 g/t Au over 8 metres and 4.62 g/t over 8 metres obtained from drilling (Winchester-Pump-Pad Ridge).

Successful Debt Reduction Efforts To Stand Barrick In Good Stead Amid Subdued Gold Pricing Environment

1:04 PM ET 3/21/17 | TREFIS
Barrick Gold hasdelivered on its debtreduction targets for 2016, following on from another successful year of debt reduction in 2015. The company managed to lower its net debt by roughly$2 billion over the course of 2016, as promised by the management last year, following on from around $3 billion worth of debt reduction in 2015.



Given thedecline in gold prices from 2013 to 2015, the company management made debt reduction a priority,besides endeavoring to lower operating costs.Using the proceeds of a number of non-core asset sales and cash flows from operations, the company managed to accomplish the aforementioned debt reduction objectives. In addition to lowering debt, the sale of high-cost non-core mines helped lower Barrick’s average operating costs as well. Through a combination of asset sales and operational improvements, Barrick has managed to considerably lower its all-in sustaining costs (AISC) metric, which represents the overall costs required to sustain ongoing mining operations.



The success of Barrick debt and cost reduction efforts has prompted us to revise the company’s price estimate to $18.29. Lower debt levels and an improved AISC metric will certainly stand the company in good stead, given thatgold pricesare likely to average lower this year, as compared to last year. Strengthening economic conditions in the U.S. and the likelihood of more interest rate hikes by the Fed later this year are likely to weigh ongold prices. Thus, Barrick Gold has made the right moves to counteract the negative impact of lower gold prices.

Stephen Walker of RBC CapitalupgradedBarrick Gold Corp (USA) (NYSE: ABX) to Outperform from Sector Perform as he expects shares to benefit from strong FCF generation in 2017 and 2018, enabling the company to pay down its debt and advance organic growth projects. Walker sees gold production of 5.7 Moz at AISC of $722/oz in 2017 (prev. 5.2 Moz at $754/oz), then the expected step down to 5.1 Moz at AISC of $733/oz in 2018 and 4.6M oz longer term. Meanwhile, Barrick Goldexpects to produce at least 4.5 Moz/year through 2021 and targets sub-$700/oz AISC by 2020, versus RBC's conservative estimate of about $750/oz. "With a production decline discounted into the share price, we believe Barrick can more effectively create shareholder value with production below 5Moz," Walker wrote in a note. Given near-term improvement in production, the analyst projects sufficient operating cash flow at $1,100/oz gold for Barrick to fund its planned capital spending program and reduce their debt by $2.9 billion, to the $5 billion target by YE2018. Further, a stronger balance sheet reduces need for non-core asset sales. In fact, the market anticipates Barrick focus on internal development projects that meet its return hurdles, rather than seek external M&A opportunities. At last check, shares of Barrick Gold were up 0.79 percent to $19.17. The analyst raised his price target to $23 from $19.

"Recycling Today” Details Itronics’ Successes, Future Plans

Itronics Inc. (OTC:ITRO) and its President John Whitney have always envisioned a clean, waste-free planet. Over the years, they’ve translated that vision into innovative, practical and money-making applications.

Whitney is best known for inventing a method for separating silver and other precious metals from spent photographic liquid. Itronics uses the demetallized fluid to make micronutrient-rich fertilizers at its Reno, Nevada, plant, while the metals are turned into bullion and sold to refineries. Additionally, the glass slag produced in Itronics’ refining process can be used to manufacture commercial products, such as decorative tile.

Itronics is not standing still. Within the last four years, the Company has developed a way to reclaim precious metals—including gold, silver and palladium—as well as copper and tin—from discarded computer circuit boards. It has simply added the e-scrap as infeed material for its refinery process.

In that process, silver is not only recovered from photographic waste, but its chemical makeup allows it to soak up metals from circuit boards during furnace refining. The metals then become ingredients in the Company’s bullion.

Because of this e-scrap breakthrough, Itronics is buying more furnaces to ramp up bullion production and will eventually bring in larger furnaces. Whitney has even modified a furnace so that it burns latent heat energy from carbon in circuit boards, reducing outside energy needed to power the furnace by more than 50 percent.

For that furnace innovation, Whitney and Itronics won an award from NV Energy, a Nevada public power company.
