Sassy Drilling Buids Out Westmore Discovery With Widest Intercept To Date

Sassy Resources Corp. (CSE:SASY)

Westmore advanced last year from a little-known Eskay Camp prospect with no previous systematic exploration to an intriguing early-stage drilling discovery .”

— Mark Scott

400 – 1681 Chestnut Street
V6J 4M6

Sassy Resources Corporation (“Sassy” or the “Company”) (CSE: SASY) (FSE: 4E7) (OTCQB: SSYRF) is pleased to announce that final results from first-ever shallow drilling comprising 1,662 meters in six holes at the Westmore target in Northwest B.C.’s Eskay Camp confirm the discovery of a structurally controlled gold-silver-rich system with a large surface footprint, open laterally and to depth. Notably, preliminary analysis has now revealed that the Westmore intrusive (see March 17, 2021 news release) is Early Jurassic in age, aligning this grassroots discovery on the geological timeline with other significant, Jurassic-aged gold deposits in the prolific Golden Triangle.

Mr. Mark Scott, Sassy President and CEO, commented: “Westmore advanced last year from a little-known Eskay Camp prospect with no previous systematic exploration to an intriguing early-stage drilling discovery after just several months of work, an unusual pace of development. Results to date are extremely encouraging and will help immensely in guiding our follow-up drill program this summer. We have drill tested just a fraction of the area of interest at Westmore, and not even our thickest vein identified at surface, given time limitations last fall. However, we have collected over 2,000 valuable data points, information that positions our team to now hone in on the source of the extensive high-grade mineralization sampled at surface.

“In addition, we have contracted Geotech Airborne Geophysical Surveys to carry out the first high resolution/deep penetrating VTEM survey at Westmore as soon as weather conditions allow. This state-of-the-art survey will be carried out across the entire 146 sq. km Foremore Property where there are also multiple VMS-style corridors (More Creek plus Hanging Valley) with potential for massive sulphide accumulations from near-surface to depths exceeding 300 meters.”

Latest Westmore Drill Hole Highlights:
• Drill holes WM20-003 and WM20-005 intersected multiple quartz stockwork zones including the widest mineralized interval of this initial program, 13.95 meters grading 0.68 g/t Au and 5.53 g/t Ag starting just 16.15 meters downhole (3.60 g/t Au and 22.7 g/t Ag over 1 meter near the bottom of this zone) in drill hole WM20-005;
• WM20-003 and WM20-005 confirm a >100-meter extension along strike of quartz vein hosted gold-silver mineralization sampled on surface and intersected in previously released drill holes WM20-001 and WM20-002 (including 14.20 g/t Au and 22.6 g/t Ag over 0.90 meters in WM20-002);
• WM20-005 was terminated in a zone of quartz stockwork that hosts an interval of very anomalous gold-silver mineralization from 291.90 meters to 301.50 meters, demonstrating the potential for high-grade gold-silver mineralization at depth within the Westmore system.

Mr. Ian Fraser, Sassy VP-Exploration, commented: “Ongoing interpretation of results received to date has defined a very strong Pb-Te and Bi alteration halo/signature associated with the gold-silver mineralization at Westmore. What is highly encouraging is a repeat of this alteration signature at significant drill hole depths in WM20-002 (several vein swarms below 210 meters downhole) and WM20-005 (below 220 meters downhole), indicating strong potential to intersect high-grade gold and silver mineralization along strike at these depths and very possibly below these drill hole depths.

“Galena (Pb) has been recognized to be directly associated with high-grade gold and silver intercepts on surface and in drill holes, and galena is a very significant component within these deep alteration halos. Like galena, higher levels of tellurium correspond to higher gold and silver intercepts and tellurium is significantly present within these deep alteration halos,” Mr. Fraser concluded.

WM20-004 was the only drill hole designed to test a vein, initially discovered in 2019, hosted within the mafic volcanic unit that sits atop the Westmore intrusive. The drill hole intersected the targeted vein approximately 40 meters below surface but failed to replicate the results as reported by 2020 follow-up surface sampling (values of 0.046 to 101 g/t Au and up to 1,510 g/t Ag over a 100-meter strike length). Additional drilling is required to outline the size, shape and dimensions of the high-grade zones or shoots within this vein.
WM20-006, completed from the same platform as WM20-004 but drilled to the southeast, intersected three zones of quartz veining/quartz stockwork within the mafic volcanic unit that were anomalous in gold-silver, and zones of quartz stockwork within the Westmore intrusive anomalous in Au, Ag, Pb, Te and Bi, suggesting potential for higher grade gold-silver within these zones.

5 Questions Accountant Konstantin Lichtenwald Wants You To Answer Before Investing

First-time investors ‘bull-ied’ into the stock market like never before

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, March 31, 2021 / — These beginners dumped a considerable amount of time and money while stuck at home during the pandemic.The stimulus package deposited extra cash in pockets with little to spend it on. Others were just bored, with nothing to do and extra time to kill.The result was a perfect storm. Charles Schwab, an industry leader, reported that new accounts are completing more total trades than any other.And, many more are still eager to jump in.

Before beginning, accountant Konstantin Lichtenwald, based in Vancouver, encourages any first-time investor to ask themselves these five questions.

What type of investor are you?
It sounds like an existential crisis, but it all starts with self-reflection.

Who are you?
You may want to dive right in. You’re hands-on and want to manage every step of the process. Or, researching stocks and prices may feel like a chore. It’s okay to be less active in process.

This will help determine the entire approach.

Luckily, you can still invest no matter how you answer. All that changes is the “how.”

How do you want to allocate resources?
Regardless of your appetite, there’s a flavor for you.

Choosing stocks and funds on your own gives freedom and control over every aspect. Popular online brokerage apps, like Robinhood, have seen spikes from novices after the government released stimulus checks.

If DIY is a little too much, robo-advisors may be an ideal choice. Supported by most major firms, this service promotes expert help for a low-cost fee.

Consulting with a broker is always a good place to start. Konstantin Lichtenwald and other professionals offer assistance and direction where needed.

Can a professional, like Konstantin Lichtenwald, really help?
Simply put, yes.

You have the vision. They provide the game plan.

Accountants and brokers have the experience to create a personalized strategy that works for you. Konstantin Lichtenwald and other CPAs balance short-term interests with long-term goals.

How much should I invest?
Your goals are set.

Now, you need to set a budget.

Individual stock prices vary greatly, ranging from a few dollars to thousands. Selecting the right one can be tricky. As a general rule, these should be a small portion of your allocation.

Choose an exchange-traded fund (ETF) if your budget is limited. Like stocks, these trade for share prices but at fraction of the cost of traditional mutual funds.

Factor in any fees or service charges linked to whatever account you’ve created.

What should I invest in?
It’s time to build your portfolio.

Your goals drive your decisions.

If you’re padding a retirement nest egg, consider an individual retirement account (IRA). These offer tax breaks on your savings.

Konstantin Lichtenwald advises his clients to diversify and reduce risk. Don’t overextend yourself and never invest in a business you don’t understand.

Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS on Investing in the Best

LAWRENCE, KS, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 / — Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS is an example of someone who is investing in many eco-friendly things in order to make a difference in this world. Investing in Gamestop, electric vehicles, and green energy is one way to accomplish this purpose, and that is what Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS has done.

In order to invest in Gamestop, one should go to a stockbroker or bank to get started and get the details ironed out. Any financial institution that provides people with brokerage services will do for anyone who wants to make this kind of investment, as Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS did and continues to do. Gaming stocks are not necessarily related to anything having to do with making the world healthier and greener, but it is a great way to make money for anyone who does invests in them properly. With this money, people who invest in Gamestop successfully will be able to go on and spend the money they acquire here on more noble purposes, such as green energy and electric vehicles, which do have a direct positive impact on the environment. What Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS has done has shown that this is possible for anyone who is interested in this sort of endeavor.

Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS has also made a name for himself by investing in green energy and electric vehicles. Some people may be somewhat confused as to what exactly green energy is. Some people may think that the terms "green energy" and "renewable energy" are interchangeable with one another, but the truth is that there is a distinction between them. Green energy includes many different types of power, including the power that is created by wind, solar, low-impact hydroelectric, biogas, geothermal, and certain other eligible biomass sources. These are renewable energy sources that play a role in the power grid and will give you the same type of energy as will any conventional energy source. Renewable energy includes the same sources as does green energy, but it is a broader category and also includes products and technologies that can have a major impact on the environment. Whatever energy you use will be a mixture of conventional, green, and renewable energy because all of the energy is mixed together in the power grid, and it is not possible to separate out types of energy so that you are only using one to power your home or devices.

Though it is up for debate whether or not electric cars are actually greener than those powered by fossil fuels, they are more efficient and do not pollute the air with CO2 while being driven (electric cars release energy electrochemically, without burning any fuel). As such, it makes sense that individuals like Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS would see these as a worthy investment that could also help to make the earth greener and healthier.

Australia’s Most Comprehensive Medicinal Cannabis Report: H1 2021

Intense medicinal cannabis product competition keeps downward pressure on prices as patient numbers grow by a factor of 15x over the past 2 years

SYDNEY, NSW, AUSTRALIA, March 31, 2021 / — FreshLeaf Analytics is excited to once again release Australia’s most comprehensive medicinal cannabis Patient, Product and Pricing Analysis.

The last 6 months were defined by intense medicinal cannabis product competition, keeping a downward pressure on prices – which is good news for patients.

This report will be the sixth major publication from FreshLeaf, which is the leading source of information, data and analysis on the sector.

– Medicinal cannabis revenue expected to exceed expectations in 2021, hitting A$200m+
– Patient numbers have grown by a factor of 15x over the past two years
– Significant increase in “Authorised Prescribers” after long period of stagnation
– Intense product competition continues as new products flood the market, keeping downward pressure on price
– Average daily dose and average monthly spend stabilise
– Slow-down in delivery format innovation with only 1 new format introduced in last 6 months
– Sizeable patient cohort expected to migrate to the pharmacy channel once low-dose CBD products become available over the counter in pharmacies
– 2021 will bring evolution in the regulatory landscape, a greater emphasis on product quality, growing investment in R&D, and further industry consolidation

Cassandra Hunt, Managing Director of FreshLeaf commented: “The Australian medicinal cannabis market continues its strong growth trajectory with revenue expected to more than double in 2021 from around $100m last year. There’s good news for patients too, with the price of medicine continuing to fall.”

Tim Drury, CEO of Southern Cannabis Holdings: “While we’re excited by the continued growth in the industry, the fact that the illegal market is still more than 10 times larger than the legal market means that we still have a long way to go before we can consider that Australia has the right ecosystem for helping patients”.

The report has also been welcomed by the sector, with key players commenting:

Dr Mark Hardy, Addiction Specialist and CA Clinics Medical Director commented: “When you consider that there were only about 3,000 active patients just two years ago, and that FreshLeaf projects that active patient numbers may climb to 75,000 by the end of 2021, clearly more people have been able to gain access to legal medicinal cannabis. It is of the utmost importance that patients have treatment options, and these figures suggest that cannabinoid medicine is increasingly being accepted as a viable option by the mainstream.”

Clare Barker, GM of Entoura said: "The proliferation of medicinal cannabis products to a total of 190 now available for Australian physicians to prescribe seems like a positive for patient choice on the surface, but it also makes it harder for doctors to differentiate between them. This means that product and delivery format innovation is more important than ever. We brought the only new format in the last 6 months to market in the form of chewable tablets, which are proving to be convenient for active patients and may be more palatable for those who dislike the taste of oils or for children”.

And Peter Crock, MCIA Chairman added: "The report shows that the industry is maturing and local product is coming on stream. This will improve with regulatory reforms currently being worked through. The increase in patients also demonstrates the valuable role for medicinal cannabis and reinforces how important it is that the evidence base catches up, and we can bring products through the registration pathway”.

Australian, Mexico, US and other mining country patents have already been issued. Test mining at the Penoles Madero Mine confirmed the technology.

In essence, the Gryba invention coverts mining an orebody from a series of traditional stopes and pillars to a set of SMART spreadsheets. Zero base cost mining and milling a single 1,000 ton SMART cell, then the geological 3D block modelling program quickly calculates the NPV for the life of the mine. Enter new exploration, cost or production data, rerun the model, update management daily or monthly.

History: Canadian Mining Engineer Charles M. Gryba P.Eng. patented the DPM mining method in 1990. The current Canadian Patent explains how to install a continuous, steel reinforced concrete roof on top of concrete posts. The concrete roof ties together 10 DPM innovations developed over the past 30 years thus creating a modern SMART spreadsheet mining method.

The simplest way to explain SMART is to visualize an orebody as a multilevel underground car parkade. The volume of ore between any 4 posts is a cell in a SMART spreadsheet, linking the spreadsheets together mines the entire orebody.

The original idea for SMART started with a 1983 Kidd Creek mine tour observation that the bottom of 30m wide, cemented rock filled (CRF) blasthole stope only arched 1 meter when mined out from below. Gryba with 50,000 hours of mine engineering, budgeting, operating and Noranda Research Centre experience was intrigued. Gryba had developed a strong belief that the industry must invent new mining methods to solve traditional mining problems.

The North American gold standard, “bulk mining method” since 1980 is VCR – blasthole stoping patented in the early 1970’s by CIL with Inco’s help. Block caving is 100 years old. Other traditional methods like cut and fill, room and pillar or shrinkage stoping, were invented by the Romans 2,000 years ago. None of the current mining methods are a good platform for mining innovation. NA mine development and stoping productivity has dropped 3% per year for the past 15 years – CEMI data.

Mining methods in 2021 are still plagued with high dilution, ongoing safety issues from rock falls, declining productivity and increasing costs. Kriged ore grade calculations, combined with complex planning and scheduling software, all add to the opaque nature of underground mining. SMART simplifies mining to a set of linked spreadsheets mined from the top down in 6m lifts, less development work plus quicker production reduces mining risks. As with any invention a few new terms are required.

Image 1 shows a top cut (drift and fill mining), cell size, CRF, and double posting. The red and white colored drifts install the red precast concrete posts and pours the top concrete roof of the parkade. For hard ore, conventional mining equipment is used to excavate 15m wide x any length panels under the concrete roof. Roadheaders are used to mine soft ore. Filled primary panels act as temporary pillars allowing secondary panels to be mined. This gives 100% ore recovery in 1 pass of mining with individual SMART cells having 0% backfill plus close to 0% wall rock dilution.

Image 2 shows an underground car parkade with ramp access. The 1st lift post holes were drilled on a 7.5m x 7.5m grid to match the corners of the SMART cells as per the 3D geological block model. Once a 15m wide panel of ore is mined, a backfill cycle installs a new grid of posts, a concrete floor then CRF. Compression pads bolted to the bottom flange of all red posts allows the CRF and concrete roof to move when ore is mined from below. The critical problem was how to design the overall parkade to support 800 tons of the CRF per SMART cell vs the weight of 4 cars. The load on any red post could be as high as 3200t when it is the common corner post of 4 cells.

The post loading question was solved by Golder FLAC 3D computer mining an 8 cell x 8 cell x 5 lift orebody, round by round, using 10 types or strengths of backfill. A stiff, civil designed parkade failed at the post roof connection. Weak CRF or paste fill caused the roof to sag to far thus overloading the posts. Success – equip red posts with compression pads and use jammed 500Mpa CRF. Post loading reduces from 250tons to 150 tons as you mine down 3 lifts using standard 6% cement CRF. Heaviest post loading was always on the 1st SMART lift and post loads steady state by the 3rd lift.

A $5 million dollar test program was completed at the Penoles Madero Mine in Mexico to mine prove the SMART technology engineering design. Test mining a 15m wide panel was successful. Image 3 visually shows that the roof and posts stayed intact.

Test mining proved the overall SMART spreadsheet, as each cell is the same. SMART enhances just about every aspect of underground planning, economics, mining research and safety. The standardized SMART cell technology is directly transferable from mine to mine and is scalable from 1,000 to 15,000tpd @ 0% dilution. Concrete roofs monitored via load cells creates a safe work environment and allows modern innovations such as mechanical or remote mining, robotics etc. to be safely implemented.

Rather than keeping the SMART technology confidential, 10 EIN press releases will be issued to explain SMART to both the mining and financial markets. Stakeholders include exploration and mine geologists, production miners, retail investors, bankers, fund managers, mining analysts, mine operators, company directors, mine ministers and politicians. To quantify some of the 40+ SMART financial and technical improvements identified to date, 4 well known NA mines will be redesigned using the SMART platform.

COVID-19 Has Families Talking About Their Wishes for Their Estate

Now is the time for families to sit down and share their wishes for their estates once they have passed on.

We help executors navigate the complex and stressful process of settling the estate of a loved one, regardless of circumstance.”

— Trustate

UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 / — In the last 12 months, more and more families have made time to clean closets, covert old video tapes to digital format and organize “their papers.”

“We have seen families disagree and experience frustration around what they believe their loved one wanted for their estate and having everything in order ahead of time, allows families to grieve without the stress of not having clear direction,” said Trustate Co-founder & COO Tara Faquir. “The key is to be prepared and have systems in place to make the process more efficient.”

Here are three things you can do to help your family avoid frustrations:
1. Call a meeting – Individuals can avoid frustration by speaking up and sharing their wishes and details outlined in their Will, particularly with beneficiaries and those making health decisions on their behalf. It is helpful for your beneficiaries to hear from you directly as you structure your estate, and if it is a more complicated estate, then having your lawyer participate is a good idea.
2. Communicate clearly – Let your friends and family know ahead of time how you want your estate structured. If you have made decisions about how to treat your family and friends, letting them while you are still with them, provides an opportunity for them to process the information. Note that this could open the door for them to try to convince you to make changes, resulting in an uncomfortable situation or worse, lasting family feuds. That is why communicating clearly is key to the family understanding your wishes.
3. Leave a note, letter, or a video – If you are not able to speak directly with your beneficiaries, family members and friends, then leaving a letter or video intended for the beneficiaries and family members to explain why you designed the estate plan a certain way is very helpful. The topic of your passing can be unpleasant for everyone and some family members would prefer to avoid it all together, but it is easier to accept when they read or see you sharing your wishes. At Trustate we strongly urge you to consult with an attorney before preparing something like that, as such writings, videos, and voice recordings are admissible as evidence (including any rough drafts, or deleted outtakes).

“If you believe your estate plan can cause drama among family members, we recommend you consult with an experienced estate attorney to coordinate an ‘all hands-on deck’ family meeting, with witnesses and that attorney present, to discuss your estate plan and set expectations. This way, everyone could hear the same information, at the same time, in front of objective observers. By choosing to share your estate plan now, you can get those discussions out of the way and keep everyone on the same page, whether they like it or not,” said Leah Del Percio, Founder and CEO of Trustate

Communicating ahead of time can bring relief and clarity to a family as they work through a very emotional process after a loved one has passed. Trustate is a unique estate administration concierges service that helps families deal with a loved one’s estate once they have passed on and allows the family to grief without the stress of the day-to-day administrative tasks of closing an estate. Trustate is where human empathy and technology meet. They are not a traditional technology firm, as their technology enables their estate concierges to complete estate-focused tasks less expensively if they were done manually.

Both Leah Del Percio and Tara Faquir are available for interviews on the topic of general estate supports and full estate administration services, once a loved one has passed.
