In the news

The month of August was a busy time for Lavras Gold. To kick the month off, LGC announced that its results from its expansion drilling plans at the Zeca Souza Discovery at the Lavras Do Sul Project also referred to as (“LDS Project”) have proven to be a big success with bonanza gold grade being obtained. Assay results from LDS includes; 110.6 g/t gold over 1 metre at depth of27 metres from hole 23BT004 along with 43.59 g/t gold from 31 metres, 1.00 metre grading 52.30 g/t gold from 31.00 metres,1.00 metre grading 110.50 g/t gold from 33.00 metres to name a few.

Micheal Durose the CEO and President of Lavras Gold stated, “We are very pleased with these follow-up drill results from Zeca Souza, where we are seeing more bonanza gold grade near the surface of this recent discovery and at depth in various parts of the target,”. Mr. Durose further stated “The exceptional gold grades associated with visible gold in silicified stockwork style veinlets, together with long intervals of elevated gold values relatively close to surface, suggest a robust gold system at Zeca Souza”. To date, Lavras Gold has completed 5,291 metres of drilling with a total of 21 drill holes at the site.

At the end of August, Lavras Gold announced new assay results from the new Fazenda do Posto discovery, and uncovered continuous mineralization of 340 metres grading 1.09 g/t gold from 117 metres. The drill hole which these results stim from (23FP002) was collared roughly 150 metres west from the Butiá Gold Deposit which currently has an NI 43-101 gold resource estimate of roughly 500,000 ounces.

“It is remarkable that we have discovered a long, continuous bulk-tonnage disseminated style of gold mineralization in this intrusive-hosted gold system only 150 metres from the western edge of the Butiá Gold Deposit.” stated the CEO Mr.Durose. The CEO further commented “This is a blind gold discovery associated with an interpreted down-dropped block of rock across a northeast trending fault. The discovery was made by good old-fashioned field geology with boots on the ground”.

This week Lavras Gold announced that it is raising capital through a private placement offering which if filled completely would result in an additional $10.8 million in capital for the company. The financing is being priced at $1.35 per share and does not include any warrants which does not add any further dilution to its share structure.
