Going forward, inflation is expected to play a major role in deciding the future of gold. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), USD 12 Trillion has been pumped into global financial markets as governments and central banks worldwide have tried to stabilize the economy that was devastated by the pandemic. Investors are now speculating that the fallout will be seen in higher inflation, especially when the economic activity picks up in the second half of the year. When prices rise and the value of the dollar falls, gold is often seen as a hedge against inflation.
Clarity Gold Corp. (CSE: CLAR) (OTC: CLGCF) just announced breaking news regarding, "results from the deepest hole to date on the Destiny project, one of 27 holes of the recently completed 10,826 m diamond drilling program at the Destiny Project in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt.
The results in this press release are from one hole completed on the central portion of the DAC Zone that was designed to confirm the mineralized structure at depth. The results of this drilling will play an important role in the continued exploration of the Destiny Project.
"The company is thrilled to have intersected the deepest gold mineralization to date on our flagship project," stated CEO, James Rogers. "This hole was designed to test the mineralized structure at depths not previously drilled and has identified elevated gold mineralization at a drill depth of nearly 900 meters, which is more than three times the average historic drilling depth of the Destiny Project. This undoubtedly opens up great additional exploration opportunities for the project in a gold camp in which the deepest mines are currently operating at depths up to 2,300 m."…
To date, the Company has released 8 holes comprising approximately 3597 m of 10,826 m from 27 recently completed holes. The analytical results are The Company looks forward to updating further as additional results are received and as we continue to interpret these results as we evaluate bulk tonnage and high-grade models for the Destiny Project.
With the exception of DES21-158, which was abandoned and restarted as DES21-159, all drilling on the project, so far in 2021, has intercepted anomalous gold and confirmed the presence of the quartz carbonate altered and mineralized shear zone. Gold occurs as free gold and in association with pyrite and chalcopyrite as observed in thin section and in drill core.
The drillholes in this program concentrated on infilling historic drilling in the DAC and GAP Zones, and confirmation of historic drilling which identified mineralization in these areas…
Quality Control and Reporting Protocols - Drill core is transported to a facility in Val d'Or where it is logged, photographed, and sampled. Once logging is complete, samples of half core are sawed, prepared and securely shipped to Bureau Veritas Laboratories in Timmins for processing and analysis, an independent, ISO 17025 certified facility. Samples were crushed to 70% passing 2mm and a 250g subsample was pulverized to 85% passing 75μm. The subsample was analyzed by a combination of fire assay with atomic absorption finish for gold and aqua regia digestion with an ICP-ES finish for a suite of 33 elements. Samples containing visible gold or which returned over 2.0 g/t Au were analyzed by metallic screen fire assay. The Company has established a QA/QC program consisting of inserting quality control (QC) samples at regular intervals in the sample stream, including blanks, duplicates, and reference materials…

Geo., a member of the advisory board and a consultant of the Company, is the Qualified Person ("QP") under NI 43-101 for the technical information in this news release and has verified the data disclosed for the Destiny Project and approves the technical contents contained in this news release."

Yamana Gold Inc. (NYSE: AUY) reported earlier this week positive initial drill results at its Wasamac project in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue Region of Quebec, Canada, confirming the presence of the Wasa Shear zone to the west of the main Wasamac zone and expanding the down-dip continuity of the Wasa Shear in a secondary zone known as Wildcat. These initial results further align with the objective to sustain 200,000 ounces per year of production at Wasamac and achieve a strategic mine life of more than 15 years, which, in turn, aligns with the potential to increase the Company's average annual production in Quebec to approximately 500,000 ounces by 2028 through 2041. Consistent with the optimization strategy announced with the positive development decision on Wasamac on July 19, 2021, the Company is advancing an exploration program that focuses on expanding the current mineral resource envelopes to depths below the established mineral resource and testing for mineralization in poorly explored gaps between mineralized zones. In addition, the exploration program will target the broader Wasamac property, including the adjacent Francoeur, Arntfield and Lac Fortune gold deposits ("the Francoeur properties"), and include an infill program to better delineate mining areas expected to be developed in the first three years of production.
