“Joe liked the project so much, he became Chairman!”
While the shares have doubled in value from where Institutional Gold Research added it to the Watch List, we feel the potential has risen and the risk decreased, given recent events. We highly recommend investors closely monitor the news which lies around the corner as Winston is off the sideline and hard at work.
Joe Carrabba’s interest in Winston Gold is reminiscent of former New England Patriot owner Victor Kiam who catchphrased. “I liked the shaver so much, I bought the company.”
While Carrabba, a widely known and highly respected mining executive whose background includes senior positions at Newmont Mining (NEM), Rio Tinto (RIO) and Cleveland Cliffs didn’t buy the whole company, he did acquire enough shares to make him one of its largest shareholders.
He also recently bolstered his involvement (August/2019) from being a ‘just a shareholder’ to the Chairman of Winston. When appointed, he stated, “I believe in the potential of the high-grade Winston gold project…my opinion has not changed…in fact, I am now even more excited about the future of this project.“
Would you agree when a mining expert coming from Rio Tinto (market cap $90 billion), Newmont Mining ($32 billion) and Cleveland Cliffs ($2.2 billion) takes a stake and publicly announces his involvement for all to see in a tiny Junior miner with a market of near $10 million, that you should pay attention. We do.
We’ll add to that if you have never invested in a Junior Miner before – an industry which has suffered near 5-years of neglect, this might be a great place space to start. While all Junior Miners are inherently risky, Winston has aspects which set it apart from the crowd. It wouldn’t be reckless to invest in a technology start-up where Bill Gates took a stake, or and Oil & Gas start-up where T. Boone Pickens (RIP) took a stake or a food start-up where Martha Stewart took a stake. We feel the analogy plays well with Carrabba’s stake in Winston.
So while there can be no assurances with any Junior miner, we’ll say that Winston Gold is off to a fantastic start. Below is a letter to Shareholders from Mr Carrabba.
Winston Gold Corp. A Letter To The Shareholders
I am honored to have been elected as the Executive Chairman of Winston Gold on July 24, 2019.
I look forward to working with a very experienced Board of Directors and management team to start test-mining and bulk-sampling the gold veins within the Winston Gold leases.
First, thanks to all of our shareholders who have been very patient as we raised the funds that will go towards the underground development of the Parallel and Block 93 gold veins that are associated with the historical Custer mine.
A number of factors have conspired to increase the price of gold from US$1,200 in November 2017, when I joined Winston Gold as a strategic advisor, to today’s price of approximately US$1,500. Given the current political upheaval around the world and a low-interest rate environment we do not foresee gold prices reversing course in the short term.
Winston Gold is one of the very few junior gold companies that is fully permitted and in the underground development phase of operations. We expect test-mining to begin in the first quarter of 2020.
We have just received all the financing required to purchase an underground drill, scoop tram and truck. In addition, we have hired a very experienced local underground mining team to complete the access tunnel and begin underground development of the mine.
Winston has the choice of several very attractive custom mills near our site that can process mineralized material once test-mining has started. As a result, we can save time and money by not having to build our own mill. We are now in the final stages of negotiations to lease a mill.
While we do not have a NI-43-101 compliant resource estimate on the property, we are confident with the assay results we have obtained from the numerous historic and current drill holes. Winston’s drill results firmly support our geologic model and additional drill hole data are being catalogued into the database.
Looking ahead, the parallel and Block 93 veins are still open for expansion, both along strike and to depth. We have just initiated another five-hole drill program to extend these veins and begin our investigation into the Custer vein.
We are very optimistic about our future as we have now commenced development work to start test-mining and bulk sampling the parallel and block 93 gold veins.
I look forward to sharing our progress with all the shareholders on a quarterly basis.
Thanks again for your support.
