Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GMXS) Possesses High Grade Gold Projects in Underexplored and Underdeveloped Colombian Districts

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

Gemini Explorations has secured some exciting acquisitions in the largely underdeveloped mineral reserve wealth of Colombia, drawing on nearly two decades of connections within the industry in order to turn GMXS into the next big name among juniors in South American gold production.

The superb geological potential of the company’s two current projects, the La Planada and La Tapada gold properties, shows how intelligent the company’s management is, snapping up such richly mineralized acreage in key underdeveloped gold districts. GMXS even formed a Colombian subsidiary, Minera Gemini SA, back in May of this year to streamline/facilitate operations and act as a holding unit for the company’s Colombian mining concessions and interests.

Gemini is sitting on two key projects in districts/geology with massive future production capacity, one of which, the 100%-owned La Planada Gold Project, is a potential 3.15M ounce monster (valued around $4B at today’s prices) in the heart of the Los Andes Sotomayor Gold Belt. La Planada is a perfect example of underdeveloped potential, with ideal open rock exposure over the majority of the property that lends the site to open pitting quite readily. The abundant high grade gold veins at the site are also just under 50 miles outside the Province’s capital city of Pasto. With numerous workings at various levels throughout the site and such open exposure, logistics should be relatively simple to implement. Phase I sampling results are positive with the 3 principal vein samples (five sets of veinlets cross cut vein zones here, 1.3 to 6.5 feet in width) ranged up to 117.9g/tonne Au, with an average of 15.1 g/tonne (mixed vein/wall rock samples as high as 10.7g/tonne Au, with an average of 3.06 g/tonne and host rock samples showing 0.88 g/tonne on average).

Needless to say, in this game, grade is king. The economic viability of La Planada is well expressed across a variety of data sets that have come out of the analytical work, including this most recent effort, and GMXS is very confident of the grades on all vein and rock targets. If the Phase II sampling and subsequent drilling results confirm the current model, we are talking a massive block of mineable ore totaling some 59M tonnes, or 3.15M troy gold ounces at a 1.5 g/tonne cut-off grade.

The La Tapada project (80% interest) to the north is a producer in the still hugely underdeveloped El Bagre-Zargoza mining district. With striking potential similarities to La Planada and existing registrations at the Colombian Mining Department putting the grade range in the 15-20 g/tonne area (with true bonanza potential in the 250 g/tonne grades in select pockets via artisanal mining methods), we have an attractive, highly prospective concession for which Gemini has slated a sampling/drilling program series. Mineral Primecap Geological Services, the firm who handled rock sampling at La Planada, has even turned up zones within the property that show extensive mineralization, including gold, silver, and some typically associated base metals all being present. Phase I systematic channel/vein chip sampling results completed in June ranged as high as 243 g/tonne Au, with an average grade from an 18-sample batch showing 25.97 g/tonne.

The company has designs to put in a processing facility at La Tapada as well as expanding the explorative work along trajectories defined by the additional zone discoveries in concert with the sampling and drilling programs slated for the property. This is a solid opportunity for investors to get into Colombian gold production (Dept of Antioquia region outputs some 1.5M oz Au annually) via a small, efficient junior with good deposits. Markets will be keen to look at new data coming out of La Tapada/La Planada to further size up GMXS, but it already looks to be a firm believer in growing shareholder value through production and exploration of carefully acquired properties.

Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GXPI.OB) Targets Colombia as its Key to Success

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GXPI.OB) is a mining and development company that is focusing its efforts in Colombia, South America. The company has successfully capitalized on the management team’s 15 years of experience by utilizing existing business relationships in the region to create an intermediate gold company.

Colombia has historically been one of the largest gold producing countries in the world, yet only a marginal portion has been explored with modern techniques. Using antiquated equipment, the Dept of Antioquia area currently produces over 1 million ounces of gold per year.

Due to Colombia’s past economic and political instability, the country’s mineral resources have remained untouched. In recent years, the political environment in Colombia has stabilized and the economy is now flourishing. In 2006, the country reported Latin America’s fastest GDP growth.

With the passing of an investment-friendly mining code, Colombia has now become one of the most favorable mining frontiers. The 2001 Mining Act helped clarify ownership and mining rights, providing added protection for foreign investors and promoting environmentally-friendly mining practices. Several foreign mining companies, like South Africa’s AngloGold Ashanti Ltd and Colombia Goldfields Limited, have begun to operate in the country.

The potential in Gemini’s La Planada site is estimated at over $3 billion. Interestingly, operators near La Tapata have approached Gemini with requests to process their gold with the new equipment being placed at the site through joint ventures. These types of agreements would provide Gemini with unexpected supplemental revenue.

With the combination of Colombia’s improved political climate and its vast untouched mineral potential, Gemini is in a great position to capitalize on the country’s mineral resources.

Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GXPI.OB) Estimates Costs to Move Forward Strategically

Friday, May 16th, 2008

Gemini Exploration (GXPI.OB) is a mining exploration and development company focused on acquiring, developing, and maximizing natural resource properties. The company is currently working on two mining properties in Colombia, South America, which have underdeveloped gold mines.

Gemini has an 80 percent share in La Tapata, located in Colombia’s El Bagre-Zargosa mining district. The property has a low percentage of gold resulting from the out-of-date equipment currently at the location. Gemini has prepared estimates on costs related to maximizing the property.

The initial estimates total just above $1.9 million. The outlay to modernize the facility would make the difference between the historical low-percentage results versus moving to a more efficient high-percentage result.

Exploration results at La Tapata show a potential $2000 gross net value per tonne. Based upon these estimates, the production level for the first year after modernization is roughly around 26,000 tons, which equates to $52 million. Once the basic process is optimized, the second year production level is estimated around 45,000 tons which equates to $90 million. The third year projection is roughly 55,000 tons, equaling $110 million.

The potential production levels at the site are tremendous. Based upon the numbers provided by the company, the modernization of La Tapata would launch Gemini to the next level.

Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GXPI.OB) has a Portfolio of Strategically Placed Properties

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

Gemini Exploration (GXPI.OB) is a mining exploration company developing its operations in Colombia, historically known as one of the largest gold-producing countries in the world. Gemini currently has two mining properties in the region: La Planada and La Tapata.

La Planada is a gold property in which Gemini holds 100 percent interest. High grade gold veins are known to exist, as the region was mined in the past. The property is located 80 km from Pasto, the capital of the Nariño Province, which is in the center of one of Colombia’s premier, underdeveloped gold sectors. Due to the distance from the city, there is enough open area to build the needed infrastructure to support the mining operations.

La Planada has excellent rock exposure to accommodate open pit mining with highly visible surface mineralization. There are various elevations being explored on the property, with five sets of veinlets crosscutting vein zones. The primary veins have been found to range from 0.4 meters to 2 meters in width. Secondary veins have been found every 1 to 2 meters with widths ranging from 3 cm to 20 cm. Additionally, the primary veins trend 25 degrees north to 30 degrees west, on a 10-degree dip.

Preliminary findings determined that an average grade of 1.4 to 4 grams per tonne of gold can be found to an elevation of 100 meters. The company is hypothesizing that the mineralization findings to 100 meters may continue to a depth of 200 meters. If the exploration confirms the hypothesis, Gemini intends to mine the entire block for processing. A block with dimensions of 200m deep by 300m wide by 400m long with an estimated average of 2.45 grams per cubic centimeter would produce 59 million tons of ore with a cutoff grade of 1.5g per ton gold. A yield of this amount would translate to over 3.1 million troy ounces of gold. Equating these estimates to the entire La Planada property would represent a yield of over 3 million troy ounces of gold, which would convert to about $3 billion dollars.

La Tapata is an 80-percent owned property in Colombia’s El Bagre-Zargosa mining district. The property is 42 km from the municipality of El Bagre. As with La Planada, access to La Tapata is mainly via open roadways, but there is a government military base about 6km away.

The facility is currently being mined with antiquated equipment resulting in a low percentage of gold. Gemini plans to build a modern processing facility to increase the efficiency at the site to produce greater yields of gold, silver, copper, and lead, all of which have been found on the property.

The main exposed vein at La Tapata measures up to 2 meters thick with a 45 degree dip. Visible, massive sulphides are exposed and run between 2 percent to 70 percent. Samples have been pulled along a 30-meter section of the main vein and resulted in amounts between 15 to 250 grams per tonne of gold.

Gemini has two major mining properties with the potential of huge returns. It is up to management to maximize the efficiency at each site to recover the largest rate of gold and other precious metals.

Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GXPI.OB) is “One to Watch”

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

Gemini Explorations is focused on engaging in the development and exploration of the La Planada Gold Project in the southern region of Colombia. This newly acquired property is found in the municipality of Sotomayor, department of the Nariño, and is readily accessible as it’s approximately 80 km from the capital city of the Nariño department by open road.

The La Planada Gold Project extends over 45 hectares and is comprised of Dagua Group Upper Cretaceous quartzites and siliceous siltstones intruded by a granodiorite plug. There are no less than three different crosscutting vein sets, and possibly more. The major vein ranges between 0.4 m and 2.0 m in width. Other veins are as wide as 20 cm (or more), and all have identifiable sulphides, as well as free gold.

After the initial round of drilling is completed and favorable results for grade of material are found, a bench test will be essential to determine the fineness of the gold and the amount of sulphides and other metals present. Senor Richard Apraez (a local consultant) has confirmed that there will be no issues with setting up a large-scale processing plant in the area. Furthermore, there is little concern of contamination as long as the processing plant is properly maintained.

The president of the company, Michael Hill, has over two decades of experience in venture capital finance, investment banking and business development in North America, Europe and South America. He has been extensively involved in the initial startup and secondary funding of both private and public companies in sectors ranging from mining exploration, oil and gas, cable and media to technology and biotechnology. Mr. Hill worked closely with Minera Andes Inc. to fund and develop their mining exploration program in Argentina, and later financed a gold and copper exploration company in Brazil.

Beacon Equity Research Featured Company: Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GXPI.OB)

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GXPI.OB) is a mining company with a focus on gold. This emerging company explores, develops and mines gold properties. The Company has main projects located in the heart of Colombia’s premier undeveloped gold districts. These districts are La Planada in Sotomayor, Nario and Los Chorros Gold Mine in El Bagre-Zargoza, Antioquia.

The Company has spent several months preparing an advanced drilling program. The preparation of this program has already commenced in the La Planada Project. In Phase I, sampling results from the La Planada Project have identified three significant cross-cutting gold vein zones which include vein structure gold values of up to 17 grams per ton of ore. Based on these Phase I sample results, the Company has reported a reserve estimate of 3.15 million gold ounces with a potential gross deposit value of approximately $2.3 billion.

Gemini Exploration’s focus is on gold mining prospects mainly in Colombia, South America. The Company holds earning interests ranging from 80% to 100% in two gold-producing regions of Colombia, including an estimated 3.15 million ounce gold deposit in the Los Andes Sotomayor Gold Belt. This gold deposit has an estimated gross asset value of roughly $2.3 billion.

The price of gold has risen and continues to rise. With these gains, gold mining is projected to remain a strong industry over the next decade. With Columbia being one of the more under explored countries in South America for mineral resources, Gemini Explorations, Inc. is in good position for success.

Small Cap Voice Featured Company: Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GXPI.OB)

Friday, November 30th, 2007

Gemini Explorations, Inc. (GXPI.OB) intends to focus on the development and exploration of the La Planda Gold Project, which is located in the southern district of Colombia. The property is easily accessible and located about 80 km from Pasto, the capital of Narino.

If La Planda reflects a grade similar to that of surrounding properties, there is much reason to believe that the entire deposit could be processed through bulk mining. The ore would also be processed using the same method, and quite possibly by the same plant.

A local consultant, Senor Richard Apraez, has confirmed that there will not be any problem establishing a large-scale processing plant in the area. If plans progress favorably, the number of available jobs would substantially increase in the area. The Company acknowledges that the importance of identifying a suitable location for such a facility, and is currently seeking the best location.
