In July 2017, Emgold Mining signed a letter of intent (LoI) for an option agreement to acquire an 80% interest in Nevada Sunrise Gold’s Golden Arrow gold-silver property in Nevada, US.

SSR Mining is a metals producer with three operations, including the Marigold gold mine in Nevada, the Seabee Gold Operation in Saskatchewan, and the 75%-owned and operated Puna Operations joint venture (JV) in Argentina.

Last December, it commenced commercial production at the Chinchillas silver-lead-zinc mine located in the Puna region of Argentina’s Jujuy province.

Golden Arrow noted that it is actively exploring a new portfolio of advanced projects in Chile and other targets within its portfolio of over 185,000ha of properties in Argentina.
