“Since being listed on January 26 as the new entity Monarch Mining Corporation, we have made great progress and are now well on our way to restarting operations at the Beaufor Mine, aiming to increase the mine’s previous annual production,” said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer of Monarch. “At the moment, we are getting the Beaufor Mine and Beacon Mill ready to start the pre-production phase start this fall, and we are continuing to recruit personnel to that we can start commercial production by June 2022. On the exploration side, the 42,500-metre drilling program is ongoing at Beaufor, with four underground drills currently on site, and we are extremely pleased with the results to date.”

“Thanks to strategic financings undertaken during the year, we have managed to increase our cash and balance-of-sale-receivable position to approximately $38 million as at September 15, 2021, while minimizing share dilution for our shareholders. We also continue to move work forward on our other advanced projects, McKenzie Break and Croinor Gold, which both have excellent exploration potential,” concluded Mr. Lacoste.
