SilverCrest Metals Inc. (NYSE American:SILV) (TSX:SIL) has announced the remaining in-fill drill results to be included in the upcoming Feasibility Study for its Las Chispas Property in Sonora, Mexico. N. Eric Fier, CEO of SilverCrest Metals, explained:

"These Babicanora in-fill drill results show that we generally 'moved ounces around within a confined area' for these previously defined four veins, resulting in less continuous mineralized footprints but with higher grades, which is typical of late-stage exploration drilling. The reduced mineralized footprint in the Babi FW Vein will have minimal impact on total district mineralization. With the benefit of greater drilling density and understanding of lithologic and structural controls, we now have a higher confidence in our ability to identify additional high-grade mineralization for all veins in the Las Chispas district. The feasibility resource estimation will include 21 veins (5 veins containing a majority of the high-grade mineralization) of the known 45 veins. The best opportunities for resource expansion for the upcoming Feasibility Study are the Babi Vista Vein and Babi Vista Splay Vein, which were both discovered after the PEA release. We look forward to the announcement of the Las Chispas Feasibility Study later this month, which will include a Resource update and our maiden Reserve Estimate."

Rio Tinto Group (NYSE:RIO) has reached an agreement on a new electricity agreement with Meridian Energy allowing New Zealand's Aluminium Smelter (NZAS) to continue operating the Tiwai Point aluminium smelter until December 31, 2024. The Chief Executive of NZAS, Alf Barrios, said:

"We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Meridian Energy that will enable the Tiwai Point smelter to continue producing some of the lowest carbon aluminium in the world. This agreement improves Tiwai Point's competitive position and secures the extension of operation to December 2024. It also provides Rio Tinto, the New Zealand government, Meridian, and the Southland community more time to plan for the future and importantly gives our hard-working team at Tiwai and our customers the certainty they deserve."

Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:GOLD) has reported its preliminary full year and fourth quarter 2020 results, indicating that it has met its 2020 guidance targets. Highlights include preliminary gold production for the full year of 4.8 million ounces, midway between the 4.6 to 5.0 million ounce guidance range, and preliminary copper production of 457 million pounds, which is within the guidance range of 440 to 500 million pounds. More detail and analysis regard the company's production and sales will follow when Barrick reports its quarterly and full year 2020 results on February 18, 2021.

Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX:NCM) has announced that its Board has approved $146 million AUD "for the construction of the box cut, exploration decline and associated surface infrastructure at the Havieron Project in Western Australia." The company's Managing Director and CEO, Sandeep Biswas, said:

"We continue our journey towards potentially achieving commercial production from the Havieron Project within three years from the commencement of the box cut and exploration decline. Mineralisation remains open in multiple directions outside of Havieron's initial Inferred Mineral Resource estimate and, with infrastructure in place at our nearby Telfer mine, we are excited about this growth project. Together with the support of our stakeholders, we hope to deliver significant value from the Havieron Project and our other exploration prospects in the Paterson Province."
