Defense Metals Corp. (TSXV:DEFN) (OTCQB:DFMTF) has engaged Welsbach Holdings Pte Ltd. to assist in building awareness for its Wicheeda Rare Earth Element (REE) Property, providing physical product market research, introductions to supply chain partners, and assistance in commercial negotiations. According to the press release, the Wicheeda project
"has indicated mineral resources of 4,890,000 tonnes averaging 3.02% LREO (Light Rare Earth Elements) and inferred mineral resources of 12,100,000 tonnes averaging 2.90% LREO." Brendan Jephcott, Welsbach's Asia advisory partner said:

"We are pleased to engage with Defense Metals Corp. regarding the Wicheeda project. The current global situation requires supply chains to strengthen their resilience and increase their capacity, in order to respond to growing demand. Part of our mission at Welsbach is to support the efforts of junior mining companies and assist them in their commercial processes. Welsbach is a specialist in the Energy Transition Metals Supply Chain and we are keen to bring Defense Metals Corp project to our network of mid and downstream partners".

Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX:NCM) has reported half year results, indicating record December half year free cash flow of $439 million, and "Statutory profit and Underlying profit of $553 million, up 134% and 98% respectively." Newcrest CEO Sandeep Biswas said:

"In 2018 we set ourselves some ambitious targets to Forge a Stronger Newcrest. Our progress and achievements over the past three years has put us in a very strong position to not just weather the global uncertainty associated with COVID-19, but to keep our eyes firmly on our future growth agenda. We have a fabulous position in our industry, with a long reserve and resource life, a unique set of technical skills, a very strong balance sheet, numerous organic growth options in progress and an exciting exploration pipeline."

Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (NYSE:AEM) has reported its Q4 and full year 2020 results. Highlights include a Q4 net income of $205.2 million, or net income of $0.85 per share, and a record net income of $511.6 million, or $2.12 per share, for the full year. Agnico Eagle's CEO, Sean Boyd, said:

"As we move forward, our focus will be on maximizing the full potential of our existing mines through mineral reserve additions and incremental production expansions while also building new projects like the recently approved underground mines at Canadian Malartic and Amaruq. At the same time, we will continue to look to strengthen our business and build additional value by adding projects with excellent potential to grow and become important cash flow generators, like the recently acquired Hope Bay project."

Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV:ARU) has announced that scout drilling has commenced at the Tsenken N1 target in the company's Lost Cities - Cutucu Project in southeastern Ecuador. The company's Chairman & CEO, Keith Barron, explained:

"Tsenken N1 is an area where there are a number of small, mineralized breccia bodies with limited exposure on surface in some stream beds. Most of the area in between the breccias is covered by thick foliage and not outcropping. Breccias, which essentially are bodies of broken and cemented rock, in this case with copper mineralization between the fragments, can be formed geologically in many ways, but here a key to their interpretation is the presence of "exotic fragments" which are clearly not from the wallrock. These fragments have been brought, probably from considerable depth, up the breccia conduit, by volcanic eruption. Breccia conduits or "breccia pipes" commonly will coalesce at depth into a larger breccia body or into the upper levels of a porphyry. Several years ago, I examined a group of metre-scale copper breccia pipes underground and on surface at Tres Chorreras in Azuay Province in Ecuador, and these ultimately merged downward into a copper porphyry that was intersected in drilling. I am hopeful that we have a similar geological scenario here."
