Golden Minerals Begins Drilling at Rodeo Gold Project in Durango, Mexico

8 julio 2020 ·  · Topic: mexico  · 

Golden Minerals plans to drill approximately 20 holes to better define the high-grade core of the Rodeo deposit. The upcoming drill program will expand on the historic drilling campaigns that successfully tested multiple gold-quartz veins and breccias of the Rodeo low sulfidation vein system with encouraging results, including:

The objectives of the drilling program are to provide greater detail on the gold mineralization at Rodeo and to provide sample material for metallurgical and geotechnical testing, an important step towards the future development of the Rodeo project outlined in the recent Preliminary Economic Assessment filed on May 28, 2020 ( link ), Drips, D., April 1, 2020, NI 43-101 Technical Report, Preliminary Economic Assessment, Rodeo Project, Rodeo, Durango, Mexico, Mineral Resources Engineering, Salt Lake City, UT. Warren Rehn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Golden Minerals, commented, "The proximity of the Rodeo project to our existing processing facilities at Velardeña presents an excellent opportunity to generate significant revenue from Rodeo starting in early 2021. We are optimistic that the drilling will improve our confidence in the deposit and enable us to continue to move towards development."

Rodeo is an open pit gold project within a 1,900-hectare claim located in the State of Durango, Mexico, approximately 80 kilometers west of the Company’s Velardeña Properties and processing mills. Golden acquired the Rodeo property subject to a royalty interest due to La Cuesta International in the second quarter 2015, prior to which exploration by other companies identified a gold-bearing system exposed at the surface. Golden conducted a 2,080-meter core drilling program in 2016 and outlined a minable open pit with a high-grade resource base of: Classification Cut-off grade

Cautionary Note to United States Investors Regarding Estimates of Indicated Mineral Resources

This press release uses the terms "mineral resources" and "indicated mineral resources" which are defined in, and required to be disclosed by, Canadian National Instrument NI 43-101 (“NI 43-101”). We advise U.S. investors that these terms are not recognized under SEC Industry Guide 7. Accordingly, the disclosures regarding mineralization in this news release may not be comparable to similar information disclosed by Golden Minerals in the reports it files with the SEC. The estimation of measured resources and indicated resources involves greater uncertainty as to their existence and economic feasibility than the estimation of proven and probable reserves. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any or all mineral resources are economically or legally mineable or that these mineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves. In addition, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute SEC Industry Guide 7 compliant “reserves” as in-place tonnage and grade without reference to unit amounts. U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and other SEC filings.

Mexico criticized for misreporting data on migrant trafficking victims

8 julio 2020 ·  · Topic: mexico  · 

MEXICO CITY (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Mexico’s immigration authority misreported the number of migrant victims of human trafficking and smuggling it identified last year, new data show, as advocates said a lack of reliable data was hindering the government’s efforts to tackle the crimes.

The National Migration Institute (INM) said in January that it had supported 601 trafficking and smuggling victims between December 2018 and November 2019.

Yet data obtained by the Thomson Reuters Foundation revealed the true figure was 167, and that most of the migrants had been victims of other crimes from robbery and extortion to homicide.

A freedom of information request found 116 migrants had been smuggled while 51 were trafficked. The former refers to people who willingly pay to cross borders illegally whereas the latter involves individuals being exploited through force or deception.

An INM official said there had been an “imprecision” with the January data and confirmed that the 601 migrants had not all been trafficked or smuggled. INM is the agency responsible for regulating migration, including visas and deportations.

The erroneous numbers come at a time when advocates say the government has little to show for its fight against trafficking. Top officials rarely discuss the issue and a national plan to combat it – scheduled for last year – has not been published.

“We don’t know if (the INM) did it on purpose or if it was a mistake,” said Guadalupe Correa-Cabrera, an associate professor at U.S.-based George Mason University who studies trafficking.

“No matter the reason they got it wrong, it’s bad.”

The president’s office did not respond to questions about the data or its plans for combating trafficking. DATA LACKING

The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) has said there may be between 50,000 and 500,000 trafficking victims in Mexico – from sexual exploitation to forced labor – but academics say the real number is hard to pin down with concrete data lacking.

Thousands of migrants pass through Mexico each year, mostly people from Central America aiming to reach the United States.

The government of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador last year sent thousands of troops to the nation’s southern border to prevent migrants passing, sometimes leading to violent clashes.

Rodolfo Casillas, an academic at the Latin American Faculty Of Social Sciences (FLACSO) in Mexico City, said the true number of migrants trafficked or smuggled through Mexico each year was likely far higher than the figure recorded by the INM.

“If you take into account the context of what happened in the year, the number is insignificant,” he said, referring to the large number of migrants that passed through the country.

“It’s a situation that almost makes you want to cry.”

The United States’ annual Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report – published last month – said the Mexican government should increase resources and training for officials to accurately identify and refer trafficking victims for support.

Last year, a government watchdog said state and federal prosecutors lacked basic information on most of the foreign trafficking victims found between June 2012 and July 2017.

Activist Monica Salazar, head of the non-profit Dignificando el Trabajo (DITRAC), said that there was a lack of understanding and political will on trafficking in the current administration.

“There’s very little interest in general … there still isn’t much clarity,” she said.

Mexico cartel behind brazen attacks emerges as ‘most urgent threat’ to country’s national security

8 julio 2020 ·  · Topic: mexico  · 

Mexican drug plane catches on fire after making illegal landing on rural highway Mexican police found an alleged drug plane on fire and a truck full of cocaine nearby. A drug cartel with a penchant for launching brazen attacks — including a recent assassination attempt on Mexico City’s police chief – has now emerged as the most powerful criminal organization in Mexico following the fall of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, officials are warning.

The Jalisco New Generation Cartel, centered around the fentanyl and methamphetamines trades, has seized power and influence by killing more than 100 public servants in its home state, ranging from mayors to soldiers, local officials tell The Wall Street Journal.

“These people have the firepower and the money to challenge the Mexican state,” Renato Sales, one of Mexico’s former security commissioners, said in an interview with the newspaper. “The Jalisco New Generation Cartel is the most urgent threat to Mexico’s national security.” An abandoned vehicle that is believed to have been used by gunmen in an attack against Mexico City’s chief of police is sealed off with yellow tape and guarded by responding officers on June 26. Heavily-armed gunmen attacked and wounded Omar Garcia Harfuch in a brazen operation that left an unspecified number of dead, Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said. (AP) Mexican intelligence officials attribute the cartel’s growing strength to its unity – as it has not been weakened by internal conflicts among members. Other cartels in Mexico also have come under siege internationally – most notably the Sinaloa Cartel, which “El Chapo” used to run before being imprisoned in the U.S.

The Wall Street Journal reports the Jalisco cartel killed a federal judge and his wife last month and Mexican authorities have intercepted their telephone calls to compile a list of who may be targeted next. Separately, the cartel is waging war against gangs in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato over control of a $3 billion market in stolen gasoline, the newspaper adds. Members of the Mexico national guard walk near an unregistered drug rehabilitation center after a shooting in Irapuato, Mexico, on July 1. The violence occured in a region where the Jalisco New Generation Cartel reportedly is fighting for control of a $3 billion market in stolen gasoline. (AP) “This is an example of the challenge the Mexican state is being confronted with,” Enrique Alfaro, the governor of Jalisco – who is reported to be on the list – was quoted as telling local media. “What we are seeing is a threat to institutions.”

The Jalisco cartel is run by Nemesio Oseguera, whom the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has a $10 million reward out for information leading to his capture. Oseguera, a former Mexico police officer, once was jailed in the U.S. for distributing heroin and is now believed to be hiding somewhere in the mountains of Jalisco state, according to The Wall Street Journal.

MEXICAN DRUG LORD WANTED IN US AGENT’S DEATH IS PLEADING POVERTY IN HOPES OF AVOIDING ARREST

Last year, the DEA labeled the Jalisco cartel “the most well-armed" in Mexico and said it is dealing its drugs in American cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston. Nemesio Oseguera, the leader of the Jalisco cartel. (DEA) Five years ago, the cartel blasted a Mexican Air Force helicopter out of the sky with a rocket-propelled grenade, killing eight soldiers and a policewoman in what was the first time ever that an organized crime group downed a military aircraft in the country, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Now, security analysts that spoke to The Wall Street Journal believe the cartel is launching attacks in response to recent setbacks it has suffered, like the February extradition of Oseguera’s son to the U.S. to face drug charges. The federal judge that had been killed in Colima state served in one of the cases against him. The relatives of a woman killed during the assassination attempt of Mexico City’s Chief of Police Omar Garcia Harfuch react near the crime scene on June 26. In March, U.S. authorities arrested 600 people believed to be linked to the cartel north of the border, while in June, Mexico’s Finance Ministry froze nearly 2,000 bank accounts tied to their operations, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“I feel that the Jalisco cartel is on a crusade of vengeance for the injuries they feel they have suffered,” Eduardo Guerrero, a Mexican security analyst, told the newspaper. “We are at the beginning of a wave of massacres and assassinations of police and judicial officials. It’s part of a strategy to show strength to the government.”

The Jalisco New Generation Cartel is also putting Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in a “conundrum,” says Falko Ernst, a security analyst with nonprofit International Crisis Group.

Lopez Obrador in the past has vowed to push back against cartel violence with a “hugs not bullets” strategy .

“If he acts boldly, he would be undermining his own rhetoric,” Ernst told The Wall Street Journal. “If he doesn’t act, the cartels would see it as a message of impunity.”

Trump Hosts Mexico’s President to Spotlight Trade and Immigration

8 julio 2020 ·  · Topic: mexico  · 

Carlos Barria/Reuters

President Trump welcomed Mexico’s president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to the White House on Wednesday for meetings on trade, the economy and immigration — subjects far more compatible with Mr. Trump’s re-election campaign themes than the spreading coronavirus.

The meeting is meant to celebrate the official July 1 enactment of a revised North American Free Trade Agreement ratified by the United States, Canada and Mexico. Mr. Trump has cited the deal as a signature achievement, although economists say it will have marginal effects.

Mr. López Obrador has also played an important role in Mr. Trump’s relentless campaign to restrict immigration across the southern U.S. border, ordering more vigorous enforcement on Mexican territory to prevent border crossings into the United States.

And the visit — the second to the White House by a foreign leader since the coronavirus shutdown in March — provides a welcome distraction for Mr. Trump and Mr. López Obrador, who have both been criticized for inadequate responses to the pandemic.

The two leaders have little in common ideologically — Mr. López Obrador is an avowed leftist — but Mr. Trump has used America’s tremendous economic leverage, including threats of tariffs and even a total border closing, to pressure the Mexican leader.

Mr. López Obrador stylistically shares some of Mr. Trump’s bombast but eschews displays of wealth, including the use of a private presidential plane. He flew commercial to Washington from Mexico City on Tuesday, his first trip abroad since his landslide 2018 election, connecting through Atlanta.

After afternoon meetings, the leaders will sign a joint declaration before dining with Mexican and American business executives. A senior administration official said the event amounted to a state dinner “lite,” within the limits of coronavirus precautions.

On Wednesday morning, Mr. Trump’s re-election campaign issued a statement hailing the revised NAFTA deal, known as the U.S.M.C.A., calling it a “stark contrast” to “Joe Biden’s failed globalism.”

A Canadian spokeswoman said that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had chosen not to travel to the United States this week to celebrate the U.S.M.C.A. because of a scheduling conflict with a session of Parliament on Wednesday. But relations between the Trump administration and Canadian officials have turned chilly since last month, when American officials said their Canadian counterparts must voluntarily restrain their own metal exports or face tariffs again.

The U.S.M.C.A. officially went into effect on July 1, but American officials have emphasized that both Mexico and Canada still fall short of fulfilling several of the pledges they made under the pact.

Trump administration officials have criticized Mexico’s continued refusal of American biotech products, like genetically modified corn, and its unfair treatment of American news media companies.

And Mexico has only partly carried out the major reforms to its labor system that the deal required, which were aimed at lifting wages and improving working conditions in Mexico, to put American and Canadian workers on more even footing with Mexican competitors.

GULLIBLE’S TRAVELS: RNC moves convention to Mexico after Jacksonville issues safety measures against COVID

8 julio 2020 ·  · Topic: mexico  · 

Satire from Kellyanne Conway’s dog

MEMO: RNC National Committee/Trump Re-election Committee

TO: All State Committees

RE: Relocation of the Nomination Convention

A week after Mayor Lenny Curry said he didn’t think it was “prudent” to require the wearing of face masks in Jacksonville, Florida, the city did an about-face Monday and issued a face-covering mandate. President Trump has decided an adoring, screaming crowd of devotees wearing face masks offers mixed messages for the broadcast and digital audiences. There is a real possibility that, by convention time, some form of social distancing rule may be in full force, too. The search committee considered Greenland as an alternate location, but the recent leaked White House memo indicating the president had only wanted to buy the island so he could give it to President Putin as a birthday gift, turned that into an untenable option. The final decision is now that Tijuana, Mexico, will be the hosting city.

Needless to say, this will present some new challenges:

OPTICS: The president tells us, if he can make Republicans love Putin, he can make them love Mexicans. How hard can it be to persuade evangelicals that rapists and thugs offer a great opportunity for the redemption of sinners into the Kingdom of God? All friendly news and talk outlets will be given positive talking points (i.e. family values, traditional religions, loose gun laws). All attendees will get a “Mexico! Come for the Fascism, Stay for the Fun!” themed travel pack. “Make America Great Again, Again” sombreros will replace baseball caps. Rush Limbaugh is prepared to state ‘The Three Amigos” is his favorite movie. Ivanka and Jared will be getting a midmorning slot on Fox to show folks how to duplicate the Taco Bell menu at home.

BORDER WALL EVENTS: All old wall messaging is out. Now, it’s not a barrier but an event space—a place for good times with good friends! Free pop-up drive-ins will be set up on either side of the main crossing points. They will show Mexican movies and some of those ’50s films with Carmen Miranda dancing around with bananas on her head.

PRODUCT PLACEMENT: Budweiser will do a series of commercials showing Davy Crockett and General Santa Anna, deciding a cold Bud Lite and some cute señoritas are better than a fight to the finish at the Alamo.

FOR THE HIGHBROWS: The National Gallery has some old Rembrandt’s and Impressionists stuff in the basement. The wall will become a pop-up gallery. The Robert Frost poem “Mending Wall” will be mandatory for memorization for all English classes in school. The line “Good fences make good neighbors” will be stenciled in water paint (for easy removal after the event) on the wall in the Tijuana area.

DELEGATE SAFETY: As some of you know, Attorney General Barr ran a mob law office before he set up his current mob office in the Department of Justice. He still has contacts with some of his border cartel clients from the early days. They have been contracted to provide event security. For an “at home feeling,” the Ohio State Marching Buckeyes will lend their uniforms. There was a problematic issue of the cartel having to stop their kidnap/ransom funding activities throughout the event. We have reached a compromise: They can do what they want with any protesters who might be foolish enough to appear.

THE VENUE: The El Centro Pacifico has a floor area of 3,715 square meters—whatever the hell that comes out to in real area, but they tell us it’s big. They will change the venue name to “El Centro Yanqui Come Back” for our event. All the major American hotel franchises are a shuttle bus ride away.

MEDICAL: Mexico will offer a happy glimpse of America after we get rid of the last light of Obamacare. I believe the phrases “Who’s paying?” and “Hundred Dollar Bills Only” work in both languages. Delegates should be reminded that Montezuma’s Revenge is better than COVID.

MUSIC: Since every musical group has issued an injunction against the Trump administration, we are going with Stephen Foster’s minstrel music. It will remind our delegates of when America was great, as they leave humming “Camptown Races” all the do-da day.

EVENT NOTES: The escalator ride from the Trump Tower announcement four years ago will be duplicated. This time the president and Melania will be sitting on an escalator mounted Harley Davidson motorcycle with Confederate flags.

VP Pence’s wife won’t let Mike go because she thinks Mexico is icky. We have arranged for the “Silence of the Lambs” animatronic from Universal Studios. Put a face mask on it and hopefully no one will know—well, except for he’ll have all of Hannibal Lecter’s charm.

To stress the fact the president is a strong and vigorous man, he will appear on stage with Melania, his ex-wives and any available porn stars and Playmates he may or may not have paid off.

ADDENDUM: Some older delegates, in carefree days, may have once read Kerouac’s “On the Road.” As a result, they might ask directions to the club where a woman has sex with a donkey twice a night. Our official response is the club has closed and the donkey is dead. Unofficially, I think Senator Grassley still remembers how to get there.
