The Company announced the initiation of its fiscal 2016 exploration program, including the extraction and milling of a bulk sample, at its Stog’er Tight Project located approximately 3.5 km east of the Pine Cove mill along the Pine Cove mine road. The fiscal 2016 Stog’er Tight field exploration program will include stripping of historical mine workings to expose the deposit, detailed mapping and sampling of the deposit at surface, near-surface drilling and the extraction of a 2,800 tonne bulk sample. The goal of the exploration program, including the bulk sample, is to gain information at or very-near surface to determine the historical mining surface, to confirm mineralization at key locations and to develop grade control and mining techniques.
The Company announced that it had recently conducted 1,938 m of diamond drilling in 10 holes adjacent to the Pine Cove gold mine. The purpose of this drill program was to achieve the following three goals: 1) increase total mineral resources to extend the mine life of the Pine Cove pit, 2) reduce the stripping ratio of the remaining life of mine by outlining near-surface mineral resources, and 3) reduce the haul distance of waste-rock material by placing a waste dump near the northern margin of the pit design. All 10 holes were successful in advancing these goals.
The Company announced the discovery of a new zone of gold mineralization, referred to as the Argyle Zone, located approximately 5 km from its Pine Cove mill in the Baie Verte mining district in Newfoundland, Canada. In November 2014, the Company trenched and performed channel sampling in the Argyle Zone, which is located northeast of the Stog’er Tight Deposit and west of the town of Ming’s Bight. Anaconda was following up on numerous gold-in-soil anomalies obtained during a 2012 soil sampling program in this area, which had never before been prospected. Alteration was noted over a broad area with significant gold mineralization observed in four trenches in two areas approximately 200 m apart. The discovery of the Argyle Zone extended the length of known mineralization within an approximately 7 km long trend of highly prospective rocks, which hosts the Pine Cove and Stog’er Tight deposits as well as numerous other prospects and showings.
The Company announced the remaining results of the 2014 diamond-drilling program at the Stog’er Tight Project. The program consisted of 2,265 m of diamond drilling in 31 holes, designed to infill known shallow mineralization, intersect down-dip mineralization in areas where gold is anticipated, but not previously intersected (holes BN14-198, 200 to 203, and 205), and to verify historical drilling programs by twinning existing drill holes in anticipation of publishing a National Instrument 43-101 - Standard of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) compliant mineral resource (holes BN14-208 to 216). As part of this design, holes were distributed over approximately 500 m of strike length. All drill holes tested mineralization at depths less than 125 m. Highlights include 10.52 g/t gold over 3.5 m, 8.13 g/t gold over 4.5 m and 7.2 g/t gold over 4.0 m.
The Company announced initial results of the 2014 diamond-drilling program at the Stog’er Tight Project. The program consisted of 2,265 m of diamond drilling, which included 902 m of infill drilling concentrated in the centre of known mineralization to depths less than 85 m. Highlights include 18.6 g/t gold over 3.5 m and 4.94 g/t gold over 10.5 m.
The Company announced the initiation of diamond drilling on its Stog’er Tight Project. The 2014 Stog’er Tight program consisted of 2,000 m of diamond drilling designed to infill portions of the deposit and expand the deposit size.
The Company reported the initiation of diamond drilling at its Pine Cove gold mine. The ten-hole, 2,000 m program tested the potential down-dip extension of the Pine Cove gold mine. Drilling focused on extending the gold mineralization intersected by previous drilling immediately north of the Pine Cove open pit.
The Company reported additional diamond-drilling results from the down-dip area within the Point Rousse Project. Prior to the commencement of drilling at the Deer Cove Property, Anaconda drilled a single, strategically placed hole on the northern edge of the Pine Cove gold mine’s ultimate pit limit. Hole PC-14-234 returned multiple zones of gold mineralization including 2.46 g/t gold over 8.5 m and 3.17 g/t gold over 8.5 m. The assay results highlight the key zones of mineralization that were intersected in hole PC-14-234.
The Company reported historic assay results from 20 previously-drilled holes by predecessor property holders from 1986 to 1988 and 2010 on its Deer Cove Property, which is located approximately 8 kilometres (“km”) from the Pine Cove mill on the Ming's Bight Peninsula. Following a positive review of historic geological data, it began a 2,000 m diamond-drilling program on its Deer Cove Property in June 2014.
The Company announced that Tim Casgrain, who joined the Company's board of directors on October 10, 2013, was appointed Chairman. Mr. Casgrain replaces Lewis Lawrick, who will continue to serve as a director of the Company.

(“Alberta”), a subsidiary of Coordinates Capital, to acquire a 100% undivided interest in the Deer Cove and Stog'er Tight gold projects. The three mining licenses, totalling 48 claims (approximately 1,235 hectares), and the two mining leases (approximately 47 hectares) are adjacent to Anaconda's property around the Pine Cove Project.
The Company announced that Tim Casgrain had joined its board of directors.
The Company announced that, on September 9, 2013, it received the US$1 million payment from Tal Tal relating to the commercial production milestone set forth in the stock purchase agreement dated December 7, 2011 ("SPA"), between La Veta and Tal Tal.
The Company reported that diamond drilling at its Romeo and Juliet prospect had intersected a new gold-bearing zone dubbed the Balcony Zone, located between the Romeo and Connecting Zones. It appears to dip steeply to the north, trends roughly east-west and is spatially associated with a northeast-trending topographic linear. Mineralization was traced for approximately 100 meters ("m") and is open to the east, west and down-dip. Gold is associated with pyritic altered mafic volcanic rocks, which is different from the Romeo and Juliet massive quartz vein hosted style of gold mineralization. A structural interpretation is therefore underway to help guide future drilling and to understand better these positive anomalies.
The Company announced that on June 13, 2013, the Company made its final payment on a 5.5% interest bearing loan, originally advanced in the amount of $500,000, from the Newfoundland and Labrador Government's Department of Innovation Business and Rural Development (formerly INTRD).
