Yamana Gold : Gold Value Benefits From Global Political Uncertainties

05/30/2017 | 09:01am

NEW YORK, May 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Geopolitical uncertainties helped gold price rise to its highest level in nearly four
weeks on last Friday. Gold spot increased in value near 1 percent to $1,268.10 an ounce on
Friday, while gold futures for August delivery jumped 0.94 percent to $1,271.70 per ounce.
Investors were concerned about the Group of Seven summit scheduled over this past weekend
and the upcoming U.K elections could further shake up global politics. Gold is considered
as safe-haven assets during times of political and economic changes. The yellow metal rose
1.2 percent last week and has gained about 10.5 percent year-to-date. Kenadyr Mining
Holdings Corp. (OTC: KNDYF), Sandstorm Gold Ltd (NYSE: SAND), New Gold Inc. (NYSE: NGD),

Colin Cieszynski, Chief Market Strategist at CMC Markets, told MarketWatch: "At the
moment it's increasing political uncertainty that is driving the gains rather than Federal
Reserve speculation...Between Thursday's contentious NATO summit (last week) and the
potential for fireworks at this weekend's G-7 Summit, plus a tightening U.K. election race,
capital has been moving back in to defensive havens like gold." 

Kenadyr Mining Holdings Corp. (OTC: KNDYF) announced late last week that drilling at
the south zone of Kenadyr Mining (Holdings) Corp.'s 100-per-cent-owned Borubai licence in
the Kyrgyz Republic has intersected widespread gold mineralization, including 40 metres at
6.17 grams per tonne gold. The south zone is directly adjacent to Zijin Mining Group Co.
Ltd.'s Taldy Bulak Levoberejnyi mine deposit, currently in production. (TSX-V: KEN)

Initial drilling was designed to intersect an area which was previously drilled by the
Soviets between 1970 and 1990, and which intersected significant gold mineralization. The
current drill hole provides support for the validity of the historical Soviet results and
indicates that widespread gold mineralization may exist on Kenadyr's licence directly
adjacent to (within 100 metres of) the TBL mine.

The south zone is open in three directions and to depth, and there are strong
indications that it connects to the TBL deposit. Core recovery is greater than 95 per cent,
and all intervals have been assayed using fire assay methods at an internationally
accredited laboratory (ALS Global). The hole has reached its target depth of 850 metres,
and the remainder of the hole is being split by diamond saw and prepared for assay.

Kenadyr is in a strong position having a robust balance sheet, no debt nor significant
payments owing, and a supportive institutional shareholder base. The management team has
extensive in-country operational experience and merger and acquisition expertise.

Dr. Alexander Becker, Kenadyr's Chief Executive Officer, states: "Partial results from
our initial 2017 drill hole at Borubai have exceeded our expectations. Based on the
geometry of the adjacent TBL orebody, it is the corporation's interpretation that these
intersections are close to true widths. Subject to obtaining additional drill results, the
corporation believes that the mineralization encountered in our initial drill hole
validates and supports the findings reported in historic drilling, and indicates that the
mineralization being mined at the adjacent TBL mine may continue onto Kenadyr's Borubai

Sandstorm Gold Ltd (NYSE: SAND) is a gold streaming and royalty company. Sandstorm
provides upfront financing to gold mining companies that are looking for capital and in
return, receives the right to a percentage of the gold produced from a mine, for the life

Corp. have combined their businesses to create Trek Mining Inc. As part of the business
combination, a non-brokered private placement financing was completed for gross proceeds
of C$83,419,172. Sandstorm holds a 3% to 5% sliding scale net smelter returns ('NSR')
royalty on Aurizona and at gold prices less than or equal to $1,500 per ounce, the royalty
is a 3% NSR. In addition to the sliding scale royalty on Aurizona, Sandstorm holds a 2%
NSR royalty on the greenfields property optioned to AngloGold.

New Gold Inc. (NYSE: NGD) is engaged in the development and operation of mineral
properties. New Gold owns 100% of the Rainy River and Blackwater projects located in
Canada. On March 10th, the company revealed that it has closed its previously announced

underwriters of the over-allotment option, at a price of US$2.80 per share for aggregate
gross proceeds to New Gold of approximately US$173 million. New Gold intends to use the
net proceeds from the Offering to finance the completion of the construction of the Rainy

the continued expansion of its Switchback vein system with additional step-out drill
intercepts at the Aguila Project's Arista Mine. These new results, which mark the
Company's farthest step-out drill hole to date, intercepted multiple veins including 5.01
meters of 3.98 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, and extends the Switchback system's total
strike length to over 575 meters, a 275 meter expansion on strike since January 1, 2017.

Yamana Gold Inc. (NYSE: AUY) is a gold producer with gold production, gold development

basis at an offering price of C$3.00 per Brio Gold common share. Peter Marrone, Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer of Yamana, said, "We are pleased to announce this sale of Brio
Gold shares which is consistent with the plan we have implemented to realize value from
our Brio Gold holdings. The sale of over 26 million shares of Brio reduces our investment
significantly and is expected to meaningfully increase liquidity for the shares....
