The much anticipated assay results have finally been released. AUX Resources (TSXV: AUX) this morning released assay results from its 2020 drill program at its flagship Georgia Project, which contains the historic Georgia River Mine. Highlights from the program include 103 g/t gold and 53 g/t silver being intersected over 2.74 metres.
The 2020 drill program was focused on extending mineralization from the Georgia River Mine, a historic high-grade gold mine located on the property. Specifically, drilling was focused on the extensions of the SW vein along both strike and depth, with intercepts revealing that the vein remains open both at depth and along strike.
Drill results from a total of eight holes were released this morning, with the highlighted figure above coming from drill hole GE20023. Hole GE20022 meanwhile posted intersections as high as 62.5 g/t gold and 36.6 g/t silver over 2,24 metres.
Looking to 2021, the company has indicated that drilling will be focused on testing the limits of the high-grade zone and testing for structural controls of subsidiary high-grade ore shoots. The company will now also look to evaluate other local vein sets for the potential of similar mineralization.
The company is also in the process of having assays completed for 5,000 metres of recovered historic diamond drill core from George. The core comes from exploration conducted between 1979 and 1996, which are expected to contribute to an improved understanding of the SW vein. Results from this effort are expected this month.
“Despite having been explored for over a century, our intercepts of the SW Vein are among the best ever recorded around the Georgia River Mine. Our drilling confirms that the target is open in multiple directions, including depth. Advancing underexplored historic mines has long been a powerful and successful driver in the Golden Triangle, and we see numerous parallels with other projects in the area, including Brucejack and the Scottie Gold Mine.”
Ian Slater, CEO of AUX Resources
Lastly, the company also conducted field work at its Silver Crown property during the 2020 field season, which included confirming the strike length of mineralization of the property to be beyond 1,400 metres. Channel sampling was conducted on 500 metres of vein strike length here, with samples collected every 40 metres. Results from this program are expected this month, with a 3,500 metre drill program currently planned for the 2021 season.

Pokémon Legends Arceus gives the series the Zelda: Breath of the Wild open-world treatment – MobileSyrup
During the series’ 25th anniversary presentation, The Pokémon Company revealed a few new games, including Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes and more footage of Pokémon Snap, but Pokémon Legends Arceus stole the show.
The new game looks to modernize the classic Pokémon gameplay formula by making it more of an open-world game with a tighter focus on collecting Pocket Monsters.
The brief presentation showed off how players can crouch and sneak up on Pokémon to surprise them with Poké Balls.
Legends Arceus’ plot sets your player on a mission to create the world’s first Pokédex, suggesting that Arceus is set so far in the past that it could be ripe for sequels.
Pokémon Legends Arceus is slated to release in early 2022 for the Nintendo Switch. If you want to scratch your Pokémon itch in 2021, you’ll be stuck with Pokémon Snap and Brillant Diamond and Shiny Pearl.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake with a free PS5 upgrade is $30 – The Verge
Yesterday, Square Enix announced that it plans to release an enhanced version of Final Fantasy VII Remake for PS5, and there is a free next-gen upgrade available if you own the game digitally or physically. You can purchase a physical copy of the game right now for $30 at Amazon. Note that if you plan to take advantage of this deal, you will need to own a PS5 with a disc drive to claim your free PS5 copy.
Although the game will be free on PlayStation Plus beginning March 2nd, Sony confirmed that the PS Plus version will not be eligible to receive a free upgrade. So, you’ll either need to buy the next-gen version, which starts at $70, or buy the PS4 version, the latter of which I think is the better deal.
While on the topic of next-gen, if you are in the market for a new TV that takes advantage of next-gen, LG’s CX OLED line is one of the best options at the moment. Right now, the 65-inch model is on sale at a couple of places, most notably Newegg, where you can buy it for $1,997 and also receive a free $200 Newegg gift card. The TV is also on sale at Amazon for $1,950 (when you apply a coupon), but it does not come with a $200 gift card.
Last November, AMD released its new line of desktop CPUs. The Ryzen 5000 line includes the first chips from the company that carry its next-gen Zen 3 architecture. Like most highly anticipated gadgets released at the tail end of 2020, these processors at first were a bit difficult to find. But, if you are looking to buy the midrange $449 Ryzen 7 5800X, it’s available now at Antonline, B&H Photo, and Best Buy.
Lastly, Amazon is currently running a promotion where you can save $40 when you purchase two eligible Surface accessories. Some items eligible for the promotion include the Surface Pen and the Surface Arc mouse, a nice pairing if you’re picking up a new Surface device at the same time.
PS5 storage upgrades reportedly coming this summer – GamesIndustry.biz
Sony will allow PlayStation 5 owners to expand the internal storage of their next-generation console later this year.
That’s according to sources close to the matter talking to Bloomberg, who say a summer firmware update will add support for extra storage drives.
The PS5’s current internal storage is a 825GB solid state drive (SSD) that offers around 667GB for storing games, apps and media.
Some players have been frustrated with this limit, since many titles can take up around 40GB each and some AAA games — such as the Call of Duty series — take up over 100GB.
Earlier this week, GamesIndustry.biz sister site Eurogamer reported that a 17GB update for Call of Duty: Warzone required PS5 users to clear 100GB of space before it could be downloaded.
The PS4 allows users to plug in external hard drives via USB, but the PS5’s custom architecture makes this less practical.
The firmware update will allow PS5 users to attach new drives, although they will need to take off the console’s plastic cover to do so.
The firmware update will also reportedly increase speeds for the console’s cooling fan to prevent overheating.
A Sony spokesperson told Bloomberg: “As previously announced, we are working to enable M.2 SSD storage expansion for PlayStation 5. The timing has not been announced and details will be shared later.”
