Bluestone Resources was created in 2017 with the purchase of the Cerro Blanco gold & Mita Geothermal projects. Cerro Blanco is an advanced stage gold project located in southeastern Guatemala. A feasibility study was completed in 2019 that highlighted very robust economics with an after-tax IRR of 34% and a payback of 2.1 years. The average annual production is projected to be 146,000 ounces per year over the first three years of production with all-in sustaining costs of $579/oz. Bluestone is currently advancing project financing discussions with the goal of initiating construction in early 2020.
The Mita Geothermal project is a renewable energy project licensed for up to 50 megawatts of power. Over US$60M has been spent on it that includes 19 geothermal wells and an internal Feasibility Study that returned positive economics.

Management has taken a strategic approach to consolidate a district-scale land package over the past two years that has positioned Fireweed as a notable Canadian zinc explorer and developer. With one of the world's largest undeveloped zinc resources not currently held by a major company.
In 2018, the company had a very successful definition focused 2018 field program centered on the advanced-stage Tom and Jason deposits. In 2019, Fireweed plans to shift its 2019 exploration efforts to Macmillan Pass’ regional potential. To test the extent of the districts ultimate scale and the upside could be significant.
Genesis Metals is focused on advancing the Chevrier Gold deposit in Chibougamau Quebec. The Chibougamau mining district has seen nearly 7 million ounces of historical gold production and is subject of recent new gold discoveries in the region. The Chevrier Project is located 35 km south of Chibougamau and is accessed year-round by forestry road.
In February 2019, the company issued an updated 43-101 resource for the Chevrier deposit. Management believes that by having developed a new geological model at the Chevrier deposits, it will be able to unlock significant upside potential. Additionally, the team will be identifying opportunities for new high-grade discoveries on the 146 square kilometer property package.
Genesis has an experienced management team that is credited with previous discoveries and has notable success raising capital and monetizing assets.
