About RMEC

RMEC (Resource Mining & Exploration Conference) is a unique virtual investor conference. The goal is to expose new investors, as well as our global network of retail and institutional investors, to vetted Exploration & Mining opportunities. The number of companies is limited, and the content is curated with investor time and interest being paramount. While not exhaustive by design, the RMEC aims to present potential investments to new and seasoned resource investors by presenting highlights for further research.

Each participating company hosts a live presentation followed by a Q&A period within approximately a 40-minute slot. The goal is to help investors learn about the junior companies that are shaping the future of the Global Resource Sector within a responsive and pressure free environment.

RMEC will present up to six junior exploration and near-term producing companies, as they seek to discover the next world-class mines. Investors can get more details about RMEC at

Lucero Exploration Program Summary and Update

Element79 is also pleased to provide a summary of its most recent channel sampling on the Company's flagship property, Lucero, Peru. A total of 455 samples, representing more than a metric ton of mineralization and wall rock, underwent comprehensive analysis, revealing significant exploration potential. Notably, 115 samples returned substantial values, with gold (Au) ranging from 1.0 g/t to 98.1 g/t, silver (Ag) ranging from 0.7 g/t to 3,026 g/t, lead (Pb) up to 2.0%, and zinc (Zn) up to 3.5%, showcasing the strong mineral potential of the Lucero project.

Among these, 17 samples exhibited gold values surpassing 10g/t, with 8 samples exceeding 20 g/t, and 51 samples boasting silver values exceeding 100 g/t Ag. Of particular significance are 15 high-grade samples with values ranging from 12.65g/t to an impressive 98.1g/t of Au, and remarkable silver values of 62.1 g/t to 3,026 g/t and up to 3.24% Zn, reaffirming the project's exceptional potential for high-grade mineralization.

Ongoing Progress in Chachas Community

With its focus on growing its relationships with the communities it works in, the Element79 Gold Corp team along with its NGO partner UMA, continue to work monthly in the greater Chachas region, sharing, listening, educating and helping residents and leaders, working between the seven different hamlets that make up the greater community.  As previously announced, with the incoming of the new Mayor at the start of 2024, the community itself works to complete updates to its own underlying Charter, a foundational process that is required before further contracts such as those for the Company’s long-term surface rights access, and formalization agreements with Lomas Doradas (the local artisanal mining association) that the Company has provided, can be finalized.  The Chachas community formally meets at the end of every month to work through its affairs. Current guidance from the community is that it anticipates the ratification of the community Charter to be complete no later than the end of July, 2024.  Further updates will be provided as they are received on a biweekly basis.
