Marlin Gold Mining, the gold and silver mining company with operations in Sinaloa, Mexico and Arizona, has announced that the company has stacked just under 60,000 ounces of gold since September 2016 – 18,431 coming from December alone.

In the announcement, the company also stated that Gold shipments in December reached a new monthly record at 9,924 ounces, with a similar amount expected to be shipped this January.

What do we know about Marlin Gold Mining?

Marlin Gold Mining is a publicly traded gold and silver mining company with properties located in Sinaloa, Mexico and Arizona.

In Mexico, Marlin Gold has built three open-pit heap leach mines since 2011. The three mines include the Santa Elena, El Gallo and La Trinidad.

The La Trinidad Gold Mine, wholly owned by Marlin Gold Mining, is located in Sinaloa Mexico. The mine was previously mined by Eldorado Gold Corp from 1996-98. Following a preliminary economic assessment, negotiating surface rights and receiving environmental permits, Marlin completed construction and declared commercial production at La Trinidad in November 2014.

Marlin Gold owns the Commonwealth Silver and Gold District, which hosts a development project called the “Commonwealth Project” located in the Pearce mining district in South-eastern Arizona.

Production at the Commonwealth Mine began as far back as 1985, with commercial scale mining ending in 1920’s before small scale mining continued through 1942. It is said that during this time, the Commonwealth Mine produced around 12 million ounces of silver and 138,000 ounces of gold.

Such a number makes it Arizona’s second largest history primary silver producer.

Marlin Gold acquired the project in May 2015.

The company also has a number of streaming agreements. An example of such, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Sailfish Royalty Corp, is the San-Albino Gold stream. Located close to Managua, the capital of Nicaragua.

Marlin Gold is helmed by a Mr. Akiba Leisman, Executive Chairman of the Board and Interim CEO. Mr Leisman is also a consultant for Wexford Capital LP, where he oversees the precious metal public and private equity portfolios, which includes the investment in Marlin Gold Mining. He has been a Senior Analyst at Red Kit Capital Management for the Mine Finance Funds, and has an MBA from New York University, and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.

How do we get the world to net-zero faster?

Emitwise’s founders, Mauro Cozzi, Eduardo Gómez and Ben Peddie, approached a network of more than 100 of the world's largest enterprises and asked their CEOs, CFOs, and sustainability managers the big question: How do we get the world to net-zero faster? The challenge many shared was the lack of timely and accurate emissions data to enable strategic decisions. Companies often relied on annual audits of their carbon footprint for carbon accounting purposes. However, static yearly results were outdated upon publishing.

Emitwise saves companies an average of 260 working days a year by automating their scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions data. With the added benefits of clean audit trails and auto-populated accounting reports in line with GHG Protocol, all at the click of a button. Their easy to use solution enables businesses to quickly identify the carbon hotspots to target, and the precise real-time data empowers teams to remain agile and respond effectively, making achieving those goals possible.

Unique AI Technology

Emitwise’s unique AI technology empowers businesses to automatically measure, report and reduce their carbon footprint across their operations and supply chain, future-proofing companies for a zero-carbon world. It is the only solution that enables companies to fully automate their carbon accounting across all business units and suppliers, therefore liberating them from the drudgery of collecting and processing emissions data.

By using artificial intelligence to precisely measure emissions in real-time, businesses can identify and tackle carbon hotspots swiftly, enabling them to devise a trackable roadmap to net-zero carbon. At the same time, accurate audit trails and auto-populated annual reports ensure that companies comply with international reporting requirements, and align businesses with global climate targets to mitigate risk across their operations and supply chain. 

The Oren Marketplace

Environmental management, social license to operate, safety, renewable energy to lower emissions and operational efficiency for mining can be supported by a range of digital solutions enabling dynamic operations. To address these issues, Shell and IBM joined forces to create the Oren Marketplace – the first B2B solutions platform for the mining sector. 

With the adoption of many of the digital solutions offered through Oren, mining companies can adapt in real-time to risks or adjust plans ahead of a problem occurring. The goal is a shift towards proactive management as the optimal outcome for all stakeholders – community, shareholders, and employees.

Emitwise was founded with the goal of helping industries across all sectors reduce their carbon footprint. Similarly, Shell aims to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, or sooner, in step with society and its customers. And Oren is focused on offering innovative products and services that can help mining companies track and reduce their emissions. 

“Oren is the starting point for how we help our mining customers to de-carbonise,” explains Carol Chen, Global Lubricants Marketing, Vice President, Shell. “It’s our ambition to work with sectors like mining to help them find their own pathway to net-zero emissions through collaboration. The Oren marketplace offers a great opportunity for collaboration between the miners and technology companies that are joining this digital marketplace.” 

Web Summit

Emitwise will be showcasing its vision for a net-zero future live from Lisbon at this year’s Web Summit. Bringing together the people and companies redefining the global tech industry, the online event welcomes 100,000+ attendees from around the world to hear from more than 800 speakers and view offerings from 2,500 startups covering a vast range of topics from Data Science and Climate Change to AI and Machine Learning.
