Advance United Holdings Inc. (AUHI) Announces New Board of Directors Appointments with a Different Approach to Junior Gold Mining Failure – Don’t

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – June 21, 2021) – Advance United Holdings Inc. (CSE: AUHI) (the “Company”, “Advance United” or “Au Holdings”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Irwin, Independent Corporate Secretary, Daniele Spethmann, Independent Director, and Vishal Gupta, Independent Director.

Forty-year mining industry veteran, Jim Atkinson, CEO and Director of Au Holdings says, “Au Holdings is a different kind of junior mining company involved exclusively in the acquisition and advancement of gold properties in Canada, with no intent to bring them into production or to mine them ourselves, instead qualifying them for mid-tier mining, production, streaming, and/or off-take partners.”

Au Holdings, as the name suggests – gold holdings – works with gold property owners to advance united as opposed to working alone. The goal is to create a large and comprehensive portfolio of past producing and highly promising gold mining and exploration properties. Identifying gold properties with underdeveloped and undervalued potential – properties with significant historical work and previous drill programs that were uneconomic at the time but have proven economic value at today’s price of gold hovering at $2,000 a troy ounce.

The Company funds the development of re-working the old data to document quantifiable resources and reserves using current standards and modern technology, thus increasing the value and commercializing them for profit and sale.

The cost of re-working old data with modern tech is significantly more cost effective and allows Advance United to deliver the highest returns to shareholders, in the shortest possible time frame. A portfolio of properties diversifies the investor’s risk.

The company adheres to a highly disciplined approach, and a strict set of criteria and historic work protocols in its selection process of properties and off-take partners. Leveraging this experience, network, and knowledge, and by using modern exploration techniques, Advance United taps its industry contacts and arbitrage the value of previous work programs in today’s economy and gold’s all-time highs.

Jim Atkinson says, “Au Holding’s incoming board members, whom I have known and worked with for decades, share this vision. Together, we intend to develop a portfolio of properties that will provide our shareholders a unique and diversified investment opportunity in arguably the most stable gold mining jurisdiction in the world, Canada.”
