The Canadian dollar strengthened against its U.S. counterpart on Tuesday as oil rose and the greenback broadly declined, with the loonie rebounding from an earlier six-day low. The U.S. dollar fell against a basket of major currencies after data showed inflation making strong gains in March, though the rise was not expected to alter the Federal Reserve's commitment to keeping interest rates at rock-bottom levels for years to come. "It is more about greenback weakness as opposed to loonie strength," said Erik Nelson, a currency strategist at Wells Fargo.

The top executives of more than three dozen Michigan-based companies, including General Motors Co and Ford Motor Co, on Tuesday issued a joint statement opposing Republican-backed legislation to restrict voting. The move appeared to be pre-emptive, after Georgia companies such as Coca-Cola Co and Delta Air Lines Inc endured public backlash for failing to take a stronger stance before that state enacted a raft of voting limits last month. "Government must avoid actions that reduce participation in elections - particularly among historically disenfranchised communities," the statement, which bore the names of 37 top executives, read in part.

TORONTO, April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mandalay Resources Corporation ("Mandalay" or the "Company") (TSX: MND, OTCQB: MNDJF) announced today its production and sales results for the first quarter of 2021. First Quarter 2021 Production Highlights: Consolidated saleable gold equivalent production and sales of 28,676 and 28,218 ounces respectively;Consolidated 23,857 ounces of gold sold, highest quarterly amount since Q1 2018;15,458 ounces of saleable gold equivalent production at Costerfield, highest quarterly production result at Costerfield since Q2 2016; andCommenced trial processing of mineralized waste dump material at Cerro Bayo, producing 43,699 ounces of silver and 724 ounces of gold. Dominic Duffy, President and CEO of Mandalay, commented: “Mandalay Resources continued to build off the strong momentum generated in 2020 and delivered its sixth consecutive quarter of excellent operational results, further demonstrating the sustainability of the Company’s operational turnaround. Consolidated saleable production of 28,676 ounces of gold equivalent was the Company’s highest since Q4 2017 and marked a third consecutive quarter of increased production. Mandalay’s production profile is stable and improving, and this solid start to the year puts us firmly on track to meet our 2021 production guidance.” Mr. Duffy continued, “A large part of the strong quarter was due to the continued high-quality ore from Costerfield, which averaged grades of 11.0 g/t gold and 3.9% antimony processed in the quarter. In Q1 2021, we saw a slight dip in grades compared to Q4 2020 – mainly related to the site purposefully feeding lower grade material into the plant while dealing with a lack of processing reagents which impacted recoveries. The reagent sourcing issue has been resolved and we expect to be feeding higher grade into the plant going forward. The 15,458 ounces of gold equivalent produced this quarter was the site’s best quarterly result since Q2 2016. Given the homogenous grade profile of the ore body, we expect at least the same levels of performance from Costerfield for the remaining quarters of 2021. "Stemming from COVID-19 related shipment delays, the commissioning of the cavitation tube flotation columns at Costerfield has fallen behind its Q1 2021 schedule. The project is now in its final stages of testing and we can expect a pass through of a trial batch in the upcoming weeks. Once operational, we anticipate an approximate 2-3% improvement in gold recoveries.” Mr. Duffy continued, “At Björkdal, Q1 2021 production of 11,855 saleable gold ounces was in line with the previous quarter as we mined similar areas. The slight drop in production was related to inclement weather conditions in January and February which adversely affected plant processing rates. Over the first two months of the year the site averaged 3,390 tonnes per day processing. With improving weather conditions in March, we saw an uplift in processing rates to 3,520 tonnes per day. This resulted in an excellent March with an approximate 4,500 gold ounces produced – Björkdal’s best monthly result since July 2019. For the remainder of the year, we will continue with the ramp up of underground mining tonnage to 1.1 million tonnes and maximizing the delivery of higher-margin ore to the mill.” Mr. Duffy added, “Not included in the Company’s 2021 production guidance was the trial processing of mineralized waste dump material at Cerro Bayo, which started on February 20. Average grades of the material processed were 32.5 g/t silver and 0.5 g/t gold, which produced 43,699 ounces of silver and 724 ounces of gold. This production is in line with our expectations and we will continue with this processing in the foreseeable future. The first concentrate sales are scheduled to occur in April.” Mr. Duffy concluded, “With this strong start to the year, Mandalay is excited to be growing from a solid, stable operational base and are looking forward to establishing a long-standing sustainable track record of performance.” Saleable Production for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2021: In the first quarter of 2021, the Company produced a total of 23,661 ounces of gold, 832 tonnes of antimony and 43,699 ounces of silver representing a total of 28,676 ounces of gold equivalent, versus 21,370 ounces of gold and 1,108 tonnes of antimony, representing a total of 25,677 ounces of gold equivalent.Production at Björkdal was 11,855 ounces of gold in the first quarter of 2021 as compared to 10,750 ounces of gold in the first quarter of 2020.Production at Costerfield was 11,082 ounces of gold and 832 tonnes of antimony in the first quarter of 2021 versus 10,620 ounces gold and 1,108 tonnes antimony in the first quarter of 2020. Production at Cerro Bayo was 724 ounces of gold and 43,699 ounces of silver in the first quarter of 2021 versus no production in the first quarter of 2020.

A look at what’s happening in the Champions League on Wednesday with the second legs of the quarterfinals: BORUSSIA DORTMUND VS. MANCHESTER CITY (1-2) City is seeking to reach the semifinals for only the second time in its history and the first time under Pep Guardiola. The Premier League leader has no fresh injury concerns, with a number of key players — like Kevin De Bruyne and Ruben Dias — rested in the Premier League over the weekend. Dortmund will be without the injured Jadon Sancho, while forward Marco Reus and defender Mats Hummels are injury doubts. A semifinal would be a triumph for a team that is not on course to qualify for next season's Champions League through its finish in the Bundesliga and is led by an interim coach in Edin Terzic. All eyes will be on star striker Erling Haaland, who is a transfer target for many of Europe's biggest clubs, reportedly including City. However, he hasn't scored in his last three games for Dortmund, or in three for Norway before that. LIVERPOOL VS. REAL MADRID (1-3) Already facing a two-goal deficit against the form team in Spain, Liverpool is under even more pressure because the team might need to win the Champions League to qualify for the competition next season. Liverpool is in sixth place in the Premier League in a disappointing title defence. The passionate Anfield crowd is regarded as a so-called “12th man” for the Reds, helping them mount stunning comebacks in European competitions over the years, but that benefit will not be there because the stadium will be empty due to the pandemic. Madrid is depleted by injuries and coach Zinedine Zidane hasn't said who will replace the injured Lucas Vázquez as right back. In central defence, he will likely stick with Éder Militão and Nacho Fernández to substitute Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane, the regular starters who tested positive for the coronavirus. Ramos was already set to miss the game because of a muscle injury. Eden Hazard also won't play for Madrid. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
