Download the NI 43-101 Technical Report (PDF)

The 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate benefits from 557,030 m of core drilling in 1,644 drill holes. The 2020 Mineral Resource model covers a strike length of approximately 1,200 m and depths down to 1,403 m Level and remains open along strike and at depth. The 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate excludes the crown pillar and depleted resources from test trial mining.

Inferred 2,073 6.97 464,000

Effective date for this Mineral Resource is December 6, 2019
Mineral Resource Estimate uses a break-even economic cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t Au based on assumptions of a gold price of US$1,400 per ounce, an exchange rate of C$/US$ 1.35, mining cash costs of C$88.14/t, processing costs of C$32.70/t, G&A of C$7.82/t, sustaining capital C$39.25/t, refining, transport and royalty costs of C$59.43/oz, and average gold recoverability of 95%

The 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate should be read in conjunction with the tables and figures included in the body and presented at the end of the news release dated January 7, 2020. There is no certainty that the Measured and Indicated mineral resource estimates will be converted to the Proven and Probable mineral reserve categories and there is no certainty that the 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate will be realized. There is no guarantee that Inferred mineral resource estimates can be converted to Indicated or Measured mineral resources, or that Indicated or Measured mineral resource estimates will be converted to mineral reserves. Mineral resource estimates that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing, or other relevant risks, uncertainties and other factors, as more particularly described in the Cautionary Statements at the end of the January 7, 2020 news release.
