Production Highlights for the month of November 2017 as compared to the Company’s preliminary economic assessment “plan” (see description below) are:
• Placed 8,059 ounces of gold on the pad (23 percent above plan);
• Produced 3,491 ounces of gold and 1,825 ounces of silver, 20 percent higher than October;
• Mined 730,900 tons of ore (21 percent above plan);
• Crushed 728,900 tons of ore (21 percent above plan);
• Maintained a grade of 0.011 opt of gold including over liner material; and
• Achieved a low strip ratio of 0.45 for the month (74 percent below plan).
“Production reaching 3,500 ounces represents a key milestone in the continuing upward production trend. At this point mining operations now begin to contribute positive cash flows to the Company,” stated William Howald, the Company’s President and CEO.
Howald continued, “Three of the four new 785 haulage trucks are working with the fourth to be operational in early December. Over liner material has been laid over an extent that maximizes leach cell size and allows for a primary leach cycle of 45 days before stacking the second lift. Over liner will be completed in late December. The positive trend is continuing in Q4.”
“The October and now November production results confirm the Florida Canyon mine is ramping up to commercial production in Q1 2018,” he added.
“Plan” refers to the Company’s preliminary economic assessment effective March 16, 2016 and dated January 27, 2017 titled “Amended Technical Report – Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Florida Canyon Mine, Pershing County, Nevada” available on the Company’s website and under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com.
