Program Highlights:

  • Drilling within 150 meters of surface assessing near-surface mineralization within the two-kilometer extended LONG Bars zone of the potential 5.5-kilometer long, east-west-trending mineralized structure
  • Testing continuity of mineralized structures from surface
  • Assaying for gold, silver, cobalt, nickel and copper


Three surface-outcropping, mineralized structures have been defined. The drill program will be under the supervision of GoldMinds Geoservices technical team who were on site in early August to identify and spot the drill holes.

Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. An Inferred Mineral Resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to a Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource and must not be converted to a Mineral Reserve. It is reasonably expected that the majority of Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources with continued exploration.
+ Open pit mineral resources are reported at a cut-off grade of 0.4 g/t Au within a conceptual pit shell. Cut-off grades are based on a gold price of US$1,300 per ounce, a foreign exchange rate of US$0.76 , and a gold recovery of 95%.

The Company is in possession of a mining permit required to commence the initial mining phase, known as the "Rolling Start", which allows the company to mine up to 550 tonnes per day. Additional information is available at www.granadagoldmine.com.
