Tanzanian Gold Corporation Provides Update On Buckreef Project

TORONTO, Nov. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tanzanian Gold Corporation’s, (TNX.TO) (NYSE American: TRX) (the “Company’s”) Board of Directors is pleased to provide shareholders with a simplified guide to the progress that the Buckreef Project has made since the Company acquired it. This guide is based on the 43-101 Standard of Reporting.

Regulators in Canada require that on any significant matter related to mining, listed companies must follow National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”).

Disclosures covered by NI 43-101 include news releases of mineral exploration results, reporting of resources and reserves, technical studies, various levels of feasibility studies, presentations, oral comments, and websites.

For a typical mining project the NI 43-101 Standard of Reporting recognizes several distinct stages of reporting as a project moves from exploration to production. These stages are:

  • Exploration
  • Preliminary Resources
  • Technical Studies
  • Resources and Reserves
  • Preliminary Economic Assessment
  • Pre-Feasibility Study
  • Final Feasibility Study
  • Environmental Impact Study
  • Construction and Operation Plan

Each of these stages has more rigorous requirements of underlying work that must be completed in order to improve the confidence that a project is viable under a broad range of assumptions. These are increasingly demanding, such as more drilling even as part of a Final Feasibility Study that can be costly and time consuming. For example, estimates of costs in a Final Feasibility Study can be only +10% to -10% and must be based on at least 3 vendor quotes.

Various authorities have stated that it takes at least 10 years for a mining project to move from exploration to completion of a Final Feasibility Study and Environmental Impact Study, both of which are generally required for government permits, financing and developing comprehensive construction plans.

The Company firmly believes that, as illustrated by this guide to NI 43-101, the Buckreef Project has made significant advances. In June 2018, the Company published a comprehensive Pre-Feasibility Study. The authors of this study concluded that the Buckreef Project “is likely to be technically and economically feasible”. Highlights of that study, which was done at a gold price of $1,300 per oz are: an after-tax US$ NPV discounted at 5% of $131 million; an IRR of 74%; a capital payback period of 4 years; and an average LOM cash cost of US$ 735 per oz.

The Buckreef Project is now one step away from a Final Feasibility Study.

Despite the attractive metrics arising from the Pre-Feasibility Study, the Company decided to see if the Buckreef Project can be made bigger and better; and to start to collect the technical data to move the project to the Final Feasibility Stage. To date, the Buckreef Project has;

  • Drilled over 10,000m using at times three drill machines operating 24 hours per day,

  • Developed a geology-resource model of the entire Buckreef Mineralized Zone using technologically advanced data-mine software that will be used for future resource and reserve estimates,

  • Initiated a comprehensive metallurgical review and test data based on a plant that is two times larger than the plant in the Pre-Feasibility Study, and

  • Initiated a rock stress test program to determine the possibility of mining underground below the pit bottom.

It is the Company’s intention to make a Conceptual Study that incorporates all the new drilling results from the 2019 drill program as well as the data arising from the metallurgical and rock stress tests. This Conceptual Study will most likely be based on a larger open pit than that in the Pre-Feasibility Study and an underground mine that can access resources below the pit bottom. This Study will assist the Company to determine the key parameters of a Final Feasibility Study of the Buckreef Project.

Mr. James Sinclair, Executive Chairman of the Company notes “Successful world class mines are not simply discovered”, and continues by stating “They are built through years of complex scientific work to the highest of industry standards. I am delighted with the progress that our team is making to move Buckreef to a Final Feasibility stage.”

Respectfully Submitted,

“James E. Sinclair”

James E. Sinclair
Executive Chairman

    Niger Jihadist Raid Shows Speed of Islamic State Expansion

    The killing of 71 soldiers in Niger, which had been spared the surge in major militant attacks that have destabilized Mali and Burkina Faso, shows that Islamic State is expanding at breakneck speed across West Africa. The raid on the Inates base, less than 200 kilometers (124 miles) from the capital, Niamey, is the deadliest-ever on Niger's army and follows a spate of attacks on military outposts in neighboring Mali that left more than 100 troops dead last month. It also came days before leaders of five West African nations were due to convene in France on Dec. 16 to discuss security and the French military deployment in the region as anti-French sentiment escalates.

    California governor rejects PG&E bankruptcy reorganization plan

    California Governor Gavin Newsom on Friday rejected a bankruptcy reorganization plan submitted by PG&E Corp, the state's largest investor-owned utility, saying its proposal fails to meet the requirements of a recently enacted wildfire law. The decision by Newsom, sent to PG&E in a letter, complicates the company's push to exit bankruptcy and provide billions of dollars to victims of devastating wildfires in 2017 and 2018 sparked by the utility's power lines. The embattled utility now has until Tuesday to further amend its plan to Newsom's satisfaction, but his criticism of the reorganization package as it was presented by PG&E a day earlier was sweeping.

    Here’s the formula for paying no federal income taxes on $100,000 a year

    The question of how much can we earn without paying federal income taxes is relatively easy to answer for most people. The standard deduction for a married couple is $24,400 in 2019 (if both are under 65 years old), and the top of the 0% capital-gains tax bracket is $78,750. With our daughter, we also qualify for the child tax credit ($2,000), so we could actually generate another $13,333 per year in dividends or capital gains, taxed at 15%.
