May 12, 2014
TORONTO, May 12, 2014 /CNW/ -
The Company has previously disclosed its intention to exploit the reported measured and indicated resource of 128.6 thousand ounces of gold for Tau through underground mining. It commenced the project in the fourth quarter of 2013 and has now completed the forced portal entry at the bottom of the existing Tau pit, installation of the entire infrastructure required, appointment of an underground contractor and the development work required to reach ore.
An image of the entrance at Tau Underground is available at the following link:http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/gg0512photo1.pdf.
The Company has put together a mine plan based on the reported resource to mine approximately 85,000 ounces of gold over the next three and a half years. A detailed mine plan has been produced and the mining method used will be long hole open stoping. To view a graphical presentation of the ore body and the mine design, please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/gg0512fig1.pdf.
It is expected that once underground we will start a comprehensive exploration programme to confirm that the mineralisation continues at depth and expand the existing mine plan.
"In addition the fact that we have completed this project within 6 months and from our own operating cash-flows is a testament to the experienced management team that we have put in place."
