Total reserves from the August 2009 Prefeasibility, Page 104:


298,000 tonnes @ 9.05 grams/tonne = 86,709 t oz

At the current process recovery rate of 79.8% = 69,194 t oz


Why on earth would a major be interested in such a minuscule reserve? I understand that further drilling has increased tonnage, but this is still small potatoes in the world of mining.
