This preliminary assessment is based on the following assumptions:
• A good mill design will have a good gold recovery and a low operating cost.
• Unless in extremely good working condition, Gold Bullion will buy new milling equipment
• The open pit & underground mine will be able to feed the mill at a rate of 7,500 tpd, 7 days per week
• No major setbacks will be encountered with the federal and provincial environmental agencies, trade unions and/or indigenous people
• Electrical power of sufficient capacity is readily available
• Approximately 5 hectares of a more or less flat site will have to be prepared for the mill and its ancillary infrastructure
• It will be possible to dispose of the tailings both acid and neutral without jeopardizing the surrounding environment
• It is anticipated that the gold recovery will be in the 95% range while the grade of sulphur in the neutral tailings will be less than 0.5%
• The liberation size is typically less than 75 μm
• No attempt was made for the recovery of other minerals.
Gold Bullion has given a mandate to SGS Canada Inc. to prepare a Preliminary Feasibility Study (PFS) for a Rolling Start in accordance with the following objectives;
to provide grade validation for processing around 475 tonnes per day for a three year period
to begin pouring gold at the earliest opportunity and to prepare the site for a below the horizon mill with a zero discharge configuration.
The PFS is also to include specific recommendations demonstrating that Gold Bullion is a good corporate citizen to ensure continued strengthening of positive relations in the surrounding community.
