Endomines Ore Reserve and Resource Estimate update
Endomines is making a public announcement of its updated ore reserves and mineral resources estimates. The estimates have been prepared according to the 2012 Australasian Code for Reporting of Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves (Joint Ore Reserve Committee - JORC-code). The updates have been prepared by various authors (Geoconsulting Parkkinen Oy, Endomines - in house and others). The update represents the production situation as of December 31st 2013.
Tables and detailed results can be found in the enclosed pdf-document and on Endomines website.
Summary reports of the estimates will be made available on the company's web site in due course.
“The conditions for the underground operations at Pampalo mine have become more challenging as the mine has progressively been deepened. The most recent core drilling has, as an example, resulted in previously interpreted larger ore lenses to be broken up into smaller lenses. More rigorous planning parameters and geostatistical estimate methods applied have also resulted in changes to the grade and tonnage“, comments Markus Ekberg, CEO of Endomines AB.
A new resource and reserve estimate has been prepared for Hosko. Although the mineralogy of Hosko resource is challenging, the company believes that, despite the elevated arsenic content, the high grade parts of the Hosko deposit can be mined and blended with Pampalo and other satellite deposit ore sources.
Although no new resource estimate has been prepared for the Korvilansuo-Elinsuo-Muurinsuo-area the current results support our firm conviction that this area has a real potential for growing into a significant and successful gold project.
