PR Newswire

  • Final technical report shows an increase of 6,049 ounces in the Indicated category and 183 ounces in the Inferred category, which totals 1,752,100 tonnes at 1.85 g/t Au for 104,100 ounces of gold in the Indicated category and 74,000 tonnes at 2.96 g/t Au for 7,100 ounces in the Inferred category.
  • Monarques Gold combined Measured and Indicated resources now stand at over 3.15 million ounces of gold (see table 1 at the end of press release).

MONTREAL, Aug. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - MONARQUES GOLD CORPORATION ("Monarques" or the "Corporation") (TSX-V:MQR) (OTCMKTS:MRQRF) (FRANKFURT:MR7) is pleased to announce that it has filed on SEDAR a National Instrument 43-101 technical report for its Swanson gold project. Monarques published a press release on June 20, 2018 (see press release). Following the process of writing the technical report and validation, the following changes were made to the resource table (see Table 1): an increase of 6,049 ounces in the Indicated category and 183 ounces in the Inferred category. The report is also available on Monarques' website (see technical report).

Notes to Accompany Mineral Resource Table:

(1)

These mineral resources are not mineral reserves as they do not have demonstrated economic viability.

(2)

The mineral resource estimate follows 2014 CIM definitions and guidelines for mineral resources.

(3)

Results are presented in situ and undiluted and considered to have reasonable prospects for economic extraction.

(4)

The estimation encompasses four zones with a minimum true thickness of 2.5 m using the grade of the adjacent material when assayed or a value of zero when not assayed.

(5)

High-grade capping of 30 g/t Au (4 g/t Au for the dilution envelope) was applied to assay grades prior to compositing grade for interpolation using an Ordinary Kriging interpolation method based on 1.5 m composite and block size of 3 m x 3 m x 3 m, with bulk density values applied by lithology (g/cm3): I2 = 2.78; I4O, V3, V4 = 2.90, and OVB = 1.5.

(6)

The estimate is reported for potential scenario combining open pit and underground at cut-off grades of 0.8 g/t Au (open pit) and 2.7 g/t Au (underground). The cut-off grades were calculated using a gold price of USD1,296/oz, a CAD:USD exchange rate of 1.28, and the following parameters (CAD): (a) Open pit scenario: mining cost $4.94/t; processing cost $27.00/t; G&A $4.00/t, pit slope of 50° during Whittle optimization; (b) Underground scenario (CAD): mining cost $90.00/t; processing cost $27.00/t; G&A $10.00/t. The cut-off grades should be re-evaluated in light of future prevailing market conditions (metal prices, exchange rate, mining cost, etc.) 

(7)

The number of metric tons was rounded to the nearest hundred and the metal contents are presented in troy ounces (tonne x grade / 31.10348).

(8)

InnovExplo is not aware of any known environmental, permitting, legal, title-related, taxation, socio-political or marketing issues, or any other relevant issue not reported in this Technical Report that could materially affect the mineral resource estimate.
