ONTARIO – Toronto-based Noront Resources recently filed an updated 43-101 report for the recently acquired Black Thor, Black Label and Big Daddy chromite deposits in the Ring of Fire. Black Thor and Black Label are 100% owned by Noront while Big Daddy is a joint venture between Noront (70%) and Canada Chrome Mining Corp. (30%). (Canada Chrome is a subsidiary of KWG Resources, also of Toronto.)

The Black Thor deposit contains a measured and indicated resource of 137.7 million tonnes grading 31.5% Cr2O3 plus an inferred resource of 26.8 million tonnes at 29.3%. (All estimates were made using a 20% Cr2O3 cut-off.)

Measured and indicated resources at Black Label are 5.4 million tonnes at 25.3% Cr2O3, and the inferred resource is 900,000 tonnes at 22.8%.

At Big Daddy there are 29.1 measured and indicated tonnes averaging 31.7% Cr2O3 in the deposit and 3.4 million inferred tonnes at 28.1%.

Noront says it has also filed a restated 2014 annual management discussion and analysis in which it upgrades the Black Thor estimate to “current” from “historic”.
