GOLD: Golden Predator pours gold from 3 Aces bulk sample

YUKON – Vancouver’s Golden Predator Mining says a 744-oz. gold doré bar has been poured from material collected from the bulk sample at its 3 Aces gold project. The first doré bar produced and sold in 2016 contained 85% gold and 8% silver.

The recent doré gold came from material collected from the No.1 table concentrate. Golden Predator has also collected 86.4 kg of No.2 concentrate and over 1.0 tonne of No.3 concentrate. These two remaining concentrates will be processed by Simi Metals in Chicago.
