The results form part of Osisko’s 800,000-metre drill program in and around the Windfall and Lynx deposits. Detailed results from 18 of the recent drill holes are available in the news release of Nov. 28, 2017, posted at

Osisko has prepared a preliminary economic assessment for Windfall that examines a project that would produce 106,200 oz. of gold annually for 7.8 years. The pre-production capex would be $240.6 million, followed by $53.5 million in sustaining costs. The project has a post-tax net present value (5% discount) of $135.2 million and internal rate of return of 17.2%. Payback of the original investment would take 3.9 years.
