SASKATCHEWAN – Toronto-based GLR RESOURCES is considering various options to create a mine out of its Goldfields project including the old Box-Athona mine near Uranium City. The latest NI 43-101 report delivered by AMEC (Saskatoon) estimates resources for both bulk mining and selective mining.
Bulk mining using a cut-off of 0.0 g/t Au could be based on 13.25 million tonnes of measured and indicated resources at 1.44 g/t Au. There would be another inferred resource of 96,000 tonnes at 1.48 g/t Au. Together the figures point toward 618,000 contained ounces.
Resources available for selective mining are dependent on the use of various cut-off grades between 0.0 and 2.5 g/t Au. At 1.5 g/t, the deposit contains measured and indicated resources of 3.13 million tonnes grading 3.35 g/t Au plus inferred resources of 988,000 tonnes grading 3.27 g/t Au or 440,000 oz.
Historical resources at the Box-Athona mine using a 0.0-g/t cut-off grade estimated there are 1.13 million oz of gold left in the ground. The mine was operated from 1939 to 1942 by Cominco and yielded 64,000 oz of gold.
