– Cannon is on consolidated mining leases granted with the open pit mine operated until 2017 producing 55koz at 2.98g / t Au with a gold recovery of 91%

– An estimate of mineral resources and ore reserves generated by previous owners included a portal into the existing open pit mine and decline development to access the deposit from underground

– Detailed review of all geological, engineering and metallurgical data now completed and an independent mineral resource estimate compiled for Cannon and located at:
o 232kt grading 4.29 g / t Au for 32,070 oz at a lower cut-off grade of 1.0 g / t Au

– It is important to note that more than 89% of ounces are in the indicated resource category

– Significant potential for resource growth while submerged and along strike over the Cannon Shear Zone with further drilling planned from both surface and underground drill locations

“The project has the potential to provide high grade ore early in the production profile with significant growth potential down dip and along the Cannon Shear Zone and we look forward to completing the underground mining studies and update ore reserves in the current December quarter. ”

“The generation of targets for resource growth and new discoveries along the Cannon Shear Zone and in the Glandore and Cowarna Project areas is also well advanced with surface drilling scheduled for the March 2022 quarter with depth extensions to be tested from underground during the mining cycle. ”

The Cannon high grade underground gold project was acquired as part of the recently completed acquisition of the Bulong South, Glandore and Cowarna projects for $ 5 million in cash. The project is located 10 km east by existing roads to the proposed Boorara mill site, and includes a historic open pit mine operated in 2017.
