Latest RC drilling results such as the 20m of 5.8gpt (including a metre of 96.3gpt) mentioned above certainly support the view that the continuous and high-grade shallow (open-pittable) mineralisation at the M1 North prospect – and ditto for M1 South at the southern end of the same trend – changes the former modest heap-leach project plan to produce about 70,000oz a year for three years at cash costs around US$430/oz. How much the plan changes should be known soon enough.
