GRANADA GOLD (TSX.V: GGM) FILES UPDATED 43-101 HIGH-GRADE MINERAL RESOURCE ESTIMATE. This update provides a High-Grade Mineral Resource Estimate of the Granada Gold Deposit using narrow, rich, vein modelling and both open pit and underground resources and revised pit optimization parameters which are based on the possibility of off-site custom milling ore rather than constructing and using an on-site mill.
The report concludes
There is an opportunity on the Project to extend known mineralization at depth and along strike on the Property.
The Authors consider that the Granada deposit contains a significant open pit and underground Mineral Resource that is associated with a well-defined gold mineralized trend and model. The current Mineral Resource Estimate Update has shown that the Deposit can likely be mined by conventional open pit and underground mining methods with a scenario of off-site custom milling rather than constructing and using an on-site mill. Deeper drilling recently completed also demonstrates that the Property has the potential for a significant underground resource.
The Authors consider the Property to have significant potential for delineation of additional Mineral Resources and that further exploration is warranted. Granada Gold's intentions are to continue to drill the Deposit in 2021 and plan to direct their exploration efforts towards resource growth, with a focus on extending the limits of known mineralization along strike and at depth, as well as infill drill the existing deposit in order to convert portions of Inferred mineral resources into Indicated or Measured.
Given the prospective nature of the Property, it is the Author's opinion that the Property merits further exploration and that a proposed plan for further work is justified. A proposed work program by SGS will help advance the Deposit towards a pre-development stage and will provide key inputs required to evaluate the economic viability of a mining project (open pit and underground) at a pre-feasibility study level.
SGS is recommending Granada Gold conduct further exploration, subject to funding and any other matters which may cause the proposed exploration program to be altered in the normal course of its business activities or alterations which may affect the program as a result of exploration activities themselves. For 2021, a total of 45,000 m of drilling is proposed to continue to focus on expanding and extending mineral resources, upgrading existing Inferred resources as well as exploring the Deposit at depth.
