Skeena Resources publishes positive profitability study

Skeena Resources recently announced the first preliminary economic valuation for the Eskay Creek gold-silver project in British Columbia's Golden Triangle.

Highlights are:

  • High-grade open pit mine with an average of 3.23 g/t Au, 78 g/t Ag (4.17 g/t Aueq.) (diluted)
  • After-tax NPV5% of CA$638 million and 51% IRR at US$1,325 per ounce of gold and US$16 per ounce of silver, respectively
  • Amortization period after taxes of only 1.2 years
  • Pre-production capital expenditures (CAPEX) of CA$ 303 million
  • Present value after taxes to CAPEX ratio of 2.1:1
  • Average annual production 236,000 ounces Au, 5,812,000 ounces Ag (306,000 ounces Aueq.) on lifetime Mine
  • LOM All-in Sustaining Costs (AISC) of 983 CA$/ounce Aueq. output
  • LOM production cost of 949 CA$/ounce Aueq.

Eskay Creek was a remarkable discovery that became an extraordinary underground mine in 1994 and produced until 2008. This PEA shows that Eskay Creek still has a bright future ahead of it, revitalized as a gold and silver mine with the added option of underground mining. The project has the potential to produce an average of 306,000 gold equivalent ounces per year with a diluted mill feed grade of 4.17 grams per ton gold equivalent.

Uranium Energy discovers brand new mineralization

Uranium Energy recently announced that it has recently completed a drilling campaign to advance its Burke Hollow In-situ Recovery uranium project toward uranium recovery. During the campaign, additional required monitoring wells were installed for production area authorization 1. During the campaign, 57 exploration and delineation test holes were drilled. The discovery of additional mineralization led to the expansion of the production area of the previously identified trends and the discovery of a new trend.

Endeavour Silver reports quarterly results

Endeavour Silver has recently released its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019. The Company recorded a net loss of CA$6.8 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared to a net loss of CA$5.5 million in the third quarter of 2018 primarily due to lower revenues partially offset by lower cost of goods sold. Sales decreased by 24% due to lower production, partially offset by higher realized metal prices. Operating cash flow before taxes for mines decreased 31% to CA$ 6.6 million due to lower production, while operating cash flow before changes in working capital decreased to CA$ 2.1 million. Production costs increased 30% to CA$11.51 per ounce of silver (excluding gold credits) and total AISC increased 33% to CA$21.53 per ounce of silver (excluding gold credits).

The higher all-in costs are primarily attributable to the purchase of new equipment, which is intended to drastically reduce the costs of future production.

Endeavour Silver Closes El Cubo

Endeavour Silver also announced that a recent review of reserves and resources has revealed that they are now depleted, and the Company will close the El Cubo underground mine in Guanajuato. The mining operation will end on November 30, 2019, with closure costs estimated at approximately $3.5-4.0 million, primarily in the fourth quarter of 2019. Management will explore alternatives for the continued use of the processing facility and related plant components. Some components could be moved to other development projects, such as Terronera and Parral, to reduce future investment costs. The mining equipment will be shipped to Endeavour's other sites, primarily Bolanitos, where it will contribute to increasing mine yield and utilisation of processing capacity.

Aurania Resources Provides Update on Drilling at Yawi

Aurania Resources recently reported that the first drilling of exploration drilling for epithermal gold and silver on "Yawi Target A" at the Lost Cities - Cutucu project in southeastern Ecuador was completed. The first hole on Target A, YW-001, reached a depth of 533.40 metres, approximately 460 metres vertically below the hole's starting point. The samples from YW-001 will be sent to the laboratory and the results will be announced as soon as they are available. The drilling rig was mobilized to the second platform and the second drilling on Target A is in progress. The first drill hole on Target A intersected small veins along its trajectory at various depths, showing band structures typical of epithermal gold-silver systems. Some of the veins show that the YW-001 hole, which was tilted south at an angle of 60 degrees to the horizontal, was drilled parallel to a component of the vein system. The YW-002 well will therefore be drilled to the north to penetrate the vein system.
