Vancouver, B.C., January 04, 2017, Serengeti Resources Inc. (SIR: TSX-V) reports that it has filed on SEDAR an independent NI 43-101 technical report outlining the updated resource estimate for its Kwanika property located in north central British Columbia. The results of this update were originally announced on November 14, 2016 (See NR 2016-13)
"We are pleased to have completed this updated technical report which represents the latest milestone in the development of the Kwanika Property" stated Serengeti President and CEO, David Moore. "The results of this updated mineral resources estimate are now being incorporated into a revised Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") due for completion within the first quarter".
* Pit constrained mineral resources are reported in relation to a conceptual Whittle pit shell and underground resources are reported within the area for potential underground development. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. All figures are rounded to reflect the relative accuracy of the estimate. All composites have been capped where appropriate.
** Pit constrained mineral resources are reported at a copper equivalent cut-off of 0.13% and underground resources are reported at 0.27%. The cut-offs are based on prices of US$3.00 per pound of copper, US$1,300 per ounce of gold, US$20 per ounce of silver, US$9.00 per lb of molybdenum and assumed recoveries of 89% for copper, 70% for gold, 75% for silver, and 60% for molybdenum.
The 43-101 report is now available to the public on SEDAR and can be accessed through www.sedar.com.
All of the work outlined above is being funded by Daewoo Minerals Canada, in a deal finalized earlier this year (See NR-2016-03), whereby Daewoo will earn a 5% project interest by paying Serengeti $400,000 (paid) and spending $800,000 on the project in the first year. Daewoo may earn an additional 30% interest in the project by electing on or before March 6, 2017, to spend an additional $7 million over the following two years for aggregate expenditures of $8.2 million to earn a 35% project interest. Serengeti remains as project operator and is entitled to charge a 10% operator fee on expenditures beyond the initial $1.2 million. Serengeti is entitled to an NSR royalty if its project interest is diluted below 50% and also retains the right to enter into precious metal streaming transactions subject to certain off-take rights to Daewoo.
