Invicta Gold Development Project – 100% owned, the Company's flagship asset is an advanced stage gold-copper polymetallic underground deposit located approximately 120 kilometres north of Lima. Over $15 million of capital has been spent by previous owners on development and infrastructure at Invicta, and management expects to commence potential production in the second half of 2018 by using third-party mining contractors and utilizing the existing adit and underground workings. The Invicta project is fully permitted and community agreements are in place.
A recent PEA and updated resource estimate on the project outline a 350 tpd underground mining operation. Utilizing existing infrastructure, the project has very limited initial capital as the area contemplated by the PEA is close to the existing workings. As well, there is room for growth as only a portion of the resources are being contemplated as part of the initial 6 year mine life.
Indicated Resources of 558koz (2,999kt @ 5.78 g/t Au-Eq.)
Inferred Resource of 98koz (577kt @5.29 g/t Au-Eq.)
See “Invicta/Resources”, for full breakdown of resources including notes and sensitivity analysis.
