阿维诺 Announces Receipt of Amended Operating Permit for the 布拉洛恩金矿 and Proposed Drill Program

阿维诺 Silver &Gold Mines Ltd.(ASM:TSX.V,ASM:NYSE American,GV6:FSE,“Avino” or “the Company”) 欣然宣布,位于不列颠哥伦比亚省金桥附近的Bralorne金矿已获得《采矿法》许可证M207的批准许可证修正案,该许可证取代了1996年以来Avlor购买了Bralorne以来经营的每天100吨许可证。 2014年的项目。

Readers are cautioned that the following discussion concerning proposed operations and any decision by 阿维诺 to place the 布拉洛恩金矿 into production are not based on a feasibility study or mineral 保留s demonstrating economic and technical viability, and as a result there is increased uncertainty and there are multiple technical and economic risks of failure, which are associated with any production decision. These risks, among others, include areas that would be analyzed in more detail in a feasibility study, such as applying economic analyses to 资源s and 保留s, more detailed metallurgy, and a number of specialized studies in areas such as mining and recovery methods, market analysis, and environmental and community impacts.

2015年11月,公司委托外部顾问设计了新的填海计划,随后向卑诗省能源部矿业部申请了许可证修订&石油资源。修订和开垦计划由原住民和环境部在转介过程中进行了审查。转介过程是通过卑诗省矿业部以及林业,土地和自然资源运营的正式过程。

修改后的许可证是针对每天100吨的吞吐能力,公司预计将进一步扩大以提高未来的运营效率。由于简化了政府程序,并且满足了进一步的要求,公司预计将更容易,更快捷地过渡到经修改的许可证,以便将来进行扩展。

许可证修正案提供了全面负责的许可证,将为公司提供扩展考虑中的后续步骤所需的报告和监控。此外,许可证修正案包括一个边界,该边界内有先前宣布的拟议钻探计划的区域,请参阅我们于2017年7月10日发布的新闻稿 //www.gxxljypx.com/site/assets/files/4947/2017-07-10_nr.pdf. With this drill program, 公司 intends to update and increase the confidence in the 资源.

“领取这份经修改的许可证是公司重要的一步’s strategic plan to bring the Bralone Gold Mine back into operation, and with this modern 100 tonne per day permit, we are now very close to receiving the deemed authorization required to commence the proposed drilling. The proposed drill programs comprise both surface and underground, and have been designed to better define 资源s near surface and above and below the 800 metre level.

公司’的高级管理人员和现场人员与矿产能源部密切合作&石油资源部和环境部,并会见了总督察和副总督察,多次讨论了环境和许可问题。我们要感谢所有成功获得此许可证的人,包括原住民和当地社区的支持。”

自2014年收购Bralorne以来,公司已完成对制定运营计划的潜在方案的审查。许多顾问从事环境,许可证,矿山设计,工厂设计和升级以及基础设施设计和升级。最初的分阶段计划是启动小吨位运营,然后进行扩建。但是,在工作期间,我们的现场顾问发现了现有800层隧道中的地面和安全问题。确定800级需要进行修复工作,并聘请了顾问来审查和制定维修计划。考虑到拟议的维修工作可能会限制矿井的吞吐量,现在正在评估在最初阶段包括的800层新隧道的建设。顾问’s recommendations were to construct a new tunnel on the 800 level due to the age and limiting size of the original main access tunnel, which also has issues with ground conditions. The future construction of a new 800 tunnel should allow earlier access to the 资源s below the 800 level. 请参阅我们于2017年7月10日发布的新闻 这里.

地面和地下钻探程序

With the receipt of the M207 permit, a surface and underground drill program is now planned for the winter, and 公司 may now submit its application for the authorization to drill. The surface drill program will be designed to better define the 资源s near surface. The surface program has been designed by Bralorne’s independent consultant with the assistance of Bralorne geologists. This program will also include two geotechnical holes to determine the geotechnical characteristics of the proposed new tunnel on the 800 level. An underground drill program will be carried out to better define the 资源s above and below the 800 level. This program is currently being designed. It will require some excavation of drill crosscuts underground. Both programs will also be aimed at increasing the confidence of, and updating the 资源s.

在努力获得M207运营许可证的同时,自2014年收购Bralorne金矿以来,公司很高兴实现以下关键里程碑:

  • 将原始水处理厂的规模扩大一倍(“WTP”)由于新生期间的矿井水径流显着增加,从每秒3.5升到2015年的每秒7升;
  • Constructed a new state of the art 污水处理厂 in 2016 capable of treating 35 litres per second;
  • 2015年将TSF大坝提高了2.4米;
  • 为尾矿储存设施在水坝的脚趾处建造了一个支柱(“TSF”),并于2016年9月获得使用TSF的批准;
  • 作为《采矿许可证》修正案的一部分,2015年提交了《临时封闭和填海计划》,包括原住民在内的所有支持者均对其进行了广泛的讨论和反馈,并对其进行了审查,现已获得批准;
  • An independent consulting engineering firm was engaged in 2015 to prepare a conceptual mine plan followed by a few different operating scenarios culminating in the current plan to develop mineral 资源s including a different mining method, narrow vein long hole sub level retreat, where the walls and ore are competent, which is a safer, more productive mining method than the shrinkage and cut and fill methods used in the past;
  • 在2016年10月20日的NI-43-101报告中更新了资源,将其纳入拟议的采矿计划;
  • 2016年,一家独立的咨询工程公司聘请了工厂和地面基础设施的审查,以确定升级这些设施的最佳方法,并且目前已制定计划,该计划已被公司接受。该计划包括建立一个新的破碎厂,并用更大的设备替换工厂的设备;
  • 在2016年和2017年,布拉洛恩,北岛学院,卑诗省政府和原住民完成了两个教育队列,为圣路易斯的24名成员提供基础采矿培训’at’imc原住民在Lillooet,另一支队伍即将开始;和
