阿维诺 和 圣贡萨洛矿s

2016年生产亮点

  • 银当量产量-2,679,334盎司*
  • 白银产量-1,612,060盎司
  • 黄金产量-7,119盎司
  • 铜产量-4,206,585磅

AgEq是根据金属价格分别为Ag(银)17.10盎司,Au(金)1,248美元和2.21美元的金属计算得出的 lb Cu.

2016年运营亮点

  • Commercial production was declared at the 阿维诺 Mine on April 1, 2016
  • A new power line to the mine site was completed 和 is now fully functional, providing sufficient energy to power our existing operations, as well as the future oxide tailings 资源 operation 和 mill expansion
  • 新尾矿存储设施的建设已开始
  • An updated NI 43-101 资源 estimate was completed for the 阿维诺 和 圣贡萨洛矿s as well as for the Oxide Tailings Resource

During the year, capital expenditures at 阿维诺 totaled USD$7.4 million for the continuation of exploration, new 和 refurbished equipment, commencement of the new tailings storage facility (TSF), infrastructure 和 sustaining capital.

“我们对2016年在港式五张和San Gonzalo矿山取得的生产和运营成就感到非常满意。港式五张和San Gonzalo的未来稳定的现金流量以及最近购买的交易融资的收益将为公司提供灵活的资金来进行资本和勘探项目,同时保持稳健的财务状况。在预算范围内提供更大的灵活性是我们为新设备提供资金的能力,以及三星投资回报的零罚金延期支付。预计2017年将再创丰收年,计划包括扩建工厂和矿山以将加工厂的吞吐能力提高约70%,推进氧化物尾矿资源项目的进展,继续建设以及考虑有关尾矿存储的新计划,以及Bralorne的三阶段扩展计划。这些重要计划在2017年的资本支出成本估计为1,630万美元,所有这些都将帮助公司发展并继续创造股东价值。”

总裁David Wolfinand Chief Executive Officer
 

 

In 2017, capital expenditures at 阿维诺 和 San Gonzalo are estimated to total USD$12.2 million, as a result of the following capital projects: mill expansion, planned exploration, 和 continued refurbishment 和 replacement of mobile equipment.

公司’2017年的估计资本支出包括:(百万美元)

扩建工厂以添加第4回路$7.1
矿山设备$2.5
尾矿储存设施$1.7
计划中的探索$0.9
估计总数$12.2


Users of this 前瞻性信息 are cautioned that actual results may vary materially from the estimates disclosed. Readers are cautioned against placing undue reliance on these estimates.

In 2017, capital expenditures at 阿维诺 和 San Gonzalo will include a significant investment of USD$7.1 million for mill expansion to increase throughput capacity to 2,500 tonnes per day “TPD”。 2017年1月开始增加4号电路,这与Mill 3号电路完全相同,大约需要一年的时间才能完成。这种扩展将进一步发展并保持稳固的生产前景。

此外,我们正在不断进行测试以提高应付款,并致力于通过全自动化优化工厂和工厂,以提高效率并潜在地提高回收率。

此外,尽管我们将利用可用的二手设备,但仍将预算250万美元用于购置新的采矿设备和扩大车队,并且与供应商建立长期业务关系,据估计,预算支出中的很大一部分将用于可能得到资助。

估计将进一步投资170万美元,用于继续建设新的尾矿存储设施,从而使我们能够推进氧化物尾矿资源项目。我们还评估了浆糊的增稠,该浆糊的增稠将用于回填旧采场和大型露天矿,这将增加尾矿的大量存储能力并同时进行填海。

We are also investing approximately USD$0.9 million for additional exploration of the 阿维诺 Vein system between the San Luis 和 Elena Tolosa (current area of production) workings, where the 阿维诺 vein remains open at depth. Our exploration drilling program, which commenced in September, 2016, has thus far been comprised of 18 holes totalling 2,955 metres, with positive results from the first 8 holes which were released in December, with the results from the remaining ten holes still pending. The drill results support the continuation of the extensive 阿维诺 vein system.

This new area is close to surface 和 accessible from the existing 阿维诺 Mine underground workings. The area was identified as a target of interest as it may have been overlooked in the past, given that on surface 和 at shallow depths, the 阿维诺 Vein system splits into hanging wall 和 foot wall structures.

布拉诺金矿

“自2014年收购Bralorne金矿以来,我们一直致力于将这个历史悠久的金矿投入生产并致力于实现这一目标的步骤的长期承诺。我们致力于这个项目以及它所在的社区。”

总裁David Wolfin& CEO 阿维诺 Silver & Gold Mines Ltd.


2016年亮点

The updated NI 43-101 资源 estimate for the property marked a major milestone 和 validated the development strategy in reopening the mine.

扩展计划

三相方法

公司’未来获利生产的战略发展计划涉及一个为期三年的三年扩展计划,该计划为通向Bralorne提供了有利的途径’具有可控制的资本支出和有序方法的增长潜力。前述内容有望在保持较低执行风险的同时充分利用现有基础架构,并提供灵活性,使所有阶段的生产停工时间极少或没有。

公司’我们的目标是在第一阶段以100 TPD的价格完工后重新开放该矿,预计费用为410万美元。通过以下重点介绍的改进,我们认为该加工厂的产能可能超过100 TPD。

该公司聘请了独立的工程专业人士来协助制定项目执行计划,以实现100 TPD的生产启动并最终扩展到300 TPD。独立采矿工程师还参与制定了长期采矿计划,该计划包括在可能的情况下更改为窄脉长孔开采,以取代历史悠久的劳动密集型收缩开采方法。连同他们的意见,公司已为Bralorne项目开发建立了一个三阶段且严格的方法。

推进第一阶段

工程建设

第一阶段的准备工作将立即开始,将包括以下工作:

  • 拆除现有的粗,细矿仓
  • 使用较大的一级和二级破碎设备简化破碎回路,有可能将来扩展到500 TPD
  • 建设新的粉矿仓
  • 拆除退役设备(破碎设备,球磨机基座和基座)
  • 用新的一排浮子电池交换
  • 新尾矿抽水系统的建设
  • 现有电气系统的升级
  • 建立一个新的化验室

第二阶段目标(2018-2019)

  • 更大的球磨机安装
  • 大型球磨机的电气升级和新的电气进给
  • 搬迁和升级现有的分类电路
  • 升级第一阶段MCC(移动破碎电路)安装

第三阶段目标(2018-2019)

  • 现有浮选回路,浓缩液过滤回路,试剂回路,炼油厂的升级,
  • 新过程控制系统的安装
  • 包括营地在内的地面基础设施的升级
  • 在300 TPD时开始处理

公司’的长期计划是达到500 TPD。

Historically, the Bralorne camp consisted of a number of separate mines with combined capacity of more than 500 TPD at a head grade of approximately 0.5 oz/ton. 阿维诺 now owns all of the old mines of any significance. The recent updated NI-43-101 资源 is shown in the following table. Please also note that the updated NI 43-101 资源 is available on SEDAR 和 on our website at //www.gxxljypx.com/site/assets/files/4882/2016_bralorne_tech_report_final.pdf.

Mineral 资源s which are not mineral 保留s do not have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral 资源s may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing, or other relevant issues. The quantity 和 grade of reported 推断 资源s in this estimation are uncertain in nature 和 there has been insufficient exploration to define these 推断 资源s as an 已指示 or 实测 mineral 资源 和 it is uncertain if further exploration will result in upgrading them to the 已指示 or 实测 mineral 资源 category. Figures in the table may not add to the totals shown due to rounding. The mineral 资源 estimate is classified in accordance with the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy 和 Petroleum’s “CIM定义标准-矿产资源和矿产储量”通过引用并入国家仪器43-101“矿产项目披露标准”。矿产资源的品位标准为每吨金0.1盎司。

Under National Instrument 43-101, 公司 is required to disclose that it has not based its production decisions on NI 43- 101 保留 estimates, preliminary economic assessments, or feasibility studies, 和 historically projects without such reports have increased uncertainty 和 risk of economic viability. 公司’公司是否按照管理层的预期水平运营矿山,扩大矿山规模,做出其他与生产有关的决定或以其他方式进行采矿和加工业务的决定,主要基于公司内部的非公开数据以及基于勘探的报告公司以及公司聘用的地质学家和工程师进行的采矿和采矿工作
公司’s current plan is based on a 资源 head grade of approximately 0.25 oz/ton. Once Bralorne is operating again, 公司 will carry out exploration underground 和 on surface aimed at adding to the current 资源 和 discovering further high grade zones similar to what was mined in the past.

初等教育,培训参与

2016年,与北岛学院和圣路易斯市’at’imc Government Services, 阿维诺 completed a four-month underground mining training educational cohort for 12 members of the St’at’imc社区。所有12名学生均已从该计划中毕业,并获得了一些行业认证门票。该计划主要由省政府资助,在Lillooet进行了为期三个月的课堂教学,随后在Bralorne金矿进行了为期两周的培训。要观看有关培训计划的视频,请单击此处 //vimeo.com/172272150 .

A second similar program commenced in November, 2016, 和 will include a state-of-the-art simulator from Sandvik for advanced training on underground mining equipment. This program will conclude in February, 2017; 阿维诺 is eager to hire graduates from the programs once the mine re-opens.

阿维诺 expects to release the 2016 year-end financial results in early March2017, 和 will hold a conference call to discuss the results. Details of the call, including times 和 contact numbers, will be announced closer to the date.

合格人员

阿维诺’s projects are under the supervision of Chris Sampson, P.Eng, 阿维诺 Consultant 和 Jasman Yee P.Eng, 阿维诺 Director, who are both qualified persons within the context of National Instrument 43-101. Both have reviewed 和 approved the technical data in this news release.
