Auryx Gold’s  CEO, Tim Searcy stated:
“We are very pleased with the results of the PEA. It demonstrates that the Otjikoto gold deposit is a very robust project, which benefits significantly from the local infrastructure. Road, rail, and water are accessed at site and grid power is available very close by, all of which positively impact the initial CAPEX estimate. Furthermore, a number of additional opportunities exist to improve on these results including new zones that have been discovered but not yet included into the mine model and the potential for saleable by-product concentrates of sulfides and iron-oxides.”
