Geologix: New Preliminary Assessment Increases Tepal Project
Geologix Explorations Inc. (TSE:GIX) reports positive results from the Tepal project’s updated NI 43-101 Preliminary Assessment Study
The press release is quoted as saying:
The new study is based on the recently released resource estimate announced by the Company in its news release dated March 16, 2011, which includes all project drilling data from the Tepal North, South, and Tizate zones up to December 2010.
Geologix’s President and CEO, Dunham Craig says:
“We are very pleased with the updated PA, as it validates and quantifies the significance of the resource expansion work accomplished by the Company in 2010. In the six months since the previous PA was announced, Geologix has substantially increased the scale of the project’s economics and has extended the mine life from 9 years to 18.1 years without significantly impacting the project’s capital costs. These increased numbers have a positive impact on the mine plan, total gold and copper production, NPV, and other overall project economics. These results also give important guidance for the recently commenced pre-feasibility study, as well as ongoing resource expansion and target delineation programs throughout the project area. In completing our Tepal pre-feasibility, the Company intends to incorporate its 2011 exploration results, resize the operation to a higher production level, and optimize the project’s NPV.”
