The Segilola Gold Projectmineral resource and reserves are based on the following:
Mineral Resources: Mr I Taylor (MAusIMM, CP) is responsible for this Mineral Resource Statement and an "independent qualified person" as such item is defined in NI 43-101 CIM (2014) definition standards were followed for Mineral Resource Reporting. Open Pit Mineral Resources are reported at a cut-off grade of 0.30 g/t Au. A designed pit wireframe was used to constrain the resources. Mineral Resources are estimated using an average long term gold price of
US$1,800per ounce. Underground Mineral Resources are estimated at a cut-off grade of 2.5 g/t Au, beneath the open pit constraint and inside the high-grade wireframe lode models. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Totals may not add exactly due to rounding. This Mineral Resource estimate is dated " March 2021", based on Thor's press release dated March 29, 2021.
Mineral Reserves: Mr M Burger (EIZ, SAIMM, SACNASP) is responsible for this Mineral Reserve Statement and an "independent qualified person" as such item is defined in NI 43-101 CIM (2014) definitions were followed for Mineral Reserves. Open Pit Mineral Reserves are estimated at a cut-off grade of 0.3 g/t Au and are based on Indicated Resources only. Mineral Reserves are estimated using an average medium-term gold price of
US$1,650per ounce. Mining dilution of 12% and mining recovery of 97% were applied. There are no known legal, political, environmental other risks that could materially affect the potential development of the mineral resource or mineral reserve. Numbers may not add due to rounding. This Mineral Reserve estimate is dated " March 2021", based on Thor's press release dated March 29, 2021.
