Glen Eagle Resources Inc. (Montreal, Quebec, August 23, 2017; TSX VENTURE: GER) (“Glen Eagle” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that Cobra Oro, a wholly owned Honduran subsidiary of Glen Eagle, has produced 223 ounces of gold and 1305 ounces of silver, representing approximately $CDN 380 000 in dore bars between July 1 and August 15, 2017. The cash flow after consideration of All-In Sustaining Cost (“AISC”) was approximately $CDN 150 000 for the period. These results represents an important turnaround from Q2 2017 where the Company sold $285 000 in dore bars due to aggressive upgrading works at its CIL gold plant as previously reported in a News Release dated June 15, 2017.
Over the period, Cobra Oro processed 749 tonnes, grading 12.09 grams gold per ton based on 39 working days with throughput slated to improve considerably in the near future as the construction work to integrate the new ball mill into the plant is in progress and can be viewed in the upper part of the following images. The recoveries for the period have averaged 76%, slightly impaired by the high silver content in the mineral. In gold equivalent terms, the overall recovery was 81% when the amount of silver recovered from operations is factored in the equation.
The Company has estimated that the new ball mill could have a processing capacity of 150-200 tonnes per day, representing an additional 50 tonnes from what was previously expected. The Company is actively negotiating to secure future supplies to feed the potential increase in throughput.
