Quinchia Gold Project

Located in central west Colombia, 100km south of Medellin, in the department of Risaralda, and 70km south of the Company’s Andes Gold Project, the 10,500ha Quinchia Gold Project is part of the Mid-Cauca Gold belt which hosts many multi-million ounce discoveries. The Quinchia Gold Project has a JORC compliant Reserve of 0.46Moz within a JORC compliant Resource of 0.84Moz at Miraflores, 1.3Moz at Tesorito and 0.46Moz Inferred Resource at Dosquebradas for a total Quinchia Resource of 2.6Moz. In addition to these gold deposits the 10,500ha Quinchia Gold Project contains significant exploration targets including Chuscal and Ceibal.

Miraflores Breccia Pipe

  • Connected to underlying porphyry?
  • Broad high grade intercepts including 161m @ 3.23g/t Au from 183m in QM-DH-34
  • Miraflores DFS (2017) underpins core value. DFS demonstrated NPV US$89M at US$1,400/oz gold price with modest CapEx (US$72M).
  • Reserve - 4.32Mt @ 3.29g/t Au for 457koz gold
  • Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources of 9.27Mt @ 2.82g/t Au and 2.77g/t Ag for 840koz gold & 826koz silver (includes Reserve)

First released on 14 March 2017 (Resource) and 27 Nov 2017 (Reserve). Los Cerros confirms in the subsequent public report that all the material assumptions underpinning the Miraflores project, or the forecast financial information derived from the Miraflores project, in the initial public report referred to in rule 5.16 or rule 5.17 (as the case may be) continue to apply and have not materially changed. See Resources and Reserves page for further detail.
