Alexandria Files WIM Technical Report on SEDAR02 Jul 2015
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(July 2, 2015) – Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(OTC PINK:ALXDF)(FRANKFURT:A9D) is pleased to announce that it has filed on SEDAR the technical report on the updated Mineral Resource estimate at its WIM property in Snow Lake, Manitoba, in compliance with National Instrument 43-101. The updated resource estimate was presented in an Alexandria press release dated May 20, 2015.
As previously released, the estimate resulted in a significant increase in resources by updating it with current metals prices. Indicated Resources show a 40% increase in tonnage and 22% increase in metal content over the last estimate in 2008, now totaling 3.90 million tonnes grading 1.71 % copper, 1.57 g/t gold, 6.81 g/t silver, and 0.26% zinc.
Likewise, Inferred Resources increased 64% in tonnage and 44% in metal content, now standing at 0.732 million tonnes grading 1.03 % copper, 1.76 g/t gold, 4.65 g/t silver, and 0.37% zinc.
|Summary of the May 20, 2015 WIM Resources|
|Grade||Total Metal Content|
For Notes to Table, see press release May 20, 2015.
The report provides guidance on future work, with particular reference to: 1) drilling down dip and along strike in order to increase the size of the deposit; 2) more detailed drilling in the gold-rich zone in order to better understand this portion of the deposit; and 3) completion of metallurgical work to better understand the accessibility of the ore minerals.
The WIM deposit is a volcanogenic massive sulfide deposit averaging 7.0 m true thickness, and extends from surface to approximately 700 meters below surface and 600 meters along strike. It was discovered by Hudson Bay Exploration and Development Corporation by drilling a ground EM geophysical anomaly in 1962. Murgor Resources Inc. produced the first NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate in 2008. Alexandria now holds 100% of the property as a result of acquiring Murgor Resources in March 2015.
For this estimate, a Copper Equivalent percent (“CuEq %”) has been calculated, which incorporates the values and recoveries of the metals (copper, gold, zinc and silver) in the resource (see below). From this cutoff of 1.3 % CuEq and 0.6% CuEq were determined for the underground and pit constrained resources, respectively.
This Press Release has been reviewed and approved by Greg Greenough P.Geo. and Paul Palmer P.Eng., both of Golder, and Qualified Persons for the WIM Mineral Resource update and NI 43-101 Technical Report. Please note that Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated eventual economic viability.
