The Tlamino project

An inferred mineral resource update containing approximately 680,000 oz AuEq in 7.1 Mt grading 3.0 g/t AuEq at a cut-off grade of 0.7 g/t AuEq has been announced for the prospect Barje as part of a preliminary economic assessment (“PEAS”) on January 26, 2021. The highlights of the PEA can be summarized as follows:

  • Based on simple surface mining methods and the production of a flotation concentrate via conventional processing techniques, the pre-tax NPV of the Project, at an 8% discount rate, is 101 M USD, its IRR of 49% and its operating margin rate of 61%.

  • A gold price of US$1,500/oz and a silver price of US$16.50/oz were used in the study. At an approximate gold spot price of US$1,800/oz, the project’s after-tax NPV, at an 8% discount rate, is US$139m and its IRR is 69%.

The Tlamino project covers an area of ​​approximately 200 km2 in southern Serbia and is held by Medgold under two exploration licenses. Outcropping mineralization was first observed at Barje Prospect by Yugoslav state agencies in the 1950s and 1960s when a short gallery was opened but no drilling was carried out. The prospect was subsequently held by private and public companies between approximately 2005 and 2012, during which time limited drilling failed to intersect significant mineralization.

Medgold carried out mapping, surface sampling and geophysical (PI) work, followed by diamond drilling on the Barje prospect in 2018 and 2019, all fully funded by Fortuna, which successfully intersected gold mineralization in a shallow body of hydrothermal breccia beneath weathered shale (as reported on March 21, 2019). The inferred mineral resource of the Barje prospect extends from surface to a depth of approximately 110 m in the form of a gently sloping zone over an area of ​​approximately 600 mx 350 m. The actual thickness of the mineralization generally varies between 10m and 40m.
