The mineral resource estimate assumes solely potential underground mining. The estimate was prepared by Olivier Vadnais-Leblanc, P.Geo., Carl Pelletier, P.Geo. and Eric Lecomte, P.Eng., of InnovExplo Inc., all three qualified and independent persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The estimate was prepared using all available information, including the results from the latest drilling programs. The effective date of the mineral resource estimate is June 17, 2022.
“This is excellent news for Monarch as it enables us to reach another milestone in terms of resources backed by NI 43-101 reports for each of our four gold projects,” said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer of Monarch. “Now that we have confirmed Croinor’s mineral resources more rigorously and with a higher degree of certainty, we will focus on finding the right partner to develop this promising project, which covers over 150 km2 of land and remains open laterally and at depth.”
