Baru Gold Corp (“Baru” or the “Company”) is pleased to update stakeholders on the progress made by Martin Jati Lawyers on the land acquisition process previously announced August 22, 2020.
The land acquisition survey has allowed the Baru team to identify the area of interest around the Sangihe gold project based on recommendations and analysis from Baru COO Garry Kielenstyn and Chief Geologist Frank Rocca in Indonesia.
The land acquisition team of Martin Jati will now commence with the land acquisition of the Phase One Mining Area with the aim of finalizing the results from the survey in Q1 2021 and to pay for the land packages so construction can commence in the next month.
Baru Gold’s CEO Terry Filbert comments, “I am incredibly pleased with the progress that the Baru Gold team made as they continue to push forward in the acquisition of the mining pit, waste dump, access roads, and heap leach pad operations area for our Phase One mining land package. Administratively, this has not been easy with the second wave of COVID-19 sweeping through Indonesia. I commend the team for their focus and dedication and thank all parties who worked with our team for being diligent on our filings and for being creative in facilitating virtual meetings during the current pandemic situation in Indonesia.”
ABOUT SANGIHE GOLD PROJECT
The Sangihe gold-silver project is located on the island of Sangihe off the northern coast of Sulawesi and has an existing National Instrument 43-101 inferred mineral resource of 114,700 indicated and 105,000 inferred ounces of gold as reported in the Company's "Independent Technical Report on the Mineral Resource Estimates of the Binebase and Bawone Deposits, Sangihe Project, North Sulawesi, Indonesia" dated May 30, 2017. Only 10% of the gold bearing area has been explored. Readers are cautioned that mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The Company's 70-percent interest in the Sangihe-mineral-tenement contract of work ("CoW") is held through PT. Tambang Mas Sangihe (“TMS”). The remaining 30-percent interest in TMS is held by three Indonesian corporations. The term of the Sangihe CoW agreement is for 30 years upon commencement of the production phase of the project.
The Company intends to proceed to production without the benefit of first establishing mineral reserves supported by a feasibility study. The Company cautions readers that any production decision made by the Company will not be based on a NI 43-101 feasibility study of mineral reserves that demonstrates economic and technical viability and as such, there may be involved increased uncertainty and various technological and economic risks such as the interpretation of drill results; the geology, grade and continuity of mineral deposits; the possibility that future exploration, development or mining results will not be consistent with our expectations; commodity and currency price fluctuation; failure to obtain adequate financing; regulatory, recovery rates, refinery costs, and other relevant conversion factors, permitting and licensing risks; general market and mining exploration risks and production and economic risks related to design and engineering, manufacturing, technological processes and test procedures and the risk that the project’s output will not be salable at a price that will cover the project’s operating and maintenance costs.
