Dundee Precious Metals Announces Reserve and Resource Update for 2015

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 31, 2015) - Dundee Precious Metals Inc. (TSX:DPM)(TSX:DPM.WT.A) (the "Company" or "DPM") today announced its updated Mineral Reserve and Resource as of December 31, 2014.

On a consolidated basis, Proven and Probable Mineral Reserves decreased by 1.1 million tonnes of ore (-3.5%), 204,000 ounces of gold (-6.1%), 515,000 ounces of silver (-8.4%) and 57 million pounds of copper (-11.0%) from those at the end of 2013 (see Appendix). Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource tonnage is unchanged, containing a decrease of 181,000 ounces of gold (-3.7%), a decrease in contained copper of 57 million pounds (-7.0%), and an increase in contained silver of 1,647,000 ounces (+11.9%).

"The Kapan Mineral Resource reflects drilling completed over the past year, which has resulted in a significant increase. We are optimistic that we will continue to add to our Mineral Reserves and Resources at Chelopech. Chelopech has demonstrated a strong track record of replacing Mineral Reserves in previous years," says Rick Howes President and CEO.

A Mineral Resource is an inventory of mineralization that under realistically assumed and justifiable technical and economic conditions might become economically extractable, while a Mineral Reserve includes diluting materials and allowances for losses that are expected to occur when the material is mined.

Chelopech

While the operation replaced depleted tonnes in 2014 in the Mineral Reserve and Resource categories, this was partially offset by a revision in void model estimates completed by Chelopech survey crews during the year. This revision affected both, tonnes and grades, contributing to lower contained metals after depletion when compared to the previous year's Mineral Reserve and Resource estimates.

For the Mineral Reserves, the net result is a reduction of 1.1 million tonnes (-4.5%), 204,000 ounces of gold (-8.1%), 514,000 ounces of silver (-9.1%) and 57 million pounds of copper (-11.0%), compared with the 2013 Mineral Reserve estimate.

Compared to the previous Mineral Resource statement, tonnage in the Measured and Indicated categories has decreased by 1.5 million tonnes of ore (-5.1%), 287,000 ounces of gold (-7.7%), 670,000 ounces of silver (-7.8%) and 77 million pounds of copper (-9.8%).

Kapan

Compared to the previous Resource estimate, tonnage increased by 1.5 million tonnes (+49.3%) in the Indicated category and 1.9 million tonnes (+19.9%) in the Inferred category.

Also, metals in the Indicated category increased by 106,000 ounces of gold (+33.9%), 2.3 million ounces of silver (+47.8%), 20 million pounds of copper (+68.2%), and 81 million pounds of zinc (+68.4%).

Metals in the Inferred category increased by 71,000 ounces of gold (+8.2%), 4.0 million ounces of silver (+30.6%), 37 million pounds of copper (+40.6%), and 156 million pounds of zinc (+61.6%).

The increase in Indicated Mineral Resource tonnes is attributable to more material being at a higher confidence, which has resulted from further drilling and development. The increase in Inferred Mineral Resource tonnes is mainly attributable to more favourable technical-economic parameters used in the evaluation with regard to treatment terms of concentrates, the addition of new vein extensions, veins that were previously modelled using probability methods, and changes to the estimation methodology.

The changes in grade can largely be attributed to a change in estimation methodology, whereby the current Mineral Resource estimate initially estimates mineralization in the vein, with dilution being added as a secondary step rather than estimating combined vein and dilution as was done previously. The grade of zinc has increased due to the application of more realistic top cuts.

Krumovgrad

There is no update to the Mineral Reserve estimate for Krumovgrad in 2014. However, just over half a million tonnes of Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources were excluded after further review of the potential for economic extraction following the proposed mining of Mineral Reserves.

Change of Reporting of Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources

Going forward, DPM is adopting a new method for the reporting of Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources, which will now be reported exclusive of those Mineral Resources modified to produce the Mineral Reserves. The new method intends to more clearly present what potentially can be added to the life of each project/operation.

"It is intended that this new method of reporting of DPM's Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources will lead to greater clarity around the potential that exists to continue to extend the life of our existing properties," said Rick Howes, President and CEO.

  11. A Mineral Resource is an inventory of mineralization that under realistically assumed and justifiable technical and economic conditions might become economically extractable, while a Mineral Reserve includes diluting materials and allowances for losses that are expected to occur when the material is mined. Under the previous method, when Mineral Reserves are reported as part of Measured and Indicated Resources, these diluting materials and allowances are excluded from the estimate of Resources.

The new method applies when reporting both Mineral Reserves and Resources. As suggested in the May 10, 2014 Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum ("CIM") in its guidance for reporting section, a clarifying statement, such as "The Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources are additional to the Mineral Reserves" will replace "Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources are inclusive of Proven and Probable Mineral Reserves".

The sum of Mineral Reserves and Resources under the new method is not directly comparable to Mineral Resources (inclusive of those Mineral Resources modified to produce the Mineral Reserves) under the previous method. When converting from Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources to Mineral Reserves, a profitability test of USD 10/t is applied as opposed to USD 0/t, and other modifying factors, such as adjusting for mineral losses and dilution. Planned dilution for Chelopech comes primarily from the silica envelope and is mineralized.
