TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 2, 2017) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Era Resources Inc. ("Era" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ERX) is pleased to announce that, further to the upgraded resource announced on December 19, 2016, it has filed a technical report detailing the resource at its Yandera Project.
Qualified Person and Technical Information
The mineral resources were estimated using current CIM standards, definitions and guidelines and applying NI 43-101. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing, or other relevant issues. The quantity and grade of reported Inferred resources in this estimation are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define these Inferred resources as Indicated or Measured mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in upgrading them to an Indicated or Measured mineral resource category.
The Yandera Mineral Resource Statement was prepared by J.B. Pennington, MSc., C.P.G., and Justin Smith, BSc., P.E., SME-RM, both of SRK Consulting (U.S.), Inc., Reno, Nevada, and provides a classification of resources in accordance with CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves: Definitions and Guidelines, November 27, 2010. Mr. Pennington and Mr. Smith are Qualified Persons, and are independent of the Company for purposes of NI 43-101 and have approved the contents of this news release.
For further information on the Yandera Project, please refer to the technical report titled 'NI 43-101 Technical Report Updated Resource Estimate, Yandera Copper Project, Papua New Guinea,' dated February 1, 2017, available on the Company's website and on SEDAR.
