VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 21, 2012) - F.D.G. Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FDG) (the "Company") announces that it has received and filed on SEDAR a NI 43-101 compliant report documenting the resources on the Topacio property from NEW ERA Engineering Corporation, Randy Clarkson, P.Eng. author:
- Inferred Mineral Resource of 2,716,176 tonnes grading 3.90 g/t gold, containing 340,345 ounces of gold.
- Mineral resources are at shallow depth, within 150 metres from surface.
- 124,000 ounces gold amenable to surface extraction.
- Potential to add ounces quickly with short holes under mineralized trenches.
- Resources quantified in only 7 of 25 known Auriferous veins.
- Mineralization is open to depth and along strike on all veins.
The reported resource differs marginally from the resource reported by the company on October 2, 2012 (2,702,984 tonnes grading 3.97 g/t gold containing 344,664 ounces gold) to account for resources depleted by the artisanal mining operations since 2009 and a minor arithmetic discrepancy discovered during the audit.
William W. Dunn, P.Eng. has been appointed to co-ordinate the ongoing mine permitting process in Nicaragua which was started in August. Mr. Dunn has had previous experience in mine permitting as the Mine Manager and lead proponent in permitting Capstone Mining Corp.'s Minto Mine in the Yukon.
