November 2016 pre-production results
Pre-production at the Nampala mine is still progressing well. During the month of November 2016, the mine processed approximately 110,000 tonnes of ore, a daily average of 3,666 tonnes, up 8% from the previous month. The Company is pleased to announce that on December 20, 2016, they completed a 72kg gold sale, representing approximately 2,300 ounces.
Laboratory of chemical analysis (fire assay) on site
The Company is pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement with the world-renowned SGS firm to set up a chemical analysis (fire assay) laboratory at the Nampala site in Mali.
The Company recently met with a recognized firm specializing in drilling on mining sites. The meeting was fruitful and Robex plans to start a major drilling campaign in the coming weeks on their Mininko (Nampala mine) and Kamasso permits, which are less than 15km from the Nampala mine. The full plan of the campaign and the name of the selected company will be announced as soon as the agreement is finalized.
Purchase of a second ball mill
As a reminder, the company recently exercised their option to purchase a second 750 kW ball mill, a twin of the first, several components of which have already arrived at the Nampala site. Given that the capacity of the first crusher currently in operation is largely sufficient to achieve Robex's production objectives, this acquisition represents an opportunity to store a set of non-standard spare parts at a reasonable cost (shielding, motors, Hydraulic system, gearbox, etc.).
The pre-production data presented in this press release has been validated by Mr. Antoine Berton, P.Eng., Ph.D., metallurgist at Soutex, a consulting firm in metallurgy and ore processing permanently present at the Nampala site.
