Galane Gold Ltd. Mines First Ore From Tau Underground

 

 

 

 

 

Galane Gold Ltd. (TSX-V:GG) is pleased to announce that it has mined its first ore from Tau Underground.
 

The Company has previously disclosed its intention to exploit the reported measured and indicated resource of 128.6 thousand ounces of gold for Tau through underground mining. It commenced the project in the fourth quarter of 2013 and has now completed the forced portal entry at the bottom of the existing Tau pit, installation of the entire infrastructure required, appointment of an underground contractor and the development work required to reach ore.
 

The Company has put together a mine plan based on the reported resource to mine approximately 85,000 ounces of gold over the next three and a half years. A detailed mine plan has been produced and the mining method used will be long hole open stoping.

 

It is expected that once underground we will start a comprehensive exploration programme to confirm that the mineralisation continues at depth and expand the existing mine plan.
 

Ravi Sood, Galane Gold’s CEO, stated, “This is a major step in the evolution of the Company both with regards to a change from open pit mining to underground mining and our plans to extend mine life through further exploration. We are also putting together a mine plan to connect all the current pits on the Mupane mining license underground, as for example we know that mineralisation continues at depth at Tholo and Kwena.
 

“In addition the fact that we have completed this project within 6 months and from our own operating cash-flows is a testament to the experienced management team that we have put in place.”
