Probe Gold Completes Acquisition of the Beaufor and McKenzie Break Properties in Val-d’Or, Quebec; Consolidates Gold Resources Around the Novador Project

 

 

 

 

 

Highlights:

  • The acquisition of the Beaufor and McKenzie Break properties continues the Company’s strategic consolidation of gold resources and exploration potential surrounding its Novador development project, which hosts a current resource of 3,793,900 ounces M&I and 1,179,400 ounces Inferred along the Monique, Pascalis, and Courvan gold trend deposits.
  • The Beaufor property currently hosts an historic, high-grade, measured and indicated gold resource of 219,200 ounces of gold at 5.3 g/t and inferred mineral resource of 122,500 ounces of gold at 4.7 g/t. This further consolidates the Courvan Gold Trend, which includes the Courvan, Senore and Beaufor deposits. The trend contains significant exploration upside, which will be the focus going forward in 2024 and 2025.
  • The McKenzie Break Property is proximal to the Company’s Novador Project and hosts an historic, high-grade indicated gold resource of 146,000 ounces of gold at 3.2 g/t, with an inferred mineral resource of 250,600 ounces of gold at 3.1 g/t. The property has significant exploration upside, and exploration programs are currently being planned.
  • The acquisition costs of $11.50/oz are comparable to the Company’s discovery costs at Novador of approximately $10/oz, and therefore represents a very accretive transaction.
