pit, underground mining operation.

 
 

“Serengeti is very pleased to have achieved this important milestone for the Kwanika project,” commented David W. Moore, President & CEO. “Kwanika represents an opportunity to develop a midsize greenfields copper-gold project in an excellent location and proven jurisdiction. The independent consultant has recommended selected optimization studies to refine certain engineering and costing elements, the results of which could be incorporated into an optimized PEA. We are currently funded to take this next step.”

 

The PEA prepared by Moose Mountain Technical Services (“MMTS”) is based on the resource model presented in the March 3, 2011 NI43-101 technical report titled “Technical Report on the Kwanika Project, Fort St. James British Columbia, Canada”, authored by David W.
