Soma Gold Corp. (TSX-V: SOMA) (WKN: A2P4DU) (OTC: SMAGF) is pleased to announce the completion of an updated independent Mineral Resource Estimate for the Company’s El Bagre and Nechí Projects and a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment for the development of the Cordero Mine, in Antioquia, Colombia. All values are in Canadian dollars (CAD$) unless otherwise noted. El Bagre Complex consists of three underground mines, two of which, Le Ye and Los Mangos, will be mined out shortly, and Cordero, which is currently under development.
Mineral Resource Highlights:
(000 oz Au)
Cordero Mine PEA Highlights:
“We are very pleased with the results of our first updated resource since we acquired the El Bagre Gold Mining Complex (including the Cordero Mine) and the Nechi Project in 2020. Total contained ounces in all categories at Cordero has increased significantly from the previously reported resource, and we anticipate adding additional ounces with future drill programs.” states Javier Cordova, Soma’s CEO.
“Our development program at the Cordero Mine is well advanced with Cordero supplying the vast majority of the mineralized material for the Company’s El Bagre Mill from 2023 onwards as our two legacy and lower-grade mines are phased out. As production at Cordero ramps up to planned levels of 680 tpd, it will also allow us to restart our currently idle El Limon mill. The results of the PEA support the attractive economics of our mining operations.”
