Rotation Minerals Ltd. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has hired Ecos Environmental Consulting Inc. of Smithers BC to ensure that the active Mine Permit 134 on the property is compliant with present government standards. The Mine Permit which was in effect during the mining operations carried out during 1981 to 1984 is still in place. The Company is working at re-activating the mine as all the mill facilities are intact in their underground location.
During operations, 95,426 ounces of gold were recovered from 201,462 tons milled. At shutdown, mine personnel calculated the mine hosted a geological resource of 132,306 tons averaging 0.560 opt Au. The resource estimate is non 43-101 compliant but has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable and relevant but have not been verified by the Company. They can only be described as historical estimates.
In addition the Company plans to continue exploration in order to define resources on the project. To date, only 25 % of the property has been actively explored. The Company will test along strike and at depth on the known gold bearing structures during the 2017 field season.
Ed. Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, is in charge of the exploration programs on behalf of the Company and is responsible for the contents of this release. E. Kruchkowski is not independent of Rotation as he is a director of the Company.
