The total Mineral Resources including measured, inferred, indicative of the company stands at 155 million tonnes with an average grade of 1.32g/t of gold, which, in turn, would account for 6.61 million ounces of gold.
The total Ore Reserves of the company including both probable and proven stands at 97 million tonnes with an average grade of 1.25g/t of gold, which in turn, would account for 3.92 million ounces of gold.
