SSR Mining provides November exploration update
SSR Mining provided an update on its exploration activities and results at its Marigold mine in Nevada, U.S., and Seabee Gold Operation in Saskatchewan, Canada for the period from August 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018. At the Seabee Gold Operation, confirmation of a discovery at the Santoy Gap hanging wall is expected to define new gold Mineral Resources when we report our Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves estimates for year-end 2018. Drill results at Santoy Gap HW include: Drillhole SUG-18-622 intersected 25.6 g/t gold over 4.1 meters true width; and Drillhole SUG-18-612 intersected 12.3 g/t gold over 4.8 meters true width. Also at the Seabee Gold Operation, infill drilling at Santoy 8A is expected to convert Inferred Mineral Resources to the Indicated category when we report our Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves estimates for year-end 2018. Drill results at Santoy 8A include: Drillhole SUG-18-941 intersected 11.2 g/t gold over 18.5 meters true width; and Drillhole SUG-18-943 intersected 14.1 g/t gold over 7.0 meters true width; and Drillhole SUG-18-913 intersected 12.2 g/t gold over 7.0 meters true width. Infill drill results for the Red Dot area at the Marigold mine include: Drillhole MRA6626 intersected 3.4 g/t gold over 71.6 meters intersected width, including 8.9 g/t gold over 25.9 meters intersected width; and Drillhole MRA6647 intersected 1.2 g/t gold over 185.9 meters intersected width, including two higher grade intervals of 8.8 g/t gold over 6.1 meters, and 3.6 g/t gold over 32.0 meters.
