19th August, 2021 – TheNewswire - Toronto, ON. – Otso Gold Corp. (“Otso” or the “Company”), (TSXV:OTSO) (OTC:FIEIF) is pleased to announce a National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) Mineral Resource Update for the Otso Gold Mine. The NI 43-101 Technical Report prepared by John T Boyd Company (‘Boyd’) will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days of this release.

The updated technical report is the first deliverable from Boyd and will be followed by an NI 43-101 Feasibility Study, to include estimation of minable reserves.

Boyd is currently preparing mine designs and a production plan which will be used to begin initial mine preparation, waste removal and the restart of production  in September 2021. Further, the mine designs and a production plan will form a part of the feasibility study.

The following table summarizes the findings to be included in the Mineral Resource Technical Report.  The mineral resources are split between high grade and low grade to accommodate separate processing of the high grade and low grade plant feed through different circuits.

Notes to the Mineral Resource Resource Estimate:

(1)    The effective date for this mineral resource estimate is August 5, 2021 and is reported on a 100% ownership basis.  This estimate is an update using additional assays and exploration drilling as well as updated economics.

(2)  Mineral Resources are calculated at a gold price of US$1,600 per troy ounce.  

(3)    The mineral resources presented above are global and do not include a detailed pit, only an economic pit shell was used to determine the in-pit mineral resources.  

(4)    Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.  The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, socio-political, marketing, or other relevant issues.

(5)    The mineral resources presented here were estimated using a block model with a block size of 9 m by 9 m by 9 m sub-blocked to a minimum block size of 3 m by 3 m by 3 m using ID3 methods for grade estimation.  All mineral resources are reported using an open pit gold cut-off of 0.323 g/t Au.  Open pit mineral resources above 0.600 g/t are considered high grade material while material between 0.323 g/t and 0.600 g/t are considered low grade..  

(6)    The mineral resources presented here were estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines prepared by the CIM Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted by CIM Council May 10, 2014.

(7)  Figures are rounded and totals may not add correctly.

Processing of high grade  material will be processed through the existing plant with some flow sheet modifications intended to improve overall recovery. High grade processing is expected to commence in September 2021. Low grade material, which was previously below cut-off grade and was therefore treated as waste, will be treated through a separate circult currently being developed.

The Company is working closely with Boyd to complete metallurgical testing which will inform the recommendations in the feasibility in relation to the installation of a separate low grade circuit, however initial tests are encouraging.

Brian Wesson stated: “Otso is pleased with the results of this resource estimate and optimisation of waste management. The Company looks forward to completion of the Resource Technical Report, as well as the Feasibility Study to follow. The results of this work represent the culmination of extensive geological work and the infill drilling program the Company has been completing since February, and represents the final milestone before the restart of production next month”.

The technical disclosure in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Sam J. Shoemaker, SME Registered Member, a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Caution

The Company cautions that it has not defined or delineated any proven or probable reserves for the Otso Mine Project and mineralization estimates may therefore require adjustment or downward revision based upon further exploration or development work or actual production experience. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

The Company also cautions that the decision by the Company to proceed to develop the Osto Mine Project and extract mineralization proceeded without the Company first establishing reserves supported by a technical report and completing a pre-feasibility or feasibility study.  Accordingly, there is a higher risk of technical and economic failure at Osto because development proceeded without first establishing reserves supported by a technical report and completing a feasibility study.  This is particularly relevant as the Company has proceeded with development at Osto on indicated and inferred resources without first completing a preliminary economic report.


About the Company

Otso Gold Corp. wholly owns the Otso Gold Mine near the town of Raahe in Finland. The

Otso Gold Mine is fully built, fully permitted, has all infrastructure in place, two open pits

and is progressing towards a restart at 2 million tonnes per annum throughput.

(“Denison”).  The Term Loan was used by UEX to purchase JCU (Canada) Exploration Company, Limited (“JCU”), as more particularly described in UEX’s news release dated August 3, 2021.

 

UEX repaid the outstanding balance of C$20.45 million to Denison on September 17, 2021.   Previously, C$20.5 million of the Term Loan was repaid upon UEX transferring 50% of the JCU shares to Denison immediately following the closing of the JCU acquisition (see UEX’s news release dated August 3, 2021).  The shares of JCU owned by UEX that were pledged as security to Denison have been released to UEX.

 

About UEX

UEX is a Canadian uranium and cobalt exploration and development company involved in an exceptional portfolio of uranium projects. 

UEX’s directly-owned portfolio of projects is located in the eastern, western and northern perimeters of the Athabasca Basin, the world's richest uranium belt which in 2020 accounted for approximately 8.1% of the global primary uranium production.  In addition to advancing its uranium development projects through its ownership interest in JCU,  UEX is currently advancing several other uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin which include the Paul Bay, Ken Pen and Ōrora deposits at the Christie Lake Project , the Kianna, Anne, Colette and 58B deposits at its currently 49.1%-owned Shea Creek Project, the Horseshoe and Raven deposits located on its 100%-owned Horseshoe-Raven Development Project and the West Bear Uranium Deposit located at its 100%-owned West Bear Project.

UEX is also 50:50 co-owner of JCU with Denison.  JCU’s portfolio of projects includes interests in some of Canada’s key future uranium development projects, notably a 30.099% interest in Cameco’s Millennium Uranium Development Project, a 10% interest in Denison Mines Wheeler River Project, and a 33.8123% interest in Orano Canada’s Kiggavik Project, located in the Thelon Basin in Nunavut, as well as minority interests in nine other grassroots uranium projects in the Athabasca Basin.

UEX is also leading the discovery of cobalt in Canada, with three cobalt-nickel exploration projects located in the Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan, including the only primary cobalt deposit in Canada.  The 100% owned West Bear Project hosts the West Bear Cobalt-Nickel Deposit, the newly discovered Michael Lake Co-Ni Zone, and the West Bear Uranium Deposit.  UEX also owns 100% of two early-stage cobalt exploration projects, the Axis Lake and Key West Projects.
