Majestic Gold Corp. (TSX.V:MJS) (FSE:MJT) is pleased to announce the results of an updated resource estimate on its Song Jiagou Mine. As part of the ongoing assessment on the Song Jiagou Mine, Wardrop Engineering Inc. (”Wardrop”) has revised their previous resource estimate (NR 23 April, 2010) as a result of the revision to the contract mining costs (NR 30 September 2010) which allowed cut-off grades to be reduced from 0.40 g/t to 0.30 g/t and warranted a revision of the block model. Subsequent to the initial resource estimate, Wardrop determined that rotating the block model perpendicular to drilling direction was the most favorable orientation to evaluate the deposit and to calculate the revised resource.
The new cut-off grade and the re-orientation of the model significantly increased the overall size of the resource and the contained ounces of gold in both the inferred and indicated categories. The most significant changes from the previous estimate are: Increase in Indicated tonnes by 35.34% to 33,739,586 tonnes; Increase in Indicated contained gold by 24.09% to 1,244,211 ounces; Increase in Inferred tonnes by 37.96% to 38,812,054 tonnes; and Increase in Inferred contained gold by 7.48% to 1,830,576 ounces.
The increase in the size of the resource from 53 to 72.5 million tonnes will very significantly reduce the strip ratios to be used as Majestic Gold continues its engineering studies on the Song Jiagou mine. Wardrop will move forward now to re-evaluate a production pit design.
Majestic Gold continues to work with Wardrop and its sister company, Tetra Tech (Beijing) Consultancy Company Limited, (both subsidiaries of Terta Tech Inc.) to complete a Preliminary Economic Assessment, concurrent with the required Chinese Geological and Engineering studies required to apply for increased production levels at Song Jiagou. The results of these studies will ultimately culminate in a Pre-feasibility report.
