Castle Silver Resources to study possible new plant and processing deal with Granada Gold Mine

by Greg Klein | September 11, 2017

A gold milling arrangement now under consideration could offer synergies to two companies with overlapping management, directors and staff. Under an MOU signed by Castle Silver Resources TSXV:CSR and Granada Gold Mine TSXV:GGM, Castle Silver will study the potential installation of a 600-tpd gravity flotation plant at one of its northern Ontario properties. The facility would process feed from the proposed Granada gold mine across the Quebec border near Rouyn-Noranda. Castle Silver expects to complete the study in Q4.

Granada’s proposed mine reached pre-feas
in 2014 and a resource update in May.

A resource update released last May used a 0.39 g/t cutoff to show an in-pit measured and indicated total of 21.57 million tonnes averaging 1.16 g/t for 807,700 gold ounces. An underground inferred category for an area north of the potential open pit used a 1.5 g/t cutoff for 10.38 million tonnes averaging 4.56 g/t for 1.52 million ounces. Granada stated the new 43-101 supersedes the pre-feasibility report released in 2014.

The company describes its project as fully permitted, shovel-ready and one of the region’s largest undeveloped gold projects.

Meanwhile Castle Silver waits on assays for its namesake flagship, where summer drilling sunk 22 holes totalling 2,405 metres. Chip and bulk sampling results from the former underground silver mine have returned gold, cobalt and nickel grades in addition to silver. More bulk sampling is planned.

Castle Silver has raised $2.6 million since March.
