Managing Director’s Comments
PNX Managing Director James Fox said: “With the Sale and Purchase agreement for the Glencoe gold deposit nearing completion, the Company will move to finalise an updated Mineral Resource estimate. These gold resources will be incorporated into the Fountain Head mining development schedule that also includes Mt Bonnie gold and silver oxides. The Company has also submitted its mine management plan for dewatering of the Fountain Head pit and the Project EIS is expected to be completed in early May this year. Both of these documents are critical path items for the Government and Environmental approvals process. Como Engineers have also been engaged to provide guidance and input into the process plant design.”
