Prize Ships First Gold Concentrate to Refinery
| ||Prize Mining Corporation ("Prize") (TSXV: PRZ) is very pleased to announce it has shipped its first batch of gold concentrate from the Atlin Gold Properties, located in northwestern British Columbia. Gold is being refined by Technic Inc. of Vancouver, BC. Prize Mining's first shipment returned a settlement weight of 206.90 ounces of gold, recovered from a very clean batch of gold concentrate of total weight 218.04 ounces. Fineness testing of the gold bar is currently underway.|
Prize Mining is currently processing (milling) forty 250 tonne bulk sample lots (for a total of 10,000 tonnes) which have been excavated from a bedrock pit located near the west end of the Yellowjacket Zone in an area where previously determined high grade "nuggety" gold mineralization comes to the bedrock surface.
In conjunction with the bedrock bulk sample processing, Prize Mining is also recovering gold from the overburden/bedrock interface material that was stockpiled during the excavation phase. Any remaining placer gold from this material is being removed by traditional sluicing methods and the washed oversize bedrock material will be retained to process through the mill in order to recover bedrock gold.
Ms. Linda Dandy, P.Geo., the project supervisor of Prize Mining's trial mining program on the Yellowjacket Zone of its Atlin Gold Properties, is the Corporation's nominated Qualified Person responsible for monitoring the supervision and quality control of the programs completed within the Atlin Gold Properties. Ms. Dandy has reviewed and verified the technical information contained in this news release.
