Rothsay hosts high-grade mineral resources of 454,000 ounces at an average grade of 9.2 g/t gold which includes indicated resources of 949,000 tonnes at 9.6 g/t and inferred of 590,000 tonnes at 8.6 g/t.

The company’s updated definitive feasibility study published February this year states a produdtion target of 2.3 million tonnes mined and 1.3 million tonnes processed at 7.2 g/t gold for 289,000 ounces of gold produced.

Longer-term growth will be based on a strategy of using cashflow from initial mining to target extensions of the main deposit and explore surrounding tenements.

These include an 18-kilometre strike length of highly prospective and unexplored stratigraphy.
