Cardinal chief executive officer and managing director Archie Koimtsidis said: “This close spaced infill drill program, along with the previous grade control programme within our proposed starter pit, confirms the robustness of our mineral resource, thereby providing higher confidence in predicting operational outcomes.
“The infill results are also key to underpinning the delivery of a high‐quality engineering study which will provide more informed economic data during the critical project finance payback period.
“An added benefit of these infill drill results is enhancing confidence in the first two to three years production from the proposed starter pit.
“This will assist Cardinal with project financing options for the Namdini Project with a declared open pit ore reserve of 5.1 million ounces of gold.”
