Resource growth

The Bellevue Gold Project has significant scope for growth with gold resources rising 23% to 6.1 million tonnes at 11.3 g/t for 2.2 million ounces over the March quarter.

This increase stemmed from the maiden resource at the Deacon Lode of 410,000 ounces at 12.3 g/t.

Deacon Resource covers the central 900 metres of the recently extended 2 kilometres mineralised strike with numerous high-grade intersections still outside the resource awaiting closer-spaced drilling.

The first phase of infill drilling has been completed ahead of schedule and on budget, putting Bellevue on track for a maiden indicated resource in June.

The historic Bellevue Gold Mine produced 800,000 ounces at 15 g/t from 1986 to 1997.

Project development

Progress has been made with dewatering of the historic Bellevue underground which will deliver benefits including:

  • Access to more than 28,000 metres of existing underground mine development,
  • Significantly lower costs for drilling measured and indicated category resources,
  • Lower cost and more rapid drilling of Deacon and Mavis Lode discoveries,
  • Access for drilling resource extensions to the south and across the project, and
  • Development ready for future mining options.

Desktop studies have highlighted the potential for multiple starter open pits which could generate early cashflow based on shallow, high-grade mineralisation.

Well-funded

Bellevue recently raised $26.5 million from a share placement which saw the world’s largest resources fund, Blackrock, emerge with a 10% stake in the company.

During the quarter, Parson exercised 20 million Bellevue options at a total cost of $775,000 and now holds 30 million shares, making him a top-ten shareholder in the company.

As of March 31, the company is well funded with $37.8 million in cash.
