In Canada, over 80% of Gold comes from orogenic deposits, with the Abitibi region alone contributing over 180Moz Au.
Orogenic Gold deposits can produce high grade veins as well as low grade bulk tonnage deposits.
We would expect 90+% recovery rates (both by gravity and flotation concentrate methods)
Highly analogous to Canadian examples including Abitibi region (Campbell-Red Lake, Kirkland Lake, Hemlo, Dome, McIntyre-Hollinger, Malartic), Barkerville/Cariboo, Klondike, and Bralorne. Global analogies include IAMGOLD’s Rosebel & Sarimaka operations (Suriname), Muruntau (Uzkekistan) and many others.
