Erdene’s drilling expands gold mineralization in multiple zones adjacent to the Bayan Khundii gold deposit

Erdene Resource Development Corporation announced its final results from the first 10,000 meters phase of its 18,0

  • 00 meters Khundii gold district drill program, including multiple high-grade gold intersections in areas adjacent to the planned Bayan Khundii economic pit.
  • “Recent drilling has expanded gold mineralized zones beyond the pit and resource boundaries in multiple locations, confirming the potential to expand resources at our Bayan Khundii Gold Project, most significantly in the Striker West zone,” said Peter Akerley, Erdene’s President and CEO. “Coupled with the previously announced 2020 drilling results from high-grade zones in Midfield South East, Midfield North and Striker South, located peripheral to the existing high-grade reserves, we have intersected mineralization that should meaningfully add to total gold resources.”
  • “We have engaged independent consultants to incorporate these results into an updated resource estimate that is also expected to use an updated gold price to determine the resource cut-off grade in defining a revised pit constrained resource,” continued Mr. Akerley. “We expect to announce an updated Bayan Khundii resource in the first half of 2021.”
  • “We are excited by the demonstrated expansion potential as well as the probability for further discoveries in our underexplored District,” concluded Mr. Akerley. “Drilling has shifted back to Dark Horse and other early stage targets under license. The second, 8,000 metre phase of the program is underway and scheduled to run through to the end of the year.”
