Heye Daun joins MSE to discuss Osino Resources’ (TSXV:OSI – OTC:OSIIF – FSE:R2R1) recently-announced increased mineral resource of over 3M AuOz for its Twin Hills Gold Project in the Erongo Region of Namibia. The mineral resource was estimated from approximately 212,184m of diamond core and reverse circulation drilling. Drill collars were generally spaced at 35m x 35m on surface and inclined at 60°, resulting in an effective data spacing of 35m laterally and 30m on section lines.
A specific area of the Twin Hills Central resource, measuring 100m along strike and 50m across strike, was drilled at a closer spacing of 12.5m x 12.5m. This drilling was done as an orientation study to investigate the short-range variability of the deposit and possible implications on future grade control drilling configurations. In addition, the drilling provided insight into requirements for upgrading Indicated mineral resources to Measured.
Heye Daun, Osino’s President & CEO commented: “We are very pleased with the results of this updated mineral resource model which is going from strength to strength. We managed to add significant higher-grade ounces and converted almost all the previously classified Inferred resources to Indicated or Measured status. At an elevated cut-off grade of 0.9 g/t we now have more than 2moz at 1.46 g/t in the Measured & Indicated category and even at a lower cut-off of 0.3 g/t the average grade of the Measured & Indicated portion of the mineral resource increased to 1.08g/t. This has been achieved through a combination of more discrete resource modelling but also the addition of higher-grade material which was drilled over the last few months. Most of the resource growth came from Twin Hills West, but two new emerging zones of mineralization at Clouds West and Twin Hills North also contributed additional resource ounces. We expect the extra ounces and grade to make a meaningful difference to the overall project economics in the upcoming PFS and we are very excited about publishing the results of that PFS in early September.”
