1911 Gold Commences 2021 Tailings Reprocessing
TORONTO, Ontario, April 20, 2021 – 1911 Gold Corporation (“1911 Gold” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: AUMB; OTCQX: AUMBF) announces the commencement of the tailings reprocessing operations at the True North complex in Bissett, Manitoba. The Company expects to process between 200,000 and 240,000 tonnes in 2021, to recover approximately 4,500 ounces of gold.
“The weather conditions over the last several weeks have worked in our favour, allowing for the early restart of the 2021 tailings reprocessing operations.” Commented Ron Clayton, President and CEO “It is great to see the safe return of operating personnel to site and I look forward to the commencement of the 2021 field exploration season as well in the next several weeks.”
For the 2021 operating season the Company will be evaluating equipment for pre-screening and de-watering material at the tailings impoundment area, which, if shown to be successful, will significantly increase the tonnes processed as well as corresponding ounces produced.
In connection with the startup of the tailings reprocessing operations, the Company has had a gradual return of personnel to the True North site starting in late March, adhering to the COVID-19 safety protocols and onboarding procedures implemented in 2020.
