Mandalay Resources Corporation Increases Gold Reserves by 41% and Antimony Reserves by 108% in 2013
TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2014 /CNW/ – Mandalay Resources Corporation
(“Mandalay” or the “Company”) (TSX: MND) is pleased to announce that
its 2013 exploration and acquisition efforts have resulted in a
significant increase in Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves. Cerro
Bayo replaced mined reserves during the year and generated a large
boost in Inferred Resources from the recently announce drilling for
extensions to Fabiola and Yasna veins. Costerfield Reserves increased
due to the conversion of a significant amount of Inferred Resource in
the Cuffley and N Lodes through a combination of infill drilling and
first mine development. The major boost in Inferred Resource of silver
came from inclusion of Inferred Resources at the recently acquired
Challacollo project. La Quebrada Resources were unchanged during the
In the Proven and Probable Reserve category, contained gold (“Au”)
increased by 41%, contained silver (“Ag”) declined by 2% and contained
antimony (“Sb”) increased by 108%. In the Measured and Indicated
Resource category, contained Au increased by 31%, contained Ag
increased by 18%, contained Sb increased by 52% and contained copper
(“Cu”) was unchanged. In the Inferred Resource category, contained Au
increased by 26%, contained Ag increased by 811%, contained Sb
increased by 13%, and contained Cu was unchanged. All changes are net
of mine depletion at year-end 2013.

Details of the NI 43-101 compliant Resource and Reserve estimates at

by independent third parties: Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. (“RPA”) at
Cerro Bayo and Challacollo, SRK Consulting (Australasia) Pty Ltd.
(“SRK”) at Costerfield, and Michael Easdon at La Quebrada. The La
Quebrada Mineral Resource estimate is fully documented in a Technical
Report filed August 16, 2012 on www.sedar.com. The Challacollo Mineral Resource estimate is fully documented in a
Technical Report filed February 7, 2014, on www.sedar.com. The year-end 2013 estimates of Mineral Resources and Reserves at the
Cerro Bayo and Costerfield mines will be fully documented in
independent Technical Reports to be filed on www.sedar.com within 45 days of this press release.
Brad Mills, CEO of Mandalay, commented, “Mandalay’s strategy of
reinvesting operational cash flow in exploration was successful once
again in 2013. Cerro Bayo, initially acquired in 2010 and restarted
with a nominal mine life of three years based on Proven and Probable
Reserves at the time, replaced 2013 depletion and now has a nominal
life of approximately six years after three years of production.
Costerfield converted most of the potential Measured, Indicated, and
Inferred mill feed documented in the Preliminary Economic Analysis
(“PEA”) of mining the Cuffley lode (see press release dated September
10, 2013) to Mineral Reserves; it has extended its mine life to over
three years at the current higher production rates.”
Mr. Mills continued, “At Cerro Bayo, the Company has expanded existing
Mineral Reserves in the Marcela, Coyita, Delia NW, and Yasna veins. In
addition, it added Mineral Reserves at two new veins that previously
had none, Trinidad and Raul. Significantly, as previously reported (see
press release of January 15, 2014) two of three widely spaced diamond
drill holes drilled into Fabiola and Yasna veins intersected high-grade
mineralized zones in both target veins up to 500 m along strike from
existing Mineral Reserves. The extensions of these two veins now have
been preliminarily estimated to contain some 3.5 million ounces of
Inferred Resources at well above average silver and gold grades from
the very limited drilling completed to date. Follow-up drilling to
determine the size of the shoots is underway now.”
Mr. Mills further commented, “At Costerfield, the Company focused
drilling in the first half of the year on expanding Mineral Resources
for the Cuffley PEA, and in the second half of the year on converting
those Resources to Mineral Reserves. With a growing mine life ahead of
us, we are now turning our attention to drill testing several
kilometres of favorable strike length where previous wide-spaced
drilling intersected veins of potentially economic grade over
potentially mineable widths.
Concluding his remarks, Mr. Mills said, “Finally, in addition to growing
resources and reserves through mine site exploration, we added 8
million oz Ag of Indicated and 24.3 million oz Ag of Inferred Resource
with our acquisition of the Challacollo property in Chile. We have
embarked on a 12 month study to determine the feasibility of building
an underground mine and processing facility at the property. Based on a
successful conclusion of this study we would expect most of the
resources to convert to reserves in time for our next annual update.”
Cerro Bayo 2013 Exploration and Resulting Reserves and Resources
During 2013, Mandalay drilled approximately 37,543 metres (“m”) of
diamond core at a cost of US$4.77 million in the Yasna, Fabiola,
Bianca, Dagny, Delia NW, Coyita, Trinidad, Marcela Sur and Raul veins.
As well, mapping and closely spaced sampling along 6,751 m of vein
drive advance in the Bianca, Dagny, Fabiola, Yasna, and Delia NW veins,
5,395 m of which were in mineralization, formed the basis for upgrading
previously Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resources to Measured Mineral
Resources, and subsequently Proven Mineral Reserves. In addition, Raul
and Trinidad veins were incorporated into Mineral Resources and Mineral
Drill core was logged and sampled by Mandalay geologists and both core
and mine samples were assayed on-site at the Compañia Minera Cerro Bayo
laboratory. The Cerro Bayo laboratory, which was audited in 2011 by SGS
Lakefield Research Ltd., routinely sends check samples to ALS
Laboratory (an ISO 9001:2008 and ISO/IEC 17025:2005 certified
laboratory) in La Serena, Chile consistent with quality assurance and
quality control (“QA/QC”) practices established by Mandalay.
Core and mine sample data was entered into Vulcan software and vein
walls were interpreted manually in a wireframe model. Gold values for
the diamond drill holes and channel samples were capped at a range of
10 grams per tonne (“g/t”) to 70 g/t; silver values were capped at a
range of 1,000 g/t to 6,000 g/t (and 10,000 g/t for a Dagny vein
high-grade envelope) before compositing across the vein width. A bulk
density of 2.63 t/m(3) was used. Grades for gold and silver for each resource block were
estimated by the inverse distance cubed method. Parent block (length x
1m x 1m) and sub block (0.1m x 1m x 1m) sizes were used with a
resultant block size of the vein width x 1m x 1m.
Mineral Resources were estimated at a cut-off grade of 163 g/t Ag
equivalent (“AgEq”) grade (using US$1,400/oz Au and US$24/oz Ag) over a
minimum vein width of 1.2 m. AgEq is calculated using the formula AgEq=
Ag + (Au x 59.64) where Ag and Au are in grams per tonne.

Costerfield 2013 Exploration and Resulting Mineral Resources and
During 2013, Mandalay drilled approximately 20,000 m of diamond core for
US$4.8 million. Virtually all of the drilling extended or infilled
Mineral Resources in W, N, and Cuffley lodes. In addition, the Company
completed 5,988 m of operating development and mine sampling, mostly in
N and Cuffley lodes, 5,038 m of which were in ore.
Drill core was logged and sampled by Costerfield geologists, who also
performed mine sampling. All samples were sent to commercial labs for
sample preparation and assay. Site geological and metallurgical
personnel have implemented a QA/QC process that includes the regular
submission of standard reference materials and blanks with drill and
face samples submitted for assay to Onsite Labs in Bendigo, Victoria,
Australia. Standard reference materials have been certified by Geostats
Core and mine sampling data were entered into Datamine software and
composited to true vein width after applying a top cut of 150 g/t to
the gold grades. Gold, antimony and lode thickness were estimated into
a two dimensional block model for each lode using ordinary kriging.
Mineral Resources were estimated at a cut-off grade of 3.9 g/t Au
equivalent (“AuEq”) grade (using US$1,400/oz Au and US$12,000/t Sb)
over a minimum vein width of 1.2 m. AgEq is calculated using the

The cut-off grade has increased from 3.6 g/t AuEq used in the June 31, 2013, Mineral Resource estimate due to changes in the minimum mining width, metal price assumptions, updated costings, recoveries and other assumptions. 9. The Brunswick Mineral Resource has not been re-estimated since it was reported in Frederickson, D., 2009, Costerfield Gold and Antimony Project, Augusta and Brunswick Deposits. Frederickson Geological Solutions Pty Ltd. 10. Previously reported Indicated Resources for the Brunswick Deposit have been classified as Inferred by SRK here. A review of the available data could not support the Indicated classification due to discrepancies in the QA/QC data as previously reported in Frederickson, 2009 and the lack of reconciliation data. 11. The Mineral Resource estimation for Augusta and Cuffley deposits was performed by Bob Lidbury, fulltime employee of SRK Consulting, BSc, MAIG, who is a qualified person under NI 43-101 and is the Competent Person for the Augusta and Cuffley Mineral Resource Estimates. 12. Bob Lidbury, BSc, MAIG, fulltime employee of SRK Consulting is a qualified person under NI 43-101 and is the Competent Person for the Brunswick Mineral Resource Estimate.
From the Mineral Resource, a mine plan was designed based only on
Measured and Indicated Resource blocks using predominantly the cemented
rock fill blast hole stoping method. A cut-off grade of 5.0 g/t AuEq
and minimum mining widths of 1.8 m were used, with planned and
unplanned dilution at zero grade. Financial viability of Proven and
Probable Mineral Reserves was demonstrated at metal prices of
US$1,200/oz Au and US$10,000/t Sb prices.

The Mineral Reserve estimate was prepared by Peter Fairfield, SRK Consulting, FAusIMM, who is a qualified person under NI 43-101.
The net increase of 140,000 oz AuEq in Proven and Probable Reserves for
2013 consists of a total of 223,000 oz AuEq added to Reserves,
partially offset by the 83,000 oz that were depleted. The $4.8 million
2013 exploration cost divided by the 223,000 oz added represents
US$21/oz Au Eq. added to Proven and Probable Reserves.
