Golden Eagle Reports on Production at C Zone Gold Mill
Golden Eagle International, Inc. (OTCBB: MYNG) reported today that it is recovering gold at its C Zone operation in eastern Bolivia. The Company's first 778 grams (25 troy ounces) will be sold at a minimum price of $840 per troy ounce pursuant to a sales contract. The C Zone operation is estimated to be averaging between 60 and 200 tonnes per day (tpd). The Company has had to curtail mining activity on several days to dedicate earth-moving equipment to necessary infrastructure development as the open pit mining progressed to ensure the safety of the mine, or due to fuel shortages in the remote area of Bolivia in which the C Zone is located. Gold grades, which the Company expected to be low during the initial phase of superficial mining to open up the C Zone work area, are 280 milligrams per tonne (.28 g/t). Those grades are projected to improve as the mine deepens and more of a cross section of the deposit is mined down into the eluvial gold deposition where exploration demonstrated higher gold concentrations.
To facilitate increased fuel storage at the C Zone operation, and help alleviate fuel shortages caused by Bolivia's national distribution network, Golden Eagle has ordered the fabrication of an additional fuel storage tank. The Company estimates this new tank will be on-site within four weeks.Golden Eagle International, Inc. is a gold and copper exploration and mining company headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah and with offices also in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The Company's efforts have centered on establishing production operations on its gold project on the C Zone within its 136,500 acres (213 square miles) in eastern Bolivia's Precambrian Shield. The Company is also continuing the development of its Buen Futuro A Zone gold and copper project. In addition, Golden Eagle is working to maximize the potential of its Gold Bar 3,500 to 4,500 tpd CIP gold mill located in Eureka, Nevada through a joint venture, toll refining arrangement or potential merger.
