Forsys’ Valencia uranium reserve in Namibia up 68%

05 may 2009

Toronto-based Forsys Metals reports that a revised Ore Reserve Estimate for the company’s wholly-owned Valencia Uranium Deposit in Namibia has been completed with reserve having increased by 68 percent to 51.4 Mlbs from 30.6 Mlbs.
It said the mine’s lifespan had as a result been increased to 15 years from 11 years.
Company president and chief executive Duane Parnham noted that “significant” improvements had been made in further defining the reserve, increasing overall grade, outlining a higher grade section of ore and improving the overall economics of mining the deposit.
“We expect our continued commitment to drilling at Valencia will result in additional improvements including further upgrades to the reserve and resource,” he said.
Forsys Metals recently increased the total measured and indicated resource at the Valencia by 47 percent to 61-million pounds, using a cut-off grade of 60 ppm U3O8.
This updated resource estimate was based on results from infill drilling at Valencia since mid-2007, incorporating 205 percussion drill holes and sixteen diamond drill holes.
The company, which last year agreed to a buyout offer from a company controlled by a Democratic Republic of Congo miner George Forrest, was expected to use this new mineral resource estimate to develop long-term planning goals and to evaluate the options for mining the deposit.
The mine is expected to produce approximately 3-million pounds of uranium a year.
