Maiden Gold Resource Estimate Is Twice the Expected Size

In a May 29 research note, PI Financial analyst Brian Szeto reported that Revival Gold Inc. (RVG:TSX.V) announced an NI-43-101 compliant, maiden resource estimate for its flagship Beartrack gold project in Idaho; the resource estimate far exceeded PI Financial's forecast.

The initial resource, based on 458 holes comprising 71,000 meters of drilling, was 2 million ounces (2 Moz) gold at an average grade of 1.22 grams per ton (1.22 g/t). About 61% of the resource is in the Indicated category, and roughly 17% is made up of oxide material. Further, the deposit remains open at depth and to the south.

The base case, Szeto pointed out, assumes a US$1,300 per ounce gold price and a cutoff grade of 0.6 g/t. With a higher cutoff grade of 0.8 g/t, "there are still 1.3 Moz within the resource block model."

The analyst noted that PI Financial views this reported 2 Moz gold resource size as "very positive." He added, "We had been expecting an initial resource of approximately 1 Moz, so the resource announced today is significantly above our expectations." Also impressive, he wrote, is how quickly Revival advanced Beartrack to this stage, in about seven months post acquisition.
