Significant exploration potential
Ongoing drill programs designed to increase Mineral Resource inventory. Significant exploration upside potential exists at all projects.
Classic’s flagship Kat Gap Gold Project has been the focus of the majority of its recent exploration effort. To facilitate early gold mining and processing, the Company on July 20 announced that it has purchased a Gekko on-site processing plant. The Australian made Gekko processing system is a transportable modular design that is scalable and is perfectly suited to the Kat Gap mineralisation. Also, the company is in discussions to generate an early revenue stream by initial toll treatment of ore. Classic aims to have the capability to commence production as soon as the mining approvals and a clearing permit have been granted.
The Forrestania Gold Project contains an existing Mineral Resource of 5.9Mt at 1.25g/t for 240,000 ounces of gold, classified and reported in accordance with the JORC Code (2012), with a recent Scoping Study indicating both the technical and financial viability of the project. The FGP gold assets include a high grade open pit mined by Sons of Gwalia – formerly Australia’s third-largest gold producer – in the early 2000s.
