During the quarter ended June 30, the Sleeping Giant mill completed the bulk sampling of nearly 5,000 tonnes from the Pershing-Manitou project in April. A separate press release on the bulk sampling from the Pershing-Manitou deposit will be issued once the independent firm submits its final report. Since May 2024, the Sleeping Giant mine has fed the Sleeping Giant mill 100%. The processed material comes from existing stopes. Abcourt plans to feed the mill mainly with development material to access the stopes in the coming weeks and months and then increase the proportion of material coming from production stopes.

Pascal Hamelin, President and CEO of the Corporation comments: “We are very pleased to see the high-grade material from the Sleeping Giant mine arriving at the mill. We have been working very hard for several months to get to this moment. We now have confirmation that the mill can efficiently process Sleeping Giant material with recoveries above 95%. It is also very pleasant to see feed grade higher than expected. We are now focusing on developing new sectors of the mine and increasing the mill’s feed towards a monthly production of 2,500 ounces in a first phase as indicated in the preliminary economic study of June 2023.”
