About the Sergeevskoe Licence Area

The Sergeevskoe licence covers an area of 7.6 km2 and is located approximately 40 km to the southwest of the town of Mogocha, Zabaikal’skiy Region of the Russian Federation. Mogocha is an administrative centre of the Mogocha District and hosts a large railway station on the Trans-Siberian Railway which runs within approximately 35 km of the licence area. The newly built Chita-Khabarovsk motorway (M58) is approximately 8 km to the south of the licence area. The distance to the Sergeevskoe Project area from the city of Chita, an administrative centre of the Zabaikal’skiy Regionin eastern Siberia, is approximately 650 km.

The Sergeevskoe licence area is located immediately west of the Klyuchevskoe gold deposit (see image below), which is owned by Sun Gold Ltd (“Sun Gold”). According to Dr BI Benevolskiy, who published detailed accounts of historical production of gold in a monograph “Gold of Russia” (Benevolskiy, 2002; see footnote 3), the Klyuchevskoe deposit has historically produced over 1.3 million ounces of gold from an open pit, whose western wall is located 300 metres from the eastern margin of the Sergeevskoe license area. According to public information published by Vestnik Zolotopromyshlennika (Gold Miner Bulletin) on August 31, 2016 (see footnote 4), the Klyuchevskoe deposit has estimated mineral resources containing 47.8 tonnes of gold in Russian style A+B+C1 categories, 26.6 tonnes of gold in Russian style C2 category and 4 tonnes of gold in ‘out of balance’ category, complying with Russian Code for the Public Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, all grading up to 2 grammes of gold per tonne. According to the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Agency, the Klyuchevskoe mine is in the advanced stages of being sold to China National Gold Group (see footnote 4).

The nearby Alexandrovskoe gold mine, which was commissioned in September 2013, lies to the west of the Sergeevskoe license area (see image below). Alexandrovskoe Gold Mining Limited has disclosed on its website that in the end of 2012, the Russian style reserves were approved by Protocol No.2853 of the Russian State Reserves Committee, amounting to 7.898 million tonnes in Russian-style С1+ С2 categories (balance + off-balance) with 23.894 tonnes (715 381 ounces) of gold grading 2.9 grammes of gold per tonne. Alexandrovskoe Gold Mining Limited also reported Russian-style resources at Alexandrovskoye ore field estimated to be more than 2 million ounces of gold (see footnote 4).
