<< Drag to view the table >>

PROJECT SIZE:  23,800 Hectares (238km2)
TARGET STYLE: Orogenic and/or Intrusion-related Gold.
DRILL TARGETS:   Numerous.
TARGETS:   Multiple gold-in-soil and bedrock anomalies over a 35km length of the Saza Shear Zone (SSZ) and related structures. Six old gold mines within the project area, including the New Saza Mine which was Tanzania's second largest goldmine, producing 270,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 7.5g/t Au between 1939 and 1956.
OWNERSHIP: 100% owned, subject to royalty.
OPERATOR: On July 23, 2014, Plinian became the operator.
LOCATION:    Lupa Goldfield, southwestern Tanzania.
GEOLOGY:    Early Proterozoic Lupa Block - mineralisation is dated at around 1.94Ga.

SMP Gold Project - Resource Potential

NI 43-101 RESOURCE ESTIMATE

On March 26, 2015, Helio released a new NI 43-101 compliant resource calculation for the SMP Gold Project. The purpose of the resource was to estimate new Mineral Resources at the Konokono and Gap deposits and update previous estimates for the Kenge, Mbenge, Porcupine and Snakebite deposits, where additional drilling and/or updated resource estimation methodologies have been applied (for exact location, see map above).

Metallurgical tests indicate recoveries of 94%-96% using conventional processing methods.

  • Mineral Resources estimated as of 28 February, 2015
  • Canadian Institute of Mining ("CIM") standards were followed for estimating Mineral Resources.
  • Totals may appear different from the sum of their components due to rounding.
  • Mineral Resources are estimated using an average gold price of $1,400 per ounce.
  • Average bulk density is 2.70 t/m3.
  • Interpolation was by Ordinary Kriging utilizing diamond drill and reverse circulation samples
  • Pit envelope constrained Mineral Resources are estimated at a cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au, constrained by the $1,400 Au pit shell.
  • Potentially underground mineable Mineral Resources are estimated at a cut-off grade of 2.5 g/t Au.
  • A minimum mining width of approximately 1 m was used to interpret veins using diamond drill and reverse circulation sampling.
