In September 2012 assays on five samples of the gold bearing tailings and dumps (Table 1) were conducted by RDI of Denver. Results are summarized in Table 2.
“We are confident in the grades of this material and are very eager to conclude the metallurgical testing so that we can unlock the Project’s cash-flow potential” says Theo van der Linde, President of Coronet. “Processing the gold bearing tailings and dumps is part of our near-term cash flow strategy that will form a very strong foundation for our exploration strategy in this under-explored area”.

* References to tonnages are historical estimates. The estimated tonnage of 250,000 tonnes was provided by the two different mining (name the company) engineering companies in October 2011 that the Company engaged to provide an estimate. The stockpile measurement is a technique to measure the volume and weight of commodity stockpiles. It is a scientific/ instrumental method, using Total Station equipment to determine the volume of the stockpile quantity. While the Company believes that the historical tonnage estimate is useful to guide future work on the project it cautions readers that these historical estimates should not be relied upon.
