FIORE GOLD CORRECTS MINOR ERROR IN TODAY’S GOLD ROCK RESOURCE ESTIMATE PRESS RELEASE
September 12, 2018
Vancouver, British Columbia – FIORE GOLD LTD. (TSXV: F) (OTCQB: FIOGF) (“Fiore” or the “Company”) wishes to correct an error in its press release of September 12, 2018 entitled “Fiore Gold Provides Baseline Mineral Resource Estimate For Its Gold Rock Project In Nevada“. While the information regarding the new Gold Rock resource estimate is fully correct, two tables under the heading ‘Fiore’s Reserve and Resource Inventory’ showed short tons rather than metric tonnes for the reserve and resource figures for Fiore’s Pan Mine.
The corrected tables are provided below.
Fiore’s Reserve and Resource Inventory
With the newly updated Gold Rock mineral resource estimate, Fiore’s Reserve and Resource Inventory now consists of:
|Pan – Proven||6,740,000||0.62||0.018||137,000|
|Pan – Probable||12,264,000||0.45||0.013||182,000|
|Total Proven + Probable||19,004,000||0.51||0.015||318,000|
*Reserves at Pan are as at March 16, 2017 and have not been adjusted for mining depletion
*Numbers in the table have been rounded to reflect the accuracy of the estimate and may not sum due to rounding.
|Measured & Indicated|
|Pan – Measured||8,184,000||0.62||0.018||159,000|
|Pan – Indicated||19,091,000||0.45||0.013||275,000|
|Gold Rock – Indicated||9,006,900||0.82||0.024||238,700|
|Total Measured + Indicated||36,281,900||0.58||0.017||672,700|
*Resources at Pan are as at February 10, 2017, are inclusive of Pan Mineral Reserves, and have not been adjusted for mining depletion
*Numbers in the table have been rounded to reflect the accuracy of the estimate and may not sum due to rounding
*Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves. Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
