Quarterly Activities & Cashflow Report
At the Cue Project, the total project gold resources (Indicated and Inferred) have increased to 6.59Mt @ 3.2g/t Au for 659koz Au following a Mineral Resource update for the Break of Day deposit announced in November 2020 that included the new Starlight discovery (see MGV ASX announcement 11 November 2020, "Break of Day High-Grade Mineral Resource Estimate"). Prefeasibility level studies have commenced at Break of Day and Lena.
During the quarter, activity on the Company's wholly owned tenure at Cue has included a large regional aircore drilling program to test new gold targets. A total of 255 holes for 17,644m of drilling was completed and identified anomalous gold in the regolith to define a new gold corridor parallel to, and west of Lena.
An initial 5,149m, 49 drill hole follow-up reverse circulation ("RC") drill program at the White Heat, Target 14 and Big Sky prospects intersected high-grade gold in all three targets. Drilling is continuing.
The exploration upside for the project is high with significant follow-up drill programs planned for the June quarter.
At the end of the March 2021 quarter, the Company held $23.8 million in cash.
