San José de Gracia

San José de Gracia, located in the northeast portion of Sinaloa State, Mexico, is a high-grade advanced stage gold project. Goldgroup holds a 50% interest in DynaResource de Mexico, S.A. de C.V., which owns 100% of San José de Gracia. In November 2011, Goldgroup announced an updated NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate on the San José de Gracia project based on an additional 172 drill holes. This updated NI 43-101 Technical Report hosts an Indicated Resource at the Tres Amigos vein of 147,000 oz Au (913,000 tonnes grading 5.00 g/t Au) and an aggregate Inferred Resource at all four veins of 963,000 oz Au (5.8 million tonnes grading 5.16 g/t Au). This updated mineral resource estimate will be used to support a future Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) for mining. Goldgroup is currently reviewing strategic alternatives for development for the San Jose de Gracia project. Goldgroup hopes to find a resolution to recent legal disputes with DynaResource Inc.

Cerro Colorado

Goldgroup owns a 100% interest in the Cerro Colorado gold mine, located in northern Sonora, Mexico. Cerro Colorado produced approximately 15,000 ounces of gold in 2013 and 2012. Goldgroup ceased mining operations at Cerro Colorado in July 2014 and the leach pads have now been rinsed.

Goldgroup began small-scale trial mining and leaching in December 2013 and is working to ramp-up mining operations to commercial production rates.

An updated National Instrument 43-101 Measured and Indicated and Inferred mineral resource estimate for the Cerro Prieto Project was prepared in the first half of 2013.

Mineral Resource Estimate Highlights:
  • Measured Mineral Resources in veins (Table 1) comprised of 1.18 million tonnes grading 1.56 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, 30.28 g/t silver, 0.15% lead and 0.33% zinc for a total of approximately 59,000 ounces of gold
  • Indicated Mineral Resources in veins (Table 2) comprised of 4.92 million tonnes grading 1.03 g/t gold, 22.12 g/t silver, 0.32% lead and 0.80% zinc for a total of approximately 163,000 ounces of gold
