The Company’s consolidated Mineral Resources are summarized as follows as at March 31, 2021.
|GRADE||CONTAINED METAL (‘000S)|
|Silver-Lead-Zinc Indicated Mineral Resources|
|Silver-Lead-Zinc Inferred Mineral Resources|
|Gold Indicated Mineral Resources|
|Gold Inferred Mineral Resources|
(1) Estimated at a cut-off grade of 275 g/t AgEq and silver, lead and zinc prices of $24.00, $0.86 and $1.10, and assuming metal recoveries of 91% for silver, 80% for lead and 80% zinc. AgEq calculated using the following formula, AgEq = Ag(g/t) + 21.60*Pb(%) + 27.63*Zn(%).
(2) Estimated at a cut-off grade of 90 g/t AgEq and silver, gold, lead and zinc prices of $17.00/oz, $1,550/oz, $0.90/lb and $1.15/lb, and assuming metal recoveries of 76% for silver, 20% for gold, 90% for lead and 88% zinc. AgEq calculated using the following formula, AgEq = Ag(g/t) + 42.99*Pb(%) + 23.99*Zn(%).
(3) Estimated at a cut-off grade of 0.21 g/t Au, gold price of $1300/oz, and assuming metal recoveries of 80%.
(4) Estimated at a cut-off grade of 0.31 g/t Au, gold price of $1200/oz, and assuming metal recoveries of 70%.
