Adamus Resources Limited - October 2011 Pictorial Update

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

PERTH, Western Australia, Nov. 3, 2011 /CNW/ - During October, Adamus Resources Limited (Adamus) (ASX and TSXV: ADU) reported that positive drill results were received from resource definition drilling at the Nfutu prospect (6kms west of the plantsite) which remains open on strike.  This supports Adamus' strategy of exploring satellite deposits and identifying a resource pipeline.

OPERATIONS

  • Mining during the month focussed on Salman South 1A and North 1A.  Unseasonal rainfall continued throughout the month resulting in lower than forecast tonnes mined.  Additional trucks will be added to the mining fleet, allowing increased daily mining rates during the dry season to add tonnages to the ROM stockpiles.
  • Stone pitching on Akango Phase I haul road completed, Phase II commenced.  Phase II haul road sheeted, culverts completed and commissioned for use.  Corridor clearing for Phase III in progress.
  • Construction of the explosives magazine fencing and storage area in progress.  Preparatory works for tailings dam lift continued.
  • Salman Village construction progresses well with 85% of residential buildings completed.

EXPLORATION

  • 47 holes were drilled at Nfutu to infill previous drilling and convert the mineral resource from the Inferred category to Measured and Indicated.  The drilling confirmed the continuity of gold mineralisation within two distinct mineralised zones, which are similar in appearance to the Teleku Bokazo deposit located 2.5km to the west. The latest drilling program is expected to result in an increase to the existing mineral resource estimate, with a mineral resource update to be available Q4 2011.
  • Hotopo infill drilling (31 holes for 2,974m) completed and rig mobilised to Salman.  Pad preparation completed at Nugget Hill (16), Teberu (2), Salman SW (11) and Salman SE (4) for oxide drill program to commence in November 2011.

CORPORATE

  • The Company released its Quarterly Activities Report for the quarter ended 30 September 2011.  Adamus exceeded production targets for the 2nd continuous quarter and positive operating cashflow of $6.75M was achieved for the 3 months ended 30 September 2011.

In August 2011 the Company announced its intention to merge with Endeavour Mining Corporation.  Endeavour owns the Youga Gold Mine in Burkina Faso, West Africa as well as a pipeline of exploration and development projects in the region.  If approved by Adamus and Endeavour shareholders, the merger is likely to take place in December 2011.
