Armistice will begin shipping ore from its McGarry gold mine to QMX
Gold's facilities in Val-d'Or Township, Quebec for milling and refining
Initial shipment of 10,000 tonnes of stockpiled ore to be followed by
subsequent batches at a minimum rate of 5,000 tonnes per month
Agreement is for at least one year and a minimum of 30,000 tonnes
TORONTO, June 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Armistice Resources Corp. (TSX: AZ),
operator of the McGarry gold mine in Ontario's Kirkland Lake area,
today announced that it has signed a custom milling agreement with QMX
Gold Corporation (TSX: QMX) to begin processing ore from its McGarry
Mine at QMX's facilities in Val-d'Or Township, Quebec.
The processing agreement is for a term of at least one year and a
minimum of 30,000 tonnes of ore to be delivered by Armistice. The
agreement commences upon Quebec regulatory approval with an initial
shipment by Armistice of 10,000 tonnes of ore, including some
development ore, which is currently stockpiled at McGarry. Subsequent
batches are to be delivered at a rate of 5,000 tonnes per month.
The milling agreement calls for QMX to provide for all the necessary
handling, sampling, crushing, grinding, processing, refining, and
"The custom milling agreement with QMX complements our plan to construct
our own gold processing plant for the McGarry mine in the future by
establishing a mutually beneficial arrangement to address our immediate
and medium-term processing requirement," said Todd J. Morgan, chief
executive officer and president of Armistice. "A distinct advantage of
this agreement is that we will be dealing with a single, experienced
partner, QMX, to meet our ore processing and gold sales requirements.
We expect this to be more efficient and more cost-effective than the
approach that we took with our initial shipment in 2012.
"Once the initial shipments of ore have completed all the stages of
processing and sales, Armistice expects to begin realizing significant
cash flow," Mr. Morgan said.
Erik Andersen, P.Eng., Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of
Armistice Resources and a Qualified Person as defined by National
Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved this news release.
