PERTH, Western Australia, Nov. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Chalice Gold Mines ("Chalice" or "The Company") ASX:CHNTSX:CXN advises that, as a result of a review by staff of the Ontario Securities Commission, the Company issues the following news release to clarify aspects of the Company's disclosure.
Chalice completed the acquisition of the Cameron Gold Project from Coventry Resources Inc. ("Coventry") in February 2014. In the Company's corporate presentation included on the Company's website titled "Well funded, Experienced Exploration and Development Company" dated February 2014 ("the Corporate Presentation"), reference is made to the Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") relying on a previously filed Technical Report prepared for Coventry in February 2013.
Under the National Instrument 43-101, Chalice was required to file a Technical Report for the Cameron Gold Project within 180 days of acquiring the asset. A Technical Report was subsequently filed by Chalice on July 28, 2014. The Technical Report included a revised Mineral Resource estimate for the Cameron Gold Project but did not include a PEA.
To the best of the Company's knowledge and belief, there is no new material scientific or technical information that would make the disclosure of the results of the Coventry PEA relating to the Cameron Gold Project inaccurate or misleading. However, as Chalice has not updated or prepared a revised PEA for inclusion in its Technical Report filed in July 2014, reliance should not be placed on the PEA disclosures made in the Corporate Presentation. As such, the Company will not refer to the economic results of the Coventry PEA in future disclosures.
This clarifying news release is authorised by Tim Goyder the Managing Director of the Company.
