"We have undertaken several strategic initiatives since the end of 2019 to develop our major mining projects, including Wasamac, Beaufor, Croinor Gold, Fayolle and McKenzie Break (see press release dated January 28, 2020), which represent combined resources of more than 3.5 million ounces of gold (see table of combined gold resources)," said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer of Monarch. "These initiatives are now well under way, and we are confident that for Monarch and its shareholders, the best is yet to come."
"In terms of exploration potential, results to date for McKenzie Break suggest that the property has excellent high-grade gold potential, and we have only just started to investigate its potential at depth. Based on the internal data collected since we started exploration, we consider that McKenzie Break could become a high-quality gold deposit," added Mr. Lacoste.
