There has been limited drilling down plunge and down dip of the Existing Clavos deposit. The following historical drill holes yielded high grade intersections 300-400 metres down dip of underground workings:
CL KC99-155W - 60 g/t - between 653.3 - 654.0 metres down hole - 9.39g/t between 510-511 metres down holeCL KC99- 149W - 16.52 g/t between 526.17 and 527.37 metres down hole - 8.82g/ between 529.52 and 529.92 metres down holeCL KC99-154W - 17.4 g/t between 562.4 and 563.85 metres down hole
Sage completed a number of drill holes down plunge of the eastern end of the underground workings and one hole down dip of the centre portion of the Clavos deposit. Results were detailed in a press release on August 25, 2011. Sage has also drilled the 960, Sediment and Contact zones 600 metres east of the Existing Clavos deposit. Refer to press releases of April 26, 2011, Dec 14, 2011 and Sept 20, 2012.
The down dip, down plunge, 960, Sediment and Contact drilling indicate that there are potential economic intersections east, down dip and down plunge of the Existing Clavos deposit. This study has not considered the potential economic impact of these new mineralized zones except to plan for exploration drilling and primary development costs to support the development of additional new resources.
A PEA is not to be interpreted as either a Preliminary Feasibility or a Feasibility Study. This PEA type of study can also be referenced as a Scoping Study and thus may contain results of an economic analysis that includes and is based upon inferred mineral resources.
The PEA will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days after being released and will also be available on the corporate website at www.sagegoldinc.com.
