VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Novo Resources Corp. ( “Novo” or the “Company” ) (TSX: NVO, NVO.WT & NVO.WT.A) (OTCQX: NSRPF) wishes to advise that operations have resumed at its Golden Eagle processing facility (“ Golden Eagle Mill ”).
As announced on November 1, 2021 , the Golden Eagle Mill underwent opportunistic maintenance for approximately seven days while the Company repaired its main crushing unit after encountering additional wear during routine scheduled maintenance. Crusher repairs are now complete, and the Golden Eagle Mill was re-started today as a result.
Mining operations continued during the shut, and stockpiles have increased to approximately 370,000 tonnes as a result, putting the operation in a strong position leading into the wet season.
In addition, the Company advises that the first phase of a raise to its tailings storage facility is complete and the requisite operating licence has been issued by the Western Australian Department of Water and Environmental Regulation. This phase will provide approximately 12 months of processing capacity. Completion of the second phase is scheduled for early 2022. This second phase will provide approximately another 12 months of processing capacity, in addition to the 12 months provided by the first phase.
Novo operates its flagship Beatons Creek gold project while exploring and developing its prospective land package covering approximately 13,250 square kilometres in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. In addition to the Company’s primary focus, Novo seeks to leverage its internal geological expertise to deliver value-accretive opportunities to its shareholders.
