Lumina Gold is advancing and de-risking its Cangrejos gold-copper project in southwest Ecuador. Cangrejos has an inferred gold and copper resource of 8.5 Moz and 1 Blbs. The 2018 PEA outlined a 16 year mine life with over 370koz of gold production per year and a US$920M NPV at US$1,300 gold. The company is currently drilling with four rigs and will update its resource estimate in 2019. The new resource estimate will include Gran Bestia, a satellite deposit less than 1km away that is not included in the current resource. The resource update will also include other step-out and infill drilling, which should transition a substantial amount of the inferred to indicated. Cangrejos will advance to its next phase of economic study post its 2019 resource update.
