West Red Lake Gold Mines (TSXV: WRLG.V) filed a National Instrument 43-101 technical report on its West Red Lake Project containing a mineral resource estimate (MRE) on the Mount Jamie Mine, Pipestone Bay Gold deposit and Rowan Mine Project today.

The report was called “Technical Report and Resource Estimate on the West Red Lake Project.” It employed a 3D block model using an inverse distance squared method to extrapolate grades.

The company used Dassault Systemes, Geovia GEMS version 6.5 as the software for all geostatistical analysis and computation. The estimates are from October 31, 2022 and were created with a series of parameters in mind. These include the price of gold at USD$1,600 with the exchange rate between USD and CAD being CAD$0.78. Also, the report included a block cutoff rate of 3.8 gpt Au.
