|a miss is a miss
However, if Pretium continue to struggle to make the grade (this is 4 times out of 5 that they have missed), it will put pressure on their resource model.
Still great, nothing to worry about here
The mill has very slightly under performed, but again, not a significant issue.
So this is again another quarter where Brucejack hasn't hit the expected production outlined in the PEA, they were down 17%, but management is staying positive!
So, to hit that target they need to produce in Q4, 2018:
- 107,359 to 127,359 ounces of gold by....
- maintaining a head-grade between 14.4 g/t and 17 g/t Au
Thought for the day:
If Brucejack had met the production profile in the PEA (i.e. a 'perfect' operation), it would be producing ~120Koz a quarter. Since the start of the year, Brucejack has produced ~75,000 ounces less than predicted in the FS.
I'll let you work out how much that is worth..
