Eldorado Gold Corporation to invest USD 20 mln for future mine in Certej

certejThe Eldorado Gold Corporation, a Canadian gold producer seeking to open an open pit mine in Certej, Apuseni Mountains, announced its plans to invest some USD 20 million locally this year. The money will go into “continuing infrastructure projects, advancing permitting and support engineering as defined in the 2015 Feasibility Study”, according to Business-Review.eu.

The company has spent some USD 15.8 million last year in Romania, “mainly on geotechnical and metallurgical testing, site preparation and engineering studies”. In total, Eldorado announces, it has spent USD 30 million on exploration activities, which were conducted at 17 projects including early-stage, brownfields and in-mine programs in Turkey, China, Brazil, Greece and Romania and included 58,000 meters of drilling.

“In Romania, five exploration projects were drilled in the Certej area. A total of 5,100 meters of drilling were completed at the Muncel VMS deposit aimed at identifying gold-rich areas within the base metal system. At Magura, 8,900 meters of drilling targeted down-dip and along-strike extensions of high-grade veins that were historically explored in underground workings. At the newly acquired Certej North exploration license, 4,700 meters of drilling were completed intersecting broad zones of peripheral porphyry and epithermal-style alteration/mineralization. Drilling programs also tested the P. Avram prospect (1,700 meters) and porphyry targets on the Deva exploration license (650 meters),” a company statement reads.
