Los Angeles, December 9, 2019 — –Brookmount Explorations, Inc. (“Brookmount”), a Nevada incorporated company (OTC Pink: BMXI) is pleased to provide this update to shareholders on its operational and financial progress.
Last month, the Company filed its 3rd quarter financial results which included record quarterly revenue in excess of $1.5 million (a 50% increase on the comparable quarter last year) and operating income for the period of just under $500k. The Company’s performance has benefitted from consistently strong throughput at its Talawaan facility, in addition to the continuation of a strong gold price evident over the last 6 months.
Additionally, we are pleased to report that joint venture with our Taiwanese operating partner at Alason is progressing well. Loading of the newly completed 20,000 tons capacity leachpad is now complete, with over 20,000 tons of high grade ore excavated and transported to the pad which has now been plumbed and water is being pumped into the reservoir to be mixed with leaching chemicals. Processing is expected to commence this week, with the first result anticipated by mid month and then final processing completed by Xmas. Based on the average ore grade of 1.2g/ton, the yield from this initial cycle is anticipated at 20-25kg of phase 2 (pure) gold. The overall investment in construction and loading of the pad is approximately $500k which has been funded entirely by our operating partner. Construction of a second 20,000 tons pad, to begin in January, will enable both pads to be operated in a continuous cycle with a production approximately every 3 weeks. Further details and photos of the Alason development will be uploaded to the company’s website shortly and can be accessed on the Company’s Twitter account “@brookmountgold”.
In addition to development of its existing 17ha site at Alason, the Company is currently reviewing an opportunity to acquire a federally licensed 50ha gold property in close proximity. The property holds one of the last remaining licenses (“IUP”) issued by the Federal mining department in Jakarta and represents an attractive investment, both for operational and investment purposes.
Management will issue further updates in December.
Brookmount conducts its gold mining and processing operations through its Indonesian subsidiary incorporated in Sulawesi Province, Republic of Indonesia, one of Asia most dynamic and rapidly expanding economies with extensive reserves of natural resources and minerals including timber, coal, gold and hydrocarbons.
