:: Merit has Permits in Hand for Commercial Production at Lexington-Grenoble

Merit Mining of Vancouver has received the operating permits for its Lexington-Grenoble gold mine and 200 t/d Greenwood mill. A bulk sample is now being treated, but with the permits the mining and milling rate can be expanded to the permitted rate.

Merit's 100%-owned Greenwood gold project, located between Greenwood and Grand Forks in south-central British Columbia, is comprised of the Lexington-Grenoble mine, the Golden Crown deposit and the Lone Star deposit plus the central 200-t/d gravity-flotation mill and tailings facility. The company intends to develop each deposit to production starting with the Lexington-Grenoble mine.

The three deposits contain approximately 465,000 tonnes of resources. The measured and indicated resource for the Lexington-Grenoble deposit (to be mined first) is 297,000 tonnes grading 8.36 g/t Au and 1.35% Cu. The Golden Crown deposit has indicated resources of 105,000 tonnes at 13.78 g/t Au and 0.55% Cu. The Lone Star deposit contains an indicated resource of 63,000 tonnes at 1.46 g/t Au and 2.00% Cu.
