George Frangeskides, Executive Chairman of Alba Mineral Resources #ALBA discusses the pitting and sampling programme scheduled to commence shortly at the historic waste rock dump at the Clogau-St David's Gold Mine, where an initial sampling exercise in 2021 returned gold grades of up to 9.89 g/t.

George Frangeskides, Executive Chairman of Alba Mineral Resources #ALBA discusses the pitting and sampling programme scheduled to commence shortly at the historic waste rock dump at the Clogau-St David's Gold Mine, where an initial sampling exercise in 2021 returned gold grades of up to 9.89 g/t.

Key Points
· Follow-up pitting and sampling exercise to commence shortly at waste dump, focusing on higher-grade zones 

· Clearance for pitting and sampling exercise received from the competent Mineral Planning Authority and Natural Resources Wales (NRW)  

· Five pits are to be dug within an area of 400m² with 60 kg samples of fines material from each pit submitted for independent assaying 

· Assuming assay values in line with first sampling phase, Alba intends to process a larger volume of the excavated fines through its existing gravity plant to extract the gold content and, thereafter, to submit a plan to mine and process the higher-grade section of the dump 

· Entire waste dump estimated to hold up to 5,000 tonnes of fines material which has the potential to be mined at low cost
