As at September 30, 2019, the Company had working capital of $1.4 million, which included cash and cash equivalents of $7.0 million. The cash balance reflects the completion of a non-brokered private placement in July 2019 for net proceeds of $4.5 million. Overall current assets decreased from December 31, 2018 due to a lower inventory balance, particularly of gold-in-circuit, and lower HST receivable due to the timing of payables. Trade and other payables were down from year-end, primarily due to the ongoing payments of invoices relating to the underground bulk sample at Goldboro. Current taxes payable relate to Newfoundland mining taxes and reflect the estimated amount payable based on the first nine months of 2019. The increase in other current liabilities reflects the flow-through premium recognized as part of the non-brokered financing completed in July 2019, which included $2.6 million of flow-through financing.
The Sleeping Giant mine is located 80 km north of Amos in north-western Quebec, Canada. It is
accessible via road 109 that connects Amos to Matagami. This is a paved road and it passes less
than 1 km from the mine site. Material and services are available at competitive prices.
The mine was exploited from 1988 to 2014. It has been maintained dry since its temporary closing
in 2014 and no infrastructure has been taken out or added. Currently, the Sleeping Giant mill treats
ore from the Elder mine owned by Abcourt Mines Inc. and occasionally, some custom ore. The mill
capacity is 700 to 750 tonnes per day. The activated carbon process is used to recover gold.
Historically, the gold recovery on the Sleeping Giant ore, at that mill is 97.5%.
The tailings pond complies with all governmental regulations and the dykes and the quality of water
are checked every year by an external expert. The tailings pond has enough capacity to receive
the tailings from Elder and those from the Sleeping Giant mine as indicated in section 16 of the
technical report. The setting pond at the discharge of the tailings pond is used to treat the
discharged water according to the rules and to control the quality of the water.
