WGE Holdings Corp. Press Release:
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WGE Holdings Corp. (WGEE), to be renamed Consolidated Gold Holdings, today announced it has signed a preliminary purchase agreement to acquire a 65 percent interest in an established deep shaft gold mining operation located in Luzon, the largest island in the Philippines, with an option to acquire the remaining interest over a five-year period. The transaction is expected to be completed by year end.
The facility, one of the most successful gold mines in the Luzon region, includes a 300-meter vertical shaft with lift, horizontal shafts, crushers, high-capacity ball mill, floatation tanks, on-site smelting, laboratory, crew accommodation and medical center facilities, as well as more than 200 hectares of high-grade volcanic ore. Initial production is estimated at 1,500 tons of ore per month, with an estimated average yield of six grams per ton — representing an initial production of 9 kg per month and approximately $400,000 per month based on current prices.
Extensive geological reviews have been performed on the property by JORC-qualified geologists and remaining recoverable reserves are estimated to be one million ounces, or $1.4 billion at current prices.
The proposed acquisition follows solid operational results for the quarter ended June 30, with the company reporting revenues of $1,020,000 compared with $279,000 for the preceding seven months since the company’s inception. Net profit for the quarter was $422,000 compared with $65,000 for the preceding period.
