Abcourt announces the re-start of mining activities at the elder mine and the re-opening of the sleeping giant mill

Abcourt Mines Inc. (TSX-V: ABI, Berlin: AML-BE and Frankfurt Stock Exchanges: AML-FF) (“Abcourt” or the “Mines Abcourt inc.) is pleased to announce the re-start of mining activities at the Elder mine following the addition of mines by the Quebec government to the priority list of services. The Sleeping Giant mill will be re-opened early next week.

We have prepared a management plan for sanitary measures according to the interim recommendations of prevention measures concerning the exploitation of mines by the National Institute of public health. Following a first call-back to work, 75% of miners came in yesterday. We believe that those absent will come when they learn that the mine is open and that all sanitary recommendations are respected. The re-start of mining operations will enable us to profit from the important increase in the price of gold in recent weeks


Abcourt Mines Inc. is a gold producer and a Canadian exploration company with strategically located properties in northwestern Quebec, Canada. The Elder property has gold resources (2018) and a positive P.E.A. study (2012). Abcourt is focusing on the exploitation of the Elder mine.

The Abcourt-Barvue property has silver–zinc reserves (2019). A feasibility study was completed in 2007 by Roche / Genivar. An update was completed in January 2019. A total of 8.07 M tonnes of proven and probable reserves with a grade of 51.79 g/t of silver and 2.83 % zinc are available to be mined. About 81.6 % of the tonnes are mineable by open pit and 18.4 % will be mined underground. The infered resources total 2.07 M tonnes with a grade of 114.16 g/t of silver and 2.89 % zinc.

In 2016, Abcourt acquired the Sleeping Giant mine and mill, located half-way between Amos and Matagami, in Abitibi, Quebec, in the territory covered by the Plan Nord of the Quebec government. The mill has a capacity of 700 to 750 tonnes per day. A NI 43-101 resource estimate was first completed. A feasibility study was recently completed and most of the resources were converted to proven and probable reserves. A surface drilling program is planned.
