Projects

Siribaya Mali West Aftrica

Located in southwestern Mali, West Africa, the Siribaya Project consists of six contiguous exploration permits covering 800 square kilometers. Merrex is the largest contiguous permit holder in Mali. The property has over 100 kilometres of gold anomalous structural lineaments, many which have not yet been explored. The project is located 50 kilometres south of the town of Kenieba, in the administrative region of Kayes, Mali. (click here for map of permit area)

West Africa has in recent years been the world's fastest growing area for discovery, development, and production of gold, with Mali at the forefront.

Merrex has established a permanent, well equipped exploration camp adjacent to the town of Berekegni, roughly 50 kilometres south of the town of Kenieba. During the dry season, the Berekegni camp is accessed via dirt road from Kenieba, where a government owned airstrip is serviced by regular flights from Bamako, as well as being available for chartered aircraft. Kenieba is also linked to Bamako by rail.

The properties are traversed by the Faleme River, which provides ample water for exploration activities and would be sufficient to support mining activities should the project advance to the exploitation phase.

The Siribaya Mega-structure has a NI43-101 resource estimate of 4,015,000 tonnes grading 2.39 g/t Indicated (308,200 oz Au) and 946,000 tonnes grading 2.29 g/t Inferred (69,500 oz Au). The NI43-101 resource is open to the north, south and at depth. These numbers are solely based on data gathered to date along 800 metres of Zone 1B and 50 metres of Zone 1A, which serves to highlight the potential for a very significant gold resource at Siribaya.

Over $13 million has been spent in exploration at Siribaya since 2005. Additionally, previous operators spent more than $1 million in the project area during the mid 1990s.

MERREX / IAMGOLD OPTION AGREEMENT

In December 2008, Merrex closed an Option Agreement with IAMGOLD pursuant to which IAMGOLD may incur up to CDN$10.5 million in exploration expenditures over 4 years, to earn a 50% interest in the Siribaya Gold Project, of which approximately $5.5 million has been spent to date. The current exploration program will satisfy IAMGOLD's 2010 exploration obligation. IAMGOLD is the Project Operator.

(click here for December 2008 news release)

OWNERSHIP

Merrex controls 100% of the Siribaya Project until IAMGOLD spending on the property reaches $8.0 million. At that time IAMGOLD will earn 30%, with the balance earned once $10.5 million in spending is reached. The government of Mali will have an automatic free carried interest of 10% as well as the option to gain a 10% participating interest should the project advance to the exploitation phase.

written by Brian Boutilier, February 25, 2012
What impressed me here is the Siribaya trend being explored. They posted a small resource on Jan 2010. It represents only a tiny percentage of the trend that have put two more seasons of drilling into. Since then IAMgold has earned in 30% with 10M dollars expended with a variety of diamond and infill drilling seasons. They have another 12M planned this year. What is impressive, is that all this exploration is being accomplished without diluting the share structure @ 118M S/O. A resource update is due this year, and will significantly raise the resource tonnage, and likely the grade. Pent up value. IAM gold has two operations in Mali. This would likely be a third in development in the not too distant future.
