Visualized Outcome: Discovery Harbour: Fortuity 89 - 1,500 tpd UG Sleeper Clone
The Fortuity 89 project owned by Discovery Harbour and optioned 75% to Newcrest is centered on a silicified outcrop within a gravel covered basin in Nevada's Walker Lane. The outcrop bears alteration evidence for the upper reaches of a low sulphidation epithermal system and has been the focus of shallow drilling in the past that failed to intersect gold mineralization. Although surface sampling yields gold values less than 50 ppb, the speculative question is whether or not this LSE system was fertile with gold. Geophysics has identified a N-S oriented structural zone with a strike of 1.6 km for which Newcrest has proposed a 7 hole RC drill program to test at depths of 300-500 m. The analogue target is the Sleeper deposit whose high grade set of veins was mined in 1986-1996 by Amax by open pit and milled with 90%-95% recovery to produce 1,219,880 oz gold. About 45 million t of lower grade stockwork ore averaging 0.7 g/t gold was heap leached with a 49% recovery to produce 438,609 oz gold. Total throughput for a mill with initial 500 tpd capacity is not available but head grade seems to have ranged 10-15 g/t annually. The lower grade material averaging 0.4 g/t still in place has been the subject of modern economic studies. Because gold at Fortuity89 is not likely to be present close enough to be open-pit mineable, only the high grade structurally controlled aspect of the Sleeper system is considered as an underground mineable target.

MSV (Market Cycle S Curve): Market Speculative Value represents the typical market pricing pattern of a new discovery as it moves through its exploration-development cycle. The irrational pricing behavior of the yellow channel contrasts with the fair speculative value of the blue channel as defined by the rational speculation model because during the pre-economic study stages there is great uncertainty about how big the discovery will turn out.

Disclaimer: A visualized outcome is one of many possible outcomes for an exploration project as it moves through the 9 stages of the exploration-development cycle from grassroots to a producing mine with failure as an outcome at any point along the way. The range of possible outcomes for the physical nature of a deposit shrinks after delivery of an initial 43-101 resource estimate. While the nature of the deposit constrains the range of mining scenarios, the cost assumptions will vary as the project moves through the feasibility demonstration stages of the cycle, which affects the economic value of the final outcome. This economic value will also vary according to the prices of the metals targeted for extraction which may change during the years it takes for a project to become a mine. An outcome visualization is thus a compilation of best guess assumptions for the key variables that drive the discounted cash flow model, the basis for assigning an economic value to a mine. An OV is not intended as a prediction, but rather as a framework that allows the incorporation of new information generated by the exploration-development cycle for the project into a valuation model on an ongoing, dynamic basis.
