Lubuk Mandi Gold Mine

The Lubuk Mandi Gold Mine is located near the State capital of Terengganu in Peninsular Malaysia and covers 221 heactares and includes over a million tonnes of tailings which has significant potential for early gold production through the development and recommissioning of the mining operations with joint venture partners Angka Alamjaya Sendirian Berhad (AASB) and provides development funding options.

The Lubuk Mandi Gold Mine, which was previously owned and operated by government body Terengganu State Economic Development, in the mid 90’s, produced 108,000 ounces of gold from two shallow pits.  The existing processing plant is rated at 300,000 tpa and involves single stage crushing to a stockpile and mill. The mine and processing plant have been on care and maintenance since 2000.

In early 2013 GBM conducted due diligence and developed a business plan to develop the project and recommence mining operations.

The project has three identified sources of mineralised material that may provide ore for future mining and treatment.  Exploration targets comprises of:

  • Tailings Damexploration target between 1 Mt at 0.7 g/t Au containing 23,000 oz Au, and 1.4Mt at 0.9 g/t
  • Main Zoneexploration target between 370,000 tonnes averaging 2.9 g/t Au containing 35,000 oz Au and 1,100,000t averaging 3.6 g/t Au containing 127,000 oz Au
  • East Zone – exploration target between 1,440,000 tonnes averaging 2.5 g/t Au containing 116,000 oz Au and 2,400,000 tonnes averaging 3.6 g/t Au containing 280,000 oz Au.

Total JORC exploration target for the project is estimated to contain between 174,000 and 443,000 ounces of gold.
