SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Ensurge, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ESGI) is pleased that the Engineering Scoping Study of the Nova Esparanza Mineraco (NME) project is underway. Jordan Estra, President & Chief Executive Officer of Ensurge, Inc. reported on the project following a visit to Brazil during mid October.
A team of geologists and drillers is currently at the NME Tuiuiu Mine, about 100 kilometers southwest of the State Capital of Cuiaba. Drilling and sampling of the tailings stockpiles has been underway for about two weeks. It is estimated that an additional four weeks will be required to complete the drilling and sampling program.
Crews are auger drilling the tailings stockpiles on 40 meter centers to a depth which is the base of the tailings, approximately 25 meters. Samples are taken every one meter of depth in each drill hole. The drilling and sampling program was designed and is being supervised by Amazon GeoServices of Belo Horizonte, Minera Gias, Brazil.
It is estimated that approximately 1,500 samples will be taken from the tailings stockpiles and theses will be assayed by Bureau Veritas of Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil. In addition, metallurgical testwork and gold recovery process development will be completed by G&T Group of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada and MQes, Inc. of San Francisco, California, USA.
Once the drilling and sampling is completed, in about four weeks time (end of November), an additional two weeks will be required to complete the assaying of samples, or mid-December. Metallurgical test work and gold recovery process development is likely to be completed by the end of January 2011. At that time, Ensurge will be able to make a decision on the NME project.
Ensurge is currently evaluating the potential of investing in producing gold mines, along with mines that only have tailings stockpiles. The Company is in preliminary discussions with property owners and if successful, Ensurge would try to achieve operating agreements to provide capital and technology to recover gold in exchange for significant percentage participation from the operations. All mines under review are in the area of Mato Grosso, Brazil.
