Coffee with Samso Episode 54 with William Potma, Exploration Manager of Matador Mining Limited (ASX: MZZ)

How do you define 120km of Gold Mineralisation?

When I look at what Matador Mining has in terms of geology, I struggle to understand how you are going to define the "motherlode". They have mineralisation all along the length of their project. The company has defined 32 target already. This is definitely a good problem to have and this is what is intriguing about the whole project.

In this episode of Coffee with Samso, Warren Potma share with us how the company is systematically working on the project. One of the imposing feature of this project is the 120 km of strike (length), where the company is continuously finding gold mineralisation. Sometime , this is an issue as you cannot focus on a single potential prize. However, as Warren points out, this is a good problem.

Exploration in the North American shield is not a walk in the park. One of the main concerns is the weather. The cold and the limited working window makes life that little bit harder. This is something that is always on my top list when deciding if a project is going to work or not, so we discussed this extensively. In addition to the weather, the geology and infrastructure plays the most critical in project evaluation.

This is a great conversation as I really was able to get a great understanding of the project from all aspects of making the project work for Matador Mining.

The Project is supported by excellent existing infrastructure including roads (15km from site), water, skilled workforce (drive in drive out) as well as workforce as well as World class, low cost grid power access (6c/KwH).

The Company released a positive Scoping Study in 2020 proposed a Mtpa standalone mining and processing operation, the Scoping Study has demonstrated potentially strong financial metrics for the Cape Ray Gold Project. The preliminary economics indicate the Project has positive financial metrics over an initial mine life of 7 years with capital payback during the first years of the Project’s life
