At the Euro project, which lies about seven kilometres south of Mercator's processing plant, a maiden resource of 2.038 million tonnes of ore at 1.3 grams of gold per tonne (for 83,600 ounces of gold) has been estimated. Further work at Euro will higher grade material, which lies at a deeper level. A structure, identified by gravity survey, immediately south of Euro is being investigated.

At the Batavia project, which lies about six kilometres north of Mercator's processing plant, a resource of 318,000 tonnes at a grade of 2.4 g/t (for 24,200 ounces of gold) has been estimated. Shallow underground workings here, in the early 1900s, produced 180 ounces of gold from 276 tonnes of ore. Batavia has the potential to provide additional feed for the processing plant in the near term. Conversion of the Prospecting Lease to a Mining Lease is well advanced.

The Company also announced the placing of convertible loan notes to raise £200,000, the notes pay 8.5% per annum, and are redeemable at par by 15 July 2011 or can be converted into ordinary shares at 50p each after the first anniversary of the loan.

Patrick Harford, MD of Mercator Gold, commented:

“The maiden resources at Euro and Batavia represent continuing efforts by Mercator to expand its inventory of resources and reserves. They also support the Company's exploration strategy, which we expect will continue to bear fruit. Batavia is expected to contribute to production in the near term, and we maintain high hopes for the future of Euro.”

Mercator successfully raises £4m to increase gold production
The funds raised will be mainly used to accelerate pre-strip of the Bluebird open pit, which has 1.7 million tonnes of ore grading 2.4 grams per tonne gold, or 133,000 ounces. Pre-stripping is expected to be complete by the final quarter of 2008.

Patrick Harford, Managing Director of Mercator Gold, added:
“Given present market conditions it is a tremendous vote of confidence in Mercator that we were able to complete this equity offering satisfactorily. The funds raised give the Company the capital it needs to accelerate the development of the Bluebird pit, which will play an integral role in our plans to grow our production substantially.”]]>
Wed, 09 Jul 2008 05:54:00 +0100
Mercator's exploration results exceeding expectations
Mercator's exploration is primarily targeting "relatively" shallow gold deposits that are amenable to open pit mining. There are eight targets at the moment, though the Company has three high priority targets, Batavia, Euro and Fenian West. Additional attention is also being devoted to Paddy's Flat which offers additional underground potential.

At the Euro prospect, a 40 hole reverse circulation programme has been completed. Drilling confirmed the continuity of the gold mineralisation between approximately 20 and 100 metres. Highlights included 12 metres at 2.9 grams per tonne from 97 metres, 5 metres at 6.1 grams per tonne from 97 metres and 18 metres at 3.2 grams per tonne from 99 metres. Mercator will now conduct an economic evaluation of the top 100 metres of oxide mineralisation, and there are plans in place to conduct further scout drilling south of Euro after several anomalies were identified by a recent gravity survey.

Further down the road, Mercator has started to receive drill results from the Batavia prospect. Results included an impressive 8 metres grading 20.2 grams per tonne from 86 metres, including 2 metres at 72.4 grams per tonne. Other intersects included 8 metres at 1.6 grams per tonne from 85 metres and 4 metres at 4.1 grams per tonne from 114 metres.

Along strike from the Prohibition deposit, drilling at Fenian West suggested "significant" continuity of mineralisation between to the two deposits, offering the possibility of Fenian West being exploited in the same time as the upper portion of Prohibition. Highlights included 7 metres at 4 grams per tonne from 58 metres and 7 metres at 3 grams per tonne at 72 metres.

Patrick Harford, MD, elaborated:

"The exploration component of Mercator's strategy to rejuvenate the Meekatharra Goldfield is continuing to pay off, with the results so far exceeding expectations. It is the view of the Company that the range of exploration targets detailed here offers outstanding potential, and in time we expect to benefit from new options for production as well as to bolster our reserve and resource numbers."
Thu, 15 May 2008 11:20:00 +0100
Mercator Gold production up 37.5%
The company said it was now pre-stripping the Bluebird pit in anticipation of it supplying feed to the plant during the second quarter, and de-watering the Consols pit had begun in preparation of the construction of a decline into the Prohibition-Vivian-Consols ore bodies.

Patrick Harford, MD of Mercator Gold, said:

“Gold production from the Surprise pit is increasing in line with expectations as higher grade material is mined from the pit’s deeper levels. Costs of production during the first quarter were within the targeted range and the Company made good progress with regard to its development activities.”

Mercator completes sale of non-core assets
Patrick Harford, Managing Director of Mercator Gold

"The tenements sold to Silver Swan are not contiguous with Mercator's core project areas, which include the producing Surprise open pit operation and the planned Bluebird open pit and Prohibition-Vivian-Consols underground developments.

The sale to Silver Swan is expected to allow that potential to be more quickly realised whilst still delivering substantial benefits to Mercator."]]>

Mercator Gold in takeover talks ]]> Thu, 17 Apr 2008 09:01:00 +0100 Mercator Gold keeps working away in Australia Mercator said that it now expected to produce 200,000 ounces over the next 20 months, bang on target with its original ambition of 120,000 ounces per annum.

Tue, 01 Apr 2008 23:00:00 +0100
Mercator posts inline interim results
Mercator produced 7,028 ounces of gold netting an average selling price of A$912/ounce (US$806/ounce) to generate revenues of A$6.4 million. The group posted a loss of $3.5 million, which was widely expected as the company moved into gold production in the second half of 2007.

Other highlights from the interims included confirmation that the company would list on the ASX in the next 3 months, and that it had divested of its non-core land holding at Meekatharra into Silver Swan Group (ASX: SSW) for a 30% equity stake.

Patrick Harford, Managing Director of Mercator Gold said:

"These results cover a landmark period in Mercator's development that has seen the Company commence commercial gold production and continue to lay the groundwork for considerable growth in its output over the coming years. The Company is in excellent shape, focusing on production, growth and exploration in
Meekatharra according to plan."

Mercator releases gold production guidance
Mercator added that is had experienced "upward pressure" on its costs, like the rest of the mining industry. Of particular note, the cost of diesel increased 20%. As a result, Mercator confirmed that it had revised its life of mine cash costs for production to US$518 per ounce, but this could fall to US$481/ounce if production is increased from the Surprise pit, as it is located closest to the plant. The company also restated its flexibility in mixing different ores and the effect that would have on head grades gave it flexibility to adjust to a varying gold price.

As a precaution, the company also sold calls over 35,000 ounces of gold at A$906 per ounce for delivery between February and September and puts at a similar price for a further 35,000 ounces.

On the exploration front, the Euro Project, Fenian West and Paddy's Flat all continued to receive the attention of the drill bit.

Managing Director, Patrick Harford, said:

"Our Meekatharra operation is up and running. We look forward to strong production from our open cut operations and will soon start the development of our underground reserves. Exploration at the very soft oxide Euro Project continues to be promising. Further work there and on the deeper high grade zones at Paddy's Flat should strengthen the Company's resource base over the coming months."

Mercator Gold sells non-core exploration leases
ASX listed Silver Swan will issue 10,000,000 fully paid A$0.20 shares to Mercator, plus 4,000,000 Silver Swan performance shares. Mercator's initial shareholding of ten million represents approximately 30% of the issued capital of Silver Swan. Dr Susan Vearncombe, former General Manager-Geology of Mercator Gold, will become the MD of Silver Swan.

Managing Director of Mercator Gold, Patrick Harford, said:

"The rational for the sale is the tenements, none of which are contiguous with Mercator's core holdings covering the Paddy's Flat, Yaloginda, Nannine and Reedy areas, contain numerous base metals and gold prospects that require significant exploration to develop their full potential; the sale to Silver Swan will allow that potential to be quickly realised whilst delivering significant benefits to Mercator's shareholders; and Silver Swan presently has A$2.4 million available for exploration expenditure and is expected to aggressively develop the potential of the tenement package."

Mercator hints at ASX listing
Mercator reported a loss for the year, widely expected as the company has only recently started gold production at its Meekatharra Gold Project in Australia. Mercator expect to produce 120,000 ounces of gold in the first 12 months of operation at a cash cost equivalent to 50% of the prevailing gold price.

Terry Strapp, Chairman of Mercator said in his annual report to shareholders that 2007 had been a 'landmark year' for the company as it completed is mission of becoming a gold producer without any environmentally negative incidents or lost time injuries. Other major achievements included an increase in the gold resource to approximately 2.44 million ounces from 2.16 million ounces, first gold pour, and the discovery of a new gold zone at the Euro prospect.

Mercator Gold raises £2.6m in convertibles
The notes pay interest of 8.5% per annum and can be redeemed by 16th October 2010 or converted into to ordinary shares in the Company at escalating conversion rates: 95p per share in the first year of issue and 120p per share in the second year of their issue.

The funds will be used to speed up pre-stripping at the Bluebird deposit and to drill the company's new discovery - the Euro project.

The company also reported that the commissioning of the Bluebird Mill is advancing smoothly with production ramping up according to schedule. Mill throughput of up to 240t/hour has been achieved and metallurgical recoveries have exceeded the planned levels of 90%.

Patrick Harford, MD of Mercator Gold, said:

"Mercator is keen to proceed with the opening up of the Bluebird Pit and to drill the Euro Project. These projects will underpin the Company's objective of producing 120,000 ounces of gold over the next 12 months."]]>
Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:48:00 +0100
Mercator pours first gold
The company also detailed its plans for the Euro Project, a new east-west trending gold mineralisation that has created significant interest from commentators. The Euro Project has sparked interest as the gold is trending in against all other known occurrences at Meekatharra which are north-south. Mercator said it intended to conduct a diamond, reverse circulation and rotary air blast drilling program to better understand the geology, confirm the company's own interpretation and define an initial JORC compliant resource.

Mercator's Managing Director, Mr Patrick Harford, said:

"After several years rebuilding the asset base at Meekatharra, Mercator is ready to put the district 'back to work'. We wish to thank our shareholders for their support and assure them that we will do our best to ensure that Mercator's operations form a profitable and sustainable base on which the Company can continue to grow. Our exploration potential is high both at the new greenfields Euro Project and in all directions around the Prohibition-Vivian-Consols ore bodies at Paddy's Flat and we look to the future with confidence and excitement."

Shares in Mercator were marked up 2 pence to 88.5 pence on the good news.

Mercator to pour first gold in 10 days
Mercator said the newly commissioned plant was processing 150 tonnes per hour and that first gold pour would occur in the next 10 days.

Mercator re-iterated its target of 120,000 ounces of gold production in the first 12 months from three pits. Mercator also upgraded its probable ore reserves by 17% to 504,000 ounces, primarily from the conversion of indicated resources in the Fatts and Mudlode ore bodies which are part of the underground deposits that will be mined.

On the exploration front, Mercator completed four diamond drill holes into an area east of the current known mineralisation, named Euro. Results included 1 metre @ 93.4 grams per tonne, 3 metres @ 23.8 grams per tonne and 10 metres @ 5 grams per tonne.

"We have recently completed the commissioning of the plant and, with the commencement of commercial gold production only days away, Mercator is set to join the ranks of international gold producers at an exciting time for the gold sector" added Managing Director, Patrick Harford "In addition to our move into commercial production, the increase in probable reserves announced today and the promising new gold discoveries at the nearby Euro project highlight the potential for the Company to build on its strong production base and significantly expand its gold operations and reserve position."

Wed, 19 Sep 2007 01:31:00 +0100
Mercator Gold is Almost an Aussie mid-tier gold producer. The majority of gold companies listed here, or abroad, never have and probably never will, produce gold in any meaningful amounts. So all the more credit goes to Mercator for identifying a historic gold mine that had the potential to be put back into production.

In the year starting 1 October 2007, the Company plans to produce 120,000 ounces of gold. The company will not be able to advise on likely costs of production until the end of commissioning.

Denis Geldard, Mercators COO, said:

"We will have two open pits within 1,000 meters of the run of mine stockpile, which will provide feedstock for the next two years of operation, followed by extensive underground reserves which
are still being updated as design work proceeds. We have a state of art refurbished processing plant and an experienced team of people in place which, together with a portfolio of brown fields' and green fields' exploration targets, places Mercator Gold in a very commanding position going forward."

Mercator Gold upgrades reserve statement, expects production start next week
Mercator has been developing the mining operation for the past year and finally looks set to reap the rewards of continued robust metal prices. The company also said that it had finalised metallurgical and mining studies on the Bluebird, Surprise, Prohibition and Vivian pits and said it now had probable reserves of 432,000 ounces of gold.

Mining will commence with the Surprise pit, where the gold oxide material is relatively soft and lies only 800 metres from the Yaloginda plant. Mercator said the Yaloginda Carbon in Leach (CIL) processing plant was "on track" to treat ore on July 1st.

Mercator will also use ore from the Bluebird pit shortly afterwards to blend with the Surprise ore to smooth out gold grades. The Bluebird pit lies only 1000 metres from Yaloginda and is in close proximately to waste pits, which gives the two pits the most favourable economics due to short haulage distances to and from the plant. Mercator expects combined ore production from Bluebird and Surprise to rise to an annualised gold output of 120,000 ounces at a process rate of 1.25 million tonnes per annum - still well below the maximum 3 million tonne per annum capacity of Yaloginda.

"The Reserve base underpins our decision to recommence production at Meekatharra with 432,000oz of Reserves. In addition, the ongoing Resources to Reserve work currently being undertaken at a number of locations will further strengthen the company's growth platform. We look forward to a truly profitable and sustainable future." commented Patrick Harford, Managing Director of Mercator.

Shares in Mercator rose 3.5% to 86 pence.

Mercator Gold expects to start gold production in June
Mercator acquired the historical mining camp, including the Yaloginda CIL plant in 2004/2005 with the intention of moving the project back into production. For the past eighteen months attention has been focused on refurbishing the plant, proving up additional reserves through extensive drilling and establishing a new mine plan.

Managing Director Patrick Harford added “The board believes that the Surprise, Prohibition and Vivian-Consols deposits now form the basis of a sustainable future for Mercator. Production of an initial 120,000 ounces in our first full year, coupled with vigorous exploration and development schedules will strengthen the production profile of the company.”

Mercator Gold is Re-establishing Meekatharra Gold District The mine should produce 90,000 ounces of gold in 2007 rising to 120,000 ounces in 2008; the ore will be sourced from the Bluebird and Surprise pits - both contain soft oxides which are relatively simple to mine. Cash costs are currently forecast at A$350/ounce (US$260) which puts the mine smack dab in the middle of the cost curve.
