Latest Developments
Rox Resources has updated the mineral resource estimate, confirming Youanmi as one of the highest-grade emerging gold projects in Australia.

Youanmi has a total resource of 2.3-million ounces at 4.4 g/t gold.

The new estimate has delivered a 20% increase in the overall indicated resource to 1.56-million ounces at 4.5 g/t gold and a 48% increase in the underground indicated resource to 1.1-million ounces at 6.1 g/t gold.

"Internally, we targeted a conversion of 200 000 oz to 300 000 oz of inferred to indicated resources and this update has delivered an increase in the underground indicated resource of 359 000 oz, providing an exceptional foundation for the upcoming prefeasibility study (PFS),” MD Robert Ryan as said.

Studies are under way and that the PFS will be completed in June 2024.
