Falco's genesis was from the acquisition of one of Canada's most established VMS mining camps, the Rouyn Noranda Mining Camp, including the Horne Mine Complex area (birth place of Noranda in the 1920's) and 13 other former producers. Falco Resources has 100% ownership of 74,000 hectares of property, which represents 70% of the entire camp.
Falco Resources employed a highly technical digitization and data mining strategy to move over 80 years of historical data into the 21st century. The bundling of this proprietary data with modern day technology, allowed Falco to 'rediscover' the Horne 5 deposit, culminating in a maiden NI 43-101 inferred mineral resource estimate.
On October 3, 2016, Falco reported an updated mineral resource estimate for its wholly-owned Horne 5 gold project located in Rouyn-Noranda, Québec:
Measured Resource of 736,000 gold equivalent ounces ("oz AuEq"), including 475,410 oz Au contained in 9.4 million tonnes averaging 2.45 g/t AuEq (1.58 g/t Au; 16.33 g/t Ag; 0.18% Cu; 0.81% Zn).
Indicated Resource of 6,336,000 gold equivalent ounces ("oz AuEq"), including 4,088,383 oz Au contained in 81.7 million tonnes averaging 2.41 g/t AuEq (1.56 g/t Au; 14.19 g/t Ag; 0.18% Cu; 0.86% Zn).
Inferred Resource of 1,710,000 oz AuEq, including 1,053,061 oz Au contained in 22.3 million tonnes averaging 2.39 g/t AuEq (1.47 g/t Au; 22.98 g/t Ag; 0.2% Cu; 0.68% Zn).
