Introduction

Deep Valley Gold Inc. (DVG) is a private mineral exploration company that focuses on high grade low tonnage placer projects with low mining costs and potentially high profit margins. The company was formed in 2010 after two years of placer research and field studies with the main goal of generating a constant pipeline of quality placer projects suitable for rapid development mining operations.

DVG has the following projects available for option: Cariboo River, Umiti Creek, John Boyd Creek and Gun Creek (permitted).



Placer Mining Costs Calculator

All-inclusive mining costs in the table below were calculated using a comprehensive SHERPA for Placer Mines.
Even though the costs were estimated based on property specific criteria and included mob-demob, camp facilities, development, mining and reclamation, they are provided for general guidelines only.

If you would like to get an accurate mining costs estimation, we suggest you to use SHERPA Software and provide your own values for administrative, engineering and labour costs, placer deposit and mine site specific parameters, mining, processing and ancillary equipment along with other parameters related to your planned placer operation.

Feel free to modify production capacity and grade in the mini-calculator below and review mining costs
per gold ounce.

Comparing to Hard-rock and Evaluating Risks

The calculator below is provided for evaluating investments risks and potential revenue based on gold spot price, projected gold grade, deposit size and mining costs.
Deposit size estimation is offered by assuming reserves sufficient to keep busy a small crew with a single washing plant during a mining season.
Mining Costs per gold ounce is calculated using SHERPA for Placer Mines.
Revenue is calculated based on mining costs minus royalty paid to property owner.

The calculator is not intended to give an accurate estimation that would depend on many specific criteria (e.g. confirmed deposit parameters, selected equipment, mining plan, etc...). However, it allows to evaluate projected revenue by modifying input parameters and compare placer targets with modern hard-rock mining operations.

Our Cariboo neighbours

Over the last few years more companies, attracted by high grade deposits, became involved in placer activities in the Cariboo:

4 Depending on the project, the projected average grade is expected to be higher, similar or lower than the grade returned by hand sampling.
   Please see project descriptions for gold grade, returned by hand sampling.

5 34.55 g/m3 is an average gold grade across the buried stream channel. Some samples returned grades over 71.35 g/m3.
