New Jersey Mining Releases President’s Letter to Shareholders

 -- Published: Tuesday, 22 November 2016 | Print  | Disqus 

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Nov. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Jersey Mining Company (NJMC) (“NJMC” or the “Company”) today distributed the following Letter to Shareholders from NJMC President John Swallow:

Dear Fellow Shareholders,

What a difference a year makes – in both our industry and our company. As we stated before, we are firm believers that a great Company can be built during difficult times and 2016 has proven to be a significant year for our Company’s growth. Taking the path less traveled, we chose to focus on the dedication of our team and confidence in the potential of our assets.

After consolidating ownership at the Golden Chest and adding a potential follow-on project at Butte Highlands, the directors and officers of our Company furthered their commitment by foregoing compensation and taking the lead as the largest investor in our forward gold sale in order to advance open-pit development and production.

Today the Company has become an emerging gold producer and is poised to capitalize on its 2016 accomplishments with increased production from the Golden Chest, processing at the New Jersey Mill and advancement of a plan at Butte Highlands. Adding to this foundation are exploration efforts at the Golden Chest which we feel could significantly increase the mine life. The recent discovery of the high-grade Steven’s Vein, continuity of the open-pit ore, and re-alignment of the Idaho Fault have aided in the analysis of prior exploration data and greatly increased our understanding of the project and its upside potential.

Year-to-date 2016 Highlights

  • Consolidated 100% ownership in Golden Chest Mine.
  • Developed Golden Chest open-pit and underground mine plan.
  • Commenced open-pit mining, processing ore at the mill and dewatering at Golden Chest.
  • Increased the number of identified ore shoots from three to seven, indicating significant potential to increase mine life and resource at Golden Chest.
  • Acquired 50% interest in Butte Highlands Joint Venture as potential follow-on project (an advanced-stage project with approximately $39 million in prior development).
  • Optimized and prepared New Jersey Mill for processing Golden Chest ore.

With 2016 almost behind us and the Golden Chest Mine advanced to production, our goals for 2017 are as follows;

-    Remain mindful of corporate overhead.
-    Increase company exposure and seek higher exchange listing.
-    Identify follow-on project team members.
-    Focus on the Balance Sheet and debt reduction.
-    As business plan matures, evaluate possible dividend strategy.

Golden Chest
-    Anticipate 8,000 ounces of gold production in 2017.
-    Given high-grade Stevens Vein discovery and overall grade continuity, further evaluate open pit layback and Idaho Fault surface expression and re-alignment.
-    Continue near-mine exploration and evaluation program – focus on adding ounces/years.
-    Ongoing focus on improving cash flows and cost structure at mine and mill.

Butte Highlands
-    Further outline the steps/strategy to help move BH closer to production.
-    As part of Butte Highlands Economic Feasibility Study, endeavor to implement two-phase plan to aid with metallurgical testing and possibility of permitting on-site mill.

Exploration – Central Idaho
-    Evaluate strategy to advance Central Idaho properties with focus on unlocking value and retaining production upside.

By design, every person at New Jersey Mining is either a shareholder or has stock options. We would not be advancing production at Golden Chest unless we saw considerable upside potential. And we have the same view regarding the potential at Butte Highlands.

Now that our previous ceiling has become the base from which we build, we look forward to 2017 and the opportunities and challenges in front of us. And once again, we appreciate your support.
