This year an NI 43-101 resource estimate for the project based on 2011 and 2012 drilling has doubled gold ounces.
There are now 572,100 ounces of the yellow metal in the higher measured and indicated category, and 544,300 ounces of gold in inferred.
That compares with the estimate in July last year, of 375,869 ounces in indicated and 166,141 ounces of inferred.
It also contains 5.8 million ounces of silver in measured and indicated and 3.9 mln ounces silver in inferred.
The project lies in Lincoln County, Nevada, in the Atlanta mining district where gold is thought to have been first discovered in the 1860s and still benefits from power, water and roads.
