Notes to Editors
Ovoca Gold PLC ("Ovoca" or "the Company") is a mineral exploration and mine development company listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange (Ticker: OVG) and on the ESM market of the Irish Stock Exchange (Ticker: OVX). The Company's principal activity is gold exploration in the Magadan Region of the Russian Federation. Previously Ovoca acquired, developed and sold to JSC Polymetal the Goltsovoye silver project located in the Magadan Region. Currently, Ovoca is aggressively exploring and developing its 100 per cent owned Stakhanovsky and Rassoshinskaya licenses.
Stakhanovsky is located approximately 40 kilometres north of Susuman, the second largest city in the Magadan region. It is accessible by year-round road and there is power infrastructure on site. Stakhanovsky's initial independently established resource was announced in an RNS on 2 February 2011 and is available on the Company's website. The Company intends to put Stakhanovsky into production by 2014.
Rassoshinskaya is in the North Eastern part of the Magadan Region about 200 kilometres from the town of Seimchan. There is no nearby infrastructure. Rassoshinskaya hosts an epithermal gold deposit named Olcha, which is the focus of Ovoca's exploration program. Olcha and nearby satellite deposits have the potential to host a high grade multi-million ounce gold resource. Olcha's latest independently established resource was announced in an RNS on 7 July 2011 and is available on the Company's website.
