(Kitco News) - Osino Resources (TSXV: OSI) announced today that it has increased indicated mineral resources fourfold at its Twin Hills Gold Project in the Erongo Region of Namibia.

The company said that previous resource announced in July of 2021, has grown substantially along with significant conversion of Inferred resources to Indicated resources.

According to the company’s statement, an updated mineral resource consists of 2.1 million ounces (Moz) of gold in the Indicated mineral resource category and 0.62 Moz of gold in the Inferred mineral resource category, for a total of 2.72 Moz.

This resource is higher than previously reported mineral resource of 0.44 Moz in the Indicated category and 1.52 Moz in the Inferred category, for a total of 1.96 Moz.

The company added that the increase in resources is due to resource expansion in the Twin Hills Central, Bulge and Clouds areas, and delineation of additional resources from new areas.

Importantly, Osino pointed out that the mineralization continues to be open at depth and along strike, and at Clouds and Twin Hills Central in particular, it appears to be getting better with depth.
