Orvana Minerals Corp. (ORV.TO), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Empresa Minera Paititi (EMIPA), today provided an updated resource and reserve estimates for its Don Mario UMZ copper-gold-silver mine operations in Bolivia. During 2012, EMIPA made significant changes to the mining and processing aspects of the operation thus warranting an update.

The updated NI 43-101-compliant resource and reserve estimates contains approximately 177,000 ounces of gold, 5.6 million ounces of silver, and 120 million pounds of copper, which is a decrease of about 5%, 2%, and 11%, respectively, after considerations for production through September 30, 2012 as well as the exclusion of certain oxide mineralization whose metals cannot be extracted economically; testing of these ores will continue in order to seek a viable extraction method, Orvana said.

Orvana is very near a yr low of 78 cents.
