Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. is a Canadian emerging gold producer trading on the TSX (SBB.T). Sabina's properties are located in Canada, one of the world's safest mining jurisdictions.

Sabina's primary assets, located in Nunavut, consist of: the Back River Gold Project, currently in the feasibility and permitting phase and the Hackett River Silver Royalty, a silver production royalty comprised of 22.5% of the first 190 million ounces produced and 12.5% of all the silver produced thereafter. The Hackett River project is currently owned by Glencore.

The Company's focus is on the gold assets at Back River. It is a large advanced multi-million ounce undeveloped high grade gold deposit with compelling economics and optionality to start small. Basic engineering is completed, and the project is moving into detailed engineering.

The Back River Project is 100% owned by Sabina. It has 80km of prospective banded iron formation stratigraphy. Its resources are hosted 70% at Goose and 30% at George. It has excellent exploration potential. In fact, Back River is a district.

In December 2017, the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) has issued the final project certificate for the Back River project – environmental assessment process completed.

The Company is well funded with ~$40 million in cash and equivalents.

Projects in Hand


Sabina's 100%-owned Back River Gold Project, a series of gold deposits, is located in southwestern Nunavut, Canada. Back River is an 80km long district, with highly prospective opportunities for new discoveries and for expansion from existing deposits.

Current Mine Life: ~12 years
LOM Gold Production: 2.3 million ounces
Measured & Indicated Resources: 5,333 million ounces of Gold
Inferred Resource: 1,851 million ounces of Gold
Reserves: 2.3 million ounces (included in resources)

The Feasibility Study on the Back River Gold Project presents a project that has been designed on a fit-for purpose basis, with the potential to produce ~200,000 ounces a year for ~11 years with a rapid payback of 2.9 years. At a US$1,150 gold price and a 0.80 (US$:C$) exchange rate, the Study delivers a potential after tax internal rate of return of approximately 24.2% with an initial CAPEX of $415 million.
