Critical Minerals & Rare Earths, ESG & Cleantech

June 25, 2018 (Source) — Prophecy Development Corp. (“Prophecy” or the “Company“) (TSX: PCY; OTCQX: PRPCF; Frankfurt: 1P2N) is pleased to announce the filing of a technical report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101“) regarding a preliminary economic assessment (the “PEA“) for its Gibellini vanadium project in Eureka, Nevada.

The PEA is available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at

Prophecy’s news release dated May 29, 2018, summarizes the assumptions and key results contained in the PEA.

The PEA is preliminary in nature, and includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the PEA will be realized. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Qualified Persons

The PEA was prepared by staff of Amec Foster Wheeler E&C Services Inc. (“AMEC“), under the direction of Kirk Hanson, who is independent of Prophecy. The following AMEC staff served as Qualified Persons (QPs) as defined in NI 43-101:

Mr. Kirk Hanson, P.E., Technical Director, Open Pit Mining;
Mr. Edward J.C. Orbock III, RM SME, Principal Geologist and US Manager, Consulting;
Mr. Edwin Peralta, P.E., Senior Mining Engineer; and
Dr. Lynton Gormely, P.Eng., Consultant Metallurgist.
