The calculation was based on 17,144m of diamond drilling in 96 holes and used a 0.3g/t cutoff grade, the statement said.

"Medoro is very pleased with the estimates in this report and believes that this report further supports the company's strategy to acquire, consolidate and then develop the gold mining district of Marmato in Colombia," said Medoro CEO John Hick.

The company recently announced it had entered a support agreement to buy UK-based Colombia Gold for 33.3mn Medoro common shares, which were trading at Cdn$0.57 on Friday. Medoro will also pay off Colombia Gold's debt up to Cdn$2.8mn (US$2.71mn).
