Dec 2 (Reuters) - Crocodile Gold Corp CRK.TO said indicated gold reserve at its project in the northern territory of Australia increased by over 40 percent.

Toronto-based Crocodile Gold, which owns and operates mines in Australia, said indicated gold reserve at Mt. Bundy project was 681,000 ounces, up from its earlier estimate of 475,000 ounces.

Mt. Bundy deposit is located about 15 kilometers to the southwest of Crocodile Gold’s Tom’s Gully mine.

Last month, Crocodile Gold posted a profit in its first quarter of commercial production. [ID:nSGE6A70RU]
