Community & Environmental Enhancement

Significant inroads into Queensland Government acid mine drainage legacy +A$500M
Tailings removed from old waterways and original gullies restablished; copper (2ktpa) and pyrite (200Ktpa) biproducts removed from site
12 month construction period with A$85M capital spend, 20 year operating costs +A$45M/year
60 direct jobs, no FIFO, alleviating +25% unemployment in township
Environmental cleanup and heritage vision linked to green tourism opportunity

Feasibility Study Key Results

  1. Long Life Project (1.1MtPa throughput)
    >> 9.5 year base case
    >> 20 year expanded case
    >> Famous geological address but almost no modern exploration
  2. Low Cost- AISC of A$549/Au oz
  3. Payback-2 years
  4. Pre-Production capital of A$85m which includes
    >> Processing Plant 75.6m
  5. Maiden ore reserve of 9.9Mt@ 1.8g/t Aueq (1.2g/tAu, 0.16% Cu), 21% Pyrite)
  1. Please refer announcement ASX: 8 December 2016.
  2. AISC = C1 + royalties + sustaining capital costs (C1 = Direct cash operating costs produced net of by-product credits),
