MUPANE: Tau – The Future

Tau Extended Life
The initial mine plan for Tau was based on the results of historic exploration and envisaged the mining of 85,000 ounces over 62 months as reported in our press release of May 12, 2014. The new mine plan has added a further 44,300 ounces of gold and 20 months. The additional ounces and life can be attributed to the conversion of Inferred Resources as well as the discovery of the potential extension of the Tau orebody. Exploration drilling has commenced on the extent of this potential extension and we expect to be able to update the market on the results of this exploration early in 2018.
