Report summary

The following notes and accompanying analysis consider a combined open pit SxEw and concentrator operation based on a definitive feasibility study (DFS) completed in June 2009. Oxide ore (12Mt/a) will be vat leached and processed to copper cathode using SxEw over an 11 year mine life and sulphide ore (5Mt/a) will be milled over a 10 year mine life. As at October 2013 the project was fully permitted and partially financed however work is still being carried out on a pre feasibility study.
