Kopy Goldfields reports updated Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves estimates

Inside information: Kopy Goldfields AB (publ) ("Kopy Goldfields" or the "Company") provides a Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves update for the newly acquired business Amur Zoloto ("AZ"). A total of 1,859 koz of gold in the Measured, Indicated and Inferred categories for hard rock and placer assets are estimated, corresponding to a 32% increase compared to the previous resource estimate made in 2019. This amount includes 1,187 koz of gold contained in Probable Ore Reserves, which is 22% higher than previously reported. Adding the attributable reserves and resources of the Krasny project, Kopy Goldfields' new total estimated M, I&I Mineral Resources amount to 2,756 koz of gold, including total new Probable Ore Reserves of 1,313 koz of gold.

The updated resource statement is effective as of July 1, 2020 and was issued by SRK Consulting (Russia) Limited ("SRK"). The new Competent Persons Report ("CPR") comprises SRK's independent technical review of the mineral assets attributable to AZ.

  • For hard rock assets, the new Mineral Resources include 1,470 koz of gold at 2.9 g/t average grade in the Measured and Indicated categories and 308 koz of gold at 5.6 g/t average grade in the Inferred category for open pit and underground mining operations. In addition, 3,353 koz of silver in the Measured, Indicated and Inferred categories are reported for hard rock assets.
  • For placer assets, the CPR estimates 80.5 koz of gold in the Indicated and Inferred categories.
  • Hard rock Ore Reserves are estimated at 1,162 koz of gold in the Probable category and Placer Ore Reserves are estimated at 25 koz of gold also in the Probable category. Ore reserves are reported as part of the Mineral Resources. Please refer to Tables 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the Appendix for more details.
  • In accordance with the CPR, production of the reported Ore Reserves, both hard rock and alluvial may generate 1,456 MUSD revenue during 2020-2029 at 54% EBITDA margin and 675 USD/oz unit cash costs, based on provided pricing assumptions.

"We are very pleased with the recent exploration results in Amur Zoloto. The 22% increase of the total gold reserves has already off-set gold production in 2019-2020 and will support our production growth plans. Simultaneously, the increase of mineral resources confirms excellent exploration potential of our existing projects as well as organic growth opportunities and will lead to a organic extension of life-of-mine for existing operations. The updated production model reports stronger revenues and lower unit production costs compared with the previous estimate as result of both higher gold prices and increased future gold production", says Mikhail Damrin, CEO of Kopy Goldfields AB.

The Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves have increased primarily due to successful exploration campaign during 2019 and 2020 at Krasivoe underground gold deposit which is part of Yubileyniy project. Importantly, this reserve increase at Krasivoe deposit supports the Company's target to increase capacity of the Yubileyniy processing plant from the current 130,000 tons per annum (tpa) to 400,000 tpa by 2025.

The Competent Persons Report on the Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves of the Amur Zoloto business will be published on the Company's website.

"We have been reviewing the development of Amur Zoloto's projects over a number of years. Although there are a number of risks generally inherent to the mining industry, including the stability of the markets, uncertainties related to Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve estimation, equipment and production performance, SRK considers that AZ has several strengths:

  • AZ has good experience of finding and developing deposits in the Far East region.
  • There are opportunities of further increasing the Ore Reserve at Krasivoe, where reserves are currently constrained to the Indicated Resources above the 750 m horizon;
  • The increase in Ore Reserves at Krasivoe will support expansion to at least 250 kta;
  • There is good upside potential from the optimization of heap leach recoveries at Malyutka",

said David Pearce, Managing Director of SRK Consulting (Russia) Ltd
