Name of the Project
Doropo gold project.

Location
Côte d'Ivoire, between the Comoè National Park and the international border with Burkina Faso.

Project Owner/s
Centamin.

Project Description
Results from the prefeasibility study (PFS) have demonstrated an economically robust project.

The project comprises 1 847 km2 and covers 13 gold deposits – Souwa, Nokpa, Chegue Main, Chegue South, Tchouahinin, Kekeda, Han, Enioda, Hinda, Nare, Kilosegui, Attire and Vako, with total mineral reserves of 40.55-million tonnes grading 1.44 g/t gold. Measured and indicated resources are estimated at 51.51-million tonnes grading 1.52 g/t gold and inferred resources at 13.67-million tonnes grading 1.14 g/t gold. The mine plan proposes the conventional openpit mining of a sequence of shallow pits.

Mineral processing will be undertaken through a 4-million-tonne- to 5.5-million-tonne-a-year semiautogenous grinding mill, ball mill and crusher circuit, and conventional carbon-in-leach circuit for an average life-of-mine gold recovery of 92%.

The PFS envisages average gold production of 173 000 oz/y over the ten-year life-of-mine, with an average of 210 000 oz in the first five years.

Potential Job Creation
None stated.

Net Present Value/Internal Rate of Return
The project has an after-tax net present value, at a 5% discount rate, of $330-million and an internal rate of return of 26%, with a payback of 2.3 years.

Capital Expenditure
$349-million, inclusive of a 10% contingency.

Planned Start/End Date
Not stated.

Latest Developments
Centamin is aiming to complete the definitive feasibility study by midyear.

Key Contracts, Suppliers and Consultants
None stated.
