Name of the Project
La India gold project.

Location
Nicaragua.

Project Owner/s
Condor Gold.

Project Description
Condor released a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) on the project in October 2021, which presented two scenarios for its development.

In Scenario A, the PEA envisages mining from four openpits – La India, America, Mestiza and Central Breccia Zone – that will target a plant feed rate of 1.225-million tonnes a year.

About 1.47-million ounces of gold are expected to be produced over a 12-year life-of-mine (LoM).

In Scenario B, mining is extended to include three underground operations at La India, America and Mestiza, in which the processing rate is increased to 1.4-million tonnes a year.

This scenario will produce an average of 120 000 oz/y over an initial six years of production and 862 000 oz over a nine-year life-of-mine. 

Potential Job Creation

Net Present Value/Internal Rate of Return
Scenario A has an estimated post-tax net present value (NPV) , at a 5% discount rate, of $302-million and an internal rate of return (IRR) of 58%, with a payback of 12 months

Scenario B has an estimated post-tax NPV, at a 5% discount rate, of $418-million after deducting upfront capital expenditure (capex) and an IRR of 54%, with a payback of 12 months.
