Guyana Goldfields Announces Updated Feasibility Study with $800 Million NPV and 38% IRR (After-Tax)

TORONTO, January 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Guyana Goldfields Inc. (TSX: GUY) (the "Company") is pleased to report the key findings from its NI 43-101 Technical Report, Updated Feasibility Study ("FS") for the 100% owned and fully permitted Aurora Gold Property (the "Project"). The FS was authored by Tetra Tech Inc. with contributions from SRK Consulting Inc., Bluhm Burton Engineering, Itasca International Inc., Environ International Corporation, and others. The FS will be available on SEDAR and the Company website within 45 days.

The estimated initial capital required to achieve commercial production is US$205 million and reflects numerous positive changes, in particular, the phased mining and milling approach, reduced footprint of the mine site and facilities, and utilization of an optimized mobile equipment fleet. Based on the key findings of the FS, the Company will continue to move forward with mine construction and development of the Project.

The improved mine plan produces 3.29 million ounces of gold over an initial 17 year mine life at an operating cash cost of US$527 per ounce (including royalty). Average annual gold production over the life of mine is 194,000 ounces, and averages 231,000 ounces per year over the first ten years. Gold production peaks in 2020 at 349,000 ounces. Commercial production is expected to commence in Q1 2015. Gold production will be staged, with initial open pit production of 5,000 tonnes per day from the Rory's Knoll deposit and expanding to 10,000 tonnes per day in early 2018 when underground mining commences.

Mining and Production

The improved mine plan contains 39.5 million tonnes of ore containing 3.48 million ounces of gold at an average grade of 2.74 g/t over an initial 17 year mine life.  Total gold recovered is expected to be 3.29 million ounces.  Average annual gold production over the life of mine is 194,000 ounces, averaging 231,000 ounces over the first ten years, with production peaking at 349,000 ounces in 2020.

Commercial production is scheduled to start in Q1 2015.  Mining operations will commence with open pit production supplying ore to the mill at a rate of 1.75 million tonnes per year or 5,000 tonnes per day, starting with Rory's Knoll in the first three years where the strip ratio is low. After nine years of operation, open pit mining will be completed at the Rory's Knoll, Aleck Hill, Walcott Hill and Mad Kiss zones.

Underground mining commences in early 2018 at the Rory's Knoll zone as open pit mining operations in this zone are complete.  Rory's Knoll underground will be mined utilizing the open benching and sublevel retreat mining methods via a decline access with truck haulage from a depth of -137 metres (70mbsl) down to -1,037 metres (970mbsl).  The results from a detailed coupled hydrogeological and geotechnical model support the open benching and sublevel retreat mining method approach.  The study results show underground mining creates minimal surface subsidence and indicate water inflows are manageable.  Concurrent with the commencement of underground mining, the mill capacity will increase to 10,000 tonnes per day with an average rate of 3.5 million tonnes per year over five years.  Thereafter, the underground mine will operate at 5,300 tonnes per day for the next nine years.

Upside Potential to Feasibility Study

The FS does not include the following underground resources as defined in the NI 43-101 Resource Estimate published June 25, 2012:

  • 1.12 million ounces of gold @ 3.87g/t in the indicated category at Rory's Knoll
  • 1.28 million ounces of gold @ 4.25g/t in the inferred category at Rory's Knoll
  • 570,000 ounces of gold @ 3.93g/t in the indicated category in the satellite deposits
  • 290,000 ounces of gold @ 4.11g/t in the inferred category in the satellite deposits

The Company will continue to evaluate the integration of some of these additional ounces into the ongoing mine plan. The majority of these ounces are found below the pit shell at Aleck Hill and at Rory's Knoll below a depth of -1,037 metres (970mbsl). The mine plan includes excess mill and equipment capacity later in the mine life that will provide throughput flexibility for the mining and processing of the additional resources.

Metallurgy, Processing, and Infrastructure

The Aurora process plant will be designed in two phases with Phase I initially treating 1.75 million tonnes per year.  Phase II will have an ultimate capacity of 3.5 million tonnes per year. The process plant will initially treat open pit saprolite and fresh ore from the Rory's Knoll zone.  Gold recovery will be by extraction in a carbon in leach ("CIL") circuit.  Mined ore will be crushed and ground prior to processing through CIL, carbon desorption, and electrowinning.  Gold doré will be produced on-site and stored in a secure vault prior to being transported off-site.  The resulting CIL tailings will be treated using an air/SO2 cyanide detoxification system prior to tailings disposal.  Tailings will be pumped into the tailings management area.

The key criteria selected for the plant design are:

  • Nominal ore throughput rate of 5,000 t/d in phase 1 and 10,000 t/d in phase 2;
  • Design availability of 96% (after ramp-up), which equates to 8,400 operating hours per year, with standby equipment in critical areas;
  • Sufficient plant design flexibility for treatment of all ore types at design throughput; and
  • Overall gold recovery of 94.4% for fresh rock and 97% for saprolite.

The Project design incorporates all infrastructure requisites of a large-scale mining operation. An access road, linking the Project with a port facility at Buckhall on the Essequibo River is already in place.  The Buckhall port facility, owned and operated by Guyana Goldfields will be upgraded to permit ocean going vessels to be docked and will provide facilities for customs clearance, cargo, fuel, and personnel handling during Project construction and operations.

At the Project site, the following principal operations to support infrastructure facilities will be constructed or expanded:

  • On-site service and heavy equipment haulage roads;
  • Camp accommodations;
  • A combination of diesel and heavy fuel oil power station, distribution system and fuel storage facilities;
  • A newly expanded airstrip;
  • A new river dike as part of a comprehensive water management facility, including drainage channels, diversion dams, sumps and pumps;
  • A tailings management area;
  • Heavy equipment maintenance shop, mine buildings and warehouses, administration building, explosives storage;
  • Communications system;
  • Waste disposal area (landfill); and
  • A waste rock stockpile area.

Financing and Cash Resources

The Company is financed to continue development and exploration work.  In order to finance full construction of the Project, discussions have been underway with project debt and equity providers. Full ranges of financing options are being explored and decisions will be taken once the financing opportunities have been evaluated.

Information Concerning Estimates of Mineral Reserves and Resources

The mineral reserve and resource estimates reported in this press release were prepared in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"), as required by Canadian securities regulatory authorities. For United States reporting purposes, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") applies different standards in order to classify mineralization as a reserve. In particular, while the terms "measured," "indicated" and "inferred" mineral resources are required pursuant to NI 43-101, the SEC does not recognize such terms. Canadian standards differ significantly from the requirements of the SEC. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories constitute or will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, "inferred" mineral resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian securities laws, issuers must not make any disclosure of results of an economic analysis that includes inferred mineral resources, except in rare cases.

Forwarding-Looking Information

This news release contains "forward-looking information" which may include, but is not limited to, statements with respect to the estimation of mineral resources. Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words and phrases such as "plans," "expects," "is expected," "budget," "scheduled," "estimates," "forecasts," "intends," "anticipates," or "believes" or variations (including negative variations) of such words and phrases, or state that certain actions, events or results "may," "could," "would," "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved.

Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management as of the date such statements are made and are based on various assumptions.

Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of GGI to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others, the final findings set forth in the NI 43-101 Technical Report, Updated Feasibility Study, general business, economic, competitive, political and social uncertainties; the actual results of exploration activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; political instability; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities, as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in GGI's annual information form. Although GGI has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results to differ from those anticipated, estimated or intended.  Forward-looking statements contained herein are made as of the date of this news release and GGI disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or results, except as may be required by applicable securities laws. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements.

How do you know when a technology has become mainstream? A good clue may be when politicians start talking about it on the campaign trail and with mainstream media. David Cameron, the UK prime minister, was the latest, indicating that the world was now on “fast-forward” with the Internet of Things (IoT) ushering in the new industrial revolution. No mention of IoT targeted at the masses would be complete without the clichéd example of the communicating fridge. While it is easy to get caught up in...
Machine-to-machine (M2M) technology and the resulting Internet of Things are leading us inexorably toward everything-as-a-service (XaaS). As more things get connected, the range of service opportunities expands. And as those services are presented online, they become available for use, re-use and re-purposing. At first thought, the idea of more connected devices suggests simply that there will be more devices around, and as such, more products for manufacturers to make and sell. That’s true, bu...
