Once approval is received, key works will be able to start, including construction of the camp and other key infrastructure such as site offices and power station.

Third permit being prepared

Preparation of documentation for the third permit, the Works Approval and Licence Application, is in its final stages.

This will be submitted shortly to the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER).

Ducler said, “We are well advanced in project funding discussions and we are continuing our exploration program with the aim of growing our resource, reserve and mine life.”

A recent definitive feasibility study (DFS) found that the project would be a low-cost, high-margin producer capable of delivering strong financial returns for shareholders.

The DFS is based on the production of 250,000 ounces over an initial 6.5-year mine life, with increased average annual production of 53,000 ounces over the first four years.

Forecast life of mine cash costs C1 are $941 per ounce and all-in sustaining costs (AISC) are $1,083/ounce.

First gold from the project is targeted for quarter four of 2019.

Rothsay hosts high-grade mineral resources of 401,000 ounces at an average grade of 8.8 g/t.
