Keys to unlocking the copper resource

A modular processing facility and cluster mining model
To adopted a cluster mining model where three to four ore bodies will be developed, each as a separate section of one large mining complex
This approach allows the ore body to dictate which yields optimum return
This is possible as all mining occurs within a 5km radius
Shared infrastructure (cost optimization in terms of equipment & spare parts)
This allows maximum flexibility in terms of grade and volume management
It also mitigates risk and ensures cost control agility
Provides a plug, mine and deliver approach to both surface and underground operations
Allows processing capacity to be built up from 420kt/a to over 1,2Mt/a ROM within 36 months
