Chairman's Address


Dear Shareholder


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2015 Annual Report for West African Resources Limited. Having only just stepped into the chair at the end of the reporting period, this is my first Annual Report for the Company but it is an exciting time to be at the helm.


The company has had a very productive year and has achieved all that we set out to do as we move closer to becoming a West African gold producer. We are on track to achieve that next year with our Mankarga 5 heap leach starter project in Burkina Faso. While market conditions have been difficult, particularly for companies in the project development stage as we are, we have worked hard to keep our exploration and administration costs to a minimum. It is a testament to our Managing Director Richard Hyde and his team to have achieved all that we have over the past year.


A Scoping Study for Mankarga 5 released early in the financial year demonstrated it to be a high-margin, low-Capex project, and we followed this by completing a Pre-Feasibility Study, released in February, that improved the project outlook even further.


Highlights of the PFS included:


  • Pre-production capital of US$46.6 million, including US$8.7 million working capital and contingency

  • Annual gold production of 69,000 ounces for first three years, 49,000 ounces for life of mine

  • Mine life of 7 years

  • All-in site costs of US$538/oz for first 3 years, US$749/oz life of mine

  • IRR of 63% with a 14 month payback of capital due to strong early project cash flow.


Working on these strong results, we are moving ahead with the Bankable Feasibility Study for the project, which we hope to have completed by the end of 2015. We are completing this in parallel with project financing negotiations in the hope that we can get Mankarga 5 into production as soon as possible, maximising the returns to our shareholders.


Meanwhile, we continue to undertake infill and exploration drilling at Mankarga 5 and have commenced exploration at the most advanced prospect adjacent to the deposit, Mankarga 1, in the hope that we can add further resources to our inventory.


I am excited about the year ahead and putting the experience from many years working in West Africa to use in my new role as Chairman. In the past I have worked with companies including Adamus Resources, Endeavour Mining and Papillion Resources, which merged with B2Gold Corp in a US$570 million deal, and I have experience in financing, development, construction and operation of mining projects in a variety of commodities, including gold. I am hopeful I can provide strong leadership to West African at this important time in our history.


I thank our Shareholders for your continued support, and I look forward to sharing this journey with you as we transition from

gold explorer and developer to West Africa's next gold producer.


Mark Connelly Chairman

REVIEW OF OPERATIONS


Mankarga 5 Gold Project (Tanlouka Permit), Burkina Faso


Background


West African completed the acquisition of the Mankarga 5 deposit, located on the Tanlouka Permit (Figure 1), from Channel Resources in January 2014. The Company aims to be a +50,000oz per annum gold producer in 2016 via a low- cost heap leach starter project at Mankarga 5. It has purchased a second-hand 1.6Mtpa heap leach plant and in July 2014, completed a successful scoping study for the project.


Figure 1 - Tanlouka Project Location


Scoping Study


West African released a Scoping Study for the Mankarga 5 project on 29 July 2014 which demonstrated it as a high- margin, low-Capex gold project.


Highlights of the study included:

  • Pre-production capital of $35 million plus working capital and contingency of $9 million

  • IRR of 57% with a 16-month payback on initial capital

  • Free cash flow of $103 million after capital costs

  • NPV5% of $84 million

  • Estimated average annual gold production of 59,400 ounces for first three years

  • Estimated average annual gold production of 44,100 ounces for life of mine

  • Current study mine life of 5.4 years

  • Life of mine strip ratio 1:1

  • Cash costs of $614/oz

  • All-in sustaining cash costs of $685/oz (including cash costs, royalties, refining and sustaining capital).


    The study demonstrated positive results for a starter project focusing on the oxide portion of the Mankarga 5 resource.


    Metallurgical Testwork


    In October, West African reported metallurgical test work results from Mankarga 5 that demonstrated outstanding gold recoveries and confirmed the heap leach suitability of oxide ore.


    Three column tests were completed on oxide ore from the Mankarga 5 deposit. Test work was completed at ALS Global in Perth on oxide composites from four metallurgical drill core holes which were sited at various locations in the Mankarga 5 deposit.


    Highlights:

    • Gold recoveries of up to 90% and averaging 86% in column test work

    • Rapid leach kinetics with strongly oxidised ore gold recoveries of 75% after 7 days.

    • Gold recoveries for all ore types more than 50% after 7 days.

    • Low to moderate cement addition of 5kg to 10kg per tonne.

    • Low cyanide consumption of 0.2 - 0.4 kg/t NaCN.

    • High percolation rates with low slumping.

    • Very low Abrasion and Ball Mill Work Indices indicate that the wear rates and power consumption will be low to very low by industry standards.


    Further metallurgical test work holes were drilled during the December quarter, with approximately 1.5 tonnes of whole drill core airfreighted to ALS Ammtec in Perth. Results from this work will be incorporated into the Bankable Feasibility Study.


    Pre-Feasibility Study


    West African Resources Limited announced results of its technical and financial assessment of an oxide heap leach starter project on its Mankarga 5 Gold Project, Burkina Faso in February 2015. This assessment constituted a Pre- Feasibility Study (PFS) incorporating updated Mineral Resource, mining schedule, column test work and cost inputs. It was prepared in accordance with the requirements of both the Australian 2012 JORC Code and Canadian NI 43-101. A summary of the base case is stated below on a pre-tax basis assuming 100% project at a gold price of $1,300/oz. All amounts are in US dollars.

  • Pre-production capital of $46.6 million, including $8.7 million working capital and contingency

  • Annual gold production of 69,000 ounces for first three years, 49,000 ounces for life of mine

  • Mine life of 7 years

  • Cash costs of $428/oz for first 3 years, $635/oz life of mine

  • All-in site costs of $538/oz for first 3 years, $749/oz life of mine

  • IRR of 63% with a 14 month payback of capital due to strong early project cash flow

  • Pre-Tax cash flow after initial and sustaining capital costs of $146 million

  • Pre-Tax NPV5% of $117 million, Post-Tax NPV5% of $86 million

  • 59% increase to in-pit inventory now 440,000oz, life of mine strip ratio 2:1

    • Indicated resources increased 57% from scoping study to 8.4Mt at 1.8g/t Au (495koz), Inferred resources increased 39% to 15.2Mt at 1.6g/t Au (791koz) at a 1g/t Au cut-off

    • Potential to upgrade in-pit Inferred Resources currently treated as waste in mining schedule

    • Limited exploration conducted to date, numerous drill targets within trucking distance of the proposed plant site.

Cautionary Note:

Mineral Resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resource estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. These mineral resource estimates include inferred mineral resources that are normally considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is also no certainty that these inferred mineral resources will be converted to measured and indicated categories through further drilling, or into mineral reserves, once economic considerations are applied.

Production targets for the proposed heap leach starter project referred to in this announcement were first released to the ASX and TSXV on 23 February 2015. They are preliminary and there is no certainty that the production targets, or the forecast financial information derived from the production targets, will be realised. All material assumptions underpinning production targets or forecast financial information derived from production targets continue to apply and have not materially changed.


Perth-based independent engineering consultancy Mintrex Pty Ltd managed the PFS, completing it to a ± input cost estimate and assuming a throughput of 1.6Mtpa in line with the capacity of the plant purchased by West African.


The base case assumes 100% project basis and a gold price of $1300/oz, with all amounts in US dollars unless otherwise stated.

    Bankable Feasibility Study


    West African executed final documentation with the Metals and Energy Capital Division of Macquarie Bank Limited ('Macquarie') for a two-year US$5 million convertible loan facility to enable it to complete a Bankable Feasibility Study and completed drawdown of the facility on 23 December 2014.


    West African appointed Mintrex as the lead consultant and Mr Lyndon Hopkins as Study Manager.


    Project Financing


    The Company intends to finance development of Mankarga 5 predominantly with senior debt to minimise equity dilution and maximise shareholder returns. It engaged Nick Harch, Managing Director of resource investment advisory firm Orimco Pty Ltd and former Macquarie Bank Executive Director, to undertake project finance discussions with potential lenders.


    Permitting


    West African appointed Knight Piesold Pty Ltd to monitor and assess the studies required to meet environmental legislation requirements for a Mining Permit application. The proposed mine site and infrastructure was assessed as a Category A activity requiring an Etude d'Impact sur l'Environnement (Environmental and Social Impact Assessment - ESIA), while the Water Storage Facility (WSF) was assessed as a Category B activity requiring a Notice d'Impact sur l'Environnement (NIE). Field work for these separate studies is ongoing and both reports are expected to be completed by late July 2015.


    Resource Upgrade


    Resource upgrade drilling commenced in the March quarter, targeting drilling in-pit Inferred Mineral Resources. Some 0.7Mt of Inferred material grading 1.0g/t Au containing 21,000 ounces was included in the PFS pit design and is currently treated as waste. Infill drilling will upgrade this material from Inferred to Indicated category, which will make a positive impact on the project economics and reduced strip ratio.


    Exploration


    Diamond drilling results received during the December quarter confirmed potential for a Stage 2 carbon-in-leach (CIL) project at Mankarga 5, demonstrating excellent grade continuity beneath the proposed oxide starter pit that West African intends to treat by conventional heap leach processing. Results included:

    • TAN14-DD018: 2m at 6.38 g/t Au from 185m, and 26m at 2.89 g/t Au incl. 3m at 13.1 g/t Au from 190m

    • TAN14-DD020: 29m at 1.59g/t Au including 4m at 2.98g/t Au and 3m at 4.5g/t Au from 62m

    • TAN14-DD021: 2m at 28.17g/t Au from 56m

    • TAN14-DD021: 11m at 3.30g/t Au from 80m including 3m at 4.27g/t Au and 1m at 16.82g/t Au from 86m

    • TAN14-DD022: 72m at 2.15g/t Au from 231m including;

    o 7m at 7.68g/t Au from 243m o 5m at 3.58g/t Au from 263m o 1m at 17.57g/t Au from 271m o 8m at 2.69g/t Au from 278m o 3m at 2.93g/t Au from 295m.


    Late in the reporting period, West African announced results from auger drilling along strike to the northeast of the Mankarga 5 deposit which demonstrated the continuation of mineralisation. In total 245 auger holes, with an average depth of 5.3m, were drilled along strike of the M5 resource area on lines oriented northeast - southwest, on a 200m by 50m grid. Sampling returned a peak result of 635 ppb Au (0.64g/t Au) with other high tenor results of 228 ppb Au, 224 ppb Au and 218 ppb Au.


    Other Prospects

    Figure 2: Mankarga Exploration Summary Plan


    There are a number of drill-ready prospects within a short trucking distance from the Mankarga 5 starter project which have potential to add further plant feed to the project which have had little attention from the Company to date. Nearby prospects include Mankarga 1, Mankarga 2, Manesse, Tanwaka, Goudré and Moktedu (Figure 3).


    Mankarga 1 is the most advanced prospect and located approximately 500m northwest of the Mankarga 5 Mineral Resource. WAF geologists have completed detailed prospect and structural mapping of the area. Mankarga 1 comprises similar rock types and stratigraphy to Mankarga 5, however the major difference is in the orientation of mineralised trends north-northwest, in contrast to Mankarga 5 which trends northeast. Mineralisation is hosted with steeply dipping quartz veining which has been subject to significant artisanal mining activity with pits down to 30m depth.


    Channel Resources drilled approximately 23 RC holes and five Diamond holes in the area. Mineralisation is structurally complex therefore detailed auger drilling will be completed during the quarter on a 20m by 100m grid, oriented perpendicular to the main mineralised trends.


    First results from shallow reverse circulation (RC) oxide drilling at Mankarga 1 undertaken in the June quarter intercepted oxide mineralisation beneath historic artisanal workings, with two scissor holes ending in mineralisation. TAC0657 and TAC0658 both ended in quartz veining and returned 8m at 1.5g/t Au and 6m at 1.3g/t Au respectively. These results are up dip of historic RC hole TAN10-RC-23, drilled in 2010, which returned high-grade results of 2m at 25g/t Au from 58m. It is expected that oxide mineralisation from M1 will exhibit similar metallurgical characteristics to M5 oxides, therefore will be amenable to heap leach processing.


    Gold mineralisation at M1 has not been included in the project resource inventory to date, but will be added to the BFS.


    Other Permits

    Figure 3 - Project Location surrounding exploration prospects and deposits


    West African holds a number of permits surrounding the Tanlouka Permit where Mankarga 5 is located.


    However, the Company is focused on getting Mankarga 5 into production and did not complete exploration on these permits during the reporting period.


    CORPORATE


    Macquarie Bank Loan Facility


    As announced on 29 October 2014, West African signed a committed term sheet for a two-year US$5 million convertible loan facility with the Metals & Energy Capital Division of Macquarie Bank Limited. Drawdown of the facility was completed on 23 December 2014.


    The US$5 million facility will provide all necessary funding to complete the Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) for the Company's Mankarga 5 Heap Leach Gold Project in Burkina Faso. A scoping study, released in July this year, demonstrated Mankarga 5 to be a low capital cost, high margin, heap leach starter project.


    The key terms of the Convertible Loan Agreement are as follows:


    • Committed loan facility for up to US$5 million, to be drawn down as a single loan.

    • Cash interest is payable on the facility.

    • Bullet repayment on the earlier of 30 September 2016 and the date on which WAF receives proceeds from a project financing or capital raising.

    • Drawdown of the Facility was subject to a number of conditions, including the issue of 40,545,224 unlisted options (Options), exercisable at A$0.14 on or before 30 September 2017 to Macquarie. Any funds received by

      WAF through the conversion of the Options will be applied against the outstanding Facility amount, reducing the outstanding debt owed to Macquarie.

    • The Facility is secured against all assets of WAF and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Channel Resources Limited.

    • The Convertible Loan Agreement contains other customary features, including customary representations and warranties, undertakings and events of default for facilities of this nature.


Appointment of Non-Executive Chairman


In June 2015, Mark Connelly was appointed Non-Executive Chairman of West African Resources.


Mr Connelly is the former Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Perth based Papillon Resources Limited, a gold developer with Malian assets, which recently merged with Vancouver-based B2Gold Corp in a US$570 million deal. Prior to this he was Chief Operating Officer of Endeavour Mining Corporation following its merger with Adamus Resources Limited where he was Managing Director and CEO.


Mr Connelly has more than 28 years of experience in the mining industry, and has held senior executive positions with Newmont Mining Corporation and Inmet Mining Corporation. He has extensive experience in financing, development, construction and operation of mining projects in a variety of commodities including gold, base metals and other resources in West Africa, Australia, North America and Europe.


Mr Connelly replaced Mr Francis Harper, who resigned from the board.


Resignation of Non-Executive Directors

In August 2015, Non-Executive Directors Jean-Marc Lulin and Colin Jones have resigned from the Board. The resignations come as West African looks to reduce its operational expenditure while continuing to develop the Tanlouka Gold Project in Burkina Faso.
