POSITIVE FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR THE HASSA� MINE  

�TUDE DE FAISABILIT� POSITIVE � LA MINE HASSA�

 

 

 

NEWS RELEASE

 

Paris, May 16, 2011  

All amounts are in US dollars and for 100% of the project, unless otherwise indicated.

 

POSITIVE FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR THE HASSA� MINE:
LA MANCHA SET TO BOOST PRODUCTION BY 2013

 

FEASIBILITY STUDY HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:

  • Hassa�'s proven and probable reserves increase to 1.1M oz of gold (up 233%)  
  • Average gold production of 161,647 oz of gold per year 
  • Average cash cost of US $571/oz (excluding silver credits) 
  • After- tax Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 36%  
  • NPV at 5% is $116.3 M (quick 1.8 year payback) 
  • Expected commissioning: Early 2013 
  • Initial capital requirement: $187.0 M 
  • The project is fully permitted 

 

SIGNIFICANT UPSIDE REMAINS:

  • Metallurgical testwork recovered significant quantities of silver from the heap leach tails 
  • 1.2Mt of inferred resources in the heap leach tails remain to be converted  

 

La Mancha Resources Inc. (TSX: LMA, hereinafter "La Mancha" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received a positive Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") for the proposed upgrade of its present heap leach plant to Carbon-In-Leach ("CIL") technology at its Hassa� gold mine in North-Eastern Sudan.

 

As shown in Table 1 below, the CIL plant should provide two major advantages to the mine: A) it should allow the processing of ore that cannot currently be economically processed with the heap leach method, thus increasing the mine's reserves by 233% to 1,088,000 ounces of gold, and B) the increased capacity (3.0 Mtpa vs. 0.8 Mtpa) should allow the mine's average gold production to increase by 136% to 161,647 ounces of gold per year while significantly reducing cash costs per ounce.

Dominique Delorme, President and CEO of La Mancha, noted that: "This positive feasibility study reconfirms the robust economics outlined in the September 2010 Preliminary Economic Assessment and forms a good basis for the mine's successful long-term commercial viability. It is important to highlight the low mining risk associated with this project, as 75% of the intended feed for the plant is already stockpiled in proximity to the planned plant location. We remain confident that construction will start in the fall, once an agreement on project financing and ownership is finalized with our Sudanese partner. This would allow the plant to start operating in the fall of 2012, with full commissioning planned for early 2013. The Hassa� CIL project is instrumental to La Mancha's objective of increasing its consolidated gold production to 200,000 ounces per year by 2013."

 

The DFS was compiled by Sedgman Ltd. with the collaboration of CSA Global Pty Ltd., Golder Associates, Arethuse Geology and Wardell Armstrong. The key consultants involved in the studies and their respective areas of responsibility are described at the end of this press release, in the "Qualified Persons and Data Verification" section. Table 2 below provides the highlights of Sedgman's financial model for the CIL project based on all the available operating assumptions.

MINERAL RESERVES

Today's positive DFS has allowed for the conversion of 761,000 ounces to mineral reserves, representing an increase of 233% over reserves published as of December 31, 2010.

 

Table 3 below compares the new upgraded reserve estimate dated March 31, 2011, to the estimate dated December 31, 2010.

It is important to highlight that an extra 1.2Mt of heap leach residue grading 2.06 g/t Au (for 79,475 oz of gold contained) remained in the inferred category as of March 31, 2011, as the access required to conduct the necessary drilling was impeded by the active heaps and the tonnage, grades and recoveries were therefore not supported by sufficient testwork to meet the requirements of a feasibility study according to the NI 43-101 standard. In the DFS, however, Sedgman outlines this potential as an "Improvement Opportunity" with sufficient data to make an estimate of the scope of its possible improvement benefit. Sedgman's preliminary economic assessment of this 1.2Mt inferred resource establishes that processing this additional tailings material through the plant to extend the project's life could increase the NPV of the project by $15.9 million to $132.2 million using a gold price of US $1,000 per ounce and a 5% discount rate.

 

PROCESSING, METALLURGY AND PRODUCTION

The CIL mill throughput schedule, as outlined in the DFS, is based on the expected mineral reserve estimate as at commissioning of the mill in early 2013. As such, it is based on the expected December 31, 2012, mineral reserve estimate, which takes into account planned mine production for the period between March 31, 2011, and December 31, 2012.

 

Hassa�'s gold reserve is composed of three different ore types: traditional gold ore, acidic gold ore and heap leach residue accumulated since the mine's start-up. Table 4 below provides a breakdown of the ore types comprised in the DFS reserve base for the CIL mill throughput.

The CIL processing facility has been designed to process 3.0 Mtpa using conventional processes. As shown in Figure 1 of the appendix, the plant is set to be strategically located in proximity to the heap leach residue stockpiles.

 

Metallurgical testing indicated that gold recovery rates would differ according to Hassa�'s various ore types, as described above. As such, the gold recovery rate over the life of the CIL phase is expected to average 72%, with rates varying over time depending on ore throughput composition. Metallurgical gold recovery rates for the traditional ore, heap leach residue and acidic ore are 85%, 63% and 95% respectively.

 

Moreover, metallurgical testwork carried out on a total of 23 composite samples taken from the tailings during the preparation of the DFS showed recoveries of significant quantities of silver (on average 4.4 ounces of silver per ounce of gold recovered). It is important to note that the tailings have never before been tested for silver content and silver recoverability. Further analysis is required to quantify the silver as a resource since tonnage, grades and recoveries are not supported by sufficient testwork to meet the requirements of the NI 43-101 standard. In the DFS, Sedgman outlined this potential as another "Improvement Opportunity", and the carbon circuit of the plant has been scaled to allow the recovery of silver and gold by increasing its carbon loading.

 

Table 5 below shows the gold production expected over the life of CIL phase, with the corresponding cash cost per ounce.

Since the mine is already in production and water pipeline permits were granted on April 5, 2010, no additional permits are necessary.

 

CAPITAL COSTS

The total capital development budget is $191.2 million, which includes Sedgman's estimates of $187.0 million for the upgrade of the plant and infrastructure, and $4.2 million for replacement of mining equipment. The main capital items are presented in Table 6 below.

As shown above, one of the main capital investments addresses the need for water. As the mine is located in the Red Sea Desert, nearby water sources are limited. Strict management of the underground water sources found around the mine have met the water requirements of the existing heap leaching operation but would not be sufficient for a CIL plant. In order to meet the water requirements of the upgraded plant, a 160 km pipeline is planned. With a projected capacity of 7.7 million cubic metres of water per year, the pipeline is designed to provide sufficient water for an eventual addition of the 5 Mtpa flotation plant required to process Hassa�'s VMS deposits, which would consume 4.1 million cubic metres of water per year. The construction of a single, final pipeline (rather than two smaller lines over time) is planned to reduce overall capital requirements.

 

The DFS is based on power supply from the construction of a fixed 16 MW Heavy Fuel Oil on-site power station. As a result, capital costs for power supply are $6.7 million lower than for the connection to the National Power Grid provided for in the September 2010 Preliminary Economic Assessment. The planned power station is designed to generate 11 kV and should consist of 12 generators in a 10-operating/2-spare configuration, each rated at 1.6 MW (continuous).

 

PROJECT ECONOMICS

Sedgman built a financial model for the project, using the financial parameters and available operating assumptions provided by La Mancha. The results shown are based on conservative gold price assumptions ranging from $1,200 to $1,000 per ounce of gold.

 

The net present value (NPV) and Internal Rate of Return (IRR) are presented for the after-tax scenario. Table 7 below presents the financial highlights associated with the plant upgrade.

Although the corporate tax rate and gold royalty fee are currently 15% and 7% respectively, assumptions of 10% and 5% respectively were used in the DFS, based on La Mancha management's best estimates of future rates. Should the rates remain at current levels, the NPV discounted at 5% would be $98.0 million and the IRR would be 31%.  

 

The sensitivity of the project's NPV/IRR to changes in the gold price was tested and is presented in Table 8 below.

UPDATE ON CURRENT OPERATIONS

As shown in Table 3 above, as of December 31, 2010, there was still a total of 2,895,000 tonnes in reserves at the Hassa� mine that could be treated with the current heap leaching facility. These reserves come mainly from the last two deposits of traditional ore identified to date on the property. As the mine's extraction and processing capacity are now stabilized at around 800,000 - 900,000 tonnes per annum, Hassa� can continue its current operations until mid-2014. Table 9 below shows the mine's theoretical operating profile without the upgrade to CIL technology.

The rapidity with which the CIL plant can be commissioned should not be overlooked; it has a significant impact on this scenario, as all the planned ore feed would be re-directed towards the CIL plant as soon as it became operational. It is also worth mentioning that the Company has been very successful at identifying new pockets of traditional ore over the past years, virtually replacing reserves as they are mined. Future exploration success of that nature could positively impact both the current operations scenario and the CIL scenario.

 

NEXT STEPS

Based on the results of the DFS, La Mancha's Board of Directors is aiming to start developing the new project in the third quarter of 2011. The Company must meet two conditions by the end of June to achieve this time line:

A.             Successful ownership discussions - La Mancha considers that the successful development of an industrial project of this nature requires a corporate structure with operational and financial flexibility. The Company is currently in discussion with its Sudanese partner to determine an ownership structure that supports the success of the project. 

B.             Full project financing - Once the ownership structure has been determined, La Mancha will finalize the structure of the project funding required. As of December 31, 2010, La Mancha had a cash position of $38.4 million and was debt free. The Company also has the option of monetizing its $7.2 million investment in long-term notes. Lastly, the Company is currently in discussions with AREVA, its major shareholder, to extend and increase the line of credit set up in the fall of 2008.

ABOUT THE HASSA� MINE

The Hassa� mine is located in the Red Sea Hills desert of north-eastern Sudan, some 450 km from Khartoum. Inaugurated in 1992, it is Sudan's first and only gold mine in production. Twelve pits have been mined over the years, generating a cumulative production of more than 2.1 million ounces of gold. La Mancha owns 40% of the mine through a subsidiary and is the mine operator.. The Hassa� exploration licenses effectively encompass the entire geological district that extends over 24,000 square kilometres.

 

ABOUT THE HASSA� VMS PROJECT

La Mancha's VMS project involves development of the volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits underlying the mined-out pits of the Hassa� mine in Sudan. To date, the VMS resource delineated on the Hassa� property includes an Inferred resource of 51.4MT (20.6MT attributable to La Mancha) at 1.31 g/t Au and 1.23% Cu. This Inferred resource has been delineated in the VMS lenses found under the Hassa� South and Hadal Awatib pits. The Hassa� property is a mining complex consisting of 18 mined pits, of which six have visually-identified VMS potential. Following the publication of a positive PEA on September 7, 2010, a 12-month, 100,000-metre drilling program was launched with the intent of upgrading the Inferred resource to the Measured and Indicated category, increasing the current resource at the first two targets, and testing the potential of the VMS structure identified at the third target, Hadayamet. As of April 30, 2011, the campaign remained on schedule, with a total of 41,715 metres drilled. A total of seven drill rigs are currently in operation, with three rigs each at Hassa� South and Hadal Awatib carrying out development and infill drilling and the seventh having started target delineation drilling at Hadayamet.
