Malachite Resources Limited (Malachite) has an agreement with BCD Resources NL (BCD) to develop the Lorena Gold Project (Project).

The development of the project is substantially complete. Main electrical control centre, generators and ball mill were installed during the quarter. All the key pieces of plant equipment are now on site.

Key remaining items to be completed before commissioning include the electrical and piping installations and construction of the tailings dam.

On 15 January 2015, BCD advised Malachite that it was reviewing the Project capital and commissioning funding requirements.

On 22 January 2015, a receiver and manager was appointed to BCD by a related party of BCD.

BCD has not yet earned any interest in the Project as it has not met its earn-in obligations. BCD can earn a 50% interest in the Project if it completes construction and commissioning of the Project concentration plant.

Lorena Gold Project

MLs 7147, 90192 - 90196 (MAR 100% with BCD farming in to earn 50% economic interest)

Malachite Resources Limited (Malachite) has an agreement with BCD Resources NL (BCD) to develop the Lorena Gold Project, located about 15km east of Cloncurry in northwest Queensland. BCD is required to fund this development to earn its 50% economic share in the Lorena gold mining project (refer Figure 1).

Figure 1: Lorena Gold Project - Tenement Plan

A flotation production facility at Lorena to process 120,000 tonnes per annum of ore is currently being constructed to produce a gold concentrate.

During the quarter, the main activities were the installation of the primary ball mill, the main electrical board (MCC) and the generators. Electrical and piping installation commenced during the quarter alongside the start of earthworks for the construction of the waste rock dump, ROM pads, and tailings dam.

Key remaining items to be completed before commissioning can commence include finalising the electrical and piping installations and the construction of the tailings dam.

On 15 January 2015, BCD advised Malachite that it was reviewing the capital and commissioning funding requirements for the Project.

On 22 January 2015, BCD advised the ASX that a receiver and manager had been appointed to BCD on behalf of MKS Precious Metals. MKS Precious Metals is a company associated with the Chairman of BCD.

Malachite is waiting on details from the receiver and manager of BCD in relation to the Project's

ongoing development.

Malachite continues to review its position in light of the appointment of a receiver and manager to

BCD. Malachite will also continue to investigate its own funding requirements and options.

The Company again confirms the following key points in respect of the Lorena Gold Project:

Malachite currently holds 100% unencumbered ownership of the Mining Licences relating to the Lorena Gold Project.

In accordance with the terms of the joint venture agreement between the parties BCD has not yet earned a 50% interest in the project as it has not met its obligation to fund project development through to the completion of construction and commissioning of a plant to produce a gold concentrate.

BCD had previously requested that the joint venture agreement be restructured and that Malachite offer some or all of its 100% interest in the Mining Licences as security to assist it to raise additional funding. These discussions have not been finalised.

The project remains robust with key operating parameters improved from the initial feasibility work. This includes a strong A$ gold price and a lower diesel price.

The Lorena gold project has additional gold resource potential at depth; and

Malachite has not forward sold any gold production.

About the Lorena Project

The Lorena Gold Project is located about 15km east of Cloncurry in northwest Queensland. A flotation production facility at Lorena to process 120,000 tonnes per annum of ore is currently being constructed to produce a gold concentrate. It is expected that in the first year of production the Lorena project will produce around 30,000 ozs of recovered gold from an open cut operation at an all in cash cost of around A$900/oz. The Lorena gold project has potential for resource extensions at depth which requires confirmation by drilling which is expected to occur as soon as funding allows.

About Lorena:

The Lorena Gold Project is located about 15km east of Cloncurry in northwest Queensland. BCD Resources NL can earn a 50% share in the Lorena Gold Project by constructing a processing plant to produce a gold concentrate at Lorena capable of treating 120,000 tpa of ore.

Malachite is the holder of six mining leases (ML7147, MLs 90192-90196)and two exploration permits

(EPM18189 and EPM18908) at Lorena.

Lorena has a total JORC Mineral Resource in the Measured, Indicated and Inferred categories containing approximately 56,600oz of gold at a 2g/t cut-off grade. This is made up by a resource of

179,500t at 8.8g/t Au containing 50,700oz of gold in the A Lode (16,700oz of gold in the Measured

category and 34,000oz of gold in the Indicated category), and a resource of 23,700t at 7.8g/t Au containing 5,900oz of gold in the B Lode (800oz of gold in the Indicated category and 5,100oz of gold in the Inferred category). These resources are within a potential open pit mine and are open at depth. The gold-bearing mineralisation is principally of massive and stringer sulphide type and copper-gold mineralisation occurs in conjunction with the gold mineralisation. Drill intersections including 5.9m @

12.9g/t Au (located 100m down-plunge from the defined resources) demonstrate the potential for

significantly increasing the Lorena resource Inventory.


The information in this report that relates to the Lorena Gold Project resource is extracted from the report entitled Resource Update at Lorena created and released to the ASX on 27 January 2012 (which contained a separate Competent Person Statement by Geos Mining) and is available to view on the Company's website: The Company confirms that it is not aware of any new information or data that materially affects the information included in the original market announcement and, in the case of estimates of Mineral Resources or Ore Reserves, that all material assumptions and technical parameters underpinning the estimates in the relevant market announcement continue to apply and have not materially changed. The Company confirms that the form and context in which the Competent Person's findings are presented have not been materially modified from the original market announcement.
