Nickel Operations

During the first quarter, the mine production proceeded largely in-line with the mine plan for 2011. Total milled tonnes for the quarter were 2% greater than planned (140,000 tonnes), although the average nickel grade at 0.56% Ni was lower than the projected 0.62% Ni. The lower grade of ore was partially offset by higher average recoveries, resulting in the production of 547 tonnes of nickel contained in concentrate for the quarter. This compares to the target of 569 tonnes of nickel in the mine plan, a deficit of 4%. In addition to the nickel, the Hitura mine produced 22 tonnes of cobalt in concentrate (compared to a target of 24 tonnes). In March, one of the ball mills (the mine has two ball mills and one rod mill) developed an unexpected problem, and was taken out of commission for three weeks for repair and lining replacement. Notwithstanding this problem, milled tonnes for the month of March exceeded the target of 47,000 tonnes by 9%.

Month Milled (t) Con (t) Ni t in Con. Co t in Con.
January 49,049 2,399 211 8.2
February 42,419 1,791 155 6.2
March 51,444 2,161 181 7.5

Q1 Total 142,912 6,380 547 22


Total operating costs for Q1 averaged EUR38.0/tonne of ore milled. Total operating costs per pound of nickel in concentrate for Q1 averaged EUR4.51 (approx.US$ 6.08 based on USD:EUR of 1.35).
