Northgate Minerals Releases Final Feasibility Study for the Young-Davidson Project

12.4% Pre-Tax Internal Rate of Return at $825/oz Gold Price

VANCOUVER, Jan. 25 /CNW/ - (All figures in US dollars except where noted) Northgate Minerals Corporation (TSX: NGX, NYSE Amex: NXG) is pleased to announce positive results from the Feasibility Study on its 100% owned Young-Davidson project in Matachewan, Ontario. The Feasibility Study was completed by AMEC Americas Limited ("AMEC"), an independent and internationally-recognized engineering firm and confirms a 15-year mine-life with average annual production of 180,000 ounces of gold at a net cash cost of $351 per ounce.

                     Highlights of the Feasibility Study
    The Feasibility Study incorporates the proven and probable gold reserve of
2.8 million ounces that was announced in July 2009(1). Highlights of the
Feasibility Study presented below are based on a gold price of $825 per ounce
and an exchange rate of US$/Cdn$0.90:
    -   Average annual production of 180,000 ounces of gold at a net cash
        cost of $351 per ounce.
        -  After the first two years of open pit production, average annual
           production for the remaining mine life will increase to 190,000
           ounces of gold at a net cash cost of $341 per ounce.
    -   15-year mine-life at a mill throughput of 6,000 tonnes per day
    -   Initial capital cost of $339 million.
    -   Sustaining capital costs of $236 million during the life of the mine.
    -   Pre-tax operating cash flow of $646 million, net present value
        ("NPV") 5% of $264 million, with an Internal Rate of Return ("IRR")
        of 12.4%.
    -   Targeting production in 2012.
     Technical Report filed on SEDAR ( on August 27, 2009.

Ken Stowe, President and CEO, stated: "Today, we have taken another step towards realizing our vision of building a financially robust and long-life gold mine in one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world. Following on the Pre-feasibility Study that was released in July 2009, the Feasibility Study that was recently completed confirms solid project economics, with annual gold production of 180,000 ounces and operating costs well below the current industry average. At today's prices, this translates into a healthy rate of return of over 20%. With the Feasibility Study work behind us, we look forward to the year ahead, where we will focus our efforts on the detailed engineering, underground development, permitting and construction activities. In addition, we will continue to explore targets on the Young-Davidson property outside of the 2.8 million reserve envelope where there is potential to add higher grade open pit and underground reserves that are not part of the current Feasibility Study and would positively impact the early years of the project."

Young-Davidson Feasibility Study Results

The Feasibility Study is based on the same 2.8 million ounces of proven and probable gold reserves announced on July 14, 2009 when the results of the Pre-Feasibility Study were released. The Feasibility Study outlines a project with average annual production of 180,000 ounces of gold at a net cash cost of $351 per ounce over a 15-year mine-life. After the first two years of open pit production, average annual production over the remaining mine life will rise to 190,000 ounces of gold per year from underground at a net cash cost of $341 per ounce. The cash cost of production for the mine is forecast to be well below current industry average due to the favorable geometry, strong continuity and thickness of the orebody, as well as the very competent nature of the host rock, which allows low cost bulk mining techniques to be employed.

Operating costs have been developed from first principles and are based on staffing levels, consumables and expenditures required to support the mine and its associated processing, maintenance and administrative activities. Unit operating costs are projected to be Cdn$31.63 per metric tonne ("mt") of ore, which are approximately the same as they were in the Pre-Feasibility Study, although the confidence of the cost projection has increased significantly. The net cash cost per ounce of gold in US dollars has increased slightly from the Pre-Feasibility study stage, but solely as a result of the change in base case exchange rate assumption from US$/Cdn$0.85 to US$/Cdn$0.90.

Engineering investigations during the Feasibility phase of the project focused on design and development of the surface and underground facilities, including the shafts and hoisting facility, the tailings storage facility, the processing plant and the upgraded 47 kilometre ("km") transmission line connection to the Hydro One grid. This work resulted in a modest increase in initial capital cost of the project compared with the Pre-Feasibility Study. Underground production was advanced by taking advantage of the existing mine infrastructure to more quickly develop the new production shaft and improved sequencing of tonnes from the open pit.

The pre-production capital cost estimate is $339.4 million, up $46.9 million from the estimate of $292.5 million contained in the Pre-Feasibility Study. Of the increase, $17 million arises from the change in the base case exchange rate assumption and the balance from refinement of capital estimates appropriate for a Feasibility Study quality estimate. Capital costs herein are expressed in Q4-2009 US dollars, but these costs are largely Canadian dollar denominated. Table 2 contains a summary of the economics of the Feasibility Study.

The Young-Davidson Project is expected to generate $646 million in pre-tax operating cash flow and has a pre-tax NPV (5%) of $264 million and a pre-tax IRR of 12.4% at the base case gold price assumption of $825 per ounce and an exchange rate of US$/Cdn$0.90. The pre-tax and after tax metrics for the Young-Davidson project, at a variety of gold prices, are shown in the following table:

Project Update

During the fourth quarter of 2009, shaft dewatering activities and ramp development resumed at site in order to continue advanced exploration and establish the underground access conditions necessary for the modified construction concept for the new production shaft. Rather than blind sinking a new production shaft from surface, it was decided to deepen the existing Matachewan Consolidated Mine ("MCM") shaft from 775 metres ("m") to 1,515m and raise a new main production shaft in two sections from the bottom of the known reserve at 1,515m. This construction method will advance the underground development schedule and significantly increase the certainty of completing the underground development according to the Feasibility Study schedule.

    A wide variety of other activities have also commenced in preparation for
a final development decision:
    -   Purchase orders totalling $6.75 million for underground equipment,
        for use in the ramp development, has been issued and the equipment is
        scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2010.
    -   Bid proposals for the shaft development have been received and are
        currently being evaluated in order to support an award by Northgate
    -   Discussions are underway for an EPCM contract for the project.
    -   Several permit applications have been submitted to regulators and
        preparation of others is well advanced.
    -   Hydro One is scheduled to complete the Environmental Assessment
        process in February 2010 for upgrading the 47 km of the 115 kilovolts
        (kV) transmission line from Kirkland Lake to Matachewan Junction.
    -   The hiring process of key members of Young-Davidson's project team
        has been initiated.
    -   Northgate has received indicative terms for project financing from a
        wide variety of major banks who are interested to provide financing
        for the project.


The Young-Davidson property is located 3 km west of the town of Matachewan, in the gold-producing Abitibi greenstone belt of northern Ontario. It is readily accessible to, and serviced by, surrounding mining communities such as Kirkland Lake (60 km) and Timmins (165 km) via Highways 566, 66 and 101.

Electric power for the mine site will be supplied by upgrading approximately 47 km of an existing 115 kV power line and installing 7 km of a new 115 kV line and a mine site transformer station.

The mining operations will consist of an open pit and underground mine. Access to the underground mine will be via the ramp, deepening the existing MCM shaft and the development of a new production shaft. Surface facilities will consist of a modern 6,000 tpd process plant utilizing conventional gold processing technology. Additional surface facilities to support the Young-Davidson mine will include an administration/engineering building, a warehouse and a maintenance shop. The tailings impoundment facility location has been selected to incorporate and remediate an historic tailings site.

The Young-Davidson property sits on the site of two past producing mines, both with track records of successful mining and simple metallurgy, producing approximately one million ounces of gold between the mid 1930's and the mid 1950's. All of the existing underground workings left by the previous owners are in excellent condition. The photos below show the head frame and hoist room building as well as entrance to the ramp providing access underground.

Environment, Permitting and Community Relations

Environmental and permitting activities are ongoing and open houses will continue to be held with the local communities and First Nations, where there is strong community support for the Young-Davidson project. Northgate has also been working cooperatively with the Matachewan First Nation and on July 2, 2009, the two parties signed an Impact and Benefits Agreement.

Mineral Reserves and Resources

The open pit and underground mineral reserves have not changed since the release of the Pre-Feasibility Study and assume a gold price of US$725 per ounce and an exchange rate of US$/Cdn$0.85. Proven and probable reserves total 2.8 million ounces of gold and are detailed in the following table:

        Cdn$11.40 and G&A costs of Cdn$2.75 and a gold recovery of 92.5%. A
        2.3 g/t gold cut-off grade was applied to the longhole retreat mining
        method to account for the additional capital development and lower
        productivity of this mining method. No cut-off grade was applied for

The Feasibility Study confirms that the project provides strong returns in the current economic environment. The present reserve base is an excellent starting point and will likely be expanded by upgrading the mineral resources into the reserve category through additional work. Current project economics do not factor in the 6 million tonnes of inferred and 132,000 tonnes of indicated resources as outlined the in the Table 4. The mineral resources are based on a gold price of $750 per ounce (Cdn$806 per ounce) and estimation parameters as documented in the January 2009 Technical Report. The Young-Davidson orebody remains open down plunge below existing reserves and resources.

        incremental cut-off grade and minimum true thickness of 3m. No cut-
        off grade was applied for silver.

In 2010, Northgate will focus its exploration efforts on geological settings known to host gold mineralization elsewhere on the property, which would have the potential to add to reserves and provide ore to the mill during the early years of production. Part of this exploration will focus on the mafic volcanic rocks from which there has been historic gold production at a higher grade and where the Company recently reported near surface gold discoveries, including hole YD09-120, which intersected 7.6 g/t gold over 13.5m.

Northgate will also be targeting what is believed to be the fault offset of the main Young-Davidson gold deposit, which is in close proximity to the planned infrastructure.
