Summary for Q1/17 Stub: Ore, Concentrate and Saleable Metal Production
(Delivered to Warehouse)

(see Note 1 below)


  • Production of 4,006 tonnes of copper concentrate, representing a 2% decrease over Q4/16 resulting from a slightly lower copper head grade during the quarter.

  • Dry tonnes milled of 69,609 tonnes, equal to Q4/16 and a 20% increase over Q1/16, driven by an increase in production from the Lower Footwall Zone ('LFZ');

    • 1,057 tonnes of saleable copper
      (a 1% increase over Q4/16 and a 15% decrease over Q1/16)

    • 1,619 ounces of saleable gold
      (a 12% increase over Q4/16 and a 12% decrease over Q1/16)

  • Head grades of copper averaged 1.7% for the quarter (a 6% decrease over Q4/16); gold averaged 1.1 g/t (6% decrease over Q4/16). Grades for the 3 month period were in line with plan with the majority of LFZ ore now being sourced from either capital development or from the first post-pillar cut and fill ('PPCF') test stope outside of the known reserve. Once the LFZ is fully developed, ore will be primarily sourced from larger stopes.
