Excerpts from the interview below:

TGR: Would you tell us what Project 5 Million and Project 10 Million look like?

PB: Project 5 Million is a very capital-efficient growth project. Essentially it optimizes the throughput capacity around what we call the process bottleneck, which is the milling circuit. It takes the milling circuit from current operations of about 3.6 million tons per annum (3.6 Mtpa) to 5 Mtpa. This will cost just over $20 million and involves upgrading simple things like pumps, tailings lines and gold recovery processes. We have started work on that and expect the project to be complete before the end of this year.

TGR: What kind of production would you be expecting to get from Project 5 Million by the end of the year?

PB: Project 5 Million maintains our production profile at current rates of 230,000-240,000 ounces for about 20 to 21 years. If we didn't invest in Project 5 Million, we would see a gradual decline in production in the coming years. It's a very low-capital entry project, with payback in just over a quarter.
