Investment summary

After five years of gold production via both gravitational and heap leach recovery methods, Auriant’s Tardan plant is now being remodelled to a single carbon-in-leach (CIL) process flow route, which is expected to improve metallurgical recoveries by c 31% and halve total cash costs to c US$523/oz. Simulataneously, Auriant is also completing a DFS on Kara-Beldyr. Combined, the two are expected to achieve management’s goal of 3t (or 96,453oz) of gold output per year from FY22 (vs 809.5kg or 26,049oz in FY17 and 500kg or 16,076oz in FY18e).
