Lydian International Limited Announces Positive Results from Updated Feasibility Study for the Amulsar Gold Project

Lydian International Limited announced the results of an updated feasibility study for its 100%-owned Amulsar Gold Project in Southern Armenia. The results of the study demonstrate Amulsar as a compelling opportunity for the development of a large scale, low cost operation utilizing open pit mining and conventional heap leach processing. Highlights: Total recoverable gold of 2.1 million ounces over a 10.4 year mine life; Gold production averaging over 200,000 ounces per year; Initial capital costs of $426 million; Low all-in sustaining costs of $701 per ounce of gold; 84% gold recoveries and 2.8:1 strip ratio; Accelerated after tax-cash flows in first five years to support early payback and project financing; and After-tax unleveraged IRR of 20.2% and NPV1 of $306 million based on a discount rate of 5% and a gold price of $1,250 per ounce. Results of the study may be enhanced by additional drilling which could potentially convert inferred mineral resources into proven and probable mineral reserves and define additional potential resources and reserves. The study incorporates a new site layout to accommodate the relocation of the heap leach facility to the site endorsed by the joint Working Group with the Government of Armenia. Nominal throughput of 10 million tonnes of ore per year is planned from the outset, with processing of higher grade ore during the initial five years. New estimates of mineral resources and reserves accompany the updated feasibility study. Amulsar Gold Project Description: The Amulsar Gold Project is located in Southern Armenia approximately 115 km south-west of the capital city of Yerevan and covers an area of approximately 56 km. The Amulsar property reaches a maximum elevation of 2,988 m, with the heap leach facility located in a valley at lower elevations providing a nominal top surface elevation of 1,856 m. All major infrastructural needs are readily accessible. The town of Jermuk is located 15 km to the north of the site and Gorayk is 6 km to the south. The town of Gndevaz is located 1 km north of the heap leach facility. Current vehicular access to the heap leach facility is mainly via an unpaved road extending east from the highway to Gndevaz and Jermuk. There is also a sealed highway linking the Amulsar project site to Yerevan. Other adjacent infrastructure includes high tension power lines and substations, a gas pipeline, a fiber optic internet cable and on-site sources of water. The company's planned operations contemplate an owner-operated mining fleet delivering run-of-mine ore at a nominal rate of 10 Mtpy from the three open pits to the primary crusher. The ore will be reduced in size through a three-stage crushing facility from 700 mm to 100% passing 12.5 mm. The crushed ore will be transported approximately 6.2 km via overland conveyors to a crushed ore stockpile. From there, it will be reclaimed by belt feeders underneath the stockpile and transferred to a load out bin by a conveyor. Lime will be added to the ore on the conveyor and trucks will haul the ore approximately half a kilometer to the heap leach pad for stacking. The planned heap leach facility consists of the leach pad and collection ponds. The leach pad will be constructed in three phases with a total ore heap stacking capacity of 104 Mt over the 10.4 year project life. The collection ponds will include the process pond and two storm event ponds. Process solution and storm/snowmelt water will flow from the leach pad and will gravity drain through a spillway from the pad to the process pond. Spillways will connect the ponds for potential runoff overflows.
