2005 year of the rooster l.jpg
2005 - year of the rooster

The roosters

  • 1933, 45, 57, 69, 81 or 93

  • Outstanding performers – shine when centre of attention

    What to expect

  • nonsensical plans with simple things made complicated

  • overconfidence and disappointments

  • hard-line politics

    The best strategy

  • do not fuss

  • keep your eyes open and mouth shut

  • stick to practical and proven paths

  • check all facts and figures

  • avoid speculative ventures

China the case for consolidation l.jpg

China’s Major Gold Deposits

China - the case for consolidation

Sino Gold plans to rule the roost

The world s 4 th largest gold producer l.jpg
The world’s 4th largest gold producer …

  • Fractured, small scale operations

    • Average production approximately 16,000oz pa

    • No comprehensive development plan

    • Mining by explorers with orebodies mined to provide cashflow

    • Hand-to-mouth existences

    • Little attention to safety and environment

    • No exploration expenditure

    • Few lasting community benefits

  • Little modern exploration carried out

  • Geological prospectivity is high

    • Country structural issues are the main inhibitor to development

    • Ranked 10th (top quartile) on Fraser Institute 2003 survey

Ideally what is required l.jpg
Ideally, what is required …

  • Projects to be fully funded

  • Overall development plans to be implemented

  • Modern and efficient processes to be used

  • Systematic extraction of deposits through planned and coordinated operations

  • Safety and environmental standards to improve

  • Ongoing exploration expenditure to occur

  • Profitable operations to deliver social benefits

Government slogan “Scientific development”

Other industries are receiving investment l.jpg
Other industries are receiving investment

Foreign Direct Investment

Largest recipient of FDI globally

The mining industry is missing out l.jpg

Global Exploration Expenditure

The mining industry is missing out

Less than 1% of FDI into mining

Chinese government policy and direction l.jpg
Chinese Government policy and direction

  • Combine economic growth with social progress

  • Promote coordinated, balanced development

  • Aim to eliminate regional disparities – “Go West”

  • Eliminate waste of resources

  • Minimise environmental damage

  • Sustain economic development

MLR 2004 White Paper supports consolidation and foreign investment

What will emerge l.jpg
What will emerge?

  • Similar to Australia in 1970/80s – largest operation (1974) Tennant Creek 171,000oz p.a

  • 4-5 growth oriented, well capitalised groups

  • 2-3 may well be Chinese

  • Sino Gold will be there

    • unique platform

    • 10 years experience in China

    • world class asset being developed

    • intermediate scale gold production

    • strong operating cash flow

Hatching a big one l.jpg


Hatching a big one

37 Global Development Assets > 3.5m oz

Hatching a big one13 l.jpg


Hatching a big one

19 deposits not held by majors and a number are not being developed due to social, environmental or economic issues

Hatching a big one

2 development deposits >3.5M ozs not held by majors in Australiasia Jinfeng is one of them

Jinfeng project overview l.jpg
Jinfeng project overview

  • Will be China’s second largest gold mine

  • Equity of 82% in project

  • Phase 1 gold production in mid-2006

  • 1.2 million tpa, approx. 180,000oz pa

  • Ore Reserves of 2.1Moz – 88% conversion ratio

  • ~1Moz in open cut; 1.1Moz from underground Aug grade 5gpt

  • Mineral Resources of 3.5Moz upgrade of ~1.1Moz Inferred expected

  • Likelihood of more at depth

  • refractory ore type, using Biox® process, ~85% recovery

  • 12 year mine life

  • capital cost approx. US$70M

  • operating costs approx. US$183/oz

  • US$40 million project loan facility finalised – Stand Bank & HVB

Jinfeng has entered the development & construction phase

Jinfeng phase 2 expansion study l.jpg
Jinfeng phase 2 expansion study

  • Scoping study completed by Ausenco

  • U/G development brought forward to startyear 2 (end of commissioning year)

  • Plant upgrade from 1.2Mtpa to 1.8Mtpa atcost of US$14 million (±30%)

  • No increase in operating costs per tonne

  • Gold production of approx 300,000oz pa from open pit and underground

Will be China’s largest gold mine

Jinfeng project timetable l.jpg
Jinfeng project timetable

  • All Development Permits complete

  • Relocation of Affected Families complete

  • Access Road Upgrading commenced

  • Evaluate Site Earthworks Tenders commenced

  • Start Construction Q1 05

  • Complete Detailed Design Q2 05

  • First Gold Pour mid-06

  • Ramp-up to Design Capacity end-06

Jinfeng is a world class deposit l.jpg
Jinfeng is a world-class deposit

  • Geometry controlledby structural framework

  • Single mineralisationevent with high grade continuity and low nugget effect

  • F3 fault is dominant ore domain

  • Largest domains at F2-F3 fault intersection

  • F3 splays (eg F20) aresecondary mineralised structures

  • Open at depth 700m below surface, plunging to ESE

  • Over 50,000m of diamond drilling completed

  • Deposit defined over 750m strike length and to 700m depth

  • Average true thickness of 11m but is up to 30m thick

  • Contained gold ranges between 5,000 and 7,000oz per vertical metre in the well-defined central part of the deposit

Jinfeng s deep east extension l.jpg
Jinfeng’s “Deep-East” extension

  • Deep potential shown by strong intensity and widening anomalous arsenic values (shown by green lines)

  • Broad arsenic zone outlines fluid flow and structurally controlled Au (in red lines)

  • Drill rig being mobilised

Jinfeng s near mine opportunities l.jpg

Soil Geochemistry

Aero-Magnetics with Geological Interpretation

Trenching Samples

Jinfeng’s near-mine opportunities

  • Series of “near-mine” targets within the structural corridor

  • High-grade trench values indicate immediate drill targets

  • Series of “near-mine” targets within the structural corridor

  • High-grade trench values indicate immediate drill targets

  • Targets => anomalous geochemistry (up to 1.2gpt Au), rock chips and some IP

  • Strongly anomalous gold soil geochemistry on dome contact to be investigated

  • 442km2 ground contracted in JV’s

  • Geological mapping, geochemical sampling and ground geophysics is focused on near-mine prospects

  • Extensive regional database being built

  • US$2M exploration program underway

Exploration focus on supporting decisionto proceed with Phase 2
