Dikulushi • On Care & Maintenance since Dec 08 • postponement of the U/G development • uneconomical in present Cu price environment • Start-up conditional upon Cu market improvement • resource open at depth and to the east • drilling program at depth Dikulushi processing plant 16
Mutoshi • Scope drilling program completed across Mutoshi tenement in 2008 • Significant Cu and Co mineralisation • Potential for large bulk oxide mining and processing operation • Engineering Cost Study completed on transition from existing HMS to SX-EW processing • Further metallurgical test work and infill drilling required Anvil tenements cover 29% of the Kolwezi Klippe Mutoshi tenement area: 105km2 17
