Study and exploration The earliest references to Arctic exploration are shrouded in obscurity as a result both of inaccurate ideas of the shape of the Earth and of primitive navigation techniques, which make it difficult to interpret early maps and accounts of voyages.
After-tax free cash flow "FCF" includes royalties. The incremental value and returns of Phase 2 further enhance what was an already robust project and will result in the Asanko Gold Mine becoming one of the largest gold mining operations in Africa with lowest quartile all-in sustaining costs.
This highly competitive cost base, which includes corporate overheads, has always been a key driver in our development strategy. In addition, the expansion of the processing facility to integrate the Phase 2 flotation plant with the Phase 1 CIL plant will give the Asanko Gold Mine total operating flexibility to handle all the different types of orebodies that are currently within the mine plan as well as give us flexibility to fully optimize near mine deposits that may be discovered in the future.
The process plant design and therefore all the major equipment remains the same, however there are some savings in electrical reticulation, water supply and fire suppressions systems where the expanded plant can leverage off the infrastructure in place for Phase 1.
Capital saving in camp costs, additional vehicles, reductions in crop compensation etc. The conveyor represents the most optimal method when compared to the various other options that were reviewed including trucking, rail or piping.
A full breakdown of the capital cost estimate for Phase 2 is detailed in Table 7 of the Executive Summary. Construction Schedule The Phase 2 expansion will take approximately 18 months to build, with production from Esaase targeted to come on stream in Q1 This timetable is predicated on a positive investment decision from the Board in Q2 The decision on whether to proceed on this timetable will be subject to a number of factors including the prevailing gold price and a suitable funding solution for the Phase 2 capital expenditure.
Phase 2 Funding The Phase 2 capital requirements are expected to be funded from internal cash flows and a planned refinancing of the existing debt facility. The cash flow profile of the expanded project allows for a significant amount of further debt to be raised while maintaining a conservative debt service coverage ratio.
The existing funding package from RK Mine Finance has very flexible terms and will allow for a cost-effective re-financing. Asanko expects to engage in discussions with its existing lender and other potential funding providers in H2 with a view to having a funding solution substantially agreed by the time the DFS is published.
A detailed Phase 2 technical presentation is available on the Company's website at: For further information please visit: About Asanko Gold Inc. Asanko's vision is to become a mid-tier gold mining company that maximizes value for all its stakeholders. The mine is being developed in phases.
Phase 1 is fully financed, permitted and under construction. First gold is expected in Q1with steady state production ofounces per annum in Q2 Asanko is managed by highly skilled and successful technical, operational and financial professionals.
The Company is strongly committed to the highest standards for environmental management, social responsibility, and health and safety for its employees and neighbouring communities. Phase 1 is targeting steady-state production, averagingounces per year, by Q2 The Phase 2 expansion envisions one large, multi-pit mine producing an average ofounces of gold over a To view Figure 1 please click on the following link: Muller, of CJM Consulting.
