Projects in Hand

(1) Yaramoko Gold Mine, Burkina Faso

The Yaramoko Mine Complex consists of two high-grade underground gold mines: the 55 Zone and Bagassi South. Annual gold production in 2020 is expected to be between 120,000 and 130,000 ounces.

Yaramoko – Resource Growth

55 Zone

55 Zone high-grade shoot extends to 1.2 km below surface

  • 55 Zone remains open at depth
  • Significant history of resource replacement and conversion of Inferred to Indicated Resource
  • Improved understanding of key mineralization controls through detailed mapping and supported by geostatistics
  • Structural repetition of high-grade zones becoming apparent
  • Planning a dedicated underground drill platform in H2 2020
    • 14,000 m infill program for resource replacement
    • Depth extension drilling
    • Testing of parallel structures

Bagassi South

Bagassi South is the second high-grade underground gold mine on the Yaramoko property and consists of two gold deposits: QV1 Zone and QV' (QV Prime) Zone.

The QV1 Zone is the main deposit of the Bagassi South project and is geologically similar to the 55 Zone.

QV1 Structure offers potential for additional resource upgrade

  • Substantial upgrade of Inferred to Indicated and increase in Inferred
  • Deep drilling down plunge highlights structural continuity
  • Parallel shear structure: QV'

(2) Séguéla Gold Project, Côte d'Ivoire

  • Roxgold acquired the Séguéla Gold Project in April 2019
  • Property permit area of 36,300 hectares
  • Accessible year round by road
  • Located 240 km northwest of Yamoussoukro
  • Town of Séguéla is 20 km to the southeast
  • The Séguéla Project consists of the resource-defined, near surface Antenna, Agouti, Boulder and Ancien deposits that are ideally located near existing infrastructure including grid power, transport and water resources
  • Ancien is the highest grade deposit, which is expected to fuel first 3 years of production
  • Reported an updated Mineral Resource Estimate for the Séguéla Gold Project in January 2020 with Total Indicated Mineral Resources increasing 7% to 529,000 ounces and Inferred Mineral Resources increasing 1,286% to 471,000 ounces
  • A Preliminary Economic Assessment was announced for Séguéla Gold Project in April 2020 with after-tax NPV of $268 million and 66% IRR at a gold price of $1,450 per ounce and an NPV of $379 million and 88% IRR at a gold price of $1,730 per ounce
  • Séguéla is expected to produce over 100,000 oz of gold per year at all-in sustaining cash costs of $750/oz
  • Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) on schedule to be filed in Q2/20
  • Advancing towards Feasibility expected in early 2021

Exploration Upside

Portfolio of near surface high grade deposits

  • High success rate with 5 out of 7 targets initially identified returning significant mineralization
  • Séguéla has over 28 highly prospective exploration targets with potential to increase resource base with low cost near surface ounces
  • Recent aeromagnetic program has highlighted several additional target areas and favourable structural repetitions (ex. Elephant)
  • At least 3 emerging structural corridors
  • Active artisanal workings at P1, P7 (Antenna analogues), Folly (Ancien analogue) recently identified
  • Eastern and Southern margins remain only lightly explored

Opportunities & Next Steps:

  • Delineating additional mineral resources and extend mine life through exploration
  • Optimize infrastructure
  • Underground potential at Ancien, Agouti, etc.
  • Testing of additional targets

(3) Boussoura Gold Project, Burkina Faso

Roxgold's new high grade discovery

Located approximately 190km south of Yaramoko, RC and core drilling at the Boussoura project has led to a new high grade discovery at Galgouli, and excellent results following up historic drilling at Fofora (refer to Company press release February 3 and 20, 2020).

  • Boussoura has seen little formal exploration activities since being acquired in July 2014
  • Project lies on the same greenstone belt as Yaramoko and other deposits (ex. Houndé, Mana)
  • Roxgold has drilled over 6,500 m in 40 holes
  • New high grade discovery at Boussoura
