INSIDE INFORMATION: Kopy Goldfields AB's (publ) ("Kopy Goldfields" or "the Company") target is to produce 56 koz to 59 koz of gold equivalent (GE) in 2021, an increase of 5-11% compared to 53.1 koz of GE produced in 2020. The Company plans capital expenditures of around USD 56 million in 2021 on production growth and exploration projects. The expenditures will be funded through existing available debt facilities and expected cash flow from production.
In line with the plans to double gold production by 2025 to more than 100 koz per year, Kopy Goldfields' target is GE production of 56-59 koz in 2021, an increase of 5-11% compared to the production of 53.1 koz in 2020.
The increase in gold production is primarily expected from the Yubileyniy project, where the Company aims both to increase the output from heap leach (HL) operations and to commission the 250 ktpa processing capacity in Q4 2021. In addition, some production growth is expected from alluvial mining, which significantly underperformed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
The Company plans to increase capital construction expenditures in 2021 to around USD 48 million in line with long-term development plans to increase gold production. The key production growth projects will include:
- Maluytka project, where Kopy Goldfields plans to process 1.5 mtpa of ore through HL operations and initiate gold production in 2023.
- Yubileyniy project, where the Company is continuing construction activities to extend processing capacity to 250 ktpa by Q4 2021. In parallel, the Company will develop the underground (UG) mine down to 850 meters horizon above sea level.
- Perevalnoe project, which will transform from open pit operations to underground mining in 2021. In addition, HL operations with annual capacity of 200 kt of ore will commence in 2021 with initial gold production anticipated in 2022.
In addition, the Company plans several exploration projects in 2021 with a budget of approximately USD 8 million:
- Yubileyniy project, Khabarovsk region: 12,500 meters drilling program at the Krasivoe deposit targeting gold mineralisation at depth.
- Perevalnoe project, Khabarovsk region: 6,000 meters drilling program on the flanks and within the vicinity of the Perevalnoe deposit.
- Maly Patom project, Irkutsk region: Continue prospecting within the license area including 1,500 meters drilling program.
- Krasivoe deposit, Khabarovsk region: Commence prospecting within the Ket-Kap area including 6,000 meters drilling program.
- Krasny project, Irkutsk region: 26,000 meters drilling and exploration program to reserves.
- Continue alluvial exploration activities.
The initiated capital construction and exploration programs will be financed through existing available debt facilities and cash flows from current gold production.
 Gold is the primary product of the Company. Silver production in 2020 totalled 97 koz (3,026 kg), which was equivalent to 1.36 koz (42.15 kg) of gold and represented 2.5% of the total 2021 gold equivalent production. The conversion ratio from silver to gold varies based on the relation between actual gold and silver prices: for the twelve months of 2020 the applied average conversion ratio for silver was 1:72 Ag/Au.
