Ora Banda Investor Presentation February 2020

Gold explorer, Ora Banda Mining Ltd (ASX: OBM) has released an Investor Presentation - A Near Term A$ Gold Producer on 11 February 2020, highlighting its progress so far in unlocking value at The Davyhurst Gold Project, which is a “District Scale” project spanning 1,336 km2 of highly prospective greenstone belt covering a 200 strike km.

Davyhurst Project - Overview and Headways

Favourable Infrastructure: There is significant infrastructure in place such as Tailings Storage Facility, Mains Power to Site, Extensive Road Network (Rav 10 Rated), 160 Room Camp, Admin buildings, Core Shed, Workshops, Airstrip, Bore fields and Pipelines, that would facilitate a low-cost path to near term production.

Processing Plant: The presence of an existing Davyhurst Processing Plant with a capacity of 1.2Mtpa gives a big edge to Ora Banda with a cost to replace circa of $ 100 million and a recommissioning cost of ~$ 8.5 million, estimated on a EPCM basis. The time to recommission the plant will be around 24 weeks and Ora Banda is currently working on fast tracking a schedule.

The Robust Resource Inventory of 23.8Mt @ 2.6 g/t for 2 Moz Au at Davyhurst continues to expand as a result of the ongoing Infill drill out that has substantially increased high confidence Indicated Resource base. Besides, the regional exploration program is testing a number of advanced high-grade prospects.

Mining Reserve base of 2.8Mt @ 2.3 g/t for 213,000 oz Au is also building.

Ora Banda is now planning to commence the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) targeting Q3 CY2020. The DFS will underpin project development with “capital light” production restart.

Mine Development Program: The exploration and drilling activities along with the DFS are presently focussed at five advanced deposits that are highly prospective, close to the plant and well analysed to underpin production. These are Riverina, Waihi, Callion, Siberia and Golden Eagle with a Currently Mineral Resource estimate 11.9Mt @ 2.8g/t for 1.05Moz.
