Elemental Royalties Notes Steady State Operations Achieved at Karlawinda, 24,329 Ounces Gold Production in Q3 2021
October 12, 2021 – Vancouver, BC: Elemental Royalties Corp. (“Elemental” or “the Company”) (TSX-V: ELE, OTCQX: ELEMF) is pleased to note the recent update by Capricorn Metals Limited (ASX: CMM) (“Capricorn”) announcing Steady State Operations have been achieved at the Karlawinda Gold Project. Elemental acquired a 2% NSR on Karlawinda in February 2021.
“Steady state production from our largest royalty with a 10+ year mine life is a major milestone,” Frederick Bell, CEO of Elemental commented. “Karlawinda will almost double our royalty revenue and underpins the long-term outlook for Elemental with increased diversification and exposure to a tier 1 jurisdiction in Western Australia.
With multiple performance metrics already being exceeded, the potential for production to outperform guidance is particularly exciting and emphasises the optionality in Elemental’s high-quality portfolio of producing royalties.”
- During the September 2021 quarter, Capricorn completed commissioning and ramp-up activities, achieving guided throughput rates on a steady-state basis
- Gold production of 24,329 ounces with an above budget 92.6% recovery
- Mining volumes expected to increase in the December 2021 quarter with the second mining fleet now onsite and operating at full capacity
- From August mill throughput has been above budgeted throughput rate for harder laterite ore
- Processing plant throughput and grade expected to increase as higher grade and soft oxide ore mined in December 2021 quarter
- Construction and commissioning of two additional CIL tanks providing additional leaching time for anticipated higher processing plant throughput is nearing completion
- Production for the year ending June 30, 2022, is expected to be 110,000 – 120,000 ounces inclusive of commissioning production
- Multiple near-pit exploration projects advanced during the quarter and are awaiting assays
