About Yellowhead Mining Inc.
Yellowhead's Harper Creek Project is a copper-gold-silver volcanogenic sulphide deposit located in south-central British Columbia, approximately 150 kilometers by highway north of Kamloops. Feasibility Study results announced on March 2, 2012 showed a pre-tax NPV8 of $749.7 million with an IRR of 20.2% based on long-term metal price projections of US$2.50/lb Cu, US$1,250/oz Au and US$20/oz Ag, and a US$:Cdn$ exchange rate of 0.86:1. The Feasibility Study demonstrated a 28 year project life at a milling rate of 70,000 tpd (25.55Mt/y). The project as designed is expected to produce a total of 3.63 billion pounds of copper, 372,000 ounces of gold and 14 million ounces of silver contained in concentrate.
At a 0.14% Cu cutoff, Proven Reserves are estimated at 401.18Mt @ 0.272% Cu, 0.031g/t Au and 1.15g/t Ag; Probable Reserves 303.22Mt @ 0.248% Cu, 0.027g/t Au and 1.13g/t for a total Proven and Probable Reserve of 704.4Mt @ 0.262% Cu, 0.029g/t Au and 1.14g/t Ag.
The Feasibility Study is based on an updated resource (refer to news release dated February 16, 2012). At a 0.20% Cu cutoff Measured Resources are estimated at 348.5Mt at 0.31 % Cu, 0.034g/t Au, 1.3g/t Ag; Indicated Resources at 466.5Mt at 0.28% Cu, 0.03g/t Au, 1.3g/t Ag for a total Measured and Indicated Resource of 815Mt at 0.29% Cu, 0.032g/t Au and 1.3g/t Ag (5.26 billion pounds of copper contained). A further 80.17Mt at 0.30% Cu, 0.033g/t Au, and 1.4g/t Ag are estimated in the Inferred Resource category (0.53 billion pounds of copper contained) and is reported as waste in the mine production schedule until it can be upgraded by additional infill drilling.
Yellowhead has a 100% interest in the Harper Creek Project (subject to the payment of a 3% NSR royalty capped at $2.5 million, adjusted for inflation and an additional 2.5% NSR royalty on an estimated 1.5 million tonnes of ore which is expected to be mined beginning in year 16 of the Feasibility Study mine plan).
A Preliminary Economic Assessment Report, which demonstrated the technical and economic viability of the Project, was completed at the end of March 2011, filed on SEDAR on April 1, 2011 and can be viewed on www.sedar.com. The Feasibility Study will be reported in a NI-43-101 compliant Technical Report to be filed on or before April 1, 2012.
