London-listed company KEFI Minerals plc (AIM: KEFI) is an exploration and development company focussed on gold and copper deposits, primarily in the highly prospective Arabian-Nubian Shield.
KEFI Minerals is currently progressing two gold projects:
- 95%-owned Tulu Kapi project in Ethiopia with a Probable Ore Reserve of 1.0 million ounces and Mineral Resources totalling 1.7 million ounces; and
- 40%-owned Jibal Qutman project in Saudi Arabia with Mineral Resources totalling 0.7 million ounces.
As the operator of these joint-venture projects, KEFI Minerals is well positioned to develop these projects prudently while continuing to add value through further exploration.
Planned gold production at Tulu Kapi is forecast to be circa 140,000 ounces per annum at an AISC of US$773/ounce over the initial seven years of mining the open pit.
