WHY INVEST IN MONETA GOLD?
Canada’s most prolific gold producing mining camp producing over 85 million ounces of gold. Safe jurisdiction in Timmins, Ontario, Canada with a well-established infrastructure.
Current mineral resource estimate of 4.46 million ounces (“Moz”) indicated contained gold within 150.6 million tonnes (“Mt”) at a grade of 0.92 grams per tonne Au (“g/t”) and 8.29 Moz inferred contained ounces within 235.6 Mt at a grade of 1.09 g/t announced on September 7, 2022.
Moneta holds 100% of one of the largest undeveloped gold projects in Canada and is surrounded by major mining firms such as Pan American Silver, Agnico Eagle Mines, Newmont, and McEwen Mining.
The September 7, 2022 Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) demonstrated robust economics with C$1,459 million pre-tax Net Present Value 5% (“NPV”), C$1,066 million after-tax NPV5%, and a 31.7% after-tax Internal Rate of Return (“IRR”) at US$1,600/oz gold, and an exchange rate of US$0.78/C$.
The PEA also demonstrated a C$1,932 million cumulative after-tax cash flow, a mine life of 24 years, with average annual gold production of 261,014 oz in years 1 to 11 (192,666 oz for Life of Mine (“LOM”)) for 4,581,000 ounces total gold production LOM. Cash costs are estimated at US$910 per ounce with all-in sustaining costs (“AISC”) of US$1,073 per ounce of gold.
Highly leveraged to the gold price with after-tax NPV5% of C$1,339 million, 37.8% IRR and 2.2 year payback at spot US$1,700 per ounce gold price.
Regional scale exploration potential. Moneta Gold is the largest land holder by a gold development company in the Timmins eastern camp. The Tower Gold project captures 17 kms of the Destor-Porcupine Fault Zone corridor. The project currently hosts a NI-43-101 resource spanning only 9 kms. Resource growth potential exists along the remaining largely unexplored 8 kms.
A Pre-feasibility study (“PFS”) is underway and is expected to be completed in 2024.
