El Sukari Gold Mine is loacated some west of Marsa Alam within a 160 sq km license area for the Project. Surrounded by wide wadis and stunning mountain ranges, Sukari hill has hosted varying ancient mining communities spanning thousands of years.The Sukari deposit is hosted by a large porphyry body, which is located on a regional shear zone providing favorable drilling conditions. The Project is now at an advanced stage of development, with construction having commenced in quarter two of 2007 and commercial production expected before year end.
Sukari consists of four primary zones that contain varying degrees of ore: Amun, Ra, Gazelle and Pharaoh. The open pit is based on the Main and Hapi ore zones which have been drilled extensively in the Amun and Ra/ Gazelle areas revealing various high-grade zones.

Current Work Programme

The Sukari Gold Project is expected to mine 142 Mt ore @ 1.4 g/t Au, producing 6.4 Moz gold. A further 705 Mt of waste material is also expected to be mined resulting in a waste to ore strip ratio of 5:1.
Ore and waste will be mined using conventional open pit mining methods. The operation is planned to utilize selective mining techniques to separate ore and waste. Provision has been made for drilling and blasting all primary and oxide
Ore will be hauled to the run of mine pad next to the Processing Plant and either direct tipped to the crusher or stockpiled for future reclaim at the 4 Mtpa Process Plant throughput rate.
Mining will be progressed at an increased rate compared to processing; approximately 5 Mt of ore is expected to be mined and 4 Mt of ore will be processed annually. Operating at an increased mining rate allows the cut-off grade for feed to the Plant (referred to as “cutover” grade) to be increased in the early years of the schedule. This in turn increases the metal output and project revenue in these early years, thus increasing the discounted operating surplus cash flow. According to current schedules, the low-grade stockpile produced as a result of applying a cutover grade will be processed after mining has ceased, extending the current operating life of the project for a further six years. As a result, the average milled grade during the mining period is forecast to be 1.87 g/t Au, compared to 0.66 g/t Au for the low-grade stockpile.
