Resolute Mining Limited About Resolute

Resolute is a successful gold miner with more than 25 years of continuous production. The Company is an experienced explorer, developer, and operator having operated nine gold mines across Australia and Africa which have produced in excess of 7 million ounces of gold. Resolute currently operates two mines, the Syama Gold Mine in Africa and the Ravenswood Gold Mine in Australia, and is one of the largest gold producers listed on the Australian Securities Exchange with FY18 guidance of 300,000 ounces of gold production at All-In Sustaining Costs of A$1,280/oz (US$960/oz).

Resolute’s flagship Syama Gold Mine in Mali is a robust long life asset comprising parallel sulphide and oxide processing plants. The move to underground mining is expected to extend the mine life beyond 2028. The Ravenswood Gold Mine in Queensland demonstrates Resolute’s significant underground expertise in successfully mining the Mt Wright ore body, where operations are expected to cease in FY18. The Company’s next stage of development in Queensland is the return to large scale open pit mining at the Ravenswood Expansion Project which will extend the Company’s local operations for a further 13 years to at least 2029. In Ghana, the Company has completed a feasibility study on the Bibiani Gold Project focused on the development of an underground operation requiring modest capital and using existing plant infrastructure. Resolute is also exploring over 6,600km2 of potential world class tenure in West Africa and Australia with active drilling programs in Mali, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire and Queensland, Australia. The Company is focused on growth through exploration and development and is active in reviewing new opportunities to build shareholder value.
