Capstone Extends Pinto Valley Mine Life to 2026

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --



(all amounts in US dollars)

Capstone Mining Corp. ("Capstone") (TSX: CS) today announced the results of the Pre-Feasibility Study - Mine Life Extension ("PV2 PFS") for its wholly owned Pinto Valley Mine in Arizona, US, which extends the mine life by 8 years from 2018 to 2026.

Highlights

  • Average annual production for the first five years is 128.4 million pounds of copper contained in concentrate and 6.6 million pounds of copper cathode. Life of Mine ("LOM") annual production of 119.5 million pounds of copper contained in concentrate plus 6.3 million pounds of cathode copper, and 1.4 million pounds of molybdenum and 235,000 ounces of silver credited to concentrate annually.
  • After-tax net present value (NPV), discounted at 8%, of $738 million.
  • Expected LOM C1 cash costs[1] are estimated to be $2.00 per pound of payable copper (net of copper cathodes, molybdenum and silver by-product credits).
  • The LOM strip ratio is 0.65:1.
  • Total sustaining capital costs estimated to be $187.9 million over 12.3 years.
  • Pinto Valley Mine will operate to 2026 under the PV2 PFS parameters, including Proven and Probable Mineral Reserves of 232 million tonnes at 0.33% copper.
  • With an economic cut-off grade ("COG") of 0.18% copper, the Mineral Resource has increased by 61% to 1,563 million tonnes at 0.30% copper from 968 million tonnes at 0.35% copper with a 0.25% COG published in December 2013. The contained copper within the Mineral Resource increases by 40%.
  • Capstone believes there is potential to extend the operational life beyond the PV2 reserve life if Mineral Resources not included in the PV2 mine plan can be successfully converted into Mineral Reserves. Capstone intends to commence engineering and economic studies to consider all remaining current Mineral Resources not included in the PV2 mine plan and their potential for development beyond 2026.

"The Pinto Valley PFS has validated the purchase price and confirms our position as a leading intermediate copper producer," said Darren Pylot, President and CEO of Capstone. "Completion of the PV2 PFS extends the mine life to 2026 and provides us with the platform to stabilize operations, gain efficiencies and gives us the opportunity to take a longer-term view towards the future of the Pinto Valley Mine in Arizona."

"The PV2 PFS does not include all the projected impact of the process improvements that are underway at the mine, which we expect to generate cost savings in the years ahead," continued Mr. Pylot. "As well as pursuing operating efficiencies, we have started the work required to evaluate a possible mine life extension beyond 2026 and a potential increase in throughput."

Pre-Feasibility  Study

The PV2 PFS project was directed by Capstone with contributions from Kirkham Geosystems Ltd. (geology, Resource estimation), Independent Mining Consultants Inc. (reserve, geotechnical, mine design and schedule, equipment selection), KWM Consulting Inc. (metallurgy, mill operation), AMEC Environment & Infrastructure Inc. (tailings), Stantec (Infrastructure and PFS report compilation), SRK (US), Inc. (environmental), and Adam M Consulting Inc. (financial modelling). Personnel from each of these companies will be signing off as a Qualified Person ("QP") as defined in National Instrument 43-101 Standards  of  Disclosure  for  Mineral  Projects of the Canadian Securities Administrators ("NI 43-101") for their specific responsibilities.

The Pinto Valley Mine is a conventional open pit operation, with drilling, blasting, loading and hauling. The mill operation consists of a primary, secondary, tertiary crushing system, six ball mills, and flotation concentration. The mill produces a copper and molybdenum concentrate. Copper cathodes are produced through a SX/EW plant by leaching of run of mine ("ROM") material above 0.10% copper and below 0.18% copper grade.

The mine has been in operation since 1974 with three shutdown periods. Most recently the mine was restarted in December 2012. The mine is operated in imperial units (US) with production statistics converted to metric for reporting purposes.

The March 2014 Mineral Resource was estimated by Kirkham Geosystems Ltd. The updated Mineral Resource statement, based on additional drill hole information not included in the previous Mineral Resource Estimate, increased the Mineral Resource by 75.0 million tonnes from the last Mineral Resource Estimate completed in December 2013. The Mineral Resource Estimate includes the Mineral Reserve.

Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral Resource Estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. These Mineral Resource Estimates include Inferred Mineral Resources that are normally considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves. There is also no certainty that these Inferred Mineral Resources will be converted to Measured and Indicated categories through further drilling, or into Mineral Reserves, once economic considerations are applied.

Mineral  Reserves

The Mineral Reserve evaluation is constrained by the permitted capacity of existing tailings facilities, thereby limiting the mine life to 12.3 years. The Mineral Reserve was developed by tabulating the contained measured and indicated (proven and probable) material inside of the designed pit at the mill cut-off grades.

Low grade ore (0.18-0.20% copper) will be stockpiled from 2014 to 2022 for planned processing in 2025 and 2026. In 2023 to 2025 a breakeven cut-off grade of 0.17% copper is used. Material grading 0.10% to 0.18% copper (leach) will be stockpiled and leached. The leach solution will be sent to the existing SX/EW plant for the production of copper cathode. Waste material below 0.10% copper will be stored separately.

Ore production in the PV2 PFS is constrained, first by the permitted capacity of the tailings dam, and eventually would become further constrained by the surface ownership. There is a significant amount of additional Mineral Resource that could potentially be mined if the constraints were removed.

The PFS has identified the need for additional mining equipment from 2014 to 2017 to meet the increased production requirements, costing approximately $48 million.

Additional auxiliary fleet will also need to be purchased, which is included in the capital estimate.

Processing

Ore feed to the mill is planned to continue at 50,000 metric tonnes per day, or 18.2 million metric tonnes per year for the first two years followed by an increase to 52,000 metric tonnes per day or 18.9 million metric tonnes per year for the remaining life of the mine. Low grade ore that will be stockpiled earlier in the mine life will be processed in 2025 and 2026. Metal recoveries average 88.0% for copper and 42.8% for molybdenum.

The PV2 PFS assumes that the copper concentrate will be sold 10% domestically and 90% internationally. Molybdenum production will average 1.4 million pounds per year in concentrate through the life of the mine. This concentrate will be sold locally. Copper cathode production will average 6.3 million pounds per year through the life of the mine. Cathodes will be sold locally.

Infrastructure 

Pinto Valley Mine has existing infrastructure to support operational needs for the existing and PV2 operations. Minor upgrades to mine maintenance facilities have been identified to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the operation. In the open pit operational area, explosives facilities, power lines, pipelines, and perimeter drainage ditches will need to be relocated during 2014 and 2015.

Permitting

Extension in mine life for PV2 will require amendments to the existing Aquifer Protection Permit ("APP") issued by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality ("ADEQ") to add proposed low grade and waste dumps as discharge facilities. A Plan of Operations is currently under review with the US Forest Service related to a consolidation of permit renewals required for the current operation of Pinto Valley. The scope of PV2 does not require any changes to this application. The impact on the closure plan will also be considered as part of the review, but is not expected to be material.

Technical  Report

The full PV2 PFS NI 43-101 Technical Report will be filed under Capstone's profile on SEDAR at http://www.sedar.com within 45 days of the date of this news release.

Alternative  Performance  Measures

The item marked with (1) "C1 Cash Cost per Pound of Payable Copper Produced" is an Alternative Performance Measure. This performance measure is included because this statistic is a key performance measure that management uses to monitor performance. Management uses this statistic to assess how the Company is performing to plan and to assess the overall effectiveness and efficiency of mining operations. This performance measure does not have a meaning within IFRS and, therefore, amounts presented may not be comparable to similar data presented by other mining companies. This performance measure should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for measures of performance in accordance with IFRS.

Cautionary  Note  to  United  States  Investors

This news release contains disclosure that has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Canadian securities laws, which differ from the requirements of US securities laws. Without limiting the foregoing, this news release may refer to technical reports that use the terms "Indicated" and "Inferred" Resources. US investors are cautioned that, while such terms are recognized and required by Canadian securities laws, the SEC does not recognize them. Under US standards, mineralization may not be classified as a "Reserve" unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the Reserve determination is made. US investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Indicated Resources will ever be converted into Reserves. US investors should also understand that "Inferred Resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined legally or economically. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of "Inferred Resources" will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Therefore, US investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Inferred Resources exist, or that they can be mined legally or economically. Accordingly, information concerning descriptions of mineralization and resources contained in this news release may not be comparable to information made public by US companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the SEC.
