Brightstar Gold Pours Successfully Conclude with Cashflow to Significantly Exceed Budget

Brightstar Resources Limited (ASX: BTR) (Brightstar) is pleased to announce that following on from the maiden and second gold pours announced 07/03/20241 and 12/02/20242, all processing of the ore from the Selkirk joint venture has successfully been completed at Genesis Minerals’ Gwalia processing plant.


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Brightstar has successfully finalised its gold pours from ore processing of Selkirk material from the Menzies Gold Project, with a total of 430.7kg of gold doré poured
  • Total preliminary unreconciled ounces produced of 8,049.6oz exceeds the modelled JV budget for Selkirk and highlights the quality of Brightstar’s Menzies Gold Project
  • Positive reconciliations of ore mined, head grade and metallurgical recoveries exceeded Brightstar’s expectations
  • Total joint venture costs are being finalised and are expected to be approximately $12 - $13 million
  • Refining of the gold doré is ongoing at the Perth Mint, after which all metals refined will be sold and the revenue will be generated to the JV on a 50/50 Profit Share
  • The first 28 gold doré bars have been refined and sold at the Perth Mint, with 5,546 ounces sold at A$3,306/oz for $18M revenue generated under the joint venture

Brightstar advises that processing of the remainder of the ore from the Selkirk mining joint venture has successfully completed, with total unreconciled gold production of 8,049.6oz from 43 gold doré bars produced in the campaign.

Final reconciliations of the gold-in-circuit are underway between Brightstar’s independent metallurgists and Genesis Minerals Ltd. With the current AUD gold price trading at approximately A$3,300/oz, the revenue to be generated from the Selkirk mining campaign significantly exceeds the joint ventures model (done at A$2,850/oz) and BTR management expectations due to additional recovered ounces at a higher gold price.

To date, 5,546oz have been sold to the Perth Mint after refining at an average realised sale price of A$3,306/oz.

Final costs for the joint venture are still being finalised and reconciled, and once approved by the joint venture, the net project income will be split 50/50 between Brightstar and our joint venture partner BML Ventures Pty Ltd. Total project costs are expected to be approximately A$12 - $13 million.

Brightstar’s Managing Director, Alex Rovira, commented“We are pleased to announce that gold processing of our Selkirk Mining JV material has safely and successfully concluded by the team at Genesis Minerals Ltd’s Gwalia operation. Their assistance, along with JT Metallurgists acting on behalf of the joint venture, has seen the successful processing of ore from the Menzies Gold project into doré bars poured at record high AUD gold prices.

In parallel with the finalisation of gold-in-circuit calculations, which is expected to occur shortly, we are also finalising the joint venture accounts and making provisions for rehabilitation and waste dump seeding to achieve best practice environmental outcomes.

With the Selkirk Mining JV all but concluded, we continue our focus on building Brightstar into a meaningful gold producer and look forward to updating the market with finalised accounts and announcing the reconciled 50% Profit Share value attributable to Brightstar.”

Description:

Far East Capital analyst Warwick Grigor breaks down a compelling narrative of why Brightstar Resources ‘stands out from the pack.’

While most operators in the Western Australian goldfields wait patiently by filling up their plants with their own ore, and getting it relegated to the back of the queue, Brightstar Resources (ASX:BTR) refused to be part of the waiting game.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains certain forward-looking information and forward-looking statements within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation (collectively, "Forward-looking Statements"). All statements, other than statements of historical fact, constitute Forward-looking Statements. Words such as "will", "intends", "proposed" and "expects" or similar expressions are intended to identify Forward-looking Statements. Forward looking Statements in this press release include statements related to the use of proceeds from the Offering; the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange; the Company's mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates; the timing and amount of future production from the Koné project; expectations with respect AISC of the Koné project; anticipated mine life of the Koné project; and expected recoveries and grades of the Koné project. Forward-looking Statements involve various risks and uncertainties and are based on certain factors and assumptions. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Company's expectations include uncertainties inherent in the preparation of mineral reserve and resource estimates and definitive feasibility studies such as the Mineral Reserve Estimate and the UFS, including but not limited to, assumptions underlying the production estimates not being realized, incorrect cost assumptions, unexpected variations in quantity of mineralized material, grade or recovery rates, unexpected changes to geotechnical or hydrogeological considerations, unexpected failures of plant, equipment or processes, unexpected changes to availability of power or the power rates, failure to maintain permits and licenses, higher than expected interest or tax rates, adverse changes in project parameters, unanticipated delays and costs of consulting and accommodating rights of local communities, environmental risks inherent in the Côte d'Ivoire, title risks, including failure to renew concessions, unanticipated commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations, risks relating to COVID-19, delays in or failure to receive access agreements or amended permits, and other risk factors set forth in the Company's 2023 AIF under the heading "Risk Factors". The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any Forward-looking Statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

This press release includes certain terms or performance measures commonly used in the mining industry that are not defined under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), including cash costs and AISC (or "all-in sustaining costs") per payable ounce of gold sold and per tonne processed and mining, processing and operating costs reported on a unit basis. Non-GAAP measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and, therefore, they may not be comparable to similar measures employed by other companies. The Company discloses "cash costs" and "all-in sustaining costs" and other unit costs because it understands that certain investors use this information to determine the Company's ability to generate earnings and cash flows for use in investing and other activities. The Company believes that conventional measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS, do not fully illustrate the ability of mines to generate cash flows. The measures, as determined under IFRS, are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flows from operating activities. The measures cash costs and all-in sustaining costs and unit costs are considered to be key indicators of a project's ability to generate operating earnings and cash flows. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS and are not necessarily indicative of operating costs, operating profit or cash flows presented under IFRS. Readers should also refer to our management's discussion and analysis, available under our corporate profile at www.sedarplus.ca for a more detailed discussion of how we calculate such measures.

John Feneck, partner and portfolio manager at Feneck Consulting, shared his thoughts on gold, silver, copper and uranium, outlining his outlook for these commodities and stocks he's currently watching.

Starting with gold, he said he thinks it's proven itself as a safe-haven asset, with more "smart money" now getting involved. At the same time, he sees gold-mining companies starting to put on positive performances.

"We're off to the races in gold producers in terms of doing well at the earnings level, and that gets the attention of big money ... (and) that's what's needed to generate more interest in the space," Feneck said.
