According to the DFS completed by Proteus EPCM Engineers, the project has potential cash operating margins of A$98 (US$98.4) per tonne of ore processed for a phase one pit of 1.4Mt of ore.

Capital costs of the project is estimated to be A$66m (US$66.3m) including operating costs of A$79 (US$79.3) of ore mined and processed and annual throughput of 400,000tpa of ore.

The firm will now carry out the next phase of DFS, which will involve re-estimating the ore reserve, including use of the above calculated parameters, and preparation of a new mining plan for the Molyhil operation.
