Algemeen advies 19/01/2023 09:01
for the three months ended 31 December 2022
MARTIN HORGAN, CEO, commented: “The fourth quarter performance represented a successful conclusion to the year.
Our operating team delivered on our 2022 guidance for both ounces and costs at Sukari, despite the impact of industrywide inflationary pressures. Even more importantly, we are proud to report a new safety record of over 8 million hours
worked without a lost time injury reflecting our focus on safety across the Company.
It was a busy fourth quarter - we commissioned the 36Mw Sukari solar plant, delivering immediate cost savings and
reductions in carbon emissions; we completed the Sukari underground expansion study confirming the ability to increase
mining rates by 30% from 2025; for the consecutive second year, we materially grew the Sukari reserves; and we signed a
US$150 million sustainability linked revolving credit facility providing greater flexibility to fund growth. Outside of Sukari, the
Doropo pre-feasibility study is on track for H1 2023, with work focused on assessing new potential capital and cost saving
opportunities, and on our earlier stage exploration blocks in Egypt, we have identified drill targets to be tested later this year.
During 2023, we look forward to further increasing gold production from Sukari year on year while continuing to manage
cost pressures, and progressing the multiple identified opportunities across our portfolio.”
2022 guidance delivered
• New Group safety record achieved: the Company recorded no Lost Time Injuries (“LTI”) in the fourth quarter
(“Q4”) and Sukari has achieved a site record of eight million hours LTI free. The lost time injury frequency rate
(“LTIFR”) for the twelve months ended 31 December 2022 (“FY”) was 0.08 per one million hours worked,
representing an 83% improvement from the previous year

FY production of 440,974 oz
• Annual revenue of US$787 million: Q4 revenue of US$188 million, generated from gold sales of 108,441 oz at
an average realised gold price of US$1,735/oz sold; FY revenue of US$787 million, generated from gold sales of
438,638 oz at an average realised gold price of US$1,794/oz sold
