Calidus Meets Half-Year Production and Cost Guidance for the June Quarter


FY24 guidance is 65,000 – 75,000oz at an AISC of A$1,900 – A$2,100/oz



• Zero Lost Time Injuries and Zero Recordable Injuries in the quarter
• Warrawoona Gold Project (WGP) met guidance for the half year with 31,364oz
produced at an AISC of $2,172/oz
• Record quarterly gold production for the June 2023 quarter; 7% increase in
quarterly gold production to 16,177oz at an AISC of $2,245/oz; 15% increase in mill
throughput to 675,170t
• Gold sales for the quarter of 15,487oz for revenue of $40.1M at an average realised
price of $2,590/oz
• Operating cashflow of $10.2M offset by a realised loss of $5.7M on hedge contracts



• At the end of the June Quarter, Calidus held cash and cash equivalents of $26.0M
including $21.6M of cash and $4.4M of bullion after $6.0M debt repayment and
$1.4M spent on development and growth activities
• Project Loan Facility reduced to $81.0M at quarter end; Hedge reduced by
9,250ozs to 106,250ozs
• Calidus raised $24.8M (before costs) via a $23.0M Placement and $1.8M Share
Purchase Plan plus the conversion of $10.5M of Macmahon’s creditor position to
equity at the same price as the placement



• FY24 guidance is 65,000 – 75,000oz at an AISC of A$1,900 – A$2,100/oz
• Production expected to be weighted to second half due to mill shut in Q1 and
higher-grade ore being accessed in H2.
• AISC forecast to be lower in H2 due to reduced strip ratio and increased production
• Forecast life-of-mine costs for the open pit estimated at an AISC of $1,750 –
$1,850/oz. The lower costs for LOM reflect strip ratios reducing 20% as the pit is
deepened and associated reduction in mining costs.
