Gold Road management comments

“Gruyere has now produced 476,648 ounces (100% basis) since first pouring gold on 30 June 2019.

“Despite a one-off production interruption in the June Quarter, Gruyere continued to deliver a strong half year profit and EBITDA to Gold Road, and the Board has determined to pay a dividend for the six-months to 30 June 2021 of 0.5 cents per share.

“The outlook for the second half of 2021 is stronger at Gruyere, in line with our 2021 guidance and 3 Year Outlook that sees the operation lifting production to a sustainable 350,000 ounces by 2023 (100% basis).

“The already extensive mine life 1 Revenue, EBITDA, cash flow and NPAT excludes the sale of 1,800 ounces of unsold gold held in bullion and doré at 30 June 2021.

“Gruyere looks set to grow further with our reserve update later this year. Geotechnical work on this Reserve update has shown the potential to steepen fresh rock open pit slopes by up to 4 degrees which should have a favourable impact on mine life.

“During the half year, we also began to unlock the potential for further extensions beneath the open pit resource at Gruyere , with Gold Road reporting a 50% attributable Maiden Underground Inferred Mineral Resource, and the Gruyere Joint Venture commencing a programme of deeper drilling that has returned some promising initial results.

I am also very encouraged by our exploration progress at our 100% owned Yamarna project and expect further headway here in the coming 6 to 12 months as we look for a meaningful discovery.

Gruyere and Gold Road have experienced no material production impacts as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. I wish to thank the Gruyere team, our employees, contractors and suppliers for their diligence and excellent performance through this difficult time.”

Gold Road Managing Director and CEO Duncan Gibbs
