K92 Mining owns the Kainantu Gold Mine located in the Eastern Highlands province of Papua New Guinea. The Kainantu Gold Mine is a high-grade, low cost underground mine within a ~860 km2 land package in a region known for Tier 1 deposits. K92 has doubled throughput to 400,000 tonnes/year, which would increase annual production to +120 koz/year. Stage 3 Expansion PEA outlines Tier 1 production, with a run-rate production of +315koz AuEq pa starting in late-2023, average AISC of US$486/oz AuEq and After-Tax NPV5% of US$1.5b at US$1,500/oz Au. Drilling to support potential further expansions is also underway with 11 rigs currently operational with plans to add rigs in 2021.

K92 is recognized as a OTCQX Best 50 company in 2021.

"Papua New Guinea is the land of Tier 1 mining assets, both in terms of size and grade, has some of the best geology on the planet and we strongly believe that we are located in one of the most prospective parts of the country. At K92 we are very fortunate to have two exceptional resources; our workforce of which over +95% is from PNG and our mineral resource. Additionally, the support from all levels of government has been a major factor in all of our achievements to date."

Stage 3 Expansion

"The PEA economics are robust, with run-rate production of ~318,000 oz AuEq per annum; low average all-in sustaining costs net of by-product credits of US$362/oz gold which benefitted from higher copper grades and economies of scale, and; an after-tax NPV5% of US$1.5 billiion at US$1,500/oz. Importantly, the Stage 3 Expansion is a low capital intensity project and within our ability to self-fund from scheduled mine cash flow.

As a result, we are initiating a Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") for Stage 3. Work on the new twin incline is underway. "

Thayer Lindsley award 2021 <br>BEST GLOBAL DISCOVERY

Thayer Lindsley award 2021
BEST GLOBAL DISCOVERY

“We are extremely proud to receive the Thayer Lindsley Award, which we believe recognizes the world-class nature of the Kainantu Gold Mine, the tremendous geologic potential of Papua New Guinea, and the significant value creation from the K92 team. The rapid progress has been truly remarkable, achieving commercial production in late-January 2018, exceeding production guidance in both 2018 and 2019, and commissioning our Stage 2 Process Plant Expansion and completing the Stage 3 Expansion PEA in 3Q 2020. This would not have been possible if it weren’t for the extraordinary commitment of our team and the strong support of all levels of government in Papua New Guinea.”

- CEO and Director, John Lewins
