On February 17, 2016, we announced an updated cost estimate and project update for the Brucejack Project.
Based on the achievement of the 60% engineering milestone, a capital cost estimate was carried out in late 2015 to update the June 2014 Feasibility Study cost estimate for the Brucejack Project. The estimated total project capital cost to complete design, construction, installation and commissioning, including contingencies and working capital, is US$696.8 million. Working capital for the three-month period of post-plant commissioning and initial gold production covers the cost of operations, but does not take into account any revenue generated during this period. The working capital estimate also covers the costs for prepayments related to electrical power and permitting, including US$9 million in government fees and bonds.
