Overview of Liquid Iron Project
Large & well tested (to JORC Standard) Iron Sands Mineral Resource inJava, Indonesia, equivalent to 65 Million Tonnes of Iron
Project NPV of $658 million with average net cash flows of $162M perannum and operating cost of $150 per tonne (@$350/t Pig Iron)
Further substantial upside in project life, scale and operating costs
Scoping Study shows high margin, lowest cost quartile
Excellent Local Infrastructure – power, water, rail, port
Proven Technology being applied
Binding Contract of Works signed with ability to mine and process ironsands throughout Indonesia
Experienced Board and Management with proven project developmentskills in the iron ore and steel sectors
... Potential Lowest Quartile Cost Producer
Project Location Plan
Global JORC Resource
605 million tonnes of magnetite bearing sediment grading 10.8% Fe, which equatesto an equivalent contained iron of 65 million tonnes
Of the global resource, there is 273 million tonnes of magnetite rich surface sanddown to 7 metres grading 14.2% Fe, sufficient for over 20 years of mining
Global resource based on 929 holes for a total of 14,468 metres of air core drilling
Location Mineralisation occurs on the surface, allowing for low cost resource estimation and
mining. The deposits are located close to key infrastructure:
Railways 500,000 kva power line Transport infrastructure
TechnologyThe simple and proventechnology proposed is similarto that successfully employedat Bluescope Steel’s Iron Sandsoperation in New Zealand
Ownership Indo Mines 70% PT Jogja Magasa Mining 30%
