About Alacer Gold

Alacer is a leading intermediate gold mining company, with an 80% interest in the world-class Çöpler Gold Mine in Turkey operated by Anagold Madencilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. owned 80% by Alacer and 20% by Lidya Madencilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. ("Lidya Mining"). The Corporation's primary focus is to maximize portfolio value, maximize free cash flow, minimize project risk and, therefore, create maximum value for shareholders.

Alacer is actively pursuing initiatives to enhance value beyond the current mine plan:

  • Çöpler Oxide Production Optimization – expansion of the existing heap leach pad to 58 million tonnes has started and the Corporation continues to evaluate opportunities to optimize and extend oxide production beyond the current reserves.

  • Çöpler Sulfide Project – the Corporation is moving into detailed engineering with procurement of long-lead time items progressively during 2015. The Project will deliver medium-term growth with robust financial returns and adds an additional 22 years of production. The Environmental Impact Assessment was approved in December 2014, and land use permits have progressed through the regulatory process and are awaiting final approval.  Receipt of land use permits is required to begin Project construction.  The Project is on track for commissioning at the end of 2017. The Sulfide Project will bring Çöpler Life-of-Mine gold production to 3.9 million ounces at industry low All-in Sustaining Costs1 averaging $637 per ounce as detailed in the updated Technical Report.

  • Alacer continues to pursue numerous high-potential exploration projects in Turkey in various joint ventures with the Company's Turkish partner Lidya Mining.
