About Sulliden Gold Corporation Ltd.
Sulliden is a mineral exploration and development company focused on advancing its flagship Shahuindo project to production. Currently in its permitting phase, this low cost heap leach gold and silver project is located in a prolific gold-producing district in northern Peru. A September 2012 Feasibility Study (based on $1,415 Gold and $27 Silver) on the foundation phase of the project estimates an initial CAPEX of $131.8 million that will support an annual mining rate of 3.65 million tonnes producing approximately 90,000 of gold equivalent ounces for 10.4 years at cash operating costs of $552/oz. This initial mine scenario features a pre tax IRR of 52.2% and post-tax IRR of 37.8%. The technical study considers only approximately 40% of the gold ounces from the total oxide mineral resource. Additional mineral resource growth is anticipated from a number of highly prospective exploration targets on the property that remain largely unexplored. Sulliden is led by a proven management team with hands-on experience developing and operating mines in Latin America.
Sulliden shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) under the symbol "SUE", on the Bolsa de Valores, Lima (BVL), also under the symbol "SUE", and on the premier tier of the U.S. Over-the-Counter market (OTCQX) under the symbol "SDDDF".
