The costs would rank Kun-Manie among the 10 lowest cost nickel producers

Amur Minerals Corporation (LON:AMC) said its cost estimates for nickel at its planned Kun-Manie nickel copper sulphide project are below nickel industry averages.

The AIM-listed miner said based on the previously reported mining potential of 73mln ore tonnes at Kun-Manie, around 6mln tonnes per annum over 12 years and 2 months of production, the Life Of Mine (LOM) C1 cost per pound of nickel is projected to range from US$2.61 to US$2.77.

Amur said these projected costs indicate that Kun-Manie would rank among the 10 lowest cost industry wide nickel producers in terms of business costs at existing operations, potentially reaching as low as fourth place.

Robin Young, Amur Minerals chief executive, said: "These newly defined C1 cost projections include all projected operating costs and operational considerations from the mine face to the sale of a final product.

He added: “These costs also take into account mine dilution, metallurgical recoveries at the mine and smelters, truck and rail freight and more. We have also included the Russian Far East reduced tax and royalty incentives which further reduce our total production cost per nickel unit, whether a pound or a tonne.”

In early morning trading Wednesday, Amur Minerals shares were steady at 5.1p.
