Low Footprint Strategy

Low Footprint Development Strategy

  • Geometry and continuity of high-grade mineralisation at West Desert may support a smaller, lower footprint mining operation
  • Opportunity to start mining with low capex, high-grade focused underground development
  • Retains flexibility for staged and responsible expansion
  • American West to launch scoping study immediately after IPO

Low Footprint Direct Shipping Ore (DSO) Potential

DSO Potential and route to global market:

  • Mineralisation intersected to date is highly amenable to conventional ore sorting techniques
  • High hardness, density and colour contrasts between the ore and waste rocks
  • Potential to produce a pure chalcocite / chalcopyrite (24-32% Cu) and sphalerite products (15-30% Zn with Ag credits)
  • Test work on existing samples to commence immediately

Low cost and low footprint pathway to development:

  • Outcropping mineralisation – potential for shallow pits with high grade
  • Storm and Seals areas are well suited to mobile crushing and sorting plants
  • Ideal location - close to coast with minimal haulage infrastructure
  • Option to fast-track low CAPEX and OPEX development
  • Eco-Development Optionality – no hazardous material handling and storage
