SEMAFO: Corporate and Operational Update

ALL AMOUNTS IN US DOLLARS  

MONTREAL, Dec. 2, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - SEMAFO Inc. (TSX: SMF) (OMX: SMF) provides a corporate and operational update following the November 11 Boungou update.

Benoit Desormeaux, President and CEO of SEMAFO, states: "It has been a very difficult time, but our team has risen to the occasion. Initially we were focused on the safety, security and well being of the victims and their families and those of our employees, contractors and suppliers. It has been almost a month since the unprecedented attack, and we continue to support the victims and their families while working on plans for now and for the future. We will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves."

Boungou Update

The Boungou Mine remains closed. We are evaluating a variety of options to restart operations at Boungou in a safe and secure manner. Although many of the aspects of a restart plan are within our control, there are other aspects for which we need support from the government and from our existing suppliers. Discussions with these parties are ongoing relative to a restart. However, we do not anticipate Boungou restarting this year.

Any restart plan will require the government to increase the security of the public road to Boungou as well as in the region. We are evaluating scenarios to limit the use of the public road, such as transporting our people by air from Fada to Boungou. Construction of the airstrip began before the attack, and we estimate it will take an additional three months to complete once construction activities are restarted. Transportation by helicopter will continue until the airstrip is completed and operational. 

Additional security personnel are on-site ensuring the continued safety of the site and of the small number of personnel remaining. The processing plant is being managed to allow for a smooth restart when possible. As part of the process, some gold in circuit will be recovered for a last shipment in December.  

As of November 6, 2019, the stockpile held approximately 1.1 million tonnes of ore at an estimated average grade of 3.4 grams per tonne. One scenario under evaluation contemplates a phased restart plan. Phase one would involve processing the stockpile only without mining. This would allow for a quicker restart as it requires a smaller number of personnel and would generate positive cash flow. The stockpile would provide approximately ten months of feed for the mill . Phase two would involve restarting the mining. We are currently in discussions with our mining contractor, African Mining Services, in relation to phase two including for a seamless transition should AMS not return to Boungou.

Mana Update

Operations at the Mana Mine continue in-line with guidance, albeit with increased security. Development of Siou underground continues as planned, and full production is expected in March. Our 2020 plan will focus on maximising cash flow.

Corporate Update

We continue to manage cash and working capital conservatively and prudently, including postponing exploration activities. As at September 30, 2019, we had cash of $77.7 million and restricted cash of $15 million that is held in a deposit account for payment of the $75 million credit facility. The credit facility has various standard events of default, and we are in discussions with the lender to address them.
