The outcome was that a process similar in principal to the Magnetite methodology would produce a 65% fe material at a rate of 5mtpa, through a process of Crushing, milling, magnetic separation and filtering. This plant has the option of upgrading the circuit to a full scale Magnetite process once the ore body beneath the cap is exposed thus capitalising on a material that would traditionally be pre-striped and stored as Waste. The operating costs have been developed using pipeline logistics options which significantly reduced the FOB cost. Based on Iron Price of US$80.00 tonne and exchange rate of 0.85

16 CASHMERE IRON Stage 4 Magnetite Pipeline Summary Process Plant Capex$1,413.30 M Annualised tonnage10 million pa FOB cost A$ tonne$47.48 Revenue $1,082.35 M p/a Expenditure $474.81 M p/a Earnings (EBITDAR) $607.54 M p/a Magnetite values Represent Transport to port via pipeline The Magnetite Processing consists of three stage crushing to achieve a >6mm particle size which feeds a 2 stage grinding circuit at this point the material is reduced to = 4.5% silica and extremely low contaminant. The final product is held at an optimum 9% moisture content to allow effective material handling process and the loading of a product that attracts a premium price in the market. Magnetite Process Economics Based on Iron Price of US$80.00 tonne plus 15% bonus for High Grade clean Magnetite ore at an exchange rate of 0.85
