  • 9. Operations – Kansanshi Copper/Gold Mine• Located near Solwezi, Zambia• Copper-gold operation• Production began in 2005• 2010 production — 231,124 tonnes of copper — 109,629 ounces of gold 9
  • 10. Operations – Kansanshi Copper/Gold Mine Expanding Production Capacity: • Phase 1 underway – expansion to oxide circuit • A major program of resource development and exploration drilling underway • Results will provide design details for next expansion phases • Current aim to reach annual production of ~400,000 tonnes in 2015 10
  • 11. Operations – Guelb Moghrein Copper/Gold Mine • Located near Akjoujt, Mauritania • Copper-gold operation • Production began in 2006 • 2010 production — 36,969 tonnes of copper — 81,766 ounces of gold 11
  • 12. Operations – Guelb Moghrein Copper/Gold Mine • Optimizing recent expansion • Increased throughput and enhanced recoveries will allow annual copper production to rise to ~50,000 tonnes • Ongoing exploration at and nearby focused on identifying additional feedstock to extend the life of the operation 12
  • 13. A ROBUST PROJECT PIPELINEGrowth 13
  • 14. Growth and Diversification • Copper production objective: 1,200 Copper Production Profile 000’s tonnes – Triple production in 2015 to ~1.1M tonnes 900 • Nickel production objective: 600 300 – Beginning in 2011 and increasing to 55,000 tonnes in 2014 - 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 12F13F14F15F • Investment in growth projects: Actual Provisional – ~ $2 billion projected over the 2011 – 75 Nickel Production Profile 000’s tonnes 2015 timeframe – excluding assumptions 60 on the Haquira deposit and the building of 45 a copper smelter in Zambia 30 15 - 2012F 2013F 2014F 14
  • 15. Projects – Ravensthorpe Nickel Project• Located in Western Australia• Open pit using conventional drill and blast, load and haul system• Processing plant using proven technology• Purchase in February 2010 for US$340 million• Estimated capital for modification of US$190 million 15
  • 16. Projects – Ravensthorpe Nickel Project• On schedule for commissioning in 2nd half 2011• Average annual production of nickel metal: – 39,000 tonnes for the first five years – 28,000 tonnes over the life of mine• C1 cost estimate: – $5.00/lb nickel – $3.00/lb without realization – assumptions: nickel = $6.75/lb; cobalt = $12.00/lb• Expected mine life >30 years 16
  • 17. Projects – Kevitsa Nickel/Copper Project• Located in northern Finland• Open pit mine – estimated measured and indicated resources of 240 million tonnes grading 0.30% nickel; 0.28 nickel sulphide; 0.41% copper; using a nickel cut-off grade of 0.1%• Conventional processing to produce two concentrates: – nickel-cobalt-PGE-concentrate grading ~ 12% nickel – copper-PGE-gold concentrate grading ~ 28% copper• Designed for 5 million tonnes per annum with built-in expansion capabilities 17
  • 18. Projects – Kevitsa Nickel/Copper Project• At initial capacity average annual production – 10,000 tonnes of nickel – 20,000 tonnes of copper• LOM C1 cost estimate of $2.50/lb nickel, net of by product credits• Assumptions: – nickel = $6.75/lb; copper = $2.00/lb; Euro/US = 1.35• Capital cost estimate of $400 million• Estimated mine life >20 years• Ongoing drill program returning further positive results• Production targeted for mid 2012 18
  • 19. Projects – The Trident Project• Located in Northwestern Province – ~150 kilometres from the Kansanshi mine• Acquired in January 2010 for ~$260 million• Trident project comprises: – Sentinel copper deposit – Enterprise target – Intrepid target 19
  • 20. Projects – The Sentinel Deposit• Significant drill program underway with 16 drills onsite• Excellent continuity of mineralization• Mining and processing conditions appear relatively straightforward• Large-scale mining licences granted• Extensive CSR program already underway• Initial design and construction could start in 2011 with commercial production in early 2014 20
  • 21. Projects – The Sentinel Deposit – Drill PatternFebruary 2011 21
  • 22. Projects – The Sentinel Deposit• Internal evaluation assumptions: – Resource in the range of at least 700 million tonnes at a headgrade in the range of 0.65% to 0.80% copper – Annual throughput rate of 40 million tonnes – Annual production of an initial 150,000 tonnes of copper rising up to 300,000 tonnes – Capital cost in the range of $1B, including the necessary infrastructure – recoveries in the range of 90% to 95% – unit cash cost of production approximate to Kansanshi• Initial design and construction could start in 2011 with commercial production in early 2014 22
  • 23. Projects – New Copper Smelter• Compelling economics• Limited smelter capacity in Zambia currently• Facility would be dedicated to production from Kansanshi and Sentinel• Benefits include: – Production of sulphuric acid for use in Kansanshi’s oxide circuit – Existing infrastructure – Available workforce in nearby community – Reduce dependence on 3rd party available capacity 23
  • 24. Projects – Haquira Copper Deposit• Acquired in December 2010• Large scale copper project located in southern Peru – M&I resource of 3.7 million tonnes of copper equivalent and an inferred resource of 2.4 million tonnes of copper equivalent• Current priorities: – Expanding infill and condemnation drill program – Updated reserves and resources estimate and the environmental impact assessment in mid-2012 when detailed project design will commence 24
