  • 5. RESULTS • Strong year operationally • More material moved and processed at lower unit costs • 2013 • • • Produced 207,204 oz (upper end of guidance of 190,000 - 210,000 oz) Cash costs of $641/oz (better than guidance of $650 - $700/oz) All-in sustaining costs (AISC) of $1,033/oz (lower end of guidance of $1,000 - $1,100/oz) • Q4 • • • Produced 52,368 oz Cash costs of $711/oz AISC of $850/oz • Year end cash balance: $42.3M 5
  • 6. INTEGRATION OF OJVG • P&P Open Pit Reserves: 2.81 Moz at 1.47 g/t, increase of 120% • M&I Open Pit Resources: 6.19 Moz at 1.40 g/t, increase of 123% • Inferred Open Pit Resources: 2.64 Moz at 1.03 g/t, increase of 42% • Extensive review of Golouma, Masato and Kerekounda ore bodies • • • Re-logged, re-assayed key drill intercepts QA/QC checks Detailed interpretations • Increased OJVG open pit reserves by ~90,000 oz (over previous OJVG technical reports) • Increases in Golouma and Kerekounda, decrease at Masato • • Conservative interpretation at Masato Further work required to define high-grade mineralized envelopes possibly including infill drilling 6
  • 7. INCREASED OPERATIONAL FLEXIBILITY • LOM Plan to be released in February, 2014 • NI 43-101 Technical Report to be filed in March, 2014 • Multiple open pits provides flexibility to maximize free cash flow • Optimal sequencing of pits and pit phases, based on: • • • • Ore grade Ore hardness Capital required to access ore Strip ratio • Maximize free cash flow in any gold price environment 7
  • 8. 2014 GUIDANCE • Near term objective: maximize free cash and eliminate debt outstanding • 2014 Forecast • • • • • • Production: Cash costs: AISC: Exploration expense (Regional): Admin & CSR: Capitalized expenditures including: • • • • 220,000 – 240,000 oz $650 – 700/oz $800 – 875/oz $5M $15 – 16M $28 – 33M Sustaining & project development Capitalized deferred stripping Reserve development (Mine License) Payments to Government • Mining focused on Sabodala phase 3, deferral of phase 4 to minimize material movement freeing up mobile equipment for Masato 8
  • 9. CORPORATE STRATEGY • Design of mine plans to maximize free cash flow • • Less material moved, lower reserves, lower production Higher free cash flow • Only gold, only Senegal • With significant increase in mine life, focus on the future: • Short term (2014-2015) • • • • Integrate OJVG and Sabodala operations Increase free cash flow through higher production and lower material movement • In part to retire the balance of the debt facility outstanding Increase reserves through conversion of M&I and Inferred Medium term (2014-2016) • • • • Evaluate heap leach processing option (permit & build if meets hurdle rate) Optimize mill throughput Optimize mine planning and grade Long term (2015 onward) • Exploration discoveries 9
  • 10. EXPLORATION: EARLY DAYS IN NEW GOLD CAMP • 1,055km2 land package covers > 70km of strike length on an offsetting Regional Scale Structure • Systematic exploration has identified > 30 exploration targets to date • Potential for satellite and standalone deposit discoveries • Committed to modest, multi-year exploration program 10
  • 11. CORPORATE STRATEGY VALUE CREATION • Maximize free cash flow generation • • • Produce ~250 koz/year Lowest (best) quartile AISC costs High conversion of EBITDA into cash flow (low sustaining capex) DISCIPLINED ALLOCATION OF CAPITAL • Only Senegal – only gold • Only commit capital to projects which have • • • Leverage existing processing infrastructure • • • Only gold production facility in Senegal Aim to grow reserves at low cost and without shareholder dilution Potential for future expansion of process capacity • Optimize mill • Heap leach potential • Mill expansion (if merited) IRR > hurdle rate Quick payback RETURN OF CAPITAL • Priority is to strengthen balance sheet • • Extinguish debt facility Build up sufficient cash to execute on business plan • Once balance sheet is strengthened, Board will consider how to return excess cash flows to shareholders via dividend, special dividend or share buyback (depending on share price) 11
  • 12. INVESTMENT SUMMARY • Transformative acquisition of OJVG now complete – more than doubling open pit reserves and resources • New mine plan forecasts average production of about 250 koz per year at lower (best) quartile of AISC • Corporate strategy focused on maximizing free cash flow • Potential to add profitable ounces to production profile • Senegal is a politically stable jurisdiction with a competitive mining fiscal regime • Trading at a discount to peer group valuations 12

  • 14. COMPETENT PERSON STATEMENTS The technical information contained in this document relating to the mineral reserve estimates for Sabodala, the stockpiles, Masato, Golouma and Kerekounda is based on information compiled by Mr. Chawrun. Mr. Chawrun is member of the Professional Engineers Ontario, which is currently included as a "Recognized Overseas Professional Organization" in a list promulgated by the ASX from time to time. Mr. Chawrun is a full-time employee of Teranga and is a "qualified person" as defined in NI 43-101 and a "competent person" as defined in the 2012 Edition of the "Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves". Mr. Chawrun has sufficient experience relevant to the style of mineralization and type of deposit under consideration and to the activity he is undertaking to qualify as a Competent Person as defined in the 2012 Edition of the "Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves". Mr. Chawrun has consented to the inclusion in this document of the matters based on his compiled information in the form and context in which it appears. The technical information contained in this document relating to a mineral resource estimates is based on information compiled by Ms. Nakai-Lajoie. Ms. Patti Nakai-Lajoie, P. Geo., is a Member of the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario, which is currently included as a "Recognized Overseas Professional Organization" in a list promulgated by the ASX from time to time. Ms. Nakai-Lajoie is a full time employee of Teranga and is not "independent" within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101. Ms. Nakai-Lajoie has sufficient experience which is relevant to the style of mineralization and type of deposit under consideration and to the activity which she is undertaking to qualify as a Competent Person as defined in the 2012 Edition of the "Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves". Ms. Nakai-Lajoie is a "Qualified Person" under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Ms. Nakai-Lajoie has consented to the inclusion in this document of the matters based on her compiled information in the form and context in which it appears in this document. The technical information contained in this document relating to the mineral reserve estimates for Gora and Niakafiri is based on, and fairly represents, information and supporting documentation prepared by Julia Martin, P.Eng. who is a member of the Professional Engineers of Ontario and a Member of AusIMM (CP). Ms. Martin is a full time employee with AMC Mining Consultants (Canada) Ltd., is independent of Teranga, is a “qualified person” as defined in NI 43-101 and a “competent person” as defined in the 2012 Edition of the “Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves”. Ms. Martin has sufficient experience relevant to the style of mineralization and type of deposit under consideration and to the activity she is undertaking to qualify as a Competent Person as defined in the 2012 Edition of the “Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves”. Ms. Martin is a “Qualified Person” under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Ms. Martin has reviewed and accepts responsibility for the Mineral Reserve estimates for Gora and Niakafiri disclosed in this document and has consented to the inclusion of the matters based on her information in the form and context in which it appears in this document. Teranga's disclosure of mineral reserve and mineral resource information is governed by NI 43-101 under the guidelines set out in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (the "CIM") Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, adopted by the CIM Council, as may be amended from time to time by the CIM ("CIM Standards"). CIM definitions of the terms "mineral reserve", "proven mineral reserve", "probable mineral reserve", "mineral resource", "measured mineral resource", "indicated mineral resource" and "inferred mineral resource", are substantially similar to the JORC Code corresponding definitions of the terms "ore reserve", "proved ore reserve", "probable ore reserve", "mineral resource", "measured mineral resource", "indicated mineral resource" and "inferred mineral resource", respectively. Estimates of mineral resources and mineral reserves prepared in accordance with the JORC Code would not be materially different if prepared in accordance with the CIM definitions applicable under NI 43-101. There can be no assurance that those portions of mineral resources that are not mineral reserves will ultimately be converted into mineral reserves. 14
