  • 26. Liquefied Natural Gas Power Plant Feasibility Study Released October 2013 With a view to project optimization, Stornoway has been investigating more cost efficient alternatives for on-site power supply than traditional diesel fuelled gensets. A Hydro-Québec powerline has been ruled out in the short term due to high cap-ex cost. On October 21st Stornoway announced it will proceed with an LNG fuelled gen-set option, made possible by the ability to receive regular cryogenic LNG shipments on the Renard Mine Road. The Renard LNG plant will comprise seven 2.1MW rated gas gen-sets, providing sufficient power generation capacity for the project’s normal operating specification of 9.5MW.26
  • 27. 27Liquefied Natural Gas Power Plant Feasibility Study Released October 2013 An LNG fuelled powerplant for Renard offers many advantages over diesel: • Greatly reduced annual operating costs of $8m to $10m per year, for a small incremental capital cost of $2.6m. • Up to 43% less greenhouse gas emissions. • Long term, stable supply market utilizing existing commercial distribution network within Quebec. • Elimination of on-site propane, as LNG will be used for building and underground mine heating.Diesel will continue to be used for the mobile mining fleet and construction activities Cost Improvements with LNG Unit Power Cost (C$/kWh) 1Jan 2013 Optimization Study with DieselJan 2013 Optimization Study with LNGUnit Operating Cost (C$/tonne) 1,2$0.299 $57.63$0.188 $53.84(-37%) (-7%)Initial Capital Cost (C$m) 1$752.1$754.0(+0.3%)Life of Mine Capital Cost (C$m) 1,3$1,013$1,010(-0.3%)27.55.9(-79%)n/a 3.541.7 n/aAnnual Diesel Consumption (million litres) Annual LNG Consumption (thousand m3/annum) Annual Propane Consumption (thousand m3/annum) NotesKey Assumptions1.January 2013 Optimization Study costs expressed in October 2012 terms.2.Excludes capitalized preproduction costs.Based on the 11 year reserve-based mine life (17.9 mcarats) contained within the January 2013 Optimization Study, with a normal operating load of 9.49MW, C$1=US$1, Oil US$95/barrel3.Includes all initial, sustaining and deferred capital, contingencies and escalation

The exploration upside for the Renard kimberlite pipes has been determined by projecting reasonable kimberlite volumes from the base of the inferred Resource to a depth of 700m below surface. In the case of the Lynx and Hibou dykes, the exploration upside was established on the basis of known drill intersections of kimberlite for which insufficient diamond sampling exists to adequately estimate a diamond resource grade.

Liquefied Natural Gas Power Plant Feasibility Study Released October 2013 With a view to project optimization, Stornoway has been investigating more cost efficient alternatives for on-site power supply than traditional diesel fuelled gensets. A Hydro-Québec powerline has been ruled out in the short term due to high cap-ex cost. On October 21st Stornoway announced it will proceed with an LNG fuelled gen-set option, made possible by the ability to receive regular cryogenic LNG shipments on the Renard Mine Road. The Renard LNG plant will comprise seven 2.1MW rated gas gen-sets, providing sufficient power generation capacity for the project’s normal operating specification of 9.5MW.26

  • 50. 50Future Rough Diamond Supply Almost all rough diamond production forecasts show flat or declining production long term. De Beers see production peaking in 2017, and broad reserve depletion thereafter. Rough production is not expected to reach 2008 levels in carat terms again. No large scale diamond mine has been discovered since the discovery of EKATI and Diavik in the early 1990s. The movement to underground mining in Russia, South Africa and Canada will lower overall industry margins.De Beers Production ForecastRio Tinto Production Forecast Production and Supply Forecast (Rio Tinto) 180Produciton / Supply Mct160 140Alluvial120 100U/G80 60 40 20 03x increase in U/G carats Higher costOpen Cut
