Assumptions equivalent to copper

The tonnes of copper equivalent were calculated using the following formula on the basis of the presumed recoveries for the assets concerned:



Tons of copper equivalent = (Cu recovered) + ((Au recovered x Au US $ / oz) / (2204 * Cu US $ / lb))


Prominent hill

Tons of copper equivalent = (tonnes mined x Cu% x Cu Rec) + (((tonnes mined x Au g / tx Au Rec) / 31.1) x Au US $ / oz / AUD-US Exchange) / (2204 * Cu US $ / lb / AUD-US Exchange))


Musgrave West

Tons of copper equivalent = (Recovered Cu) + (Recovered Ni x Ni US $ lb / Cu US $ / lb)

  • Assumed prices: USD 2.91 cu / lb; At USD 1,246 / oz; Ni US $ 7.60 / lb, AUD / USD 0.67
  • Assumed recoveries: Prominent Hill Cu 86.3%, Au 73.1%

It is OZ Minerals’ opinion that all of the items included in the calculation of metal equivalents have a reasonable potential to be salvaged and sold.
