    Kalkaroo Copper Project Peer Comparison

    I have been focussing on separating Havilah from the mining junior pack by articulating why Havilah has the best risk-reward equation.

    For the first peer comparison, I have used Havilah's flagship Kalkaroo project (in South Australia) alongside Sandfire Resources Limited's next flagship T3 Motheo project (in Botswana).

    A comparison of Havilah's 18 June 2019 Kalkaroo copper-gold project PFS (revised for the 2 December 2020 ASX Media Release new LT metal prices) with Sandfire Resources Limited's T3 Motheo copper-silver project DFS/FID (ASX announcement on 1 December 2020).

    The NPV for Kalkaroo is exactly two times the T3 Motheo project. It should be pointed out that Sandfire used a more favourable discount rate and FX rate. It is also highly likely that Sandfire will only end up with 85% of the T3 Motheo project once the Botswana government backs into the project.
