KEFI Gold and Copper has obtained a positive assessment of the PFS for Hawiah, the largest discovery to date by KEFI’s 27%-owned Saudi Arabian joint-venture Gold and Minerals Company Limited (GMCO).
Hawiah is a part of a larger mineralized system and the January 2023 Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) contains a total of 258,000t (569Mlbs) of copper, 272,000t (600Mlbs) of zinc, 620,000oz of gold and 9.4Moz of silver. Hawiah already ranks amongst the top three base metal projects in Saudi Arabia and the largest 15% VMS (Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide) systems globally.
