Published statement about Augusta
"ARIZONA'S NEXT COPPER MINE
ROBUST ECONOMICS - Augusta's January 2009 updated bankable feasibility study estimates an NPV of $1.2 billion (5% discount after tax) based on a long-term price of $1.85 per pound copper, with a 17.8% internal rate of return and five-year payback period.
STRATEGICALLY POSITIONED - Arizona is home to the nation's largest copper producers and offers stable mining laws and a clear regulatory regime. Rosemont is accessible via highway from east to west, and lies less than 15 kilometres from a major transmission line. Rail lines connecting to major ocean ports are also nearby.
STRONG MARKET DEMAND - The current bull market for copper is being driven by expected strong demand growth out of China, India, Brazil and Russia, and a struggling supply response. The growth in demand is a function of the improved economic outlook for these countries as their economies become more developed and industrialized, and is expected to grow at a rate of 4% reaching over 19 million tonnes annually in 2011."
