Highlights 


 
--  Record third quarter profit of $21.3 million ($0.09 per share), compared
    to a loss of $24.8 million ($0.10 loss per share) in the same prior year
    period, an increase of $46.1 million. 
--  Third quarter 2012 production totalled 55,107 ounces of gold, also a
    Company record, and a 103 percent increase over the same quarter in
    2011.

    ounce. 
--  During the third quarter 2012, the Company delivered 29,000 ounces of
    production into forward sales contracts, reducing the balance
    outstanding to 93,395 ounces. The balance is expected to decline to
    66,000 ounces at year end and be fully extinguished by August 2013.

    Resources to 2.0 million ounces, an increase of approximately 670,000
    ounces or 43 percent, before production (approximately 500,000 ounces
    net of production). 
--  Measured and Indicated Resources at Gora also increased to 374,000
    ounces, an increase of approximately 160,000 ounces or 74 percent. 
--  Initial Inferred Resources at Masato declared at approximately 700,000
    ounces.

    its hedge book and lowers its payables balance, with $30.6 million in
    cash, cash equivalents, and bullion receivable together with 4,150
    ounces in bullion inventory at September 30, 2012 rising to $39.5
    million, including $31.2 in cash and cash equivalents, at November 1,
    2012. 

 
"During the third quarter we continued to build out our corporate and
site management teams adding depth which I believe will serve us well
as we execute on our growth plans. One of the keys to our success is
the creation of a Technical Services Group in our Corporate Office
lead by Paul Chawrun. I am also very pleased for Richard Young who
has stepped into the CEO role, we have worked together for over 20
years, and I am very much looking forward to continuing to grow this
Company with him over the coming years", said Alan R. Hill, Executive
Chairman.

Operating Highlights 


 
--  Gold production for the third quarter of 2012 was 55,107 ounces, 103
    percent higher than the same prior year period due to higher grade ore
    processed combined with higher mill throughput as a result of the
    completion of the mill expansion. 
    
--  Gold sold for the three months ended September 30, 2012 totalled 62,439
    ounces compared to 27,574 ounces sold in the same prior year period, an
    increase of 126 percent. Ounces sold during the third quarter of 2012
    were higher than produced due to the drawdown of gold in circuit from
    the previous quarter when the mill had reduced ability to pour gold
    during the tie-ins for the mill expansion. As a result, at September 30,
    2012, gold in circuit and gold bullion inventory decreased by 7,337
    ounces to 13,046 ounces. 
    
--  Total cash costs for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were $594
    per ounce sold compared to $928 per ounce in the same prior year period,
    a reduction of 36 percent. Total cash costs and depreciation per ounce
    sold were $810 per ounce for the three months ended September 30, 2012
    compared to $1,168 per ounce in the same prior year period.(2) 
    
--  Total tonnes mined for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were
    more than 10 percent higher compared to the same prior year period due
    to increased fleet capacity and improved productivity in the mining
    operation. 
    
    
--  Ore tonnes milled for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were 12
    percent higher than the same prior year period mainly due to an increase
    in mill capacity as a result of the completion of the mill expansion.
    Throughput for the fourth quarter is expected to increase with
    commissioning now complete and the end of the wet season which will
    allow for better flow rates in the crushing circuit. 
    
    
--  The Company remains on track to produce between 210,000 - 225,000 ounces
    in 2012, an increase of approximately 65 percent over 2011, while total
    cash costs are expected to decline approximately 20 percent to between
    $600 to $650 per ounce, in line with guidance for the year. As a result
    of the delay in completion and commissioning of the mill expansion
    production is expected to be at the lower end of the range of our
    production guidance for the year. Production for October was 22,735
    ounces, during a month in which we transitioned from the wet to dry
    season, keeping us on track to meet our production guidance for the full
    year.

 
"Gross profit increased 298 percent for the third quarter and 130
percent year to date due to the improved operating performance at
Sabodala; resulting in a swing from a loss position a year ago to
profitability," said Richard Young, President and CEO. 
Exploration Highlights 
Exploration at the Sabodala deposit increases Measured and Indicated
Resources to 2.0 million ounces, an increase of approximately 670,000
ounces or 43 percent, before production (approximately 500,000 ounces
net of production) 


 
--  The 2012 drill program is designed to deepen the ultimate pit and, if
    successful, to add upwards of 500,000 to 1 million ounces by mid-2013,
    based on drilling intercepts to date, at grades between 1.5 gpt and 2
    gpt.(3) Recent results in the third quarter of 2012 advanced the
    mineralized extents at Sabodala to the NE, SE, SW and to depth in the
    north, with the key in-pit drilling to extend the high grade intercepts
    of a year ago still to come. 
    
--  Measured Resources at the Sabodala pit total 27.1 million tonnes grading
    1.25 gpt and Indicated Resources total 31.5 million tonnes grading 0.96
    gpt. Inferred Resources total 12.4 million tonnes grading 0.87 gpt. 
    
--  As a result of the mine planning work completed in the first quarter of
    2012, we have focused the majority of the drilling effort this year into
    expanding the Sabodala open pit reserves. During the third quarter of
    2012, Reverse Circulation ("RC") and Diamond Drilling ("DD") on the Mine
    License ("ML") totalled 22,000 metres at a cost of $7.0 million. Year to
    date, a total of $20 million has been spent on just over 85,000 metres
    of drilling. Based on the results to date, the budget for the ML has
    been increased from $20 million to $25 million to continue with the
    resource expansion and conversion program at the Sabodala pit.
    
 
Measured and Indicated Resources at Gora also increased to 374,000 ounces, 
an increase of approximately 160,000 ounces or 74 percent.                 
 
--  The feasibility study is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter
    2012 for submission before year end as part of the Environmental and
    Social Impact Assessment. 
    
--  Optimization work during the third quarter increased Measured and
    Indicated Resources to 373,717 ounces of gold, an increase of
    approximately 160,000 ounces or 74 percent over the previous estimate. 
    
--  Measured Resources at the Gora deposit total 0.487 million tonnes
    grading 5.27 gpt and Indicated Resources total 1.84 million tonnes
    grading 4.93 gpt. Inferred Resources total 0.21 million tonnes grading
    3.38 gpt. The increase in resources reflects the inclusion of all
    outstanding assays and continued refinement of the resource model.

quality and grade is conceptual in nature and there has been
insufficient exploration to define a Mineral Resource. It is
uncertain if further exploration will result in the determination of
a Mineral Resource.

Review of Operating Results 
Mining 
Total tonnes mined for the three and nine months ended September 30,
2012 were more than 10 percent higher compared to the same prior year
periods due to increased fleet capacity and improved productivity in
the mining operation. Drilling and loading availabilities benefited
from the addition of three new blast hole drill rigs and four new
haul trucks and implementation of better maintenance practices.
During the last few weeks of the third quarter 2012, mining
activities were negatively impacted by lower haul truck availability
due to delays in delivery of tires. This issue was remediated
subsequent to the period end with the delivery of tires by the Mine's
existing supplier and the sourcing of additional tires via a new
supplier. This may be an ongoing issue for the Company and the
industry over the next several quarters. Year to date, fewer ore
tonnes have been mined than planned but at better grades (average
grade mined was just under 2 gpt, approximately 30 percent higher
than the reserve model) resulting in an increase in ounces mined
compared to plan. In calculating 2011 year end reserves, Management
lowered the capping level on high grade intersections, resulting in
an underestimat
ion of grade in this area of the ore body. 
During the third quarter, the Company finalized the purchase of five
additional haul trucks and one shovel to accelerate the mining rate
of the Sabodala deposit which we expect will increase the production
rate in 2013 and beyond. Two of the new haul trucks are expected
before year end while the balance of three trucks and the shovel are
expected to be delivered and commissioned in the second quarter of
2013. 
Unit mining costs for the three and nine months ended September 30,
2012 were on plan but higher compared to the prior year periods
mainly due to higher fuel consumption due to longer haul distances
and higher costs for blasting consumables. 
Milling 
Ore tonnes milled for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were
12 percent higher than the same prior year period mainly due to an
increase in the mill capacity as a result of the completion of the
mill expansion. Mill throughput for the third quarter was about 20
percent lower than plan mainly due to the delay in completion and
commissioning of the crushing circuit as part of the mill expansion.
Throughput for the fourth quarter is expected to increase with
commissioning now complete and the end of the wet season which will
allow for better flow rates in the crushing circuit. 
Ore tonnes milled for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were 7
percent lower than the same prior year period main
ly due to harder
ore in 2012 compared to the softer material that was available in
2011 as well as due to the shutdowns relating to tie-ins for the mill
expansion during the second quarter, partially offset by the increase
in the milling capacity during the third quarter. 
Year to date, the average grade processed is higher than plan, mainly
due to better than planned mined grades and lower throughput as a
result of the delay in completion and commissioning of the crushing
circuit (highest grade material processed first).  
Unit processing costs for the three months ended September 30, 2012
were 21 percent higher than the same prior year period primarily due
to higher consumption of Heavy Fuel Oil ("HFO") used for power
generation, higher costs and consumption of grinding media, due to
harder ore processed, and higher costs for reagents, partly offset by
lower HFO prices. 
Unit processing costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2012
were 24 percent higher than the same prior year period primarily due
to lower throughput rates, higher consumption of grinding media, due
to harder ore processed, and higher reagent costs, partly offset by
lower HFO prices. 
General and Administration 
General and administration costs for the three and nine months ended
September 30, 2012 totaled $3.8 million and $10.4 million,
respectively, compared to $3.9 million and $10.3 million in the same
prior year perio

Average Realized Gold Price(4) 
During the third quarter 2012, 62,439 gold ounces were sold at an
average realized price of $1,290 per ounce with 29,000 ounces
delivered into gold hedge contracts at an average price of $831 per
ounce and 33,439 ounces sold at an average spot price of $1,688 per
ounce. During the same prior year period, 27,574 ounces were sold at
an average realized price of $1,174 per ounce with 16,615 ounces
delivered into gold hedge contracts at $846 per ounce and 10,959
ounces sold into the spot market at an average spot price of $1,673
per ounce. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, 136,210
ounces were sold at an average realized price of $1,489 per ounce
with 29,000 ounces delivered into gold hedge contracts at $831 per
ounce and 107,210 ounces sold at an average spot price of $1,667 per
ounce. During the same prior year period, 102,471 ounces were sold at
an average realized price of $1,152 per ounce with 53,615 ounces
delivered into gold hedge contracts at $846 per ounce and 48,856
ounces sold at an average spot price of $1,489 per ounce.

Total Cash Costs(5) 
Total cash costs for the third quarter 2012 were $37.1 million
compared to $25.6 million in the same prior year period. Total cash
costs for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were $594 per
ounce sold compared to $928 per ounce in the same prior year period,
a reduction of 36 percent. Total cash costs for the nine months ended
September 30, 2012 were $85.7 million or $629 per ounce sold compared
to $79.2 million or $773 per ounce sold in the same prior year
period. The decrease in cash costs per ounce sold is due to higher
ounces sold, partially offset by higher mining and processing costs.

Review of Financial Results 
Profit for the Period 
Profit for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 was
$21.3 million and $31.1 million, respectively, compared to losses of
$24.8 million and $32.8 million in the same prior year periods.
Earnings per share for the three and nine months ended September 30,
2012 were $0.09 and $0.13, compared to losses of $0.10 and $0.13 per
share in the same prior year periods. The increase in profit and
earnings per share was primarily due to an increase in gross profit
from higher revenues, lower regional exploration expenditures and
lower unrealized gold hedge losses. 
Revenue 
Gold revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012
was $105.0 million and $227.6 million, respectively, compared to gold
revenue of $46.7 million and $155.8 million for the same prior year
periods. The increase in gold revenue was driven by both higher gold
sales and higher spot gold prices. 
Revenues exclude the impact of gold hedges, as realized losses on
ounces delivered into gold hedge contracts are classified withi
n
realized and unrealized gains/losses on gold hedge contracts.

    (i)  The Company adopted changes to certain accounting policies         
         effective January 1, 2012 that have been retrospectively applied to
         the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011. See "Interim   
         Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements - Change in Accounting 
         Policies                                                           

 
Mine production costs totaled $36.8 million and $103.0 million for
the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively,
compared to $30.4 million and $85.6 million for the same prior year
periods. Mine production costs increased mainly due to higher tonnes
mined and milled. 
Depreciation and amortization for the three and nine months ended
September 30, 2012 totaled $14.9 million or $216 per ounce sold and
$34.7 million or $210 per ounce sold, respectively, in comparison
with $7.1 million or $241 per ounce sold and $26.4 million or $253
per ounce sold for the same prior year periods. Higher total
depreciation expense is due to an increase in ounces sold compared to
the prior year periods as well as the impact of new mobile equipment
purchased at the end of 2011 and the completion of the mill expansion
in the second quarter of this year. Depreciation and amortization
expense for the fourth quarter 2012 is expected to increase as gold
production and sales increase and will be similar on per ounce basis
to the current quarter. 
Royalties for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012
increased to $3.1 million and $6.8 million, respectively, compared to
$1.3 million and $4.5 million in the same prior year periods due to
more ounces sold at higher spot gold prices. Royalties are calculated
at 3 percent of the average spot price of gold during the periods. 
Exploration and Evaluation Expenditures 
Exploration and evaluation expenditures totaled $2.0 million and
$14.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012
compared to $8.8 million and $20.2 million in the same prior year
periods reflecting regional exploration costs incurred during the
period related to drill programs as well as target identification
work underway. Exploration and evaluation expenditures for 2012 are
expected to total approximately $15 million, approximately $5 million
less than was budgeted as Management focuses its efforts on the
conversion of resources to reserves on the Mine License. 
Gains/Losses on Gold Hedge Contracts 
The loss on gold hedge contracts totaled $19.0 million for the third
quarter of 2012 compared to a loss of $25.8 million for the third
quarter of 2011. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and
2011 the loss on gold hedge contracts totaled $24.3 million and $44.7
million, respectively. The decrease in losses for the three months
and nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to the same prior
year periods is mainly due to deliveries into the gold hedge book
reducing the outstanding hedge position to 93,395 ounces of gold as
at September 30, 2012. The total mark-to-market loss on the remaining
93,395 ounces of gold under gold hedge contracts recorded as a
financial derivative liability decreased to $90.6 million at
September 30, 2012 as the average forward price of the remaining
contracts at $815 per ounce is marked to the quarter end spot price
of $1,782 per ounce. 
Outlook 
The Company remains on track to produce between 210,000 - 225,000
ounces in 2012, an increase of approximately 65 percent over 2011,
while total cash costs for the year are expected to decline
approximately 20 percent to between $600 to $650 per ounce, in line
with guidance for the year. As a result of the delay in completion
and commissioning of the mill expansion, production is expected to be
at the lower end of the range of our production guidance for the
year. Production for October was 22,735 ounces, during a month in
which we transitioned from the wet to dry season, keeping us on track
to meet our production guidance for the full year. 
The gold forward sales contracts declined during the third quarter
2012 by 29,000 ounces to 93,395 ounces as at September 30, 2012.
Forward sales contracts are expected to decline to 66,000 ounces at
December 31, 2012 and are scheduled to be fully extinguished by
August 2013. 
In total, between capitalized mine site exploration and regional
exploration expenditures, the Company expects to spend approximately
$40 million in calendar 2012, in line with guidance for the year,
however more is expec
ted to be spent on conversion of resources to
reserves on the Mine License and less on the systematic Regional Land
Package exploration program. 
Capital expenditures, excluding capitalized exploration costs, for
2012 are expected to total $50 million, an increase of $10 million
from our previous guidance in our second quarter 2012 report to
shareholders and a $20 million increase over our original guidance
for the year. During the third quarter of 2012 the Company finalized
a contract to purchase additional mining equipment to increase the
mining rate in the Sabodala pit in the amount of $13.4 million, of
which approximately $9 million is expected to be spent this year. The
equipment is intended to be financed by a new equipment lease
facility with Macquarie Bank Limited ("Macquarie") which is expected
to be finalized before year end. The new facility will provide $50
million of equipment financing and will be used to refinance the
existing Societe Generale lease facility. 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES 
As at September 30, 2012 the Company had cash and cash equivalents of
$14.8 million, bullion receivable of $15.8 million and 4,150 ounces
in gold bullion inventory (as at November 1, 2012: the Company had
$31.2 million in cash and cash equivalents and approximately $8
million in bullion receivable). Cash balances decreased from the June
quarter end primarily due to a reduction in the accounts payable
balance and an increase in accounts receivable due to the timing of
gold shipments. Management believes that cash and cash equivalents at
September 30, 2012, together with expected future cash flows from
operations will improve the Company's liquidity, and is expected to
be sufficient to support the Company's minimum operating requirements
without the need for additional equity financing. The gold forward
sales contracts declined during the third quarter 2012 by 29,000
ounces to 93,395 ounces as at September 30, 2012. Forward sales
contracts are expected to decline to 66,000 ounces at December 31,
2012 and are scheduled to be fully extinguished by August 2013. 
About half of the remaining 2012 capital expenditures, excluding
capitalized exploration costs, of $16 million are expected to be
financed by a new equipment lease facility with Macquarie which is
expected to be finalized before year end. The new facility will
provide $50 million of equipment financing and will be used to
refinance the existing Societe Generale lease facility. 
In addition, the Company continues to review the merits of various
debt facilities to provide additional flexibility to execute its
growth strategy. Such incurrence of debt may be in the form of one or
more borrowings of bank or other similar loans. There can, however,
be no assurance that the Company will find the terms on such debt
reasonable and therefore may not put a new facility in place. 
PLANT EXPANSION 
The new mill and downstream processing plant were commissioned in the
second quarter. The secondary crusher and new stockpile/reclaim
facilities were completed at the end of the second quarter and
commissioned in the third quarter this year. Some redesign of chutes
and screens is required before next years' rainy season to improve
ore flow rates in the crushing circuit during rainy season. 
MINE LICENSE EXPLORATION ("ML") 
The primary objective of the 2012 drill program on the Sabodala Mine
License is to expand the Sabodala Mine open pit reserves. Pit
optimization work completed earlier this year defined a larger pit
shell that serves as a guide to our current drill program. 
The 2012 drill program is designed to deepen the ultimate pit and, if
successful, to add upwards of 500,000 to 1 million ounces by
mid-2013, based on drilling intercepts to date, at grades between 1.5
gpt and 2 gpt.(6) Recent results in the third quarter of 2012
advanced the mineralized extents at Sabodala to the NE, SE, SW and to
depth in the north, with the key in pit drilling to extend the high
grade intercepts of a year ago still to come. 
As at September 1, 2012, Measured and Indicated Resources at the
Sabodala pit have increased by approximately 0.7 million ounces to
2.0 million ounces, a 43 percent increase over Measured and Indicated
Resources reported as at December 31, 2011, before production
(approximately 500,000 ounces net of production). Measured Resources
at the Sabodala pit total 27.1 million tonnes grading 1.25 gpt and
Indicated Resources total 31.5 million tonnes grading 0.96 gpt.
Inferred Resources total 12.4 million tonnes grading 0.87 gpt. 
As a result of the mine planning work completed in the first quarter
of 2012, we have focused the majority of the drilling effort this
year into expanding the Sabodala open pit reserves. During the third
quarter of 2012, Reverse Circulation ("RC") and Diamond drilling
("DD") on the ML totaled 22,000 meters at cost of $7.0 million. Year
to date, a total of $20 million has been spent on just over 85,000
meters of drilling. Based on the results to date, the budget for the
ML has been increased from $20 million to $25 million to continue
with the resource expansion and conversion program at the Sabodala
pit. 
(6) This exploration target is not a Mineral Resource. The potential
quality and grade is conceptual in nature and there has been
insufficient exploration to define a Mineral Resource. It is
uncertain if further exploration will result in the determination of
a Mineral Resource. 
Masato 
Drilling in 2011 delineated mineralization with an approximate strike
length of 500 metres and a down dip extent of 200 metres on the Mine
Lease property. 
The objectives for Masato in 2012 include further definition drilling
by in-filling and extending the mineralized zones identified in 2011.
During the third quarter of 2012, five vein models were generated
based on geologic interpretations and assay results, extending
between 120 metres and 1,100 metres along strike, and between 70
metres and 400 metres down dip. An initial Inferred Resource is
estimated at 19.2 million tonnes averaging 1.15 gpt gold, totaling
approximately 700,000 ounces gold, above a 0.35 gpt Au cut-off. 
REGIONAL EXPLORATION ("RLP") 
There are currently 40 drill targets that have been identified on the
Company's approximately 1,330 km2 RLP, subject to the ultimate
renewal of Sabodala North West permit, all within trucking distance
of the mill. All 40 targets are expected to be drill tested in
2012-2013. A further 20 targets have been evaluated with surface
sampling or trenching. 
Due to the heavy wet season no drilling took place during the third
quarter of 2012. The drill rigs were shut down for servicing or
deployed to the ML program and this allowed the large backlog of gold
assays to be reduced. 
For full drill results from our regional exploration program please
see the Company's website. 
Gora 
The feasibility study is expected to be completed in the fourth
quarter 2012 for submission before year end as part of the
Environmental and Social Impact Assessment. Optimization work during
the third quarter increased Measured and Indicated Resources to
373,717 ounces of gold, an increase of approximately 160,000 ounces
or 74 percent over the previous estimate. Measured Resources at the
Gora deposit total 0.487 million tonnes grading 5.27 gpt and
Indicated Resources total 1.84 million tonnes grading 4.93 gpt.
Inferred Resources total 0.21 million tonnes grading 3.38 gpt. The
increase in resources reflects the inclusion of all outstanding
assays and continued refinement of the resource model. 
Saiensoutou 
During third quarter 2012, results were received for the infill
Rotary Air Blast ("RAB") drilling program completed at Saiensoutou
during the second quarter. This program returned a number of
mineralized intercepts (greater than 0.2 gpt cut-off, Aqua Regia
Assays), which includes:

These gold intersections broadly cluster into three sub-parallel NS
trends, which extend for at least 1.2 km in strike length. 
A program of 6,000 meters of RC drilling is scheduled for later this
year or early next year to allow first pass testing of these gold
bearing trends. 
Toumboumba (Sabodala NW) 
Toumboumba is a shear vein system hosted in the Falombou granite and
has the potential for a small, shallow, oxide deposit, located 10 km
from the Sabodala mill. This prospect consists of 18 north-south to
north-east trending gold anomalous zones identified from RAB drilling
during 2011. 
During the third quarter 2012, this exploration permit reached its
natural expiration, and as of the date hereof has not yet been
renewed by the Senegalese Ministry of Mines. During the third quarter
Sabodala Mining Company, along with its joint venture partner,
applied for an extraordinary extension, pursuant to its rights under
the Senegalese Mining Code, for an additional renewal based on
discoveries made to date (most notably Toumboumba) and in order to
complete drilling on targets within the perimeter to determine
whether an economically feasible deposit exists within its
boundaries. A renewal of a reduced foot print of 90 km2 remains under
consideration by the Ministry of Mines. 
NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASURES 
The Company provides some non-IFRS measures as supplementary
information that management believes may be useful to investors to
explain Teranga's financial results. 
"Average realized price" is a financial measure with no standard
meaning under IFRS. Management uses this measure to better understand
the price realized in each reporting period for gold and silver
sales. Average realized price excludes from revenues unrealized gains
and losses on non-hedge derivative contracts. The average realized
price is intended to provide additional information only and does not
have any standardized definition under IFRS; it should not be
considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of
performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Other companies may
calculate this measure differently. 
"Total cash costs per ounce sold" is a common financial performance
measure in the gold mining industry but has no standard meaning under
IFRS. The Company reports total cash costs on a sales basis. We
believe that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in
accordance with IFRS, certain investors use this information to
evaluate the Company's performance and ability to generate cash flow.
Accordingly, it is intended to provide additional information and
should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures
of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. The measure, along
with sales, is considered to be a key indicator of a Company's
ability to generate operating earnings and cash flow from its mining
operations. 
Total cash costs figures are calculated in accordance with a standard
developed by The Gold Institute, which was a worldwide association of
suppliers of gold and gold products and included leading North
American gold producers. The Gold Institute ceased operations in
2002, but the standard is considered the accepted standard of
reporting cash cost of production in North America. Adoption of the
standard is voluntary and the cost measures presented may not be
comparable to other similarly titled measure of other companies. 
"Total depreciation per ounce sold" is a common financial performance
measure in the gold mining industry but has no standard meaning under
IFRS. It is intended to provide additional information and should not
be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of
performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Total cash costs per
ounce sold and total depreciation per ounce sold are calculated as
follows:

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS 
Certain information included in this management discussion and
analysis, including any information as to the Company's strategy,
projects, exploration programs, joint venture ownership positions,
plans, future financial or operating performance and other statements
that express management's expectations or estimates of future
performance, constitute "forward-looking statements". The words
"believe", "expect", "will", "intend", "anticipate", "project",
"plan", "estimate", "on track" and similar expressions identify
forward looking statements. Such forward- looking statements are
necessarily based upon a number of estimates, assumptions, opinions
and analysis made by management in light of its experience that,
while considered reasonable, may turn out to be incorrect and involve
known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, in each
case that may cause the actual financial results, performance or
achievements of the Company to be materially different from the
Company's estimated future results, performance or achievements
expressed or implied by those forward-looking statements. Such
forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. 
These assumptions, risks, uncertainties and other factors include,
but are not limited to: assumptions regarding general business and
economic conditions; conditions in financial markets and the future
financial performance of the company; the impact of global liquidity
and credit availability on the timing of cash flows and the values of
assets and liabilities based on projected future cash flows; the
supply and demand for, deliveries of, and the level and volatility of
the worldwide price of gold or certain other commodities (such as
silver, fuel and electricity); fluctuations in currency markets,
including changes in U.S. dollar and CFA Franc interest rates; risks
arising from holding derivative instruments; adverse changes in our
credit rating; level of indebtedness and liquidity; ability to
successfully complete announced transactions and integrate acquired
assets; legislative, political or economic developments in the
jurisdictions in which the Company carries on business; operating or
technical difficulties in connection with mining or development
activities; employee relations; availability and costs associated
with mining inputs and labor; the speculative nature of exploration
and development, including the risks of obtaining necessary licenses
and permits and diminishing quantities or grades of reserves; changes
in costs and estimates associated with our projects; the accuracy of
our reserve estimates (including with respect to size, grade and
recoverability) and the geological, operational and price assumptions
on which these are based; contests over title to properties,
particularly title to undeveloped properties; the risks involved in
the exploration, development and mining business, as well as other
risks and uncertainties which are more fully described in the
Company's A.I.F. and in other Company filings with securities and
regulatory authorities which are available at www.sedar.com.
Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on such forward
looking statements. Teranga expressly disclaims any intention or
obligation to update or revise any forward looking statements,
whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise,
except in accordance with applicable securities laws.
