First Quantum Minerals Ltd. Provides Update on the Ramp-Up Progress of Its New Copper Smelter in Zambia

First Quantum Minerals Ltd. provided the following update on the ramp-up progress of its new copper smelter in Zambia. Key highlights are: The ramp-up continues to progress well ahead of expectations.

The benefits to Kansanshi are increasing as the ramp-up progresses: Its concentrate inventory has been reduced to 29,600 tonnes of contained copper from 59,900 tonnes at the end of the first quarter of 2015, over 180,000 tonnes of sulphuric acid have been produced by the smelter and used in the mine's oxide and mixed circuits and, the mine's C1 cost of production has been lowered to between $1.36 to $1.25 per pound from an average of $1.77 in the first quarter of 2015. for the 600-person workforce is well advanced. Given the progress to date, commercial production is expected to be declared in the third quarter of 2015 - ahead of the previous expectation of the first quarter 2016.
