Kenadyr Mining Corp.

TSX-V: KEN | www.kenadyr.com 

 Investment Highlights:
  • Kenadyr Mining’s Borubai project encircles Zijin’s Taldybulak Levoberejnyi Mine (“TBL” mine) which is newly built and producing with a cap cost of $296 million, it contains 3.2 M oz. Au in reserves and resources at a grade of 7.2g Au/T.  The mine is designed to produce 125,000 oz. Au/annum.
  • Zijin’s TBL orebody connects to Kenadyr’s high grade “South Zone” – its highest priority target. The Soviet resource within a portion of the South Zone (based on 24 drill holes in the area directly adjacent to the TBL orebody) shows an initial unclassified historic resource estimate of 900,000 oz. Au at a grade of 8.3 G Au/T. This historic resource is open in all directions and to depth.
  • Historic resources may be understated. Poor core recovery during Soviet drilling (averaging 60%) and the use of predominately ICP analysis (versus fire assay) may have understated the resources and grades at the South and other zones – comparison of previous Soviet drilling results at the TBL to recent drilling results show a significant increase in average gold grades.
  • Additional high grade gold targets exist throughout the Borubai license.
