INTERIM: NTL: Half Year Report

13 Dec 2017 12:09NZX
September 2017
Dear Shareholders The Directors of New Talisman Gold Mines Ltd are pleased to
provide the following report on progress your company has made in the period
to 30 September 2017 and its financial position at the end of the period.  We
are drawing to the end of what has been one of the busiest years in NTL''s
history and a year in which the Company has been reshaped on many levels.
Among the many accomplishments of the past year there are three that really
stand out: o Commencement of operations at the Talisman Mine - on the 6th of
June 2017 the Company mobilised to site and in six short months has executed
a significant body of work. The site is now fully established, appropriate
services are in place, we have rehabilitated approximately 600m of the
underground tunnel network and extraction of ore from underground has begun.
We are very pleased to note that this was all accomplished within budget and
that only one minor safety incident was reported. Progress on the underground
works is discussed in more detail further in this announcement. o Modelling
and resource estimation of the Talisman Deeps - Upgrading of a significant
portion of the mineral resource estimate to be compliant with JORC 2012
reporting standards. Three modules covering the Dubbo, Woodstock and the
Talisman/Bonanza zones, were released to the market between 12 July and 05
September, 2017. The net results of which were to more than double the mines
estimate of Mineral Resources from 229,000 Oz AuEq to 469,000 Oz AuEq at an
average grade of 15.1g/t AuEq. This total includes some 312,000 Oz AuEq at an
average grade of 21.98g/t  in the Dubbo Zone of the mine. This has set the
stage for building a highly profitable mine as your Company sets about
developing one of the highest-grade underground deposits in New Zealand and
beyond. o The acquisition of 100% of the Rahu gold project from Newcrest New
Zealand Ltd. NTL has long held the belief that the Rahu Project, located
immediately along the strike of the Maria vein which has been extensively
mined at Karangahake and historically produced gold at grade of 27.1g/t AuEq,
may host a significant epithermal gold system. An aggressive drilling
campaign is planned to test this theory and planning is at an advanced stage.
Based to the above significant achievements, investors showed their
confidence in the Company resulting in an increase in the share price from
0.5c to 1.6c after peaking at nearly 3.0c. This is a 220% increase based on
the current share price after the raising of a further approximately 2M NZD
from the SPP.  Corporate During the period under review the company completed
a successful SPP raising just under $2M at a premium to the prevailing share
price traded during the issue period. This demonstrates the significant
support for the project by current shareholders who have been rewarded with
an attached 1 for 5 option. This has a generous five-year term which has
recently traded at 0.7c providing shareholders with long term incentives. A
portion of the funds raised will be applied to the Rahu Project.
Talisman Mine (100% New Talisman Gold Mines Limited) Following detailed
operational planning of the project, and securing financial resources through
the capital raising in mid-2016, the Company established itself at the mine
site in June 2017. The initial part of the project was focussed on
establishing the engineering infrastructure to support underground works and
refurbishing the underground tunnel network between the No8 Level Portal and
the Mystery workings. The refurbishment is now nearing completion while
prospecting is ramping up and extraction of ore from the underground workings
commenced in December 2017. Mine Refurbishment Refurbishment of the
underground workings continues with excellent progress being made by the
underground team. Remedial works have now progressed more than 600m into the
mine at the location of the second bypass which is the final step to make the
No 8 level drive fully trafficable all the way to the Mystery Workings. The
team have faced many geotechnical challenges along the way and have completed
the works to date without any serious incidents. With the focus of the
project now shifting from rehabilitation to prospecting and extraction, two
locations have been identified through which access to No''s 9 and 10 level
may be achieved. A detailed geotechnical assessment of these areas is
underway. Access to these levels will allow the team to undertake sampling
activities in the highly prospective areas of the high-grade Dubbo Zone
directly below the area delineated by the 2004 exploration programme. The
intersection of the Maria vein here in 1989 borehole BM37
assayed at 656g/t gold over 1.8m which included 1154g/t over 1.0m. This with
channel sampling and drilling by NTL confirmed the presence of a high-grade
shoot that has been further supported by modelling work of historic grade
data in the recent mineral resource upgrade. NTL announced on 05 December
2017 that extraction and stockpiling of ore has commenced at the Talisman
mine site. The ore is currently being stockpiled while treatment options are
being reviewed. Prospecting Prospecting activities continue in full swing at
the Talisman Mine with several sources of broken ore having been identified.
Grab samples taken of an ore stockpile on 7 Level have yielded assay results
of between 5.8g/t and 8.18g/t gold and between 16g/t and 70g/t silver. It is
thought that the pile may contain between 90 and 140 tonnes which is readily
available at a very low cost. Grab samples taken from broken ore flowing from
an historic stope adjacent to the No 8 Level Second Bypass have assayed at
between 4.53 and 7.68 g/t gold and 38 and 45 g/t silver. Transport of this
material to a stockpile close to the portal is now underway in preparation
for transport to an off-site stockpile location. Prospecting activities are
also underway at Taukani Hill where previous sampling of the quartz vein
outcrop yielded gold assay results ranging between 0.06g/t and 345g/t. The
Company wishes to increase its knowledge of this highly prospective area
along with other targets in the mining permit and develop a more detailed
exploration programme for inclusion into the broader mine development

Mineral Resource Estimate In late 2016 the Company undertook a programme to
upgrade the Mineral Resource estimate to be compliant with JORC 2012
reporting standards. This exercise was prompted by the acquisition of a large
database of historic geological and geochemical information relating the
deeper extents of the Maria Vein. Information on this estimate was released
to the market in three modules covering the Dubbo, Woodstock and Talisman
Bonanza zones of the Maria vein. The net result of this exercise was to
revise the estimate of mineral resources available to the Talisman Project
from 917,000 tonnes at 6.9g/t Au for 204,000 Oz Au to 950,000 tonnes at
15.1g/t AuEq for 469,000 Oz AuEq. Tabulations of the Mineral Resource
estimate for the Dubbo, Woodstock and Bonanza blocks, reported in Compliance
with the 2012 JORC Code is set out in Table 1. The Table also contains the
Mineral Resource Estimate for the Crown and Mystery blocks, reported in
compliance with the 2004
JORC Code, and a consolidated table for the project area. Full details of the
methodology can be found in the individual company releases of 12 July 2017,
25 July 2017 and 05 September 2017. Small differences in tonnage, grade and
ounces are due to rounding.

Gold equivalents have been used as the historic data is expressed in bullion
values. These have been converted to gold equivalents based on the gold price
during the main historic mining period to 1919 where gold price was a
constant ?4.25 or USD20.47.  All more recent exploration data has been
converted to gold equivalents at the same metal prices for consistency of
resource estimation and reporting. This cements the Talisman deposit firmly
amongst the ranks of the highest-grade gold deposits in New Zealand as can be
seen from the following graph. Beyond the Mineral Resource Estimate set out
above, the exercise also identified some 387,000m2  within the vein
wireframe, measured on the plane of the resource model, that can be
classified as an
exploration target. The mineralised zone is expected to range between 1.2 and
1.8 metres in thickness with a grade range of between 7.4 and 12.9 g/t AuEq
for between 277,000 Oz AuEq and 726,000 Oz AuEq. This target constitutes an
Exploration Target as defined in the 2012 JORC Code. The potential quantity
and grade is conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration
to estimate a Mineral Resource. It is uncertain if further exploration will
result in the estimation of a Mineral Resource. Pre-feasabilility Study In
2013 the company completed a Pre-Feasibility Study on development of the
Talisman Mine. This study proposed a mine plan, focussed on the high
confidence areas adjacent to No 8 level, to produce some 32,000 ounces of
gold from 106,000 tonnes of ore over a five-year period with an average Run
of Mine grade of 9.9g/t Au. At a then gold price of USD 1,700/Oz and a USD:
NZD exchange rate of 1:0.8 the project yielded an indicative NPV10% of NZD
16.5 million at an on mine cash cost of below NZD700/Oz. The Company is in
the process of revisiting this study as we believe that several factors have
changed that will materially affect the project metrics positively. Chief
among these factors is the revised mineral resource estimate discussed in the
preceding section. This indicates that input grades to the mining plan are
likely to be higher than previously estimated. This is expected to have a
positive effect on production costs as more gold will be produced for the
same effort. Costs are based on tonnage not gold content i.e. one tonne of
low grade ore attracts the same cost profile as a tonne of high grade ore,
but the revenue profile varies along with the contained metal.
Scoping Study Good progress has been made on the Talisman Deeps scoping
study. This study aims to set out a blue print for the development of the
much larger Talisman Deeps operation based on the significantly expanded
469,000 AuEq Oz Mineral resource, as discussed earlier in this report. By its
nature a PFS is a technical study as defined in the JORC Code and can be used
for the purposes of defining an Ore Reserve. Because of this a PFS is
confined to examining only the higher confidence Measured and Indicated
Resources and cannot take account of the extensive information available
pertaining to the deeper extents of the mine where the Mineral Resources are
classified in the Inferred Resource category.  While indicative of the short
to medium term potential of the project this is not reflective of the
considerable value increase posed by the depth extensions of the vein system.
Mine design and production scheduling covering the much
larger, 469,000 Oz AuEq mineral resource, is likely to point towards a
significantly larger, longer life operation than has previously been
considered. It is equally likely that, considering the increased grade of the
recently upgraded mineral resource (6.6g/t AuEq vs 15.1 g/t AuEq), that
economic prospects for the project will increase significantly. A Scoping
Study, as referred to above, is based on low-level technical and economic
assessments, and is insufficient to support estimation of Ore Reserves or to
provide assurance of an economic development case at this stage, or to
provide certainty that the conclusions of the Scoping Study will be realised.
The study will also identify opportunities for the exploration activities to
be undertaken to gain the information required to increase confidence in
portions of the Exploration Target highlighted during the recent mineral
resource upgrade. Current information indicates that in the Talisman/ Bonanza
Zone this Exploration Target covers an

area of some 154,000m2 on the plane of the Maria vein wireframe and is likely
to yield a vein width of between 1.6m and 2.4m with mean AuEq grade ranging
between 17.10g/t and 21.6g/t. This target constitutes an Exploration Target
as defined in the 2012 JORC Code. The potential quantity and grade is
conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to estimate
a Mineral Resource. It is uncertain if further exploration will result in the
estimation of a Mineral Resource. Gold price Since reaching its low point of
NZD1,450/Oz in mid-2014 the gold price has recovered appreciably and has
recently tested highs of NZD1,900/Oz last seen in 2013. Over the last quarter
the price has been consistently over NZD1,750/Oz and at the time of writing
is NZD 1,845/Oz. It is expected that this price will have a material effect
on investor confidence in the sector and your company is poised to take
advantage of the situation. Concentrator Plant Representative samples of ore
from both the Mystery and Dubbo veins have been despatched for metallurgical
test-work in South Africa. This test-work will inform the final design of the
plant to ensure that metal recovery is fit for purpose before deciding on
proceeding with a pilot plant. The current proposal includes a crushing and
grinding circuit followed by a gravity concentrator which may be supplemented
by a froth flotation
cell. A closed loop water system is proposed ensuring that no contamination
of natural water ways will take place. All metals contained in the feed stock
will be recovered to the concentrate while reject material will be completely
inert and suitable for placement as backfill. The plant being tested provides
the opportunity to produce a high-grade concentrate while still meeting the
requirements of traffic movement flows from the mine specified in the
existing resource consent.  Upon completion of this metallurgical programme
NTL will have a greater understanding of precious metal recoveries achievable
on low, medium and high-grade feedstock from the mine. NTL have been
approached by several parties regarding the potential for purchase of high
grade concentrate.  Tenure The Talisman Mine is held under a mining permit,
MMP51326, which was granted in 2009 for a period of 25 years, we are
compliant with the conditions of that permit. The operation is an existing
mine on conservation land and the Company holds all the necessary permits and
consents to execute the work programme. Low sovereign risk is one of the
factors that makes New Zealand an attractive destination for foreign
investors. It is considered unlikely that the New Zealand government would
take any drastic steps to upset the status quo.
Rahu Project  (wholly owned subsidiary 100% Rahu Resources Pty Ltd) NTL has a
long association with the Rahu project, completing during its tenure,
comprehensive exploration and evaluation work that identified what the
Company has interpreted as a 1.5 km plus long northern extension to the
mineralisation hosting the gold deposits at Talisman. In 2016 NTL entered
into a joint venture with Newcrest New Zealand Exploration Pty Ltd, a
subsidiary of Newcrest Mining Limited, to further explore and develop the
project. Initially, Newcrest held 80% of the project with the remaining 20%
held by NTL. On 22 September 2017, NTL entered into a sale and purchase
agreement with Newcrest which resulted in the successful acquisition of
Newcrest''s 80% share. During the time of their involvement with the project
the Newcrest team carried out a significant programme of work on the permit,
this included: o Extensive field investigations. o Spectral analysis of drill
core to identify hydrothermal clay alteration patterns that indicate
proximity to gold mineralisation. o Relogged drill core and reinterpreted the
rock type, structure and geochemistry; o Updated the geological model and
determined drill targets.
All data gathered during the period was transferred to NTL who have continued
with further analysis. Based on the Newcrest''s and NTL''s interpretive work,
the area selected for the first drill hole has distinctive clay hydrothermal
alteration patterns plus the mineral adularia, indicative of proximity to
gold mineralisation in Waihi Gold District epithermal vein systems. NTL has
previously delineated a small resource at Rahu, however the main target for a
high-grade extension of Talisman lies at depth. Newcrest were supportive of
NTL''s belief that geological evidence points towards to the area being the
upper extent of what could be a significant epithermal gold deposit. Your
company is completing its geological work to validate the deep target and
finalising its drill hole planning and administrative work for drilling in
the first quarter of the new year.

targeted with the planned first deep drill hole.
Valuation The current book value represents only the capitalised expenditure
and does not consider the resource and grade uplift, project development
status or changes to the ownership structure of the Rahu Project. The company
intends to complete a valuation encompassing the entire resource model by the
end of the financial year upon completion of all upgrades to 2012. This will
also include the adjusted pre-feasibility study. Tenement Holdings Project

NEW TALISMAN GOLD MINES LIMITED Notes to the interim financial statements 1.
