How do we calculate our costs? 

Site Cost (EXW) = Resource cost (royalties & production taxes) Conversion cost (mining cost beneficiation cost sustaining capital cost  G&A cost).

Business Cost = Site Cost Realization Cost (adjustment to site cost to reflect ex-works value of MOP relative to FOB Vancouver price).

Both costs above are calculated against Actual and Capacity operating rates.

Actual Operating Rate: Uses actual production rates achieved in the cost calculations.

Capacity Operating Rate: Uses capacity production rates in the cost calculations.
