Clarifying Statement - September Quarterly Report

Brisbane, Oct 28, 2016 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Stanmore Coal Limited (googlechartASX:SMR) (Stanmore, the Company) refers to the announcement released on 27 October 2016 titled "September 2016 Quarterly Report". In response to a number enquiries from shareholders and other stakeholders since the release of the September Quarterly Report to the ASX, the Company provides the below clarifying information.


The Company stated in September Quarterly Report that the run of mine (ROM) strip ratio (bcm waste / ROM t) for the Isaac Plains mine during the quarter was 23.8:1. The Company confirms that the strip ratio for completed mining strips since re-commencement of mining is 14:1 and that this measure is more reflective of the nature of the coal resource. The Company clarifies that the strip ratio of 23.8:1 therefore includes all pre-stripping in advance activities which are typical during the ramp-up phase of an open cut mine.

The September quarter strip ratio is higher than the three year average strip ratio of 13:1 for the Isaac Plains open cut area. This is typical for operational ramp-up where overburden is advanced to allow steady state coal mining to occur. The ROM strip ratio for the 2017 Financial Year is anticipated to trend towards, but remain higher, than the forecast 3 year life of mine strip ratio of circa 13:1.
