Quarterly Exploration Report
For the three months ended 30 September 2021
Red Chris and Havieron deliver outstanding growth and infill drilling results
At Red Chris, drilling continues to expand the known higher grade mineralisation intersected at East Ridge, with this new discovery adjacent to the East Zone continuing to return high grade intercepts, supporting the potential for resource growth.
At Havieron, growth drilling continues to extend high grade mineralisation outside of the initial Inferred Mineral Resource extent, while infill results validate, and in some places upgrades, the current model interpretation.
Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX: NCM) (TSX: NCM) (PNGX: NCM) Newcrest Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Sandeep Biswas, said, “We are really excited by the latest results from our growth and infill drilling programs at Red Chris and Havieron. At Red Chris, we reported the best high grade intercept from our new East Ridge discovery of 56m @ 3.5g/t gold and 1.8% copper from RC727. At Havieron, the infill drilling program continues to demonstrate high grade within the deposit, with the latest intercept returning a significant 120.4m @ 10g/t gold and 0.66% copper from HAD117W6 in the South East Crescent zone, which is the best gram metre intercept drilled at Havieron to date. The growth drilling results also continue to extend the high-grade mineralisation outside of the initial Inferred Mineral Resource estimate at Havieron.”
“Newcrest is at a very exciting stage in its organic growth journey and the exceptional drilling results today highlight the significant potential for resource growth at both Red Chris and Havieron,” said Mr Biswas.

Red Chris, British Columbia, Canada(2)
Red Chris is a joint venture between Newcrest (70%) and Imperial Metals Corporation (30%) which is operated by Newcrest.
The Brownfields Exploration program is focused on the discovery of additional zones of higher grade mineralisation within the Red Chris porphyry corridor, including targets outside of Newcrest’s initial Mineral Resource estimate. During the period, there were up to eight diamond drill rigs in operation. A further 29,388m of drilling has been completed from 24 drill holes, with all drill holes intersecting mineralisation (except twelve drill holes which were dedicated geotechnical holes). This contributed to a total of 196,074m of drilling from 161 drill holes since Newcrest acquired its interest in the joint venture in August 2019.
At East Ridge, located adjacent to the East Zone, drilling is ongoing with 14 holes completed and six in progress. The follow up drilling is being completed on a nominal 100m x 100m grid to determine the footprint of the mineralisation and demonstrate the continuity of the higher grade mineralisation.
Results for the reporting period include:
Drilling to date has demonstrated continuity of the East Ridge zone (>0.4g/t Au and >0.4% Cu, >1g/t AuEq) over dimensions of 400m high, 400m long and 125m wide, with the higher grade (>0.8g/t Au and >0.8% Cu, >2g/t AuEq3) over 300m high, 300m long and 100m wide.
East Ridge is located 300m east of East Zone and is outside of Newcrest’s initial Mineral Resource estimate, supporting the potential for resource growth over time. Mineralisation is open to the east and at depth and extends the eastern side of the porphyry corridor as shown in Figures 1 and 2. Follow-up drilling is in progress to further define the extent and continuity of this high grade mineralisation.
A step out hole, RC701^^ drilled 700m east of East Ridge has extended the porphyry corridor beyond the limit of the East Ridge drilling. This hole returned 206m @ 0.2g/t Au & 0.49% Cu from 1,816m. The intercept is one of the deepest on the property. Drilling is planned for the zone between East Ridge and RC701 to search for additional high grade zones.
Approximately 50,000m of growth-related drilling is planned this calendar year from eight drill rigs.
Refer to Appendix 1 for additional information, and the Drillhole data table for all results reported during the period.

Havieron Project, Western Australia(4)
The Havieron Project is operated by Newcrest under a Joint Venture Agreement with Greatland Gold. Following the delivery of the Pre-Feasibility Study on 12 October 2021, Newcrest is now entitled to an additional 10% interest in the Havieron Project, which would bring Newcrest’s cumulative interest to 70%. Newcrest has an option to acquire an additional 5% Joint Venture interest for fair market value, exercisable during the 12 months from 12 December 2021. The Joint Venture Agreement includes tolling principles reflecting the intention of the parties that, subject to a successful exploration program, Feasibility Study and a positive decision to mine, the resulting joint venture mineralised material will be processed at Telfer.
The Havieron Project is centred on a deep magnetic anomaly located 45km east of Telfer in the Paterson Province. The deposit is overlain by more than 420m of post mineral Permian cover. A total of 26,548m of drilling has been completed from 42 drill holes during the quarter. This report is covering results from 33 holes (18 holes completed this quarter, and 15 holes from the June quarter). 23 holes returned significant assay intercepts in excess of 50 gram metres Au (Au ppm x length m). A total of 210,629m of drilling from 254 drill holes has been completed since Newcrest commenced exploration activity (excluding holes in progress, abandoned holes, or drill holes which have not been sampled).
Drilling in the reporting period was focused on potential resource growth at the South East Crescent, Northern Breccia and Eastern Breccia, and infill drilling the South East Crescent Zone to support the potential conversion of the Inferred Resource to Indicated. Drilling completed included:
Further growth drilling continues to show potential for resource additions outside of the existing Inferred Mineral Resource limits, including:
At the South East Crescent, growth drilling targeting higher grade mineralisation at depth on 75m by 75m spacing has extended the mineralisation 250m below the initial Inferred Mineral Resource estimate. Results from three drill holes have been received, with significant results returned from HAD133W1, HAD133W3 and HAD086W3**.
HAD133W1^^ extended the high-grade mineralisation ~250m below the base of the Inferred Mineral Resource estimate. This intercept is ~150m below previously reported hole HAD133^^ (85m @ 11g/t Au & 0.29% Cu from 1,345m including 13m @ 32g/t Au & 0.46% Cu from 1,363m and including 14.5m @ 32g/t Au & 0.33% Cu from 1,396.5m). HAD133W3 targeted approximately 50m below the existing resource and returned a broad crescent zone intercept incorporating three discrete zones of higher grade mineralisation between 1,261.9m and 1,414m down hole with the best interval returning 44.4m @ 5.7g/t Au & 0.11% Cu from 1,306.6m. Partial assay results have been returned for HAD086W3** which returned 44.7m @ 7.1g/t Au & 0.17% Cu from 1,412m (open intercept) including 20.2m @ 15g/t Au & 0.29% Cu from 1,421m from the South East Crescent intersection located 200m below the existing Inferred Mineral Resource extents, and remains open at depth. These new intercepts show an increase in both grade and thickness with increasing depth. Drilling continues to assess the depth extents of South East Crescent which now has a vertical extent of over 900m.
A further 27 infill holes within the South East Crescent zone were completed, ten of which have returned assay results. This drilling is designed to infill the South East Crescent Inferred Mineral Resource volume to 50m x 50m spacing to support the potential upgrade of a significant portion of the Inferred Mineral Resource to Indicated Mineral Resource. Results received from infill drilling support the modelled grade and thickness within the South East Crescent zone Mineral Resource extents. The results also support the continuity of the high grade, and in places upgrade the zone, as represented by HAD117W6 120.4m @ 10g/t Au & 0.66% Cu from 764.6m. This is the best gram metre intercept drilled to date at Havieron (Au_ppm x intercept length of 1,204 gram metres).
At the Northern Breccia, results from fourteen drill holes were returned and a further two drillholes are awaiting assays. The focus of the drilling in this zone is to expand the mineralisation and support potential resource growth. The latest drilling (75m x 75m) has extended the mineralised breccia footprint around the Inferred Mineral Resource extents with reported drill holes supporting extensions to breccia mineralisation. Drilling has confirmed and increased the continuity of internal higher grade Crescent-like mineralisation in a north-west mineralised corridor which now extends up to 300m in length, and 100m wide, between 4,300 – 4,100mRL, and remains open at depth.
At the Eastern Breccia, assays for an additional five holes targeting strike extensions from previously reported drill holes HAD083 and HAD084 have been received. Interpretation of the results indicate the potential for a separate north west trending corridor, with an alteration footprint of approximately 600m, with crescent like higher grade zones developed internal to this Eastern Breccia. Significant assay intercepts were returned for two drill holes (HAD084W2 & HAD141^^), which has extended higher grade mineralisation up to 200m to the north west of HAD084. Drill testing and interpretation of the geological and mineralisation controls of the Eastern Breccia Zone is ongoing.
Eight drill rigs are currently operational, including testing extensions of the South East Crescent Zone below 4,200mRL, extension and definition of the Northern Breccia and associated internal higher-grade zones to support potential expansion of the existing Inferred Mineral Resource. Additionally, infill drilling is ongoing within the Inferred Mineral Resource limits to support ongoing mining studies.
Refer to Appendix 2 for additional information and Drillhole data table for all results reported during the period.

Wilki Project, Western Australia
The Wilki Project is an exploration farm-in and joint venture with Antipa Minerals Limited (Antipa). The project area covers a strategic landholding of ~2,200km2 surrounding the Telfer operation and is adjacent to the Havieron Project. Newcrest entered into this exploration farm-in and joint venture agreement with Antipa on 11 March 2020. Newcrest currently maintains a 9.9% shareholding in Antipa.
During the period the Stage 1 drill program was completed which included scout reverse circulation drilling at Tyama, WEM04, Protos9, Pajero, Triangle North and Telfer SW targets. Assay results are pending, however initial indications suggest that additional diamond drilling is required at the Tyama and WEM20 targets.
These additional work programs which will include ground electromagnetic surveys and diamond drill testing will be completed in the remaining field season.
Juri Joint Venture, Western Australia
The Juri Joint Venture is a farm-in and joint venture agreement with Greatland Gold with respect to its Black Hills and Paterson Range East projects, located within the Paterson Province approximately 50km from the Telfer operation and in proximity to the Havieron Project. The joint venture covers an area of approximately 248km2.
Newcrest has met the Stage 1 exploration expenditure (A$3 million) and now holds a 51% interest in the Juri Joint Venture. Under the terms of the agreement, Newcrest has the potential to earn an additional 24% joint venture interest (for a cumulative 75% joint venture interest) through expenditure of a further A$17 million over three years during Stage 2. Greatland Gold will manage the Juri Joint Venture until the end of calendar year 2021, after which Newcrest has the right to be appointed as Manager.
Assay results for the initial scout drill holes at Goliath, Outamind and Los Diablos targets in Paterson Range East area have downgraded the potential for Havieron like targets at these prospects. Results from initial drilling at the Parlay and Saddle targets within the Black Hills Project are pending. The current and planned exploration program will include the completion of a ground electromagnetic survey over further targets at both Paterson Range East and Black Hills.
Tennant East, Northern Territory
Work programs continue at the Tennant East project (located 200km east of Tennant Creek) with gravity surveys over the initial six target areas now completed. Follow up IP (Induced Polarisation) surveys commenced in September 2021 and are ongoing. Scout drilling will be completed on defined coincident gravity, magnetic and IP targets pending the wet season in calendar year 2022.
Drill activities have commenced at the Jarbidge project in north-eastern Nevada, testing low sulfidation epithermal vein targets.
Drilling at the Fortuity89 project in south-western Nevada is scheduled to begin in the March 2022 quarter pending drill rig availability.
GJ Project, British Columbia, Canada
At the GJ Project, which is part of the Red Chris joint venture, Newcrest is planning to test the depth potential of the Donnelly Zone which is part of a 10km porphyry corridor (Groat Stock). An initial program of two holes for 2,500m originally planned to commence in the December 2021 half has been rescheduled to the June 2022 quarter.
Central Andes, Northern Chile
Drilling is planned to commence on the Gorbea and Mioceno Joint Ventures during the December 2021 quarter.
Northern Andes, Ecuador
Exploration activity resumed at the Gamora Project, which is part of the SurNorte Joint Venture operated by Newcrest. Field preparations have commenced for drilling an initial program of four holes for 2,500m. The program is scheduled to commence in the December 2021 quarter.
At Telfer, exploration activities focused on the Ironclad prospect during the period, including testing for both extensions to near surface mineralisation and extent of mineralisation at depth.
