Further Information

Harvest has finalized the construction of its solar power facility installed located beside Arapua's producing plant and storage facilities. The plant has capacity to supply 100% of Arapua's power needs, including mining, processing, and administration facilities. In total, 276.79 kilowatts peak (kWp) were installed, including 622 solar modules of 445 Wp each. The Company is now working with Cemig (Companhia Energética de Minas Gerais S.A) - Minas Gerais state power company - to connect the solar plant to the power grid, which is expected to be completed in January/February 2022.

Capacity has been planned according to Harvest's targeted production/sales growth for the next year, however, the modular design of the project will enable capacity to be increased as production is ramped up.

It is estimated that energy operating expenditure (mining and processing) will be reduced by 7% due to a sharp reduction in energy costs, thus increasing Harvest's profitability.
