07:46 EDTRIO, TRQOyu Tolgoi receives audit report from Mongolian Tax Authority
Turquoise Hill (TRQ) announced that Oyu Tolgoi has received an audit report from the Mongolian Tax Authority claiming unpaid taxes, penalties and disallowed entitlements associated with the initial development of the Oyu Tolgoi mine. Turquoise Hill is of the firm view that Oyu Tolgoi has paid all taxes and charges as required under the Investment Agreement and Mongolian law. Turquoise Hill and Rio Tinto (RIO) are reviewing the detailed tax claim. Any element of the claim that amounts to a breach of the investment agreement will trigger the dispute resolution process outlined in the investment agreement including possible international arbitration. The impact of these claims on resolution of the outstanding shareholder issues is unclear at this time. However, completion of the underground feasibility study is likely to be delayed if a resolution to the tax matters is not reached before June 30. Turquoise Hill CEO Kay Priestly said, "We strongly disagree with the claims in the audit report and are currently reviewing all options to resolve this matter."

19:08 EDTTRQTurquoise Hill announces filing of statutory feasibility study by Oyu Tolgoi
Turquoise Hill announced that Oyu Tolgoi has filed a statutory 2015 Oyu Tolgoi Feasibility Study, or OTFS 2015, with the Mongolian Minerals Council, or MMC. Under Mongolian law, Oyu Tolgoi is required to submit an update to the feasibility study at least every five years; the 2009 Oyu Tolgoi Feasibility Study was accepted in March 2010. When outstanding shareholder matters have been resolved, an updated feasibility study will be submitted to replace OTFS 2015 for acceptance by the MMC. OTFS 2015 is based on the same study as, and is consistent with, the 2014 Oyu Tolgoi Technical Report, which was disclosed by Turquoise Hill in October 2014. However, since the specific commencement date for development of the underground Hugo North block cave is unknown and dependent on resolution of shareholder matters, the OTFS 2015 study reserve case presents the underground without a start date and separate from the open pit. A life of mine case is also presented in OTFS 2015. In this case, a long-dated nominal start date was assumed for underground development. This date was selected only to deal with the uncertainty of commencement and does not reflect an intended underground restart date.
