Significant drop in CAPEX for Greenland at Kvanefjeld

Rare earth element developer Greenland Minerals has flagged a substantial reduction in the capital costs for civil earth works at its huge Kvanefjeld rare earth element project located on the southern tip of Greenland. An engineering review has optimised the process plant and site infrastructure ground footprint at the proposed mine, reducing the volume of material disturbance by 80% from previous estimates.

Sky and Space starts construction of nano-satellites

Sky and Space Global has started construction of its nano-satellites after a key design review by Nasdaq listed contractor GomSpace, found that all technical components of the design met the required standard to proceed. The company said the first batch of the mini satellites is on track for launch in 2019 with successive launches in the following quarters until the entire constellation of about 200 satellites is in orbit during 2020.

Strike kicks into high gear at Jaws-1

St George extends nickel/copper sulphides near Leonora

St George Mining has outlined an extension to its high grade massive nickel/copper sulphide mineralisation at the Investigators East prospect near Leonora, with a new drilling result of 3.55m @ 4.67% nickel, 2.27% copper, 0.2% cobalt and 2.94g/t combined platinum group elements from 116m down-hole. The intersection has extended mineralisation down-plunge and is several hundred metres east of recent results within a defined 1.5km east-west trending mineralised corridor.

Volt locks in key Tanzanian mining licences

Volt Resources is now free to progress its proposed Stage 1 and Stage 2 developments at the Bunyu graphite project after it was granted two mining licences by Tanzania’s Ministry of Minerals. The company will now focus on completing its proposed USD$40m bond issue on Tanzania’s Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange. Once this is completed, the company will start front end engineering work for the initial Stage 1 operations and order long lead time components.

Spectacular result extends mineralisation for Adriatic

Adriatic Metals has reported another wide, high grade base metal, gold and silver intersections from its emerging Rupice multi-mineral ore system in central Bosnia. The new drilling result of 66m grading 9.5% zinc, 4.9% lead, 187g/t silver, 2.4g/t gold, 0.5% copper and 56% barite from 204m down-hole extends mineralisation by a further 35m at the northern end of the deposit, adding more tonnes adjacent to the concession boundary.

Artemis signs processing deal with Pacton Gold

Artemis Resources’ wholly-owned Radio Hill processing plant in the west Pilbara region of WA has drawn Eric Sprott-backed Canadian explorer Pacton Gold to sign a MoU for a potential processing deal.

Infinity expands scope of lithium hydroxide study

Infinity Lithium has expanded the scope of its lithium hydroxide scoping study for the San Jose mine in western Spain to consider the potential to deliver either lithium sulphate or lithium hydroxide. Work underway has already noted the leached material will go through a lithium sulphate stage regardless of whether lithium carbonate or lithium hydroxide is selected as the final product.

Strong geophysical targets for Myanmar at Bawdwin

Myanmar Metals has delineated strong indications of potential shallow conductive base metal sulphide mineralisation at the prospective ER Valley exploration target area, just southeast of its flagship Bawdwin multi-commodity resource in Myanmar. The area has numerous artisanal workings and anomalous zinc, lead and silver assay being recorded from historical diamond drilling and sludge samples taken from horizonal adits. Elevated copper, cobalt and nickel values have also been recorded.

Tyranna hits near surface gold in SA

Tyranna Resources has intersected near surface gold peaking at a top grade of 11.6g/t gold from resource drilling at the Campfire Bore prospect of its Jumbuck project in South Australia.
