Canadian listed conglomerate gold specialist Novo Resources has revealed a significant increase in mineral resources at its Beatons Creek gold project near Nullagine in WA. The resource now sits at 8.38 million tonnes grading 2.47 grams per tonne gold for 667,000 ounces.

Northern set to double rare earth grade via ore sorting

Northern Minerals says that ore sorting tests of stockpiled ore at its Browns Range rare earths mine has the potential to double the mineral grade to about 2% total rare earth oxide. The test work used sensors to sort the rare earth mineralisation from waste rock based on its bulk density and magnetic properties and the company says it could set up ore sorting infrastructure for just $4m.

Coziron finds more Pilbara gold in old auger samples

Coziron Resources’ assays of historic auger drilling at the Croydon Top Camp gold project in the Pilbara have returned a maximum result of 25g/t gold compared to the historic 8g/t gold originally produced. Upgraded levels of “pathfinder elements” for lode-style gold mineralisation were also encountered with results from the re-assaying of 182 auger pulps across the project to be used to help discern new drill targets.

Altech close to wrapping up Alumina plant finance

Altech Chemicals is closing in on securing the balance of funds it requires for its high purity alumina project with due diligence on the proposed mezzanine debt facility expected to be completed by the end of November.

Blackstone Minerals has confirmed a significant new discovery of high grade cobalt and gold mineralisation at its Erebor prospect in British Columbia, Canada. It is the first new find of cobalt in the district since the 1930s with rock chip samples going up to 2.3% cobalt and just over an ounce to the tonne gold, with some highly anomalous copper and nickel results thrown in for good measure.

BlackEarth unearths exceptional graphite rock chip

BlackEarth Minerals has identified new high grade target zones at its Maniry graphite project in southern Madagascar with rock chip sampling returned jaw dropping grades of up to 48% total graphitic carbon. These zones are located in the underexplored northwest corner of the project and will be tested during the trenching program that is due to start this month.

Bellevue racks up bonanza gold hits at Viago
