Affinity secures Maltese medical cannabis licence

Affinity Energy and Health is now one of just a handful of companies that have received approval to establish a medicinal cannabis cultivation and manufacturing facility in Malta. The company plans to use its proven RotoGro technology used in Canada to develop a facility capable of producing 3000 kilograms of cannabis bud per annum once all expansions are completed.

TNG secures access for Mount Peake

TNG Ltd has locked down haul road and borefield/water access at its rapidly advancing Mount Peake vanadium-titanium-iron project in the NT, just weeks after securing the key mineral leases. With these major milestones ticked off, the company will now focus on securing project financing.

Northern Minerals sets rare earth exploration targets

Northern Minerals has generated exploration targets for its Dazzler and Iceman heavy rare earth prospects, located near its operating Browns Range mine in the Kimberley region of WA. The company recently discovered wide, rare earth mineralisation, rich in dysprosium at the deposits and is completing maiden mineral resource estimates for both. Management said the valuable high grade deposits could materially impact the longevity of its Browns Range operation.

PharmAust’s cancer drug aces lab test

PharmAust has confirmed that its flagship anti-cancer drug, Monepantel, produced using the recently determined “GMP” process, continues to demonstrate the drug’s expected ability to kill cancer cells while having little or no impact on non-cancerous cells. Further pre-clinical molecular pathway targeting studies will now be carried out to improve the company’s understanding of how the drug kills cancer cells.

Artemis secures $5.4m in funding for Pilbara projects

Artemis Resources has secured a $5.4m funding package from a UK-based institutional group to underpin development activities at its Carlow Castle project near Karratha and exploration in the emerging Paterson Range area to the east. Funding will be used for resource development activities and metallurgical test work at the Carlow Castle gold-copper-cobalt project and to initiate regional geophysical surveys at the company’s prospective Paterson Range Armada prospect.

Emu kicks off exploration field season in Chile

Precious metals explorer Emu NL has commenced its exploratory field program at the Vidalita project in northern Chile with a comprehensive campaign of shallow aircore drilling planned for its Peon 4, Vidalota D and Jotahues areas. The campaign will also target higher grade gold mineralisation at its main Vidalita project, vectoring towards a prospective fault zone it has interpreted from existing drilling data.

Lithium Australia to apply technology in Europe

Lithium Australia is looking to use its proven technologies that can turn lithium mica mineralised waste into lithium-ion battery cathode powders at its Sadisdorf project in Germany and for similar resources elsewhere in Europe. The company will now include its proprietary technologies, such as its SiLeach process for extracting lithium phosphate from micas, into the scoping study for Salisdorf.

7% nickel hit for St George near Leonora

St George Mining has hit a 5.25m drill intersection going 6.95% nickel, 2.67% copper and 0.23% cobalt from 185m down-hole at its Investigators prospect near Leonora in WA. Another impressive 6.39m long intersection in a separate hole showed 6.48% nickel, 2.77% copper and 0.21% cobalt from 184.42m down-hole. The impressive results from massive sulphide intercepts continue to expand the footprint of mineralisation at the prospect.

Myanmar turns waste into riches with drill bit

Myanmar Metals’ drill campaign at its Bawdwin base metals project in Myanmar, has intersected high grade mineralisation of up to 45m @ 6.7% lead, 5.6% zinc and 113g/t silver from 76m down-hole in an area previously considered to be waste. The results could significantly add to the Bawdwin resource estimates and the economics of the China Pit pre-feasibility study, both of which are expected in early 2019.

12 gram gold hit for Tyranna/Alliance at Weednanna

Tyranna Resources’ partner Alliance Resources has returned some impressive high-grade intersections including a long 20m intersection going 12.44g/t gold from the Weednanna gold prospect within the Wilcherry JV project in South Australia. More RC drilling will take place in December to upgrade resources in the eastern optimised pit area from the inferred to indicated confidence level.

Billion dollar plus NPV for Infinity lithium project

Infinity Lithium says its proposed AUD$395m Spanish lithium project could potentially churn out AUD$172m a year before tax in annual operating free cash flows for at least 24 years. The lovely set of numbers were contained in the company’s lower level scoping study announced to the market this week that details the preliminary economics of building a lithium hydroxide plant along side its lithium mine.
