Buru edges closer to new Canning Basin oil production

Canning Basin focussed hydrocarbon explorer and producer, Buru Energy, has largely completed its lateral section drilling at the emerging Ungani 7H well within the productive Ungani oilfield in the Kimberley region of WA. The company also reported some $3m in revenue from other wells within the Ungani oilfield this week, with two further production wells in the field, Ungani 6H and 7H, expected to come on-line during December.

Venus/Rox hit gold near Penny West mine

Venus Metals and Rox Resources have hit high grade gold in aircore drilling at their Venus JV project near Youanmi in WA. The drilling is located north of the old Penny West gold mine and Spectrum Metals’ recent much-heralded Penny North discovery. Best numbers came in at 4 meters grading just over 7 grams per tonne from 24m depth and 5m grading nearly 2.5 grams per tonne from 60m downhole.

Pharmaust calls for K9 volunteers for cancer drug trials

ASX listed biotech, PharmAust, has put a call out for canine volunteers to join its anti-cancer drug treatment trials in partnership with veterinary practices across Australia. The trials will study the effectiveness of Pharmaust’s anti-cancer drug in dogs suffering from B cell lymphoma – the most common canine cancer. Preliminary findings from phase I trials were very positive, with a notable reduction in tumours and prolonged lifespan.

Blina cashes out stake in NZ exploration play

Blina Minerals will cash in its 11% stake in private New Zealand focused explorer, Condamie Resources and will pocket around $200,000 from the transaction. The company will use the funds to explore its recently acquired Barkly gold-copper project in the NT. The Bluebird prospect is arguably the most promising target at Barkly and historically threw up some lucrative drill intercepts like 20m @ 8.17g/t gold and 0.61% copper.

Vonex hikes revenue by 25%

ASX-listed, cloud-based telecommunications pacesetter, Vonex, last week revealed it had generated quarterly contract revenues of $1.62m, a 25% jump over its June quarter results and an 18% hike over the same quarter last year. Vonex’s business received a shot in the arm this year after the telco upstart inked a partnership agreement with Qantas Business Rewards, with a noticeable upswing in numbers now starting to occur.

MGC writes 1000th medicinal cannabis prescription

MGC Pharmaceuticals has expanded the number of patients prescribing for or being processed to receive prescriptions of its medical cannabis-based pharmaceutical products in Australia and the UK to around 500 with the company racking up its 1000th prescription this month. Management said that the key milestone readily demonstrates its strengthening position and momentum in those key markets, with its sales graph continuing to climb month by month.

Venus onto new copper-nickel targets

Venus Metals has wasted no time in getting a drill rig on top of its four new electromagnetic, or “EM” targets that were thrown up just last week at the company's Vidure copper-nickel prospect in the Youanmi region of WA. The new EM targets represent potentially un-discovered massive sulphide occurrences that may be hiding beneath the surface. With Youanmi a hot area right now, the results should be interesting.

Blina to drill test NT copper-gold play

Blina Minerals is all set to kick off a maiden drilling program at its recently acquired Barkley project near Tennant Creek in the NT. The company will drill test extensions to high-grade copper-gold-bismuth mineralisation at the Bluebird prospect, where historical drilling hit numerous stellar intersections such as 20m going 8.17g/t gold, 0.61% copper and 0.22% bismuth from 157m down-hole.

TNG submits Mount Peake Environment plan to NT Gov

TNG Limited has submitted a comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement for its Darwin TIVAN processing facility to the NT Government in support of its wholly-owned, integrated Mount Peake vanadium-titanium-iron mining project near Alice Springs in the NT.

Altech inches closer to HPA production in Malaysia

Altech Chemicals is inching closer to production of high-purity alumina after completing Stage 1 of construction at its HPA plant in Malaysia, both on time and budget. The company is now progressing Stage 2, which includes the development of an on-site electrical substation for the processing facility. Altech will produce 4,500 tonnes a year of HPA sourced from pure kaolin clays in WA.

Instos plough up to $25m into Adriatic

Adriatic Metals has raised $25m via a two-tranche institutional placement to expedite an aggressive exploration program through to a BFS at its exciting, Vareš multi-metals project in Bosnia. The company is also seeking a secondary listing of its shares on the London Stock Exchange during the current quarter to capture further interest from UK and European investors that are looking to support the world-class, high-grade project.

Near surface drill hits for Hot Chili at Cortadera

Hot Chili’s drilling at the Cuerpo 3 deposit within its Cortadera porphyry discovery in Chile has hit a 264m long, near-surface intercept of copper and gold mineralisation from just 52m down-hole, opening up the potential for future open-pit extraction. Another hole 250m to the southwest recorded a strongly mineralised porphyry system from surface to at least 313m depth, confirming the zone is also situated in shallow up-dip positions.
