#POW Power Metal Resources PLC – FDR Australia – Wallal Drill Clearance & Update

Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW), the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio, provides an update to shareholders in respect of its interests in the Paterson Province of Western Australia (the “Paterson Interests”) held through its 62.12% subsidiary First Development Resources PLC (“FDR”) which is seeking a planned listing on the London capital markets.

This update relates specifically to the Wallal Project (“Wallal” or the “Project”), one of three Paterson Province projects held by FDR and includes the Wallal Tenements (E45/5816, E45/5853 and E45/5880) (the “Tenements”).

Highlights

·    The Heritage Clearance Survey at Wallal, completed under the supervision of the Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation and the Nyangumarta people in September 2022 has confirmed site establishment works for drilling may now proceed.

·    FDR have immediately mobilised an operational team to site to the  eastern magnetic bullseye anomaly identified during the in-depth desktop review (the “Eastern Anomaly) to establish access and to prepare the drilling pad, enabling the commencement of diamond drilling which is expected to follow immediately after the listing of FDR in the London capital markets.

·    The Phase I diamond core drilling programme has been designed to initially test the Eastern Anomaly, which is interpreted to consist of two lobes which result in a distinct target area of approximately 2.5km x 2.5km, targeting a large-scale gold-copper discovery.

Tristan Pottas Chief Executive Officer of First Development Resources plc commented:

“The completion of the Heritage Clearance Survey provides FDR with the final approval required to proceed with the Phase I diamond core drilling programme at FDR’s flagship Wallal Project in the Paterson province.

I would personally like to thank all the key stakeholders and consultants who have helped us get to this decisive point in the evolution of FDR, particularly the Nyangumarta people and Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation.

On receipt of the final report, we have immediately engaged the services of an earthworks contractor to prepare the site to enable our drilling partner DDH1 to commence drilling at the earliest convenience following our planned UK listing.”

Paul Johnson Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal Resources plc commented:

Without question this is an exciting time for the Power Metal and FDR teams as we close in on listing, an event which will be followed with drilling at Wallal targeting a large-scale gold-copper discovery. 

From day one to date, FDR have demonstrated their intention to deploy capital immediately into the ground to improve the understanding of the various targets across their project portfolio. This is a mindset that I expect to continue after the planned UK listing.”

WALLAL HERITAGE CLEARANCE SURVEY

The Heritage Clearance Survey (the “Survey”) was completed at Wallal between 12-15 September 2022. The original Survey request which included a detailed description of the Phase I diamond core drilling programme and site-specific maps was submitted to Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation (“YMAC”) by the Company’s appointed Exploration Manager on 31 January 2022. The Survey is a required precursor to the planned Phase I diamond core drilling programme at the company’s Wallal project located in the Paterson Province of Western Australia.

The Survey was completed in accordance with Section 18 of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 and in accordance with the terms of the Heritage Agreement in place with YMAC as agent for the Nyangumarta Warrarn Aboriginal Corporation. The Survey was undertaken with the full involvement of Nyangumarta representatives. As native title holders the Nyangumarta possess rights and interests according to traditional law and custom including the right to be fully informed about activities on their country and to speak about their country.

The Survey team, appointed by YMAC, included representatives from Nyangumarta, a YMAC archaeologist, a consulting anthropologist, and members of FDR senior management team. Two 400m x 400m areas were surveyed covering the two planned drill locations designed to initially test the Eastern anomaly (“Area A”) and the secondary target, the Border anomaly (“Area B”). In addition to the drill sites, the Survey also covered the route of new tracks necessary to access the drill locations.  At both drill locations additional east-west orientated survey grids (measuring 2.73km x 4km at Area A and 1.27km x 4km at Area B) were delineated to facilitate potential future on-ground geophysical surveys.

Following the Survey, the Nyangumarta representatives asserted that the work programme proposed at Area A and Area B, was clear of ethnographic and archaeological sites or concerns and that the proposed works programme could proceed.

SITE ESTABLISHMENT AND ACCESS

Following receipt of the Heritage Clearance Survey Report a team led by the FDR’s Exploration Manager has been mobilised to Wallal to prepare the site in preparation for drilling which is scheduled to commence immediately following FDR’s proposed UK listing.  

 

To enable site works to proceed efficiently, the existing access track which links the drilling sites to the well-maintained Nyangumarta Highway, will require minor earthwork improvements and the drill pads and camp accommodation areas will be levelled and prepared ahead of drill contractor mobilisation

 

Both the access and the drill pad location were surveyed during the recent Heritage Clearance Survey. Site clearance is expected to take approximately three days to complete.

WALLAL PHASE I DIAMOND CORE DRILLING PROGRAMME

FDR’s Phase I diamond core drilling programme has been designed in conjunction with Perth based consultancy Resource Potentials Pty Ltd (“Resource Potentials”). The programme is targeting the Proterozoic basement rocks below the Permian Grant Group which are believed to host the sources of the magnetic bullseye anomalies identified during the completion of an in-depth review of all geological and geophysical data associated with the Wallal project area.

Three magnetic bullseye anomalies were identified in the review, the Western, Eastern and Border anomalies. The magnetic bullseye anomalies are of particular interest due to their possible geological similarities to the regionally significant Havieron discovery (Greatland Gold – Newcrest Joint venture).

The Havieron deposit is coincident with a magnetic bullseye anomaly detected by an airborne magnetic survey and has a similar amplitude to Wallal, approximately 100nanoTesla (“nT”) for the Eastern Anomaly and 80nT for Havieron.

The Phase I diamond core drilling programme has been designed to initially test the Eastern Anomaly. The Eastern Anomaly is interpreted to consist of two lobes which result in a distinct target area of approximately 2.5km x 2.5km. An estimate of depth of the cover sequence has been used to constrain the modelled depth of approximately 800 metres to the top of the Eastern magnetic source body.

The Phase I diamond core drilling programme will consist of a minimum of two sub-vertical boreholes totalling approximately 2,720 metres, which will be drilled using rotary open hole to about 150 metres downhole depth and then full core drilling techniques there onwards.

Depending on ground conditions encountered, it is expected that the holes will be commenced using reverse circulation drilling techniques, followed by 83mm (PQ3) or 61.1mm (HQ3) diameter core with a 50.5mm (NQ2) tail to total depth. The parameters for the planned boreholes are set out in Table 1:

#KAV Kavango Resources Plc – KCB Drilling Update

Botswana focussed metals exploration company Kavango Resources plc (LSE:KAV) (“Kavango”) is pleased to announce an operational update from the Company’s  Kalahari Copper Belt (“KCB”) project area.

Following interpretation of results from the ongoing Controlled Source Audio Magnetotelluric (“CSAMT”) surveys (announced >>> 12 October 2022), Kavango’s exploration team has decided to complete the holes in the current drill campaign at PL082/2018 using diamond drilling. Each hole will now first be drilled with a reverse circulation ‘pre collar’ and then completed with a diamond ‘tail’.

The multipurpose rig can be used for both reverse circulation and diamond drilling equipment. The latter is now being mobilised to site.

Diamond drilling will enable Kavango to test properly the interpretation of the CSAMT data to target depth and retrieve drill core samples to evaluate the target lithology, structure, alteration, geochemistry and mineralization.

Hole KCBRC001 has been pre-collared to 153m using reverse circulation drilling and the multipurpose rig has been moved to the site of Hole KCBRC002.

KCBRC002 will test the Northern Zone target, which is an 8km long soil sampling copper anomaly that coincides with the edge of a magnetic high, which Kavango believes could represent a fault.

Kavango has interpreted the CSAMT inversion over KCBRC001 & KCBRC002 to indicate the presence of the crucial D’Kar/Ngwako Pan formational contact within 150m-300m of surface. This formational contact is the primary control for economic copper-silver deposits across the Kalahari Copper Belt. Kavango is keen to test its interpretation of the CSAMT results with diamond drilling to (i) prove that the inverted CSAMT data is effective in identifying the D’kar/Ngwako Pan contact, (ii) to verify interpreted fault structures, and (iii) determine if these targets are mineralized.

Jeremy S. Brett, Senior Geophysical Consultant to Kavango Resources, commented:

The CSAMT survey is providing a potential breakthrough in the Kalahari Copper Belt for Kavango. We are fortunate to be able to test this immediately with drilling. 

The CSAMT data over 3 test lines has been inverted and interpreted to show the contact between the D’Kar and Ngwako Pan formations, which is the main target horizon in the KCB. 

A very high degree of resolution has been achieved with the inversions on the known folding in the belt, and has verified Kavango’s hypotheses on variable wavelengths of the folds and brittle fault accomodations within the fold patterns to accomdate strain.  The faults are postulated to have acted as conduits for mineralizing fluids, that could host deposits where they intersect the D’Kar / Ngwako Pan contact.

The results from the CSAMT inversions are providing us with estimated depths for the D’Kar / Ngwako Pan contact in the range of 150m to 300m from surface.  This has led to the decision to switch to diamond drilling, in order to reach target depths with confidence and return drillcore for analyses.

Next Steps:

The northernmost CSAMT Line 4A is currently completed on Kavango’s ground and the geophysical team is ready to deploy across the part of Sandfire’s ground that hosts the Kronos deposit.  This calibration point for the CSAMT survey is expected to confirm the signature for the D’Kar / Ngwako Pan contact.

Kavango had mobilised a multipurpose rig to give maximum operational flexibility as the drill campaign progressed. The ability to switch between reverse circulation and diamond core drilling is a strength of this programme and the Company is now able to take full advantage of this. The results of the CSAMT survey necessitate the switch to diamond drill core in order to test the interpreted contact between the D’Kar and Ngwako Pan rocks, which is the critical target horizon in the KCB.

Kavango has now decided to pre-collar its current planned holes on PL082/2018 with cost-effective reverse circulation drilling and then to return to each of them to complete with the diamond tails. The Company’s expectation is that the core samples will provide valuable geological data that confirms the presence of the crucial D’kar/Ngwako Pan formational contact in Kavango’s licence area and, hopefully, copper-silver mineralisation.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS, ASX: MIO) Lake Giles Feasibility Update: Feasibility Study closing in on delivery with key consultant site visit completed

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) has announced that progress towards completion of the Feasibility Study for Macarthur’s high grade magnetite Lake Giles Iron Project is continuing to build pace.

Highlights

  • Site visit conducted by Stantec engineers and consultants at Moonshine and Moonshine North.
  • Geotechnical drilling programme of works to support mine planning work continues at site.
  • Future site visit for Port of Esperance planned shortly.
  • Feasibility Study remains on track for delivery.

Last week, the Company’s lead consultants (Stantec) visited Moonshine and Moonshine North to undertake a formal site visit. Stantec are advising the Company on the design of the process flow sheet for the magnetite process plant, as well as on the non-process infrastructure requirements for the Company’s planned high grade magnetite project in Western Australia.

The detailed visit to the project site, located approximately 115km west of Menzies in Western Australia, was conducted under guidance by Company representatives and took in all relevant aspect of the Lake Giles Iron Project that will be covered by the Feasibility Study at the proposed mine site, as well as other areas required for the development of key non-process infrastructure (including transport logistics infrastructure such as the proposed haul road and rail siding).

The previously announced geotechnical diamond core drill programme at Moonshine and Moonshine North is continuing to progress (see the 12 August 2021 announcement here), and the Company and its study consultants will shortly be undertaking a separate site visit to the Port of Esperance to support the engineering design works for on-port infrastructure that will also inform capital and operating cost outputs for the Feasibility Study.

Andrew Bruton, CEO of Macarthur Minerals commented: “Last week’s site visit is another important milestone in the development of the Feasibility Study for Macarthur. The foundational work required to underpin the delivery of the study will position Macarthur to advance with the execution phase of the project. However, engineering and design works must be married with reality, and in order to deliver truly successful outcomes for future mining operations, the teams responsible for assisting with delivery must experience and understand the landscape and environment within which the project will be developed. Properly examining and experiencing the terrain and conditions will help underpin realistic capital and operating cost assumptions and outputs for the Feasibility Study. We are very encouraged by all the work completed to date. The Study continues to progress within budget and on schedule, and we look forward to updating the market with the final results shortly. Walk with us and discover something big.”

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS, ASX: MIO) Strengthens DSO Export Position in the Yilgarn Region With Additional Rail Haulage Deal.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) has announced that it has agreed terms with Aurizon (“Aurizon”), for the transport of direct shipment ore (DSO) at a rate of up to 500,000 tonnes per annum between West Kalgoorlie and Kwinana.

Macarthur’s combined rail position now extends the Company’s potential access to rail haulage capacity in Western Australia to almost 1 million tonnes over the next 12 months, and up to 2.1 million tonnes in aggregate over 4 years, subject to securing matching port access.

Increasing Macarthur’s aggregated rail access is critical to accelerating the Company’s early revenue objectives. The maximising of rail capacity is subject to successfully securing matching capacity at Fremantle and Esperance ports.

The Company’s continued incremental approach to building rail access is both deliberate and strategic as it seeks to maximise opportunities for the export of iron ore products at the earliest available opportunity.

Key Agreement Terms

The rail haulage agreement with Aurizon requires the transport of a minimum of 450,000 tonnes over a term of 12 months and is subject to satisfaction of certain conditions precedent (which include Macarthur securing matching port access on commercially acceptable terms, and Aurizon achieving a number of regulatory approvals).

Enhancing the Pathway for Export

The agreement with Aurizon increases Macarthur’s potential contracted rail capacity in Western Australia to just under 1 million tonnes over the next 12 months (and up to 2.1 million tonnes in aggregate over the next 4 years).

Aurizon’s Bulk business is the largest transporter of Iron Ore outside the Pilbara. Rail Capacity is an important link in an emerging transport solution that will enable Macarthur to take advantage of the strong iron ore pricing conditions and target early revenue generation in the current commodity cycle. Macarthur’s early revenue generation targets include the export of GWR’s DSO products whilst the Company completes its planning mining, production and export of a DSO product from Ularring at the earliest available opportunity.

DSO and Magnetite Project Financing to be Accelerated

With Macarthur’s various production strategies now gaining material traction, the Company is determined to accelerate its project financing.

Anticipated cash inflows from Warrants

During the course of September and December this year, a material number of in-the-money warrants are anticipated to be exercised. Those warrant holders electing to exercise will be delivered an opportunity to consolidate their position, and this will in turn, provide the Company with funds to support the pursuit of revenue generating activities.

DSO Funding

In response to material milestones being achieved on project and logistics planning, Macarthur now intends to accelerate arrangements for project financing to support DSO mining operations at Ularring. Management has already advanced its pre-planning over the course of the last several months, and a funding process (at a yet to be determined future price) to support the debt/equity capital requirements for the DSO mining operations is being progressed.

The Company is intending to open formal negotiations for mandates for the purpose of settling the engagements and structuring for the raise of required debt/equity funding to support future DSO mining operations.

Magnetite Funding

Finally, the Company intends to open negotiations for a mandate (or mandates) to secure an early, conditional equity and debt funding deal that will enable Macarthur to progress towards first magnetite production following delivery of the current Feasibility Study. Part of this funding would be allocated to necessary pre-production activities to streamline the delivery of the magnetite project. Opportunities for an early combined funding solution that can support both the planned DSO mining operations and financing of magnetite mining operations through to first production are being actively pursued.

The acceleration of Macarthur’s financing strategy is now firmly in motion as it strengthens its resolve to transition into production as quickly as possible.

Andrew Bruton, CEO of Macarthur Minerals commented: “This agreement has the potential to increase Macarthur’s overall access to rail haulage capacity and enhances the foundations for the Company’s ambitions to commence iron ore exports as soon as possible. It is another pleasing step towards realising our objective to transition to revenue generating activities and Macarthur is delighted to be partnering with Aurizon. With continued diligence, resolve and respectful engagement with key stakeholders, we remain very optimistic that it is now not a matter of if, but when, the Company will finally conclude the balance of the necessary arrangements that will enable it to commence moving and exporting iron ore products. This is only the beginning of the next phase of Macarthur’s journey – walk with us and discover something big.”

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS, ASX: MIO) says Perth based CPS Capital Group to manage ASX listing of Gold and Copper Assets.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) has announced that CPS Corporate Advisors (“CPS”) has been appointed as the lead Broker for the proposed spin out of the Company’s Pilbara gold, copper and lithium tenements (“Pilbara Assets”).

The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary Macarthur Lithium Pty Ltd, which holds the Company’s Pilbara Assets will be renamed Infinity Mining Limited (“Infinity”) and converted to a public company (subject to finalisation of ASIC approvals). Under the agreement with CPS, Infinity proposes to undertake an initial public offering (IPO) and make application for listing on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in the coming months. Under an agreement with Zanil Pty Ltd, Infinity retains the rights to acquire additional assets in the Central Goldfields upon completing the listing process.

Infinity Exploration Program

Infinity intends to commence a programme of work that is focused on fast tracking drill targets to support an early 2022 drilling campaign across multiple gold and copper targets defined by Macarthur’s previous exploration at the Hillside Gold and Copper Project near Marble Bar in the Pilbara region.

Infinity has completed its due diligence on 10 historic gold and copper tenements in the Leonora area of the Central Goldfields region of Western Australia, which Zanil Pty Ltd (“Zanil”) is authorised to deal with on behalf of the tenement holders (“Central Goldfields Assets”). An independent technical report on the Pilbara Assets and the Central Goldfields Assets has been compiled to support a transaction, and Infinity and Zanil are finalising the terms of a sale and purchase agreement for the Central Goldfield Assets. The Central Goldfields Assets will be vended into Infinity following the listing on ASX.

The Company will provide further details with respect to the spin out transaction and IPO listing in a subsequent news release.

Joe Phillips, Managing Director of Macarthur Minerals commented: “The appointment of CPS Capital Group will trigger a Seed funding round during August 2021, to support the IPO listing and advance the exploration programs for the Hillside Project and three key areas around Leonora that host historic drilling results. This 2021 program is designed to build the platform for an early 2022 Pilbara exploration campaign. The Company will provide further details with respect to the seed funding round and progress on the spin-out transaction and IPO listing in a subsequent news release.”

Jason Peterson Managing Director / Head of Corporate, CPS Capital Group commented:CPS is excited to be working again with the Board of Macarthur to achieve the spin-out listing, of the non- Iron Ore assets of Macarthur, into the new entity to be IPO’ed, Infinity Mining Limited. CPS has had a very good working relationship with Macarthur as a supporter of Macarthur and introducing Macarthur to investors via our client base. We look forward to achieving the same goals with Infinity with this highly professional team.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS, ASX: MIO) Lake Giles Feasibility Study Advancing under Steady Hand of Global Consultancy Stantec.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) has provided an update on the progress of the current Feasibility Study for the Company’s flagship Lake Giles Iron Project.

The Company’s lead consultant, Engenium now Stantec (Stantec), are advancing metallurgical process test work, process flow sheet development and key non-process infrastructure engineering design work for the Feasibility Study that is presently being undertaken on the Company’s flagship high grade magnetite Lake Giles Iron Project in Western Australia.

Stantec’s highly experienced metallurgical process consultant Mr Neville Dowson leads the metallurgical test work and development of the process flow sheet and engineering works for a metallurgical process plant design that will target delivery of a high grade +65% Fe magnetite concentrate. Under Stantec’s guidance, metallurgical sample testing is underway in Perth utilising the expertise of Bureau Veritas (a world leader in inspection, resting and certification). The results of this test work will provide Stantec with the crucial outputs to complete the metallurgical process flow sheet engineering design work.

Stantec is a highly regarded global consultancy with extensive experience in the mining sector. Stantec’s presence in Australia and Canada provides the perfect platform to deliver Macarthur’s Feasibility Study to required standards for the Australian and Canadian markets. The Stantec team have considerable experience in the design of magnetite processing plants. Dr Richard Peck, Macarthur’s magnetite processing subject matter expert is providing oversight on Stantec’s process design, metallurgical test work programme and preparation of the process design criteria, flow diagram and mass balance.

Jose Granado, Stantec Country Leader for Australia commented:We are proud to leverage our global expertise and passion for applying sustainable best practice to help advance the Lake Giles Iron Project. By continuing our partnership with Macarthur Minerals, we are ready to deliver a feasibility study that paves the way forward for this important project.”

Macarthur Minerals CEO Andrew Bruton commented: “Following the onset of the Global Covid-19 pandemic early last year and throughout the balance of 2020, the Company has been steadily progressing the foundational work required to underpin the delivery of the study. Much of that work has focused on necessary background work to advance route to market concepts and delivery mechanisms. Although much of that work has not been visible to the market, it is essential. 

The Feasibility Study is on track for delivery this year, and with the combined technical capabilities and experience of Stantec’s team lead by Neville Dowson and Macarthur’s highly experienced metallurgical consultant Dr Richard Peck and mining engineer Bernard Holtshousen, the Company has high expectations, and an equally high level of confidence, that the Feasibility Study will meet the expectations of the market.

Stantec’s involvement in key areas will help bring the Feasibility Study in on time and within budget. We look forward to continuing to work with them through these final phases of delivery.”

Iron ore is in a bull market — and it won’t run out of steam soon, says Goldman

Article from CNBC by Abigail Ng

KEY POINTS

“It would be wrong to say that the bull market for iron ore, you know, is on the cusp of ending,” said Nicholas Snowdon, head of base metals and bulks research at Goldman Sachs.

Prices are being supported by very strong demand and suppliers have been disciplined in not increasing production, he explained, adding that inventories are also very low.

While prices are not likely to remain above $200 per ton, there won’t be a collapse and they could hover between $100 to $150 per ton, analysts at the Singapore Iron Ore Forum said.
