Aus Tin Mining Releases Operations Update

Australian tin company Aus Tin has released an operations and development update for its Taronga and Granville projects. 

Australian tin company Aus Tin (ASX:ANW) has released an operations and development update for its Taronga and Granville projects.

As quoted from the press release:

Taronga Stage 1 Project

The company has appointed Townes Contracting to undertake an initial program of mining, crushing and civil works associated the Taronga Stage 1 Project. The contract, anticipated to take three months, provides for site establishment, initial mining of approximately 50,000 tonnes of ore and waste (refer Figure 1), crushing of ore and the construction of an 8ML water dam. Townes Contracting are based in Tenterfield (NSW) and have significant experience with quarrying and crushing operations, and with the construction of tailings dams for mining projects. Townes Contracting own all the equipment proposed to be utilised for the contract.

The initial program of work will provide several important outcomes including a provisional metal reconciliation, with the average grade of ore mined to be compared with the respective mining blocks estimated in the 2014 Probable Ore Reserve1 . The initial program of work will also provide contractor productivity and cost data that may be used to optimise pricing for the remainder of the Stage 1 Project, and material for additional metallurgical test work planned prior to the commencement of Stage 1 pilot plant operations. Significantly, the initial program of work of mining and crushing only will reduce water demand at a time when northern NSW is experiencing severe drought conditions.

The remainder of the Stage 1 Project, including the expanded mine and pilot plant operations are targeted to commence late 2019, and it is intended the Stage 1 Project will provide the opportunity to evaluate potential upside on feed grade and tin recovery. However, the results of the above‐mentioned provisional metal reconciliation and metallurgical test work may provide early results that could be used to accelerate elements of the next stage feasibility work.

When Will Australia Legalise Recreational Cannabis?

Recreational cannabis remains illegal in all Australia’s states and territories with the exception of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). But could that change in the future?

So far there are no clear indicators as to when or if Australia could legalise recreational cannabis, but attitudes seem to be changing. Public support is growing, and there’s even some political acceptance.

Read on to learn more about when Australia may legalise recreational cannabis.

Data Review Enhances Prospectivity at Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project

Highlights:

  • CSIRO’s historical datasets show prospectivity for Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project
  • Historical laterite geochemistry data collected prior to mining at Greenbushes
  • Elevated abundances of pathfinder elements display a well-defined anomaly adjacent to Greenbushes South
  • Dispersion of elements into the laterite profiles include arsenic, tantalum, tin and antimony among others
  • Galan to commence sampling and mapping at Greenbushes South next month

Galan Lithium Limited (ASX: GLN) (Galan or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has completed a review of historical CSIRO data which enhances the prospectivity of its Greenbushes South Lithium project.

AIS Resources’ Australian Yalgogrin Gold Project’s first drill hole returns gold intercepts averaging 1.5g/t over 87 meters including 0.9 meters at 9.3 g/t

A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the “Company” or “AIS) reports that the assay analysis from YDD1 at Neighbour’s Farm historic mine workings, the first diamond drill hole at its Yalgogrin Gold Project, NSW, Australia has been completed by SGS Australia. Extensive gold mineralisation was intersected from 58m through to the end of hole at 162.3m with gold mineralisation remaining open at depth and returning gold Intercepts over 87m averaging 1.5gt. The best individual grades returned up to 9.3 gt Au that are supported by consistent mineralisation hosted within the altered rock mass.

A summary of the intervals and average assays is set out below from the top of the core:

Resolution Minerals Ltd Drilling Program at Sunrise Gold Prospect Completed

Adelaide, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Resolution Minerals Ltd (ASX:RML) (FRA:NC3) is pleased to announce that it has completed the Company’s first drilling program on the Sunrise Gold Prospect at the 64North Project in Alaska. Drilling was conducted along an existing access road, targeting outcropping granite hosted mineralisation, analogous in style to Kinross’s Fort Knox Gold Mine, which is one of Alaska’s most profitable mines. The Sunrise Prospect was identified in 2020 by a RML trenching program and is located less than 5km from Northern Star’s operating Pogo Gold Mine.

Summary

– A 1400m long “fence line” of 27 shallow RAB drill holes designed to test outcropping mineralisation at the Sunrise Prospect has been completed.
