Boss “Significantly” Increases Exploration Target at Honeymoon

Australian company Boss Resources has increased the exploration target at its Honeymoon uranium project in South Australia.

Australian company Boss Resources (ASX:BOE) has increased the exploration target at its Honeymoon uranium project in South Australia.

The larger target area announcement comes less than a week after Boss Resources reported the completion of its phase one restart program at Honeymoon.

The energy-focused explorer released a mineral resource estimate for the Honeymoon restart area in February, reporting a total contained uranium oxide resource of 36 million pounds of U3O8 at a cutoff of 250 parts per million (ppm).

Included in the revised exploration target are 10 specific areas, seven of which are located within the eastern region tenements. The remaining three are situated in the western region tenements.

“The increased exploration target is another step forward, and we look forward to unlocking additional large-scale uranium mineralization within the broader Honeymoon uranium project,” said Duncan Craib, managing director of Boss Resources.

Incorporating the increased exploration target, Boss estimates the Honeymoon uranium resource to be between 26,300 and 86,160 tonnes of contained U3O8, using a cutoff of 250 ppm.

“At the upper end of the target range, this represents a 90 percent increase from the previously reported exploration target,” notes the report.

Boss has been working to advance the Honeymoon uranium mine since acquiring the defunct project in 2015. Weak uranium prices kept the project from advancing at a faster pace.

“Having a fully permitted mining license and existing infrastructure makes Honeymoon one of the few uranium projects worldwide positioned [to] participate in the early stages of a new bull market,” Craib said.

The Australian miner has plans to perform exploration programs throughout the calendar year at 10 zones within the Honeymoon area. In addition to the exploratory work, Boss is also in phase two of a three-phase restart program at Honeymoon aimed at getting the project into production.

Shares of Boss were down 1.85 percent on Monday (March 25), trading at AU$0.05.

Graphite Metallurgical Test Work Update

Highlights:

  • Bulk sample of Springdale graphite concentrate estimated to be completed in Q2 2021.
  • Concentrate material will then be sent to Germany to test its amenability for the production of battery anode material suitable for use in EVs.
  • Final test results expected in Q3 2021.

Comet Resources Ltd (ASX:CRL) is pleased provide an update on ongoing test work on natural flake graphite from its Springdale Graphite Project (Springdale) located in Western Australia. Both excellent grade and recoveries were achieved on initial tests, leading to commencement of work to produce a bulk sample for further testing. Importantly, the graphite concentrates previously produced demonstrated a unique and potentially very valuable characteristic in its small size distribution, with two-thirds of the product passing the 38 µm size fraction screen. Generally, this small size fraction of graphite is a by-product of processing of larger flake fractions, which produces smaller size graphite, but in doing so also damages the smaller flake material in the process, reducing their performance and value. Deposits that contain high quality ultra-fine graphite are uncommon and are potentially suitable for supplying the expanding battery anode market, which continues to grow as the sales of electric vehicles (EVs) increase. Graphite suitable for battery anode production also achieves premium pricing in graphite markets, making it a highly sought-after product.

Medallion Completes Diagnostic Testing with Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization

Medallion Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: MDL; OTCQB: MLLOF; Frankfurt: MRDN) “Medallion” or the “Company”) announces completion of a suite of diagnostic test work at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO) in Sydney, to extract rare earth elements (REE) from mineral sand monazite. The monazite was sourced from an Australian mineral sand mine. Discussion is ongoing with additional prospective suppliers.

Mineral sand monazite is an abundant REE-rich feedstock, that can be accessed as a by-product from global mineral-sand mines that target zirconium and titanium, without the need for additional mining. Medallion’s business model is centered on the Medallion Monazite Process , a transferable and scalable technology designed to accept multiple mineral-sand monazite feedstocks and extract high-value REEs with high efficiency, high recovery and zero liquid waste.
