Kasbah Publishes DFS for Achmmach Tin Project

Australian tin miner Kasbah has announced the completion and results of a definitive feasibility study conducted at the company’s Achmmach tin project in Morocco.

Australian tin miner Kasbah Resources (ASX:KAS) has announced the completion and results of a definitive feasibility study conducted at the company’s Achmmach tin project in Morocco.

The positive DFS includes a 7 percent increase in ore reserves and a 4 percent increase in contained tin. The company plans to commence construction at the site in 2019, with production following closely behind in 2020.

The project includes a proposed underground mine with an initial 10-year life of mine. The projected production at the site is 750,000 tonnes of ore per annum at an average head grade of 0.82 percent tin.

“The 2018 DFS follows on from a number of previous studies and whilst it incorporates elements of those studies, our ability to successfully utilize ore sorting and HPGR technology in a new processing flow sheet has delivered a significant positive impact on Project capital and operating costs as well as tin recovery,” Russell Clark, Kasbah’s chief executive said in a press release.

“This, in conjunction with a strong prevailing tin price, which is predicted by the International Tin Association to be sustained or improve in the future, has resulted in this very positive DFS outcome,” he added.

Kasbah owns 75 percent of the Achmmach tin project located in Morocco, with venture partners Toyota Tsusho (TSE:8015) owning 20 percent and Nittetsu Mining (TSE:1515) owning the remaining 5 percent.

Using the data collected in the 2018 study, Kasbah has upgraded the ore reserve estimate to 7 million tonnes at 82 percent, for 58,000 tonnes of contained tin. This new estimate increases the contained tin to 2,000 tonnes from the previous ore reserve reported in 2016.

“We are delighted with the new ore reserve estimate,” said Clark in an additional company announcement. “The new and upgraded ore reserve was based on the improved cost base and revised mine plan for the Achmmach project also included in the 2018 DFS.”

There will also be an on-site processing plant for ore sorting with cutting-edge high pressure grinding rolls (HPGR) technology, to produce approximately 4,500 tonnes of tin per annum at a 60 percent tin concentrate.

The financials generated in the DFS are also very promising, noting a post-tax net present value of US$98.1 million with a 23 percent internal rate of return using a US$21,000 per tonne tin price.

“In addition, the Achmmach tin deposit remains open at depth and along strike, and we see terrific potential for further near mine exploration success to deliver additional resources and ore reserves,” added Clark.

Kasbah has been exploring the site since 2008, and has previously commissioned studies in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Kasbah stock remained flat on Monday (July 17), closing at AU$0.014.

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.
