Kasbah Moves Achmmach Tin Deposit Closer to Development

Earlier this week the company released the latest DFS for the site which pegged the contained tin estimate at 58,000 tonnes. 

Kasbah Resources (ASX:KAS) reports it will proceed with securing funding and developing Achmmach after the latest feasibility study into the project showed improved economics.

Australian based Kasbah is the 75 percent owner of the Achmmach tin project, located in Morocco. Earlier this week the company released the latest DFS for the site which pegged the contained tin estimate at 58,000 tonnes.

As quoted from the press release:

The feasibility study is the fourth such study into Achmmach but finally shows a project that should be capable of development.

The study shows that Achmmach can be developed at a capital cost of $US96.4 million ($129.9m) and generate an internal rate of return of around 23 percent.

The mine’s forecast all-in sustaining costs are expected to be $US11,435 a tonne of tin, well below current tin prices of around $US20,000 a tonne.

Achmmach is one of the few advanced tin projects in the world but has had a tortured path towards development.

Previous studies in 2014, 2015 and 2016 hinted at its potential but were not sufficiently attractive to progress the project. Kasbah was also at the centre of a protracted corporate drama in late 2016 and early 2017 when it was the subject of a proposed, but ultimately aborted, merger with Canada’s Asian Mineral Resources (TSXV:ASN).

It has since had a sweeping overhaul of its board, with veteran executive Russell Clark installed as chief executive just under a year ago. The economics of Achmmach have improved under the latest study due to the addition of ore-sorting and new grinding technology.

Tin is one of the metals most leveraged to growth in new technologies. A recent study by MIT found that tin would be the metal most impacted by the rise of electric vehicles, advanced robotics, renewable energy and advanced computing, outstripping even lithium and cobalt.

The price of tin has climbed around 60 percent over the past two years amid a sharp decline in global tin stockpiles. There is currently around four weeks worth of tin demand sitting in warehouses around the world.

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.
