Novo Resources Corp. (“ Novo ” or the “ Company ”) (TSX: NVO & NVO.WT; OTCQX: NSRPF) is providing an update on the previously announced sale (the “ Transaction ”) of a portion of its Blue Spec project comprising mining leases 46115 and 46244 and related mining information (the “ Subject Blue Spec Tenements ”) in Western Australia to ASX-listed Calidus Resources Limited (“ Calidus ”) ( please see the Company’s news releases dated September 21, 2020 November 25, 2020 and February 1, 2021 for further details ).

Calidus has paid AUD $7.7 million to the Company to date. The Company and Calidus have executed a letter deed (the “ Deed ”) and agreed to a path to completion of the Transaction for the originally agreed consideration of AUD $19.5 million as follows:

  • Calidus will make a cash payment totaling AUD $5 million to the Company by March 31, 2021;
  • Calidus will issue 13,333,333 ordinary shares to Novo by April 16, 2021; and
  • Calidus will transfer a 100% interest in prospecting license 45/3065, adjacent to the Company’s Talga Talga project in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia, to the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Beatons Creek Gold Pty Ltd.

The Transaction is still subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent including the execution of various deeds of assignment between the Company, Calidus, and relevant third parties, and customary regulatory approvals for transactions of this nature.

“The conclusion of the sale of a portion of the Blue Spec project helps both Calidus and Novo align their production goals in the region,” commented Quinton Hennigh, Chairman and President of Novo Resources. “Calidus has plans to conduct underground mining and develop a milling circuit for sulfide ores making the high-grade Blue Spec resource compatible with their production model. Novo retains areas of shallow oxide prospectivity around Blue Spec and secures land at Talga Talga that potentially hosts down dip continuations of the gold system there.”

Novo is advancing its flagship Beatons Creek gold project to production while exploring and developing its highly prospective land package covering approximately 14,000 square kilometres in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. In addition to the Company’s primary focus, Novo seeks to leverage its internal geological expertise to deliver value-accretive opportunities to its shareholders.

Graphite Metallurgical Test Work Update


  • 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.
