Stellar Confirms Early Tin Production

Australian tin company Stellar Resources has announced the results from the maiden exploration target for the Razorback mine with the potential for early production. 

Australian tin company Stellar Resources (ASX:SRZ) has announced the results from the maiden exploration target for the Razorback mine with the potential for early production.

As quoted from the press release:

Highlights

• The Razorback Mine was operated as an open pit mine by Minops from 1975 to 1978 during which time an estimated 180,000 tonnes of ore at ~0.6% Sn was mined and processed by an on-site gravity plant and tailings facility.

• An Exploration Target for remaining material at the Razorback Mine of 180,000 – 220,000 tonnes @ 0.8 – 1.0 percent Sn has been defined to a depth of 100m below the pit floor. It should be noted that this Exploration Target estimate is conceptual in nature. There has been insufficient exploration to define a Mineral Resource in this volume and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the determination of a Mineral Resource.

• The Razorback Mine Exploration Target is based on; 35 historic surface drillholes (6,054m) completed between 1958 and 1982, underground exploration development and a further 22 underground drillholes (1,009m) completed between 1964 and 1966, and samples from 3 costeans dug into the pit floor by Stellar in 2018.

• Further validation of historical drilling and mine data will be undertaken with the aim of defining an Inferred Mineral Resource for Razorback Mine in H2 2019.

• Re-development of the Razorback Mine could potentially provide a source of early tin production and cashflow which Stellar plans to study further, after the Mineral Resource is defined.

Managing Director Peter Blight said “redevelopment of the Razorback mine has the potential to become an early source of tin production which the company plans to study further this year. This could become an important ‘stepping-stone’ for Stellar, with the potential cash flow from the Razorback mine redevelopment being used to advance the company’s flagship Heemskirk tin project.”

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.
