TNG Gets Mineral Leases for Mount Peake Vanadium Asset

TNG has been granted the mineral leases that cover its Mount Peake vanadium-titanium-iron project’s mine site and infrastructure.

TNG (ASX:TNG) has received another green light for its Mount Peake vanadium-titanium-iron project in Australia with the granting of mine site and infrastructure mineral leases.

Bestowed upon the company by Ken Vowles, the Northern Territory’s minister for primary industry and resources, the four leases allow TNG to move forward with financing for Mount Peake’s development.

“TNG’s new mine will create new, direct jobs for Territorians, as well as create flow-on effects for Territory business by providing opportunities for new contracts and new tenders,” Vowles said in a statement.

He added, “[t]he progress in the development of this new mine shows the Territory is a great place to invest, to work, and to do business.”

Prior to receiving these leases, TNG had gathered environmental approvals for the project from both the Northern Territory’s state government and Australia’s federal government earlier this year.

“We are rapidly ticking off the boxes towards the Mount Peake development, with key announcements over the past few months including the signing of a Native Title Agreement, the signing of a binding term sheet for titanium off-take with Swiss commodity trader DKSH and now the formal award of the Mount Peake mineral leases by the NT government.”

“With these important milestones now complete, we will be squarely focused on moving ahead with project financing negotiations,” he continued.

In September, TNG received a AU$10-million investment from Vimson Group subsidiary V.M. Salgaocar & Bro. through a binding subscription agreement to help progress Mount Peake. In return, Vimson will acquire a 10.36-percent interest in TNG through two tranches of share acquisition.

Going forward, TNG is expecting to begin construction on Mount Peake next year, kicking off a two-year construction period; subject to approvals, the company plans to begin constructing a refinery in 2020.

The mine is set to have a 17-year lifespan, and has the potential to create 500 jobs during construction and 175 to 200 ongoing positions during operation.

TNG shares were down 4.76 percent at the end of trading on the ASX on Wednesday (November 21), closing the day at AU$0.10.

Rare Earth Elements Demand is Still Growing

Rare Earth Elements are 17 silvery-white heavy metals with special magnetic capabilities. REEs have diverse applications and are commonly used in lasers, glass, superconductors, hard drives, wind turbine generators, and magnetic materials. Despite the name, REEs are abundant in the world, often found underground alongside uranium in sand structures called monazite. REEs concentrate must first be separated from the sand. Neodymium and praseodymium (NdPr) represent about 80% of the value of REE concentrate. Demand for these elements is growing because of their use in electric vehicles, wind turbines, and appliances. Adams Intelligence expects the demand for NdPr to double in the next five years. Removing REEs from monazite and then separating REEs into individual components is a complicated process.
