Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Torian Resources Limited (ASX:TNR) is pleased to advise that via its wholly owned subsidiary Tarmoola Holdings Pty Ltd (THP) it has entered into an exclusive option agreement to purchase the 172,662Ha (424,748 Acre) Tarmoola Station.

The majority of Torian’s Mt Stirling Gold Project including the Mt Stirling, Stirling Well, numerous historical Au workings, and much of the Diorite prospects and historical mines and workings, falls within the bounds of Tarmoola Station. Approximately 50% of the pastoral lease is covered by mining / exploration leases, with the station hosting numerous operating and abandoned mines including Red 5 Ltd’s KOTH Operation; Round Oak Minerals Jaguar Project and the operating Bentley underground mine.

The station currently contains a 20-person camp with approvals in place as well as infrastructure already built to expand to a 50-person accommodation facility. The Pastoral Lease also includes the 10 Mile Outcamp accommodation facility, in the NE of the property, and is serviced by the Goldfields Highway and a myriad of pastoral access tracks, including the Agnew and Darlot access roads. The station is neighboured by Nambi Station – leased by Glencore Mining, and Melrose Station leased by Red 5 Ltd.

Since 2018 the owners have invested in excess of $1,000,000 in infrastructure upgrades across the Station including maintaining and upgrading 34 automated solar powered wells out of 42 existing wells that draw from the abundant water resource of the Tarmoola Aquifer.

In addition to the pastoral lease and camp, the station agreement includes a number of revenue generating assets, including approximately 700 head of cattle, a continuous $360,000 per annum of carbon credits and a mining services business “Carhill Contracting” which is cash flow positive and includes plant and machinery assets valued at approximately $700,000. In the last 12 months Carhill Contracting’s customers have included Red 5 (ASX:RED), St Barbara Ltd (ASX:SBM), Round Oak Mining (ASX:SOL) amongst other regional explorers.

The revenue earned from carbon credits is as a result of the delivery and sale of Australian Carbon Credit Units ascribed to the Pastoral Station pursuant to the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011 (Cth).

As part of this option agreement, the current Station Manager has agreed to stay on for at least 12 months post settlement to provide stability during this transition. Torian Resources envisages a long and mutually benefiting business model whereby Pastoral interests can co-exist with the mineral wealth of the region and its rich pioneering history.

As the agreement includes a number of cash flow positive businesses, Torian believes it can fund the bulk of the purchase through debt finance, thereby limiting any potential shareholder dilution.

Torian Executive Director Mr Peretz Schapiro said, “The option to purchase the Tarmoola station is a crucial step towards fast-tracking the exploration of and potential mining production at the Mt Stirling Gold Project. As owners of the pastoral lease, obtaining permits for exploration and / or mining becomes a much more seamless process. Further, owning the earthworks equipment, accommodation camp, and associated infrastructure will help drastically reduce our per ounce discovery cost.

There are substantial access benefits by holding pastoral leases. Owning and controlling the pastoral lease on which the majority of our flagship project lies, in addition to the accommodation facilities and earth moving equipment, gives us enormous flexibility when it comes to our future exploration plans, as we continue to put runs on the board, prove up and expand on multiple targets and deposits to deliver JORC resources in the region.

We are now deep into our drilling campaign at our Mt Stirling Gold Project, with 11,750m drilled Q4 2020 and are very encouraged by the results received thus far. We are looking forward to further drilling results in the coming weeks which will all feed into an interim JORC resource to be delivered in Q1 2021.

We look forward to keeping the market updated on our progress.”

About Tarmoola Station

Tarmoola Station is a pastoral lease located about 25 kilometres north west of Leonora and 100 kilometres south of Leinster in the Goldfields of Western Australia. The western boundary of Tarmoola adjoins Sturt Meadows Station.

The property was established on land that was previously owned by the Leonora Pastoral Company but had remained largely undeveloped. Reuben McBride inspected the area and took up a lease over approximately 500,000 acres in 1923. Together with W. G. Hawkes, McBride formed the Tarmoola Pastoral Company in 1924 and embarked on an improvement program.

Shortly afterward some 240,000 acres was fenced and several bores sunk.

Rio Tinto and ARENA to study using hydrogen to reduce carbon emissions in alumina refining

Rio Tinto has partnered with the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to study whether hydrogen can replace natural gas in alumina refineries to reduce emissions.

Rio Tinto will conduct a $1.2 million feasibility study, equally funded with ARENA through a $580,000 grant, into using clean hydrogen to replace natural gas in the calcination process of refining at the Yarwun aumina refinery in Gladstone.

Australia’s 5 Most Valuable Mineral Exports

Australia’s economy is largely based on its natural resources, with the minerals sector making the greatest contribution to the nation’s exports.

Four of Australia’s states and territories rank in the top 20 mining jurisdictions in the world, according to the Fraser Institute’s latest annual survey of mining companies: Western Australia (fourth), Southern Australia (seventh), Queensland (16th) and the Northern Territory (19th).

These mining jurisdictions demonstrate a high level of investment attractiveness mainly due to their mineral-rich geology, solid infrastructure, stellar economic environment and government support for the resources industry at both the federal and state level.

Newcrest Mining Limited – Exploration Update 10 June 2021

Highlights

  • At Red Chris, drilling continues to expand the higher grade mineralisation intersected at East Ridge and in the Main Zone:
    • At East Ridge, the new discovery adjacent to the East Zone, drilling continues to expand the footprint of the higher grade mineralisation with RC688 returning 344m @ 0.70g/t Au & 0.75% Cu from 776m, incl. 170m @ 1.1g/t Au & 1.1% Cu from 892m. This hole is 100m east of the discovery hole RC678 (previously reported).
    • East Ridge is located 300m east of East Zone and outside of Newcrest's Red Chris Mineral Resource Estimate. Drilling to define the extent of the higher grade mineralisation is ongoing.
    • In the Main Zone, drilling has intersected high grade mineralisation with RC683 returning 300m @ 0.41g/t Au & 0.51% Cu from 260m, incl. 114m @ 0.67g/t Au & 0.85% Cu from 390m, incl. 22m @ 1.1g/t Au & 1.4% Cu from 464m. This hole is 100m east of RC679 (previously reported).
