Eurasia Mining plc

Eurasia Mining plc

Eurasia Mining PLC is an international mineral exploration company, listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM), currently operating in Russia.

Eurasia's stated objective is to explore for platinum group metals (PGMs) and gold through self-funded own exploration targets and joint venture partnerships with strategic operators and local partners. Operations are funded from the company's own equity funds and funded joint venture agreements. Projects are subject to an initial evaluation for viability and once this is established further exploration work is carried out to feasibility study level. It is then the company's intention to either proceed to develop the project to production or partner the project with a suitable operator.

The company maintains an office in London and two offices in Russia where field campaigns are planned and executed.

Eurasia is currently evaluating several gold targets in Eastern Russia and is focused on the following ongoing advanced exploration projects:

Urals Alluvial project — West Kytlim licence

Kola Peninsula — Monchetundra licence

Bashkiria Tailings Project — Semenovsky licence

Eurasia Mining plc Snapshot

Eurasia’s established focus is exploration and development of platinum palladium and gold projects in Russia. Its aim is to deliver value to its shareholders by leveraging the significant experience of its directors and management team to advance our licences and to acquire new projects.

The company continues to advance its two key exploration licences at West Kytlim in the Central Urals and Monchetundra on the Kola Peninsula. At West Kytlim,we await permitting for an enlarged production licence area- meanwhile, ongoing drilling continues to expand and upgrade the resource base.

Eurasia continues to access quality gold projects in Russia and the FSU and maintains an active interest in several non-core, innovative mining solutions including the Kamushanovsky Uranium Project in Kyrgyzstan.



Project Highlights:

Seasonal alluvial Platinum mine under development, work commenced Q3 2016

Mining work contracted to SKRS on the basis of a 70:30 split of gross revenue

C2 State approved Reserves total 2,283 kg raw platinum

Further Resources on the licence to be proven during mining

Urals Geology

The Urals ultramafic rocks (peridotite, pyroxenite and dunite), were formed in an ancient rift zone and later upthrust into the Urals as part of the mountain building collision between the Siberian and European Cratons during the Hercynian Orogeny. Tectonic activity in the Urals extended over a very long geological time frame and included six phases of post-Triassic uplift. Previous mapping of the distribution of high energy sediment accumulations which were formed in association with intense erosion during these uplift phases, indicate the potential for elevated concentrations of platinum within these sediments.

It was the potential for these sequential erosion phases to form separate layers of platinum buried beneath much younger placers that ignited Eurasia’s interest in conducting Urals Platinum Exploration.

Project at a glance:

Recovering gold and silver from 2.9m tonnes of surficial mine waste grading circa 1.2g/t gold  

Preferred processing route is a straightforward column leach without pre-treatment of ore

Building of plant may commence in mid 2018

Project Summary

'Mine Tailing's' or simply 'Tails' refers to the waste generated by beneficiating ores through a processing plant. Material is typically dispensed as a slurry of water, fine grained sand and silt, and unrecovered valuable metals, in this case gold and silver. A number of factors contribute to encouraging economics of reprocessing these deposits:

Vastly reduced mining costs as the material is on surface, free digging, requires limited transport and has already been ground and homogenised

No increase in mine footprint makes permitting process more straightforward

Application of modern metallurgy and re-processing technologies recovers more metal

Less geological risk associated with the resource as grade and volumes are already well established
