The AIM-listed miner said the application, lodged with the Botswana Department of Environment Affairs (DEA), would cover drilling around a circa 697 square kilometre area.

Metal Tiger added that the EMP would allow the drilling of new and existing strike targets identified along a 140 kilometre long strike of the Central Structural Corridor.

An additional airborne electromagnetic (EM) geophysics survey covering 939 square kilometres is also planned to commence at the site in mid-2018, to link up with previous EM trail survey blocks over the centre of the T20 Dome.

The news comes following the approval of an EMP at the group’s T3 Dome complex on 3 April 2018, which expanded the drilling area available there to 680 square kilometres.

Michael McNeilly, chief executive of Metal Tiger, commented: “The submission of the EMP for the T20 Dome will, where awarded, provide access to important strategic ground for the JV and open up an additional 697km2 of under explored and prospective Kalahari copper belt for drilling.

He added: “Opening the T20 Dome for drilling will allow the possibility of adding to a pipeline of confirmed copper targets whilst we move the T3 Resource through the mine feasibility study process. With the recently awarded T3 Dome EMP, drilling is planned to commence at the T3 Dome in May, and we look forward to the prospect of exciting drill intersections.”

Metal Tiger shares were steady at 1.98p in early trading Monday.

<![CDATA[RNS press release - Botswana Copper/Silver Project EMP Submitted for Drilling T20 Dome ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/rns/10669/BWIPREM_20180415005141/ Mon, 16 Apr 2018 07:00:00 +0100 http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/rns/10669/BWIPREM_20180415005141/ <![CDATA[News - Metal Tiger retains focus on Kalahari copper belt amidst rapid activity ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/194971/metal-tiger-retains-focus-on-kalahari-copper-belt-amidst-rapid-activity-194971.html The fact that it seemingly never stops moving means it can be difficult to pin down what is going on at Metal Tiger PLC (LON:MTR).

However, throughout the last few months there has been one consistent story, that of its T3 copper and now silver project in Botswana.

READ: Botswana grants permission for drilling on 680 square kilometre T3 Dome area jointly owned by Metal Tiger and MOD Resources

The deposit, in which Metal Tiger holds a 30% stake, is a joint venture with Australian miner MOD Resources Ltd (ASX:MOD) and sits in the Kalahari copper belt that extends from northern Botswana into Namibia.

A Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) Base Case in January for the T3 Open Pit indicated an estimated US$730mln of underlying earnings (EBITDA) over 9 years, which rises to US$1.1bn over 12 years.

The PFS also indicated a net pre-tax cashflow of US$530mln, inclusive of development capital, annual free cash flow of US$77mln before tax from the start of production and a payback from production start of 2.7 years.

In its conclusion, the PFS stated that T3 offers “a low-risk, low capital pathway to copper production supported by improving confidence in the long-term consensus copper price”.

Michael McNeilly, Metal Tiger’s chief executive said: “The fact that the JV has taken from discovery to a very robust PFS in little more than twenty-two months is tantamount to the level of work and commitment all the stakeholders have put in to the project.

Next steps at T3

A fuller feasibility study is next for the project, with drill targets around the T3 Dome including an initial 10 high priority untested Airborne Electromagnetic geophysics anomalies that are thought to be related to lithological formation conductors.

The project has also received approval for its Environmental Management Plan from the Botswanan government, expanding the available drilling area within the T3 Dome to around 680 square kilometres.

At the same time, it added that a major regional exploration programme is also underway focussing on targets outside the T3 area – testing areas such as the ‘T3 Dome’, ‘T20 Dome’ and ‘T Rex’ targets.

The plan is to replicate the approach taken in the discovery of the T3 Open Pit area such as soil sampling, geophysics & drill testing.

Metal Tiger’s stake in T3 is held both directly through the joint venture and indirectly through a holding in MOD, where the size of the stake has recently risen to a little over 6%, worth around A$6.1mln (£3.34mln). 

Kingsgate

T3‘s importance to the group has grown after its plans for Kingsgate were rejected by the Aussie group’s shareholders.

In January, the group sold its remaining shares in Kingsgate raising A$3.4mln in the process.

Thailand on hold

The firm has also shelved plans for an initial public offering of its Thai joint venture at the Song Toh and Boh Yai mines, citing uncertainty over development plans.

Asset trading

In addition to its direct investments, the company also has an asset trading division. In February the company acquired a 4.23% stake, worth around £127,746, in Connemara Mining Company PLC (LON:CON) in a private placing.

Metal Tiger also has an almost 11% stake, worth around £1.6mln, in Thor Mining PLC (LON:THR), with chief executive Michael McNeilly saying: “We like tungsten as a play…they’ve got an excellent team there”.

As of 13 April 2018, Metal Tiger is worth £21.63mln.

The T3 Dome EMP is subject to a four-week public review period, and accordingly drilling is planned to commence in May 2018.

READ: Metal Tiger’s Botswana joint venture delivers further positive drill results

T3 Dome EMP will increase the area available for drilling within the T3 Dome to around 680 square kilometres.

Drill targets will include an initial 10 high priority untested T3 Dome Airborne Electromagnetic (EM) geophysics anomalies thought to be related to lithological formation conductors.

“These high priority target anomalies represent an opportunity for the discovery of additional satellite copper deposits which could augment or supplement the potential offered by developing the T3 Open Pit Resource and its potential underground extensions,” said Michael McNeilly, chief executive of Metal Tiger. 

“We look forward to the prospect of an exciting stream of regional drill results whilst the JV continues to progress the T3 Feasibility Study works.”

Among the latest intersections from T3 were 17.9 metres at 2% copper and 46 grams per tonne silver, 3 metres at 1.3% copper and 10 grams silver, and 16 metres at 1.3% copper and 22 grams silver.

Results from a further 34 diamond drill holes are pending but once they are in, Metal Tiger expects that an updated resource can be compiled by early June.

The results will also feed into the feasibility study to help increase confidence in the T3 Expansion Case model which assumes an ore processing rate of 2.5mln tonnes per year for around three years, before a ramp up to 4mln tonnes for a further eight years.

It comes as the company expects a delay to the possible approval of the ‘master plan’ related to the joint venture’s Song Toh and Boh Yai lead-zinc mine projects.

The company, in a statement, said that following talks with representatives of the Thai Department of Primary Industries and Mines (DPIM), it believes the plan won’t be considered until March - albeit, it added that there’s no guarantee on any exact timing or approval for the projects.

READ: Metal Tiger reports 'significant step' towards IPO of Thai mining joint venture

Metal Tiger explained that it is prudent to postpone the IPO, due to the uncertainty over the plan and/or the potential designation of the Song Toh and Boh Yai deposit areas for mining.

At the same time, the company has undertaken an operational review of the venture and has put in place what is described as a “substantial cost cutting program” and has halted all capital intensive programmes for the project.

“Internal DPIM guidance on holding public hearings is expected to be published following the Master Plan being approved,” Metal Tiger said in a statement.

“Holding this public hearing is the first step in the permitting process and is a key condition precedent for any IPO.

“The company is ready to make its initial submission for the permitting process for the two lead-zinc-silver mines upon approval of the Master Plan and completion of the public hearing process. The majority of the work for the Thai IPO has been largely completed and any resumption of work on the IPO would require relatively modest updates.”

The company added: “Metal Tiger has had encouraging preliminary conversations with its JV partner in relation to the terms of the current JV and is seeking an improved deal given the circumstances and the significant work completed to date.

“Any deal would be for minimal consideration, in light of Metal Tiger’s significant contributions to the project to date, and would be conditional on the Master Plan being approved.”

He added: “It Is exciting to report that with the robust PFS results to hand both Metal Tiger and MOD are unified in our commitment to progress the project to the next level, and will be commissioning further studies to upgrade understanding to a Feasibility Study level, with work due to commence this quarter.”

MOD Resources owns 70% of the Botswana joint venture, while Metal Tiger has a 30% stake.

Kingsgate sale

In a separate announcement, Metal Tiger also announced that it has sold its remaining shares in Kingsgate Consolidated Limited, bringing its holding down from 11,504,685 shares in KCN to zero. It said that the gross proceeds from the share sales were circa A$3,464,668 (£1,973,209).

Michael McNeilly, commented: “Metal Tiger has decided to sell out of its entire KCN stake to materially increase the cash balance so that it can focus on its existing investments and assess new investment opportunities.”

The company highlighted that the study, anticipated before the end of January, will assume a 2.5mln tonne per annum base case at T3 and it is intended that drilling will continue through the first half of 2018 to define resources at the project.

At the same time, it added that a major regional exploration programme is also underway focussing on targets outside the T3 area – testing areas such as the ‘T3 Dome’, ‘T20 Dome’ and ‘T Rex’ targets.

The plan is to replicate the approach taken in the discovery of the T3 Open Pit area such as soil sampling, geophysics & drill testing.

“We are pleased to outline the key elements of our comprehensive strategy to test the copper potential of our tenement holdings outside of the immediate T3 Project area,” said Michael McNeilly, Metal Tiger chief executive.

“Given the initial findings of the joint venture’s regional soil and geophysics programmes, and the increased knowledge of the structural controls and mineralisation styles likely linked to the new copper and zinc anomalies, we feel that the continued investment through regional drill testing is likely to yield exciting returns.”

McNeilly added: “Benefiting from the updated knowledge of the distribution and style of copper deposits in this part of the Kalahari Copper Belt, we consider it a strong possibility, that one or more of the regional anomalies, within our extensive tenement package, will turn out to be an as-yet undiscovered T3 style sediment hosted copper deposit.”

Metal Tiger now holds 5.15% of Kingsgate’s shares.

The sale resulted in gross proceeds of A$2,686,029.

“Metal Tiger has taken the prudent decision to de-risk our Kingsgate investment by partially selling down and booking a profit,” said Michael McNeilly, chief executive of Metal Tiger.

“It does not, however, mean we are going away. We still retain more than 5% of Kingsgate and will be watching the board closely to see if they deliver on what they have promised. In the meantime we are turning the bulk of our attention to our copper/silver joint venture with MOD in Botswana, where a prefeasibility Study on T3 is anticipated shortly.”

The company proposed the replacement of Kingsgate’s management. A total of eight resolutions were voted on, and 34% to 45% of shareholder votes were in Metal Tiger’s favour.

All resolutions put forward by Metal Tiger were unsuccessful but the company described it as a ‘close’ result and said that the outcome has demonstrated “strong support for change” among investors.

It retains an 8.623% shareholding in Kingsgate and the company said it is currently assessing its options with regards to its stake in the Australia-listed miner.

“The close result highlights the fact that many investors supported Metal Tiger’s views,” McNeilly said.

“We presented a clear vision to restore and ultimately deliver value based on the reopening of Chatree, and we are encouraged that so many shareholders recognised this.

“We also note the Government of Thailand said in a recent media release that a properly managed reactivation of Chatree would be mutually beneficial to the mine’s owner and to Thailand.

“The government also said far more can be achieved through amicable negotiations than through arbitration.”

Its partner MOD Resources (ASX:MOD), which has 70% of the project, revealed one hole in the final batch of assays had hit 18 metres (m) at 4.3% copper and 94 g/t (grams per ton) silver from 146m.

Other highlight results were 1.7 metres (m) at a grade of 4.8% copper and 81g/t silver from 175m.

"These wide high-grade copper intercepts bode well for the expected Phase 2 mineral resource upgrade expected later this month and the deeper intersections continue to support the prospect of an underground mining target below the planned T3 Open pit," said Michael McNeilly, chief executive of Metal Tiger.

He added that drilling at the site starts again next week with eight rigs turning as T3 continues to be tested along strike.

The T3 project, discovered in March 2016, lies on the Kalahari Copper Belt in northern Botswana and is part of the MOD/MTR joint venture Botswana Copper/Silver project.

The current phase of drilling started in August last year, with approval granted for both diamond core (DC) and reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the T3 Project and its vicinity, through to December 2018.

Metal Tiger shares advanced 3.33% to 2.325p in London.
