Bass Metals Ltd completes transition from graphite developer to producer http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/165553/bass-metals-ltd-completes-transition-from-graphite-developer-to-producer-70593.html Bass Metals Ltd’s (ASX:BSM) shares have surged after completing the transition from graphite developer to graphite producer by taking operational control of the Graphmada Graphite Mine in Madagascar.

The acquisition of the mine from Stratmin Global Resources (LON:STGR),  leaves Bass Metals the only company listed on the ASX currently producing and selling graphite concentrates.

The consideration for the transaction includes a payment of $1.5 million and the issue of Bass shares worth $750,000 at $0.01 per share.

Stratmin will also be entitled to a net smelter royalty of 2.5% capped at $5 million and up to $8 million worth of Bass shares on achieving production milestones.

$16 million of capital has already been spent to develop the mine, which hosts four known deposits with mining permit locked in for 40+ years.

The mine is already selling high purity, large flake product into India, Europe and the U.S., with potential exposure to lithium-ion battery demand.

Graphmada sold circa 1,500 product tonnes in the 2015 calendar year, with a high proportion of the product being large flake graphite at 94% or greater purity.

The current production is from a 6,000 product tonnes per annum processing plant installed on site, with a plan to substantially increase production.

Bass Metals is carrying out a major overhaul and plant refurbishment program, focusing on raising the quality and volume of the saleable product.

The company is in the process of raising up to $5.52 million from a fully underwritten non-renounceable rights issue to shareholders.

Bass will become the first Australian graphite producer with a revenue stream after completing the acquisition of the Graphmada Large Flake Graphite Mine from Stratmin Global Resources (LON:STGR).

$16 million of capital has already been spent to develop the mine, which hosts four known deposits with mining permit locked in for 40+ years.

Importantly, the mine is selling high purity, large flake product into India, Europe and the U.S., with potential exposure to lithium-ion battery demand.

The current production is from a 6,000 product tonne per annum processing plant installed on site, with a plan to substantially increase production.

There is significant development potential to grow the operations, both near-mine and regionally, with mineralisation open to depth and along strike, across the four known deposits.

The consideration for the mine will include a payment of $1.5 million and the issue of $750,000 worth of Bass shares at $0.01 each.

Stratmin will also be entitled to a net smelter royalty of 2.5% capped at $5 million and up to $8 million worth of Bass shares on achieving production milestones.

Unlike 99% of its peers, the acquisition would provide Bass Metals with control of an operating graphite mine that is generating cash flow and has a sustainable offtake agreement in place with a US based partner.

The consideration for the mine will include a payment of $1,500,000 and the issue of $750,000 worth of Bass shares at $0.01 each.

Stratmin will also be entitled to a net smelter royalty of 2.5% capped at $5 million and up to $8 million worth of Bass shares on achieving production milestones.

The Graphmada mine hosts four known deposits with the Loharano deposit being currently mined.

Significantly, a 6,000 product tonne per annum processing plant is installed on site, with drying and packaging facilities.

Bass Metals will execute a low capital expansion plan to increase production and cash flow from the mine.

Meanwhile, the company will look to divest its Tasmanian zinc-lead assets.

The share price has been on an bull run since June 2015, climbing 266%.

Energia Minerals Ltd estimates mineral bounty at Gorno Zinc Project http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/135623/energia-minerals-ltd-estimates-mineral-bounty-at-gorno-zinc-project-67559.html Energia Minerals Limited (ASX:EMX) has reported indicated and inferred resources of zinc, lead and silver at the Colonna Zorzone Zinc Deposit within its 100%-owned Gorno Zinc Project in Northern Italy.

The Maiden Resource Estimate calculated by Jorvik Resources Pty Ltd follows a successful underground diamond drilling program over the last eight months.

Total indicated and inferred resources calculated by Jorvik Resources is 3.87 million tonnes grading 6.1% zinc, 1.6% lead and 25 grams per tonne silver. This would yield 238,000 tonnes of contained zinc, 63,000 tonnes of contained lead and 3.1 million ounces of contained silver.

The Gorno Zinc Project is an Alpine style Zinc-Lead-Silver deposit, yielding high-grade Mississippi Valley Type zinc.

Energia Minerals have also generated a new exploration target of 7-10 million tonnes of Zinc and Lead at the Gorno Zinc Project.

Zinc prices have risen sharply during the first few months of 2016 and Energia Minerals is aiming to fast-track development of Colonna Zorzone to leverage the tightening zinc supplies.

Project viability will be enhanced due to the high estimated silver content.

The Maiden Resource Estimate paves way for the next phase of evaluation of the Zorzone Deposit, which includes a scoping study to be completed by the end of this month.

Connemara Mining highlights reinvigoration of Irish mining scene http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/stocktube/8352 Mining Capital's Alastair Ford says it's early days for Patrick Cullen at Connemara Mining PLC (LON:CON) but he's a man with a plan and is keen to get things moving.

''If you look at the Connemara share price graph over the past two months I don't think there's any argument that he has managed to get things moving'', Ford says.

''Shares have more than doubled and it looks like there's still some significant momentum behind it''.

BMR Mining boss on Kabwe lead and zinc plans http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/stocktube/4480 Alex Borrelli, chief executive of BMR Mining (LON:BMR), discusses the company’s plans to generate revenue by extracting lead and zinc from the vast tailings deposits at the Kabwe mine in Zambia.

Kabwe was discovered at the turn of the 20th century but officially closed down in 1994 due to its operations becoming uneconomic at that time.

Now BMR is developing a pilot plant for its Kabwe lead and zinc project in Zambia that will be able to process a minimum of five tons of tailings or waste rock an hour - cleaning up the environment and providing employment in the process.

ZincOx chief talks through plans for KRP http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/ceo_focus/3953 The chief executive of ZincOx (LON:ZOX), Andrew Woollett, discusses the next steps at the company’s Korean Recyling Plant. 

ZincOx produces zinc concentrate from EAFD (electric arc furnace dust), is planning to replace the often troublesome heat exchangers at its KRP facility.

This should dramatically enhance the economics of its production process.

Today the company said it has conditionally raised in the region of £2.1mln through a placing of 16.1mln shares at 13p a throw.

ZincOx Resources chief executive says 2014 was "turnaround year" http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/stocktube/3217 Andrew Woollett, chief executive of ZincOx Resources (LON:ZOX), said it had been a "very long and rocky" road getting its ground-breaking recycling plant up to full capacity but that 2014 had really been a "turnaround" year for the company.

Technical issues surrounding the heat exchangers have now been resolved, and in the last seven months there have only been two months that did not make a positive contribution to EBITDA, he said. Looking ahead, the focus is on optimising the Korean plant's performance  and on potential new projects.

ZincOx 'ramping back-up' with an eye on full production http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/stocktube/2013 Andrew Woollett, CEO of ZincOx (LON:ZOX), tells Proactiveinvestors that after a frustrating period the company is now working towards full production. Andrew explains that there were two issues; the first was with the heat-exchangers, which has been resolved, while the second was blockages on the hearth. That, he says, is more difficult, but there are now systems in place to highlight the problem before it occurs and correcting it can be done without any downtime.
