Mincor Resources (MCR) has received all key Western Australian State Government approvals for its Cassini Nickel Project.
With its Northern Kambalda Operations already fully permitted and no Federal Government approvals required, Mincor is now development-ready for its nickel restart from a regulatory approval standpoint.
Following the recent successful completion of its $30 million placement, Mincor now has the ability to begin early pre-production capital works, with an immediate emphasis on site clearing.
The money will also be used to begin excavation of the box-cut at Cassini – which is planned for the March 2020 quarter.
“The receipt of these approvals caps off a brilliant year for Mincor – during which we secured a commercially attractive nickel offtake and processing agreement with BHP, purchased the Long Nickel Operations from Independence Group and attracted significant institutional support,” Managing Director David Southam said.
“Following our recent $30 million capital raising, we are now at an advanced stage of awarding a key contract for site clearing and the development of the box-cut at Cassini,” he added.
Kambalda is one of the world’s great nickel provinces having produced over 51 million tonnes of ore grading 3.1 per cent nickel for 1.6 million tonnes of nickel metal.
Cassini is the first major high grade nickel sulphide discovery in the Kambalda region for many years.
It has a maiden mineral resource of 550,000 tonnes at 3.4 per cent nickel for 19,000 tonnes of contained nickel and has significant resource upside on several fronts.
High priority extensional drilling is continuing and development studies are well underway.
Mincor has ended the day down a slight 0.83 per cent with shares trading for 60 cents apiece in a $202 million market cap.
