Bass Metals Ltd completes transition from graphite developer to producer http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/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.com.au/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.

An initial JORC Resource and scoping study are both due in the March quarter 2016.

One drill hole returned impressive results of 10.9 metres at 10.0% zinc and lead with assays awaited for further down-plunge and strike extensions.

Based on the results which included 92g/t silver, the metal will become a valuable by-product enhancing Gorno project scoping study economics.

The project is located just one hour drive from Bergamo and two hours from Milan and Gorno is steeped in mining history.

Italian multi-national corporation ENI was preparing to mine the Colonna Zorzone deposit before closing down its worldwide base metal and uranium operations in the early 1980’s.

With good cash reserves, Energia's Gorno project boasts a number of advantages including a granted mining license, good regional and local support, potentially low capital costs given historical operations and no uphill haulage required.
