Anglesey Mining positive on Parys Mountain metals outlook

The company is looking to advance Parys Mountain in a planned and sequential manner.
It is positive about copper and zinc outlook

Anglesey Mining plc (LON:AYM) told investors that maintains a positive outlook for base metals, particularly zinc and copper, despite what it describes as “the current geopolitical uncertainty caused by fears of trade wars and tariffs”.

In the company, in its interim results statement, said: “We remain confident that demand for metals will remain strong and the outlook for commodity prices will remain positive for the foreseeable future.

“There will be occasional pressures on price by external geopolitical forces but the underlying growth of the emerging industrialised nations particularly China will support demand growth in the longer term.”

Given the company’s upbeat outlook, it is looking to advance its Parys Mountain project, in North Wales, in a planned and sequential manner.

Earlier this week, the company entered into an agreement with QME Mining Technical Services for an agreed programme of design, engineering and optimisation studies with the intention of assessing the future development of Parys Mountain.

Over the period to the end of June 2019, QME will carry out a detailed review of the various development and mining alternatives for Parys Mountain.

The primary objective is to determine the optimum production plan for Parys Mountain, utilising all available and potential means of accessing both the indicated resources and inferred resources, at various cut-off grades.

"We consider this to be a very important and positive step forward in the development of the Parys Mountain mine,” Anglesey chief executive Bill Hooley said on Monday.

In Friday’s statement, meanwhile, the company noted its intention to continue the review of commercial and development opportunities for its iron ore interests and to seek other new opportunities.

The financial results themselves revealed a £137,117 loss for the six month period.
