The Proactive CEO Sessions in Sydney and Melbourne next week will feature the pick of the crop from companies focused on a diverse range of materials such as bauxite, lithium, boron, gold, tin and hardwood.
There has been good interest and there are still places available at the Sydney sessions on Tuesday, April 9 and at the Melbourne session the following day, April 10.
Metro Mining Ltd (ASX:MMI), ioneer Ltd (ASX:INR), Yandal Resources Ltd (ASX:YRL), Kangaroo Island Plantation Timbers Ltd (ASX:KPT) and Elementos Limited (ASX:ELT) are on the program for both sessions.
Metro managing director Simon Finnis will explain how the company is transitioning to owner-operator status at the Bauxite Hills project in Far North Queensland.
This comes as the company aims to expand bauxite production by 17% this year to an annual rate of 3.5 million wet metric tonnes.
While delivering its near-term expansion, the company is also progressing well with refreshing the definitive feasibility study (DFS) for the stage II expansion at Bauxite Hills to 6 million tonnes per annum.
ioneer will outline its progress and future plans for the Rhyolite Ridge Lithium-Boron Project in Nevada.
Managing director Bernard Rowe will explain ioneer’s progress on the ongoing DFS and the pilot plant, which is expected to commence operating in late April 2019.
The pilot plant will be built in Vancouver, Canada and the test work forms a key part of the DFS underway. The pilot plant’s main bulk sample run is to be conducted in May 2019.
Yandal Resources is focusing on gold in WA’s golden heartland at a time when the yellow metal is shining brightly supported by strong price.
Managing director Lorry Hughes will update investors on progress at the company’s four WA projects - Ironstone Well, Barwidgee and Mt McClure in the Yandal Greenstone Belt and Gordons near Kalgoorlie.
The company, which listed on the ASX in December 2018, has aced some impressive broad and shallow results at the Flushing Meadows target of the Ironstone Well project.
Drilling is ongoing while new drilling will also be served up at the appropriately named Flinders Park and Rosewall targets as well as at Success at Mt McClure project.
Kangaroo Island Plantation Timbers proposes to develop a hardwood export business based on the company’s plantations on Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia, where it has 15,000 hectares planted of a total landholding of 25,000 hectares.
Managing director John Sargeant will address the CEO Sessions and will talk about the company’s plan to build an export facility at Smith Bay and buying an additional 173-hectare coastal site.
