The Canadian company elected to start again because they wish to double the amount of ore BHP was approved to process. A development proposal is in the works for June The project holds approximately 63, tonnes of U3O8 with an average grade of approximately 0. Annual production estimate was reduced to 3,t after concerns with production issues.
Some examples of these since are as follows: In most cases, uranium potential was present in sediments, either calcrete or carbonaceous sequences. The valuation was based on company reports and publicly available reports from the open file system. The valuation did not need to be Valmin Code compliant but this code was nevertheless followed as far as possible as a matter of best practice.
KENYA Duringin country research and field investigations were conducted in Kenya for Oropa Exploration Limited with Yeelirrie uranium tenements aim of selecting ground for uranium exploration.
A number of prospective areas were identified but sovereign risk issues emerged which led to a downgrading of investment interest. The main elements of interest were non ferrous metals but the deposit also contained significant uranium.
Mineralisation occurs in a thin flat lying carbonaceous shale in a Lower Palaeozoic unit overlying Proterozoic rocks. MALAWI Following a countrywide review of airborne radiometric data inthree areas were identified for uranium exploration.
Initially, remote sensing data were interpreted for each exploration area with the aim of selecting prioritized target areas for a variety of uranium deposit types based on geological setting.
Ground exploration followed utilizing geochemical and ground geophysical methods to confirm areas of uranium anomalism. Apart from technical support related to area selection, programme design and programme implementation, the services provided to Oropa Exploration Limited included liaison with central and local government agencies, assistance in setting up of an exploration base in Malawi, recruitment of personnel and the preparation of technical reports for use in submissions to the authorities in Malawi and to the ASX.
The project involved search for unconformity-related, intrusive and metasomatic uranium deposits. The Report covered significant tenement holdings in the Northern Territory.
Four of the areas were appraised for their uranium exploration potential. The deposit type is uranium in calcrete. The appraisal was based on a site visit, old exploration reports and publicly available data on ground water compositions.• Uranium mineralisation identified at Paroo Range medium to high grade Yeelirrie deposit • Tenements backed by the most significant scientific uranium study for decades • Project has already made significant advances • Success at Paroo Range project.
news; Ignored uranium miners worth a look. EVERY so often, it's worth just taking a moment to think about companies that seem to have made great progress but get scant attention in the media.
Venture Minerals has a strong management team, experienced in the identification, definition, and development of numerous gold and base metals deposits in Australia and overseas.
Several other uranium mining companies are buying up tenements close to Yeelirrie in the hope of finding uranium seams off the main Yeelirrie deposit – including Blaze International Ltd.
The project is currently on hold, the Greens will continue to oppose any uranium development in WA. Yeelirrie (/) These deposits are approximately 3-km apart & are listed separately as they fall under tenements of Toro Energy Ltd.
& Australian Vanadium Ltd., respectively. The waters in the tributary hosting the Yeelirrie deposit are enriched in uranium (samples NY and NY;. Yeelirrie, acquired from BHP Billiton in , has a resource of million pounds of uranium oxide.
State Development Minister Bill Marmion said uranium was an important industry for WA. "Clearly, this project has the potential to deliver significant economic benefits to the state should it proceed," he said.
