    Cobalt Blue Holdings Limited (ASX:COB) (OTCMKTS:CBBHF) has commenced the largest single drilling campaign to date at Thackaringa - in excess of 15,000 metres will be drilled over the coming six months. Previously, between 2H 2016 and 1H 2018, COB has drilled a total of 20,445 metres consisting of 38 Diamond Drill (DD) holes, 93 Reverse Circulation (RC) drill holes, and three RC drill holes with diamond tails over three campaigns.


    - The campaign has commenced with two DD and two RC drill rigs currently working on site; with 755 metres completed to date at Pyrite Hill.

    - In separate negotiations, Essential Water has indicated that 1.2GL per annum of raw water is available for the Thackaringa Cobalt Project. A further 0.3 GL per annum could also be supplied with a minor capital upgrade to Essential Water's trunk main supply network. (The estimated water requirements specified in the PFS was 1.3 GL per annum).

    2018-2019 Drilling Program Aims

    The drilling campaign has five broad aims:

    1. Improved Mineral Resource classification - defining Measured Resources.

    2. Growth of Mineral Resources - exploration along margins of existing mineralised bodies.

    3. Confirmation of the location of infrastructure and site layout - geotechnical, hydrogeological and sterilisation drilling for project infrastructure and process plant civil works.

    4. Overburden definition - identification of oxide and/or transition layer(s).

    5. Blue-sky exploration - follow up previously identified geophysical anomalies.

    Improved Resource Classification

    Based on the results of the PFS, COB is aiming to define a component of Measured Mineral Resources. This will require in-fill drilling at approximately 40 metre spacing to improve geological confidence and data density. During the Mining Study, Measured Mineral Resources will be evaluated for conversion to Proven Ore Reserves. Typically, the target quantity for Proven Ore Reserves would be sufficient to provide ore for the initial three to five year period of the proposed project production.

    Additional in-fill drilling will target improved classification of Inferred to Indicated Mineral Resources. Indicated Mineral Resources will be evaluated for conversion into Probable Ore Reserves during the Mining Study.

    Mineral Resource Growth

    In the upcoming campaign, COB is aiming to increase the Inferred Mineral Resources by targeting down-dip extensions at the Pyrite Hill deposit and shallow strike extensions at the Big Hill and Railway deposits. COB is targeting a 20+ year mine life with growth of the overall Mineral Resource a key component of achieving this target. For clarity, future additional drilling campaigns are expected to be undertaken following completion of the 2H 2018 to 1H 2019 program which is described in this announcement.

    Exploration targets identified for current and future phases of exploration drilling are summarised in Table 1(see link below).

    Oxidation Boundary Definition

    COB will drill near-surface holes to better define the oxide and/or transition oxide-sulphide layers which represent shallow overburden (10-25 metres) on top of the fresh sulphide ore. To date (in the PFS and Scoping Study), oxidised and partially oxidised material was excluded from the reported Mineral Resources and subsequently proposed mining and processing studies. The drilling campaign will identify if any cobalt is present through the oxidation profile, and if so, related metallurgical studies will then be undertaken.

    Infrastructure and Site Layout

    COB will complete additional drilling for the purposes of geotechnical, hydrological and hydrogeological assessment related to infrastructure, mining and process plant planning.

    Blue-sky exploration

    In September 2017, the entire project area (63km2) was surveyed using a heliborne electromagnetic (EM) survey (VTEM-Max) at a nominal 100 metre line spacing. Several strong EM responses outside of the existing Mineral Resources (Pyrite Hill, Railway and Big Hill) were identified and cross-checked with coincident geophysical (Induced Polarisation) and geochemical anomalism (see Figure 2 in link below). In the current drilling campaign, COB will undertake some preliminary drilling at these targets and further downhole geophysics (down-hole electromagnetics - 'DHEM') as warranted.

    Campaign Update

    Drilling operations have commenced in October with the mobilisation of a versatile drilling fleet comprising two DD and two RC rigs. To date a total of 755 metres have been completed including 230 DD metres and 525 RC metres. DD drilling will support the continuation of geotechnical and geometallurgical studies within the broader feasibility framework while RC drilling will predominantly service the infill program.

    The staged campaign is initially focused on the Pyrite Hill deposit which hosts a combined Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource of 26Mt at 934ppm cobalt and 10.3% sulphur (at a cut-off of 500ppm cobalt and as released 19 March 2018 'Thackaringa - Significant Mineral Resource upgrade'). By capitalising on the existing and favourable drilling density, the infill program will target conversion of the Indicated Mineral Resource component (currently representing 85% of the Pyrite Hill Mineral Resource) to a Measured classification in accordance with the JORC 2012 Code.

    Opportunities for Mineral Resource growth at Pyrite Hill will target down-dip extensions where the deposit remains open at depth below 50mRL (approximately 250m below surface) (see Table 1 in link below - target A).

    It is anticipated the rigs will be deployed to the Railway deposit in late November with the program sharing similar objectives to that of the current Pyrite Hill drilling. Shallow parallel/strike extensions will be targeted by a nominal component of extensional drilling (see Table 1 in link below - target D & E) with further infill drilling to support an improved Mineral Resource classification.

    Essential Water Update

    Essential Water is a water retailer and distributer for the Broken Hill district, supplying treated water, recycled water and untreated water to retail and industrial customers. COB has been consulting with Essential Water for 18 months in order to source raw water required for the Thackaringa Cobalt Project. Essential Water has now confirmed that 1.2GL per annum of (unfiltered industrial) water is available for the Thackaringa Cobalt Project, with an additional 0.3 GL per annum available with a minor capital upgrade to the trunk main network. The estimated water requirements specified in the PFS was 1.3 GL per annum. This does not represent a guarantee of supply, but rather a milestone along the path to a formal service and supply agreement which will be negotiated when the project proceeds to commercial implementation status.

    Cobalt Blue has the following beneficial interests in the tenements:

    - EL 6622 - 70% beneficial interest

    - EL 8143 - 70% beneficial interest

    - ML 86 - 70% beneficial interest

    - ML 87 - 70% beneficial interest

    Altech Chemicals Limited (Altech/the Company) (ASX:ATC) (FRA:A3Y) is pleased to provide an update on the numerous patent applications (pending) that it has lodged for its kaolin to high purity alumina (HPA) production process (Altech HPA Process), and the status of its recently granted Innovation Patent 2018101228.


    - Total of seven (7) Patent Applications lodged for Altech HPA Process

    - Five (5) Patent Applications lodged in Australia

    - Two (2) Patent Applications lodged in Malaysia

    - One (1) Innovation Patent granted in Australia - currently in examination

    The Company is committed to placing itself in a strong position to protect its intellectual property rights. Accordingly, Altech has so far lodged seven (7) Patent Applications for the Altech HPA Process. Five (5) Patent Applications have been lodged in Australia, with one (1) application granted - Innovation Patent 2018101228. Two (2) Patent Applications have been lodged in Malaysia. The Patent Applications have been lodged in the name of Altech's wholly owned subsidiary, Altech Chemicals Australia Pty Ltd. Details of each Patent Application are summarised in Table 1, (see link below).

    Granted Innovation Patent 2018101228

    On 16 October 2018 the Company announced that it had received the Certificate of Grant for its Innovation Patent 2018101228 from the Australian Patent Office (IP Australia), for the Company's method of producing high purity alumina (HPA) from kaolin (aluminous clay). The prescribed process for an Innovation Patent following grant, is that the patent is examined by IP Australia and once the examination is passed, the Innovation Patent is certified then published. IP Australia recently issued its initial examination report for the Company's Innovation Patent 2018101228 (Examination report No. 1). In the section of the examination report titled "Novelty and Innovative steps", the innovation and novelty of the Altech HPA Process were queried; the Company now has a 6-month period to respond to IP Australia and remove grounds for revocation of the patent, else the Innovation Patent will cease. Interestingly, one of the queries raised in the Examination report was in relation to an innovation step previously filed by the Company, under the former name of its wholly owned subsidiary, Kaolin2alumina Pty Ltd.

    The initial examination determination by IP Australia of the Company's Innovation Patent is not final nor binding, and the Company via its Patent Attorney WRAYS will now respond to IP Australia with further clarification and justification as to the innovation and novelty of the Altech HPA Process. It is the view of the Company and WRAYS that a significant and innovative step of the Altech HPA Process described in the Innovation Patent is the recycling and re-use of HCl gas, which previous patents did not deploy. WRAYS has advised Altech that a response to clarify patent innovation and novelty following an initial Innovation Patent examination is not unusual. The Company will keep shareholders updated as to the status of the various Patent Applications and the examination process.

    The award of a patent to Altech (and its wholly owned subsidiary) for the Altech HPA process is not a condition precedent to draw-down of the KfW IPEX-Bank senior debt (US$190m).

    Thomson Resources (ASX:TMZ) is pleased to announce its drilling program at Bygoo Tin has commenced, with a program at Harry Smith Gold to follow.

    At Bygoo North, the main target will be to define and extend the newly discovered "Dumbrells" greisen which runs north-south through the old Dumbrells shallow pit (see Figure 1 in link below, also see TMZ ASX release 19 March 2018).

    The Tin drill program also includes several targets in the Big Bygoo area that lies around two kilometres south of the discoveries at Bygoo North and South. The prospects occur as outcropping greisens running for several hundred metres each. Many old workings have been sunk on the outcropping greisens with active mining taking place between 1912 and 1939. According to Mine Records at least 10,600 tons of ore was mined from shallow depths, containing around 200 tons of tin. This is similar to the Mine Record production from Bygoo North.

    A second drill program is planned at the Harry Smith Prospect, south of Ardlethan, to follow up on the Company's strong gold results from its inaugural drilling, including the 54m at 1.0 g/t Au from a depth of 8m intersected near the Golden Spray workings (see ASX release 23 March 2018).

    In all, around 3,000m of drilling is planned, the largest program undertaken to date by Thomson in the Ardlethan district. Results are expected from early December.

    Bygoo Tin Project

    The Bygoo Tin Project was acquired by Thomson Resources in 2015 and lies on the 100% owned EL 8260 (through Riverston Tin PL). The EL surrounds the major tin deposit at Ardlethan which was mined until 1986, with over 31,500 tonnes of tin being produced (reference Paterson, R.G., 1990, Ardlethan tin deposits in the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Monograph no. 14, pages 1357-1364). There are several early-twentieth century shallow tin workings scattered up to 10km north and south of Ardlethan, and few have been tested with modern exploration. Thomson has had immediate success in drilling near two of the historic workings, Bygoo North and South, which lie towards the northern end of the tin-bearing Ardlethan Granite.

    At Bygoo North Thomson has intersected multiple high-grade tin intersections in a quartztopaz- cassiterite greisen including 11m at 1.0% Sn (BNRC10), 35m at 2.1% Sn (BNRC11), 11m at 1.4% Sn (BNRC13), 11m at 2.1% Sn (BNRC20), 29m at 1.0% Sn (BNRC33) and 19m at 1.0% Sn (BNRC40). The greisen appears to be steep to vertical; about 5-10m wide in true width; strike east-west; and the tin intersections appear to have continuity within the greisen.

    At Bygoo South Thomson has intersected a sulphide-rich quartz topaz greisen with highgrade tin intersections including 8m at 1.3% Sn (BNRC21), 20m at 0.9% Sn (BNRC31) and 7m at 1.3% Sn (BNRC35). The orientation and geometry of this greisen is not yet clear.

    20km south of Bygoo Thomson has intersected more tin at one of the old workings in the Bald Hill tin field with a best result of 15m at 0.4% Sn from 19m depth in hole BHRC01.

    As announced to the ASX on 21 November 2016, Riverston Tin PL (a wholly owned subsidiary of Thomson) signed a Farm-in and Joint Venture Agreement for its Bygoo Tin Project with a Canadian investor (BeiSur OstBarat Agency Ltd). As recently amended Bei Sur (or nominee) can earn a 51% interest by contributing $A3 million in staged payments by 30 June 2019. Bei Sur then has an option to contribute additional $A22 million to earn a further 25% interest.

    Harry Smith Gold Project

    The Harry Smith Gold Project lies on EL 8531, granted to Thomson Resources in 2016 and situated 30km south of Ardlethan. Two distinct gold-bearing quartz reefs occur at the Harry Smith prospect and were worked historically from 1893 to 1942. Total recorded production was over 3,500 ounces of gold (Mines Record 2507). The last modern exploration was in 1995, with intercepts of GG95-2 (25m at 2.2 g/t Au from 16m depth) and GG95-13 (18m at 2.4 g/t Au from 73m depth) confirming the potential of the Golden Spray area at the northwest end of the Harry Smith line of lode.

    The Harry Smith gold prospect and other nearby gold shows appear to be of the Intrusion-Related Gold deposit type, related to the Grong Grong granite intrusion which lies 1km to the south.

    Deep Yellow Limited (ASX:DYL) (OTCMKTS:DYLLF) is pleased to announce that the current phase of broad delineation drilling in the Tumas 1 East area on EPL3497 has now been completed. Extensive uranium mineralisation has been identified in the Tumas 1 East palaeochannel area within a system of newly defined Tributaries 1, 2, 4 and 5. Resource infill drilling will now start in Tributary 1. EPL3497 is held by Reptile Uranium Namibia (Pty) Ltd (RUN), part of the group of companies wholly owned by Deep Yellow.


    - Completion of current phase of first pass delineation drilling has opened a multiple mineralised channel system ready for detailed resource drilling follow-up

    - Highly significant uranium mineralisation confirmed in previously unknown Tumas 1 East tributary channels 1, 2, 4 and 5

    o 16km of mineralised channel identified for follow-up resource drilling

    - With 35 holes for 419m completed since last release, 50% of the holes returned >100ppm eU3O8 over 1m - best intersections

    o TA145 3m at 306ppm eU3O8 from 5m

    o TA154 5m at 430ppm eU3O8 from surface

    o TA170 9m at 221ppm eU3O8 from 7m

    - Resource upgrade drilling commenced 2 November on Tributary 1 and will commence on 5 November on Tumas 3 West

    - Mineralisation is calcrete-associated hosted within palaeochannels, similar to the Langer Heinrich uranium mine located 30km to the north

    Since the last drilling update (as reported 17 October 2018) 35 holes have been drilled for 419m between 12 October to 1 November, completing the current phase of the target delineation work in this area. In total 180 RC holes have been drilled in the Tumas 1 East area for 2,173m to broadly test the tributary channels for mineralisation with positive results being returned.

    Further work will now shift to resource drilling in this area until the end of 2018. A second RC drill rig has also been contracted to begin resource drilling on 5 November over the highly prospective western extension of the Tumas 3 discovery. Figure 1 shows the prospective paleochannel system outline and prospect locations.

    Tumas 1 East Drilling

    Broad exploration delineation drilling testing the headwaters east of the Tumas 1 deposit has identified a multipronged channel system comprising, at this stage, 7 tributaries draining into the main Tumas palaeochannel as shown in Figure 2.

    The 35 holes drilled since 12 October have continued to indicate promising mineralisation, this time in the eastern portion of Tributary 2 (see Figure 3) and in the previously untested Tributary 5 area where a wide mineralised channel has been identified (see Figure 4). This work has considerably expanded the area of high significance for uranium mineralisation. With this work, the drilling has identified a total of 15-16km highly prospective channels available for resource upgrade work. Large portions of Tributary 4 and 5 still remain to be tested to the west of where currently drilled. The interpreted Tributary 6 remains untested.

    These new results produced intersections in the range of 143ppm U3O8 over 10m (TA165) to 430ppm U3O8 over 5m (TA154). The average thickness of the mineralisation is close to 5m.

    Drill hole and channel locations are shown in Figure 2. Figures 3 and 4 show drill crosssections through Tributaries 2 and 5 respectively, highlighting the continuity and thickness of mineralisation.

    Mineralised intersections from the current reporting period that are above the 100ppm U3O8 over 1m cut-off are tabulated in Table 1, Appendix 1. Table 2 in Appendix 1 lists all drill holes from this reporting period. The equivalent uranium values are based on down-hole radiometric gamma logging carried out by a fully calibrated Aus-Log gamma logging system.

    In summary, with completion of the current phase of the target delineation work carried out in September and October, the following can now be stated:

    - The main Tributary 1 target shows continuous calcrete-type uranium mineralisation along 4.6km length. This channel ranges from 100m to 900m in width. The mineralisation is located at shallow depth from surface to 12m below surface. Except for localised hot spots, large parts of this mineralisation do not show any surface radiometric expression.

    - Tributaries 2 and 3 are less mineralised except for the eastern headwaters of Tributary 2 showing encouraging results along 2km of channel way.

    - Both Tributaries 4 and 5 north of Tributary 1 show encouraging results indicating possible uranium mineralisation along a further 10km of channel length.

    - Tributary 6 is currently defined from air photo interpretation and geological mapping only and remains to be tested.


    To date a total of 180 holes for 2,173m were drilled in the area. Drill spacings have varied from 50m to 100m along lines 200m to 1,600m apart. 103 of these holes returned positive results of more than 100ppm eU3O8 over 1m. This reflects an almost 60% success rate. The average grade of the 1m intersections >100ppm U3O8 is 295ppm and >200ppm U3O8 is 433ppm which is the cut-off used in the previous resource estimates.

    The results of the ongoing exploration are regarded as very encouraging. This drilling in what was a previously unknown headwater system of the Tumas palaeochannel system has identified a new continuous calcrete type uranium mineralisation at shallow depth. Importantly, new uranium mineralisation in the tributary paleochannel system in the Tumas East area has opened up the potential for further mineralisation in Tributaries 2, 4, 5 and possibly 6, along an extensive strike length.

    The ongoing work continues to show that the uranium mineralisation is not confined to one simple, single channel but rather is associated with a complex palaeodrainage system containing several channels and tributaries.

    This fourth (ongoing) drilling campaign is continuing to produce positive results. This is not only expected to add to the current uranium resource base of this project but, just as significantly, continues to emphasise the strong exploration potential of the extensive, uranium-fertile palaeochannel system within which the new Tumas palaeochannel discoveries occur.

    The drill program emphasis will now change to resource drilling at Tumas 1 East and Tumas 3 West. A second RC drilling rig has been contracted to start the resource drilling at Tumas 3 West. These drilling programs will continue into December.

    An updated Inferred Resource estimation for the Tumas 1 East Zone, in conjunction with Tumas 1 & 2 and Tumas 3 West is expected to be delivered in early 2019.

    CEO Comment

    John Borshoff commented: "Our work on the Reptile Project is again confirming the very high prospectivity of the Tumas palaeochannel system that has been identified. The new zone of mineralisation that has been discovered to the east adds significantly to the potential of these channels, which are showing all the hallmarks of being able to substantially increase the currently identified resource base associated with this regionally extensive target."

    Nanollose Limited (ASX:NC6) (FRA:N0L) ("Nanollose" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that in addition to the non-binding Memorandum of Understanding ("MoU") signed in April 2018, a binding research agreement ("Agreement") has been executed with Indonesian food producer, PT Supra Natami Utama ("PT SNU").


    - Microbial Cellulose (MC) supply partnership deepens with research agreement

    - Research underway to assess best MC growing conditions and processing methods for scale-up

    - Agreement paves the way for a binding agreement to develop a commercial growing facility

    - Nanollose to retain all Intellectual Property resulting from the research

    The agreement will accelerate research into the best growing conditions and processing methods of microbial cellulose before scaling up to commercial production. The agreement also takes Nanollose a step closer towards a binding agreement for developing a commercial scale factory to produce textile grade microbial cellulose, which can then be transformed into fibre using Nanollose's technology.

    Securing large quantities of microbial cellulose is critical in that it will allow Nanollose to provide brands, retailers and manufactures with enough raw material to create commercial quantities of our Tree-Free NullarborTM fibre. Achieving this scale will eventually set the platform for future revenues from the raw material supply chain, the licencing of our technology and royalties from end users.

    As Nanollose prepares to scale-up microbial cellulose production, the Company is also pleased to announce that, as a result of this Agreement, PT SNU has employed a scientist dedicated solely to Nanollose's R&D. This scientist will also oversee the processing of the Company's 250kg stockpile of raw microbial cellulose into a form suitable for the production of Nullarbor fibre.

    Under the terms of the Agreement Nanollose retains all intellectual property and PT SNU has first right of refusal to work with Nanollose to jointly develop a commercial scale factory and supply chain for microbial cellulose in Indonesia.

    Nanollose Managing Director Alfie Germano said; "This is an encouraging next step. Our partner is providing Nanollose with a broad foundation to help develop the technology and build a supply chain. In the near future we see more formal agreements between the two companies to commence commercial supply".


    PT Supra Natami Utama is one of Indonesia's largest and most established producers of coconut food, beverages and cosmetic products and has multiple facilities across Indonesia with access to significant quantities of coconut by-products and waste streams.

    Through this partnership, Nanollose has gained access to these waste streams for use in the production of textile grade microbial cellulose on an industrial scale, which can then be transformed by using Nanollose technology into fibres. Nanollose and PT SNU also started to explore, unlock and develop other sources of liquid organic waste (including beer and other fermentable liquids) as feedstocks for additional microbial cellulose.

    WA-focused gold exploration and development company Classic Minerals Limited (ASX:CLZ) ("Classic", or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has commenced RC drilling at its Forrestania Gold Project (FGP) in Western Australia.


    - 1000m of RC drilling underway at Kat Gap after highly successful campaign in August 2018

    - Assay results expected late November

    - Drilling to extend strike and up-dip extensions of Kat Gap high grade mineralisation

    Classic CEO Dean Goodwin said:

    Following the stunning results of our last drilling program, including multiple high-grade gold hits at Kat Gap and Lady Magdalene, we are very excited to be heading back to the FGP to undertake further follow up drilling. This latest round will be focused solely on our Kat Gap project which delivered outstanding results over the previous 3 drill campaigns. Drilling will again focus on the main granite - greenstone contact of which only 160m of a total 3.5km of potential strike has been tested by the Company.

    We are planning to drill north along strike and also test for high grade gold mineralisation up-dip from previous bonanza intersections to see how close the gold gets to the surface. This information will be extremely important in any future mine planning and pit design work.

    Future drilling programs at Kat Gap will then focus on testing an 800m long section of the main granite - greenstone contact where current drill line spacings are 100m apart. Our current drilling is located right in the middle of this 800m long section. We are of the firm belief that significant gold mineralisation is lurking between these sections similar to what we have seen during the last 3 drilling programs. I can't wait to get stuck into it.


    Following on from the very encouraging results (see ASX announcement dated 8 October 2018) from its last program at Kat Gap, the Company will be targeting this area again with additional drilling.


    Kat Gap contains a shallow unmined gold deposit discovered in the 1990s, which was the subject of resource estimations and scoping study by Sons of Gwalia in 2003. The open-ended deposit lies within a 5 km long geochemical gold anomaly that has seen very little drill testing, and after the previous drill program completed in August, Classic sees great potential for the discovery of a substantial shallow high-grade gold deposit within the Kat Gap project area. The upcoming program will be testing for extensions of the high-grade gold system.

    The most recent drilling completed in August was focused on testing the main granite-greenstone contact which has been the main focus since the prospect was discovered by previous holders. A few holes were drilled up against the cross-cutting Proterozoic dyke where high-grade gold mineralisation appears to have concentrated. Several holes were also drilled deeper testing the interpreted plunge of the main mineralisation. Drill holes FKGRC017 - FKGRC019, FKGRC022 - 024 and FKGRC028 - 033 (inclusive), all tested the main contact lode with holes FKGRC020 - 021 and FKGRC027 drilled close to the Proterozoic dyke. Holes FKGRC025 and FKGRC026 were drilled deeper down the potential plunge of the main system. Better results from these holes included: 10m @ 30.78 g/t Au from 28m including 2m @ 116.10 g/t Au from 31m in FKGRC018; 9m @ 8.08 g/t Au from 95m including 1m @ 62.30 g/t Au from 101m in FKGRC025; 10m @ 4.18 g/t Au from 26m including 1m @ 15.10 g/t Au from 31m in FKGRC022 and 5m @ 4.85 g/t Au from 16m including 1m @ 19.10 g/t Au from 16m in FKGRC017.

    Holes FKGRC025 and FKGRC026 were drilled deeper than previous holes to test the potential down plunge extent of the main granite-greenstone contact lode. Both holes intersected significant gold mineralisation supporting the interpretation of a seventy-degree plunge to the north. Results include: 9m @ 8.08 g/t Au from 95m including 1m @ 62.30 g/t Au from 101m in FKGRC025 and 1m @ 18.80 g/t Au from 86m in FKGRC026. The plunge line is wide open along strike and down dip.

    As part of the November drilling campaign, Classic has 17 holes planned at Kat Gap for a total of 1,000m. These holes will test further north along strike from existing RC drilling along the granite-greenstone contact zone. In addition, the drilling will also test for up-dip continuations of high-grade gold mineralisation up against the Proterozoic dyke.


    The FGP Tenements (excluding Kat Gap and Lady Lila) are registered in the name of Reed Exploration Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of ASX listed Hannans Ltd (ASX:HNR). Classic has acquired 80% of the gold rights on the FGP Tenements from a third party, whilst Hannans has maintained its 20% interest in the gold rights. Hannans' 20% interest is free-carried, meaning Hannans is not required to fund any activities on the FGP until a decision to mine has been made. For the avoidance of doubt Classic Ltd owns a 100% interest in non-gold rights on the Kat Gap and Lady Lila Tenements including but not limited to nickel, lithium and other metals.

    The FGP contains an existing Mineral Resource of 5.3 Mt at 1.39 g/t for 240,000 ounces of gold, classified and reported in accordance with the JORC Code (2012), with a recent Scoping Study (see ASX Announcement released 2nd May2017) suggesting both the technical and financial viability of the project. The current post-mining Mineral Resource for Lady Ada, Lady Magdalene and Lady Lila is tabulated in the link below.
