JORC resource confirms highest grade ilmenite ‘titanium’ project in world

Bluejay continue to work up the scale and grade of resources at the Pituffik mineral sands project in Greenland. The JORC inferred resource shows the project is probably the world’s highest grade and ranks as world class when compared with major mineral sands projects held by major western mineral sands miners.

Road to Value -- FinnAust Mining in Greenland is ticking the box with some project milestones at Pituffik.

Advancing toward mining titanium rich, ilmenite mineral sands at Pituffik. *Valuation: We value the project at an IRR of 43% and a $144m NPV on an 8% discount rate. This give us an NPV per share of 19 pence. *Pituffik deposit is very different from other mineral sands deposits and experts suggest Pituffik titanium mineral sands grades may rank among world’s highest. Pituffik’s mineralogy is much simpler and the deposit is seen as unusually consistent. *Tonnage, consistency and metallurgical evaluation should help confirm potential value of the in-situ deposit. Quality of mineral sands concentrates is critical with Pituffik appearing suitable for sulphate production. Processing, as with all ilmenite, is required to reduce impurities to acceptable levels. *Royal IHC, the Dutch dredging company, is supporting work on the dredging of shallow and near shore marine mineral sands. *Ilmenite Demand for ilmenite concentrates should continue to rise.

Aim and FSE listed exploration company focused on the highly prospective Pituffik titanium project in Greenland with cornerstone support from one of Australia’s largest nickel miners

Pituffik has been proven to host a very large and unusually pure titanium occurrence that displays characteristics which have been independently verified as having the potential to be a top percentile project in terms of grade Read more

INVESTMENT ALERT - from independent information and advisory publication on investing in Strategic Metals & Rare Earths

Management of FinnAust believes that the results from the diverse range of initiatives undertaken will gener-ate a large array of data that will tie in with other work programmes that are underway in the background. The completion of a maiden JRC resource, together with results from the environmental impact assessment, will position the Company for its next leap early next year into permitting of an exploitation licence in the first half of 2017. Pituffik continues to exceed FinnAust’s expectations at each turn and is believed to be eventually recog-nized as a globally significant ilmenite deposit, both in terms of grades and tonnes. With the Company progressing well, considering its low market valuation of only £ 31.0 million (US$ 40.2 mil-lion), I have raised my 12-months price target from GBp 7.00 to GBp 9.00. Read more

Metocean study to help Royal IHC advance preparation for dredge mining

All of our activities, be it our continuing resource definition programme, our recently completed Environmental Impact Assessment or our metallurgical testwork, are focused on executing on the exciting potential Pituffik demonstrates to deliver a multi-decade operation supplying low impurity Ilmenite to the market. This study by Svašek Hydraulics will provide Royal IHC with important information to support its dredge mining studies and we look forward to working with them to add value to this unique asset in Greenland.

Progress report on Pituffik mineral sands exploration

The exploration work at Pituffik appears to have generated some very positive results with a high level of success in both the onshore and offshore drilling and high levels of ilmenite sand intersections. The data should underpin a JORC compliant resource estimate and parallel work streams to support environmental permitting and the submission of an exploitation licence application early next year have also been completed. We look forward to a resource estimate and further information on grades. Read more

SP Angel - FinnAust Mining 5.1p, mkt Cap £25.3m – FinnAust Mining is pushing ahead with exploration and delineation of the Pituffik titanium mineral sands project in Greenland.

*So far reports suggest the project is shaping up well and is heading towards trial mining of a relatively pure and potentially premium ilmenite product. * Illuka’s recent offer to buy Sierra Rutile indicates to us that demand for titanium mineral sands is rising again after several years of depressed prices and a surplus of supply. *High iron ore prices in past years caused Chinese smelters to utilise lower cost titanium rich magnetite ores promoting the sale of surplus titanium ore from these types of deposits. Now lower iron ore prices has put an end to much of this higher-cost ore supply causing buyers to return to the market for titanium mineral sands. Read more

Extended offshore licence granted for Pittufik Titanium Project, Greenland

FAM granted an extension of its existing licence to include all minerals within the shallow marine environment at its Pituffik Titanium Project. The extended licence now includes marine extensions of titanium-rich black sands (Drowned Beaches). Mod- elling suggests this area contains ilmenite bearing sed- iments similar to that of the active raised beaches at Pituffik, but in much larger volumes. Read more
