BEHARRA MRE UPGRADED BY 25 PC

arrow-down-2 Created with Sketch.

Perpetual Resources (ASX:PEC) upgrades Beharra mineral resource estimate by 25pc


  • Perpetual Resources (PEC) has upgraded the Beharra Project's mineral resource estimate from 111 million tonnes to 139 million tonnes at 98.6 per cent silicon dioxide
  • The resource estimate marks a 25 per cent increase in tonnage and has shifted from the inferred to indicated category
  • While the silica grade remains the same, Perpetual has already shown it can be increased to over 99.5 per cent silicon dioxide
  • The next step is finalising documentation for the pre-feasibility study which began in the middle of last year


Perpetual Resources (PEC) has upgraded the mineral resource estimate for its WA-based Beharra Project from the inferred to indicated category.


The indicated mineral resource estimate now sits at 139 million tonnes at 98.6 per cent silicon dioxide which represents a 25 per cent increase in tonnage.


Pleasingly, upgrading the resource category paves the way for a mineral reserve estimate which will be concluded once the Beharra Project's pre-feasibility study (PFS) is finalised.


While the grade remains the same as the maiden resource announced in July last year, Perpetual has already shown the silica grade can be increased to over 99.5 per cent silicon dioxide.


"It is pleasing to have reported an increase in mineral resource tonnage at Beharra, which has further increased the potential to meet high-grade silica sand demand for a considerable period," Managing Director Robert Benussi said.


After the initial resource estimate was completed, Perpetual drilled a further 32 aircore holes on the northern exploration target, with some infill and twin holes drilled in the southern portion. Both rounds of drilling were used to generate the new mineral resource estimate.


"This resource upgrade is a further marker of the quality of the Beharra Project, which we expect will be further demonstrated with the imminent release of the Beharra pre-feasibility study," Robert added.


The next step is finalising documentation for the PFS, which began around the same time the initial resource estimate was completed.

PEC RELEASE MINERAL RESOURCE UPDATE

arrow-down-2 Created with Sketch.

22nd July 2020 - The Market Herald




  • Perpetual Resources (PEC) has released a maiden mineral resource estimate for the Beharra High Purity Silica Sands Project in WA
  • The inferred mineral resource estimate for Beharra stands at 111.3 million tonnes at 98.6 per cent silicon dioxide
  • Additionally, an exploration target of between eight to 13 million tonnes with grades between 97 to 99 per cent silicon dioxide was also estimated
  • Perpetual is now collecting environmental, heritage and native title evaluations for the completion of a pre-feasibility study
  • Once discussions with relevant bodies are completed, the company will lodge a mining lease application for the Beharra Project
  • Despite this news, Perpetual's share price has dropped 12.5 per cent and shares are trading for 3.5 cents each

Perpetual Resources (PEC) has released a maiden mineral resource estimate for the Beharra High Purity Silica Sands Project in WA.

The inferred mineral resource estimate for Beharra stands at 111.3 million tonnes at 98.6 per cent silicon dioxide.

This resource estimate was calculated from 40 aircore holes, totalling 506.7 metres, and 38 auger drill holes, totalling 76 metres.


Additionally, an exploration target of between eight to 13 million tonnes with grades between 97 to 99 per cent silicon dioxide was also estimated.


This target extends beneath the mineral resource to the north and the quantity and grade of the target is conceptual as there has been insufficient exploration to estimate a mineral resource in this area.


Perpetual is now collecting prerequisite inputs for the completion of a pre-feasibility study. This includes environmental, heritage and native title evaluation, and further detailed analysis of the Beharra Project.


Additionally, the mineral resource estimate will be used to form the basis of a mining lease application.

Once Perpetual has completed discussions with environmental, heritage, and permitting consultants, it will lodge a mining lease application with the Western Australian Department of Mines.


"The maiden mineral resource estimation and exploration target has provided us with a compelling investment case for proceeding with a pre-feasibility study across the project," Managing Director Robert Benussi said.


"The scale of the mineral resource in conjunction with the amenability of the silica to produce a high purity product strongly warrants our dedicated focus to advance the project," Robert said.


"The delineation of the additional exploration target provides scope to significantly expand the scale of the project when required," he said.

Despite this news, Perpetual's share price has dropped 12.5 per cent and shares are trading for 3.5 cents each at 1:18 pm AEST.

Perpetual Resources (ASX:PEC) spends September quarter advancing Beharra

Perpetual Resources (ASX:PEC) - Executive Chairman, Julian Babarczy - The Market Herald


  • During the September quarter, Perpetual Resources (PEC) has further advanced its Western Australian Silica Sand Projects

  • The company's main focus was its flagship Beharra Project which lies around 300 kilometres north of Perth

  • One highlight for the quarter was the release of a maiden mineral resource estimate for Beharra of 111.3 million tonnes at 98.6 per cent silicon dioxide

  • Additionally, a pre-feasibility began at Beharra with aims to improve the economics of the project

  • Strong progress has been made with metallurgical testwork beginning on a 2000 kilometre bulk sample

  • In terms of finances, Perpetual spent just under $159,000 in the quarter, leaving a cash balance of just over $680,000 and representing 1.8 quarters of funding available

  • Despite this, a recent $2 million placement will bolster the company's cash balance

    During the September quarter, Perpetual Resources (PEC) further advanced its Western Australian Silica Sand Projects. The company's main focus was its flagship Beharra Project which lies around 300 kilometres north of Perth and covers an area of 49 square kilometres.

    Exploration 

    The Beharra Project

    One highlight for the quarter was the release of a maiden mineral resource estimate (MRE) for Beharra which reads 111.3 million tonnes at 98.6 per cent silicon dioxide.

    In addition, an exploration target of 8 - 13 million tonnes at a grade of 97 to 99 per cent silicon dioxide was also estimated.

    This exploration target was tested in late September as part of the third phase drilling program which aimed to provide information for a maiden resource estimate.

    A total of 18 aircore holes were drilled and results are due in November.

    The Sargon Sand Project

    Perpetual's Sargon Project covers an area of 30.03 square kilometres and it lies 45 kilometres from Geraldton Port.

    Other than exploration drilling, Sargon wasn't a primary focus for Perpetual during the quarter.

    The company believes work will progress at Sargon once additional information is received and more capacity is available.

    Project Development 


    During the quarter, Perpetual also began a pre-feasibility study (PFS) at Beharra with aims to improve the economics, leading up to a decision to fund the project.

    Highly experienced mining industry professional and current Managing Director of Allied Project Developments Matt Robbins was appointed to oversee the PFS.

    Strong progress has been made with the PFS, with metallurgical testwork beginning on a 2000 kilometre bulk sample.

    Geological services company IHC Robbins will undertake this work and will provide sand quality specifications.

    Finances

    In terms of finances, Perpetual spent $158,772 with the majority going towards staff costs and administration and corporate costs.

    This is a slight increase from the $151,657 spent in the prior corresponding period (pcp).

    As of September 30, the company had $680,552 in cash and cash equivalents, representing 1.8 quarters of funding available.
    This is almost double the $342,598 from the pcp.

    Despite having only 1.8 quarters of funding available, Perpetual's recently completed $2 million placement will bolster its cash balance.

    The company has says it will use the funds to advance its PFS and fast-track the planned definitive feasibility study.

    Perpetual is down 4.35 per cent on the market with shares trading for 4.4 cents each at 2:55 pm AEDT.
