Et par nyheter som tikket inn i løpet av pinsehelgen:

Intex, mining sector upbeat after election

The generally peaceful mid-term election bodes well for the mining industry, industry experts believe, even as the sector eagerly awaited the action of Malacañang to resolve contentious issues pertaining to mining reforms as embodied in Executive Order 79.

The industry is banking on the government's promise to finally come up with lasting solutions that will finally release the potential of mining as a huge revenue contributor to the government coffers.

In the meantime, mining companies such as Norway's Intex Resources ASA, which is developing the Mindoro Nickel Project, continues to make a difference in terms of corporate social responsibility.

Its CSR scorecard this year has tremendously increased as its Leaf project marks 130 hectares of tree and agro-forestry plantations for the second quarter of this year-23 water systems installed in different barangays providing potable water to a total of 16,500 household beneficiaries in 23 host and impact communities.

These milestones were what made this year's Earth Day meaningful to Mindoro townsfolk as it was celebrated with three other major events in cooperation with more than 1,500 members of the Alyansa Laan sa Kaunlaran at Kalikasan, Laban sa Kahirapan in Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro.

Yahoo News: Mining industry upbeat on election results, sees reforms (fra Manila Bulletin i dag)

The generally peaceful and orderly mid-term election bodes well for the mining industry, industry experts believe, even as industry leaders eagerly await the action of Malacañang to resolve contentious issues pertaining to mining reforms as embodied in Executive Order 79.

The industry is banking on the government's promise to finally come up with lasting solutions that will finally unleash the potential of mining as a huge revenue contributor to the government coffers.

In the meantime, mining companies such as Norwegian-based Intex Resources ASA, which is developing Mindoro Nickel Project (MNP), continues to make a difference in terms of Corporate Social Responsibility ((CSR). Its CSR scorecard this year has significantly increased as its LEAF project marks 130-hectares of tree and agro-forestry plantations for the 2nd quarter of this year; 23 water systems have been installed in different barangays providing potable water to a total of 16,500 household beneficiaries in 23 host and impact communities.

These milestones were what made this year's Earth Day meaningful to Mindoro townsfolk as it was celebrated with three other major events in cooperation with more than 1,500 members of the Alyansa Laan sa Kaunlaran at Kalikasan, Laban sa Kahirapan (ALAS-KA) in Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro.

"To this day, no single private initiative has ever contributed an important and basic service delivery to the development of Mindoro such as this. This is a significant and major contribution of Intex Resources' MNP in the province" remarked BuCor's Sablayan Prison Penal Farm (SPPF) Superintendent, Francisco Abunales in his speech at the ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the Potable Water System and the SPPF LEAF nursery. "In more than 50 years, this is the first time that the SPPF will now have potable water in our offices, households, plant nurseries and prison cell facilities", he added.

With MNP's Community Development Program, a significant number of constituents from host and impact communities are already benefiting real socio-economic services even before MNP's actual mining operations are conducted. They are serious in their environment initiatives to demonstrate consistency with being a responsible mining company. Through the LEAF Project, MNP, at this early stage, demonstrates a model of a mined-out land rehabilitation by providing an multi-canopy rubber- based Agro-Forestry project within the Penal Farm vicinity - - a land rehabilitation project that will, not only provide socio-economic development, but also, restore the natural ecosystem functions of the disturbed area.

Danilo Martinez, the Chairman of the Alyansa Laan sa Kaunlaran at Kalikasan, Laban sa Kahirapan (ALAS-KA) celebrating their fourth anniversary, led the early morning Earth Day motorcade around the Municipality of Sablayan raising awareness for the Environment which then proceeded to the BuCor's SPPF for the LEAF tree planting activity which saw 1,500 rubber seedlings planted to three hectares in the compound.

Intex Resources MNP ComRel head Andy Pestaño, also remarked," for as long as we are focused on our vision to develop the quality of life of our communities by responsible utilization and management of our resources at the time protecting the environment that hosts our life-support system, this is what responsible mining is all about".

Rev. Fr. Roberto C. Cadid Jr., parish priest of Barangay Pag-asa, Sablayan officiated the blessing of the LEAF nursery, Demonstration and Training Farm and the SPPF Water System.

Der kom nyheten vi har ventet på. Jævlig synd jeg ikke var til stede og fikk solgt på 4. ser ut som noen shortere fikk det travelt med å dekke seg inn.

Håper vi får flere nyheter og den fortsetter oppover.

Intex Resources ASA has today signed a new agreement
with MCC8 Group Company Ltd (MCC8), replacing the
agreement of cooperation announced on 7 November
2012. The agreement includes a suggested process of
listing Mindoro Nickel in Hong Kong with a new mining
joint venture company between MCC8 and Jinchuan as
operator of the project.



Over the recent months MCC8 has introduced the
Mindoro Nickel project to several global leading HPAL
operators and potential partners/investors. The
agreement, which includes a proposal from MCC8 for a
listing of the project in Hong Kong, includes setting
up a mining joint venture between MCC8 and Jinchuan
to operate the Mindoro Nickel Project. The listing
proposal has an overall structure that is viewed as
attractive and feasible for the realisation of the
project. Other global leading HPAL operators and
partners might join the consortium to develop the
Mindoro Nickel Project. Certain points in the
proposal, such as approval of an exception to the
standard listing criteria, funding partners, terms
with the operating company etc, still need
clarification, and it is therefore not certain that
all criteria for the agreement can be met.



"We are happy to move forward with MCC8. The proposal
from MCC8 for a joint agreement with an experienced
HPAL operator is a key milestone for the development
and represent a de-risking of the project. The
proposed listing allows for international and
Philippine participation in the development of this
major nickel project", says CEO Henno Grenness.

equivalent to ca. 83 000 kg Scandium Oxide (Sc2O3) per year. The price
of Scandium Oxide (99.95% purity) is in the range of USD 6 000 - 7 000 per kg*

Dette må det da bli enormt med penger av.. 581 millioner USD. pr. år. I tillegg til nikkel. Kan dette være riktig?

Hvorfor har de ikke startet produksjonen?

Det staar imidlertid lite om Sc i de 2.

re. Akilles,

tror du det staar et marked klar til aa kjoepe 80 tonn 99.95% Sc2O3 fra Intex til US$580m pr aar?

Nei, hverken jeg eller markedet tror det.

Hvis Intex faar prosjektet sitt realisert, saa er det beste de kan haape paa med Sc aa produsere et raa-konsentrat av Sc2O3 som skipes til et spesialraffineri som lager forskjllige kvaliteter som markedet vil ha, og saa selges det gjennom etablerte kanaler til de som etterspor Sc-oksyd.

Da blir lite av verdiskapningen igjen til ITX.

Mest sannsynlig blir det ikke realisert sammen med Ni-prod (om den skulle bli realisert en gang), men kan komme i etterhaand en eller annen gang hvis teknologien skulle fungere.

Re. OldNick #14675

Scandium er uansett bare et biprodukt, som det ikke koster all verden å utvinne på Mindoro-feltet (pga den unike gehalten). Stryk gjerne en null eller to i totalverdien, og det er fortsatt god butikk. Husk at dette bare er et tillegg til nikkelressursene, som er estimert til å kunne generere minst 100 års drift.

Børsverdien på hele selskapet er bare litt over 300 millioner kroner i skrivende stund...

Begrepet Rare Earth Minerals er i seg selv selvmotsigende fordi metallene finnes overalt. Problemet er at det er så fosvinnende små volumer av det og at man må behandle store masser for å utvinne de. Men kritiske applikasjoner etterspør metallene og knappheten på mediumet gjør at prisene kan fremstå eventyrlige.

Som OldNick er inne på, i det noen klarer å utvinne større mengder av det til en rimelig kostnad så vil prisene falle dramatisk.

Så du tror at de bløffer/lyver når de skriver dette:

The price of Scandium Oxide (99.95% purity) is in the range of
USD 6 000 - 7 000 per kg*. Production of Scandium
will increase the economic robustness of the Mindoro
Nickel project, and reduce the economic break-even as
Scandium can be extracted without mining costs, and
only with the costs of the consumables that are
needed for the extraction. Intex has received
significant interest and attention for the Scandium
potential with respect to the realisation process of
the Mindoro Nickel project.

Ligg merke til at "Scandium can be extracted without mining costs"

Og dette:
Scandium has highly potential applications, which are
untapped today, as aluminum strengthening alloy, as
electrolyte in solid oxide fuel cells, and as an
electrode in metal halide lamps and alkaline
batteries. The current world market and consumption
of Scandium is restricted because manufacturers
utilizing Scandium have difficulties in obtaining it
due to the limited supply. Most of the Scandium is
today produced in Russia, China, Ukraine and the US.

Selvfølgelig burde de hatt med et estimat for hvor mye dette utgjør i inntekter for året. Men at markedet tar unna et slik kvantum,ja det tror jeg..

Jeg tror at ærlighet varer lengst og at det er mangel på miljøtillatelsen som gjør at Aksjen ikke går..

Dessuten tror jeg den kan komme utover dagen når alle som selger på gode nyheter er ute..

Dersom 6000-7000 USD/kg gjenspeiler prisen for og "mine" ut dette metallet, så må vel ITX ha en enorm fordel siden dette er et biprodukt for dem, nesten uten ekstrautgifter? Og til en pris som gull-diggere bare kan drømme om..

Dersom foredlingen av dette metallet utgjør mesteparten av prisen på 6000-7000 USD, så må det vel være utrolig lønnsomt for ITX/Fillepinene og også utføre denne prosessen? Jeg bare lurer?

Verdens produksjon av Scandium Oxide er på 2 tonn iflg. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scandium

80 tonn Scandium Oxide årlig fra ITX alene blir noe helt annet så prisene man her snakker om blir helt urealistiske.

Det skulle kunne gi grunnlag for et løft i ITX men det blir en helt annen sak.

For tre måneder siden meldte Sumitomo at de skal bygge en Scandium pilotplant i forbindels med HPAL anlegget på Filippinene. Catch-22 problemet har vært at lav produksjon gir lav etterspørsel gir lav produksjon ... og høy pris.

Sumitomo Metal Mining (SMM) is building a scandium recovery plant in Palawan later this year, and expects the pilot facility to operate in 2014.

"For some time, SMM has been working to develop a scandium recovery method at its Niihama Research Laboratories in Ehime Prefecture," the company noted on its website.

"This effort has now led to the attainment of technology enabling efficient recovery of scandium from the nickel-cobalt mixed sulfide production process," SMM said.
Sumitomo Metal noted that small quantities of scandium are contained in the ore used by its majority-owned subsidiary Coral Bay Nickel Corporation (CBNC) in producing nickel-cobalt mixed sulfide.
Based in Palawan in southwestern Philippines, Coral Bay Nickel produces nickel-cobalt sulfide facility using high-pressure acid leach process or HPAL.

Alle har vel fått med seg at Sc egentlig ikke er REE, men til daglig bruk klassifiseres i samme gruppe.

Dvs. at ITX i fremtiden vil produsere 83000 av 85000 kg av et metall som ser ut til å kunne løse de flest av fremtidens problemet innenfor høyteknologi.(snakk om å ha monopol:)

hei joergen,


Jeg har sett dette fra Sumitomo (SMM), ja.

Det er interessant, fordi SMM er et etablert og suksessfullt selskap innenfor HPAL-lateritt.

Jeg har tidligere lest om prosjekter som har studert Sc-utvinning fra laterittforekomster, spesielt i Australia.

Et annet junior-selskap i Australia som flagger Sc-produksjon fra lateritter er Metallica Minerals Pty.

De har lagt ut en oppsummering av en "scoping study" de har gjort hvor det staar en god del info, ogsaa om Sc.

NORNICO SCOPING STUDY YIELDS POSITIVE RESULTS

Naar de skriver:

"Securing scandium offtake agreements to guarantee future sales of scandium zemains the single biggest challenge for Metallica and the NORNICO project. Based on its ongoing discussions with potential end users in the aluminium master alloy sector and solid oxide fuel cell sector, Metallica is confident of securing offtake agreements for the sale of scandium oxide from NORNICO and this will have to be achieved before a development decision could be considered."

forteller det meg at dette er noksaa urealistisk. Et blikk paa ressursbasen bare understreker dette.

Australia hadde en stor fordel tidligere fordi prosjekt kunne realiseres veldig rimelig der nede. Ikke saa idag, pga. boom'en i ressurs-sektoren (minerals og olje-gass), saa er Australske lonninger i disse industriene paa linje med Nordsjoen, dessverre.

Som du sier, problemet med Sc-markedet er tilgangen og prisen.

For at disse lateritt-operasjonene skal kunne faa solgt noe, trengs en kraftig og langsiktig produkt- og markedsutvikling. Kan det gjores? Hvem skal drive det fremover?


Som jeg har skrevet tidligere, det finnes kompetanse paa REE (og Sc) produksjon i Norge (ja altsaa utenom ITX :-). Akademisk rundt UiO/Kjemisk Inst., industrielt hos Yara og Scatec.

for aluminum, is mined and processed in
Zhovti Vody, Ukraine, the only primary
scandium mine in operation in the world.
The mine has a proven minable scandium
reserve of 7.58 million t of ore grading
at 1.5 g/t of scandium.

ITX: Scandium extraction confirmed - exploring iron extraction potential

Børsmelding
09.08.2013

Intex confirms the preliminary results that over 90% Scandium can be extracted from the Mindoro limonite ore. Intex will also now explore the potential for recovery of iron.

As previously indicated, test work at SGS Lakefield confirmed that Scandium readily enters the HPAL solution, providing 90% of the Scandium in Mindoro limonite ore. The final test work showed that the efficiency of extracting Scandium from the HPAL-liquor, provides over 99% of the dissolved Scandium, while co-extraction of nickel is negligible. The results of stripping of Scandium from the preferred extraction reagent were also successful. The test work revealed that the strip liquors contained no nickel and cobalt, which demonstrate that the Scandium extraction process is very selective.

A purpose of the test work performed by SGS Lakefield was to evaluate the extraction of Scandium from different stages of the processing, and especially compare the HPAL-stage with that of the waste liquor. The results showed that the potential for extraction of Scandium is much higher at the HPAL stage and seemingly with minimal effect to the existing flow sheet. This therefore appears to be the preferred route for Scandium extraction. The potential of recovering as much as 90% Scandium provides substantial economic benefits to the processing of nickel laterite using hydrometallurgy. With a 90% recovery from the HPAL-liquor this translates into 54 000 kg Scandium, equivalent to ca. 83 000 kg Scandium Oxide (Sc2O3) per year at stage-1 of Mindoro Nickel.

The results also indicated that further test work is required to refine the optimal method. While some of this test work is being conducted with the existing sample materials, some will be done at a later stage when all details of the final flowsheet are fully defined. Intex now knows that several realistic routes are available for the extraction of both Scandium and other REE.

In addition to Scandium and other by-products, Intex will also explore the potential for recovery of iron. It has been noted that not only the process liquors of Mindoro laterite has potential upside benefits, but also components of the high iron (Fe) residue materials hold possible value contributions. Secondary hematite, which is formed in the HPAL-autoclave during the processing, ends up as a major component of the tailings, and may allow for conversion into a commercial iron ore product through mechanical upgrade.

The Mindoro Nickel project is already set to provide a range of valuable products, which include Nickel, Cobalt, Chromite, Scandium and REE. When iron extraction is added, it will further strengthen the already robust economics of the project.
