Mining News Update

CRL Exploration Drilling Update (20th Sept)

ASX Release 20th September 2018: New Age Exploration (“NAE” or “the Company”) is excited to announce the outstanding results from the first two holes of the 2018 Phase 1 drilling program at its Redmoor Tin‐Tungsten Project, being undertaken through its 50% owned joint venture vehicle Cornwall Resources Limited (“CRL”).


  • Multiple high‐grade zones successfully intercepted within the Sheeted Vein System (SVS) in both of the first
  • These outstanding results are the best achieved to date at Redmoor and are almost all higher grades than the current high‐grade inferred resource (1.0% SnEq), highlighting increasing grade observed with depth in CRL holes drilled to date at Redmoor.
  • The above intercepts provide strong evidence of down‐dip extensions of the high‐grade zones within the SVS (up to 180m below existing intercepts) and also potentially extend this deeper mineralisation along‐strike.
  • Drilling of 3 further holes (CRD023, CRD024 and CRD025) of the Phase 1 program is now complete and these holes are in the process of being sampled and analysed. Visually, all three holes have intersected multiple zones of tungsten and copper mineralisation of a similar appearance to that in CRD021 and CRD022.
  • Drilling of the final 2 Phase 1 holes (CRD026 and CRD027) is now underway and is expected to be completed in early October.
  • Final results from the Phase 1 program are expected to be released in November.
  • Based on the outstanding Phase 1 results to date, CRL’s shareholders, NAE and SML, are reviewing plans to undertake additional drilling to further expand the size of the high‐grade resource and at increasing the level of confidence of a portion of the resource to an Indicated Mineral Resource classification. These are prerequisites to commencing a Pre‐Feasibility Study in 2019.

NAE Managing Director Gary Fietz commented: “These results have exceeded our expectations and
continue to demonstrate the potential for a larger higher‐grade resource extending to depth and
increasing in grade with depth at Redmoor. Based on the outstanding results to date from the Phase 1
program, we expect to be providing an update within a month on the additional drilling plans being prepared by CRL which will pave the way for commencement of a PFS in 2019”.

Honey Fair 2018

Callington will be buzzing on Wednesday 3rd  October 10.00am – 7.00pm

Honey Fair is a free community event with something for everyone. This year is promised to be bigger and better than ever with even more stalls, so bee sure to come along and have some fun!

As usual we have a large street fair full of goods perfect for Christmas presents for all the family and Rowlands Fair offers  fun for everyone.  In the Town Hall the bee keepers have a selection of wonderful local honey products as well as live bees!

The local schools have been busy creating pictures for our children’s art competition and their wonderful entries can be seen in the Town Hall from 9.00am to 7.00pm. Why not stop off for a drink while visiting all the stalls inside the hall, our teas with the bees is always popular. Around the Town our shop window competition is on the theme of inventions that changed the world.

There will be live music during the day and early evening on our street stage.

Please note that the whole of New Road and the car park will be closed to traffic on Honey Fair day. Alternative parking is available at the Saltash Road free car park and the recreation field.  There is also a FREE park and ride from St Mellion International Resort.

All money raised will go to Lions Charities.

It’s going to be a great day, and we would love to see you there.

Callington Carnival Saturday 8th September 2018

With a host of committed entries to the Carnival already received, the 2018 Callington Carnival promises to be one to remember, so do make sure that Saturday 8th September is firmly in your diary and that you are out and about in town to enjoy the spectacle.

As ever, the main procession will leave the Saltash Road Car Park at 4.30pm, this year moving down Saltash Road to the traffic lights and then turning left into Fore Street, which will give a much better view as the parade approaches the town centre. It will then continue along Liskeard Road as far as the museum and then turn left into Westover and come out at the primary school, to turn right and return to the car park. In essence the route has been reversed and also slightly shortened, to allow for easier participation for people of all ages and abilities.

If you live along the route, please make sure that cars are not parked on the road during this time – and if you use the Saltash Road car park, please remove your car/van for the entire day on the Saturday to allow for easy access for floats and the setting up of the parade. It should be available for normal use after 6.00pm

There is still plenty of time to make an entry yourself, whether it be on a float, as a commercial vehicle to promote your business or organisation, or as a walking entry. We would ask vehicle entries to enrol at least 48 hours before the start, but walking entries can be made on the day.

In the past, there has never been an official theme for entries, but this year there is a suggested guideline of “Centenaries” or “Anniversaries” as 2018 marks a number of historical milestones. Nevertheless, have no fear, other entries will be warmly welcomed!

There is a surprise extra procession of at least 20 vehicles which will precede the main parade so make sure you are out and about in plenty of time to enjoy the fun.



Callington Honey Fair 2018

Wednesday 3rd October 2018

Following the success of a more family friendly Honey Fair last year, Callington Lions are continuing the same theme for this year.

Traditionally, Callington’s annual Honey Fair has something for everyone with the Streets filled with a variety of stalls displaying local and national produce.

In addition, this year there will be family entertainment including clowns, animals to pet, face painting, live music on a bigger stage and much, much more.

It will be extended into the evening with street entertainment for all the family to enjoy, including Rowland’s Fun Fair.

This is ‘Bee-sides’ the favourites of the Cornwall Bee Keepers displays, with their live bees and honey products, ‘Teas with the Bees’ and Children’s Art Competition. Don’t forget you can follow the trail of the Honey Fair Shop window displays, where the theme this year is ‘My Favourite Book’.

If you are a charity or stall holder it is still not too late to book your place, please see:  or Telephone: 0844 963 2446

CRL Exploration Drilling Update

An update on the current drilling campaign:

  1. The new drilling company for this year’s drilling campaign is called Priority Drilling, they are experts in deeper drilling as we are doing at the moment
  2. Priority have recruited two local lads, one of whom was used last year by the contractor last year, Energold. One of the local lads used by Energold last year has been working overseas for them in Africa and Europe
  3. Drilling is only carried out by day. The first hole is nearly complete. A second drill rig has arrived on site and commenced drilling last week so that the work can be carried out quickly
  4. We have added sound reducing blankets around the rigs as well as bales, this has been successful so far in minimising noise levels.
  5. Any issues contact Jeff Harrison mob: 07403568770
