Mining News Update

Redmoor Resource Update – February 2019

Redmoor Resource Update Delivers: Inferred Mineral Resource Tripled and Grade Increased by 17%. New Age Exploration Limited (ASX:NAE) is pleased to announce the results of an updated mineral resource estimate for its Redmoor Tin-Tungsten Project in the UK, undertaken through its 50% owned joint venture vehicle, Cornwall Resources Limited (“CRL”). The updated Mineral Resource Estimate has been completed by external consultants Geologica (UK), following the completion of CRL’s successful 12-hole 2018 diamond drilling program, aimed at expanding the Redmoor resource.


  • Updated Inferred Mineral Resource of 11.7 Mt @ 0.56% WO3, 0.16% Sn, 0.50 % Cu (1.17% Sn Eq or 0.82% WO3 Eq)3 defined within parallel high-grade zones within the Sheeted Vein System (SVS) using a break even cut-off grade of 0.45% Sn Eq1.
  • This represents a tripling of the contained metal (now 137kt Sn Eq) compared with the previous March 2018 Mineral Resource estimate (45kt Sn Eq).
  • The 1.17% Sn Eq updated Inferred Mineral Resource grade, reported at a 0.45% break-even cut-off grade, is 17% higher than the previous March 2018 Mineral Resource estimate (4.5Mt @ 1.0% Sn Eq).
  • Included within the Inferred Mineral Resource is 10.2Mt at 1.26% Sn Eq at a 0.65% Sn Eq total cost cut-off grade, reinforcing the potential to economically mine the resource.
  • Continuity of the SVS which hosts the high-grade zones now confirmed over a strike length in excess of 1,000 m and for some 650 m down dip. Ore body geometry appears likely to be amenable to underground mining.
  • Redmoor now ranks as the 2nd highest grade undeveloped tin or tungsten Mineral Resource in the world on a grade basis.
  • On a contained metal basis, the Redmoor Mineral Resource now ranks the (No. 1) largest undeveloped tin or tungsten underground mining project in the world.
  • The majority of the Redmoor deposit remains open down-dip and to the west, where an Exploration Target has been defined in addition to the resource.
  • Initial metallurgical testwork program underway at Wardell Armstrong International, Cornwall.
  • Mining study to commence shortly aimed at identifying optimal project development path.
  • CRL’s shareholders will then consider the next steps in the work program aimed at advancing the project towards PFS completion.

NAE Director Joshua Wellisch commented “The updated Redmoor Inferred Mineral Resource further establishes the project as a deposit of global significance. The 1.17% Sn Eq resource grade places the project in an outstanding competitive position relative to other new tin and tungsten projects around the world. The result of the resource update is consistent with the increased grades seen through the 2018 drill program and provides an extremely strong base on which the project will be advanced from this year”.

Mining News Update

Outstanding Conclusion to 2018 Redmoor Drilling Programme

The Redmoor Drilling Programme has been completed for 2018. The last rig was demobilised from the site on the 12th December. Commenting, Peter Wale, Executive Director, Strategic Minerals and Director, CRL, said:

These impressive assay results show great scope to increase both the resource tonnage and grade at Redmoor. We anticipate this update and the expected resource upgrade will add further support to the renaissance of mining in Cornwall.

“The Board is delighted by the performance of the CRL team, which has delivered a 2018 outcome which has surpassed expectations. While pleased with the manner in which the programme was run on time and within budget, the level of success in targeting mineralisation is a testament to CRL’s geological model and the team’s theories on the anticipated continuation of mineralisation in high-grade zones within the SVS both at depth and along-strike.

“It is also pleasing to note that the Board’s long-term view on the impact of supply and demand factors on tin prices has been reflected in the recent recovery in tin prices, which are now above $20,000 per tonne.

“2019 is anticipated to be a watershed year for SML – this update from Redmoor sets the tone for what the Board expects to be a year of substantial progress.”


  • All holes in the 2018 programme successful with most surpassing internal expectations, indicating a high likelihood of a substantially expanded Mineral Resource.
  • Weighted average tin equivalent grade for full programme 81% higher than current Mineral Resource, arising from significant intercepts of the high-grade zones within the SVS.
  • High grade intercepts of up to 26.20%, 12.45% and 10.52% tin equivalent (SnEq).
  • Includes tin (individual metal) grades of up to 5.13% Sn (CRD029; 366.61 – 367.61 m).
  • Latest holes represent some of the highest-grade intercepts to date, consistent with the last update on 27 November 2018.
  • Full 2018 drill programme successfully completed on time, under budget, and with a clean safety and environmental record.
  • Updating of Mineral Resource Estimate commenced, and results are expected in Q1 2019.
  • CRL received a £138,000 Research and Development refund from HMRC on 3 January 2019.

Market Stalls Initiative

A new sub-committee has recently been formed to consider the possibility of purchasing market stalls and equipment to aid a market stall initiative.  The Town Council has secured the finances to purchase such equipment in order to get the idea established but in order to move forward they need to ascertain if it is viable and if there is enough community support to guarantee the longevity of the project.

An inaugural meeting has been scheduled for next week, Tuesday 29th January in the Council Chamber at 6.30pm.  We would like to invite traders and residents to attend a public session at the start of the meeting to put forward constructive thoughts and ideas.

The committee will then use this information to develop the idea further.

Please come along and let us know your thoughts and suggestions. We look forward to seeing you.

Allotments available

Take on an allotment and grow your own fresh fruit and vegetables.

For just £2.50 per month (paid annually) you could be growing your own fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs at a very low cost. Not only will you and your family will benefit from eating healthy food that you have grown yourself, you will be enjoying the benefits of being out in the fresh air and meeting people with a like minded interest.

If you are interested in taking on an allotment, please contact the Town Council office on 01579 384039 or email
