Sovereign Metals Limited (Company) is pleased to advise that an updated Company Presentation is available to download from the Company’s website at: http://sovereignmetals.com.au/company-presentations/.
Sovereign Metals Ltd, (ASX:SVM, AIM:SVML) declared a new record after delivering an updated mineral resource estimate (MRE) of 1.8 billion tonnes. This confirms that the Kasiya Rutile Deposit in Malawi is both the largest rutile deposit ever discovered and the second-largest flake-graphite deposit.
- Kasiya confirmed as Tier 1
- New JORC resource 3x previous estimate
- Largest rutile discovery ever made
- 2nd largest flake graphite deposit in the world
Sovereign’s Managing Director Dr Julian Stephens commented: It is a really remarkable achievement by our team to have made the largest natural rutile discovery ever in just two years since initial identification. The JORC MRE of this scale and grade is clearly highly strategic, Tier 1 and of global significance in a market where natural rutile is in extreme supply deficit.
The step-change in scale will now allow us to examine potentially higher-grade throughput, increased production levels and a longer mine life in the upcoming Scoping Study update. The Company is targeting a large-scale, low carbon-footprint and environmentally sustainable natural rutile and graphite operation which will also positively impact the environmental footprint of titanium pigment and other industries, and provide a significant contribution to the economy of Malawi.”
