Excelsior Mining ernennt ehemaligen Freeport-Manager als Projekt-Manager für Gunnison in Arizona

Kupfer-Projektentwickler Excelsior Mining (V.MIN) verstärkt das erstklassige Management-Team mit einer weiteren Branchengröße:

Excelsior Hires Project Manager for Gunnison Copper Project

July 21, 2016 

Excelsior Mining Corp. (TSX-V: MIN) (FSE: 3XS) (OTCQX: EXMGF) ("Excelsior" or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the immediate appointment of Robert Washnock to the position of Project Manager for the Gunnison Copper Project in Arizona. Mr. Washnock will work with Excelsior’s management team to help plan and organize all aspects of the Gunnison Copper Project, including mine design, procurement, construction, start-up and commissioning; he will also assist management with the care and maintenance operations at the Johnson Camp Mine (JCM). He has direct experience with in-situ copper recovery mining, and his hiring comes as Excelsior prepares for the anticipated commencement of commercial production in 2018.

Mr. Washnock brings a wealth of copper mining experience specific to all aspects of mine production management. He has extensive expertise in the areas of solvent extraction electrowinning (SX-EW) plant operations, electrorefining, electro-metallurgy/chemistry, copper leach kinetics and environmental regulatory compliance. The vast majority of his 40-year career has centered on SX-EW copper recovery projects in Arizona.

Mr. Washnock has held managerial positions with Freeport McMoRan Mining Company since 2008. Most recently, he was the Manager of Leach Optimization at the Safford Technology Center, with primary emphasis on the Safford Mine and Morenci Mine leach operations. From 2009 to 2012, he was the Manager of the Hydrometallurgical Division at Freeport McMoRan’s Bagdad SX-EW facilities, where he was responsible for the production of high-grade copper cathode. From 2008-2009 he was responsible for high-grade cathode production at Freeport McMoRan’s Tyrone Operations. As General Manager for the Lisbon Valley Mining Company, from 2004-2008, he successfully developed, designed, constructed and started-up a greenfields SX-EW copper operation. From 1996 to 2004 he was the SX-EW Operations Manager for the Silver Bell Solvent Extraction Electrowinning Project.

From 1991 to 1994 he was the Manager of Leaching & SX-EW Operations for Magma Copper Company’s Pinto Valley Mining Division. In this role he was responsible for the production of high-grade cathode, including copper recovery from in-situ leaching operations.

Commenting on this news, Stephen Twyerould, President and CEO, said, “We are very pleased to add a mining executive of Robert Washnock’s calibre to our team. Our project is certain to benefit from his extensive skillset including his previous experience with in-situ copper mining. His appointment demonstrates the ability of the Gunnison Copper Project to attract industry leaders to what we believe will be the next copper mine built in the United States.”

Rio Tinto steigert Eisenerz-, Bauxit- und Aluminium-Produktion, bestätigt Förderziele für 2016

Minengigant Rio Tinto (RIO) verfehlt im 2. Quartal 2016 leicht die Produktionserwartungen der Analysten in der wichtigen Eisenerzsparte. Im Hinblick auf das gesamte Fördervolumen des Konzerns steht jedoch kein unbedeutendes Wachstum zu Buche. Weiter bestätigt Rio Tinto die Produktionsziele für 2016 und unterstreicht den Fokus auf die Maximierung des freien Cashflows und der Profitabilität:

Rio Tinto FY iron ore guidance unchanged

Rio Tinto has maintained its 2016 guidance for iron ore shipments at 350 million tonnes after lifting June quarter volumes by six per cent from a year ago, helped by expanded infrastructure and unwinding of stocks in Western Australia.

The world's second largest iron ore producer said it shipped 82.2 million tonnes from its main Pilbara operations in the three months ending June 30, taking total first half shipments to 158.9 million tonnes.

Quarterly production of the steelmaking ingredient was up eight per cent to 80.9 million tonnes, giving it 160.8 million tonnes of output in the first half of the year.

"We continue to focus on value and maximising cash flow from our assets, through both commercial and operational excellence while maintaining capital discipline," newly-appointed chief executive Jean Sebastien Jacques said.

While the quarterly numbers are an improvement over last year, they are nearly similar to the first quarter, which had been marred by weather disruptions. That means the miner will have to significantly lift production in the remaining two quarters to meet its full year guidance.

Rio expects to ship 330 million tonnes this year from its operations in Western Australia, and another 20 million tonnes from its Canadian facilities. It had trimmed its 2017 guidance of 350 million by up to 20 million tonnes in April because of delays in the AutoHaul driverless trains project in the Pilbara.

Iron ore, the company's key export, is currently trading around $US56 a tonne, but has still lost more than two thirds from its peak value.

Thermal coal production in the quarter was up six per cent to 4.3 million tonne
s, while hard coking coal production was down 14 per cent to 1.80 million tonnes.

Bauxite production jumped 13 per cent from a year ago to 12.07 million tonnes, while aluminium production rose 11 per cent to 911,000 tonnes.

The company has maintained its annual guidance for coal, bauxite, aluminium and copper production..

Rick Rule & Amir Adnani - Part 1 - Leverage to Gold: Acquiring 'Ounces in the Ground'

By: Sprott US Media


In the lead up to the Sprott Vancouver Natural Resource Symposium from July 26th-29th, Sprott’s Thoughts is excited to present to its subscribers exclusive interviews with the conference’s Platinum Sponsors. The Platinum Sponsors represent the premier companies in the resource space, and Sprott has invested meaningfully in all of them. We are proud to be able to connect our clients with our portfolio companies directly, and hope these interviews will help both to pave the way for a successful conference experience for all of our clients joining us in Vancouver, and to best inform all of our Sprott’s Thoughts subscribers on some world-class resource companies.

Rick Rule conducts our next interview with Amir Adnani, the founder of two companies invited to the conference, Brazil Resources Inc. and Uranium Energy Corp. As the head executive of both a uranium company and a gold acquisition and exploration company with projects spanning the Americas, Amir commands a strong view of the global stage, which gives him a unique perspective on the current state of the resource markets. Considering his purview over two companies, we thought it only appropriate to break his interview with Rick into two parts, with Part I describing Brazil Resources, the gold market, and what it takes to run a successful resource company. Part II is coming in a post that is soon to follow, and will highlight uranium, UEC, and the junior resource market.

Brazil Resources is Mr. Adnani’s gold company, with assets in Brazil, United States and Canada. Brazil Resources’ stock (BRI) has seen a large rebound in 2016, which is attributable to more than just a rising gold price. And as we’ve heard repeatedly over all our interviews these past weeks, Amir emphasizes the importance of the team. Brazil Resources has attracted Garnet Dawson as CEO and Paulo Pereira as President; the two professional geologists have combined 60 years of experiences working with majors and juniors in the Americas. They’ve also partnered with Mario Garnero, a founding director of BRI, and his firm Brasilinvest, who is one of the most prolific businessmen in the country.

He also credits the team’s shifting strategy over the past three years. Brazil Resources has been conscious about adding value and proactively fast tracking the most promising properties through the permitting process. Also, the Firm has recognized the shifting dynamics of gold exploration that occurred during the market downturn. Where Brazil Resources used to spend on exploration, they now prefer to spend to acquire already discovered ounces from distressed buyers. This strategic acquisition strategy has allowed Brazil Resources to unlock meaningful value, as they are acquiring already discovered ounces for a lower price than they could discover new ounces.
The management team has also been cautious in raising capital and maintaining a tight capital structure. Currently insiders control over 30% of the company, a high mark of alignment with other shareholders.

But in the current troubled markets, successful mining companies require management teams with well-informed views on the markets. Amir is cautiously optimistic on gold prices, but believes the market still has hurdles. Gold, he believes, is not yet in a bull market, but a recovering market with unprecedented actions fueling its rise: a third of the world’s government bonds are yielding negative interest rates, Brexit has rocked the developed world, and one of the most contested U.S. elections is in the offing. Gold is driven by pressures which affect other currencies, and can be an important factor in wealth creation and preservation. Uranium, by opposition, is a simpler story to tell. It is directly connected with demand for electricity generation, and has not had the benefit of a price resurgence, and it currently sits at a 10 year low.

Samsung visiert Investition in chinesischen Elektroauto-Hersteller an

Smartphone-Gigant Samsung steht einigen Gerüchten zufolge vor einer signifikanten Investition in den größten Elektroauto-Hersteller der Welt. Hierzu ein aktueller Bericht von Mining.com:

Samsung rumoured to invest half-a-billion in Chinese electric car company


Tesla 3. (Image source: Wikimedia Commons)

Samsung Electronics (KRX:005930) is looking to take the plunge into electric vehicle (EV) technology with a sizable investment into BYD Co., (HKG:1211) the world's largest electric car manufacturer.
The division of Samsung, one of the most important "chaebols", or conglomerates in South Korea, said investing in BYD, backed by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., (NYSE:BRK.A), is expected to bolster the South Korean company's semiconductor business for cars. Samsung Electronics is the largest maker of cellular phones and memory chips in the world.

Talks between the two companies have apparently been underway the last few days. Korea Economic Daily reported on Friday that Samsung Electronics is about to pull the trigger on a 3-billion yuan (US$450 million) investment in Shenzhen-based BYD for a 4% share of the company. However Samsung denies that report, saying that talks are still ongoing. BYD says the investment would most likely come in the form of a private placement.“It puts Samsung into the electric-vehicle subsystem supply chain for a key Chinese electric vehicle and battery manufacturer"

According to Bloomberg the likely deal came about "…after [Samsung's] affiliate was among foreign battery makers left off a list of suppliers approved by China, where sales of electric vehicles are surging and the government has sped up construction of charging points. The talks with BYD also add to the global trend of technology companies and automakers collaborating as car buyers increasingly demand more advanced powertrains and features that improve connectivity and safety." Example of notable partnerships include the contributions of Korean battery manufacturer LG to the Chevy Bolt, and Panasonic's $1.6 billion investment in luxury EV car maker Tesla's $5-billion lithium-ion battery Gigafactory in Nevada..

Gold Price Falls as both the Banks of England and Canada Held Rates Steady

§  Equity markets in the U.S. and Canada rose further this week, despite continued sluggish economic growth. Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 Index extended all-time highs on Thursday, prompting several money managers in the U.S. to issue caution that the rally could be short-lived, with suggestions that the global economy would continue to remain sluggish while concerns over the ramifications of the Brexit vote continued. While equity markets rallied, the price of gold fell during the week, falling as low as $1,320 on Thursday during intra-day trading. On Friday, a truck filled with weapons ploughed into a large crowd of spectators celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France, only eight months after the Paris attacks in November. The latest death toll at the time of publication was 84; however, despite the tragedy, markets remained relatively steady, with the S&P/TSX Composite index finishing 3.8% higher for the week. Following the attack, gold fell further before finishing at $1,329 per ounce on Friday. The lower gold price coincided with the Bank of England’s surprising decision to keep its key interest rate at 0.5%, while the Bank of Canada also kept its interest rate on hold. Meanwhile, silver (↓0.9%) and platinum (↓0.8%) were also down, finishing at $20.10 and $1,089 per ounce respectively. Base metals rallied during the week, with copper leading the way, gaining 4.1% to finish at $2.22 per pound, while nickel (↑3.9%), lead (↑3.04%) and zinc (↑2.82%) each finished at $4.64, $0.85 and $1.00 per pound respectively. WTI prices rose after last week’s heavy losses, up 1.2% for the week. Finally, the UxC Weekly Spot Price of uranium fell 5% during the week, as the Broker average price closed at $25.13 per pound on Friday.
