RNC Minerals moves closer to Dumont project construction

Jackson Chen | July 11, 2019

RNC Minerals (TSX: RNX) filed on Thursday the updated NI 43-101 technical report for its Dumont nickel-cobalt joint venture project in Canada’s Quebec province, taking another step closer to advancing the project to construction.

RNC Minerals owns 28% of the Dumont JV, and is the project’s sole manager. The remaining interest is held by Arpent Inc., a subsidiary of Waterton Precious Metals Fund II Cayman LP and Waterton Mining Parallel Fund Offshore Master LP.

The Dumont deposit, located near the town of Amos in the Abitibi mining camp of Québec, would be “one of the largest base metal mines in Canada and one of the top five sulphide nickel producers globally once in production,” said RNC Minerals CEO Mark Selby in a media release.

Selby added that Dumont will be “one of the only large scale fully permitted nickel-cobalt projects” that could satisfy the significant growth in battery metal demand by the electric vehicle sector.

Based on the technical report, previously released on May 30, the project contains the second largest nickel reserve in the world, at 2.8 million tonnes (6.1 billion pounds) of contained nickel, and the ninth largest cobalt reserve with 110,000 tonnes (243 million pounds) of contained cobalt. The study estimates an after-tax net present value (NPV) of $920 million and 15.4% after-tax internal rate of return (IRR).

Initial nickel production in concentrate is pegged at 33,000 tonnes per annum, ramping up to 50,000 tonnes in the phase 2 expansion, with production of around 1.2 million tonnes (2.6 billion pounds) of nickel in concentrate, over a 30-year life.

In addition to Dumont, RNC is also advancing its 100% owned Beta Hunt gold mine located in Western Australia. Last month, the company announced that it had substantially boosted the mineral resource on the Western Flanks zone of the mine, highlighted by a nearly five-fold increase in the measured and indicated category.

Sienna Resources kicks off drilling at battery metals project in Sweden

Jackson Chen | October 4, 2019

Vancouver-based Sienna Resources (TSXV: SIE) has begun drilling at its flagship Slättberg nickel-copper-cobalt project in Sweden. The company announced Friday that Arctic Drilling AS of Norway has been selected as the contracted driller to lead this multi-hole drill program.

“It has been well over a year since our last drill program and drill results are what the market wants to see. The work programs over the past few years have enabled us to razor focus the drill program into the most highly prospective locations for nickel,” Sienna Resources president Jason Gigliotti commented.

He also noted that the strong nickel price had made it an opportune time to start drilling for the battery metal.

Data gathered from the 2018 drill program, in addition to downhole electromagnetic surveys and modern sampling and geophysical work, had provided multiple new high-priority drill targets. The 2019 work program is fully funded by cash on hand, says the company.

Slättberg, located 25 km northwest of Falun, Sweden, is a historical mining camp hosting nickel-copper-cobalt rich massive sulphide mineralization.

The project contains drill-defined massive sulphide mineralization that extends to about 100 m in depth, and remains open for expansion at depth and along strike. It is accessible year round, with nearby rail, power and five smelters in the Nordic region. At least 16 historical mines are located on the property, with operations dating back to the late 1800s.

Sienna Resources’ stock surged by over 22% on Friday morning. The company’s market capitalization is C$3.1 million.

L'Indonésie qui a imposé une interdiction de vente de minerai de Nickel pour imposer la transformation en métal sur place devrait voir arriver des milliards de dollars d'investissements Chinois.

https://www.mining.com/web/indonesia-se ... -minerals/
.....
Indonesia expects the export ban to lure about $20 billlion in fresh investment into nickel and related projects by 2024. Several overseas firms are planning battery-grade nickel facilities in Indonesia, including China’s Tsingshan Holding Group Co. and PT Vale Indonesia, a unit of the Brazilian mining giant. Investments have totaled about $9 billion so far, Pandjaitan said.

Indonesia last month jolted the metals market by expediting a ban on nickel ore exports by two years to force miners to build smelters to locally process the ore used in stainless steel and lithium-ion battery.

Australia’s Poseidon Nickel to restart Black Swan project as nickel prices surge

Reuters | September 6, 2019

Image

Poseidon Nickel Ltd, buoyed by a recent surge in nickel prices, said on Friday it would restart operations at its Black Swan project in Western Australia.

Prices of Nickel surged this week after Indonesia, the world’s biggest nickel ore producer, said it would stop exports from the start of next year, two years earlier than it initially indicated.

The “improved market dynamics” provided a price foundation to support a restart of the Black Swan operations, Poseidon said in a statement.

The nickel-focused miner, backed by billionaire Andrew Forrest, said the restart would take several months and may cost A$2.9 million ($2 million).

“We are now entering an important and critical time for Poseidon aided with tailwinds from improving, sustained increased nickel prices,” said David Riekie, who was appointed interim chief executive officer on Monday.

Goldman Sachs said in a note on Sunday it expected London nickel prices to reach $20,000 per tonne in three months due to the ban. Prices currently sit at $17,500.

Le Nickel à un plus haut de 5 ans :

Le prix du nickel à son plus haut depuis 2014


31 AOÛT 2019

Le cours du nickel continue de grimper. À la bourse de Londres, vendredi, le prix du nickel a augmenté de 1,7 % pour atteindre 16 730 $ la tonne, son plus haut niveau depuis décembre 2014. Plusieurs raisons expliquent cette hausse, dont la possible fermeture d’une usine de nickel en Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée.

Un déversement de déchets toxiques dans une baie de la Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée affole le marché des métaux. L’usine de traitement du nickel Metallurgical Corp of China fait l’objet de plusieurs plaintes et risque la fermeture.

Mais selon un expert en industrie minière et professeur à l'Université Laurentienne, Jean-Charles Cachon, le prix du nickel avait déjà augmenté de 50 % depuis le début de l’année en raison de la diminution des stocks officiels et de l’incertitude qui règne autour des exportations indonésiennes de nickel.

L’Indonésie, qui est un producteur clé dans le secteur, est sur le point de présenter une interdiction d’exporter ce minerai, explique-t-il.

Vers une augmentation de la production canadienne?

Cette augmentation du prix du nickel pourrait profiter à la région du Grand Sudbury, en Ontario, qui exploite plusieurs gisements de nickel.

Les producteurs de Sudbury dépensent en ce moment plusieurs centaines de millions par an pour développer de nouvelles mines tout électriques de grandes profondeurs, donc plus le prix grimpe, plus ça va permettre de rembourser rapidement les investissements qui ont été faits, explique Jean-Charles Cachon.

Selon le professeur, une hausse éventuelle de la production canadienne de nickel ne provoquera toutefois pas d'importantes créations d’emplois, mais ça va probablement accélérer la mécanisation et le passage au tout électrique, estime-t-il.

Très forte augmentation de la demande de Nickel pour les batteries.
EV Makers Have A New Favorite Metal

By MINING.com - Jul 12, 2019

Battery metals tracker Adamas Intelligence says electric vehicle manufacturers deployed 57 percent more nickel in passenger EV batteries in May this year, compared to 2018.

The Toronto-based research company, which tracks EV registrations and battery chemistries in more than 80 countries says the nickel metal equivalent used in lithium-ion batteries (primarily in the form of nickel sulphate) increased by 69 percent whereas the amount used in nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries (primarily in the form of nickel hydroxide and AB5 nickel-REE alloy) increased by 26 percent.

The deployment of nickel also outpaced the growth of the EV market overall. In May this year, total passenger EV battery capacity deployed globally was 48 percent higher year-on-year, according to Adamas data.

La production sud-africaine de nickel sur une pente descendante depuis 2015

Agence Ecofin 9 mai 2019

En 2018, l’Afrique du Sud a enregistré une baisse de plus de 10 % de sa production de nickel. Le pays a produit 43 000 tonnes du métal contre 48 000 tonnes selon le « Commodity Markets Outlook » de la Banque mondiale publiée en avril dernier.

Depuis son pic de 57 000 tonnes en 2015, la production sud-africaine de nickel n’a plus jamais été à la hausse. Ce ralentissement peut s’expliquer par la chute des cours des matières premières, survenue cette année-là, qui a poussé les compagnies minières à suspendre ou fermer l’année suivante certaines de leurs opérations.

En outre, le secteur minier sud-africain traverse depuis plusieurs mois l’une des plus importantes crises de son histoire. Elle est confrontée à des problèmes allant de la hausse des coûts (électricité, salaires, infrastructures) aux troubles sociaux, revendications ouvrières et licenciements dans les mines.

La nation arc-en-ciel est toujours le leader de la production de nickel en Afrique, devant Madagascar.

Après une forte baisse vers la fin de l’année passée, le prix du nickel a augmenté de 8,3 % au premier trimestre 2019 en grande partie à cause des inquiétudes suscitées par les perspectives du plus grand producteur mondial, Vale.

Selon la Banque mondiale, il devrait continuer de grimper pendant le reste de l’année, mais demeurera inférieur à la moyenne enregistrée en 2018.

A moyen et à long terme, la demande de nickel devrait augmenter à mesure que la fabrication de véhicules électriques augmentera et que la composition des batteries changera pour utiliser davantage de nickel.

Caterpillar reveals plans for the R1700 XE, its first electric underground loader

US construction equipment company Caterpillar has unveiled its first electric underground loader, which will use lithium ion batteries.

The new LHD vehicle, the R1700 XE, will be based on the R1700, a 15-tonne loader that was itself a step towards cleaner operations when it was launched in 2018. The original R1700 was 34% more fuel efficient than previous Caterpillar loaders. The XE will incorporate a number of the R1700’s features, including a 65% increase in lift force over previous models.

Because it will use lithium ion batteries, this model sees a ten-fold decrease in total energy costs and an eight-fold drop in heat generated, compared to entirely the diesel-powered R1300. The XE will use a standalone fast charging system that will allow for onboard charging of the batteries.

“For underground mining specifically, this electrification experience was reinforced by the development of a proof of concept machine,” said Caterpillar in a statement. “Caterpillar converted a conventional diesel Cat LHD into a battery electric platform.

“Both the loader and charging system saw substantial testing at Caterpillar’s Peoria proving grounds, and that was followed by weeks of operation and testing at a customer’s mine in Canada.”

The loader was tested at Glencore’s Sudbury nickel mine in Ontario, which mined more than two million tonnes of nickel ore in 2018 across two operations, demonstrating its effectiveness at a large-scale project. The technology could be of interest to Glencore, which is under pressure from shareholders, including the Church of England, to cut down on its carbon emissions, following a year in which it produced close to 130m tonnes of coal.
