Global Mining Review,

Solaris Resources Inc. received approximately C$30.4 million from the exercise of common share purchase warrants.

Further warrant expirations occur in 2H22 and 1H23 and, if exercised in full, would generate additional proceeds of C$54.1 million. Of these, approximately 63% of the remaining outstanding warrants are held by management, and primarily by the company’s executive chairman, Richard Warke.

Daniel Earle, President and CEO, commented: “With last year’s intensive resource drilling program at Warintza Central having established a voluminous mineral resource estimate and a robust starter pit, we are now directing our efforts towards immediate high-impact drilling aimed at expanding the starter pit into open extensions of near-surface high-grade mineralization at Warintza Central, expanding the minimal-drilling discovery at Warintza East and testing the potential of the nearby discovery at Warintza East. Warintza West.

DARLINGTON, SC (AP) — After William Byron hugged him to the wall in a final restart, Joey Logano knew what he would do if given the chance to regain the lead.

Logano hit Byron from behind on the penultimate lap to win at Darlington Raceway on Sunday. Byron hit the wall at turn three and Logano took his first win of the season and his first on the track “Too hard to tame.”

“There’s something to be said for an angry racing driver”, said Logano, who broke a 40-race winless drought.

Logano, who started from pole, had one of the strongest cars all day and was in the lead coming out of the pits heading into a restart with 25 laps to go. But Byron, who started low, forced Logano into the wall and out of the lead.

“If someone is willing to do this to you, then the gloves are off”, Logan said.

Byron was unhappy with the maneuver, calling Logano a “you idiot” and one “imbecile” who ran others in dubious fashion throughout his career.

Darlington fans let the Team Penske driver know what they were thinking, booing the 2018 NASCAR champion when he got out of his car.

“I’ve been called many things, much worse than moron,” Logan said.

Byron, who signed a contract extension with Hendrick Motorsports, looked set to maintain his team’s dominant season in the final rounds. Instead, Logano broke a 40-race winless drought.

Tyler Reddick finished second followed by Justin Haley, Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliott, Christopher Bell, Michael McDowell, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Austin Dillon and Daniel Suarez.

Byron fell to 13th. He said the restart was just a close race and Byron didn’t deserve a hard hit to the rear bumper so close to the end.

“He hit me so hard he knocked the whole right side of the car down and sent me into the corner,” said Byron. “He’s just a moron. He can’t win a race, so he does it like that.

Logano led 108 of 293 laps and reached victory lane for the first time since winning on gravel at Bristol in 2021.

It was the first time the new Next Gen car had taken NASCAR’s oldest superspeedway and the results were mixed. The race was solid, although several of the top competitors did not last to the finish.

Defending NASCAR champion Kyle Larson sat out with engine failure after 112 laps. Former champions Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski were also absent long before the finish.

Odds on favorite?

Larson was the betting favorite to win for the first time at Darlington. But the defending Cup Series champion continued his bad luck at NASCAR’s oldest superspeedway. Larson, starting second, led 30 of the first 32 laps before spinning on lap 54 and crashing out on 29th.

Larson had worked his way into the top 10 at the start of stage two before returning to the pits where his crew blew the bonnet. They couldn’t get the car to start again – “I have, like, no power” Larson told them – and rolled it into the garage.

It’s been that kind of stretch for Larson, who has finished second in his last three races at Darlington. During a tire test here last month, Larson hit the wall twice at the start.

It was the fourth time in 12 races this season that Larson was out before the end.

“Shame,” said Larson. “But the good thing is that we were very quick.”

Parking spot

Kyle Busch’s day ended after he couldn’t avoid running into Brad Keselowski after the Roush Fenway runner tagged the wall just in front of Busch. A frustrated Busch drove his #18 car to pit road and left it there, walking in his trailer.

A tow truck had to hook up the Joe Gibbs Racing machine and move it to the garage. Busch had led 19 laps at the start of the race.

Busch was fined $50,000 by NASCAR last year when at the Southern 500 here he drove his damaged machine into the garage, knocking over several cones and causing people to quickly scatter in the way.

Busch was asked why he stopped where he did. “I just couldn’t make the corner” he replied.


The series moves to Kansas Speedway, where Kyle Busch is the defending event champion. Kyle Larson won the October race at Kansas.

the worker-hating capitalist experiment rumbles on http://www.mine3.net/the-worker-hating-capitalist-experiment-rumbles-on/ Sun, 08 May 2022 13:00:49 +0000 http://www.mine3.net/the-worker-hating-capitalist-experiment-rumbles-on/

This week marked 204 years since the birth of German philosopher Karl Marx. Much ink, controversy, and assertion has been spilled in decoding Marx’s views and positions on political economy over the years.

I won’t burden you with that except to say that Marx’s political project was to expand human freedom and fight oppression in all its forms.

History and the present teach us one thing: the lucrative mining sector is the poster child for exploitation where inequality has flourished for nearly 200 years in South Africa.

The sector has been the cornerstone of the South African economy for over a century. He helped build towns and villages. But we know all too well that the industry’s history is not rosy.

Many miners have been killed or seriously injured in mine accidents, and thousands have died of lung diseases brought on by working in enclosed spaces filled with coal dust. They are mostly black workers. The sector has historically played a significant role in expanding inequality that has made this country the most unequal society in the world.

Even today, the meager wages and poor conditions in which miners continue to work today in South Africa are a direct legacy of the early years of mining and apartheid. It’s as if the Freedom Day we commemorated last month was not for working people.

What has also been consistent is the sector’s blatant refusal to recognize the legions of workers who risk their lives and physical integrity extracting wealth from the belly of the earth – wealth that has made big cat CEOs fabulously rich. while the workers have to beg for peanuts. This is the face of mining in the country. It’s an ugly sight.

As I type this, workers at Sibanye-Stillwater have gone over three months without pay, simply for asking for a pay rise of R1,000 per month for the next three years. The mine wants to give its workers just R800, suggesting the workers are greedy. Good grace!
This is a company whose CEO Neal Froneman took home R300 million last year. His bonus consists of a base salary of R12.42 million, a cash bonus of R7.8 million and R264 million in additional share proceeds.

Froneman is just one of many fat cat CEOs, mostly white men, who continue to earn handsomely while their employees live hand to mouth.

Soaring commodity prices last year translated into lucrative profits for the mining industry. But this did not, by design, affect the average South African miner. Over the past century, companies have focused on designing performance metrics to justify increasing executive compensation levels.

The disgruntled North West workers who ousted President Cyril Ramaphosa last week operate not far from the Marikana mine in the country.
platinum belt where police shot dead 34 striking miners and seriously injured dozens more in 2012.

The Marikana Massacre revealed the extreme consequences of constantly paying low wages, while extracting vast mineral wealth from the earth.

It is a national disgrace that around some of the most valuable platinum deposits on the planet, poverty, underdevelopment and low wages continue to be a feature of this economy that dooms workers and their families. to generational poverty.

Our leaders always said we couldn’t afford to have another Marikana. But little has been done to ensure workers get their fair share of the wealth they produce under grueling conditions.

Sibanye workers, and generations before them, never asked or expected to be rich. All they ask for is a fair share of the wealth created by their labor.

For the capitalists, it is a battle for super profits and generous bonuses. For the workers, it is a fight for their rights as human beings.

South Africa cannot continue to hold the dubious distinction of being one of the countries with the most cavernous wage gap between big cats and typical workers. The road to economic freedom begins with paying workers well for the work they do. And the government cannot claim to be an honest bystander when workers in all industries continue to be exploited by multinational corporations.

Omniflex and AMOG receive funding from METS Ignited http://www.mine3.net/omniflex-and-amog-receive-funding-from-mets-ignited/ Wed, 04 May 2022 08:09:05 +0000 http://www.mine3.net/omniflex-and-amog-receive-funding-from-mets-ignited/

Omniflex and AMOG Consulting, which have collaboratively developed oversized Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) sensing instruments for the global mining industry, have received new funding from METS Ignited as part of a funding initiative from 2.5 million Australian dollars. The funding is intended to support companies that have successfully commercialized technologies under previous METS Ignited-funded projects in the mining equipment, technology and services (METS) sector.

Mines often work by blasting mine and pit faces with explosives, producing rubble of various shapes and sizes, ranging from small pebbles to meter-wide boulders. This is then loaded onto large haul trucks and transported to an ore crusher. When oversized rubble reaches the crusher, it can jam and damage it, halting production while blockages are cleared or parts are replaced.

Omniflex and AMOG have collaboratively developed IIoT instrumentation to enhance oversized sensing capabilities for the global mining industry. The system uses sensors to detect the size of ore rubble as it is loaded into haul trucks to be transported from the blast site to the crushing plant. This information is communicated wirelessly in real time to the driver, mining operations and/or remote data storage for further analysis.

“The sensors, jointly designed by AMOG and Omniflex, detect signals on board the truck when ore is dumped into the bin,” said David Celine, CEO of Omniflex. “Data is processed using machine learning techniques to estimate the size of rocks as they are dumped into the truck. This information is then communicated wirelessly through a gateway on the haul truck to the driver and operations. mining companies to inform them of the oversized ore load before the truck leaves after being loaded.

“The technology has demonstrated detection accuracy of over 80%, which is a big improvement over common detection methods that are estimated to be less than 5% accurate. Notably, the technology does not rely on visual sensing or cameras and therefore works in almost any condition. It’s also simple to modernize and expandable to many other high-value applications.

The creation of the initial technology was made possible by funds from the METS Ignited Collaborative Project. Based on the success of the first pilot projects, this new project aims to accelerate the company’s scale to meet global industry demand. This includes expanding production, testing capabilities, certification, enabling rapid adoption of this innovative digital technology.

Alianza Minerals: magnetic study completed on the Klondike Copper property, Colorado http://www.mine3.net/alianza-minerals-magnetic-study-completed-on-the-klondike-copper-property-colorado/ Mon, 02 May 2022 13:19:35 +0000 http://www.mine3.net/alianza-minerals-magnetic-study-completed-on-the-klondike-copper-property-colorado/

Vancouver, BC – TheNewswire – May 2nd2022 – Alianza Minerals Ltd. (“Alanza”) (TSXV: ANZ), (OTC: TARSF) and Cloudbreak Discovery Plc (“Cloudbreak”) (LSE: CDL) (there “Alliance”) are pleased to announce that their partner Allied Copper Corp. (“Allied”) (TSX-V: CPR) completed an airborne magnetic survey on the Klondike property (“Klondike”), located in southwestern Colorado, USA. A total of 213 linear kilometers of surveying was completed on the property to help prioritize drill targets for future campaigns. The Klondike property consists of 76 unpatented mining claims, a Colorado state exploration license and an exclusive right to a state lease.

The recently completed survey was conducted using a drone-mounted magnetometer collecting data at line spacings of 50 meters to provide a high-resolution data set to help target drilling to targets of the northeast fault, the west fault and the east fault. Data from the current program is being processed and results will be interpreted to identify potential structures and alterations associated with copper mineralization.

Allied Files Technical Report

Allied Copper recently filed National Instrument (“NI”) Technical Report 43-101 on SEDAR entitled “Technical Report on the Klondike Exploration Project, San Miguel County, Colorado, USA”. The report is available at www.sedar.com or on the Allied website at www.alliedcoppercorp.com.

About Klondike Property

The Klondike property is located approximately 25 kilometers south of Naturita, Colorado. This property is within the Paradox Copperbelt, which includes the Lisbon Valley mining complex. Numerous historic copper occurrences have been identified throughout the district, however, many have not been explored using modern exploration techniques.

A 2021 reconnaissance program including mapping, stream sediment sampling and rock sampling has been undertaken on the Klondike property to help define drill targets at the West Graben Fault and East Graben Fault targets . Rock sampling and mapping successfully extended the footprint of both targets and identified a new target named Northeast Fault. Sampling at the northeast fault returned 1.56% copper and 1.4 grams per tonne (“g/t”) silver in a 4.6 meter chip sample of bleached Jurassic sandstone, bitumen stained and weathered from the Saltwash member of the Morrison formation.

The copper-mineralized sandstones of the Northeast Fault target can be traced along the fault and out of it in the adjacent sandstones over an area 200 meters long by 100 meters wide before d be obscured under a gravel cover. Further anomalous copper, including 2.1 meters of 463 ppm copper, was encountered over a kilometer to the northwest, where the host structure and strata then appear under the same gravel cover.

In the Klondike, documented exploration for copper ceased in the 1960s and further exploration targeting uranium in the 1970s. Previous workers reported high-grade copper mineralization evidenced by results of 6, 3% copper and 23.3 g/t silver in outcrop. In addition to its high-grade potential, disseminated copper-silver mineralization has been observed which may be amenable to modern open pit mining with solvent electrowinning (“SXEW”) processing similar to the mining complex of the Lisbon Valley. Sediment-hosted copper deposits contribute significantly to global copper production, accounting for over 20% of the world’s copper supply each year.

The project is accessible by road year-round, traveling two kilometers of gravel road from the paved highway. The project includes 76 mineral claims on federal mineral rights managed by the BLM, in addition to an exploration license and an exclusive right to a state lease from the State of Colorado.

Deepender Deswal

Bhiwani, April 24

Two people, who were associated with mining and transport works in Dadam mining area, have been killed in separate accidents in the hills of Dadam village of Bhiwani district since last night. This is the second mishap this year as five workers were crushed to death after a landslide in the mining area on January 1.

Bhiwani Police Superintendent Ajit Singh Shekhawat told The Tribune today that according to available information, 65-year-old driver Bhim Singh from Dulheri village died last night and worker Sonu (24) was killed in the morning today while working at Dadam mining. area.

The SP said both incidents happened in the mining area. On the reasons for the accidents, he said: “The police are checking the facts on the circumstances of the death of two people. According to available information, Sonu died after being hit by a stone. At first glance, it looks like both died during the mining work,” he said.

Ved Pal Tanwar, a representative of the Goverdhan Mines company which holds the lease of the mining area, claimed that the incidents occurred outside the mining area assigned to the company.

He said that Bhim Singh fell from the vehicle which resulted in his death. Sonu had died after a tractor overturned in the Dadam mining hills, he claimed. He reiterated that both incidents occurred outside the mining area and that the victims were not employed by the mining company.

Meanwhile, a worker in the mining area complained to higher authorities about today’s mishap. In an emailed complaint, the worker said a boulder fell on the dumper, which resulted in the death of Bhim Singh at pit number 22. Sonu, who was a drill operator, was crushed to death when ‘a huge stone fell on him, he wrote.

A resident of the village of Dadam filed a complaint with the police requesting the registration of a criminal case against the mining company. Jaipal, a resident of Dadam village who owns farmland opposite Dadam mining area, alleged that the victim Sonu was working in pit number 12 of the mining area which is a dangerous area. He said Bhim Singh was crushed to death when a boulder fell on him in pit number 22.

Hundreds protest in Spain against redevelopment of Roman-era gold mine http://www.mine3.net/hundreds-protest-in-spain-against-redevelopment-of-roman-era-gold-mine/ Sun, 17 Apr 2022 19:06:23 +0000 http://www.mine3.net/hundreds-protest-in-spain-against-redevelopment-of-roman-era-gold-mine/

Their venture, however, faces opposition from the militant group Oro No, which has joined forces with other environmental initiatives as well as professional and community organizations, fishing groups, tourism associations, agricultural cooperatives and honey producers, among others.

Using the slogan ‘no to gold’, the protesters expressed concern about the impacts that mining would have on their way of life, the environment and traditional economic activities in the region. They also asked the local government to oppose the project.

Salave, however, also has backers.

Prior to the protest action, the Association for the Reindustrialization of Western Asturias (IDOA) issued a statement with 607 signatures from people supporting the mining project.

In the press release, Salave is presented as a project that would revive the region’s economy.

Ancient history

After the initial surface mining by the Romans, mining resumed at Salave in the mid-20th century, but it was mainly aimed at obtaining molybdenum in small local veins in a fairly superficial manner.

Although the mineralization includes other minerals and metals in varying concentrations, EMC says that due to its abundance, gold is what has generated significant interest from a technical and economic perspective.

It is estimated that in Roman times, between 2 and 6 million tons of rock were extracted at Salave, recovering between 5,000 and 7,000 kilograms of gold.

According to the EMC, for reasons that are not known exactly, but probably due to the difficulties of controlling the flow of water when they reached a certain depth in their works, the Romans abandoned the extraction of Salave.

Since then, there was no documented mining activity in the area until the 1940s when some minerals like molybdenum were mined for steelmaking.

In the 1960s, several companies specializing in mining research and development became interested in developing and verifying the mineralized continuity at depth that the Romans exploited on the surface.

Using geochemical, geophysical and direct prospecting techniques, the Salave mineralization model was reconstructed. Thus, its morphological, proximal, technical, environmental and economic viability was assessed.

Beyond the preliminary geochemical and geophysical studies, since the 1970s, nearly 500 boreholes of varying lengths and inclinations have been carried out in the Salave region, for a total of 65,000 meters.

The last drilling was carried out by Exploraciones Mineras del Cantábrico in 2018. Just over 2,000 meters have been drilled, with the aim of finalizing the previous drillings, confirming their results and facilitating the preparation of a feasibility study.

KGHM Mining Hub emerges as world’s largest silver mine http://www.mine3.net/kghm-mining-hub-emerges-as-worlds-largest-silver-mine/ Fri, 15 Apr 2022 05:24:26 +0000 http://www.mine3.net/kghm-mining-hub-emerges-as-worlds-largest-silver-mine/

KGHM Mining Hun, located in Poland, has become the largest silver mine in the world among the top ten silver miners, based on reported production for the year 2021, although the ranking excludes the Sindesar Khurd mine of Vedanta, located in India, according to reports from Kitco, a precious metals service provider.

According to the classifications, only about 30% of the annual supply comes from primary silver mines, while more than a third is produced in lead or zinc operations and another 20% in copper mines. The polymetallic ore deposits from which silver is recovered account for more than two-thirds of the world’s silver resources.

Among the top ten silver miners in the world, KGHM Polska Miedz produced 41.9 Moz of silver in 2021, making it the largest silver producing operation in the world. Payable silver production was higher compared to 2020 (43 Moz) due to an increase in the amount of silver in concentrate produced by the company.

The mining center of KGHM Polska Miedz has mines in Rudna, Polkowice-Sieroszowice and the primary copper mines of Lubin, all located in Poland. In addition to copper, it is also an important source of silver, gold and other metals.

Newmont’s Penasquito polymetallic mine in Mexico is second only to KGHM Polska Miedz, consisting of two open pits – Peñasco and Chile Colorado – containing gold, silver, lead and zinc.

Penasquito is an open pit mine that uses a flotation and milling process, in two 50,000 ton per day sulphide processing lines and a 30,000 ton per day high pressure milling circuit. Penasquito has increased its silver production by 13% in 2021 to 31.4 Moz and ranks second in the list of largest silver producing operations in the world.

The Dukat silver mine comes third in the list. This mine is one of Polymétal’s first and original assets. It is the largest primary silver operation in Russia and Polymetal’s flagship operation. Silver production at Dukat increased by 3%, from 18.2 million ounces in 2020 to 18.8 million in 2021.

The Antamina mine ranks fourth, being a large copper-zinc-molybdenum-silver-lead operation, located in the Andes 270 kilometers north of Lima, Peru. The Antamina mine produced 18.2 million ounces of silver in 2021. The deposit is located at an average altitude of 4,200 meters. The owners are BHP Billiton plc (33.75%), Glencore plc (33.75%), Teck (22.5%) and Mitsubishi Corporation (10%).

“The mine is an open-pit mine, a truck or a shovel. A 302 kilometer slurry concentrate pipeline transports copper and zinc concentrates to the port for shipment to smelters and refineries around the world.


The San Julián silver-gold mine in Mexico is Fresnillo’s flagship project, becoming the fifth largest mine in the ranking. The mine produced 16.8 million ounces of silver in 2021. “The geological potential identified in the area so far may be sufficient to establish a new mining district in the future,” according to Kitco.com

The San Julián mine has two plants: a dynamic leach plant to process ore from the seams; and a 6,000 tpd capacity flotation plant to process disseminated body ore. Silver production for the full year increased 26% from the full year 2020 due to higher than expected ore grade.

Mexico is home to major silver mines

South32’s Cannington silver-lead-zinc mine in northwest Queensland was the sixth-largest mine in 2021. The mine was “a longtime undisputed leader” in silver production, with a record 44 million ounces of silver reached in 2005.

Since then, silver production has dropped significantly due to falling silver grades, and Cannington has finally lost its number one position in recent years. In calendar year 2021, silver production from the mine increased by 24% to 14.4 Moz.

Located in Zacatecas, Mexico, 8 km southwest of the Fresnillo mine, Saucito is one of Fresnillo’s most important assets. The silver mine is the seventh largest in the world.

Silver production of 12.4 Moz for the year 2021 decreased by 19.9% ​​compared to the year 2020 due to a decrease in the volume of ore processed and a lower ore grade due to mainly problems of instability and the negative impact of labor reform.

The Fresnillo mine is one of the oldest continuously operating mines in the world, ranking eighth among the world’s leading silver producers. It is remarkable that mining operations have been recorded at the site as early as 1554. The mine’s silver production for the year 2021 decreased by 8.2% due to a volume of ore processed and a in inferior ores.

The Collahuasi mine is a large copper mine located at high altitude in northern Chile in the Tarapaca region, being the ninth largest mine in the world according to the results of the year 2021. The Collahuasi mine produced 9.6 million ounces of silver in 2021.

The mine is operated by a joint venture Compañía Minera Doña Inés de Collahuasi, in which Anglo American plc and Glencore each own 44% while the remaining 12% is held by Japan Collahuasi Resources BV.

Greens Creek was the tenth largest mine in the world, producing at 9.2 Moz in 2021. Greens Creek Mine, 100% owned and operated by Hecla, in Southeast Alaska, is one of the mines most important and least expensive primary silver in the world.

The Greens Creek ore body contains silver, zinc, gold and lead and is within Admiralty Island National Monument, an environmentally sensitive area. Greens Creek is an underground mine that produces approximately 2,100 to 2,300 tonnes of ore per day.

Most of the top ten silver mines are located in Mexico (5 out of 10), indicating huge resource potential in the country, while the remaining mines are located in Alaska, Russia, Peru, Chile and Poland .

RPMGlobal expands its cloud offering with the launch of a RaaS product http://www.mine3.net/rpmglobal-expands-its-cloud-offering-with-the-launch-of-a-raas-product/ Tue, 12 Apr 2022 19:04:23 +0000 http://www.mine3.net/rpmglobal-expands-its-cloud-offering-with-the-launch-of-a-raas-product/

Global RPM launched another Software as a Service (SaaS) offering that gives mining companies the ability to perform mining reserve calculations in a cloud environment. Called Reservation as a Service (RaaS), the new software follows the success of Transport as a Service (HaaS).

Users can upload block models and multi-story pit designs in a variety of formats directly to the cloud. After providing some basic information such as material definitions, bench configuration, and desired block size, the service will break designs down into mining shapes, returning a 3D solid of each block and a detailed breakdown of the reserves these contain. forms. RaaS leverages the powerful reserve modeling capability of RPM Global’s Reserver product, which has become the industry standard for resource estimation over the past 20 years.

RaaS takes the resource-intensive estimating process and places it in a cloud environment, leveraging the power of cloud computing and making it accessible from anywhere. It can be deployed in a secure public or private cloud infrastructure.

Commenting on the commitment to expand its cloud offerings, RPMGlobal CEO Richard Mathews said he envisions a wide range of applications that will benefit from the ability to calculate reserves in a cloud environment. “The real power of our cloud-based services, such as RaaS, is that they can scale based on real-time compute demand, enabling complex booking calculations to be solved in a fraction of the time. a traditional desktop application would require. Moving to the cloud is really changing the way we are able to solve complex problems.

“Modern mining operations require applications and platforms that can speak natively with cloud applications and their environments to achieve a holistic understanding of their digital mining data and that’s what we enable at RPMGlobal,” he said. -he declares.

Mathews said the future for RPMGlobal’s innovative software products is in the form of SaaS applications. As the suite of cloud-based and SaaS solutions continues to grow, so does the library of microservices that underpin the software. Microservices are part of a cloud-native architectural approach where a single application is made up of many independently deployable smaller components.
