Panoramic Resources: Q4 2018 Quarterly Report
January 29, 2019
Elemental Royalties Limited, (“Elemental”), a private company expanding a diversified portfolio of mineral royalties, is pleased to comment on the recent announcement made by Panoramic Resources Ltd (“Panoramic”) of that company’s Q4 2018 quarterly report. Panoramic is the operator of the Panton PGM project in Western Australia, on which Elemental Royalties holds a 0.5% NSR royalty.
Elemental is pleased to note the positive Q4 2018 report from Panoramic, where that company’s focus remains on restarting the Savannah nickel project, located 60km north of Panton. Progress includes the refurbishment of the processing plant, expansion of the tailings storage facility, production from the Savannah orebody and associated recruitment and shipping operations.
Panoramic considers the Panton Project to be a quality development asset which fits within the Company’s commodity diversification and growth strategy and is a key part of its Kimberley Hub concept.
In addition to continuing to sponsor research by Curtin University on alternative PGM leaching methods applicable to Panton ore, Panoramic is studying the viability of producing a high-grade PGM concentrate together with a chromite by-product steam. Recent testwork indicated that a metallurgical grade chromite by-product can be produced from the Panton PGE concentrate flotation tails using relatively straightforward and inexpensive (WHIMS) magnetic separation techniques. The ability to generate a second revenue stream based on a chromite by-product is potentially a significant development for the Panton Project.
Panoramic has also commenced test-work in conjunction with Curtin University to evaluate the feasibility of producing a value-added Pt, Pd and Au product (bullion) from Panton while maintaining the ability to also produce an economic chromite by-product revenue stream. If possible this should have significant advantages for the Panton project by reducing the capital and operating cost of the PGE extraction and recovery process, enabling the production of a valuable Pt, Pd and Au product as bullion, while maintaining the ability to produce a revenue generating chromite by-product from the flotation tails. Testwork will begin at Curtin University in early 2019.
