Despite their maturity as markets (owing much to dwindling local mineable reserves), the largest producers of mining equipment are generally found in the United States and the industrialized nations of Western Europe, as well as Japan.
Thus, the technology provides the dual greenhouse-gas-reduction benefits of sequestering CO2 in the unmineable seams and avoiding emissions of methane from the mineable coal, Burke said.
Mineable reserves are based on a $400 per ounce gold price.
The drilling has discovered wide zones of moderate grade silver mineralization adjacent to historically mined high grade silver veins and has demonstrated potential may exist for a bulk mineable silver deposit.
and second highest in the world; surveys are done to define the pipe boundaries and determine which pipes are the most likely to contain the best grades of uranium mineralization; certain pipes are thought to have known mineralization from prior work; 10 pipes in order of priority will be ready for deep probing geophysical surveys shortly; geologic data suggest that uranium mineralization of underground mineable grade will occur between 900 and 1,500 feet below the surface; as soon as the surveys are completed, those pipes with the strongest indications of uranium mineralization will be drilled; we expect operations to take place over the next several months, dictated in large part by the availability of drill rigs and financing.
Future IP surveys by Liberty Star will use wider electrode spacing to see more deeply into the subsurface so that even a deeply covered but underground bulk mineable body of mineralization may be detected.
The mining lease area has a high probability of discovering additional mineable resources, according to the consultants.
HALIFAX, Nova Scotia -- Acadian Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:ADA) ("Acadian Gold") announced today that it has joined forces with Atlantic Gold NL (ATV-Australian Stock Exchange) ("Atlantic Gold") in the search for bulk mineable gold deposits in the Caribou anticlinal structure ("Caribou Structure") of the Nova Scotia goldfields.
Drill targets in 10 areas of the property are the subject of the current program -- three of these targets are adjacent to the proven and probable mineable reserves in Tres Perlas, Tres Perlas West and Socorro Norte.
In addition to the finished drilled area, Bullion River has identified several high-grade areas that will be explored next, in order to increase the overall mineable gold reserves.
In addition to existing proven and probable mineable reserves of approximately 1.
It should be noted that the size and average grades of the mineable Reserves are determined by the lowest cut-off grades identified as being profitable for the purposes of the feasibility studies.
