Two of Zimtu Capital‘s equity holdings made presentations at PDAC 2015. In the corporate presentations, Patricio Varas of Western Potash Corp. (TSX: WPX) discussed its progress in developing the company’s Milestone potash deposit in southern Saskatchewan. In December 2012, along with AMEC of Americas, Western Potash completed a Feasibility Study on the project. Including its IPO in May 2008, the company has raised in excess of $140 million CAD from institutional and retail investors.

During the technical presentations, Steve Williams of Pasinex Resources Ltd. (CSE: PSE) gave the presentation: “The Importance of Mineralogical Studies at the Core of Success for Geometallurgical Programs“.

A summary of the presentation is as follows:

Geometallurgical programs aim to forecast a mine block performance or output, whether it be from a comminution perspective or from a metallurgical process perspective. The computation of this output is carried out by a geometallurgical model (a mathematical model) that is applied block by block across the deposit block model. This mathematical model should be rooted in those geologically independent variables that most logically relate to the metallurgical process result. Inevitably, and because it is intuitively correct, many of these variables are mineralogical parameters. Mineralogical parameters fundamentally influence mineral beneficiation, leaching and also comminution. Comminution performance is driven by physical aspects of the rock (fractures at both the macro and micro level) but also by mineralogical type, content and texture.

This presentation will introduce us to why mineralogy is so important to geometallurgical programs and then give examples of this in the realms of grinding, flotation and leaching. Examples of the use of mineralogical parameters in geometallurgical models will then be shown. The talk will then take us to some of the future challenges where mineralogical investigation can show benefit to geometallurgical understanding and hence improve geometallurgical programs. Finally, it will be shown that mineralogical advancement is the cornerstone to the continued development of geometallurgy.

Equitas Resources Corp: Nickel Exploration in the Voisey’s Bay Belt

Monday, November 24th, 2014

Zimtu Capital Corp. and two of its prospecting partners recently announced a transaction with Equitas Resources Corp. (TSXv: EQT) whereby Equitas can earn a 100% interest in the Garland Property located in Labrador’s Voisey’s Bay Belt.

When compared to other nickel and base metal districts (ie. Sudbury, ON and Thompson, MB), the Voisey’s Bay district is thought to be at a very early stage of exploration.

The Garland Property encompasses 25,050 hectares and is 30 kilometres southeast of Vale’s Voisey’s Bay Nickel/Copper/Cobalt mine. Between 2000 and 2007, parts of the property and areas to the west were explored with historical methods that included a regional Airborne Gravity Gradiometer survey followed by Induced Polarity (IP) ground-EM surveys and ground reconnaissance sampling.

Equitas Resources has reported that the company intends to initially conduct an airborne Versatile Time-domain Electromagnetic (VTEM max) survey and then have targets ground tested with applicable ground geophysics and geological mapping/sampling to identify high priority targets that may warrant drilling.  These new methods have not been used previously on this area of nickel targets.

Zimtu Roadtrip 2014

In November, Equitas Resources was a participant of the 4th Zimtu Roadtrip.  The Zimtu Roadtrip is an annual event which brings mining executives and investors together in various European cities.  In 2014, there were events in Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich and Geneva.

We would like to share some of the photos:
