IGO Holds A 49% Interest in A Global Joint Venture with Tianqi Lithium Corporation

2022-06-26 23:06:00

Venus Metals Corporation Limited (VMC) announced that its subsidiary ("Venus Subsidiary") has entered a binding transaction with a subsidiary ("IGO Subsidiary") of IGO Limited regarding exploration and, if warranted, development and mining at its Bridgetown Greenbushes Exploration Project ("Project"). IGO holds a 49% interest in a global joint venture with Tianqi Lithium Corporation. The joint venture has a 51% interest in the Greenbushes Lithium Mine. VMC's Greenbushes East Lithium and Bridgetown East NiCuPGE Projects comprise four granted tenements held by Venus Subsidiary, E70/5315, E70/5316, E 70/5620 and E70/5712, and two exploration applications, E 70/6009 (Venus Subsidiary), and E 70/5675 (VMC) outside of map area of Figure 1. The western boundary of the VMC and Venus Subsidiary tenure abuts the Greenbushes mining leases (Figure 1). Geological mapping and reconnaissance surface sampling by VMC within an area of potassic alteration (>9 km2) (Figure 2) located pegmatite outcrops with one pegmatite sample returning 0.28% Li2O (refer ASX release 26 June 2017). Systematic geochemical surveys across the western part of E 70/5315 are planned to identify potential LCT targets under soil cover. In the south of E 57/5315 an ultrafine soil (UF) survey completed by Venus discovered a strong lithium (Li) anomaly, approx. 20 km southeast of the Greenbushes Lithium Mine (refer ASX release 9 March 2022) (Figure 3). Significantly, this Li anomaly (maximum 148ppm) is associated with elevated tin (Sn); elevated tungsten (W) and tantalum (Ta) concentrations adjoin the Li anomaly to the west. The Li anomaly, located within a distinct low in the regional aeromagnetic data, measures approx. 300m x 400m and remains open to the north. North-northeast of the soil anomaly and along the general lithological trend of quartz-mica schist is a historical Snanomaly in laterite (Figure 3) that measures approximately 5km in length and 1-3km in width, based on data from the CSIRO-AGE database (Grunsky, 1991 and GSWA, 1998) and Venus laterite samples (refer ASX release 7 December 2020); this Sn anomaly remains unexplained and untested. The c. 6km long north-northwest geochemical trend of Sn in laterite together with a distinct Li anomaly in ultrafine soil to the south present a compelling target for rare metals and LCT pegmatite exploration. Regional geochemical surveys across the tenement area and drill testing of existing anomalies are planned. The Bridgetown East Ni-Cu-PGE Project falls within the West Yilgarn Ni-Cu-PGE Province (Figure 4) first outlined by Chalice Mining Limited (refer CHN ASX release 4 May 2021) that covers an area of c. 1,200km X 100km and extends from the Narryer Terrane in the north to the Southwest Terrane in the south. Venus' Bridgetown East Ni-Cu-PGE project (refer ASX release 24 September 2021) abuts Chalice's and Venture Minerals' Southwest Project (refer VMS and CHN ASX releases 21 July 2020) (Figure 5). A historical Heliborne Electromagnetic (HEM) survey (refer ASX 27 September 2018) indicated a conductor closely associated with a strong magnetic anomaly that appears to be the northern extension of the Thor Target magnetic trend. A review and remodelling of the geophysical data including a new 3D inversion of the magnetics further highlights a coincident HEM/magnetic target (refer ASX release 1 October 2020) (Figures 6 & 7) that is considered a priority for followup work. This priority target is characterised by a discrete HEM anomaly and conductivity inversion model evident over 300m, located along the strong magnetic anomaly interpreted to represent the extension of the Thor magnetic trend. The HEM inversion model is outlined by an anomalous average conductivity of 10mS/m located approximately 100m from surface and suggests a dip to the east and plunge to the north. Importantly, the magnetic anomalies are broadly coincident with previously mapped ultramafic bodies (Wamex report A5170). IGO intend to conduct Electro-Magnetic (EM) ground geophysical surveys using the deep penetrating SQUID System over selected target areas. Initial surface geochemistry (rock chip and laterite data) combined with historical data identified several target areas (Figure 8) for potential mafic-ultramafic hosted Ni-Cu-Pt-Pd mineralization. One of these areas, Target 1 in the east of E70/5315, coincides with an aeromagnetic high and a HEM anomaly (refer ASX release 7 December 2020). Three phases of soil sampling detected anomalous concentrations of Pt, Pd and base metals (in the ultrafine soil fraction) in Target Area 1 (refer ASX release 29 April 2021) where mafic-ultramafic intrusive rocks crop out nearby. Target 5 is an additional priority target for base metals - PGE mineralization (refer ASX release 24 Sept 2021). Further sampling extended the Pd anomaly at Target 1 to c. 900m length and expanded the existing Cu and Ni anomalies (refer ASX release 29 April 2021) in width and length. At Target 6, the survey confirms historical soil and lag data by Amerod Holdings Pty Ltd. (Wamex report A79877), outlining a c. 400m long Cu-Pd-Pt anomaly. Tin and Pt results (Figures 3 & 8) include 61 ultrafine soils taken along public roads on E70/5620 and E70/5315 (refer JORC Table 1). The priority geochemical anomalies, Targets 1, 5 and 6, warrant ground electromagnetic surveys using the deep penetrating SQUID System to identify potential bedrock sources of the base metals and PGE surface anomalies for drill testing. IGO Subsidiary can acquire up to a 70% interest in the Bridgetown Greenbushes Exploration Project by incurring AUD 3,000,000 of exploration expenditure on the Project in the period of 2 years and 6 months from the commencement date to earn a 51% interest ("Stage 1 Interest"), and an additional AUD 3,000,000 of exploration expenditure within a further 1 year and 6 months to earn an additional 19% interest ("Stage 2 Interest").

IGO Limited's Subsidiary Western Areas Limited Commits to Stage-2 of Nickel Joint Venture

2022-06-22 22:22:00

Metal Hawk Limited advised that IGO Limited through its wholly owned subsidiary Western Areas Limited has satisfied the Stage-1 requirements of its Earn-In and Joint Venture Agreement (EIJVA) with Metal Hawk, having spent $3 Million on exploration across the Joint Venture Projects. IGO achieved the Stage-1 milestone well ahead of the required timeframe and is now entitled to a 51% joint venture interest in Metal Hawk's Kanowna East, Emu Lake and Fraser South projects. Significantly, IGO has elected to proceed with Stage-2 of the EIJVA whereby it can earn an additional 24% joint venture interest by sole funding a further $4 Million of exploration. Metal Hawk is free-carried to a decision to mine and retains 100% of the gold rights at Kanowna East and Emu Lake. UPCOMING ACTIVITY ON NICKEL JV PROJECTS: Kanowna East: Diamond drilling is due to recommence in July 2022 and will continue to explore the interpreted southern extension of the ultramafic corridor hosting the high-grade Silver Swan nickel deposit. Drilling will follow-up nickel sulphide mineralisation recently intersected in maiden diamond hole KEDD001, which identified a broad 220m zone of nickel-bearing ultramafic rocks. Emu Lake: Moving loop ground electromagnetic (MLEM) surveys are scheduled to commence in Third Quarter 2022. The survey will cover areas of prospective ultramafic stratigraphy identified from recent AC (aircore) drilling along strike from the high-grade Binti Binti nickel deposit. Fraser South: A heritage survey is scheduled for July 2022 to allow access for a reconnaissance AC drilling program planned to commence in October. Airborne geophysical surveys are also scheduled to commence in Third Quarter 2022.

Buxton Resources Limited and IGO Limited West Kimberley JV on Road to Discovery

2022-05-01 22:59:00

Buxton Resources updates its shareholders with background technical context supporting IGO's extensive exploration program at the Sentinel Project, part of the BUX/IGO West Kimberley JV. Buxton's discovery of high-tenor Ni-Cu-Co mineralisation at Merlin in 2015 established the agmatic nickel prospectivity of the King Leopold Orogen in the West Kimberley Region of WA. The King Leopold Orogen is located along the Kimberley Craton margin and includes a suite of .88 Ga mafic/ultramafic intrusions known as the Ruins Dolerite. These rocks were formed during the broad Proterozoic global magmatic Ni event which formed multiple Tier 1 size Ni-Cu- Co-PGE deposits, including those at Sudbury,the Thompson, and Raglan belts in North America, and at Pechenga in Russia. The King Leopold Orogen has analogous geology to the Halls Creek Orogen, which hosts the Savannah Ni-Cu-Co deposit. Alongside a series of compelling magmatic sulphide intersections, Buxton's exploration at Merlin documented compelling textural, geochemical, isotopic, and petrographic evidence of sulphur saturation and crustal assimilation in a dynamic intrusive magmatic system within a specific MgO-rich Ruins Dolerite meta gabbroic unit having Cr in excess of 1,000 ppm. Buxton's technical work unequivocally identified the mineralisation to be of magmatic conduit- style and in doing so, Buxton defined the entire King Leopold Orogen as a new exploration province for Tier 1 Ni-Cu-Co-PGE magmatic sulphide deposits. Supported by the detailed follow-up at Merlin, Buxton's early mover, belt-scale project generation resulted in a series of agreements with IGO, including the establishment of the West Kimberley Regional Joint Venture in 2018. IGO continue to fund a comprehensive exploration program, providing Buxton's shareholders substantial leverage in terms of $into the ground. For the upcoming West Kimberley Joint Venture field season, the priority focus is in the Sentinel area. The Sentinel area hosts the volume of Marboo sediments and Ruins Dolerite in the King Leopold Orogen. No drilling has been undertaken to-date at Sentinel, with the maiden drill program anticipated to commence during the 3rd calendar quarter this year, which is only a handful of months away. IGO's initial on-ground exploration at Sentinel commenced late in the 2021 field season and was limited to only a few months prior to the summer wet season. Nevertheless, this work resulted in defining high-conductance ground EM conductors and the discovery of sulphide bearing, high MgO /Cr ultramafic rocks with highly anomalous Ni, Cu and PGE. Buxton is therefore looking forward to new discoveries at Sentinel in 2022 where extensive ground EM and drilling are planned. Buxton intends to provide detailed updates on the planned work at Sentinel as exploration commences on the ground in the coming weeks.

IGO Executing Substantial 2022 West Kimberley Field Season

2022-04-10 22:13:00

Buxton Resources updates its shareholders that Joint Venture partner IGO has provided information regarding the upcoming 2022 West Kimberley field season. IGO has planned a very substantial field season for the West Kimberley Joint Venture, with the priority focus being at the Sentinel area where extensive ground EM coverage and drilling are planned. The 2022 field season is expected to commence in mid- to late-April with track construction into the Sentinel area, including to the Skarloey and Gordon targets, where a substantial bedrock conductor has already been identified. Three crews will undertake geological reconnaissance over areas of interest, completing p-XRF traverses, handheld petrophysical measurements, along with rock-chip sampling. A helicopter will be used to support a significant part of this program to allow efficient coverage of large areas. Two ground geophysical EM teams will start completing MLEM and FLEM surveys using High- temperature SQUID sensors during May, and drilling is expected to commence in mid-July. Programs of Work for ground disturbing activities have been submitted, and stakeholder notifications have already commenced.

IGO Limited Provides Exploration Update

2021-10-14 02:01:00

IGO Limited completed the following exploration activities within the IGO Limited - Boadicea. Fieldwork during Third Quarter Calendar Year 2021 was mainly focused on E28/1932 (Symons Hill) and E28/2937 (South Plumridge). Symons hills (E28/1932): As announced (20/8/21), assays for the previous 809m diamond drill (DD) hole 21AFDD104, targeting the Orion intrusion, demonstrate the intrusion is fertile for magmatic nickel-copper sulphides, providing confidence for further exploration work, particularly as the DD hole is interpreted to have only skimmed the NW margin of this intrusive. During the last quarter, the focus has been on consolidating all the historic data with recent drilling (air-core and diamond) and MLEM survey data. Below is a summary of activity completed during the last quarter, which has resulted in the identification of new targets, in addition to Orion which is interpreted to extend within the tenement: Relogging and sampling of the Bell Ringer DD holes 18BRDD001, 18BRDD002, 18BRDD003 and Red Cap DD hole BSHD001. Kalgoorlie GSWA core library viewing and re-logging of the EIS co-funded Red Cap diamond drill hole BSHD002. Reviewing of the assay data received for the remaining air core holes and diamond drilling at Orion. Completion of hydrogeological air core drilling and preliminary groundwater reservoir study. Data acquisition from the remaining 164 MLEM stations over the Orion prospect which was commenced in the last quarter of fiscal year 2021. More detailed work in understanding the structural architecture and technical assessment of known intrusions which include Orion (a significant target), Elara, Arcturus and Hercules, is needed to help target several search spaces that remain on E28/1932. Recent Exploration Results: All assay data from the E28/1932 aircore drilling completed in Second Quarter CY2021 has been returned, with significant intercepts and interpretation reported to Boadicea leading to the ASX announcement titled Orion Exploration Update, Fraser Range August 20, 2021. Several mafic trends were identified associated with significant Ni-Cu-Co results reported in the same announcement. The Low-Temperature SQUID (LTS) MLEM program completed on E28/1932 was targeting a prospective corridor along strike from known mafic intrusions. Data was being quality controlled and monitored by the IGO geophysics team and identified a NE-trending stratigraphic conductor as well as highlighting the previously identified Red Cap conductor. Bell Ringer and Red Cap Targets: Relogging of (BOA drilled) historic holes at Bell Ringer and Red Cap within the Symons Hill licence provided new interpretation of intrusives requiring additional exploration. Relogging and sampling of the three Bell Ringer DD holes (18BRDD001, 18BRDD002 and 18BRDD003) 1 revealed host rocks that are a key ingredient in allowing prospective intrusions to become sulphur saturated and for Ni-Cu accumulation, with further follow-up work to include structural domain mapping. The Red Cap holes intersected sulphur rich country rocks and sulphide rich mafic intrusions. The Red Cap holes2 fall within the Arcturus mafic trend identified through air-core interpretation, which has been flagged for follow-up work. Relogging has identified previously unidentified mafics in BOA drill hole BSHD001, which is very encouraging and confirms the importance of the re-logging programs. The presence of a sulphide rich mafic intrusion with carbonate assimilation warrants further investigation through diamond drilling. Future work will focus on following the strike extension of the known intrusion, to determine the intrusion architecture and search for potential structural trap sites able to accumulate massive sulphide deposits. Symons Hill Summary: More detailed work in understanding the structural architecture and technical assessment of known intrusions which include Orion (a significant target), Elara, Arcturus and Hercules, is needed to help target several search spaces that remain on E28/1932.

IGO holds a 49% interest in Kwinana through the incorporated lithium joint venture (Lithium JV) it formed with Tianqi Lithium Corporation (Tianqi) on 30 June 2021. Through the Lithium JV, IGO also holds a 25% indirect interest in the Greenbushes mine, the largest, highest-grade lithium mine in the world.Commissioning of the first production train, Train 1, at Kwinana, has progressed at pace over recent months with the commissioning program designed to hot commission each of the individual unit processes sequentially from calcining, acid roasting, leaching, purification and crystallisation on a batch basis, culminating in the production of the first lithium hydroxide chemical. With first lithium hydroxide production now demonstrated 1, the focus will turn to operating Train 1 on a continuous, rather than batch basis, while also progressively improving product quality to a battery grade product for qualification by the company's offtake customers. It is expected that saleable product will be produced in the December 2021 quarter and that battery grade product for accreditation by customers will be produced in the March 2022 quarter. Train 1 is expected to then progressively ramp up to the design production rate of 24ktpa lithium hydroxide by the end of 2022.

IGO Limited Provides Update on Nickel-Copper Assays-Diamond Drill Hole

2021-08-17 23:28:00

IGO Limited has received advice from Joint Venture partner IGO Limited ("IGO") indicating that 95.5m of the 843m long diamond drill hole (21AFDD105) has returned anomalous nickel (Ni) above 100ppm up to 617ppm Ni from 65m. IGO are currently exploring the Symons Hill project under a JV earn-in agreement to earn 70% of the project. IGO are currently reviewing the assay results to determine the next steps which may include further drilling. The Symons Hill project is located some 6km south of IGO's Nova Operation. Matsa holds 225kmsqaure of highly prospective tenure in the Fraser Range Zone of the Albany-Fraser Orogen, which has become Australia's hotspot for nickel exploration. Other magmatic nickel-copper discoveries, including Silver Knight and Mawson, have demonstrated the mineral fertility of the area and the potential for the belt to host multiple economic deposits of similar style. A single diamond drill hole (21AFDD105) was completed to a total depth length of 843.8m. The diamond core was processed and logged, with significant visible mineralised zones sampled as half core and sent to ALS laboratory in Wangara Perth for analysis. Sulphides were noted throughout the hole, with the sulphides dominated by disseminated pyrrhotite (Po) with lesser chalcopyrite (Cp) and pentlandite (Pn). Three-phase blebby to semi-massive sulphides were present from ~215-625m down-hole with sporadic distribution and low visible nickel tenor Po>>Cp ± Pn.

IGO Limited to Acquire Silver Knight Deposit from Creasy Group

2021-07-26 22:14:00

IGO Limited announced that it has entered into a binding agreement with entities owned and controlled by Mark Creasy (Creasy Group) to (i) acquire 100% of the Silver Knight nickel-copper-cobalt sulphide deposit (Silver Knight), and (ii) form a joint venture with Creasy Group (IGO 65%: Creasy Group 35%) over a portfolio of exploration tenements around Silver Knight, for a total cash consideration of AUD 45 million (Transaction). The parties will finalise full-form documentation in respect of the Transaction by 30 September 2021 with completion of the Transaction occurring within 5 business days thereafter. Silver Knight was discovered by Creasy Group in 2015 and is located 35km north-east of and within trucking distance of IGO's Nova Operation. In 2018, Creasy Group estimated an open pit JORC Mineral Resource Estimate for Silver Knight which was the basis for a Mining Lease application. IGO has a planned work program to progress infill drilling at Silver Knight once the transaction is finalized, as well as progressing regulatory approvals and a Native Title mining agreement. Updated resource and reserve estimates are expected to be communicated to the market once this work is completed. In parallel, IGO will continue the exploration of the new joint venture tenements around Silver Knight, which remain prospective for the discovery of Nova-style magmatic nickel-copper-cobalt sulphide deposits.

Carawine Resources Limited and IGO Limited Announces Two New Conductors Identified At Red Bull, Fraser Range JV

2021-07-18 22:17:00

Carawine Resources Limited announced the identification of two new, highly significant bedrock conductors from recently completed MLEM surveys at the Red Bull tenements, about 30km south of IGO's Nova Operation in the Fraser Range region of Western Australia. Red Bull is part of the Fraser Range Joint Venture between Carawine and IGO Limited. IGO is managing and operating the joint venture. Currently IGO holds a 70% interest and is sole-funding an exploration program to 30 June, 2022 to earn up to an additional 6% interest. The two conductors were identified from a low-temperature SQUID ("LTS") moving loop electromagnetic ("MLEM") survey grid comprising 368 stations over an area of approximately 6km x 4km within Red Bull tenement E69/3052. The survey was designed to cover the interpreted southern continuation of the lithostratigraphic package, known as the "Snowys Dam Formation", which hosts the Nova-Bollinger deposit. Conductor RB_C is a strong and discrete late-time basement anomaly in the southwest of the survey grid, identified across three survey lines. Modelling of the conductive source of the anomaly results in a highly conductive plate at ~5,500S, approximately 275m x 275m in size, dipping at a low angle to the northeast and with a depth of approximately 320m to its top. The conductor exhibits an exponential lat e time decay curve with a long time constant of 145msec, characteristics which have the potential to indicate a sulphidic source to the anomaly. Based on these factors RB_C is considered a high priority target for follow up drill testing. Conductor RB_B is a double peak anomaly identified across two survey lines about 2km to the northeast of RB_C. Modelling of this anomaly results in a moderately conductive plate at ~2,500S, approximately 300m x 255m in size, steeply dipping to the east and with a depth of approximately 330m to its top. Despite its lower conductance levels, the location and geological setting of RB_B make it a significant target that also warrants drill testing. Both the RB_B and RB_C conductors are located in a similar stratigraphic and structural setting, within a tightly folded non-magnetic unit clearly defined in the magnetic data and interpreted to be mafic intrusive rocks within the southern continuation of the Snowys Dam Formation. A 3D magnetic inversion was conducted by IGO to assist with the interpretation of the basement geology hosting the newly discovered conductors. The inversion shows the RB_B and RB_C conductors are within low-magnetic bodies, which are most likely to be mafic intrusions. These factors increase the likelihood that the conductive source of the anomalies are related to Nova-Bollinger-style nickel-copper sulphides, as opposed to graphitic metasediment. Carawine's predecessor, Sheffield Resources Ltd. ("Sheffield"), had previously identified a conductor (referred to as "RB_A" in this announcement) from MLEM surveys immediately north of IGO's MLEM survey. Diamond hole REDD004 drilled by Sheffield established the source of the RB_A conductor as graphitic metasediment, with thick intervals of mafic intrusive rocks containing traces of magmatic sulphide intersected 1. There is a close spatial association between the drilled mafic intrusion in historic diamond drill hole REDD004 and the magnetic low units in the 3D magnetic inversion, contrasting with magnetic highs associated with graphite- and pyrrhotite-rich metasedimentary gneiss and the targeted RB_A conductor plate intersected in REDD004. This adds further confidence to the interpretation that RB_B and RB_C are within mafic intrusions.

Technical Analysis

When trying to optimize the timing of an investment, it's critical to analyze whether the stock looks overbought or oversold, and in which direction the momentum is moving. IGO's stock is now priced above its 5-day, but below its 50-day and 200-day moving average, while its MACD (moving average convergence divergence) indicates that the stock's price movement momentum is weakening. Historically, this is a positive setup in the near-term. Meanwhile, looking at the Stochastic Oscillator and RSI (relative strength index), IGO's stock indicates that it's likely oversold. Overall, these technical indicators signal negative momentum. Therefore, this stock received a cumulative TA (technical analysis) score of 52.

Balance Sheet Analysis

IGO's most recent balance sheet report was not encouraging. IGO assets metrics were reported as 3608.7, representing a 21.5% change from the last filing. IGO's unremarkable asset growth results, specifically compared to their industry peers' performance, should present negative pressure on IGO's stock price. Its asset component, therefore, received a grade of 37. Also, IGO did a poor job related to managing cash and cash equivalents this period, which stood at 528.5, representing a -55.4% change from the previous filing. This performance is significantly less impressive than its peers and competitors. Its cash and cash equivalents movement, therefore, received a grade of 42. That said, one metric, Equity, stood out as strongly positive. IGO did a great job related to equity this period, which stood at 3199.9, representing a 20.9% change. This parameter often affects companies in the same industry and market capitalization by up to 5.9%. These metrics are all the more impressive relative to their peers and should support an upswing in their stock price. The company's equity movement component, therefore, received a grade of 80. Because of these weaknesses, the company's balance sheet received an overall score of 50.

Cash Flow Analysis

Net Cash Flow and Free Cash flow stand out as the most significant drivers of IGO's cash flow's strength. IGO presents exciting net cash flow numbers for its recent financial release, illustrated by a net cash flow of 18.2, which is a change of -97.5% from the last filing. This industry-leading net cash flow momentum should reinforce broader positive momentum for its's stock price going forward. Consequently, their net cash flow movement received a grade of 80. Also, IGO did a great job related to free cash flow this period, which stood at 0.5, representing a 4.9% change from the previous filing. Companies in the same industry and market capitalization are typically affected by this parameter by up to 3.7%. The company's free cash flow metrics are especially strong compared to its peers. Management seems to balance cash flow management, asset growth, and resource allocations in general. Therefore, its free cash flow movement earned a score of 73. On the other hand, Asset Turnover, jumped out as looking rather underwhelming. IGO's asset turnover numbers were discouraging, reflecting significant concerns related to management's ability to leverage assets to generate sales effectively and efficiently. IGO recorded asset turnover of 0.2, which represents a -32.3% change from the previous report. Companies in the same industry and market capitalization are typically affected by this parameter by up to 3.2%. Their lackluster asset turnover metrics, specifically in contrast to leading industry peers' performance, could present significant headwinds. Underwhelming results in asset turnover metrics often lead to negative pressure in stock prices, so we rated its asset turnover momentum 57. Their cash flow received an overall score of 72.
