The Australian Government’s Department of the Environment and Energy has granted environmental approval for the Thunderbird Mineral Sands Project (Thunderbird) under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).

The Federal environmental approval represents the final key permit required to develop Thunderbird, one of the world’s largest mineral sands deposits.

The latest news is that there have been outstanding results from exploration drilling at its Night Train prospect at the Dampier Mineral Sands Project near Derby in northern Western Australia. Night Train is located 20km southeast of the Company’s world-class Thunderbird deposit, which forms part of the Dampier Project.

Here are the highlights:
• Outstanding drill results confirm Night Train as a major new zircon-rich mineral sands discovery
• 27m @ 5.29% HM, including 22.5m @ 6.17%HM – a record high grade intersection at Night Train
• Mineralisation is up to 27m thick, 1.5km wide and continuous over 4.5km strike length
• Situated just 20km from Thunderbird and adjacent to the planned haul road
• Open along strike, down dip and thickening to the south-southwest
• Maiden Mineral Resource estimate scheduled for Q1 2019

Tilt Renewable takeover update

Mercury and Infratil JV take over offer at $2.30 per share of Tilt Renewable is due to close at 11.59pm on October 15th (unless the Offer Period is extended by the JV). As of the 8th October the offer total acceptance is less than 1% of Tilt Renewable’s shares (excluding the exercise of the option over the shares held by TECT Holdings Limited which was entered into prior to the Offer). It appears shareholders overwhelmingly agree with the Independent Directors that the Offer is inadequate and does not represent fair value for your Tilt Renewables shares.
