:: LionOre Mining International Ltd: Acquisition Of The Bulong Nickel Facility
LionOre Mining International Ltd. (LionOre) has announced that one of its wholly owned subsidiaries, LionOre Australia (Avalon) Pty Ltd, has entered into an agreement with the receivers and managers of Bulong Operations Pty Ltd and Bulong Nickel Pty Ltd. to purchase the Bulong Nickel Project Plant assets, located 30km east of Kalgoorlie in Australia's Eastern Goldfields. The assets to be purchased include the Bulong Nickel Processing Plant, associated equipment and infrastructure tenements. LionOre is not acquiring the Bulong Nickel mineral rights and does not intend to utilize the Bulong Nickel Plant for treating lateritic nickel resources.
The acquisition represents an important growth opportunity in line with LionOre's strategic target to expand its existing nickel sulphide operations in Western Australia and Botswana and establish new production bases in highly prospective regions.
LionOre is considering a number of options for the future use of the Bulong Nickel assets, including the utilization of LionOre's 80% owned Activox(R) hydrometallurgical technology for the recovery of nickel metal from sulphide concentrates.
