Mining Mega Trends and Their Impact to your Organisation's Resilience

Numerous mega trends are impacting the mining industry, making an effective resilience program more important than ever to ensure that operations continue as intended. From ESG considerations, through to the use of advanced technologies such as Internet of Things devices, AI, and digital twins, as well as workplace safety, volatility in commodity markets, and the spectre of Covid-19 still looming. Each mega trend has a different impact that needs managing correctly, with a one-size-fits-all approach insufficient. This white paper identifies the mega trends affecting mining businesses, while exploring the opportunities, risks, and implications for operational resilience, with expert insight from Dynamiq on the best practices and approaches to improve business outcomes.

The transaction is valued at A$8.68m ($6.25m) and will be implemented through the acquisition of GWR’s wholly-owned subsidiary NT Tungsten, which holds a 100% interest in the Hatches Creek project.

“Tungsten Mining has a stated objective of becoming a globally significant player in the tungsten industry.”

The project comprises two granted exploration licences, EL22912 and EL23462, totalling an aggregate area of 31.4km².

According to Tungsten Mining, the licences cover the entire historic Hatches Creek tungsten mining centre, which had historical production of about 2,840t of 65% WO3.

Tungsten Mining CEO Craig Ferrier said: “We are delighted to have agreed terms for the purchase of the Hatches Creek Project, a historic tungsten mine with significant exploration upside.

“Tungsten Mining has a stated objective of becoming a globally significant player in the tungsten industry.

“This acquisition together with the recent acquisition of the Watershed Project in Queensland and our Mt Mulgine development in Western Australia provide an exciting portfolio of tungsten assets to deliver our strategic objective.”

Based on RC drilling programmes completed by GWR in 2016 and 2017, the project hosts multiple high-grade polymetallic tungsten prospects and potential for a large high-grade polymetallic tungsten deposit.

The decision to sell the project comes after GWR carried out a review of its project portfolio.

The proceeds from the transaction will allow the company to continue to focus on its Wiluna West gold project.

Upon closure of the deal, GWR will continue to have exposure to the Hatches Creek project through a 9.73% shareholding in Tungsten Mining.

Completion of the transaction is subject to certain conditions, including shareholder approval and regulatory approvals.
