Hallo !!

Leider bin ich kein Niobium & REE Experte, aber vielleicht habe ich ja Glück und einige kompetente User aus der Commerce Resources,Lynas oder Arafura schauen hier mal vorbei und nehmen an einer kleinen Diskussion teil !!

Durch das kanadische Forum "Stockhouse" bin ich auf dieses Unternehmen aufmerksam geworden. Dort im Forum ist man begeistert von Wildcat und auf einem Werbebanner von Wildcat (leider nicht mehr online) stand dass Wildcat in der Top5 der REE/Niobium Unternehmen steht.

Hoffe ich finde hier User, die gemeinsam mit mir feststellen wollen, ob dies tatsächlich so ist und wir vielleicht eine wirklich gute Aktie hier kaufen können, bevor es die breite Schaar von Anleger tut.

Hier mal die letzten Meldungen dieser Woche :

Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp.: Further High Grade Niobium and Rare Earth Results Show Depth Potential of Mrima Hill



Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp PAW
5/5/2011 10:26:15 AM
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, May 05, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --


Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE: PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") has now received all results from its 31 hole Reverse Circulation ("RC") drill program at the Mrima Hill Project, located 70 kilometres south of Mombasa, Kenya, the largest port in East Africa.

Highlights


-- Significant new Total Rare Earth and Niobium Intersections -- Confirmation of Niobium and Total Rare Earth mineralization over a large lateral area (1,000m x 600m) -- Potential high value mix of Heavy Rare Earth Oxides and Yttrium -- Confirmation of extensive depth potential of mineral deposit

Results

The Company is pleased to announce further high grade Niobium and Rare Earth assay results that confirm the large lateral extent of the Niobium and Rare Earth mineralization and show the extensive depth potential of the mineral deposit.

Significant Niobium and/or Rare Earth mineralization was encountered in all 15 RC holes for which the remaining assay results have now been received.

New Niobium Results



DRILL HOLE INTERSECTION
PAWRC027: 30m at 1.72% Nb205 from surface to EOH ("End of Hole")
PAWRC009: 22m at 1.37% Nb205 from surface to EOH
PAWRC010: 21m at 1.01% Nb205 from surface
PAWRC012: 30m at 0.82% Nb205 from surface to EOH including 8m at 1.65%
Nb205 from 8m
PAWRC031: 17m at 0.65% Nb205 from surface
PAWRC028: 13m at 0.64% Nb205 from surface

New Rare Earth Results

PAWRC010: 27m at 4.47% TREO from surface to EOH
PAWRC001(i): 15m at 3.69% TREO from surface
PAWRC005(i): 21m at 3.45% TREO from surface to EOH
PAWRC012: 18m at 3.22% TREO from surface
PAWRC011: 30m at 2.56% TREO from surface to EOH
PAWRC013: 12m at 2.66% TREO from surface
(i) Re-assays of the Nagrom assay laboratory as reported 28th March 2011.

The reported assay results are from the Genalysis Laboratory in Perth. All samples collected were from one metre intervals. Sample recovery was generally good. Poor sample return was rare and was usually due to the intersection of cavities with the drill hole. Drill samples were fed through a sample splitter and a sample size of one to three kilograms was submitted to Nagrom Mineral Processing in Perth, Western Australia for preparation. This preparation involved sample drying, splitting and pulverising. Sample analysis was performed by Genalysis Laboratory in Perth using peroxide fusion and acid dissolution with ICP-MS finish.

Confirmation of Historic Exploration Data

These results together with the 16 holes reported upon on 28th April 2011 (see press release titled "Further High Grade Niobium and Rare Earth Results from Pacific Wildcat Resources Inaugural Drilling Program at Mrima Hill") contain high grade and thick intercepts of both Niobium and Rare Earth mineralization at Mrima Hill. It is significant that high grade mineralization was found at the bottom of 20 (out of the 31) RC holes drilled, and these holes generally ended in supergene enriched clay. PAW has now confirmed the general tenor of the historic exploration data (historical results from test pits dug by Anglo American (Niobium) and the Kenyan Mines Department (Rare Earths) in the 1950's) with drilling having taken place over a wide area (approximately 1,000m x 600m). In general terms, Niobium intersections have broadly matched the historic data and Rare Earth results have exceeded the values from the historic data.

Heavy Rare Earth Oxides plus Yttrium Content

Based on the results from the 31 RC holes, the combined Yttrium and Heavy Rare Earth Oxide percentage (expressed as a percentage of the total proportion of Total Rare Earths Oxides plus Yttrium) is 9.39%. This represents a relatively high proportion of Heavy Rare Earths plus Yttrium when compared to many other mineral deposits and represents a potential high value product.

Depth Potential

As can be seen from Figures 3 and 4 the recent RC drilling program indicates the excellent potential to add significant tonnes of TREO and Niobium mineralization at depth. (ii) Binge FW (1955) reports a total of 32 million tonnes of mineralization at 3.1% REO in the surface weathered profile down to approximately 8m depth (see Company News Release - dated 23rd July 2010). The historic Niobium mineralization target is 40 to 50 million tonnes @ 0.65 to 0.75% Nb2O5 down to a depth of a maximum of 10 metres.

Note that the potential quantities and grades of the above estimates are conceptual in nature, and there is insufficient exploration to date to define a current mineral resource and therefore it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a current mineral resource. A "qualified person" as defined under National Instrument 43-101 has not completed sufficient work to classify the above mentioned historical estimate as a current mineral resource. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource. The historical estimate is not compliant with NI 43-101 and should not be relied upon.

Technical Details of the RC Drill Program

The 31 RC holes drilled had a vertical orientation and averaged 30 metres in depth. The holes were sited on accessible tracks to drill beside former test pits dug by Anglo American (Niobium) and the Kenyan Mines Department (Rare Earths) to help verify the historical grades. This phase of drilling was completed in November 2010 and samples were submitted for assay in March 2011. Please see Figure 1 for the location of the 31 RC holes drilled by PAW in 2010 overlying a geological map taken from mapping by Anglo American in the mid 1950's plus the location of Anglo's test pits. Figure 2 shows the significant intersections of all the 31 RC holes.

The high grade TREO intersections coincide with the southern zone of mineralization, as drilled by holes PAWRC001-010. This area was originally outlined by the Kenyan Mines Department in the 1950's as being prospective for Rare Earth mineralization. For a record of the Rare Earth intersections reported please refer to Table 1.

Table 2 reports average results for the 31 RC holes of the entire drill campaign with the individual Rare Earth oxides reported as a percentage of total Rare Earth oxides including Yttrium, a transitional element that is generally associated with Rare Earth Oxides.

Significant Niobium mineralization was encountered by the Company primarily in the northern area drilled as reported in this announcement from holes PAWRC009-013 and PAWRC027-031.

The drill results coincide with the area identified by Anglo American as a zone of high grade Niobium mineralization which has been outlined from the multiple test pits that were dug in the mid 1950's to an average 9.1 metres depth. For a record of all intersections from the 15 holes being reported please refer to Table 3.

For all 31 RC holes now being reported upon, Thorium levels encountered averaged 539 ppm in the Rare Earths intercepts and 486 ppm in the Niobium intercepts.

Closing Comments

PAW's President Mr. Darren Townsend commented, "We are very excited that PAW's first RC drill program has broadly confirmed the grade and the large lateral extent of the historic exploration data and has also shown the mineral deposit has extensive depth potential. This combined with the high grade tenor of the mineralization and relatively high percentage of Heavy Rare Earth Oxides plus Yttrium bode well for the potential economics of the mineral deposit. We look forward to confirming further depth potential of the mineral deposit and obtaining diamond core for metallurgical testing from the 1,700 metre diamond drilling program currently in progress on site."

Pacific Wildcat Resources Commences Diamond Drill Program at Mrima Hill


Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp PAW
5/2/2011 10:55:21 AM
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, May 02, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network
) --



Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE: PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the next stage of drilling is underway at its Mrima Hill Project in Kenya, where PAW has the contractual right to purchase 70% of the project (refer to press release dated 28th February 2011). This 1,700 metre diamond drilling program is targeting the enriched weathered zone of the carbonatite with the aim of gaining further insight into the depth potential for niobium and rare earth mineralisation at Mrima Hill.

Figure 1 (below) shows the sites of the planned diamond holes versus the position of the significant Niobium results already reported from PAW's 2010 RC drilling program.

Figure 2 (below) shows the significant Rare Earth Results reported so far from the PAW 2010 RC drilling program versus the planned diamond drill holes.

To view Figures 1 and 2 please click on the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/PAW0502.pdf

The diamond drill program is of HQ triple tube and targets a basin of thick weathering which is expected to run across the top of Mrima Hill in an anticipated north-northeast direction. Early drilling by Anglo American indicates that weathering in places extends to over 100 metres vertical depth with significant enrichment in niobium. Anglo did not analyse on a regular basis for rare earths.

PAW's President Mr. Darren Townsend said, "We look forward to the results from this diamond drilling program and the better understanding the core will give us of the deposit in terms of depth potential and metallurgy."

Rare Earths Vs. Rare Birds: Can Pacific Wildcat Resources Succeed?

by Nam Pene on April 17, 2011

There are plenty of companies in the world that are all sizzle but no steak. So, whenever I come across a banner ad promoting a particular stock I consider it with a grain of salt, especially shiny red ones promising MASSIVE POTENTIAL in exchange for my investment. Therefore, when I spotted an ad for Pacific Wildcat Resources (TSX.V: PAW), I was naturally apprehensive…but curious; after all, the ad did say, MASSIVE POTENTIAL!

After a simple click of the mouse I was transported to the other side of the looking glass. Once at the company’s website, I went straight for the company presentation to get a quick narrative of what was going on with the company. The new presentation didn’t open so I deferred to the older one.

The presentation was making a case for the company’s 750,ooo ounce near-surface tantalum deposit. The deposit would be a small-scale project, nothing groundbreaking, but with a positive outlook for tantalum prices and the possibility of producing lithium from the resource, this was looking to be a nice cash-generator and a good base for the company to expand the resource or find other more ambitious opportunities.

I returned to the home page to catch a headline announcing high-grade rare earth intersections from the company’s inaugural drilling program at their newly acquired Mrima Hill project. With all the publicity surrounding rare earths I wouldn’t have been at all surprised if this was just another cheap attempt to capture shareholder attention. So what were the results?
DRILL HOLE INTERSECTION
PAWRC001: 15m at 3.24% TREO from surface
PAWRC002: 30m at 6.49% TREO from surface to EOH (“End of Hole“)
PAWRC003: 30m at 8.85% TREO from surface to EOH
PAWRC004: 30m at 6.42% TREO from surface to EOH
PAWRC006: 43m at 5.25% TREO from surface
PAWRC007: 40m at 5.58% TREO from surface to EOH
PAWRC016: 12m at 5.21% TREO from 18m to EOH
PAWRC019: 43m at 2.98% TREO from surface to EOH
PAWRC021: 29m at 3.52% TREO from surface



According to the Pacific Wildcat’s website, historic (non 43-101) estimates have indicated 32 million tonnes of mineralization at 3.1% REO and 40 to 50M tonnes grading 0.7%-0.8% Nb2O5 to exist on the company’s Mrima Hill leases.

As a brief comparison, Rare Element Resources Ltd. (TSX.V: RES) completed a scoping study concluding that it’s Bear Lodge property contains and inferred resource of 17.5 million tons (15.9 mm tonnes)@ 3.46% REO. The company currently has a market capitalization of roughly CAD 650 million.
Is There a Catch? There’s got to be a Catch


Despite the dumbfounding potential of the Mrima Hill project, the day I stumbled upon this company the stock was bleeding away most of the gains made after the announcement of the drill results.

What was going on?

The plot of Avatar, that’s what was going on.

The company’s license areas cover two forests, the Mrima and Marenje. Although not designated as national forests, these forests have been recognized to contain rare species of plants and animals. According to articles in the press, local residents have complained that prospectors, in the process of bringing in equipment to explore the property, were excessively destroying vegetation in the area.

The company on the other hand, asserts that it is trying to restore access roads to the exploration site in an environmentally considerate manner. According to a representative’s statements cited in this article, the company is “aware of the need to protect natural resources”, and is trying to complete its assessment of the property in order to “make constructive recommendations for an environmentally friendly mining plan”, which will include a reforestation programme for Mrima Hill. Furthermore, the company states that the mineralize zone is only 4.4 square kilometres, a rather small area in comparison to many other deposits found world-wide.

The future of the Mrima Hill project is in a particularly precarious position because the Mrima Forest is considered a sacred forest to the local Mijikenda peoples. The Mrima Hill Sacred Grove, located in Mrima Forest, received the status of national monument in 1992, putting it under the purview of the National Museums of Kenya. This could have a significant impact on the feasibility of the project because Kenyan Mining Law states that “any land in or within one hundred metres of any monument or protected area declared or deemed to have been declared as such by the Minister under the National Museums and Heritage Act” is “excluded from prospecting and mining.”

As mentioned above, the Mrima Forest contains significant biodiversity and is home to many rare species of plants and animals. The Mrima Forest has been classified as an Important Bird Area by Birdlife International who have commented on potential mining on Mrima Hill by stating that: “certainly no opencast mining should be countenanced, as this would be extremely destructive to the forest.” If this advice is to be taken seriously, it could have serious implications on the project as the holes drilled so far have outlined a resource that is close to the surface.
The Case of Tiomin

Pacific Wildcat Resources will have to be careful to avoid the fate of another Canadian exploration company, Tiomin. In 1997, Tiomin was granted an exploration license to explore the Kwale mineral sands project, located in the Coastal Province of Kenya. Three years later, the company submitted their first feasibility study, including an environmental impact assessment, to the Kenyan government. However, a court injunction granted to local landowners halted all activities until 2002, when the court order was lifted. The company finally received a special mining lease from the government in 2004, and in 2005 the company’s resettlement plan of the local communities was approved. However, in 2007 the project was again halted,pending resolution of resettlement and compensation disputes between the company and unhappy residents.The backing out of a partner from an investment agreement in 2009 was the final straw and the company was forced to sell the project in order to cut its losses. In 2010, the company sold the project to Base Resources for $3 million in cash and a 1.5-percent royalty of the product revenue generated by the project.
Parrots and Profits

The economic potential of the project is unquestionable, but questions persist as to whether the company can extract the relevant minerals in a manner that is sensitive to all parties and is in the spirit of humanity’s goals to balance economic growth with sustainability and environmentalism. Many difficult decisions need to be made when billions of profits are pitted against the intangible value of nature. The company’s management has proven that they have the technical knowledge to advance a project, but will they be able to demonstrate that their values are aligned with the people in the community? The answer to this question will ultimately determine whether Pacific Wildcat Resources will succeed.

PACIFIC WILDCAT RESOURCES CORP.
(TSXV-PAW $1.54); NOT RATED



Pacific Wildcat is a Canadian-based junior mineral exploration and
production company focused on rare earth, tantalum and niobium
projects located in Africa. The Company’s most significant catalyst to
drive shareholder value is its option to acquire 70% ownership in the
niobium/rare earth Mrima Hill project in Kenya; although still in early
exploration stages, it has the potential to be a top-tier rare earth deposit
supported by excellent infrastructure and very favourable logistics.
RECENT EVENTS:

???? March 28, 2011 - PAW announced that significant rare earth
mineralization and niobium mineralization was encountered in all
14 holes for which assay results have been received to date from its
initial 31-hole (974 metre) reverse circulation drill program at its
Mrima Hill property in Kenya. High grade rare earth intersections
were encountered to an average depth of ~30 metres.

???? March 7, 2011 - PAW commenced the commissioning of its
Tantalum plant at its Muiane property in Mozambique, with its
primary plant and the initial mining fleet being operational. The initial
tantalum concentrate produced from the plant will be used to
determine product specifications prior to marketing efforts.

???? February 28, 2011 - PAW closed the initial tranche of the acquisition
of the private companies, Stirling Capital and Cortec Ltd. (who jointly
control 70% of the Mrima Hill through ownership of Cortec Mining
Kenya), by acquiring 7% of the issued share capital of each
company in exchange for an aggregate ~AU$1.1 million in cash and
the issuing of an aggregate 5 million PAW shares (2 million shares
held in escrow pending completion of the acquisition).

KEY PROJECT:

Mrima Hill Rare Earth/Niobium Project (Option to Acquire 70%
Ownership)
???? PAW is primarily focused on the Mrima Hill property, located in
south-eastern Kenya. The property encompasses ~1,180 squarekilometres
and is held under a Special Prospecting Licence which
has been extended until March 2012. Over 9,000 metres of test
shafts and over 2,000 metres of drilling have been conducted by
previous operators which include Anglo American.
???? Estimates based on modelling of old shaft data (not 43-101
compliant) indicate high grade rare earth oxide and niobium
resources. These estimates are based on material primarily located
at depths of 10 metres:
o Rare Earth Elements: The Company estimates 25 to 35 million
tonnes at grades ranging between 3% and 4%. The deposits
contain both heavy and light rare earth elements (heavy rare
earth elements include europium, yttrium, and gadolinium).

???? Niobium: 40 to 50 million tonnes at grades ranging between
7,000 and 8,000 grams per tonne of Niobium pentoxide (Nb2O5).

???? The property is approximately 1.5 km from a sealed road and 3 km
from the Mombassa/Dar es Salaam main highway. It is ~80 km from
the Mombasa harbour (largest port in east Africa) and ~40 km from
the Dianna Beach Airport. A national grid transmission line is within
2 km of the property.

???? If the NI 43-101 technical report resource estimates meet resource
targets of more than 45 million tonnes of Niobium (~22% with a
minimum Nb2O5 grade of 1.3% and a minimum 0.7% grade for the
balance), PAW has the option to acquire an additional 63% working
interest in the Mrima Hill property (through the acquisition of the
remaining 93% interest in Cortec and Stirling), through the issue of
19.9% non-dilutive share capital in PAW and $15.2m in cash.

OTHER PROJECTS:


Muiane Project, Tantalum (Ta2O5) Project, 100% Owned
???? The Muiane project is PAW’s most developed asset, and
management is targeting initial production during Q3/11 of 35,000 to
75,000 pounds per year of Ta2O5
. The Muiane deposit is a nearsurface
oxide resource, which is expected to yield favourable mining
and processing costs, as well as higher metallurgical recoveries
coupled with relatively low strip ratios.


???? Tantalum is used in the production of electronic components, and the
more significant end uses include mobile phones, computers, and
automobile electronics. Tantalum spot prices have increased
significantly since late 2009, and are now over US$100 per pound.

DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY:

???? Commence 1,500-metre diamond drilling program at the Mrima Hill
property to test the deeper clay zone as soon as regulatory
approvals have been received.

CATALYSTS:
???? April 2011 - Assay results for the remaining 17-hole RC program at
Mrima Hill.

???? Q2/11 – Release of an NI 43-101 Niobium resource for its Mrima Hill
project, and report on the rare earth oxide grades from this drilling
program.

RISKS:
???? The Mrima Hill niobium and rare earth estimates are based on
historical exploration and are not NI 43-101 compliant. Furthermore,
the closing of PAW’s acquisition of a 70% interest in the Mrima Hill
project is contingent upon a number of conditions, which include
obtaining a mining lease. Excluding Mrima Hill, we do not believe
the Company’s remaining assets justify PAW’s current valuation.

Moin !! Ich habe mal bei PAW nachgefragt, wie hoch der radioaktiv Anteil bei deren Projekt sind.
Vielleicht hat einer von euch den Überblick wie diese Werte bei anderen Expl. ausschauen ?? .. wer hilft .. ?

"........The average Thorium grade from our latest drilling was 539 ppm over an average grade of 4.63% total rare earths including Yttrium (TREO). This is based on a lower cut of 1% TREO and is based on all the drill holes not just the high grade rare earth zone. In addition we have very low Uranium levels of around 40 ppm.

PS: nach Japan wird dieser Wert immer wichtiger später überhaupt eine Produktionsgenehmigung zu erhalten (siehe Lynas & Malaysia ) !!

First Effort NPV Analysis
posted on Mar 05, 11 11:34AM (Log in to use the IP Check tool) [?]

courtesy of billlc on SH

Dundee Securities did an analysis of Quest's (v.QRM) Strange Lake project to produce 13000 tons of REOs/yr. I tried to recreate their Net Present Value analysis (some information is missing and some inconsistent) and came fairly close. That effort is the 2/23/2011 9:36:36pm post on the v.GWG board.

The target here is to do a Dundee type NPV analysis for PAW. It is a first effort and hopefully some of you will have better numbers. The biggest problem is costs. But first we have to estimate if the resources of Mrima Hill could support a 13000 ton/yr operation. The website has a color coded map of Mrima showing concentrations and a second map with niobium results. From Map 1 it is estimated that the area of 6% grade covers at least 6 blocks 200m x 200m (m here means meters) or 240000m^2. The holes have been drilled to 30 meters or more so the ore body is estimated to be 7.2 million cubic meters. Estimating that a cubic foot of ore weighs 80 lbs and doing conversions the ore body is about 9.88m tons (m now is millions). With a 6% grade and 77% recovery, the TREO (total rare earth oxides) is 456500 tons or 15.5 times the 29400 current estimate for GWG's Steenkampskraal mine. This is far more than enough to support production of 13000 tons/yr for 20 years.
Quest also has projected byproduct sales of niobium Nb and zirconium Zr. Converting the Zr to an Nb equivalent, Quest has a combined Nb grade of .45%. Map 2 and other deions indicate that PAW has an Nb grade triple that of Quest. In the Dundee analysis the byproduct proceeds exceed cash costs driving net cash costs negative. With an even richer byproduct we should expect that PAW's cash costs would be even more negative.

REVENUES. Dundee used a price of $19.68/kg of REO and $25 for Nb. PAW has a lesser amount of HREEs so it is assumed that Paw will get $16.40/kg or 5/6 as much as Quest. There are 907.2 kg/ton. Multiplying out, the REO revenue is $193.4m and $63.9m for the Nb. Now comes the tough part, costs. We could use the help of mining, chemical, and metallurgical engineers.

COST OVERVIEW. There is a processing facility flowchart from a great poster on v.GWG, wwwater (2/11/2011 2:14:40pm). I am dividing it into 3 parts, mining, crushing-milling-physical separation (CMP), and then chemical leaching-acid-solvent (LAS) operations. Dundee's cash operating costs for Quest were $101.50 per tonne (I am guessing that here they mean a metric ton) are $4.86 USD for mining (seems low - Quest is underground and under lake, Mrima should be surface mining), $64.37 for milling (CMP) and $32.28 for chemicals, etc and administration and transportation. Mining and CMP costs should be determined by the amount of raw ore processed, the chemical costs proportional to both the volume of ore and also REO product produced. Changing from tonnes to tons gives mining costs of $4.42 instead of 4.86, 58.52 instead of 64.37, and 29.35 instead of 32.28.

CASH COSTS. Costs in Kenya should be less than in the north of Canada but for the moment we will use the Dundee numbers for Canada. To find mining costs we have to calculate the number of tons of raw ore that have to be mined to obtain 13000 tons of REO. The answer is 281385 (281385 x .06 x 77% = 13000). Quest, because of its low grade had to mine 1,500,000 tonnes or 1,650,000 tons or almost six times as much raw ore to get its 13000 tons of product.

CASH COSTS: For mining: 4.42 x 281385 = $1,243,210. For milling etc. 58.52 x 281385 = $16,466,139. The chemical processing costs are trickier since they are a function of the input and the output. PAW has a rich 6% feed going into this section of the flow diagram, QRM only a 1% feed. QRM's cost is $48.42m to refine its low grade feed. Pending engineering help I assume PAW's cost to be half or $24.21m. Again converting tonnes to tons gives this stage a cost of $22,099,091. Adding these costs together gives a total of $39,808,440.

CAPITAL COSTS AND DEPRECIATION. Quest's initial plant and equipment costs (rounded) are $740m, with $100m for working capital, and $80m for sustaining capital (replacement). Assume that the allotments are proportional to the cash costs. Then mining equipment is $37m, Crushing-milling $481m, and processing $222m. PAW (open pit) because of its richer ore has to mine less than 1/5th of what Quest mines. So, it is assumed that mining equipment will be 1/5th of Quest or $7.4m. Similar argument for crushing-milling which comes in at $96.2m. A 50% factor rather than 20% is applied to the chemical processing sector giving $111m. The total is $214.6. Add $50m for working capital and $40m for replacement gives a total of $304.6m. Adding another $95.4m as a "fudge factor" brings the total to $400m which is split over the next two years. Depreciating straight line over 20 years gives an annual depreciation of $20m. Quest has an additional terminal flow for the return of working capital and the value of the unmined resource, I am skipping this.

INCOME AND CASH FLOW STATEMENTS. With rounding: REO Revenue 193.4m + Nb Revenue 63.9 - Cash Cost 39.8m - Depreciation 20m = EBT (earnings before tax) 197.5m. Tax at 35% is 69.1m, EAT = 128.4m, and adding back depreciation gives an annual Cash Flow of $148.4m.

CASH FLOW TIMELINE. The cash outflow for the next two years is -200 and -200. Then there are 20 cash inflows of $148.4m.

THE TIME VALUE OF MONEY: NPV. Quest was discounted at different interest rates but 10% was the main result. The first number in the time line is divided by 1.10, the second by 1.10^2, the third by 1.10^3, and so on. Then added together. The NPV is $697.4 which divided by the 85m shares out gives a value of $8.20/share, and this gives zero value to the tantalum operation in Mozambique. Where is Phil Rizzuto when we need him?

TIME FOR CRITICISM. To start I think 15% is a better discount factor. NPV15 = $4.44/share. Pile on.

We will see major gains in the second half of 2011 in Rare Earth stocks and a large amount of strategic acquisitions by end users.

The prices of rare earth oxides are blasting through the stratosphere. Manufacturers are driving prices in their haste to involve them in production of hybrid vehicles, wind turbines and the most high tech applications of which many sophisticated investors are unaware. These producers need the rare earth ore and are willing to pay for them on the world markets. These high tech corporations need rare earths in order to survive. China (NYSE: FXI, Stock Forum) has the right stuff, but are claiming perhaps rightfully that they need the materials for themselves. In fact they are in the forefront of venturing abroad to take over promising heavy rare earth mines all over the world. Do not forget China’s bid to control Lynas in 2009. America once commandeered this mining area, but over the years, China co-opted this area and became the world leaders supplying over 97% of the world’s rare earth supply. North America and Europe need to move fast to develop their own supply as prices soar due to suppliers holding on to ore expecting higher prices. Few suppliers want to quote and their are shortages within the industry of the heavy rare earths especially dysprosium, terbium and europium.

One of the great demands for rare earths is coming out from manufacturers of hybrid cars. Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE: TM, Stock Forum) and Honda Motor Co. Ltd. (NYSE: HMC, Stock Forum) in order to produce these fuel efficient vehicles requires a large amount of rare earths in each automobile. Toyota has increased the price of the Prius. This is no surprise as each Prius car uses at least 1kg of neodymium which has recently soared in value. These new hybrid models are driving sales and one can be sure that the manufacturers will make sure to gain supplies for several years to come. These companies look 3-5 years for potential supplies and heavy rare earth assets in North America and Europe are being closely studied.

Never has there been a divergence between the price of the rare earth ores and the developing rare earth miners as there is now. The current commodity correction has caused the high flying rare earth sector (NYSE: REMX, Stock Forum) to plunge to critical support levels. I believe we are currently seeing a transition of ownership from weak holders on margin to strong holders with cash. Buying these world class heavy rare assets now by end users at these cheap levels is critical as the opportunity may not last long. Many of the rare earth stocks such as Avalon Rare Metals Inc. (TSX: T.AVL, Stock Forum) and (AMEX: AVL, Stock Forum), Rare Earth Element Resources Ltd. (AMEX: REE, Stock Forum) and Molycorp Inc. (NYSE: MCP, Stock Forum) are down more than 30% from their highs. This is quite normal for highly speculative mining investments and investors in this sector should be prepared for dizzying moves to the upside and quite painful moves to the downside.

We may begin to see a race to control these heavy rare earth assets in mining friendly jurisdictions while this divergence exists between the price of rare earth ore and the rare earth mining shares. These manufacturers through the support of their governments will find available supply by strategic acquisitions and off take agreements. Personally, I am looking for the critical heavy rare earths outlined by the U.S. Department of Energy, such as dysprosium, terbium and europium which are seeing critical supply constraints.

The West is struggling to gain supply over the next few years and some of these undiscovered gems with the crucial heavy rare earths will not last long at these price levels. Molycorp better move fast to gain heavy rare earth assets before investors realize that their Mountain Pass deposit does not contain the critical heavy rare earths. Just having the light rare earths will not be enough. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS, Stock Forum) recently revealed that there may be a surplus of the light rare earths. Investors must remember that not all rare earth mines are created equal.

Companies in the rare earth sector are advancing rapidly in developing projects all over the world and have moved rapidly to fast track key assets. Governor Parnell has supported Ucore Rare Metal Inc’s (OTO: UURAF.PK, Stock Forum) Bokan Deposit and has sent a letter to President Obama on how Alaska’s rare earth deposits could be a key component of developing a rare earth supply chain outside China. Another prominent miner is Lynas Corp. (OTO: LYSCF, Stock Forum) as Australian entity in whom Japanese (NYSE: EWJ, Stock Forum) interests have taken large positions. They announced the establishment of a proposed production plant in Malaysia. They insist they are still on target for commencing production by September 2011. Malaysian environmentalists are protesting this. They remember being badly burned by Mitsubishi of Japan who left Malaysia holding a radioactive bag after producing rare earths. The environmentalists in Malaysia are very careful this time. The Lynas management is assembling a panel of experts from all over the world to calm Malaysian fears and at the same time prevent any unfortunate reoccurrence. Lynas welcomes the one month review to ensure the project is safe and presents no danger to the workers. Lynas also hopes to have its Australia Mt. Weld project up and running. Japan so desperate to obtain product for their high tech industries on which their economic survival is based, has bankrolled the building of this project. Lynas is hoping to transport this ore from Australia to Malaysia for processing. This contract was signed by both sides in September 2008.

Little noticed is the acquisition by Lynas of a large rare earth deposit in Malawi, Africa. They have the approval of the Malawi Government to commence development of this major project. Interestingly, the deposit has extremely low natural radiation levels unusual for a Rare Earth Deposit.

LYSCF CHART

Lynas appears to be reaching extremely oversold levels and long term support. This is an area in which we have seen major reversals higher. I am confident about the progress of this facility in Malaysia and believe Lynas will truly be the first miner to the market outside China. Lynas is on sale and should hit our short term target.

In conclusion, the rare earth supply constraint continues to elevate Rare Earth Prices sharply both inside and outside China. . Investors will not be asking for much longer why aren’t rare earth mining stocks going in tandem with rare earth prices. I believe we will see major gains in the second half of 2011 in these stocks and a large amount of strategic acquisitions by end users. Investors may be looking at this pullback in rare earth miners in retrospect as an excellent buying opportunity.

Hallo Pirat,

ich bin mehr oder weniger durch Zufall auf dein Thread zu PAW aufmerksam geworden. Ich selber war und bin seit ein paar Monaten investiert und würde natürlich gerne versuchen eine Diskussion hier mit zu gestalten - ich denke PAW ist es Wert :cool:

Ich selber bin zwar auch kein REE-Experte, allerdings habe ich hier bisschen Research-Arbeit gemacht. Mit dieser Grundlage und deinen eingestellten Beiträgen lässt sich dann sicher gut diskutieren ;)

Daher als Erstes eine kurze zusammenfassung aus dem aktuellen (abgeänderten) MD&A Bericht vom 18.05.2011:



2 Projekte in Afrika:
* Muiane (Tantal/Lithium) in Mozambique (+ Twigg Option)
* Mrima Hill (REE/Niob) in Kenia (Kaufoption für 70%)

(1) Muiane (100% PAW) - Stand der Dinge

- Erstes Bohrprogramm über 1,500m durchgeführt (2009)
- Kauf einer kleinen Produktionsanlage (20-30 t/h) für Tantal (2010)
- Installation erfolgt (März 2011)

(1) Muiane (100% PAW) - nächsten Schritte

- Produktion von Tantal (kleine Menge)
- Metallurgische Tests durchführen
- Größere Tantal Produktion in naher Zukunft ("in the short to medium term")
- Weitere Exploration im Gebiet, um weiteres Bohrprogramm zu starten

(zusätzlich Twigg Option --> Weitere Gebiete um Muiane - aktuell im Gespräch mit AFE, um Option zeitlich auszuweiten)


(2) Mrima Hill (7% PAW) - Stand der Dinge

- Erstes Bohrprogramm über 1,000m durchgeführt (2010)
- Akquisition für 70%-Anteil
- historische Resource von 40-50 Mio. t Niob @0,70%
- historische Resource von 35 Mio. t REE @3,10%


(2) Mrima Hill (7% PAW) - nächsten Schritte

- Akquisiton abschließen
- 2. Bohrprogramm (1,500m) läuft
- 3. Bohrprogramm (10,000m) soll im Juli beginnen (!)

(2) Mrima Hill (7% PAW) - Akquisition
- Recht für PAW 70% an Cortec zu kaufen (hält 100% an Mrima Hill)

* Teil 1 - 120,000A$ gezahlt (für Exploration)

* Teil 2 - NI 43-101 erstellen, 1,5M A$ aufgebracht
--> 1,128M A$ gezahlt (für Bohrprogramm), 5 Mio. Aktien ausgegeben = 7% Anteil

* Teil 3 - NI 43-101 abschließen - 45 Mio.t Niob mit 0,7%, inkl. 13 Mio.t mit 1,3%, Abbau Lizenz
--> 28,702,353 Aktien ausgeben (aber max. 19,9% von den aktuell outstanding shares) und 15,161,528 A$ zahlen (noch offen !)


Aktienstruktur

*Outstanding: 109,271,804
*Options/Warrants: 17,658,057 (zusätzlich rund 5 Mio. C$)
*Fully Diluted: 126,929,861


Cash, PP und MKap

*Cash (geschätzt): ca. 4 Mio C$
*Letztes PP (außerhalb der Finanzierung von Mrima Hill): 1,000,000 @0,90C$ (Jan 2011)
*Mkap (Shares out*price - Cash): 98,3 Mio. C$
*Mkap f/d (shares f/d*price - Cash - Cash aus Options/warrants): 114,2 Mio. C$

So, jetzt werde ich mal versuchen meine Meinung zu PAW darzulegen...

PAW hat also 2 Projekte in Afrika und beide drehen sich um seltene Metalle. Hierbei exploriert PAW für folgendene Metalle: Tantal, Lithium, Niob und seltene Erden. Das ist schonmal eine eher ungewöhnliche Kombination, da die meisten REE-Explorer nur REE und noch eines von den 3 anderen Metallen zu bieten hat.

Der erste Fokus von PAW lag auf Muiane. Dort sind aktuell

1,375 Mio.t @250 g/t bzw. 0,75 Mio. lbs Tantal (NI 43-101 kompatibel)

nachgewiesen. Dieser NI 43-101 ist von 2009 und nur auf einem sehr kleinen Gebiet, bis in eine Tiefe von 60m entstanden. Die Infrastruktur vor Ort ist gut und eine kleine Produktionsanlage für rund 600tpd ist schon aufgebaut. Eventuell wird sogar schon in kleinen Mengen Tantal produziert, dass ist aber eher als Test für eine größere Produktion gedacht (aktuell kein kommerzieller Verkauf). Der Start der richtigen Produktion ist aber noch dieses Jahr geplant (!) - "The production of tantalum is expected to reach full capacity by June 2011, with an operational life estimated at 3-5 years."



Mit Muiane hat PAW also eine schon bald laufendenen Cash-Flow (auch wenn dieser noch gering ist), wiederum ein Merkmal, welches kaum ein anderer REE-Explorer zu bieten hat. Das Gebiet selber ist noch stark unterexploriert (siehe Karte), so dass sich hier kaum genau sagen lässt, was dort noch alles liegt. Zu den Vergleichen mit den Peers kann man daher nur die 0,75 Mio. Tantal hernehmen + den Produktions-Stage.

Quelle

Und dennoch ist der Fokus weg von Muiane auf das 2.Projekt gewandert - Mrima Hill.



Dieser Hügel in Kenia wurde schon öfters exploriert und hat daher einige historische Ressourcen-Schätzungen: in den 50er Jahren von Anglo - 50,5 Mio. t @0,67% Niob auf eine Tiefe von 9,14m + 32 Mio. t @3,10% REE auf einer Tiefe von 8m. Zusätzlich hat Terra Search in 2010 eine Schätzung über

40-50 Mio. t @0,7-0,8% Niob (nicht NI 43-101 kompatibel)

veröffentlicht.

Das erste Bohrprogramm von PAW hat die hohen Grades von REE und Niob bestätigt - und das auf eine Tiefe von 30m (siehe letzte News). Zusätzlich endeten sehr viele der Bohrlöcher in hoher Mineralisierung, so dass im nächsten Schritt die Tiefe möglicherweise auf 60m verdoppelt werden kann (bzw. 7x soviel wie in der historischen Schätzung !) Dahingegen läuft die aktuelle Spekulation, denn 7x50 Mio.t @0,70% Niob = 5,4 Mrd.lbs Niob (!) und 7x32 Mio.t @3,10% REE = 224 Mio.t @3,10% REE. Dabei ist zu beachten, dass das Bohrprogramm eine durchaus höhere REE-Mineralisierung erwarten lässt!
In die Tiefe ist das Gebiet also noch komplett offen und das lässt Phantasien hochleben (die weathered-Zone soll nach Anglo bis über 100m tief sein!) Dennoch sind das alles noch Spekulationen und jetzt schon eine Art Cash-Flow-Analyse zu machen, ist sehr übertrieben. Da fehlt schon noch einiges bis dahin!

Was hat also den Absturz von 1,80C$ auf aktuell nur noch 0,90C$ verursacht?

Ein Grund ist die finale Tranche im Akquisitions-Prozess von Mrima Hill. Aktuell hält PAW gerade mal 7% am Projekt. Um 70% am Projekt zu erlangen (keine 100% ! - wichtig bei Vergleichen mit Peers) müssen sie bis zu 28,702,353 Aktien ausgeben (maximal 19,9% von den Post Outstanding Shares) und 15,161,528 A$ zahlen. Das bedeutet eine starke Verwässerung der Aktionäre, um überhaupt "Herr des Projektes" zu werden. Ein PP ist nötig - die Frage ist nur der Preis. Wenn man den aktuellen Verlauf und die letzten PPs als Basis nimmt, nehme ich ein PP um die 1,00 C$ an (15,000,000 @1,00C$ + 7,500,000 Warrants @1,20C$) - das ist aber reine Spekulation!

Aktienstruktur nach Mrima Hill Akquisition
Outstanding shares: 109,271,804 + 15,000,000 + 28,702,353 = 152,974,157
--> aber 28,702,353 + 5,000,000 wären über 22% der Outstanding Shares, somit würde die Aktienausgabe reduziert werden. Das würde zur Ausgabe von rund 24,700,000 statt 28,702,353 Aktien führen
--> ergo Shares Outstanding nach der Tranksaktion: rund 150 Mio.

Outstanding: rund 150 Mio.
Options/Warrants: 25,158,057 (rund 14 Mio.$ Cash)
f/d: rund 175 Mio.

MKap nach Mrima Hill Akquisition (@0,90C$)
Mkap: 131 Mio. C$
Mkap f/d: 139,5 Mio. C$
Die Rechnung ändert sich natürlich, je nach Preis des PPs und aktuellen Kurs.

Ein weiterer Grund des Preissturzes könnte der Bericht über "lokale Probleme" vor Ort sein - siehe NR vom 14.04.2011. PAW hat dem sich Vorwurf zwar sofort entschieden entgegengestellt, allerdings bleibt natürlich eine gewisse Unsicherheit übrig. Zumal der Standort Afrika sicherlich einen Abschlag im Vergleich zu Kanada oder den USA erfährt - und das muss man auf Dauer erwarten.

Ebenfalls nicht zu verachten sind die letzten PPs, die dieses Jahr bisher abgeschlossen wurden. Diese waren mit 0,22C$ und 0,90C$ geschlossen wurden! Somit erklärt sich die aktuelle Kursstütze um die 0,90C$...zusätzlich sind noch etliche Optionen und Warrants offen, die beim aktuellen Kurs stark im Geld sind und zu Verkaufsdruck führen.

Zum Management selber kann ich leider nicht viel sagen, dass müsste man aber sicherlich noch nachholen.

Jetzt komme ich zu einem kleinen Peer-Group-Vergleich. Dazu vergleiche ich PAW mit:

* CCE - Commerce Resources
* RES - Rare Earth Elements
* QRM - Quest Rare Minerals

Zu erst die Übersicht welche Daten ich zum Vergleich hinzuziehe:

*1,375 Mt @250 g/t Ta (NI 43-101 kompatibel), sowie
*50 Mt @0,7% Nb (nicht NI 43-101 kompatibel) und 32 Mt @3,1% REE (nicht NI 43-101 kompatibel) (Case I - konservativ)
*150 Mt @0,7% Nb (Schätzung, bis 30m Tiefe) und 120 Mt @3,1% REE (Schätzung, bis 30m Tiefe) (Case II - realistisch)
*350 Mt @0,7% Nb (Schätzung, bis 60m Tiefe) und 224 Mt @3,1% REE (Schätzung, bis 60m Tiefe) (Case III -optimistisch)

Der (Case III) ist nur dazu da, die aktuelle Spekulation um PAWs Mrima Hill ein wenig zu erklären. Zum aktuellen Vergleich sollte man allerdings nur (Case I) und (Case II) annehmen.
Ein weiteres Problem bei den Vergleichen ist die Zusammensetzung der REE. Gerade ein hoher Anteil an HREO ist bedeutend stärker zu werten, als TREO.

Mkap von PAW: 130 MC$
Mkap f/d: 140 MC$
(Berechnungen s. oben)

---
CCE mit Eldor (REE) und Blue River (Ta, Nb)


---

CCE hat ein ähnliches Rohstoff-Portfolio wie PAW und lässt sich damit am besten vergleichen. Sie haben ebenfalls 2 Projekte mit REE und Niob, Tantal Fokussierung. Beide Projekte liegen in Kanada, sind somit sicher gelegen und haben gut Infrastruktur. Im Vergleich zu PAW hat CCE schon 2 NI 43-101s und ist schon bei beiden dabei eine PEA zu
entwerfen.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Inferred Resource 117,4 Mt @1,74% REO mit bis zu 14,6% HREO
PEA underway, open in all directions
-----------------------------------------------------------
(Case I) = 48,6% von CCE
(Case II) = 182,1% von CCE
(Case III) = 339,9% von CCE

-----------------------------------------------------------
Indicated Resource 36,4 Mt @195 g/t Ta und @0,17% Nb
Inferred Resource 6,4 Mt @199 g/t Ta und @0,189% Nb
PEA underway, open in several directions
-----------------------------------------------------------
1,375Mt @250 g/t Ta = 4,11% von CCE

(Case I) = 473,1% von CCE
(Case II) = 1419,4% von CCE
(Case III) = 3311,9% von CCE
-----------------------------------------------------------

Mkap: 96,4 MC$ (Cash 10 Mio. C$) zu 130 MC$ = 134,8%
Mkap f/d: 84,5 MC$ (Cash + Cash aus Optionen/Warrants 60 Mio. C$) zu 140 MC$ = 165,7%

Schon im Vergleich mit CCE ist es schwer zu sagen, wie PAW zu bewerten ist. Im REE-Bereich sind sie in etwa gleich zu behandeln (Case I mit 50% und Case II mit 182%), beim Tantal hat PAW zwar schon eine kleine Produktion, allerdings nur einen Bruchteil von der Resource die CCE nachgewiesen hat. Dafür hat PAW eindeutige Vorteile beim Niob. Diese Niob-Resource ist wirklich gigantisch (besonders die Grades).

---
RES mit Bear Lodge (REE, Au)


---

Ein Vergleich mit RES ist schon um einiges schwieriger, da das RES-Projekt neben REE noch Gold hat, dagegen aber kein Niob oder Tantal. Die REE-Grades sind mit durchschnittlich 3,5% und im High-grade Bereich mit 5,5% durchaus mit PAWs-Werte zu vergleichen. Das Projekt liegt in Wyoming, also den USA. Die Infrasturktur ist somit sehr gut und die Lage sicher.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Inferred Resource 17,5Mt @3,46% REO
-----------------------------------------------------------
(Case I) = 163,8% von RES
(Case II) = 614,4% von RES
(Case III) = 1146,8% von RES

-----------------------------------------------------------
Scoping Stuy (PEA) fertig, 87 MC$ CAPEX, IRR 40-60%, NPV 131-251 MC$, open along strike
Gold-Ziel von 1-2 Mio. ozs
-----------------------------------------------------------

Mkap: 430,4 MC$ (Cash 70 Mio. C$) zu 130 MC$ = 30,2%
Mkap f/d: 483,2 MC$ (Cash 70 Mio. C$) zu 140 MC$ = 28,9%

Ein Vergleich zwischen PAW und RES ist fast unmöglich. Dafür sind die Projekte einfach zu unterschiedlich. Einzig die REE-Mineralisierung ist in den Grades nahezu identisch. Dafür gesehen hat PAW eine beachtlich größere REE- Resource, und statt Gold eben Niob und Tantal. Nicht zu vergessen ist, dass RES natürlich in einer anderen Stufe der Explorer-Tätigkeit ist und somit höher bewertet ist.

---
QRM mit Strange Lake (REE)


---

Strange Lake von QRM ist ein HREO Deposit und damit sehr selten. In Kanada/Quebec gelegen, d.h. sicher, allerdings mit mittelmäßiger Infrastruktur, da sehr weit im Norden.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Indicated Resource 140,2Mt @0,93% TREO mit bis zu 65% HREO
Inferred Resource 89,6 Mt @0,88% TREO
-----------------------------------------------------------
(Case I) = 47,4% von QRM
(Case II) = 177,8% von QRM
(Case III) = 331,9% von QRM

-----------------------------------------------------------
PEA fertig, 563,4 MC$ CAPEX, IRR 36%, NPV(8%) 2,4B$, production 2015, open in all directions and at depth
-----------------------------------------------------------

Mkap: 395,9 Mio. C$ (Cash 50 Mio. C$) zu 130 MC$ = 32,8%
Mkap f/d: 480,1 Mio. C$ (Cash 50 Mio. C$) zu 140 MC$ = 29,2%

Auch hier ist der Vergleich nicht ganz einfach. Das Projekt von QRM ist bedeutend weiter als PAW und hat beeindruckende Kennzahlen im PEA. Die REE-Resource an sich liegt im gleichen Bereich. Allerdings ist der HREO um einiges höher, was in einer deutlich höheren Bewertung resultiert.

---
Zum Abschluss ist zu sagen, dass ein sinnvoller Vergleich aktuell nicht wirklich möglich ist. Höchstens noch mit CCE. Alle anderen Explorer sind in einem anderen Stage und die jeweiligen Deposits sind anders gestrickt. Aber man kann sehen, in welche Bereiche PAW vordringen kann, wenn sie einen NI 43-101 über mind. 30m veröffentlichen können und sich weitere Spekulationen als wahr herausstellen.

Zum Schluss noch eine Folie von QRM im Vergleich mit Avalon, Lynas, Arafura und Molycorp.

So das wird jetzt erstmal mein letztes Post zu PAW ;)

Meine abschließende Meinung setzt sich zusammen aus:

+ Positive Dinge
* Das 1.Bohrprogramm bestätigt die historischen Resourcen von Mrima Hill und zeigen sogar noch gute Upside-Potential (über 30m Tiefe, höhere REE-Mineralisierung) --> 2. und 3. Bohrprogramm sind unterwegs
* sehr hohe Niob- und REE-Grades
* gutes Verhältnis zwischen HREO und TREO
* gute Infrastruktur und Lage
* Tantal-Produktion in kleiner Menge schon in naher Zeit möglich --> Cash-Flow

- Negative Dinge
* Finale Tranche der Mrima Hill Akquisition noch nicht durch --> PP nötig, auch in Zukunft Dilution
* Politische Lage nicht ganz so sicher, wie USA oder Kanada
* Eventuell Probleme mit Natives Vorort
* Beachtliche Bewertung, alleine auf historischen Resourcen-Schätzungen basierend



---

PAW ist derzeit eine richtige Spekulation im Bereich von seltenen Rohstoffen, aber noch lange keine sichere Sache. Nimmt man die 1,80C$ vom Hoch und die aktuelle Aktienanzahl, war die MKap schon über 200 MC$...sehr sportlich im Vergleich zu den anderen Explorern und deren Projekte. Aktuell ist die Mkap allerdings auf 100 MC$ gefallen, was sicherlich zusammen mit dem letzten PP zu 0,90C$ einen guten Boden bilden sollte. Eine Starterposition in der aktuellen Lage ist somit sicherlich nicht verkehrt.

Vergessen sollte man aber nicht, dass PAW von der 0,30C$ gestartet ist und selbst auf dem Niveau noch viele Optionen/Warrants gut im Geld sind. Auch sollte man unbedingt auf die nahe Finanzierung von Mrima Hill achten. Je nach Preis wird diese die Richtung für die nahe Zukunft angeben. Dagegen werden die ersten Ergebnisse zum 2.Bohrprogramm über min. 60m Tiefe das wahre Potential zeigen (oder nicht).

Über allem ist natürlich eine gute Entwicklung der entsprechenden Rohstoff-Preise entscheidend für den Kurs...

PAW Shareholder Update
6/9/2011 9:16:26 AM - Market Wire


Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE: PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") would like to provide the market with an update on progress from its active exploration and development activities at the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth Project in Kenya and the Muiane Tantalum Mine in Mozambique.

Commentary on results from RC Drilling Program - Mrima Hill

As previously reported upon on 5th May 2011 (see press release titled "Further High Grade Niobium and Rare Earth Results show depth potential of Mrima Hill" through its 974 metre Reverse Circulation ("RC") drilling program PAW has confirmed Niobium and Total Rare Earth mineralization over a large lateral area (1,000m x 600m), a potential high value mix of Heavy Rare Earth Oxides and Yttrium and the extensive depth potential of Mrima Hill deposit. The following diagrams show conceptual cross sections through the Mrima Hill Niobium/Rare Earth deposit.

To view Figure 1 please click on the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/PAWFig1.pdf

As can be seen the RC drilling program with an average depth of 30 metres shows considerable exploration upside at depth compared to the historic Niobium mineralization target based on the Anglo American data of 40 to 50 million tonnes @ 0.65 to 0.75% Nb2O5(i) down to a depth of a maximum of 10 metres.

To view Figure 2 please click on the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/PAWFig2.pdf

In addition to the obvious depth potential for Niobium mineralisation the conceptual cross section above also shows the extensive potential for Rare Earth mineralisation at depth. The current diamond drilling program (see below) has been designed to test for mineralisation to depths of 100 metres vertical.

(i) Note that the potential quantities and grades of the above estimates are conceptual in nature, and there is insufficient exploration to date to define a current mineral resource and therefore it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a current mineral resource. A "qualified person" as defined under National Instrument 43-101 has not completed sufficient work to classify the above mentioned historical estimate as a current mineral resource. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource. The historical estimate is not compliant with NI 43-101 and should not be relied upon.

Current Diamond Drilling Program at Mrima Hill

As announced on 2nd May (see News Release #2011-10 titled "Pacific Wildcat Resources commences Diamond Drill Program at Mrima Hill") drilling continues on the Company's 1,700 metre diamond drilling program. Despite delays due to the drilling string being stuck in the first hole, drilling is now progressing at a satisfactory rate and the Company looks forward to completing the program over the next two months. The main objective of the program is to show further evidence of the depth potential of the Mrima Hill deposit with higher grade Niobium and Rare Earth mineralisation associated with the weathered zone. In addition portions of the diamond core will be utilised for initial metallurgical test work for Niobium and Rare Earth Elements.

This metallurgical work will be an important step in gaining a preliminary level of understanding of potential metallurgical recoveries prior to undertaking detailed metallurgical test work as part of planned Feasibility Studies in 2012.

New Niobium Resource Estimation for Mrima Hill - June 2011

Sound Mining Solutions ("SMS") Mining consultants are currently completing an analysis of the results from the 31 hole Reverse Circulation Program previously reported on the 5th of May (see press release #2011-11 and titled Further High Grade Niobium and Rare Earth Results show depth potential of Mrima Hill) compared with the historic Niobium assays from the 10 m deep Anglo American shaft work from the 1950's. Dependent on the results of this analysis it is the Company's aim to complete a National Instrument 43-101 compliant Niobium resource estimate by the end of June 2011.

Social and Environmental Assessment - Mrima Hill

The Company is pleased to report Cortec Mining Kenya Limited ("CMK") have advised Environmental and Social Impact Studies are currently underway at Mrima Hill Project, located some 70km south of Mombasa in Kenya. These studies are in relation to the proposed mining of high grade Niobium and Rare Earth minerals and the associated reforestation project.

CMK are committed to the sustainable development of the Mrima Hill Project and to facilitate this, a team of international, regional and local experts has been commissioned by CMK to undertake a detailed Social and Environmental Assessment ("SEA").

This SEA will be in accordance with the requirements set by out by The Department of Mines & Geology and the National Environmental Management Authority, as well as applicable International Best Practice.

Specialist technical surveys have already been commissioned to gather data and as part of the process, public consultation meetings are planned to start in the next two weeks.

Mining Licence and Final Closing

One of the Conditions Precedent to Final Closing of the acquisition of the 70% indirect ownership of private Kenyan company CMK is to obtain a Mining Licence over the Mrima Hill deposit by the 30th June 2011 (for further details refer to press release dated 23rd July 2010 and titled "PAW enters into conditional purchase agreement with the right to acquire the majority of a large scale Niobium/rare earth metal project"). As this will not be achieved by this date the Company and the Vendors have commenced good faith discussions with the object of obtaining an extension to the Closing Date of the Acquisition. Discussions are progressing on a positive basis and the Company will update the market in due course.

PAW has a conditional agreement to purchase two private United Kingdom Companies that between them own a 70% interest in CMK (the "Majority Shareholders"). The remaining 30% of CMK is the subject of a legal dispute. This 30% interest is not part of the 70% interest that is held by the Majority Shareholders that PAW has contracted to acquire under the Purchase Agreement and PAW is not a party to these legal proceedings.

Tantalum Production - Muiane

The commissioning of the Company's Muiane Tantalum mine in Mozambique continues in earnest. The plant is starting to achieve steady state operation although throughput is lower than originally planned primarily due to ore feed issues related to the need to improve material flow through the feed chute. To this end a water monitor is being manufactured to assist in improving the throughput and this is expected to be installed on site within the next three weeks. The Company now has sufficient Tantalum concentrates to undertake detailed analysis to obtain product specifications for marketing purposes. The Company also wishes to advise that as per its original operational plan additional capital equipment will be installed at Muiane to assist with secondary processing the Tantalum concentrate. A secondary processing facility has been manufactured by Nagrom processors in Perth, Western Australia, and the Company intends to ship this facility to Muiane in Mozambique with a departure from Perth scheduled in the next 2 weeks. Once the secondary plant is commissioned PAW's aim is to target an initial production level of between 35,000 and 75,000 lbs. of Ta2O5 per annum. The company is pleased to report Tantalum prices continue to remain strong with spot prices in excess of US $130/lb. Ta2O5.

Closing Comments

PAW's President Mr. Darren Townsend commented, "As can be seen PAW is very active on a number of fronts. We look forward to continuing the diamond drilling program to help prove the depth potential of Mrima Hill as well as, depending on the analysis of the historic work compared with the recent RC drilling results, completing the Niobium National Instrument 43-101 resource estimate. We also continue to work positively with the Vendors to extend the Closing date of the Mrima Hill transaction post 30th June 2011 and continue to successfully commission our Muiane Tantalum operation."

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.628.647 von Pirat_Micha am 09.06.11 18:51:16Der aktuelle Kursverlauf ist ja wirklich nur mehr als "Extrem" zu bezeichnen...



Ohne widerstand von der 1,50$ auf unter 0,60$ in 6 Wochen. Dabei gibt es sogar ein offenes Gap bei 1,20$. Und die Umsätze sind gering. Und das alles ohne News, im Gegenteil.

Was wird aktuell hier gespielt? Erst Gap-Close unter 0,40$ und dann auf der 1,20$? Will hier jemand noch günstig einsteigen (immerhin muss PAW noch rund 15 Mio. demnächst auftreiben)? Weiß jemand mehr und es gibt Probleme vor Ort? Auf jedenfall sieht man nicht alle Tage Charts bei denen die Bollinger Bänder 100% auseinander sind...

Bin mal gespannt wie es weitergeht - so einen Verfall von 0,90$ aus (letzes PP) hätte ich nicht erwartet.

Pacific Wildcat Resources nach Korrektur ein Kauf?
Vancouver 13.06.2011 (www.emfis.com) Obwohl der kanadische Seltenen-Erden-Explorer Pacific Wildcat Resources unlängst mit durchaus positiven Nachrichten aufwarten konnte, ist die Aktie keinesfalls für jedermann geeignet.

Wie das Unternehmen mitteilte, bestätigte das laufende Bohrprogramm auf dem Mrima Hill Niobium und Rare Earth Projekt in Kenia die Annahme einer 1.000 x 600 Meter großen Fläche, in deren Erdreich sich eine hochkonzentrierte Mixtur aus verschiedenen Seltenen-Erden-Oxiden sowie Yttrium. Gleichzeitig hat sich gezeigt, dass möglicherweise ein etwas höher gelegenes Gebiet ebenfalls hohe Gehalte an Seltenen Erden aufweisen könnte. Darüber hinaus befinden sich im Boden des Gebiets – wie auch beim zweiten Projekt der Gesellschaft in Mosambik (Alto Lignoha) – auch noch Tantal und Niob. Das auf eine Tiefe von 1.700 Metern angelegte Programm soll innerhalb der nächsten zwei Monate abgeschlossen sein

NI 43-101 konforme Ressourcen-Schätzung bis Ende Juni

Bereits für Ende Juni hat Pacific Wildcat Resources eine NI 43-101 konforme Ressourcen-Schätzung in Aussicht gestellt. Eine Machbarkeitsstudie soll bis Ende 2012 folgen. Dieser Umstand verdeutlicht, in welch einem frühen Stadium sich das Mrima-Hill-Projekt nach wie vor befindet, und dass eine Produktionsaufnahme noch in weiter Ferne liegt.

Insofern ist die Aktie ungeachtet des Umstandes, dass die gemeldete Bestätigung und eventuelle Ausweitung der Seltenen-Erden-Vorkommen erfreulich ist, ausschließlich für sehr risikofreudige Anleger geeignet, auch weil die Aktie charttechnisch alles andere als bullisch aussieht.

The report "Critical Raw Materials for the EU" listed 14 raw materials which they deemed critical to the European Union (EU).

A critical or strategic material is a commodity whose lack of availability during a national emergency would seriously affect the economic, industrial, and defensive capability of a country.

The report “Critical Raw Materials for the EU” listed 14 raw materials which they deemed critical to the European Union (EU): antimony, beryllium, cobalt, fluorspar, gallium, germanium, graphite, indium, magnesium, niobium, platinum group metals, rare earths, tantalum and tungsten.

The French Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières rates high tech metals as critical, or not, based on three criteria:

Possibility (or not) of substitution
Irreplaceable functionality
Potential supply risks

Demand is increasing for critical metals due to:

Economic growth of developing countries
Emergence of new technologies and products

Access to raw materials at competitive prices has become essential to the functioning of all industrialized economies. As we move forward developing and developed countries will, with their:

Massive population booms
Infrastructure build out and urbanization plans
Modernization programs for existing, tired and worn out infrastructure

Continue to place extraordinary demands on our ability to access and distribute the planets natural resources.

Threats to access and distribution of these commodities could include:

Political instability of supplier countries
The manipulation of supplies
The competition over supplies
Attacks on supply infrastructure
Accidents and natural disasters
Climate change

Accessing a sustainable, and secure, supply of raw materials is going to become the number one priority for all countries. Increasingly we are going to see countries ensuring their own industries have first rights of access to internally produced commodities and they will look for such privileged access from other countries.

Numerous countries are taking steps to safeguard their own supply by:

Stopping or slowing the export of natural resources
Shutting down traditional supply markets
Buying companies for their deposits
Project finance tied to off take agreements

Many countries classify cobalt as a critical or a strategic metal.

The US is the world's largest consumer of cobalt and the US also considers cobalt a strategic metal. The US has no domestic production - the United States is 100% dependent on imports for its supply of primary cobalt - currently about 15% of U.S. cobalt consumption is from recycled scrap, resulting in a net import reliance of 85%.

Although cobalt is one of the 30 most abundant elements within the earth's crust its low concentration (.002%) means it’s usually produced as a by-product - cobalt is mainly obtained as a by-product of copper and nickel mining activities.

Today 40% of the cobalt consumed in the world originated as a by-product from copper production in the West African country of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) - cobalt production in most other countries is a by-product of nickel mining.

The copper deposits in the Katanga Province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo are the top producers of cobalt and the political situation in the Congo influences the price of cobalt significantly. The politically unstable Democratic Republic of Congo contains half the world’s cobalt supply and represents the lion’s share of anticipated future cobalt supply – the DRC’s 2007 output was equal to the combined production of cobalt by Canada, Australia and Zambia.

In a nine billion dollar joint venture with the DRC China got the rights to the vast copper and cobalt resources of the North Kivu in exchange for providing $6 billion worth of road construction, two hydroelectric dams, hospitals, schools and railway links to southern Africa, to Katanga and to the Congo Atlantic port at Matadi. The other $3 billion is to be invested by China in development of new mining areas. Approximately half of known global cobalt reserves are in the DRC, and close to 40%-50% of incremental cobalt production, over the next five years, is anticipated to emanate from the DRC.

At 19.7 percent of global supply Zambia is the world’s second largest producer of copper-cobalt. According to a recently released report by the Zambian Central Bank cobalt production rose to 2,236 tons in the first quarter of 2011 from 1,989 tons last year, exports increased to 2,279 from 1,977.

China is extremely short of cobalt concentrates and needs to import cobalt concentrates in large amounts every year. The leading global producers of refined cobalt are China (39%), Finland (15%) and Canada (8%). China is a leading supplier of cobalt imports to the United States.

The cobalt market is small in comparison with other base metals. Consumers purchase cobalt through negotiated agreements, bids, and open markets from producers, traders and to a lesser degree, government stockpiles and private inventories.

Uses

Cobalt is a strategic and critical metal used in many diverse industrial and military applications.

Super alloys
Renewable Energy Re-usable energy storage systems
Wear resistant alloys
Magnets
Binder Material
Thermal spray coatings
Orthopedics
Life Science
Catalyst in de-sulfurizing crude oil and as a catalyst in hydrogenation, oxidation, reduction, and synthesis of hydrocarbons.
Gas to liquid technology (GLT)
Other Uses - Drying agents in paints, de-colorizers, dyes, pigments, and oxidizers. Promotes adherence of enamel to steel, and steel to rubber in steel belted radial tires

Conclusion

China seemingly has most of the DRC’s production of cobalt locked up, that’s up to 40% of global mined cobalt.

Cobalt is classified as a strategic/critical metal.

With the recent strong support for electric vehicles the use of cobalt in this sector alone has led to a formidable demand for the element and the US cannot continue to depend on its cobalt being supplied mostly from China.

There is no doubt in this author’s mind that cobalt’s profile will continue growing in the coming months and years.

Is cobalt on your radar screen?

If not maybe it should be.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.693.807 von Pirat_Micha am 24.06.11 10:05:57Der Verlauf ist weiterhin unglaublich. Kein Boden hält, aber die Umsätze sind weiterhin lächerlich. Aber wer hätte vor einem Monat einen Sturz unter 0,50C$ vorhergesehen?



In dem Umfeld wird wohl das GAP Ende 2010, knapp unter 0,40C$ der nächste Anlaufpunkt sein. Da kann man nur hoffen, dass PAW die 15 Mio. C$ für den Erwerb von Mrima Hill nicht jetzt durch ein PP durchziehen muss...das wäre eine Hammerverwässerung :(

Gut, wenn die Tantal-Produktion bei diesen Preisen jetzt schnell hochgefahren wird. Dennoch wird der CF erstmal nur reichen, um Muiane zu finanzieren.

Hoffentlich hat der Sommermarkt bald ein Ende...und hoffentlich kommen noch vor dem PP die ersten tieferen Bohrergebnisse :cool:

Ist wirklich ein hochspekulatives Teil - das gilt halt immer für Bewegungen in beide Richtungen ;)

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.695.488 von Pirat_Micha am 24.06.11 14:16:11Das ist richtig. Allerdings sind 35.000 lb * 130$/lb gerade mal 4,55 Mio.$ an CF - und da sind noch keine Kosten drin! Somit bleibt da eben nur soviel Geld, um das Gebiet um Muiane weiter zu explorieren und nicht mehr.

Bei 75.000 lb sind das dann zwar schon 9,75 Mio.$ CF ohne Kosten, allerdings muss man gerade zu Abbaubeginn eher mit Schwierigkeiten rechnen und somit den anderen Fall annehmen. Wenn alles läuft kann man aber schon mit ca. 5 Mio. $/Jahr an Free Cash Flow rechnen - damit kann man gut vorankommen, für beide Projekte reicht das aber eher nicht.

Ein Goldgrube wird die Tantalproduktion erst dann, wenn die Preise langfristig oben bleiben und die Produktion stark ausgeweitet wird (dafür muss man aber erstmal wissen, was genau dort liegt).

Bis dahin ist Muiane ein schönes Zubrot, was PAW von anderen REE-Explorern abhebt, aber eben nicht entscheidend ist.

Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp.: Initial Niobium Resource Estimate for Mrima Hill Exceeds 1.5 Billion Pounds

http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/pacific-wildcat-reso…

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 7, 2011) - Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the initial NI 43-101 compliant independent Niobium mineral resource estimate report for the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth Project in Kenya.

The mineral resource estimate was prepared by ExplorMine Consultants ("ExplorMine") of Johannesburg, South Africa. The table below shows the results of the mineral resource estimate as follows:
Mineral Resource Tonnes Average Nb2O5 Pounds
Category (Millions) Nb2O5(%) (millions)
Measured - - -
Indicated - - -
Inferred 105.3 0.65 1,519

Mineral Resource tabulation for Nb2O5 for Mrima Hill, Kenya at a 0.2% Nb2O5 cut-off. Figures have been rounded off to the appropriate level of accuracy.
The effective date of the mineral resource estimate presented above is 6th July, 2011.
This mineral resource estimate includes technical information which requires subsequent estimates to derive totals and weighted averages. Such estimations inherently involve a degree of rounding and consequently introduce a margin of error. Where these occur, ExplorMine does not consider them to be material.

The Niobium mineral resource estimate is from surface down to a maximum depth of 30 metres with 83% of the mineral resource tonnes being found in the top 20 metres. ExplorMine are of the view that with additional surface survey information a significant portion of the inferred classification may be able to be reclassified into the Indicated category.

As can be seen from the mineral resource estimate grade tonnage curve below, a significant portion of the mineral resource is high grade with 12.0 million tonnes of mineralisation having a grade of 1.21% Nb2O5 at a 1.00% Nb2O5 cut-off grade.

To view Figures 1 and 2 please click on the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/0707PAW.pdf

PAW's President Mr. Darren Townsend commented, "We are very pleased with this initial Niobium mineral resource estimate given how shallow the mineral resource is as well as the high grade nature of the deposit. It shows the large size potential of the deposit and I am confident the 1,500 metres deeper diamond drilling program we are currently undertaking will continue to show the depth potential of the deposit."

Mineral Resource Estimate Methodology

The mineral resource estimation methodology was Ordinary Kriging interpolation of blocks with a block size of 100m (x) x 100m (y) x 2.5 m (z). A well-defined grade model was obtained by constraining the upper limit of the Nb2O5 95% confidence limit spread to 30%. The horizontal extent of the Resource was constrained by historical geological mapping by Anglo American.

The mineral resource estimate is based on:

A database of 31 RC drill holes drilled by PAW during 2011 and the results are summarized in Appendix 1.
A database of 410 Anglo American pits from 1955 generally sunk to approximately 9m depth from surface.
All RC drill hole assays were performed by Ultra Trace Assay Labs in Perth using XRF assay techniques for niobium.
Historical Anglo American assays were undertaken locally in Kenya under Anglo American supervision using chromatographic techniques with regular checks in the central South African laboratory using both spectrophotometric and chromatographic techniques. An extensive validation exercise was undertaken by ExplorMine to confirm that these assay results could be used in the mineral resource estimate.
Specific gravity used the overall mean of 1.84 t/m3.
Geological losses of between 10 and 15% have been applied depending on mineral resource estimation confidence levels.
All grades are based on weight percent.

The Niobium Market

Niobium is an advanced metal used in a variety of uses including high strength, low alloy steels. "Niobium represents a small percentage of the raw material cost of steel making, but adds significant value by improving strength, durability, weight and flexibility. Substitutes, such as ferrovanadium have inferior physical characteristics and comparatively higher prices and generally lower added value, mitigating the risk of substitution" (IAMGOLD 4 May 2011. Niobium consumption has increased at approximately double the rate of steel over the past 10 years and the current FeNb price is approx. US $ 46/kg Nb (source Metal Pages – Ferro Niobium 65% - 30/6/11).

About the Mrima Hill Project

The Mrima Hill Project is located in the southeast of Kenya and is 70 kilometres south of Mombasa, the largest port in East Africa. The ground area covered by the Mrima Hill licences is 1,180 sq. km.

Mrima Hill also has significant Rare Earth Oxide ("REO") mineralisation located coincidently and in close proximity to the Niobium deposit at Mrima Hill. Binge FW (1955) reports a total of 32 million tonnes of mineralisation at 3.1% REO in the surface weathered profile down to approximately 8m depth (for further details refer to press release dated 23rd July 2010 and titled "PAW enters into conditional purchase agreement with the right to acquire the majority of a large scale Niobium/Rare Earth metal project").

Note that the potential quantities and grades of the above REO estimates are conceptual in nature, and there is insufficient exploration to date to define a mineral resource and therefore it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.

Pacific Wildcat Resources Corporation engages in the exploration
and development of mineral and metal properties. The company
primarily focuses on tantalum deposits in Mozambique. It
principally holds interests in seven mining leases covering
approximately 450 square kilometres, located on parts of the Alto
Ligonha pegmatite belt, Mozambique. The company is based in
Kelowna, B.C., Canada.
 Pacific Wildcat’s main project is the Mrima rare earth and
niobium deposit near Mombasa on the Kenyan coast. It is
located close to essential infrastructure with sealed roads. The
main power source runs adjacent to the deposit, and the
property is less than 100 kilometres from the largest deep
water port in East Africa.
 Estimated inferred resources are 105.3 million tonnes at a
grade of 0.65% Nb2O5 which equates to 1,519 million pounds
of contained resources. Based on historical data from the
Anglo American exploration period, the deposit may contain a
high-grade zone of 10–15 million tonnes at 1.2–1.45% Nb2O5
based on a cut-off grade of 1.0% Nb2O5. These estimates
suggest that the Mrima deposit has the potential to become a
world-class resource.
 The resource is located within 30 metres of surface and is
contained in weathered carbonatite, which usually requires
low-cost mining techniques.
 The deposit also contains rare earth elements and the
company plans to self-fund the rare earth opportunity with the
future excess cash, generated from the niobium business.
 Brazil is the world’s largest producer of niobium, supplying
nearly 90% of the market. It is reasonable to assume that
buyers don't want a single source of supply and would
encourage other sources like the Mrima property. Thus, the
Mrima project could become a significant source of niobium.
 Pacific Wildcat also owns the Muiane tantalum mine in
Mozambique, which contains 1.4 million tonnes grading 250
ppm of tantalum Ta2O5. The company is currently evaluating
the property.

PAW Announces Closing of Non-Brokered Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 9, 2011) - Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") wishes to announce the closing of the non-brokered private placement (the "Financing") as previously announced in the Press Release titled "PAW Announces Non Brokered Private Placement" and dated 19th July 2011.

The non-brokered private placement resulted in the issuance of 8,570,606 Units at a price of $0.65 for gross proceeds to the Company of CDN $5,570,894. Each Unit consists of one common share and one half of one common share warrant (each whole warrant a "Warrant"), entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share at a price of $1.00 for 18 months from Closing. The Warrants are subject to an accelerated expiry which comes into effect once the shares trade above a weighted average price of $1.25 for any twenty consecutive trading-day period, subsequent to four months and a day from Closing ("Accelerated Expiry"). In the event of an Accelerated Expiry, the expiry date will be the earlier of the regular 18 month expiry date and 30 days from the date the Company advises the placees of the Accelerated Expiry.

Finders' fees of 6% cash and 6% warrants ("Finders Warrant") were paid on a portion of the Financing, in accordance with the policies of the Exchange. Each Finders Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share (a "Finders Share") at a price of $0.65 per Finder Share for a period of 18 months from issuance and on the same terms as the Warrants for aggregate cash payments of CDN $312,856 and 481,317 Finders Warrants.

The net proceeds from this private placement will be used to further advance the acquisition of the Company's interest in its Mrima Hill Project in Kenya, continued development at its Muaine Tantalum Project in Mozambique and for general working capital purposes.

In accordance with securities legislation currently in effect, the Shares, the Warrants and the Warrant Shares issued pursuant to the Financing will have a restricted "hold" period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance of the Financing.

The Company is also pleased to announce the receipt of CAD $958,724 during June and July 2011 from the early exercise of warrants. In addition, as a potential funding source, PAW still has 7,932,550 (CAD $2,379,765) in the money 30 cent warrants.

PAW's President Mr. Darren Townsend commented, "The combination of the completion of this placement and the in the money nature of PAW's warrant position leaves the Company well-funded for the completion of the current 1,500 metres diamond drilling program testing depth extensions to the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth deposit. In addition the Company is planning, subject to receiving applicable approvals, to commence a 6,000 metre Rare Earth resource drilling program in the December quarter. We look forward to this important phase of work for the Mrima Hill project, the completion of which should allow the Company to progress into feasibility studies in 2012."

Current Diamond Drilling Program at Mrima Hill (s. News 10. Juni)
As announced on 2nd May (see News Release #2011-10 titled “Pacific Wildcat Resources
commences Diamond Drill Program at Mrima Hill”) drilling continues on the Company’s
1,700 metre diamond drilling program. Despite delays due to the drilling string being stuck in
the first hole, drilling is now progressing at a satisfactory rate and the Company looks
forward to completing the program over the next two months. The main objective of the
program is to show further evidence of the depth potential of the Mrima Hill deposit with
higher grade Niobium and Rare Earth mineralisation associated with the weathered zone.


Der Chart positioniert sich auch schonmal. Alle Kurse um die 0,50C$ könnten sich bald als ein guter Einstiegszeitpunkt herausstellen...das offene GAP bei 1,20C$ (Mitte Mai) existiert zumindest noch ;)



Allerdings gibt es auch noch immer die negative Seite. Wenn die Ergebnisse nicht die guten REE- und Niob-Werte in der Tiefe zeigen, könnte es ungemütlich werden. Das vorherige PP zu 0,22C$ ist noch gut im Geld und PAW braucht Ende des Jahres definitiv nochmal Geld, um ihren 70%igen Anteil an Mrima Hill zu bekommen. Das aktuelle PP hat ja nicht soviel Geld eingespült, wie gedacht...
Ebenfalls scheinen wieder Gerüchte wegen dem heiligen Platz auf Mrima Hill aufzukommen (s. Stockhouse

Die nächsten Wochen könnten spannend werden :look:

Q&A with Pacific Wildcat Resources (V.PAW) President & CEO Darren Townsend

Since we last spoke in March what has Pacific Wildcat Resources (TSX: V.PAW, Stock Forum) done to increase shareholder value?

We have completed the inaugural NI 43-101 compliant Niobium resource estimate for Mrima Hill for an inferred resource in excess of 1.5 billion pounds of Nb2O5.

In addition we are more than half way through a 1,500 metre diamond drilling program targeting depth extensions to the Niobium resource as well as depth extensions to the known rare earth mineralization. The samples from the first four and a half holes are now in the lab and we wait with eager anticipation the results. On other fronts we are well advanced with completing the Environmental Impact Assessment and preparations for a Mining License application for Mrima Hill. We expect this application to be made prior to the end of October.

On April 14, your company responded publicly to Kenyan newspaper coverage of a group called the Kaya Mrima Self Help Group and their alleged dissatisfaction with exploration and mining activities taking place on your Mrima Hill project. Has this issue been resolved?

We have noticed from time to time inaccurate media articles. We have had a number of meetings with the Kaya Mrima Group and the discussions continue to be very positive and the group is very supportive of our activities. We are well advanced on formalizing our dealing with the community and will work closely with appropriate sections of the government in Kenya to progress this matter.

Pacific Wildcat, on July 7, released an initial NI 43-101 compliant independent Niobium mineral resource estimate report for the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth Project in Kenya, which showed an Inferred Resource in excess of 1.5 billion pounds of niobium. What is the significance of this for your company?

This is an excellent result for an initial resource estimate. 83% of the Niobium resource is contained in the top 20 metres from the surface and the maximum we have extended the resource down to is 30 metres below the surface. We believe the current diamond drilling (to about 100 metres deep) will show the extensive upside potential to the resource and in my view we are dealing with a Niobium deposit that may be proved to be in the top five deposits in the world.

What needs to be done to bring this resource into the Measured and Indicated category?

We expect by the completion of a detailed topographical survey to be able to move a significant portion of the resource into an indicated category. Further drilling as part of the lead in to feasibility studies next year will be required to further increase the confidence level of the resource estimate.

What kind of Niobium grades do you need to make this project economic?

We are yet to complete any feasibility studies/reserve calculations but as a comparator Iamgold's Niobec operation in Canada is mining Niobium underground at a head grade of 0.5% Nb2O5from over 300 metres below the surface and currently making a margin in excess of $80 million per annum. We are focused on an initial high grade 1.2% Nb2O5 feed grade, near surface, phased open pit mine and expect that the future feasibility studies will show this to be a profitable, long-life asset.

Any estimates as to how much money you will need to bring this project into production?

Some very rough capital estimates show a cost of between US$100 million and $150 million for the initial high grade niobium operation.

What type of mining operation are you expecting to employ?

We except low-cost, open-pit mining in phases that allow us to rehabilitate the mine as we progress.

Are you looking to bring in any joint venture partners?

At this stage we are happy to continue to fund the project through equity placements but the door is open to discuss with third parties potential funding options

What type of support, if any, are you getting from the government of Kenya?

We have been getting great support from the Commissioner of Mines Mr. Moses Masibo and I have recently returned from a site visit with the Commissioner as well as with Honorable Mr. Michuki – Minister for Environment and Natural Resources. This visit was very productive and it was great for PAW to have the opportunity to brief the Minister on our activities and on the importance of the Mrima Hill asset.

Where does Pacific Wildcat Resources go from here?

Moving forward we are scheduled to move into rare earth resource drilling at Mrima Hill in the last quarter of 2011. This will allow investors to better appreciate the significance of the Mrima Hill asset. In addition we continue to add additional secondary processing equipment and commission our Tantalum operation at Muiane in Mozambique with a move towards cash flow positive production.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.990.883 von Pirat_Micha am 23.08.11 16:13:37Danke für den Artikel mit dem "Chef". Sind ein paar sehr interessante Passagen enthalten:

*"The samples from the first four and a half holes are now in the lab and we wait with eager anticipation the results."
--> Neben der Finanzierung von Mrima Hill sind die Ergebnisse von den 100m Bohrlöchern wohl der entscheidende Katalysator für den Kurs - die Werte könnten nach der Aussage jederzeit veröffentlicht werden :lick:

*"We have noticed from time to time inaccurate media articles. We have had a number of meetings with the Kaya Mrima Group and the discussions continue to be very positive and the group is very supportive of our activities. We are well advanced on formalizing our dealing with the community and will work closely with appropriate sections of the government in Kenya to progress this matter."
--> da Vertrauen die erste Basis bei einem Investment sind, nehm ich die Aussagen als wahr an - es gibt also keine Probleme mit den Natives vor Ort! (wie immer wieder behauptet wird)

*"[...] we are dealing with a Niobium deposit that may be proved to be in the top five deposits in the world"
--> das steht für sich :cool:

*"Some very rough capital estimates show a cost of between US$100 million and $150 million for the initial high grade niobium operation"
--> Die Kosten für die Ausbeutung des Niob-Vorkommens wären recht günstig und würde die nachfolgende Seltene Erden-Mine (z.T.) finanzieren

*"In addition we continue to add additional secondary processing equipment and commission our Tantalum operation at Muiane in Mozambique with a move towards cash flow positive production."
--> nicht vergessen, PAW hat eine produzierende Tantal-Mine, wenn auch vorerst in sehr kleinem Umfang. Bin mal auf die ersten Ergebnisse gespannt...

PAW Signs Conditional Memorandum of Understanding with Community Group

Quelle

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2011) - Canada: Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into a conditional Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with the Kaya Mrima Self Help Group ("KMSHG"). The KMSHG is registered with the Ministry of Home Affairs, National Heritage and Sports and the Ministry of Gender and Children Affairs in Kenya as an organization representing the local community at Mrima Hill including the villages surrounding the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth Deposit. The parties are to prepare and sign a formal agreement within a period of three months.

The terms of the MOU are confidential but are typical of community agreements in providing benefits for the community whilst Cortec Mining Kenya ("CMK") with technical assistance from PAW undertake exploration activities at the Mrima Hill property in Kenya and also complete all such activities as necessary to seek approval for a Mining License ("ML"). Such ML will be subject to normal application process including completion of an Environmental Impact Assessment and ML Application.

This formalizes many months of discussion with the KMSHG and focuses on assisting the Mrima Hill Community with education, health, culture, protection of biodiversity and business development pursuits in conjunction with employment and local contracting opportunities. As part of the formalization of the process the parties will work together with the applicable government agencies to register the entity as the Mrima Hill Trust.

To view accompanying photo, visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/Photo0831.pdf

PAW's President Mr. Darren Townsend commented, "We are very pleased to have signed this MOU with the KMSHG. We look forward to working with the community and applicable government agencies in putting in place a formal agreement and the governance structures. We remain firmly committed to working with the community and the Government with a view towards obtaining a Mining License for the Mrima Hill project."

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF PACIFIC WILDCAT RESOURCES CORP.
Darren Townsend, President

------------------------

Auf der 0,68C$ scheint noch ein Widerstand zu liegen...prinzipiell ist nun Luft bis 0,85/0,90C$. Jetzt noch die ersten, positiven Tiefen-BEs von Mrima Hill und das Gap bei 1,20C$ könnte doch recht schnell geschlossen werden ;)

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.027.466 von Pirat_Micha am 31.08.11 17:54:52Leider wurde das Gap gestern nicht geschlossen. Somit sollten wir erstmal seitwärts laufen, bis es bei 0,59C$ geschlossen ist.

Ich bin dennoch der Meinung, dass wir bis an die 0,90C$ in den nächsten Wochen laufen werden. Natürlich in Abhängigkeit von möglichen BEs. Aber PAW macht einen guten Job. Zuerst gab es Probleme mit der Finanzierung (man kann ihnen allerdings vorwerfen, die guten Kurse über 1,20C$ nicht zu einem PP genutzt zu haben!) - die wurden durch die Verlängerung bis Anfang des nächsten Jahres zumindest erstmal verschoben, in der Hoffnung dann wieder Kurse über 1C$ nutzen zu können.

Jetzt haben sie die Probleme mit den Natives vor Ort (fast) komplett gelöst. Wieder ein sehr wichtiger Schritt. Wenn jetzt noch die Tiefe des Vorkommens von 30m auf 100m verdreifacht werden kann, sollten die aktuellen Kurse der Vergangenheit angehören...schon heftig, wenn man bedenkt, dass wir schon bei 1,8C$ dieses Jahr standen und sich einiges zum positiven verändert hat :look: (allerdings halte ich solche Kurse vorerst für zu überteutert)

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.030.247 von Pirat_Micha am 01.09.11 10:37:16Guten Morgen,

prinzipiell würde ich dir zustimmen. Allerdings habe ich es schon so oft gesehen, dass gute Explorer sich nicht bewegen, weil noch irgendwo ein GAP offen ist, auch nach vielen Monaten (egal wie jung das Unternehmen ist, nur die Vola ist dadurch noch höher).

Ich habe es mir daher angewöhnt meine Positionen 50-50 zu handeln, eine Hälfte fundamental und die andere charttechnisch. Aus diesem Grund hoffe ich auf ein GAP-Close heute (reicht ein 500er Umsatz), ehe nächste Woche vlt die ersten BEs kommen...ich hätte ungern hier unten ein GAP, wenn es denn weiter hochgeht (1.Ziel wären die 0,90$ und danach das GAP bei 1,20$ - da ist es mal positiv :p ). Aktuell ist der Umsatz in CAN aber noch zu gering für einen nachhaltigen Ausbruch.

Und in Deutschland kann man PAW nicht sinnvoll handeln - da ist der Umsatz ja fast negativ ;) Ohne PR wird sich das auch nicht ändern. Aber das muss nichts schlechtes heißen, wenn es hier so ruhig ist.

Wow, hab schon knapp 50% plus mit der Aktie. Bin mal gespannt, wann das "sell" ausgegeben wird. I like that kitty :)

der letzte Abschnitt aus der Empfehlung von Kingstrade

Mitte Juli kündigte Pacific Wildcat ein non-brokered Private Placement an, das mit 09.08.2011 abgeschlossen wurde. Dabei wurden 8,57 Mio. Units zu einem Preis von 0,65 Cent pro Unit ausgegeben, was zu Einnahmen von 5,6 Mio.Ca$ führte. Jede Unit besteht aus einer Stammaktie und einer Hälfte einer Aktienkaufbefugnis (Warrant), die den Halter zum Kauf einer weiteren Aktie zu einem Preis von 1 Ca$ binnen 18 Monaten berechtigt. Mit dieser Finanzierung ist das Unternehmen erstmals gut aufgestellt, da man bereits im Juni und Juli aus der frühen Ausübung von Warrants Einnahmen von 958.724 Ca$ erzielte. Zusätzlich hält die Gesellschaft immer noch 7,93 Millionen "in the money Warrants" zu je 30 Cent, also für 2,38 Mio.Ca$.

Durch die Inbetriebnahme der Muiane-Mine seit Anfang 2011 sollte das Unternehmen zudem weitere Mittel aus dem Verkauf des gewonnenen Tantals generieren können.

Die Finanzierung von 1500 Meter an Diamantbohrungen zur Prüfung der Tiefen-Erweiterungen auf dem Mrima Hill Niob und Seltene Erden-Projekt ist damit mehr als gesichert. Hinzu plant die Gesellschaft mit Erhalt der Genehmigungen, noch im Dezember-Quartal mit einem Bohrprogramm über 6.000 Meter zu beginnen, um die Seltene Erden-Mineralisierung zu prüfen und damit im Prozess für eine Machbarkeitsstudie in 2012 weiter zu kommen.

Durch die offentsichtliche Bodenbildung und der allein schon charttechnisch zu erwartenden Erholung der Aktie verfügt das Wertpapier in 2012 über einiges Potenzial bei begrenztem Risiko, insofern Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. nicht nur ein Explorer, sondern durch den Betrieb seiner Tantal-Mine auch Produzent ist. Ein Trailing Stopp Loss ist dennoch zu setzen, insofern die Aktie erwiesener Maßen über ein hohe Volatilität verfügt.

PAW Diamond Drill Assay Results Return High Grade Niobium and REO Mineralisation and Indicates Significant Niobium and REO Depth Potential at Mrima Hill
9/13/2011 9:36:16 AM - Market Wire

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 13, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE: PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") is pleased to report first assay results for the first 444 (4.5 holes) metres of its initial diamond drill program at Mrima Hill Project, located 70 kilometres south of Mombasa, Kenya. This program was designed to provide core for metallurgical test work as well as test the depth potential of the Niobium and Rare Earth Oxide mineralisation at Mrima Hill.

Highlights


-- High grade Niobium and Rare Earth Oxide ("REO") mineralisation is shown
to be consistent throughout the weathered zone.
-- Mineralisation extends at depths greater than 130 metres below surface
-- All completed holes finishing in mineralisation
-- Potential high value mix of Heavy Rare Earth Oxides and Yttrium
confirmed at depth



Results

Significant Niobium and REO mineralisation was encountered in all five diamond drill holes that are the subject of this media release. See Figure 1 for a map showing the location of diamond holes.

Significant Rare Earth Results

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.081.065 von Pirat_Micha am 13.09.11 15:54:20Da wartet man Wochen auf die News und dann ist man mal 1 Tag nich da...:p

Die News scahut man sich am Besten über die Website von PAW an. Da sieht man einige Details besser.
http://www.pacificwildcat.com/_content/documents/417.pdf

Man sieht z.B. das DD003 und DD004 die bisher mit Abstand südwestlichsten DHs auf dem Gebiet sind. Haben sie was gefunden?
- DD003 12m@5,48% TREO ab 23m und 17,3m@4,43% TREO ab 70,5m Tiefe
+11,5m@1,05% Nb2O5 ab 70m Tiefe
- DD004 37m@5,72% TREO ab 50m
+40m@0,75% Nb2O5 und 37m@0,90% Nb2O5 ab 50m Tiefe

Das sind imho super Werte für 2 quasi Step-Out Holes! Damit können ein weiterer Teil der Inferred auf jedenfall in Indicated umgewandelt werden.

Problem der Ergebnisse: Dadurch dass sie Schwierigkeiten beim Bohren hatten, konnte man z.B. bei DD003 über die Hälfte des Cores nicht retten und somit gibt es riesige Lücken bei den Ergebnissen (46m von 89m bei DD003 konnten nicht ausgewertet werden). Daher sieht man bei der News auch keine Längen, wie sie erwartet wurden (z.B. 100m@5% TREO)! Das heißt aber nicht - wie es der Kurs gestern wohl gesehen hat - dass die Grades und Längen schwach sind, sondern dass PAW dort einfach nochmal bohren muss, um dann die Cores komplett zu berichten. Und die werden richtig groß...alle Löcher endeten in Mineralisierung, selbst bei 130m Tiefe - wow :eek:

Die anderen DH sind auch mehr als ordentlich, eines will ich noch nennen.

- DD001 21m@11,26% TREO ab 15m Tiefe
+ 21m@0,75% Nb2O5 ab 15m Tiefe

Leider sind bei dem Loch die ersten 15m ebenfalls nicht auswertbar gewesen...:cry:
Allerdings sieht man die unglaublichen Grades im Hauptgebiet für das REE-Projekt. Was hier auf den ersten 30-40m liegt und einfach abgebuddelt werden könnte...:D Aber bis dahin ist noch ein weiter Weg. Neben Finanzierung wäre da noch die Metallurgie - das schwierigste bei solch einem Projekt, wo viele Elemente voneinander getrennt und recovered werden müssen.

In Stockhouse wird dagegen diskutiert, ob der Einstieg von Argonaut nicht bald den Einstieg eines finanzkräftigen Investors zur Folge hat. Abwarten.

Es liegen auf jedenfall noch spannende NRs vor uns. Schließlich sind erst 444m von ca. 1500m berichtet. Und wenn man sich die Bohrkarte anschaut, sind noch einige "Infill"-Bohrungen die, Auswertbarkeit vorausgesetzt, die 100m@5% TREO durchaus bringen könnten :cool:

Hallo & guten Morgen !

Danke für die gute kurze Zusammenfassung ! Die Meldung war nicht perfekt, aber zeigt welches Potenzial PAW noch hat,aber das hast Du ja schon sehr gut erläutert !

Du schreibst ... "Allerdings sieht man die unglaublichen Grades im Hauptgebiet für das REE-Projekt. Was hier auf den ersten 30-40m liegt und einfach abgebuddelt werden könnte...:D Aber bis dahin ist noch ein weiter Weg. Neben Finanzierung wäre da noch die Metallurgie - das schwierigste bei solch einem Projekt, wo viele Elemente voneinander getrennt und recovered werden müssen...."

Ich werde dem Chef von PAW im Laufe dieser Woche mal ein Mail schicken und ihn folgendes Fragen :

Da die Zusammensetzung der REE´s fast identisch mit dem Lynas-Projekt ist und Lynas aus Malawi REE´s nach Malaysia verschiffen wird, wäre es doch eine alternative das "Rohmaterial" an Lynas zu verkaufen und zu deren Aufbereitungsanlage zubringen. Lynas wird es ja auch von Afrika nach Malaysia verschiffen. Vermute dass Bahnlinien in der nähe der Projekte vorhanden sind (Transport per Güterzug)

Klar würde man damit nicht die Milliarden Gewinne machen wie z.B. Lynas,jedoch ist das Risiko geringer dass das Projekt nicht finanzierbar wird.

Was haltet ihr bzw Du von so einer Variante ??

Da die Tantal Produktion immer noch nicht angelaufen ist, gehe ich davon aus das Afrika ein schwieriger
Ort ist, dort schnell und effizient Projekte durchzuführen !

Daher meine Überlegung die REE´s zwar selbst abzubauen , aber dann im Roh-Zustand direkt zuverkaufen !!

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.084.377 von Pirat_Micha am 14.09.11 10:09:40Hmm...du meinst, man sollte das Gestein vor Ort nur abbauen und direkt verkaufen, um es woanders zu trennen und weiterzuverarbeiten? *grübel*

Darüber habe ich mir noch gar keine Gedanken gemacht, weil eben noch ein seeehr langer Weg vor uns liegt. Mit der Finanzierung meinte ich eigentlich erstmal die offene Zahlung an CORTEC von rund 15 Mio. A$ zum Ende des Jahres / Anfang 2012, um überhaupt erstmal 70% an Mrima Hill zu halten! Bisher haben sie ja nur 5 oder 10%.

Eine Umsetzung der Mine steht dann auf einem anderen Blatt. Die Idee des Managements ist es ja, das Niob abzubauen und den Cash-Flow für die folgende REE-Mine zu nutzen. Der Hauptteil des Gewinnes liegt sicherlich in der Trennung der vielen Elemente. Daher kann ich mir nicht vorstellen, dass das direkte Verschiffen des Gesteins eine Alternative darstellt...
Allerdings habe ich mich damit noch nicht weiter beschäftgt, daher kann ich dir da keine sinnvolle Meinung dazu geben ;)

Die Tantal-Produktion in Muiane sollte von Anfang an nur langsam anlaufen, um bisschen Erfahrung damit zu sammeln. Volle Produktion (die eh relativ klein ist) soll erst 2012 erreicht werden - zumindest hab ich das so in Erinnerung.

Also die Möglichkeit das Material bei Mrima Hill einfach abzubauen, die 70km zur Küste zu fahren und dann runter zu verschiffen ist sicherlich gegeben. Ob es sinnvoll ist, ist eine andere Sache.

Du beziehst dich sicherlich bei der Lynas-Präsentation auf "Unassambled gravity separation concentration equipment included in sale". Ich hab davon noch nicht gehört. Aber wie du schon erwähnt hast, sind die Grades durchaus mit KGK zu vergleichen, also wäre das eventuell möglich :look:

Fragen kostet ja nix, mal schaun was sie antworten ;)

Hi Mr. xxx
Many thanks for your positive feedback. We are certainly very happy with the results. The composition of the REO's is very similar to Lynas. We will continue to look at all options for our potential future production scenarios. We have excellent infrastructure with Mombasa the largest port in East Africa 70 km up a sealed road to the north of the project. We are currently updating our presentation and hope to have something on the web site in the next few weeks (subject to approval by our lawyers)

Kenya closer to opening Sh270bn rare metal mine


..........Cortec will apply for a mining lease before the end of this year when the ongoing environmental impact assessment is complete” said Mr Anderson, adding “At the present market prices, the deposits are worth about $3 billion.”

In the notice to investors, Pacific Wildcat reported that Niobium and the other rare minerals occurred consistently over the covered ground and existed deeper than 30 metres below the surface, alluding to the fact that the deposits were substantial.

“These first diamond results confirm the significant depth potential to the Mrima Hill deposit. As can be seen from the cross sections we have now proved the high grade Niobium mineralisation extends at depths substantially deeper than the initial Inferred Niobium resource which is limited to a depth of 30 metres,” said Darren Townsend, the company’s president in a statement.

“The drilling also indicates the Rare Earth Oxides (ROE) mineralisation extends to significant depths, supporting the potential for a considerable REO resource,” added the statement dated September 13.

Mr Masibo said Niobium is a high specialty mineral used in strengthening steel in the application of spacecraft parts, whose use as a consequence of new technological innovations has surged globally.......................

Vorsicht ist dennoch geboten..immer daran denken, PAW hält derzeit nur 10% an Mrima Hill und für 60% müssen sie noch 15 Mio. A$ bis Anfang des nächsten Jahres aufbringen! Mit Argonaut im Rücken schaffen sie das auch, aber zu welchen Kursen? Bei 0,40C$ wären das mal eben fast 40 Mio. neue Aktien + 27 Mio. Aktien die eh noch für die Transaktion dazu kommen - eine so große Verwässerung, wäre für die langfristige Entwicklung richtig schlecht.

PAW Diamond Drill Assay Results Continue to Return High Grade Niobium and REO Mineralisation and Confirms Depth Potential at Mrima Hill

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2011) - Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") is pleased to report assay results from the second batch of 471 metres (3.5 holes) of a 1,540 metre diamond drilling program at the Mrima Hill Project in Kenya.

Highlights
- High grade and wide intercepts of niobium mineralisation intersected in the weathered zone including 2.03% Nb2O5 from surface to 51.95m and 1.30% Nb2O5 from 23.4m to 123.65 m (which includes 39.6m at 1.70% Nb2O5 previously reported on September 13th, 2011);
- Wide high grade Total Rare Earth Oxide ("TREO") intercepts at depth with 5.69% TREO from 50.85m to 89.35 m;
- Wide High Grade Rare Earth Oxide intercepts 4.85% TREO from surface to 46.1 m and 4.60% TREO from surface to 46.45 m.
- Rare Earth and Niobium mineralisation shown to extend below 100m depth from surface;
- Potential high value mix of Heavy Rare Earth Oxides and Yttrium confirmed at depth; and
- Potential Rare Earth Oxide resource drilling target now confirmed.

Results
Significant Niobium and TREO mineralisation was encountered in all four diamond drill holes that are the subject of this media release. See Figure 1 for a map showing the location of diamond holes.

Significant Rare Earth Results
DRILL HOLE INTERSECTION

PAWDD005: 4.85% TREO from 23.40m to 69.5 m (46.1m width),* and
2.76% TREO from 72.50m to 101.65 m (29.15m width) and
1.99% TREO from 110.15m to 118.15 m (8m width)

PAWDD007: 2.69% TREO from surface to 13.2 m (13.2m width), and
1.37% TREO from 70.0m to 74.0m (4.0m width), and
2.04% TREO from 103.0m to 107.0 m (4.0m width)

PAWDD008: 4.60% TREO from surface to 46.45 m (46.45m width)

PAWDD009: 5.03% TREO from 0.5m to 25.85m (25.35m width), ** and
2.94% TREO from 36.35m to 38.35 (2.5m width), and
3.66% TREO from 43.85m to 46.85m (3m width), and
5.69% TREO from 50.85m to 89.35m (38.5m width), ** and
4.81% TREO from 91.85m to 109.85 m (18m width), and
1.76% TREO from 119.35m to 141.35 m (22m width)
* 0-63m previously reported in the news release #2011-20 on 13th September 2011
** Intercept includes internal dilution intervals (each up to 2m) recorded at zero grade where insufficient sample returned

The assay results reported for TREO are analysed from the Genalysis Laboratory in Perth using peroxide fusion and acid dissolution with ICP-MS finish. All samples collected were from cutting the HQ3 diameter core in half which was drilled by triple tube techniques. Table 1 provides a summary of the TREO results.

Significant Niobium Results
DRILL HOLE INTERSECTION

PAWDD005: 1.30% Nb2O5 from 23.4m to 123.65 (100.25m width)*

PAWDD007: 0.58% Nb2O5 from surface to 13.2m (13.2m width), and
0.90% Nb2O5 from 103m to 107m (4m width) (note between 13.2-84.5m a total of 50.1m not assayed or reported due to poor sample return)

PAWDD008: 2.03% Nb2O5 from surface to 51.95m (51.95m width), and
0.72% Nb2O5 from 75.85m to 89.4m (10.55m width)

PAWDD009: 0.56% Nb2O5 from 4.35m to 11.85m (7.5m width)
0.74% Nb2O5 from 21.85m to 25.85m (4m width)
0.62% Nb2O5 from 50.85m to 89.35m (38.5m width) **
0.55% Nb2O5 from 91.85m to 103.35m (11.5m width)
* 0-63m previously reported in the news release #2011-20 on 13th September 2011
** Intercept includes internal dilution intervals (each up to 2m) recorded at zero grade where insufficient sample returned

These reported Niobium results are from the Ultratrace assay labs in Perth using XRF assay techniques. All samples collected were from cutting the HQ3 diameter core into half which was drilled by triple tube techniques. All sample preparation was undertaken by the Nagrom assay labs in Perth with prepared samples dispatched to both the Ultratrace and Genalysis assay labs in Perth. Please refer to Table 3 for a summary of Niobium results.

Drilling was carried out through regolith and an underlying saprolitic clay layer aiming to extend through the saprolite weathered zone into weathered or fresh carbonatite bedrock. This was achieved by all holes apart from PAWDD008 which finished in saprolite due to ground conditions.

Sample interval lengths ranged from one to three metres depending upon the recovery and geological boundaries. Issues with recovery occurred due to a combination of regolith and clays being washed away during drilling, zones of partially weathered carbonatite rubble blocking the bit and the presence of cavities which are currently estimated to make up 3 to 8% of both the regolith and clay profile. Recovery issues were addressed during the programs duration, showing a marked improvement as the program has progressed. Where recovery for the interval fell below 30%, results have not been quoted (unless specific mention has been made). Ongoing density testing shows that the saprolite and regolith have a specific gravity of ~1.85-2.05 t/m3.

Hole PAWDD005 was extended from 63m (as previously reported on the 13th September 2011). PAWDD006 was considered to have unacceptable recovery and was re-drilled as hole PAWDD008.

Core recovery in the intervals reported was acceptable being generally in the range of 60-70% or better and this is recorded in Tables 1 and 3.

Heavy Rare Earth Oxides plus Yttrium Content

Based on the results from the diamond core assays to date (915metres) the combined Yttrium and Heavy REO percentage (expressed as a percentage of the total proportion of Total REO plus Yttrium) is 10.82%. This represents a relatively high proportion of Heavy REO's plus Yttrium when compared to many other mineral deposits and represents a potential high value product (see the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/paw-taba.pdf).

Depth Potential
As can be seen from Figure 4 the recent diamond drilling program has substantially extended the depth potential of the Niobium mineralisation from that identified in the Reverse Circulation drilling previously announced on the 27th of April and the 5th of May 2011. The Company has previously announced on the 7th of July 2011 a NI 43-101 compliant independent Inferred Niobium resource of 105.3Mt at 0.65% Nb2O5 which was restricted to a maximum depth of 30 metres from surface. These results show the potential to significantly increase this stated resource with further deep drilling.

The diamond drilling results also demonstrate the significant depth potential of the REO mineralisation as illustrated in Figure 5. Together with the previous Reverse Circulation drilling these results have shown that the mineralisation extends to significant depths and offers the potential, with further drilling, to realise a considerable resource.

Technical Details of the Diamond Drill Program
The eight diamond holes drilled to date have been drilled at various orientations in order to best intersect the predicted mineralisation. The results presented here represent the second 471m of assays from this program which is planned to total 1,540m. Please see Figure 1 for the location of the completed and planned diamond holes drilled by PAW in 2011 overlying a geological map taken from mapping by Anglo American in the mid 1950's. Figures 2 and 3 shows the significant intersections of all the diamond hole assays received to date for Niobium and REO respectively.

Significant Niobium mineralisation was encountered by the Company in all diamond holes covered in the release, with the most significant assays from PAWDD005 and PAWDD008. These two drill holes were specifically targeting the known Niobium mineralised area in the north. Drill Hole PAWDD009 was targeting what is principally considered a REO mineralisation zone but also intersected significant Niobium mineralisation. For a record of all intersections from the diamond holes being reported please refer to Table 1.

The higher grade REO intersections coincide with the southern zone of mineralisation, as seen in drill hole PAWDD009. Significant TREO values are reported from all holes and this also included PAWDD005, PAWDD007 and PAWDD008 which were holes sited to drill the identified Niobium mineralisation. For a record of the TREO intersections reported please refer to Table 3.

For all diamond core assays received to date, Thorium levels encountered average 505 ppm in the Niobium intercepts and 510 ppm in the Rare Earths intercepts.

Closing Comments
PAW's President Mr. Darren Townsend commented "These second set of diamond results confirm the significant depth potential of the Mrima Hill deposit. As can be seen from the cross sections we have now shown the high grade Niobium mineralisation extends at depths substantially deeper than the initial Inferred Niobium resource which is limited to a depth of 30 metres. The drilling also indicates the Total Rare Earth Oxide mineralisation extends to significant depths, supporting the potential for a considerable Rare Earth Oxide resource target. Diamond drilling continues on site with a further 600m to be completed and dispatched for assay to complete this stage of exploration. Subject to regulatory approvals the Company plans to commence a Rare Earth Oxide Reverse Circulation drilling campaign this quarter with a view to estimating an initial Rare Earth Oxide Resource and updated Niobium resource in the second quarter of 2012"

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.255.004 von Schakal85 am 25.10.11 14:54:24Auf der Website von PAW ist die News jetzt auch verfügbar, mit detaillierten Skizzen:
http://www.pacificwildcat.com/_content/documents/419.pdf

Ich kann die Reaktion (bzw NICHTreaktion) des Marktes nicht verstehen. Wahrscheinlich ist REE derzeit wirklich wieder total out...



Auch wenn sie beim Bohren wieder die selben Probleme hatten, so sind die übriggebliebenen Ergebnisse beeindruckend. Alle DH haben gute bis sehr gute Mineralisierung getroffen - super.
100m@1,30% Niob! Wow...bei der bisherigen Resourchenschätzung ist man bisher von 30m ausgegangen und nun deutet sich eine mögliche Verdreifachung der Resource an! Dazu 52m@2,03% Niob, bedeutend höhere Grades als bisher und dazu nochmal über 30m Länge.

Auch auf der REE-Seite sieht es sehr gut aus. Rechnet man bei PAWD009 die gestückelten Ergebnisse um, haben wir hier 141m@3,34% TREO - mehr als ordentlich, wenn man bedenkt, dass man auch hier bisher nur 30m Intervalle kannte.

Und nicht zum Schluss steigt der HREO-Anteil von BE zu BE - 10,82%. Hier sind die richtig teueren REE enthalten, also ebenfalls eine gute Nachricht für das Projekt.

Ich erwarte eine Reaktion in den nächsten Tagen, wenn die News genauer betrachtet wurde. Richtung 0,90C$ sollte es eigentlich mal wieder gehen - und das mit bisschen mehr Umsatz als 4000 Stück...:rolleyes:

Ein DH ist pending und 600m werden noch gedrillt. Dazu soll ein direkt anschließendes Bohrprogramm starten. Also auf auf :)

Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. and Mrima Hill Trust Sign Two Month Extension to Memorandum of Understanding

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2011) - Pacific Wildcat Resources (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") reports that further to its News Release # 2011-18 and titled "PAW signs Conditional Memorandum of Understanding with Community Group", the Company and Cortec Mining Kenya ("CMK") has agreed to a two month extension of the Memorandum Of Understanding ("MOU") signed with the predecessor organization to the Mrima Hill Trust ("MHT"), the Kaya Mrima Self Help Group ("KMSHG"). As part of the formalization process of the community trust, application has been made to register the group corporately as the Mrima Hill Trust. Administrative delays in processing the application resulted in the necessity of extending the MOU until the MHT becomes formally registered and has the standing to enter into a final definitive agreement with the Company.

To view the images associated with this release, please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/paw126_img.pdf.

Mr. Townsend commented, "The relationship between the KMSHG and MHT and the Company and CMK is excellent and the eventual creation of a formal agreement between the parties once the MHT legalities are completed will be mutually beneficial. Community projects have been underway for over two months now with construction of schoolhouses in the villages of Bumbuni and Mwabovo nearly finished and the borehole drilled at Machanongo completed and providing a secure source of safe water for drinking. PAW and CMK remain committed to the welfare of the local community both in these early stages of development of Mrima Hill into an operating mine and with jobs and regional prosperity once this is later achieved."

About Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. - Pacific Wildcat is a Toronto Venture Exchange listed Canadian mineral exploration company having the trading symbol "PAW". It has a producing Tantalum mine at Muiane in northern Mozambique where it has the largest land position of over 450 square kilometers on the Alto Ligonha pegmatite belt, the location of numerous historic Tantalum mines.

PAW's flagship project is located in Kenya where a conditional contract is in place whereby the Company has the right to acquire an indirect 70% interest in the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth Project. This is an ex Anglo American and Pechiney property the subject of extensive historic work. In July 2011 the Company completed an initial NI 43-101 compliant inferred niobium resource estimate of 105.3 million tonnes at 0.65% Nb2O5 for a total of 1.519 billion pounds contained Nb2O5 to a depth of 30 metres from the surface In addition, substantial rare earths mineralization has been identified and work will commence shortly on a Rare Earth Resource RC drilling program.

Final Closing Date Set for Acquisition of 70% Indirect Interest in Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 14, 2011)
- Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") announces the execution of an Amendment Agreement (t
he "AmendmentAgreement") for the Acquisition (the "Acquisition") of the 70% indirect ownership of private Kenyan company Cortec Mining Kenya ("CMK"). As announced in a press release dated June 30th 2011 and titled "PAW Signs Extension Agreement for Mrima Hill" one of the condition precedents to the final closing of the Acquisition was to obtain an extension of not less than two years to the Special Prospecting Licence 256 over the Mrima Hill deposit, which has now been obtained. Accordingly, the Company and Finebrook Investments Pty Ltd, as trustee for the O'Sullivan Superannuation Fund ("O'Sullivan Fund"), Stirling Capital Limited ("Stirling"), Dunross Capital Ltd ("Dunross") and Cortec (Pty) Ltd. ("Cortec UK") (collectively the "Owners") have agreed to a Final Closing date of the Acquisition of the 23rd April, 2012. In addition the parties have also agreed to revise the schedule and timing of the payments to be made on the final closing of the Acquisition. The overall total consideration to be paid to the Owners by PAW has not changed.

The key terms of the Amendment Agreement, which are subject to acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange, are as follows:

PAW will make a cash payment of A$3,000,000 to the Owners on the earlier of: two business days after the completion by PAW of a financing to raise minimum gross proceeds of CDN $4,000,000 and January 31, 2012.

The issuance to the Owners on January 3, 2012 of such number of common shares of PAW which when aggregated with the shares already issued to the Owners in connection with the Acquisition, does not exceed 19.9% of the non-diluted number of the issued and outstanding PAW shares as at that date, provided such Closing Shares issued does not exceed the aggregate number of 24,702,353 shares to be issued to the Owners in connection with the Acquisition.

The final closing will take place on April 23, 2012.

Upon meeting all the remaining closing conditions, which the parties shall use their best endeavours to achieve, the parties have agreed to complete the Acquisition by the 23th April 2012 through the issue of the balance of the Closing Shares (if any) and the balance of cash due to the Owners on the final closing in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Acquisition Agreement.

At Final Closing, the Company will hold a 100% interest in Stirling and Cortec UK, who own an aggregate 70% interest in Cortec Kenya which holds the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth Project. The Owners shall then be entitled, at this time, to nominate a Director to the Board of Directors of the Company.

Closing Comments

PAW's President Mr. Darren Townsend commented "The signing of the Amendment Agreement gives certainty to the Final Closing date for the Acquisition of the 70% indirect interest in the Mrima Hill Project. The Company has received strong levels of potential interest for funding the closing of the Acquisition and is working with its corporate advisors to progress these discussions".

PAW to Commence RC Drilling for Maiden Rare Earth Resource Estimate at Mrima Hill

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 16, 2011) - Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that a Reverse Circulation drill program is planned to commence in January 2012 at the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth project in Kenya. PAW has the contractual right to purchase an indirect 70% interest in the project. An appropriate rig has been identified and a contract entered into with R and L Exploration Limited.

The objective of the program is to identify a maiden Inferred Rare Earth Resource estimate of between 10 and 20 million tonnes at grades ranging from 3.0 to 5.0% Total Rare Earth Oxides ("TREO") by the end of the second quarter of 2012.

Approximately 5,000 meters of RC drilling is planned to an average vertical depth of 100m.

Please refer to Figure 1 showing the location of planned RC drilling.

Figure 2 outlines the significant Rare Earth drill results returned from drilling carried out by PAW over the last two drill campaigns, namely 975m of RC drilling in late 2010 and 1,810m of diamond drilling in 2011.

Closing Comments

PAW's President Mr. Darren Townsend commented "The establishment of a maiden Rare Earth Resource for PAW will put the Mrima Hill deposit into context for investors. We are very confident of establishing a significant Rare Earth Resource Estimate and I invite interested parties to review slides 32 and 33 of our recent Company Presentation, as available on the company website, which puts the potential significance of the Mrima Hill asset into context. We look forward to concluding the Acquisition of the indirect 70% interest in the Mrima Hill Project."

Rohstoffe: China will Ausfuhr von Seltenen Erden einschränken

China hat eine Kürzung seiner Exportquote für Seltene Erden angekündigt. Das Land will damit dem Preisverfall für die exotischen Metalle begegnen, die in Mobiltelefonen und anderen High-Tech-Geräten verarbeitet werden. Im ersten Halbjahr 2012 dürften 10.546 Tonnen Seltene Erden ausgeführt werden, teilte das Handelsministerium in Peking am Dienstag mit. Das entspricht einer Kürzung um 27 Prozent gegenüber dem Vorjahreszeitraum.

Die Volksrepublik ist für 97 Prozent der weltweiten Fördermenge Seltener Erden verantwortlich. Bereits 2009 hatte Peking die Exporte gekürzt, dies sorgte bei ausländischen Technologiefirmen für Alarmstimmung. Die EU, USA, Japan sowie die Regierungen anderer Länder haben Peking aufgefordert, seine Exportbeschränkungen aufzuheben.

Trotz vorheriger Produktions- und Exportbeschränkungen sind die Preise für Seltene Erden in China zurückgegangen. Grund dafür sind die wirtschaftlichen Sorgen der USA und europäischer Länder, die sich auf die Nachfrage nach den Metallen aus China auswirken. Um die Preise anzukurbeln hatte die chinesische Regierung den wichtigsten Produzenten Seltener Erden im Land angeordnet, die Produktion für einen Monat auszusetzen.

Wegen der Restriktionen sind Seltene Erden im Ausland wesentlich teurer geworden. Dadurch haben chinesische Hersteller von Produkten mit den exotischen Metallen einen Preisvorteil und ausländische Produzenten einen Anreiz, ihren Betrieb nach China zu verlagern.

Das chinesische Handelsministerium gab am Dienstag auch bekannt, dass nur elf Unternehmen Seltene Erden im Ausland verkaufen dürften. Für das erste Halbjahr 2011 hatten noch 26 Firmen eine Lizenz dafür erteilt bekommen.

Die Seltene Erden umfassen 17 Elemente, darunter Cer, Dysprosium und Lanthan, die bei der Herstellung von Flachbildfernsehern, Batterien für Elektroautos und Windturbinen zum Einsatz kommen. Sie werden auch für die Produktion einiger Hightech-Waffen genutzt.

Neben China verfügen auch die USA, Kanada und Australien über Seltene Erden. Allerdings stellten die Länder den Abbau in den 1990er Jahren ein, als billigere chinesische Erze den Markt überfluteten. Wegen der steigenden Nachfrage haben Unternehmen in Kanada, USA, Indien, Malaysia, Russland und anderen Ländern inzwischen Minen für Seltene Erden entwickelt. In einigen davon wird die Produktion voraussichtlich bis 2015 beginnen

Wildcat Exploration Reports Drilling Assay Results from Burntwood Project in Thompson Nickel Belt, Manitoba
January 5, 2012 - 11:59:46 AM WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Jan. 5, 2012) - Wildcat Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WEL) is pleased to report that assay results from drilling on its Burntwood property in the Thompson Nickel Belt (TNB) confirmed the presence of nickel mineralization as well as an unexpected gold-bearing quartz vein in the targeted rocks.

The previously announced drill program (see News Release December 14, 2011) was primarily designed to intersect nickel-copper mineralization in the TNB. However, Wildcat geologists also analyzed for gold and platinum group elements (PGE) and this work was successful in identifying gold mineralization in drill hole TB-2011-02.

Drill hole TB-2011-02 intersected one metre (core length) of gold mineralization grading 152.5 g/t gold from 125.9 m to 126.9 m (non 43-101 compliant). This result was confirmed with a re-assay which graded 145.5 g/t gold and was further supported by the observation of native gold within a smoky-grey quartz vein and along the enveloping wall rock. The quartz vein is hosted within a well-foliated garnet-biotite-quartz metasedimentary rock. Wildcat has completed preliminary follow-up sampling in core bordering the gold intersection. The drill has been left on site, and Wildcat plans to follow-up the gold mineralization with additional drilling.

Other assay results confirm the presence of nickel mineralization within the Ospwagan rocks of the TNB. The best intersection occurred in drill hole TB-2011-01, which included 0.28% Ni from 169.6 m to 180.6 m (11 m core width). This mineralization is associated with disseminated sulphides (mainly pyrrhotite) hosted within Ospwagan perridotite. The company is considering down-hole electromagnetic surveys to check for nearby anomalies.

Tom Lewis, VP of Exploration commented, "Intersecting gold within the TNB was rather unexpected, although we had sampled for gold and PGE in the remote possibility that such mineralization might be present. We will continue to focus on the nickel and copper potential of the Burntwood property and, in addition, we plan to follow up on this new gold intersection with further drilling."

Wildcat's exploration program is managed by Tom Lewis, P.Eng., a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101, who has reviewed all technical information in this release.

Tantalum Market Trends and 2012 Market Outlook

05.01.12

Going into 2011, it appeared the tantalum market, recovering from a downturn following the recession of 2008, was in high gear to rebound. In 2010, prices had steadily escalated, starting in the $34-36/lb range and ending in the $110-125 range. Moving into 2011 at that rate, it was predicted that shuttered mines may be encouraged to re-open and that prices may continue their ascent toward $150. Those predictions were indeed realized, but the year ended and 2012 has begun on a different note.

In 2010, Daniel Persico, Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Development for Kemet (NYSE:KEM), said suppliers hadn’t expected the tantalum capacitor business to reach 2008 levels until 2011 or 2012. However, business had already bounced back to those levels resulting in a strain on supply, he added.

Tantalum demand was strong going into 2011, especially from the electronics industry, which is the largest user of the metal. Capacitor powder, an essential component in small gadget electronics, accounted for 40 percent of the final market, according to Noventa (TSX:NTA,AIM:NVTA).

Given the trend towards smaller, more capable devices and expectations of growing demand for these products, tantalum’s outlook in this sector was especially positive at the beginning of last year. There were even concerns about a supply deficit.

As the tantalum mining community is small, it was taken as a positive indicator that two producers announced that they would re-open their mines. Global Advanced Metals (GAM) re-started production at Wodgina in Australia. And, Cabot Corp. (NYSE:CBT) announced it would resume production at its TANCO mine in Canada to meet rising global demand.

Later in the year, came the announcement that GAM was set to purchase Cabot’s Supermetals business, which is a leader in high-capacitance powder technology, putting GAM in a good position to capitalize on the electronics miniaturization trend and to create a conflict-free supply chain.

Strong demand was complemented by the Conflict Minerals Act. This US legislation aims to curb the flow of cash to rebel groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), resulting in a nearly self-imposed embargo on tantalum supplies from the region. Companies became highly concerned with soiled reputations and being a conflict-free tantalum producer became a strong marketing point.

Putting small scale miners out of work was an effect but not the true intention of the legislation. But, given that a supply shortage already seemed imminent, it helped to provide support for high prices, which reportedly increased 150 percent from 2010 to 2011. By mid-year, the metal was selling at a high of about $140/lb.

Spot prices and trade are only partially representative of the condition of the tantalum market because a bulk of the transactions in this industry are subject to off-take agreements. Even in this regard, the tantalum market appeared positive. Noventa, for example, announced that H. C. Starck, one of the largest tantalum consumers, had agreed to a 27-36 percent price increase through 2013.

There were assumptions that high prices would be the norm going forward. However, plans were underway to develop methods to bring conflict-free tantalum to market from the DRC. Though there were skeptics who claimed that these measures wouldn’t be successful, Perisco appeared to be an optimist.

He said prices would remain high until the issues around Congo were sorted out. Once those materials started flowing again he predicted prices should ease.

During the fourth quarter last year, the tantalum market did seem to cool off. By year end, tantalum prices were down to a low of $95, though the average selling range was reported at $105-110 coming into the new year.

Since the dawn of 2011 tides have changed and 2012 tantalum prices are reportedly under pressure. It is not uncommon for tantalum consumers to maintain stockpiles and it is believed that they may be in a comfortable position now to negotiate and delay purchases.

There are reports that supplies are again flowing from Central Africa. And last month, AVX announced that it can now guarantee conflict-free tantalum from DRC.

Floods in Thailand have at least temporarily washed away some demand from the nation’s tantalum capacitor manufacturing sector. And also of note for tantalum investors is the reported slowdowns in areas such as the EU and China, topped by weaker than expected electronics demand.

Statements made at the International Tin and Tantalum Conference in November did little to paint this market weakness as temporary or to garner excitement about the 2012 tantalum outlook.

AVX Divisional Director of Quality and Technology, Bill Millman said, consumption of tantalum wire and powder will be down.

David Henderson of Rittenhouse International Resources described tantalum as a “low or no growth market.” And added that in 2012, he foresees prices below $100/lb and a 650,000 lb surplus.

Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp.: Results Confirm Regional Potential of the Mrima Hill Carbonatite Complex
February 28, 2012 - 01:05:33 PM VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2012) - Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Mrima Hill niobium and rare earth oxide rich carbonatite along with other surrounding alkaline intrusions, principally at Kiruku Hill and Jombo Hill, are components of a single very large (17 km x 9 km) alkaline igneous complex - the Dzombo Intrusive Complex.

This conclusion is a result of a recently completed report prepared for PAW by a renowned rare earths consultant, Professor Ken Collerson. Professor Collerson based this major reinterpretation on reconnaissance magnetic and gravity data, coupled with a geochemically coherent model to explain the diverse geology of the area. This has shown that a large alkaline ultramafic intrusion links Mrima Hill with the surrounding outcropping alkaline rocks at Jombo Hill, Nguluku Hill, Kiruku Hill and Dzirihini ("Figure 1"). The discovery has substantially increased the area of prospectivity around Mrima Hill to more than 110 km2.

The Dzombo Intrusive Complex appears to be similar in size, geological complexity and prospectivity to the economically important rare metal rich intrusions on the Kola Peninsula in Russia and Finland. This discovery is a significant advance in understanding the geology and hence mineral potential of the Mrima Hill area.

In addition to the current resource drilling program at Mrima Hill, PAW and Cortec Mining Kenya ("CMK") intend to undertake an exploration program within the Dzombo Intrusive Complex to identify other areas of specialty metals, rare earth oxides, platinum group elements ("PGE"), gold, scandium, gallium and copper mineralization. PAW has a conditional purchase agreement to acquire an indirect 70% interest in CMK, owner of the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth project.

Further Key Points



-- Significant Total Rare Earth Oxide ("TREO") rock chip results of 1.33%
and 0.71% at Kiruku Hill collected over 3km from Mrima Hill ("Figure 2")
support the interpretation of the Dzombo Intrusive Complex.

-- Total count radiometric survey shows an anomaly at the northwest corner
of Mrima Hill, which has the potential for TREO mineralization. Further
anomalies correlate to the surrounding hills and show the potential for
TREO in the alluvial plain from transported eroded material ("Figure
1").

-- TREO are present at Jombo Hill and Nguluku Hill with a higher HREO and
Yttrium to LREO ratio than at PAW's drill programs at Mrima Hill.

-- Anomalous TiO2rock chip result at Jombo Hill of 3.77% and Nguluku Hill
of 2.47%.

-- TREO rock chip results of 0.17% at Nguluku over 6km from Mrima Hill.



Rock chip sampling was focused on the TREO potential from both fenitised (hydrothermal alteration to surrounding rock) and intrusive alkaline igneous rocks. PAW collected thirty-four rock chips across Jombo Hill (17), Kiruku Hill (8), Nguluku Hill (6) and the base of Mrima Hill (3) at an old quarry outside of the known mineralization zone. Twenty of these samples have been received and are listed in Appendix 1. The remaining 14 results are yet to be verified and will be released when available. The samples are indicative of the source and presence of TREO, and provide strong follow up targets for further exploration.

All sample preparation was undertaken by the Nagrom assay labs in Perth. Prepared samples were dispatched to both the Ultratrace (Nb2O5 analysis by XRF) and Genalysis (for rare earth and matrix analysis by ICP-MS) assay labs in Perth, Western Australia. Please refer to the table in Appendix 1 for a summary of results.

Potential of Kiruku Hill

In 1993, the Metal Mining Agency of Japan ("MMAJ") collected seven samples from the northeast ridge at Kiruku Hill. Although they did not assay for the full range of TREO elements and neglected to report grid co-ordinates these results are significant in identifying a mineralized area (Appendix 2). Samples collected by PAW have substantiated the anomaly identified by MMAJ. From a limited sample population PAW, has found Kiruku Hill to be favorably elevated in Heavy Rare Earth Oxides and Yttrium ("HREO") with a high ratio of 14.3% in proportion to Light Rare Earth Oxides ("LREO"). In comparison, drilling assays reported to date from Mrima Hill have a HREO and Yttrium to LREO ratio of 9.3% (Table 3). PAW drill results can be referred to in news releases NR #2011-06, NR #2011-08, NR #2011-11, NR #2011-21, NR #2011-22, and NR #2012-03.

MMAJ reported that mineralization at Kiruku Hill originated from hydrothermal activity along NW-SE regional faults and that the hill is the result of a small plug of brecciated highly baked potassium rich fenities. PAW has commissioned a recent internal review (2012) of this and other datasets by Professor Collerson who also visited the site in November 2011. His findings indicate that these fenites formed due to fluids from the alkaline intrusive complex that lies beneath the hill and "has significant exploration potential for TREO and Nb2O5". The Dindi and Swain 1988 historic aeromagnetic gravity survey ("Figure 1"), supports Professor Collerson's interpretation that outcropping alkaline intrusions are part of a single very large (greater than 110 km2) alkaline ultramafic intrusion at depth.

The total count contoured radiometric data sourced from Terra Surveys Ltd of Canada ("TSL") 1977, which is on a more detailed scale, confirms an anomaly at Kiruku Hill supporting the theory of an alkaline intrusion beneath it (see Figure 2).

Potential of Jombo Hill and Nguluku Hill

Work undertaken by Professor Collerson (2012) has identified Jombo Hill as having the potential for PGE associated with pyroxenites and ultramafics, as well as gold in ijolites and nepheline syenites. He has mentioned the strong possibility of Phoscorites at Jombo Hill, which have a high potential for PGE's and scandium. Jombo Hill is part of the same large intrusion that produced Mrima Hill ("Figure 1 and 3") and it lacks the laterite seen at Mrima Hill. Faulting after the major weathering event that produced the laterite blanket at Mrima Hill has exposed the exposed fresh rocks.

Professor Collerson's report has also indicated the prospectivity for copper and gallium within the region. Although no anomalies have yet identified, copper sulphide mineralization was noted by Professor Collerson in diamond drill core in fresh carbonatite at Mrima Hill.

Nguluku is a small hill composed of an agglomerate, which has the strong potential for an underlying alkaline intrusion based on xenolith (exotic rock fragment) composition and total count radiometric data sourced from TSL in 1977 (see Figure 2).

TREO's are present at Jombo Hill and Nguluku Hill with a higher HREO and Yttrium to LREO ratio (Table 3) than at Mrima Hill with HREO ratio of 9.3% based on drilling results. This is geochemically consistent with the common association of HREO's in nepheline syenites (Jombo) cf. carbonatites (Mrima). These results show the presence of TREO, the highest TREO value (0.17%) achieved at Nguluku Hill (NR006) TREO over 6km from Mrima Hill. Soils and saprolitic clays in the region therefore will form a potential exploration target.

Titanium results (JR016, 3.77% TiO2) are also anomalous around Jombo Hill and Nguluku Hill (NR006, 2.47% TiO2) indicating the likely presence of pyrochlore in the intrusion.

Mrima Quarry

Three rock chips have been taken from an old quarry on the slopes of Mrima Hill, historically used for road base and outside of the zone of known mineralisation. These samples are composed of alkaline lava flows (phonolites) and ash deposits (tuff) along the lower edge of Mrima Hill, indicating that these unweathered rocks must have been exposed by post-laterite faulting.

As expected, the results show that TREO were present at this outcrop, though not highly elevated being outside the enriched saprolite and carbonatite zones ("Appendix 1").

A New Exploration Initiative

Following these positive results, PAW plans to undertake the following exploration program to better delineate mineralized areas and the intrusive complex that formed these hills in tenement SPL256.



-- Detailed airborne regional aerial radiometric and magnetic surveys to
define the underlying alkaline and ultramafic igneous complex
surrounding Mrima Hill and the other surrounding hills. This will also
aim to identify new mineralized alkaline intrusive targets, which are
now buried and relate to the ultramafic intrusion at depth and fenitised
zones that are undercover.

-- Soil sampling, trenching, auger and or aircore drill programs to further
identify and define buried targets and any potential ionic clay
mineralization. Based on the results from these geochemical sampling
programs an exploratory reverse circulation drilling program is then
planned to be undertaken.

-- PGE potential will be further investigated surrounding Jombo Hill where
phoscorites might be present.

-- Rock chip and soil sampling, as well as mapping to better define the
genesis of the intrusions and provide further anomalies for drill
testing.



Closing Comments

PAW's President and CEO Mr. Darren Townsend commented, "These results demonstrate the regional potential of the large intrusive complex beneath Mrima Hill. The exploration work undertaken by our geologists and Professor Ken Collerson identifies this potential and provides many new exploration targets. It is the intention of PAW and CMK to actively explore these anomalies to gain a better understanding of the potential mineralization as an addition to the company's successful work at Mrima Hill."

Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp.: Update on Progress at Mrima Hill and Increased Rare Earth Resource Target

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 13, 2012) -

Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") is pleased to report that good progress is being achieved with the reverse circulation ("RC") resource drill program currently underway at the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth Project in Kenya. Originally planned for 5,000m (NR #2011-27), the RC program has now been doubled to 10,000m as further drill access tracks (Figure 1) have been authorized by regulatory authorities and early drilling has demonstrated increased depth potential of the mineralized saprolitic clays and saprolitic rock. PAW has a conditional purchase agreement to acquire an indirect 70% interest in Cortec Mining Kenya ("CMK"), owner of the Mrima Hill project.

Highlights

PAW has doubled the planned amount of RC drilling to be undertaken at Mrima Hill to 10,000m

1km of additional drill access tracks approved and cleared at Mrima Hill over a high grade Total Rare Earth Oxide ("TREO") region.

RC resource drilling underway with good recoveries and intersecting prospective saprolite below 100m drill depth.

Recent TREO diamond drilling results (NR #2012-03) together with previous TREO results have supported an upward revision of the initial Exploration Target* for the TREO mineralisation of between 30 million to 40 million tonnes at grades ranging from 4.0% to 5.0% TREO.

Community projects progressing well with the provision of school buildings and waterbores.

To view Photo 1, please click the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/pacificphoto1.pdf

*Note that the potential quantities and grades of the above TREO estimates are conceptual in nature, and there is insufficient exploration to date to define a current mineral resource and therefore it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a current mineral resource. A "qualified person" as defined under National Instrument 43-101 has not completed sufficient work to classify the above mentioned historical estimate as a current mineral resource. For details of individual Rare Earth Oxides that contribute to the TREO Exploration Target see Table 1.

A track mounted rig (Photo 2) is now in full production having completed 16 holes totaling 1,658m of RC drilling (Figure 2 and 3). Most drilled holes have achieved their planned average depth of 100m, and often been extended up to a depth of 120m (Photo 1). Sample recovery and metre production rates have improved in comparison to the 2010 RC program. An average production day drill rate of 64m per shift has been achieved project to date.

The initial drilling has commenced in the south west corner of Mrima Hill. This is one of the areas found to be anomalous for TREO by the Kenyan Mines Department who sampled 81 pits to a depth of 8m throughout Mrima Hill in 1955, an anomaly that was confirmed by the PAW diamond drill program of 2011 (see News Releases - NR #2011-21, NR #2011-22, NR #2012-03). The saprolite is prospective for TREO and niobium and has formed as a product of a weathered carbonatite intrusion. The RC holes are at 100m spacing and aim to achieve a maiden National Instrument 43-101 resource for TREO, as well as an update on the Initial Niobium Resource reported on the 7th of July 2011 ("NR #2011-14"); at Mrima Hill. These resource estimates are expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2012.

The revised initial Exploration Target* for the deposit of between 30 million to 40 million tonnes at grades ranging from 4.0% to 5.0% TREO has been developed taking into account all available assay data from the completed RC and diamond drilling programs at Mrima. This estimate is based on the development of a conceptual interpretation of the available drilling data utilising a 1.0% TREO lower cut-off. This interpretation was subsequently constrained to the surveyed topographic surface and limited to a maximum depth of 80 metres below surface. TREO mineralisation however has been intersected at depths greater than 80 metres, implying a level of conservatism in the conceptual target. Further planned drilling will increase confidence and allow a deeper base to the Exploration Target.

Pacific Wildcat Announces: High Grade Results Confirm Rare Earth Anomaly at Kiruku Hill
March 20, 2012 - 08:00:00 AM VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 20, 2012) - Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further high grade Total Rare Earth Oxide ("TREO") rock chip assay results have been attained from Kiruku Hill, three kilometers north east of the Mrima Hill Niobium and Rare Earth Project.

Highlights



-- Significant Total Rare Earth Oxide and Yttrium ("TREO") rock chip
results of 4.45%, 3.00% and 2.53% at Kiruku Hill collected over 3km from
Mrima Hill ("Figure 1").

-- Anomalous TiO2rock chip results of 3.97%, 3.69%, 3.04%, 2.44% and 2.24%
at Jombo Hill.

-- Strong correlation with the location of the new rock chip results and
the Regional Total Count Radiometric data (Figure 1) supporting
Professor Ken Collerson's interpretation of a large intrusive complex.



To view Figure 1, please visit: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/paw320_F1.pdf.

A total of thirty-four rock chips were collected from surface expressions of the Dzombo Intrusive Complex, focusing on TREO from both fenitised (hydrothermal alteration to surrounding rock) and intrusive igneous rock. Results from twenty of these samples were previously released on the 28th of February (News Release ("NR") #2012-04), the remaining fourteen samples from Jombo Hill (9) and Kiruku Hill (5) are shown in Appendix 1. The samples are indicative of the source and presence of TREO and provide a strong target for drilling.

To view Appendix 1, please visit: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/paw320_App1.pdf.

All sample preparation was undertaken by the Nagrom assay labs in Perth. Prepared samples were dispatched to both the Ultratrace (Nb2O5 analysis by XRF) and Genalysis (for rare earth and matrix analysis by ICP-MS) assay labs in Perth, Western Australia. Please refer to the table in Appendix 1 for a summary of new assay results.

The results at Kiruku Hill further support the historic samples collected by the Metal Mining Agency of Japan ("MMJA") who first identified the anomaly in 1993 (NR #2012-04). From a limited sample population PAW previously announced that Kiruku Hill was favorably elevated in Heavy Rare Earth Oxides and Yttrium ("HREO") with a ratio of 14.3% in proportion to Light Rare Earth Oxides ("LREO") (NR #2012-04). Undertaking a weighted average of the new results with those from announcement NR #2012-04 it is apparent that the HREO to LREO ratio of these combined rock chip results at Kiruku Hill (9.17%) (Table 3) is very similar to those from the drill results at the Mrima Hill project (9.30%) (Table 3). Samples taken at Kiruku Hill were from a 400m traverse along a ridge.

Titanium results (JR001, 3.97% TiO2, JR004, 3.69% TiO2, JR002, 2.44% TiO2 and JR003, 2.24% TiO2 (Table 1)) are also anomalous around Jombo Hill and as previously announced Nguluku Hill (NR #2012-04) indicating the likely presence of pyrochlore in the intrusion.

Closing Comments

PAW's President and CEO, Mr. Darren Townsend, commented, "I am very pleased that these results have further confirmed the prospectivity of Kiruku Hill for Rare Earth Mineralisation. These results have further strengthened Professor Ken Collerson's interpretation of the 110km2 Dzombo Intrusive Complex within Special Prospecting License 256. Planning is underway to undertake initial exploratory drilling at Kiruku Hill this year."

Investment recommendation:

Pacific Wildcat’s flagship project is the Mrima Hill Niobium-Rare Earth Project in southern Kenya, in which it can earn a 70% interest. The maiden NI 43-101 compliant niobium resource of 105.3 million tonnes at a grade of 0.65% from surface already ranks Mrima Hill as a global top-5 deposit by size. The recently discovered Dzombo Intrusive Complex encompasses a prospective area around Mrima Hill of more than 110 km².

Pacific Wildcat’s two strategic targets are to develop a top-5 global niobium resource with a 20+ year niobium mine life and an emerging world-class Rare Earth resource with a maiden NI 43-101 compliant REO resource scheduled for the third quarter of 2012, and an initial resource target of 30-40 million tonnes grading 4% to 5% TREO. Pacific Wildcat also has a 100% interest in the producing Mulane Tantalum Mine in Mozambique.
Based on Mrima Hill being developed as a global top-5 niobium deposit by size, the excellent infrastructure and in addition having the potential of a large TREO deposit, at a current market capitalization of Cdn$ 61 million, we view the shares of Pacific Wildcat to be strongly undervalued.

Our first price objective is Cdn$ 0.80.

PAW Announces Brokered Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 9, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PAW) ("PAW" or the "Company") wishes to announce the signing of a letter of engagement (the "LOE") with GMP Securities L.P. ("GMP") to raise up to $25 million through a brokered private placement (the "Offering").

The Offering will be undertaken by a syndicate of agents (the "Agents") lead by GMP, with Byron Capital Markets Ltd. ("Byron") and GMP acting as co-book runners.

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to complete the acquisition of a 70% indirect interest in the Mrima Hill niobium and rare earth project in Kenya (the "Acquisition"), for ongoing exploration and resource definition work and for general corporate purposes.

The material terms of the LOE are as follows:

A "best efforts" private placement of subscription receipts (each, a "Subscription Receipt") at an issue price of $0.30 per Subscription Receipt to raise gross proceeds of up to $25 million.

The Subscription Receipts will be automatically exchanged, without payment of any additional consideration, for an equal number of units (each a "Unit") upon the completion of certain conditions, including the entering into of a definitive agreement for the Acquisition, the receipt of all necessary shareholder approvals and the acceptance of the Offering by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.40 per common share at any time within 36 months following the closing of the Offering (the "Closing"). If on any 30 consecutive trading days occurring after four months and one day has elapsed following the Closing, the closing price of PAW's common shares (or the closing bid, if no sales were reported on a trading day) on the TSXV is greater than $0.60 per common share, PAW may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the 30th day after the date on which PAW gives notice of such acceleration to the holders of the Warrants in accordance with the terms of the Warrants.

The Company will grant the Agents the option, exercisable up to 48 hours prior to the Closing, to arrange for the purchase of up to an additional 15% of the number of Subscription Receipts sold under the Offering for additional gross proceeds to the Company of up to $3,750,000.

In accordance with Canadian securities legislation and the policies of the TSXV, the securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a restricted hold period of four months from the Closing.

PAW President and CEO, Darren Townsend, said "We are extremely pleased to have GMP and Byron leading this financing. This financing will give the Company the funds to complete the acquisition of a 70% indirect interest in the Mrima Hill property and to allow sufficient working capital for an important resource drilling campaign. RC resource drilling continues on site with over 3,000 metres of drilling of the current program completed to date with first samples currently at the laboratory in Australia. It is the aim of the Company to release its maiden rare earth oxide resource in the 3rd quarter of 2012 with an initial exploration target* for the deposit of between 30 million to 40 million tonnes at grades ranging from 4.0% to 5.0% TREO."

Hallo Pirat,

Noch nicht, aber werde hier künftig vermutlich auch einsteigen(jedenfalls in der engeren Auswahl der "möglichen nächsten", Käufe). Das Deposit grundsätzlich ist IMO ein Knaller. In dem Zusammenhang müssts interessant sein sich mal Base Resources Limited anzuschauen -mit was für "Thematiken"/eventl. Problemen(?) die so zu tun haben.

Wobei unbedingt anzumerken ist, dass es in der jüngeren Vergangenheit schon einiges an größeren Niob(Neu)entdeckungen gab(QRE.V, IMG.TO, MBC.TO, GBE.AX und glaub noch 1, 2, 3 andere -sowie paar bei Denen das Deposit an sich/"Explorationspotenzial" schon länger bekannt ist, oder auch als "untergeordnetes Beiprodukt") -das sollte man IMO auf der ("potenziell künftigen") Angebotsseite nicht unterschätzen(da hier ja, v.a. in den Hochglanz Präsentationen :D , oft sehr die ("Extrem-")Monopolstellung "gespielt" wird).
