Pinnacle Minerals Ltd (ASX: PIM) – Capel Mineral Sands Drilling Program Approved and Scheduled

Pinnacle Minerals Ltd (ASX: PIM) 2 mins read

Pinnacle Minerals Ltd (ASX: PIM), an ASX listed technology minerals company, is excited to announce the approval and scheduling of a significant drilling program at the Capel Mineral Sands Project in Western Australia. The program, consisting of ninety-three (93) aircore drilling holes covering approximately 2,000 meters, is set to commence on May 20, 2024.

The Capel project, a brownfield heavy mineral (HM) exploration site, has demonstrated promising shallow mineralisation in prior drilling efforts by Iluka Resources. Notable findings include a mineralisation of 21 meters at 3.3% HM from the surface, including 9 meters at 6.1% HM from 11 meters depth. This project is strategically located within a region noted for its substantial mineral sands deposits and production facilities.

This drilling initiative aims to define an ilmenite dominated heavy mineral resource, complemented by accessory zircon and rutile. A concept study will follow the drilling results to outline potential development pathways, aligning with the market's growing demand for titanium dioxide (TiO2), as highlighted by industry forecasts.

Pinnacle Minerals Managing Director, Nic Matich, commented:

“The Capel Mineral Sands Project presents an exciting and low capital intensity brownfield exploration asset. Capel provides shareholders with exposure to a project in the critical minerals space which upon exploration success could have a JORC Mineral Resource Estimate defined in 2024.”

BHP suffers another defeat as OS Agreement rejected again

The Fair Work Commission has rejected another application by BHP for approval of an Enterprise Agreement to cover its production workforce. The Mining and Energy Union said the FWC decision, which found that the proposed Enterprise Agreement was not valid because it had not been explained properly to workers, was the latest in a string of legal defeats for BHP’s in-house labour hire operation. MEU Queensland President Mitch Hughes said the decision delivered late Tuesday was a further indication that BHP’s approach in setting up a subsidiary to provide itself with a cheaper workforce was flawed. “This decision further exposes…
