Mining 101: Ep 15. What is throughput?

Sign up for our FREE newsletter here:

Don Robinson, President & CEO of Eastmain Resources explains what throughput is.

From Wiki: Throughput can be best described as the rate at which a system generates its products / services per unit of time. Often this is monetary revenue and is in contrast to output, which is inventory that may be sold or stored in a warehouse. In this case throughput is measured by revenue received (or not) at the point of sale—exactly the right time. Output that becomes part of the inventory in a warehouse may mislead investors or others about the organizations condition by inflating the apparent value of its assets. The Theory of Constraints and throughput accounting explicitly avoid that trap.

Mining 101: Ep 14. What are CRDs?

 Sign up for our FREE newsletter here:

Lenic Rodriguez, President and CEO of Aurcana Corp explains what CRDs are.

From infomine: Carbonate Replacement Deposits are Phanerozoic, high-temperature (more than 250 C) deposits, consisting of stratigraphically discordant Pb-Zn-Ag-Cu skarn and massive sulfide bodies associated with intrusive stocks and hosted by carbonate rocks.

Other characteristics:
In average contain about 10-15 M tones of ore, but could go up to 50 Mt;
High-grade polymetallic ores: 60-600 g/t Ag, 2-12% Pb, 2-18% Zn, trace to 2% Cu and trace to 6 g/t Au;
Types: Pb-Zn-Ag (+/- Mn); Cu-Zn (+/- Ag, Au, W); Cu-Au (+/- Ag);
The carbonate rock contact with sulfide or skarn is razor sharp;
Gangue is different for: skarn (garnets, pyroxenes, amphiboles, wollastonite, rhodonite, magnetite, serpentine); and non-skarn (calcite, fluorite, quartz, dolomite, baritone, gypsum, rhodocrosite, ankerite) deposits;
Are amenable to low-cost mining methods and have a minimum environmental footprint (limestone is an ARD inhibitor).

Mining 101: Ep 12. How Do You Find a Vein?

Chairman of Exeter Resource Corp. Yale Simpson explains how you find a vein that is worth mining.

From wiki:
The difference between 19th century and modern mining techniques and the type of ore sought is based on the grade of material being mined and the methods of mining which are used. Historically, hand-mining of gold ores permitted the miners to pick out the lode quartz or reef quartz, allowing the highest-grade portions of the lodes to be worked, without dilution from the unmineralised wall rocks.

Modern mining using larger machinery and equipment forces the miners to take low-grade waste rock in with the ore material, resulting in dilution of the grade.

However, modern mining and assaying allows the delineation of lower-grade bulk tonnage mineralisation, within which the gold is invisible to the naked eye. In these cases, veining is the subordinate host to mineralisation and may only be an indicator of the presence of metasomatism of the wall-rocks which contains the low-grade mineralisation.

For this reason, veins within hydrothermal gold deposits are no longer the exclusive target of mining, and in some cases gold mineralization is restricted entirely to the altered wall rocks within which entirely barren quartz veins are hosted.

Industry Watch- GATA talks Gold market manipulation and calls for transparency at the Fed

June 6, 2011: Al talks with Bill Murphy, Ed Steer, and Chris Powell of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) about how they uncovered manipulation in the gold markets, secret gold-swap agreements in the Fed, and how the price of gold is being held down still today.

Stay up to date by signing up for our FREE newsletter here:

The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee was organized in January 1999 to advocate and undertake litigation against illegal collusion to control the price and supply of gold and related financial securities. The committee arose from essays by Bill Murphy, a financial commentator, and by Chris Powell, a newspaper editor in Connecticut, published at Murphy's Internet site,

Murphy's essays reported evidence of collusion among financial institutions to suppress the price of gold. Powell, whose newspaper had been involved in antitrust litigation, replied with an essay proposing that gold mining and investor interests should act on Murphy's essays by bringing suit against the financial institutions involved in the collusion against gold.

The response to these essays was so favorable that the committee was formed and formally incorporated in Delaware. Murphy became chairman and Powell secretary/treasurer.

GATA underwrote the federal anti-trust lawsuit of its consultant, Reginald H. Howe -- Howe vs. Bank for International Settlements et al. -- which was pursued in U.S. District Court in Boston from 2000 to 2002. While the Howe suit was dismissed on a jurisdictional technicality, it became the model for Blanchard Coin and Bullion's anti-trust lawsuit against Barrick Gold and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., which was filed in U.S. District Court in New Orleans in 2002 and prompted Barrick Gold's decision to stop selling gold in advance for 10 years.

Exeter Completes Positive Pre-Feasibility Study

Yale Simpson, the Chairman of Exeter Resource Corporation gives viewers an overview of the Company's latest press release. The press release dated June 6, 2011 outlined the economic parameters for developing the Oxide part of the project. Mr. Simpson is very excited as the results from this PFS indicate that the Caspiche Oxide Project is a project that will be profitable and something Exeter has the capability to develop on its own!

Exeter Resource Corporation is a Canadian public company listed on the TSX and NYSE Amex exchanges. Our focus is the discovery, evaluation and development of gold deposits in the Maricunga district in Chile.

In September, 2010 the Company announced an updated NI43-101 compliant resource* on its giant gold-copper Caspiche porphyry project in the Maricunga district in northern Chile, which showed:

MEASURED AND INDICATED RESOURCES: 21.3 m. ounces of gold, 5.3 billion pounds of copper and 48.4 m. ounces of silver+
INFERRED RESOURCES: 5.1 m. ounces of gold, 1.4 billion pounds of copper and 14.5 m. ounces of silver

The new gold equivalent endowment of Caspiche using only gold and copper now stands at:
INDICATED RESOURCES: 35.9 million gold equivalent ounces +
INFERRED RESOURCES*: 9.1 million gold equivalent ounces.

The measured and indicated resource is 1316 Mt (million metric tons) at a grade of 0.50 g/t gold (grams per metric ton) and 1.14 g/t silver including 1217 Mt at a grade of 0.18% copper.

The additional inferred resource is 458 Mt at a grade of 0.35 g/t gold and 0.98 g/t silver, and includes 449 Mt at a grade of 0.15% copper.

Exeter's 100% owned Caspiche Project in Chile (with a 3% Net Smelter Royalty to Anglo American Chile Limitada) is a gold-copper porphyry system, a type of deposit common to many of the world's largest open pit gold-copper mines. It is located 15 kilometres (8 miles) south of Kinross Gold's Refugio mine (+6 million ounce gold resource), and 10 kilometres (6 miles) north of the very large Cerro Casale gold-copper deposit (24 million ounce gold resource), owned by Kinross Gold (25%)and Barrick Gold (75%).

Mining 101: Ep 8. What is a Market Maker?

Market Maker Brendan E. Cryan explains what market makers are, and what they do.

From Wiki: A market maker is a company, or an individual, that quotes both a buy and a sell price in a financial instrument or commodity held in inventory, hoping to make a profit on the bid-offer spread, or turn. From a market microstructure theory standpoint, market makers are net sellers of an option to be adversely selected at a premium proportional to the trading range at which they are willing to provide liquidity.
