TanzaniteOne completes tsavorite transaction

20 march 2009

Coloured-gemstone miner TanzaniteOne has completed its controversial tsavorite transaction saying it will immediately start developing the world’s largest single source of the green gemstone into production.
The project was acquired from Green Hill Mining and Kirkwood Resources 7, 4-million fully paid TanzaniteOne common shares plus USD350 000 in cash. 
TanzaniteOne began work on the Tsavorite Project in 2007 and has already established an independent resource estimation of 7.6 to 10.4 million bank cubic metres, equating to approximately 18.24 to 24.96 million tonnes of potentially open pit mineable tsavorite-bearing gravels (both alluvial and eluvial). 
“With the project potentially containing the world's largest single source of tsavorite, TanzaniteOne will further define the resource and develop a mine plan taking into account prioritisation of high value extraction,” the miner said in a statement to shareholders.
“Bulk sampling of the tsavorite deposit has commenced and forms part of a larger, ongoing resource upgrade to an Indicated Resource.”
TanzaniteOne managing director Zane Swanepoel said: “TanzaniteOne's objective for the Tsavorite project is to successfully replicate the high value stone extraction model achieved at our tanzanite operations and command a premium through consistent supply of high value stones to customers.”
The price per carat of tsavorite was some two to four times higher than tanzanite and roughly a quarter of the price of emerald.
