Bonaparte Diamonds, JV partner upgrades resource base of Namibian phosphate project

13 july 2009

Phosphate-explorer Bonaparte and its joint venture (JV) partner, Union Resources says they have upgraded the resource base of the Sandpiper/Meob phosphate JV project in Namibia.
Inferred mineral resources within the sample area were converted to the indicated category following a programme of infill gravity core sampling focus area of 10 l m2.
The previous inferred resource estimate for the 10 km2 area was 17,7-million wet tonnes, averaging 18,1 percent phosphate.
“The JV partners consider the high conversion rate from inferred to indicated status, and the increase in average grade, to be a significant demonstration of the robust nature of the marine phosphate deposit,” said Bonaparte in a statement.
“The result substantiates the high level of confidence that the JV partners have in regard to the resource, and provides additional impetus to take the project to full feasibility as a priority.”
The JV would be concentrating on an area of about 132 km2 that was considered to lie within the reach of existing trailing suction arm dredge technology.
The area hosted an estimated inferred mineral resource of 238-million tonnes at an average grade of 17, 7 percent phosphate.
