Sconi Project - Australian Mines Limited

Sconi Project


Our flagship Sconi Project is one of very few large ore bodies of its type in Australia and is also considered the most advanced towards production.

All relevant mining and environmental licences are in place for development of a mining and processing operation at Sconi, located in the historic and well-supported mining centre of Greenvale in Queensland.

The Pre-Feasibility Study for Sconi was based on throughput estimated to deliver an annual average production of 3,010 tonnes of cobalt sulphate, 24,420 tonnes of nickel sulphate and 77 tonnes of scandium oxide for at least the first 20 years, with average feed grades being 0.11% cobalt, 0.81% nickel and 109 g/t scandium.

A Bankable Feasibility Study is assessing scenarios which include the trebling the volumes produced annually from the ore body.
