Sconi Project

Cobalt-Nickel-Scandium

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

The economic modelling completed for the Sconi Project Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS released November 2018) demonstrated that the project supports a two million tonne per annum process plant that would deliver long-term benefits to both the regional Queensland community and Australian Mines shareholders.

Life of Mine average annual production in the BFS is projected to be 8,500 tonnes of cobalt sulphate (1,780 tonnes metal equivalent); 53,300 tonnes of nickel sulphate (11,900 tonnes metal equivalent); and 89 tonnes of scandium oxide. This is based on an initial 18-year project life, however, the Sconi Project is expected to continue significantly beyond this given the opportunities for additional resources and exploration upside outlined by current Mineral Resource extension drilling.
