Additional High Grade Results From Phase 4 Infill Mineral Resource Drilling Programme at the Araguaia Nickel Project, Brazil

LONDON, June 3, 2015 /CNW/ - Horizonte Minerals Plc, (AIM: HZM, TSX: HZM) ('Horizonte' or 'the Company') the nickel development company focused in Brazil, is pleased to announce the final results from its Phase 4 infill resource drilling programme at its 100% owned Araguaia nickel project ('Araguaia') in Para State, north central Brazil.  The drill programme is now complete and has demonstrated consistent high grade drill intersections.

Highlights

  • High grade nickel intersections from infill resource drilling on the Pequizeiro deposit include:
    • 11.30 meters grading 2.95% Ni
    • 9.21 meters grading 2.50% Ni
    • 11.82 meters grading 2.39% Ni
    • 14.05 meters grading 2.33% Ni
    • 18.99 meters grading 2.27% Ni
  • High grade nickel intersections from infill resource drilling on the Jacutinga deposit include: 
    • 4.44 meters grading 3.04% Ni
    • 12.13 meters grading 2.43% Ni
    • 17.44 meters grading 2.38% Ni
    • 19.67 meters grading 2.07% Ni
    • 17.30 meters grading 2.07% Ni

Horizonte CEO Jeremy Martin said, "It's encouraging to report a significant number of high grade drill results (greater than 2% nickel) from our phase 4 mineral resource drilling programme at Araguaia.  The full set of results have now been received for the drilling across the Pequizeiro and Jacutinga deposits, and these two areas will support the initial 8 to 10 years mine life.   These results further support the high grade zones within the current NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate, so we have an increased degree of confidence that we will not see any significant reduction in the planned nickel grades over the early period of mine life.

"We are making good progress on other areas of the Feasibility work at Araguaia.  The full scale Rotary Kiln Electric Furnace pilot campaign is progressing to schedule and we look forward to providing updates on this work in due course""

Further Details

The phase 4 mineral resource drilling programme was designed to complete infill drilling on 50 metre x 50 metre grids on selected parts of the Pequizeiro and Jacutinga deposits.  The completed programme comprised a total of 310 holes totalling 10,255 metres, 261 holes totalling 8,764 metres on the Pequizeiro deposit and 49 holes totalling 1,491 metres on the Jacutinga deposit.

All the outstanding results on the Pequizeiro deposit comprising 218 holes are presented in Table 1 below. These results contain several high grade intersections including 11.30 meters grading 2.95% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1753), 9.21 meters grading 2.50% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1622), 11.82 meters grading 2.39% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1564), 14.05 meters grading 2.33% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1605) and 18.99 meters grading 2.27% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1785).

All the outstanding results on the Jacutinga deposit comprising 49 holes are presented in Table 2 below. These results contain several high grade intersections including 4.44 meters grading 3.04% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1677), 12.13 meters grading 2.43% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1700), 17.44 meters grading 2.38% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1680), 19.67 meters grading 2.07% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1707) and 17.30 meters grading 2.07% nickel (hole PCA_DD_1688).  Drill plan location maps are available on the Company website at www.horizonteminerals.com/uk/en/gallery/

No significant intersection

The compositing of the nickel grades in the individual holes was completed across geological boundaries using a nickel cut-off of 1% with a minimum intercept length of 2.0 metres and a maximum length of internal waste of 2 metres.  All holes were vertical and, as these nickel laterite deposits are essentially flat-lying, all widths given are true widths.  Core recoveries in the mineralised sections met the appropriate standards for this style of mineralisation and were generally >90%.

Sample preparation and analyses

Samples from drill core were crushed and pulverised at the ALS laboratory in Goiania and the resultant pulps analysed at the ALS laboratory in Lima, Peru using tetraborate fusion and X-Ray Fluorescence ('XRF').  Full QA/QC procedures were followed, including the insertion of standards, duplicates and blanks.  Check samples representing approximately 5% of all the samples will be sent to another international laboratory for analysis by XRF.

Horizonte Minerals prepared this news release and David Hall BSc, MSc, Fellow SEG P.Geo. a director of the Company and Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101, reviewed and approved the drillhole technical information.

About Horizonte Minerals:

Horizonte Minerals plc is an AIM and TSX-listed nickel development company focused in Brazil, which wholly owns the advanced Araguaia nickel laterite project located to the south of the Carajas mineral district of northern Brazil. 

The Company is developing Araguaia as the next major nickel mine in Brazil, with targeted production for early 2018. 

The Project is located south of the Carajas Mining district in northern Brazil, which has good infrastructure in place including rail, road, water and power, and has a current NI 43-101 compliant Mineral Resource of 71.98Mt grading 1.33% Ni (Indicated) and 25.4Mt at 1.21% Ni (Inferred) at a 0.95% nickel cut-off; included in Resources is a Probable Reserve base of 21.2Mt at 1.66%Ni.

A Pre-Feasibility Study has been completed which underpins the robust economics of developing a mine with a targeted 15,000tpa nickel in ferro-nickel output with a 20% Fe-Ni product over a 25 year mine life utilising the proven pyrometallurgical process of Rotary Kiln Electric Furnace technology.  At these production rates, the project has a post-tax NPV of US$519m at a discount rate of 8% and an IRR of 20%, with a capital cost of US$582m which puts this project in the lowest quartile of the cost curve.

Horizonte has a strong shareholder structure including Teck Resources Limited 38.5%, Henderson Global Investors 14%, Anglo Pacific Group 7%.
