Astral Resources: Gold Exploration with Highly Prospective Assets in Western Australia


Astral Resources (ASX:AAR) is a gold mineral exploration company focusing on three assets are the Mandilla gold project, the Feysville gold project, and the Carnilya Hill gold project. Astral is advancing its flagship Mandilla gold project, with a mineral resource estimate of 37 Mt at 1.1 g/t gold for 1.27 Moz. The 100 percent owned Feysville is another key project that hosts a mineral resource estimate of 3 million tons (Mt) at 1.3 grams per ton (g/t) gold for 116,000 ounces (oz) of contained gold.

The scoping study completed at Mandilla highlighted the Theia deposit, which accounts for 81 percent of the total Mandilla mineral resource estimate. The deposit hosts a mineral resource estimate of 29 Mt at 1.1 g/t gold for 1.02 Moz of contained gold in one large open pit. The scoping study indicates a mine life of 11 years with an annual production of 100,000 oz in the first seven and a half years, dropping to 41,000 oz for the remaining three and a half years. The study outlines compelling financial metrics, including NPV@8 percent of AU$442 million, free cash flow of AU$740 million, and a payback period of nine months.

Mandilla Gold project

Astral continues to advance exploration and resource expansion efforts at Mandilla with plans to commence a pre-feasibility study. The company completed a six-hole 1,832 metre drilling program at Theia deposit last year. The assay results have been released and indicate a high potential for the conversion of inferred resources to higher confidence indicated resources. The assay results include: 39 metres at 5.4 g/t gold, 29 metres at 2.8 g/t gold, 28 metres at 1.4 g/t gold, 8 metres at 8.8 g/t gold.
