IMX Resources Ltd. (TSX:IXR,ASX:IXR) announced that a consultancy group recently completed a high-level study into the feasibility of various development options for the company’s Tanzania-based Chilalo graphite project.

Phil Hoskins, CEO of IMX, commented:

The high-level study confirms that the Chilalo Graphite Project presents a near-term development opportunity and supports our decision to commence a pre-feasibility study focused on a smaller scale operation in the order of 25-50,000tpa of graphite concentrate.

The positive study outcome, coupled with the recent MOU with China-Base Ningbo, has laid the foundations for a successful graphite project at Chilalo. With the funding now flowing from the Fig Tree JV plus the recently concluded capital raising, we are in a strong position to rapidly advance Chilalo.

Highlights include:

  • A high-grade mineral resource (Inferred Resource of 7.4Mt grading 10.7% TGC for 792,000t of contained graphite for the Shimba deposit);
  • Excellent metallurgical characteristics, with initial testwork results showing a significant proportion of high-value large and jumbo flake material and the capacity to produce a high quality concentrate from basic flotation;
  • Access to important existing infrastructure, including:
    • commercial deep water port of Mtwara, located 220km from Chilalo, via a sealed (~160km) and hard dirt road (~60km);
    • IMX’s Ntaka Hill camp, with offices, messing, accommodation, core storage, telecommunications and a sample prep laboratory;
    • water supply at site; o regional power grid to be extended to project area during 2016; and
  • Excellent relationships with local communities and an established presence in the region through many years of exploration work at the Company’s Nachingwea Property.
