Jameson Resources has announced positive property-wide coal quality at its Crown Mountain coking coal project in Canada.
The company announced that the CSR result from sole heated oven (SHO) testing for the final outstanding sample, LDC hole 11-19 has been received and confirms earlier results indicating the product to be hard coking coal.
Hard coking coal
Norwest Corporation has reviewed the coal quality results and believes the Crown Mountain coal will compare favourably with the best hard coking coals in Canada.
Norwest also updated the project’s resource model by incorporating results from the 2013 drilling program. Measured and Indicated resources increased by 8.6 million t, from 66.3 million to 74.9 million t. The volume of Inferred resource remains at 23.7 million t, as the Southern Extension was not explored in 2013.
Crown Mountain resources
The re-estimation of the Crown Mountain resource tonnage, along with coal quality results indicating hard coking coal, will be followed over the next few months by completion of the PFS and a new technical report.
Jameson is still in the process of collecting the data needed to initiate the Environmental Assessment process.
