Magnetic surveying begins at Mongolian coal mine

World Coal,


Newera Resources has commenced a ground magnetic survey at the Ulaan Tolgoi project in the South Gobi basin in Southern Mongolia.

The ground magnetic survey will comprise 700 line km, covering the northern sector of the Ulaan Tolgoi licence area. The survey is expected to be completed within two weeks.

Newera has noted that the recent discovery of a black coal bearing sub-basin immediately adjacent to the northern boundary of the Ulaan Tolgoi licence, and the testing has produced shallow, mineable intersections of high quality black coal.

Newera is using the services of the same geophysical survey contractors whom conducted the ground magnetic survey immediately to the north of Newera’s Ulaan Tolgoi Licence, and were also the group that outlined the nearby black coal bearing sub-basin.

The 43,000 ha. Ulaan Tolgoi project is located in the South Gobi province of Mongolia, 100 km from the Chinese Border.

Minor coal outcrops and a number of water wells along the Nariin Sukhait thrust fault 300 km to the west of Ulaan Tolgoi led to the discovery of the large MAK and Ovoot Tolgoi metallurgical/thermal coal deposits.
