Australian Mines - Preliminary findings of Feasibility Study indicate additional cobalt-nickel mineralisation potential at Sconi Project, Queensland

Australian Mines Limited (ASX: AUZ) remains focused on optimising the Bankable Feasibility Study on the Sconi Project for cobalt and nickel production. The Company has found the previous sterilisation drilling, optimised for scandium production, intersected similar grades of cobalt and nickel to those included in the project’s current Mineral Resource – indicating that the overall footprint of cobalt and nickel mineralisation may be larger than previously indicated. As a result, Australian Mines are re-evaluating the location and layout of the full-scale cobalt-nickel-scandium processing plant to ensure the final site design enables maximum operational efficiency.
