Posse Iron Project
Posse is located in Brazil's World Famous Iron Quadrilateral region of Minas Gerais state and is a low capital cost project with no infrastructure bottlenecks and simple logistics. Posse contains an Indicated Mineral Resource of 4.83Mt at 47.39% Fe and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 31.18Mt atm 42.89% Fe. (Refer to ASX announcement made 11 May 2009)
Located less than 30km from the capital of Belo Horizonte -also known as the mining capital of Brazil, Belo has a population of over 4 million people, an experienced mining workforce, contract mine operators and excellent infrastructure including an international airport and over 100 pig iron smelters within less than 180km radius of the project.
The project is based on the use of bulk open pit mining methods and a processing plant dry treating up to 1Mtpa of iron ore for the first 12-24 months of mine life. A high grade lump will be produced during this first stage.
A further 8 years of mine life at a rate of ~1Mtpa is proposed following approval of an expanded treatment license- allowing for wet beneficiation. Sales of lump, pellet feed and fines are expected during the second stage.
Posse site activities are continuing, with earthworks for drainage and the beneficiation plant nearing commissioning.
Crusader has been granted authorisation to complete site works whilst awaiting the granting of the operating license.
