Chase Mining To Supply 2K-5K Tonnes Of Monthly Topaz Concentrate Under New Offtake Offer

The company has a market capitalisation of A$3.1 million. … as compared to $9.5 in 2017, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics.
Chase Mining

Chase Mining Corporation Limited (ASX: CML) is an ASX listed metals and mining company based in Australia. It has several projects in Australia and Canada which are owned by the company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries; Torrington Minerals Pty Ltd which operates in Australia and Zeus Minerals Pty Ltd (Australian subsidiary) and Zeus Olympus Sub Corp (Canadian subsidiary) both of which operate in Canada.

On 23rd April 2019, the company announced that it has received a conditional written indicative future offtake offer under which the company will be supplying 2,000 to 5,000 tonnes of topaz concentrate per month. The primary condition for the quality of the product that is to be met under the offtake agreement is optimisation of the topaz concentrate to a level which ensures that its free silica (quartz) content is less than 1%. This is to meet the respiratory health concerns to make sure that a saleable abrasive product is produced.

This follows an extensive quality testing of a bulk sample of the nominally 97% topaz concentrate by an international abrasives supply company. Chase Mining has supplied the material for the testing which is representative of what would be produced by a proposed gravity recovery plant.

To meet the product quality, the company is taking forward its ongoing topaz concentrate clean-up (free silica/quartz removal) testwork which includes experimentation with modified electrostatic methods after minor pH changes and Heavy Media Separation (HMS) to similarly remove the quartz from the topaz. These are however not been proven economically viable for the commercialisation given the relatively low value of abrasive products.

The company has contacted Satake Australia in Penrith which produces and market Air Gravity Tables for grain and other seed cleaning purposes. Satake Australia has a small demonstration plant which it has used for the non-quantitative testwork on the topaz. The testwork is not optimised for mineral separation, and dark coloured impurities (tungsten and monazite) were clearly seen at the top of the table and the quartz at the bottom portion. Microscope studies of a total of 10 samples indicated that the topaz concentrate is largely free of quartz, but the samples were not processed through a magnetic separation due to which dark impurities were also present in the sample. After these basic tests, air separation is being considered that could be a commercial option for the removal of the free silica (quartz) content of the topaz concentrate to below 1%.

The two table tests confirmed that at least 50% of the topaz at a silica content is meeting the specifications set by blasting media health and is achievable on an air table.

The company has a market capitalisation of A$3.1 million. The stock has 52-week high and low of A$0.065 and A$0.015. The stock has shot up by 20% and is trading at an intraday high of A$0.018 as of 23rd April 2019 (AEST: 01:43 PM). In the last six months, the stock has delivered a negative return of 65.9%, and YTD return stands at negative 42.3%

TCS Quartz Blockchain Platform Introduces Support for Ripple

Launched a few months back, Quartz is an API that allows TCS clients to easily connect to other existing distributed ledger based payment networks …

TCS has also joined the club of Indian companies supporting Ripple for cross-border transactions. Company’s Quartz blockchain solution will work with Ripple’s products. This was announced yesterday.

Tata Consultancy Services

It looks like Ripple’s technology has found a new tryst among Indian corporations. After various banks now IT major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has also joined hands with Ripple for providing blockchain related services to its prestigious clients around the globe. The clientele of the company includes Citibank UK, General Electric and Microsoft, and therefore it’s looking that the company can play a major role in increasing the adoption of RippleNet.

TCS said in its announcement that it will be offering a new way of connecting to Ripple’s cross-border payment solutions. TCS already offers its own Quartz blockchain platform, and according to company’s press release, Ripple’s solutions will work jointly with that platform. Have a look on what company’s PR said:

“The Quartz Cross Border Remittances solution enables banks/payments systems to connect to newer DLT based payment infrastructures (like RippleNet) for processing of Cross border FX remittance transactions.

The Quartz Gateway seamlessly connects the TCS BaNCS Payments system to the blockchain based Payments platform using APIs, and supports services related to FX Quote finalization and debit/credit of beneficiary accounts. Leveraging this approach, existing/core systems operational at banks/ other payment institutions need not undergo changes in connecting to the blockchain platform, as this complexity is absorbed by the Quartz Gateway.”

Interestingly, the company didn’t specifically tell about which Ripple solutions are going to work with its Quartz platform. It may be RippleNet, or it may also be xRapid. We’ll have to wait for a while to know about it. But since Quartz platform utilizes R3’s Corda Enterprise Blockchain platform, XRP integration in Quartz will be an easy affair due to in-built support for it in Corda. For more details we’ll have to wait.

Launched a few months back, Quartz is an API that allows TCS clients to easily connect to other existing distributed ledger based payment networks for real-time settlement of cross-border transactions. Since Ripple is emerging as a major force in cross-border remittances, it was only a matter of time for Quartz to start supporting it. And now it has happened. We’ll keep an eye also on the other developments related to this thing and will let you know as they unfold in the coming days.
