"Sinclair is as close to the perfect acquisition as we could have hoped for. It has an existing known deposit extension, established mine infrastructure, two emerging exploration discoveries immediately adjacent to the existing mine, and huge untapped regional exploration potential."
Alan Senior - Chairman, Talisman Mining Limited
The Sinclair Nickel Project is located in the southern portion of the Agnew-Wiluna Belt in Western Australia, one of the world’s premier nickel provinces with over 9 million tonnes of reported contained nickel metal.
The Sinclair Nickel Project includes extensive new-near infrastructure including an existing open-cut and underground mine, an on-site 300,000tpa Concentrator, sealed airstrip and +200-person accommodation village. The process plant and mine were placed on care and maintenance in August 2013 and have been maintained to a very high standard.
Nickel mineralisation at Sinclair continues down-plunge beyond the current underground mine infrastructure and has been identified in drilling for a further 1km along strike from the end of actual mining development
The Sinclair Project also offers outstanding near-mine exploration potential along two additional mineralised ultramafic channels at the Skye and Stirling Prospects which have been identified to the south and trend underneath and parallel to the main Sinclair ore body
Within an 8km strike length along the Sinclair Trend, several exploration prospects contain substantial volumes of near-surface prospective high-MgO ultramafic rock, have coincident ground and down-hole EM targets and existing nickel sulphide intersections.
The Sinclair Nickel Project includes an extensive 300km2 tenement package covering at least five known ultra-mafic volcanic sequences which are considered prospective for massive nickel sulphide mineralisation.
The Springfield Project comprises a 303km2 ground package located approximately 150km north east of Meekatharra in the northern Murchison Goldfields.
The Halloween Project is located approximately 16.5km west of the Springfield Project and 11.5km south-west of, and along strike from, the high-grade DeGrussa Deposit.
The Halloween West Joint Venture Project comprises an area of approximately 18.5km² and lies immediately adjacent to the Company’s Halloween Project.
