Talisman also holds 100% of the Sinclair Nickel Project (Sinclair) located in the world-class Agnew-Wiluna greenstone belt in WA’s north-eastern Goldfields. The Sinclair nickel deposit, developed and commissioned in 2008 and operated successfully before being placed on care and maintenance in August 2013, produced approximately 38,500 tonnes of nickel at an average life-of-mine head grade of 2.44% nickel. Sinclair has extensive infrastructure and includes a substantial 290km2 tenement package covering more than 80km of strike in prospective ultramafic contact within a 35km radius of existing processing plant and infrastructure. Talisman is continuing to actively explore this tenement package to identify significant new nickel discoveries.
Talisman holds a 30% interest in the Springfield Joint Venture (Springfield) with Sandfire Resources NL (70% and JV manager). Springfield is located in a proven Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide province in Western Australia’s Bryah Basin and contains multiple prospective corridors and active exploration activities. Springfield hosts the high-grade Monty Copper-Gold deposit (Monty) which is located 10 kilometres from Sandfire’s DeGrussa operations. Monty is one of the highest-grade copper-gold discoveries made globally in recent decades and a Feasibility Study on its development was completed in March 2017. The Feasibility Study highlighted the strong technical and financial viability of Monty and as a result, the Joint Venture partners have approved to proceed to development. First ore production from Monty is forecast for late 2018.
