Talisman’s objective is to maximise value to shareholders through exploration, discovery and development or commercialisation of high value mineral resource opportunities in base and precious metals within Australia. Talisman is well funded to pursue it’s strategy.
Talisman has a portfolio of highly prospective and strategic ground providing a pipeline of opportunities. The Lachlan Project area covers an extensive strike extent along the Gilmore suture within the richly mineralised Cobar/Mineral Hill region. This region has produced many long-life, high-grade mineral discoveries and has the potential to host a variety of deposit types. Talisman believes there is significant potential for the discovery of substantial base metals and gold mineralisation within this land package and has identified a number of areas that show evidence of base and precious metals endowment which have had very little modern systematic exploration completed to date. The Sinclair Nickel Project located in the Agnew-Wiluna greenstone belt in WA has extensive infrastructure including a sulphide flotation processing plant that produced approximately 38,500 tonnes of nickel at an average life-of-mine head grade of 2.44% Ni from 2008-2013 from the Sinclair deposit (currently on care and maintenance). Mineralisation at the Sinclair deposit continues beyond the current underground mine infrastructure and Sinclair has a JORC Indicated and Inferred Resource1 of 720,000t @ 2.3% Ni for 16,200t of contained nickel and an Exploration Target ranging between approximately 670,000t @ 2.0% Ni for 13,700t and 790,000t @ 2.5% Ni for 19,900t of contained nickel. The substantial tenement package of granted mining leases covers more than 80km of strike in prospective ultramafic contact within a 35km radius of existing processing plant and infrastructure.
The Talisman Mining team consists of experienced resource executives who have worked for junior and major resource companies and are directed and supported by a Board with a wide range of experience across the resource spectrum and within investment banking. Talisman has a corporate culture focused on maximising the core value of its assets and maintaining focus on value-add exploration activities to optimise the effectiveness and efficiency of the money going into the ground to shorten the time frame to success. We aim to adopt a collaborative approach to build solid relationships and develop mutually beneficial partnerships and opportunities with strong commitment across our team and with stakeholders.
The health and well-being of our people is central to our approach to business and we are committed to ensuring we maintain a safe workplace for our employees and contractors. Talisman aims to comply with all environmental requirements and minimise the impact of its activities in the areas in which it operates; and to engage in an open and collaborative manner with all stakeholder to ensure our activities are in line with the expectations and requirements of the communities in which we operate.
