Duyker Eiland Data

Duyker Eiland Information

  • Geology 2015-05-25
    At the Western Cape projects, the regional geology is marked by the presence of Tertiary/Quaternary sediments consisting of calcareous and aeolian sands, calcretes and phoscretes. At Duyker Eiland, a portion of the Vredenburg granitic pluton is overlain by sediments of the Varswater formation, which is part of the Miocene-Pliocene Sandveld group, and limestones and calcarenites of the Pleistocene Langebaan formation. At the Property, sands, clayey sands and gravels of the phosphate-bearing Varswater formation sediments are partially overlain by limestones of the Langebaan Formation, which is exposed on top and along the shoulders of the small hill that dominates the topography of the area. The phosphate mineralization occurs as rounded and sub-rounded,polished collophane grains. A similar geologic setting is observed at the Phillips Kraal project. Desktop studies indicate that historic targets at Lamberts Bay also occur in the Varswater Formation. The Bierkraal project area is located in an apatite rich layer of the Bushveld Igneous Complex.
  • General 2015-05-10
    The Duyker Eiland project area has historical prospecting results of approximately 30Mt of phosphatic sands. In the 1940's and 1950's, AMCOR conducted mineral exploration on the property. During the 1960's, African Explosives and Chemical Industries Limited (AECI) conducted drilling and pitting on a 3.0 km by 0.5 km area extending over the property. Historical records of the exploration drilling program have been lost. AECI conducted flotation tests, and obtained a concentrate with 33.0 % P2O5 (87 % collophane). These estimation and flotation results are historical in nature, and do not comply with NI 43-101 definitions. Historical prospecting results are also published for the area of the Phillips Kraal project though the records have also been lost. On October 18, 2010 a subsidiary of the Corporation entered into an amended binding term sheet agreement providing for the right to acquire Eurozone Investments Limited (“Eurozone”). Celtic Trust Company Limited and its subsidiaries hold interests in four phosphate exploration projects in South Africa (the “Phosco assets”). The Corporation paid $100,000 to the vendor in consideration for receiving an exclusivity period to conduct due diligence.

  • Montero Evaluates Extensive Off-Shore Phosphate Deposits in South Africa 2015-12-01

    TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 1, 2015) - Montero Mining and Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MON) ("Montero") has completed an initial review of geological data relating to extensive off-shore sedimentary phosphate deposits within the Greenflash Project area in South Africa. The Greenflash Project is the second phosphate asset being advanced with funding partner Ovation Capital ("Ovation") in South Africa. Ovation has committed to expenditures of roughly CDN $2.7 million to acquire a 10% interest in Montero's Duyker Eiland project. At the Greenflash Project, Ovation has agreed to co-fund due diligence with Montero, where, upon receiving a positive review, may elect to provide Montero 100% of the funding to outline a resource for equity participation in the project (see press release September 10, 2015). The Greenflash Project could potentially provide additional feedstock to a Fertilizer Plant envisaged to be developed in Saldanha Bay by Montero and Ovation.
