Manuka Resources Ltd (ASX: MKR) has 100% ownership of a JORC compliant 52Moz silver Mineral Resource, existing plant and infrastructure comprising of the Manuka Plant, a mining accommodation camp site, the Ore Stockpile and a tailings storage facility. Manuka also has a 940km2 prospective exploration portfolio in a renowned mineral province hosting numerous large mineral deposits.

The Silver Project is located near Cobar in central NSW. Manuka aims to recommence processing operations in the second half of 2017.

Silver has long been valued as a precious metal and is used in (amongst other things):

  • electrical contacts and conductors, specialized mirrors, window coatings, and in catalysis of chemical reactions;
  • solar panels, water filtration, jewellery, ornaments, high-value tableware and utensils;
  • disinfectants and microbicides (oligodynamic effect), added to bandages and wound-dressings, catheters, and other medical instruments; and
  • solar panel arrays and smart phones and new storage battery technologies.

In addition, silver has historically been traded as a pseudo currency and is a metal which historical data indicates has been supply-constrained.

Manuka has identified a potential source of near term revenue, namely the processing of approximately 500,000 tonnes of existing silver-lead ore stockpiled on the Manuka Silver Project run of mine pad to produce silver doré bars for subsequent third party refining and sale. 

Manuka also intends to undertake drilling and exploration activities within its 940km2 portfolio of prospective tenements, located in a renowned mineral province hosting numerous large mineral deposits. 

Manuka Resources Ltd is looking to raise $10 million to $13 million and will use these funds to refurbish the Manuka Plant, re-commence mineral processing and undertake drilling activities in order to define an Ore Reserve. Manuka will have a market capitalisation of between $65m and $68m at IPO.
