A leader in underground mine vehicle technology

Anchises Technology has become known as the Chinese leader in Underground Mining Vehicle technologies and since the company started in 1982. It has been at the forefront of eight leading industry innovations for underground trackless equipment.

The company markets its underground mine vehicles under the trade name SinoMe.

In 1982, Anchises introduced electric underground load haul dump trucks to China. Nine years later the company developed China’s first electric underground loaders which had a bucket capacity of 4 cubic meters.

In 1997 the company developed China’s first multi-disk wet brake and holds three patents over this technology. The following year, the company developed China’s first civil aviation medium-sized aircraft towing tractor. In the same year, Anchises developed the first underground low profile dump truck with a hauling capacity of 25 tons in China.

In 2002 the company became the first private enterprise to manufacture and supply underground trackless equipment in China.

In 2004, the company launched a series of underground trackless equipment using its own proprietary designs. Later that year, the company made its first export of a 2 cubic meter capacity underground loader to South America..

In 2005, the company became the first manufacturer to establish a research centre for underground mining vehicle technologies in China.

Anchises Technology president Maolin Feng says: “Our technology is based on vehicle technology, engine drive lines, hydraulics, brake systems, safety and tyres.

“We have a very strong design in drive lines including application of engines, converters, transmission and axles,” Maolin Feng says.

“We do not incorporate high technological components in our equipment, rather we simplify the working mechanisms because companies are looking for good performance, quality and above all easy maintenance. This has been ideal for the smaller and medium size mine operators.”

“We also supply modern equipments for high requirement such as remote control LHD, trucks and LHDs equipped with electronic control, automatic extinguish, center lubrication system, air condition cab etc.”

Anchises Technology SinoMe range of underground mine vehicles is growing at an average rate of 25% year on year. During the 2007-2008 year, sales were 60% domestic and 40% international, however during last year’s global downturn; sales were predominantly to the domestic market.

AUSTRALIA – Baramine drilling program

Australian manganese explorer Shaw River Resources has started an extensive 6000 metre drilling program at its 70%-owned Baramine Project in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Baramine is 80km to the north-west of the Woodie Woodie Manganese Mine
The program of up to 128 drill holes will target 63 manganese prospects and trends identified by previous work programs, including follow-up to previous drilling campaigns.
These earlier results highlighted the existence of mineralization similar to that at the world-class Woodie Woodie project. There were 61 significant intersections with greater than 10% manganese over 2 metres in width from only 120 holes drilled. Grades were up to 38% manganese.
The process of identifying the targets in the lead-up to the current drilling program has been closely supervised by Shaw River’s senior manganese consultant Dr Joe Drake-Brockman, who spent eight years targeting manganese at Woodie Woodie.
Shaw River’s managing director Vincent Algar says the new program will more than double the current number of drill holes at Baramine with first assay results expected in August.
“Shaw River is very excited to be recommencing drilling at Baramine, where we are targeting a significant manganese discovery. Baramine’s location and geology in the East Pilbara Manganese Province makes it ideal for high grade manganese exploration because it shares so many geological similarities with the Woodie Woodie deposits.”
Shaw River is a focused manganese explorer, currently operating five Pilbara manganese projects, and holding an 80% stake in a Ghanaian manganese and gold project.
In the remainder of 2010, Shaw River will undertake active manganese drilling programs at its Butre (Ghana), Skull Springs (Pilbara) and Baramine (Pilbara) projects. Shaw River is maintaining its active manganese project acquisition strategy as it continues to build its manganese project pipeline.

AUSTRALIA – Mineral Hill drilling

Infill drilling on Mindoro Resources’ Agata Nickel Project continues to intersect thick nickel laterite mineralization with grades and thickness of potential economic interest.
A total of 108 holes for 2038 metres have been completed from a detailed infill drilling program totalling 2500 to 3000 metres.
More assay results have been received for 723 core samples from 36 holes, drilled on 25 x 25 metre and 50 x 50 metre patterns.
The limonite horizon averages 1.13% nickel, 0.14% cobalt and 48% iron over an average thickness of 3.50 metres.
Significant limonite intersections were 7.55 metres from 2 metres @ 1.36% nickel, 0.13% cobalt and 48% iron; 8.15 metres from 2.15 metres @ 1.20% nickel, 0.15% cobalt and 50% iron; 7.40 metres from 1 metre @ 1.21% nickel, 0.19% cobalt and 49% iron; 7.45 metres from 1.85 metres @ 1.17% nickel, 0.13% cobalt and 505 iron; and 7 metres from 2.85 metres @ 1.11% nickel, 0.13% cobalt and 42% iron.
The underlying saprolite horizon averages 1.28% nickel over an average thickness of 7.96 metres. The more significant saprolite intersections were 28.2 metres from 2.2 metres @ 1.09% nickel, 0.01% cobalt and 8% iron; 18.85 metres from 4.10 metres @ 1.49% nickel, 0.02% cobalt and 9% iron; 20.35 metres from 3.3 metres @ 1.37% nickel, 0.03% cobalt and 9% iron; 10.2 metres from 5.5 metre @ 1.89% nickel, 0.03% cobalt and 12% iron; 15.7 metres from 1.4 metres @ 1.13% nickel, 0.01% cobalt and 8% iron; and 7.75 metres from 5.3 metres @ 1.85% nickel, 0.07% cobalt and 13% iron.
The results to date include grades and thicknesses consistent with those previously reported. These continue to be of potential economic interest as potential direct shipping ore (DSO) nickel-iron limonite for the Chinese nickel-pig iron market and high grade transition to saprolite ore for Chinese Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) and/or other acid leach or ferronickel processing facilities in Australasia.
Following the DSO detailed definition program Mindoro will begin drilling the regional nickel laterite exploration target in order to convert a significant proportion of the 50 million to 70 million DMT @ 0.9% to 1.2% nickel exploration target to NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource.

CAMBODIA - Anchor drilling success

DRILLING and trenching by Southern Gold at the Anchor Gold Project have confirmed further significant gold, silver and base metal mineralization.

A diamond core drilling campaign of 19 drill holes for about 2100 metres has been completed with best assay results being 4.3 metres from 147 metres @ 4.76 grams/tonne gold, 136.1 grams/tonne silver, 1.4% copper and 0.4% zinc.

Other results include 1 metre from 66 metres @ 11.36 grams/tonne gold, 64.5 grams/tonne silver, 0.4% copper and 1.7% zinc; 1 metre from 45 metres @ 1.22 grams/tonne gold, 6.0 grams/tonne silver, 0.04% copper and 0.02% zinc; and 1 metre from 57 metres @ 1.04 grams/tonne gold, 9.2 grams/tonne silver, 0.05% copper and 0.05% zinc.

Alteration, veins and sulphides were intersected in all 19 holes. Drilling so far has only focused on a 200 metres wide section, with the potential of the large 800 metres by 1000 metres mineralized zone identified by Southern Gold at Anchor yet to be fully tested.

A cross-section of these recent drilling results indicates that mineralization is characterized as a series of sub-parallel zones carrying significant levels of gold, silver, copper and other metals.

More veins and brecciated mineralized zones are likely to be identified at Anchor as the drilling results are received and gaps in the section are drilled.

A 2445 metre trenching program has also been completed and assay results are starting to come in, including 1 metre @ 9.14 grams/tonne gold.

Based on the mineralization now identified at Anchor, Southern Gold anticipates that infill resource drilling will begin in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Southern Gold is sole funding exploration on Anchor, which is on the Snoul licence, one of the company’s four 100%-owned tenements in Cambodia. It also has three tenements in a joint venture with JOGMEC.
