Sounds like this is the software the geo's are using:
When exploration and mining companies need to evaluate the financial viability and the optimal mine strategy for a deposit, they turn to the industry leading strategic mine planning solution – GEOVIA Whittle™.
Companies depend on Whittle to help them determine their investment strategy and to deliver robust mine plans that maximize profitability by taking into account real mining constraints.
The Board of Xtract Resources Plc ("Xtract" or the "Company") provides an update on progress of hole BRDD-21-006 of the Phase One diamond drilling programme at the Racecourse Mineral Resource on the Bushranger copper-gold exploration project, located in the Lachlan Fold Belt ("LFB") of New South Wales, Australia.
Drilling on hole BRDD-21-006 recommenced at the Bushranger project today earlier than anticipated, as the adverse weather conditions on site relented (see news release of 23 March 2021).
The hole has now advanced to 333m depth with continuing pyrite, pyrrhotite and traces of chalcopyrite, as reported yesterday, typical of the outer margin of the Racecourse porphyry system.
There's an interview with CB some time ago where he discusses expanding the management team, I got the impression he thought the salaries they were after was too high for a Low cap miner. He also bought on a bloke, can't recall his name, to help with PR, his first interview was a complete shambles and we haven't heard from him since...(I hope he's not still getting a salary!)
I do agree CB needs to take a back seat in terms of being the figurehead of XTR - too often in interviews he strays from the facts, something he does not appear to be learning from when his comments do not materialise.
IMO he should stick to researching new prospects and dealing with the geo's etc. I imagine he's be a good man to have in the board room if when there are discussion around a buy-out as he's obviously been through that process before...
Understanding how porphyry-type copper deposits are formed21 Mar 2021 19:54
'Researchers from the University of Exeter, the British Geological Survey and the University of Surrey published a study that addresses the missing link in models that explain the formation of porphyry-type copper deposits.'
Agreed, but surely it's better just to say nothing unless you have a definitive date? It just leads to expectations from the market (and most, IMO, are thinking a few days when the term 'imminent' is used) - One day CB will learn this......
