Dear fellow chatters, lurkers and mining investors,

This is the second article from the Mining Catalyst series. In this article I will identify 3 upcoming catalysts of the somewhat lesser known resource companies.

Oklo Resources Ltd. – Drill Results Socaf Project $OKU.AX

This company was brought to my attention by @MiningBookGuy and @Nick. Oklo Resources Ltd. Is an ASX-listed gold exploration company with focus on Mali. The focus is on three targets:

Dandako, Socaf and Yanfolila project.

Recently they completed two drilling programs on the Socaf Project. Assays are pending and could be released any day now.

Historical trenching and drilling from 2007/2008 showed significant gold mineralization including:

     • 29m at 1.27 g/t gold

     • 8m at 4.1 g/t gold

     • 8m at g/t gold

Drilling is very limited on this project so if the results are good this could be very interesting

Novo Resources Corp. – Preliminary Economic Assessment $NVO

Novo Resources Corp. is expected to release a PEA on their Beatons Creek in Australia. The Beatons has shallowly buried gold-bearing reefs.

In September 2015 they released a new resource estimate:

      • Total Indicated 2,9 g/t Au 299,000 ounces

      • Total Inferred 2,7 g/t Au 259,000 ounces

They will be using a selective mining method. No drilling or blasting is required. All near-surface material can easily be ripped and pushed with a bulldozer, as shown below.

Because of this selected mining method, initial capex is expected to be low and the project can be quickly moved into production.

Orex Minerals Inc. – Initial Resource Estimate Coneto Project $REX.V

Orex Minerals Inc. has 4 projects. 3 projects in Mexico and 1 project in Canada.

Orex Minerals Inc. Is expected to release an Initial Resource Estimate on their gold/silver project in Mexico. The Coneto project is a Joint Venture Co with Fresnillo PLC. Fresnillo earned 55% by spending $6 million dollars in exploration in the last 3 years.

A total of 71 holes and 21.398 of diamond drilling is completed on the project. This is the first resource estimate in Mexico for the company so considered a good catalyst.  

Comments and questions are welcome. I'm working on a website right and will be live very soon. Let me know if you are interested in a free trial.
