About the Changyun Coal Project
Located within the Bijie coal fields, Guizhou Province, the Changyun coal mine covers an area of 2.0954 sq. km with valid mining permits for a 150,000 MTPY coal mining operation, which may be expanded to 300,000 - 500,000 MTPY. Local historical reports (non-compliant with NI43-101) state that coal seams within the mine area are highly altered and would produce a low ash, low to medium sulphur (average 0.23%), and low-volatile (7-8% volatile matter) product, with high gross calorific value that ranges from 6400 to 7200 Kcal/kg. The thermal grade coal is suitable for power plant use. A ready market for production exists with the nearby power plants and other end users within Guizhou province.
In addition to the mine, Changyun has recently been provided with preferential rights to explore and develop a 20 sq. km of highly prospective exploration land surrounding the mine.
