I’m Greg Cochran, the Managing Director of Aurora Energy Metals, owner of the USA’s largest mineable measured and indicated uranium deposit.
Our followers and our shareholders may have picked up that last week we got a price and volume query from the ASX and understandably, we had to respond within 24 hours.
And we found it kind of easy to do because it’s quite obvious that on the back of months of really good, solid, technical work. Not stuff that’s necessarily newsworthy, but it’s laying the foundation for the future of the company as well as the wonderful tailwinds behind the uranium market, per se.
In addition to the fact that we had Euroz Hartley’s recently do an update report introducing a target price of $0.32 per share for Aurora. All these things combined to actually coincide with larger volumes and real interest in the share itself and in what we’re up to.
And yes, we are busy and yes, I know we’re not making lots of big noises about the progress we’re making but after all, we landed a ton of sample here in Perth recently and that’s in ALS. They’re busy starting the test work. Test work is focused on two things beneficiation and then leach work. So we’re looking forward to those results.
But that’s not the only activity that’s going on. We need to progress our permitting in Oregon and in Nevada, bearing in mind that we have a split dual state strategy and that’s progressing well as we speak.
So we’ve got the exploration plan of operations and about to launch a biological study within the next two weeks.
And so lots more news flow to come on that as well as on the results of metallurgical test work which feed into the Scoping study by the end of the year.
