I dont.


Get this weekends Weekend Australian and see columnist comment re low grades and use of Cu equivelance.


large upgrade (just after IPO) without any new drilling can only raise ones eyebrows.....?


multi element deposits very risky with metallurgy, and the grades to this deposit do not look that strong..

I agree with Bromby's distaste for the use of metal equivalents - they started being used because lazy analysts couldn't handle the thoughts of two or more metals being in the ground in the same resource - it seems it was too hard for them to actually find out and know the price and relative value of different metals...


I don't like Cu Eq or Au Eq's either - people should just state what they have and what grade it is in what sort of reource category and be done with it.


But to quote from ASX release -


"Drill intercept in hole HRC 012 of 25m @ 6.1 g/t equivalent;

ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ Drill intercept in hole NP 42 of 6m @ 10 g/t equivalent.

The resource upgrade is near 400% if the open cut potential to 100 metres depth is included. This is a significant outcome for Capital Mining coming after almost 6 years of work."


Leads me to beleive/suppose that this resource re-estimate is using mostly historical data with a few more recent holes and mabye clicking the "optimistic" button instead of the "pessemistic" button on Datamine or Vulcan or whatever they use. I think at todays metal prices and with current and future demand - I think people are entitled to click a bit on the "optimistic" button.


Don't be silly and don't be scared of muti-metal VHMS deposits - its a proven technology to get Au Ag Cu Pb and Zn amostly recovered in various concentrates, they have been and continue to do it for CBH, Oxiana, Kagara, Xstrada and I don't hear any of their shareholders complaining about multi elemant deposits...

CMY has been rather quiet since those initial fireworks just after listing. It would appear they have found tellurium and interest from a US$20bn company at the same time.


From the Australian



Capital's glowing feeling
May 13, 2008
ALL eyes might be on Canberra and the Rudd Government's first ever budget, but Daily Assay reckons there is something more exciting going on just outside the outskirts of Australia's capital city.

Let's face it, the federal budget is not going to deliver any industry-specific news of note to the mining industry.

The best the mining types can hope for is some movement on how the federal Government will better tackle the problems of shortage in infrastructure and industry skills.

So, forget for a moment what is going down in Parliament House - there's more fun to be had with Capital Mining, the only Canberra-based mining company that Daily Assay can think of.

Since the beginning of May, its stock price has doubled as the market warms to the fact that Capital is sitting on something considered a rarity across the globe - tellurium.

Tellurium is a rare piece of gear, and in among the top-10 rarest elements on the planet.

For the quiz buffs, tellurium was used as part of the outer casing for the first atom bomb and, when exposed to it in the air, humans develop a somewhat nasty breath, akin to garlic.

It has been used mostly in alloys, but could find itself replacing silicon as the mainstay of silicon chips.

Indeed, Intel has been looking to use tellurium in its new breed of chips - and that could only spell one thing for tellurium lovers around the world.

What once was in short supply is going to be even harder to find.

And that's where Capital Mining comes in.

The Canberra-based junior told the sharemarket back in January that it had stumbled on some very high grade tellurium hits at the companyÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢s Stonehenge North Prospect, in its Chakola project, near Cooma in NSW.

Most punters would have still been sleeping off their New Year's Eve hangovers when Capital made the announcement on January 3. But it made the gang at World Industrial Minerals in the US sit up and take notice.

WIM are acting on behalf of First Solar, a group out of Arizona, US, with a market capitalisation of $US25 billion.

First Solar shares trade on the Nasdaq and have improved more than 1000 per cent since the end of 2006.

The rapid rise of First Solar on the food chain is largely due to the fact that it ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¦ÃƒƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“has become one of the fastest growing manufacturers of solar modules in the worldÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚ - or so the company's website proffers.

First Solar is the world's biggest consumer of tellurium, in the manufacture of its solar cells, so it is natural that it makes enquiries of Capital Mining and its recent hits at Chakola.

But, given First Solar's big run on the Nasdaq, analysts are beginning to question if the share price can be sustained, and central to that is where new supplies of tellurium are going to come from.

World production averages around 400 tonnes a year, but most of that comes through smelting of copper concentrates, and dedicated tellurium deposits are hard to come by. From a price of around $US30 a kilogram in 2000, the going price is now around $US300/kg.

Capital boss Rob McCauley readily admits that five months ago he knew very, very little about tellurium.

But all that changed after drilling at the Stonehenge North deposit returned grades of up to 59 grams per tonne of the rare element. Just to make sure, Capital re-sent the drill results to be assayed again.

ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¦ÃƒƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“That's what it is all about in the mining industry, looking for new opportunities,ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚ he said.

ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¦ÃƒƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“You might be heading down one road and find you also have to head down another.ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚ÂÂ

ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¦ÃƒƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“Tellurium can be very hit-and-miss, as it tends to come in veins. So, we are at a very early stage, but it does appear that this general area of south-east NSW happens to be conducive for tellurium.ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚ÂÂ

It needs to be noted that Capital does not have a mining licence yet for its Stonehenge North prospect, but it does have an exploration licence and has forged some good bonds with WIM, and therefore First Solar.

Stonehenge North is about 1km to the south of Capital's main focus, the Harnett gold and base metals prospect, which is looking like an open-pit proposal.

ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¦ÃƒƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“Notwithstanding the fact that the analysis of Capital's tellurium potential is ongoing, negotiations are only at an early stage regarding any possible offtake agreement or joint-development proposal,ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚ the company said in a statement to the market on Monday.

But given the world's growing appetite for all things green (and even the increased appetite for better and faster computer chips), tellurium is one to keep on the radar.





May be worth a second look? I have held these since the float.

Interesting acquisition.

A few key points to note about the market they are getting into

* 200million students in China - once monetised could be worth a few billion

* Cloud based technology- low overheads, easy and safe to run

* Comes out of 2 most the exclusive University's.(Tsinghua University and Beijing University)

* Only trialled on 60 text books

* Once rolled out on 100000 texts books and other major Universities turnover should be north of $300m

* Has been trialled at 2 Universities with several others to follow shortly.

* Chinese Government pouring hundreds of millions into education and remote education

Rumours/speculation flying around re: latest Trading Halt is that the acquisition is another revenue producing asset in the medical marijuana arena that is for script only. If true.... that will be further great news :) Hopefully it can go up from here DYOR
