Udokan is just another iron in the coals for UMMC if they win the contract, they have plenty of other projets, Udokan is chiefly a copper resource whereas UMMC are diversing into base and precious metals Hence the interst in INL,s process... ..The reason I posted Udokan/UMMC is for awareness of the size of the company ..Cheers

How big is UMMC ...A read for INL Holders .....Russia's biggest copper prize will likely be decided on clout
The outcome of Russia’s big copper contest for the massive Udokan reserves may be a foregone conclusion.

Author: John Helmer
Posted: Thursday , 10 Apr 2008

MOSCOW -

Russia's biggest copper contest is going to be a very private affair. Even if there are just two, possibly three contenders, all Russian household names, predicting who will win over the next 90 days of the contest may prove to be more frustrating than it looks.

Forecasting the award of rich state assets like these, over the transition period between the two Russian Presidents, should be a reminder of the ancient Harpies. Zeus, the Greek god, was so jealous of Phineas, the man who knew too much, he sent him to an island, sat him down at a dinner-table, and loaded it with food, which the Harpies would fly in to steal, before Phineas had a chance to eat. The Harpies - three winged creatures, with feminine bodies and monster trunks - left their guano behind to make Phineas feel even worse about his appetite.

Udokan, located in the southeastern Siberian region of Chita, near the Chinese border, isn't made of guano. The largest unmined deposit of copper in Russia, and one of the largest in the world - Russian studies indicated a year ago that its mineable ore reserves break down into sulphides 43%, mixed 40%, and oxides 17%. Official reserves, according to the Russian classification, amount to 1,310.8 million tonnes of ore containing 19.7 million tonnes of copper (average grade 1.51%) and 11,900 tonnes of silver (average grade 9.6 g/t). International studies, which include BHP and Bateman contributions, estimate Udokan reserves at 27 million tonnes of copper. At current copper prices, this is a feast worth more than $170 billion, plus another $7 billion for the silver.

Chita region officials have told Mineweb the terms of a contest to award the Udokan mining licence have now been finalized with the federal Ministry of Natural Resources, and these should be published tomorrow. Bidders will then have 90 days to qualify and lodge their bids. An unrefundable deposit to qualify has been fixed at Rb4.5 billion ($191 million). A minimum investment of $1.6 billion must be invested in the mine, and a production threshold has been fixed at 187,000 tonnes per annum; that represents 15% of current Russian copper output.

The bar has also been set to exclude foreign copper miners, BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Kazakhmys, the Chileans, and the Chinese. Udokan's reserves are so large, they are classified as a national strategic reserve, according to new legislation that has passed the State Duma, but has yet to be signed into law by President Vladimir Putin. Putin has less than a month to complete his term, however, before he moves to the prime ministry, and Dmitri Medvedev is inaugurated the new president.

The haste with which Udokan is being offered indicates that someone wants to lock in the contest, and the outcome, before the reshuffle of government positions begins. But foreign miners are excluded, not by the new legislation, but by the informal process that has been adopted for awarding the mining licence. According to the regional government sources, the mining right will not be auctioned in open bidding. Instead, the federal and regional governments have agreed to a silent tender. That's a process by which bidders submit their proposals in sealed envelopes to a closed-door commission of government officials, who will then review them, before deciding their selection of the winner. The scheme is a front. The award is decided by the Kremlin.

This is also a formula for an insider with considerable political clout to overcome a bidder with a lot of cash. It was a formula tried, but not accepted by the government, in the March contest for the award of potash licences at Verkhekamskoye (see Mineweb, March 20). The outcome there and then was an auction, with the result that the cash bidding went too high for the participants. The commission formula for Verkhnekamskoye was favoured by the state metals and mining conglomerate called Russian Technologies, formerly known as Rosoboronexport, and run by Sergei Chemezov. Sources close to Chemezov, and the Chita governor, believe he favoured the commission formula for Udokan, because he aims to win.

Chemezov has been putting together a group of mining assets that are essential to the production of the main metals consumed by Russia's defence industries. The group already owns VSMPO, Russia's titanium producer; and several specialty steel producers. It also has interests in mining local carnallite and molybdenum.

A bid by Chemezov for Udokan's copper would be a new direction for the group, but not a surprise. A source close to Chemezov told Mineweb that he will not comment on Udokan right now, but he implied that the group is preparing an announcement. Unknown for the time being is what mining company or operator Chemezov has picked for his partner.

The two major Russian copper producers have long confirmed that they are contenders for Udokan - Norilsk Nickel, controlled by Vladimir Potanin, which produced 423,000 tonnes of copper in 2007; and Urals Mining and Metallurgical Company (UMMC), controlled by Iskander Makhmudov, whose copper output last year was 354,000 tonnes (2006).


It is conceivable that Chemezov and Potanin have struck a deal. Officially, Norilsk Nickel has said in the past it is a contender, but now it is saying nothing. Unofficially, Norilsk Nickel is not denying reports in the Russian press that it has decided to drop out of the contest.

One of Norilsk Nickel's reasons is that the cost of Udokan is too high to finance, since controlling shareholder Potanin is now obliged to scrape together every rouble he can find to buy off co-shareholder, Mikhail Prokhorov. Another of Potanin's reasons is reportedly that he has been told the Kremlin favours a single bid, and a single outcome - that's Makhmudov. A third reason is that, with comfortable copper reserves to prevent a significant drop in its copper business, Norilsk Nickel's expansion strategy is better aimed now towards iron-ore, in its takeover of the Metalloinvest assets Makhmudov, who declined to speak directly to Mineweb this week, has never been a popular figure politically, at least not in Moscow. But acknowledging that this is now a political contest, Makhmudov's company has selected the Russian Railways Company (RZD) chief, Vladimir Yakunin, as its lobbyist for the licence. In a calculated press leak early in the week, RZD confirmed it has joined a consortium to bid for Udokan with Makhmudov, and Vnesheconombank, the state debt banker, pension fund manager, and development financier.

RZD will contribute a partly built railway link to the neighboring Chineiskoye deposit and will be responsible for infrastructure development to the remote Udokan site, Yakunin's spokesman said.

Makhmudov's UMMC group needs to win more keenly than Norilsk Nickel, for the latter has substantially more reserves (up to 26 million tonnes of estimated reserves and resources) to sustain its refinery output. UMMC is reluctant to disclose how much copper ore the group is mining annually. The number is sensitive, because UMMC has admitted it is running out of ore sources to keep feeding its smelters, most of which are located in central Russia.

Udokan has been the focus of Russian and international mining interest for more than a decade. First identified by Soviet geologists before the end of the Soviet Union, the deposit's size has encouraged a variety of small entrepreneurs to speculate on its development. In 1992 BHP lost a bid for the right to do a feasibility study at Udokan as a preliminary to deciding whether to go ahead with a mine. The Australian major lost out to the Arter Group, a group of Russian companies headed by a small entrepreneur from Chita, Andrei Chuguyevsky. He won the mining licence in January 1993. Chuguyevsky's foreign partners, however, failed to provide the promised financing, and the Australian Stock Exchange in Sydney intervened to suspend trading in the shares of a company claiming to hold a stake in the deposit. Chuguyevsky then offered participation in the project to Anglo American and Bateman. Eight years later, Chuguyevsky lost the licence for lack of investment in the project. Chuguyevsky did financially better out of De Beers, and was last heard of investing in hotels in Morocco.
reference:
UMMC is a diversified holding with aggregate assets of more than 40 enterprises located in 11 Russian regions. Currently, the company is ranked 17th among the 400 largest companies of Russia in terms of sales volume. Gains for 2006 are RUR 197.0 billion. The company is ranked 2nd among the producers of refined copper in Russia (40% output of the Russian cathode copper); 25% of domestic market of rolling the non-ferrous metals; more than 50% of the European market of copper powder.

One of many in the pipeline ...............Company Announcements Office 8 May 2008
Australian Stock Exchange Limited
By: e-lodgement (ASX code: ACE)
THAI SALES ORDER FOR $500,000
Advanced Engine Components Limited (“ACE”) is pleased to announce an order to build
and deliver compressed natural gas (“CNG”) engines, with a sales value of $500,000, to
the Union Bus Service Company of Thailand (“Union Bus”).
The engines will be purchased and on sold by the Monika/ACE Thai joint venture (“JV”).
ACE has a 21% interest in the JV (refer ACE’s ASX announcement of 11 July 2007). As
well as an interest in the JV profits, ACE installs the ACE natural gas vehicle systems
(“NGVS”) on the selected Chinese base engines and sells the completed CNG engines to
the JV.
ACE has sold 172 natural gas (“NG”) engines into Thailand, through the JV, since the JV’s
inception in June 2007. Of the 172 engines sold into Thailand, 97 were delivered pre 31
March 2008 and the balance, including the current order from Union Bus, will be delivered
before 30 June 2008.
The JV also supplies Union Bus with additional components such as CNG cylinders;
assists with the engine installation and re-powering of the buses; assists with
commissioning; and trains Union Bus employees on future maintenance and servicing
requirements.
The Thai Government and PTT Public Company Ltd (“PTT”), Thailand’s largest energy
provider, are very supportive in encouraging Thai bus and truck operators to convert from
diesel to NG. This support includes capping the NG price at 50% of the price of diesel
(currently 30%); PTT building a nationwide network of CNG refuelling stations; PTT offering
to build CNG refuelling facilities at operators depots if they operate more than 200 NG
vehicles; and low interest loans to promote conversions.
Less than 2,000 of Thailand’s 800,000 heavy duty vehicles currently operate on NG. PTT
has forecast Thailand’s growth in NG vehicles will be at least 50% pa over the next five
years.
With Government initiatives, abundant natural gas reserves (approximately 38.24
TCF), expanding NG refuelling infrastructure and the forecast growth in NG
vehicles, Thailand is one of ACE’s most important markets. As well as current
ACE NG engine sales to Thailand there is significant potential, for further growth
in Thai sales revenues, both immediately and long term.

Good news to wake up to .................................Zinc Price May Jump More Than 50% in Five Years, Macquarie Says

By Feiwen Rong

May 5 (Bloomberg) -- Refined zinc prices may climb by more than 50 percent in the next five years as growth in mine supply slows and leads to a global shortage of the metal used to galvanize steel, Macquarie Group Ltd. said.

London Metal Exchange zinc for immediate delivery may average $1.50 a pound ($3,307 a metric ton) in 2013, according to a report today by the bank's London-based analysts led by Jim Lennon. That's 25 percent more than previously forecast, and compares with the May 2 settlement price of $2,193.50 a ton.

Rapid supply growth in the near term notwithstanding, ``lower zinc prices and difficulty in securing financing are likely to limit zinc mine production growth in the longer-term, from 2010 onwards,'' Macquarie said. There could be a shortage of refined zinc by 2011 ``which could become extremely large by 2012,'' it said.

LME aluminum for immediate delivery may rise to $1.40 a pound ($3,086 a ton) in 2012, up 17 percent from an earlier forecast, the report said. The metal, used in automobiles, planes and beverage cans, settled at $2,876.50 on May 2.

There's no real tightness for aluminum this year despite power-related production problems in China and South Africa, the Macquarie report said.

``As a result of rising cash operating costs in China and rising capital expenditure costs globally, we have raised our long-term aluminum price,'' it added.

Ferrochrome Forecast

Power problems in early 2008 in South Africa, where up to 45 percent of global ferrochrome is produced, will continue to boost prices for the ingredient used in stainless steel for rust- proofing, the report said.

Ferrochrome may average $2.82 a pound next year, 80 percent higher than the bank's previous forecast, because of production cuts amid the power shortage in South Africa, the report said. Prices will average $2.033 a pound this year, 25 percent higher than the previous forecast of $1.625.

Ferrochrome producers in South Africa have been forced to reduce output to around 85 percent of capacity, cutting about 300,000 tons from the country's expected supply in 2008.

MSB has recently released two items that continue to confirm the
long-term potential of the business: positive results of its spinal
fusion trial; and good results of its osteoarthritis of the knee trial.
Buy maintained.
MSB to accelerate Phase II spinal fusion trial..
Recently, MSB announced that it would accelerate its clinical trial timetable, with the
aim of commencing a Phase III clinical trial by mid-CY09. This is because no adverse
effects have been noted in the five months of follow-up of the patients within this
spinal fusion trial. A successful accelerated trial program should lead to an earlierthan-
expected US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) submission process for a
spinal intervertebral fusion product, which includes MSB's allogeneic stem cells.
Positive result of osteoarthritis trial
MSB's allogeneic cells were safe and effective over a wide range of doses tested at
three, six and 12 months against osteoarthritis of the knee. The dose which showed
maximal effectiveness and superiority over hyaluronic acid alone in protecting
cartilage at three months continued to show superiority for between six and 12
months. On the basis of these results, Mesoblast will proceed to commence its Phase
II clinical trial program for cartilage protection in patients with osteoarthritis of the
knee......Price

Hi Carneius , ACE has gone up 100% since I last posted, they have dozens of trials world wide and contracts are now being inked in . One I certainly like. COMMERCIAL READY GRANT FROM AUSTRALIAN GOVT. ..................................... As of 1 January 2008 all new heavy duty vehicles in Australia must comply with Euro 4
emission standards. To comply, Isuzu has released a new range of 295 and 510hp, Euro
4, diesel powered trucks.
ACE’s current development programme will enable the 295 and 510hp Isuzu vehicle
operators to convert their diesel engines to CNG or LNG engines through the incorporation
of ACE’s NGVS. Once converted, the vehicles operating on NG will comply with Euro 4
emission standards and maintain the same performance as the diesel equivalent. Isuzu has approximately 40% of Australia’s urban return-to-base truck market. The Isuzu
295hp vehicles, used for refuse collection, concrete delivery, urban delivery and general
transport, represent approximately 17% of Australia’s total truck market.
The 510hp engine, for the longer-haul intercity and interstate truck and trailer-unit market,
is a relatively new but significant market for Isuzu. .................Cheers

Zinc will play catchup with this type of activity ..........................

Steel prices rise for fourth week on back of strong demand
Updated: 2008-04-28 09:06


Domestic steel prices have been rising for the fourth week in China, boosted by growing demand, analysts said.


According to China Iron and Steel Association (CISA), domestic steel prices surged by almost 20 percent in the first quarter. The domestic steel price index rose to a record high of 142.31 points in March, up 32.51 points, or 29.61 percent from the same period last year.


The price was pushed up by high demand on the domestic market, where growth in steel output remained comparatively slow, said the CISA.


A rise in fuel prices that resulted in higher production cost also contributed to surging steel prices, said the CISA.


Analysts said there was still a price gap of about 100 to 200 U.S. dollars per tonne between domestic and international markets, which would continue to be at play, and push up the domestic steel prices in the near future...............
Over half of all zinc currently consumed is used for galvanising steel, which is a highly cost-effective and environmentally friendly method of protecting steel against corrosion.

Nice figures projected for 2008/9 fin. year also MLX appears to have many irons in the fire ............................ The revised Renison Tin Concentrator flow-sheet has been upgraded to include new technology and the
flow-sheet customised to the planned blended ore types. In addition a copper circuit has been added to
enable the generation of a copper co-product.
The Renison Project is expected to produce approximately 8,500 tonnes of tin and 1,200 tonnes of copper
metal in the 2008-2009 financial year at a cash operating costs (after copper credits) of A$8,500 per tonne of
tin and is expected to operate near these parameters on a steady state basis going forward. At the current
spot tin price (A$25,000) a margin of A$16,500 above operating costs exists.
The re-commencement of production is on-track to commence with a re-commissioning phase in mid-June
and a build up to full capacity in the first quarter of the 2008-2009 financial year. Further it comes with a
backdrop of unprecedented tin consumption growth and supply-side uncertainty that has seen the
benchmark LME spot cash tin price recently reached a peak of US$24,600 per tonne (approx. A$26,000).
Spot Tin prices have now averaged above US$17,000/t (A$19,600) for the last six months compared to a low
of US$5850/t when Renison was placed on care & maintenance in October 2005.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------TIN which has been the market darling for many weeks due to supply concerns born
from Indonesia, lost $598 to rest at $23,300/t. Still, the price remained firm underpinned by
an illiquid market and tight supply. Tin stocks dropped a further 20 mt Wednesday to settle at 7805 mt.

Here is about where we are at.........• The United States Patent and Trade Mark Office (USPTO) granted
a key patent which delivers to both Mesoblast and Angioblast a
major commercial advantage and offers long term protection for
the platform technology; the patent ensures that only Mesoblast
and Angioblast can commercialise our proprietary adult stem
cells, termed Mesenchymal Precursor Cells, in the US, the world’s
largest market for regenerative medicines Completion of patient enrolment in both pilot clinical trials utilising autologous
(or patient’s own) stem cells for non-healing, long bone fractures and heart
failure accompanying coronary artery disease; no adverse events related to
cell implantation were reported in any of the 16 patients implanted across
both pilot trials.
• In the pilot clinical trial at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, each of the first five
patients suffering from non-healing, long bone fractures who have completed
follow-up have demonstrated complete bony union.
• In the pilot heart failure trial at John Hunter Hospital in New
South Wales, heart muscle recovery was seen in all six patients
within three months of cell implantation, as defined in either
symptoms of heart failure or in heart function.
• Two Investigational New Drug (IND) submissions were each
cleared by the FDA within 30 days of submission, to begin Phase
2 clinical trials of our allogeneic, or 'off-the-shelf', adult stem cells
for spinal fusion and for heart attacks in major US medical
centers.
• Preclinical trials have shown that Mesoblast’s adult stem cells
injected into the knee joints of animals with osteoarthritis
resulted in cartilage protection and prevention of disease
progression; these results expand the company’s commercial
opportunities into the treatment of cartilage diseases such as
osteoarthritis........ Cheers holders

OTHER APPLICATIONS FOR ZINC USE ARE WELL ADVANCED .............. Zinc Energy Storage Technology Consortium (ZESTec)
ZESTec promotes the application and market development for all types of zinc based energy storage systems for a range of end uses from automotive to portable power, for consumer and business use.

Zinc based energy systems have tremendous advantages: High specific energy, recyclable, safe use, zero emissions and local supply. Performance, market and economic factors are creating opportunities for these systems. The time has come for zinc energy systems.

In addition to priority research, including life cycle analysis, the Consortium will develop generic technical and
marketing tools such as brochures, a website and materials for presentation.

Current membership of the ZESTec consortium includes zinc energy system manufacturers (eVionyx, PowerAir, PowerZinc, S.C.P.S.) and zinc producers (Grillo, Industrias Peñoles, TeckCominco, Umicore, Xstrata and Zinifex). New members are welcome. The activities of the consortium are being coordinated through the International Zinc Association...........................


ZINC AND CROPS

Zinc is essential for the normal healthy growth and reproduction of plants, animals and humans. When the supply of zinc to plants is inadequate, crop yields are reduced and the quality of crop products is often impaired.

Zinc is required in small but critical concentrations to allow several key plant physiological pathways to function normally. These pathways have important roles in:

Photosyhthesis and sugar formation
Protein synthesis
Fertility and seed production
Growth regulation
Defense against disease.
Where zinc is deficient these physiological functions will be impaired and the health and productivity of the plants will be adversely affected, resulting in lower yields (or even crop failure) and in poorer quality crop products.

Very many plant species are affected by zinc deficiency on a wide range of soil types in most agricultural regions of the world. The major staple crops (rice, wheat, maize and sorghum) are all affected by deficiency together with many different fruit, vegetables and other types of crops including cotton and flax.

Yield losses of 40% or more can have a major economic impact on the farmer due to the reduced income. The economic impact is even higher when expensive inputs such as seeds, fertilizers, agricultural chemicals and irrigation water are involved. In developing countries, the cost from significant shortfalls in food production can also be considerable because increased imports of grains will often be required to make up this shortfall.

Zinc deficiency can be identified by soil testing or the analysis of the crop plants (usually leaves) and can be easily corrected by treating the deficient soils and crops with zinc fertilizers.

Cheers

Iraq war wounded could use stem cells to regrow lost limbs, say Pentagon scientists
Last updated at 11:05am on 18th April 2008

Comments


Stem cells: Soldiers could regrow limbs

Pentagon scientists are developing ways to help wounded soldiers regenerate skin, muscle and even limbs from their own stem cells, it emerged today.


The U.S. Army's surgeon general said he envisions the day when adult stem cells will be harvested before a soldier goes into the battle and then used to regrow new limbs within days of suffering a combat wound.

"The new institute will work to develop techniques that will help to make our soldiers whole again," said Lieutenant General Eric Schoomaker, the army surgeon general.

"We'll use the soldiers' own stem cells to repair nerve damage, to re-grow muscles and tendons, to repair burn wounds, and to help them heal without scarring," he said.

Techniques to salvage and reconstruct damaged limbs, hands, fingers, ears and noses, and reconstruct damaged craniums will also be developed, he said.

The new Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine will fund and focus the research efforts of two consortia of universities and hospital research centers.

One is led by Wake Forest University and the University of Pittsburgh, and the other by Rutgers University and the Cleveland Clinic.

The Pentagon will provide 85 million dollars over five years; members of the consortia will put up another 80 million dollars; and another 100 million dollars will come from grants through the National Institutes of Health.

"As far as we know, this is the largest US government-funded research consortium in the field of regenerative medicine," said Schoomaker.

"Not only that, we're bringing together a dream team of some of the greatest minds in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, some represented here with us today," he said.

Among them is Dr. Tony Atala of Wake Forest University, a pioneer in the field who has grown bladders from adult stem cells.

"All the parts of your body, tissues and organs, have a natural repository of cells that are ready to replicate when an injury occurs," Atala said. ( not according to Johnny Bobbit)

"And some of the strategies that are used are to take some of those cells out of the body, just with a very small piece of tissue.

"And then you can tease the cells apart, those specific cells that have that potential. Then you grow those outside the body in large quantities," he said.

The process takes about four to eight weeks, he said.

The living cells can then be painted over a scaffolding made of biodegradable material and shaped in the form of a nose or ear, and attached to the face.

As the cells grow, the material is absorbed by the body, and the new nose is formed.

The initial projects are likely to be modest -- extending a severed finger in one case, and regrowing a destroyed muscle in another man's thigh.

But officials said they hope the new techniques can be used to regrow the skin of burn victims and replace ears or noses, and eventually more complex challenges like limbs.

Schoomaker says the new technologies promise to revolutionize military medicine.

"We are the source of our own regeneration, with very low risk, -- and correct me if I'm wrong -- for example, conversion into cancers," he said, referring the higher risk of cancer in more primitive stem cells.

A piece of this would suffice Dreamer ..........................................Tougher environmental laws may cost Xstrata $100m
Posted Wed Apr 9, 2008 11:00am AEST


The Minister for Sustainability says mining giant Xstrata has indicated it may need to spend $100 million to meet new state legislation for mines.

Nine of Queensland's largest mines will have to meet stricter environmental standards under the new laws, while the rest of the state's operations have been subject to them for several years.

Andrew McNamara says he expects the bill to be passed within weeks.

"I expect on the advice given to me that Xstrata will need to spend something in the vicinity of $100 million in improving their technology to bring the standard of the mine at Mount Isa up to meet the standards of the Environmental Protection Act," he said.

"That's money that now needs to be spent and to their credit they acknowledge that as well."

Miner faces lead law suitsFont Size: Decrease Increase Print Page: Print Michael McKenna | April 11, 2008
A SERIES of law suits is looming against Swiss mining giant Xstrata after blood tests around its Mount Isa operations revealed widespread lead poisoning among the children of the central Queensland town.

The legal action over the alleged metal contamination in the Queensland mining capital comes ahead of the release next month of a Queensland Health report that is understood to show dangerously high levels of lead in more than 10 per cent of the town's children.

Ordered in late 2006 after The Australian revealed new evidence of metal contamination of soils and water, the study shows at least 45 children have lead blood levels that could damage intellectual and behavioural development.

The Queensland Government has already moved to repeal exemptions to environmental standards granted to the Mount Isa hardrock mine and smelters by the Bjelke-Petersen government.

A test case involving mother Daphne Hare, on behalf of her six-year-old daughter, Stella, is now being prepared by leading lawyers Slater & Gordon.

For Ms Hare, the damages claim - the first of several being prepared over metal contamination in and around Mount Isa - is aimed at stopping an alleged "cover-up" of the cause of ill health and developmental problems suffered by her only child and others who have grown up in the shadow of the mine.

Last week, a toxicology report, from one of the most respected laboratories in the US, confirmed the worst.

Stella - who suffers learning and behavioural problems and had a melanoma removed from her leg this year - recorded dangerously high levels of lead in her body, as well as high levels of more than 10 other metals.

According to the report, her blood lead levels over a three-month period averaged 17micrograms per decilitre (one-tenth of a litre). Studies in Australia and the US have linked blood levels of 10 micrograms per decilitre to intellectual and behaviour difficulties in youngsters.

Body: Queensland Health screening has found 45 children testing above 10 micrograms, with nine above 15, two above 20 and one registering 31.5.

The legal action by Ms Hare and lawyer Damian Scattini, of Slater & Gordon, is the culmination of a debate over the health impact of the mine and the town's copper and lead smelters that has raged in recent years.

Independent studies have indicated widespread heavy metal contamination, continuing environmental standards exemptions, and a failure to test the soil and local water since 1990.

Ms Hare said the legal action was needed to reveal the truth about the dangers facing the town's children. "I know I am not going to be popular, but there is so little awareness, so little information," she said. "I have a child that has learning and behavioural problems and I will do anything to protect her and the other kids."

In September 2006, Queensland Health ordered the blood screening of 400 of Mount Isa's children after a story in The Australian raised concerns about lead poisoning. It is finalising the report ahead of a public forum in Mount Isa next month.

The Queensland Government last month announced it was repealing special status granted to some mines - including Mount Isa - by the Bjelke-Petersen government that exempted them from having to operate under the environmental standards that apply to 1200 other mines in the state.

A spokeswoman for Xstrata yesterday said she was unaware of the looming legal action but stressed that the mining company had reduced its emissions.

"Xstrata Mount Isa Mines is not aware of any case pending at this time, however, the health of our community and employees is Xstrata's number one priority," she said.

Mr Scattini last night said the legal action was intended to ensure Xstrata bore the cost of its"toxic mess and not the families and future generations of Mount Isa". "Xstrata is heavily subsidised by the people of Queensland for the profits of its shareholders in Switzerland," he said. "In return, they force the children of Mount Isa to eat, drink, breathe, bathe and play in the toxic waste that Xstrata creates but won't pay to clean up."----------------------------------- Opportunity Knocks

How Opes won its rivals' clientsFont Size: Decrease Increase Print Page: Print Glenda Korporaal | April 04, 2008
THE failed Opes Prime built up its business by aggressively courting stockbrokers with high commissions to encourage their clients to give them business.

Documents obtained by The Australian show that brokers were offered trailing commission of 0.75 per cent by Opes Prime to encourage their clients to hand over their shares to Opes Prime as security for loans to buy more shares.

This is much higher than the commissions paid to brokers by conventional margin loan operations such as Leveraged Equities, which begin at 0.25 per cent and rise to about 0.65 per cent for books of more than $10 million.

Brokers with clients who held shares in small companies, particularly Perth-based mining companies, were also targeted, with the clients being offered loans to buy shares that conventional margin lenders would have refused to finance.

An extra twist is that Opes Prime also directly targeted directors of small companies, offering them the finance to keep buying more of their own shares, broking sources said yesterday.

Many ran companies that were well outside the the ASX 100 list.

But unlike conventional margin lenders, Opes Prime became the owner of its clients' shares which it put into a collective pool.

Opes Prime sales people boasted that they would also lend against overseas shares and were prepared to "short" any stock on the ASX.

Opes also took some broker clients to the Australian Open tennis in Melbourne in January.

Broking sources said Opes Prime's sales pitch grew more aggressive in recent months as the share market downturn made it difficult to get loans to buy shares of small to medium capitalisation companies.

But they said the major attraction for their clients was not the higher commissions, but the ability to get the finance to allow the purchase of shares in small to medium sized companies which they could not get elsewhere.

"I had one client who had a lot of shares in a medium-sized company," said one broker.

"Leveraged Equities moved their loan-to-valuation ratio from 50 per cent to 30 per cent because they didn't want to have a significant exposure to this company.

"Opes would have given the client the money to be able to take up all of the rights issue."

Many investors now caught up in the collapse of Opes Prime have only just become Opes clients.

They have just handed over a large number of their own shares to Opes -- which are now out of its control -- but have only borrowed a small amount against them before its collapse last week. ..............................................................................................

It appears you can not take director buying into account until this mess is over .... Cheers

The positive news with the Opes share lending/forced selling is , it has enabled INL investors to enter or top up on low prices than expected , as I believe the 300/500k seller over the last few weeks was connected to one of the 4 broker houses involved in the Opes Saga...Now with INL announcements imminent and maybe the exposure of the debacle, timing for upward advancement could be spot on....

WHO U GONNA CALL ....................................DuPont to appeal zinc smelter class action suit

BOSTON, Feb. 26, 2008 (Thomson Financial delivered by Newstex) -- E.I. DuPont (NYSE:DD PRB) (NYSE:DD PRA) (NYSE:DD) De Nemours & Co. (DuPont) said Tuesday it is 'disappointed' with the rulings in a class-action pollution case and said it will appeal to the State Supreme Court of West Virginia.

'DuPont will appeal this case, including the recent rulings and the earlier jury verdicts. We believe there were numerous errors, both during and after trial, that deprived the company of a fair outcome in this case,' DuPont said. 'We are hopeful that the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia will grant review.'
On Monday, a circuit judge upheld a $196.2 million punitive damages award against DuPont in a class-action pollution case brought by people who claimed they were sickened by contamination from a former zinc smelting plant in the small community of Spelter, W. Va., the Associated Press reported.

Harrison County Circuit Court Chief Judge Thomas A. Bedell also ordered DuPont to set aside nearly $130 million for a medical monitoring plan, the news agency said.
The jury in the case required DuPont to provide medical monitoring for 40 years to people who were exposed to arsenic, cadmium and lead from a former zinc-smelting plant in Spelter.

DuPont said the scientific evidence presented both at trial and in the post-trail proceedings doesn't warrant medical monitoring. The company added that the court erred in estimating the cost of the medical monitoring program at $130 million.

In 2004, ten residents of Spelter sued DuPont, claiming the company 'deliberately misled them about health risks from the pollution and delayed a site cleanup for as long as possible to maximize profits,' the Associated Press added.

Shares of DuPont slipped 62 cents to $46.66. ............................ Cheers ....

QUOTE (juke @ Sunday 24/02/08 12:07am)

Todays Australian ......... ore brings Chinese to Cape Lambert Font Size: Decrease Increase Print Page: Print Kevin Andrusiak | February 25, 2008
CHINESE interests are this week expected to step up their investments in the booming Australian iron ore industry, partnering junior iron ore hopeful Cape Lambert in what is tipped to be a multi-million-dollar deal.

Despite increasing scrutiny from Canberra over foreign investment on the Australian resources landscape, giant Chinese steel company Metallurgical Group Corp is believed to be the front-runner to partner Cape Lambert at its namesake iron ore project in the West Australian Pilbara.

Cape Lambert went into a trading halt on Friday with market speculation now centred on an announcement that Metallurgical will invest around $300 million in the project. The deal would also see Metallurgical fund construction of a processing plant at the Cape Lambert project.

Metallurgical is a big, state-owned conglomerate that has been at the forefront of building additional steel-making capacity in China and can boast financial interests in five continents.

Metallurgical is also partnered with Citic at the nearby Sino Iron iron ore project, which is on ground that was once owned by well-known entrepreneur Clive Palmer.

Interest in investing in Cape Lambert's project, on the Pilbara coast near Karratha, has come from a number of Chinese parties, but Metallurgical is now considered the front-runner for a joint venture deal.

Cape Lambert executive director Tony Sage was in China last week and was believed to have met senior Metallurgical representatives after they showed more interest in the project following release of test work data by Cape Lambert.

Earlier in the month Cape Lambert said studies by an international research centre confirmed much of the silica in a concentrate sample could be removed without much alteration to the iron units.

The testwork showed that the silica levels could be nearly halved.

Following the research, the concentrate assayed 66.4 per cent iron and 4.8 per cent silica, which made it suitable to be considered by steel mills as blast furnace pellet feed.

The reverse flotation test was conducted in Germany, and Cape Lambert said at the time it was confident further reductions in silica could be achieved through "test work optimisation".

"I hope these results put to bed any doubts the market may have about Cape Lambert's ability to produce a saleable final concentrate at less than 5per cent silica," company chairman Ian Burston said at the time.

Cape Lambert is also on track to give an improved resource estimate for the project in June with the current resource standing at 1.56 billion tonnes grading 31.2 per cent iron.

The company hopes to prove up enough reserves at its flagship project for a 15 million tonne a year operation for at least a 20-year mine life.

Most of the resource is for magnetite product, which requires additional processing to bring it into line with haematite ore grades.

Cape Lambert is expected to come out of its trading halt by tomorrow........................China Metallurgical Group Corporation is a company with extensive experience in constructing large-scale magnetite iron ore projects around the world. MCC has been engaged in engineering, procurement and construction, for major projects in China, Brazil, Iran and Venezuela. The contract awarded to MCC for the Sino Iron project includes construction of processing infrastructure incorporating primary crushers, pellet plant, magnetite concentrator and support infrastructure including access roads, construction and accommodation villiages .......... Good luck holders

Always thought along them lines Reginald, If you look at the 60 day charts you will clearly see the change of trend for pb ni zn al and cu , so my guess is we are entering the next leg of this bonanza .....Lawrence sees no end to this comodities boom .. ... Lawrence mentions why he makes these preditions quote...............................In a single decade, China has gone from obscurity to become the fourth largest economy in the world. India and most of Southeast Asia are also booming. Three billion people are modernizing at the same time. It will not stop any time soon.

There has never been anything like this in history. There is no precedent for the economic forecasters. No pattern to plug into a computer model. ...........Cheers

THE REALITIES OF THIS SECULAR BULL MARKET IN COMMODITIES ........ BY LAWRENCE ROULSTON...... The big question on everybody’s minds at this moment is: Where are we in the commodity cycle?

Everybody connected to the mining industry thinks of the industry as always going in cycles of boom and bust. We have now had seven years of boom. For that reason, some people are saying that we have reached the end of this cycle.

The issue that is most on the minds of every investor at this moment is the state of the U. S economy. The fear is that the economy will go into recession and that will slow down the whole world, resulting in metal prices plummeting.

We have all heard the word recession so often that people believe it is real. The popular press repeatedly reports that someone or other has warned that the economy might go into recession. As a result of that media blitz, 60% of Americans think that their country is presently in a recession.

The reality is that the American economy is still growing. No doubt, growth is slower than everybody would like - 2% a year rather than 3% are 4%, like people became accustomed to.

But, economic activity in the United States is still expanding and is forecast to continue to expand. The economic forecasters best suited to make predictions continue to project positive growth. Slower, but nonetheless positive growth. One example is the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Their comprehensive projection, published in December, shows U.S. growth this year at 2.0%, down from 2.2% last year.

I know, there is an argument that says that the figures are being fudged, and there really isn’t growth.

In terms of metal prices, it doesn’t really matter whether the U.S. economy expands by a couple of percent or declines by a couple of percent. The rest of the world is continuing to grow. In fact, much of the rest of the world is booming, and is forecast to continue to boom.

The OECD report forecasts that growth in China will slow to ONLY 10.8%, slightly less than last year. China is now the fourth largest economy in the world.

Some analysts are still naïve enough to believe that the strength in the Chinese economy is based simply on making stuff to export to the United States. Therefore, the projected slowdown in the United States would cause the Chinese economy to crash.

Anybody who has spent any time in China will realize how ludicrous that belief really is. The professional forecasters have factored in the slowdown in the American economy and still project the Chinese economy to grow at 10.8% this year. China is by far the world’s largest consumer of metals.

In a single decade, China has gone from obscurity to become the fourth largest economy in the world. India and most of Southeast Asia are also booming. Three billion people are modernizing at the same time. It will not stop any time soon.

There has never been anything like this in history. There is no precedent for the economic forecasters. No pattern to plug into a computer model.

Yesterday, Frank Holmes gave a very revealing presentation in which he showed figures for the amount being spent on infrastructure around the world. There are hundreds of billions of dollars being spent on infrastructure. China and India are at the forefront. The rest of Asia is also spending. Oil exporting countries, awash in cash, are building roads and ports and new cities. Russia and parts of Latin America are booming. (See the presentation: Infrastructure: A Global Opportunity at www.usfunds.com )

So far, we have just seen the first wave – the build up of infrastructure. That process is continuing, perhaps even accelerating. Added on top of the infrastructure wave is the beginning of a second wave – hundreds of millions of wealthy consumers who are just beginning the life-long process of accumulating material possessions.

Demand for metals is rising steadily as more and more of the world enters the modern era. The rise in metal demand is likely to accelerate as growth in infrastructure continues and at the same time the number of consumers in the world is soaring.

Rising demand for metals over the past few years has pushed the metal prices higher by multiples ranging from three times to more than 10 times their levels at the start of this decade.

Economic theory would hold that higher metal prices would lead to reduced demand. The reality is that every pound of metal that the mining industry can deliver is being consumed.

Now, let’s look at what is happening on the supply side of the mining industry. Economic theory holds that higher prices will lead to investment by the industry and that will increase production. In previous cycles, that is exactly what happened.

Reality shows that economic theory is half right in this cycle. Mining companies have invested enormous amounts – tens of billions of dollars. Yet, production has barely increased.

Looking closely at what has actually happened in the industry, it is clear why production is flat. Almost all of the new investment has been directed to buying existing production.

Companies have grown their production capacity by buying other companies. Noranda was bought by Falconbridge, which was then bought by Xstrata. Inco was bought by CVRD. Alcan was bought by Rio Tinto. BHP is now trying to buy Rio Tinto. CVRD is now trying to buy Xstrata. And on and on throughout the mining industry.

Those corporate takeovers don’t create even a single new pound of production capacity. Investment in new mines has barely offset depletion – that is, older mines are running out of ore and are being shut down.

Let’s look at copper as an example. In 2000, the mining industry produced 15 million tonnes of copper metal. Last year, the industry produced 16 million tonnes of copper. While world economic activity was growing at 4-5% a year, production capacity grew by barely 1% a year. It is not surprising that the price of copper increased more than five-fold.

Part of the reason that the mining industry chose to buy existing mines rather than developing new ones is that they had little choice. During the down part of the metal cycle, there was little effort devoted to exploration and development. When prices began to move up, there was little in the development pipeline. In order to grow production, mining companies had to buy other mining companies.

For decades, geologists have been scouring every part of the earth’s surface. The big, high-grade metal deposits that were sticking out of the ground were found, and over the years were developed, and in many cases have now been mined out. For example, in the 1980’s, the Chilean copper belt was developed. The largest and some of highest grade copper deposits in the world were developed one after another. Not surprisingly, the copper price fell. In 2000, it reached $0.60 a pound, the lowest price, in real terms, ever.

Today, there is no Chilean copper belt waiting to be developed, or a comparable belt for the other metals. The deposits now under consideration are lower grade, more remote, deeper and in general more difficult than mines that operated in the past. There is also a great deal more political uncertainty, putting many areas of the world off limits.

Several years into this cycle, there are projects ready to go into development. Yet, the industry is still not doing much to develop new mines. The reason is that there is still an unrealistic view of the future.

The bankers and bean counters and analysts have adopted an entirely unrealistic view of the future of the metal industry. That view has stopped most projects from going ahead.

For example, in forecasting prices, analysts take the average metal prices over the past couple of decades and project that average a couple of decades into the future.

There are a couple of fundamental fallacies in that approach. First, the figures are all measured in simple U.S. dollar terms. Yet, the value of the dollar has greatly depreciated over the past couple of decades. It is down roughly 40% against the Euro in the past five years, for example. Even if an average price from the 1980s and 1990s made sense, which it does not, at the very least, it would have to be adjusted for the declining value of dollar.

As I noted a moment ago, the low hanging fruit has been picked by the mining industry. The easy to develop and the cheap to operate deposits are gone. The financial world must come to grips with the concept that cost, and therefore metal prices, have shifted upwards in a fundamental and long term way.

In evaluating development projects, revenue is based on long term average metal prices projected 20 years into the future. Yet, capital and operating cost estimates take into account today’s prices. There is a fundamental mismatch between costs and revenue and that is extremely detrimental to the viability of projects.

Are all of those analysts really so far off base? The short answer is yes.

Here is one example. Over the past few years, the mining industry has sold metal forward. That is, they have shorted their own products – in a way that has cost shareholders billions and billions of dollars of lost profits.

If those analysts can’t get the price forecasts right for the next 6 or 12 months, how can we rely on them to forecast for 20 years into the future.Another example: Canada’s nickel industry was sold off a couple of years back based on projections of nickel at $8.00 a pound. The Swiss company Xstrata and the Brazilian company CVRD are still laughing at the Bay Street bozos who evaluated those deals for the Canadian companies.
The objective of all this economic analysis is simply to get a sense of whether demand for metals will continue to increase at a faster pace than the supply of metals. That is clearly the case. I’m not suggesting for a moment that metal prices will go higher from the present levels. I just don’t know.

But, what I can tell you with certainty is that metal prices will remain well above long term trends for many, many years, or more likely, forever. Certainly long enough for investors to make huge gains off the small companies that hold the deposits that represent the future of the mining industry.

Furthermore, the mining industry has a critical need for new metal deposits that can be developed into mines. Just to maintain the present production levels, the mining industry needs new mines each and every year. The junior companies that are finding and developing those deposits represent outstanding investment opportunities.

At some time, there will have to be a realization that the long term forecasts for metal prices don’t make any sense.

The first thing that will happen is that companies with existing production will get an immediate re-rating.

Secondly, development projects will be re-evaluated. Companies that hold large, advanced stage metal deposits could see their values multiply.

In time, the gains should be reflected throughout the exploration and development sector for companies that have credible management teams and realistic prospects of finding and developing new metal deposits.

This period of uncertainty represents a buying opportunity in a long term bull market for metals.

The Hutton family have a solid investment in this group....The demand for Barra already is well above supply and the current trend of goverments buying back commercial fishing licences will help these farmed fish companies greatly, not to mention the 3/4 of a billion Asians who are heading for "middle class status'' which includes putting meat and fish on there plates whilst this is still a spec stock Imo the hard yards MPA has done is just starting to bear fruit .. er fish sorry...

As for INL there are a few knowns in the pipeline to support and hopelfully fire up the SP such as .....Relevant authorities approval for the HRP...... economics for HRP ....The BSM connection......But I believe there may be some unknowns...... .... left field stuff... INL tend to work behind the scenes. One thing for sure they wont be sitting on thier hands waiting for opportunities to come to them ........p.s I wonder if that other eafd processing company is owned by Italians ....Cheers

Why would a bot be selling INL down in parcels of 3-5k lots and its been going all morning .....My guess is they are sitting in the 0.125 Q with some 200k buys trying to spook holders into selling into them ..... any other thoughts .....

Good work Healyn ....I believe the current price of ZN will be the average for years to come ...................... keeping in mind this section of a current article ............ Mid-2010, the market expects to see a "significant supply shortfall ... and a sustained period of high prices is likely," said Meade. "How large the supply deficit is will be determined by the ability of smaller companies to finance new mines."
'A number of the world's larger zinc operations are expected to go off line in the 2009-2012 period. If they stop producing on schedule, there will be a pretty big hole in the zinc market to fill.'
— Eric Coffin, HardRockAnalyst.com
And looking even further ahead, the zinc industry faces output obstacles.
The market will lose several major zinc mines over the next few years, including the third-largest zinc mine in the world: Zinifex's (AU:ZFX: news, chart, profile) Century mine in 2015, according to Meade. There's potentially a "large gap between forecast demand and supply opening up in 2012," he said.

Sun Oct 14, 4:12 AM
Email Story IM Story Printable View
LYON, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report related to the American industrial equipment industry is now available to its catalogue.

Battery & Fuel Cell Materials

www.reportlinker.com/p061041/PRBW-Fuel-Cell-Materials.html

If you wish to get more information on this report, then send an e-mail to Nicolas Bombourg, at nbo@reportlinker.com.

Description

US demand to grow 3.9% annually through 2011

US demand for materials used in the production of batteries and fuel cells will rise 3.9 percent per year to $3.7 billion in 2011. Gains will be driven by increasing production of high-performance battery products, especially lithium and nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) types, due to the enormous popularity of high-drain portable electronic devices. Additionally, demand for fuel cell materials will rise nearly fivefold from a small base, as fuel cell products begin to enjoy commercial success. However, gains will be limited by a less favorable outlook for more mature and outdated battery types, such as lead-acid, zinc-carbon and nickelcadmium chemistries.

Metals to stay leading material in batteries, fuel cells

Metals will continue to be the leading material type in batteries and fuel cells through 2011, accounting for about twothirds of demand. Metal prices spiked during the 2001-2006 period, spurring strong value gains for metals in batteries and fuel cells. However, advances through 2011 will be restrained by an expected moderation in metal prices and sluggish demand in the sizeable lead metal market. More rapid growth will be seen for polymers and carbon/graphite materials, which are used in fast-growing lithium and Ni-MH battery chemistries as well as fuel cells. Gains in demand for other materials will also be strong, especially fumed silica and glass fibers used in valve-regulated lead-acid batteries, as well as ceramics in solid oxide fuel cells.

Performance additives, catalysts to lead gains by function

Among functional categories for battery and fuel cell materials, most rapid gains will be for performance additive and catalyst materials, which are expected to nearly double through 2011. Growth will be driven by the ongoing need to improve battery performance and durability, as well as the surging demand for fuel cells, which use expensive platinum catalysts. Active materials are the leading functional outlet, constituting more than half of materials demand in 2006, but will experience below-average increases in demand. Battery containers and current collectors will exhibit similarly slow growth, with value gains restrained by a moderation in metal prices and increasing cost reduction efforts.

Fuel cells, primary batteries to be most rapidly growing applications

Secondary batteries accounted for nearly 70 percent of battery and fuel cell material demand in 2006, due to the enormous size of the lead-acid battery market. However, faster gains are forecast for materials in primary batteries, fueled by a robust increases in primary lithium battery shipments and continued strength in the bedrock alkaline battery market. Stellar growth is expected for fuel cell materials, rising from less than two percent of the market in 2006 to over seven percent in 2011, as products such as proton-exchange membrane fuel cells and solid oxide fuel cells achieve more substantial commercial acceptance.

Study coverage

This study presents historical demand data for 1996, 2001 and 2006, as well as forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by material type (e.g., chemicals, polymers, metals, carbon/graphite), function (e.g., active materials, current collectors, containers, performance additives, catalysts, separators) and application (primary batteries, secondary batteries, fuel cells).

The study also considers market environment factors, assesses industry structure, evaluates market share data and profiles 37 leading industry competitors including Doe Run Resources, DuPont, East Penn Manufacturing, Exide Technologies, Falconbridge, Johnson-Matthey, RSR, Sanders Lead and Thomas Steel Strip.

Another positive day ahead on the back of this news ........................................................
LONDON — Lead hit a new high in early business at the London Metal Exchange on Thursday, supported by a tight supply outlook combined with strong demand from battery makers, analysts said.

The metal has outperformed other LME contracts, and indeed most other assets, with gains of 130 per cent since the start of the year.

By 10:30 (GMT), lead for delivery in three months traded up to $3,890 (U.S.) per tonne on electronic dealing system Select, surpassing its previous peak of $3,885, which it struck on Tuesday.

Despite these high prices, users of the metal have little choice but to continue buying, analysts said.

“There is a fair way to go before they will even look at making a change,” BNP Paribas analyst David Thurtell said........................Cheers

May be the solution,..... bit more info below ......................................................................Key issue for MIS is infrastructure to get Weld Range to market. Previously MIS and Murchison Metals (MMX) were working together to build port and rail, but now they have gone their separate ways. MIS has a 1973 State Agreement which was issued to Kingstream (MIS prior to being renamed) allowing Kingstream to build rail and a port at Oakajee. However, MIS are looking to Yilgarn (Malaysian-Chinese consortium) to build the port and rail, and are confident they can transfer the State Agreement to Yilgarn. One stumbling block is that the current WA government have informed MIS that the State Agreement is not valid and that they do not have permission to build port and rail. Our take is that the government is finding it difficult to chose between the MIS-Yilgarn proposal and the Murchsion-Mitsubishi proposal. Both of which are proposing essentially the same thing, which is a port and rail system able to carry own product as well as third party.
MIS if one were to assume that it could get Weld Range up at 20Mtpa for 20 years, the NPV is c. $4.70. This rises further if one assumes that Jack Hills and Koolanooka Magnetite get up. This is basd on 2011 commissioning of Weld Range, which could be stalled if a way forward on development of the infrastructure can not be found. MIS said that it is prepared to persue arbitration to get the government to follow through on the State Agreement.

TB PATCH DIAGNOSTIC
Status: Enrollment in Peru clinical trial complete; data analysis ongoing. Additional trials in the Philippines are expected to begin in Q3 2007.

Background: The Sequella TB Patch is a point-of-care diagnostic used to diagnose active TB infection. The Patch delivers MPT64, a protein specific to all organisms that cause TB. In those with active, infectious TB, a localized immune response consisting of erythema and/or vesiculation appears 3-4 days after application to the skin.

Product Profile: The Sequella TB Patch diagnostic has the following properties:

Point-of-care Non-invasive, no needles used No sample (whole blood or sputum) collection required No laboratory processing required More specific than the existing TB skin test Results unaffected by BCG vaccination, previous TB, latent TB infection, or infection with other Mycobacteria Results available in less than four days R&D Milestones: Enrollment of over 600 patients in a six-center clinical trial in Lima, Peru is complete, and the data for this study are now being analyzed. In three earlier clinical trials enrolling 200 patients in the Philippines and South Africa, the overall specificity was 96% and the overall sensitivity for the diagnosis of active TB disease was 89%, despite marked differences in skin type, color, and disease state.

Sequella licensed the TB Patch diagnostic from the Japan BCG Laboratory and has worldwide commercialization rights excluding Japan. Sequella has developed a method of producing recombinant MPT64 that is conducive to large-scale manufacturing. Process transfer, optimization, and scale-up validation are completed.

Market Opportunity: For more information, please see our TB Patch Backgrounder.

Hope that helps .......................

I believe the INL team have planned and actioned some very positive strategies over the last twelve months, the only negative(which was not planned ) being the sp , and what is rolled out in the future should take care of that.. My belief is that the current sp is causing some of the friction towards the option proposal, along with the strike price... ...What we dont need at the moment is a dispute between share holders and INL , and between each other as shareholders...If we could look foward to the sp next Sept. we very well may see this option package was justified and a hurricane in an egg cup...... There was a lot of effort put into Jacks answer on the Q&A forum( which is one of the positives I cant think of another company to set up a Q&A) no doubt some holders were happier than others with answers and accordingly each can vote on their feelings towards the option package .. I am not saying its a great package but I am happier after reading some of the reasons behind it .....It was also stated why a director sold a parcel it was not mandatory to say that but its being open ...Cheers and hang in there ...Vin

The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"
The woman replied, "I need it to poison my husband."
The pharmacist's eyes got big and he exclaimed, "Lord, have mercy! I can't
Give you cyanide to kill your husband! That's against the law! My license!
They'll throw both of us in jail! All kinds of bad things will happen! No!
You CANNOT have any cyanide!"

A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper has cheated him out of ten
million bucks.

His bookkeeper is deaf.

That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that
a deaf bookkeeper would not hear anything that he might have to testify
about in court.

When the Godfather goes to confront the bookkeeper about his missing $10
million, he brings along his attorney, who knows sign language.

The Godfather tells the lawyer, "Ask him where the 10 million bucks he
embezzled from me is."

The attorney, using sign language, asks the bookkeeper where the money is.

The bookkeeper signs back: "I don't know what you are talking about."

The attorney tells the Godfather: "He says he doesn't know what you're
talking about."

The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to the bookkeeper's temple and
says, "Ask him again!"

The attorney signs to the bookkeeper: "He'll kill you if you don't tell him!"

The bookkeeper signs back: "OK! You win! The money is in a brown
briefcase, buried behind the shed in my cousin Enzo's backyard in Queens!"

The Godfather asks the attorney: "Well, what'd he say?"

The attorney replies: "He says you don't have the balls to pull the trigger."

Iron ore is currently in high demand, and will continue to do so for many years . There are only a handful of producers in Aust. now but even the small size companies ore will be in demand. this article from a daily Chinese business paper ...........................Steel price surge spurs scramble for iron ore

Thursday, September 06, 2007

Chinese steel prices are soaring despite a cut by the country's top mill, prompting a scramble for spot iron ore cargoes from India and pushing the raw material's prices to record highs almost every day.
This could pave the way for another major increase in 2008 iron ore term prices, to be negotiated between mills around the world and global miners such as Brazil's CVRD late this year or early next year, iron ore traders and industry officials said.

Medium-grade ore from India is now offered at prices above US$150 (HK$1,170) a tonne delivered to China - up nearly 70 percent from early this year and well above Brazilian ore prices of about US$120 to US$125.

"Under current market conditions, it is just wishful thinking to imagine we can get a lower term price in 2008 than 2007," Chen Haoran, chairman of the China Chamber of Commerce of Metals, Minerals and Chemicals Importers and Exporters said yesterday.

China's iron ore imports are likely to rise by more than 18 percent in 2007 to 386 million tonnes, estimated Zou Jian, chairman of the China Metallurgical Mines Association.

Baosteel, the largest steelmaker in China and the industry pace setter, said in August it would cut major steel product prices by 200 yuan (HK$206) a tonne in the fourth quarter from the third quarter.

"Baosteel cut prices but no other mills have followed. Everybody is increasing prices," said an iron ore trader in Beijing. "The market has gone mad ... Right now, we cannot see any signs of a slowdown." Domestic steel prices have risen as the economy roars ahead at an annual growth rate of more than 10 percent in the run-up to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

"This is a vast country. They still need a lot of steel," said an industry official in Beijing. "And it's absolutely normal for the economy to overheat before the Olympic Games."

Unabated exports of steel products are helping to support prices, despite Beijing's efforts to curb foreign sales of energy and resource-intensive goods such as steel products.

About six million tonnes of steel products were shipped out of China in August, against July's 5.94 million tonnes, with many cargoes heading for the Middle East, North Africa and South America. There might be more in September.

"There's little you can do when the price gap is as much as 30 to 40 percent. Even some domestic traders are turning to exports," said the Beijing steel industry official.

He added that the industry was diverting exports away from Europe and America, however, for fear of possible anti-dumping action.

Asked if Beijing could introduce more measures to limit exports, another steel industry official said: "It may happen later, maybe in six months, but not in the near future."

With China's 2007 crude steel output set to reach 480 million to 490 million tonnes, up from 418.78 million tonnes last year, the sector needs high- priced Indian spot iron ore cargoes.

Things are a slowly changing Danville, as this report shows may take some time but it will eventuate .......................
Europe becomes China's main trading partner

Nishika Patel

Saturday, September 01, 2007

The subprime-led slowdown in US demand for Chinese goods has been offset by growing demand in Asia and Europe - which has now taken over the United States to absorb 67 percent of the mainland's exports, according to a Hang Seng Bank report.
The report revealed that Europe took over the United States in the first half of the year to become the mainland's biggest trading partner, "picking up much of the slack generated by the slowdown in US imports." There has been much speculation about the impact of reduced US consumer spending on Chinese exports - a major driver of its rapid economic growth. But despite fears, export growth was 27.6 percent, beating Hang Seng's forecasts.

"Because of the buoyancy of economies in Asian countries, there has been a demand for raw materials and machinery goods from China.

"Eventually, because of the proximity of Asia, China will close the gap between US exports and Asian exports," Hang Seng's chief economist Vincent Kwan said.

The bank has raised 2007 full-year GDP growth forecasts for the mainland to 11.5 percent from 10.7 percent.

Along with exports, economic growth will be driven by strong domestic demand, stemming from rising household income and ample liquidity conditions, said the report. Meanwhile, Hong Kong's GDP growth - which was revised up from 5.6 percent to 6.1 percent for 2007 - will be fueled by greater domestic consumption and a stronger export relationship with the mainland in the run-up to the Olympics.

"In Hong Kong there has been an improvement in labor markets and on the trade side. Salary growth is faster, which is boosting consumer confidence and domestic demand," Kwan said.

Growth of sales to India outpacing China: BHP
24 Aug, 2007, 2233 hrs IST, AGENCIES



MELBOURNE: BHP Billiton, the world's biggest mining company, said growth in sales to India is outpacing gains in China as the southern Asian nation requires more coal and nickel to meet rising demand.

BHP is raking in higher sales from India than it did six years ago from China, which now accounts for a fifth of revenue, incoming Chief Executive Officer Marius Kloppers said here. BHP is still looking to invest in bauxite and iron ore projects in India, he said.

India's government plans to spend 450 billion dollar by 2012 to build new roads, ports and power stations and accelerate growth to 10 per cent from an average 8.6 per cent in the past four years. BHP said it has as much as 50 billion dollar of projects it could develop to feed rising demand.

"Everybody in the industry missed the Chinese growth story, and what BHP is doing now is to set themselves up for the next stage when India could go on the same growth path," said Mark Pervan, a commodity strategist in Melbourne.

"They've built the business for Chinese demand, and what they want to do with the $50 billion of projects is to prepare for the new emerging economies like India."

BHP's sales to China jumped 47 per cent in the six months ended June to $5.29 billion from a year ago. Its sales to India surged 56 per cent in the same period from a year ago to $1.14 billion, according to figures provided by BHP.

China accounted for 20.4 per cent of BHP's sales in the second half, whereas India only contributed to 4.4 per cent of sales, BHP spokeswoman Samantha Evans said.

China, the world's largest consumer of metals, will continue to want more metals and iron ore, Kloppers said. India will need energy commodities such as coal, as well as metals, he said.

purchased a few only to see the ann. 5 min later ..nevermind this is a bit of good news overnight ............... Rises on Speculation Demand Won't Slow; Copper, Zinc Gain

By Brett Foley

Aug. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Lead had its biggest gain in three weeks in London as stockpiles fell and investors judged a global credit squeeze won't hurt demand for commodities. Nickel, copper, aluminum and zinc also increased.

Lead inventories tracked by the London Metal Exchange dropped 1 percent, the exchange said today, to the lowest since March, 1990. The U.S. Federal Reserve cut its discount rate on Aug. 17, sparking speculation it will reduce interest rates later this year. BHP Billiton Ltd., the world's biggest mining company, said yesterday trouble in the credit markets was unlikely to derail a five-year rally in commodity prices.

The interest-rate cuts and comments from the Melbourne-based miner helped spur a rebound in commodities, paring declines earlier this month. The UBS Bloomberg CMCI index tracking 26 commodities has lost 5.4 percent this month and dropped to a four-month low on Aug. 16.

``BHP's comments yesterday, the possibility of interest-rate cuts in the U.S. and strong demand in China and India convinced people the extent of the sell off in metals wasn't warranted,'' Nick Moore, an analyst at ABN Amro Holding NV in London, said today by phone. ``Investors should be wary of this rally, though, as it's not based on'' metals supply and demand.

Lead for delivery in three months on the LME increased $137, or 4.6 percent, to $3,122 a metric ton as of 12:38 p.m. local time. Earlier, the metal used in car batteries climbed 5.2 percent, the biggest intraday gain since July 31.

Nice find Nash -------- Biotech benefit for knees ONCE in a blue moon a stock market announcement arrives that could impact on AFL football.

Yesterday it was biotechnology company Mesoblast which has arrived at a therapy with wide application for our great game.

As part of its research using adult stem cells, Mesoblast has found the therapy significantly protected knee cartilage.

Pre-clinical trials showed that adult stem cells injected directly into damaged knee joints was a safe treatment and significantly increased the thickness and mechanical strength of knee joint cartilage.

"The results of this trial show for the first time that our off the shelf allogeneic stem cell product is effective for the treatment and protection of osteoarthritic joint cartilage," said Mesoblast founder Professor Silviu Itescu.

Given that knee complaints are the most common joint disease and that there are no effective therapies that target cartilage, the company will now rapidly advance a new clinical program for knee osteoarthritis.

Mesoblast shares leapt like Cazaly, adding 3.6 per cent to $1.74.

Just doing some work on that myself ..found this......There are several exceptions to the 45-day rule. One of these is the small shareholder exemption which exempts shareholders from applying the 45-day rule by electing to limit the amount of total franking rebates to which they are entitled. The threshold for the full franking rebate under this rule is $5000.

Some Hydrometallurgical test work on nickel tailings By Outotec is an interesting Article ...................................................11 July 2007
Braemore Resources Plc
(“Braemore” or “the Company”)

BRAEMORE RESOURCES ACHIEVES HIGH NICKEL YIELDS FROM DIRECT ATMOSPHERIC LEACH OF LEINSTER NICKEL SULPHIDE TAILINGS
Braemore Resources Plc (AIM: BRR) today announced that high nickel yields and dissolution rates from both sulphide and non-sulphide (silicate) nickel bearing minerals have been achieved in atmospheric leach test work on representative samples of nickel sulphide tailings from the Leinster Nickel Sulphide Tailings Project in Western Australia.
These encouraging results arise from ongoing leaching tests conducted as part of laboratory scale hydrometallurgical test work conducted independently by Outotec, (formerly Outokumpu Technology), at its Research centre in Pori, Finland and by Atomaer at its Research Centre in Randburg, South Africa.
The program of hydrometallurgical test work on an atmospheric leach of nickel sulphide tailings concluded by Outotec in June achieved nickel yields and dissolution rates of 88% to 95.6% in 8 to 24 hours, with the best result of 92.9% of nickel in solution after 8 hours.
The initial program of pilot plant test work of an atmospheric leach of nickel sulphide tailings concluded by Atomaer in June achieved nickel yields and dissolution rates greater than 90% in 6 hours.
Hamish Bohannan, Managing Director of Braemore said:
“The results from both programs represent significant improvements on earlier findings from which a 72% nickel yield was chosen as the base case assumption for project feasibility studies. We expect these new results to lead to further refinements in the process flow sheet with potential for further positive impacts on project economics. For example, the more we reduce residence times for nickel dissolution while maintaining high nickel yields at 90% or greater, the more we can reduce the capacity of leach tanks, the footprint of the plant and related capital expenditure.”
Representatives from Outotec and Atomaer met in Helsinki and Pori during June to review results and to discuss areas for technical co-operation to enhance the economics of the project.
Three studies are currently in progress:
1. Continuous pilot plant test work of the atmospheric leach for optimization using Outotec technology at the Outotec Research Laboratories in July and August;
2. A techno-economic study of the Leinster Nickel Sulphide Tailings Project by Outotec, due for completion by the end of October 2007. This is based on evaluation of the preliminary results of the atmospheric leach for the Engineering Study and the Definitive Feasibility Study under the Tailings Supply Agreement with BHP Billiton
3. Further atmospheric leach pilot plant test work using Atomaer technology at Atomaer’s Research Centre for optimisation by the end of the September quarter.
The results of further test work will be reported and released to the market as and when they are available, subject to the terms of confidentiality provisions with BHP Billiton under the Tailings Supply Agreement.
Mr Robert Sinclair, CEng., MIChemE has reviewed and takes responsibility for the information and results from Outotec and Atomaer as reported in this announcement. He is a chemical engineer and member of the UK Institute of Chartered Engineers and a Registered Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council in UK of good standing. He also has not less than 5 years relevant experience in the leaching and extraction of nickel and other base metals using hydrometallurgical techniques to qualify as a qualified person in terms of the Guidance Note for Mining, Oil and Gas Companies dated March 2006 for AIM Companies of London Stock Exchange. Mr Sinclair is the General Manager of Atomaer Australia Pty Limited.

WCN has sole rights to conduct pilot plant test work and a Definitive Feasibility Study on the reclamation and processing of sulphide nickel tailings at BHP Billiton’s nickel operations at Leinster.
WCN may proceed with the development and operations of commercial plants to process sulphide nickel tailings to produce nickel products at the Leinster Nickel Operations (the Project) and subsequently at Kambalda and Mt Keith if the Definitive Feasibility Study for the Project satisfies the project criteria.
Independent consultant, CSA Australia has completed a resource statement for three of the tailings storage facilities making up the Leinster Tailings Project. A JORC compliant Mineral Resource estimate of 29.6 million tonnes of sulphide nickel tailings at an average grade of 0.46% nickel has been determined, containing 135,000 tonnes of nickel. In addition, AMC Consultants independently estimated approximately 134.6 million tones of tailings containing 350,758 tonnes of nickel based on historic mill records of the sulphide tailings at the Kambalda and Mt Keith operations.
The Tailings Supply Agreement also provides exclusive rights to BHP Billiton to purchase all nickel product from the Project that complies with product specifications.
