A middle-aged man has been denied service while attempting to purchase beer because his 33-year-old partner didn't have identification – despite the drink being non-alcoholic.

Konrad Kasiske was attempting to buy the beverage from an Auckland supermarket on Saturday afternoon when the checkout worker asked for his and his wife Joanna's IDs.

'The checkout operator asked me for ID, which I gave with a bit of a giggle, I mean I'm 40 I don't look 25 or under so it was a bit of a laugh,' he told the New Zealand Herald.

Mr Kasiske says the Countdown Ponsonby worker then turned to his wife and asked for her identification as well, despite her being in her early 30s.

The woman cited store policy on selling to a group and not being able to check everyone's age in the group, at risk of selling to someone underage.

The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act states if a staff member believes a person looks 25-years-old or younger they must ask all parties for ID.

'I thought it was ridiculous. I haven't been refused alcohol in years, or IDed in years,' Mr Kasiske said.

'I look old enough to buy alcohol and so does my wife. I found it really odd… especially on low-to-no (alcoholic beer).'

The two approached management at the store, but they said they would stand by their worker and refuse the sale.

Mr Kasiske said he understands the position of the supermarket worker, but said the situation and the law was lacking 'a good dose of common sense.'

'Their complete lack of common sense was staggering,' he said.

In a statement provided to Daily Mail Australia, Countdown agreed the law could create frustration but they were standing by the decision.

'We appreciate that sometimes it can seem over-zealous, and it's certainly not our intention to frustrate our customers, but we are committed to getting the right balance.'

'While sometimes our team can underestimate a customer's age, as is the situation here, we'd much rather our team asked for ID than didn't.'

Strickland Metals shares jump 39% ahead of drilling base metal target near DeGrussa

Strickland Metals Ltd (ASX:STK) shares surged 39% today ahead of its maiden drilling program at the Doolgunna Project, which will include a diamond drilling program that is likely to begin by the end of this month.

As a part of the program, a minimum of four diamond holes will be drilled to a depth of 500 metres to test a VMS target similar to the nearby DeGrussa deposit of Sandfire Resources (ASX:SFR).

Exploration activity has recommenced on the Doolgunna Project following completion of heritage surveys to allow land access to areas where the company wishes to complete exploration drilling.

The target for drilling is a compelling base metal prospect that exhibits geological characteristics that are interpreted to be similar to Sandfire Resources’ DeGrussa deposit about 30 kilometres to the east of the project.

Pan Asia Metals Ltd (ASX:PAM) has had positive discussions with authorities in Phang Nga Province, Thailand, including the provincial government, for its Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

PAM has submitted a presentation covering all aspects of the project including methods of ongoing exploration, conceptual mining and concentrate production, and the potential for downstream value-adding industries in Phang Nga and Thailand.

The presentation and subsequent discussions were aimed at assisting Phang Nga Provincial Government in their considerations for the proposed mining and industrial development areas.

Provincial Government discussions


Pan Asia was recently invited by the chief executive officer of the Phang Nga Provincial Administrative Organisation (PAO), a Phang Nga Provincial Government coordinating body, to represent PAM and the Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

The meeting was also attended by the head of Phang Nga Provincial Industry along with the representatives of the Phang Nga Provincial Public Works and Town Planning Office.

Phang Nga Provincial Industry head has been appointed by the Phang Nga governor as chairman of the Phang Nga New Town Planning Committee.

During the meeting, the chairman of the committee conveyed its support for the Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

PAO wants to ensure that the requirements of the Reung Kiet project are incorporated into the town planning committee’s zoning plans to ensure that the project can progress once exploration and feasibility results prove positive.

“Can bring opportunities”


PAM managing director Paul Lock said: “We have been working hard in Phang Nga province and we are very happy with the positive reception that the Reung Kiet Lithium Project is receiving from the Phang Nga Provincial Government and surrounding communities.

“Reung Kiet is strategically located and based on peer feasibility work the project is positioned to potentially be one of the lowest-cost suppliers of lithium chemicals in the global peer group.

“This is a project that can bring substantial opportunities and value to Phang Nga and Thailand.”

Pan Asia is planning its second Reung Kiet drilling program with expectations that this will begin in the coming months following the conclusion of the current Khao Soon drilling program.

Potential cost curve leader


Reung Kiet is a hard rock project with lepidolite rich pegmatites chiefly composed of quartz, albite and lepidolite with minor cassiterite and tantalite as well as other accessory minerals including some rare earth.

Lepidolite does not require roasting and has a suite of by-products which are recoverable at the concentrator and processing stages of the flow sheet.
