Mr Humphries said that Mr Schier was up to the job.

“I know that Andrew is well respected in the Gilgandra community – as a farmer and meat processor, in local sporting clubs and right across the region as chairman of the Western Racing Association.

“As a local farmer and father, he knows the people, he knows the issues and hes got the right sort of fight in him to stand up for us in Macquarie Street,” said Mr Humphries.

Mr Schier wasted no time laying out his priorities.

“I believe that the education of our younger people in the region is a key component which leads to improved outcomes in employment, health and families.”

NSW Nationals leader John Barilaro said he believes Mr Schier has the “character, determination and leadership skills required to be an effective advocate for the people of Barwon.”

“Andrew showed he has a detailed knowledge of the challenges facing people across this huge electorate, and he has united the party members in Barwon behind a vision to strengthen and grow the region.

“During pre-selection candidates took part in vigorous discussion on key issues affecting the seat of Barwon including water, gas and employment.

“In regional and rural NSW, more than anywhere else, people need to feel that their local member knows them, will listen to them, and will be prepared to ruffle a few feathers if its the right thing to do.

“I know that Andrew has the ability to do just that,” Mr Barilaro said.

Deputy Leader Niall Blair agreed that Mr Schiers pre-selection was the decision of grassroots party members who themselves live and work across the vast electorate of Barwon. “Andrew proved to our local members today that he has what it takes to fight for the people of Barwon,” he said.

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).

Heritage survey[hhmc]
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.

The prospect has a 3-kilometre-long electromagnetic conductor that lies below an outcropping copper-zinc gossan that has been mapped over a 1.2-kilomet..

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.
