Two much loved members of the Nyngan community, Annie Quarmby and Patricia “Bay” Lovett, were announced as the Bogan Shire Senior Citizens of the Year during the Seniors Week celebrations last week.

Bogan Shire mayor Ray Donald presented Ms Quarmby with her award at a morning tea held in the Nyngan Town Hall. Ms Lovett was unfortunately unable to attend the presentation but will be recognised in the near future.

Ms Quarmby is known for her happy and obliging disposition. She volunteers at the Nyngan Museum where she ensures everything is always “ship shape” and visitors are always made to feel welcome. Ms Quarmby also helps with “Meals on Wheels” and “Days for Girls” and has played the organ at the Uniting Church for many years.

Similarly MS Lovett has made a diverse contribution to the local community. She has been a much loved foster carer for many, a girl guide leader for over 30 years, an active member of the Nyngan CWA, View Club, the Uniting and Baptist churches and has helped for many years with Meals on Wheels, Wrap with Love and the Nyngan Museum.

The other nominees were Colin “Codge” McCarthy and Steve Read, who are also tireless contributors to the local community.

Steve Read has worked tirelessly as president of the Nyngan Bowling Club, often doing stints behind the bar or as greenkeeper before and after work. He has helped co-ordinate many charity days at the club to raise money for charitable causes. Steve is currently ringmaster at the Nyngan Show, and for many years has used his musical talent to entertain. He and his mum Doreen have also given many hours to maintaining the grounds of the Nyngan Anglican Church.

Colin “Codge” McCarthy is the vital cog in the wheel at the Mid State Shearing Museum, welcoming visitors and overseeing the upkeep of the display. He also gives his time with Meals on Wheels and the Nyngan Golf Club.

All four nominees were recognised with gifts at the Seniors week morning tea.

Other Seniors week celebrations included a combined church service, hosted by Father Paul at St Patricks Church, and followed by a morning tea in the McKillop Hall. The stage three students at St Josephs School played a part in the Mass celebrating their elders, and later singing to them at the morning tea.

Popular Nyngan performer Royden Donoghue put on a concert in the grounds of the Mick Glennie Hostel for all members of the community.

Wednesday hosted a bingo afternoon at the Nyngan RSL club, and on Friday residents were treated to an open day at the Nyngan Museum.

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..

Pan Asia Metals has positive discussions on plans for Thai lithium 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.
