Zeegt Coking Coal Mine

Zeegt Coking Coal Mine

Overview

The Zeegt mine is located in southwestern Mongolia approximately 159 km west of Shinejinst and 245 km northeast of the Burgastai Chinese-Mongolian border crossing. Exploration work within the area has identified 101 Mt of JORC 2012 semi-soft coking coal Resources.

Development

  • Zeegt Mine hosts 101 Mt of JORC 2012 semi-soft coking coal Resources located 159km west of Shinejinst and 413km unpaved road to the Mongolia-China border by Burgastai
  • Four mining licenses issued between 1997 and 2013 covering 629 hectares
  • Open cut coal mine with local operations
  • 154 boreholes drilled for 41,216 metres (excluding earlier 54 boreholes drilled)

Resources & Coal Quality

  • Three coal seams have been identified in the Budaakhudag being Zeegt (ZKT), Chandmani (CH) and Khomog (KH) with total coal thickness from 2.1 m to over 37 m
  • The Zeegt resource presents as a low-medium volatile bituminous coal according to the ASTM classification. All coal quality is predominantly high CV, low – medium VM, and low – medium ash content and with a low TS value

Future Plans

  • Drilling program within the planned pit shell targetting to upgrade resource categorisation and mineable quantities
  • Sampling including coal quality and washability testing to confirm coal characteristics and yields
  • Update feasibility study to JORC 2012
