Good to have spares I find these pry tools are invaluable for dismantling small electronic devices. Earphones Although the earphones work fine, one of them lost the metal outside cover within a week. Also one of the cords (right and left). Apple Earphones They are the Apple earphones. Exactly what you expect. The mic and button work with the iPhone 3G, but not the volume buttons.

Good phone, fast, better battery life, retina display Overpriced. You can get it much cheaper via ATT or even Apple direct for 699. Apps is what makes this phone so great.

An amazing phone. In the start it looks like it is difficult to handle, first by price and then by functions. I love my new iphone, it was very easy to sync with itunes - both music and contacts, very intuitive to learn how to do things. I have had the Iphone(Edge) since it came out and find it so suprising that all these people sing its praises.

Vanessa De Macedo Torres

Young leader to head nickel division
ompanhia Vale do Rio Ooce's success in fulfilling its aspirations as a world nickel player will rest with nickel projects manager Vanessa Oe Macedo Torres, who will guide development of the company's first nickel mine. The Niquel do Vermelho project, in northern Brazil, received the go-ahead from CVRO's board in July and is expected to be operating in the third quarter of 2008 (see CVRO story this page). Oe Macedo Torres has a doctorate in minerals engineering, business post-graduate education and 14 years mining industry experience. She has completed international professional assignments and worked in project management, business development, technology, process design, plant optimisation, cost estimation and feasibility evaluation. Oe Macedo Torres was recognised internationally for her ability to deliver complex assignments with velocity, quality and creativity as the recipient of the 2003 Young Leader award from the Society of Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration. She is currently co-chairperson of the young leaders committee. Oe Macedo Torres' mining career has been exclusively with CVRO, based in Brazil, including a five-year stint (1992-97) in technology development and research - mostly with gold and later copper. In 1998, she took 12 months leave to complete her PhO in Vancouver on the evaluation of gold projects and project development. After Canada she moved into the engineering side of the business and then made the transition into management. "CVRO's mining asset base is iron ore, but in 2000 we increased our diversification efforts, expanding our non-ferrous division," Oe Macedo Torres said. "We have 18 exploration offices worldwide and depending on opportunities these offices will expand. We have an exploration office in Brisbane, looking mostly for coal. "CVRO has a good track record working with other cultures - Brazilians are good with identifying with other cultures. "As a mining house, we are in third position (worldwide) and we are focused on growth and diversification."

Gladstone Pacific has proposed to develop the project in three stages, with the first involving producing ore from the Marlborough orebody, while stages two and three will grow with the treatment of high-grade imported ore at the Gladstone plant. "The vision is that it can be a long-life producer, it can be in
Gladstone for 50 years plus, producing a significant quantity level of metal- over 120,000 tpa." Becker said Gladstone
those second generation plants are being applied at Ravensthorpe (BHP Billiton Ltd) and Goro (Inco Ltd), and we are looking to leverage off that. We are assembling an excellent team now, with a strong level of experience. "In fact, we are very fortunate with the takeover of Western Mining by BHP (Billiton) that a number of the key people in Brisbane were requested to move to Perth. Understandably, some of them decided they needed to stay for family reasons in Brisbane and several of those have joined our team."
Pacific was spending $4 million on additional drilling at Marlborough, focusing on four of the 10 deposits. The company had also commissioned a large suite of metallurgical tests and there was a strong emphasis on beneficiation. Gladstone will be the world's biggest coal export terminal by 2010 and that infrastructure is crucial to Gladstone Pacific's project. "We will be bringing in large quantities of high-grade imported ore from the south-west Pacific in capsize vessels across that wharfing facility."

Sherlock Bay back on track
fter a period of change which saw three different managing directors in 2005, Sherlock Bay Nickel Corporation LId appears to be back on track at both its Sherlock Bay nickel project and regional exploration plays. Just one day after the announcement of his appointment, new managing director Darren Hedley gave an upbeat assessment of the company's position, telling delegates an imminent debt equity conversion would allow Sherlock Bay to move forward on its projects. "So, subject to shareholder approval we should be a clean company with $6 million in the bank by the end of next month," he said. 'The releasing of those funds allows the company to reconsider its strategic direction." Part of the funds will be used to further regional exploration opportunities, but Hedley said the Sherlock Bay nickel project would remain the company's "No.1 priority". The Sherlock Bay project sits on the Sholl Shear zone, near Karratha, between Fox Resources LId's Sholl nickel project and Straits Resources LId's Salt Creek base metals discovery. "It is a well located property," Hedley said. "It has gas pipelines and powerlines running 8km away and is located close to a port (at Dampier)." The geology of the Sherlock Bay project was slightly different to most nickel plays. "It's not associated with ultramafics; it is shear hosted and is wide and consistent." Although the grades on the project were not high, the position of the orebody meant low grades could still prove economical. 'The grade gods haven't been kind to us, but they've given us some good opportunities with the way they've placed it. If they'd placed it at 30 degrees, flat and broken up it would be a little bit more difficult. But the way it is placed, it's wide, continuous and nice and vertical. 'Those things certainly work in your favour when you're trying to get things off the Hedley said the company had also ed its first JORC compliant resource using modem techniques. The current in situ resource at the ground." completestimate Sherlock Darren Hedley ed or better category. 'There's a lot of nickel in the ground and it's all within 500m of the surface. It's very simple, it's vertical and the ground conditions are very good," Hedley said. The company has targeted a 10-year mine life for the project producing about 2 mtpa. Starting with an open pit, the project will progress towards an underground operation. "We expect to get 2-3 years out of the pit and then move straight into the underground.

"We've explored a few concepts and have basically decided on a decline at the bottom of the pit. I've personally had experience of underground road trains and they can be are very productive and very cheap." Hedley said Sherlock Bay was associated with BioHeap for its metallurgical processes and was pleased with the progress of the bacterial heap-leaching technology having achieved better than expected results from its three, 1m column tests.

Image on the lookout for established JV partners
mage Resources NL's aggressive regional I geochemistry programme and large aeromagnetic database had successfully identified a number of large projects suitable for follow up EM and drilling programmes, executive director George Sakalidis told delegates "The database generates a lot of projects," he said. "We have a knack for picking up tenements and acting on them very quickly." Image's strategy was to then attract JV partners with the skills and financial resources to effectively explore and add value to these projects. "We seek JV partners who are well established and don't mind spending money to get results," he said. Image's Emu Lake nickel project - 30km from the Silver Swan nickel mine in the Eastem Goldfields - is an example of this strategy. Image will retain a 30% interest in the project and JV partner Jubilee Mines NL will acquire a 60% interest in the project by completing a bankable feasibility study by December 2008. Jubilee is currently undertaking a 4 deephole drill programme at Emu Lake, testing the down-plunge extent of the system. "We have had nine high-grade intercepts from depths ranging between 200-300m at 37% nickel; we see similarities with the Silver Swan mine. "The disposition of our drill holes is very similar to Silver Swan, it gives us great encouragement of the depth extent of this system and Jubilee is looking at testing that over the next month." At its Forrestania-Ravensthorpe nickel prospect, Image holds tenure over 6550sq km and is advancing its geochemical programme. "We've embarked on a regional geochemical programme that has already produced some promising results," Sakalidis said. "The aim is to delineate the geochemical anomalies sufficiently to allow follow up EM and drilling." In line with Image's business strategy, Sakalidis said the company would look for a major JV partner or a new float to fund further exploration at the project. - Dominic Piper

IIRIL FUNDS OOK $300 K ~R PROJECT

Jim McKinnon-Matthews

decided to enter a joint venture it had to contribute up to $5 million for exploration work which in turn would give it an equity interest. The company's major Northern Territory
project was centred near Barrow Creek, about 400km north of Alice Springs, where it is in JV with Falconbridge. It also has another NT project, Indiana, 200km north east of Alice Springs. McKinnon-Matthews said Mithril considered Indiana a "pretty exciting opportunity" with field work scheduled to start this month. In South Australia, Mithril's main exploration location, the company is in a JV with BHPB on the Talia Hill project, about 400km north-east of Port Augusta and 15km south of the Trans Line. The project takes in 150-200km of a major greenstone belt and Mithril expects to be in the area for the medium to long term. Drilling on the project had returned one intersection of 30m @ 0.4% nickel and another of 34m @ 0.45% nickel, encouraging the company to increase its exploration efforts in the next few weeks. McKinnon-Matthews said Mithril had a solid cash position of $5 million which allowed flexibility, with 36.5 million shares on issue mostly held by four shareholders. - Allan Francis

New ambition for Western Areas
new chapter in the life of Perth-based junior Western Areas NL began in October when it lodged its prospectus for listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). And speaking at the Australian Nickel Conference, managing director Julian Hanna said Western Areas planned to do more than just list in Canada. "We're looking to acquire projects there as we think Canada is really underexplored." Hanna said Western Areas was due to lodge the company's prospectus during October and the company's TSX code - WSA - would be the same as the ASX code. "We think it will increase our exposure and provide opportunities," he said, pointing out that there were not that many new openings for Western Areas in Australia. "And Australian shareholders are not that driven by offshore ventures by junior mining companies. " Hanna said the TSX was the world's largest resource exchange, of which nickel formed an important part. He said that because low grades were generally the order of the day in countries outside Australia, Western Areas projects, with their 5-6% nickel grades, had attracted a lot of Canadian interest.

intersections." After receiving assay results - producing an estimated target of aO,OOOt@ 1.5-2.5% nickel - Fox plans further drilling to better delineate the dimensions of the Dawn lode. Results have not yet been received for the other lodes. The Sholl orebody is still open to the south and at depth and Andreazza said Fox would conduct a deep-probe "squid" geophysical programme to test massive sulphides at depths greater than 250m. The gradient of the orebody would allow Fox to start mining without costly capital development in waste. "The average gradient is 1:10 which will allow us to develop along the orebody," he said. The company was two weeks into column tests to determine nickel recoveries on the Radio Hill disseminated ore as part of a feasibility study on its BioHeap disseminated nickel project. The BFS is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2006. - Dominic Piper

New look Titan back on track
ining Titan Ltd M turned junior corner Resourcesdifficult has the after a 12 months and was now moving forward, managing director Jeff Gresham told delegates. Four months into the new fiscal year, Titan had 373.5 million shares on issue, a market cap of $20 million and three major shareholders on its register - Consolidated Minerals Ltd, stockbroking and mining identity David Reed and prospecting identity Mark Creasy. Gresham, who had almost two decades with WMC Resources Ltd, said the move forward was being made possible with a new board and new management. The entry of ConsMin through its whollyowned subsidiary Consolidated Nickel Pty Ltd, which has a 19.9% stake in Titan, had seen a $3.5 millioninjection of funds allowing ConsMin to acquire 50% of the Armstrong project. Titan'sother recent activities have included updating the resource estimates of eight deposits in the Widgiemooltha resource inventory that indicated 8.2mt @ 1.46% nickelfor of 123,0001 contained metal. Greshamsaid the past few months had also seen significantdrill resultsat Widgie Townsite, Munda and Widgie 3 where multiple targets have been identifiedfor evaluation next year.
Refening to the Widgiemooltha project, Gresham said Titan had a dominant land position of 223sq km where past nickel production amounted to 40,364t nickel from three mines. Titan presently has 10 advanced prospects, eight of which have defined resources, and has allocated a budget of $3 million for exploration. On the Armstrong project which is north and lies within the bigger Widgiemooltha project area, Gresham said a resource/reserve review reassessment had been completed with Titan now reviewing project economies and pursuing altemative treatment options for the mineralisation. Work on Armstrong had seen the completion of five resource confirmation drill holes where the best intersection returned 20.85m @ 4.79% nickel. Gresham said that Titan and ConsMin were now looking at developing Armstrong. Other locations where Titan has undertaken work includes the Widgie Townsite prospect where the JORC compliant inferred resource has been put at 2.2mt @1.48% nickel for 32,5001 nickel. Initial confirmatory drilling had returned 12.8m @ 2.94% nickel. On the Widgie Prospect latest drilling had retumed 7.3m @ 2.93% nickel with Titan now assessing the potential for deepening the open cut. On the Munda joint venture (where ConsMin is eaming a 50% interest by contributing Jeff Gresham $1 million in cash and spending a similar amount on exploration by January 2006), the nickel and gold resource has been put at 256,OOOt @1.94% nickel. This prospect, immediately west of the Widgie Townsite prospect, has been earmarked for a major exploration programme, Gresham said. Titan's other JV is with Yilgam Gold on the Carr Boyd project 80km north-east of Kalgoorlie. Yilgam is eaming a 51% stake in the JV and has to spend $3.5 million over four years with a minimum of $400,000 in 2005/6.

fter eight years of work, Allegiance Mining NL's Avebury project in Tasmania amounts to back to the future for the nickel newcomer. The company's project headquarters are at Zeehan near the site of Australia's first nickel mine at Melba Flats in the 1920s. Allegiance is just weeks away from releasing its definitive feasibility study for Avebury and is aiming to begin trial mining and bulk testing by year's end. Avebury operations general manager Paul Richardson told the conference the project involved a three-pronged strategy with the first stage - the $11 million decline and mine access development, resource definition drilling, and regulatory approvals - already completed. He said one of the key attractions of the project was its location - the fact that it was in the State's premier mining province which had over 140 years of mining history. There was ready infrastructure at its door step and, in contrast to mining operations on the Australian mainland, was able to utilise cheap hydro electric power that averaged trt per KW/hour. The project's other pluses included an ore body which was only 200m below the surface and was wide; a State Government that was extremely good to deal with, and new ore resources close to the main deposit. As part of the project's implementation stage, long lead items, such as the mill and
crusher, were being preordered with mill and infrastructure components scheduled for construction by the end of the year. As part of the mill and marketing sequence, trial mining and mill testing, workforce training and supplying customers with concentrate has also been slotted in towards the end of the year. In the test work sequence, testing had already been carried out Allegiance Mining Avebury project general manager Paul Richardson, left, and chairman Tony Howland-Rose. Avebury, where more drilling was planned, had returned 23m @
on crushing and grinding parameters, tailings thickener settled, tailings characterisation, and concentrate filtration with test work still being carried out on reagent optimisation and flash flotation. Richardson said Allegiance's other priority was near mine exploration at East Avebury and at Burbank, 3km south-west of the Avebury mine. In tandem, the company was also carrying out near mine exploration work where it has found extensive ultramafics where none was known. Drilling west of the main ore body along the 1km long mineralised zone had already returned intersections of 30m @ 1.7% nickel and 14m @ 2.5% nickel while at East

one early intersection 0.8% nickel.
Exploration work is also earmarked for the Melba and East Renison prospects north-east of Zeehan. At Melba, close to the bulk rail facilities that Allegiance will use to transport its ore to the port of Burnie on the north-west coast, exploration had revealed disseminated high-grade nickel sulphides, which had developed on the footwall of a gabbro dyke. At the East Renison prospect, nickel sulphides had been reported in old mines and to date there had been no exploration for this mineralisation.
Independence sets cracking pace
or a geologist by profession, Chris Bonwick's transition to managing director of Independence Group NL, has come naturally - he knows how to showcase his company. His introduction was to the point. Independence, Bonwick told delegates, was a new company, had good mines and exploration ground, was the cheapest (Australian) nickel producer for two years, and produced a lot of money. He said that within three years of listing on the ASX, Independence had been able to pay its shareholders a dividend. Independence had a strong cash reserve and cash generation potential; to June this year it had $28.3 million in cash plus receivables. The strength of the company also lay in its robust and expanding high-grade mining reserve position with the company still producing from "outside" its reserve base. It also had a highly prospective exploration portfolio with recent successes at its AngloGold Ashanti LId joint venture Tropicana, where Independence is earning a 30% interest, and at Dalwallinu where the target is gold. This year had also seen the company outlay
$11 million for an 18.9% interest in Matrix Metals copper project in north-west Queensland north and south of Mt Isa. But the money generator for Independence, delegates learned, was from the Long nickel mine at Kambalda, which it purchased from WMC Resources LId and recommissioned in 2002, and which to June 2005 returned $87.6 million of free cash before capital and tax. One of the reasons behind Independence's success had been its ability to produce nickel at a cash cost of $3.321lb. Another dividend from the Long mine purchase had been the discovery of the McLeay deposit where just weeks ago the company reported high-grade extensions outside the resource/reserve base which was still open to the north, south and east. Exploration drilling had returned an intersection which included 6m @ 8.3% nickel and 6m @ 6.1% nickel and the existing resource estimate of 13,0001 of contained nickel was expected to increase substantially. Long mine nickel ore reserves had

Bonwick told his audience that the company had reached agreement with BHP Billiton LId to purchase ground immediately north of the Long Complex where it has found lots of mineralised extensions. Exploration drilling had retumed intersections of 3.43m @ 4.5% nickel. At Gibb South, also in the Long project area, intersections nickel. had included 4.41m @ 16.2%
Bonwick said Independence had budgeted $4.3m for exploration in 2005/06 for its seven nickel, eight gold and one copper prospect. In addition to ongoing exploration and production from the Long project, Independence was in the Lake Lefroy JV in the Kambalda Field. The company's other nickel projects are in the north-eastern Goldfields where it is involved in the Irwin, Yandal, and Duketon JVs north-west of Windarra. Summing up, Bonwick said Independence's goals were to increase shareholder wealth by becoming a highly profitable, mid-cap, multicommodity company with growth through exploration and possible acquisition. - Allan Francis

Ambitious newcomer casts wide net
he company which floated on the back of the nickel assets of Croesus Mining NL finds itself in a strong cash position to further
its vision of becoming an independent minerai producer through exploration sition. and acqui-
tual play in Victoria." Subsequent to listing in late 2003, Nickel Australia has picked up prospects at Killaloe, Maggie Hayes South and the Bounty area. At the Monarch project at Norseman, nickel-copper-platinum mineralisation is hosted in the Mission Sill, a layered mafic-ultramafic intrusion with overall dimensions of at least five by one kilometres. Norseman also contains the relatively untested Mt Thirsty mafic-ultramafic intrusion. "There is a large open nickel-copper-platinum anomaly at Monarch and we have been very encouraged by the first-pass wide-spaced drilling programme. At Davyhurst, north-west of Kalgoorlie, Manouge said the project was considered to be a significant greenfields nickel sulphide play which hosts four main ultramafic belts and was relatively unexplored for nickel due to the historical focus on gold. "We have only just gone in there looking at two priority electromagnetic targets and we've been encouraged by the initial attack of firstPat Manouge
pass aircore drilling," Manouge said. Nickel Australia has established a significant landholding in the well endowed, high-grade Bounty nickel province which the company considered under-explored. The project contains three ultramafic belts with a combined strike of about 30km. "There is no reason why there shouldn't be massive sulphides there. Nickel sulphides have been confirmed by historical, and our, drilling." The company's 13 Mexican projects cover more than 6,OOOsq km of the Arizona-Sonora Porphyry Belt in a major mineral province hosting substantial precious and base metal deposits prospective for a range of deposit styles and sizes. Nickel Australia has a JV with Geoformatics Exploration Inc and has access to a pipeline of projects through Geoformatics' alliance with Rio Tinto Ltd subsidiary Kennecott Exploration Inc. - Doug Wilkinson

Nickel Australia Ltd is focused on intensive field exploration and Pat Manouge, exploration manager, told the Australian Nickel Conference that though the company's vision was the same as most companies it was in a good position to further its goals. "We have already spent a lot of money on exploration and have a good cash position," Manouge said. "Nickel Australia has a two-pronged attack on exploration - nickel sulphides, gold and copper in Australia and copper, gold and silver in Mexico - with a good portfolio of high quality exploration properties and a strong exploration budget." The company has eight nickel sulphide projects in Westem Australia and 13 copper, gold and silver projects in Mexico and set its 2005 exploration budget at $2.5 million. "We are actively pursuing further nickel sulphide projects and 75% of the budget is spent on nickel sulphides," Manouge said. "We also have an application on a concep-

Sally Malay on target to deliver
last year by Sally Malay Mining Ltd that the company had its sights set on being the fifth ranked Australian nickel producer by 2006. The company's presentation this year - entitled "Delivering as Promised" - indicates it is on track to achieve that goal. In 2004, Sally Malay started open pit mining and commissioned its plant at its namesake project in Western Australia's Kimberley region. Last year the company also acquired the former WMC Resources Ltd Lanfranchi mine in the Kambalda region and delivered its first ore to the Kambalda concentrator in February this year. Managing director Peter Harold told the conference the company had $2.4 billion of nickel, copper and cobalt resources in in situ assets at Sally Malay and Lanfranchi. "The name of the game is to get it out of the ground and sell it," he said. With both mines in production, a management restructure completed and operations now under owner-operator status, the company is on target for more than 15,0001 a year nickel equivalent to give it the fifth ranking. "Lanfranchi was down for five weeks earlier this year but is now at full production," Harold said. "The board has changed a bit (since last year) but it is always healthy to have a change." Although Sally Malay was a "single track company" now, it intended to diversify into other minerals. It had attracted strong institutional investment over the past year with 50% of the stock held offshore. "The share price currently tracks the nickel price," Harold said. Sally Malay bought the Sally Malay project for $1.7 million in 2001 which then had a contained nickel resource of 65,000t. It reached full production earlier this year with open pit mining at 740,000t @ 1.24% nickel and 11,670t @ 1.13% from underground development. "We paid more in stamp duty on Lanfranchi than we did for the entire Sally Malay project," Harold said, expressing his annoyance at state govemment policies. "The open pit (at Sally Malay) finishes in February 2006 then we go underground. We are getting much better recoveries than expected and have raised our budgeted recovery figures." Harold said Sally Malay was producing a premium concentrate with typical grades of 8.5% nickel, 4.0-5.0% copper and 0.5% cobalt. "We produced about 6,000t of concentrate last (fiscal) year and will significantly lift that to 8-9,000t this year." The profit retums from the concentrate are expected to be 70% from nickel and 15% from copper and cobalt. Harold said the Kimberley project area had significant upside with an anomaly to the north-

resource and significant exploration upside. Historic production from Lanfranchi stands at 3.1 mt @ 3.2% for 98,450t nickel. Several prospects have been discovered in the area and already have indicated-inferred resources totalling 3.648mt @ 2.03%. The new Skinner prospect was discovered by accident. Forecast production from Lanfranchi for 2005/06 has been put at 4,514t and 6,282t for 2006/07. Harold said the company was looking at mining the lower extensions of the orebody with mechanised gear instead of the currently used airleg miners. "There is a lot of potential to lift production and there is additional capacity in our contract with the concentrator." Harold said an exploration decline was being developed to look for downplunge extensions of the Schmitz and Lanfranchi orebodies. Peter Harold east of the pit, underground targets being drilled off the decline, ultramafic outcrops to the south and deep drilling scheduled for mid2006. The Copemicus prospect to the south has an open pit reserve of 355,OOOt@ 1.14%, Corkwood to the east 225,OOOt @ 0.65% and the company has increased its landholdings in the region. The company also has the Koondooloo Yard prospect where a strong aeromagnetic anomaly has been identified although Harold wasn't convinced of the mineral. "I don't think it is nickel - it could be diamonds." Harold said the Sally Malay plant was performing very well and exceeding design capacity by 10%. The plant reconciliation of ore mined against reserves showed 24% extra nickel and Harold believed the plant was capable of 1 mtpa. The Lanfranchi mine was purchased for $26 The Helmut South anomaly would also be investigated. There was also "enormous potential" for a possible northern side repetition of the Lanfranchi mineralisation and immediate potential to significantly increase the resource base. Harold said $2 million had been budgeted for 2005/06 exploration. Combined nickel recovery for the two mines was forecast at 11,227t for 2005/06 and 13,699t the following year for earnings of $40 million in 2005/06 and $75 million in 2006/07. "There is a good story developing there," Harold said. "Unfortunately, we didn't have a lot of tax credits (from the Lanfranchi acquisition). "We are exceeding expectations and have a good exploration base from which to grow." Harold said Sally Malay had targeted a third mine for the near future. The first two mines coincided with the birth of his first two children and his wife was expecting again in April next year. "I've still got some work to do," he said.

When things just work

estern Minerals Technology LId - an 80% owned subsidiary of LionOre Australia LId - has produced better than expected results from its Activox demonstration plant at LionOre's Tati nickel mine in Botswana. WMT general manager Gary Johnson said the Activox hydrometallurgical process is a combination of fine grinding and pressure oxidation. "Fine grinding enables us to make the pressure oxidation work at low temperatures and low pressures - so we're not talking pressure oxidation the way the laterites talk about it at 250C," he said. "We're talking 100C, the boiling point of your average kettle, and 1,000 kpa or 10 atmospheres pressure. "Activox has a long development history and Gavin Becker (Gladstone Pacific Nickel LId) was intimately involved in the early days, when he was project manager of the Yakabindie project for Dominion Mining LId. "I can remember clearly the day when Gavin gave me two samples of nickel concentrate from the Yakabindie orebody, one of which was smelter quality concentrate, so low magnesium oxide (mgo) and high nickel but produced at low recovery; and another concentrate that was high mgo, completely unsaleable and we took that into the Activox process. We got 98% nickel out of both of those concentrates. "That was really the starting point for the development of the Activox process and downstream process for making nickel metal. "In the late 90s, Dominion Mining lost interest in a lot of things associated with mining, in particular nickel and technology development, and that's when LionOre Australia acquired an 80% stake in what is now Western Minerals Technology - my company holds the remaining 20% and for my sins I get to run the business for them." The first step in the development was to pilot the Nkomati project in South Africa in 1998, prior to LionOre acquiring a 50% stake in that project. The next step was to apply the technology at the Tati project in Botswana, which led to the construction of a demonstration plant onsite. "The objective for LionOre is to leverage the Activox technology into a low-cost, vertically integrated nickel business through this pilot testing, the demonstration plant in Botswana and a major investment here in Australia by purchasing the Bulong (Avalon) lateritic nickel plant. "We are currently doing the study work of converting that into a sulphide nickel refinery." The building block for LionOre's hydro metallurgical strategy in Australia is based around the Honeymoon Well nickel deposit, a 17km north-west trending segment of the highlyendowed Agnew-Wiluna greenstone belt located immediately north of the Mt Keith nickel mine in Western Australia.

CHIEF PANDERERS REMARKS
Dear Conodont Colleagues: A year has gone by since I last communicated like this, and Im pleased (and relieved) that another Pander Society Newsletter is ready to go. Thank you for having sent in your reports and questionnaires; without your willingness to going through a bit of pain there would be no Pander Society Newsletter, and our communications would be the poorer. I am very grateful to compiler and editor Joan Burke (Toronto) and webmaster Mark Purnell (Leicester) for their dedication and ongoing interest; they have helped me greatly and continue to make me look better than I really am, particularly in a time of personal and professional transition. You, the Pander Society membership, continue to re-invent and apply conodonts in startling new ways. Some of this re-invention was seen at the Pander Society Symposium in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where on March 20-22, 2006 our (mostly) North American members focused on Conodonts & Sequence Stratigraphy. Looking ahead, the programme of ICOS 2006 on July 12-30/ 2006 in Leicester, England, promises not only to surprise and delight, but looks remarkably diverse and imaginative. Christian Pander, would, on the 150th anniversary of the publication of his major conodont study, no doubt be enormously impressed and pleased with the innovativeness and progress of his intellectual grandchildren. My best wishes to all of you. Peter Peter H. von Bitter, Chief Panderer. Department of Natural History, Royal Ontario Museum & Department of Geology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada <peterv@rom.on.ca> May 31, 2006

Thank you

The Pander Society is indebted to the Department of Natural History, Royal Ontario Museum for its financial support, that made the assembly and production of this Newsletter possible; the Society is further indebted to Joan Burke for volunteering her time and expertise on the Newsletter, long after she retired from the ROM, and at a time in her life when she could be putting her feet up and taking it easy. Finally, the Society thanks the University of Leicester for permitting the Newsletter to continue to be distributed from the University server.

Financial Matters

Although Pander Society members pay no dues, and the Society has no budget, a small pot of money, was somehow put together and safely tucked away by our previous Chief Panderer, Dick Aldridge. This money was transferred to Toronto in 2004 and was put into a business bank account, one with minimal monthly charges. In 2005 some of the money was used to help in the assembly and production of the Newsletter; this year, some of the money purchased the most up-to-date version of EndNote. This programme has already made the entry of bibliographic data easier; it promises to help you, the membership, to retrieve old and new entries, and should help the Pander Society with more logical, longterm storage and management of bibliographic data. The balance in the Pander Society coffers is about $110.30 (Canadian); if anyone would like to help the Society financially with the production of the annual newsletter, or with other miscellaneous expenses, the Chief Panderer would be delighted to be approached.

USGS, led a field trip to central Pennsylvania. John introduced a small but enthusiastic collection of Panderers, including a group of Jeff Overstudents from SUNY-Geneseo, to the Palaeozoic rocks of the Appalachian fold belt. The trip began on a chilly morning in a quarry near Roaring Springs, Pennsylvania, that exposes a section of Ibexian through Mohawkian strata. Later in the day, John Taylor (Indiana University of Pennsylvania) joined the party and supervised a visit to an exposure of Silurian and Devonian rocks along Interstate 99 near Altoona, Pennsylvania. The excursion concluded with a brief stop to see the Loyalhanna Limestone Member (Mississippian) of the Mauch Chunk Formation. (Submitted by Ray Ethington). Members of the Society gathered in the Welsh Borderlands in December for the annual Pre-PalAss get together, under the auspices of the Microvertebrate Group of The Micropalaeontological Society. A crisp and sunny day in the field looking at some classic Silurian sections was followed by an evening of talks and discussion in the comfortable surroundings of the Malvern Hills Hotel. Thanks to Rob Raine for organising the meeting.

Following from the highly successful series of meetings held under the ECOS banner, ICOS 2006, the first International Conodont Symposium, will be held in Leicester, UK, in July 2006. Summarized Programme July 12 - 16, Excursion 1 - The Carboniferous of Ireland July 17 18, Technical Sessions July 19, Day Excursions (see below) July 20, Technical Sessions, Conference Banquet July 21, Morning - Technical Sessions; afternoon - Palaeobiology Workshop July 21 - 27, Excursion 2 - Iapetus - from coast to coast
Symposia Pander's legacy, 150 years on. 2006 marks the Sesquicentennial of Pander's monograph in which conodonts were described for the first time. This symposium will consider Pander and his scientific contribution, including his work on conodonts, other fossil vertebrates, and developmental biology. Keynote speakers in this symposium will include Dick Aldridge who will be speaking on Pander and the phylogenetic position of the conodonts - then and now; Simon Knell (Museum Studies, Leicester), on Pander's contributions in their historical context and subsequent work; Anthony Graham (Developmental Biology, King's College, London) on Pander's seminal work in developmental biology; Peter Forey (Palaeontology, Natural History Museum) on Pander 1856 and ostracoderm vertebrates - from bits of scale to living fishes Conodont phylogenies - alternative approaches, implications, and applications. Hypotheses of conodont phylogeny underpin many areas of conodont research, including taxonomy, biostratigraphic zonation, evolutionary palaeobiology, and analysis of the quality of the fossil record. This session will explore alternative approaches to reconstructing conodont phylogeny, their assumptions, implications and applications. Keynote: Philip Donoghue. Conodonts, Palaeobiogeography and Palaeoceanography. Convened by Dick Aldridge, this session will cover all aspects of global influences on conodont distribution and the uses of conodonts in the investigation of palaeocontinental configurations, eustatic sea-level changes, climate models and the ocean/atmosphere system. Topics will include conodont biogeography, conodont geochemistry and the relationship between conodont distribution and sequence stratigraphy. Investigations of major patterns of extinction, radiation and faunal turnover will also be relevant. Keynote: Chris Barnes. Triassic Conodonts: Taxonomy and Time Scales. Convened by Mike Orchard. Conodonts play a primary role in Triassic biochronology and yet the taxonomic framework in which they are applied remains largely based on form taxonomic concepts. This symposium will explore both the variability of taxonomic approaches currently in use in the study of Triassic conodonts, including their Permian forebears, and their application in biostratigraphy and time scales. Keynote: Mike Orchard 'Coniform' Conodont Apparatuses and Architecture - Whence and Whither? Convened by Paul Smith and John Repetski. The last two decades have seen a major leap forward in the interpretation of more derived conodonts, with the elucidation of apparatus architectures using natural assemblages and the use of these architectural models as templates for apparatus reconstruction in taxa unrepresented by natural assemblages. In contrast, primitive conodonts with apparatuses composed of coniform elements are poorly represented by natural assemblages and it is clear that the record is replete with partial reconstructions, and limitations created by the unknown extent of morphologically similar elements within the apparatuses of individual conodonts. Even simple questions regarding the apparatuses of these taxa have uncertain answers. How many elements were there in conodonts with apparatuses of this type? How similar was the architecture to that of primitive prioniodontid conodonts? How much variation in architecture is there within primitive conodonts? Can consistent architectural models be developed with the available assemblage data? If so, can these be used to guide apparatus reconstruction in taxa represented only by collections of isolated elements? If the phylogeny of primitive conodonts, and other aspects of their palaeobiology, are to be investigated in a secure, reproducible and testable manner, then better constrained apparatus models are essential. Devonian Conodont Biostratigraphy Convened by Pierre Bultynck. The Devonian standard conodont zonation, mostly based on successions in deeper-water deposits, is widely used among conodont workers. However, some zones are not always easily accepted. This symposium will focus on the following topics: constraints on the Devonian standard conodont zonation; alternative zonations in deeper-water facies; alternative zonations/faunas in shallower-water facies; graphic correlation. Kenote: Sophie Gouwy Workshops and Day excursions Wednesday, July 19 Short Field Excursion: Lower Carboniferous, North Staffordshire. Leaders: Patrick Cossey (University of Staffordshire) and Mark Purnell. This trip will visit two or three localities which expose Lower Carboniferous sections on the margins of the beautiful Peak District National Park. Localities to be visited will include Brown End Quarry, of early Visean age, and Cauldon Railway Cutting, of Serpukhovian age. Both localities yield some rich conodont faunas; the Cauldon fauna (which also includes abundant micro-

A Silurian Meeting in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy - Time and Life in the Silurian: A Multidisciplinary Approach Late Spring 2009
A Subcommission on Silurian Stratigraphy meeting and field trip in the late spring of 2009 in Cagliari (Sardinia, Italy). Final dates are not yet fixed, but the most probable period would be the first half of June.A preliminary schedule includes three days of scientific sessions and the Subcommission business meeting. Main emphasis will be paid to integrated multidisciplinary studies in Silurian rocks and fossil biota. Scientific sessions will be followed by three days of field trip: relatively deep water limestone and black shale facies will be demonstrated in a selected number of outcrops and sections.The first circular can be expected in early 2007.

SUMMARY OF RESEARCH INTERESTS
Chief Panderers Note: When, in last years Pander Society Newsletter, I expressed dissatisfaction about how limited (and limiting) the Categories to be checked off under Research Interests were, I had no idea about the veritable Panders Box that I was opening. Not defining or limiting research categories and letting you the members express yourselves freely, led to great inventiveness on your part, attributable to creativity and differences in personality, experience, language, and culture. Initially, I didnt know what to do, but once I settled down, I decided to have a bit of fun and attempt to put like categories with like categories, without worrying about alphabetical order etc. If your interests are correctly grouped with other similar and related interests, then please give me a passing grade; if I didnt succeed, and I have placed you and your research interests in strange, unrelated places, then please dont take it personally, but accept my apologies and fail me. And, no, I dont know how well do it next year, but if you have suggestions do let me know. (PvB) Cambrian.

Although retired from teaching, I continue working in the Department essentially fulltime and maintain my research program in North America, Baltoscandia, and China. However, much of my current research does not involve conodonts to a significant degree as shown by the fact that among many papers and abstracts published, only three papers deal with conodonts. The most significant was a study of middle Llandovery conodonts from Sweden (with P. Dahlquist). Although I am still involved in conodont projects, most of my time these days is spent on geochemical work (13C chemostratigraphy and the use of isotopes for assessing Ordovician sea water temperatures). This has led to exciting results, including new interpretations of the stratigraphy and depositional conditions during round the Ordovician/Silurian boundary in North America and Baltoscandia.

Currently working on detailed stratigraphy of the Guadalupian-Lopingian (=Middle-Upper Permian) boundary interval and the Lopingian/Induan (=Permian-Triassic) boundary interval in South China and in Japan. Nadezhda G. Izokh. Study of conodonts from Ordovician, Silurian and Devonian of the Altai-Sayan folded area, West Siberia, Russia and South Tien Shan. Lennart Jeppsson. Collecting and processing work on the Linde and Klev events, and on the recently discovered early Wenlock Ansarve event has yielded much new data. This is critical for achieving a highresolution stratigraphy for these intervals, to identify localities for future work (on other major clades, isotopic and sedimentological changes), to judge the strength of these events, and, not least, to reveal how badly conodonts fared during these events. Manuscripts include papers now in the list of publications (see also Calner et al.), the submitted one and the subzones of the O. s. rhenana Zone. These can be followed across different facies belts in the Silurian sequence of Gotland. Application of them result in unexpected large revisions in the local stratigraphy, but also makes the range of other clades conform with those found elsewhere. David Ian Johnston. A paper on disrupted conodont bedding plane assemblages from the Mississippian of western Canada by Charles Henderson and myself has been published. We also presented a poster on this topic at the AAPG meeting in Calgary this past June. I have also been doing some biostratigraphic service work involving conodonts this year as well. Working on another manuscript (with C. Henderson) concerning the conodont biostratigraphy and the implications for sequence stratigraphy for the upper Wabamun Group to lower Banff Formation interval in the surface and subsurface of southern Alberta. The work is based on the MSc thesis of C. Hendersons recent graduate student Michael Schmidt. I am now involved in non-conodont work by providing services in petroleum geology. David Jones. Working on morphometric analysis of Ozarkodina excavata and Pterospathodus to examine taxonomy, population variation and evolutionary rates, patterns and processes. Gareth Ll. Jones. Mineral exploration activities in Ireland only just begun to lift again, lagging behind the recovery in zinc prices. I look forward to working with conodonts (and foraminifers, algae, etc.) in 2006. Meanwhile geothermal exploration is keeping me warm! Jun Chen. In order to know more about Late Permian-Early Triassic conodonts from Meishan Section (GSSP), South China, especially the evolutionary status of genera Clarkina, many samples have been collected and processed. Abundant specimens have been picked from these residues. Now working on my thesis (under Prof. Charles M. Henderson, Calgary, Canada) and hopefully will be completed by mid-2006. Tea Kolar-Jurkov ek. Most of my projects on Triassic biostratigraphic studies in Slovenia and Croatia continue collaboratively with my colleagues. An intensive study of the P-T interval and Lower Triassic is in progress in many sections of the Dinarides in order to define the systemic boundary biostratigraphically. Micropaleontological study of two sections in the Raibl Beds (Carnian) of Slovenia have been published; 1) a conodont apparatus of Nicoraella ? budaensis is demonstrated from the Belca section; and 2) some new gastropod taxa are recognized from the two assemblages of the Mezica area. Erik Cowing Katvala. Most of my work to date has focused on using biostratigraphic, paleoecologic, and paleogeographic data from Mississippian through Triassic conodonts to help constrain paleontologic, stratigraphic and tectonic interpretations in the accreted terranes of western North America. I have also been working on element distributions in conodont elements on the electron microprobe. Ali Murat Kilic.

initiatives such as the Chronos System and the Palaeontological Database. The focus of this project is to improve the CONOP software used for the Chronos Web through decreasing problems faced when crossing facies boundaries between carbonate-dominated facies into shale-dominated facies. Jau-Chyn Liao (aka Teresa). As a Ph.D. student I am working on Givetian and Lower Frasnian conodonts from the Pyrenees. My main point is to establish a fine biostratigraphical scale for the Givetian and to contribute to the current decisions concerning Givetian subdivision. Another important issue is the recognition of the Eifelian/Givetian and Givetian/Frasnian boundaries and to establish the origin and succession of the genus Ancyrodella in the Pyrenees. Two years ago I started to work on Givetian/Frasnian microfacies with P. Knigshof & E. Schindler. Several presentations on biostratigraphy and interpretation on paleoenvironments (with Ph.D. advisor Nacho Valenzuela) at Siberian meeting in Novosibirsk. Anita Lfgren.

Fortunately it is over and I have got a good chance to getting back to proper conodont research and to fulfilling some of my obligations to co-authors. Studies involving Devonian and Mississippian conodonts continue at various paces. The manuscript on the Devonian and Mississippian stratigraphy and facies development in NW Poland (Western Pomerania), including also a comparative study with adjoining areas (Lithuania, Latvia in the east and north-eastern Germany in the west), has been completed and a paper will be published this year. Several papers are in progress, with E. Turnau on the Middle Devonian and Frasnian conodont and palynomorph biostratigraphy, as well as on the Givetian/Frasnian boundary. I have also started work on Mississippian facies distribution in NW Poland. Work (with A. Tomas) has commenced on the tectonic and climatic controls on sedimentation and distribution of foraminifer faunas during the Famennian. With coauthors also engaged in integrated conodont-miospore-foram biostratigraphic, sedimentologic, event stratigraphic, and magnetic susceptibility study of the Middle and Upper Devonian in NW Poland.

Papers on the evolutionary lineages and taxonomy of the genera Isarcicella and Hindeodus are currently being prepared. A study of conodonts from the P-T transition (subsurface) in the Perth Basin, Australia is underway. Studies of conodonts from southeast Asia and China continue, principally Permian and Triassic. Ron Metzger. Planning to return to working on a project involving multielement taxonomy of collections from the Devonian State Quarry Limestone around Iowa City, Iowa. C. Giles Miller. This year my conodont activities seem to have mainly been chasing Devonian specimens from Sub Polar Urals around slides and changing my mind about their multielemental relationships. After a year of pondering I have made some tentative reconstructions of Ancyrodella, Mesotaxis and several prioniodinids. In the meanwhile Ive been to conferences in Armenia (where I collected more Devonian material), St. Petersburg and Oxford, UK where I presented various multielemental reconstructions. Now I just have to make some counts and stick my neck out and publish them. Ive also started a project on Iranian Silurian conodonts with Vachik Hairapetian (Azak University, Iran). James F. Miller. Still working on conodont biostratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy, and chonostratigraphy of Upper Cambrian and Lower Ordovician strata in western Utah and central Texas.

Working on Permian (Iran, Oman) and Triassic conodont faunas from southern Italy (Pizzo, Mondello, Scicily). Rodney D. Norby. Activities have slowed considerably but am still working with Don Mikulic on biostratigraphy within the Silurian of Illinois and adjacent area; working on organizing older collections and some CAI work with John Repetski and others. Since retirement a year ago, I retain an office with Illinois State Geological Survey and am still in charge of the ISGS Paleontological collections, including conodonts. Godfrey S. Nowlan. My work on conodonts has been severely curtailed for the last three years as I continue to work on public geoscience eduction in northern Canada. I am working slowly on a few projects: 1) Conodont biostratigraphy and paleoecology of the Ordovician and Silurian rocky shoreline exposed on the shore of Hudson Bay near Churchill, Manitoba (with G. Young & R. Elias); 2) The Nd isotope ratios and Sm/Nd ratio and conodont paleoecology of late Ordovician strata in the subsurface of Saskatchewan (with C. Holmden & F. Haidl); 3) Early Cambrian embryos and small shelly fossils from the

to these collections by new sampling to provide conodont evidence for the wide extent of Alamo Impact megatsunami distal uprush and backwash deposits. With Anita Harris, I continue to identify blast-fallout Silurian, Ordovician and Cambrian conodont faunas, redeposited in lapilli beds within the Alamo Impact Breccia in southern Nevada. For a geologic map with Barney Poole, I am making new conodont collections from the Devonian platform-to-basin transitional sequence and deep-water channels of the Alamo Breccia in southern Hot Creek Range, Nevada. Also, I am processing and identifying Ordovician, Devonian, Mississippian, Pennsylvanian, and Permian conodont samples collection by Poole from northern Sonora, Mexico. I am also studying conodont collections process by Jim Miller from the Mississippian Weaubleau Impact breccia in Missouri. As time permits, I am re-identifying my older conodont collections and adding them to the D/C Conodont Database. This database, a work in progress since 1991, quickly provides information on ranges and distribution of all Devonian and Mississipian taxa.
