Northcliff President & CEO Christopher Zahovskis commented "We are very pleased to complete the Qualifying Transaction and financing, even as equity markets soften. Both the size of the offering and the share price confirm that the Company has a high-quality mineral asset. We will use the proceeds to advance work on a feasibility study and an Environmental Impact Assessment for the project. Our goal is to complete the feasibility study and submit the Environmental Impact Study by the third quarter of 2012."
"Tungsten prices have been increasing for over a year as the supply from China has tightened" said Chairman Robert Dickinson. "This bodes well for Northcliff and its feasibility-stage Sisson Project, which hosts a significant deposit of tungsten and molybdenum that is located near tidewater and readily accessible to markets in the United States and Europe."
Feasibility work advancing at the Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project
In October 2010, Northcliff entered into an agreement with Geodex Minerals Ltd., whereby it acquired a 70% interest in the Sisson Project which it can retain by investing up to $17 million in exploration, feasibility and project costs.
The Sisson Project hosts a large, near-surface, tungsten-molybdenum deposit that is potentially amenable to open pit mining. Previous project work includes 237 core drill holes, and initial engineering studies including metallurgical work. Baseline environmental and socioeconomic data collection also began in 2007.
Currently estimated mineral resources, as reported in the Company's technical report at a 0.100% WO3 equivalent1 threshold, comprise:
The Company's current program includes engineering and environmental studies, designed to provide the data necessary to complete mine planning and necessary environmental and socioeconomic assessments for the project, as well as active engagement with local communities and other stakeholders.
Prior to the completion of the Qualifying Transaction, the following reorganizations were completed: (i) Cabre Capital Corp. changed its name to Northcliff Resources Ltd.; (ii) Northcliff Resources Ltd. changed its name to Northcliff Holdings (Canada) Ltd.; and (iii) Cabre Capital Corp. consolidated its share capital on the basis of 5 old Cabre Capital Corp. shares for one new Cabre Capital Corp. share.
