Blackstone Minerals Ltd (ASX: BSX / OTCQX: BLSTF / FRA: B9S) is focussed on building a upstream and downstream battery metals processing business in Vietnam that produces Nickel: Cobalt: Manganese Precursor products for Asia’s growing Lithium-ion battery industry. We own a 90% interest in the Ta Khoa Nickel Project (“TKN”). The TKN is located 160km west of Hanoi in the Son La Province of Vietnam and includes an existing modern nickel mine built to Australian standards, which is currently being used to process nickel ore delivered by the underground bulk sample program.
Blackstone’s TKN and Ta Khoa Refinery (“TKR”) are the two major cogs in the Company’s vertically integrated development strategy (together - the Ta Khoa Project). The Company’s development strategy is underpinned by Blackstone’s ability to secure nickel concentrate and Ta Khoa is emerging as a nickel sulphide district of enviable scale with several exploration targets yet to be tested. The TKR is being designed to have a refining capacity of 400ktpa, with feedstock provided from a combination of concentrate from the TKN and third-party feed sources. Pilot Plant testing and Definitive Feasibility Studies are underway and will continue to technically de-risk the Ta Khoa Project. At both the mine and refinery level, Blackstone is focused on a partnership model and is collaborating with groups who are focused on sustainable mining, minimising carbon footprint and implementing a fully vertically integrated supply chain.
We also own a large tenement holding at the Gold Bridge project within the BC porphyry belt in British Columbia, Canada with large scale drill targets prospective for high grade gold-cobalt copper mineralisation.
Our people are the most essential element of the business and fundamental to our success. Our culture at Blackstone is one of a shared purpose, we strive for excellence contributing our best as individuals and teams within the broader community, to deliver on Blackstone’s mission. We are values driven and embrace and encourage an inclusive, diverse and flexible work environment.
