Cann Global Limited (previously Queensland Bauxite Ltd) has been focused on defining significant bauxite resources with a view to developing a bauxite mining and export operation that may include direct shipping ore (DSO).

The Company has been focused on targeting long-life operations and positioning itself to participate in the growth of the bauxite sector. Following the completion of a comprehensive study, mapping and review process, the Company acquired projects that offer significant prospects for the attainment of gibbsitic bauxite with a low reactive silica content close to key road, rail and port infrastructure.

The Company’s Bauxite Projects include interests in:

  • the South Johnstone Project located in Queensland; and
  • the New England Bauxite Project located in the New South Wales, (the Bauxite Projects).

South Johnstone Bauxite Project

Close to Port, Infrastructure and the End User

  • South Johnstone Bauxite Project located near Innisfail, North Queensland
  • Covers 260 km2 of prospective bauxite terrain
  • Bauxite discoveries estimated at 35 million tonnes
  • Deposits situated less than 20km from Mourilyan port
  • Sealed road network runs through project area
  • Access for exploration granted
  • Application for mineral development submitted
  • Negotiations commenced with potential end users

Targeting Premium DSO Bauxite

  • Bauxite is a red-brown laterized saprolite developed on basalt
  • Gibbsitic bauxite with a low reactive silica content up to 4m thick
  • Deposits lying at surface with minimal overburden
  • Application for mineral development submitted
  • Preparations underway for trial mining at Camp Creek discovery
  • Landholder consultation has been undertaken and favourable response received

Significant Exploration Upside

  • The historic exploration drilling reported by Carpentaria  gave QBL a high level of confidence of achieving significant exploration success
  • QBL exploration drilling continues to define JORC compliant resources

New England Bauxite Project

Close to Regional Centre and Transport

  • New England Bauxite Project located near Inverell, New South Wales
  • Exploration Licence overs 250 km2 of prospective bauxite terrain
  • Deposits situated less than 15km from proposed Pacific East Rail Line (Australian Infrastructural Developments)
  • Sealed road network runs through project area with rail link to coastal port (proposed completion date 2023)
  • Access for exploration granted
  • Negotiations commenced with potential end users

Targeting Premium DSO Bauxite

  • Bauxite is a red-brown laterized saprolite developed on basalt
  • Gibbsitic bauxite with a low reactive silica content up to 12m thick (average thickness 4.8m)
  • Deposits lying at surface with minimal overburden
  • Landholder consultation has been undertaken and favourable response received

Significant Exploration Upside

  • In 1944, NSW Government geologists F.W. Booker and F.N. Hanlon reported on numerous bauxite deposits in the Inverell area, then in 1954 H.B Owen published another favourable report
  • Historic discoveries by the NSW government gave QBL a high level of confidence of achieving significant exploration success in the New England region
  • QBL exploration drilling builds on discovery tonnages and defines JORC compliant resources
