SummaryThe mine area is a shallow open pit with the minimum impact of active extracting areas and a site reclamation that follows the ore extraction.
Matamulas Project is located within the province of Castilla-La Mancha, in south-central Spain (around 18 km from Valdepeña).
Matamulas Project is a placer project hosting monazite nodules with low thorium and high REO content with low radioactive elements (Th and U).
The project followed the mandatory system for the classification of minerals Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves according to the levels of confidence in geological knowledge and technical and economic considerations that the JORC Code provides.
The goal under the JORC code was the verification, delimitation and qualification of the resources – reserves. The geological interpretation used in the Mineral Resource estimation is considered robust and representative of the geological knowledge currently available.
Mineral resources are not reserves until they have demonstrated economic viability based on a feasibility studyProject ManagerRaquel Vergara
