PERTH, Australia, Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bannerman Resources Limited (ASX:BMN) (NSX:BMN) (“Bannerman” or “the Company”) is pleased to report on an excellent December quarter during which the Etango Project was strongly progressed while uranium market fundamentals also substantially improved.


• Processing Optimisation Study completed

  • US$73m estimated Etango processing-related capital cost savings (+/-30%)
  • Operating costs reduced, with DFS Update to target improvements of US$3+/lb U3O8

• Membrane Study initial test work successfully completed

  • Preliminary results ready for evaluation, with early indications of positive results
  • Secondary testwork and economic evaluation underway
  • DFS Update to incorporate any confirmed cost savings

• Positive developments in uranium sector during quarter

  • Cameco Inc announced suspension of MacArthur River, world’s largest uranium mine
  • KazAtomProm, world’s largest uranium producer, announced 20% reduction in forecast production

Bannerman’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Brandon Munro, said, “The December quarter yielded excellent improvements to the Etango Project’s projected economics with the Processing Optimisation Study confirming significant reductions in estimated capital costs and opportunities for operating cost reductions.  The Bannerman team immediately built on this progress with an innovative Membrane Study that has delivered strong preliminary results.  The timing of these achievements could not be better, with both Cameco and KazAtomProm announcing substantial curtailments in uranium supply for 2018.”
