Every Drop Counts

Dear Reader,
Firstly, we are happy to bring you an updated Kura Minerals website at outlining the key Kura services that are now fully running out of our headquarters in Santiago with the support of our global team.
It is World Water Week, and coincidentally Chile has recently seen an increasing focus on water usage and environmental impact from the mining sector. Globally, we see how developments in regulations can inspire water infrastructure development and drive the private and public sector to save costs, yet also cause disruption whilst companies adjust processes. It is important to make these considerations before investing, and to observe the experiences of other players in the jurisdictions in which you operate. Below we provide a brief insight into the topic of water in Chile's mining space and compare to global developments.

Finally, the project of the week is a nice Copper number for you to feast your eyes on.
Have a great week ahead!
You read it right, 85m @ 4.9% Cu intercept !!

In the Andes of Northern Chile this Advanced exploration Cu project with over 15,000m of drilling awaits

Water Management in Chile

>> Changing Regulations: Chile's water authority is proposing new restrictions to extraction of water which would affect operations of BHP at Escondida and Albemarle and SQM. The authority is revising the existing water code as well as working to create a new water reserve which would rule out water usage for mining operations from the existing source. The alteration raises concern for lithium production especially as the majors in Chile play a huge role in global supply. Instead mining companies will have to find ways to reduce water consumption.

>> Case in Point: An anticipated lithium project set for development in Chile, Sala Maricunga, has been halted by community opinion for not showing consideration for water usage and local ecosystem. To read the article in English, please click here or Spanish here.

>> A Global Comparison: Although a little outdated, this 2014 report from Colombia University provides interesting examples on how countries around the world are managing water consumption in the mining industry, click here to read the full report.

Last week Kura led a site visit in Northern Chile for investors to showcase one of our now 90+ projects in the Kura Portfolio.
Since Kura's beginnings, the Mineral Portfolio has significantly matured with projects hosting a variety of minerals beyond Cu, from Li, to Co, Au or Fe. Plus the portfolio also includes previously producing mines in care and maintenance, advanced projects, drill-ready projects and even greenfield challenges. Furthermore, the project owners range from individuals to large mining companies. Click on the button below to browse.
