Jul 27, 2011 The Resources were compiled using a cut-off grade established on a tonne value of 41$ (open-pit model) and 66$ (underground model) based on the current estimation of the resource and market conditions. The tonne value considers a 64% recovery for lithium and a 70% recovery for tantaluM.

Cut-Off grade is the minimum grade required in order for a mineral or metal to be economically mined (or processed). Material found to be above this grade is considered to be ore, while material below this grade is considered to be waste. Although in a variety of units can be used, the cut-off grade is usually expressed as
cut-off grade plays an important role in mining production. Cut-off grade is defined (Taylor 1985) that it is used to discriminate ore and rock. From the perspective of economics, it is a grade value which makes profit and cost equal in mining. When useful components grade in mining ore is higher than or equal the cut-off grade, it should be as
May 25, 2018 Cutoff grade is defined as the grade that is normally used to discriminate between ore and waste within a given orebody. Although the definition of cutoff grade is very precise, the choice of a cutoff grade policy to be used during an exploitation of a deposit is not. Use of simply calculated breakeven cutoff grades during the production will ...

Titanium-Vanadium, Gold, Tin-Tantalum-Tungsten, Rare Earths and Hydrocarbons A feasibility study on Musongati nickel deposit (150 Mt ore reserves at 1.6 %Ni at a cut-off grade 0.8% Ni) is completed and an exploitation permit is granted since 2014. Exploration is being carried by small companies and some
The milling cut-off grade for this operation is calculated to be 0.30g/t. It means that a tonne of ore with 0.3g/t can be sent to the mill and be expected to generate a small amount of profit. Ten percent dilution in this mine will reduce the grade of ore from 0.3g/t to 0.28g/t which is below cut-off grade and will not be able to return a profit.
Feb 14, 2020 The just-released interim Measured, Indicated and Inferred MRE for Kathleen Valley comprises 139Mt 1.3% Li2O and 140ppm Ta2O5 (reported above a cut-off grade of 0.55% Li2O) for 1.8Mt of contained lithium oxide and 43Mlbs of contained tantalite. Significantly, 58% of the updated Mineral Resource is classified as Measured or Indicated.
The mineral resource has an Effective Date of March 6 th, 2012 and a cut-off grade 1.25% REO. The CaF2 grade (i.e. fluorspar) is approximated from F (2.055 conversion factor) supported by mineralogy. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Feb 18, 2021 In some instances, the cut-off grade of the primary commodity determines the cut-off grade of coproducts. For example, at the Dotson Zone of the Bokan Mountain site in Alaska the reported cut-off grade is 0.4 percent TREO. The cut-off grade for all commodities is reported as 0.4 percent TREO. In some instances, the reported commodity is a ...
Cut-offs around 150-200 pp is an industry standard to look out for, below this, you may be wasting your time. The above comments are all true. On alluvial/eluvial - overburden depth is critical. On hard rock, the shape of the geology is critical.

May 15, 2018 A cut-off grade is proposed, and then the parameters of the deposit are calculated, and tested against economic scenarios. If it fails the process is started again with a different cut-off grade. In some cases it may never work. In summary, cut-off grade is one of the most important, yet least understood variables for making an investment decision.
Anomalous lithium and tantalum mineralisation occurred in all drill holes where pegmatite was intersected. Significant intersections (0.3% Li 2 O cut-off grade) are tabulated below.

Jun 19, 2020 The mineral resource estimate for above 3% cut-off was 19.9 million tonnes at 4.90% REO, for 980,000 tonnes of contained REO. Mineral reserve for the weathered bastnsite zone at a 1% REO lower grade cut-off was estimated to be 21.3 million tonnes at 4.75% REO for 1,010,000 tonnes contained REO.
When the NMR model is applied to the 1.6% TREO cut-off grade for the Basal Zone used in the previous technical study (Wardrop, March 2009) the equivalent NMR value is approximately CND$500/tonnes. PFS operating cost estimates average CND$260/tonnes, and this has been applied as a break-even cut-off value for the resource estimate.
