Analyst Insight – provided by Independent Investment Research

PYX Resources is an NSX-listed leading global producer of premium zircon. The company engages in mining and processing activities on its Mandiri mineral sands deposit in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia, which has operated since 2015. The company acquired the project during H2 2019.

Mandiri is a licensed concession covering an area of 2,032 hectares in Central Kalimantan and is devoted to the exploration of mineral sands products and the production and export of premium 65.5 grade zircon. With zircon inferred resources of 6.0 Mt, Mandiri represents the largest global zircon discovery since 2012 and the world’s fifth-largest producing mineral sands deposit. Including zircon, Mandiri’s heavy minerals inferred resources exceed 9.4 Mt, with substantial additional exploration potential across the Mandiri tenement.

The Mandiri tenement still offers substantial upside as only 46% of its area has been explored, and it is still possible to define additional resources below the water table within the area where existing resources have been defined.
