Still cant get the Choco figures to stack up.The alluvial plant produces concentrate.Either sell it or pay to have it refined.Marginal business model.

Commenting today, Ed Nealon, Chairman of the Company, said: "This reporting period has been one of intense activity, as Bezant began to make operational assessments over the viability of gold and platinum production a for its Choco licences under option in Colombia. At a time when many platinum producers and miners are generally suffering from increasing costs to mine underground, our near surface operations, while not massive in scale, will target near-term production with good margins. The independent scoping study estimated total operational costs at US$768 per ounce of platinum and gold recoveries based on a 12 month pilot production project." Commenting today Bernard Olivier, Chief Executive Officer, said: "Following our gold-platinum recovery work and the results of the independent scoping study concluded post period end, we can now commence work towards first, full-scale gold-platinum recovery operations. Having now secured both an expert operating team and equipment, our objective is to begin first production of metals during Q2/Q3 2017."

Bezant Resources (BZT.L, 1.15p) – Speculative Buy Bezant has announced it has acquired a 150 tonne per hour alluvial processing plant which is being mobilised now and will be commissioned end 2Q/3Q. As result we expect first production from its Choco Gold-Platinum project during 3Q. As part of the acquisition Bezant is also getting "engineering blue prints and all technical plans, schematics and data acquired, to enable Bezant to replicate and manufacture similar processing plants”. In conjunction Bezant has signed a mining services agreement with Exumax which previously managed the exploration programme and will now manage the mining operation. The acquisition consideration is $200k upfront cash and 40 million shares depending on certain milestones. Our view: This news means Bezant is going into production for $200k cash and shares with a modern (New Zealand designed), mercury free, alluvial plant, the first of its kind to be used in Choco Province. Assuming the first plant goes well, Bezant will be in a position to roll out multiple plants across its land package in the region, with Exumax as its operating partner and a major shareholder. We look forward to Bezant updating the market as it transitions into commercial production over the next couple of months and maintain our Speculative Buy recommendation.

The initial plant has capacity of approx 2.7k per day.How many days in a year will it produce.

I estimate that 1 plant has to shift 15k t per week.

B/even is 0.17 g/t.There are 31g to a troy ounce.So how many t do they need to shift in a year to acheive b/ even.

From last weeks RNS, hope this helps. "The Choco Project's model for platinum and gold recovery operations is based on the deployment, over time, of multiple sub-US$1 million dry mining plants each designed to process up to 1,800 mg/m(3) per day with a break-even opex cost below US$800/oz of gold and platinum based upon the recent 2017 scoping study results. The Company is targeting mine development, plant acquisition and commissioning as well as first production during Q2 2017."

Bezant Resources (BZT.L, 1.20p) – Speculative Buy Bezant has published good results from phase 2 of its bulk sampling programme. For us the highlights include an average combined grade of 0.33 grams per m3 versus the scoping study's breakeven grade of 0.24 g/m3, and highest grades of 1.72 g/m3 (equivalent to 1.23g/t) from an area of virgin platinum and gold gravels. The programme also indicated that the base of the mineralised gravels are on average 18-30m deep i.e. as expected and not too deep. Apart from these depth and grade data, the most important news is that Bezant is now targeting mine development, plant acquisition and first production during 2Q17. Our view: Bezant is moving ahead with the development of its Choco Platinum-Gold Project and is targeting first production as soon as this quarter with name plate capacity in 2H17. The upfront capital is sub $1m (Bezant recently raised $1.24m) and assuming this goes well, Bezant will look to roll out multiple plants across its large Choco Province land package. Bezant is expecting costs to be in the region of $768/oz of gold and platinum which should equate to a c.30% margin at current prices (depending on the final gold-platinum split and the refining cost). Bezant is one of the very few AIM mining companies moving into production this year and we reiterate our Speculative Buy recommendation.

nicely said in other board. hopefully those buying dont get spiked and stuck , only later to know platinum project is very small and worth only less than 3m (see their previous RNS) ========== just saw this morning RNS and at first was excited about the platinum project. then I realised, the size of assets is very very small, and even production this year, will only generate less than 500k (and we raised 1m for that at huge discount!) . that's means, more placing later the year (despite one only last week) and mcap is already expensive for small asset. so, decided not to buy BZT and went to top up JLP instead, with their massive tailing project with NPV around 200m and mcap only 50m and production on the way. good luck all. dont gets in without research.

Bezant Resources Plc ("Bezant" or the "Company") Choco Alluvial Gold-Platinum Project: Phase 2 Gold & Platinum Recovery Results Bezant (AIM: BZT), the AIM quoted mineral exploration and development company, is pleased to announce the Phase 2 gold and platinum recovery results from its Choco alluvial Gold-Platinum exploration and development project located in Western Colombia (the "Choco Project"). The results are for material from within the proposed mining area of the FKJ-083 licence and the samples were taken below pit floor level from the Phase 1 exploration pit and include virgin ground. These latest results demonstrate gold ("Au") and alluvial platinum ("Pt") recoveries at grades well above the 0.17 grammes per tonne ("g/t") (238 miligrams per cubic metre ("mg/m3")) break-even point, determined by an independent scoping study, announced earlier in the year. The Company has now initiated the development of a dry mining operation and scheduled to begin mine development and production in Q2 2017. Highlights: · Independent scoping study announced on 8 March 2017 for dry mining on the Choco Project calculated a: o 0.17 grammes per tonne (238 mg/m3 ) break-even grade for combined Pt and Au · Initial Phase 2 recovery analysis for gold-platinum from the FKJ-083 licence area: o 37 individual samples in aggregate from 14 pits with a total of 23.5 m3 (32.9 tonnes) extracted and processed o Average combined volume weighted Pt and Au grade of 0.235 g/t (329 mg/m3) o Samples taken from the Phase 1 pit floor at depths between 9.5 and 17.5 metres below the surface o Highest combined grade from virgin platinum and gold bearing gravels was 1.23 g/t (1724 mg/m3) · Phase 2 work-plan summary: o Focussed on pitting, sampling and testing located, on the bottom of the Phase 1 open pit o Concentrates treated and grades established through the onsite platinum and gold recovery laboratory and offsite refining of particles below 250 microns The two principal recovery metrics used by Bezant during the assessment period were: grammes of precious metal recovered per tonne and milligrammes of precious metals per cubic metre of material. The [metric cube/cubic metre] measure has been used to assess the throughput rate of ore that can be processed by the initial dry mining plant to be developed at the Choco Project.. The Choco Project's model for platinum and gold recovery operations is based on the deployment, over time, of multiple sub-US$1 million dry mining plants each designed to process up to 1,800 mg/m3 per day with a break-even opex cost below US$800/oz of gold and platinum based upon the recent 2017 scoping study results. The Company is targeting mine development, plant acquisition and commissioning as well as first production during Q2 2017. Ed Nealon, Chairman of Bezant, today commented: "These Phase 2 recovery results demonstrate the consistent levels of gold and platinum occurring in areas previously untested for precious metals and compare favourably with our Phase 1 results that were used to verify mining data from historic operations. Grades of both platinum and gold occur at levels well above the break-even point determined by the recent INGEX scoping study commissioned by Bezant and released to the market during the first quarter of 2017. We are now in the process of foccussing on the development of our first full-scale platinum and gold production operation that we have targeted for commissioning during Q2 2017. I look forward to updating shareholders as we meet these objectives in due course. The Choco province is an extremely exciting and long established platinum and gold field and Bezant has a clear first mover advantage in applying a coordinated, cost effective recovery operation in the area which focuses on low capital expenditure and achieving attractive margins with near-term cash flow." ETC....

chipperfrd27 Mar '17 - 09:33 - 2814 of 2817 1 0 Perhaps there is a degree of 'end-of-tax-year' portfolio adjusting going on. It is fairly normal on the LSE at this time of the year. If so, it will all end soon. Chip
