    As we have done in previous years, Xenith again entered a team in the Corporate Games in the Soccer 6’s Men 30+.  On the last Sunday in April, we played a number of 30 minute pool games to achieve a ranking.  After this our team were ranked 3rd and advanced to the Elimination Tournament to play the 6th team.  A  winning performance meant the team then had to play the team ranked in second.  We also won this games so progressed to the Final.  The two finalists were evenly matched and after an exhausting game, the full time score was still Nil all (0-0).  The game went to a penalty shootout and unfortunately that’s where we lost 3-2.  All our players put in a big effort but on the day, after five games in quick succession it just wasn’t quite enough but we are very proud of the teams effort.

    It is hard to believe it has been 7 weeks since our EOFY celebration! We wanted to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to join us and enjoy the day. Once again it was a great turn out, where some of us managed to network into the night…

    The industry is becoming buoyant again, large deals are being made and investment dollars are coming back in to the sector. Xenith are continuing to move with the new sentiment and grow our services offering.

    As many of you were introduced to the new UAV survey capability on the day, we are now actively flying for rehabilitation and end of month requirements at mine sites in Queensland.

    We again thank you all for coming and look forward to working with you in FY18.

    REALM Resources has updated the coal resources and reserves for its PT Katingan Ria in Indonesia in accordance with the JORC Code 2012.

    PT Katingan’s coal resources are 87.5 million tonnes, split 6.5Mt measured, 44Mt indicated and 37Mt inferred, while coal reserves are 27.4Mt.

    PT Katingan Ria coal is a typical low rank, sub-bituminous thermal coal with low sulphur and nitrogen contents and complies with the Argus Indonesian Coal Index.

    Pit optimisation was carried out on the PT Katingan Ria deposit in a previous mining and barging options study conducted by Xenith in February 2013.

    This study delineated an area of the deposit that was economical to mine at a reasonably low product coal sales price.

    The current PT Katingan Ria life of mine pit used in the recent reserves statement was within the economic mining limits.
