Case Study

Xenith assisted KGL Resources in the development of an ore reserve in accordance with the JORC Code (2012) for their Jervois Copper project in the Northern Territory. This allowed KGL to issue a notification to the Australian Stock Exchange regarding the ore reserve. KGL was then able to utilise the reserve statement as the basis for a pre-feasibility study which was subsequently completed in late 2020. The Project Management Plan has since been given approval by the Northern Territory Government.
