NASSCO Launches New Eco Tanker for SEA-Vista

first_imgzoom Californian shipbuilder General Dynamics NASSCO christened and launched the 50,000 dwt Constitution, the sixth ship in a series of eight eco-friendly tankers being built at its San Diego-based shipyard, on August 27.The 610-foot-long Constitution is an LNG-conversion-ready product tanker with a 330,000 barrel cargo capacity.The Constitution was built for SEA-Vista, a partnership between SEACOR Holdings Inc. and Avista Capital Partners, and will be operated by U.S.-based shipping company Seabulk Tankers.In May 2016, NASSCO held a keel laying ceremony for the Liberty, one of three ECO Class tankers under the same construction contract with SEA-Vista.The construction and operation of the new ECO Class tankers are aligned with the Jones Act, requiring that ships carrying cargo between U.S. ports be built in U.S. shipyards. Construction on the Liberty began in October 2015.The new tankers, designed by DSEC, a subsidiary of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) of Busan, South Korea, are a continuation of the ECO MR Tanker design, which includes a Ballast Water Treatment System.last_img read more

Substantial exploration target for key deposit at Sandstone gold project WA

first_imgAn Exploration Target of 24 Mt to 34 Mt at 1.1g/t to 1.4g/t Au, comprising between 0.9 Moz and 1.5 Moz of gold has been estimated between 140 and 700 m depth for the Two Mile Hill tonalite deeps deposit at Middle Island’s Sandstone gold project in Western Australia. The potential quantity and grade of the Exploration Target is conceptual in nature, as there has been insufficient exploration to estimate a Mineral Resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the estimation of a Mineral Resource. The estimated Exploration Target follows the incorporation of results from diamond core hole MSDD156, which generated a gold intercept of 508.3 m at 1.38g/t Au, including 160 m at 2.31g/t Au. The target confirms the presence of a substantial and ubiquitously mineralised system measuring ~250 m in strike and up to 90 m in width at surface, which is mineralised to at least 713 m depth and remains open beneath this level.Within the Exploration Target, broader, sub-horizontal zones of higher grade mineralisation include approximate true width intercepts of 22 m at 5.95 g/t, 37 m at 4.46 g/t, 50 m at 2.71 g/t, 13 m at 6.39g/t and 11 m at 6.89 g/t Au.The new target, along with encouraging results derived from recent metallurgical and mineralogical test work, increases the potential for bulk underground mining beneath the proposed open-pit cutback on the Two Mile Hill tonalite deposit.Formal resource updates for both the Two Mile Hill tonalite deeps and BIF deposits are being prepared by an independent consultant prior to completing the underground mining concept study.last_img read more
