VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — 27 June 2018 – Tango Mining Limited (“Tango” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update for the period of 1 December, 2017 to 31 May, 2018 on its three Operation and Maintenance of Coal Processing Plant agreements with Exxaro Coal Central Propriety Limited (ECC). The agreements for the Dorstfonein East (DCME), Dorstfonein West (DCMW) and Forzando (FZN) coal mines are handled via Tango’s South African subsidiary, Kwena Mining Projects (Pty) Ltd.

HEALTH, SAFETY & ENVIRONMENT:

  • Kwena had no reportable incidents recorded on ECC mines for the six month period
  • A Safety Award was given to all ECC Operations and all its contractors for achieving a full financial year without any fatalities throughout the group.

PRODUCTION:

Six month ROM and Discard throughput for the three ECC operations:

Actual (t) Budget (t) Variance (t) Comments
DCME 1,102,850 1 271 018 (168 168) Coal supply issues from Opencast Pit
DCMW 513 011 510 340 2 671
FZN 1 559 733 1 666 749 (107 016) Coal supply problem from underground

HUMAN RESOURCES:

Number of full time employees: 231

Number of Contract employees: 23

AWARDS & RECOGNITIONS:

Bongani Vilakazi – awarded CTC (Colliery Training Centre) Advanced Coal Preparation Student of the Year.  Overall result 90%.

The following Kwena employees received recognition awards from ECC management for outstanding work carried out during projects with no incidents or injuries recorded during the implementation of the projects:

Dorstfontein West:  J Gallagher (General Engineering Superintendent), S Coombe (Plant Manager)

Dorstfontein East:  J Shoobert (Electrical Foreman)

Forzando:  V Nel (Plant Engineer), J Coetzee (Plant Manager)

 ADDITIONAL CONVEYER INSTALLED:

An additional product conveyor was successfully installed at the DCME plant so that the washed product from the rewash of discard is stockpiled separately from the product produced from the raw ROM coal. This eliminates any product contamination and simplifies the process flow of the two products produced. In case of a shortage of raw coal supply, Tango is able to substitute the raw coal with discard and in doing so can maintain the tonnage through the plant at or close to the budgeted throughput.

TANGO RENEWS OENA MINING LICENCE FOR 9 YEARS, SOUTH AFRICA

Download as PDF

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — 16 April 2018 – Tango Mining Limited (“Tango” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, African Star Minerals (Pty) Limited, has received confirmation from the Department of Mineral Resources, Republic of South Africa, that the mining right for the Oena Diamond Mine, (“Oena” or the “Property”) has been renewed for a further period of nine (9) years. The renewal has been granted in terms of the applicable sections of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act (Act 28, 2002). Oena is 8,800 hectares in size and covers a 4.8 kilometre (“km”) wide strip along a 15 km length of the lower Orange River, Northern Cape Province in a well-established alluvial diamond-mining province known to produce high quality and large sized diamonds.

Tango also announces that it has terminated the Services Agreement for Mining and Marketing of Diamonds with Txapemba Canguba R.L (“Txapemba”), a Cooperativa Exploração Semi-Industrial de Diamantes, Republic of Angola. The termination was mutually agreed by both Tango and Txapemba. The termination is due to the limitation and failure to increase the maximum hourly production capacity of the license terms and conditions which make it unviable as a long term commercial project for Tango.

About Tango Mining Limited

Tango, via its South African subsidiaries, holds three thermal coal, metallurgical, processing plant and engineering contracts that process 6.5 Mt of coal per annum, with client Exxaro. The three projects are located within the Ogies and Highveld coalfields, Mpumalanga Province and Kliprivier coalfield, KwaZulu-Natal Province, South Africa. The Company also holds an interest in the Oena Diamond Mine, a producing alluvial diamond property located in the Northern Cape Province, South Africa. Tango also recently signed an agreement on an alluvial diamond property in Botswana called the Middlepits Project.

TANGO ADDS KIMBERLITE TO MIDDLEPITS PROJECT, BOTSWANA

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA —  7 March 2018 – Tango Mining Limited (“Tango” or the “Company”) (TSXV:TGV) is pleased to announce it has added an additional Prospecting License (“PL58”) to the Middlepits Project which hosts a kimberlite, called Kolonkwaneng. The Kolonkwaneng kimberlite, was identified by De Beers in 1977 and more recent airborne geophysics suggests it is elliptical in shape and is 127 metres (“m”) by 226 m in diameter. Bulk sampling work by De Beers recovered micro diamonds and heavy minerals that indicate the kimberlite is diamondiferous.

Both PL101 and PL58 (now collectively the “Property”) are located 470 kilometers (km) south west of Gaborone and 90 km south west of Tshabong in the Kgalagadi District, Botswana. PL58 has been added as per the same terms and conditions as previously announced on the 21 December 2018.

Metswedi Mining (Pty) Limited has advised Tango that is in the process of renewal of PL101 and it will cover approximately 429 km2. PL58 covers a total area of 2.3 km2 and is located immediately south east and adjacent to PL101. Closing of the transaction is subject to the renewal of the Property.
