SouthGobi, Winsway sign coal sales agreement

* SouthGobi to sell 3.2 mln tonnes of coal to Winsway

* SouthGobi, Winsway also sign strategic alliance deal

TORONTO Dec 6 (Reuters) - SouthGobi Resources (SGQ.TO) said on Monday it has signed a contract to sell 3.2 million tonnes of coal to Winsway Coking Coal (1733.HK) in 2011.

The two companies have also signed a strategic alliance agreement whereby SouthGobi has committed to sell at least two million tonnes of coal to Winsway annually. Under the five-year agreement, Winsway will also provide SouthGobi with priority access to its logistics assets.

SouthGobi said that it intends to deliver 800,000 tonnes of coal to Winsway in each quarter of 2011. Pricing for the coal to be sold under this contract has been agreed to for the first quarter of 2011, and will be determined by mutual agreement in advance of each subsequent quarter, the company said in a statement.

The company, which produces coal from its Ovoot Tolgoi mine in Southern Mongolia, did not disclose pricing terms related to the contract.

SouthGobi began mining coal in 2008, and sold 1.3 million tonnes of coal in 2009. The company is on track to sell about 2.5 million tonnes in 2010.

Shares of South Gobi were up 50 Canadian cents at C$12.60 on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Monday morning.

Central Asia Metals' Ereen Licenses Hit

December 8 (Central Asia Metals) Central Asia Metals (AIM:CAML), a mining exploration and development company focused on base and precious metals in Central Asia, would like to provide an update on the status of its Ereen licence located in Mongolia.

CAML has, within its portfolio of mineral properties in Mongolia, three areas of mineral interest, including Handgait, Alag Bayan and Ereen.  The Ereen gold deposit comprises five (5) mining licences; three (3) of which have been included in the list of 254 licences, referenced above.  The licences listed include MV-15617, MV-15618 and MV-15619 which were transferred to mining licences in June 2010 with a 30 year term. Two smaller mining licences, 2616A and 4265A, have not been included in the list and it is estimated that these contain approximately 50% of the known mineral resource. The remaining 50% lies predominantly within licences MV-15618 and MV-15619 from which the Company has been left with 19.4 hectares and 22.3 hectares of ground area respectively.  These areas correspond very closely to the plan area of resource within the listed licence areas for revocation.  CAML is actively pursuing clarification from the government authorities that the areas not included in the potential cancellation are indeed intended for continued ownership with CAML.

CAML owns 85% of the Mongolian entity Zuun Mod UUL LLC which holds the rights to the Ereen mining licences.  Ereen comprises a hardrock gold occurrence with a JORC compliant resource of 19.9 million tonnes at a gold grade of 1.2 gram per tonne for 773koz of contained gold at a 0.5 gram per tonne cut off, as defined by Wardell Armstrong International in the Competent Persons Report (CPR) in the CAML IPO admission document of 30 September 2010.  As the Ereen deposit is mostly of hardrock origin and not considered to be 'placer', the Company has lodged official letters with the relevant authorities disputing the inclusion of the three Ereen licences in this recently published list. In the CPR the Company had indicated that only $0.2-$0.8 million would be spent during 2011 on exploration and evaluation expenditure at Ereen and CAML will continue to comply with its mining licence obligations.

Asgat to be main issue at Mongolrostsvetmet meeting next week

December 7 ( The Executive Council of the Mongolia-Russia joint venture Mongolrostsvetmet will meet in Moscow on December 13, for the first time since May.

The most significant issue on the agenda is likely to be the Asgat silver deposit which has 3,000 tons of reserve. Mining the strategically significant depositt, however, has several problems. Its geology is difficult, the silver is blended with other elements, transportation and other infrastructure have not been developed and the location is remote. Environmental aspects will need careful consideration before mining can begin as silver releases the extremely poisonous element arsenic.

There is no categorical information that Mongolrostsvetmet, established 37 years ago as a JV with Mongolia owning 51% share, holds the Asgat mine license but Russian interest has been traced to the deposit also holding copper, molybdenium, gold and silver. meeting.

Croft: Foreign investors must stay in, after getting in

November (Mongolian Mining Journal) Layton Croft, Vice President External Affairs and Corporate Citizenship, SouthGobi Resources, was one of the speakers at the Mongolian Investment Summit in Hong Kong. He did not refer to economic figures, financial charts or official data in his presentation. Instead, he used his experience of living and working in Mongolia for 15 years to offer a unique personal perspective to foreign investors. MMJ is presenting some parts of his speech

There is a lot to learn from Mongolian people – the way they look at the world, the way they think and behave, their fierce individualism and stubborn self-confidence, their industriousness and self-reliance, their willingness to try new things and take risks, and their openness and accessibility as people.

I am not an investment banker, nor an economist, nor an equities analyst – so I won't speak about commodities forecasts, equities valuations, sovereign risk, or the Chinese demand outlook for Mongolian coal. But I will talk about the equally important "softer side" of foreign investment in Mongolia, which is something I have first-hand experience with.
