Voyager: Non Renounceable Entitlement Issue & CEO Appointment
June 15, Voyager Resources Limited (ASX:VOR) --
Voyager Resources Limited (“Company”) is pleased to announce an underwritten non renounceable entitlement issue of up to 446,373,854 options at an issue price of 1 cent each (“Offer”) to raise approximately $4.464 million before costs.
This Offer to shareholders will be on the basis of one (1) option for every three (3) shares held in the Company at the record date. The options will have an exercise price of $0.03 expiring on 31/12/2014.
The Offer will be fully underwritten by CPS Securities (subject to normal commercial terms) and will be made pursuant to a prospectus to be lodged at ASIC in the near future (“Prospectus”).
The placement will allow all shareholders the opportunity to maintain exposure to the significant upside presented by Voyager’s Copper and Gold projects in Mongolia. Mongolia remains open for business and supportive of foreign investment and the Companies management team have a highly successful track record of exploring and operating in country.
Funds raised under the entitlement issue will primarily be used to focus on additional drilling programmes and the application of a mining license at the Company’s KM Project in Mongolia (as per Table 1 below). Additional expenditure will also be allocated towards the Company’s Daltiin Ovor and Khongor Projects.
The Company is now nearing completion of a study aimed at reviewing the extensive drilling, geology and geophysical database generated over the last 12 months. This includes over 50,000 metres of drilling which has highlighted some of the most promising drilling results in Mongolia since the discovery of the Giant Oyu Tolgoi Copper Deposit. Completion of the current entitlement issue will allow the Company to continue its active exploration programmes at the KM Project, but with a more focussed and careful approach.

In line with the Companies refocussing of its exploration efforts the Company has appointed the current GM Marketing Mr Joe Burke to the newly created position of Chief Executive Officer effective immediately.
Mr Burke has over 22 years experience in business operations, management and project development within the Asia-Pacific region.
Amongst his previous roles Mr Burke worked for Hunnu Coal and was instrumental in the $490M takeover of that company last year by Banpu Plc.
In a time of weak global markets and falling share prices, Voyager remains in a position of strength with an enviable land position in Mongolia, a highly experienced management team and a focused strategy for strong growth. I will be personally participating in the entitlement issue and I would encourage all shareholders to do likewise.
Prophecy Coal drives Chandgana process forward, 600 MW plant to go a long way in addressing Mongolian power deficit
June 14 (Proactive Investors) Prophecy Coal Corp. (TSE:PCY) forecasts aggressive growth ahead as the company plans to bring its 600 megawatt (MW) Chandgana power project in central Mongolia online by the first quarter of 2016, helping to relieve a major ongoing and growing power deficit in the country.
The project, for which the company has already officially submitted the power purchase agreement (PPA) to the federal government, would be the first thermal coal power plant in the country in over 20 years.
According to a company statement, the official submission followed "many months of work" with a designated working group of more than 20 government members.
The next step will be to reach an agreement on tariff, followed by execution of the PPA. The company is seeking an off-take deal, under which the government agrees to buy power from the plant at a specified rate during that time, subject to adjustments for inflation-related and certain other cost increases.
Greg Hall, a director of Prophecy Coal , says there are already three "Soviet-era" coal power plants within Mongolia, but all are "heavily polluting", and suffer from frequent disruptions due to an over-taxed power grid.
"The power deficit is becoming much, much worse," says Hall, "and the Chandgana power plant will go a long way to addressing this."
The large power plant, which will be equipped with "the latest technology" in terms of clean coal energy, is expected to be close to what one would find in a modern North American natural gas power plant, Hall says.
"The plant will not only address the power shortage, but also the terrible pollution problem."
Prophecy is actively driving the process forward, and has recently signed a co-operation agreement with the Energy Authority (EA) of Mongolia, another step toward getting the plant up and running in the next four years. The EA is the agency that implements governmental policy in the power and energy sector of Mongolia.
The co-operation agreement covers the basic rights and obligations of Prophecy as the seller and the National Electricity Transmission Grid Company of Mongolia (NETGCO) as the purchaser of energy.
The EA confirmed the need to purchase the net electric output of the plant to satisfy the electricity energy demands of the country’s central and eastern regions.
As such, the company said that the plant will supply electricity to the central and eastern energy systems in Mongolia, with an expected 100 MW net electric output starting from the first quarter of 2016, up to 200 MW from the third quarter of 2016, 300 MW from the first quarter of 2017, and 400 MW from the third quarter of 2017.
At the start-up date in 2016, Hall says the plant will only be able to meet about two thirds of the country's deficit, leaving the government to seek additional power sources.
For example, the power needs of the Oyu Tolgoi mine in Mongolia owned by Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO) (LON:RIO) and Ivanhoe Mines (TSE:IVN) (NYSE:IVN) will require the companies to purchase electricity from China for the first five years of production beginning in 2013.
Prophecy plans on increasing output from its Chandgana plant from 2017 to 2020 by adding 3,600 MW of capacity, selling excess power to Chinese markets and to industrial users, who typically pay a higher rate than governments. The initial life of the plant is estimated to be around 30 years.
The Chandgana coal property consists of three licenses: Chandgana Tal, which has a measured resource of 141 million tonnes and includes two licenses, and Khavtgai Uul – which contains one license and is located in the southwestern end of the basin – and has a measured resource of 509 million tonnes and indicated resource of 539 million tonnes.
Coal for the Chandgana plant will be sourced from the company's Chandgana deposit, for which it has obtained all necessary permits and licenses to initiate production.
Regarding financing, Hall says the company has had discussions with a number of the major energy players in the business, as well as with large Asian coal companies. Discussions with other interested parties are also in progress.
"The execution of the final power purchase agreement will make the Chandgana project bankable, and after this, Prophecy will enter into firm discussions with potential joint venture partners," Hall adds.
Though Hall cannot disclose the price it is negotiating with the government for the power purchase agreement, he says it is competitive and in line with current rates in North America.
The EA will monitor the Chandgana power plant construction process to ensure the power plant is constructed within Mongolian regulations and approved technical and design specifications.
Prophecy also holds the licenses and owns the mining equipment of the Ulaan Ovoo coal mine, which lies in the northern part of Mongolia, and is within close proximity to the Russian border.
The property, which is already in production and is supplying coal to two major coal-fired plants in the north, consists of "good quality thermal coal", says Hall, and has an expected mine-life of over 20-years, and an efficient strip ratio of 1.8:1 for the near term.
The Ulaan Ovoo deposit hosts a measured resource of 174 million tonnes and has an indicated resource of 34 million tonnes, of which 20.7 million tonnes are classified as a reserve.
Recently, the company announced that it will sell 22,100 tonnes of thermal coal from its Ulaan Ovoo mine to a local, direct reduced iron (DRI) manufacturing plant.
DRI product is one of the chief raw materials in steel-making as it has higher qualities and advantages compared to scrap irons and pig irons. DRI products typically sell in China at over US$300 a tonne.
Prophecy's "high quality thermal coal" is ideal for DRI, which is also known as sponge iron.
The company said the undisclosed buyer has indicated that it would eventually like to increase the supply from Prophecy to 300,000 tonnes on an annual basis.
Hall says there is market demand to warrant doubling current production at Ulaan Ovoo, which can be done without further capital investment.
Looking ahead, the company continues to make progress on opening the Zheltura border crossing - 17 kilometres from its Ulaan Ovoo mine - to facilitate coal export to Russia, which would increase the total demand for coal from the Ulaan Ovoo mine.
"With the opening of this crossing, Russian trucks could potentially come directly into Mongolia and load at Ulaan Ovoo's mine mouth, eliminating a major component of our costs and allowing us to sell very competitively to Russia," Hall affirms.
When asked about the new foreign investment act in Mongolia that recently passed, Hall says he is not concerned and feels Prophecy is in a position to benefit from the passage of that act.
"The act is similar to Canada's in that it gives the government the chance to review transactions over a certain size and allows the process to be more transparent.
"This isn't a negative - governments should be involved so every party is familiar with the rules."

Mongolia may be a model to others
From Mr John P. Finigan.
June 8 (FT) Sir, As the newly anointed “über-optimist” cited by David Pilling in his article “Whoah there: Mongolia is not yet the new Qatar” (May 31) may I first amplify the rationale underpinning the validity of my comparison of the pace and nature of the respective economic development of both countries: an analysis he refutes in somewhat caustic fashion. High quality global journalism requires investment.
As chief executive of Qatar National Bank and concomitantly as adviser to the minister of finance during Qatar’s years of formative development from 1995 onwards and since 2007 as CEO of Golomt Bank, Mongolia’s leading bank, I have enjoyed a unique vantage point at the heart of their common exponential development.
In the past five years, notwithstanding the global financial crisis, Mongolia’s gross domestic product has grown by 128 per cent rising in dollar terms from $4.03bn to $7.88bn, an achievement worthy of some recognition.
Second, in addressing your Asia editor’s pervasive theme of underlying negativity, Mongolia is indeed a young democracy still striving to emerge from relative poverty, which faces many of the development challenges he identifies. These are currently exacerbated by the slowdown in the (perhaps misnamed?) advanced economies. Nonetheless, prior negative experiences elsewhere should be viewed merely as prologue not destiny. In common with all other nations, Mongolia is a far from perfect country, merely an emergent market nation faced with a unique combination of challenge and opportunity.
Mongolia’s political leaders (both in government and on both sides of the political spectrum engaged in this month’s parliamentary elections) remain cognisant of those combined elements of challenge and opportunity. They and others tangentially involved in supporting their endeavours are, for the most part, guided by an unstinting commitment to do their best to achieve material progress as a model of regional development while eliminating poverty, improving welfare and striving to eradicate rent-seeking and corruption.
Our leaders are subliminated neither by the fear against which your writer cautions nor the apparent hubris he propounds from his initial transitory exposure to our nation and its governance.
Should Mongolia successfully achieve the positive social and economic transformation that its citizens merit then, rather than striving for other contemporary national comparatives, future assessments of the country’s progress may perhaps echo Pericles’ encomium to Athens (in somewhat more propitious times, 2,600 years ago) in declaiming: “We shall be as a model to others and a follower of none.”
John P. Finigan, Chief Executive, Golomt Bank of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

ABOUT FOREIGN DEBTS OF MONGOLIA
Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, June 13 /MONTSAME/ The government of Mongolia plans to reduce the external debts to 80 per cent, and the size of loans from foreign countries to 50 per cent in 2012-2014 stage by stage.
It has been reflected in a report of Mongolia's economic, financial and budgetary situations which is issued by the Ministry of Finance. According to this report, the government will reduce an amount of debts by 50 per cent by the year 2014.
In addition, the government intends to develop the market of domestic debts in several phases so as to provide the governmental financial needs with the lowest size of expenditures, and to make up 50 per cent of the financial resources from domestic debt market. These matters are reflected in the middle-term strategic document on debt management for 2012-2014 adopted in this year. This document also reflects ways of realizing the goals and structure of debts.
As of today, the debt crisis pressure of Mongolia was 3-11 per cent between 2008 and 2011, and it was three per cent in the last year. It means that the debt crisis pressure is considerable low.
By end of the previous year, the Mongolia's government used foreign loans of MNT 257.9 billion granted by donor countries and international financial organizations. Then, foreign debts of MNT 76.9 billion has been repaid, and the balance of the government's credit repayment was MNT 2,650.9 billion at the end of 2011.
In 2011, the size of external debts was equal to 28.3 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product by the current price. Thus, Mongolia is considered as a country with a low-risk of foeign debts in frames of the criteria by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank (WB).

NEW 210MW THERMAL SUBSTATION IS TO BE BUILT NEXT TO THE IV THERMAL POWER PLANT, ULAANBAATAR
June 15 (InfoMongolia.com) The foundation laying ceremony for the construction of the new thermal substation with 210 MW capacities next to the IV Thermal Power Plant (TPP) was held on June 14, 2012.
Team of scientists and researchers from the Power Engineering School of the Mongolian University of Science and Technology (MUST) conducted the feasibility study of the substation to be built with the financing from the state budget.
With commissioning of the new substation to operate shoulder to shoulder with the central heating network of Mongolia will be enabled to keep up with the increasing demand on heat supply and the stations will be given with an opportunity to operate efficiently using its full capacity by following sufficient operating mode of heat transmission at any time and any season. Also, pleasant conditions will be created for improving the turbine operations by increasing the utilization degree as with the on stream of the substation maneuvering of the heat transmission by central heating network and the substation will be enabled too.
An initiation to build a substation with a capacity of 210 MW with a steam driven prime mover using its own internal potential recourses was proposed by the IV Thermal Power Plant and was promoted by the Ministry of Mineral Recourses and Energy.
The new substation will be a core stone in connecting the residential districts “Orbit”, “Bayangol”, “MUST” and “Moscow Complex” that are planned to be built in the area named Bayangolyn Am, on the east side of “Nairamdal” International Children’s Camp Road.
The Ministry of Mineral Recourses and Energy called for an open bid earlier this year of 2012, where “Alliance-Tech” LLC has been chosen to be the executor of the construction work of the substation that will be on stream by 2013.
As seen from the surveys done in the last few years, the central heating network was supplying heat measured in relevance with the outside temperature maximum of -27°C. Currently, the IV Thermal Power Plant generates 662 GCal/hour heat. The full capacity of the IV TPP is evaluated at 1185 GCal/hour. In January 2012, the station dealt with its most intense load was 717 GCal/hour in its entire history since it became operational in 1987. Thus, with the new substation, the IV TPP will be enabled to receive extra 280-310 GCal/hour heat generation load.
Foundations of the IV Thermal Power Plant, the state owned company was first laid in 1979. The first unit was put into operation in 1983. Since 1987 it has been operating with a project capacity of 380 MW. As a result of an extension made in 1988-1990, the capacity increased by 160 MW, 2007, 2009 2 x 20 MW and now it has an installed capacity of 580 MW electricity and 1185 GCal/heat generation.
In Mongolia, temperatures fall as low as -40°C in midwinter. The heat and electricity generated by IV Thermal Power Plant in Ulaanbaatar is an important lifeline for the people living there. This is the largest coal fired power plant in Mongolia and it generates 70% of the electricity for Mongolia's central energy system and 65% of the heat energy used by Ulaanbaatar district heating system.
Also, the long awaited the V Thermal Power Plant's construction is to start in 2013. The Government has decided to build the V TPP next to the existing III TPP and the facility will have six furnaces, five turbines, and the capacity to produce 300 MW CHP (combined heat and power) of electricity, and heat at a rate of 1101 GCal/hour. The plan is to finish the first part of the V TPP in 2015 and start the second part and finish by 2020. The plant will have capacity to produce 820 MW of electricity using the latest technology. Two small eco friendly factories will be built near the power station to recycle the waste from the factory.
