Re: On marketing drive WOW,Boulby is really small fry compared to the Sirius aim of 10Milliont onnePa,. The article for Boulby says"Output has increased to 327,000 tonnes so far this year and we are on target to hoist 450,000 by the year end.” and aiming for 3MtPa.It would be great for Sirius to publish some details on the proposed machinery they are going to use for the underground extraction. These machines are going to be something huge and computor controlled.IB

Re: W/C 25th September Hopefully Mr Fraser is penning as we speak an upbeat update for all his shareholders next week. That's when I have the next company update pencilled in.It would be nice for SXX to follow nicely in the footsteps of todays stellar rise in Velocys, UKOG;s recent rises and a few other favourable recent investments.Own due diligence.

Re: On marketing drive Hi Gary,'The more worrying point was the final sentence re takeover talks "A spokesman for Sirius said the company did not “comment on market rumours” but was involved in “commercial discussions with multiple partners” at any one time." - I hope not.'I think the phrase “commercial discussions with multiple partners” refers to a wide variety of commercial aspects, not just takeovers! It also includes work contracts, offtake agreements, etc. IMOIn which case, I hope they are discussing (and finalising) many such contracts at all times.ATB

Re: On marketing drive Hi GK,At first I was concerned with the 100 cutting heads per shift bit but I then went on to read that it is now down to 15 - 20 cutting heads per shift. Still a lot but clearly it is an engineering problem that can be mitigated if not fully resolved.The more worrying point was the final sentence re takeover talks "A spokesman for Sirius said the company did not “comment on market rumours” but was involved in “commercial discussions with multiple partners” at any one time." - I hope not.Gary

Re: Chips and the Chip Shed "Doesn't ex Beardie slightly risk being "overburdened with debt" given his current intent to finance the rest of the capex with debt rather than equity? "Yes a risk recognised Ahab, with: "Something for us to look forward to??? :->>" ...Always read the bottom line eh! Fortescue got a pounding over that one, will Sirius at some point? Can't rule that out.There is no cost free route, but debt - especially if they can get a large chunk underwritten by Gov - is the least impactful for the woebegotten shareholder.GK.

Re: Chips and the Chip Shed Lkh,Sirius supply Poy4 as either powdered, chip or granules as customer required. It can then be blended with Nitrogen and phosphorus products as required.[link]

Re: Chips and the Chip Shed UTP,"you do know that woolyback is referring to Boulby as far as leaving the finnings underground don't you?"Silly me! For some reason I'd got Woodsmith in my head and failed to appreciate that we were talkin' about Boulby! And, as the last poster says, there's God knows how many miles of tunnel at Boulby into which any useless gangue that falls through the sieve could be shunted.I'm not clear on how much of SXX's product is gonnae be in the form of chips and how much is gonnae be granulated. Presumably the latter stuff is more valuable as you get the bang for your buck more quickly once you spread it I dunno?Also, do I correctly understand that Poly4 somehow magically boosts the effect of the N and the P in NPK?LKH on the flybridge gives self a savage kicking

Re: Chips and the Chip Shed 'Erm, I am not myself a hairy-arsed miner but won't there be a massive problem of storing the stuff that falls through the sieve underground? Don't it swell compared to its state when it's sat in an untouched layer?'LKH - There's always logistical merit in avoiding moving and disposing of any unnecessary material. As you say, the mined material will be about 1.7X the volume of the original strata and therefore, mathematically, the 'waste' would need to be less than 50% of the extract which, of course, will be the case. Logistically, you would lift and screen all of the extract, disposing of substandard material above ground in the first instance to create the initial storage cavern.

Re: Chips and the Chip Shed LKH, you do know that woolyback is referring to Boulby as far as leaving the finnings underground don't you?, and if you understand that then shirley you realize how many miles of empty tunnels they have to store said finnings in, I'd imagine they could swell quite a fair bit and it still wouldn't cause any strorage problems after 40+ years of tunneling!!!.UTP.

Re: Chips and the Chip Shed Maybe that is what they want Boulby for?
