Shares of Anglesey Mining (LON: AYM) have spiked in the last hour after Labrador Iron Mines Holdings Limited, in which Anglesey has a 12% holding, released a Preliminary Economic Assessment on its 52% owned Houston Project.
Anglesey’s share price spiked over 32% to 6.75p following the announcement.
The assessment reviewed the development of the Houston and Malcolm deposits in Newfoundland and Labrador and in Quebec, Canada found that Iron ore production would amount to approximately 2 million tonnes per annum of 62% iron lump and sinter direct shipping ore.
