Location and Surrounds
The Canegrass tenement package is located approximately 60km south-east of Mt Magnet and 15km south-west of Atlantic Limited’s Windimurra Vanadium Project, in the emerging Mid-West Iron Ore Province of Western Australia. The tenement package comprises six granted exploration licences.
In May 2009, Flinders reached an agreement with Maximus Resources Ltd (Maximus) to purchase the Canegrass Project, with Maximus retaining a 2% net smelter royalty. Flinders carried out due diligence on the area and determined that it is prospective for gabbro hosted magnetite iron ore deposits.
Flinders announced a maiden iron ore/vanadium resource at Canegrass in August 2011. With only 5% of prospective stratigraphy explored, there is upside potential to increase the iron ore/vanadium resources.

Note: See Competent Persons Statement below in relation to these Mineral Resources.
Drilling has identified a continuous layered stratigraphy of more than 1,100m vertical thickness – lower units contain elevated vanadium grades with lower titanium and produce an attractive iron and vanadium grade.
