From Motley Fool:
Mongolia is where they have their coal concentrations in the Ulaan Ovoo and Chandgana projects. Ulaan Ovoo has over 200 million tons of measured and indicated coal at a 20-year mine life and a projected 10Mt per year (by 2014) mining rate. Chandgana, however, has an estimated ONE POINT TWO BILLION TONS of thermal coal. Did I mention that these projects are in Mongolia? For the geographically impaired, it borders China, the world's largest consumer of coal. The Mongolian Ministry of Nature and the Environment has approved a 600MW coal fired power plant near the Chandgana project with the ultimate goal of building a series of power plants with a total capacity of 4200MW. It also has a significant infrastructure nearby, including railway and paved highway.
In Canada, it has several metals projects. Wellgreen project is Nickel, Copper, Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium. It has a range of 77 to 254 million tons at .26% to .38% nickel, .26% to .36% copper, and .55 to .85 grams/ton platinum and palladium. Lynn Lake is the nickel mine with 22.9 million tons of M&I at .57% Nickel and .30% copper (262 million pounds of Nickel and 138 million pounds of Copper). Other Canadian projects include the Titan Vanadium-Titanium-Iron project and the Okeover Copper-Moly project.
