Aspire Mining Gives Back To Mongolia With Medical Equipment Shipment

Aspire Mining (ASX:AKM) is giving back to the local community with its funding the cost of shipping of medical equipment and supplies to a number of Mongolian hospitals and clinics.

This is being carried out in association with The Rotary Club of Osborne Park (Rotary) and the Mongolian Red Cross Society.

The medical equipment are in excellent condition but were no longer required as the donating Western Australian hospitals have undergone upgrades.

These include x-ray machines, dialysis machines, ultra sound machines, infant incubators, defibrillators, hospital beds, wheelchairs and more.

With the assistance of the Red Cross, the equipment will be donated to an Ulaanbaatar based gynaecological clinic, the Tsetserleg Hospital and Mogoin Gol Health Clinic, both hospitals being located nearby Aspire's coal and rail projects in the Khuvsgul province.

Aspire had previously worked with Rotary to raise funds to support a team of burn surgeons from Interplast to travel to Mongolia and provide training to local Mongolian medical practitioners in April 2015.

David Paull, managing director, said:

"This recent collaboration with Rotary and the Mongolian Red Cross fits neatly into Aspire's community initiatives to improve health and wellbeing in our local communities and follows previous investments including assisting in the completion of construction of the Tsetserleg Hospital in 2012.

"We are again pleased to be involved and being able to facilitate the donation of this medical equipment to Tsetserleg Hospital and other Mongolian healthcare providers where we know it will be put to good use."

Aspire's world class coal assets could become a production reality with increasing developments in Mongolia's infrastructure space including construction of rail to service its planned mine sites.

It has partnered with major commodity trader, Noble Group, with the view to see near term production at the smaller Nuurstei Project.

The company also wholly-owns the Ovoot Project, which boasts the country's second largest coking coal Reserve with long mine life, and on top of that, displays excellent blend carrying characteristics and coking coal properties including a high rank, mid-volatiles and low ash.
