Danakali Signs 10-year Potash Offtake Agreement with EuroChem

Australia’s Danakali has come to an offtake agreement with EuroChem Trading for up to 100 percent of Module I production from its Colluli potash project.

Danakali (ASX:DNK) has come to a binding take-or-pay offtake agreement with EuroChem Trading for the acquisition, sale and distribution of up to 100 percent of Module I sulfate of potash (SOP) from Colluli Mining Share Company’s (CMSC) Colluli potash project.

CMSC is a 50/50 joint venture between Danakali and the Eritrean National Mining Corporation, and Colluli is located in Eritrea in East Africa.

Through the agreement, EuroChem is set to take, pay, market and distribute at least 87 percent of Colluli Module I SOP production. Sales are to take place through EuroChem’s international channels, while the company will retain the option to sell up to 13 percent through alternative sales channels.

“We could not be happier with this result. EuroChem is an outstanding partner for the Project. EuroChem has a wealth of experience and expertise in the fertiliser sector,” said Danakali CEO Danny Goeman.

He added, “[t]he Agreement encourages the maximisation of netback pricing through the marketing and distribution of products into the highest value markets. This is a huge step in de-risking the Colluli and Danakali investment propositions.”

The agreement is set for a 10-year term, with the option for a three-year extension if both EuroChem and CMSC agree to it. The term is set to start at the date of commissioning at the Colluli SOP processing plant, though EuroChem has the ability to terminate the agreement if commercial production does not begin by July 1, 2022.

Both companies also have the option to end the offtake deal if a project financing agreement has not been executed within 14 months of signing.

The Colluli resource consists of three potassium-bearing salts in solid form — sylvinite, carnallitite and kainitite — which can produce SOP, a high-quality potash fertilizer.

Danakali’s JORC-compliant resource estimate for the project sits at 1.289 billion tonnes at 11 percent K2O for 260 million tonnes of contained SOP, while the ore reserve estimate for Colluli stands at 1.1 billion tonnes at 10.5 percent K2O for 203 million tonnes of contained SOP.

The mine life for the Colluli asset is estimated at 200 years, with annual Module I production being predicted to start in 2020 and to hit 472,000 tonnes per year. Module II, set to start six years into the project, is expected to bring annual SOP production to 944,000 tonnes.

As of 12:30 p.m. EST on Tuesday (June 12), Danakali’s share price was up 9.16 percent at AU$0.715. The company is up 3.62 percent year-to-date.

When Will Australia Legalise Recreational Cannabis?

Recreational cannabis remains illegal in all Australia’s states and territories with the exception of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). But could that change in the future?

So far there are no clear indicators as to when or if Australia could legalise recreational cannabis, but attitudes seem to be changing. Public support is growing, and there’s even some political acceptance.

Read on to learn more about when Australia may legalise recreational cannabis.

Data Review Enhances Prospectivity at Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project

Highlights:

  • CSIRO’s historical datasets show prospectivity for Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project
  • Historical laterite geochemistry data collected prior to mining at Greenbushes
  • Elevated abundances of pathfinder elements display a well-defined anomaly adjacent to Greenbushes South
  • Dispersion of elements into the laterite profiles include arsenic, tantalum, tin and antimony among others
  • Galan to commence sampling and mapping at Greenbushes South next month

Galan Lithium Limited (ASX: GLN) (Galan or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has completed a review of historical CSIRO data which enhances the prospectivity of its Greenbushes South Lithium project.

AIS Resources’ Australian Yalgogrin Gold Project’s first drill hole returns gold intercepts averaging 1.5g/t over 87 meters including 0.9 meters at 9.3 g/t

A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the “Company” or “AIS) reports that the assay analysis from YDD1 at Neighbour’s Farm historic mine workings, the first diamond drill hole at its Yalgogrin Gold Project, NSW, Australia has been completed by SGS Australia. Extensive gold mineralisation was intersected from 58m through to the end of hole at 162.3m with gold mineralisation remaining open at depth and returning gold Intercepts over 87m averaging 1.5gt. The best individual grades returned up to 9.3 gt Au that are supported by consistent mineralisation hosted within the altered rock mass.

A summary of the intervals and average assays is set out below from the top of the core:

Resolution Minerals Ltd Drilling Program at Sunrise Gold Prospect Completed

Adelaide, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Resolution Minerals Ltd (ASX:RML) (FRA:NC3) is pleased to announce that it has completed the Company’s first drilling program on the Sunrise Gold Prospect at the 64North Project in Alaska. Drilling was conducted along an existing access road, targeting outcropping granite hosted mineralisation, analogous in style to Kinross’s Fort Knox Gold Mine, which is one of Alaska’s most profitable mines. The Sunrise Prospect was identified in 2020 by a RML trenching program and is located less than 5km from Northern Star’s operating Pogo Gold Mine.

Summary

– A 1400m long “fence line” of 27 shallow RAB drill holes designed to test outcropping mineralisation at the Sunrise Prospect has been completed.
