Armadale Capital Plc is focused on investing in and developing a portfolio of investments, targeting the natural resources and/or infrastructure sectors in Africa. The Company, led by a team with operational experience and a strong track record in Africa, has a strategy of identifying high growth businesses where it can take an active role in their advancement.
The Company owns the Mahenge Liandu graphite project in south-east Tanzania, which is now its main focus. The Project is located in a highly prospective region with a high-grade JORC compliant Indicated and inferred mineral resource estimate of 51.1Mt @ 9.3% TGC, making it one of the largest high-grade resources in Tanzania, and work to date has demonstrated Mahenge Liandu’s potential as a commercially viable deposit with significant tonnage, high-grade coarse flake and near surface mineralisation (implying a low strip ratio) contained within one contiguous ore body.
Aside from Mahenge Liandu, Armadale has an interest in a portfolio of quoted investments and in January 2018 agreed to sell its interest in the Mpokoto Gold Project in the Democratic Republic of Congo for total potential consideration of US$562,500 and a 1.5% royalty on gold produced. Completion of the sale agreement is subject to execution of a formal binding agreement, which is expected in Q1 2018.
