Armadale Capital Plc (‘Armadale’ or ‘the Company’)
Result of AGM
Armadale, the AIM quoted investment company focused on natural resource projects in Africa, is pleased to announce that at the Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) of the Company held earlier today, all resolutions were duly passed.
At the AGM, Non-Executive Director Nicholas Johansen made the following statement:
“2018 is set to be another active year for Armadale Capital as we advance our Mahenge Liandu Graphite Project in Tanzania (‘Mahenge Liandu’ or the ‘Project’) towards a decision to mine early next year. We have already proven the Project’s potential to be developed into a significant high-grade graphite mine, with potential to deliver a 400,000tpa operation over a 32-year mine life whilst generating meaningful value with an NPV of US$US349m and IRR of 122%. Our focus now is to make this potential a reality, and in support of this the Feasibility Study continues to progress well. This study will give us further insight into the Project’s commercial value and will also tie into further drilling due to be undertaken in the coming year to upgrade of our current JORC Resource of 51.1Mt at 9.3% TGC to Probable and Proven Reserves and to also provide concentrate samples to assist with ongoing discussions with potential offtake partners. We look forward to keeping shareholders updated on our progress and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our shareholders for their ongoing support.”
