Lithium

  • Zulu Lithium and Tantalum Project covers 3.5km2, situated 80km east of Bulawayo

  • Attractive economics with 15 year mine life:

  • Exclusive Prospecting Order for larger tenements currently under application

  • Spodumene and petalite flotation processes contain very low iron oxide concentrations (~0.01%), allowing for potential high-quality, low iron feldspar and quartz as by-product for glass and cermics applications

Manganese

  • 10% interest in MN Holdings, which operates the wholly-owned Otkozondu Manganese mine located 150km northeast from Windhoek

  • Plant currently producing 5kt per month, targeting increase to 38kt per month with an annualised production of 500kt generating approximately US$35m based on Mn price of US4/mtu
