Big Picture – A Deep Dive Examination of Kogi Iron Ltd

Kogi Iron Ltd Snapshot

The Company's wholly owned subsidiary in Nigeria, KCM Mining Limited, has secured a Community Development Agreement and Mining Licences have been granted for the mining of iron ore and its conversion into cast steel for steel making.

Kogi Iron and KCM are committed to supporting the local people and environment at the plant site as the area evolves into a modern mining and steel making community, which can be proud of growing into its role as a major producer of steel quality product.

Kogi Iron will now progress its Definitive Feasibility Study to support financing for the Agbaja Project.


The Agbaja Project is located on the Agbaja Plateau in Kogi State, Nigeria, approximately 200 kilometres from the capital city, Abuja. The Plateau hosts an extensive, shallow, flat-lying channel iron deposit (CID) and Kogi Iron has determined a Probable Ore Reserve of 205 million tonnes at a grade of 45.7% iron (Fe), estimated in accordance with the JORC (2012) code. Mineral Resources on the plateau are 586 million tonnes with an in-situ grade of 41.3% and comprise an Indicated Mineral Resource of 466 million tonnes at 41.4% Fe and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 120 million tonnes at 41.1% Fe, all estimated in accordance with the JORC (2012) code.

The Agbaja Project is uniquely positioned proximal to existing, under-utilised infrastructure including road, river and power suitable to facilitate a major cast steel project.

Since 2016, the Company has advanced its intention to develop an integrated steel plant utilising the company leased iron ore deposit and nearby coal and limestone sources. The results of a laboratory scale test on the iron ore demonstrated that it could be converted to a steel feedstock suitable for electric arc furnaces. In November 2017, the Company commenced a Pilot Plant Test Program on a large bulk sample to demonstrate the process in a continuous batch mode.

Kogi Iron will now progress its Definitive Feasibility Study to support financing for the Agbaja Project.

SD Capital and GKB Ventures Ltd were jointly engaged in October 2017 to secure debt funding for the Project as well as equity finance to complete the DFS and Project financing. The majority of the debt funding is expected to come from Export Credit Agency funds and a detailed program is underway to ensure agencies are well aware of the Project.
