The company is also looking to complete its definitive feasibility study in mid-2018, allowing it to move to the engineering and design stage.

Offtake agreements and financing

The other key matters which management will be looking to make progress on, probably in the latter part of 2018, are offtake agreements and financing.

A successful capital raising would assist the company in gaining support from offtake partners, as there is usually an expectation on their behalf that the miner is financially robust.

Strengthening its financial position will also assist in negotiating financing which could be a mix of debt and equity.

Management has stated its intention to accelerate the project to fast track towards production and cash flow, and the proposed capital raising should assist it in meeting this goal.
