Amur Minerals Corporation (LON:AMC) has entered into a Memorandum of Cooperation with GEFCO LLC, a global expert in supply-chain solutions with a strong presence in Russia, and is 75% owned by JSC Russian Railways.
This MOC will address Amur’s rail and shipping transport requirements for the construction of the Kun-Manie nickel project in Russia’s far east.
It will encompass operational supply support and saleable product delivery to the Asian markets of China, Japan and Korea foremost among international opportunities.
"The transport and logistical requirements for Kun-Manie are multifaceted, covering three key considerations of project construction, mine operation and sale of the product,” said Robin Young, Amur’s chief executive.
“Discussions have been on-going between Amur and GEFCO representatives on these considerations and the MOC represents the start of the next stage, namely, developing definitive transport and logistics solutions. It is also very important, given the complexity of global transport and logistics, that we have GEFCO providing advisory assistance in our discussions with other parties.”
