Australian Mines’ managing director Benjamin Bell said: “I am pleased that the NAIF board is considering potential funding support for Sconi, our flagship cobalt-nickel-scandium project in Northern Queensland.

“The project has the potential to provide significant upgrades of existing infrastructure located within the Greenvale region within Northern Queensland and 90% of its ongoing annual operational expenditure is expected to be with local businesses.”

Assessment progressed to due diligence phase

The Sconi project has been under consideration by NAIF for possible financial assistance and has progressed through to the due diligence phase.

This phase follows the successful progression through the enquiry, preliminary assessment, and strategic assessment phases.

The next step for Australian Mines is to provide detailed due diligence materials to NAIF for review and to then submit its formal investment proposal.
