Wilconi has a JORC inferred resource of 80.5 million tonnes at 0.77% nickel and 0.058% cobalt.

This transaction is consistent with Blackham’s stated strategy of divesting non-core assets allowing it to focus on its Matilda-Wiluna Gold Operation in Western Australia.

Three-stage structure

A-Cap will acquire an initial 20% JV interest by making a cash payment to Blackham of $2.8 million within two days of the parties entering into the staged JV agreement.

On making the payment A-Cap will also acquire third-party exploration data for a payment of $100,000.

A second earn-in interest of a further 35% may be acquired by A-Cap for a cash payment of $500,000 within a period of 24 months and after incurring minimum expenditure on exploration activities.

The third earn-in interest of 20%, bringing the total JV interest held by A-Cap to 75%, will be subject to completing the project’s definitive feasibility study within 36 months, a cash payment of $1 million and an issue of $1.5 million worth of A-Cap shares.
