Kogi Iron Ltd (ASX:KFE) has entered into a letter of intent (LOI) to progress discussions with the Inner Galaxy Group regarding a strategic partnership for the development of Kogi’s Agbaja Cast Steel Project in Nigeria.

Inner Galaxy is a Nigerian based company with steel production operations in Lagos State (capacity 200,000 tonnes per annum) and a facility near Aba in the Port Harcourt region (capacity 800,000 tonnes per annum).

The LOI is non-binding and is intended to provide a framework for further discussions to be held regarding the development of the Agbaja Cast Steel Project and the long term off-take of production from the Agbaja project.
