Australia-listed Jupiter is paying dividends, however.

For the year ended February 2019, the payment was 7.5 cents and as manganese prices have been steady, dividend payments are expected to continue.  

Red Rock owns 18.525mln shares in Jupiter (0.95%), which means a dividend receipt of A$1.39mln (£750,000) for the year just ended.

Elsewhere, Red Rock has expanded its exploration acreage in Congo and taken a stake in African Battery Metals PLC (LON:ABM).
