Walkabout Resources also signed its second binding offtake agreement to supply premium graphite from its Lindi Jumbo Graphite Project in southeast Tanzania to Chinese graphite products manufacturer Qindao Risingdawn Graphite Technology Co (QRGT).

Walkabout Resources executive chairman Trevor Benson said: “Since engaging with a number of potential offtake partners we are seeing an increased level of confidence in our product and a growing interest in our ability to deliver a stable supply of quality, large flake graphite.

“This is evidenced in the recent signing of binding offtake term sheets.

“This binding offtake term sheet with Qindao Risingdawn together with the recently announed Inner Mongolia Qianxin Graphite term sheet substantially reduces the demand side risk of the project and is very important for our ongoing funding discussions.”
