The rail extension would importantly link Canyon’s bauxite project to a deep water port

Canyon Resources Ltd (ASX:CAY) is set to benefit from the completion of an independent feasibility studying construction of a rail line from Edea to Kribi Poron in Cameroon.

Importantly, the rail line would provide part of the link between the company’s Minim Martap Bauxite Project and the Kribi deep water port.

Canyon’s managing director Phillip Gallagher said: “It’s pleasing to see the Cameroon Government progressing its rail network to a level that will potentially provide the infrastructure required for Canyon to transport bauxite product from our globally significant project at Minim Martap to the Kribi Port.”

“We will continue to work with the Cameroon government and Camrail to ensure the best possible outcome for the rail network, as it is an important piece in unlocking the potential of our tier 1 bauxite resource at Minim Martap.”
