Kabunga said: “We are delighted to have Jack Fazio joining the board, and his extensive project management, engineering and commissioning skills and experience will be a valuable addition to the team as we transition from the project studies and funding phase through to project development and the start of stage I operations at Bunyu.”

Stage I plans

Stage I development is based on a mining and processing plant annual throughput rate of 400,000 tonnes of ore to produce on average 23,700 tonnes of graphite products.

A key objective of the stage I development is to establish infrastructure and market position in support of the development of the significantly larger stage II expansion project.

The project is near critical infrastructure with sealed roads running through the project area, providing ready access to the deep-water port of Mtwara 140 kilometres away.
