Ningxia 2020 site visit
To date, TMT has delivered two MoUs with two separate parties covering 40% of the proposed annual project production.
This comprises 2,000 tonnes per annum of vanadium pentoxide to CNMC (Ningxia) Orient Group and 3,000 tonnes annually to Shaanxi Fengyuan.
Discussions regarding the conversion of CNMC’s MoU to a binding offtake agreement are in the latter stages of negotiation and documentation, with investors to be updated as this matter is progressed.
Shaanxi Fengyuan continues to conduct due diligence with a site visit likely to take place in early 2020.
