Red Rock notes Jupiter distribution update

By BFN News | 01:25 PM | Monday 11 September, 2017


Red Rock Resources has highlighted details of the planned $25m distribution to shareholders by Australia based Jupiter Mines, a Company in which it holds an interest. These include: - Distribution will be by means of an equal access share buyback to return $25m (approximately AU$31.3m) to shareholders ("Buy-Back") - Jupiter shareholders will be made an offer to buy back 4% of their Jupiter shares at a set price of $0.29 (approximately AU$0.36) per share - Jupiter's balance sheet will remain strong following the Buy-Back - Should current manganese prices hold, Jupiter may receive a further ZAR250m distribution from Tshipi at the February 2018 year end - Tshipi has a 100 year mine life, is one of the largest manganese producers, and has one of the lowest operating costs - All Jupiter Directors will accept the Buy-Back, as will Red Rock - Red Rock holds approximately 1.2% of Jupiter, expects to continue to hold this percentage post the Buy-Back, and will receive in late October- early November an estimated US$300,000 from its share of the Buy-Back Red Rock Chairman Andrew Bell states: "Having received a US$655,784.80 distribution in March, this brings our distributions from Jupiter profits in calendar 2017 to nearly a million dollars. We now expect our gold royalty receipts to start becoming significant starting with the November payment, and with the Steelmin ferrosilicon plant expected to come on stream around year-end in a strong price environment for ferrosilicon, can reasonably anticipate Steelmin to start contributing to our profits in calendar 2018. The repositioning of Red Rock as a cashflow-generative miner, developer and processor continues to advance. We expect to report further in due course on progress in the capital value realisation strategies being developed by the shareholders at Tshipi." At 1:24pm: (LON:RRR) Red Rock Resources PLC share price was -0.03p at 0.7p Story provided by StockMarketWire.com
