Update on off-take discussions

 

Ironveld plc, the owner of a High Purity Iron ("HPI"), Vanadium and Titanium project located on the Northern Limb of the Bushveld Complex in Limpopo Province, South Africa (the "Project") provides the following update in relation to its discussions with potential off-takers and its ongoing talks with potential industrial partners.

 

Following completion of the bulk sampling and testing programme with a potential off-take partner, who is a specialist subsidiary of an international steel group, the Company entered into discussions, with the aim of concluding a commercial offtake agreement. Whilst those discussions have not formally concluded, commercially viable terms have not been presented to the Company to date, the Board has now come to the view that it is unfortunately not going to be possible to agree terms with this potential off-take partner.

 

The Company has in place an offtake agreement for the Project's envisaged vanadium slag product that was entered into in 2016 and remains in discussions with offtake partners for the other products. Negotiations with potential development partners who have completed due diligence continue and may lead to offers that would facilitate the commencement of smelting operations by the Company. The Company will provide further updates to the market in due course.

Vanadium and Titanium slag containing commercial grades of vanadium and titanium will also be produced and sold.
