The post Here’s why the Antipa Minerals (ASX:AZY) share price jumped 6% today appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
The Antipa Minerals Ltd (ASX: AZY) share price is roaring higher on Thursday. This comes after the mining exploration company announced an update on the farm-in agreement on the Paterson Project.
At the time of writing, Antipa shares are swapping hands for 4.9 cents apiece, up 6.52%. In comparison, the All Ordinaries (ASX: XAO) is up 0.35% to 7,709.1 points.
What did Antipa announce?
According to its release, Antipa advised that IGO Newsearch will assume management of the farm-in agreement on the Paterson Project.
Based in the Paterson Province of Western Australia, the Paterson Project covers a 423 square kilometre tenement. The site is considered to have considerable gold, copper and silver deposits similar to the Newcrest Mining Ltd (ASX: NCM) world-class Telfer gold-copper mine.
IGO’s decision to manage the Paterson Project follows its initial $4 million exploration expenditure commitment. The funds were well ahead of the January 2023 due date stipulated in the Paterson Project farm-in agreement. No joint venture interest was earned by the incurring of this amount.
The next stage requires IGO to spend a further $26 million of exploration expenditure by January 2027. This will see it earn a 70% joint venture interest, which it has elected to manage.
Once the joint venture is formed, IGO is expected to free-carry Antipa to the completion of a feasibility study.
