Why are Magnis shares in a trading halt?
Magnis requested the trading halt this afternoon pending the release of a binding off-take agreement.
While details remain sketchy, the announcement is in regards to the future sale of graphite from the Nachu project.
Tanzanian subsidiary, Uranex Tanzania, owns a 100% interest in the Nachu graphite project located near Ruangwa, Tanzania.
The project is approximately 220 kilometres away from the Tanzanian port of Mtwara. The project has significant potential due to its large size, an orebody with very low variation in lithology and mineralisation, and its low-cost operational model.
Magnis has a proprietary process to produce high-quality, high-purity graphite concentrate ore from the Nachu graphite feedstock.
The African graphite project is estimated to contain combined, measured, indicated, and inferred resources totalling 174Mt grading 5.4% graphitic carbon (Cg) at 3% Cg cut-off grade.
While the likely purchaser is unknown, investors will have to wait until possibly 20 December to find out. It is expected that once the announcement is provided to the ASX, the trading halt will be lifted then.
