TANTALEX LITHIUM OBTAINS 3M USD REVOLVING FINANCE FACILITY
Tantalex Lithium Resources Corp. obtained
a revolving finance facility of $3-million (U.S.) on Jan. 13, 2023, for its TiTan tin and tantalum concentrate plant scheduled to begin production in April, 2023.
The first $1-million (U.S.) payment is due on Jan. 23, 2023. The remaining funds will be made available for a drawdown as of Feb. 8, 2023. The facility shall be repaid in installments of $125,000 (U.S.), per month plus the interest payable at a rate of 10 per cent per annum.
The facility entitles its holder AfriMet Resources Ag to purchase up to 2,400 metric tonnes of tin concentrate over a period of 24 months at a rate of approximately 100 dmt per month.
Construction works have now resumed and transportation of the plant modules from Manono, Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the plant location are continuing.
Eric Allard, chief executive officer, commented: "With tin metal prices now recovering from the 2022 lows and reaching almost $30,000 (U.S.) per tonne, the timing to start production of our tin and tantalum concentrates could not be better. Our team is working very hard through the rainy season to reach the April commissioning target date."
The corporation's joint venture subsidiary, United Cominiere SAS, holder of concessions 12447 and 12448 where the TiTan plant is located, has completed the mandatory transfer of 10 per cent of its share capital to the Congolese government upon transformation of a research permit to a mining permit. Following this transfer, the corporation's subsidiary, Sandstone Worldwide Ltd., will own 63 per cent of United Cominiere SAS whilst Cominiere SA will own 27 per cent and the Congolese government will own 10 per cent.
