Upon completion of the Acquisition, Strandline will not only be better funded but also hold the dominant mineral sands exploration position in Tanzania, the last underexplored piece of the East African mineral sands producing corridor.
Commenting on the Acquisition, Strandline's Managing Director, Richard Hill, said: "Strandline has secured an excellent opportunity to combine with the assets and team of Jacana to build a serious mineral sands player."
The Acquisition will see Strandline augment an already strong mineral sands portfolio and become better funded for our exciting future. This puts Strandline in a very envious position for future exploration success, and for any majors wanting entry into the last underexplored piece of the East African coastline."
About Jacana Minerals Limited and its subsidiary Jacana Resources Tanzania (JRT)
Jacana was spun out of Syrah in October 2014 and now owns the Tanzanian assets that Syrah held. Syrah is focussing on its industry-leading Balama graphite and vanadium in Mozambique.
Jacana is selling JRT which controls Jacana's exploration assets, all of which are located in Tanzania (see Figure 1). These include high potential, underexplored, advanced exploration projects and an Indicated Resource, as well as large areas of well-located unexplored ground. In addition, JRT has strong graphite, nickel and coal prospects.
The strongest prospects include the rutile-rich Tanga North prospect, the high grade areas south of Tanga (Tongani and Tajiri) and the zircon-rich Indicated Resource at Fungoni. All of these prospects, and the surrounding exploration areas, need more drilling to assess their large, high-grade potential.
Jacana is planning to distribute the Strandline shares that it receives in the transaction to Jacana shareholders at a rate of approximately 5 Strandline shares for every 1 Jacana share owned. This distribution will be subject to Jacana shareholder approval.
