This Offtake Agreement also supports our decision to fast-track the expansion of our processing capacity and accelerate production growth at our worldclass Mandiri asset. This agreement enables the Company to significantly expand its position in this key market. China represents 47% of the global zircon demand."
Under the terms of the Offtake Agreement, PYX will deliver the product to Qingyuan/Huangpu Port, China, as requested by the buyer. Orders shall be placed by the buyer and accepted by the seller 60 days before each delivery.
Pricing under the Offtake Agreement shall be the prevailing US$ market price for zircon.
The execution of the Offtake Agreement represents a major agreement to be entered into by the Company, in addition to its existing global customers, since it completed its recent, highly successful IPO and listing on the National Stock Exchange (NSX) of Australia.
