First Sales of Tin Concentrate from Granville Tin Project
Under the commercial terms of the off-take agreement with Traxys the Company will receive a provisional payment for 95 percent of the contained tin adjusted for treatment charges and penalties, with the balance calculated on receipt of final assays and weights from the receiving smelter.
Commenting on this significant milestone for the Company, CEO Peter Williams said "We are pleased to have dispatched the first shipment of tin concentrate from the Granville Tin Project and are delighted to be partnering with global metals trading house Traxys for concentrate sales. Notwithstanding some of the operational challenges experienced to date, this first shipment represents another step in the Company realising its vision to become a major Australian tin producer."
