Ny artikel om Allana i Resource Clips där bolagets Senior VP Strategic Projects Jack Scott uttalar sig om vad som sker just nu och vad planen är. Allana för diskussioner med flera potentiella partners just nu enligt Scott. Kan Yara vara en av dem tro..?
Allana increases Ethiopia Dallol Potash Resource Estimate
"Scott notes that the new estimate represents a 90% increase to the measured and indicated resource, “And an overall expansion of the total resource as well. We want to move as much as possible into measured and indicated, so as we go through the feasibility study we can roll that into potential reserves. Our exploration has been predominantly in the shallow, western region of the property."
"Right now our timeline is focused on continuing the feasibility study and some pilot work. Pilot solution wells, pilot evaporation ponds—pre-production analysis due for completion at the end of this year. So the feasibility study, including all that pilot work, is due for completion at the end of this calendar year. We’re doing our environmental and social impact assessment work in concert with one of our major shareholders, the International Finance Corporation, and that’s proceeding and due for completion at the end of this year as well. In parallel with all that work, we’re working through BNP Paribas, our financial advisor, to bring our lenders along through that technical and environmental and social evaluation process so we’re ready to work towards an accelerated close on the project at the end of this year."
"Allana intends to take the Dallol Project to production. Scott adds, “We’re looking for strategic off-takers. That’s part of the work program through the summer this year. We’re in discussion with a number of players, people that bring access to market demand for potash. Those are our targets for strategic partners. People that, perhaps, can bring some operating expertise as well."
