Mayur Resources on track to build Orokolo Bay pilot plant in 2020

Mayur Resources Ltd. is on track to build a pilot plant at its Orokolo Bay industrial sands project in Papua New Guinea in 2020 and has purchased key plant equipment and mobile machinery, it said Dec. 20.

The pilot plant comprises stage one of the company's joint venture with China Titanium Resources Holdings Ltd., which will invest up to A$25 million for a 49% stake in the project.

The plant will produce up to 100,000 tonnes of iron ore sands per annum to provide commercial-scale test shipments to potential off-take partners.

The company said it will seek to convert its existing letters of intent into binding long-term off-take agreements for the planned full-scale plant.

In early July, Mayur announced plans to raise A$9.7 million to ensure it is fully funded until the end of 2020 and to fund the Orokolo plant's construction.
