RHA Update   


Premier African Minerals Limited ("Premier" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the following update on RHA Tungsten Pvt Ltd ("RHA") in which Premier has a 49% interest and is the operator.

Following the corporate update on 11 December, and further correspondence now received from the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority ("ZESA"), Premier is pleased to confirm that the following items have now been sourced by ZESA, a changeover panel and 1.5 MVA 33/0.4V transformer.

We are further pleased to confirm that ZESA have provided RHA with a temporary solution whereby they are in the process of coupling two transformer units rated 1MVA 33/11kv and 1.6MVA 11/0.4kv into one unit that can be used at RHA while we await delivery of the other transformer. In terms of the changeover panel, this can be operated manually at site until such time as the item has been delivered and installed.

The overall effect of the above is that RHA will have access to electricity to power all facets of the operations from early January 2020.

George Roach, CEO commented: "I am very pleased that we managed to electrify RHA. When coupled with the plant optimisation, this will significantly reduce operating expenditure and generally further de-risk planned return to production.     

I look forward providing further updates on the restart of operations at RHA."  

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014. The person who arranged the release of this announcement on behalf of the Company was George Roach.
