AUZ’s chairman Michael Ramsden said: “The BFS results were very positive in my opinion and in-line with the board and executive team’s expectations.

“The economic modelling in the study demonstrated the commercial viability of constructing and operating three open pits and a 2 million tonne per annum process plant at Sconi, over an initial project life of 18 years.

“This proposed operation would generate average revenues from production of over half a billion dollars per year with an average annual EBITDA of around $300 million.

“The BFS indicated average cobalt sulphate production of eight and a half thousand tonnes per annum and average nickel sulphate production of fifty-three thousand tonnes per annum.

“Both of these numbers are within the acceptable range of our off-take agreement with Korean-based EV battery manufacturer SK Innovation, who have agreed to take 100% of the cobalt and nickel produced.”
