Investment Update

 

Futura Resources Limited ("Futura")

 

On 30 May 2018 BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) announced that it had agreed to sell the Gregory Crinum Mine in central Queensland, Australia to Sojitz Corporation ("Sojitz").

This an important milestone for the development of Futura's Wilton and Fairhill coking coal properties as Futura can now finalise its agreements with Sojitz for Sojitz to contract mine Wilton and Fairhill, and the acquisition of Gregory Crinum by Sojitz will result in Futura having access to the coal wash plant at Gregory Crinum which is 17km away from Wilton.

Completion of the sale of Gregory Crinum is subject to the fulfilment of conditions precedent including customary regulatory approvals, which is likely to take until the fourth quarter of 2018, shortly after which Futura is planning to commence production at Wilton.
