Corporate Update

 

The Board of Premier African Minerals Limited ("Premier" or the "Company") is pleased to reaffirm the basis for the proposed purchase of a further 7% in MN Holdings Limited ("MNH"), the owner and operator of the Otjozondu Manganese Mining Project ("Otjozondu") in Namibia as announced on 6 May 2020 and also set out the trading update below that has been provided by the management of Otjozondu.

Premier's proposed additional purchase is based exclusively on the independent valuation for further plant and equipment that MNH has purchased as set out in the announcement dated 4 December 2019. This proposed purchase is priced at the identical valuation used in the first purchase and does not consider any other project valuation basis or trading. Nevertheless, Otjozondu has confirmed that anticipated gross export tonnages of Manganese lump ore are now up to 5,600 ton per month at an average grade of approximately 34% Mn.

At this level of export and on the basis of ruling prices and terms, this equates to circa 190,400 dmtu.  Gross revenue is determined by future selling price. The most recent sale was for a shipment of 1,405 ton of lump ore and the price per dmtu was US$5.00.

MNH has further confirmed their existing dividend policy is to distribute cash surpluses after provisions for tax, royalties, expansion and appropriate reserves on a quarterly basis.

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.
