Arc is consolidating its control of a very promising copper operation in Zambia

On the ground at Kalaba

Arc Minerals Ltd (LON:ARCM) has increased its ownership of Zamsort Limited, following the acquisition of a 6% interest from Terra Metals Limited.

Zamsort is developing the Kalaba copper-cobalt project in north-west Zambia, which is just a few months away from initial production.

The acquisition of the additional 6% stake in Zamsort is on the same commercial terms as Arc’s acquisition of a 35% stake in a deal announced on 15 May 2018.

The company will issue 17.5mln shares to complete the acquisition. These shares are also subject to a hard lock-in period of 12 months. 

In addition, Arc holds a convertible loan note in Zamsort which is convertible into an additional 5.34% interest in the share capital of Zamsort.

"This is a critical step forward in consolidating our ownership in Zamsort and to increase Arc's exposure to this large and exciting copper-cobalt asset,” said Arc’s executive chairman Nick von Schirnding.

“Today's announcement is a clear demonstration that we are delivering rapidly on our stated strategy of developing two highly attractive projects of scale in Africa. We are very close to commencing the planned drill programme at Zamsort and look forward to a period of strong newsflow for shareholders - both from Zamsort and Casa."
