George Roach, Premier's CEO, commented; "We are pleased to have received a substantive response from the new Minister to our proposal originally submitted in January 2018.

“The Minster has raised a number of issues, most already dealt with historically and notes that the management contract will need to be renegotiated. As indicated in the letter, the Minister looks forward to discussing the matter further.

“Our formal response to the Minister will suggest that I am ready to meet the Minister at any time that the Minister finds convenient.”

He concluded: “I look forward to progressing the Newco/KME transaction and bringing the RHA status back to production as soon as possible in 2019.”
