Internal Review of the Feasibility Study (“FS”)

  • the Company is currently engaged in an internal review of key elements of the FS
  • the review provides the Company with the opportunity to audit key FS assumptions, ensure Dasa is an efficient and modern operation, and attain the highest level of project cost certainty
  • results of the Company’s pilot test program and successful testing of Dasa Ore at Orano Mining’s nearby Somaïr Mill confirm the process flow sheet and higher metal recoveries than carried in our April 2020, Preliminary Economic Assessment for Dasa 
  • the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted supply chains around the world and management are sourcing solutions to mitigate delivery issues and lower logistics costs
  • the review has identified opportunities to increase the participation of Niger national contractors, reduce costs and ensure quotations for certain major equipment components will meet standards for a bankable Feasibility Study
