Tivan Limited to acquire Speewah project from King River Resources
Published by Joe Toft,
Global Mining Review,
Speewah hosts the largest reported vanadium in titanomagnetite resources in Australia, and one of the largest globally, containing JORC compliant mineral resources of measured, indicated and inferred resources of 4.7 billion t at 0.30% V2O5, 14.7% Fe and 3.3% TiO2 (0.23% V2O5 cut-off grade).
Beneficiation testwork undertaken by KRR on Speewah ore to produce magnetite concentrates confirmed that the vanadium grades in Speewah concentrates are some of the highest returned from any titanomagnetite resource globally. Speewah is considered amenable to processing with the TIVAN® Process, the company’s 100% owned patented processing technology for titanomagnetite ore bodies.
The acquisition will result in the company owning two large-scale vanadium in titanomagnetite deposits in Australia – the Mount Peake Vanadium-Titanium-Iron project in the Northern Territory and Speewah. This will provide the company with crucial impetus for feeding its planned centralised TIVAN® Processing Facility at Middle Arm, Darwin.
Under the binding term sheet, total consideration for the acquisition is US$20 million, comprising US$10 million in new Tivan shares at a deemed issue price of US$0.10 per share, and US$10 million in cash by way of three staged payments including an initial US$2.5 million payment at completion of the acquisition. Completion is subject to a number of conditions including, if necessary, KRR shareholder approval to be sought at a general meeting, expected to be held in late March.
