Nordic Mining and Japanese trading house advance their agreement regarding offtake of rutile from Engebø

Report this content

In January 2019 Nordic Mining ASA (the "Company") signed a Heads of Agreement with a reputable Japanese trading house (the “Trading House”) for offtake of rutile and participation in the financing for the Engebø project. The parties have today signed a term sheet for offtake of rutile, which subject to the entering into of the final offtake agreement, will secure sales for the majority of the annual production of rutile for the first five years of production.

The parties will start the process of finalizing the final offtake agreement, which will be negotiated in parallel with negotiating the Trading House’s participation in the financing, confirming the parties’ clear intention to develop a long-term business cooperation, beyond the initial term of the offtake agreement.

The signing of the Term sheet represents an important confirmation of our long-term cooperation on rutile supply and offtake, and as basis for financing of the project", says CEO Ivar S. Fossum.

“We are very excited to mark another significant milestone towards development of such long-life, environmentally-friendly source of quality rutile. We look forward to enhancing further our long-term partnership with Nordic Mining", says the Trading House.
