Vast Resources PLC has signed a long-term off-take deal covering all concentrates from its Manaila mine in Romania.
The deal was struck with the Swiss-based commodity-trader Transamine Trading SA.
Chief executive Roy Pitchford told Proactive the objective is to produce a concentrate around 20% copper and very low in Zinc and at the moment they’re targeting 300-350 tonnes of copper concentrate per month.
‘’What we have now achieved is the first phase of our improvement. We are producing a good quality copper concentrate at reasonable tonnages which we’ll now look to push up while maintaining the copper grade’’, Pitchford said.
The plan now is to create a zinc production stream as well.
