Proactive Investors Wednesday, 19 February 2020
Danakali Ltd’s (ASX:DNK) (LON:DNK) (OTCMKTS:SBMSF) non-executive chairman Seamus Cornelius has demonstrated his confidence in the company’s sulphate of potash (SOP) strategy through an on-market share purchase. Cornelius purchased 62,960 shares on February 19 in a transaction valued at more than A$35,700. He now holds more than 4.894 million fully paid ordinary shares in a direct holding along with almost 5.5 million shares in two indirect holdings. The company, which has a market cap of approximately A$184.9 million last traded at A58 cents, up from A54.5 cents on February 17. EPCM process underway Danakali has entered the first phase of the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) process at the world-class Colluli Sulphate of Potash (SOP) Project in Eritrea. The board of Colluli Mining Share Company (CMSC), which holds the project and is 50%-owned by Danakali, has approved establishment of the Owner’s Project Team. This team, which includes key project personnel led by project director Tony Harrington, has been embedded into the project team of EPCM consultant DRA Global. FEED review The EPCM consultant has started a review of the Front End Engineering Design (FEED), which includes developing and establishing of project systems, project controls and progress measurement monitoring. Since issuing a Notice to Proceed, DRA has also started project management activities and mobilised its own engineering group for the process plant and associated infrastructure work, which is underway in Johannesburg. New chief sustainability officer The company last month created the role of chief sustainability officer with Todd Romaine appointed to oversee the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) programs and agenda. At the time chief executive officer Niels Wage said: “Danakali is strongly committed to ensuring the development and operation of Colluli is executed in the most sustainable manner. “We want to help further shape sustainable mining and agriculture in Africa, and with Todd’s significant previous experience, also in Eritrea, we will ensure Danakali works in collaboration with partners and stakeholders to deliver a world-class ESG program.”
