Walkabout Resources secures equipment funding for Lindi Jumbo Graphite Project

Proactive Investors Tuesday, 20 February 2018
Walkabout Resources Ltd (ASX:WKT) has received approval from China Export Credit and Insurance Agency for funding 80% of the China-sourced project equipment for its Lindi Jumbo Graphite Project in Tanzania. This amounts to a gross deferred loan amount of US$9.75 million of which US$1.95 million (20%) is a pre-paid deposit by the company. Trevor Benson, chairman, said; “The approval of deferred loan funding for the project completes a major cornerstone of our funding plan. “The project is progressing extremely well in spite of the legislative delays being experienced in Tanzania.” Engineering design is beyond 80% complete Walkabout is finalising engineering design at Lindi which is currently beyond 80% complete. The engineer has allocated and stored two mill shells in order to reduce lead times and facilitate construction once the project start-up is given by the company. Tanzania recently restructured the country’s mining regulations. Walkabout has met with the newly appointed acting chief executive officer of the Tanzanian Mining Commission and is assured that progress on implementation of the regulations is well underway.
