On 4 March 2019, TIG made an announcement on ASX, highlighting that on 1 March 2019, it had entered a term sheet with East Mining Company (EMCO), based in Sakhalin for purchasing, and financing two 500t barges, which was earlier operated by EMCO in the Port of Shakhtersk. Based on the acquisition of the barges, and their delivery to Beringovsky, before the beginning of the shipping season in 2019, it would be contributing towards the ability of the company to increase the throughput capacity of Port Beringovsky. In the same announcement, TIG also highlighted that on 28 February 2019, it had signed a coal supply contract, with a significant and strategically important Japanese customer to ship initial 100kt of coal in 2019.

For the company, the signing of the contract was further proof of increasing acceptance of the TIG coal in its key Asian markets.

On 31 January 2019, the company announced its quarterly report for the period ended 31 December 2018, where the key highlights of the December quarter were on:

  • Mine production: Around 143kt of the coal was mined, and 95kt got delivered to the port. The target for both the December quarter, as well as, the yearly mining target was achieved in 2018.
  • Sales: 393kt of coal was loaded and sold in 2018, which was slightly below the annual guidance update in the September Quarterly Production and Activities Report. The adverse port weather conditions were the primary reason for low quarterly production, at the end of the shipping season.
