The company, today on 5th April 2019, updated that it has finalised its exit from all initiatives in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), so it can focus its efforts on three potash projects in Kazakhstan, namely the Zhilyanskoye, Chelkar and Satimola projects.

An agreement has been executed in relation to the termination of the acquisition of the 60% equity stake in Société MCC Resource SARL (MCC), (see ASX announcement 26 March 2018) which holds 100% of Mining License 14068 (PE14068). The key terms of the agreement to exit from the Société MCC Resource SARL acquisition will see KPC cease all activity in the DRC and the cancellation of 82 million KPC shares, paid as part consideration to the MCC vendor by KPC. The share cancellation will be subject to KPC shareholder approval.

The agreement with MCC to terminate the acquisition is in addition to not proceeding any further with the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), signed with Mining Mineral Resources SARL to acquire 51% of the Malemba Lithium Project, and the MOU signed with La Société Katanga Copperbelt Mining SA to acquire 51% of the Kikata North and Mifumbi Copper-Cobalt Projects (see ASX announcement 22 February 2019).

Meanwhile, the company lately disclosed that the lodgement of the full year accounts for the period ending 31 December 2018 of the company will be delayed. Hence, the company will advise the market accordingly as to the timing of the release of the full year accounts for 31 December 2018.

The ability of the entity to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the fruitful implementation of exploration activities, feasibility studies and potential mine development activities on the potash projects, which are located in the regions of Kazakhstan. This will require the group to raise additional funds through debt and equity. The existence of these conditions indicates a material uncertainty with regard to the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern.
