On 16 January 2019, American Pacific Borate and Lithium Limited (ASX: ABR) has announced that the representatives of Sinomach Group will visit the company’s Fort Cady project, California to undertake further strategic cooperation discussions.
American Pacific Borate and Lithium Limited is a mining exploration company. The company has two key projects: Fort Cady Projects and Salt Wells Projects. It is currently focussing on advancing 100% owned Fort Cady Borate Project.
In 2018, the China National Chemical Fiber Corporation signed a non-binding strategic cooperation agreement with American Pacific Borate and Lithium Limited. China National Machinery Industry Corporation (“Sinomach”) is a parent company of China National Chemical Fiber Corporation.
ABR’s CEO Mr. Michael Schlumpberger has mentioned that at the end of 2018 the company has released the Definitive Feasibility study which showcased the company in a strong platform due to the exceptional results, and with the help of it, the company will start strategic negotiations with large consumers of borates. US-headquartered Barr Engineering has prepared the DFS, and on 3 December 2018, the company has publicly delivered JORC Compliant Mineral Resource Estimate for the Fort Cady Borate and Lithium Deposit.
Currently, the company is anticipating a USD 321 million EBITDA in their first full year of production due to which it will make a Fort Cady Borate Project a substantial mining prospect with low risk and supportive jurisdiction.
Last year the company also signed an agreement with the Chinese SOE Sinomach. Bringing representatives to a tenement and making a professional visit in China will be a significant step for exploring options which will be used for mine construction.
