The HoA (Head of Agreement) will provide the framework which will be utilized for the negotiation of legally binding agreements: Lease Agreement, Sale & Purchase Agreement and the Service agreement (together the “Execution Agreements”). The finalization and signing of the Execution Agreements will give authorization to the company’s PCD plant and equipment at Leigh Creek, and it will be the first instance leased by the South African company Africary. It will also grant an option for Africary to buy Pre-Commercial Demonstration plant so that they can be used at its Theunissen underground coal gasification project which is in South Africa, and the company will provide advisory services to Africary.
Whenever the Execution Agreements get signed, the company will recover most of its engineering and plant costs of the Pre-Commercial Demonstration plant, and it will also be an early path for revenue.
