The Macquarie Arc project is located between Alkane Resources’ (ASX:ALK) Boda discovery and Newcrest Mining’s (ASX:NCM) Cadia-Ridgeway Gold Copper operations. 

The other mega projects of Sultan are as follows-

  • Lake Grace Ni-Cu-Au Project stretches across 690 square kilometres and 5 tenements. The project area is further divided into 2 major sub-divisions, including Lake Grace Gold and Lake Grace Nickel-Cobalt project. A recent 911 metres drilling program uncovered widespread gravity anomalies.

The project shares the mining neighbourhood with various established precious and battery metals operations, including Ramelius Resources’ (ASX:RMS) Tampia Gold project and Golden Mile Resources’ Quicksilver Ni-Co project.

  • Thaduna Gold Copper Project holds 2 granted tenements stretching over 22 square kilometres in the Murchison Goldfields.
  • East Tallering Gold Project extends over 67 square kilometres in the Tallering Greenstone belt. The mining project is located in close proximity to Adaman Resources’ Snake Well Gold Project.
  • Dalwallinu Gold project stretches over 167 square kilometres along the 20 kms long strike of the Yerlering fault corridor.

Sultan is currently progressing on negotiations with landowners to advance on the field exploration programs at the East Tallering and Dalwallinu Gold projects.

Background of the Acquisition Transaction

The acquisition of Colossus Metals required a one-time exclusivity payment of $50,000 towards the prospective copper-gold project. Further, the acquisition agreement included several other key terms-

  • A cash payment of $100,000
  • Issuance of fully paid 10 million ordinary shares, at an issue price of $0.075 a share, as a payment in the capital of the company contingent on a voluntary escrow period 6 months from the signing of the binding agreement.

Sultan will also be liable to issue 1 million fully paid ordinary shares as payment for identification of the project and their role in acquisition negotiation to Xcel Capital and Arq Capital. Additionally, a 2% NSR (Net Smelter Royalty) would be paid to the vendors or their nominees for their corresponding tenements.

 Sultan’s Board Excited on pursuing new Synergies

The board and management mark the completion of the acquisition as a milestone for the explorer and is excited to pursue the exploration play on the Colossus’s project. Sultan aims the acquisition in the LFB to expand its portfolio and complement the current portfolio.

Sultan is well placed to undertake and deliver results from exploration plays such as the Macquarie Arc Gold Copper project.

On 30 June 2020, Sultan closed at $0.135 a share with a market capitalisation of $7.91 million.
