Stellar signs JV deals on Guinea, Liberia projects

11 november 2016
Stellar Diamonds has signed joint venture agreements with Citigate Commodities Trading, a Dubai based commodities group, over the Baoulé kimberlite project in Guinea and two earlier stage exploration licences in western Liberia.
The company currently had a 75 percent interest in the Baoulé project and wholly-owns the Liberia project.
Stellar chief executive Karl Smithson said it would manage the programmes for at least the first phase of work, which was set to commence towards the end of November.
“Importantly, these joint ventures will allow the key management of Stellar to focus on the proposed Tongo-Tonguma transaction in Sierra Leone, which we believe offers significant value potential,” he said.
“The combined Tongo-Tonguma project demonstrated robust economics in a Preliminary Economic Assessment, with an estimated pre-tax project NPV(10) of $172 million, an IRR of 49 percent, and projected life of mine project revenues of $1.5 billion.”
