GRANGEX executes offtake agreement with Anglo American

On 6 May 2024, (“GRANGEX” or “the Company”) announced that it had completed the acquisition of 100% ofthe share capital of Sydvaranger Mining AS (“Sydvaranger”) from OMF Fund II H Ltd (“Orion”). Sydvaranger owns an iron ore mine in Kirkenes, Northern Norway (the “Sydvaranger Mine”).

Further to the above announcement, the Company is today pleased to announce that it has executed an offtakeagreement (“OfftakeAgreement”) with Anglo American.

Offtake Agreement

The key terms of the Offtake Agreement are as follows:

-  Anglo American will purchase all life-of-mine ultra-high-grade magnetite concentrate production from the Sydvaranger Mine;

-  The Offtake will become effective on the date Anglo American participates in the financing for the restart of the Sydvaranger Mine for an amount of at least US$50,000,000 (such participation subject to necessary due diligence and receipt of approvals, on terms to be agreed"). and;

-  The Offtake Agreement contains other such commercial terms as are customary for a contractof this nature.

As per the announcement on 6 May2024, GRANGEX will establish a technical steering committee, with a representative of Anglo American on such committee. The committee will oversee the new feasibility study (“FeasibilityStudy”) on the Sydvaranger Mine. The Feasibility Study will examine and confirm a new optimal mining plan, confirm a direct reduction grade product specification as well as new tailings disposal method.

However, based on an existing 2020 feasibility study, the Sydvaranger Mine has the potential to produce up to4,000,000 tonnes per annum of ultra-high-grade concentrate for a period of 25 years. 

Christer Lindqvist, Chief Executive Officer of GRANGEX, states: “The execution of an offtake agreement with Anglo American is a crucial milestone in the future development of the Sydvaranger Mine.

The offtake agreement also significantly de-risks the Sydvaranger Mine from a commercial perspective and will facilitate the project financing required for a restart of operations.

The GRANGEX team looks forward toworking with Anglo American to make Sydvaranger’s production the product-of-choice for the global steel industry”
