POSCO獲得最終董事會批准 銀河資源簽訂具約束力協議出售Sal De Vida北部礦區

香港, 2018年8月28日 - (亞太商訊) - 銀河資源有限公司(「銀河資源」或「公司」)(ASX︰GXY)欣然公布與POSCO簽訂具有約束力的最終文件,出售位於阿根廷西北地區 Salar del Hombre Muerto 鹽湖北部的礦區,現金代價為2.8億美元。代價將於完成阿根廷相關礦區的轉讓及登記手續後支付予銀河資源。交易的礦區載於下文。

摘要

- 與POSCO簽訂具約束力協議,以現金2.8億美元出售Salar del Hombre Muerto鹽湖北部盆地的礦區
- 銀河資源將保留卡塔馬卡省Sal de Vida 項目餘下礦區的100%權益
- 交易所得款項淨額將用作開發Sal de Vida 項目
- 待完成阿根廷相關礦區的轉讓及登記手續後,預計交易將於2018年第四季度完成

出售的礦區在銀河資源位於阿根廷的世界級Sal de Vida 項目(「Sal De Vida」或「該項目」)的北部(見圖一)。銀河資源將保留卡塔馬卡省 Salar del Hombre Muerto 鹽湖地區南部礦區的100%權益,該區包括在Sal de Vida 的最新可行性研究內(參閱2018年5月15日的公告)。

此外,銀河資源與POSCO將繼續物色合作機會,以促進各自在 Salar del Hombre Muerto 鹽湖地區項目的未來發展及營運協同效應。

有關轉讓及登記該礦區的必要手續最終確定之後,交易預計於2018年第四季度完成。交易的所得現金淨額將於用作發展Sal de Vida 項目。銀河資源在摩根大通的幫助下,正進行Sal de Vida 開發項目的策略夥伴評估。公司在不久將來將發布相關的最新消息。

銀河資源董事長Martin Rowley表示:「這次與POSCO的交易突顯銀河資源在Salar del Hombre Muerto鹽湖礦區隱藏的巨大價值,並注入大量現金,促進Sal de Vida鹽湖鋰項目的發展。是項交易為銀河資源目前在摩根大通牽頭下同時進行,對Sal de Vida開發項目策略夥伴選擇進行評估和考慮的程序,提供最大的靈活性。我們很高興透過是次交易,與POSCO建立了互惠互利的關係,並期望在各自的項目也能繼續緊密合作。這次合作具有經濟重要性,因為這意味橫跨卡塔馬卡及薩爾塔省的 Salar del Hombre Muerto 鹽湖將有兩個規模相當大的鋰項目同時發展,為阿根廷區內持份者帶來顯著的益處。」

摩根大通為銀河資源是次交易的財務顧問。
