The customer will use the coal as part of its manufacturing process. The terms for supply are set out below:

  • the contract duration is for an initial period of two years;
  • coal will be supplied with a gross calorific value averaging 5,500 kCal/kg;
  • pricing has been agreed and is based on local commercial rates;
  • the customer will be responsible for transport of the coal from the mine gate; and
  • the contract is for the supply of 3,500 tonnes of coal per month with an option for the customer to increase this up to 6,000 tonnes per month.

Edenville has been working with this customer for some time to create a product specifically suited to the customer’s operations and has been supplying test batches of coal. The upgrades currently being undertaken at the Company’s Rukwa project site will ensure this contract, along with our other customer deliveries, can be met.

Commenting, Rufus Short, CEO of Edenville said, “I am very pleased we have formalised this relationship and have secured Edenville’s largest single coal contract to date. We look forward to supplying this customer with coal from our operation in Tanzania and we will continue to work with them to ensure their needs are met.

“With this contract, we now have in excess of 8,000 tonnes per month of regular orders and are busy implementing the expansion plans at site. I look forward to providing further updates on the progress of the operation as we continue to establish the project as a significant supplier of coal in East Africa.”
