Canyon Resources (CAY) has signed a strategic partnership and memorandum of understanding (MoU) for its Minim Martap Bauxite Project in Cameroon, Central Africa.

MCC-CIE has been working with Canyon as a bankable feasibility study (BFS) contractor for stage one of this project since December and this new contract reaffirms their continued commitment.
Under the new partnership, MCC-CIE will increase its involvement in the project and will provide all necessary support to Canyon to assist with finance, offtakes, technical and business issues.
Canyon Managing Director, Phillip Gallagher, said this is a positive next step.
“Executing the MOU with MCC-CIE is a testament to the sound relationship Canyon and MCC-CIE have established in a relatively short space of time, and MCC-CIE will introduce real options for project financing and offtake,” he said.

The deals will span until December 31 2022, unless extended.
