Pending approval from the South African Reserve Bank, the agreement should be executed during September 2020.

MC Mining’s Acting CEO, Brenda Berlin, commented on the company’s ongoing operations, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The investment by CSH ensures we have the necessary resources to be able to complete the composite funding package, anticipated to be by the end of CY2020, as well as providing working capital for the initial period of construction in H1 CY2020,” she said.

“MC Mining previously secured a R245 million (approximately A$20.3 million) loan from the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa Limited, a critical component in the Makhado Phase 1 debt/equity funding structure,” she added.
