Trigon Metals Inc. has inked a Power Supply Agreement (“PSA”) with local power distributor, CENORED (Pty) Ltd for the Kombat Mine project in Namibia.
Jed Richardson, President and CEO of Trigon, commented announced the partnership and said the agreement will see CENORED install new power infrastructure, updating grid connection, and electrifying the Kombat mine and mill on which preliminary work has already commenced.
“This new announcement gives us a formalized agreement that ensures a reliable and stable power supply for our foreseeable future at Kombat and extends power benefits separately to the people of Kombat Village,” said Mr. Richardson.
The Kombat Mine is the flagship copper project of Trigon Metals Inc., with the Company’s mining and prospecting licences covering an area in excess of 7,500 ha in the Otavi Mountainlands in Namibia.
The Project is comprised of three mining licences, which produced approximately 12.46 million tonnes of copper between 1962 and 2008, at a grade of 2.62%. The other two mining licences are within close proximity to Kombat at Gross Otavi and Harasib, which are believed to be highly prospective for lead and zinc. In addition, the Company also holds an interest in two exclusive prospecting licences which represent a potential strike extension of Kombat.
