Venture Minerals and Grange Resources in Magnetite Off-Take Deal

Venture Minerals has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Grange Resources for magnetite off-take from the Mt Lindsay tin and tungsten deposit in north-west Tasmania. The deal was signed on Monday.

The magnetite iron ore pellet producing Grange Resources will buy the by-product from the mine and convert 200,000 tonnes of magnetite concentrate from the Mt Lindsay project into iron ore pellets in a mutually beneficial deal.

Grange Resources’ iron ore mine called Savage River is approximately 25km away from the Mt Lindsay project. Savage River has been in production for 44 years and has a projected lifespan to 2026.

Hamish Halliday, Venture’s managing director, said that a joint development with Grange would provide synergistic benefits to both parties and allow Venture access to Grange's long-established infrastructure. He added that they were excited to have the opportunity to explore a range of development options with Grange, who have been successfully mining, manufacturing and exporting iron ore pellets from Tasmania for several decades.

Venture Mining is also in talks with potential customers for its Livingstone hematite iron ore deposit in Tasmania. It has recently announced Livingstone to be a direct shipping ore Hematite Deposit after many parties expressed interest in it.
