  • African Energy, First Quantum advance Botswana coal/power project 2016-07-26
    ASX-listed African Energy Resources (AFR) is looking to update its mining study to meet the requirements of fuel delivery for a 450 MW integrated coal and power project, up from the 300 MW it had initially planned for its Botswana-based Sese project. The update forms part of the work programmes AFR will embark on, following a A$3-million commitment from its joint venture (JV) partner, Canada’s First Quantum Minerals.

    Cashed up African Energy Resources (ASX:AFR) has signed a term sheet with an as yet unnamed South African investment group to develop an integrated coal mine and thermal power station at its Mmamabula West power project in Botswana.

    The group has a three month exclusive period to negotiate the terms of binding documentation for a joint development agreement for mine‐mouth power generation.

    Mmamabula West provides an opportunity for near term power generation with its 2.47 billion tonnes of resources in two main coal seams.

    Meanwhile First Quantum Minerals increased their interest in the Sese Integrated Power Project in Botswana to 53%, having spent A$1.3 million beyond the initial A$8 million investment on the Sese Project to date.

    First Quantum can invest up to $20 million in the Sese JV.  African Energy's 25% share of additional funding will be loaned to it by First Quantum and carried to commercial production.

    In December African Energy executed a binding share sale deal under which the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Botswana Energy Solutions Ltd will sell the Mmamantswe Coal and Power project to TM Consulting for US$20 million, subject to certain conditions being met.

    African Energy had cash reserves of $6.6 million in December 2015 and had been undertaking daily share buy- backs to tighten the share register and enhance capital gain prospects for the company.

    African Energy is participating in the development of three large-scale power projects in Botswana, placing it in an enviable position to become a regional power force.

  • Environmental 2015-06-09
    Mmamantswe has an approved Environmental Impact Assessment for up to 10Mtpa coal mining and up to 2,000MW of power generation.
  • General 2015-05-10
    Aviva has identified a large coal resource of 1.3 billion tonnes, including a probable run of mine reserve of 895mt. The potential development options for Mmamantswe are well understood. Since acquiring the project in 2007, Aviva has undertaken numerous studies including water drilling, coal quality, coal preparation, mine scoping, power generation and transmission, and most recently ‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚– thermal coal export. A study completed by A&B Mylec Pty Ltd in February 2011 demonstrates that the 895Mt Mmamantswe project could yield two products streams, namely 200Mt of export grade thermal coal and an additional 100-150Mt of domestic power coal capable of supporting a 300MW domestic power station with a mine life of 60 years. Aviva is currently reviewing the project scope to determine the greatest opportunities to create value from shareholders in light of increased international interest in the region‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚’s coal projects, from particularly Indian buyers.
