Kropz provides Hinda phosphate project update

Kropz Plc, an emerging African phosphate explorer and developer, has announced an update for its Hinda phosphate project located in the Republic of the Congo (RoC).

Kropz has appointed Hatch Africa Pty Ltd, a global engineering and construction firm, to complete the updated feasibility study (updated FS) on Hinda. This follows the conclusion of the focussed logistics study, completed by Hatch in September 2020. The updated FS will target a phased approach in line with the terms of the mining investment agreement, with initial production of 1 million tpy of phosphate rock being exported from the existing port facility at Pointe-Noire, which is 50 km from Hinda. A second phase production ramp-up of 2 million tpy will also be evaluated with export from a new port site, located north of Pointe-Noire.

The RoC is experiencing its second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.  However, this is not currently impacting on the work schedule being undertaken by Hatch.

The updated FS will be concluded by the end of September 2021. The company will announce the results as soon as they become available.
