AIM quoted company operating the Rukwa Coal Project in southwest Tanzania Edenville Energy Plc advised that the recommencement of operations at Rukwa has been brought forward and will now begin on Monday 3 August 2020. The earlier restart follows the request and subsequent prepayment from an existing customer. As per the Company’s announcements of 8 June 2020 and 22 July 2020, Edenville has entered into a Coal Mining Agreement and Loan Agreement with its new strategic partner, Infrastructure Logistics Tanzania Limited. Both of these agreements were subject to the agreement of a commencement date for operations with ILTL, which in turn was dictated by the ability of ILTL to relocate key operational personnel to site from international locations. Edenville is pleased to confirm the Commencement Date has now been agreed with ILTL as 1 September 2020. Accordingly, Edenville will handle the initial restart in consultation with ILTL, before handing over operational control to ILTL on 1 September 2020.

The Company also recently stated its intention to enter into a Sales and Marketing Agreement with ILTL to market coal to additional customers beyond Edenville’s existing customer base at an agreed rate per tonne of washed coal that will be paid to Edenville, thereby providing additional revenue streams. In addition, ILTL will also provide an anchor tenancy at Rukwa, via the initial purchase of a minimum of 3,000 tonnes of washed coal per month, before increasing to 5,000 tonnes per month over the ensuing 12-month period. With the confirmation of the Commencement Date Edenville expects to finalise and enter into this agreement during August 2020.
