Signs Binding Zircon Offtake Agreement
The execution of this third Offtake Agreement builds on PYX's commitment to rapidly grow the Company and increase its production and global sales capacity. PYX has customers all over the world, including in Indonesia, Taiwan, China, India, France, UK, France, Germany, Spain and Mexico.
Delta Tiles is based in Morbi, Gujarat, India, and operates five different production units of ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles and sanitaryware. Microtech Zircon, as a member company of Delta Tiles, produces end-products of zircon to be used in Delta Tiles' manufacturing processes, as well as products to be sold outside the group.
Last year, PYX announced the signing of two separate binding Offtake Agreements. The first was with China's Qingyuan Jinsheng ZR & TI Resources Co. Ltd. for a total of 6,000 tonnes of premium zircon for two years, and the second was with Taiwan-incorporated Euronics Inc. for a total of 4,000 tonnes of zircon product per annum, also over two years. PYX's global and diversified customer base, as well as the offtake agreements signed to date, bring stability to revenues, assuring future growth as capacity increases.
Commenting on completing the Offtake Agreement with Microtech Zircon, Oliver Hasler said: "I am delighted to announce another Offtake Agreement, which will greatly contribute to our plans to expand our processing capacity in Indonesia and gain market share. In Microtech Zircon, we have found yet another highly respected zircon specialist that recognises the premium quality of our product."
PYX will supply the premium-quality zircon required from its world-class Mandiri deposit in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. Pricing under the Offtake Agreement shall be the prevailing market price in U.S. dollars of zircon, with payment terms 40% in advance and 60% upon final documentation. Under the agreement termination may occur by mutual consent or by either party with a 60-day prior written notice.
PYX recently announced that it has completed its acquisition of the entire capital of Tisma Development (HK) Limited. The acquisition resulted in an important change of scale in PYX's activities, converting PYX into the second-largest producing mining company in the world in terms of JORC-compliant zircon resources. With this acquisition PYX now controls 263MM tonnes of JORC-compliant resources, with 10.5M tonnes of contained zircon.
