Commenting on the Option, Horizon Chief Executive Officer Mr Grant Haywood said:

"We are continuing to review our suite of assets including optimisation and rationalisation of our large tenement portfolio, both through acquisition and divestment opportunities. This option agreement with Dundas fits this strategy via monetising non-core assets to a very capable team to take the project forward. It will reduce our holding costs and bring additional cash and investments into the business, whilst still retaining an interest in the projects for any potential upside."
