Orion Minerals welcomes A$120 million funding package for Prieska copper zinc project

Orion Minerals Ltd’s Errol Smart speaks with Proactive soon after announcing they’ve signed non-binding term sheets for a US$87 million funding package that will advance its Prieska copper-zinc mine in South Africa’s Northern Cape Province.

The explorer has teamed up with precious metals streaming and royalty company Triple Flag to exclusively advance discussions and ink definitive funding agreements, which are anticipated next quarter.

The company’s also signed a term sheet with Stratega Metals that provides a binding exclusivity agreement for amenability test-work on samples of nickel-copper-cobalt-gold-platinum group element concentrates from Orion’s Jacomynspan Nickel-PGE Project in South Africa.
