Great Quest Announces Positive Engineering Study for Pilot Facility

Great Quest Fertilizer Ltd. announced the result from the Engineering study of the company's planned pilot scale phosphate manufacturing facility. The proposed plant would be located in Dogofry, the Ségou agricultural region of Mali, 340 km north-east of the capital city Bamako, and 1,024 km south-west of the mining properties. These results are strictly for the pilot plant project - This is a unique circumstance where this type of facility generates profits - An update of the full project PEA will be filled within 45 days. The company has received preliminary reports on the mine plan and engineering work that were commissioned with respect to the small scale pilot plant. This plant will have a processing capacity of 40,000 tons of phosphate material per annum. The Engineering Consultants (DRA Minerals Ltd. of South Africa) have optimized the design of a plant to produce 25,200 tonnes of high grade (35%) phosphate granules and 10,400 tonnes of medium grade (27%) phosphate granules, which, after blending with urea and potash, will yield approximately 96,900 tonnes of NPK products. The total capital investment is estimated to be approximately USD 24.5 M (Great Quest 67%, SADA 33%). The mine engineers (Coffey Mining South Africa) have delineated three blocks on the Tilemsi Phosphate properties, which contain an inferred resource of 501,000 tons of 27% P2O5 mineable at an average strip ratio of 1.9:1, over an estimated project life of 12 years. The economics of the project have been calculated by the company on the basis of the off-take agreement signed between the company and Société Africaine de Développement Agricole S.A. This initial pilot plant project will be the only local source of high quality fertilizer in Mali. The proximity to the Western African market is a major advantage of the project's location. All the fertilizers currently available in the region are imported through the ports of Dakar in Senegal or Abidjan in Cote d'Ivoire, respectively located at 1,500 km and 1,100 km from the agricultural areas the project will serve. As a consequence of the high costs of transport and the poor transportation logistics in the region, together with the border levies and taxes, the resulting prices of fertilizers are considerably higher in the region than are international market prices.
