London-listed Blencowe Resources has signed its first nonbinding memorandum of understanding (MoU) for natural large flake concentrate offtake from the Orom-Cross graphite project, in Uganda. Under the terms of the MoU, vertically integrated graphite producer Jilin New Technology Graphite intends to buy 15 000 t/y of large-flake graphite from the mine. This equates to about 66% of the Orom-Cross large-flake production for up to three years from the start of operations.
