Key Points

  • Dateline to send 40t of gold-in-concentrate to Korean smelter
  • $1.5M value arrived at via $30Ag, $2,571Au
  • $4m in firm commitments received to fund capex for USA exploration

Dateline Resources (ASX:DTR) has executed an offtake agreement with multinational commodities player IXM to purchase 100% of Dateline's gold concentrate produced at its Gold Links Mine in Colorado, US. 

The order announced today is valued at $1.5m and sees the concentrate head off via IXM to a smelter in Korea, with proceeds expected in the June quarter. Another delivery is on the cards next month.

Dateline’s concentrate was a blend of development ore combined with high-grade stoping ores from late April.

Success for management as milestone met 

Company management is optimistic on the successful deal. 

"We have been actively consolidating ownership of an extensive mineralised area and exploring Gold Links since 2016," Dateline MD Stephen Baghdadi said. 

"Whilst we have achieved this first sales milestone, we have more to achieve at Gold Links as we expand exploration." 

Share placement launch

To that end, the company notes it has received commitments to raise $4m for capex needed to progress exploration activities; this will be underpinned by a new share placement. 

Sophisticated and professional investors in Australia have agreed to invest in the company as it moves onto its next July delivery. 

40m shares at 10c will be issued as part of the placement and used to accelerate the USA project footprint.
