Tawana Resources and Alliance Mineral Assets have signed an offtake agreement for tantalum produced at their Bald Hill mine.

Tawana Resources (ASX:TAW) and Alliance Mineral Assets (SGX:AMA) have signed an offtake deal for tantalum concentrate produced at the Bald Hill lithium-tantalum mine in Western Australia.
The deal states that a leading tantalum industry specialist will purchase a minimum of 600,000 pounds of tantalum concentrate between April 2018 and December 2020. Additionally, the buyer has the option to purchase other Bald Hill tantalum, such as low-grade or non-standard material.
A prefeasibility study released in July of last year shows that Bald Hill is expected to have an annual production rate of 155,000 tonnes of spodumene concentrate and 260,000 pounds of tantalum pentoxide. It could support a 10-year operation.
