As reported in the Company news release dated October 16, 2018, that the company executed a lease agreement with an arms-length private Mongolian company whereby the lessee performs mining operations at Prophecy’s Ulaan Ovoo coal mine, and will pay Prophecy US$2 for every tonne of coal shipped from the Ulaan Ovoo site premises. The lessee is responsible for all capital and operating expenses, government taxes and royalties related to Ulaan Ovoo operation.
Since the signing of the Lease, the Lessee has spent approximately US$700,000 on supplies, housing and crew and restarted Ulaan Ovoo with its own equipment. Lessee plans to start double shifts is April to meet demand.
