First Copper Sulphate Shipment Completed

Tartana Minerals Limited (ASX: TAT) (the Company), is pleased to announce that it has completed the first shipment of Copper Sulphate Pentahydrate (Copper Sulphate) from Tartana’s newly recommissioned Copper Sulphate plant.


  • First Copper Sulphate shipment completed from Tartana to offtake partner Kanins
  • Payment received and start of ongoing cashflow for Tartana
  • Further shipments are targeted to commence on a more regular basis as production ramps up
  • Copper drilling announced last week is ongoing, with target completion next week with aim to provide bulk samples for mineralogical testwork
Tartana Minerals Managing Director, Stephen Bartrop, commented:

“Our first shipment of Copper Sulphate with our 100% offtake partner, Kanins International, is a significant step towards recommencing commercial steady-state production and reflects a coalescence of over two years of work in recommissioning this plant. We now look towards moving into a more regular rhythm of shipments being completed.

“Recent Copper price improvements directly increase the profitability of this project as Copper Sulphate is priced by reference to its Copper weight plus a premium.”
