Lotus Resources Ltd (Stock Symbol – ASX: LOT, OTC: LTSRF) engages in the exploration and development of mineral properties in Malawi, New South Wales and Western Australia.
Kayelekera Uranium Project
Kayelekera Project is a large 157 square kilometer tenement package with excellent exploration potential and hosts a high grade resource. This mine has an existing open pit mine as well as demonstrated metallurgical recoveries that are very efficient.
The location of the Kayelekera project in northern Malawi, 52 kilometers west (by road) from Karonga town center and 12km south of ChitipaIt.
Former Producer Awaiting Restart
The Kayelekera Mine opened in 2009 and produced 10.9 million lbs of uranium between 2007 and 2014, when it closed mining operations due to low prices. It’s expected that the mine will reopen once there is financial incentive to restart production.
Once uranium prices rise enough to incentivize a restart of this known asset, the company anticipates production from this mine to be approximately three million pounds annually.
As previously noted, even though it had a significant operating track record, the Kayelekera Plant was closed down in 2014 due to low uranium prices, but recent increases in price have made it more economically feasible to restart the plant. During October 2020, Lotus released a Restart Scoping Study indicating that recommissioning of the Kayelekera plant would cost ∼US$50 million to restart production.
The company is still deciding whether or not to go ahead with the restart. The final decision will be made in 2022 based on the results of the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) for this known asset.
Kayelekera has the potential to become one of the first uranium operations to come back online within the next few years.
The restart timeline is aligned with industry predictions of a market under-supply of approximately 30 million pounds uranium by 2024.
