Alara’s first copper shipment ready for China

The first shipment of copper concentrate from Alara Resources’ (ASX:AUQ) Al Wash-hi Majaza mine, owned by its Omani joint venture company Al Hadeetha Resources (AHRL), is due to leave port today for China. 

Copper concentrates weighing 1,012 wet metric tonnes were transported in 42 containers from the concentrator plant at the mine to Sohar Port. 

The final container is expected to arrive on 26 June 2024.  

Alara, which has a market capitalisation of $49.54 million, holds a 51% interest in the Al Washi-hi Majaza Copper-Gold Project, which lies 160km south-west of Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman. 

The joint venture between AHRL and Alara was formed in 2011 to explore and develop the mineral zones within the project.

Alara Resources is an Australia-based precious and base metal explorer and developer focused on operating the 1 million tonne per year Al Wash-hi Majaza mine.
