Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria commented, "We are delighted to announce that the first Amapa iron ore shipment has completed and is now en route."


"On behalf of the Cadence board, I would like to put on record our gratitude and appreciation of the tireless efforts of all of those involved in getting this shipment completed in an safe and efficient manner and ahead of schedule. This landmark first shipment from Amapa would not have been possible without the support of the local authorities and the state agencies who have not only assisted us in completing our first shipment but have also made a material difference in our efforts to create ne  employment and economic activity in the region."


"I look forward to updating you further in the upcoming webinar after Easter."


Cadence Interest In the Amapa Iron Project

In early September 2020, we announced that DEV Mineração S.A's ("DEV"), Cadence and Indo Sino Pty Ltd ("the Investors") agreed in principle to the settlement terms proposed by the secured bank creditors ("Bank Creditors"). Detailed discussions and drafting of the legal documents continue.


The execution of a settlement agreement with the Bank Creditors would represent the satisfaction of Cadence's remaining major precondition to make its initial 20% investment in the Amapa Project. On completion of the conditions and the release of the Cadence escrow monies, Cadence will become a 20% shareholder in the Amapá Project via our joint venture company, which will own 99.9% of DEV.
