MPH advises Reward Minerals Limited regarding JV with FMG

15/11/2019

MPH recently advised ASX-listed Reward Minerals Limited (ASX:RWD) regarding a $2 million farm-in and joint venture arrangement with FMG, whereby FMG has the ability to earn an 80% interest in the gold and base metals rights in relation to certain Reward tenements located in the McKay Range, north-western Western Australia, by funding exploration focussed on those metals. Under the arrangements, Reward retained all rights to evaporite minerals such as potassium and magnesium on the tenements and, in addition, successfully negotiated with FMG to be granted rights over the same minerals on two FMG tenements in the area for a nominal sum. The transaction allows Reward to have ongoing exposure to exploration upside from non-core tenements in its portfolio, whilst it continues to focus on its flagship advanced-stage Lake Disappointment sulphate of potash project.
