MKANGO RECEIVES ESHIA APPROVAL FOR THE SONGWE HILL RARE EARTHS PROJECT

 

London, U.K. and Vancouver, Canada - January 26, 2023 - Mkango Resources Ltd. (AIM/TSX-V: MKA) (the "Company" or "Mkango") is very pleased to announce that the Malawi Environmental Protection Agency ("MEPA") has approved the Environmental Social Health Impact Assesment ("ESHIA") for Mkango's flagship Songwe Hill Rare Earths Project ("Songwe Hill") in the Phalombe district of Malawi.

 

The approval of the ESHIA is a significant milestone in the Mining Development Agreement ("MDA") approval process, it is a fundamental requirement for the Company to be granted a mining licence and is expected to unlock significant stakeholder value and future investment for the development of Sub-Saharan Africa's first large scale, commercial rare earth mining and processing operation in Malawi.

 

Mkango President Mr Alexander Lemon stated;

 

"The approval of the ESHIA for the Songwe Hill Rare Earths project is a major achievement for Mkango and Malawi's first rare earth mining project. We would like to thank the Malawian government for their ongoing cooperation and support and the Malawi Environmental Protection Agency for their advice and support during the ESHIA engagement, review and approval process. We look forward to the Mining Licence and MDA being approved in the coming weeks.

 

"The Malawi Ministry of Justice has appointed a London based international law firm with mining expertise to carry out a final review of the Mining Development Agreement ("MDA") and we are hoping to shortly conclude an agreement that is a win-win for both the Nation of Malawi and all of Mkango's stakeholders."

 

The ESHIA was undertaken by Digby Wells Environmental Limited (https://www.digbywells.com/about-digby-wells/) in compliance with the latest International Finance Corporation ("IFC") Performance Standards and the Malawi Environmental Management Act, No. 19 of 2017.

AbouMkango Resources Limited

Mkango's corporate strategy is to develop new sustainable primary and secondary sources of neodymium, praseodymium, dysprosium and terbium to supply accelerating demand from electric vehicles, wind turbines and other clean technologies. This integrated Mine, Refine, Recycle strategy differentiates Mkango from its peers, uniquely positioning the Company in the rare earths sector.

Mkango is developing Songwe Hill in Malawi with a Feasibility Study completed in July 2022. Malawi is known as "The Warm Heart of Africa", a stable democracy with existing road, rail and power infrastructure, and new infrastructure developments underway.

In parallel, Mkango and Grupa Azoty PULAWY, Poland's leading chemical company and the second largest manufacturer of nitrogen and compound fertilizers in the European Union, have agreed to work together towards development of a rare earth Separation Plant at Pulawy in Poland (the "Pulawy Separation Plant"). The Pulawy Separation Plant will process the purified mixed rare earth carbonate produced at Songwe Hill.

Through its ownership of Maginito (www.maginito.com), Mkango is also developing green technology opportunities in the rare earths supply chain, encompassing neodymium (NdFeB) magnet recycling as well as innovative rare earth alloy, magnet, and separation technologies. Maginito holds a 42% interest in UK rare earth (NdFeB) magnet recycler, HyProMag (www.hypromag.com) with an option to increase its interest to 49%.

Mkango also has an extensive exploration portfolio in Malawi, including the Mchinji rutile exploration project, the Thambani uranium-tantalum-niobium-zircon project and Chimimbe nickel-cobalt project.
