Mayoko Project has an exploration target size of 0.9 – 1.3 billion tonnes1 of dominantly itabirite iron mineralisation.
The approach is via a conditional takeover bid implementation deed with Meijin Energy Group.
The Meijin Offer, if made on satisfaction of certain preconditions, will value DMC at approximately A$43.4 million.
