More progress and Media Promotion for the Fertillizer and Green Ammonia Projects in Angola. Compelling DFS for the Phosphate Project and MOU from the Green Ammonia Project. It essentially seems there has been no SP value attributed to the Green Ammonia project, which could be a bigger project than the Fertiliser Project.

  • Historic Green Ammonia MOU The Agreement represents a global green energy first, outlining the framework and conditions for the supply of 100%-renewable and installed hydroelectric power from the Capanda Dam and Electric Substation to the proposed site of the Capanda Green Ammonia Plant


  • Strong Field and Greenhouse trials    Trail results underpin recently released DFS, delivering a phosphate fertiliser product from a simple flowsheet that meets the market with strong relative performance at an attractive price point for compelling economics. 


  • Next Investors Additionally helping the recent price movements was the Paid for Promotion by Next Investors announcing Minbos as there Wise Owl "Stock of the Year". Looks like they agree with me LOL.


  • DFS 85%-ownership: Spot-Price Case Post-Tax NPV10 of US$399 million and 61% IRR,,underpinned by Base Case assumptions (Minbos will have an 85% ownership interest in the project, with the other 15% held by local partners).


It looks like it may be a big 23 for Minbos and all the Angolan farmers once they start using the locally produced fertilisers.


Minbos "Our vision"

Our vision is to build a nutrient supply and distribution business that stimulates agricultural production and promotes food security in Angola and the broader middle african region.

Angola remains one of the worlds great untapped agricultural regions, with +35 million hectares of arable land (the size of France), high rainfall and some of lowest rates of fertilizer use globally. Currently, 100% of all nitrogen, phosphate and potassium (NPK) is imported.

The Angolan Government has a renewed focus on agriculture to diversify economy, promote food security and alleviate poverty.

With one of the fastest growing populations in Africa, Angola is primed to significantly scale-up its agricultural production.

QUARTERLY ACTIVITIES REPORT FOR THE PERIOD ENDING 30 JUNE 2022

Minbos continue to work towards Phosphate Fertiliser production next year, with the added interests now in Ferro Phosphate and Lithium Ferro Phosphate for Batteries as well as the Green Ammonia Project.

Im hoping for positives with the new involvement of the Cornerstone syndicate of investors led by Mr. LIANG Feng, the Chairman of Shanghai Jayson New Energy Materials (Jayson) the world’s largest Battery Anode Producer and Stamicarbon who have overseen more than 250 fertiliser plants and numerous Green Ammonia initiatives including the world’s first industrial-scale renewable energy Ammonia project.

"Stamicarbon are eminently qualified to help deliver what will be perhaps the most compelling Green Energy-Powered-Project Globally."

Activities Report


As part of the recent CR Next investors (S3 Consortium) were again commissioned to provide Marketing services. While I feel this is great for awareness (and they do write a good story) I do watch the influences on sentiment closely.

With the recent CR and share holder dilution we at least are now fully funded to production next year (debt funding subject to DFS conditions). The DFS is now expected in September and should be interesting with all the new developments. Plenty of Risk with Minbos and I hold for the Fertiliser story. There hasn't been any value put on the new developments yet.

Commentary may be worth a read.

Now Phosphate for batteries, Fertiliser and Green Ammonia

Minbos in a trading halt. Due to a CR and Debt Funding. It may have been better for Holders short term to see the imminent DFS first but overall a cornerstone investor helps with the derisking and should now see Minbos Fully funded to production next year.

Im watching closely as we have now had 2 CR before the DFS but I’m hoping the delays are more due to rapid developments, incorporating higher phosphate production rates and the Green Ammonia project.


Fertiliser chemicals biz Minbos Resources in $20m placement

Anthony MacdonaldSarah Thompson and Kanika Sood Jul 8, 2022 – 10.16am

Listed ammonia and phosphate explorer Minbos Resources was asking investors to chip in for a $20 million share placement, telling them it had already cornerstoned $15 million.

The two-tranche placement, of which $14.45 million was under the company’s existing placement capacity, was priced at 11¢ a share, an 18 per cent discount to the last close. It had room for $5 million in oversubscriptions, according to the term sheet.

Potential investors were told Minbos had locked in $15 million of cornerstone commitments. Of this, the term sheet said, $10.5 million was from an entity controlled by the chairman of Shanghai Putailai New Energy, the world’s largest battery anode producer.

Minbos planned to use $17 million of the placement for its Cabinda phosphate project, while $2 million would go towards working capital and $1 million towards green ammonia technical and market assessment studies.

In tandem with the share placement, Minbos said it had executed a non-binding term sheet for a US$25 million debt facility with Long March Capital to cover the remaining capital costs of the Cabinda phosphate project.

Evolution Capital was the lead manager for the placement, and called for bids by 1pm Monday.

Nitrogen Fertilizer Jumps by Record on Russian Supply Concerns

I hold both Minbos and South Harz Potash who will be helped by upward prices, Theres not much joy in positives from the current world crisis though.

ByElizabeth Elkin26 February 2022, 1:33 am AWST

Fertilizer prices are skyrocketing on concerns that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will curtail global supplies.

Prices for the popular nitrogen fertilizer urea in New Orleans surged 29% to $705 per short ton Friday, a record increase in the 45-year existence of the gauge.

Russia was the world’s largest exporter of nitrogen products as recently as last year and the potential for reduced supplies in light of U.S. and European sanctions are weighing heavily on the market.

“Reduced exports would tighten balances in Northern Hemisphere agricultural markets first,” Alexis Maxwell, an analyst for Bloomberg’s Green Markets, wrote in a report.

The risk of supply disruptions comes as fertilizer costs already are elevate because of soaring natural gas costs in Europe that prompted some manufacturers to curtail or halt production. The spike for the nutrient is stoking concerns about rising food inflation as crop prices climb.

  • Minbos may be currently priced at this advanced PFS at 10%NPV. This value was before the significant and ongoing fertiliser price rises and also developments in a Green Ammonia project.
  • DFS is due any day.
  • Strong Angolian government support and the IFDC (International Fertilizer Development Center) to get this project up and running.
  • While there has been little news on the green ammonia project, it looks like it hasn't been priced into the the current share price, but if they are able to secure there request for 200MW from the 100MW already highlighted, it may become a significant project in its own right.
  • I think the SP may already be discounted for some sovereign risk.
  • Early site works underway, Long lead items paid for a due for delivery Q2, production 2023. Low capex

Food demand from middle Africa’s expanding population is unmet by local primary agriculture.

Angola has significant unutilised arable land, high rainfall and no primary fertiliser manufacturing facility.

Our plan is to mine Phosphate Rock from the Cácata Deposit and transport it to Porto de Caio where a granulation plant will be built and operated at the industrial site to produce Enhanced Phosphate Rock (EPR) granules. The EPR granules will become the P nutrient feed stock to blend with imported Nitrogen (N), and Potassium (K) granules in NPK blending plants to exact specifications suited to Angolan crops and soils.

The Cabinda Phosphate Project is the first step in developing a high impact self-sustaining agricultural sector throughout Angola and middle Africa and the first step in alleviating poverty for millions of subsidence farmers who use no soil nutrients.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) progressing with Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) commenced.
  • IFDC farm and fertiliser market survey identifies 3 million farmers cultivating 5.5 million hectares with potential to increase fertiliser consumption by an order of magnitude.
  • Australian provisional patent application lodged for a new phosphate rock fertiliser blend, with potential to produce 100% organic phosphate fertiliser.
  • Post quarter end, purchase was approved for two key long lead items for construction of the Cabinda Phosphate Granulation Plant. A$1.5 million forward order deposit to be paid to FEECO International.

DEFINITIVE FEASIBILITY STUDY

During the quarter, the Company was actively progressing its DFS on its high-grade phosphate deposit, with ESIA now underway with a team from HCV Africa on site in Cabinda

PHOSPHATE FERTILISER PRICES

Phosphate fertiliser prices have more than doubled since the Company submitted its tender for the Cabinda Phosphate Project in late 2019. The Project sensitivity to fertiliser price movements is explained in the Scoping Study released by the Company on 26 August 2020. The Enhanced Phosphate Rock (ERP), produced for sale by the Project, includes Mono-Ammonium Phosphate (MAP)that equates to approximately half the product cost.

Currently, the ex-port warehouse price for MAP in Brazilian ports is trading at US$800, which is significantly more than the US$478 used in the Scoping Study. The Scoping Study sensitivity analysis showed the Project is most sensitive to MAP price and relatively insensitive to OPEX and CAPEX .This is important because COVID stimulus measures and supply chain impacts are expected to increase OPEX and CAPEX , but the impact on project metrics should be small compared to the positive impact of the increased MAP price. Prices can move up and down but are currently higher than the high case used in the Scoping Study.

Capitalising on rising fertiliser prices, with the price of Mono-ammonium Phosphate (MAP) currently US$780/t, more than US$300 higher than the Scoping Study benchmark price, which delivered the US$247M pre-tax NPV.

It looks like I am the only one holding a position in Minbos, I would welcome any thoughts
