Hastings Technology Metals Ltd. announce that personnel and equipment have mobilised to the Yangibana Rare Earths Project site in readiness for early infrastructure and earthworks activities. Surface infrastructure development activities have commenced at Yangibana to advance the project towards construction prior to finalisation of key service contracts for the construction of the plant and development of the processing facilities at Yangibana and Onslow where the hydrometallurgical plant will be located. Infrastructure works that are to commence at Yangibana include the following: · Site clearing and roadworks - Initial works will focus on various site and access roadworks, topsoil clearing and storage, and ground preparation at the permanent village site. · Airstrip - earthworks to construct a 2,000m unsealed airstrip in close proximity to the village, capable of accommodating 50-seat aircraft. · Permanent village construction - design and Installation of a 300-person village, utilising previously procured and re-located buildings already onsite. · Communications link - dual band, 5 hop microwave link using new and existing 60m towers from site to the north-west highway interconnection to existing public network. Water supply from the borefield - connecting already installed bores, drilling new bores, equipping these with pumps, and constructing pipelines /transfer stations to complete the distribution system to the village and process plant. The above works have been facilitated by the re-establishment of an existing 60-person fly camp at the Yangibana Project site that will be used to house workers until the permanent village is ready for occupation early in 2022. The early works program is being conducted to support the project scope contained within the previously announced definitive feasibility study ("DFS"). Such a major infrastructure development program at this time has been made possible by a combination of Hasting's strong availability of equity funds and good progress being made with respect to the project financing debt process.
