Agbaja BFS progress
KGE intends to undertake a bankable feasibility study (BFS) at the Agbaja Cast Steel Project in Nigeria, and would like to have results by the end of 2020 to support equity funding and financing for the project.
In August, the company had been handed a review on capital and operating costs for the project which was conducted on test work by Tenova.
The review demonstrated that under pilot plant conditions the Kogi Iron ore was successfully able to be converted to a steel grade suitable to make quality steel bullets.
