SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Aug 25, 2014) - Key Capital Corporation ("Key Capital" or the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: KCPC) is pleased to advise that the Company has entered into funding agreements for the following projects, after completing initial due diligence and site visits:
1. The Doves Nest, Colorado Gold Project has secured gold mining tenements in the Idaho Springs, Century City historic gold mining district. The tenements include numerous ore dumps together with underground rights. All Mining permits are granted. The current pilot plant, which has been bulk testing legacy ore dumps, is proposed to be replaced with a 400tpd plant to commence its permitted commercial production. The Project requires funding of US$6 million, and the Company will hold a 35% interest in the Project.
2. The Chloride Copper Mine in Arizona ceased operation in 1993 when copper prices were below US$1.00/lb. To recommence production operations at the mine, the Project only requires US$13 million to refurbish existing infrastructure and plant. The existing core infrastructure value is conservatively estimated at US$10 million to US$15 million. Following funding, the Company will initially hold a 40% interest in the Project, reducing to 35% following full loan repayment.
3. The Jayapura Nickel Project in Papua, Indonesia seeks to process nickel laterite and underlying saprolite; the concentrate will then either be sold within Indonesia, or the Project interests will enter into agreement for rotary kiln arc furnace value-add processing through a joint venture or similar structure. The Project requires a first phase funding commitment of US$3.25 million to proceed and a further US$5.25 million in a second phase funding. Following funding and an earn-out payment to a current major owner, Key Capital will hold a 75% interest in the Project.
4. The GeoGlobal Oil & Gas Project has interests in two major Exploration & Production (E&P) basins in India. The project partners have already invested over US$3 billion in these basins, and the onshore interests, in which 14% and 20% Participating Interests are held, are now producing oil. The offshore gas field, in which a 10% (5% net) Carried Interest is held, commenced gas production earlier this month. Current production has significant potential for expansion. Through Key Capital's agreement with GeoGlobal, the Company has provided funding of US$100,000 and support services estimated at US$200,000 over the past four months to stabilize the company and to resolve partner and former partner interests in India. The Company's funding and support has proved critical to GeoGlobal's economic survival. Project funding will commence with a first phase of US$6 million, followed by a second phase second phase of US$9 million. A potential third phase of an additional US$15 million, if required, would fund production expansion. Key Capital has agreement to 42% of the revenue rights of the Indian onshore production and, further, has an option to acquire a 65% interest in the GeoGlobal corporate, or equivalent project interest, for US$3.5 million.
Key Capital continues to progress a number of other projects in its pipeline and will advise as finalized.
