Lava Blue - Business updates:

Mini-Plant Project
Lava Blue is proceeding to complete the mini-plant at the Redlands Energy Science Park. Commissioning the mini-plant will significantly revalue the Company. Lava Blue will be the only enterprise in the world running a mini-plant that can demonstrate repeated production of HPA from kaolin.

Additional Grant Funding from IM CRC for Mini-Plant project
Since winning a $645,000 grant in September 2019, Lava Blue and research partners at QUT have been able to maintain progress across a number of fronts, including demonstrating early outcomes of machine learning in manufacturing of HPA. This substantial progress, along with the relocation of the mini-plant facility from the original small site at Banyo to the Redlands Energy Science Park, has resulted in the IM CRC increasing the total grant to $1,045,000.

Progress on Licencees
Lava Blue is pursuing a two-pronged commercialisation strategy. While planning to be a primary producer of at least 5,000 tonnes of HPA per annum, it is also seeking to develop a network of licencees for the HPA process.

Lava Blue Acquires Cloncurry Industrial Minerals
Lava Blue has held an option over the acquisition of Cloncurry Industrial Minerals Pty Ltd (CIM), which holds exploration permits over the HJ Reef. In May of 2020 the option was exercised, and Lava Blue purchased all of the outstanding capital of CIM by exchange of shares.
