Walkabout warns of short-term impact on Tanzania exports following cyclone

ASX-listed Walkabout Resources says its Lindi Jumbo graphite mine, in Tanzania, was only mildly impacted on by heavy rains and a brief power interruption as a result of cyclone Hidaya, which passed over the country over the weekend.

However, the coastal road from the project to the capital Dar es Salaam has suffered damage and, while there are alternative routes to transport graphite to port, this will involve significantly longer trucking distances.

“While there will be short-term impacts on the export of graphite concentrate from the Lindi Jumbo mine, our current assessment is that these are expected to be only minor.

“The safety of our people is highest priority and we are pleased to report that our workforce is safe with no reported injuries to personnel,” says Walkabout MD and CEO Andrew Cunningham.
