Aim-listed nickel/copper explorer Amur Minerals has entered into a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) with global supply chain solutions expert GEFCO to address Amur’s rail and shipping transport requirements for project construction, operational supply support and saleable product delivery to the Asian markets – China, Japan and Korea.

GEFCO will aid with Amur’s multimodal transport by rail, road, sea and air for construction and infrastructure projects; supply of mining operation equipment; domestic and international deliveries of saleable products by rail and sea; loading, unloading works and customs handling for both inbound and outbound flows.

Further, Amur will also be aided with its compliance with operational supply chain requirements, provision of support and technology; compliance with rail siding requirements and development; and transport and logistics advisory support to third parties.

Amur is focused on its Kun-Manie nickel/copper project in Russia. With Kun-Manie’s access along the Baikal-Amur mainline railway, multiple options are available for transport by rail both over land and to multiple seaports for inbound and outbound shipments, to which GEFCO can aid well, since it is 75%-owned by JSC Russian Railways.

Amur CEO Robin Young commented that the transport and logistical requirements for Kun-Manie are multifaceted, covering three key considerations: project construction, mine operation and sale of product.

“Discussions have been ongoing between Amur and GEFCO representatives on these considerations and the MoC represents the start of the next stage, namely, developing definitive transport and logistic solutions.

“It is also important, given the complexity of global transport and logistics, that we have GEFCO providing advisory assistance in our discussions with other parties."

GEFCO Russia general director Valeria Seledkova added that the development of Kun-Manie will contribute significantly to the regional development of the Far East.
