A global commodities group, with a focus on non-ferrous metals and raw materials, has announced that it has entered into a long-term offtake agreement for zinc concentrate.

Concord Resources Ltd announced in a statement this week that it has completed the execution of an additional long-term off-take agreement for zinc concentrate with New Century Resources.

Under the agreement, New Century Resources will supply Concord with zinc concentrate produced at the company’s Century Mine Project, which ill represent around 5% of total production at the site.

The offtake agreement with Concord is the fifth agreement signed at the Century Mine project, which will begin production in Q3 2018.

The five offtakes executed to date have resulted in New Century contracting approximately 80% of its scheduled production.
