Anglo Pacific has a 2% NSR royalty on all mineral products sold from the area of the Maracás Menchen project to which the royalty interest relates. The project is located 250km south-west of the city of Salvador, the capital of Bahia State, Brazil and is 99.97% owned and operated by TSX Venture Exchange listed Largo Resources Limited (‘Largo’).
The Group received income from Maracás in the six months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of 219% compared to the corresponding period in 2016 through a combination of strong production volumes and a recovery in the vanadium price.
The Maracás Menchen royalty is classified as a royalty intangible asset on the balance sheet. As such, this asset is carried at cost less amortisation and impairments. Royalty intangible assets are amortised when commercial production commences, on a straight-line basis over the expected life of mine.
