Arafura flags $28m impairment

Rare earths company Arafura Resources says it will incur a $27.7 million non-cash impairment charge against its Nolans project in the Northern Territory.

In a statement, Gavin Lockyer-led Arafura said it would be disclosing the non-cash charge in its upcoming half-year report, against the evaluation assets of Nolans.

“The anticipated impairment charge has resulted from a review of the deferred evaluation costs for Nolans and specifically those incurred in the development of the now superseded hydrochloric acid pre-leach flow sheet,” Arafura said in a statement.
