Under the agreement, IGL will pay Mt Anketell’s shareholders the purchase price in addition to 100 million IGL options. The project comprises two exploration licences and the property is crossed by the North West Coastal Highway, gas pipeline, power transmission line and railway, and is 10 kilometres from a suitable shipping port.
