SINGAPORE, June 12, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - BlackGold Natural Resources Limited (the "Company", and together with its subsidiaries, the "Group" or "BlackGold"), is pleased to announce that it has, through its subsidiary, PT Samantaka Batubara ("PT SB"), entered into a conditional term sheet (the "Term Sheet") with China Huadian Engineering Co., Ltd. ("China Huadian") for the joint development, construction, operation and maintenance of a 2 x 300 MW coal-fired power plant in Riau province, Indonesia (the "Project" or "Riau-1 Project").


This follows an earlier announcement by the Company on 28 December 2015 regarding BlackGold's entry into a consortium agreement with China Huadian for participation in a bid (the "Bid") to provide electric power to PT PLN (Persero) ("PLN").

Under the Term Sheet for the proposed joint venture, it is anticipated that BlackGold, its potential third party affiliate(s) and/or working partner(s), if any, and China Huadian (the "NewCo Shareholders") will hold equity interests of 44%, 5% and 51%, respectively in the proposed joint venture company. The NewCo Shareholders shall make capital contributions to the proposed joint venture company in proportion to their respective shareholdings in it, amounting to a total capital contribution that is equivalent to a maximum of 25% of the total cost of the Project. The consummation of the proposed joint venture is subject to, amongst others, the successful award of the Bid by PLN to the consortium of PT SB and China Huadian.

Pursuant to the Term Sheet, amongst others, PT SB shall negotiate the power purchase agreement with PLN and shall be appointed as the long-term exclusive supplier of coal to the Project for 30 years. China Huadian shall be appointed as the EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) and O&M (operations and maintenance) contractor, and shall secure the debt financing required for the Project.

Mr Philip Cecil Rickard, Chief Executive Officer of the Group, commented: "The signing of this Term Sheet marks the next step forward for both parties as it irons out the salient terms of the proposed joint venture between the parties. Leveraging on the capabilities of China Huadian in power engineering and BlackGold's expertise in coal mining, we look towards securing the award of the Bid for development of the Riau-1 Project."
