Adamant DRI Commences Sales of Direct Reduced Iron Following 2-year Coal-to-Natural Gas and Production Upgrade
ZHANGJIAKOU, CHINA–(Marketwired – Apr 27, 2017) – Adamant DRI Processing and Minerals Group (OTCQB: ADMG), based in Hebei Province, People’s Republic of China, a producer and supplier of direct reduced iron (DRI) feedstock for China’s steel manufacturing and processing industries, announces the restart of production and initial sales following a 2-year production modernization period.
Current sales, from one of the Company’s two Huaxin-based lines, are products used by locally owned steel manufacturers as the Company progresses toward being able to deliver consistent product with the high quality metallic content required to obtain long term purchase orders from larger enterprises including state owned producers such as Hebei Iron & Steel Group.
The 2-year retooling effort, undertaken in response to restrictive environmental policies adopted in China was led by Dr. Ti Chang Sun, professor of mineral processing engineering at the University of Science and Technology Beijing, a leading authority on China steel manufacturing.
Plant upgrades include a power source conversion from coal to natural gas, installation of a full production line including rotary kiln, fine filtering, reductive roasting and pressing equipment.
Given the completion of the conversion to natural gas and the upgrade of the Company’s plants, the Company reaffirms its overall business outlook for 2017, which calls for revenue of $16-20 million.
