EQS-News: Vulcan Energy Resources Limited: A$200 million Letter of Support received from Export Finance Australia

A$200 million Letter of Support received from Export Finance Australia

Vulcan Energy Resources Ltd. (Vulcan, ASX: VUL, FSE: VUL, the Company) is pleased to announce that it has received a conditional, non-binding Letter of Support from Export Finance Australia (EFA) for up to $200 million (~€120 million) for the upcoming financing of Phase One of Vulcan's Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project.

Managing Director and CEO Cris Moreno stated, "Noting the deepening relationship between Australia and the EU as part of the international push to develop and secure global supply chains for clean energy critical minerals, it is encouraging that we have secured substantial in principle financing support from governmentbacked export credit agencies (ECAs) both in Europe and in Australia."

"EFA's Letter of Support is encouraging and follows our successful market sounding conducted in the last few months, which has seen strong commercial and development bank support, as well as substantial in-principle ECA support for Phase One. This signal of confidence is timely and strengthens our position as we enter our project-level debt and equity financing for Phase One of the Zero Carbon LithiumTM Project in November."

"This is a tangible and powerful symbol of the sort of Australia - EU links sought as part of the Minerals Security Partnership, which includes Australia, Germany, France, the European Commission and the USA."


  • The conditional, non-binding Letter of Support of A$200 million of finance from the Australian Government's export credit agency EFA will be used towards the Phase One financing of Vulcan's Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project.
  • Following a successful market sounding period, Phase One project level debt and strategic equity financing is formally due to commence in mid-November, after completion of the Bridging Study.
  • Vulcan's Phase One financing process start is also timed to coincide with public funding applications in Germany.
  • Vulcan has already secured substantial in-principle government-backed ECA support, subject to customary conditions, from Bpifrance Assurance Export, the French ECA, SACE, the Italian ECA, and EDC, the Canadian ECA.
  • EFA's Letter of Support could be converted into a binding agreement following customary conditions and financing terms being met, including but not limited to a confirmed level of Australian content; legal, technical, market and environmental due diligence reports; and acceptable lender and other contracts in place.

Already an operational renewable energy producer, Vulcan will also provide renewable electricity and heat to local communities. Vulcan's combined geothermal energy and lithium resource is the largest in Europe[1] , with license areas focused on the Upper Rhine Valley, Germany. Strategically placed in the heart of the European electric vehicle market to decarbonise the supply chain, Vulcan is rapidly advancing the Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project to target timely market entry, with the ability to expand to meet the unprecedented demand that is building in the European markets.

Vulcan has carried out a definitive feasibility study for Phase One of its Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project ('Project'), the results of which were announced to the ASX in the announcement "Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project Phase 1 DFS Results" dated 13 February 2023 ('DFS'), ('DFS Announcement'). This announcement may include certain information relating to the DFS. The DFS is based on the material assumptions outlined in the DFS Announcement (see "Competent Person Statement" below). While Vulcan considers all of the material assumptions to be based on reasonable grounds, there is no certainty that they will prove to be correct of that the range of outcomes indicated by the DFS will be achieved. Vulcan also released an announcement entitled "Upgrade of Zero Carbon LithiumTM Project Resources" on 29 September 2023 ("Bridging Study Update") which uses the results of the DFS as a basis to update its Mineral Resources, estimated in accordance with the 2012 Edition of the Australian Code for the Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources, and Ore Reserves (JORC Code). This announcement may also include certain information relating to Phase 2 of its Project, Vulcan has not yet carried out a definitive feasibility study for Phase Two of its Project.

Competent Person Statement:

The information in this announcement that relates to Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves, and any Exploration Results and Production Targets, of Vulcan's Zero Carbon LithiumTM Project is extracted from the DFS Announcement and the Bridging Study Update, both of which are available to view on Vulcan's website at www.v-er.eu. Vulcan confirms that in respect of estimates of Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves, and any Exploration Results and Production Targets, included in this announcement:

  • it is not aware of any new information or data that materially affects the information included in the original market announcement, and that all material assumptions and technical parameters underpinning the estimates in the original market announcement continue to apply and have not materially changed;
  • the form and context in which the Competent Person's findings are presented have not been materially modified from the original market announcement; and
  • all material assumptions underpinning any production targets (and any forecast financial information derived from such production targets) included in this announcement continue to apply and have not materially changed.
