Polo Resources Limited

10 April 2019

This announcement contains inside information as defined in Article 7 of the EU Market Abuse Regulation No 596/2014 and has been announced in accordance with the Company's obligations under Article 17 of that Regulation.

10 April 2019

Polo Resources Limited

("Polo" or the "Company")


Polo Resources Limited (AIM: POL), the multi-sector investment company with interests in oil, gold, coal, copper, phosphate, lithium, iron and vanadium, notes that its 18.40% investee company Celamin Holdings Limited ("Celamin") (ASX: CNL) has advised the total amount owing by former Tunisian partner as the company begins the process of recovering its interests and the costs and damages awarded.

Celamin received an award from the sole arbitrator of the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce ("ICC") on 29 November 2017 ordering the:

   --     Return of Celamin's 51% interest in the Chaketma Phosphate Project; and 

-- Payment of damages and costs by Celamin's former Tunisian partner, Tunisian Mining Services ("TMS").

The Court of Appeal of Tunis issued orders enforcing the award on 4 April 2019(1) .

As previously announced, the various damages and costs awarded totalled approximately US$4m. TMS had 30 days from 29 November 2017 to pay this amount failing which a 5.5% penalty interest rate would be added daily until payment. For clarity, the interest is simple interest not compounding.

Celamin is yet to receive any payment of the damages and costs awarded and it is not clear when payment will be made. While TMS continues to be in breach of the award issued on 29 November 2017, as enforced by the Court of Appeal of Tunis(1) , Celamin provides the below outline to enable shareholders to understand the amount TMS currently owes Celamin.


On 29 November 2017 the sole arbitrator of the ICC awarded Celamin the following damages and costs:

   1.     ASX announcement 5 April 2019. 
   2.     Exchange rates as at 5 April 2019. 

Exchange rates have obviously changed since late 2017 and will continue to impact the quantum of damages:

 Damages (excluding penalty      December 2017   April 2019 
 Euro/US$ Exchange Rate          1.18            1.12

                                --------------  ----------- 

The penalty interest amount increases by US$602 per day and as at 5 April 2019 the penalty interest amount totals US$296,000 (A$416,000) meaning the total amount currently payable by TMS to Celamin is US$4.3m (A$6.05m).

Celamin intends to declare the total amount owing by TMS on a regular basis.

In addition, TMS owes Celamin A$160,000 for a 2014 debt which increases the total amount claimed to US$4.4m (A$6.2m). The A$160,000 debt remains subject to the outcome of an ongoing legal case.

Celamin is also pursuing civil and criminal claims in Tunisia against individuals and organisations in relation to the fraudulent transfer of Celamin's 51% interest in the Chaketma Phosphate Project in February 2015.
