What now for Alara Resources Ltd?

Positive news for  Alara Resources.

However the proof will be in the pudding.

Some conditions still need to be met before the mining license is issued.

That said, everything seems on track. No major delays are expected..

The Al Hadeetha copper project boasts a 10-year mine life and the company plans to build a one million per annum copper concentration plant.

Indeed, it sounds like an exciting time to be a shareholder — especially considering the long copper history in Oman. But, there’s’ still a lot of work ahead.

Once the mining approval is issued — Alara Resources needs to obtain funding to commence construction for its copper plant.

The bottom line: Today’s announcement is certainly a step in the right direction for shareholders. But we’re not getting too excited just yet.
