Savannah Resources and Rio Tinto have agreed to a consortium arrangement to expedite the project activities at the former’s Jangamo project and the latter’s Chilubane and Mutamba projects in Mozambique.

The two parties have reached an agreement to transfer legal ownership of these projects to a consortium company, following the grant of a mining lease.
