It's Azure Capital's job to find the funding solution for Strandline at Fungoni

Stronger mineral sands pricing has seen Fungoni's pre-tax net present value increase by about US$6 million to $48.7 million and the internal rate of return (pre-tax) improve to 61%.

However, development capital has also increased, albeit only slightly from $30 million to $32 million.

Strandline said the project financing process was well underway but gave no further details.

While the mining licence was granted in late August, Strandline said early last month that Tanzanian officials were going to "provide further clarity on the banking and investment provisions in the new Mining Act" to enable Strandline to advance project funding.

Strandline started the current quarter with A$2.8 million cash.

Shares in Strandline were unchanged at 11c in early trade, capitalising the company at $32 million.

The stock has been drifting lower over the past few months from levels around 17c in July.
