Black Iron (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN), a Canadian iron ore exploration and development company, is focused on securing financing and land to start construction of its low-cost Shymanivske iron ore project in the historically rich Kryvyi Rih region of Ukraine. An article discussing the company reads, “Black Iron has been pushing to begin construction at its Shymanivske project by the end of the year and is focused on raising capital to fund construction and securing essential land-surface rights for the central Ukraine site. The company recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Glencore, one of the world’s largest commodity traders, to make an investment toward funding construction of the project in exchange for securing the offtake of up to the full phase one planned annual production of four million tons. Additionally, the MOU outlines cooperation between Black Iron and Glencore to leverage their relationships to source the balance of funds required to construct the project. Debt finance discussions are ongoing with international financial institutions and Europe-based banks, which have shown interest in the projected robust economics of Black Iron’s project due to its low operating cost and construction capital intensity. . . . Solid progress is also being made to secure land that’s essential for construction of the processing plant, tailings and waste-rock stockpiles. On March 14, Black Iron announced that Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense has developed a plan to transfer the land being sought.”

Jul 21, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president and his defeated election rival met Saturday for the first time since the divisive April poll and rode together on a recently opened subway in the capital, signaling a calming of political tensions in the world's third-largest democracy. In a choreographed spectacle, President Joko Widodo and former special forces general Prabowo Subianto met and embraced at a gleaming new subway station in Jakarta and sat together chatting on a short train trip. Subianto had refused to accept the election result and threatened a "people power" uprising. He alleged massive and systematic fraud, but his legal...

Hong Kong court throws out ex-leader's misconduct conviction

Jul 21, 2019

HONG KONG — A Hong Kong court on Wednesday threw out former Chief Executive Donald Tsang's conviction for misconduct relating to a property deal while in office. Tsang was released in January after serving a 12-month sentence for failing to disclose plans to rent a luxury apartment from a businessman granted a government broadcasting license. A panel of five judges on the Court of Final Appeal ruled that the judge at Tsang's trial had not given jurors sufficient directions on assessing whether he had deliberately concealed information before finding him guilty in 2017. The judges also ordered that no retrial...

Ex-Filipino diplomat who sued Xi barred entry to Hong Kong

Jul 21, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — A former Philippine foreign secretary who accused in an international court Chinese President Xi Jinping of crimes against humanity said he was barred from entering Hong Kong on Friday and held at the airport for hours.

Del Rosario said he was held at an airport immigration lounge for about six hours before being told that he was denied entry without any explanation and put on a Cathay...

When disaster hits, Indonesia's Islamists are first to help

Jul 21, 2019

PALU, Indonesia — The flags hanging outside Anwar Ragaua's house have drawn warnings from police, but the wiry 50-year-old vows he's not taking them down. After all, the police weren't there to help when he was the sole fisherman in his village to survive the tsunami that inundated the Indonesian city of Palu at dusk on Sept. 28. Nor was the government. Nor were the aid organizations that swept into the stricken region in remote central Sulawesi. Instead, the first people to offer him hope — and a new boat — were deployed by a hardline Islamic group notorious for...

China issues travel alerts, slams US 'interference'

Jul 21, 2019

BEIJING — China issued a pair of travel warnings for the U.S. on Tuesday and slammed what it called "interference" in its internal affairs. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang accused the U.S. of acting in bad faith in trade negotiations and said any attempts to interfere or undermine China's stability would be "doomed to fail." The volleys of criticism between the two largest economies leave them further than ever from resolving their standoff over U.S. complaints that Beijing resorts to unfair trade practices and unscrupulous methods to obtain advanced technologies. The Chinese comments followed a statement from the U.S. Trade...
