How it's doing

Jupiter reduced its dividend payout in the half-year to August to A$0.04 per share noting the slide in the price of manganese.

The miner though said it remains committed to distributing almost all cash received from Tshipi, achieving a payout ratio of over 90% with this dividend.

"The work on cost optimisation initiatives continue, which is especially pertinent in this low manganese price environment,” said the Aussie-listed miner.

Red Rock will receive A$681,000 (approximately US$468,000 or £363,000) from the interim payout.

Losses for the year to June were £1.72mln (£78,000 profit).

What the boss says: Andrew Bell  

Kenya, the Congo and exploration at Luanshimba are the focus for 2020.

“From so low a market capitalisation, it will be difficult to disappoint, and the opportunity for progress is considerable.”
