Follow up drilling over major mineralised prospects in Burkina Faso and Western Australia projects
What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
Main challenge is to advance several projects at the same time while trying to focus on key target areas. Need to ensure all projects are getting sufficient work and exploration budget. Having an experienced local exploration in Burkina Faso means that we can explore all year without requiring a large ex-pat presence.
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
Arrow is undertaking a considerable amount of exploration drilling with the potential for a significant gold discovery. The company has an enterprise value of around $6 million, making it highly leveraged to success.
