What is your rationale for attending 121 Mining Investment?
The main aim of attending 121 is to broaden market awareness of the Company and to grow its institutional investor base in capital markets outside of Australia.
Fully funded from its cash reserves (AUD 2.5 million), the Company’s 2019 drilling program is currently underway, targeting deposits of a sufficient scale to meet the Company’s objective of becoming a copper producer.
Recently, the Company announced drilling had intersected the D’Kar /Ngwako Pan Formation footwall contact in Botswana, significantly reducing the depth to potential copper-silver mineralisation.
