What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
Exploration is always a risk – we are overcoming them by a thoughtful, logical approach to prospecting and exploring on our properties. We’re not trying to rush the program, but learning from our results.
Share liquidity – we have a relatively tight float – challenge to manage at this time
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
We have two exciting new discoveries on our properties, which are on land that has had little exploration, on a prolific, gold-bearing shear zone that resembles the Abitibi in Canada. We’re well funded, and management and board are dedicated to creating shareholder value.
