What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
Bluestone Resources is continuing to derisk the permitted Cerro Blanco project as we progress towards construction, including completion of a project financing package, evaluation of contractor and surface facilities execution models as well as underground mining contractor options, conversion of resources into mineable reserves, continued HR readiness and CSR efforts.
We see a path forward with the support from our strong shareholder base, the Lundin Family and CD Capital, combined with strong economics and low initial capital to make Cerro Blanco an attractive opportunity in the gold space.
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
Bluestone Resources is rapidly advancing the high-grade Cerro Blanco project, which is permitted for construction and operations with more than $200M invested in project by previous owners, a robust Feasibility Study with strong economics, a strong shareholder base, and has demonstrated exploration success and will generate more free cash flow than the current market capitalization of the company in the first year of production.
