What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
Lack of financing to procced with explorations. To mitigate this, we raised MSEK 15 debt in September 2019 and proceed with equity financing. In addition, we have a receivable of MUSD 6 from a previous sale of an exploration asset, which falls for payment during 2020-2021.
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
With a market cap of MUSD 11, one 1.8 Moz gold project ready for sale and another promising project being in the exploration phase, Kopy Goldfields is well positioned for a value increase. We have a track record of >10 years succesful exploration in one of the most prospective worldwide gold provinces, Lena Goldfields. The area is currently producing 0.5% of the annual global gold output, which will increase to 2% with the announced start of the Sukhoy Log mine (60 Moz deposit) in the mid-2020s. Kopy Goldfields has a land position corresponding to 31% of the total gold properties in the area.
