Gold price weakness
Our project operates in an historically overlooked jurisdiction. Our challenge is to educate and highlight the value and infrastructure inherent in the region, not always understood by the investment community
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
Matador provides the investor access to an undervalued (compared to peers) a dual path to value accretion; 1) an advancing development story, based around an expanding resource base in a first world jurisdiction and; 2) exposure to a significant greenfields exploration package that has exposure to a productive regional controlling structure, with proven capacity to host camp scale gold deposits, within a world class mining jurisdiction
