What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?

Greater political + community issues in Peru, high cost of capital

Ongoing consultation in communities supporting local artisans , road building and investment in community. Reduced burn by shutting down drill program (drill remains at site) awaiting arbitration judgement in equity partner Winshear Gold (WINS seeking +CDN$140M in damages). 

What do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?

Palamina has participation in 9 projects in the Puno Orogenic Gold Belt with participation in two projects in drill discovery phase with tier 1 gold deposit potential. Battery metal Galena high grade silver copper play with great neighbours and infrasturcture. Maintaining our 19.9% holding in Winshear Gold with conclusion to fully funded arbitration in Tanzania scheduled for Feb 2023 with +CDN$140M in damages being sought. 

What are the top 3 key investor takeaways?

1) Participation in drilling at PA Usicayos Gold Project & WINS Gaban gold projects 
2) Possible non dilutive financing on collection of judgement or settlement in 2023 of arbitration in Tanzania by Winshear Gold (PA owns 19.9% equity stake in WINS) 
3) Goldspot and Eric Sprott purchased 15% in recent June 2021 $5M capital raise / 65M shares out. President Palamina + wife has invested over $2.3M cash in PA
