What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
Uranium price is a key risk. Mitigation: Dasa is a large and high grade deposit, so it is likely to be one of the first projects to be developed in a rising price environment. GLO is also looking to enhance shareholder value by assessing ways to reduce capex or opex via a number of trade-off and metallurgical studies
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
GLO is a compelling investment because it is holds a Tier 1 uranium asset, both large and high grade, that is in the company for ‘free’. The cash flow from the Turkish recycling facility that produces zinc is a) worth more than the current mkt cap of GLO and b) enables development of the asset through the Feasbility and Financing stage without significant equity dilution
