Kolar Gold (LON:KGLD). Kolar Gold Limited (“Kolar Gold”) is a gold exploration and goldmine development company primarily focused on India.  Its shares are listed on the London Stock Exchange AIM Market under the ticker KGLD.

At the end of July 2016, under Kolar Gold’s newly appointed executive team, the Company has expanded its scope to source a cashflow generative gold project in a separate jurisdiction to India, as well as adding a complementary fintech opportunity that.leverages off Kolar Gold’s involvement in gold in India.   Kolar Gold’s primary focus is to explore and develop gold opportunities and participate in the development from an early stage of one of the world’s most prospective gold resource regions, India, which is as yet under explored and with minimal production, yet massive consumption.

Kolar Gold’s aim has been and is to become a leading Indian gold exploration and development company benefiting both its shareholders and the wider community in which it operates, in the long term.   Kolar Gold is progressing its activities through its 20+% ownership of Geomysore Services (India) Private Limited (“GMSI”) and by pursuing the revival of the historic Bharat Gold Mines jointly with the Bharat Gold Mine Limited (“BGML”) ex-employee united unions, and adding additional opportunities to Kolar Gold’s stable.

Ortac Resources (LON:OTC). Ortac Resources is an AIM listed exploration and development company focused on natural resource projects. The Company’s flagship asset is the 1.32 million ounce gold equivalent resource in Slovakia. It has also diversified its portfolio through its strategic investment in Andiamo Exploration Limited, a private company with gold and copper exploration projects in Eritrea; Zamsort Limited, a private company with copper and cobalt licenses in Zambia and CASA Mining Limited, a private company with 1.2 million ounce gold project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Licences in Slovakia

The Kremnica Mining Licensea Area hosts the Šturec Deposit which has a JORC Code compliant ore resource  of 1.32 million ounces of gold equivalent, with over 1 Moz in the Measured and Indicated categories. An SRK Pre-Feasibility Study estimates 873koz Au equivalent of recoverable metal in Proven and Probable Ore Reserves at an annualised production rate of over 70,000 Au oz eq. with cash costs of less than $600 per ounce. Whilst discussions with potential local partners and supporters continue, the emphasis has been to continue to secure the companies rights over the 873 koz Au Eq. reserve.

Andiamo Licence

Andiamo Exploration Limited is a private company based in London, exploring for resources in Eritrea, East Africa and can be found here: Andiamo is focused on Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) and gold deposits in Eritrea, East Africa and at present Ortac holds a 27% stake in the company.

Zamsort Limited

Zamsort is a private Zambian registered company. The Kalaba Cu-Co Project, 100% owned by Zamsort and located approximately 900 km from Lusaka, in Mwinilunga, North Western Province, is well within the trending arm of the major geological structure known as the Lufilian Arc (copper belt), on the western flank of the Kabompo Dome.

Ortac has exercised its right and issued a request to Zamsort Limited (‘Zamsort’) to convert the Secured Convertible Loan Notes and the No.2 Loan Notes into 19.35% of the issued share capital of Zamsort. Zamsort has advised the Company that they may wish to make changes to their share capital structure in order to facilitate further funding.  Ortac has advised Zamsort that it would be cooperative should a reorganisation be of benefit to the financing of Zamsort, and in the best interests of Ortac.

CASA Mining Limited

Ortac currently holds just under 20% of CASA Mining Limited (, which holds the rights to three contiguous mining licenses totalling 133km2 located in the South Kivu province in the eastern Congo gold belt of the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”). Over the last six years over $30m was spent developing these licenses. At CASA’s most advanced project, the Akyanga deposit, SRK has reported an initial Mineral Inferred Resource of 1.2 Moz @1.7 g/t Au. The deposit is still open ended along strike and down dip and has had a scoping study completed on it that demonstrates the potential viability of a 100,000oz gold per year operation. Post the end of the period CASA provided an update to shareholders on an initial smaller operation requiring a substantially lesser amount of upfront capital. Additionally, it provided a resource update that demonstrated the potential for its project to host a resource well in excess of 2 million ounces.

Eurasia Mining PLC (LON:EUA) is an international mineral exploration company, listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM), currently operating in Russia.

Eurasia’s stated objective is to explore for platinum group metals (PGMs) and gold through self-funded own exploration targets and joint venture partnerships with strategic operators and local partners.

Eurasia’s established focus is exploration and development of platinum, palladium and gold projects in Russia. Its aim is to deliver value to its shareholders by leveraging the significant experience of its directors and management team to advance our licences and to acquire new projects.

The company continues to advance its two key licences at West Kytlim in the Central Urals and Monchetundra on the Kola Peninsula, and retains an option, in a joint venture with Metal Tiger PLC, over the Semenovsky gold tailings project in the southern Urals.

In West Kytlim platinum and gold mining commenced in October 2016, with the prospect of at least 10 years of production lying ahead.

At Monchetundra on the Kola Peninsula, Eurasia’s interests in hard rock projects date to 2006 when it acquired three licences from local vendors, two of which have since been surrendered. By 2008, operating in a joint venture with Anglo Platinum, Eurasia had drilled a total of 16,000m of drill core. Several targets including West Nittis and Loipishnune were identified by early drilling programmes. 2011 drilling revealed the high grade near surface West Nittis target within a series of chalcopyrite-rich veins and veinlets in brecciated shear zones. This target was further developed in 2013 and again in the 2015/16 programme which included 4,500m of drill core and an extensive shallow soil sampling program focusing on both West Nittis and the Loipishnune targets. A resource calculation and feasibility study covering both targets is scheduled for completion before end of 2016, and this will form the basis of an application for a discovery certificate which will guarantee mining rights.

On 10th October 2016 Eurasia Mining announced that an Engineering Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (“EPC”) turnkey contract had been signed in relation to its Monchetundra project, between Eurasia’s 80% subsidiary, Closed Joint Stock Company “Terskaya Gornaya Kompaniya” (‘TGK’) which holds the Monchetundra licence and Sinosteel, a Chinese state owned group operating primarily in mining, trading, equipment manufacturing and engineering. The contract value totals US$176,000,000 with the loan covering 85% of the contract value and is for the development of two platinum group metal (‘PGM’) deposits as open pittable targets within the Monchedundra licence, one at West Nittis and the second at Loipishnune.

At Semenovsky tailings project, Eurasia, operating in JV with Metal Tiger Plc, are engaged in an extensive metallurgical testing program, as part of ongoing due diligence. The project presents as a near term producing target with very low capital requirements, operating costs, and inherent geological and/or reserve risk. A low tech cyanide leach circuit has demonstrated very robust economics which are now being further proofed and optimized ahead of an investment decision. Under the Heads of Terms with local company Golden Sands, the EUA MTR JV retains a right to meet capital investments and acquire up to 67% of the project. Earlier in 2016 the reserve was confirmed as Russian C2 Standard, 2.9m tones of material grading 1.2 g/t gold and 16.4 g/t silver.

Mkango logo


Mkango Resources Ltd. (TSX-V / AIM: MKA) Mkango listed on TSX-V in January 2011 and on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange in June 2016.

Mkango is focused on the development of the Songwe Hill rare earth project and Thambani uranium project in Malawi. Songwe has advanced from an early stage in 2010 through two phases of drilling, resource definition and extensive metallurgical test work to completion of a pre-feasibility study in September 2014, updated in November 2015, one of only a handful of rare earths projects globally to have advanced beyond this stage and amongst the lowest capex in the sector.

The project is an open pittable deposit with long mine life, has significant expansion options, favourable mineralogy and a rare earth mix geared to the high growth permanent magnet sector, and is located in a strategically important rare earths mineral province.

The main exploration targets at Thambani are uranium, niobium and tantalum. In January 2015, Mkango announced the first set of assay results of 142 soil and rock chip samples from 9 trenches, which returned variably anomalous uranium, niobium and tantalum values in most trenches, ranging up to 4.70 % U3O8, 3.25 % Nb2O5 in soil and up to 0.42 % U3O8, 0.78 % Nb2O5 and 972 ppm Ta2O5 in rock chips. In July 2016, the Corporation announced the results of an airborne geophysical survey covering approximately two thirds of the licence area, highlighting a number of significant radiometric and magnetic anomalies.

The company’s corporate strategy is to develop new sustainable sources of rare earth elements and other minerals geared to growth in the low carbon “green” economy, technology and the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

BMR Group Logo


BMR Group PLC (AIM: BMR) is focused on the recovery of lead and zinc from the tailings deposits of Zambia’s oldest mine at  Kabwe, Zambia.

The Company has successfully developed a proprietary acid/brine leach process that enables it to achieve high metal recoveries from the different tailings deposits at Kabwe, comprising principally wash plant tailings and leach plant residues.

BMR submitted its EIA (environmental impact assessment) to ZEMA (Zambia Environmental Management Agency) in late 2015 which was approved by ZEMA in mid-2016.

BMR has raised equity finance for building the plant to process the tailings, in addition to which BMR has entered into an off take agreement for the sale of the products, comprising lead, zinc and zinc sulphate heptahydrate; furthermore  BMR has entered into a loan facility agreement for $5.2 million to ensure funding for the plant construction and finance for the initial sales.  BMR has recently commenced construction of the plant, expected to be commissioned in 2017.

BMR is also working on conversion of its other tailings for revenue generation including the Waelz Kiln Slag for sales into the construction section and processing of the Imperial Smelter Furnace slag which contains vanadium.



Conroy Gold Logo


Conroy Gold and Natural Resources plc (AIM: CGNR).  Conroy Gold is an exploration Company whose objective is to make very substantial returns for shareholders through the discovery and development of economic gold deposits in the North of Ireland and in Northern Finland, in both of which areas geological potential for large gold deposits has been demonstrated.

The Company’s primary focus is on its 100% owned licences (c.100,000Ha) in Ireland which are within the highly prospective Longford – Down Massif. The Company has discovered a 50 km (30 mile) gold trend and is targeting a multi-million ounce gold resource within the Clay Lake – Clontibret district (325Ha) in the northeastern end of its licence area. The 50 km trend contains a series of gold targets ranging from grass roots to advanced stage exploration.

The Company is targeting high tonnage and high – contained ounce deposits. Examples of deposits that appear to have similarities to the mineralisation at Clay Lake and Clontibret are the orogenic Macraes mine in New Zealand and the intrusion – related Murantau mine in Uzbekistan.

Ireland is a mining and business friendly country and in 2015 came first in Europe for Mining Investment Attractiveness in the prestigous Fraser Institute global rankings.

The management team has a proven track record of successful exploration and development of world class deposits which became producing gold and zinc mines including the discovery of the Galmoy ore bodies in County Kilkenny in Ireland, which led to Ireland becoming an international zinc province.

Conroy Gold’s exploration in Ireland has led to the discovery in Ireland of a new European gold district. This extends for 30 miles (50 km) across counties Armagh, Monaghan and Cavan.
