This presentation may include certain forward-looking statements concerning the future performance of our business, its operations and its financial performance and condition, as well as management's objectives, strategies, beliefs and intentions. Forward-looking statements are frequently identified by such words as "may", "plan", "expect", "anticipate", "estimate", "intend“ and similar words referring to future events and results. Forward-looking statements are based on the current opinions and expectations of management. All forward-looking information is inherently uncertain and subject to a variety of assumptions, risks and uncertainties, including the speculative nature of mineral exploration and development, fluctuating commodity prices, competitive risks and the availability of financing and as described in more detail in our recent securities filings available at www.sedar.com.

Strategy and approach
Strategy and Approach

“Successful gold exploration begins in the best mining camps”

Focus on areas in the developed world which are

  • mining friendly

  • where there is good infrastructure

    Mitigate risk through collaboration / deal structure


In 2006 sold South African assets to focus on the leading gold camps of North America.

Until funds were received from South African asset disposals, company was reliant on internally generated funds.

Exploration commitments have been farmed out under claw-back arrangements and option agreements, or funded through organic cash generation.
