We are a private, independent gold mining company. We blend old school practices with modern technology, methods and thinking to develop projects that the rest of the industry, simply can't touch. We operate counter-current, with high-grade smaller mines, innovative production techniques and are porting successful private capital structures from other industries. This allows private investors to participate DIRECTLY in gold mining, in ways they haven't been able to, for 100 years.
We are creating a new channel for private individual investment in gold, allowing our capital partners to have the best of both worlds; an investment-grade return, and the safety and security of gold in these turbulent economic times. We fund the development of our mines, through the pre-sale of a portion of our production. This allows our investors to pre-purchase gold at a discount with a venture-captial rate of return, all the benefits of gold, and none of the risks of mining it themselves.
If you want gold in your portfolio today your only options are: to purchase physical gold, buy stock in a publicly traded mining company or to mine it yourself. There have been few if any, opportunities to invest in a private mine and receive physical gold distributions. This is the breakthrough opportunity we're offering individual investors and this is our target audience.
These folks typically are high net worth, sophisticated family-offices and individuals who are making their own investment decisions and recognise the value of gold in navigating the financially turbulent times ahead, rather than folks who are managing other peoples money. Our investors are not standard-playbook lemmings, they are self reliant enough not to put their full trust in markets or governments and may be strongly weighted to Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern investors because their of their cultural affinity for gold.
