Xtract Resources PLC Snapshot



From the appointment of the new management team in 2013, the strategy to become a diversified mining house with positive cash flow has been achieved and the team is striving to further build on this growth in order to transition into a mid tier Gold and Copper producer.

     • Xtract has two current projects:
          • Chépica - gold & copper deposit in Chile with production and cash flow
          • O’Kiep – a sulphide copper tailings project in South Africa

     • Focus remains on low cost, high margin shallow/surface deposits, mitigating against commodity price fluctuation risk

     • Smaller asset size requires lower capital injection/risk and management focus

     • Asset criteria – generate US$10m to US$30m profit per annum

     • High quality management team with a track record of creating value for shareholders

     • Management team led by former Pan African Resources CEO Jan Nelson who has over 15 years of mining expertise, with a strong track record of delivering shareholder value
