Investment Update


On 17 May 2017, Ivanhoe Mines Limited ("Ivanhoe") - whose share price has experienced significant volatility over recent months - announced an updated Mineral Resource estimate for its Kakula discovery on the Kamoa project in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Kakula's Indicated Mineral Resource has increased 62% to 116 million tonnes at a grade of 6.09% copper, using a 3% cut-off grade. This updated resource statement has brought the total Indicated Mineral Resource at Kamoa to 31.4 million tonnes of contained copper with a further 5.2 million tonnes of contained copper in the inferred category. An updated preliminary economic assessment is scheduled for the third quarter 2017.


During May 2017, China Polymetallic Mining Limited ("CPM") announced that it had agreed to acquire the entire share capital of Horeb Mountain Mining Company Limited ("Horeb") for RMB 98 million (£10.8 million) in cash. This was accompanied by a placing to third party investors which raised HKD 80 million (£8.0 million).


Horeb is the owner of a copper-lead mine in Mandalay State, Myanmar and the acquisition continues CPM's strategy to diversify its assets from the Shizishan lead-zinc-silver mine in Yunan province, China. Since its construction, the Shizishan mine has experienced problematic mining conditions and flooding and has failed to reach its target production rate. CPM identified Myanmar as a prospective emerging market for mining.


Previously, in December 2015, CPM acquired 90% of Harbor Star Mining Company Limited for RMB 125 million (£13.7 million) and in January 2017, CPM announced an agreement to acquire Hua Xing Global Limited for RMB 101.5 million (£11.1 million). Both of these companies also have base metal projects in Myanmar.
