    Stocktube video - KEFI Minerals chairman discusses placing as Goldfields deal falls through

    Harry Anagnostaras-Adams, executive chairman of KEFI Minerals (LON:KEFI), says the lapsing of the Goldfields agreement is a ‘bump in the road’, but says the company has ‘moved on’.

    The gold explorer has started on an alternative financing plan after the Goldfields Resources Fund missed its final deadline for a £3mln investment. KEFI has instead carried out a placing to raise £666,000 at 1p to follow £800,000 raised at the same price in March. Directors are preparing to inject a further £250,000.

    KEFI’s chairman says Goldfields just ‘couldn’t keep up with our timetable’.

Company Statement

London-listed company KEFI Minerals plc (AIM: KEFI) is an exploration and development company focussed on gold and copper deposits, primarily in the highly prospective Arabian-Nubian Shield.

KEFI Minerals is currently progressing feasibility studies on two gold projects:


•         100%-owned Tulu Kapi project in Ethiopia with a Probable Ore Reserve of 1.0 million ounces and Mineral Resources totalling 1.9 million ounces; and

•         40%-owned Jibal Qutman project in Saudi Arabia with Mineral Resources totalling 0.5 million ounces.


As the operator of these joint-venture projects, KEFI Minerals is well positioned to develop these projects prudently while continuing to add value through further exploration.


Our aim is to create wealth for our shareholders by developing into profitable mines the gold and base metal deposits that the Company has discovered or acquired in a cost-effective manner.


Since KEFI Minerals was formed in 2006, we have rapidly evaluated and relinquished a number of exploration properties as well as acquiring new projects.


The highly prospective Arabian-Nubian Shield has been the Company’s primary focus since 2008 when it commenced exploration activities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.


Our prudent approach is exemplified by the cost-effective acquisition of the Tulu Kapi project in the Democratic Republic of Ethiopia in late 2013. The £4.5 million cost of acquiring 75% of this advanced project equates to only $10 per reserve ounce and provides the information collected from historical expenditure of more than $50 million.


In September 2014, KEFI Minerals acquired the remaining 25% of Tulu Kapi for £750,000 and 50 million KEFI shares.


KEFI Minerals is now positioned as the operator of two gold development projects as well as a cost-effective explorer of its portfolio in the highly prospective Arabian-Nubian Shield.


With the appropriate mix of technical and financial expertise, the Company is prudently progressing its projects into profitable gold production with the aim of returning value to shareholders.

Current Operations




KEFI has 100% ownership of the Tulu Kapi licence in western Ethiopia and is at an advanced stage in refining the development plan for the project, aimed at reducing the previously planned capital and operating expenditure. Detailed research has yielded encouraging results and has been summarised in recent Company announcements. 


At the end of 2013, the Ethiopian Government improved the fiscal regime applying to the gold sector, and Tulu Kapi in particular. This included lowering the income tax rate for mining (to 25% from 35%); settling of repayment schedule for inherited VAT liability (over three years rather than up-front); the removal of VAT on future exploration drilling expenditure; lowering royalty on gold mining (to 7% from 8%); accelerating the depreciation of historical and future capital expenditure (over four years); and clarifying the workings of the Government’s 5% free-carried interest so that it does not impede conventional project financing terms. 


Expected milestones for the remainder of 2015 at Tulu Kapi include: 

• Independently verified capex, opex & closure costs 

• Independently verified Ore Reserves 

• Independently updated Definitive Feasibility Study for banking purposes 

• Formalisation of bank syndicate, agreement of final terms for project finance 

• Full development funding and commencement of construction

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia 

In 2009, KEFI formed G&M in Saudi Arabia with local Saudi partner Abdul Rahman Saad Al-Rashid & Sons Company Limited (“ARTAR”), to explore for gold and associated metals in the Arabian Shield. KEFI has a 40% interest in the G&M and is the operating partner. To date, the G&M has conducted preliminary regional reconnaissance and has had five Exploration Licences (“EL”) granted, including Jibal Qutman and the recently granted Hawiah Exploration Licence that contains over 5km2 of outcropping gossans developed on VMS altered and mineralised rocks. 


G&M holds 23 Exploration Licence Applications that cover an area of approximately 1,484km2 . ELs are renewable for up to three years and bestow the exclusive right to explore and to obtain a 30-year exploitation (mining) lease within the area. 


The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has instituted policies to encourage minerals exploration and development, and KEFI Minerals supports this priority by serving as the technical partner within G&M. ARTAR also serves this government policy as the major partner in G&M, which is one of the early movers in the modern resurgence of the Kingdom’s minerals sector.


During 2015 KEFI anticipates submitting a Mining Licence Application for Jibal Qutman in Saudi Arabia.
