ECR Minerals PLC (LON:ECR) reported a narrowed loss in its half-year results as it turned its focus squarely on projects in the Australian state of Victoria.

The AIM-listed miner reported a pre-tax loss for the period of £247,945, a reduction on the £433,804 loss in the same period last year, while it ended the period with cash and cash equivalents totalling £701,499, up from £107,508 the same time last year.

The company also said it had increased its net assets to £3.41mln from £2.38mln in the same period last year.

Craig Brown, chief executive of ECR, said that during the period the firm had continued to concentrate its efforts on gold exploration in Victoria, which he said was a relatively overlooked gold exploration destination given its impressive past gold production of around 85mln ounces.

He also noted that the Fosterville mine, located in the same district as ECR’s Bailieston and Moormbool projects, has produced more than one million ounces to date.

Earlier in June, ECR said it had completed a diamond drilling programme across its Bung Bong and Monte Christo projects in the region, which had raised the possibility that there may be further exploration potential at depth, below the base of oxidation.
