What it does

Metal NRG PLC's (LON:MNRG) main focus is on its Gold Ridge Project in Arizona, acquired in November 2018, which encompasses three previously-producing gold mines known as Gold Prince, Gold Ridge and Dives mines, which are over a 1.8km strike within prospective 5km long vein swarm.

The three mines contain high-grade gold bearing quartz-sulphide veins, with historical production at the Gold Prince mine of 22,000 oz through to 1996.

The explorer is hoping to monetise the waste dumps and pillars left behind by previous operators, so that it can then go on to develop the significant exploration potential in the area.

MetalNRG also has an 8.5% stake in the Kamushanovskoye uranium deposit in Kyrgyzstan, which is currently on hold pending government legislation on uranium mining in the country which it proposed to ban in March.

The company has completed due diligence the potential acquisition of an oil and gas concession in Romania. The terms of the acquisition are under review, following the sharp fall in the oil price in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
