The group's unrestricted cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2020, were US$533,000.

During the period the company maintained uninterrupted operations at Cobre despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. It also completed an arbitration process which confirmed a US$21.9mln claim against CV investments. CV Investments has since had a receiver appointed by the US Securities Exchange Commission.

"The first half of 2020 has been globally trying,” Strategic's managing director John Peters said in the results statement. “However, through prudent management, the company has been able to maintain and improve underlying operations and has raised funds, in a difficult environment, to complete payment for the acquisition of the balance of the Redmoor project.”
