Unaudited Interim Results for the six months ended 30 June 2018

 

Xtract Resources Plc (AIM: XTR), the gold producer, exploration and development company with projects in Mozambique, announces an update of operations and projects and its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2018 (“Period”).

  Financial

  ·      Revenue from gold sales of £0.46m (inclusive of Nexus’ share under the Collaboration Agreement) (H1 17: £Nil)

·      Net loss of £0.41m (H1 17: £0.64m)

·      Operating expenses £0.83m (H1 17: £0.42m)

·      Cash of £1.01m (FY 17: £1.66m)

·      Net assets of £11.08m (FY 17: £11.48m)

 

Operational & Corporate Highlights

  ·      Total alluvial mining contractor gold production of 90.3kgs (equivalent to 2,903 ounces) (H1 17: Nil)

·      Total of 22.47Kg (equivalent to 723 ounces) attributable to Explorator (inclusive of Nexus’ share under the Collaboration Agreement) (H1 17: Nil)

·      Manica Hard Rock collaboration agreement concluded with Omnia Mining Ltd

·      Appointment of new company broker

 

  Colin Bird, Executive Chairman commented: The Period under review was focused entirely on the Manica concession and surrounding opportunities.

 The alluvial mining operations remained cash positive and progress continues to be made with monthly performance.  

 The alluvials, like the hard rock mineralisation, have shown themselves to be extremely variable in their gold content and physical presentation. Moz Gold had problems recovering the fine gold that was evident in the western part of the concession whilst the terraces proved to have too much overburden for the gold yields obtained. However, Sino Minerals on the Eastern side continued to get satisfactory results throughout the period although they experienced similar variability but more in the amount of overburden than the fineness of the gold. The varying results necessitated that the Company revisit the apportionment of the contract areas ensuring that contractors had the necessary equipment, both processing and mining to operate in the areas to which they are assigned. The Company is currently discussing with various contractors new contracts or revised contracts for the newly apportioned concessions. The discussions are based around a dividing line between river alluvials and terrace alluvials and our discussions are directed towards concluding agreements in the near future.

  The contract with Moz Gold was terminated during the Period and following the Period end the Company is now in the process of taking possession of Moz Gold’s plant over which it has security. We are looking at a number of opportunities to employ this processing plant within the concession or elsewhere. Whilst the processing plant is unsuitable for the recovery of fine gold at Manica, it is a substantial plant which will undoubtably return value to the Company or any acquirer of the plant.

 Overall in the Period the alluvial operations were cash positive and total alluvial production amounted to 1,200 oz in the first quarter and 1,703 oz in the second quarter.

 Our hard rock plans for area consolidation have proceeded favorably and we have undertaken significant reef exposure exploration in a number of areas including the use of excavators to establish continuity of existing reefs or newly discovered reefs. This will be followed by drilling for depth where appropriate.

 Post Period end, we announced that we had identified twelve potential mining sites within 15 kilometers radius of the Omnia plant. We identified within the Omnia concession a new quartz vein named the Andre zone which is showing good potential. Adjacent to this zone, we have identified a number of adits at various levels that, once made safe and entered, will give us insight as to the vertical continuity of the vein. The channel sampling of the vein was very encouraging with the best trench result being 0.5m at 20.8 g/t of gold. Our collaboration agreement with Omnia has led to an evaluation of the current plant and we are in discussion with various engineering contractors to assess the work and cost required to upgrade the plant to treat most of the ore types within the Manica area. We are also developing conceptual open pit mine plans to work known surface deposits within the collaboration area.

 The gold price over the period under review has declined somewhat, which we consider is a function of reduced geopolitical tension and increased financial and political stability. The work to consolidate the Manica area is accelerating and the possibility of including Fair Bride in the agreement is being considered. We expect that the fourth quarter of 2018 we will prepare a three-year operation plan together with costings.

 As always, the Company is active in seeking out other opportunities which may diversify commodity risk, and at time when we are debt free which will help to add further potential for significant shareholder value growth.

Xtract Resources PLC

Notes to the interim financial information

For the six month period ended 30 June 2018

 

1.       General information

Xtract Resources PLC (“Xtract”) is a company incorporated in England and Wales under the Companies Act 2006. The Company’s registered address is 1st Floor, 7/8 Kendrick Mews, London, SW7 3HG.  The Company’s ordinary shares are traded on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange. The Company invests and engages in the management, financing and development of early stage resource assets.

 

2.       Accounting policies

 

Basis of preparation

 

Xtract prepares its annual financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union (EU).

 

The consolidated interim financial information for the period ended 30 June 2018 presented herein has been neither audited nor reviewed. The information for the period ended 31 December 2017 does not constitute statutory accounts as defined in section 434 of the Companies Act 2006 but has been derived from those accounts. The auditor’s report on those accounts was not qualified and did not contain statements under section 498 (2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006 but did draw attention by way of emphasis to the material uncertainty around the going concern assumption. As permitted, the Group has chosen not to adopt IAS 34 ‘Interim Financial Reporting’.

 

The interim financial information is presented in pound sterling and all values are rounded to the nearest thousand pounds (£’000) unless otherwise stated.

 

The interim consolidated financial information of the Group for the six months ended 30 June 2018 were authorised for issue in accordance with a resolution and were authorised for issue by the Directors on 27 September 2018.

 

Going concern

 

As at 30 June 2018, the Group held cash balances of £1,012k. As is common with junior mining companies, the Company in the past has raised finance from shareholders for its activities, in discrete tranches to finance its activities for limited periods only and further funding would be required from time to time to finance those activities.

 An operating loss has been reported for the Group, however, as at the date of the release of the consolidated financial information, the Group’s assets have been and continue to  generate revenues.

 

The Company currently has an agreement in place with Sino Minerals Investment Company Limited  for the contract alluvial mining of the Eastern Half of the Manica concession and is currently in discussions with new contractors, regarding new contracts, for a newly apportioned concession. This  should result in positive cash flows which would assist in working capital requirements and based on the above, the Directors anticipate net operating cash inflows at the operating level during the next the next twelve months from the date of the release of the consolidated financial information.

 

The Directors have assessed the working capital requirements for the forthcoming twelve months and have undertaken the following assessment.

 

 

Upon reviewing those cash flow projections for the forthcoming twelve months, the directors consider that in the event that the Group is unable to achieve the forecasted revenue, the Company may require additional financial resources in the twelve-month period from the date of authorising the consolidated information to enable the Company to fund its current operations and to meet its commitments.  

 

Nevertheless, after making enquiries and considering the risks and uncertainties as described in the Company’s Annual Report, the directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company will continue generating cash flows from its agreements entered into with the alluvial mining contractors and at the same time has adequate ability to raise finance. The Directors therefore continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing the consolidated financial information and therefore the consolidated financial information does not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of assets and liabilities that may be necessary if the going concern basis of preparation of the consolidated financial information is not appropriate.

 

On this basis the Board believes that it is appropriate to prepare the consolidated financial information on the going concern basis.

 

Changes in accounting policy

The accounting policies applied are consistent with those adopted and disclosed in the Group Consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017, except for the changes arising from the adoption of new accounting pronouncements detailed below.

 

There are no amendments or interpretations to accounting standards that would have a material impact on the financial statements.

 

3.       Business segments

 

Segmental information

During the period the Group operated in gold & precious metal mining which had a separate operational segment from July 2017 after the Company concluded its second Manica Alluvial Mining Contract. From March 2016, the Group included an additional segment relating to the Manica hard rock Gold Project (Mine Development) and maintained the investment & other segment. These divisions are the basis on which the Group reports its primary segment information to its Executive Chairman, who is the Chief Operating Decision maker of the Group. The Executive Chairman and the Chief Operating Officer are responsible for allocating resources to the segments and assessing their performance.

 

Principal activities are as follows:

 

·      Operating alluvial gold mining segment – Mozambique

·      Mine Development – Mozambique

Convertible Loan Agreement – Moz Gold Limitada

 

On 15 December 2017, the Company agreed to loan a total of US$700K to Moz Gold to be drawn down in two separate tranches, the first tranche of US$400K and second tranche of US$300K, with an interest rate of 30% per annum.

Moz Gold agreed to provide the Company with security over the processing plant and the use of proceeds will be solely for working capital purposes for the alluvial operations.

During June 2018, Moz Gold halted production on the Western Half of the Manica concession. The Company has security over Moz Gold’s processing plant and no decision has yet been taken by Company whether to utilise the plant for its own account or, alternatively make it available to new contractors who would be responsible for all necessary modifications.

As at 30 June 2018, the total amount outstanding including interest amounts to US$ 441K (£312K) and (US$214K (£158K) – 31 December 2017).
