10.00am | Investor Presentation: Andy Beckwith, Executive Technical Director, De Grey Mining (ASX:DEG)

De Grey Mining

De Grey Mining Limited (ASX: DEG) is a Western Australia-based mining company engaged in gold exploration and development activities.

The Company’s primary focus is the 100% owned Mallina Gold Project (MGP) in the Pilbara region of WA. Here De Grey has made a large scale, high value, near surface gold discovery at an area called Hemi.

Hemi discovery is an intrusion-hosted form of gold mineralisation which has not been previously encountered in the Pilbara. The high value of the discovery is driven by its size, grade continuity and growth potential.

Hemi is made up of a number of zones including Aquila, Brolga, Crow and Brolga South. De Grey has an aspirational goal of delineating 5Moz at Hemi.

Outside of Hemi, the Company has outlined a 2.2Moz Mineral Resource within the broader 1,200km² tenement area. These regional resources are made more valuable following the discovery at Hemi.

The MGP is located about a 45 minute drive south of Port Hedland in a mining heartland. The area has a number of infrastructure advantages including two major sealed highways, two gas pipelines and a high voltage powerline all within a short distance of Hemi.

A major drilling program is underway at Hemi with the aim of delivering an initial resource in 2021. Drill testing of a number of known, mineralised intrusions in the greater Hemi area is also ongoing, along with targeting along the 150km corridor controlled by De Grey.

9.00am | Keynote Presentation: Mark Pey, Co-Founder and Director, Rush Gold

Rush Gold

There’s always been different set of rules for the privileged. I saw it first-hand working on Wall Street for one of the big guys. The GFC didn’t surprise me one bit, I could see that money was broken. But while the rest of the world suffered, they were bailed out. That’s not cool.

I got out of there, took an 80% pay cut, and moved to Australia in search of a better way. I thought that was crypto. I invested in it, wanting it to succeed. Unfortunately it increased the risks, not lowered them. But it got me thinking ‘what if technology could transform the most trusted asset in history?’

We turned to gold, and turned it back into money!

Owning gold gives you full control of your money. If the economy, the markets, or even we fall over, it’s still yours. But it shouldn’t just be for the privileged.

Providing digital access to real gold makes it accessible, portable and global. Gold and technology are two things that people all over the world value and understand. By putting them together, we’ve added real weight to people’s money and shifted the balance back in their favour.

Mark Pey

Mark’s has dual fields of expertise: financial services and technology. He began his career as a banker on the institutional buy side, primarily with J.P. Morgan, where he raised more than $500M.

4:30pm | Investor Presentation: Jodi Stanton, CEO, Rush Gold

Rush Gold

There’s always been different set of rules for the privileged. I saw it first-hand working on Wall Street for one of the big guys. The GFC didn’t surprise me one bit, I could see that money was broken. But while the rest of the world suffered, they were bailed out. That’s not cool.

I got out of there, took an 80% pay cut, and moved to Australia in search of a better way. I thought that was crypto. I invested in it, wanting it to succeed. Unfortunately it increased the risks, not lowered them. But it got me thinking ‘what if technology could transform the most trusted asset in history?’

We turned to gold, and turned it back into money!

Owning gold gives you full control of your money. If the economy, the markets, or even we fall over, it’s still yours. But it shouldn’t just be for the privileged.

Providing digital access to real gold makes it accessible, portable and global. Gold and technology are two things that people all over the world value and understand. By putting them together, we’ve added real weight to people’s money and shifted the balance back in their favour.

Jodi Stanton

4:45pm Investor Presentation: Tom Sanders, Managing Director, Breaker Resources

Breaker Resources NL (ASX BRB)

Breaker Resources is unlocking the potential of a new 1.7Moz gold district located in the Kalgoorlie region in Western Australia, one of the world’s most prolific gold provinces.

The rapidly growing Lake Roe Gold Project is situated 100km east of Kalgoorlie between two operating gold mines on the southern extension of the 22Moz Laverton Tectonic Zone.

The operational strategy is to develop a large open pit and underground gold mine while concurrently growing the Resource.  Major shareholders include the Electrum Gold Fund (10%), Paulson and Co (10%) and Franklin Templeton (6%).

The project has the attributes of scale, high-grade and outstanding growth potential. Gold at the main Bombora deposit starts 5m from surface  and occurs over a 150m-wide zone in a 3km-long single pit configuration.  Game-changing high-grade lodes discovered in the last year have confirmed that mining will transition to underground.  Bombora is part of a 9km-long gold system.

PFS-level technical and environmental studies to date indicate no impediments to development.  Free-carried lithium interests have the potential to fund the capital expenditure.

Mr Tom Sanders

Tom Sanders is a geologist and founding director of Breaker with over 35 years’ experience in mining, exploration & corporate management and published papers on nickel, gold and regional mineralisation studies.
