Oar Resources (ASX: OAR) is an ASX listed precious metals explorer and aspiring producer. Oar, through its wholly owned subsidiary Lymex Tenements Pty Ltd holds a number of tenements on the South Australian Eyre Peninsular which are considered highly prospective for halloysite and kaolinite mineralisation, graphite, nickel, zinc and iron ore.
Oar has acquired 100% of the Alpine Resources gold exploration projects in the highly prospective gold province of Nevada, United States, also ranked the third best mining jurisdiction in the world. The three projects are in an area that hosts several multi-million-ounce deposits. Oar has also acquired 100% of Australian Precious Minerals Pty Ltd, holder of the Crown Project in Western Australia. Crown is situated near the Julimar polymetallic discovery.
Oar’s Peruvian subsidiary Ozinca Peru SAC, owns a CIP Gold lixiviation plant, strategically located proximal to thousands of small gold miners in Southern Peru.
ABOUT THE OAR OPERATION
Oar has a development plan based on initially commencing operation of the current CIP lixiviation plant, processing 40 tpd. This will enable the company to quickly push the plant into early production, and generate early and significant cash flow.
Once the initial capital raising is complete, the process of upgrading the existing plant to 40 tpd will commence.
New infrastructure to be built in phase one, includes upgrade to the existing laboratory, supply and installation of an 80 foot, 40 tonne weighbridge and installation of a new and substantial tailings facility.
The opportunity for the Gold Plant to start operations at a production rate of 40 tonnes per day will add great value to Ozinca, and enable cash-flow to commence almost immediately.
Peru is a mineral rich country and is in the top five producers in the world for copper, zinc, lead, silver and gold. The Peruvian economy has grown strongly through the last decade, with a stable exchange rate and low inflation.
The government’s pursuit of sound trade and macroeconomic policies has seen the country enter into numerous free trade agreements and taxation treaties. The Peruvian economy has grown at an average rate of 5.9% over the past decade, with GDP increasing 2.5% and 4% in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Growth is largely due to the mining industry, particularly in silver, zinc and copper, which provides an attractive investment environment. GDP growth for 2019 is expected to be in the vicinity of 3.5%.
