Business Summary and Development
The Company owns a 70% equity interest in a company which is developing and operating the the Sawayaerdun Gold Project (the "Gold Project") in Xinjiang. Development of the Gold Project is still on hold and GobiMin will focus on the conversion of the exploration licence into a mining licence. As at March 31, 2017, the Company has submitted two geological reports and received approval for the first report. It is expected that the Company may obtain the approval of the second report in the third or fourth quarter of 2017 and the mining license by the end of 2018. In addition, GobiMin will keep seeking potential investors for the Gold Project.
In addition, GobiMin owns a 40% equity interest in each of the three companies incorporated in China to engage in base metals and precious metal exploration, including nickel, copper, and gold, in Xinjiang.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As at March 31, 2017, the working capital of the Group amounted to approximately $29.9 million (December 31, 2016: $30.9 million), by netting off its current assets of $33.4 million (December 31, 2016: $34.7 million) with current liabilities of $3.5 million (December 31, 2016: $3.8 million).
Taking into account of its financial position, the management of the Group considered that its cash and cash equivalents will be more than sufficient to finance its operation, including the contractual commitments of the Gold Project of approximately $1.7 million.
