The Company holds an 80% interest in five mining licenses in the Otavi Mountainlands, an area of Namibia particularly known for its high-grade copper deposits. Within these licenses are three past-producing mines including the Company's flagship property: the past-producing Kombat Mine. The Kombat mine's extensive infrastructure includes an 800m exploration shaft which was opened in 2006, three recently-operational shafts, ramp systems, extensive underground workings, mine buildings, a tailings facility, a mill and concentrator (replacement value est +$100MM) all supported by the Company's local townsite. The Kombat mine originally opened in 1962 and historically produced ~8.7 million tonnes of ore grading 3.1% Cu and is linked to vital existing infrastructure, including power, water, roads, and rail with close proximity to the port of Walvis Bay and to one of only five commercial-grade smelters in Africa located in Tsumeb, located 100 road kilometers away from Kombat.
