July 2019 Operational Update


Argo, a UK-based provider of enterprise-scale crypto mining services, is pleased to provide the following trading update for July 2019:

·     The Company generated 163 Bitcoins (BTC), or £1.36m of cryptoassets, in July based on a BTC price of US$10,122 as of 31 July 2019. The assets were mined at a mining margin of roughly 80%. Argo considers that this continues to demonstrate the Company's efficiency and cements its belief that it is one of the most efficient crypto miners in the market;


·     Installation of new mining equipment continues apace with 1,000 Z11 and 2,269 S17 Antminers currently in production at Argo's Quebec facilities, which were installed and mining ahead of the Company's original schedule;


·     As part of the Company's previously announced expansion, an additional 7,000 state-of-the-art mining machines will be delivered and in production by the end of Q4 2019. The delivery and installation schedule of the new equipment is expected to result in a sequential month-on-month rise in Argo's production capacity over the next five months to approximately 500 Petahash by the end of Q4, representing a 296% increase over current capacity.


Mike Edwards, executive chairman of Argo, said: "We are pleased with the mining results in July as they demonstrate that we can use our existing investment in people and facilities and add new mining hardware with no increase in staffing and no material increases in non-mining costs. This operational gearing is very important as we triple our mining capacity over the next two quarters with no significant increase in non-mining costs."
