Artemis Resources Limited

("Artemis Resources", the "Company" and together with its subsidiaries, the "Group")

 

Intention to float on AIM

 

Artemis Resources, a Perth-based and ASX-listed mining exploration and development company, is pleased to announce its intention to seek admission of the entire issued and to be issued share capital of the Company to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange ("Admission").

Admission is expected to take place on or around 7 February 2022 under the TIDM 'ARV'.  

Artemis is led by an experienced team focussed on creating shareholder value from its 100% owned projects in Western Australia - the Paterson Central project, adjacent to the Havieron gold and copper discovery near Telfer in the East Pilbara and the Greater Carlow Gold-Copper-Cobalt Project in the West Pilbara.

 

HIGHLIGHTS:

 

High impact, exploration focused gold company with opportunities in Australia; in some of the most exciting new copper-gold provinces globally

· Leverage to exploration success at Paterson Central: The Paterson Central project is 100%  owned by Artemis Resources and is located at the centre of a discovery revival in the remote Paterson Province of Western Australia, which has already attracted significant investment, including:

the 27 Moz Telfer Gold mine;

Rio Tinto's exciting Winu Copper Discovery; and

the growing 4.4 Moz. Newcrest Mining Limited  / Greatland Gold Havieron Gold Copper Discovery.

Artemis' wholly owned landholding provides leverage to exploration success for its shareholders.

· Potential for a large, high grade, gold-copper-cobalt deposit at Carlow Castle with an  identified processing route at Radio Hill

The Carlow Castle gold, copper and cobalt project is a  highly prospective 1,059km2 tenement package located near Karratha, with good access to infrastructure and is c.35km from Artemis' 100% owned Radio Hill Processing Plant. 

There is an existing resource at Carlow Castle and recent exploration campaigns have highlighted the potential for substantially more resource to be discovered in areas surrounding the current mineral resource outline, that could significantly upgrade the size of the overall Greater Carlow mineralised system.

Target of 1.0M oz Au equivalent by end of 2022

 

Fully funded to deliver significant near and medium term progress

· Well-funded work programme for 2022: Assuming completion of the Placing, the Company will have sufficient  capital to implement its drill programme for 2022 which includes:

At Paterson Central:

§ Recommencement of Phase 1 drilling, beginning shortly

§ Follow-up drilling at holes where initial encouraging geology was identified 

At Carlow Castle:  A focus on increasing resource footprint through extending the limits of known  mineralisation, including:

§ extend near surface mineralisation at the copper-gold CrossCut Zone, including drilling untested parallel zones

§ extend recently identified high grade gold shoots at the Western Zone 

§ extend higher grade copper-gold-cobalt mineralisation at depth in the Eastern Zone know to be open to at least ~530m from surface

§ follow-up on the recent Chapman discovery ~ 1km south of Carlow (LFRC07 - [email protected] 3.40% Cu, 1.75 g/t Au)

 

Experienced management team with a clear strategy to grow value and a track record of delivering shareholder return

· Experienced Board and management team: The UK/Australian-based Board brings together a team with the right balance of skills for the Company's current stage of development including extensive experience in the mining industry, demonstrated ability to access the capital markets and a proven track record of delivering shareholder value. The Board has a deep understanding of the UK and Australian capital markets, the Pilbara region and specifically of the Patersons Range whilst also providing a solid understanding of multi-jurisdictional quoted company governance requirements.  

· Demonstrable track record : The Board have a track record of delivering shareholder value.

Alastair Clayton, Executive Director, is a qualified geologist and mining executive with extensive experience in evaluating, optimising and financing large scale mining projects internationally. He was previously a Director of ASX100 company Extract Resources Limited, representing major shareholder AIM listed Kalahari Minerals PLC, both sold for a combined value of A$2.2bn.

Mark Potter, Non-Executive Chairman, has over 15 years' experience in natural resources investments. He is a Director of AIM listed Metal Tiger plc, which sold MOD Resources to Sandfire Resources for A$167m in June 2019 and is Chairman of GreenTech Metals Limited, an ASX listed battery metals explorer, which has seen a share price increase of over 75% since its IPO on 4 January 2022. Mark was a former Director of Anglo Pacific Group, a London listed royalty company, where he completed US$90m of royalty deals.

· Focused strategy: Since April 2020, the Company has undertaken a divestment programme whereby it has disposed of non-core assets which will allow the Board to focus solely on delivering value for Shareholders at the Company's 100%-owned projects at Paterson Central and Greater Carlow, as well as the Radio Hill Plant.

 

Alastair Clayton, Executive Director, of Artemis Resource Limited, said:

"With this AIM listing, the Company is providing an efficient and convenient platform upon which UK-based investors can now own Artemis stock and access its exciting exploration and development projects in Western Australia. As Havieron was discovered by a UK-based company, there is deep understanding of the Paterson Province and the huge potential that the region holds. The Director's believe Artemis provides shareholders unrivalled leverage to further exploration success at Paterson Central with the benefit of an advance resource growth programme at the Greater Carlow Project plus the Radio Hill facility to support the current valuation."

"With rigs at both Paterson Central and Greater Carlow due to re-start soon, we will be generating significant amounts of news and results for the remainder of 2022. The Artemis team look forward to the opportunity before us with some relish and would like to thank our existing and new shareholders for their ongoing support."
