R&D Rebate from HMRC Delivers 403k


Oriole Resources, the AIM-quoted exploration company focused on West Africa, is pleased to announce that it has received a rebate totalling £403k from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs ('HMRC') in relation to a Research and Development ('R&D') tax relief claim (the 'Claim') in respect of geoscientific advances sought by the Company through its exploration programmes. The Claim is for the year ended 31 December 2021.


The successful Claim demonstrates that the Company qualified for the R&D tax relief by performing research work on potential areas of mineralisation in order to build the geological data necessary to assess the economic feasibility of future mining operations in those areas.



Oriole Resources CFO, Bob Smeeton, said "We made significant progress on our projects in Cameroon during 2021, with three phases of drilling at Bibemi and preliminary exploration work at our district-scale Central Licence Package. With £1.78 million of direct research investment into the projects in 2021, its pleasing to receive an R&D rebate of this quantum within a few months of the year end."
