Project Grand Port, Gold/Copper/Nickel, New Zealand

Grand Port Limited holds 100% of 6 projects over a diversified portfolio of gold, copper, nickel and PGE assets in New Zealand.

On 14 July 2023, the Company announced that it has entered into a binding term sheet for the sale of its non-core gold assets that includes Grand Port to BVI registered company Moosh Moosh Limited (Moosh). As of the date of this report, the completion of the sale to Moosh has not occurred and as such the Company continues to investigate options regarding the divestment of this project. In addition, the Company is currently undertaking the required geological field work to maintain the licenses in good standing and is exploring other opportunities to add value to this valuable exploration asset.
