Predictive Discovery
(Aurora 43.9% )
Bongou Mineral Resource
Predictive note the following key features of the Bongou deposit: P1,2
§
“it is intrinsically high grade, because:
There is very little difference in contained ounces between the 0.4g/t Au cut-off and the 0.8g/t Au cut-off grades, and
Over 70% of the resource ounces are retained when the cut-off grade is raised from 0.8g/t Au to 2.0g/t Au, with a high average grade of
3.75g/t Au.
The bulk of the estimated resources are contained in one mineralised granite body, which is thick in the near surface and appears to taper to the
east The deposit is not closed off to the south-west or at depth.
§
§
§
§
The shape of the mineralisation lends itself to a simple open pit mining operation, with high-grade mineralisation in the near surface position,
which would suggest the possibility of early strong cash flow in a future mining operation. Gold grades are associated with pyrite-bearing altered
granite, which is very visibly distinct from the adjacent low grade gabbro, suggesting that dilution can be minimised quite easily by standard
grade control practice.
§
Previously reported metallurgical work on a composite sample of primary gold mineralisation from Bongou gave a 94% gold recovery from a
standard 75 micron grind, 72 hour cyanidation test suggesting that gold recoveries from mining this deposit would be very high.”

Asset Portfolio Focussed in South Korea
LITHIUM PROSPECTS
•
Seven tenement applications filed over the Dongsugok, Tonggo and
Ubeong lithium prospects
•
53 tenement applications filed over the Daehyeon, Deokgu, Goseon
North and Goseon South, Naedeok and Uguchi lithium Prospects.
•
Exploration program commenced in Q2 2016
•
Dongsugok prospect lies 700m along strike to the east of the Boam
Lithium Mine
•
Lithium at the neighbouring Boam Lithium Mine occurs as brecciated
quartz and lepidolite mica and quartz lepidolite veins associated
with pegmatite and aplite dykes
GRAPHITE PROSPECTS
•
Twelve tenement applications over the Daewon, Deokseung, Eunha,
Yongwon, Yongwon West and Wolmyeong graphite prospects
•
Exploration program commenced in Q2 2016
•
Wolmyeon has previous drilling results
•
Historical mines & prospects – South Korea formerly a major world
producer
OSU PORPHYRY COPPER-GOLD TARGET
•
Historical Baegun and Pal Gong Gold-Silver & Base Metal mines
•

Lithium Projects
•
Review of historic country wide Korea Institute of Geoscience and
Mineral Resources (KIGAM) stream sediment sampling data has
highlighted an area to the south of the Sangdong tungsten mine
where an aerially extensive lithium anomaly is centred.
•
This area has the highest concentration of lithium anomalism
reported from the country wide geochemical survey.
•
KIGAM geological mapping over the area has identified numerous
pegmatitic dyke occurrences. Elevated lithium values are interpreted
to be a response to pegmatitic dykes.

Wolmyeong Graphite Project

•
•
•
•
Tenement applications cover the historical
Wolmyeong graphite mine
Wolmyeong was the largest graphite mine in South
Korea before it closed in 1987
Wolmyeong deposit predominantly contains high
grade, microcrystalline or “amorphous” graphite
Sampling by KMPC (1979) included grades from 7983% total graphitic carbon (TGC)
The grade of the Wolmyeong deposit is significantly
higher than that of South Korean flake graphite
deposits
Historical underground development extended over
300 to 750m of strike across the 3 graphitic
horizons identified thus far
Historical mining was highly selective and focussed
on the easily accessible areas of the deposit, above
260m altitude (water level). Therefore, significant
down dip potential still remains at Wolmyeong
22
Investment Highlights
• Diversified Portfolio of resource investments but with strong
focus on gold, graphite and lithium
• Trading at a substantial discount to cash backing and NTA
backing
• Highly leveraged to the exploration success of its
investments in Golden Rim, Predictive Discovery and
Peninsula Mines
