During the two-week period, U.S. Gold's management met with over 80 entities including operating mining companies, project financiers (private equity/debt and banking institutions), concentrate marketers, royalty and streaming companies, family office investors, and specialists within the industry.
"These past few weeks have been extremely productive and couldn't have come at a better time as we progress along the development path at our CK Gold Project. We were excited to discuss the advancements we made since these conferences one year ago. Having been granted our Industrial Siting Permit in May of this year and with continued progress of our Mine Operating Permit and Mine Closure Plan permit, we have garnered significant interest from potential project financiers. With the expectation of receiving the Mine Permit in mid-2024, we anticipate releasing our Feasibility Study around that time to secure the necessary project financing. While we are essentially ready to proceed with our feasibility study, we want to ensure that major capital elements are current in the estimate. The Prefeasibility Study, dated December 1, 2021, demonstrated robust economics for the CK Gold Project and we anticipate that the margin will be preserved. Cost pressures due to inflation are expected to be offset by stronger metal prices. The Project's economics, with a very low strip ratio and access to some of our highest-grade mineralization in the first few years, make it extremely amenable to debt capital. There are several project debt alternatives that we are investigating from project debt lenders, potential financing from the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who would be sourcing the necessary plant equipment, sales of early production via off-take agreements and potential State of Wyoming financing. The anticipated goal for financing the Project would be to secure the majority of the needed capital through long-term/low-interest cost of capital debt financing with minimal equity to reduce potential dilution to our current shareholders," said Eric Alexander, Chief Financial Officer of U.S. Gold.
