In the recent quarterly, ARV’s non-executive chairman Sheik Maktoum said: “The June quarter was a defining period in which we reassessed exploration and development work across our key projects while successfully restructuring our debt terms, placing Artemis in a better position financially.

“During the period, we released the Ni-Cu Resource at Ruth Well, Novo Resources finalised a Mineralisation Report on Purdy’s Reward, Radio Hill is now fully approved for operation, and we have announced further plans for advancing our Au-Cu-Co project at Carlow Castle.

“We’ve seen increased activity in the Paterson Range by other companies and based on our own exploration at the Armada tenement we now have eleven drill-targets based on our aeromagnetic, gravity and seismic surveys.

“We’ve also realigned our corporate goals and constraints by raising $2.7m through a Share Purchase Plan subsequent to quarter end, and now with a major land acquisition in the Paterson Range through Rincon Resources, we are well placed for a successful 2019 and beyond.”
