Reno, Nevada, March 22, 2021 – OTC PR WIRE – Brookmount Explorations, Inc. (“Brookmount”), a Nevada incorporated company (OTC Pink: BMXI) is pleased to provide this update to shareholders on its financial and operational progress. On Wednesday, the Company filed its amended report and accounts for the 2020 financial year. The Company recorded sales of approximately $11 million, compared with $7 million for the previous year, an increase of 57%. Net income increased to $5.7 million for year, representing an increase of 100% over the result of close to $2.8 million in 2019. Importantly, the Company’s net operating margin (gross profit as a percentage of revenue), was maintained at a high level of 73%, a slight decline over the 75% margin achieved the previous year. The significant increase in both revenue and earnings over the year was primarily the result of continuing exploitation of the high-grade anomaly in the key gold reef running through the property at the Company’s Talawaan operation, with ore grades averaging well over 10grams/tonne and concentrated through a depth of 10 meters. The Company is continuing to work this high-grade anomaly as it carries out a testing program on adjacent areas of the reef to determine its full extent. Sharp increases in the gold price corresponding with the onset of the Covid19 crisis beginning in March also impacted positively on the full year result. After completing an initial 3 processing runs on the Company’s recently constructed 26,000 tonne leach pad at Alason in March, regional border closures and lockdowns in Indonesia resulted in temporary suspension of the activities at Alason and the suspension remained in force for the remainder of the financial year. At present, whilst operations at Talawaan remain largely unaffected by the Covid19 impact, activities at Alason are not projected to recommence until Q2 of the 2021 financial year.
It has been part of the Company’s ongoing strategy that, as it develops its production capacity and revenue from its existing facilities in Indonesia, a global investment platform of high quality, fully licensed properties with qualified reserves, be developed concurrently to further strengthen the Company’s balance sheet and increase its attraction as an investment for multinationals seeking a turnkey high value target to acquire a broad-based gold business. In reflection of this strategy, efforts have been made to identify appropriate, qualified gold assets that the Company can absorb into its operations platform. To this end, the Board is in the process of securing acquisition transactions with the individual owners of two high value, attractive targets in the established gold markets of North America and South Africa. Further details on these transactions will be made available as they progress.
Further details and photos of recent progress will be uploaded to the company’s website shortly and can be accessed on the Company’s Twitter account “@brookmountgold”.
Brookmount currently conducts its gold mining and processing operations in Indonesia through its subsidiary incorporated in Sulawesi Province, Republic of Indonesia, one of Asia most dynamic and rapidly expanding economies with extensive reserves of natural resources and minerals including timber, coal, gold and hydrocarbons.
