Welcome shareholders and potential shareholders to our redesigned and refreshed website. In communicating on the web, people around the world have migrated from using primarily desktop and laptop computers to now being increasingly mobile [device] dominated. Our website redesign has concentrated on both simplifying and enhancing the user experience from this perspective. In addition, we have improved your accessibility to us. This “C-Suite Blog” and our “Ideas and Prospects” sections complement our Twitter and Facebook feeds. We have reduced the density of text on the site in favour of richer graphics and more focussed communication. All the information you seek is very easy to find.
Early in 2015, Premier secured a financing path at Hardrock and bolstered our balance sheet with the agreement to Joint Venture the Trans-Canada Property with Centerra Gold Inc. At that time, we also secured another key asset in Red Lake (Hasaga) to explore in search of the next Hardrock, while also streamlining our overall project portfolio. This came about as a result of our strong relationship with our Red Lake Joint Venture partner, Goldcorp Inc., at the Rahill-Bonanza Property. Together, we identified a win-win opportunity that simply made good sense. Recently, we secured a 40% interest in an advanced development asset at South Arturo, in Nevada, that will become the Carlin Trend’s newest producing mine in 2016, operated by our partner Barrick Gold Corp.
No one can deny that the last few years have been difficult for our industry. We at Premier have demonstrated that there is a path to success, despite these headwinds. That success is a result of many things, not the least of which is the importance of developing and maintaining strong partnerships and relationships with our industry peers and in the communities we seek to do business.A World of Opportunity……for everyone.
