Mako Gold - Initial Public Offering (IPO)

Mako Gold – named after the fastest shark in the ocean, is a gold explorer seeking to quickly identify and secure its prey - large, economic gold deposits in West Africa. The company, which is seeking an ASX listing, already has a portfolio of three highly prospective projects in Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso.

The company’s projects total 733.2Km2; all projects have confirmed high-grade gold rock chip samples, as well as extensive artisanal mining sites.

The presence of artisanal mining was a deliberate criterion from management, as artisanal miners usually only process rocks where they can visually see gold, indicating a potential for high-grade deposits.

Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso, who host Mako’s projects are considered supportive of mining. Ten gold mines entering production in Burkina Faso in the past 12 years, whilst Côte d’Ivoire is considered one of West Africa’s best developed countries, with excellent infrastructure including a substantial road system.

Mako is led by an experienced team, including Peter and Ann Ledwidge, who previously selected and secured all the Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso projects for Orbis Gold, leading to gold discoveries of over 2.5 million ounces. The discoveries propelled Orbis gold’s capitalisation, eventuating in its hostile takeover by Canadian miner SEMAFO for around $AU180 Million.

Peter and Ann are joined by other colleagues from Orbis, and together they are looking to set-up a similar West-African gold exploration vehicle. They have already received a firm commitment of a $2 million investment from ASX miner Resolute Mining (RSG.ASX) as part of the IPO.

Mako gold is raising $AU5,000,000-6,000,000 under their IPO. This will leave them an indicative market capitalisation of $AU14,890,020 - $AU15,890,020. Subscribers in the IPO will also be receive a listed option for each two shares they purchase.
