Jaguar's Investment Appeal:
- Low geo-political risk profile - Brazil's stable democratic government, strong mining code and abundant natural resources provide a measure of safety compared to a number of gold operations located elsewhere in Latin America, Africa or other locations.
- Low discovery and conversion costs - identified high-grade brownfield gold deposits to relatively shallow depths reduces Jaguar's mineral acquisition and conversion to reserves costs.
- Proven exploration and growth potential - mines in the district where Jaguar currently operates have proven continuity to depths of up to 2,400 meters. Jaguar's mineral resources are to an average depth of less than 400 meters. In addition, the Gurupi project represents an excellent opportunity for future growth through the development of a major open pit mining operation.
- Outstanding infrastructure - with its operations near Belo Horizonte, a city of four million people, Jaguar is able to source trained personnel, power, equipment, and the permits and licenses it requires to develop and conduct its operations. Moreover, Jaguar's local team of over 1,300 employees live at home in close proximity to schools, medical facilities.
- Experienced and dedicated senior management team with extensive collective experience in mining, finance, and project management.
