The Board of Directors of NunaMInerals A/S has today considered and approved the Annual Report for the year 2013 

  • During 2013 the Company has invested 15 mDKK in exploration mainly focusing on gold in the Nanortalik Gold Province in South Greenland  Besides that minor fieldwork has been carried out on the Qeqertaasaq license (REE)
  • The exploration for gold in the Nanortalik Gold Province has resulted in the best gold discoveries in the history of the Company on Amphibolite Ridge. The gold discoveries have afterwards been verified in an independent Technical Report prepared according to international Canadian standards (NI 43.101).
  • Exploration on the Qeqertaasaq REE-niobium project has resulted in a Joint Exploration Agreement with the state-owned Korean mining company KORES.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) was a loss of 5 mDKK compared to a 6.2 mDKK loss in 2012. The result is in accordance with the Company’s previous guidance.
  • The result before tax for the period was a loss of 60.7 mDKK, which is in accordance with guidance in the Q3 2013 Interim Report. In 2012 the result was a loss of 15.5 mDKK. The loss is considerably higher than in 2012 due to higher write-downs the intangible assets in total 50,154 tDKK due to relinquishing licenses in the portfolio. In 2012 the write down was 1,366 tDKK. In addition to this, write-downs on some of the company’s intangible assets to align them with the independent valuation, is 3,472 tDKK against 7,613 tDKK in 2012. These write-downs do not affect the cash flow and follow the accounting policies of the company.
  • Capital Positions at the end of 2013 amounted to 1 mDKK and NunaMinerals is negotiating with investors and other parties regarding capital injection and funding to strengthen the company’s capital for future development of projects. The negotiations are ongoing and as a consequence there is still significant uncertainty about the result, however the Company remains optimistic regarding a positive outcome. The capital resources are very limited and additional funding is necessary for the Company to continue as going concern.
  • In January 2014 the Company obtained a subordinated loan of 3.5 mDKK from Greenland Holding A/S, which has made a commitment to subscribe for an amount equal to the loan including accrued interest in a capital raise. Besides that the Company has obtained a credit facility of 2 mDKK from the Bank.

The Field Programme for 2014 subject to funding is expected to be:

–      Core drilling and surface work at the Vagar gold project to further support the resource potential for gold.

–      Resource drilling at the Qeqertaasaq REE-niobium project funded by KORES

Based on the discoveries and exploration results obtained on the Company’s gold project on the Vagar license during the last two years, the Company has high expectations to the further development of the project. Thorough word is done to obtain the necessary capital to bring the project to the resource phase. The company expects an EBITDA loss in the region of 5-10 mDKK in 2014. Entering new partnerships on the Company’s partner projects can affect expectations.

No events have occurred since the balance sheet date that would materially influence the valuation of the Annual Report
