About Century

Century Global Commodities Corporation (TSX:CNT) is building shareholder value through existing and entrepreneurial business units that meet continuing and growing demand from China, the largest market in human history.

Iron Ore

With Baowu and Minmetals, both Global Fortune 500 companies, as Chinese strategic partners, Century owns one of the largest iron ore mineral resource bases in the world, across five projects in Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador. Joyce Lake, a direct shipping ore ("DSO") project in Newfoundland and Labrador, is our most advanced project. It has completed feasibility and permitting studies and can be brought to production within approximately 30 months. We are maintaining our properties ready for a return to sustained higher iron ore prices.

Base and Precious Metals Investment

Century is monitoring investment and acquisition opportunities in the non-ferrous metals sector. When the right opportunity presents itself, our strong balance sheet will allow us to invest or acquire cost effective assets during the low base and precious metal price cycle, positioning ourselves for gains when the market improves.

Quality Food Services

Quality food products sourced from advanced countries are in great demand from the quickly-growing middle class in China. The emphasis is on the need for safe, high-quality food products. Century has established a professional marketing team and built a distribution system to serve Hong Kong and eventually throughout China. With a successful local partner, Century is now operating small pilot restaurant stores in Wuhan (with a population of over 10 million) and in Chongqing (with a population of over 30 million).
