StrategyAs demonstrated by its sale of the Temoris option in 2009, Garibaldi Resources' strategy is to acquire exceptional, undervalued high-grade prospects in Mexico and British Columbia and move them forward in a systematic, cost-effective manner that builds shareholder value. It only takes "1" important discovery to drive a junior exploration company's market cap to astounding levels. Garibaldi has given its shareholders multiple opportunities for incredible leverage with four key properties in Mexico and five active projects in B.C. featuring gold, silver, copper and nickel.
During the spring of this year, Garibaldi management made a strategic decision to dramatically increase its land position in a key part of northwest B.C.'s Golden Triangle by expanding its King Property and acquiring the very prospective E&L and Palm Springs projects. Eskay Creek, Snip, KSM and Brucejack have all been world class discoveries in this incredible district over the last three decades, and Garibaldi believes it can contribute significantly to exciting new chapters in this region's evolving story over the coming months and years. With 170 sq. km in this "core" area, including the E&L Ni-Cu-Au deposit that holds great potential for expansion into a very large massive sulphide system, Garibaldi looks forward to capitalizing on this unique opportunity for its shareholders.
Meanwhile, from Temoris to more recently at Rodadero, Garibaldi has used cutting edge technology in Mexico to make new discoveries, build financial strength and accurately pinpoint the most prospective targets for potential new deposits in some of the country's most robust gold, silver and copper producing areas.
Mexico's vast mineral wealth and long history of resource extraction belies the fact that modern exploration methods are in their infancy in this rich and underexplored jurisdiction.
Thanks in part to the millions of dollars generated by the sale of the Temoris option, Garibaldi has been successful at keeping share dilution to a minimum by carrying out only two major financings (20 cents and 16 cents, both flow-through) since 2009.
With just 71 million shares outstanding, a first-rate portfolio of properties and the "right" people to explore and develop them, Garibaldi is extremely well-positioned to be a market leader in the year ahead.
