In addition, it was reported that plans and permitting were being advanced for drilling new targets. That drilling activity has recently commenced.


-- On January 14th, 2022 the Company announced that it had signed a Joint Venture ("JV") agreement with Meridian Mining UK Societas ("Meridian") (TSXV: MNO) in relation to the Ariquemes tin project ("Project") in the State of Rondonia, western Brazil. The Project comprises a large collection of granted tenements and applications, totalling almost 3,000km(2) . The licenses were all accumulated and are wholly owned by Meridian's local subsidiary and represent the dominant land position in the Rondônia Tin Province, one of the world's most significant tin regions. Under the JV terms, the Company can earn an equity interest of 75% in the Project by spending US$3m over a four-year period, in two phases: Phase 1 - earn 51% interest by spending US$1 million over a 24-month period; Phase 2 - earn an additional 24% interest by spending US$2 million over a subsequent 24-month period. Following completion of Phase 2, it is intended the two parties will either jointly fund the Project on a pro-rata basis or dilute to a net smelter royalty.


-- On February 15th, 2022 the Company announced that it had signed a JV agreement ("Agreement") with a private Argentinean company DESEADO DORADO S.A.S and its shareholders ("Deseado") in relation to the El Pantano Gold/Silver Project in the Province of Santa Cruz in Argentina ("Gold/Siver Project").The Agreement covers nine licences owned by Deseado that, combined, total 607km2 in the prolific Deseado Massif region of Santa Cruz Province in southern Argentina, roughly 45km from Anglo Gold's Cerro Vanguardia mining camp. The terms of the Agreement allow for the Company to earn 100% equity in the Gold/Silver Project by investing US$3m over five years in two phases: Phase 1 - earn 51% by investing US$1m over an initial 3-year period; Phase 2,- move to 100% ownership by investing an additional US$2m over a subsequent 2-year period and granting Deseado a residual 2% net smelter return royalty on the Gold/Silver Project.

Post the period end, the Company announced that its geological teams mobilised to Santa Cruz Province, Argentina, to commence the Company's first field exploration program at the El Pantano Gold/Silver Project. This field program lasted approximately two weeks and involved extensive mapping and surface sampling (soils and rock chip) programs over the two most attractive prospects. Results are currently awaited.


-- In Uruguay, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Loryser, continues to focus its activities on the implementation of the Creditors Agreement and the sale of its Uruguayan assets. Loryser is also continuing with the reclamation and remediation of the tailings dam which is nearing completion

-- As part of the Creditors Agreement, Orosur issued 10,000,000 Orosur common shares, in December 2019, to a trust for the benefit of Loryser's creditors. On September 10, 2021, the Company announced that it had been informed by the San Gregorio Trust that it had successfully sold its entire shareholding of 10 million common shares in the Company, which amount is being applied to meet Loryser's obligations under the Creditors Agreement.

-- The unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis under the historical cost method except for certain financial assets and liabilities which are accounted for as Assets and Liabilities held for sale (at the lower of book value or fair value) and Profit and Loss from discontinuing operations. This accounting treatment has been applied to the activities in Uruguay and Chile.
