Introduction -

The London Stock Exchange (the “LSE”) has long provided an attractive forum for companies with mining operations outside of the United Kingdom to seek and obtain access to foreign capital markets through a public quotation. These quotations are driven by a number of compelling business considerations including:

• access to significant capital pools at a lower effective cost;

• the ability to raise equity capital quickly;

• the creation of acquisition currency in an industry that is consolidating;

• the development of a liquid and efficient market for the quoted company’s shares; and

• the ability of major shareholders to develop an appropriate exit strategy or “liquidity event”.
