Eurasia Mining plc posted a maiden annual gross profit following the first full season of mining at its West Kytlim platinum and gold alluvial mine in Russia. Total sales soared to GBP 2.57 million in 2018, compared with just GBP 0.18 million a year earlier. Almost all of that came from the 165kg of platinum mined at West Kytlim, although there were also sales of smaller amounts of gold, rhodium, iridium and palladium. Including other costs associated with the writing off of the Kamushanovsky project, the total loss for the year climbed to GBP 3.24 million.

Eurasia is now debt-free as well, having settled all of its outstanding loans during 2018.

Away from the finances, Eurasia achieved some key operational targets in the year, principally surrounding its flagship Monchetundra mine. Monchetundra is bigger than West Kytlim, comprising 1.9mln ounces of palladium-led reserves and resources with platinum, gold, copper and nickel credits to boot.

Monchetundra mining permit awarded

Final approvals for the mining permit were received in November, and a mining contractor is already in place.

Looking ahead, with the mining licence at Monchetundra now under its belt, Eurasia said its plans for the project’s development can now be progressed with its partners. There is also the potential to add further to the reserve and resource base directly adjacent to Monchetundra.
