Company Overview

Business Description:
Sirius Resources NL (SIR) is an exploration company focusing on discovering gold, nickels and base metals located predominantly in Western Australia. SIR currently focuses on its nickel-copper Nova-Bollinger Project.

Strategy Analysis:
Gold production is sourced from the company's 100% owned Norseman mines. Davyhurst is being placed on care and maintenance due to reserve exhaustion. Management will continue its aggressive exploration push to expand Norseman reserves and test any promising open pittable targets. The style of Norseman's mineralisation means the mine is unlikely to ever have a long reserve life ahead of it. Management has announced its intention to sell the Hannan South/Binduli operations but to date has been unsuccessful. Funds will be used to fast track expansion of gold production from Norseman through development of the Patrick's and Norseman reefs and through regional exploration.
