Company Overview

Business Description:
South Boulder Mines Limited (STB) is a diversified explorer focused on potash, nickel and gold. STB has a 90% interest in the Colluli Potash Project in Eritrea and is the Company’s current focus.

Strategy Analysis:
The Company is focused on the acquisition, exploration, development and mining of STB's resource projects which include potash as well as multiple gold and nickel prospects. South Boulder Mines provided its December 2011 quarterly activities report, reporting that a detailed engineering scoping study for the Colluli Potash Deposit was completed generating highly favourable technical and financial results. The results firmly confirm Colluli as a ‚ÄėTier 1‚Äô global potash asset with enormous upside potential and a definitive feasibility study (DFS) is well underway for completion in 2013. In addition, an initial JORC compliant Mineral Resource Estimate has been compiled for the Rosie Ni-Cu-PGE sulphide deposit comprising 1.74Mt @ 1.7% Ni (29,800t Ni), 0.4% Cu and 1.9g/t Pt + Pd (>1.0% Ni cut-off). The company is well funded to progress the Colluli DFS and is in the process of finalising a fully underwritten 1 for 5 entitlement issue to raise ~$10.7m.
