Auric Mining Increases Revenue Projections and Asset Valuations: 2012 Q1 Gold Demand Value 116% and Average Price 122% of 2011
WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Auric Mining Company (PINKSHEETS: AUMY) announced today that it has revised upward its revenue projections and asset valuations based on the on the World Gold Council’s (WGC) Gold Demand Trends report for Q1 2012.
The WGC’s respected Gold Demands Trends report recently published for Q1 2012, reported a 16% increase year on year to an estimated US$59.7 billion of the Gold Demand Value. The average price of gold for the quarter was US$1,690.57, 22% higher than the average for Q1 2011. Demand for the quarter was underpinned by increased demand in China, continued central bank purchasing and inflows into exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
The WGC report continues to support the Company’s aggressive acquisition and partnership initiative focused on the gold mining sector. The Company had recently announced the completion of a single $60 million asset backed Financial Guarantee permits the Company to expedite the closing of the three (3) properties currently under the investigative analysis stage of its due diligence process and will permit the Company to greatly expand the scope of its recently announced acquisition and partnership initiatives. The Company will give priority to the recommissioning of previously producing gold properties due to their relatively low cap-ex and high production probability and to the acquisition and/or development of environmentally sensitive, cost saving mining technologies.
The Company recently announced it had increased to $60 million the total Financial Guarantees in place and that it had completed the first phase of its due diligence on 7 properties and would be proceeding to the next phase with three (3) of these properties. Further progress on the finalization of these acquisitions, as well as any additional opportunities under review will be reported in due course.
The Company has put in place the required financial and human resources and management to leverage the significant inherent resource value at these near term production scenarios, each with significant undervalued growth potential.
The Company expects to soon announce completion of specific mining property acquisitions and/or partnerships that are currently in progress, as well as details of specific mining technologies under development.
