Big Picture – A Deep Dive Examination of Goldplat plc

Goldplat plc Snapshot

Goldplat’s primary strategy is to build upon the successes of its profitable core gold recovery operations in South Africa and Ghana where the Company sees the potential for continued strong revenue growth and stable margins. Goldplat will continue to optimise its South African gold recovery operation and build its Ghanaian gold recovery operation to replicate the successful and mature South African operation, which sources by-products primarily from blue chip mining companies.
