Successful 2017

During the year the company successfully built and developed the San Gregorio West underground mine from internally generated funds, including US$5.9 mln in 2017.

Orosur had US$3.4mln in cash as at the end of May, but in August completed a US$3.2mln equity raise.

“We are very pleased to report a successful FY17 having achieved a number of important corporate milestones whilst simultaneously delivering in line with production and cost targets for the fourth consecutive year,” said chief executive Ignacio Salazar said in a statement.

“The completion of the recent financing announced on August 11th 2017, which was oversubscribed and at a premium to the prevailing market when negotiated, is an important step to support our growth strategy.”
