The company is focusing on con- serving cash and controlling mining costs and expenditures but has entered into a provisional agreement to acquire an offce property in Hong Kong. GobiMin believes that in light of low inter- est rates and soaring property prices in Hong Kong, rental prices will keep increasing. It says the additional offce property represents a sound investment and will also enable it to cope with future business expansion. The total consideration of the acquisition is approximately US$2 million. An initial de- posit of about US$64,000 was paid upon signing of the provisional agreement in early July. The formal sales and purchase agreement was to be signed by late July with the payment of a further deposit of US$136,000. The acquisition is expect- ed to be completed by November when the balance of the consideration of about US$1.8 million will become payable. Earlier this year the company received updated Sawayaerdun resource estimates with total measured and indicated resourc- es of 26.84 million tonnes @ 1.79 grams/ tonne gold for 1.545 million ounces, and Block grades of the Zone IV deposit at Sawayaerdun Gold Project. Development of Sawayaerdun on hold total inferred resources are 59.38 million tonnes @ 1.38 grams/tonne for 2.626 mil- lion ounces. Resources contained within the project have been independently estimated by Mining One and are based on data collected by GobiMin as at October 13, 2014. The 2014 resourc- es have been estimated using results from 313 surface diamond drill holes for a total of 97,204 metres plus adits and trenches. The estimates include the Zone IV and Zone 1 areas. In Zone IV there are mea- sured and indicated resources of 26.84 million tonnes @ 1.79 grams/tonne for 1.545 million ounces and inferred resourc- es of 49.71 million tonnes @ 1.39 grams/ tonne for 2.222 million ounces. In Zone 1 there are 9.67 million tonnes in the inferred category @ 1.30 grams/tonne for 404,000 ounces. GobiMin holds an equity interest of 48.02% in Loco Hong Kong Holdings which together with its subsidiaries are engaged in the processing and trading of metals and commodity forward contracts. Loco HK has commenced design of a laboratory with assistance from the Hong Kong Productivity Council to match with a plan of expansion. Loco HK is also study- ing the possibility of building a raw material supply base in China.
