Believes that there is a very high likelihood of lithium brine continuity into the company’s lithium properties which will be the subject of expedited follow-up exploration.


Scotgold Resources Ltd - Suspends trading in company’s shares pending clarification of its financial position. In July, firm reported a disappointing review in terms of gold production and development of the underground mine at Cononish. Explains the ability of the group to continue as a going concern over the long term would remain dependent on the quantity and grade of ore mined and processed.

Further, says to deliver the draft mine plan would involve require significant capital investment. Actively seeking additional financing and discussions are at an advanced stage which are expected to provide sufficient funding. However, the outcome of the talks is highly uncertain and if it cannot conclude a significant fundraise, it will cast material uncertainty for the company to continue as a going concern.

Adds debt providers have not been paid interest as it has fallen due. Notes one unsecured creditor has demanded full payment of outstanding interest but company does not believe that to do so would be in the best interest of stakeholders. As such, a default is possible if the creditor does not agree to a new payment plan, and a default would mean a material risk the business could be placed into administration in the next few weeks.
