THE YEAR IN SUMMARY

 

Ivrea Nickel Project

 

·          Nyota acquired 70% of the Ivrea Nickel Project in northwest Italy in February 2015.

·          The Alpe di Laghetto survey block comprises a 6km long anomaly that encompasses the Alpe de Laghetto and La Balma historic mine workings.

·          Ivrea Nickel Project continues to be on hold and maintenance given the subdued capital markets environment for green fields exploration projects.

 

Tulu Kapi Gold Project

·          Remaining shares in KEFI Minerals Limited acquired as a result of the disposal of Nyota's interest in the Talu Kapi Gold Project sold in July 2016 for GBP 28,150.

Northern Blocks

·          Brantham and Towchester, the licensee companies for Nyota's Ethiopian investments, were de-registered in August 2016.

Corporate

·          GBP 300,000 was raised by placement of 545,454,545 ordinary shares to various institutional investor clients of Smaller Company Capital Limited at a price of 0.055 pence on or around 16 July 2015. 27,272,727 options exercisable at GBP 0.002 before 1 March 2017 were issued to Smaller Company Capital Limited as a capital raising fee.

·          GBP 187,500 (before expenses) was raised by placement of 375,000,000 ordinary shares to various institutional investor clients of Smaller Company Capital Limited at a price of 0.05 pence on or around 21 January 2016.

·          As at 30 June 2016 the number of ordinary shares on issue with voting rights is 1,877,603,672.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1              Summary of significant accounting policies

                                                                                                                     

The principal accounting policies adopted in the preparation of these consolidated financial statements are set out below.  These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless otherwise stated. The financial statements are for the consolidated entity consisting of Nyota Minerals Limited and its subsidiaries.

 

(a)           Basis of preparation of financial report

 

This general purpose financial report has been prepared in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards and interpretations issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board and the Corporations Act 2001. Nyota Minerals Limited is a for-profit entity for the purposes of preparing the financial statements.

 

The financial report was authorised for issue on 29 September 2016.

 

Compliance with IFRS

The consolidated financial statements of the Nyota Minerals Limited group also comply with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).

 

Historical cost convention

These financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention, as modified by the revaluation of available-for-sale financial assets. 

 

Critical accounting estimates

The preparation of financial statements requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its judgment in the process of applying the Group's accounting policies. The areas involving a higher degree of judgment or complexity, or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the financial statements are disclosed in note 3.

 

Going concern

The Group incurred a loss from continuing operations for the year of $1,018,512 (2015- $3,041,185) and operating cash outflows of $978,906 (2015- $1,725,350).

 

The Directors have prepared cash projections based on the current corporate overheads and the proposed capital expenditure for its projects in the 2017 financial year. The Group will be unable to meet its proposed minimum exploration work programme and pursue new project opportunities over the next 12 months without the Group being successful in completing a capital raising, asset sale, and/or joint venture agreement.

 

In the future there can be no guarantee that sufficient funds can be raised or that the funds raised will meet the Group's requirements. Failure to raise the required funds may result in the Group failing to meet its proposed exploration work programme and working capital requirements. The Directors will continue to mitigate the Group's going concern risk by minimising the Group's corporate overheads and project exploration where appropriate/possible.

 

These conditions indicate a continued material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt over the Group's ability to continue as a going concern and therefore, whether it will realise its assets and settle its liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business and at the amounts stated in the financial statements. However, the Directors believe that the Group will be successful in the above matters and accordingly have prepared the financial statements on a going concern basis. The financial statements do not include the adjustments that would result if the Group was unable to continue as a going concern. 

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1    Summary of significant accounting policies (cont)

 

(b)           Principles of consolidation

 

Subsidiaries

The consolidated financial statements incorporate the assets and liabilities of all subsidiaries of Nyota Minerals Limited (''Company'' or ''parent entity'') as at 30 June 2016 and the results of all subsidiaries for the year then ended. Nyota Minerals Limited and its subsidiaries together are referred to in this financial report as the Group or the consolidated entity.

 

Subsidiaries are all those entities (including special purpose entities) over which the Group has the power to govern the financial and operating policies, generally accompanying a shareholding of more than one‑half of the voting rights. The existence and effect of potential voting rights that are currently exercisable or convertible are considered when assessing whether the Group controls another entity.

 

Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date on which control is transferred to the Group. They are de‑consolidated from the date that control ceases.

 

The acquisition method of accounting is used to account for the acquisition of subsidiaries by the Group.

 

Intercompany transactions, balances and unrealised gains on transactions between Group companies are eliminated. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of the impairment of the asset transferred. Accounting policies of subsidiaries have been changed where necessary to ensure consistency with the policies adopted by the Group.

 

Changes in ownership interests

When the Group ceases to have control, joint control or significant influence, any retained interest in the entity is re-measured to its fair value with the change in carrying amount recognised in profit or loss. This fair value becomes the initial carrying amount for the purposes of subsequently accounting for the retained interest as an associate, joint venture or financial asset. In addition, any amounts previously recognised in other comprehensive income in respect of that entity are accounted for as if the group had directly disposed of the related assets or liabilities. This may mean that amounts previously recognised in other comprehensive income are reclassified to profit or loss.

 

(c)            Segment reporting

 

Operating segments are reported in a manner that is consistent with the internal reporting provided to the chief operating decision maker.  The chief operating decision maker has been identified as the full board of directors. 



NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1              Summary of significant accounting policies (cont)

 

(d)           Foreign currency translation

 

(i)            Functional and presentation currency

Items included in the financial statements of each of the Group's entities are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates ('the functional currency'). The consolidated financial statements are presented in Australian dollars, which is Nyota Minerals Limited's functional and presentation currency.

 

(ii)           Transactions and balances

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions. Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation at year‑end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in profit and loss.

 

(iii)          Group companies

The results and financial position of all the Group entities (none of which has the currency of a hyperinflationary economy) that have a functional currency different from the presentation currency are translated into the presentation currency as follows:

 

·              assets and liabilities for each statement of financial position presented are translated at the closing rate at the date of that statement;

·              income and expenses for each statement of comprehensive income are translated at average exchange rates (unless this is not a reasonable approximation of the cumulative effect of the rates prevailing on the transaction dates, in which case income and expenses are translated at the dates of the transactions); and

·              all resulting exchange differences are recognised as other comprehensive income.

 

On consolidation, exchange differences arising from the translation of any net investment in foreign entities, and of borrowings and other currency instruments designated as hedges of such investments, are taken to other comprehensive income. When a foreign operation is sold or any borrowings forming part of the net investment are repaid, a proportionate share of such exchange differences are recognised in profit and loss as part of the gain or loss on sale, where applicable.

 

Goodwill and fair value adjustments arising on the acquisition of a foreign entity are treated as assets and liabilities of the foreign entity and translated at the closing rate.

 

(e)           Revenue recognition

 

Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable. Revenue is recognised for the major business activities when the following specific recognition criteria are met:

 

Interest income

Interest income is recognised on a time proportionate basis using the effective interest rate method.



NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1              Summary of significant accounting policies (cont)

 

(f)            Income tax

 

The income tax expense or benefit for the period is the tax payable on the current period's taxable income based on the national income tax rate for each jurisdiction adjusted by changes in deferred tax assets and liabilities attributable to temporary differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the financial statements and to unused tax losses.

 

Deferred income tax is provided in full, using the liability method, on temporary differences arising between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the consolidated financial statements. However, the deferred income tax is not accounted for if it arises from initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction other than a business combination that at the time of the transaction affects neither accounting nor taxable profit or loss. Deferred income tax is determined using tax rates (and laws) that have been enacted or substantially enacted by the balance sheet date and are expected to apply when the related deferred income tax asset is realised or the deferred income tax liability is settled.

 

Deferred tax assets are recognised for deductible temporary differences and unused tax losses only if it is probable that future taxable amounts will be available to utilise those temporary differences and losses.

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset when there is a legally enforceable right to offset current tax assets and liabilities and when the deferred tax balances relate to the same taxation authority. Current tax assets and tax liabilities are offset where the entity has a legally enforceable right to offset and intends either to settle on a net basis, or to realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously.

 

Current and deferred tax balances attributable to amounts recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity are also recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity respectively.

 

The Australian tax consolidation regime does not apply to the company because there are no Australian incorporated subsidiaries.

 

(g)           Impairment of assets

 

Goodwill and intangible assets that have an indefinite useful life are not subject to amortisation and are tested annually for impairment or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that they might be impaired. Other assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. An impairment loss is recognised for the amount by which the asset's carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is the higher of an asset's fair value less costs to sell and value in use. For the purposes of assessing impairment, assets are grouped at the lowest levels for which there are separately identifiable cash inflows which are largely independent of the cash inflows from other assets or groups of assets (cash-generating units). Non-financial assets other than goodwill that suffered impairment are reviewed for possible reversal of the impairment at each reporting date.

 

(h)           Cash and cash equivalents

 

For cash flow statement and balance sheet presentation purposes, cash and cash equivalents includes cash on hand, deposits held at call with financial institutions, other short-term, highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.



NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1              Summary of significant accounting policies (cont)

 

(i)            Investments and other financial assets

 

Classification

The Group classifies its investments in the following categories: loans and receivables and available‑for‑sale financial assets. The classification depends on the purpose for which the investments were acquired. Management determines the classification of its investments at initial recognition and re‑evaluates this designation at each reporting date.

 

(i)            Loans and receivables

Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. They arise when the Group provides money, goods or services directly to a debtor with no intention of selling the receivable. They are included in current assets, except for those with maturities greater than 12 months after the balance sheet date which are classified as non‑current assets. Loans and receivables are included in receivables in the balance sheet.

 

(ii)           Available‑for‑sale financial assets

Available‑for‑sale financial assets, comprising principally marketable equity securities, are non‑derivatives that are either designated in this category or not classified in any of the other categories. They are included in non‑current assets unless management intends to dispose of the investment within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

 

Recognition and derecognition

Purchases and sales of investments are recognised on trade‑date ‑ the date on which the Group commits to purchase or sell the asset. Investments are initially recognised at fair value plus transaction costs for all financial assets not carried at fair value through profit or loss. Financial assets are derecognised when the rights to receive cash flows from the financial assets have expired or have been transferred and the Group has transferred substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership.

 

Subsequent measurement

Available‑for‑sale financial assets are subsequently carried at fair value, or cost where fair value is unable to be reliably measured. Loans and receivables are carried at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Unrealised gains and losses arising from changes in the fair value of non-monetary securities classified as available‑for‑sale are recognised in other comprehensive income. When securities classified as available‑for‑sale are sold or impaired, the accumulated fair value adjustments are included in the profit and loss as gains and losses from investment securities.

 

Fair value

The fair values of quoted investments are based on current bid prices. If the market for a financial asset is not active (and for unlisted securities), the Group establishes fair value by using valuation techniques. These include reference to the fair values of recent arm's length transactions, involving the same instruments or other instruments that are substantially the same, discounted cash flow analysis, and option pricing models refined to reflect the issuer's specific circumstances.



NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1              Summary of significant accounting policies (cont)

 

(i)            Investments and other financial assets (cont)

 

Impairment

The Group assesses at each balance date whether there is objective evidence that a financial asset or group of financial assets is impaired. In the case of equity securities classified as available-for-sale, a significant or prolonged decline in the fair value of a security below its cost is considered in determining whether the security is impaired. If any such evidence exists for available‑for‑sale financial assets, the cumulative loss ‑ measured as the difference between the acquisition cost and the current fair value, less any impairment loss on that financial asset previously recognised in profit and loss ‑ is removed from equity and recognised in profit and loss. Impairment losses recognised as profit or loss on equity instruments classified as available-for-sale are not reversed through the profit or loss.

 

(j)            Exploration and evaluation expenditure

 

Exploration costs are expensed as incurred. Acquisition costs are accumulated in respect of each separate area of interest. Acquisition costs are carried forward where right of tenure of the area of interest is current and they are expected to be recouped through the sale or successful development and exploitation of the area of interest or, where exploration and evaluation activities in the area of interest have not yet reached a stage that permits reasonable assessment of the existence of economically recoverable reserves. When an area of interest is abandoned or the Directors decide that it is not commercial, any accumulated acquisition costs in respect of that area are written off in the financial year. Amortisation is not charged on acquisition costs carried forward in respect of areas of interest in the development phase until production commences.

 

Exploration and evaluation assets are assessed for impairment when facts and circumstances suggest that the carrying amount of an exploration and evaluation asset may exceed its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount of the exploration and evaluation asset (for the cash generating unit(s) to which it has been allocated being no larger than the relevant area of interest) is estimated to determine the extent of the impairment loss (if any). Where an impairment loss subsequently reverses, the carrying amount of the asset is increased to the revised estimate of its recoverable amount, but only to the extent that the increased carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined had no impairment loss been recognised for the asset in previous years.

 

Where a decision has been made to proceed with development in respect of a particular area of interest, the relevant exploration and evaluation asset is tested for impairment and the balance is then reclassified to development.

 

(k)           Trade and other payables

 

These amounts represent liabilities for goods and services provided to the Group prior to the end of financial year which are unpaid. The amounts are unsecured and are usually paid within 30 days of recognition. Trade and other payables are presented as current liabilities unless payment is not due within 12 months from the reporting date. They are recognised initially at their fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method.

 

(l)           Provisions

 

Provisions are recognised when the consolidated entity has a legal or constructive obligation to make a future sacrifice of economic benefits to other entities as a result of past transactions or other past events, it is probable that a future sacrifice of economic benefits will be required and a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(m)          Employee benefits

 

Termination benefits

Termination benefits are payable when employment is terminated by the group before the normal retirement date, or when an employee accepts voluntary redundancy in exchange for these benefits. The group recognises termination benefits at the earlier of the following dates: (a) when the group can no longer withdraw the offer of those benefits; and (b) when the entity recognises costs for a restructuring that is within the scope of AASB 137 and involves the payment of terminations benefits. In the case of an offer made to encourage voluntary redundancy, the termination benefits are measured based on the number of employees expected to accept the offer. Benefits falling due more than 12 months after the end of the reporting period are discounted to present value.

 

Short-term obligations

Liabilities for wages and salaries, including non-monetary benefits and accumulating sick leave that are expected to be settled wholly within 12 months after the end of the period in which the employees render the related service are recognised in respect of employees' services up to the end of the reporting period and are measured at the amounts expected to be paid when the liabilities are settled. The liability for accumulating sick leave is recognised in the provision for employee benefits. All other short-term employee benefit obligations are presented as payables.

 

Other long-term employee benefit obligations

The liabilities for long service leave and annual leave are not expected to be settled wholly within 12 months after the end of the period in which the employees render the related service. They are therefore recognised in the provision for employee benefits and measured as the present value of expected future payments to be made in respect of services provided by employees up to the end of the reporting period using the projected unit credit method.

 

Share‑based payments

Share‑based compensation benefits are provided to employees via the Nyota Minerals Limited Share and Option Plan. Information on these schemes is set out in note 20.

 

The fair value of options granted to directors/key management personnel are recognised as an employee benefit expense with a corresponding increase in equity. The fair value is measured at grant date and recognised over the period during which the employees become unconditionally entitled to the options.

 

The fair value at grant date is determined using a Black‑Scholes option pricing model that takes into account the issue/exercise price, the term of the option, the impact of dilution, the non‑tradeable nature of the share/option, the share price at grant date and expected price volatility of the underlying share, the expected dividend yield and the risk‑free interest rate for the term of the option.

 

The fair value of the options granted is adjusted to reflect market vesting conditions, but excludes the impact of any non‑market vesting conditions. Non‑market vesting conditions are included in assumptions regarding the employee loan recoverability and about the number of options that are expected to vest. At each balance sheet date, the entity revises its estimate of the number of options that are expected to become exercisable. The employee benefit expense recognised each period takes into account the most recent estimate. The impact of the revision to original estimates, if any, is recognised in profit and loss with a corresponding adjustment to equity.

(n)           Contributed equity

 

Ordinary shares are classified as equity.

 

Incremental costs directly attributable to the issue of new shares or options are shown in equity as a deduction, net of tax, from the proceeds. Incremental costs directly attributable to the issue of new shares or options for the acquisition of a business are included in the cost of the acquisition as part of the purchase consideration.

 

(o)           Earnings per share

 

(i)            Basic earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the profit or loss attributable to equity holders of the Company, excluding any costs of servicing equity other than ordinary shares, by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the year.

 

(ii)           Diluted earnings per share

Diluted earnings per share adjusts the figures used in the determination of basic earnings per share to take into account the after income tax effect of interest and other financing costs associated with dilutive potential ordinary shares and the weighted average number of shares assumed to have been issued for no consideration in relation to dilutive potential ordinary shares.

 

(p)           Goods and Services Tax (GST)

 

Revenues, expenses and assets are recognised net of the amount of associated GST, unless the GST incurred is not recoverable from the taxation authority. In this case it is recognised as part of the cost of acquisition of the asset or as part of the expense.

 

Receivables and payables are stated inclusive of the amount of GST receivable or payable. The net amount of GST recoverable from, or payable to, the taxation authority is included with other receivables or payables in the balance sheet.

 

Cash flows are presented on a gross basis. The GST components of cash flows arising from investing or financing activities which are recoverable from, or payable to the taxation authority, are presented as operating cash flow.

 

                (q)           Parent entity financial information

               

The financial information for the parent entity, Nyota Minerals Limited, disclosed in note 28 has been prepared on the same basis as the consolidated financial statements.



NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1              Summary of significant accounting policies (cont)

 

(r)            New Accounting Standards and Interpretations

 

In the year ended 30 June 2016, the Directors have reviewed all of the new and revised Standards and Interpretations issued by the AASB that are relevant to the Group's operations and effective for the current annual reporting period. It has been determined by the Directors that there is no impact, material or otherwise, of the new and revised Standards and Interpretations on the Group's business and, therefore, no change is necessary to Group accounting policies.

 

The Directors have also reviewed all new Standards and Interpretations that have been issued but are not yet effective for the year ended 30 June 2016. As a result of this review the Directors have determined that there is no impact, material or otherwise, of the new and revised Standards and Interpretations on the Group's business and, therefore, no change necessary to Group accounting policies.

 

2              Financial risk management

 

The Group's current activities expose it predominantly to foreign exchange risk, price risk, interest rate risk and liquidity risk.  The Group's overall risk management program focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and seeks to minimise potential adverse effects on the financial performance of the Group. 

 

Risk management is carried out by the Board of Directors.  The Board provides principles for overall risk management, and is in the process of formalising and documenting these policies covering specific areas, such as mitigating foreign exchange, interest rate and credit risks. No derivative financial instruments have been used in the management of risk.

 

The Group holds the following financial instruments:

                Credit risk exposures

The credit risk arises principally from cash and cash equivalents and deposits with banks and financial institutions.

 

The Group minimises credit risk in relation to cash and cash equivalent assets by only utilising the services of the Australian "Big 4" banks for Australian held cash assets and for international cash holdings recognised international financial institutions are used.

 

The Group does not have a significant credit risk in relation to trade receivables.



NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

2              Financial risk management (cont)

Market risk

                (a)           Foreign exchange risk

Foreign exchange risk arises when future commercial transactions and recognised assets and liabilities are denominated in a currency that is not the entity's functional currency. The Group operates internationally and is exposed to foreign exchange risk primarily arising from currency exposures to British pounds.

 

Exposure

The Group's exposure to foreign currency risk at the end of the reporting period, expressed in Australian dollars is:

Sensitivity

Based on the financial instruments held at 30 June 2016, had the Australian dollar weakened/strengthened by 10% against the pound (£) with all other variables held constant, the Group and parent entity's post tax loss for the year would have been $450 lower/higher (2015: $8,000), mainly as a result of foreign exchange gains/losses on translation of GBP denominated cash equivalents. The Group's exposure to other foreign exchange movements is not material.

 

(b)           Price risk

As at 30 June 2015 and 2016 the Group's exposure to equity securities price risk arises from the Group's investment in Kefi Minerals Limited.

 

The Group is not currently exposed to commodity price risk.

 

Sensitivity

Based on the financial instruments held at 30 June 2016, if the market value of its equity securities was plus/minus 10% higher at 30 June 2016 then all other variables held constant, the Group's total comprehensive loss for the year would have been $4,500 (2015 : $8,000) higher/lower. Equity for the Group would have been $4,500 (2015: $8,000) higher/lower.

 

(c)            Interest rate risk

The Group is exposed to fluctuations in interest rates. Interest rate risk is managed by maintaining a mix of floating rate deposits.  As at 30 June 2016 the Group had no interest bearing borrowings.

 

The Group holds no interest rate derivative financial instruments.

 

Sensitivity

Sensitivity to interest rates movements are currently not material to the Group given the current low interest environment and the Company's low cash levels.



NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

2              Financial risk management (cont)

(d)           Liquidity risk

Prudent liquidity risk management implies maintaining sufficient cash and marketable securities, the availability of funding through an adequate amount of committed credit facilities and the ability to close out market positions. The Group manages liquidity risk by continuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows and matching the maturity profiles of financial assets and liabilities. Surplus funds are only invested in "AAA" rated financial institutions. As at the reporting date the Group has no access to undrawn credit facilities.

 

The tables below analyses the Group's financial liabilities into relevant maturity groupings based on their contractual maturities for all non-derivative financial liabilities.

 

The amounts shown in the table are the contractual undiscounted cash flows. Balances due within 12 months equal their carrying balances as the impact of discounting is not significant.

Fair value measurement

The fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities must be estimated for recognition and measurement or for disclosure purposes.

 

The fair value of financial instruments traded in active markets (such as available‑for‑sale securities) is based on quoted market prices at the balance sheet date. The quoted market price used for financial assets held by the Group is the current bid price.

 

The carrying value less impairment provision of trade receivables and payables are assumed to approximate their fair values due to their short term nature. The fair value of non-current financial liabilities for disclosure purposes is estimated by discounting the future contractual cash flows at the current market interest rate that is available to the Group for similar financial instruments.



NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

2              Financial risk management (cont)

The following table provides an analysis of financial instruments that are measured subsequent to initial recognition at fair value, grouped into Levels 1 to 3 based on the degree to which their fair value is observable:

·      Level 1 fair value measurements are those derived from quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

·      Level 2 fair value measurements are those derived from inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e. as prices) or indirectly (i.e. derived from prices); and

·      Level 3 fair value measurements are those derived from valuation techniques that included inputs for the assets or liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

3              Critical accounting estimates and judgments

 

Estimates and judgments are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that may have a financial impact on the Group and that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.

 

Critical accounting estimates and assumptions

 

The Group makes estimates and assumptions concerning the future. The resulting accounting estimates will, by definition, seldom equal the related actual results. The estimates and assumptions that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year are discussed below.

 

(i)            Taxes

The Group is subject to income taxes in Australia and jurisdictions where it has foreign operations. Significant judgment is required in determining the worldwide provision for income taxes. There are transactions and calculations undertaken during the ordinary course of business for which the ultimate tax determination is uncertain. The Group recognises liabilities for anticipated tax audit issues based on estimates of whether additional taxes will be due. Where the final tax outcome of these matters is different from the amounts that were initially recorded, such differences will impact the current and deferred tax provisions in the period in which such determination is made.

 

(ii)           Exploration and evaluation expenditure

The Group's main activity is exploration and evaluation for minerals. The nature of exploration activities are such that it requires interpretation of complex and difficult geological models in order to make an assessment of the size, shape, depth and quality of resources and their anticipated recoveries. The economic, geological and technical factors used to estimate mining viability may change from period to period. In addition exploration activities by their nature are inherently uncertain. Changes in all these factors can impact exploration and evaluation asset carrying values, provisions for rehabilitation and the recognition of deferred tax assets. Refer to note 13 in relation to impairment of the Group's exploration and evaluation assets.

 

4              Segment information

 

The Group has adopted AASB 8 Operating Segments which requires operating segments to be identified on the basis of internal reports about components of the Group that are reviewed by the chief operating decision-maker in order to allocate resources to the segment and to assess its performance. For management purposes, the Board of Directors of the Company has been defined as the Chief Operating Decision Maker.

 

The Board of Nyota Minerals Limited reviews internal reports prepared as consolidated financial statements and strategic decisions of the Group are determined upon analysis of these internal reports. During the period the Group operated predominately in one business being the resources sector in Italy. Accordingly under the management approach outlined only one operating sector has been identified and no further disclosures are required in the notes to the consolidated financial statements.

Ordinary shares entitle the holder to participate in dividends and the proceeds on winding up of the Company in proportion to the number and amounts paid on the shares held.

 

On a show of hands every holder of ordinary shares present at a meeting in person or by proxy, is entitled to one vote, and upon a poll each share is entitled to one vote.

 

(e)   Capital risk management

 

The Group's objectives when managing capital are to safeguard its ability to continue as a going concern, so that it can continue to provide returns for shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders and to maintain an optimal capital structure to reduce the cost of capital. In order to maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Group may issue new shares or sell assets. The Group has no debt.

(i)    Available-for-sale investments revaluation reserve

Changes in the fair value and exchange differences arising on translation of investments, such as equities, classified as available-for-sale financial assets, are taken to the available-for-sale investments revaluation reserve.  Amounts are recognised in profit or loss when the associated assets are sold or impaired.

 

(ii)   Share-based payments reserve

The share-based payments reserve is used to recognise the fair value of employee share plan shares issued with an attaching limited recourse employee loan; and employee option plan options issued but not exercised.

 

(iii)  Foreign currency translation reserve

Exchange differences arising on translation of foreign controlled entities are taken to the foreign currency translation reserve.  The reserve is recognised in profit or loss when the net investment is disposed of.

 

(iv)  Convertible note premium reserve

This reserve arose from an historic issue of convertible notes by the Company and relates to the value of the conversion rights that attached to the convertible notes issued, net of tax.
