Transitioning from explorer to producer

The year 2021 proved to be a momentous one for OBM as it transitioned from being an exploration company to a gold producing company, despite the disruptions caused by the pandemic. The transition was underpinned by the successful pouring of first gold from its Davyhurst gold operations in the highly prospective Eastern Goldfields region of WA.
