Key strengths and risks from investment to Kiwi investors

Cockatoo Island has a history of producing the highest-grade direct ship iron ore globally, thus, possessing high-grade potential.

  • The WA Project and Mining lease contains and provides the firm with rights to use critical infrastructure.
  • The Company has a well-qualified and experienced Board and management.
  • The Company will be well-positioned financially after the Offer with a net cash balance of roughly AU$5.8 million and AU$6.3 million.

However, there are certain risks associated with the investment as well. The Company has not predicted if it will make profits or revenues in the future as it remains an early mineral-explorations company.
