Brett gives a details overview of the companies outlook and talks about the transaction with Wesdome to acquire Moss Lake and why they were interested in partnering with Goldshore Resources. They recently raised $25M and Brett discusses their plans and what they are looking to do with this in the ground. Brett also speaks about mining in Africa having spent a considerable amount of time there and what lies ahead along with the future of the mining industry.


  • An attractive aspect of entering the mining sector is that operatives get to travel the world and work in the surroundings and climates they best prefer.
  • Teams are best when built around people who are aligned with the thesis of the company, and who recognise the company’s values, goals and purpose.
  • Projects should not only be designed for the current moment, but future-proofed for future potential partners.
  • Data collection and accumulation, allows operations to gain a better understanding of prospects, and helps to save costs by more accurately targeting potential mining sites.


‘We’ve been where Goldshore needs to be’

‘There are attractions everywhere’

‘We’re spending money on things that junior mining companies wouldn’t spend money on’

‘We get a nice footprint of the geological context’
