Investment Highlights


Princhester Magnesite Project

  • Located 85km north west of Rockhampton, Queensland and comprising two granted Mining Leases.
  • The area forms steeply dissected ridges where the serpentinite and associated rocks are deeply weathered and overlain in part by laterite.
  • Ultramafic intrusions lie along a fault system separating these early Paleozoic rocks from those of the Yarrol Basin in the west.
  • Intrusion of harzburgite and serpentinite as elongate north west - south east striking bodies concordant with the strike of the enclosing rocks.
  • The harzburgites have mostly been serpentinised and, as well as the separately emplaced serpentinites, have largely been weathered.
  • The magnesite mineralisation is a mixture of magnesite, quartz and magnesia silicates, which are associated with serpentinite.
  • The Princhester Magnesite Project represents a genuine magnesite resource (non-JORC) with a long history of detailed exploration and resource / metallurgical evaluation.


Bushranger Copper Project

  • Located 25km south of Oberon in the Lachlan Fold Belt in New South Wales and comprising an Exploration Licence.
  • The Project is currently the subject of the Bushranger Exploration Farmin and Joint Venture Agreement (“Agreement”), which was initially entered into by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary ORD Investments Pty Ltd (“ORD”) and Newmont Exploration Pty Ltd (“Newmont”) on or around 30 September 2011.
  • Newmont’s interest in the Bushranger Agreement was subsequently novated to Anglo American Exploration (Australia) Pty Ltd (“Anglo American”) pursuant to a Deed of Novation (“Deed”) between Anglo American, Newmont and ORD on or around 10 January 2014, with the initial interests subsequent to the Deed being 51% to Anglo American and 49% to ORD.
  • The Company has since elected not to contribute to exploration expenditure on the project and has thereby diluted its interest.
  • In accordance with the terms of the Bushranger Agreement the Company’s interest will convert into a 2% Net Smelter Royalty (subject to formal confirmation, audit and documentation).


Recapitalisation Proposal approved by Shareholders

  • On 28 August 2015 the Company, the Proponent¹ and the administrators executed the DOCA¹, which embodied a proposal by the Proponent for the recapitalisation of the Company (“Recapitalisation Proposal”).
  • The Recapitalisation Proposal was approved by shareholders of the Company at the general meeting held on 19 March 2018.
  • Actions outlined in the Recapitalisation Proposal, which are now underway, are as follows:
    • The Company will retain its interest in the Princhester Magnesite Project and Bushranger Copper Project (“Retained Assets”).
    • The Company will consolidate its existing securities on a 1:5 basis – completed 20 March 2018.
    • The claims of creditors of the Company will be dealt with pursuant to the DOCA and the Company will thereafter be debt free.
    • Settlement will occur on the date that is 3 business days after the satisfaction (or waiver) of the last of the DOCA conditions (“Settlement”). At Settlement:
      • The Creditor Payment¹ will be made to the deed administrators;
      • The deed administrators will create a creditors’ trust (“Creditors’ Trust”) and transfer any other assets or property of the Company, other than the Retained Assets, to the Creditors’ Trust;
      • The DOCA will be wholly effectuated; and
      • The deed administrators will resign.
  • On successful reinstatement to the official list of ASX, the Company will pay the Recapitalisation Fee¹ to the Proponent.

Markets Summary
Australian Market Review
Local Markets

The Australian market notched a fourth straight session of gains, driven by strength in the energy, mining and retail sectors. The ASX200 index was up 0.3 per cent at 5,861 points, while the broader All Ordinaries was up 0.4 per cent at 5,956 points.

Gains by oil and gas producers, miners and retailers offset falls in the financial, healthcare and telecommunications sectors. While Wednesday's gains were modest, the market closed near its highs for the day marking a significant shift in investor behaviour. In recent days, the share market has posted early gains before losing momentum later in the session.

Investor confidence had improved as fears of a US-China trade dispute eased, along with US tensions with Russia in Syria.

A rise in oil and iron ore prices helped lift the miners and oil and gas producers. Oil Search gained 16 cents, or 2.1 per cent, to $7.70, Origin Energy added 14 cents, or 1.5 per cent, to $9.49 and Woodside Petroleum rose 33 cents, or 1.1 per cent, to $30.72 after reporting a lift in first-quarter production and sales revenue.

BHP Billiton gained 14 cents, or 0.5 per cent, to $30.07, Fortescue Metals added four cents, or 0.9 per cent, to $4.55, while Rio Tinto lifted 87 cents, or 1.1 per cent, to $78.96 after its first quarter iron ore production rose eight per cent from a year ago.

The best performing retailers included Harvey Norman, which gained nine cents, or 2.7 per cent, to $3.44, Kathmandu added 10 cents, or 4.4 per cent, to $2.37, and JB Hi-Fi was 57 cents stronger, up 2.3 per cent, at $25.94.

Wealth manager AMP fell 10 cents, or 2.2 per cent, to $4.45, continuing its decline since admitting to the financial services royal commission that it had lied to or misled the corporate regulator about its business practices.

All four major banks also lost ground, with Commonwealth Bank the worst performer, down 35 cents, or 0.5 per cent, to $72.41.

International Markets

The S&P 500 in the US eked out a small gain while the Dow declined after a volatile trading session, with weakness in sectors such as consumer staples and financials offsetting strong gains in the energy and industrial indexes.

Higher oil prices boosted energy stocks while transport stocks such as CSX Corp helped the industrial sector. But IBM's 7.5 per cent drop was the biggest drag on the S&P after the technology company's quarterly profit margins missed Wall Street targets.

United Continental gained 4.8 per cent and lifted other airline stocks after reporting a better-than-expected quarterly profit.

Trading was choppy, with the Dow swinging between positive and negative territory while the S&P 500 gave up most of its gains in the last few minutes of trading.

In late afternoon trade the S&P briefly lost ground after a Federal Reserve report said robust business borrowing, rising consumer spending, and tight labour markets indicated the US economy is on track for continued growth, with trade war risks being the one big outlier.

The Dow Jones fell 0.16 per cent, the S&P 500 gained 0.08 per cent, and the Nasdaq 0.19 per cent.
