The company reported an annual pretax loss of £465,000, significantly improving the £1 million loss recorded in a similar period last year.

The mining and exploration company with operations in South Africa revealed that the lower loss was driven by a £335,000 gain from the settlement of liabilities with equity.

Ironveld also incurred an impairment charge of £362,000 in the second half of its previous financial year, which was not the case this year and contributed significantly to its lower loss.

However, investors did not react positively, registering their disappointment by pushing its share price lower.

Some of the report’s highlights include the lapse of the option agreement with IIG in November 2020, followed by a share offering to raise £1,150,000 used to pay accrued fees/salaries to IIG, its directors and various lenders.

Ironveld also entered into a significant subscription agreement with Grosvenor Resources (Pty) Limited in October 2021 that saw it raise £5.6 million after issuing 561.5 million shares to Grosvenor.

The transaction with Grosvenor is expected to close in early 2022, and the two companies expect to work closely next year to bring Ironveld’s assets into production as efficiently and rapidly as possible.

Today’s selloff seems like a market overreaction or a vote of no confidence in Ironveld’s plans, but only time will tell if the shares can recover and head higher.
