    Great future potential for further exploration steps along 12km trend at Mara Rosa.
    • A September 2018 pre-feasibility study using a gold price of £1300,modelled 24m tonnes of reserves at 1.42 g/t for 1.1M ozs.

    The company recently overhauled their board, so a more experienced team is now in place.

    The shareholder structure is well-balanced, with the board and management holding 9%, institutional investors on 54% and high net worth on 17%

    What we like about Amarillo Gold

    They are due to close a first tranche of a private placement for $5.1 million to fund the next stage of their projects.

    The plan – being focussed on the Mara Rosa project, then to use cash flow from that project to develop Lavras do Sul.

    They’re well placed to take advantage of a strengthening gold price as they bring their Mara Rosa project up to production.

    Their share price seems very low when compared to their peers.
