Deutsche Rohstoff: Corporate and Management Update

Approaching the end of 2013, Deutsche Rohstoff (DRAG) gives an overview of the key developments within the company and it’s subsidiaries:

The Management had set four targets for DRAG and the group for 2013/2014 (please see Group Management Report, Annual Report 2012):

Secure financing and performing Tekton Energy’s horizontal drilling program: With the successful bond placement in the summer, DRAG succeeded in funding the extensive horizontal drilling program in the U.S. on acceptable terms and without dilution of existing shareholders. The management considers this a significant success.

Acquiring additional acreage in the Wattenberg field or other prospective sites in the U.S.: Tekton now owns over 7,000 acres within the Wattenberg field. This represents a significant increase in comparison to the original position of approximately 2,000 acres. The acquisition of land is currently ongoing.

Profitable tungsten production and extension of the life of mine: Wolfram Camp recently announced the start of commercial production and documented enough resources to extend the life of mine to approximately 10 years. Although the ramp up phase of the mine took longer than expected, the management is satisfied with the achieved status and is convinced that the mine is a strategically attractive asset.

Secure financing of Tin International and Seltenerden Storkwitz: The planned IPO of Tin International has not yet been achieved. Market conditions in the junior exploration sector are still very difficult worldwide. The company itself holds sufficient funds at present. Further funding remains a task which the management of DRAG promotes insistently. The same applies to Seltenerden Storkwitz, the initially planned IPO was postponed for operational reasons (please see below).
