Intercontinental Gold and Metals Ltd. (TSX.V: ICAU) is a Canadian-based resource company that has successfully transformed itself to become a Next Generation Metals and Mining Company providing leverage to commodity prices, exploration and development success, significant growth potential and a high return on invested capital for our stakeholders.
We began to actively trade gold through our 100% owned subsidiary Goldway SRL in mid-August 2017, just days after completing our re-structuring and financing.
As forecast we were generating revenue and profits immediately.
The business of marketing Gold and other commodities are essentially a process of transformation. Transformation in space (logistics solutions), in time (physical storage), and in form (processing and upgrading). Our expertise in these areas and our focus on servicing our clients needs are core to our past and future success.
Our commodity focus initially is gold in Bolivia, where our operating team has decades of experience servicing our client's and adhering to strict Bolivian export regulations.
Our clients are licensed artisanal miners and global gold refiners. We market conflict-free, artisanal gold production to global gold refiners. Artisanal Gold supply is increasing and demand from global refineries is also very high. Through years to dedicated client service we have earned the trust and respect of our clients, who have all responded positively and are very supportive of our direct involvement in the Bolivian, Artisanal conflict-free gold.
We believe our active involvement in the physical commodities markets will ultimately provide insights in global primary supply and demand trends that in turn create a strategic and competitive advantage on acquiring grass root exploration projects and mine development and expansion opportunities.
We also believe in being well structured, to provide high returns to our stakeholders. Post re-structuring we have 14,703,420 shares issued and outstanding and 20,294,900 on a fully diluted basis. Importantly management, board and insiders are large shareholders. We are fully committed to the success and growth of our business and completely aligned with minority shareholders.
Growth in the Bolivian gold market and beyond are inevitable and planning is well underway to expand our operations, to better service our clients and deliver high rates of return to our stakeholders.
GXM management and board have over 100 years collective expertise in exploration, development, operations, metals trading, mining finance and capital markets with a focus on trading gold and other metals, acquiring and possibly making direct investments in projects and/or providing merchant banking advisory services to the benefit of our shareholders and clients alike.
