Maintain a sharp focus on gold: Because of a weakening US dollar, global economic and political uncertainty, shortages of supply, and increasing demand for gold, most analysts predict a long period of higher gold prices. Furthermore, the management team and board have significant experience with gold exploration and development in West Africa.
Target under-explored areas within highly prospective regions: The Company believes the lowest-cost discoveries can be made in areas that haven't been heavily explored, but have highly prospective geology. This allows the Company to acquire properties relatively inexpensively, which contributes to a lower overall cost structure.
Organic growth: Orezone has the largest undeveloped gold project in Burkina Faso along with a number of strong exploration projects. The Company is well positioned technically and financially to expand its resources.
Keep costs down: Orezone maintains a low cost structure through efficient exploration and management methods, and by developing several deposits in the same region in order to achieve economies of scale.
Manage risk: The Company continually evaluates other opportunities that may offset any perceived risks associated with its current portfolio. If necessary it partners with experienced development professionals and focuses on opportunities with large size potential and high rates of return.
Become a gold producer: Orezone systematically applies advanced exploration and development techniques to bring its projects to a production decision on a timely basis. It will become a gold producer by relying on management' s wealth of experience and will apply "World Bank Standard" environmentally and socially sound, mining practices.
