Siren Gold

Fast Track Applications Submitted for the Reefton and Sams Creek Projects

Siren Gold Limited (ASX: SNG) (Siren or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on the Fast Track applications for the Reefton Gold and Antimony project and the Sams Creek Gold project.


Highlights

  • In early April 2024, the New Zealand government opened an application process for projects to be included in new legislation establishing a one-stop shop fast-track approvals regime. The intention of the Fast Track approvals process is to make it easier and faster to build nationally significant projects, as a key part of the government’s plan to rebuild the economy.
  • The Company has submitted both the “Reefton Project” and the “Sams Creek Project” for consideration and inclusion as a “listed project” in the Fast-Track Approvals Bill (Bill).
    • The Government has established the Fast Track Project Advisory Group to identify listed projects for inclusion in the Bill.
  • The Company is looking forward to receiving feedback from the Government and in the meantime is focused on the exploration programs currently under way at both the Reefton and Sams Creek projects.

Siren Managing Director and CEO, Victor Rajasooriar commented:

“The team has worked diligently to have applied for both the Reefton and Sams Creek projects to be considered and included as a ‘listed project’ in the Fast-Track Approvals Bill. The Reefton project has the potential to grow into a significant gold and antimony operation and put Reefton on the global map as a producer of antimony, which is geopolitically significant as a critical mineral.

“Furthermore, the Sams Creek project with its large endowment of gold has the potential to add significant revenue and employment opportunities for the Country. We look forward to working with the government and local stakeholders to advance both projects to fruition”.

Fast Track Approval Process

After being introduced to the New Zealand Parliament on 7 March 2024, the Bill is now being considered by the Environment Select Committee, which will provide recommendations to the House.

The Government has now established a process to identify listed projects for inclusion in the Bill. This involvesagroupofindependentexperts-theFast-TrackProjectsAdvisoryGroup (the Advisory Group), who will be assessing and making recommendations to Ministers on which projects to include in the Bill.

The Company has nominated both the Reefton Project and the Sams Creek Project to be considered and included as a “listed project” in the Bill.

The Advisory Group will undertake an assessment of the projects against the referral criteria in the Bill. It will be supported by a group of officials from the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and the Ministry for the Environment (MfE).

The Advisory Group will then make its recommendations to the Joint Ministers who will make decisions on what projects to include in the Bill. These projects will be added to the Bill, either through the Select Committee process or later in the Parliamentary process.

Kerry Stevenson: Ready to Invest After Cashing Out (Gold, Biotech and More)

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Kerry Stevenson, host of Making Money Matter, explained why she sold all but three stocks in her portfolio late last year, and what she's doing with her money now.

"I actually cashed in the whole portfolio aside from one coal stock ... and two gold stocks," she said on the sidelines of the Rule Symposium. "I've been sitting in cash up until about two and a half weeks ago, when I've come back in with quite big licks on four stocks, and I've still got some cash where I'm looking at some of the small caps."

One gold stock Stevenson is "very happy" with is Spartan Resources (ASX:SPR,OTC Pink:GYYSF), formerly Gascoyne Resources, which she said has undergone a turnaround since Managing Director Simon Lawson took the helm.

Joe Cavatoni: Gold's Next Price Catalyst After Record H1 Performance

Joe Cavatoni, senior market strategist, Americas, at the World Gold Council, reviewed gold's H1 performance and outlined what factors could drive the yellow metal in the second half of the year.

In his opinion, the sector's east/west divide remains, and will be key to watch as 2024 continues.

"I think that what we're looking at in the second half of the year is whether or not the eastern investor, who doesn't really pay much attention to where US rates are, or real rates are in western markets — they're looking at their homegrown investment requirements — will they stay active and actually continue to make that investment into gold in their investment portfolios," he said on the sidelines of the Rule Symposium.

Top 6 ASX Gold ETFs in 2024

The gold price has reached historic highs in 2024, rising well above US$2,400 per ounce. For Australian investors, the price of the yellow metal has surged above the AU$3,700 mark in the past few months.

These gains have come as investors anticipate interest rate cuts and against a backdrop of geopolitical turmoil. Gold has also been buoyed by central bank buying, with China, India and Turkey leading the way in the first half of 2024.

For many investors, gold is a tool for diversification. The precious metal is known for its ability to act as a safe haven and hence operates as a protective option when building a balanced portfolio.
