Metal Tiger plc (LON:MTR) the London Stock Exchange AIM listed investor in strategic natural resource projects is pleased to announce an additional strategic investment in Red Rock Resources (LON:RRR) ('Red Rock').

  • MTR intends to exercise its right (granted previously in conjunction with the 29 April 2016 Red Rock financing) to nominate a non-executive director to the board of Red Rock.
Paul Johnson, the Chief Executive Officer of Metal Tiger plc commented:
We are pleased to announce an increase in our shareholding in Red Rock Resources. The board of Metal Tiger is keen to continue to expand our investments in natural resource companies where we believe there is significant share price upside potential as the resource sector moves into a full recovery phase.
 
We recognise the importance of stability and security that Red Rock has generated through income from oil sales, sale proceeds from Colombia and also through Red Rock?s investments notably in Jupiter Mines and Goldstone Resources.

That said, we also recognise that in a recovering resource market environment the best returns for shareholders can often lie in the reigniting of investment in hard rock mineral deposit opportunities, notably within precious and strategic metals. We are pleased that the Red Rock management team shares our thoughts in this regard and will seek to drive the strategic direction of the company to open up to the development of hard rock opportunities.

Red Rock has demonstrated an ability to deliver substantial returns from low sector sentiment conditions and we believe is worthy of further investment in readiness for the next recovery phase.

In the financial year ended June 2015 RRR made a loss of £8,411,541 (interims to 31 December 2015 loss of £22,025) and had net assets of £7,527,488 (interims to 31 December 2015 net assets of £7,947,994).
