Red Rock Resources PLC

("Red Rock" or the "Company")

Final Audited Results for the Year Ended 30 June 2020

 

31 December 2020

A copy of the Company's annual report and financial statements for 2020 - extracts from which are set out below - will be made available on the Company's website www.rrrplc.com shortly and at the Annual General Meeting to be held on 12 February 2021.

 

Chairman's Statement

Dear Shareholders,

 

We last reported to you in March in announcing our interim results, when we already had to consider what the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic might be on the world's economy, on commodities, and on our activities in the various countries in which we operate.  This has remained a consideration as the year progressed, but the impact on the Company has been mitigated by amending our programmes so that they fell within what was permissible and practicable for our local teams. Nowhere were we brought to a complete halt.  Currently a ground geophysics field programme is under way in Congo, and in 2021, ground exploration activities will begin once again in Kenya.  In both Australia and Kenya, community engagement activities have already begun in preparation for exploration activities.

 

Year Under Review - Financial Results

 

In the year to 30 June 2020, reported group profit before tax was £5.156 million after a reported loss of £1.724 million in the previous year.  This reflected primarily a reduction in impairments and the writing back, as foreshadowed in the interim statement, of the £5.280 million June 2015 impairment taken to the Kenya assets upon the commencement of litigation there.  Dividend income received during the year dropped from £0.750 million to £0.419 million, reflecting a reduced contribution from Jupiter Mines Ltd. This, and a small reduction in net borrowings, were offset by £0.504 million proceeds of the sale of financial assets.  Diluted earnings per share are 0.64 pence for the year.  Principally as a result of the write-back, shareholders' funds rose from £9.529 million to £13.965 million and total assets from £12.362 million to £18.260 million.  Administrative expenses of £0.597 million were held at nearly the same level as the previous year, despite increases in compliance and accounting costs, as office and other costs were reduced, allowing an increased budget for marketing activities.

 

Year Under Review and Since - Operations

 

An exciting development during the year was that we were able to turn the first lockdown to good account by strategizing ways in which to re-energise our Australian subsidiary Red Rock Australasia Pty Ltd ("RRAL"). A small opportunity was brought to us in Victoria, which we took in joint venture with Power Metal Resources plc, reducing our risk in a new area by taking in a 49.9% partner with complementary strengths. Further analysis, when for a time we were working Melbourne rather than London hours, led us to expand considerably, and very rapidly, this bridgehead, with what later appeared to be fortunate timing as the gold price rose, stocks with Victoria exposure rose on the markets, and vacant ground, not all of it obviously prospective, saw a rush of applications. As now a 50.1% owned joint venture subsidiary, RRAL used the lockdown period to establish a strong ground position in the Victoria Gold Fields with 14 applications, the first three of which are well advanced.

 

We have set up a local office, carried out some preliminary site and community visits, commissioned and received new geophysical analyses and a NI 43-101 Report, and spent much time on interpretation of previous work and planning future work. Three of these license applications are well advanced, and we hope to be in a position to start work on them soon. Our plans for 2021 include seeking a stock market listing for the core tenements of this joint venture.

 

During the first half of the year the Company obtained the approval of the Mineral Rights Board of Kenya for the re-grant under the Mining Act 2016 ("the Act") of its licenses in that country. Unexpectedly, due to a quirk of wording of the Act, despite the grant being under a provision allowing a 'through train' for licenses held under the predecessor to the Act, it was found, or interpreted, that licenses renewed in this way required landowner consents, similar to those required for new licenses. In a country without a central land register, and where much land is held without registered title, the obtaining of these consents presented a number of challenges. This late-arising issue was dealt with during the year, as were others, but working and movement restrictions in Nairobi imposed in response to Covid-19 meant that the Company, though compliant with all requirements, only received copies of the re-grant after the period end. 

 

The length of time it has taken to resolve this matter has been disappointing, but the targeted result has been achieved. The ability to start work again and to build on the foundation of the 1.2m oz Mineral Resource Estimate established in 2013 represents an important milestone for Red Rock and a foundation for further development.

 

The Company had been in advanced discussions with a Chinese enterprise in relation to a sale and joint venture in Kenya, but when the SARS Covid 2 story broke in the Spring, Chinese citizens became for a time unwelcome in Kenya, as that was the apparent source of the virus. Although this no longer applies, our Chinese counterparts are unwilling to travel until they have received a vaccination, and since the State geologists they had been using may also be reluctant to return to Kenya until vaccinated, Red Rock has indicated it is now open to discussion with other parties that have shown interest in our gold assets.       

 

In the Democratic Republic of Congo ("Congo" or "DRC"), considerable time has been spent over the year dealing with issues relating to the VUP joint venture, comprising principally copper-cobalt properties near Kolwezi. Our local partner had an internal family dispute to resolve, which involved some complex issues where we considered that though vexing, it was necessary for us to co-operate. These internal issues have been resolved, some minor documentation matters remain, and we expect to be able to progress more rapidly with exploration and development in 2021. 

 

In another DRC joint venture, the 80% owned Luanshimba copper/cobalt license, the closing of the country's transport links for a period in response to the pandemic meant that equipment and some crew for the planned follow up programme to the earlier geochemistry Red Rock had carried out, a ground geophysics programme, had to wait until after the end of the Company's financial year. This geophysics programme, consisting of a ground magnetics survey and six lines of induced polarization survey, has now finished its first phase and is moving into its second phase but the indications from preliminary analysis are encouraging.

 

A further DRC copper project with a good address and with a producing neighbour from the same structure, where we have applied for a direct grant, awaits finalisation.

 

The Company has devoted time and effort to developing contacts and know-how in the Congo. This has taken patience, because our view of the inviolability of contracts derives from a different historical experience, where stability is assured and so a long-term view and a deferral of reward are the norm. The Congolese experience has been more precarious, and trust needs to be earned and is not easily given. While law and contract do give a decisive advantage to the party with written evidence, that works best as a reserve power, acting in support of persistence, reliability, and persuasion.

 

Red Rock now has sufficient confidence in its ability to work within the predominantly francophone environment of the DRC to have become involved most recently in supporting the administrators and secured creditors of an Australian company Vector Resources Limited (In Administration) ("Vector"), in order that Vector should have time for a reconstruction and in order to assist with negotiation. Red Rock believes that it is capable of adding value to Adidi-Kanga, a substantial and high-grade gold project in the DRC where a majority interest is held by Vector, but where Vector's rights are being challenged. 

 

Elsewhere, the Company's interests in the Tshipi é Ntle manganese deposit, held through its investment in ASX-listed Jupiter Mines Ltd, has continued to show resilience through a period where for a while it and all other mines in South Africa were forced to close, and has continued to pay dividends that offer the prospect of a double-digit yield.

 

The decision by Jupiter to distribute to shareholders its iron ore interests by seeking a separate listing early in the New Year appears well timed, as the iron ore price returns to levels last seen at the beginning of the decade. This development offers a double benefit to Red Rock: both as a shareholder in the new float and as the holder of a 1.3% gross revenue royalty over the 1.84 bn ton magnetite iron ore Resource, Mt Ida, held by the new company. Anglo-Pacific Group Plc has an obligation to purchase 0.45% of this royalty interest from Red Rock for $8 million upon the achievement by Jupiter of certain milestones in relation to Mt Ida, namely (a) a definitive feasibility study and decision to proceed, and (b) commercial production.

 

Royalty revenues from the El Limon gold mine in Colombia have continued at a low level but improving gold prices and the implementation of a new business plan and extensive on-site expansion and shaft improvements hold out the prospect of a worthwhile contribution to our revenues in 2021 and steady state production levels beyond.

 

Other minor interests, in gold exploration in the Ivory Coast, and Elephant Oil in Benin, have made no significant impact during the period, though could prove material were they to see further progress.

 

Since year end the investment in Power Metal Resources Plc ("POW") shares and warrants, stated at a value of £0.118 million and with a book cost of £0.100 million, has increased in value to £1.096 million.  POW is at an early stage of its development and we expect it to continue as an aggressive explorer and deal-maker in the coming year.

 

Outlook

 

There is much that is uncertain in the world outlook. The IMF in its October report anticipated a global GDP growth of 5.2% in 2021, after -4.4% in 2020, a year in which it is almost China alone that is showing positive growth. By now expectations may already have changed.

 

China has become so big a demand factor for many commodities, iron ore and copper included, that sharp recent price increases have been seen in these commodities. Chinese steel production for the first nine months of the year has run at 6.8% above 2019 levels. Demand for copper from China also reflects the recovering economy, at a time when South American production has been interrupted by the effects of the pandemic.

 

Longer term, the forecast for copper demand is for 2% growth p.a., and copper investment to replace consumed reserves has been insufficient in recent years. One may also wonder whether, if the world is to be converted to alternative energy and electric cars, the implications for demand for the world's best conductor have been fully thought through and reflected in projected prices. Not only do electric cars contain more copper, but the transmission network necessary to take the electricity to the point of use, substituting for all the petrol tankers in the world, will be far greater than that currently existing.  Moreover, alternative power generation technologies require large amounts of copper to mitigate their inherent inefficiencies.

 

Turning from the industrial world to the financial, the arguments for gold as a store of value are well rehearsed, and the apparent switch from a strong to a weak dollar, combined with money creation in the world's major economies, create conditions in which gold looks at worst a defensive investment, and may at best be a very good one in 2021 and 2022. 

 

Red Rock has a balance of gold, copper/cobalt, and manganese exposure that plays into the trends we see developing.  Our aim is to exploit our strong and well-balanced project portfolio to become, in our chosen markets, an influential presence and a leading representative in the London markets. 

 

The process of recruiting additional staff and directors has been under way for several months at the subsidiary level, and at the parent is now beginning. As we develop, our capabilities and structure have to develop to match.

 

We plan an active 2021, building on the years of preparation we have undertaken with dynamic exploration programmes and active engagement with potential partners.

 

We thank our staff, old and new, our business partners and our shareholders for their support and faith in us over the period and going forward.

The accompanying notes and accounting policies form an integral part of these financial statements.

 

1.   Principal Accounting Policies

1.1 Authorisation of Financial Statements and Statement of Compliance with IFRS

The Group financial statements of Red Rock Resources Plc for the year ended 30 June 2020 were authorised for issue by the Board on 30 December 2020 and the statement of financial position signed on the Board's behalf by Andrew Bell. Red Rock Resources Plc is a public limited company incorporated and domiciled in England and Wales. The Company's Ordinary shares are traded on AIM.

 

1.2 Basis of Preparation

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and IFRIC interpretations as endorsed by the EU ("IFRS") and the requirements of the Companies Act applicable to companies reporting under IFRS.  The financial statements have been prepared on the cost basis, except for certain financial instruments, which are carried as described in the respective sections in the policies below. The principal accounting policies adopted are set out below.

 

Going Concern

The Group has recorded a profit of £5.156 million for the year ended 30 June 2020 (2019: loss of £1.723 million). At that date there were net current liabilities of £3.823m (2019: net current liabilities of £1.753 million). The profit resulted mainly from the reversal of impairment of £5.280 million, previously recognised in relation to Kenyan assets in 2015 and £0.55 million relating to the write back of creditors, which management consider are no longer due because of their age.  Cash and cash equivalents were £0.053 million (2019: £0.063 million) at year end.

 

During the reporting year, the Company has continued to receive proceeds from the sale of its gold interests in Colombia.  Payments of up to US$2.0 million are to be paid in the form of a 3% net smelter royalty payable quarterly on gold production. The Company has earned royalties of US$0.154 million to 30 June 2020, of which £17k has been received.  The Company estimates that approximately US$0.253 million will be paid out towards the US$2 million royalty during the next four quarters based on the most recent projections from the operator in Colombia.   A final royalty stream of up to US$1.0 million will be paid following the payment in full of the initial net smelter royalty in the form of a 0.5% net smelter royalty.  The gold mine at El Limon on which the royalty is based has been undergoing significant upgrades during the course of 2020, which led very low production during the reporting period, and these upgrades are expected to complete by the end of the calendar year, with substantially higher production levels projected for 2021 onward.  

 

On 28 October 2020, Jupiter Mines, a company in which Red Rock owns 13,526,914 shares, approximately 0.69% of Jupiter, announced that it would pay an unfranked dividend of A$0.01 per share for the half-year period to 31 August 2020.  This brings the cumulative payout made by Jupiter to A$260 million since its ASX listing with over US$5 million going to Red Rock Resources.  At 30 December 2020, the value of the Company's holdings in Jupiter Mines is £2.4 million.

 

Currently the Company owns 25,000,000 shares in Power Metal Resources (AIM:POW) as well as 20,000,000 warrants exercisable at a price of £0.01.  The market value of these shares at 30 December 2020 sits at £0.688 million and the net value of the options at £0.350 million, giving the Company additional financial flexibility for potential disposals over the course of the year.   

 

On 28 September 2020, the Company announced that it had raised £1.0 million by way of a placing of 125,000,000 shares at a price of £0.008 per share.  This marked the first time the Company had directly accessed equity markets since 2017, as the Company has been largely self-funded during the period relying on a mix of convertible debt instruments and its own revenue streams.   

 

During the course of December 2020, the Company announced the partial conversion and complete retirement of convertible loan notes totalling £0.867 million of principal and £0.104 million of interest, dramatically reducing the Company's overall debt position.  The Company also retains undrawn loan facilities of US$0.6 million.     

 

The Group retains a lean operating structure, with only three employees and both accounting and geological services outsourced.  The Company has continued to control operating costs through the use of part-time consultants and a minimal permanent footprint and cost basis in London.  The COVID-19 pandemic has offered the Company the ability to further cut office and administrative costs during the course of the year through discounted office rents.       

 

The Directors are confident in the Group and Company's ability to fund its basic operations from the ongoing stream of dividends from Jupiter Mines and potential disposals involving its interests in Power Metal Resources and Jupiter Mines.   The Company further considers the potential for cash generative transactions during the year involving its Australian, Kenyan and DRC gold and copper interests to be promising, and if consummated would further contribute to both administrative and operating costs.  The ongoing royalty stream from the disposal of its Colombian gold assets is also expected to increase over the course of 2021, further bolstering internal cash flows. Where additional funds are required the Group will utilise its existing debt facility or raise funds at the market. The Directors have prepared cashflow forecasts as part of their going concern assessment which anticipate that a fund raise will be required within the going concern period.

 

The Company has demonstrated the repeated ability to raise new finance as required, either in the form of debt or equity as deemed appropriate.  The Directors have concluded that the combination of these circumstances means that preparation of the Group's financial statements on a going concern basis is appropriate.  The Directors further believe that they will be able to largely fund the business internally and will be able to access external capital as required during 2020-21. 

 

Amendments to Published Standards Effective for the year Ended 30 June 2020

New Standards, Amendments and Interpretations Effective for the Periods from 1 July 2019

The following new standards, amendments and interpretations are effective for the first time in these financial statements. However, none have a material effect on the Group and Company:

 

Adoption of IFRS 16 has not resulted in the Group recognising right of use of assets and lease liabilities for all contracts that are, or contain, a lease. Since the Group currently only has short term (less than 12 months) operating leases, IFRS 16 has not had a material impact on the results or balance sheet of the Group. All the exploration areas land lease agreements that the Company has for its areas of interest are outside of IFRS16's scope.

 

IFRIC 23 is to be applied to the determination of taxable profit (tax loss), tax bases, unused tax losses, unused tax credits and tax rates, when there is uncertainty over income tax treatments under IAS 12. This interpretation has not had a material effect of the reported results.

 

There were no new standards or interpretations effective for the first time for periods beginning on or after 1 July 2019 that had a significant effect on the Group's or Company's financial statements.

 

New Standards, Amendments and Interpretations not yet Adopted

At the date of approval of these Financial Statements, the following standards and interpretations, which have not been applied in these Financial Statements were in issue but not yet effective (and in some cases had not been adopted by the EU):

 

·      Amendments to References to Conceptual Framework in IFRS Standards - effective from 1 January 2020;

·      Definition of Material (Amendments to IAS 1 and IAS 8) - effective from 1 January 2020;

·      Amendment to IFRS 3 Business Combinations - effective 1 January 2020*;

·      Amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements: Classification of Liabilities as Current or Non-current - effective 1 January 2022*.

 

*subject to EU endorsement

 

The Directors do not expect that the adoption of these standards will have a material impact on the financial information of the Group or Company in future periods.

 

Standards Adopted Early by the Group and Company

The Group and Company have not adopted any standards or interpretations early in either the current or the preceding financial year.

 

1.3 Basis of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements of the Group incorporate the financial statements of the Company and subsidiaries controlled by the Company made up to 30 June each year.

 

Subsidiaries

Subsidiaries are entities over which the Group has the power to govern the financial and operating policies so as to obtain economic benefits from their activities. Subsidiaries are consolidated from the date on which control is obtained, the acquisition date, up until the date that control ceases.

The acquisition method of accounting is used to account for the acquisition of subsidiaries by the Group. The cost of an acquisition is measured as the fair value of the assets given, equity instruments issued, contingent consideration and liabilities incurred or assumed at the date of exchange. Costs directly attributable to the acquisition are expensed as incurred. Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilities assumed in a business combination are initially measured at fair value at the acquisition date.

Provisional fair values are adjusted against goodwill if additional information is obtained within one year of the acquisition date, about facts or circumstances existing at the acquisition date. Other changes in provisional fair values are recognised through profit or loss.

Non-controlling interests in subsidiaries are measured at the proportionate share of the fair value of their identifiable net assets.

Intra-group transactions, balances and unrealised gains and losses on transactions between the Group companies are eliminated on consolidation, except to the extent that intra-group losses indicate an impairment.

 

At 30 June 2020, the consolidated financial statements combine those of the Company with those of its subsidiaries, Red Rock Australasia Pty Ltd, RRR Coal Ltd, Red Rock Resources Congo S.A.U., RedRock Kenya Ltd and Red Rock Resources (HK) Ltd.

 

The Group's dormant subsidiary Intrepid Resources Ltd, Red Rock Resources Inc., RRR Kenya Ltd., Ivory Coast, Red Rock Cote D'Ivoire sarl and Basse Terre sarl, have been excluded from consolidation on the basis of the exemption provided by Section 405(2) of the Companies Act 2006 that their inclusion is not material for the purpose of giving a true and fair view.

 

Non-Controlling Interests

Profit or loss and each component of other comprehensive income are allocated between the aims of the Parent and non-controlling interests, even if this results in the non-controlling interest having a deficit balance.

Transactions with non-controlling interests that do not result in loss of control are accounted for as equity transactions. Any differences between the adjustment for the non-controlling interest and the fair value of consideration paid or received are recognised in equity.

 

1.3 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

1.3.1    Mineral tenements and Exploration property

Licence and property acquisition costs:  Exploration licence and acquisition costs are capitalised in intangible assets. Licence costs paid in connection with a right to explore in an existing exploration area are capitalised and amortised over the term of the permit. Licence and property acquisition costs are reviewed at each reporting date to confirm that there is no indication that the carrying amount exceeds the recoverable amount. If no future activity is planned or the licence has been relinquished or has expired, the carrying value of the licence and property acquisition costs are written off through the statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income.

 

1.3.2       Investment in Associates

An associate is an entity over which the Group has the power to exercise significant influence, but not controlled or jointly controlled by the Group, through participation in the financial and operating policy decisions of the investee.

Investments in associates are recognised in the consolidated financial statements using the equity method of accounting. The Group's share of post-acquisition profits or losses is recognised in profit or loss and its share of post-acquisition movements in other comprehensive income is recognised directly in other comprehensive income

 

The carrying value of the investment, including goodwill, is tested for impairment when there is objective evidence of impairment. Losses in excess of the Group's interest in those associates are not recognised unless the Group has incurred obligations or made payments on behalf of the associate.

 

Where a Group company transacts with an associate of the Group, unrealised gains are eliminated to the extent of the Group's interest in the relevant associate. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of an impairment of the asset transferred, in which case appropriate provision is made for impairment.

 

In the Company accounts investments in associates are recognised and held at cost. The carrying value of the investment is tested for impairment when there is objective evidence of impairment.

 

1.3.3       Interests in Joint Ventures

The Group recognises its interest in the jointly controlled entity's assets and liabilities using the equity method of accounting. Under the equity method, the interest in the joint venture is carried in the balance sheet at cost plus post-acquisition changes in the Group's share of its net assets, less distributions received and less any impairment in value of individual investments. The Group income statement reflects the share of the jointly controlled entity's results after tax.

Any goodwill arising on the acquisition of a jointly controlled entity is included in the carrying amount of the jointly controlled entity and is not amortised. To the extent that the net fair value of the entity's identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities is greater than the cost of the investment, a gain is recognised and added to the Group's share of the entity's profit or loss in the period in which the investment is acquired.

Where necessary, adjustments are made to bring the accounting policies in line with those of the Group's and to reflect impairment losses where appropriate. Adjustments are also made in the Group's financial statements to eliminate the Group's share of unrealised gains and losses on transactions between the Group and its jointly controlled entity. The Group ceases to use the equity method on the date from which it no longer has joint control over, or significant influence in, the joint venture.

 

1.3.4       Taxation

Corporation tax payable is provided on taxable profits at the current rate. The tax expense represents the sum of the current tax expense and deferred tax expense.

The tax currently payable is based on taxable profit for the year. Taxable profit differs from accounting profit as reported in the statement of comprehensive income because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or deductible in other years and it further excludes items that are never taxable or deductible. The Group's liability for current tax is measured using tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date.

 

Deferred tax is the tax expected to be payable or recoverable on differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities in the financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of taxable profit and is accounted for using the balance sheet liability method. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which deductible temporary differences can be utilised. Such assets and liabilities are not recognised if the temporary difference arises from the initial recognition of goodwill or from the initial recognition (other than in a business combination) of other assets and liabilities in a transaction which affects neither the taxable profit nor the accounting profit.

 

Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for taxable temporary differences arising on investments in subsidiaries and associates, and interests in joint ventures, except where the Group is able to control the reversal of the temporary difference and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future.

 

Deferred tax is calculated at the tax rates that are expected to apply to the period when the asset is realised or the liability is settled based upon tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date.

 

Deferred tax is charged or credited in profit or loss, except when it relates to items credited or charged directly to equity, in which case the deferred tax is also dealt with in equity, or items charged or credited directly to other comprehensive income, in which case the deferred tax is also recognised in other comprehensive income.

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset where there is a legally enforceable right to offset current tax assets and liabilities and the deferred tax relates to income tax levied by the same tax authorities on either:

·      the same taxable entity; or

·      different taxable entities, which intend to settle current tax assets and liabilities on a net basis or to realise and settle them simultaneously in each future period when the significant deferred tax assets and liabilities are expected to be realised or settled.

 

 

1.3.5    Foreign Currencies

Both the functional and presentational currency of Red Rock Resources Plc is Sterling (£). Each Group entity determines its own functional currency and items included in the financial statements of each entity are measured using that functional currency.

The functional currency of the foreign subsidiaries are Australian Dollars (A$) and Kenyan Shillings.

Transactions in currencies other than the functional currency of the relevant entity are initially recorded at the exchange rate prevailing on the dates of the transaction. At each reporting date, monetary assets and liabilities that are denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the exchange rate prevailing at the reporting date. Non-monetary assets and liabilities carried at fair value that are denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the rates prevailing at the date when the fair value was determined. Gains and losses arising on translation are included in profit or loss for the period, except for exchange differences on non-monetary assets and liabilities, which are recognised directly in other comprehensive income when the changes in fair value are recognised directly in other comprehensive income.

On consolidation, the assets and liabilities of the Group's overseas operations are translated into the Group's presentational currency at exchange rates prevailing at the reporting date. Income and expense items are translated at the average exchange rates for the period unless exchange rates have fluctuated significantly during the year, in which case the exchange rate at the date of the transaction is used. All exchange differences arising, if any, are recognised as other comprehensive income and are transferred to the Group's foreign currency translation reserve.

 

1.3.6    Share-Based Payments

 

Share Options

The Group operates an equity-settled share-based payment arrangement whereby the fair value of services provided is determined indirectly by reference to the fair value of the instrument granted.

The fair value of options granted to Directors and others in respect of services provided is recognised as an expense in the income statement with a corresponding increase in equity reserves - the share-based payment reserve until the award has been settled and then make a transfer to share capital.

On exercise or lapse of share options, the proportion of the share-based payment reserve relevant to those options is transferred to retained earnings. On exercise, equity is also increased by the amount of the proceeds received.

The fair value is measured at grant date and charged over the vesting period during which the option becomes unconditional.

The fair value of options is calculated using the Black-Scholes model taking into account the terms and conditions upon which the options were granted. The exercise price is fixed at the date of grant.

Non-market conditions are performance conditions that are not related to the market price of the entity's equity instruments. They are not considered when estimating the fair value of a share-based payment. Where the vesting period is linked to a non-market performance condition, the Group recognises the goods and services it has acquired during the vesting period based on the best available estimate of the number of equity instruments expected to vest. The estimate is reconsidered at each reporting date based on factors such as a shortened vesting period, and the cumulative expense is 'trued up' for both the change in the number expected to vest and any change in the expected vesting period.

Market conditions are performance conditions that relate to the market price of the entity's equity instruments. These conditions are included in the estimate of the fair value of a share-based payment. They are not taken into account for the purpose of estimating the number of equity instruments that will vest. Where the vesting period is linked to a market performance condition, the Group estimates the expected vesting period. If the actual vesting period is shorter than estimated, the charge is accelerated in the period that the entity delivers the cash or equity instruments to the counterparty. When the vesting period is longer, the expense is recognised over the originally estimated vesting period.

 

For other equity instruments granted during the year (i.e. other than share options), fair value is measured on the basis of an observable market price.

 

Warrants or options issued to parties other than employees are valued based on the value of the service provided.

 

Share Incentive Plan

Where shares are granted to employees under the Share Incentive Plan, the fair value of services provided is determined indirectly by reference to the fair value of the free, partnership and matching shares granted on the grant date. Fair value of shares is measured on the basis of an observable market price, i.e. share price as at grant date, and is recognised as an expense in the income statement on the date of the grant. For the partnership shares the charge is calculated as the excess of the mid-market price on the date of grant over the employee's contribution.

 

 

 

1.3.7    Pension

The Group operates a defined contribution pension plan which requires contributions to be made to a separately administered fund. Contributions to the defined contribution scheme are charged to profit or loss as they become payable.

 

1.3.8    Exploration Assets

 

Exploration assets comprise exploration and development costs incurred on prospects at an exploratory stage. These costs include the cost of acquisition, exploration, determination of recoverable reserves, economic feasibility studies and all technical and administrative overheads directly associated with those projects. These costs are carried forward in the Statement of Financial Position as non-current intangible assets less provision for identified impairments.

Recoverability of exploration and development costs is dependent upon successful development and commercial exploitation of each area of interest and will be amortised over the expected commercial life of each area once production commences. The Group and the Company currently have no exploration assets where production has commenced.

The Group adopts the "area of interest" method of accounting whereby all exploration and development costs relating to an area of interest are capitalised and carried forward until abandoned. In the event that an area of interest is abandoned, or if the Directors consider the expenditure to be of no value, accumulated exploration costs are written off in the financial year in which the decision is made. All expenditure incurred prior to approval of an application is expensed with the exception of refundable rent which is raised as a receivable.

Upon disposal, the difference between the fair value of consideration receivable for exploration assets and the relevant cost within non-current assets is recognised in the Income Statement.

 

1.3.9    Impairment of Non-Financial Assets

The carrying values of assets, other than those to which IAS 36 "Impairment of Assets" does not apply, are reviewed at the end of each reporting period for impairment when there is an indication that the assets might be impaired. Impairment is measured by comparing the carrying values of the assets with their recoverable amounts. The recoverable amount of the assets is the higher of the assets' fair value less costs to sell and their value-in-use, which is measured by reference to discounted future cash flow.

An impairment loss is recognised immediately in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income.

When there is a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable amount, a subsequent increase in the recoverable amount of an asset is treated as a reversal of the previous impairment loss and is recognised to the extent of the carrying amount of the asset that would have been determined (net of amortisation and depreciation) had no impairment loss been recognised. The reversal is recognised in profit or loss immediately, unless the asset is carried at its revalued amount, in which case the reversal of the impairment loss is treated as a revaluation increase.

 

1.3.10 Finance Income/Expense

Finance income and expense is recognised as interest accrues using the effective interest method. This is a method of calculating the amortised cost of a financial asset and allocating the interest income over the relevant period using the effective interest rate, which is the rate that exactly discounts estimated future cash receipts or re-payments through the expected life of the financial asset or liability to the net carrying amount of the financial asset or liability.

 

1.3.11 Financial Instruments

The Group classifies its financial assets into one of the categories discussed below, depending on the purpose for which the asset was acquired. The Group's accounting policy for each category is as follows:

 

Fair Value through Profit or Loss (FVTPL)

This category comprises in-the-money derivatives and out-of-money derivatives where the time value offsets the negative intrinsic value. They are carried in the statement of financial position at fair value with changes in fair value recognised in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income in the finance income or expense line. Other than derivative financial instruments, which are not designated as hedging instruments, the Group does not have any assets held for trading nor does it voluntarily classify any financial assets as being at fair value through profit or loss.

 

Amortised Cost

These assets comprise the types of financial assets where the objective is to hold these assets in order to collect contractual cash flows and the contractual cash flows are solely payments of principal and interest. They are initially recognised at fair value plus transaction costs that are directly attributable to their acquisition or issue and are subsequently carried at amortised cost using the effective interest rate method, less provision for impairment. Impairment provisions for current and non-current trade receivables are recognised based on the simplified approach within IFRS 9 using a provision matrix in the determination of the lifetime expected credit losses.

During this process the probability of the non-payment of the trade receivables is assessed. This probability is then multiplied by the amount of the expected loss arising from default to determine the lifetime expected credit loss for the trade receivables. For the receivables, which are reported net, such provisions are recorded in a separate provision account with the loss being recognised in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income. On confirmation that the receivable will not be collectable, the gross carrying value of the asset is written off against the associated provision.

Impairment provisions for receivables from related parties and loans to related parties are recognised based on a forward-looking expected credit loss model. The methodology used to determine the amount of the provision is based on whether there has been a significant increase in credit risk since initial recognition of the financial asset, based on analysis of internal or external information. For those where the credit risk has not increased significantly since initial recognition of the financial asset, twelve month expected credit losses along with gross interest income are recognised. For those for which credit risk has increased significantly, lifetime expected credit losses along with the gross interest income are recognised. For those that are determined to be credit impaired, lifetime expected credit losses along with interest income on a net basis are recognised. 

The Group considers a financial asset in default when contractual payments are 180 days past due. However, in certain cases, the Group may also consider a financial asset to be in default when internal or external information indicates that the Group is unlikely to receive the outstanding contractual amounts in full before taking into account any credit enhancements held by the Group. A financial asset is written off when there is no reasonable expectation of recovering the contractual cash flows.

The Group's financial assets measured at amortised cost comprise trade and other receivables and cash and cash equivalents in the consolidated statement of financial position. Cash and cash equivalents include cash in hand, deposits held at call with banks, other short term highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less, and - for the purpose of the statement of cash flows - bank overdrafts. Bank overdrafts are shown within loans and borrowings in current liabilities on the consolidated statement of financial position.

 

Fair Value through Other Comprehensive Income (FVTOCI)

The Group has a number of strategic investments in listed and unlisted entities, which are not accounted for as subsidiaries, associates or jointly controlled entities. For those investments, the Group has made an irrevocable election to classify the investments at fair value through other comprehensive income rather than through profit or loss as the Group considers this measurement to be the most representative of the business model for these assets. They are carried at fair value with changes in fair value recognised in other comprehensive income and accumulated in the fair value through other comprehensive income reserve. Upon disposal any balance within fair value through other comprehensive income reserve is reclassified directly to retained earnings and is not reclassified to profit or loss.

Dividends are recognised in profit or loss, unless the dividend clearly represents a recovery of part of the cost of the investment, in which case the full or partial amount of the dividend is recorded against the associated investments carrying amount.

Purchases and sales of financial assets measured at fair value through other comprehensive income are recognised on settlement date with any change in fair value between trade date and settlement date being recognised in the fair value through other comprehensive income reserve.

 

Fair Value Measurement

Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The fair value measurement is based on the presumption that the transaction to sell the asset or transfer the liability takes place either:

·      In the principal market for the asset or liability; or

·      In the absence of a principal market, in the most advantageous market for the asset or liability

The principal or the most advantageous market must be accessible by the Group.

The fair value of an asset or a liability is measured using the assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability, assuming that market participants act in their economic best interest.

A fair value measurement of a non-financial asset takes into account a market participant's ability to generate economic benefits by using the asset in its highest and best use or by selling it to another market participant that would use the asset in its highest and best use.

 

The Group uses valuation techniques that are appropriate in the circumstances and for which sufficient data are available to measure fair value, maximising the use of relevant observable inputs and minimising the use of unobservable inputs.

All assets and liabilities for which fair value is measured or disclosed in the financial statements are categorised within the fair value hierarchy, described as follows, based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement as a whole:

·      Level 1 - Quoted (unadjusted) market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities

·      Level 2 - Valuation techniques for which the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement is directly or indirectly observable

·      Level 3 - Valuation techniques for which the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement is unobservable

For assets and liabilities that are recognised in the financial statements on a recurring basis, the Group determines whether transfers have occurred between levels in the hierarchy by re-assessing categorisation (based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement as a whole) at the end of each reporting period.

 

For the purpose of fair value disclosures, the Group has determined classes of assets and liabilities on the basis of the nature, characteristics and risks of the asset or liability and the level of the fair value hierarchy, as explained above.

Financial Liabilities

The Group classifies its financial liabilities into one of two categories, depending on the purpose for which the liability was acquired:

 

Fair Value through Profit or Loss (FVTPL)

This category comprises out-of-the-money derivatives where the time value does not offset the negative intrinsic value or any liabilities held for trading. They are carried in the consolidated statement of financial position at fair value with changes in fair value recognised in the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income. The Group did not hold any such liabilities at the date of IFRS 9 adoption or at the end of the reporting year.

 

Other Financial Liabilities

Other financial liabilities include

-       Borrowings, which are initially recognised at fair value net of any transaction costs directly attributable to the issue of the instrument. Such interest-bearing liabilities are subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest rate method, which ensures that any interest expense over the period to repayment is at a constant rate on the balance of the liability carried in the consolidated statement of financial position. For the purposes of each financial liability, interest expense includes initial transaction costs and any premium payable on redemption, as well as any interest or coupon payable while the liability is outstanding.

-       Liability components of convertible loan notes are measured as described further below.

-       Trade payables and other short-term monetary liabilities, which are initially recognised at fair value and subsequently carried at amortised cost using the effective interest method.

 

1.4.11     Investments in the Company Accounts

Investments in subsidiary companies are classified as non-current assets and included in the Statement of Financial Position of the Company at cost at the date of acquisition less any identified impairments.

For acquisitions of subsidiaries or associates achieved in stages, the Company re-measures its previously held equity interests in the acquiree at its acquisition-date fair value and recognises the resulting gain or loss, if any, in profit or loss. Any gains or losses previously recognised in other comprehensive income are transferred to profit and loss.

Investments in associates and joint ventures are classified as non-current assets and included in the statement of financial position of the Company at cost at the date of acquisition less any identified impairment.

 

1.4.12     Dividend Income

Dividends received from strategic investments are recognised when they become legally receivable. In case of interim dividends, this is when declared. In case of final dividends, this is when approved by the shareholders at the AGM.

 

1.4.13     Share Capital

Financial instruments issued by the Group are classified as equity only to the extent that they do not meet the definition of a financial liability or financial asset. The Group's ordinary shares are classified as equity instruments.

1.4.14     Convertible Debt

The proceeds received on issue of the Group's convertible debt are allocated into their liability and equity components. The amount initially attributed to the debt component equals the discounted cash flows using a market rate of interest that would be payable on a similar debt instrument that does not include an option to convert. Subsequently, the debt component is accounted for as a financial liability measured at amortised cost until extinguished on conversion or maturity of the bond. The remainder of the proceeds is allocated to the conversion option and is recognised in the "Convertible debt option reserve" within shareholders' equity, net of income tax effects.

 

1.4.15     Warrants

Derivative contracts that only result in the delivery of a fixed amount of cash or other financial assets for a fixed number of an entity's own equity instruments are classified as equity instruments. When warrants are issued attached to specific loan notes, the Company estimates the fair value of the issued warrants using the Black-Scholes pricing model taking into account the terms and conditions upon which the warrants were issued, value of such warrants is deducted from the balance of loan notes a directly attributable transaction cost. Warrants relating to equity finance and issued together with ordinary shares placement are valued by residual method and treated as directly attributable transaction costs and recorded as a reduction of share premium account based on the fair value of the warrants. Warrants classified as equity instruments are not subsequently re-measured.

1.5    Significant Accounting Judgements, Estimates and Assumptions

The preparation of the Group's consolidated financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities at the end of the reporting period. However, uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could result in outcomes that require a material adjustment to the carrying amount of the asset or liability affected in future periods.

 

Significant Judgements in Applying the Accounting Policies

In the process of applying the Group's accounting policies, management has made the following judgements, which have the most significant effect on the amounts recognised in the consolidated financial statements:

 

Recognition of Holdings less than 20% as an Associate

The Company owns 15% of the issued share capital of Mid Migori Mining Company Ltd ("MMM"). Andrew Bell is a member of the board of MMM. In accordance with IAS 28, the Directors of the Company consider this, and the input of resource by the Company in respect of drilling and analytical activities, to provide the Group with significant influence as defined by the standard. As such, MMM has been recognised as an associate for the years ended 30 June 2020 and 30 June 2019.

The effect of recognising MMM as an FVTOCI financial asset would be to decrease the profit by £25 (2019: decrease the profit by £511).

 

Reversal of previous impairment and Value of Exploration Properties

Kenya - MMM

Prospecting Licenses PL/2018/0202 and PL/2018/0203 (Formerly SPL 122 and 202) have been renewed for a further three-year period beginning 2 August 2020.  This renewal marked the end of a series of legal proceedings against the Ministry of Mining in Kenya dating back to 2017 and this renewal definitively resolved these outstanding matters. The Company is now embarking on a program to repair and upgrade the camp facilities in anticipation of initiation of further exploration activities, the first significant activities conducted on the project since 2014.

The project has a historic gold resource of 1.2m oz at a grade of 1.21g/t, with higher grade areas demonstrating over 1.7g/t.  The project is located in the Migori Greenstone Belt, an area that forms part of the Nyanzian supergroup, itself part of the northern extension of the gold-enriched Archaean Tanzanian Craton.

With gold prices during 2019-2020 having gone from $1,528 to $1,867 at the time of writing and having reached a peak of $2,036 earlier in the year, these values imply in situ values of the gold in the ground of between $1.8 to 2.4bn.  These values also do not take into consideration any potential exploration upside (in both ounces or grade) in the area.  The Company believes that additional drilling may be able to be take the total gold resource to over 3m Oz likely at a higher total grade.   

 

1.5  Significant Accounting Judgements, Estimates and Assumptions

 

Reversal of previous impairment and Value of Exploration Properties

 

Overall, the Directors are now optimistic that the project has finally moved on from the multi-year legal issues and is now again an active exploration project.  With gold prices reaching significant highs in recent months and development occurring in the region at the North Mara resource to the project's south and at Shanta Gold to the north, the exploration prospects for this project look exceptionally encouraging.   

As such, the Board took a decision to reverse a previous impairment of the Mid Migori receivable of £5.28m, while holding the existing investment in Mid Migori steady at £1.08m.  The Board feels comfortable that the amounts received from any disposal or transaction involving these assets will in sum likely exceed these combined carrying amounts.   

 

Significant Accounting Estimates and Assumptions

The carrying amounts of certain assets and liabilities are often determined based on estimates and assumptions of future events. The key estimates and assumptions that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of certain assets and liabilities within the next annual reporting period include the impairment determinations, the useful lives of property, plant and equipment, the bad debt provision and the fair values of our financial assets and liabilities. 

 

Fair value of MFP Sales proceeds receivable

In estimating the fair value of the Company's future gold royalties from Colombia, the Directors have made assumptions about the future cash flows which include the following key assumptions:

 

·      Gold price (US$/oz) - US$1,800 (2019: US$1,200);

·      Discount rate - 10% (2019: 10%); and

·      Annual production rate - 10,530oz (2019: 16,783oz)

 

The fair value is directly sensitive to any changes in the key assumptions.

 

Share-Based Payment Transactions

The Group measures the cost of equity-settled transactions with employees by reference to the fair value of the equity instruments at the date at which they are granted. The fair value of share options is determined using the Black-Scholes model. The model has its strengths and weaknesses and requires six inputs as a minimum: 1. The share price; 2. The exercise price; 3. The risk-free rate of return; 4. The expected dividends or dividend yield; 5. The life of the option; and 6. The volatility of the expected return. The first three inputs are normally, but not always, straightforward. The last three involve greater judgement and have the greatest impact on the fair value.

 

Impairment of Financial Assets

A financial asset or a group of financial assets is deemed to be impaired if, and only if, there is objective evidence of impairment as a result of one or more events that has occurred after the initial recognition of the asset (an incurred "loss event") and that loss event has an impact on the estimated future cash flows of the financial asset or the group of financial assets that can be reliably estimated. This determination requires significant judgement. In making this judgement, the Group evaluates, among other factors, the duration and extent to which fair value of an investment is less than its cost.

 

In the case of equity investments classified as financial instruments with fair value through other comprehensive income (FVTOCI), objective evidence would include a significant or prolonged decline in the fair value of the investment below its cost. "Significant" is evaluated against the original cost of the investment and "prolonged" against the period in which the fair value has been below its original cost. Mining share prices typically have more volatility than most other shares and this is taken into account by management when considering if a significant decline in the fair value of its mining investments has occurred. Management would consider that there is a prolonged decline in the fair value of an equity investment when the period of decline in fair value has extended to beyond the expectation management have for the equity investment. This expectation will be influenced particularly by the company development cycle of the investment.

 

Following discussions with the management team of Elephant Oil Ltd and internal analysis conducted on the company's projects and prospects for onshore oil exploration activities in Benin, Red Rock has decided to impair its investment in Elephant Oil by 50%, to £0.137 million. 

 

Impairment of Non-financial Assets

The Group follows the guidance of IAS 36 to determine when a non-financial asset is impaired. The Group assesses, at each reporting date, whether there is an indication that an asset may be impaired. If any indication exists, or when annual impairment testing for an asset is required, the Group estimates the asset's recoverable amount. An asset's recoverable amount is the higher of an asset's or cash-generating unit's (CGU) fair value less costs to sell and its value in use. Recoverable amount is determined for an individual asset, unless the asset does not generate cash inflows that are largely independent of those from other assets or groups of assets. When the carrying amount of an asset or CGU exceeds its recoverable amount, the asset is considered impaired and is written down to its recoverable amount.

 

In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset. In determining fair value less costs to sell, recent market transactions are taken into account. If no such transactions can be identified, an appropriate valuation model is used. These calculations are corroborated by valuation multiples, quoted share prices for publicly traded companies or other available fair value indicators.

 

The Group bases its impairment calculation on detailed projections, which are prepared separately for each of the Group's CGUs to which the individual assets are allocated. These projections generally cover a period of five years with a terminal value or salvage value applied.

 

Impairment losses of continuing operations are recognised in the income statement in expense categories consistent with the function of the impaired asset.

 

For investments in associates and joint ventures, the Group assesses impairment after the application of the equity method.

 

2.     Segmental Analysis

The Group considered its mining and exploration activities as separate segments. These are in addition to the investment activities, which continue to form a significant segment of the business.

The Group has made a strategic decision to concentrate on several commodities ranging from gold to manganese and copper/cobalt, and as such further segmental analysis by commodity has not been considered useful or been presented. Transfer prices between operating segments are on an arm's length basis in a manner similar to transactions with third parties.

10. Earnings Per Share

The basic earnings / (loss) per share is derived by dividing the loss for the year attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Parent by the weighted average number of shares in issue. Diluted earnings / (loss) per share is derived by dividing the loss for the year attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Parent by the weighted average number of shares in issue plus the weighted average number of Ordinary shares that would be issued on conversion of all dilutive potential Ordinary shares into Ordinary shares.

Mid Migori Mining Company Ltd

The Company owns 15% of the issued share capital of Mid Migori Mining Company Ltd ("MMM") incorporated in Kenya. The Company has entered into an agreement whereby it manages and funds a number of MMM's development projects and has representation on the MMM board. In accordance with IAS 28, the involvement with MMM meets the definition of significant influence and therefore has been accounted for as an associate (note 1.5).

 

VUP Musonoi Mining SA

Exploration assets were capitalised

-       for the Galaxy (DRC) project since 17 October 2018, when exploration commenced at the project license in the DRC;

-       for the VUP (DRC) project since 22 November 2018, when the joint venture agreement was finalised.

 

Non-current related party receivables of £9.479 million were reclassified to Exploration Assets after the restoration of the Kenyan gold licenses (in 2019: classified as a non-current receivable of £3.887 million, note 17). The reclassification was made following a reversal in full of a previously recognised impairment charge that was made in relation to those licences in 2015 in the amount of £5.280 million.

 

Under 2018 agreement with MMM partner Kansai Mining Corporation Ltd., in the event of a renewal or reissue of licenses covering the relevant assets the Company will within three months make further payment of US$2.5 million (£2.028 million) payable to Kansai Mining Corporation Ltd. For further details of the payments see note 27.

 

Management have considered the recoverability of this asset and have considered the recent announcement regarding the restoration of the Kenyan gold licenses as well as the potential to complete a transaction involving these assets and considers the likely proceeds from such a transaction would exceed the value of the Exploration property.

Credit Risk

 

The Group's exposure to credit risk, or the risk of counterparties defaulting, arises mainly from notes and other receivables. The Directors manage the Group's exposure to credit risk by the application of monitoring procedures on an ongoing basis. For other financial assets (including cash and bank balances), the Directors minimise credit risk by dealing exclusively with high credit rating counterparties.  The Company defines default through a framework of qualitative "unlikeliness to pay" with a more objective 90 days past due timeline.  The qualitative criteria allows the Company to identify exposure early on in the process, with the 90 day past due limit providing a clear final metric. 

 

Credit Risk Concentration Profile

 

The Group's receivables do not have significant credit risk exposure to any single counterparty or any group of counterparties having similar characteristics. The Directors define major credit risk as exposure to a concentration exceeding 10% of a total class of such asset.

 

The Company maintains its cash reserves in Coutts & Co, which maintains the following credit ratings:

The MFP sale proceeds represent the fair value of the non-current portion of the deferred consideration receivable for the sale of MFP. The fair value was estimated based on the consideration offered by the buyer adjusted to its present value based on the timing for which the consideration is expected to be received. The most significant inputs are the offer price per tranches, discount rate and estimated royalty stream. The estimated royalty stream takes into account current production levels, estimates of future production levels and gold price forecasts.

On 17 December 2019, the Company announced that holders of £0.860 million of principal value of Convertible Loan Notes, first announced on 10 November 2017 and again on 2 January 2019, had applied to renew the notes with a new final redemption date of 19 December 2020.  These renewed Notes carry an interest rate of 12% and a conversion price of £0.006 per share.

 

After the year-end, during the week to 18 December 2020 the Company received conversion notices in respect of £810,000 of Convertible Loan Notes and issued 147,273,376 new Red Rock ordinary shares at 0.6 pence a share in respect of principal and interest. A further £0.050 million of Convertible Loan Notes were redeemed for cash.

Ordinary shares represent the company's basic voting rights and reflect the equity ownership of the Company. Ordinary shares carry one vote per share and each share gives equal right to dividends. These shares also give right to the distribution of the company's assets in the event of winding-up or sale.

 

Subject to the provisions of the Companies Act 2006, the deferred shares may be cancelled by the company, or bought back for £1 and then cancelled. The deferred shares are not quoted and carry no rights whatsoever.

 

Warrants

 

At 30 June 2020, the Company had 101,740,195 warrants in issue (2019: 109,552,695) with a weighted average exercise price of £0.0087 (2019: £0.0118). Weighted average remaining life of the warrants at 30 June 2020 was 631 days (2019: 433 days). All the warrants were issued by the Group to its shareholders in the capacity of shareholders and therefore are outside of IFRS 2 scope.

Capital Management

Management controls the capital of the Group in order to control risks, provide the shareholders with adequate returns and ensure that the Group can fund its operations and continue as a going concern.  The Group's debt and capital includes Ordinary share capital and financial liabilities, supported by financial assets (note 23).  There are no externally imposed capital requirements.  Management effectively manages the Group's capital by assessing the Group's financial risks and adjusting its capital structure in response to changes in these risks and in the market. These responses include the management of debt levels, distributions to shareholders and share issues.  There have been no changes in the strategy adopted by management to control the capital of the Group since the prior year.

 

21.  Reserves

 

Share Premium

The share premium account represents the excess of consideration received for shares issued above their nominal value net of transaction costs.

 

Foreign Currency Translation Reserve

The translation reserve represents the exchange gains and losses that have arisen from the retranslation of overseas operations.

 

Retained Earnings

Retained earnings represent the cumulative profit and loss net of distributions to owners.

 

Fair Value Through Other Comprehensive Income Financial Assets Revaluation Reserve

The available for sale trade investments reserve represents the cumulative revaluation gains and losses in respect of available for sale trade investments.

 

Share-Based Payment Reserve

The share-based payment reserve represents the cumulative charge for options granted, still outstanding and not exercised.

 

Warrant Reserve

The warrant reserve represents the cumulative charge for warrants granted, still outstanding and not exercised.

 

22.    Share-Based Payments

 

Employee Share Options

In prior years, the Company established employee share option plans to enable the issue of options as part of the remuneration of key management personnel and Directors to enable them to purchase Ordinary shares in the Company. Under IFRS 2 "Share-based Payments", the Company determines the fair value of the options issued to Directors and employees as remuneration and recognises the amount as an expense in the statement of income with a corresponding increase in equity.

 

At 30 June 2020 and June 2019, the Company had outstanding options to subscribe for Ordinary shares as follows:

No share options were granted by the Company in the reporting year (2019: none). The weighted average fair value of each option granted during the year was nil pence (2019: nil). The exercise price of options outstanding at 30 June 2020 ranged between £0.0045 and £0.008 (2019: £0.0045 and £0.008). Their weighted average contractual life was 2.28 years (2019: 3.28 years).

 

Share-based remuneration expense related to the share options grant is included in the administration expenses line in the consolidated income statement in the amount of £nil (2019: nil).

 

Share Incentive Plan

In January 2012, the Company implemented a tax efficient Share Incentive Plan, a government approved scheme, the terms of which provide for an equal reward to every employee, including Directors, who have served for three months or more at the time of issue. The terms of the plan provide for:

·      each employee to be given the right to subscribe any amount up to £150 per month with Trustees who invest the monies in the Company's shares;

·      the Company to match the employee's investment by contributing an amount equal to double the employee's investment ("matching shares"); and

·      the Company to award free shares to a maximum of £3,600 per employee per annum.

The subscriptions remain free of taxation and national insurance if held for five years.

All such shares are held by Share Incentive Plan Trustees and the Ordinary shares cannot be released to participants until five years after the date of the award.

 

During the financial year, a total of 14,717,790 matching and partnership shares were awarded (2019: 6,556,800 free, matching and partnership shares were awarded) with a fair value of £0.00145 (2019: £0.006), resulting in a share-based payment charge of £14,227 (2019: £32,227), included in the administration expenses line in the income statement.

Other Receivables and Trade Payables

Management assessed that fair values of other receivables and trade and other payables approximate their carrying amounts largely due to the short-term maturities of these instruments.

 

Non-Current Receivables

Long-term fixed-rate receivables are evaluated by the Group based on parameters such as interest rates, recoverability and risk characteristics of the financed project. Based on this evaluation, allowances are taken into account for any expected losses on these receivables.

 

Loans and Borrowings

The carrying value of interest-bearing loans and borrowings is determined by calculating present values at the reporting date, using the issuer's borrowing rate.

 

The carrying value of current financial liabilities in the Company is not materially different from that of the Group.

 

23.1 Fair Values

 

Financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value in the statement of financial position are grouped into three levels of a fair value hierarchy. The three levels are defined based on the observability of significant inputs to the measurement, as follows:

·      Level 1: Quoted (unadjusted) market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

·      Level 2: Valuation techniques for which the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement is directly or indirectly observable; and

·      Level 3: Valuation techniques for which the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement is unobservable.

The carrying amount of the Company's financial assets and liabilities is not materially different to their fair value. The fair value of financial assets and liabilities is included at the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale. Where a quoted price in an active market is available, the fair value is based on the quoted price at the end of the reporting period. In the absence of a quoted price in an active market, the Group uses valuation techniques that are appropriate in the circumstances and for which sufficient data are available to measure fair value, maximising the use of relevant observable inputs and minimising the use of unobservable inputs.

 

The following table provides the fair value measurement hierarchy of the Group's assets and liabilities.

23.3        Financial Risk Management Policies

The Directors monitor the Group's financial risk management policies and exposures and approve financial transactions.

The Directors' overall risk management strategy seeks to assist the consolidated Group in meeting its financial targets, while minimising potential adverse effects on financial performance. Its functions include the review of credit risk policies and future cash flow requirements.

 

Specific Financial Risk Exposures and Management

The main risks the Group are exposed to through its financial instruments are credit risk and market risk, consisting of interest rate risk, liquidity risk, equity price risk and foreign exchange risk.

 

Credit Risk

Exposure to credit risk relating to financial assets arises from the potential non-performance by counterparties of contract obligations that could lead to a financial loss for the Group.

 

Credit risk is managed through the maintenance of procedures (such procedures include the utilisation of systems for the approval, granting and renewal of credit limits, regular monitoring of exposures against such limits and monitoring of the financial liability of significant customers and counterparties), ensuring, to the extent possible, that customers and counterparties to transactions are of sound creditworthiness. Such monitoring is used in assessing receivables for impairment.

Risk is also minimised through investing surplus funds in financial institutions that maintain a high credit rating, or in entities that the Directors have otherwise cleared as being financially sound.

 

Other receivables which are neither past due nor impaired are considered to be of high credit quality.

 

The consolidated Group does have a material credit risk exposure with Mid Migori Mining Company Ltd, an associate of the Company. See note 1.5, 'Significant accounting judgements, estimates and assumptions' for further details. 

 

Liquidity Risk

Liquidity risk arises from the possibility that the Group might encounter difficulty in settling its debts or otherwise meeting its obligations related to financial liabilities. The Group manages this risk through the following mechanisms:

·      monitoring undrawn credit facilities;

·      obtaining funding from a variety of sources; and

·      maintaining a reputable credit profile.

The Directors are confident that adequate resources exist to finance operations for commercial exploration and development and that controls over expenditure are carefully managed.

 

Management intend to meet obligations as they become due through ongoing revenue streams, the sale of assets, the issuance of new shares, the collection of debts owed to the Company and the drawing of additional credit facilities.

Market Risk

Interest Rate Risk

The Company is not exposed to any material interest rate risk.

 

Equity Price Risk

Price risk relates to the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices largely due to demand and supply factors for commodities, but also include political, economic, social, technical, environmental and regulatory factors.

Foreign Currency Risk

The Group's transactions are carried out in a variety of currencies, including Sterling, Australian Dollar, US Dollar, Kenyan Shilling and Euro.

To mitigate the Group's exposure to foreign currency risk, non-Sterling cash flows are monitored. The Group does not enter into forward exchange contracts to mitigate the exposure to foreign currency risk as amounts paid and received in specific currencies are expected to largely offset one another and the currencies most widely traded in are relatively stable.

The Directors consider the balances most susceptible to foreign currency movements to be financial assets with FVTOCI.

 

These assets are denominated in the following currencies:
