Colorado Gold Mining & Milling Operation
This company owns several of the richest mines in Colorado containing gold, silver, copper, zinc, iron and lead. The metals contained in the company’s mines and existing ore piles are used in virtually all of the world’s electronic devices from cell phones and computers to automobile electronics.
The owner is currently seeking a buyer for the entire business, or a portion thereof, to help complete construction of a “green” custom mill at the site of a rich historic mine. The closed loop high-efficiency custom mill will concentrate and separate over 90% of the precious metals from its processed ore. Leftover mine tailings will be clean and have the consistency of sand.
The owner’s business plan estimates the custom mill will be capable of producing $160mm+ per year EBITDA when in full operation. It will be the only mill in Colorado capable of processing ore from other mines in the area. There are enough client ore commitments today to run the custom mill for the next 25 years without tapping the company’s rich underground mine claims. It will take roughly 9-12 months to start production at the custom mill once funding is secured.
The historic mine owned by the company at the mill site has not been operated on an industrial level since the 1940s. Back then gold sold for $20 per ounce and its silver was largely ignored. The mine is estimated to have inferred reserves of 1.5mm oz of gold and known veins of silver up to 10 feet wide. The company’s earnings estimates become staggering once the underground resources of its mine begin to run through the mill.
