Altyn plc (ALTN:LN) is a London-listed Main Board company with assets in Kazakhstan. The Company’s main asset is its 100% interest in the Sekisovskoye gold mine in East Kazakhstan with reserves of 2.26 Moz. The Company has a strategy to deliver transformational growth at Sekisovskoye, through its development of the underground mine, with targeted annual production of 100,000oz of gold by 2019.
In addition to Sekisovskoye, in January 2015, the Company was awarded the tender to perform further confirmatory testing in order to gain the subsoil user contract to the Karasuyskoye Ore Fields. The final subsoil contract terms and conditions, including the new financial incentives now offered specifically to the Company through the state programme on forced industrial innovative development (SFIID), have taken longer to finalise than originally anticipated but should be forthcoming in 2016. These additional terms are still expected to include investment incentives and tax reductions.
