Quarterly Activities Report
Padbury has not undertaken any work on its tenements during this quarter. The focus has been completely dedicated to Oakajee and the ongoing development of a solution for the establishment of a deep water port and associated rail network.
Padbury has continued its discussions with potential investors, construction contractors, engineering and environmental consultants as well as key stakeholders including the Midwest community, in its endeavours to establish the Oakajee port and rail network. It has also engaged extensively with government as it provides the authority for the construction of any railway within the State.
During the quarter management visited Korea to hold discussions with potential EPC contractors and investors including pension funds and government owned investment entities. Keen interest was shown by major pension funds and government investment agencies with over $400 billion in assets under management. These corporations indicated a preference for investing in projects involving Korean EPC contractors. In addition, Padbury promoted the project to a number of private investment institutions in Korea.
Management is currently working on visit programs for those EPCs which have indicated an interest in progressing the Oakajee project.
Padbury has signed further non-disclosure agreements with potential investors and contractors.
During the quarter Padbury received approval for a Program of Work for its tenement, E52/1557. It is currently awaiting the final flora and fauna study for this tenement in order to assess the next steps in its exploration program aimed at expanding its asset base.
