“KRL is pleased to provide this update to its shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2022. Over the past 12 months, the Company has continued to build upon our corporate and our operational objectives. The acquisition of the highly prospective Kili Teke and May River projects mark a new phase for the Company as we progress towards targeted drilling across the KRL portfolio.
In an operational context, our MT survey assisted us to accelerate and activities at key targets, including the highly prospective Ontenu Prospect. At May River, further field survey work identified a series of interesting and exciting results at the Mountain Gate prospect.
Despite challenging and uncertain global markets, the Company has continued to receive strong support from stakeholder in PNG and investors, including participation in the private placements.
In 2023, our focus is on advancing work for drilling campaigns at selected prospects with Ontenu and KRL North being the priority. Closing the Kili Teke deal and advancing project re-optimisation work is another key focus for the Company.
The Company is well advanced on funding initiatives and expects to provide a further update in the near future.”
