Great Boulder Resources Limited (ASX: GBR) and its High-Grade Gold Project

Updated: Apr 21, 2022

✦ Patience is key, and it is helping the company discover a new mineral camp or province - the Side Well Project.

Noel Ong, CEO of Samso has finally managed to get Andrew Paterson, Managing Director of Great Boulder Resources Limited (ASX:GBR) to share his insights over a cup of Coffee with Samso.

Noel has been an advocate for mineral exploration for a long time. The recent discovery of Great Boulder Resources Limited's Side Well Project affirms his belief.

The Great Boulder story is one that he has been following since 2020. It has taken a while for the planets to be aligned, but Noel finally managed to get the Managing Director, Andrew Paterson to join him for a chat.

As they say, better late than never, and their recent conversation is making Noel even more eager to follow their development.

When Noel first looked at Great Boulder Resources, they were a company with a market capitalisation of less than AUD10M. Today, they are sitting at AUD52M.

For Noel, he understands that punters are going to see this as a 5 bag investment that has been played out. Considering that the company has a discovery but not the resource or even the initial information of building a resource, the AUD52M market cap is the premium one would be willing to pay for a safer "punt".

Given the current state of the world, investors would need to be careful about their investments. With the situation in Ukraine and the inflationary circumstances of the post pandemic world, there is much threatening the stability of the life we now have. What this means is, any investment would need to be more calculated than before, and money that goes into exploration stocks has more risks.

With or without these challenging times, Noel never tires of stressing how important it is to have an in-depth look into the technical aspects of a company and how it is managed.

Great Boulder Resources Limited has some great stories, and one cannot deny that their recent discovery in a new tectonic setting is highly attractive. One could say that they have discovered a new mineral camp or province.

Noel found Mr. Paterson to be a straight shooter and technically versed to share his thoughts. What he appreciates is his lack of blue sky narrative and his realistic expectations of what's to come. This is a thought leader you'd want to pose your questions to.
