The Company owns a 70% equity interest in Xinjiang Tongyuan Minerals Limited which holds Sawayaerdun Gold Project in Xinjiang. Impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the on-site industrial test on applying bio-leaching methodology on extraction of metals from large-scale samples of gold ores was delayed during the year under review. According to the analysis results on the ore sample and the immersion gold tests conducted by the Research Institute, arsenic and iron in the ore samples have been successfully removed by oxidation. It is targeted to complete the trial run gold immersion in the mid 2022.

During the year ended December 31, 2021, due to continuous difficult market conditions and the impact of COVID-19, the Group agreed with the guarantor and Dragon Silver to waive the compensation for Profit Guarantee for the financial years ended up to June 30, 2022, and to extend (i) the Relevant Years for Dividend Guarantee to the financial years ending from June 30, 2022 to June 30, 2027; and (ii) the exercisable period of Put Option to December 28, 2027. As Dragon Silver has not paid any dividend to the Group for the financial year ended June 30, 2021, the guarantor paid to the Group the compensation for the Dividend Guarantee of $108,000 in October 2021. As at December 31, 2021, the fair value of the investment in Dragon Silver together with the Dividend Guarantee and the Put Option was $1,226,000 (2020: $1,286,000) and the fair value loss was $53,000 (2020: $128,000).

Taking into account of its financial position, the management of the Group considered that its cash and cash equivalents will be more than sufficient to finance its operation, including the contractual commitments of the Gold Project of approximately $1,647,000 (2020: $1,633,000) as at December 31, 2021.
