Within the last six months, RRS.V has made some major advances on the Snow White property. It has closed a round of financing and completed its acquisition. It has file for 43-101, submitted and received positive Optical Sorting results.
Despite, further delays with Silicon Ridge (Fall 2018), RRS.V has been able to get vendors to invest in Snow White and future project. Much like securing exclusivity with PCC and Thorsil in 2017. We see this as a key achievement in this period. While we wait for the go or no go decision on Snow White, the investment terms of SCR - shares ($0.30) and warrants of ($0.45) might suggest a high likelihood for a particular outcome.
However, a go decision involves more than positive optical sorting results and willing partners. It also requires readiness from an end buyer. Of note, warrant terms can be modified and expiration date extended accordingly. In fact, current RRS.V's Level II are less indicative of a particular outcome.
The absence of a go-decision, will likely to put RRS.V back on the prowl for other high grade silicon properties and off-takes partners. This would be disappointing in the near term, but would further strengthen RRS.V's position in terms of a Silica specialist.
One thing is certain, RRS.V has now two high grade Silica properties (Snow White and Silicon Ridge) that are fairly developed. This is a nice spread.
