In this episode, we chat to Paul Cronin, MD, and CEO of Adriatic Metals, an ASX and LSE-listed precious and base metals explorer and developer that owns the world-class Vares silver project in Bosnia and the Raska zinc deposit in Serbia.

Paul’s background is in corporate finance, investment banking, funds management, and commodity trading and is a co-founder of Adriatic Metals. He describes their journey in developing this world-class polymetallic underground mine in Eastern Europe and what this is going to bring to the region.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Bosnia has a well-developed coal mining industry. But their regulations are a little outdated compared to other jurisdictions.
  • About two-thirds of their staff live locally, which is good for their standing in the community.
  • Bosnia is rich in natural resources.
  • The country has an abundance of cheap power and a fairly young diaspora that is starting to return to Bosnia, bringing all of their skills and experience with them.
  • Inflation is having an impact. For example, the cost of diesel has proved to be a big issue. But, in Bosnia, the cost of power has not soared as it has in other jurisdictions.
  • Bosnia is a vibrant, extremely beautiful, culturally rich, and welcoming place. People are extremely helpful, although some elements of bureaucracy move slowly.
  • The expectation is that they will hit the ore body on their underground mine by October 2022.
  • Production is scheduled to commence in Q2.

 

BEST MOMENTS

‘If we look at the way the two exchanges have behaved, we are still getting more liquidity on the ASX. ´

‘We are a company that delivers what it says it’s going to deliver. Largely on budget and on time.’

‘The prime minister was quoted in the Financial Times last year speaking very positively about the company and the industry.’
