Overview of Dacha
Investment Objectives and Strategy:
The Corporation's primary objective is to achieve, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, long-term capital appreciation through the buying, holding and selling of Strategic Minerals, particularly, Rare Earth Elements, which are predominantly supplied by China. The Corporation seeks to achieve this objective by investing in difficult to access markets by establishing trading relationships and purchasing stockpiles of Strategic Minerals. An investment in the Corporation provides an investment alternative for investors interested in gaining exposure to Strategic Minerals without the risks inherent to mining companies.
The Corporation intends that the majority of the funds it raises from time to time will be invested by the Operator to purchase and store inventories of Strategic Minerals in warehouses around the world which have been approved by the London Metals Exchange or the Minor Metals Trade Association. Most of the Strategic Minerals purchased by the Operator are held, following delivery, at licensed warehouse facilities outside of China. The Corporation generates value by (i) assembling a portfolio of Strategic Minerals that it believes has the greatest potential for capital appreciation and thereafter employing a "buy and hold" investment strategy; and (ii) opportunistically trading from time to time to realize gains to meet its investment objectives.
