The condensed consolidated statements of profit or loss for the six months ended June 30, 2020 (unaudited), and condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income for the six months ended June 30, 2020 (unaudited), and the condensed consolidated statements of financial position as of June 30, 2020 (unaudited) have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board, are derived from, and should be read in conjunction with, the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, as furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on September 11, 2020 under cover of Form 6-K and the Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019 contained in the Company's annual report on Form 20-F as filed with the SEC on June 12, 2020. The results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020.

Mr. Wong Wah On Edward, the Company's Chairman, commented on the results: "During 2020, we are preparing supporting documentation for the detailed geographical exploration report for official filing after the review and comment of the relevant government authorities. The outbreak of COVID-19 has severely disrupted our operations. Governmental control measures imposed to contain its spread have impacted our business by restricting the movement of our employees since the beginning of the pandemic in the PRC through mid-March, when we were able to partially re-open. COVID-19 has also affected our suppliers' workforces, and as a result we are experiencing a slow resumption of operations and may experience delays or the inability to deliver goods on a timely basis. The market demand for the copper that we trade and the metals that we may mine has similarly been negatively impacted by COVID-19 as a result of the sharp decrease in manufacturing and other activity due to the widespread closure of businesses in the PRC and worldwide. On August 17, 2020, we acquired marketable shares of Feishang Anthracite Resources Limited, which we anticipate will serve as tools to pursue potential attractive opportunities. On September 2, 2020, we received a letter from Nasdaq informing us that we had regained compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules, allowing continued access to the capital markets for ourselves and liquidity for our shareholders."
