About Highland Gold Mining Ltd.
Highland Gold Mining Limited (Highland Gold or the group) was incorporated in Jersey in 2002 for the purpose of acquiring, consolidating and developing a portfolio of quality gold mining projects in the Russian Federation with good growth potential. It is the holding company of a group comprising MNV, and two development projects, Darasun, Novo and Mayskoye.
Highland Gold holds its interests in its operations through its wholly owned direct subsidiary Stanmix Holding Limited, incorporated in Cyprus.
MNV is located in the Nikolaevsk area of the Khabarovsk Territory in the far-east of the Russian Federation. The mine is located some 650 km north of the city of Khabarovsk and is accessed from Nikolaevsk-na-Amure, the principal regional centre, via a 132-km long gravel road.
The Group owns 100% of the MNV joint-stock company, which has a licence for the extraction of gold ore. Operations at MNV consist of both underground and open-pit mining of several high grade gold deposits. In addition, MNV has its own gold processing plant.
The ore bodies at Mnogovershinnoe are located within two zones, the Main Zone and the Intermediate Zone. The Main Zone is some 5.8-km long and contains the Central, Upper and Reindeer ore bodies. The Intermediate Zone is some 6.2 km long and is located 1.5 km northwest of the Main Zone and contains the Intermediate I and II ore bodies together with the South, Flank, North, Deep, Quiet and Boulder ore bodies. The overall width of the two zones is some 2.5 km. All the ore bodies strike northeast and dip to the northwest. Generally both ore body thickness and gold grade distribution is highly irregular.
The MNV ore bodies are characterised as gold-chalcedony-quartz, low sulphide, veins. Quartz constitutes more than 95% of the ore bodies. Gold is distributed irregularly in the form of fine disseminated impregnations, small individual pockets and thin veinlets.
The Darasun project
The Darasun project is situated in the Chita Region of Eastern Russia. It consists of three deposits, Darasun, Teremky and Talatui. The Company holds a 100% interest in Darasun, which holds certain assets of the Darasun. In addition, the company owns title to mine shaft infrastructure, underground mining equipment and maintenance facilities, as well as a number of buildings.
The Darasun deposits occur within the Darasun-Mogocha zone of the Transbaikal gold-molybdenum belt. The deposits are located in a 60 km to area containing numerous gold and silver occurrences. The basements rocks, consists of early Palaeozoic metamorphosed gabbros which are intruded by Middle-Palaeozoic to early Mesozoic intrusives. The gold mineralisation is considered to be associated with Middle to Late Jurassic fault controlled intrusives represented as stocks and dykes.
The deposits at Darasun occur as thin quartz-sulphide veins. Some 140 individual veins have been identified in the Darasun area. The ore bodies consist of thin quartz veins, generally from 5 cm to 15 cm in thickness, surrounded by a halo of lower grade disseminated mineralisation. The overall thicknesses of the zones are between 0.6 and 1.5 m. Although thin, the ore zones are laterally extensive both along strike (up to 2 km) and down dip (1 to 1.2 km).
The veins at Darasun trend both to the northwest and to the northeast. The northwest trending veins are relatively small and generally do not exceed 500 m in strike length. The northeast trending veins are economically more significant. These are sub-vertical in nature and contain steeply plunging pay shoots, which in places can be traced from surface to in excess of 500 m depth.
At shallow levels the ore veins are composed mainly of quartz, pyrite and arsenopyrite while at deeper levels quartz, pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite predominate. Typically the veins consist of 32%, 14% pyrite and 11% carbonates.
The Company is currently preparing a feasibility study into the development of its 87% owned Novoshirokinskoye project, which is located in the Chita Region of Eastern Russia. An extensive amount of mining infrastructure already exists on this project including

Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
