    Concentration of Share Ownership


    As at the date of this report, AOG Holdings BV holds approximately 12.38% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on a non-diluted basis, Shenglin Trading holds approximately 15.32% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on a non-diluted basis and Dickson holds approximately 34.48% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on a non-diluted basis.


    Central African Republic – Passendro Gold Project


    The Company’s primary asset is the Passendro gold project, which is situated in the centre of a 25-year Mining License (355 sq km) that was awarded to AXMIN in August 2010. At the same time, the Company was also awarded two, three-year renewable Exploration Licenses, Bambari 1 and 2 (1,240 sq km), which ring fence the Mining License and cover a 90 km strike along the highly prospective Bambari greenstone belt.


    On December 24, 2012, the Company officially notified the CAR Minister of Mines and Defence of the existence of a state of Force Majeure due to the escalating rebel activity in the country and the necessity to withdraw its field operations. Prior to the Force Majeure, the Company was working towards securing financing to develop the Passendro gold project into CAR’s first modern gold mine. The following is a brief summary of the status at Passendro gold project as at December 2012. A full description of the Passendro gold project can be found in the Company’s audited financial statements for 2014 and 2013, its June 2012 Annual Information Form, the 2011 Bankable Feasibility Study Optimization & Update and its 2009 Mineral Resource Estimate prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”). All reports can be accessed under the Company’s profile on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.


    The Company through its in-country staff have maintained close communications with senior ministers and officials in Bangui and also in Bambari which is the closest city to the Company’s asset near Ndassima. AXMIN’s country representative Mr. Boubacar Sidbe recently meet with the Vice Mayor of Bambari and Sub-prefect to discuss the situation on the ground and express the Company’s desire to get back on site. Meetings have also been held with the Mining Minister and Chief of the Office of the Head of State. AXMIN remains confident that stability will eventually return to the country and that the Company will be well positioned and ready to work with the elected government of the CAR to develop a pragmatic mining plan focusing on the extremely high-grade deposits that will be safe for our employees and contractors, have limited capital expenditure and hopefully achieve very profitable returns in a very timely fashion for shareholders


    On March 26, 2018, the Minister of Mining and Geology issued an executive order No 031/18/MMG/DIRCAB/DGM to grant SOMIO Toungou an extension period of exemption from the development work and productions of the Passendro gold mine for one (1) year, running from March 22, 2018 to March 21, 2019.


    On March 26, 2018, the Minister of Mining and Geology issued an executive order No 032/18/MMG/DIRCAB/DGM to grant Aurafrique SARL an extension period of exemption from exploration and research for one (1) year, running from March 22, 2018 to March 21, 2019.


    As of the date of this report, operations at Passendro remain suspended and although the Company continues to maintain a presence in the CAR (through its administrative office and permanently stationed employees in Bangui) and relationship with the State in the CAR, the Company is unable to predict when it will be able to resume its operations at Passendro for the foreseeable future, if at all. As a result, impairment in the amount of $37,346,576 was recognized at December 31, 2013 on exploration and evaluation (“E&E”) assets for the Bambari properties to reflect the decrease in their recoverable value as of result of the current unstable situation in CAR. As at June 30, 2018, given that impairment was recognized and the unstable condition remains the same, the residual value of E&E assets for the Passendro gold project was written down to $nil in 2016.


    As announced on November 15, 2013, the Company entered into an agreement to secure its ownership of the licenses in the CAR. Under this agreement the consultant was entitled to remuneration upon the successful completion of its services. The total outstanding payments due under this agreement amount to US$2,000,000. Axmin’s management are actively pursuing negotiations to resolve this account payable on substantially better economic terms for the Company. A further announcement will be made when appropriate.


    This impairment recognized in the financial statements does not in any way mean that the Company is relinquishing its rights to the assets and it reflects the utmost conservative view by management on the objective circumstances and will be reviewed annually and subject to recovery when certain conditions are met pursuant to the accounting standards the Company has adopted.


    The Company engaged a consulting company to assist the Company to obtain compensation for its mining properties damage or loss resulted from the civil war in CAR, which amounts to around XAF 18,000,000,000 ($29.0 million) from the government of CAR. In the event that the compensation from the government is received by the Company, the consulting company will be entitled to receive 15% of the total compensation.


    Senegal Joint Venture


    On February 28, 2012, AXMIN and its joint venture partner and manager, Sabodala Mining Company SARL (“SMC”), a whollyowned subsidiary of Teranga Gold Corporation (“Teranga”) amended its 2008 joint venture agreement. At the time, Teranga had earned an 80% interest in the Sounkounkou, Heremokono and Sabodala NW explorations licenses (the “Project”) located in the Birimian belt of eastern Senegal, by spending US$6 million on exploration. AXMIN has retained a 20% interest in the Project. The amended joint venture and royalty agreement (the “Agreement”) supersedes and replaces the original joint venture agreement.


    On June 18, 2015, in addition to its royalty interest of 1.5% NSR in the Gora Target Area, AXMIN has elected to convert its 20% interests in another 15 Target Areas into a 1.5% NSR from each Target Area. On January 12, 2016, AXMIN elected to convert its 20% interest in one new Target area into a 1.5% NSR. After this Royalty Election, AXMIN holds a 1.5% NSR on 17 Royalty Target Areas (being Target Areas have been made Royalty Election on) in total and maintains 20% interests of Remainder Areas within the Senegal permits. The free carried interest of US$2.5 million granted to AXMIN under the Agreement has been depleted on account of its 20% Participation Interest in respect of all Participation Target Areas (being areas subject to exploration and both parties remain their respective interests (Teranga – 80% and AXMIN – 20%)). No further participation contribution needs to be made by AXMIN beyond this $2.5 million free carried interest with respect to the Participation Target Areas where a Royalty Election has been made.


    Full details of the exploration programs at the Senegal JV can be found on the Teranga website at www.terangagold.com.

    IMF Staff Completes Visit to Central African Republic

    September 14, 2018

    End-of-Mission press releases include statements of IMF staff teams that convey preliminary findings after a visit to a country. The views expressed in this statement are those of the IMF staff and do not necessarily represent the views of the IMF’s Executive Board. This mission will not result in a Board discussion.
    • Economic recovery continues; growth projected to reach 4.3 percent in 2018.
    • Strengthening government revenue mobilization remains a priority.
    A staff team from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), led by Norbert Toé, visited Bangui during September 7–14, 2018 to review recent developments and program implementation. The IMF supports the economic and financial program of the Central African Republic by an Extended Credit Facility (ECF) [1]arrangement since 2016. On July 2, 2018, the IMF Executive Board approved the fourth review under the ECF, bringing total disbursements under the arrangement to SDR 88 million (about US$ 123.7 million). Discussions covered the draft 2019 budget, structural reforms including the revision of the petroleum price structure, and the government’s strategy to improve public financial management and governance.



    At the end of the visit, Mr. Toé issued the following statement:



    “The economic recovery continues with growth still projected to reach 4.3 percent in 2018 and accelerate in the medium term. The projections are predicated on the restoration of peace, the extension of public services throughout the country, and a steadfast implementation of reforms. Strong and sustained growth is necessary to create jobs and reduce poverty.



    “Based on preliminary data and information collected during the mission, the economic program remains on track. Quantitative monitoring indicators for end-June 2018 agreed with the authorities have been met, but social spending underperformed. Structural reforms are advancing, although with some delays. The team emphasized the need to step up social spending to broaden public support for the reform program.



    “The team and the authorities discussed broad outlines of the 2019 draft budget with a focus on accelerating domestic revenue mobilization, consolidating the single treasury account, strengthening public financial management, and increasing social spending to tackle poverty. Given the impact of higher international oil prices on public finances the team urged the authorities to streamline the complex oil price structure. Strengthening government revenue mobilization remains a priority, including by taking decisive steps against fraud.



    “Going forward, the team and the authorities agreed on the need to accelerate the efforts to strengthen governance and transparency and sustain structural reforms aimed at improving the business environment.

    “The team met with President Touadéra, Prime Minister Sarandji, President of the National Assembly Meckassoua, Minister of Finance Dondra, Minister of Economy Moloua, the National Director of BEAC Mr. Chaibou, senior government officials, as well as donor representatives. The team thanks the authorities for their hospitality, strong cooperation and constructive discussions. The team is expected to return later this year to conduct discussions for the fifth review under the ECF arrangement and the Article IV consultation.”


    [1] Central African Republic’s ECF-supported program was approved by the IMF Executive Board in July 2016. The ECF is a lending arrangement that provides sustained program engagement over the medium to long term in case of protracted balance of payments problems.
