Our investment strategy mimics the business model of successful multi-billion-dollar firms in the industry. Our intention is to invest in approximately 25 projects to acquire some 1,200,000 ounces of gold at an expected 68% discount to spot price and ongoing royalties for the life of the projects. We look forward to significantly scaling our operations internationally.”
“We are delighted to be serving Raptor as its lead placement agent on this $500 million offering,” said Charles Towle, CEO at US Capital Global Securities. “Raptor identifies high-grade, low-cost, development-stage gold mining projects to invest in, makes up-front payments to purchase part of their future production below market price, and receives gold from the mine’s production and sells it for a profit. Raptor aims to cherry-pick the top 20–25 projects from hundreds of gold mining ventures seeking capital in the mid-size market segment, by following its investment criteria. The opportunity to participate in this $500 million Fund is now open to eligible investors.”
