1 . NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND GOING CONCERN
Antioquia Gold Inc. (“Antioquia” or the “Company”) was formed by way of amalgamation on April 25, 1997 and continued under the laws of British Columbia on March 24, 2016. The registered address of Antioquia is 2800 Park Place, 666 Burrard St., Vancouver, BC, V6C 2Z7. The Company is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) under the symbol “AGD”. The Company trades on the OTCQX pink sheets, under the symbol “AGDXF”.
The Company owns 100% of Antioquia Gold Ltd., a Barbados company, which in turn has a branch, AGD Colombia, registered to conduct business in Colombia, South America. All mineral exploration and evaluation activities of the Company are carried out in Colombia. The Company owns 100% of Ingenieria Y Gestion Del Territorio S.A. (“IGTER”), a management company incorporated under the laws of Colombia.
The Company’s primary focus is the operation of its Cisneros underground gold mine located outside Medellin Colombia. Commercial production was declared at the Cisneros mine on March 1, 2019. The decision to proceed with construction and mining of the Cisneros Project, was made on the basis of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”), as compared to a pre-feasibility or a feasibility study. As a result, there is increased uncertainty and higher risk of economic and technical failure associated with the Company’s decision. Production and economic variables may vary considerably, due to the absence of a pre-feasibility or a feasibility study prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) standards. In particular, there is additional risk that mineral volumes and grades will be lower than management expected and the risk that construction or
ongoing mining operations will be more difficult or more expensive than management expected. Project failure may materially adversely impact the Company’s future profitability, its ability to repay existing loans, and its overall ability to continue as a going concern.
These interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared using International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) applicable to a going concern, which assumes continuity of operations and realization of assets and settlement of liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future, which
is at least, but not limited to, one year from March 31, 2019. At March 31, 2019, the Company had a cumulative deficit of $42,004,913 (December 31, 2018 – $39,047,575), and a working capital deficit of $96,186,049 (December 31, 2018 – working capital deficit of $89,911,748). The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to achieve profitable operations, generate sufficient funds and/or continue to obtain sufficient capital from investors to meet its current and future obligations. The recoverability of amounts shown for property and equipment is dependent on future profitable operations or proceeds from disposition of mineral interests. As a result of these risks, there is material uncertainty which raises significant doubt as to the appropriateness of the going concern assumption. There is no assurance that the Company’s initiatives will continue to be successful. These interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not reflect the adjustments to the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the reported expenses and consolidated statements of financial position classifications that would be necessary if the going concern assumption was inappropriate. These adjustments could be material.
These interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements were authorized for issue by the board of directors on May 27, 2019.
