Eoin Treacy's view

The team at Perseus are betting Sudan’s welcome for foreign investment will persist despite the threat of internal conflict. That was driven by the desire to acquire a promising asset at a discounted price. It’s a challenge every miner faces. New supplies of key resources are most often now found in politically unstable parts of the world.
