The first target markets for active exploration are Australia and Canada. Both countries are among the most politically and economically stable in the world, and both have very rich natural resources. Currently, SBI Germany has secured the rights to an exploration licence with an area of about 84 sq km (28 Graticular blocks) in northern New South Wales. In the climatically pleasant mining region of New England with short distances to existing infrastructure, SBI itself wants to explore metal deposits, especially copper, gold and silver, while testing newly developed technology from European manufacturing and developing it to be ready for application.
In Canada, SBI will use the promotion of mining initiatives through tax incentives from The Canadian tax authorities (Flow-Through Shares) to finance exploration work for new ore deposits there. In the medium term, SBI Germany will also work with the European Commission in Brussels to at least test depreciation opportunities for mining investments in the EU, according to the Canadian model, in order to provide tax incentives that can contribute to the reconstruction of a European mining industry.
