Company Overview

Business Description
Northern Star Resources Ltd (NST) is a gold production and exploration company with a resource base located in the gold regions of Western Australia. NST’s flagship project is the Paulsens Gold Mine.
Strategy Analysis
Northern Star Resources are pushing to grow resources, production and cash flow at Paulsens. The Company is working hard to establish its second operating mine at its recently acquired Ashburton Project. Ashburton has a JORC resource of 668,000oz and they believe there is scope to increase this. As well as offering exploration potential, Ashburton is attractive to Northern Star because it is within trucking distance of the Paulsens processing plant.
