June 2023 Quarter Highlights

During the quarter ending 30 June 2023 (June Quarter), Xanadu Mines Ltd (Xanadu or the Company) ramped up to full scale the Pre-Feasibility (PFS) programme and Discovery Exploration activities at our flagship Kharmagtai copper-gold project, funded by US$35 million cash from the Joint Venture (JV or Khuiten JV) with Zijin Mining Group Co., Ltd.
