New fund allows 100% tax deduction for investing in “junior” mining companies

We’ve created what we believe is the lowest risk vehicle for investing in junior miners.

Gaurav Nair, JSS Empowerment Mining Fund

Next month marks the launch of the JSS Empowerment Mining Fund.

The fund will invest in South African junior mines which have completed exploration and licensing.

Some key facts about this fund:

  • 100% of investments in the Fund is deductible from the taxable income of any South African (up to 41% tax relief).

  • 70% of the investment qualifies for B-BBEE spend every year while the investment is held.

  • The Fund targets a return of CPI + 10% per year (up to CPI + 20% per year after tax benefits)

  • Construction, mining and processing company Stefanutti will provide contract mining and processing services as well guarantees against mining production volumes and processing quality. This will greatly reduce the risks associated with junior miners.
