Annual Report For Year Ending Dec 31, 2009
(TSX Venture: LRA) - Lara Exploration Ltd., Annual Report
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Lara Exploration Ltd. (“Lara” or the “Company”), we are pleased to report on the activities and progress of the Company in 2009, and our plans moving forward in 2010. After a profitable year in 2008 from the sale of the Mantaro Phosphate deposit in Peru, 2009 was marked by tougher market conditions and the need for reorganization as several joint ventures fell away and new partners were harder to come by. However, we were able to clean up the portfolio and complete several transactions by year-end that promise to make 2010 a much more productive year.
Lara’s business model is that of a Prospect Generator, very different from most listed exploration juniors, in that we make modest investments in many projects across a broad range of commodities and seek to develop them through joint ventures, rather than betting our treasury on risky drill programs. The core business of the Company is thus a mixture of prospecting, exploration, joint ventures and strategic acquisitions and alliances.
