Kaizen Discovery (TSX-V: KZD) is a Canadian technology-focused, mineral exploration company that was formed in late 2013. With a collaboration agreement with ITOCHU of Japan and access to HPX TechCo’s proprietary geophysical technology, Kaizen’s long-term growth strategy is to work with Japanese partners to identify, explore and develop high-quality mineral projects that have the potential to produce and deliver minerals to Japan’s industrial sector. SNNLive spoke with Matthew Hornor, President and CEO of Kaizen Discovery at the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium 2014 in Vancouver, BC.
“Kaizen Discovery came into existence last December through an RTO takeover and what our model really is, is to acquire companies in this distressed mining environment, which there are many, and bring them forward with Japanese financing,” begins Mr. Hornor. He continues, “If you think about the little island nation of Japan consuming three times the amount of natural resources as the United States on a per capita basis, that’s what drives the demand. Our partner, ITOCHU Corporation is a trading company that sources these natural resource metals and feed them into the Japanese industrial complex.”
Mr. Hornor explains, “So long as our Japanese financing partners are behind a given acquisition, we’ll look at early stage to late stage, we’ll acquire production or early stage development, we’re not beholden to one or the other.” He adds, “We have a very gifted and skilled group of geologists who get in and not only look at projects before we acquire them, model whether they’re a good or bad idea.” For more information, check out their website at www.kaizendiscovery.com
