The Company reported substantial working capital of $32.6 million, comprised of cash, bank deposits and investment portfolio of $22.0 million and a net receivable of $10.0 million as at September 30, 2016, not tied to any funding commitment for the iron ore project development. In addition, Labec Century Iron Ore Inc., a joint venture between the Company and WISCO International Resources Development & Investment Limited ("WISCO"), has a cash balance of $13.6 million at the quarter end.
Century Global Commodities Corporation (TSX:CNT) is building shareholder value through existing and entrepreneurial business units that meet continuing and growing demand from China, the largest market in human history.
With WISCO and Minmetals, both Global Fortune 500 Chinese strategic partners, Century owns one of the largest iron ore mineral resource bases in the world, across five projects in Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador. Joyce Lake, a direct shipping ore project in Newfoundland and Labrador, is our most advanced project. It has completed feasibility and permitting studies and can be brought to production within approximately 30 months. We are maintaining our properties in preparation for a return to higher iron ore prices.
