Precious metals miner Scotgold Resources has reported lower losses for the first six months of its financial year.

Earlier this week, Scotgold, led by chief executive Richard Gray, hailed a “significant” boost to its Cononish plans on the back of lower running costs and higher prices for the precious metal.
Changes to the design of a storage facility, along with higher assumed gold prices, meant that its peak funding requirement for the project has reduced to £7.4 million, down from previous forecasts of £18.5m.
Scotgold also said today it continues to develop plans for its licence in Portugal.
