Investment Considerations
  • In May 2024, GEMXX announced its partnership with Latin Energy Partners Inc. to jointly drill four test oil and gas wells in a promising geological formation in Paraguay.
  • Earlier that month, the company announced its pivot to investing in oil and gas exploration projects, while maintaining its previous gemstone mining and jewelry manufacturing operations.
  • GEMXX in April 2024 named Richard Clowater, formerly the company’s President, as its new CEO.

GEMXX Corp.

Projects and Operations

Energy Investments

GEMXX is strategically expanding its business model to include a significant partnership with Latin Energy Partners Inc. LEP is actively exploring two basins in Latin America, with estimates indicating a potential for over 1 billion barrels of recoverable oil in each basin.

The two companies have defined terms to jointly drill four test wells in a promising geological formation in the Republic of Paraguay. GEMXX’s investment secures 40% of production from the first four wells and 40% of future production from nearly 25,000 acres surrounding the initial test well heads.

Seismic and geological data assessments show promising indicators for hydrocarbon deposits. Initial exploration of the two target basins confirmed several kilometers of sedimentary fill with strong potential for accommodating successful, conventional oil and gas petroleum systems.

Latin America remains largely uncharted in hydrocarbon exploration, yet recent studies suggest considerable untapped potential. GEMXX believes Latin America is one of the last underdeveloped energy opportunities on Earth, quickly emerging due to demand and deregulation.

Market Opportunity

A 2023 report from ReportLinker, an award-winning market research company, estimated the value of the global oil and gas market that year at $7.33 trillion and projected it would grow to $8.67 trillion by 2027, representing a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period.

The report identified the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, with its resulting economic sanctions and supply chain disruptions, as a constraint on market expansion that will hold market growth below its natural level. Oil price volatility is also likely to have a negative impact on market growth, according to the report. In May 2024, the market price of crude oil was approximately $78 per barrel.

The World Gold Council, the industry association for the world’s gold producers, estimated in 2023 the physical financial gold market, which is made up of bars, coins, gold ETFs and central bank reserves, is worth nearly $5 trillion. The council reports that gold mine production adds approximately 3,500 tons of the precious metal to the world’s supply annually, equivalent to about 2% growth.

This historical scarcity and relatively slow production of new supply, as compared to other commodities, is a primary reason gold has retained its value for millennia, according to the council. In May 2024, the market price of gold was approximately $2,340 per ounce.
