REVIEW OF OPERATIONS

 

Arapua Fertiliser Project

 

Studies, Test Work and Sales

During the period, the Company announced approval from the Ministry of Agriculture ('MAPA') in Brazil to register KPfértil as a remineraliser and also received trademark approval for KPfértil by the Instituto Nacional da Propriedade Industrial in Brazil.  The trademark has been officially registered for an initial ten-year period.  In addition, KPfértil was registered as organic with the Brazilian Institute of Biodynamics ('IBD').

 

The Company submitted the Environmental Report and Feasibility Study to the Agência Nacional de Mineração ('ANM'), formerly the Departamento Nacional de Produção Mineral, which has confirmed its acceptance of the Company's Plano de Aproveitamento Econômico ("the Company Plan") submitted by the Company in July 2018.  In essence, the Company Plan is a Feasibility Study wherein the Company demonstrates that the Arapua project is technically and economically feasible. 

 

In September 2018, the Company announced results from recent agronomic studies testing KPfértil on Brachiara (or Signal grass).  Highlights of the testing included:

·    As a slow release source of potassium ('K') and phosphate ('P'), KPfértil outperforms traditional Super Triple Phosphate ('TSP') fertilisers, increasing both plant growth (dry matter production) and yield (agronomic efficiency).

·    The application of KPfértil improved the pH and nutrient content of the soil including potassium, phosphate, calcium ('Ca') and magnesium ('Mg').

·    The study concluded there was a 53% increased concentration of phosphorus in the soil compared to using TSP meaning that KPfértil provided continued fertilisation for further crop cycles, highlighting its slow release and long term properties.

 

To further support the Company's marketing of KPfértil, as well as increase the number of grow trials, the Company established its own demonstration farm (Fazenda São Bartholomeu) at Arapua, where it grows coffee, sugarcane, soybean, maize and grass to demonstrate the effectiveness of KPfértil.

 

During the period, the Company announced a strategic alliance with Geociclo Biotecnologia S/A ('Geociclo'), to enable KPfértil to be marketed and sold by Geociclo's sales team, gain access to its MAPA accredited research and trial production laboratory as well as storage facilities.  The alliance resulted in Geociclo introducing the Company to new markets and generating initial sales. 

 

At the time of this arrangement, GeocicIo and Harvest committed to provide adequate funding to allow the necessary resources from each company to be committed to the arrangement.  As part of that commitment, Harvest advanced an amount of US$350,000 which was to be used towards developing sales channels, research and generally furthering the strategic alliance.  Geociclo failed to commit any funding to the arrangement.  In November 2018, Geociclo sought judicial administration.  The recovery of the amount advanced by Harvest is subject to the judicial administration and the likelihood of any recovery is unknown and considered uncertain.  As such, Harvest has elected to make a full provision for this amount as an impairment which has resulted in a one-off expense totalling A$486,257 being recorded. 

 

Despite the potential loss of this initial investment, Harvest created an opportunity from the judicial administration through acquiring the majority of the Geociclo sales team including associated experienced support staff and its existing client database.  This has allowed the Company to build upon the progress made in developing new markets for KPfértil, but without having to pay on-going commissions to Geociclo.   Harvest has no ongoing strategic relationship with, or financial commitment to, Geociclo.

 

Infrastructure Work

During the period, the Company advanced its business plan through the commissioning of an enlarged modular processing plant and associated infrastructure, which will support the existing and anticipated sales pipeline. In February 2019, the new plant was switched from diesel generators to the local electricity grid, resulting in lower and more consistent power costs.

 

Sergi, Capela & Mandacaru Projects

 

Given the scale of activity currently being undertaken at Arapua, the Company did not materially advance either of its Sergi, Capela or Mandacaru projects during the year to 30 June 2019.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AT AND FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2019

 

NOTE 1: CORPORATE INFORMATION

The financial report of Harvest Minerals Limited ("Harvest Minerals" or "the Company") and its controlled entities ("the Group") for the year ended 30 June 2019 was authorised for issue in accordance with a resolution of the Directors on 29 November 2019.

               

Harvest Minerals Limited is a company limited by shares incorporated in Australia whose shares are publicly traded on the AIM market operated by the London Stock Exchange.

 

The nature of the operations and the principal activities of the Group are described in the Directors' Report.

 

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(a)   Basis of Preparation

The financial report is a general purpose financial report, which has been prepared in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards, Australian Accounting Interpretations, other authoritative pronouncements of the Australian Accounting Standards Board and the Corporations Act 2001. The Group is a for profit entity for financial reporting purposes under Australian Accounting Standards.

 

The financial report has been prepared on an accrual basis and is based on historical costs, modified, where applicable, by the measurement at fair value of selected non-current assets, financial assets and financial liabilities. Material accounting policies adopted in preparation of this financial report are presented below and have been consistently applied unless otherwise stated.

 

The presentation currency is Australian dollars.

 

Going Concern

These financial statements have been prepared on the going concern basis, which contemplates the continuity of normal business activities and the realisation of assets and settlement of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

(b)   Parent entity information

In accordance with the Corporations Act 2001, these financial statements present the results of the Group only. Supplementary information about the parent entity is disclosed in note 27.

 

(c)    Compliance statement

The financial report complies with Australian Accounting Standards which include Australian equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards (AIFRS). Compliance with AIFRS ensures compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

 

(d)   Changes in accounting policies and disclosures

In the year ended 30 June 2019, the Directors have reviewed all of the new and revised Standards and Interpretations issued by the AASB that are relevant to the Group's operations and effective for current reporting periods beginning on or after 1 July 2018.

 

As a result of this review, the Group has initially applied AASB 9 Financial Instruments and AASB 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers from 1 July 2018.

 

Due to the transition methods chosen by the Group in applying AASB 9 and AASB15, comparative information throughout the financial statements has not been restated to reflect the requirements of the new standards. 

 

The Directors have determined that there is no material impact of AASB 9 and AASB 15 on the Group and therefore, no material change is necessary to the Group's accounting policies.

 

The Directors have also reviewed all new and revised Standards and Interpretations in issue but not yet adopted for the year ended 30 June 2019 (including AASB 16 Leases).  As a result of this review the Directors have determined that there is no material impact, of the new and revised Standards and Interpretations on the Group's business and, therefore, no material change is necessary to the Group's accounting policies.

 

As a result of the Company having advanced its Arapua project to production, the following amendments to accounting policies have been implemented:

 

Deferred Exploration and Evaluation Expenditure

During the period, the Directors determined that in respect of the Arapua project, whilst the Company was still operating under its trial mining licence, the ramp up of production pending approval of a full mining licence warranted reclassifying the costs carried forward in respect of the Arapua project of $3,980,722 at 1 July 2018 from Deferred Exploration and Evaluation Expenditure to Mine Properties.  This necessitated the Company testing this expenditure for impairment before reclassification.  The results of this test were that the expenditure was not impaired.

 

The Company continues to carry forward deferred exploration and evaluation expenditure for its other projects in accordance with the Group's accounting policy for such expenditure.

 

Mine Properties

Mine properties represent the accumulation of all exploration, evaluation and development expenditure incurred in respect of areas of interest in which mining has commenced or is in the process of commencing. When further development expenditure is incurred in respect of mine property after the commencement of production, such expenditure is carried forward as part of the mine property only when substantial future economic benefits are thereby established, otherwise such expenditure is classified as part of the cost of production.

 

Amortisation is provided on a unit of production basis which results in a write off of the cost proportional to the depletion of the proven and probable mineral reserves.

 

The net carrying value of each area of interest is reviewed regularly and to the extent to which this value exceeds its recoverable amount, the excess is either fully provided against or written off in the financial year in which this is determined.

 

The Group provides for environmental restoration and rehabilitation at site which includes any costs to dismantle and remove certain items of plant and equipment. The cost of an item includes the initial estimate of the costs of dismantling and removing the item and restoring the site on which it is located, the obligation for which an entity incurs when an item is acquired or as a consequence of having used the item during that period. This asset is depreciated on the basis of the current estimate of the useful life of the asset. In accordance with AASB 137 Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets the Group is also required to recognise as a provision the best estimate of the present value of expenditure required to settle this obligation. The present value of estimated future cash flows is measured using a current market discount rate.

 

Stripping costs

Costs associated with material stripping activity, which is the process of removing mine waste materials to gain access to the mineral deposits underneath, during the production phase of surface mining are accounted for as either inventory or a non-current asset (non-current asset is also referred to as a 'stripping activity asset').

 

To the extent that the benefit from the stripping activity is realised in the form of inventory produced, the Group accounts for the costs of that stripping activity in accordance with the principles of AASB 102 Inventories. To the extent the benefit is improved access to ore, the Group recognises these costs as a non-current asset provided that:

·      it is probable that the future economic benefit (improved access to the ore body) associated with the stripping activity will flow to the Group;

·      the Group can identify the component of the ore body for which access has been improved; and

·      the costs relating to the stripping activity associated with that component can be measured reliably.

 

Stripping activity assets are initially measured at cost, being the accumulation of costs directly incurred to perform the stripping activity that improves access to the identified component of ore plus an allocation of directly attributable overhead costs. In addition, stripping activity assets are accounted for as an addition to, or as an enhancement to, an existing asset.

 

Accordingly, the nature of the existing asset determines:

·      whether the Group classifies the stripping activity asset as tangible or intangible; and

·      the basis on which the stripping activity asset is measured subsequent to initial recognition

 

In circumstances where the costs of the stripping activity asset and the inventory produced are not separately identifiable, the Group allocates the production stripping costs between the inventory produced and the stripping activity asset by using an allocation basis that is based on volume of waste extracted compared with expected volume, for a given volume of ore production.

 

Revenue

Revenue arises mainly from the sale of fertiliser. The Group generates revenue in Brazil. To determine whether to recognise revenue, the Group follows a 5-step process:

1.     Identifying the contract with a customer

2.     Identifying the performance obligations

3.     Determining the transaction price

4.     Allocating the transaction price to the performance obligations

5.     Recognising revenue when/as performance obligation(s) are satisfied.

 

The revenue and profits recognised in any period are based on the delivery of performance obligations and an assessment of when control is transferred to the customer.

 

In determining the amount of revenue and profits to record, and related balance sheet items (such as contract fulfilment assets, capitalisation of costs to obtain a contract, trade receivables, accrued income and deferred income) to recognise in the period, management is required to form a number of key judgements and assumptions. This includes an assessment of the costs the Group incurs to deliver the contractual commitments and whether such costs should be expensed as incurred or capitalised.

Revenue is recognised either when the performance obligation in the contract has been performed, so 'point in time' recognition or 'over time' as control of the performance obligation is transferred to the customer.

 

For contracts with multiple components to be delivered such as fertiliser, management applies judgement to consider whether those promised goods and services are (i) distinct - to be accounted for as separate performance obligations; (ii) not distinct - to be combined with other promised goods or services until a bundle is identified that is distinct or (iii) part of a series of distinct goods and services that are substantially the same and have the same pattern of transfer to the customer.

 

Transaction price

At contract inception the total transaction price is estimated, being the amount to which the Group expects to be entitled and has rights to under the present contract. The transaction price does not include estimates of consideration resulting from change orders for additional goods and services unless these are agreed. Once the total transaction price is determined, the Group allocates this to the identified performance obligations in proportion to their relative stand-alone selling prices and recognises revenue when (or as) those performance obligations are satisfied.

 

For each performance obligation, the Group determines if revenue will be recognised over time or at a point in time. Where the Group recognises revenue over time for long term contracts, this is in general due to the Group performing and the customer simultaneously receiving and consuming the benefits provided over the life of the contract.

 

For each performance obligation to be recognised over time, the Group applies a revenue recognition method that faithfully depicts the Group's performance in transferring control of the goods or services to the customer. This decision requires assessment of the real nature of the goods or services that the Group has promised to transfer to the customer. The Group applies the relevant output or input method consistently to similar performance obligations in other contracts.

 

When using the output method the Group recognises revenue on the basis of direct measurements of the value to the customer of the goods and services transferred to date relative to the remaining goods and services under the contract. Where the output method is used, in particular for long term service contracts where the series guidance is applied, the Group often uses a method of time elapsed which requires minimal estimation. Certain long term contracts use output methods based upon estimation of number of users, level of service activity or fees collected.

 

If performance obligations in a contract do not meet the over time criteria, the Group recognises revenue at a point in time. This may be at the point of physical delivery of goods and acceptance by a customer or when the customer obtains control of an asset or service in a contract with customer-specified acceptance criteria.

 

Disaggregation of revenue

The Group disaggregates revenue from contracts with customers by contract type, which includes only fertiliser as management believes this best depicts how the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of the Group's revenue and cash flows.

 

 

 

Performance obligations

Performance obligations categorised within this revenue type include the debtor taking ownership of the fertiliser product.

 

Inventories

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value.

 

Costs incurred in bringing each product to its present location and condition is accounted for as follows:

·      Raw materials - purchase cost; and

·      Finished goods - cost of direct materials and labour and an appropriate proportion of variable and fixed overheads based on normal operating capacity.

 

Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less estimated costs of completion and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale.

 

(e)   Basis of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements comprise the financial statements of Harvest Minerals Limited and its subsidiaries as at 30 June each year ('the Company').

 

Subsidiaries are all those entities over which the Company has control. The Company controls an entity when the Company is exposed to, or has rights to, variable returns from its involvement with the entity and has the ability to affect those returns through its power to direct the activities of the entity.

 

The financial statements of the subsidiaries are prepared for the same reporting period as the parent Company, using consistent accounting policies. 

 

In preparing the consolidated financial statements, all intercompany balances and transactions, income and expenses and profit and losses resulting from intra-company transactions have been eliminated in full. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date on which control is obtained by the Company and cease to be consolidated from the date on which control is transferred out of the Company.

 

The acquisition of subsidiaries is accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting. The acquisition method of accounting involves recognising at acquisition date, separately from goodwill, the identifiable assets acquired, the liabilities assumed and any non-controlling interest in the acquiree. The identifiable assets acquired and the liabilities assumed are measured at their acquisition date fair values.

 

The difference between the above items and the fair value of the consideration (including the fair value of any pre-existing investment in the acquiree) is goodwill or a discount on acquisition.

 

A change in the ownership interest of a subsidiary that does not result in a loss of control, is accounted for as an equity transaction.

 

(f)    Foreign Currency Translation

(i)  Functional and presentation currency

Items included in the financial statements of each of the Company's controlled entities are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates ('the functional currency').  The functional and presentation currency of Harvest Minerals Limited is Australian dollars. The functional currency of the overseas subsidiaries is Brazilian Reals.

 

(ii) Transactions and balances

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions.  Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation at year end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income.

 

(iii) Group entities

The results and financial position of all the Company's controlled entities (none of which has the currency of a hyperinflationary economy) that have a functional currency different from the presentation currency are translated into the presentation currency as follows:

·      assets and liabilities for each statement of financial position presented are translated at the closing rate at the date of that statement of financial position;

·      income and expenses for each statement of comprehensive income are translated at average exchange rates (unless this is not a reasonable approximation of the rates prevailing on the transaction dates, in which case income and expenses are translated at the dates of the transactions); and

·      all resulting exchange differences are recognised as a separate component of equity.

 

On consolidation, exchange differences arising from the translation of any net investment in foreign entities are taken to foreign currency translation reserve. 

 

When a foreign operation is sold or any borrowings forming part of the net investment are repaid, a proportionate share of such exchange differences are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income, as part of the gain or loss on sale where applicable.

 

(g)   Plant and Equipment

Each class of plant and equipment is carried at cost less, where applicable, any accumulated depreciation and impairment losses.

 

Subsequent costs are included in the asset's carrying amount or recognised as a separate asset, as appropriate, only when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item will flow to the Group and the cost of the item can be measured reliably. Repairs and maintenance expenditure is charged to the statement of comprehensive income during the financial period in which it is incurred.

 

Depreciation

The depreciable amount of all fixed assets is depreciated on a straight line basis over their useful lives to the Group commencing from the time the asset is held ready for use.

The depreciation rates used for each class of depreciable assets are:

 

Class of Fixed Asset                              Depreciation Rate

Plant and equipment                             33% - 50%

Furniture, Fixtures and Fittings                         10%

Computer and software                                     20%

 

The assets' residual values and useful lives are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at each statement of financial position date.

 

Derecognition

Additions of plant and equipment are derecognised upon disposal or when no further future economic benefits are expected from their use or disposal.

 

Gains and losses on disposals are determined by comparing proceeds with the carrying amount.  These gains and losses are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income. 

 

(h)   Impairment of non-financial assets

The Group assesses at each reporting date whether there is an indication that an asset may be impaired. If any such indication exists, or when annual impairment testing for an asset is required, the Group makes an estimate of the asset's recoverable amount. An asset's recoverable amount is the higher of its fair value less costs to sell and its value in use and is determined for an individual asset, unless the asset does not generate cash inflows that are largely independent of those from other assets of the Group and the asset's value in use cannot be estimated to be close to its fair value. In such cases the asset is tested for impairment as part of the cash generating unit to which it belongs. When the carrying amount of an asset or cash-generating unit exceeds its recoverable amount, the asset or cash-generating unit is considered impaired and is written down to its recoverable amount.

 

In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset. Impairment losses relating to continuing operations are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income.

 

An assessment is also made at each reporting date as to whether there is any indication that previously recognised impairment losses may no longer exist or may have decreased. If such indication exists, the recoverable amount is estimated. A previously recognised impairment loss is reversed only if there has been a change in the estimates used to determine the asset's recoverable amount since the last impairment loss was recognised. If that is the case the carrying amount of the asset is increased to its recoverable amount. That increased amount cannot exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined, net of depreciation, had no impairment loss been recognised for the asset in prior years. Such reversal is recognised in profit or loss.

 

After such a reversal the depreciation charge is adjusted in future periods to allocate the asset's revised carrying amount, less any residual value, on a systematic basis over its remaining useful life.

 

(i)    Deferred exploration and evaluation expenditure

Exploration and evaluation expenditure incurred by or on behalf of the Group is accumulated separately for each area of interest.  Such expenditure comprises net direct costs and an appropriate portion of related overhead expenditure but does not include general overheads or administrative expenditure not having a specific nexus with a particular area of interest.

 

Each area of interest is limited to a size related to a known or probable mineral resource capable of supporting a mining operation. Exploration and evaluation expenditure for each area of interest is carried forward as an asset provided that one of the following conditions is met:

·      such costs are expected to be recouped through successful development and exploitation of the area of interest or, alternatively, by its sale; or

·      exploration and evaluation activities in the area of interest have not yet reached a stage which permits a reasonable assessment of the existence or otherwise of economically recoverable reserves, and active and significant operations in relation to the area are continuing.

 

Expenditure which fails to meet the conditions outlined above is written off. Furthermore, the directors regularly review the carrying value of exploration and evaluation expenditure and make write downs if the values are not expected to be recoverable.

 

Identifiable exploration assets acquired are recognised as assets at their cost of acquisition, as determined by the requirements of AASB 6 Exploration for and Evaluation of Mineral Resources. Exploration assets acquired are reassessed on a regular basis and these costs are carried forward provided that at least one of the conditions referred to in AASB 6 is met.

 

Exploration and evaluation expenditure incurred subsequent to acquisition in respect of an exploration asset acquired is accounted for in accordance with the policy outlined above for exploration expenditure incurred by or on behalf of the entity.

 

Acquired exploration assets are not written down below acquisition cost until such time as the acquisition cost is not expected to be recovered.

 

When an area of interest is abandoned, any expenditure carried forward in respect of that area is written off.

 

Expenditure is not carried forward in respect of any area of interest/mineral resource unless the Group's rights of tenure to that area of interest are current.

 

Revenue from trial mining activities is offset against carried forward exploration and evaluation expenditure.

 

(j)    Trade and Other Receivables

Trade receivables are measured on initial recognition at fair value and are subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest rate method, less any allowance for impairment.

 

AASB 9's impairment requirements use more forward-looking information to recognise expected credit losses. The Group considers a broader range of information when assessing credit risk and measuring expected credit losses, including past events, current conditions, reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the expected collectability of the future cash flows of the instrument.

 

(k)   Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalent in the statement of financial position include cash on hand, deposits held at call with banks and other short term highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less. Bank overdrafts are shown as current liabilities in the statement of financial position. For the purpose of the statement of cash flows, cash and cash equivalents consist of cash and cash equivalents as described above and bank overdrafts.

 

(l)    Provisions

Provisions are recognised when the Group has a present obligation (legal or constructive) as a result of a past event, it is probable that an outflow of resources embodying economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation and a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation.

 

Where the Group expects some or all of a provision to be reimbursed, for example under an insurance contract, the reimbursement is recognised as a separate asset but only when the reimbursement is virtually certain.  The expense relating to any provision is presented in the statement of comprehensive income net of any reimbursement.

 

If the effect of the time value of money is material, provisions are determined by discounting the expected future cash flows at a pre-tax rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money, and where appropriate, the risks specific to the liability.

 

Where discounting is used, the increase in the provision due to the passage of time is recognised as a finance cost.

 

(m)  Trade and other payables

Liabilities for trade creditors and other amounts are measured at amortised cost, which is the fair value of the consideration to be paid in the future for goods and services received that are unpaid, whether or not billed to the Group.

 

(n)   Income Tax

Deferred income tax is provided for on all temporary differences at balance date between the tax base of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts for financial reporting purposes.

 

No deferred income tax will be recognised from the initial recognition of goodwill or of an asset or liability, excluding a business combination, where there is no effect on accounting or taxable profit or loss.

 

No deferred income tax will be recognised in respect of temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries if the timing of the reversal of the temporary difference can be controlled and it is probable that the temporary differences will not reverse in the near future.

 

Deferred tax is calculated at the tax rates that are expected to apply to the period when the asset is realised or liability is settled.  Deferred tax is charged or credited in the statement of comprehensive income except where it relates to items that may be charged or credited directly to equity, in which case the deferred tax is adjusted directly against equity.

Deferred income tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences, carry forward of unused tax assets and unused tax losses to the extent that it is probable that future tax profits will be available against which deductible temporary differences can be utilised.

 

The amount of benefits brought to account or which may be realised in the future is based on tax rates (and tax laws) that have been enacted or substantially enacted at the balance date and the anticipation that the Group will derive sufficient future assessable income to enable the benefit to be realised and comply with the conditions of deductibility imposed by the law.  The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at each balance date and only recognised to the extent that sufficient future assessable income is expected to be obtained.

 

Income taxes relating to items recognised directly in equity are recognised in equity and not in the statement of comprehensive income.

 

Deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities are offset only if a legally enforceable right exists to set off current tax assets against current tax liabilities and the deferred tax assets and liabilities relate to the same taxable entity and the same taxation authority.

 

(o)   Issued capital

Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Incremental costs directly attributable to the issue of new shares or options are shown in equity as a deduction, net of tax, from the proceeds.

 

 

 

 

(p)   Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the profit / loss attributable to equity holders of the Company, excluding any costs of servicing equity other than dividends, by the weighted average number of ordinary shares, adjusted for any bonus elements.

 

Diluted earnings per share

Diluted earnings per share is calculated as profit / loss attributable to members of the Company, adjusted for:

·      costs of servicing equity (other than dividends);

·      the after tax effect of dividends and interest associated with dilutive potential ordinary shares that have been recognised as expenses; and

·      other non-discretionary changes in revenues or expenses during the period that would result from the dilution of potential ordinary shares;

·      divided by the weighted average number of ordinary shares and dilutive potential ordinary shares, adjusted for any bonus elements.

 

(q)   Goods and services tax

Revenues, expenses and assets are recognised net of the amount of GST/sales tax, except where the amount of GST/sales tax incurred is not recoverable from the relevant Tax Authority. In these circumstances, the GST/sales tax is recognised as part of the cost of acquisition of the asset or as part of an item of the expense. Receivables and payables in the statement of financial position are shown inclusive of GST/sales tax.

 

The net amount of GST/sales tax recoverable from, or payable to, the Tax Authority is included as part of receivables or payables in the statement of financial position.

 

Cash flows are presented in the statement of cash flows on a gross basis, except for the GST component of investing and financing activities, which is receivable from or payable to the ATO, being disclosed as operating cash flows.

 

(r)    Share based payment transactions

The Group provides benefits to individuals acting as, and providing services similar to employees (including Directors) of the Group in the form of share based payment transactions, whereby individuals render services in exchange for shares or rights over shares ('equity settled transactions').

 

There is currently an Employee Share Option Scheme (ESOS) in place, which provides benefits to Directors and individuals providing services similar to those provided by an employee.

 

The cost of these equity settled transactions with employees is measured by reference to the fair value at the date at which they are granted. The fair value is determined by using an option pricing formula taking into account the terms and conditions upon which the instruments were granted, as discussed in note 24.

 

In valuing equity settled transactions, no account is taken of any performance conditions, other than conditions linked to the price of the shares of Harvest Minerals ('market conditions').  The cost of the equity settled transactions is recognised, together with a corresponding increase in equity, over the period in which the performance conditions are fulfilled, ending on the date on which the relevant employees become fully entitled to the award ('vesting date').

 

The cumulative expense recognised for equity settled transactions at each reporting date until vesting date reflects

(i)    the extent to which the vesting period has expired and

(ii)   the number of awards that, in the opinion of the Directors of the Company, will ultimately vest. This opinion is formed based on the best available information at balance date. No adjustment is made for the likelihood of the market performance conditions being met as the effect of these conditions is included in the determination of fair value at grant date. The statement of comprehensive income charge or credit for a period represents the movement in cumulative expense recognised at the beginning and end of the period.

 

No expense is recognised for awards that do not ultimately vest, except for awards where vesting is conditional upon a market condition.

 

Where the terms of an equity settled award are modified, as a minimum an expense is recognised as if the terms had not been modified. In addition, an expense is recognised for any increase in the value of the transaction as a result of the modification, as measured at the date of the modification.

 

Where an equity settled award is cancelled, it is treated as if it had vested on the date of the cancellation, and any expense not yet recognised for the award is recognised immediately. However, if a new award is substituted for the cancelled award, and designated as a replacement award on the date that it is granted, the cancelled and new awards are treated as if they were a modification of the original award, as described in the previous paragraph.

 

The cost of equity-settled transactions with non-employees is measured by reference to the fair value of goods and services received unless this cannot be measured reliably, in which case the cost is measured by reference to the fair value of the equity instruments granted. The dilutive effect, if any, of outstanding options is reflected in the computation of loss per share (see note 21).

 

(s)    Comparative figures

When required by Accounting Standards, comparative figures have been adjusted to conform to changes in presentation for the current financial year.

 

(t)    Operating segments

Operating segments are presented using the 'management approach', where the information presented is on the same basis as the internal reports provided to the Chief Operating Decision Makers ('CODM'). The CODM is responsible for the allocation of resources to operating segments and assessing their performance.

 

(u)   Fair value measurement

When an asset or liability, financial or non-financial, is measured at fair value for recognition or disclosure purposes, the fair value is based on the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date; and assumes that the transaction will take place either in the principle market; or in the absence of a principal market, in the most advantageous market.

 

Fair value is measured using the assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability, assuming they act in their economic best interest. For non-financial assets, the fair value measurement is based on its highest and best use. Valuation techniques that are appropriate in the circumstances and for which sufficient data are available to measure fair value, are used, maximising the use of relevant observable inputs and minimising the use of unobservable inputs.

 

Assets and liabilities measured at fair value are classified, into three levels, using a fair value hierarchy that reflects the significance of the inputs used in making the measurements. Classifications are reviewed each reporting date and transfers between levels are determined based on a reassessment of the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

For recurring and non-recurring fair value measurements, external valuers may be used when internal expertise is either not available or when the valuation is deemed to be significant. External valuers are selected based on market knowledge and reputation. Where there is a significant change in fair value of an asset or liability from one period to another, an analysis is undertaken, which includes a verification of the major inputs applied in the latest valuation and a comparison, where applicable, with external sources of data.

 

(v)   Critical accounting estimates and judgements

Estimates and judgements are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that may have a financial impact on the entity and that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.

 

The Group makes estimates and assumptions concerning the future. The resulting accounting estimates will, by definition, seldom equal the related actual results. The estimates and assumptions that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year are discussed below.

 

Capitalised exploration and evaluation expenditure

The future recoverability of capitalised exploration and evaluation expenditure is dependent on a number of factors, including whether the Group decides to exploit the related lease itself or, if not, whether it successfully recovers the related exploration and evaluation asset through sale.

 

Factors which could impact the future recoverability include the level of proved, probable and inferred mineral resources, future technological changes which could impact the cost of mining, future legal changes (including changes to environmental restoration obligations) and changes to commodity prices and exchange rules.

 

To the extent that capitalised exploration and evaluation expenditure is determined not to be recoverable in the future, this will reduce profits and net assets in the period in which this determination is made.

 

In addition, exploration and evaluation expenditure is capitalised if activities in the area of interest have not yet reached a stage which permits a reasonable assessment of the existence or otherwise of economically recoverable reserves.  To the extent that it is determined in the future that this capitalised expenditure should be written off, this will reduce profits and net assets in the period in which this determination is made.

 

Share based payment transactions

The Group measures the cost of equity settled transactions with employees by reference to the fair value of the equity instruments at the date at which they are granted. The fair value is determined by using the Black Scholes formula taking into account the terms and conditions upon which the instruments were granted, as discussed in note 24.

 

Functional currency translation reserve

Under Accounting Standards, each entity within the Group is required to determine its functional currency, which is the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates. Management considers the Brazilian subsidiaries to be foreign operations with Brazilian Reals as the functional currency. In arriving at this determination, management has given priority to the currency that influences the labour, materials and other costs of exploration activities as they consider this to be a primary indicator of the functional currency.

 

NOTE 2:  SEGMENT INFORMATION

For management purposes, the Group is organised into one main operating segment, which involves mining exploration and trial mining and processing. All of the Group's activities are interrelated, and discrete financial information is reported to the Board (Chief Operating Decision Makers) as a single segment. No revenue is derived from a single external customer.

 

Accordingly, all significant operating decisions are based upon analysis of the Group as one segment. The financial results from this segment are equivalent to the financial statements of the Group as a whole.  Revenue earned by the Group is generated in Brazil and all of the Group's non-current assets reside in Brazil.

These obligations have arisen as a result of certain acquisitions that were undertaken in prior years as summarised below.

 

Capela Potash Project

Harvest acquired a 51% interest in the Capella Potash project in the Sergipe State, Brazil in 2015 as announced on 28 August 2014. The total consideration was payable over several years subject to certain conditions.  The remaining elements of the consideration are as follows:

·      The issue of further shares in the Company to the value of $400,000, not before 31 December 2014, on the identification of 10 million tonnes of carnallite or sylvite with a minimum grade of 10% KCI;

·      The issue of further shares in the Company to the value of $800,000, not before 31 July 2015, on the identification of a JORC inferred reserve with the minimum of 25 million tonnes with a minimum grade of more than 10% of KCI;

·      The issue of further shares in the Company to the value of $1,000,000, not before 31 December 2015, if the Company completes a scoping study, feasibility study or another study that confirms the economic feasibility under the JORC Code;

·      Drill two (2) holes for a total of 700m.

 

The elements of the consideration noted above have not been fulfilled as at 30 June 2019 have therefore been recorded as commitments above.

 

   Sergi Potash Project

Harvest acquired a 100% interest in the Sergi Potash Project in the Sergipe State, Brazil in 2015 as announced on 20 April 2015.  The total consideration was payable over several years subject to certain conditions.  The remaining elements of the consideration are as follows:

·      Annual payments of $100,000 due on or before 31 December each year and ending in 2021;

·      On achieving minimum horizon of 10 meters of carnallite or sylvite with a minimum grade of 10%, payment of 6,000,000 fully paid ordinary shares in the Company;

·      On achieving a JORC (2012) inferred reserve with the minimum of 25 million tonnes with a minimum grade of more than 10% of KCl, payment of 6,000,000 fully paid ordinary shares in the Company;

·      On achieving a successful scope or feasibility study that confirms the economic feasibility under the JORC rules, payment of 6,000,000 post-consolidation fully paid ordinary shares in the Company; and

·      On commencing of commercial production, payment of $6,000,000.

               

The elements of the consideration noted above which have not been fulfilled as at 30 June 2019, have therefore been recorded as commitments above.

 

Arapua Fertilizer Project

Harvest acquired a 100% interest in the Arapua Fertilizer Project in the State of Minas Gerais in Brazil in 2014. The terms of the acquisition included:

·      a total payment of US$1,000,000 at the commencement of commercial production; and

·      a Net Smelter Return Royalty to the vendors of 2%.

 

Commercial production had not commenced as at 30 June 2019 and has therefore this amount has been recorded as a commitment above. The 2% Net Smelter Return Royalty has not been recorded as a commitment as it is difficult to quantify.

 

Mandacaru Phosphate Project

As announced on the on 21 December 2015, Harvest acquired a 100% interest in the Mandacaru Phosphate Project in the Ceara State, Brazil. The terms of the acquisition include a Net Smelter Return Royalty to the vendors of 2%, capped at an aggregate amount of US$1,000,000. The 2% Net Smelter Return Royalty has not been recorded as a commitment as it is difficult to quantify.

 

If the Group decides to relinquish and/or does not meet the obligations, assets recognised in the Statement of Financial Position may require review to determine the appropriateness of carrying values. The sale, transfers or farm-out of exploration rights to third parties will reduce or extinguish the above obligations.

There is no impact from 600,000 warrants and 2,755,125 options outstanding at 30 June 2019 (2018: 600,000 warrants and 2,755,125 options) on the loss per share calculation because they are considered anti-dilutive. These options could potentially dilute basic EPS in the future. There have been no transactions involving ordinary shares or potential ordinary shares that would significantly change the number of ordinary shares or potential ordinary shares outstanding between the reporting date and the date of completion of these financial statements.

 

NOTE 22: FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT

Exposure to interest rate, liquidity and credit risk arises in the normal course of the Group's business.  The Group does not hold or issue derivative financial instruments. 

 

The Group uses different methods as discussed below to manage risks that arise from these financial instruments. The objective is to support the delivery of the financial targets while protecting future financial security.

 

(a)  Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Group will encounter difficulty in meeting obligations associated with financial liabilities.

 

The Group manages liquidity risk by maintaining sufficient cash facilities to meet the operating requirements of the business and investing excess funds in highly liquid short-term investments. The responsibility for liquidity risk management rests with the Board of Directors.

 

Alternatives for sourcing the Group's future capital needs include the cash position and the issue of equity instruments. These alternatives are evaluated to determine the optimal mix of capital resources for our capital needs. We expect that, absent a material adverse change in a combination of our sources of liquidity, present levels of liquidity along with future capital raising will be adequate to meet our expected capital needs.

 

Maturity analysis for financial liabilities

Financial liabilities of the Group comprise trade and other payables. As at 30 June 2019 and 30 June 2018 all financial liabilities are contractually maturing within 60 days.

 

(b) Foreign currency exchange rate risk

The Company holds cash balances in foreign currencies (Great British Pounds ('GBP') and United States Dollars ('USD')). The carrying amounts of the Group's foreign currency denominated cash balances at 30 June 2019 are GBP 5,168,520 (A$9,359,836) and USD 9,260 (A$13,200).

 

Foreign currency sensitivity analysis

A 10% increase and decrease in the GBP and USD against the Australian dollar would lead to a $937,304 increase / decrease in results (2018: $152,878 increase / decrease in results).

 

(c) Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk arises from the possibility that changes in interest rates will affect future cash flows or the fair value of financial instruments.

 

The Group's exposure to market risk for changes to interest rate risk relates primarily to its earnings on cash and term deposits. The Group manages the risk by investing in short term deposits.

A sensitivity of 100 basis points has been used as this is considered reasonable given the current level of both short term and long-term Australian Dollar interest rates. The change in basis points is derived from a review of historical movements and management's judgement of future trends. The analysis was performed on the same basis in 2018.

 

(d)      Credit risk exposures

Credit risk represents the risk that the counterparty to the financial instrument will fail to discharge an obligation and cause the Group to incur a financial loss. The Group's maximum credit exposure is the carrying amounts on the statement of financial position. The Group holds financial instruments with credit worthy third parties. 

 

At 30 June 2019, the Group held cash at bank.  These were held with financial institutions with a rating from Standard & Poors of -AA or above (long term).

 

(e)      Fair value of financial instruments

The carrying amounts of financial instruments approximate their fair values.

 

(f)       Capital management

The Board's policy is to maintain a strong capital base so as to maintain investor, creditor and market confidence and to sustain future development of the business. There were no changes in the Group's approach to capital management during the year. The Group is not subject to externally imposed capital requirements.

Notes

Harvest Minerals Limited (HMI.L) is an AIM-quoted low-cost and high margin Brazilian remineraliser producer, located in the heart of the largest and fastest growing fertilizer market in Brazil.

 

Our product, KPFértil, is a registered and approved organic multi-nutrient direct application fertiliser. It contains many of the essential nutrients and minerals required by plants and, unlike most fertilisers, it does not require any complex processing or chemically alteration, instead it can be applied directly to crops.

 

KPFértil is produced at the wholly owned Arapua project, that consists of a fully permitted mine, production and storage facilities able to produce and deliver KPFértil to customers. Known mineralisation at the Project is expected to support 100+ years' production at 450Ktpa.

 

Our focus now remains on growing our business and we have the dedicated in-country sales and marketing team with the skills, experience and contacts to sell KPFértil into the potential multi-Mtpa market on the doorstep of the Project.
