Company info

Leed Resources plc (“Leed”) is an investing company, focused on opportunities in the natural resources sector, including oil and gas, mining and building materials. Leed has one main investment which is Battalion International Ltd (High Manor Pty Ltd) and a legacy project, Manas Coal.

Battalion International Ltd

Battalion International Limited ("Battalion") is a BVI company which is the controlling shareholder of High Mannor Pty Limited ("HM") and trades under the brand name "Cultural Limestone". Cultural Limestone is the Second largest manufacturer and layer of reconstituted limestone blocks and wall panels in Western Australia. Once quarried the limestone is then crushed and processed into these blocks and more recently panels which are used as retaining walls in the construction industry. Cultural Limestone has spent 3 years developing their wall panels and have received strong market endorsements from its key customers. Barriers to entry do exist in the panel market and will therefore reduce risk of other parties being able to develop their own wall panels. Cultural Limestone has secured patents to protect their own panels from being duplicated.

Leed currently holds a secured convertible Loan Note in Battalion. The note is convertible into equity which if converted would result in Leed holding up to 18.4% of Battalion, equating to an equity interest of 14% of HM.
