Australian tantalum and miner Sons of Gwalia Ltd. net profit fell 10% in the fiscal year ended June 30.
The fall was due to significant items, which cut the profit. These items included a partial writedown in the carrying value of the Leonora underground mine in Western Australia.
The writedown was partly offset by $7.7 million profit when the company sold its interest in the Kemberton silica sand project in early 2002.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
