The site provided investors with a unique experience that ensured risk-free investments.

Aldaood also invited attendees and participants to visit the Kingdom's Pavilion at the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) due to be held in Sydney between Nov. 2-4 to learn more about the Kingdom's mining incentives and investment opportunities.
