The Thomson Resources Ltd (ASX: TMZ) share price has soared into the green during afternoon trade on Thursday.

Thomson shares are currently up 10% to 11 cents after the company provided an announcement today.

Let’s dive in further to find out why.

What’s happening with Thomson Resources today?

The Thomson Resources share price has been on the move since the company released its corporate presentation “for use at meetings in the USA”.

The report states that Thomson’s executive chairman, David Williams, is currently “in the USA meeting with a number of potential future institutional investors”.

The first round of meetings is due to take place around the Precious Metals Conference, held in Colorado this week.

Thomson then intends to hold additional meetings in the UK and Europe following this round of pitches.

Additonally, the company advised that, “given the growing interest out of the USA in the company”, it has submitted an application to list on the over-the-counter (OTC) markets in the US.

That application is “well advanced”, according to the release.

Throughout its presentation, Thomson covers its business model, key interests in silver and base metals, in addition to its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives.

One interesting takeout is Thomson’s inference to the “Software as a Service (SaaS)” label, sprouting its own term called “Mining as a Business (MaaB)”.

In any sense, investors have bought the news, and have pushed the Thomson Resources share price higher on the day.
