LGC Capital (Lenigas Cuba) – The Sherriff of AIM reaches across the pond to become the temporary Mountie of the TSX.V

Published 78 days ago

It is just over a year since my pal David Lenigas, listed Leni Gas Cuba (LGC) on ISDX. It has subsequently undertaken a reverse takeoverof Knowlton Capital on 12 July 2016 to obtain a listing on the Toronto TSX Venture Exchange. Following the recent publication of its results, I decided to have a butchers. To be fair to Lenigas, he has made one cracking investment. But the overall picture is ...mixed. 

Buy Union Jack Oil - c40% short term upside

Published 105 days ago

The world still hates small oil stocks. We are not sure when that will change but given how many of the mid caps are collapsing either entirely (Afren) or surviving only via schemes that see shareholders almost wiped out ( XCite, Gulfsands, Gulf Keystone, IGAS, LGO, etc, etc) we feel we could be at a Burmah Castrol moment. Do a google search if you are too young to understand the reference!

Your nominations needed NOW for the Australian team at the new Olympic Event of share ramping?

Published 168 days ago

In an article earlier today I suggested that my good friend David Lenigas was a slam dunk to win the individual gold medal in the new Olympic Sport of share ramping. But I was concerned that the recent poor form of long term stalwarts  of the Roos, such as Pirate Pete Landau and Andy Carroll, means that the Auzzie team in the freestyle share ramping relay event was in deep trouble. Indeed...

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Good journalism is not insider dealing & how to make money when we win the Brexit vote

Published 222 days ago

I start with a look at how in stockmarket terms insanity begets insanity. No this is not how David Lenigas thinks of me and my mother but our case study here is Highland Natural Resources (HNR). I think explain why good journalism, that is to say breaking stories that are price sensitive, is not breaking the law. Finally as the polls move our way I ponder how you make money when team Brexit wins the EU referendum. One reason why I think we might win is how Labour voters are shifting and that is covered in a podcast on my own website HERE.

LGO Results - a landmark in confetti issuing horseshit

Published 222 days ago

Announcing your annual results at 1.38 PM ensures that some folks will miss the horrors you reveal. London's most useless Nomad, Mr Roland "fatty" Cornish will just be starting course two of four and so will not be back at his desk until the next trading day. So there is some point in sneaking out the bad news in the middle of the day. And that brings me to the trainwreck with Neil Ritson at the wheel, but David Lenigas driving from the back seat, LGO Energy (LGO). 

F40 MoneySwap and PCG Entertainment – a look back in history at the former chairman and his brother. It’s a game of two halves….

Picking up on Cynical Bear’s footballing analogy and having previously wondered whether there might be a skeleton in the cupboard of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty MoneySwap (SWAP) in the light of last week’s ‘fessing up by fellow Filthy Forty PCG Entertainment (PCGE), further digging reveals a festival of Red Flags. Look no further than the previous stamping ground of MoneySwap and PCG Entertainment (PCGE) former chairman, Mr Kung Min Lin, at Power Capital Global Limited (PCGB), which started life as Sportswinbet (SWB) in 2005.

On Friday - ahead of the bank holiday weekend - at no-one-is-watching o’clock (natch) ISDX-listed Leni Gas Cuba (CUBA) updated twice on its proposed take-over by Canadian TSX-V listed Knowlton Capital Inc. There is much to mull over there, but we have also recently had interim numbers from Knowlton and the implications for those caught in the lobster-pot of CUBA are horrific – anyone who handed over more than the 0.01p that David Lenigas paid for the bulk of his shares, that is.

Octagonal – another reminder why John Gunn’s piggybank is uninvestable

Published 246 days ago

I find Octagonal (OCT) such a frustrating stock as, at the heart of it, there appears to be a decent business that can throw off cash and that potentially looks undervalued using standard valuation metrics but while the CEO and major shareholder, John Gunn, continues to use its bank balance as a personal investment piggybank, I have to leave it well alone.

To his credit after a little final flourish last night Mr David Lenigas has gone all quiet on twitter in terms of character attacks on me and I shall reciprocate.

From lies to smears, David Lenigas is a disgrace - new tweet, what a tool

Published 265 days ago

Earlier this week I ran an article which David Lenigas responded to by accusing me of getting my facts wrong and thus been a pathetic sad person and poor journalist. It is at least better than tweeting about my mother's suicide 40 years ago. I demonstrated HERE that Lenigas was 100% wrong, my facts were 100% right and that he was a smearing, liar, happy once again to mislead his investors. Tomorrow at UK Investor Show I shall demonstrate he is much much worse. Lenigas has responded to his impending downfall with a  new tweet.

Needless to say, the email from David Lenigas is pathetic but just to bring a smile to his face as he gazes down to the marina in the Monaco tax haven, where lives, to look at his 36 foot yacht....

UK Oil & Gas and Horse Hill - the most ludicrous pre-placing ramp in the history of AIM exposed

Published 276 days ago

There are two statements from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) today. One is a hard financial transaction which demonstrates clearly that UK Oil & Gas shares are horrendously overvalued and the other is the most ludicrous attaempt at share ramping in the history of AIM. Defenders of Steve Sanderson, UKOG's CEO, say that he is trying to distance himself from the Aussie share ramper David Lenigas. Frankly even Dave would have struggled to sign off on today's ramping. It is cringe-making and it is noticeable that although it relates to a Horse Hill study, no other Horse Shite company has dared publish these ridiculous claims.

Since March 3 in 25 working days, my old pal Jim Mellon's AIM casino listed FastForward Innovations (FFWD) has released 9 ramptastic good news RNS statements - one every three days. Since 31 March it has released 6 statements - that is to say almost one a day. It is almost as if Jim has been taking lessons from the master, Mr David Lenigas, on the art of the blizzard of ramptastic releases. Yet another placing with your tea vicar?

We have emails from broker Dowgate to potential investors explaining Jabba's plans and saying that the placing would close well before the end of last week. There has been no RNS. Clearly - and not surprisingly - the placement is struggling big time and so LGO has today released ramptastic bollocks from Goudron to try to spoof punters into backing the bailout.

The demise of Motive TV (MTV) & the Slater & Gordon (SGH) car crash were obvious triggers for some of the stupidest folks on this planet to talk shite on Bulletin Boards last week. On some threads (LSE Asylum Worthington WRN being a case in point) no trigger is needed for idiocy. There were numerous splendid entrants for last week's BBM of the week as you can see HERE but there could only be one winner.

Horse Hill time for UK Oil & Gas & others to come clean on the chemical highs as locals speak out

Published 320 days ago

The companies drilling Horse Hill, the so called Gatwick Gusher, have claimed that the oil that has flowed has flowed with minimal stimulation. But perhaps Steve Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) - a proven liar - might clarify what minimal means given evidence emerging from local residents.

LGO Energy - the worst broker note in history shows how this company is worthless

Published 320 days ago

After yesterday's dire news from LGO Energy (LGO) which saw its shares slump to 0.31p the case of Tom Winnifrith vs David Leni-Maths continies and I now bring you another piece of evidence, possibly the worst broker note in history. Analyst Barney Gray at Old Park Lane was either on crack cocaine when he penned this classic back on 21 February 2012 or he was simply writing exactly what the share ramper David Lenigas told him to write. My guess is that it was the latter as Old Park was joint corporate broker at the time. Anyhow, Barney told us that the shares were a buy at 1.2p with a 5p target. But it is what he says in this nonsense that is of real import.

LGO renegotiates with Frog bankers again - admits it is in dire straights

The unacceptable face of capitalism, Mr David Lenigas, can ramp LGO Energy (LGO), the company that paid him almost £1.8 million over 7 years to help buy his 100 foot yacht, as much as the fat liar wants but a statement today makes it clear just how fucked LGO is and that its position is getting worse rapidly.

I shall not curse West Ham by going to watch the match tonight at The Conservative Club but for Striebs and others I am aware what is happening. Instead I shall be watching the new series of Grantchester with the Mrs and Oakley and I recommend it to one and all. I look at the latest Horse Shite ramp from David "I am incapable of telling the truth" Lenigas and flag up a placing rumour at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and also Regency Mines (REG). I look at the Pathfinder (PFP) disaster in detail and at Driver (DRV) where the curse of Steve "shagger" Norris strikes again. Madgascar Oil (MOIL) confirms that minority shareholders will be buggered and I look at the farce at Edenville (EDL).  So that is three companies operating in Bongo Bongo land where PIs have been screwed today. Then there is a detailed look at games developer Frontier (FDEV) where the valuation is a rum and coke even after today's profits warning.

David Lenigas Smearing & lying tweet of the day No2 - no wonder folks hate him more than nonce Rolf Harris

Published 324 days ago

You do not like what a critic in the press says? Having already said that he is short of your stock ( a lie) - HERE - the next thing to do from the play book if you are a shameless share ramper like David Lenigas is to accuse him of saying something which he did not say but which is patently idiotic and then to smear him. And so let us examine another despicable tweet from Dave.

David Lenigas took to twitter and explicitly accused me of lying/being a troll/making it all up. Today the shares stand at 0.57p after a placing today at just 0.55p. So who is the liar now?

Rare Earth Minerals: Between a lithium-bearing rock and a hard place despite more Lenigas twitter lies

Published 325 days ago

Bacanora Minerals (BCN), the AIM and TSX-listed lithium explorer with assets in the Sonora province of Mexico, has stood out from its peers in the junior exploration space in recent years.  While share prices have collapsed all around it, this lithium play has maintained a market cap of £70 million despite having yet to release a PFS.   Part of this is because lithium was the hot commodity of 2015, but also because (as Peter Secker alluded to when this exact question was put to him at Gold and Bears) Bacanora has a "supportive shareholder".

The David Lenigas ISDX liquidity LIE exposed in full - Afriag tanks on Friday

Published 327 days ago

Throughout the last few months of last year David Lenigas tweeted again and again how an ISDX listing was the answer to all the liquidity nightmares at the bottom end of AIM. Big Dave misled his folowers for reasons I shall explain below but the proof of that lie came on what for me was a good Friday with Afriag. For Jabba The Hutt with yet another lie laid bar this is a disaster.

Afriag & its Tobacco smuggling issues - a Dynamite Letter from SARS emerges

Published 328 days ago

The tobacco factory at Pietermaritsburg operated by CK Tobacco was at the hear of the Lonrho empire of David Lenigas which found itself emeshed in tobacco smuggling activities some years ago. Ownership of the site passed from Delta Tobacco to CK Tobacco but control remained with Afriag SA principal Yusuf Kajee who in 2011 applied for a new license for his operation from the South African Revenue Service, SARS. An explosive letter that has fallen into my possession shows why that application was refused.

So David Lenigas what is your Afriag pal Yusuf Kajee doing on March 17?

Published 328 days ago

There has been a deafening silence from Afriag (AFRI) as its shares have moved from the AIM Casino to the ISDX lobster pot. It has repeatedly refused to comment on the problems its key players at its main operating subsidiary, Afriag SA, continues to face. Later today I shall publish documents I have obtained from South Africa which show exactly what those players get up to and as a hint...it is illegal. But for now I ask David Lenigas who is at best a keen promoter of this POS if not a shadow director, what his pal - and fellow despicable smearer of critics -  Yusuf Kajee is up to on March 17?

The shares are up 37% today (so just 90% down on the IPO) but I systematically expose the truly bad news LGO is fessing up to. David Lenigas is - as you can see - on twitter having a go at me. Like his tobacco smuggling pal Yusuf Kajee he plays on the suicide of my mother, implying again that I have mental health issues. I do not, but Mr Lenigas will see his soul burn in hell. He is shameless and all folks with any conscience will just refuse to have anything to do with him.

Lenigas tells us that ISDX - not AIM - is where the liquidity is so how come not one fucking share has traded in this company since 18 February with not one share traded after this latest ramp and with the shares (listed at 5p) stuck at 0.5p to sell just 3 months later? Answer please Mr Lenigas? And so to today's ramptastic bollocks from Jabba The Hutt.

Actually it is the Chris Oil of cats. I explain. I also look at Stanley Gibbons (SGI), the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and the first placing into the Horse Hill ramp - Evocutis (EVO).

We all know this is a lie. Investors in Lenigas Cuba know this is a lie. And tomorrow when Afriag (AFRI) leaves the AIM Casino and trades only on ISDX, its victims ( oops I meant shareholders) will discover that Lenigas is lying. Folks - you have just a few hours to sell - look at the spread!

So I really dont care about shares and it was not a good day for a moronic disciple of David Lenigas with 9 followers to have a go at me on twitter. As it happens I have a few things to say about Jabba who I will be nailing for good within six weeks. I also look at Nomad resignations, Auhua (ACE), DQ Entertainment (DQE), Milestone (MSG), Litebulb (LBB) and then at Magnolia (MAGP) and the wider career of Gavin Burnell.

It is not, it is fewer tax breaks for the uber rich and I explain why chancellor Osborne should go further and tell the son of privilege Rees Mogg and others where to stick it. But first, someone accuses me of being jealous of David Lenigas as he is rich. Folks used to say I was jealous of Rob Terry's wealth and that is why I attacked him. Au contraire, fraudsters and shysters will always have more money than I but it is not their wealth that angers me but how they accumulated it as I explain for Judith W who - pathetically - posts:

I start with an analysis of how David Lenigas and his gophers Hamish Harris and Donnie Strang have managed to spunk £1.4 million of the £1.55 million they had to play with at Polemos (PLMO) in three and a bit years and why after today's placing this is still a POS with the toxic Jabba The Hutt odour all around it. Then it is onto LGO Energy (TOAST) and its latest disaster. Then I move onto Leed Resources (LDP), Motive TV (MTV), Golden Saint Resources (GSR) and Canaccord (CF). One suspects the great analyst Saint Kevin of Ashton loved its disastrous numbers today as the banksters had a hot date with karma. This podcast contains strong language. Lenigas is one four letter word but there are many others.

Inspirit - about that change of auditor: why no Companies House filing? And More

Published 380 days ago

I have already flagged up enough Red Flags with regard to the ex-Lenigas play, AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) - see HERE and HERE - to consider it a share to keep well clear of even Desperate Dan's bargepole. But a change of Auditor is also a Red Flag, and there appears to be no statutory filing showing on the Companies House website to explain why PKF Littlejohn LLP is no longer in post.

Inspirit Energy - a festival of Red Flags on New Year's Eve: Sell

Published 381 days ago

The ex-Lenigas stock that is AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) issued its full year results to 20 June 2015 on the day of its reporting deadline of New Year's Eve. Just the timing of the RNS during no-one-is-watching o'clock week is a Red Flag in itself. But quite how it has taken six months to collate its numbers when there are no sales is a mystery to me - that is another Red Flag, but there are plenty more. For a start, there is a change of auditor but a glaring error and a few other matters leave me reaching for the bargepole even before looking at the balance sheet.

Tom Winnifrith's sixth share tip of the year - sell Afriag at 0.15p - target 0p

Published 382 days ago

Throughout the Christmas period one of the two principals of AIM listed Afriag (AFRI) has trolled me on twitter, sending me almost 150 tweets accusing me of extortion, taking bribes, of being a coke addict, a drunk, having no qualifications other than serving pizza, of being mad - based on the fact that my mother killed herself- , etc. Yusuf also offered me a bribe to buy shares in Afriag. He has failed to answer critical questions about Afriag (AFRI) and today came up with the most lamentable excuse yet for not answering.

In its Admission Document to ISDX, Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) states that it has acquired 40 shares in TravelWelcome Limited which represents 40% of the issued share capital of that UK incorporated entity. Being a Companies House anorak, any excuse to poke around is taken with both hands and what we find is very odd, for it appears that CUBA has been rather more active than that statement gives credit for. Here is what I found – perhaps Big Dave Lenigas would care to explain what has been going on?

I do not follow the twitter diarrhoea of Jabba The Hutt, partly because the fat Aussie share ramper blocked me and partly because his share ramping is just so tedious. But a kind reader alerts me to two tweets today which suggest that David Lenigas is quite simply cracking up.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 11 December - I prove I'm an optimist - putting cash in a Greek bank

Published 405 days ago

Yes I have indeed done just that, or I think I have. The olive harvest saga continues and the snow has started on the mountains above the Greek Hovel, pictures later. In this podcast I look at Jabba The Hutt ramping Afriag (AFRI) and warn you what will happen next. Then a comment on LGO Energy (LGO) before heading onto PeerTV (PTV) and - in an unusual manner - I cover ValiRx (VAL). You see Satu I am a man of my word, Halosource (HALO) gets "the treatment" as does Gary Newman for buying into corporate bullshit speak. Then it is onto Photosntar Led (PSL), Fitbug (FITB) and finally InternetQ (INTQ).

No David Lenigas it is not the loony bin but Kalamata General. After my fall while picking olives on Monday I thought that I was healing and managed four hours in the fields on Tuesday, albeit in some pain. But after three hours sleep on Tuesday night I awoke at two in absolute agony. The guy from the hotel reception came to my room, arranged everything and within 30 minutes I was at Kalamata Hospital.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 4 December: In Greece I fear only Vrechi

Published 412 days ago

No Albanians, no work on the olive harvest yet. And now Vrechi, that is what I fear. I have yet to discuss my entanglements with Globo (GBO) and InternetQ (INTQ) with my neighbours but I am sure they will understand. I start the podcast on InternetQ and the weedy rally today. Then it is onto LGO Energy (LGO), another David Lenigas triumph. But what does Jabba The Hutt care? He sold his shares. En passant I mention UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Motive TV (MTV) and Papua Minerals (PML) before taking a detailed look at Escher (ESCH). 

LGO Energy £0.94 million share placing - far more to come

Published 412 days ago

I make this two confetti issues by floundering LGO Energy (LGO) in the three months since Jabba The Hutt, aka David Lenigas, dissed me on twitter for saying a placing was inevitable. The bad news is that there is a far larger share issue still needed. The good news, for the fat Aussie share ramper at least, is that he sold most of his LGO shares (if not all) last year without disclosing it as he should have done. So it is not his problem.

David Lenigas - so who paid for all your 0.01p shares in Rare Earth Minerals?

Published 412 days ago

Jabba The Hutt likes to get shares at 0.01p in companies he is involved in. So what if other folks have to pay far more at the same time, David Lenigas sees it as a reward for enterprise. We have already seen scandals on this front at Lenigas Cuba (HERE) and AfriAg (HERE) but the Big Daddy is Rare Earth Minerals (REM) as I shall now explain.

David Lenigas and his Afriag share purchases - there is only one explanation

Published 413 days ago

David Lenigas, made great play some weeks ago of how he had spent £60,000 buying 15 million shares in AfriAg (AFRI) at 0.4p and 0.45p. With the shares now at 0.24p to sell it was not Jabba The Hutt's greatest trade but the question is why did he do it all?

Afriag - when's the placing Mr Jabba The Hutt

Published 414 days ago

Shares in Afriag (AFRI) continue to slide despite token share purchases by fat Aussie share ramper David Lenigas, aka Jabba The Hutt. They now trade at just 0.24p valuing the company at £3.3 million. It ain't worth it. The last placing, 13 months ago ( unlucky for some, like those who participated) was at 0.4p. In absolute terms that was a poor investment, relative to most Jabba stocks it is quite a good result.

Since every BB Moron already knew this and since half the Horse Hill runners and riders have to do a placing to survive fairly soon, shares in this stable of dogs have not soared as promoters such as David "Jabba The Hutt" Lenigas wuld have hoped.

Once again sincere apologies to Jabba The Hutt groupies for failing to pick up David Lenigas on anything in yesterday's podcast. Before you all get cold turkey, I have a few observations about Octagonal (OCT) nonsense today.I start with a look at React Energy (REAC) a trainwreck involved in green energy shite. I suggest that anyone who believes in this hocus pocus nonsense should read "The Real Global Warming Disaster" by uncle Chris.  Then it is onto Anglesey Mining (ATM), Golden Saint Resources (GSR), Slater & Gordon (TOAST) and Northern Petroleum (NOP).  See you all tomorrow at Gold & Bears in London.

Rare Earth Minerals – another way of looking at it?

Published 419 days ago

Another hat tip to reader Rudyard. Jabba The Hutt, aka, David Lenigas is a share promoter, and a good one – so far at least - , but the result is that shareholders in things like Rare Earth Minerals (REM) can end up over-paying. There is no doubt that the Sonora lithium deposit is very large, and in the fullness of time could generate substantial value.   But that misses the point, which is that Rare is an investment company and one should therefore look at the share price in terms of the current market value of the individual components.  This is important when you can get access to the same assets via investing directly, in other listed companies.

Leni Gas Cuba – how the 2p placement participants can complain to the Financial Ombudsman Service

Published 442 days ago

Yesterday in his BearCast, Tom Winnifrith offered subscribers to Leni Gas Cuba’s (CUBA) controversial 2p placement some excellent advice. He suggested that if the placement participants were not made aware that the company’s founders were about to or had just issued themselves 250,000,000 shares at 0.01p (for just £25,000) they could stand a very good chance of getting their money back. To do so they would need to complain to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). Below I provide more information about how to go about this.

Was David Lenigas the source of the false rumours of a stock shortage in Leni Gas Cuba?

Published 443 days ago

An explosive email has emerged, sent by David Lenigas on Friday to various brokers ahead of the disastrous Leni Gas Cuba (CUBA) IPO. Over the weekend false rumours spread across social media that there was a serious stock shortage ahead of the company’s calamitous market debut. The word was that conditions were primed for another potential New World Oil & Gas-style (NEW) short squeeze. If there were any doubt that this was all nonsense, yesterday’s crushing collapse in Leni Gas Cuba’s share price obliterated this. The rumours were completely untrue and it now seems that Lenigas himself forwarded the email below to a number of online stock rampers. Unsurprisingly this email is now doing the rounds.

UPDATED: False rumours of a stock shortage in Lenigas Cuba

Published 444 days ago

Over the weekend there was a concerted effort across social media to con private investors into believing that there was a stock shortage for this morning’s Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) IPO. This morning I’ve triple confirmed from various City sources that these rumours are false. There is no shortage in Lenigas Cuba stock for sale, as evidenced by the company’s disastrous market debut. If you want to fight the tidal wave of sellers you can fill your boots with Lenigas Cuba stock. The stock flippers are having a very bad day in the market, despite their best efforts to manipulate it.

Lenigas Cuba IPO - a song for market abuser Chris Oil & fat Aussie share ramper big dave

Following possibly the least successful IPO of the year which has seen punters minus 80% to sell on day one, I'd like to dedicate this song to market abuser Chris Oil who has some explaining to do to mummy and to fat Aussie share ramper David Lenigas.

Lenigas Cuba IPO car crash – Minus 80% to sell on day 1 and it gets worse

Published 444 days ago

I hope you had your beer and popcorn ready for the IPO of Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) at 5p because the spread on the shares right now is 1p-1.75p and it gets worse. The “size” is 25,000 to 50,000 which means that you can sell in parcels with a maximum value of £500. If you invested £500,000 at 2p like market abuser Chris Oil did back in July its going to take a long time and a lot of phone calls to get, some of, mummy’s money back.

Amid the general commodity gloom, entrepreneurial Mexico-focused lithium hopeful Bacanora Minerals (BCN) is making distinctly optimistic noises after reporting a C$2.7 million (£1.3 million) loss for the year to June. Chief executive officer Peter Secker says the company, which floated on AIM last year with a £4.75 million placing at 33p, half its then price on the Toronto Venture Exchange, and now trades at 86p, faces ‘highly favourable demand dynamics, as a result of the vital role lithium plays in growth industries, such as mobile communications, electric vehicles and energy storage.’

Open letter to UK Oil & Gas’ Nomad – Does it consider Stephen Sanderson a fit and proper person?

Last night, the BBC’s Inside Out London documentary revealed that UK Oil & Gas’ (UKOG) Stephen Sanderson was the original source that claimed there are “between 50 and 100billion barrels of oil in place in the ground” in the Weald. This wildly optimistic figure was at the heart of April’s Horse Hill propaganda campaign, which caused the shares prices of all the listed companies involved to rocket. UK Oil & Gas half-heartedly tried to distance itself from these wilds estimates, but it is now unequivocally clear that it was behind them. Stephen Sanderson surely now has to go. Let’s see what the company’s Nomad (scandal plagued WH Ireland) has to say about this.

In the last 54 trading session, Afriag has recorded 22 zero volume days and the share price has flat lined. So why might Lenigas feel so committed to this apparent dead duck of a stock?

Entrepreneurial Rare Earth Minerals (REM), headed by controversial Australian resources player David Lenigas, has spent £324,500 lifting its stake in fellow AIM counter Bacanora Minerals (BCN), as work speeds up at Bacanora’s Sonora lithium project in northern Mexico. Following Bacanora’s milestone agreement to supply Tesla Motors, US maker of electric vehicles, with lithium hydroxide for the batteries they need, the Sonora participants have mobilised a second rig to accelerate drilling the second nine holes of an 18-hole programme as part of a pre-feasibility study on the project, which should be completed in the first quarter of next year.

I can't blame Messrs Lenigas and Sanderson for not calling me as they don't know me from Adam, but Neil, well all I can say is I'm hurt, deeply hurt.

Horse Hill – why is David Lenigas so afraid to tell the truth?

DECC confirms Horse Hill Developments has not applied for flow testing of HH-1

Published 631 days ago

This morning The Telegraph delivered another broadside to Horse Hill. It claimed that Horse Hill Developments Ltd has not applied to the regulator, the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA), “for permission to begin flow testing the Horse Hill-1 well in the Weald Basin.” This flies directly in the face of claims made in RNS announcements by the six listed companies participating in Horse Hill, not to mention David Lenigas on Twitter. We’ve spent much of the day seeking official confirmation of the accuracy of The Telegraph’s story. In the last hour we’ve received it.

Corrected - Horse Hill; What UK Oil & Gas didn’t tell you in this morning’s RNS

Another day, another smokescreen from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). As with all of this month’s announcements from the company, what it hasn’t said is more important than what it has. Quite how long UK Oil & Gas’ Nomad, WH Ireland, will allow the excessive over-promotion of Horse Hill to go unfettered is anyone’s guess, but in the meantime here’s what the spinners hope you are too stupid to figure out for yourself.

Horse Hill – the best stock promotion in years!!!

Eventually a lot of people are going to lose a lot of money on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). This morning’s announcement from the company, laughably titled “Significant upgrade of the Horse Hill discovery”, has been wrapped in one of the most skillfully crafted and epic stock promotions of recent years. I correctly predicted this “Horse Hill super-ramp” was coming, last month. Today it is just sad to watch gullible and lazy “credible” journalists from the BBC, ITN and Sky News fall over themselves to interview David Lenigas. God knows what hysteria tomorrow’s papers will carry.

One of the saddest parts of being a financial commentator when you unearth facts which don't quite compliment the belief mechanism of either shareholders or traders. Often the level of misunderstanding is so great that it becomes hard to know where it starts and ends. I'm not going to overload investors today with all the facts but perhaps enough for people to question the presentation of operations, investments and ability of Stellar Resources (STG), an AIM listed creation of David Lenigas.

Rule 13 of “The 49 Golden Rules of Making Money from Oil, Gas & Mining Stocks” courtesy of Regency Mines (and Quindell!)

It has amazed me how writing for ShareProphets attracts the unwanted attentions of crazies. As soon as you write anything that is perceived as being vaguely negative about a treasured stock, the nutters come crawling out of the woodwork to launch tirades of social media abuse. I won’t name the chief cheerleader for Regency Mines (RGM), but this person took exception to my comment at the end of July that it was “surely only a matter of time” before Regency placed. Tweet followed email followed Tweet about what utter rot (not the word used by my avid fan) I was talking, how I didn’t know anything about the company and there was no way it would place. Well, after today’s announcement, Regency has placed twice in the last seven weeks. What a shock. Perhaps some readers of ShareProphets would do well to spend a little less time frantically bashing keyboards and a little more time reading Tom and mine’s latest book “The 49 Golden Rules of Making Money from Oil, Gas & Mining Stocks”.

Solo Oil; pipe dream or genuine prospect?

Published 846 days ago

Just over two months ago, Gary Newman (a little ambivalently) picked Solo Oil (SOLO) as his runner in the Horse Hill race. His reasoning had less to do with Horse Hill and more to do with the appraisal of the Ntorya gas condensate discovery in Tanzania, in which Solo retains 25%. As it turned out, this was another good call by Gary, albeit a reluctant one! At the start of the month, Solo announced a sizeable upgrade to the reserves at Ntorya-1 and the company’s share price hasn’t looked back. From an end of day close of 0.38p on September 3rd, this stock hit an intraday peak of 1.2p and now trades at 0.98p, last seen. This values Solo at £46.56million. Now that the company has secured a c.$8.6million funding package, the question is can Solo build on its recent fantastic gains?

Yesterday was a momentous day for AIM as we saw David Lenigas depart his role at Leni Gas and Oil (LENI).

Early birds and arbitrageurs got the worm when Bacanora Minerals (BCN) floated on AIM on Friday 25 July, with a £4.75 million fund raising at 33p. This is little more than half its price on the Toronto Venture Exchange, where it has traded for three years, and it surged immediately to 82p, to give a stock market value of some £65 million. The company, steered by veteran entrepreneur and chairman Colin Orr-Ewing, is out to commercialise two projects in Mexico, to produce two versatile products, borate with applications ranging from fibreglass to skin cream, and  lithium, for electric vehicle batteries, and insists the float price was agreed in May before excitement about the London issue sent the shares soaring in Canada.
