Really pleased to see the announcement from MetalNRG (NEX: MNRG) this morning that Paul Johnson, who I dubbed AIM’s very own Tiger Woods for reasons outlined HERE, is back in a top job having taken on the CEO role at Metal NRG. I’m hoping for good things, Paul.

My day at the olive harvest was tiring and curtailed only slightly by Vreki - details HERE. But that explains the late bearcast on a day of stockmarket insanity. I discuss Santa rallies and some true indicators of the lunacy that abounds. At a company level I comment on Cloudtag (CTAG), Servision (SEV), African Potash (AFPO), Advanced Oncotherapy (Hee Hee), Metal Tiger (MTR), Amur Minerals (AMC) and Strat Aero (AERO).

No great surprise after the Metal Tiger (MTR) / BMR Group (BMR) takeover debacle but this morning, Metal Tiger announced wholesale changes to its Board as I felt it was inevitable. Worth taking a closer look and trying to understand what it means for the business from here.

I realise that there are some out there calling for the head of Alex Borelli after the failed merger attempt between Metal Tiger (MTR) and BMR (BMR), two companies where he is the CEO. I admit it all looks odd. But my initial position is based on the assumption that Borelli saved BMR, going in after the previous boss stole all the cash. Fundamentally he is a good and honest man so surely he would not do anything dodgy. Having dug around I put to you another hypothesis.

Following the strange goings-on last Friday, which I covered HERE, with the disappointingly low offer for Metal Tiger (MTR) by BMR Group (BMR), it has all come to a quick end with a couple of announcements on Monday and Tuesday this week, but surely Borelli’s position at Metal Tiger is now untenable.

The details have been announced: out of cash ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play China Africa resources (CAF) is proposing to divest its existing asset to its shareholders by way of an in specie special dividend (apparently valued at 1.75p per share) to leave a clean (and rather empty) cash shell. New money is coming in at just 2.17p a share, with a new board, a new business model and a new set of advisers. Against an IPO price of 40p a share back in 2011, China Africa has been a stunningly poor company. Things look set to change for the better, although the maths suggests that the current share price is still well ahead of events.

An astonishing RNS late yesterday detailing a potential shocking offer for Metal Tiger (MTR) by BMR Group (BMR) has left me, and many of their respective shareholders, scratching our heads. Alex Borelli is the CEO of both companies – what the hell is playing at?

I have no idea why Malcolm Palle of Mining Maven organises the events he does. He charges companies far less for his seminars than other folks so, after hiring a pleasant venue and providing booze and food for all as well as paying his own train fare down from the grim North he won't be making much. But all credit to him for putting on fun evenings. I commend him for his Saintly community spirit and reckon that more folks should pop along as I did last night.

It’s been a disappointing week for the Sub-Standard Shockers XI with Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) out with the begging bowl again for a further £500,000 and Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) now sitting at less than half its recent share price peak, as well documented by Tom (HERE). Last but not least, this shocking deal by Opera Investments (OPRA). Although Tom covered the deal yesterday (HERE), it is so poor that it is worthy of a closer look.

Last week I broke the news that Metal Tiger (MTR) was working on a placing and that Andy Thacker at SI Capital was the broker doing the placing. I dont make things like this up and gave Mr Thacker a chanjce to comment before publishing. I was lambasted by BB Morons for making it up and was told the company would phone me over the weekend to tell me I was wrong. There was no placing, Metal needed no cash. I was accused of market abuse for saying there was a placing. Well guess what?

I stand accused by Was Shakoor, Doc Holiday and others of being a tad charitable towards Metal Tiger (MTR) in today's BearCast HERE.

Entrepreneurial mining investment minnow Metal Tiger (MTR) is drawing comfort from one of its investee companies, fellow AIM counter Kibo Mining, which has reported an upbeat pre-feasibility study on its Mbeya coal-to-power project in the East African state of Tanzania. According to Kibo, the study suggests Mbeya could achieve annual revenues of $48 million (£30.8 million), with a profit margin of $24 to $27 million a year, and bring payback in between 2.6 to 3.65 years, for a capital outlay of between $38 and $73 million, according to which development route the company decides to take.

This morning, Metal Tiger (MTR) announced that its outstanding unsettled position in New World Oil & Gas (NEW) has been settled. Two months late, the failure of regulated market participants to fulfil their contractual terms has materially and detrimentally impacted the fortunes of hundreds, if not several thousand, private shareholders up and down the country. The shareholder action group could not reach the 10% threshold to requisition a general meeting directly because of this. While the London Stock Exchange failed miserably to enforce its own rulebooks, the FCA stood idly by and did nothing. This whole episode is dreadful for the reputation of AIM and calls into question how trustworthy or viable is this market?

Junior resources investment outfit Metal Tiger (MTR) is savouring encouraging drilling and assay results from its Logosan tungsten and gold joint venture in Extremadura, western Spain, as exploration starts across the globe in East Africa at the company’s Morogoro gold joint venture in Tanzania. AIM-quoted Metal Tiger, whose chairman is geologist and Aussie mining sector player Terry Grammer, says the work at Logosan, with 47 holes drilled and assays for 26 of them so far, indicates ‘significant tungsten mineralisation’ over a 410-metre strike length, citing one hole showing 0.32% W03 tungsten trioxide over eight metres and 0.49% W03 over two metres and another showing 0.63% W03 over two metres.

Four months ago I suggested that mining investment specialist Metal Tiger (MTR) was a “mouse that might roar”. Despite two decent rallies since I covered the stock, on both occasions the share price gave back the gains. Today it trades at 0.7p, slightly above my original call. For anyone who has followed Metal Tiger closely this must have been a frustrating train of events, not least because of the significant progress the company has made in realising its ambitious goals. Yes, the mining sector remains mired in the severe downturn of recent years, but Metal Tiger has already proved its incisive edge in rooting out and profiting from some of the best buying opportunities in this tough environment. I caught up with CEO Cameron Parry to hear why he believes the current market is “alive with opportunity” and what he intends to do about it.

Paul Johnson, non-executive director of Metal Tiger (MTR), is confident the company is poised to deliver a stunning turnaround. Formerly called Brady Exploration, this was one of AIM’s many little disaster stories. However, that is in the past and with new management, a new strategy and a refinanced business, Metal Tiger could be one to watch in the coming years, as the resource sector recovers from its savage bear market.
