Karelian Diamonds – Jubilee No-One-Is-Watching O’clock Bad News

AIM-listed Karelian Diamonds (KDR) – the junior part of the Prof. Conroy AIM twosome (the other being Conroy Gold and Natural Resources, CGNR) waited until the last of the Jubilee bunting was being put up at 3pm the day before a double bank holiday (truly no-one-is-watching o’clock) to announced that the final meeting of the Finnish National Land Survey in relation to Karelian’s diamond mine plans at Lahtojoki has been delayed. Fortunately, ShareProphets was watching…..

Conroy Gold and Natural Resources: Big Fundraise, so now technically solvent? Er…..

The good Professor Conroy and his team at AIM-listed Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) must be feeling very pleased with themselves this morning, as the company announced a decent-sized fundraise to bring in £1.87 million in cash (before expenses) and a debt-for-equity swap regarding outstanding director fees and other debts to wipe out £379,000 of monies due. So does this finally cure Conroy’s long-running illness of technical insolvency, as highlighted by the Auditor in November’s FY accounts to May?

Conroy Gold and Natural Resources – Anglo Asian walks, in comes Demir Export AS but I still say SELL.

AIM-listed Anglo Asian Mining (AAZ) has walked on its proposal with fellow AIM-listed Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) to form a joint venture with Conroy’s gold assets in Ireland. Not such a disaster for Anglo Asian, but there is a question over who pushed who and when. Meanwhile, it seems that Anglo has been replaced by Turkish outfit Demir Export AS.

Gold – Jordan Roy-Byrne calls the bottom again and three stocks to be buying now

I noted a few weeks ago that ShareProphets’ favourite technical analyst,  Jordan Roy-Byre of TheDailyGold.com, has called the end of the Gold correction which started last August. It was a very rare error. Now, noting that making declarative statements does not necessarily add value for the reader, he has called the bottom for gold miners and juniors. I hope he is bang on the money this time!

Karelian Diamonds – £0.42m placing at a whopping discount & still how’s it going to pay for any exploration?...

AIM-listed Karelian Diamonds (KDR) – the junior sibling of Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) – has announced a placing to raise £420,000 at 4p per share, a whopping 24% discount to yesterday’s closing price.

Conroy Gold & Natural Resources – deal with Anglo Asian Mining, now let's get serious

Sometimes something comes out of left field and takes you by surprise. This morning, AIM-listed Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) announced a proposed joint venture with fellow AIM-listed Anglo Asian Mining (AAZ) aimed at bringing Conroy’s Irish gold assets to production. Anglo Asian is a serious player, so this deal is a great achievement for Conroy – even if, as things stand, it remains heavily technically insolvent.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: this is the final straw Boris, you can all kick me in the nuts if I ever vote Tory again

It is we in the private sector that have suffered the massive economic pain from the Government's blundering during Covid. It is also the private sector that will eventually create the jobs and wealth to pay for it. So what is Boris doing? He's landing us with a bigger bill to pay so he can reward doctors (the top 2% of earners), taking the fucking knee policemen and the bedwetting stay-at-home teachers. Fuck you Boris.  You and I are done - this was the final straw. After thar brief message from a (now) Plaid Cymru supporter, I look at healthcare bubbles, Aids and Covid, at Midatech Pharma (MTPH), Audioboom (BOOM), Conroy Gold (CGNR), IQE (IQE) and Bidstack (BIDS).

Karelian Diamonds – ludicrous ramp falls flat: is there an attempted placing on the way, perchance?

AIM-listed lifestyle company Karelian Diamonds (KDR) has issued what must be the most ludicrously ramptastic RNS this morning. It is, and has been for ages, technically insolvent and yet this morning it has issued a statement telling the market that it has been granted new diamond exploration reservations in Finland. Given that it has no money, or at least it has negative net current assets last measured at MINUS EUR 1 million as at last November, what’s the point? It can’t explore what it already has!

Conroy Gold and Natural Resources - £50k of February Placing dribbles in, still £100k to go

Roll up, roll up – buy now, pay whenever you like! AIM-listed Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) seems to be behaving more like a cheap furniture shop, rather than a serious company when it comes to raising money. On Thursday afternoon it updated on the placing way back in February, under which (unbeknown to the market) most of the cash it said it had raised didn’t arrive. Updates last month detailed some cash which finally dribbled in and on Thursday we learnt that another £50,000 had arrived. Good news……just £100,000 to go out of a £302,500 fundraise.

Red Flags at Night: Conroy Gold and Natural Resources – the (rubber?) cheque is still in the post (honest guv’)

Back on 2 April, AIM-listed jam-next-century gold play (apparently) Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) finally got around to fessing up that its much celebrated fundraise six weeks previously has seen a shortfall in that £188,000 of the £302,500 supposedly raised (ie well over half) had not arrived. The whole episode stank of AIM Rules breaches and a letter duly landed on Oxymoron-in-chief Marcus Stuttard’s desk. We were told a further update would follow as soon as possible and in classic Red Flags at Night fashion, yesterday at 4.51pm on a Friday evening – no-one-is-watching o’clock – the update duly arrived. Now if all the money had arrived, I reckon we would have found out at a more normal time like 7am……

Letter to Marcus Stuttard at AIM Regulation – Ref Conroy Gold & Natural Resources blatant rule breaches

On 18 February 2020 AIM-listed lifestyle company Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) announced a successful placing to raise £250,000 and that it had undertaken a subscription to raise a further £52,500 all at 12p per share. Yesterday, more than six weeks later, the company ‘fessed up that a total of £188,000 was still outstanding. It seems to me that the “successful placing” was anything but at time of announcement, given that the cash was yet to arrive, and that the company had not “undertaken” a subscription to the extent originally advised for the same reason. “Undertaking” maybe, but not “undertaken”.

Gold – prepare for a Rip-Roaring bull market says Jordan Roy-Byrne, but it may be a while

All bear markets are different, but it strikes me that the current one does bear some resemblance to the banking crisis of 2008. For a start, the apparent solution is more money printing from the central banks and more record-low interest rates. And that brings me to gold.

As has been pointed out on numerous occasions on the website, AIM-listed Karelian Diamonds has a balance sheet in a complete mess and I reckon it has been techinically insolvent in that it has negative net current assets for an age. Not only that, like Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR), it is run by the goodly Professor Conroy, has money owed back and forth between the two, used to be part of Conroy anyway, shares its head office, has been under attack from disgruntled shareholders (twice) and has little to show for its existence. So today someone has ponied up £240,000 to keep the lights on. Nothing surprising there – this is AIM, after all – but the price is surely bonkers!

Share Talk is a website that takes money from, usually, crap companies. It does not appear discerning. If you are a PLC with a cheque book come on down!

Photo Article - Conroy GM

 Just to give you a flavour of yesterday's farce of a GM at Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR). The serious implications are outlined HERE. Below you see the board, then the audience packed with Conroy stooges, average age 126. Finally a picture of one old coot who on the second vote of five appeared to switch sides to join the rebels. Was it the power of my quizzing of Prof Conroy that had turned him? Er...no. A couple of minutes later he raised his hand to say that he had voted the wrong way and could his mistake be reversed. It was not a room in which to crack jokes about Alzheimer's although such bad taste would soon have been forgotten by most of those attending.

Conroy Gold and Nat Res: look at the timeline over Warrant Exercise and Placing

I have a question for Professor Conroy, of AIM-listed Conroy Gold and Natural Resources infamy. Tom Winnifrith tells us that the paperwork for the warrants exercised by him and by his sidekick (which were announced on Wednesday last week) was filed last Sunday. We also learnt yesterday that the cash went straight back out of the kitty to repay Conroy/Jones by settling director loans - apparently ahead of term. 

The two big takeaways from the Conroy GM which make its shares a slam dunk sell to halve from 25p

The Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) GM voted c 5 million to 4.1 million to back the current lifestyle funded, rule breaking board led by 84 year old Professor Moriaty and not the rebels From attending the meeting there are two takeaways which tell me the shares will collapse next week and proof of just how grossly misleading an RNS from Wednesday was.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast - Meeting Methuselah & his pals at the travesty of a GM that is Conroy Gold

This GM is sheer comedy. I have proposed all five resolutions to oust Professor Conroy and his sidekick Maureen Jones and to install three rebels. I quizzed the Professor and his coterie of aged disciples clearly despise me. I report back on the almost comic proceedings at the Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) GM and shameful admissions made by the evil Prof.

Professor Richard Conroy & Conroy Gold now under Central Bank of Ireland Investigation - source

The Central Bank of Ireland handles the sort of regulatory functions that in the UK the FCA makes such a bollocks of undertaking. A source very close to the situation has revealed that Professor Richard Conroy and Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) are now under a preliminary investigation after the events of the past week.

BREAKING: Conroy Gold & the evil Prof try to rig GM by illegally adding shares to voting list

At 2 PM yesterday, Capita Registrars signed off on a shareholder list at that point as being those who could vote at Friday's GM called to oust fat cat bosses Professor Richard Conroy and his henchwoman Maureen Jones from Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR). Shortly before 2 PM the Professor called Capita and added 500,000 shares to the register - probably enough to swing the vote. What he has done is wholly illegitimate and must be reversed at once if Capita, Nomad Allenby and AIM Regulation give a damn about their own rules and common justice.

Professor Conroy exercises massively out of the money warrants to keep his gravy train going

On Friday shareholders in Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) will vote on whether to oust chairman Professor Richard Conroy and his sidekick Maureen Jones The dastardly duo are doing everything they can to cling on as the vote will be tight.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Has Uzi Katz dumped his Telit shares & the next Neil Woodford car crash awaits

I start with a discussion prompted by a reader request on whether a brand has a hidden added value which you should account for when making an investment. Another reader asks if it is time to buy back into Eden Research (EDEN). I think he is being spoofed and explain why. Then I look at the latest (non) news from Telit (TCM) and ask if the mortgage fraudster and fugitive from US Justice, Uzi Katz, has dumped his shares. I look at what is happening at Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) , at the latest Mosman (MSMN) spoof, comment again on Nighthawk (HAWK) and then at the next Neil Woodford car crash RM2 (RM2).

Calling Co-Conspirators in Dublin - what are you doing a week tomorrow?

As I explained in today's bearcast, Professor Moriaty, the founder and chairman of the AIM listed lifestyle company pretending to develop a gold mine that is Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) is currently the Number One target of the Sheriff of AIM and I am flying to Dublin on 6 October to nail him.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I defer to the guru Paul Scott & when is a legally binding lock in not a lock in?

On today's bearcast I look at K3 Capital Group (K3C) and ask when is a legally binding lock in not a lock in? If I hear another fat cat CEO say that he is dumping shares "in response to institutional demand" I think I shall scream. I have some observations about and (unanswered) questions for BNN (BNN) and its - suspended - CEO Darren Mercer. I have some observations about the democracy hating Professor Moriaty of Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) and then a few observations from Paul Scott and myself about Boohoo (BOO).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I insult fat pig Sam Smith of FinnCap because she banks a monthly fee to act for an insider dealer

Apparently I am not allowed to call Sam Smith of FinnCap a fat pig because she is female and women have "body image issues". Well, as an overweight male, I can say that we men can also have such issues. I won't therefore be sexist and discriminate. I insult Sam because her firm banks a big cheque every month for acting for a firm run by an insider dealer. Sam you take money to act for crooks, I insult you and being a woman won't you off the hook. Do you understand now, you morally bankrupt cow?  Elsewhere I look at: Providence Resources (PVR), Stratex (STI), Anglesey Mining (AYM), Interquest (ITQ) and Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR).

Reader Poll - what Dirty Tricks will Professor Conroy use to maintain control of his lifestyle business

I am going to Dublin on October 6th to do my utmost to see Professor Richard Conroy and loyal sidekick Maureen Jones booted out of the company they founded and have used as a lifestyle business for far too long - and replaced by Messrs Johnson, Heddle & O'Sullivan as I noted HERE. The way that the Prof sodomised democracy at the last Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) GM means that he is not fit to run a pissoir in Bora Bora let alone a PLC. So what dirty tricks do you think Prof Moriaty will use this time: You vote - deadline midnight tonight.

The Sheriff of AIM is off to Dublin on October 6 to oust Prof Richard Conroy from Conroy Gold

Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) has appointed two new patsy Irishmen to its board to bolster the home team of Professor Richard Moriaty, his ever loyal sidekick Maureen Jones and another patsy Irishman. One of the new guys comes fresh from Circle Oil where he was responsible for "all corporate financial and funding matters." Hmm given how Circle shareholders lost 100% I bet they are rushing to buy Conroy shares. NOT. I guess there is only a limited pool of Irishmen so desperate for a PLC NED gig that they will sign up to take Moriaty's shilling these days. Meanwhile...

Conroy hits back at Tom Winnifrith coverage of its sodomisation of democracy, the Prof still does not get it!

I have received a note from Maureen Jones, the close boardroom ally of Professor Richard Moriarty the founder and embattled chairman of Moriaty Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR). Maureen reckons my coverage of the last GM is unfair and wishes to put the record straight. But I am afraid that she and Professor Conroy simply just do not understand why they are in the wrong here and why that forces me and other campaigners such as the top Irish blogger Wexboy, to ensure that we will turn the next Conroy GM into a media circus to see the two ousted. Maureen writes and my comments are in bold.

EXCLUSIVE: papers lodged to oust The Professor & Maureen Jones from Conroy at new GM: The Sheriff will be there!

I can reveal that papers have this afternoon been lodged in Dublin with Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) calling for a second GM to install three new directors: Paul Johnson, Patrick O'Sullivan and Gervaise Heddle. But after the sodomising of democracy that was the last GM, this time the rebels are also calling for the sacking of Professor Richard Conroy and his sidekick Maureen Jones. I will be going to this GM to back the rebels. The Sheriff will get his man, Prof Con you are on notice!

Conroy Gold - sham GM result- rebels will call another, Prof Conroy your stockmarket days are numbered, the Sheriff of AIM is coming to Dublin to get you!

I revealed on Sunday how Professor Richard Conroy had abused shareholder democracy at a sham of a GM for Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR). In preventing three rebels from joining the board when that is what shareholders clearly wanted he has shown himself no longer fit to run a PLC. I can only compare his pastoral care of shareholder rights at Conroy to that handed out by the Christian Brothers to their wards at so many boys homes across Ireland in darker days of old. The Professor shames Ireland and shames AIM with his antics. Conroy has today failed to fess up to exactly what went on and also what has happened since. Okay, he asked for this, the Sheriff of AIM needs to go to Dublin.

Conroy Gold - a sick abuse of democracy at GM, Nomad Allenby must force change or quit - a day that shames AIM

At 2 PM on Friday Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) convened a GM called to fire six directors and install three rebels. What followed was such a shameful abuse of democracy that it shames AIM. Yes, even the Casino, has not seen such a disgraceful rogering of shareholder rights until now. Conroy has yet to RNS the result but I can now reveal what happened. And also make clear that Nomad Allenby has a duty to force change or must quit for this is a dark day for shareholder democracy. It is nothing short of appalling.

Conroy Gold - About that affidavit: GM looms a few points the rebels really need to clarify NOW

This Friday shareholders in Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) will meet in Dublin to decide whether to oust most of the board and replace them with Paul Johnson, Gervaise Heddle and 28% shareholder Patrick O'Sullivan. Court documents filed in Dublin last week beg serious questions but not for the board but for the rebels.

Conroy Gold - boardroom coup now surely a slam dunk as Gonella ups his stake

I've known Andrea Gonella for ages. We have never, to my knowledge, met but have oft corresponded by email. He resides, I think, in Belize and seems to spend a lot of his time fishing. Lucky chap. He is also minted and someone who has for ages believed that Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) sits on a very interesting gold deposit in some of those counties of Ireland that are part of God's own Kingdom of Ulster but are these days in the Republic of Ireland. However...

Roulette

Are we starting to see the revenge of the exploited AIM private investor? Or are they being double duped

Few, other than the clowns such as Marcus Stuttard at the LSE, can argue against AIM having delivered absolutely dreadful returns for investors. Since its launch the AIM Index is down by 5.4% (dividends included). The FTSE 100 has doubled over the same period and the FTSE Small Cap Index is 250% ahead. Actually the numbers are even worse. Strip out a handful of massive winners like ASOS and Domino's Pizza and the AIM Index is into double digit losses. But are private investors who have born the brunt of this wealth destruction now getting revenge with spate of attempted boardroom purges? Yes and No.

Conroy Gold boardroom purge looks a certainty

On June 8th Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) said that it had received a demand to hold a GM to clear out most of the existing board and replace them with Paul Johnson and Gervaise Heddle linked to Metal Tiger and large shareholder Patrick O'Sullivan. Since then silence.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Cloudtag, Starcom, Sunrise - Morons, like cockroaches, are everywhere & have few brain cells

Thanks firstly to those kind folks who showed some appreciation for the introduction to yesterday's bearcast - praise is always welcome. I am still in a bad mood so watch out for some choice French as I discuss Cloudtag (CTAG), Starcom (STAR), ECR Minerals (ECR), Kibo Mining (KIBO), Conroy (CGNR), Iofina (IOF) - in detail - and Sunrise Resources (SRES) and its broker Belfort Securities. Watch out it is placing ahoy at Sunrise as I explain in detail. Just do the math!

Conroy targets 5m oz Gold, I target Cheryl Cole's "virtue" - the only cert is its placing ahoy!

Conroy Gold (CGNR) has today put out a laughable release claiming that it is "targetting" 5 million ounces of gold at its deposits on the Irish/Ulster border. I, as you know, am still targeting getting up close and personal with Britain's most talented chanteuse but I've been on my quest a lot less long than Conroy has been, unlike the AIM tiddler I'm pursuing my quest with my own money and there is almost as much evidence to support my dreams as that of the AIM listed money cruncher. That is to say sweet FA.

Conroy Gold - Results and Capital Reorganisation. Ouch!

AIM-listed gold explorer Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) produced its results to May 2015 this morning, and separately announced a capital reorganisation. It makes grim reading.

Conroy cites new Irish gold target

Long-term AIM dog Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) says it has discovered an ‘extensive’ gold anomaly’ of 700 by 300 metres in soil sampling at Rockcorry in Co. Monaghan some 14 km. from the company’s existing Clontibret gold and antimony project. The Dublin-based company, whose shares have evaporated from 2005’s AIM float price of 25p to 0.8p now, says four samples showed more than 20 parts of gold per billion of soil and five samples showed more than 10 parts per billion.
