I warned you in late September, as Tiger Royalties (TIR) published dreadful interims, that the dream team of Mr Related party Colin Bird, London’s worst Nomad Roland “Fatty” Cornish and its spivviest broker John Bellis of Novum would need to do a placing before April Fool’s day or Tiger would be a dead big cat not for bouncing. Things have got worse.
I start with good news for those who like salacious financial markets sleaze.I have been doing more digging into the David Lenigas, Charlie Wood & Anthony Eastman cesspit and this will become a series. Another installment tomorrow. And as a bonus there is a new bombshell on Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer MBE on its way. Who’s been a very naughty girl then? Then the Wandisco (WAND) shocker. I explain why today’s RNS is deceitful and why this makes the company uninvestable. Then it is onto Nanosynth (NNN), Darren Winters, The High Street Grp and a £60 million FCA mini-bond failure and finally, another villain of these pages, Colin Bird and a few thoughts on why shares in African Pioneer (AFP) may be tanking. PS I see that dodgy HK360 Limited has been forced to admit its sold its Net Zero Infrastructure (NZI) shares after yesterday’s letter to the FCA from myself. Will Net Zero now force TR1s from other shareholders who have dumped or doesn’t it care about the rules?
In today’s podcast I look at Argo Blockchain (ARB), at Galileo Resources (GLR) as Colin Bird tried to polish a total turd of drilling results, at why nobody cares about TR1’s even the supposedly virtous folks at Net Zero Infrastructure (NZI) with their patsy Tory career politician NED and finally at the new David Lenigas IPO, Hydrogen One PLC, which is, for so many reasons, a complete and utter disgrace and makes me ashamed to be a capitalist. What is the point of integrity and honesty when shit like this happens?
I start with the three horrors which will make you despair and that is even before we deal with another INSET day, a day of yakking for teachers and inconvenience for the working prime carer who is your host today. Then I look at impending lockdown lunacy and at one company which, i suspect, is already struggling but which will be hit for six, NightCap (NGHT). I skip onto Bezant (BZT) another Colin Bird pump and place, Dev Clever (DEV) – a stock for financial masochists only – Ben’s Creek (BEN) with a new shocking expose of its link with a disgraced financier and then the Woodfordesque dealings involving Boanerges Ltd (BNRG), WeShop, Vela (VELA) and BrandShield (BRSD).
Running an investment company should cost peanuts, especially when its portfolio is tiny. Yet with a portfolio now worth just over£1 million, the Colin Bird run Tiger Royalties has just ‘fessed that in the first half of 2021 its running costs were £148,204. If you are spunking £300,000 a year running a portfolio of c£1 million then even Warren Buffett (23% a year) would eventually go bust. And Colin Bird is no Warren Buffett.
Quindell (QPP) was the first. Maybe there has been another, Anyhow I look in great detail at Eurasia Mining (EUA) but akso at a spoof from cash strapped Verditek (VDTK), more on Union Jack Oil (UJO) and signs of trouble at mill for Colin Bird and Bezant Resources (BZT).
The top non-Tom article this week is My Gold Stocks, and Time To Revisit One I Let Go? by Nigel Somerville at number 4 or number 9 if you include the Bearcast.
David Lenigas is to ramptastic tweeting what Colin Bird is to pre placing pumps. He just cannot help himself. Today’s special is a picture of two men in late middle age standing in a tax haven shaking hands. Apparently this is very significant for Aquis lobster pot listed Valereum (VLRM), the crypto play pumped to 80p three months ago as the shameless chartist turned penny share stock promoter Zak Mir called it up to £2, That helped it get away a £1 million placing at 70p. Its shares now trade at 29p but even that is still a staggering 20 times net assets for this loss making business. Maybe three men could shake hands tomorrow in some tax dodging location and that would be even more significant, eh Dave?
Jubilee Metals (JLP) has been stressing how profitable it will be this year and how next year it will be so profitable that it could pay a dividend. Obviously with Colin Bird as chairman talk of profitability and dividends can only mean one thing. Yes….its another placing! Knock me down with a feather. But this one begs two big sets of questions:
I start with the 4 week delay to what is laughably called Freedom Day here in Airstrip One. It makes me so angry as there is no justification for it. Next up more woke nonsense from Pensana (PRE), before a look at Colin Bird’s quartet of mining juniors and asking if it is worth the risk? Finally Tavistock Investments (TAVI) – too good to be true?
In today’s podcast, I cover Colin Bird’s latest pointless IPO, African Pioneer (ASP/AFP), Galileo Resources (GLR), Amigo (AMGO), Optibiotix (OPTI), Nightcap (NGHT), Catenae (CTEA), Powerhouse Energy (PHE), Sound Energy (SOU), the fraud Zoetic (ZOE), Harvest Minerals (HMI), and how proud I am of my garden.
Good news. We are now at £44,456.89 so almost at the £48,000 target. Please, if you are yet to donate do so today HERE. In the podcast I cover Sosandar (SOS), Amigo (AMGO), Online Blockchain (OBC), Telit (TCM), Argo Blockchain (ARB) and “guru” Michael Saylor, Bidstack (BIDS) and Colin Bird’s Tiger Royalties (TIR) which is a right old dog.
Around six weeks ago I covered the IPO of a small mining company called Caerus Mineral Resources (CMRS) and noted that it looked interesting for anyone who liked these small, speculative type of plays.
I will not advise others to buy shares in Jubilee Metals (JLP) while penny share huckster Colin Bird remains chairman and there are institutions who want to buy but will not do so until we are given a timeline for the exit of a man who sold all his shares, into a ramp, at 13p earlier this year. But, as a loyal shareholder, I am not selling at today’s 17.6p (although I paid sub 4p) after a Zambia copper update which was everything I could have asked for and more. These shares could be 40p+ by some stage in 2022 if Bird does the decent thing and walks. So why the excitement?
Now this really is exciting! Back on the markets I look at Versarien (VRS) after TWO explosive exposes on this website today, Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) St James House (SJH), Pantheon Resources (PANR) and naughty Colin Bird and Xtract Resources (XTR)
Analyst David H. Smith has a prediction to delight we loyal shareholders in Jubilee Metals (JLP). Nope, not Colin Bird’s resignation but almost as good is his view on the relationship between platinum and palladium and why the prices between them are currently inverted. Platinum being quite rare, it is usually more expensive than both gold and palladium. This trend seems to be in the process, he argues, of returning to normal. Good news.
The most read non-Tom article this week is Asiamet deal collapse leaves the company needing funding – avoid until that is secured by Gary Newman at number thirteen, or number twenty one including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
Which PR moron is advising Colin Bird and Leon Coetzer at Jubilee Metals (JLP), a company where I am, of course, a loyal shareholder. Because whoever it is should be fired on the spot. Today there is news which had me screaming at my PC, “Oh just fuck off Colin.” The sooner the old huckster retires, the better. Today’s spivery and assumption that we are all stupid really is the final straw.
With some folks having paid 8p+ for shares in Xtract Resources (XTR) late last week, today the company did a placing to the sewer-dwelling clients of Novum Securities at just 4.5p. The shares are now just 4.8p to sell. Boy those folks suckered in by the Colin Bird ramping must be hurting today. This is so familiar but I did warn you explicitly what the old scoundrel was up to.
A “Support from Blue Chip Institutional Investors”-titled announcement from Jubilee Metals (JLP) is actually a disappointing lack of support from directors. This is with investment by the institutional investors ‘facilitated’ not only by a partial conversion of the convertible loan note held by ACAM LP, which facilitated the acquisition of the Sable Refinery in 2019, but also by director share sales…
I note the comments on gold by Lucian Miers HERE and Nigel Somerville HERE. Are the bulls in retreat? Well I am not and I explain why. Like Lucian, I am attracted to non-gold metals, even if Colin Bird is involved, but I am still c25% weighted in gold and happy to be so.
I start with yesterday’s Albanian lecture in honour of my late father. Then it is onto Colin Bird and Jubilee Metals (JLP), Rio Ferdinand and the Gym Group (GYM) and Toxic Dave Sefton and Iconic (ICON) in the wake of Nigel’s bombshell from earlier. One of the three is a bit of a hero and, to give you a clue neither Bird or toxic Dave ever played for West Ham. But would you want any of the three on the board of a company in which you are invested. I discuss all three situations in detail.
I start with Jubilee Metals (JLP) where I am way ahead but have had enough. The shares are cheap but I have had enough of Colin Bird spouting utter bollocks. After today, I now own more shares in this company than Bird but that is going to change. Soon, like me and Lance Armstrong with accepted Tour de France wins, we will be neck and neck. Then I look at Hawkwing (HNG), Babcock (BAB) and Conduity Capital (CCAP) run by scumbag Greg Collier.
I start with Joshua’s Advent calendar. Then I look at Nakama (NAK) and how the Green Lord has worked his magical powers of levitation and what happens next. Then at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), just 75% overvalued after today’s news. Then I look at Bezant (BZT), today’s acquisition and accusations of conflicts of interests for Colin Bird. He is still not speaking to me but I take a more charitable view of his actions here than some will. But I still regard them as unwise.
Having advised readers to bank big gains on Xtract Resources (XTR), I waited the requisite period and then dumped my own shares, disgusted by the way that Chairman Colin “Calamity” Bird seemed determined to dilute his mug punters in a shameless and un-needed fashion. Today, vindication.
Seven years ago shares in Tiger Royalties and Investments (TIR) traded at 2p. Today they are 0.25p offer. As at June 30 2012 net assets were £4.4 million. Eight years later net assets were £360,000 and last week the company announced another £500,000 raise at just 0.21p. Enough is enough say shareholders owning just under 6% of the company who are now calling a GM to oust boss Colin Bird. Bird has yet to fess up to this via RNS but happily Winnileaks has seen the requisition letter and thus I publish it below.
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with bear raider Lucian Miers on the markets, the real economy, his longs and shorts and gold and with Harry Adams of Kefi (KEFI) ahead of the most exciting six weeks of his career. Listen carefully to what Harry says, having just bought more Kefi a couple of weeks ago I am delighted with certain matters he raises. Finally, I look at Dev Clever (DEV) and why it should face a full stewards!. You can access the show HERE
I start this bonus bearcast prompted by your emails and comments while I started to make some Damson Jam with Joshua with a few comments on the wisdom or otherwise of averaging down with reference to Wishbone Gold (WSBN). Then I look at NoGold’s claim (poor fellow having no gold exposure of late) that gold is being driven higher by herd behaviour. Finally, I am told that Messrs Andrew Bell (Red Rock Resources -RRR), Colin Bird (Xtract Resources – XTR, and others), and Harry Adams (Kefi) are only looking like heroes rather than zeros, as has been the case for many years, because gold is going higher. Referencing also Mr Kerim Sener of Ariana Resources (AAU), I discuss this and the nature of investing in mining stocks.
I do not wish to fall out with Nigel Wray and I do not really blame him for the Reach4Entertainment (R4E) news today but I explain my anger. Then I explain my sympathy for Graham Neary. Next up, results from Centamin (CEY) are great for we loyal shareholders but I ask what is the appropriate yield? Then onto Xtract Resources (XTR) and a phone call from Colin Bird. Treat the “Ford dip” as an opportunity!
I speak as a shareholder and a supporter but this is quite literally insane. The company has appointed Alistair Ford, who works for paid for stock promoters Proactive, as a director. And this is where it gets bizarre. Ford has given an interview to the Sith Lord Zak Mir,
Jubilee Metals (JLP), an AIM and Altx traded metals processing company, has recently followed a “pleased to announce” six month operations update with a compelling presentation at MineProphets and at a current 4.6p offer price…
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch some sparky interviews with Richard Poulden on the collapse of empires but also of the West at every level. Also covered is the death of oil and how we should save our finances against such a backdrop and with Kerim Sener of Ariana (AAU). I also explain why Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is a crooked zero and I review the six short ideas from the previous five shows, one of which is already a zero. You can access the show HERE
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode to access and you can either listen or watch very sparky interviews with our Gary Newman on mining stocks to buy, why gold is NOT going to soar, a compelling £1.7 billion non-mining short and fishing shares, Harry Adams the boss of Kefi (KEFI) - a stock I own - and myself on why Cineworld (CINE) deserves to go bust, wont, but is a stonking short none the less. You can access the show HERE
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly show. This costs 99p per episode to access and you can either listen or watch very sparky interviews with our in house gold guru Nigel Somerville on why you must be in gold and on the stocks or ETFs to own to maximise your bull market gains and with Union Jack Oil (UJO) boss David Bramhill, the most underpaid oil CEO on AIM. I also serve up a red flag-spotting session with reference to Diversified Gas & Oil (DGOC). You can access the show HERE
Bezant Resources (BZT) “is pleased to announce the conditional acquisition of 100% of Virgo Resources Ltd and its interests in the Hope Copper-Gold Project in Namibia, a £350,000 fundraising and the appointment of Beaumont Cornish Limited as its Nominated Adviser”…
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly show. This costs 99p per episode to access and you can either listen or watch very sparky interviews with our in house oil guru Peter Brailey not holding back with a new explicit warning on gas, Stuart Ashman of Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) who was so impressive I have just bought more shares and myself on how gravity cannot be defied forever with reference to zeros in waiting, Amigo (AMGO) and Intu (INTU).

Recent recommendations here whose management have included Colin Bird have fared pretty well we suggest – Galileo Resources (GLR) already +136% and Xtract Resources (XTR) +40%, both on an offer-bid basis. Shares in Bezant Resources (BZT) - where he is Executive Chairman - have also fared well recently, but they remain down from levels of as recently as March and give a market cap currently of still below £2 million despite there looking interesting asset potential...
Four reasons to be happy: Joshua is back at nursery, my daughter has arrived for a week long holiday, I seem to be set for another £50,000 unexpected pension windfall ( bring on retirement!) and my latest premium podcast with Aidan Bishop, Matt Earl and me is a humdinger and is live HERE. Elsewhere I have frank words with Colin Bird and discuss Galileo (GLR), today's discussions with the FCA, Amigo (AMGO) and Powerhouse Energy (PHE) . Oh, PS, please dionate your £10 HERE
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly show. This costs 99p per episode to access and you can either listen or watch very sparky interviews with bear raider Lucian Miers and Colin Bird of Jubilee Metals (JLP), Xtract Resources (XTR) and Galileo Resources (GLR) as well as a devestating new expose of Novacyt (NCYT) explaining why its shares will collapse by 90% and why its CEO's interests are directly opposed to that of shareholders.

Tom Winnifrith writes: I am a shareholder so feel free to ignore all of what follows. If you really want to understand why I bought Xtract (XTR) listen and watch the audio and video interview out late last night with Colin Bird HERE. But if you can't afford 99p this is a tip we produced 11 days agyipping the shares at a 1p offer. They are now 1.5p-1.6p.
This is not a buy tip. We tipped this stock to our readers at a 0.38p offer on May 1. The shares now trade at 0.87p bid. Not bad eh? We explicitly are not advising you to buy now but to those who were wise enough to follow our original tip we say HANG ON as we see the shares hitting 1.6p to sell within months. To explain why here is our original tip from HotStockRockets where we will serve up another hot share tip this Friday coming.
When I started this series in January, I didn’t realise how dispiriting it would be as, yet again, my seven wannabe Loch Ness Monsters have proven to be just another set of blurry photographs of tree branches. At this rate I’m going to struggle to make it to the end of the year but at least I’m not a shareholder in any of them I guess.
A time for celebration as one of the Seven Mythical Creatures has become a reality this month with the long awaited launch of the Melody VR app from EVR Holdings (EVRH). We may never see such events again or at least not the share price anyway.
This session was chaired by our own Chris Bailey and featured Andrew Bell of Red Rock (RRR), Rob Scott of Anglo African Agriculture (AAAP - where we own shares - Ahmet Dik of Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG) and Colin Bird of numerous companies, including Jubilee Metals (JLP) tipped by Andrew Monk this morning.
Well I never. Colin Bird was omnipresent at the show but for Jubilee Metals (JLP) he handed over to his able CEO Leon Coetzer.
Colin was a busy man at the show doing, I think, eight, presentations but it may have been more. Here he is speaking on behalf of Galileo Resources (GLR). In case you are wondering , Colin's badge is an "I love bearcast" sticker. Doesn't everyone?
It’s time for my monthly look at this motley selection of AIM wannabes. Not much to say for most of them so want to focus on the contrasting progress reports from Xtract Resources (XTR) and EVR Holdings (EVRH).
Thanks to Gary Newman and Steve Moore and the 2017 Dragon's Den I am an impoversihed investor in Xtract Resources (XTR). Should I sack them do you think? Anyhow there is a new boss, Colin Bird, and he puts the recovery case...
Colin Bird seemed to be omnipresent at the UK Investor Show and here he is presenting on behalf of Bezant Resources (BZT).
I have not slept since Saturday and I am cream crackered. I discuss a few of the movies I watched flying to and from New York. Naturally watching Paddington 2 for the second and then third time was the highlight but there was also Atomic blonde which had great eighties music and lots of violence with commies getting killed. That's fine by me but there were certain scenes I felt a bit uncomfortable watching. I digress. On today's bearcast I cover UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Mothercare (MTC) and the idea of we bears "preying" on retailers as legal wankers Linklaters suggest. I look at Avanti (AVN) and Pantheon (PANR) and recall an interview I did with Colin Bird. I also look at Nakama (NAK) and discuss how events can spiral badly for a company seen to be in trouble. If you like bearcasts then remember that at UK Investor on April 21 one of many highlights will be a live bearcast with myself and not one but, now, two special guests. Make sure you book a free ticket HERE using the promotional code WINNIFRITH.
We are way ahead on this October 0.07p offer share tip. There is more to come. Updating on Ferrum Crescent (FCR) in November, we were positive on the financial involvement of Colin Bird and certain of his associates. It’s now been announced that Bird has been appointed as Chairman along with a brief update on operational progress…
I’ve been a bit preoccupied in recent weeks with a certain fund manager so thought I should catch up with a few old friends on AIM this weekend but it transpires that not a lot has actually happened. It made me realise more than ever that AIM is much more about the travelling I hope than the arriving. Accordingly, I thought it was more appropriate to write a piece heralding the 7 Mythical Wonders of the AIM Casino instead.
I last commented on Colin Bird’s apparent addiction to issuing shares at Xtract Resources (XTR) back in August but wonder whether there is something more sinister at work here and that Colin is actually being controlled by an evil third party. Where’s Detective Frank Drebin when you need him?
On recently recommending shares in Ferrum Crescent (FCR) at a 0.07p offer price we noted the financial position represented a risk, but that we saw significantly further recovery potential. There has since been “Quarterly Activities and Cashflow Report” and “Placing and issue of Options” announcements…
Xtract Resources (XTR) can’t help itself. In a carbon copy of the manoeuvre back in February earlier this year, it has announced a placing at a shockingly low price just as some positive sentiment was returning around the potential alluvials revenue. Let’s take a closer look.
I thought I would pause before commenting on yesterday’s RNS from Xtract Resources (XTR) relating to the Manica alluvials as I felt it was odds-on that more dilution would come from one source or another following the ramping off the back of it. Surprise, surprise, Yorkville cashed in and announced a loan note conversion today, but let’s take a closer look at the announcements in any event.
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, Colin Bird, Executive Chairman of Xtract Resources (XTR), is at the podium. And make sure that you keep April 21 2018 free for next year's UK Investor Show.
Yesterday, we asked you to caption a photo that YouTube chose for our video of Galileo Resources (GLR) at the UK Investor Show which caught Colin Bird, also of Jubilee Platinum (JLP) and Xtract Resources (XTR), in a particularly animated pose. The quality was high, but the winner of the Caption Contest is:
YouTube automatically chooses a still from a video to place on the holding page. The one that the algorithm chose for our video of Galileo Resources (GLR) at the UK Investor Show shows Colin Bird, also of Jubilee Platinum (JLP) and Xtract Resources (XTR) in a particularly animated pose. Caption this picture - your deadline to post entries in the comments section below is midnight tonight ( Sunday 9th April).

Just catching up with an after-hours RNS from Xtract Resources (XTR) on Wednesday and although I was hoping for an update on how it is going to finance Manica, it was in fact just more dilution taking the total number of shares to over 34 billion…..with more to come...
Hallelujah! Xtract Resources (XTR) finally managed to issue the long-awaited DFS at 4.23pm on 28 February. It’s taken me a bit of time to comment on it as I’ve been scratching my head thinking to myself: “Is that it? Is there a page missing? What now?”
Last Monday, Tom Winnifrith noted a crazy market for resource juniors and that, as an experiment, we'd track a 'Dirty Dozen' of such stocks after 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and on December 31. Here is the first of those updates...
This will not make me popular. If you want to see me going for someone who really deserves it I stick the boot into the war criminal and Brexit denier Tony Blair in a podcast on Tom Winnifrith.com HERE. As to Colin Bird of Xtract Resources (XTR) which we own thanks to the blinding stupidity of Gary Newman & Steve Moore, the lynch mob is out after last week's hugely discounted placing. I am not defending my friend Colin entirely, nor am I tipping the shares, but I think some folks are not giving him credit for some of what he has done to rescue a company that was bust and are not putting his actions in context as I explain in full.
I started writing this article on Xtract Resources (XTR) yesterday morning and was going to comment on how sentiment was turning and Colin Bird’s straightforward approach in recent RNS’s was to be applauded and then – WHAM - a placing RNS from hell and I’ve had to rewrite the whole piece. Thanks Colin!
Further to my last piece two weeks ago HERE on the cash challenges facing Xtract Resources, it announced a ‘keep the lights on’ placing of £220,000 on 21 December pending the authorisation of 9 billon shares at yesterday’s general meeting. All as expected but where, oh where is the goddamn BFS (or DFS or whatever Colin wants to call it)? As yet another deadline is missed, I thought I would provide a helpful overview of the quest for the mining equivalent of the Holy Grail.
Earlier this week, Xtract Resources (XTR) announced an upcoming EGM to authorise the issuance of a further 9 billion shares, a mere 50% of the current share capital! Sounds like a lot but one needs to have a look again at the last heavily dilutive funding round in November to ascertain whether this is actually going to help.
I was starting to warm to Colin Bird at Xtract Resources (XTR) with his decisive action and straight-talking, although today’s hugely disappointing funding RNS which needs about five reads and three espressos to understand leaves me feeling cold, although I’m guessing Beaufort Securities and Beaumont Cornish should shoulder some of the blame.
There are two statements out today from Xtract Resources (XTR) and neither can be viewed in any way as good news. We own these shares thanks to Dragons Den choices by Steve Moore & Gary Newman at UK Investor 2016, and today's admissions prompt me to start filling in P45s for both those writers.
Xtract Resources (XTR) reminds me of someone after a massive night out, no doubt drunk on the promises of Jan Nelson, being held upright by the more sensible friend, Colin Bird, as it stumbles from pillar to post on the way home, desperately close to falling in the busy road.
Jubilee Platinum (JLP) has updated investors on the performance of its subsidiary, Jubilee Tailings Treatment Company Pty Ltd in the three-months' ended 30 June 2016, of its chrome recovery section of the Dilokong Chrome mine tailings project and a progress update on the Hernic PGM-bearing chrome tailings project. After this Tom Winnifrith had a good chat with the chairman Colin Bird.
This was meant to be just a fun debate to start the day with a few laughs. Girly swat Chris Bailey took it really seriously but other competitors myself, Malcolm Stacey, Colin Bird, Dominic Frisby were more relaxed. Speaking for gold Andrew Bell was so relaxed he forgot to turn up but Jan Nelson stood in at the last minute. I explain what a balloon debate is in the video. Enjoy.
The arrival of Colin Bird at Orogen Gold (ORE) has, given the company a new lease of life something Colin and technical director Ed Slowey explain below.
Veteran mining CEO Colin Bird's main ship is Jubilee Platinum (JLP) but he is also leading Galileo Resources (GLR) and explains its investment case in the video below from UK Investor Show 2016
And the final video interview from Gold & Bears is with my old pal Colin Bird of Orogen Gold (ORE). Enjoy.
Today's last video from Gold & Bears is with my old mate Colin Bird of Galileo Resources (GLR) where we are a shareholder, I should declare.
And now another main stage presentation from Gold & Bears with the Van Goddess, Amanda Van Dyke leading a resources panel including Chris Bailey, Willem Middlekoop,Chris Berry and the CEOs of Bacanora Minerals (BCN), Jubilee Platinum (JLP) and Asiamet (ARS). There is also a main stage stoming by myself, Tom Winnifrith, as I put the Dutch chappy in his place.
Making his second (of three) appearances at Gold & Bears is my old friend Colin Bird, here putting the case for Galileo Resources (GLR). Enjoy...
And now it is my old pal Colin Bird who has just taken the helm at tiny Orogen Gold (ORE)presenting at Gold & Bears. Enjoy...
Entrepreneurially-flavoured AIM dog Orogen Gold (ORE) is making excited noises about ‘preliminary interpretations’ of its latest drilling programme at the Mutsk gold project in Southern Armenia, which it claims suggest new gold zones and extensions to the existing zone already identified there. Chaired by colourful wheeler-dealer and shellmeister Adam Reynolds, the company, which began its AIM life as aspirant though ultimately unsuccessful gym equipment supplier MeDa Vinci but recently recruited indefatigable small mining company player Colin Bird as chief executive, indicates the drilling has revealed shallow gold-bearing intervals with enhanced grades.
Having newly raised £375,000 at a depressed 1.2p to pay licence fees on its gold and copper projects in the south of the US state of Nevada, AIM dog Galileo Resources (GLR) still feels unloved by the investment community. Yet the company, whose shares have fallen from more than 30p four years ago to a 12-month low of 1.25p in dire gold and copper markets , could be sitting on ‘a new Carlin Trend’, declares Colin Bird, executive chairman and 35% shareholder.
Depressed gold at $1,092.45c (£700) an ounce and copper at below $2.40c a lb have yet to attract hordes of bargain hunters or contrarians, but AIM-quoted Xtract Resources (XTR) is keeping up the momentum in its quest to develop gold and copper opportunities across the globe. Chaired by entrepreneurial veteran Colin Bird, of Jubilee Platinum (JLP) and Tiger Resources, and steered by chief executive officer Jan Nelson, ex-boss of Pan African Resources, the company is characteristically trumpeting the discovery of a second high-grade reef system, ‘Reef System B’, at its Chepica gold and copper mine in Chile.
Next up in the videos of presentations from UK Investor Show is Colin Bird of AIM listed Jubilee Platinum (JLP). Enjoy.
Xtract Resources (XTR), the recently volatile AIM performer chaired by entrepreneurial veteran Colin Bird (also head of out-of-favour Jubilee Platinum) and boasting disparate copper and gold interests in South Africa and Chile, has moved to add to its African projects. The company has signed heads of agreement with a local copper explorer to investigate 182,000 tonnes of surface oxide material with a copper grade of 0.54% at the Concordia project in South Africa’s Northern Cape.
