Ariana – gold price, production news and share price

Published 6 days ago

After my mea culpa of June 20th we have had further news. It has taken a bit of time to digest, but overall it looks positive to me, if rather laced with jam-tomorrow. With the share price finally off its low point of just 1.25p, let’s look through the detail.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: all Things Fraud and Fright-er-ful

Published 59 days ago

I am pretty much finished here in Greece as I explain in the podcast. And as such I start the journey home tomorrow to spend time in sun-drenched England with the Mrs, Joshua and - of course - Oakley, my utterly pampered three legged cat who is, I gather, now being given iced water to cope with the heat. In this podcast I look at Barclays (BARC), the SFO and the nature of fraud. I look at Thor Mining (THR) where events disgust me and at Ariana Resources (AAU) where I am dissapointed and less accepting than Nigel Somerville is.

Ariana – Placing/Subscription/Director Participation, £2m at 1.3p- did I goof?

Well that solves that: a big placing and a very disappointing 1.3p price tag to boot. So what to do now? 

Ariana remains a buy after resource update

Published 107 days ago

I recently wrote a piece HERE expressing my surprise that the share price of Ariana Resources (AAU) had failed to react positively to good news, so it probably shouldn’t have come as a surprise that a decent update on its resource actually resulted in the share price closing slightly lower.

Ariana – tip update: production, rising gold, shares down. What?

Published 125 days ago

I suggested that AIM-listed gold (then) explorer and now producer was a buy a couple of months back as we awaited the commencement of production. At the time the spread was 1.7-1.85p per share and they duly headed north as the final bits of paper arrived and the first pour was announced, only for the shares to fall away again. Meanwhile the gold price has been a one-way ticket north. I’m very puzzled - what is going on? With humble apologies for the performance thus far…I still reckon it is a buy and here is why.

Ariana – landmark first gold/silver pour at Kiziltepe

Published 146 days ago

AIM-listed gold and silver in Turkey play Ariana Resources (AAU) has announced the first gold/silver pour at its new joint venture Kiziltepe plant in Turkey. It has been a long road but this marks the moment when Ariana completes the transition from explorer to producer – cracking news for head honcho Kerim Sener and his team. So what now?

Ariana – more to come as we await final sign-off for production

Published 174 days ago

I marked out Turkey-base gold/silver soon-to-be producer AIM-listed Ariana (AAU) as a buy a couple of weeks back at 1.85p bid. Construction at the Kiziltepe facility was almost complete and the company had indicated that a weather window allowing the last bits to be finished had opened up. The RNS duly followed. Now we await word of technical sign-off of the tailing dam, Ministry sign-off and then a local government operations permit and it is all go.  Meanwhile we have had exploration news from Tavsan suggesting significant resource growth potential.

Ariana – company chat clearing up a few misunderstandings

Published 184 days ago

I said at the weekend that having several times met Kerim Sener, MD at AIM-listed Ariana Resources (AAU), I felt that he was the exception to prove Mark Twain’s rule. In recommending Ariana (1.85p on the offer at the time, so I’m happy to see the shares now on a spread of 2p -  2.15p) my view was that plant completion, production and therefore cashflow were imminent. We’ve had the completion RNS and we now await the paperwork to allow everything to roll. But who gets first dibs at the bunce?

Ariana – good news: construction complete. Now for paperwork….

Published 186 days ago

Great stuff this morning from AIM-listed Ariana (AAU). The last bits of work to get the mining plant at Kiziltepe were indeed completed during the 10-day window of improved weather as previously indicated by the company, and as I had speculated at the weekend. Red Rabbit is ready to roll - now it is down to the final paperwork trail and then it is all systems go. The transition from pie-in-the-sky explorer to gold/silver production and cash-flow is almost complete.

Ariana – a buy as we await that production RNS

Published 188 days ago

Ariana Resources (AAU) is on the cusp of announcing the commencement of gold and silver production from its Kiziltepe mine, part of the Red Rabbit project in Turkey. But for recent extreme weather conditions it would be there already, but the signs are that the big news of final completion and the move to production are imminent and I expect the shares to react positively when the RNS is finally released containing the word “production”.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Explaining what a kitchen sink is - ref Cobham

Oakley is about to be petrified as the working classes are arriving. He fears them greatly. He fears hoovers even more. But ahead of that I record quickly. Today I cover Darren's bogus religion of global warming and Ariana (AAU) - the market has this wrong - Cobham (COB) - what ia  kitchen sink - my dream St Valentine's Day massacre involving three listed companies which could all go bust on February 14. Please God! I also look at PCG Entertainment (PCGE) and its news today. Hats off to my friend comrade Richard Poulden. I also chide young Steve for not giving credit where credit is due to Majestic Wine (MJW) and have a few words about Aidan Earley. I thank him publicly on one matter although a lawyers letter has been received.

A new Reality TV show at the Greek Hovel: Lots of snakes & AIM CEOs having to do real work

Published 424 days ago

Today I plunged into the wildest parts of the land at the Greek Hovel. In the far corner the olive trees are immersed in frigana, long grass and bushes. If I was a snake that is where I'd live. No question. Tentatively I plunged in to prune but I looked nervously around me every step of the way. There are some areas where the plants are just so dense that I don't dare head in. I will need to call fearless George the Albanian to "assist me" with those. Or maybe I tackle them in December when the snakes are hibernating? Anyhow, as I pruned I thought of all those AIM CEOs sitting at their desks in London, earning vast salaries for shuffling paper around.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 2nd May - why I like gold & why we own what we own

Published 474 days ago

is this is a bullcast? We have 15% of our portfolio in gold becuase we are bearish about shares. Does that make sense? I discuss why you should own some physical gold and then why we own the shares we do, notably Petropavlovsk (POG), Ariana (AAU) and Wishbone (WSBN) but also much smaller amounts of Eurasia (EUA), Bluebird (BMV) and Armadale Capital (ACP)

Ariana Resources……..We Know it’s a Gold Mine But Did you Know It’s a Silver Mine?

HotStockRockets predicts a bright future for Ariana’Resources (AAU) share price, despite recently telling readers to take profits, the hot share tippers expect Ariana to reach 2p or thereabouts leading up to and around the time of Ariana’s first pour of production in the second half of this year. That is too cautious, perhaps why I know TW has not sold his personal holding!

Ariana Resources - great news but we are taking profits

Published 480 days ago

BlueBird Merchant Ventures - first mining IPO for 8 months - we have a small flutter

I really hate backing IPOs. Many companies just struggle to adjust to life as a public company, it is like those cricketers who are great at proper cricket but just can't make the adjustment to the pyjama game. Whatever. We have had a small exposure (well not that small actually) today in Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) - Bluebird Mining as was -  which is the first mining stock to make it to the London market in eight months.

Ariana Resources at 0.95p worth 2.79p?

Published 541 days ago

The research note making this suggestion comes from the house broker so treat it with a bucket of salt. Having said that, mining analyst Sheldon Modeland is no idiot and I also happen to think that shares in gold junior Ariana Resources (AAU) are cheap and thus in that vein (pun geddit?)

Shares in AIM-quoted Turkish gold and copper play Ariana Resources (AAU) have come off the boil since the company won permission from the authorities to proceed with its 232,000-oz. Kizilktepe project in the west of the country. Ariana is choosing the final mining contractor for the project and is negotiating on plant components with local suppliers, having secured a $33 million (£21 million) construction facility from Turkish banking group Turkiye Finans Katalim Bankasi, but its long out-of-favour shares, having rallied from a barely visible 0.75p to 1.35p last month, have fallen back to a price of 0.9p.

Ariana beware of analysts - I expect my shares to almost treble!

Published 802 days ago

It’s been a busy few days for Ariana Resources (AAU), the Anglo-Turkish gold mine developer. A certain mining analyst who has the hump with Ariana, recently upgraded his assessment of the company from “Sell” to “Hold” following the news last week that Ariana had received its forestry permit approval, paving the way for the company to make the transition from exploration to producer. Within 12 months all being well, Ariana will become Turkey’s next gold producer.

Ariana poised to build mine - shares could rally further

Published 808 days ago

Shares in long-term AIM dog Ariana Resources (AAU) have bounced strongly now that the company has finally received formal approval from the Turkish government to proceed with its flagship Red Rabbit gold and silver project, holding a currently estimated 475,000 oz. of gold equivalent in the west of the country. Though still 90% below their 2005 float price of 12p, Ariana shares at 1.19p are more than 50% up from a 0.75p 12-month low, following the formal approval by the Prime Minister’s office in Ankara of a crucial forestry permit for the project.

Ariana Resources: genuinely building value? At 0.9p looks tempting...

Published 1177 days ago

Ariana Resources (AAU) is not a company well known for its ability to keep deadlines. First scheduled production at the company’s Red Rabbit gold-silver project in western Turkey has been delayed several times over the years, but Ariana now claims it expects to reach this goal in H1 2015. Patience is bound to be wearing thin among long term shareholders, as they’ve watched the stock drift lower. The share price has been further restrained since last summer, after Ariana entered into an Equity Swap with Lanstead Capital. However, with new drilling exploration targets defined at Kiziltepe (part of Red Rabbit) and the mine commissioning process plodding along, is it time look at this stock as a medium term buy?
