To those who sold we could say "oh ye of little faith" but we cannot entirely blame you, Kefi Minerals (KEFI) has taken a good while to deliver but it has now done so in spades. The company has announced that it has signed terms for $135 million of project funding with Oryx Management Limited to finance and operate all the on-site infrastructure at the Company's Tulu Kapi Gold Project in Ethiopia. The planned financing package also includes funding finance charges during a 30-month construction and production ramp-up period. Game on!

For what it is worth Kefi Miinerals (KEFI) lost £1.233 million last year. That is academic. Following the recent placing and VAT refunds from the Ethiopian Government cash is not an issue. What matters and what will drive a re-rate of the shares - now at 5.57p - is progress on the development of the Tulu Kapi gold mine.

This Kefi Minerals (KEFI) share tip at a 0.58p offer has not been a good one so far. We apologise and as shareholders share your pain. The shares are now 0.34p-0.36p. We took more shares in this fundraise at 0.33p on the view that the underlying value is c1p per share. So what has happened?

Kefi Minerals (KEFI) has been hit by the weaker gold price , issues in Ethiopia at a macro political level and by suggestions that its major shareholder ( Odey) may have its own issues. However Mr Odey is doing, we've established that he is not a seller of Kefi. If he needs to raise cash he will do so via larger more liquid positions. The other issues were addressed in a trading statement last week.

Short-termism seems to be even more prevalent amongst AIM investors these days than I can ever remember previously, and this is having an impact on the share price of any company that has any sort of delay to its business.

Brandon Hill is house broker to Kefi Minerals (KEFI) so take what it says with a pinch of salt. Having said that we too like the Tulu Kapi asset which is why at 0.375p we are very happy to own the shares. Following Kefi's recent admission of increased capex, Brandon has changed its models but still claims, in a note out today, that the shares are incredibly cheap.

Shares in Kefi Minerals (KEFI) may have fallen after the latest operational update to just 0.36p but house broker Ambrian reckons that a 6 month delay to first output and an increased upfront capex spend makes no difference to NPV. Really? Is it sure. Ambrian reckons the shares are still worth 1.5p. For what it is worth we are not selling ours and here is the note:

The value in Kefi (KEFI) lies largely in its Tulu Kapi gold prospect in Ethiopia. Sadly there seems to be a spot of bother on the ground with the President of that Country declaring a six month state of emergency as it appears that some of the natives are revolting.

Gold has definitely been one of the best sectors to be in so far in 2016, and whilst I’ve mainly been sticking to those companies in production, there are several smaller AIM listed outfits that are close enough to that stage to have gotten my interest.

We note that former colleague flip flop Ben Turney is (again) urging his followers on twitter to fill their boots with small gold plays including Kefi Minerals (KEFI). We would advise you against betting the ranch on such enterprises but Kefi did have news on its funding for Tulu Kapi last week which was a move in the right direction. Its house broker Brandon Hill, predictably, enthuses...

For an out-and-out counter-cyclical punt, one company that commends itself is bombed-out Kefi Minerals (KEFI), which has been assembling investors' support for developing its Tulu Kapi gold project, holding an estimated 1.7 million oz. in western Ethiopia. At 0.32p, the shares have plunged from 2006's AIM float price of 3p and a 12-month high of 1.32p, reflecting the fact that gold itself at $1,069 an ounce is not far from 50-% off its historic peaks, while the company, steered by seasoned Australian mining player, Harry Anagnastoras-Adams, former boss of fellow AIM counter EMED Mining, now renamed Atalaya, will need around $120 million (£80 million) to bring Tulu KapiI, not perhaps in the safest part of the world, into production by its targeted start date in the first quarter of 2017.

This morning, Kefi Minerals (KEFI) announced a £2.125million placement to fund its final takeover of the Tulu Kapi gold project, from Nyota Minerals (NYO). The company then followed this with an update concerning director purchases of 4.8million shares, worth roughly £72,000.
