deanroberthunt: Good balanced article; The hardest thing for many of the smaller miners is actually making it to the production stage, and there are many that never get that far. Even amongst those which do manage to actually get something out of the ground and sell it, it still needs to be able to be done on a scale and at a cost which means that the company is able to make a profit overall. There is little point in continuing longer term if the operating profit isn’t even enough to cover the overheads of running the company, and looks like it will remain that way indefinitely. One small company which seems to be heading in the right direction, and has been making progess operationally as well, is Vast Resources (VAST), although there is still risk as the company has been making a loss and burning through cash. But to some extent that is to be expected at this stage and is something that I can accept – it is when it continues to do so indefinitely that it becomes a problem. Vast has already made the transition from an explorer to a producer, and for a company of this size has fairly well diversified operations, including polymetallic (copper, lead and zinc) mines in Romania and gold operations in Zimbabwe. The recently released final results up to the end of March 2017 showed a significant 230% increase in revenue to $23.8 million, as compared to $7.2 million the previous year. That still resulted in a net loss $2.4 million, which was significantly less than in 2016, although that was largely as a result of write-downs relating to discontinued operations. There were some changes at the Manaila polymetallic mine in Romania where the company acquired the remaining 49.9% of the mine to give it 100% ownership, and the company has since invested money there. That resulted in 828 tonnes of copper and 157 tonnes of zinc being produced in the quarter up until the end of June this year. During that period the Pickstone Peerless mine in Zimbabwe produced just over 4,000 ounces of gold, and having seen a bit of a drop, it is now operating back at expected levels. Operationally in 2016/17 the company managed to make a gross profit of over $6.3 million (compared to just $1.6 million the previous year), but high levels of overheads have always weighed heavily, and this is something which the company is actively looking to address – it certainly needs to if it is to start turning a net profit any time soon. The big concern for investors hear had been the levels of cash that the company was left with, as it had just $425,000 in the bank at the end of August, but this week we have had news on possible finance for future work at Manaila to extend the mine life – based upon the recent positive drilling results, along with the offtake arrangements that are already in place for next year – and that could now come in the form of debt or some form of reserves/production based agreement, which wouldn’t dilute existing holders. Prior to this latest news the company had been considering a possible $10 million investment, which at one stage would have potentially seen 29.9% of the company changing hands through a subscription at 0.4p, although that was later altered to avoid that level of dilution, with talks about direct investment into the projects rather than the shares of the company. If the company is now able to secure the Manaila finance through other means, that should cut the other funding requirements in half, to around $5 million. In the meantime the company managed to secure a bridging loan of $1.68 million from Sub-Saharia Goldia Investments, at an interest rate of 1% per month, and this is in addition to the existing $4 million loan that is already in place from the same source. In the background to all of this, the commodities which the company produces – particularly copper, zinc and gold – have been performing well, and this should certainly help the company in terms of profit margins. Currently the company is valued at over £16 million, at a share price of around 0.35p, so there is still a fair amount of risk if financing can’t be secured via debt or similar, and if it had to come through an equity issue in some form. Especially as the company is now in a phase of its development which could be quite capital intensive. But when investing in small mining companies like this you do expect that to a certain extent and have to consider if the potential upside is worth that risk. Given the way in which production has expanded and revenue has increased, I can see decent upside here for the shares if the company is able to continue making progress so I would class it as a speculative buy following the recent pullback in share price from around the 0.45p level.

tidy 2: Sharetalk update This was the week that Vast Resources delivered 'vast profits' to shareholders! Excuse the pun... Further progress on the Balta Plai licence in Romania was announced via RNS and the share price did the talking from there. Whilst the inevitable pullback came on Thursday as is so typical on AIM, the share price recovered back to recent highs of 0.60 to end the week almost 100% up. It hasn't quite had the GGP treatment just yet but news on Balta Plai is forthcoming and the company are confident of getting that mine into production in the coming months so investors are sitting tight quietly confident. Congratulations to all who hold

temmujin: VAST v SOLG Vast vs Solomon GoldToday 19:19Solomon Gold has a current market cap of 443m and shares have increased from around 3.5p in mid 2016 to 30p+ in 2017. Financials - Looking at the financials Solomon Gold made a 4.9m operating loss last year, only have 1m in property, plant & equipment. 45m in non-current assets, 52m cash. - Vast has 18m revenue, 1.2m operating loss, 26m in property, plant & equipment, 31m non-current assets, 1m cash. Resources - Solomon do have much better grades than Vast, Alpala is a 1 billion tonne resource and Cascabel is a 10 billion resource. However the infrastructure is much poorer, the region has few roads and poor electricity. In terms of resources Vast has 3 billion tonnes at Magura Neagra, probably up to 1billion tonnes at Piciorul Zimbrului, 2.9 million tonnes at Manaila, up to 26 million tonnes at Carlibaba, at least 1.8million tonnes at Baita Plai and 3 million tonnes of tailings at Faneata Tailings. The infrastructure for Carlibaba, Baita Plai and Manaila will all be fully operational within 18 months. The JORC and drilling results from Magura Neagra and Piciorul Zimbrului will drive the share price up massively way beyond 2p given that Vast will be cash flow positive. I might be comparing apples to oranges but it seems to me that if Vast can generate substantial cash and get investment in the next year or two they could easily have a world class mining operation in Romania. That doesn't even include the other Remin mines they could acquire on the cheap!

dudleym1975: Listen to the interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=14&v=c1SegT_StzULinke is above.Some key points:First of listen in at 16m42seconds where AP says 'We£ve been approached by some of the largest companies in the world for off take agreements.' Other Key things:* BP Low Capital Cost to get it operational* 6 Months from Sign-off Should be Fully Operational.* AP says RE BP: £ We will be Working, Preparing Underground (the mine) by X-mas if Not Earlier£* Manila Currently doing 15k a month. With new plant we will be doubling to 30k a month and 25% Cost reduction producing significant returns.* New plant (Manaila) up and running within 18 months. * Potential of being top copper mine in Europe with only 10% of Zagra! 3000MT of ore in total and only 10% gets us top copper mine in Europe. These (agra mines) are not reflected in our share price. In relation to the 2 research notes done very recently (links at bottom)2 research notes come out recently. Do you agree with them. AP says Yes and no. The asset value of the company not reflected in the share price. We are currently at a MCAP of £30m, we£ve been valued at £100 which is a share price of 2.2p which does ot reflect zagra which has 3000MT of ore. Or the complete valuation of Manaila and Carlibaba or the upside potential at Baita Plai. IF we take into consideration of what we have in the pipe line, and what assets we have overall AP believes the share price should be a lot higher similar to a mid tier mining company.

temmujin: dear ashleigh...you my son are a city shill boy...i investigated your postings and this was one of your lapsed multi aliases...only started posting again after 3 years...you cant pull the wool over my eyes mate...been in this game far too long to be taken in by a dipstick like you laddie... AshleighP - 16 Jan 2017 - 19:08:58 - 7047 of 7048 Vast Resources - Expanding Horizons into Europe. - VAST The issue of indigenisation and political problems in Zimbabwe are listed in the chairman's statement in the interim results, so mention of it here is not really scaremongering given that the company recognise this risk themselves. VAST won't be booted off AIM on 31st Jan if no new adviser is appointed - the shares are suspended and cancellation occurs after another 30 days if no new adviser is found. If they can't find a replacement by the end of the month, then i'd be surprised if they could find one in another 30 days. I don't want them to fail to find a new adviser - i've liked watching and trading them. The share price at present suggests to me that shareholders are optimistic of this being resolved, but then I thought Remain and Clinton would win, so what do I know. AshleighP - 16 Jan 2017 - 15:00:55 - 7033 of 7048 Vast Resources - Expanding Horizons into Europe. - VAST I've sold my holding at 0.323 - a new NOMAD may well be appointed, but i'm not risking being stuck with shares in an unlisted company. I've bought and sold VAST several times as a trading stock, so not really worried about the long term prospects. If a new NOMAD does get appointed, then trading opportunities will still be there. Bookwormrobert - thanks for your sensible posts (i'm usually a lurker, so have read all posts for several months) AshleighP - 09 Jul 2014 - 11:11:26 - 6654 of 8186 Daniel Stewart - a new investment bank hits AIM! - DAN I'm not sure MMs are playing tricks. I bought some via three separate trades, two of which moved the price. I figure that more speculators will be along and I can sell the ones I have for a profit. I have lost a huge amount on these before, so only looking for a quick turnaround and not making the mistake of holding them for a long time again. At least the news suggests they are not going bust just yet, though i'm sure that will happen eventually. Recent news has shown DAN handing two new floats and a broker appointment - not much, but will keep them ticking over a bit. I guess we wait for the results on the last possible day before the deadline. AshleighP - 17 Dec 2013 - 09:20:00 - 6466 of 8186 Daniel Stewart - a new investment bank hits AIM! - DAN LR4850 I did receive notice of the AGM via my broker before I sold my holding. I toyed with the idea of attending, but decided the expense of the train fare was a waste for these boys and would only add to my loss. I remember the one and only AGM I did attend, where I was the only attendee that asked any questions. The whole meeting was over quickly and Shea didn't seem keen on hanging around to meet the shareholders present. Shea is only interested in lining his own pockets and I suspect has no qualms about who loses out along the way. I wish i'd seen this for what it was earlier, rather than hanging on in denial.

fairlight: My take - Bracknor forward sold 400 million shs last week and reduced the share price so they can get a low average for their conversion of loan notes - they then converted after 5 lower share price days (to get a huge profit)the contract terms state the conversion is 10% below the average lowest share price for 5 days. They have now covered the forward selling - they will wait until the share price rises and do it again with the 4-500 million shs they can convert from the remaining loan notes and warrants. This type of funding is never long term and they will make 800 grand plus out of this deal in a matter of weeks leaving VAST share total diluted by 25% all for £1.5 mil cash. The share price dropped from .38p to .22p due to this in a matter of days - what happens when the next 400 mil are forward sold? Everybody happy?

richie32: Exercise and Cancellation of Warrants and Issue of Equity Vast Resources plc / Ticker: VAST / Index: AIM / Sector: Mining 19 April 2016 Vast Resources plc ("Vast" or the "Company") (AIM: VAST) Exercise and Cancellation of Warrants and Issue of Equity Vast Resources plc, the AIM-listed mining company with operations in Romania and Zimbabwe, announces that, pursuant to the subscription agreement entered into with Crede CG III Ltd ("Crede") on 4 January 2016, Crede has elected to convert 26,281,209 warrants issued under the initial subscription ("Warrants") into ordinary shares of 0.1p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") (the "Conversion"). Notice of conversion of the Warrants was received by Vast on 12 April 2016. Under the terms of the financing announced on 4 January 2016, Crede may exercise the Warrants by exchanging them for new Ordinary Shares on payment of a subscription price equal to the nominal value of the Ordinary Shares, subject to the offset of a commission obligation due to Crede equal to ten per cent. of amounts subscribed for by Crede ("Commission"). The number of new Ordinary Shares to be issued to Crede is calculated by dividing the aggregate Black-Scholes Value of the Warrants (as described below) by the closing bid price of Ordinary Shares on the trading day two days prior to the date on which the Warrant exercise notice is issued, being 0.3p. Accordingly, the Warrants convert into 60,000,000 new Ordinary Shares on payment to the Company of £54,000 being the net subscription price after deduction of Commission. The Company is, in addition, due to receive £84,384 as a subscription price net of all Commission for Ordinary Shares issued in exchange for previously announced Crede warrant conversions. The exercise of Warrants issued to Crede on 4 January 2016 was intended to be covered by the Company's authority to dis-apply pre-emption rights in respect of the issue of new Ordinary Shares as had been in place prior to the General Meeting on 9 February 2016 (the "Pre-Existing Authorities"). Due to the recent fall in the Company's share price, the Pre-Existing Authorities have been insufficient to meet the conversion of the Warrants issued to Crede on 4 January 2016. The Company has therefore agreed to issue 22,581,991 Ordinary Shares to Crede under the Pre-Existing Authorities and, in respect of the balance of the new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the Conversion, being 37,418,009 Ordinary Shares, the respective Warrants have been cancelled and the Company will issue to Crede 37,418,009 new Ordinary Shares under the authorities granted to it in respect of the Crede financing, as approved by shareholders at the General Meeting of 9 February 2016 (the "Crede Authorities"). Following the issue of the 37,418,009 new Ordinary Shares, the remaining number of Ordinary Shares which can be issued to Crede on a non-preemptive basis under the Crede Authorities is 1,034,010,991. Following this exercise and cancellation Crede will hold a remaining balance of 38,148,819 Warrants out of the 156,250,000 issued to it under the initial subscription. The Company notes that any further issues of Ordinary Shares to Crede, in the absence of further shareholder authorities being granted, will need to be covered by the Crede Authorities to the extent they remain. The Company has agreed that, in respect of any further exercises or conversions of the warrants issued to Crede on 4 January 2016, it will agree to cancel the relevant warrants and issue the applicable number of Ordinary Shares under the Crede Authorities on the terms set out above. Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange plc for 60,000,000 new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on the AIM market with admission expected to occur on or around 25 April 2016 ("Admission"). The new Ordinary Shares rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares. Following Admission, the issued ordinary share capital of Vast will consist of 2,375,604,639 Ordinary Shares. There are no Ordinary Shares held in treasury. 2,375,604,639 represents the total number of voting rights in the Company and may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they can determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

showme01: Great news for the shareholders of Vast Resources (VAST) this morning as Vast announced that it was withholding consent to the second tranche of the Crede financing. If no-one minds, I’d like to take some of the credit! I wrote about the shocking funding deal less than two weeks ago (HERE), explaining why it was a “death spiral on steroids” and although, at the time, Roy Pitchford, CEO, seemed to be a bit bemused as to why the share price was dropping, it was quite clear to many who understood the financing that a falling share price and extensive dilution was always the likely result of the deal. To be fair, I hadn’t spotted this get-out. Vast had to consent to the tranche if Crede becomes interested in more than 25% of the share capital on a fully diluted basis, which includes warrants. Accordingly, with the share price bid at 0.23p on Friday, Crede would have been entitled to over a billion shares and warrants, taking them over that 25% limit. Hat-tip to mbarnes, who I expect is the same Matt Barnes who commented on my earlier piece, as I think he was the first to set out the argument on the bulletin boards, as far as I am aware. Vast also announced that it is in discussions to replace the £1.25 million funding on more favourable terms and also mention that it will engage with shareholders interested in participating in future funding arrangements – go Roy! It is made clear, however, that the agreement with Crede remains in place and that tranches 3 and 4 will be available in 90 and 180 days’ time respectively. However, one less tranche of this sort of dilution is significant and, importantly, it gives Roy and his team another three months to eke out some good corporate news to increase the share price so that it is in a better shape to deal with those latter tranches. As I write, the share price has, unsurprisingly, opened strongly and is up about 50% at 0.37p. The whole thing gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling. I started writing on Shareprophets at the beginning of the year as I felt that it was one of the few places that one could comment on poor funding deals, dodgy management behaviours, poor corporate governance etc and I hoped that by highlighting some of these things, it might make a difference. Well, it looks like it can make a difference. Look, I’m not totally naïve, I’m sure that Roy and his team would have worked it out in the end and I wasn’t the only person to mention it - the bulletin board ranting was key too - but just please let me have five minutes of thinking that my little butterfly wing flapping made a tiny difference to the powers-that-be at Vast, however small. I doubt I’ll be on Crede’s Christmas card list though! - See more at: hxxp://www.shareprophets.com/views/19861/vast-resources-well-done-roy-you-worked-it-out-in-the-end#sthash.qJGrGo4h.dpuf
