Improving chance of stability in the DRC seems to be one factor behind the share price movement in Banro Gold. This article is pretty encouraging and includes some general points: http://www.resourceinvestor.com/pebble.asp?relid=15646 And the 'yes' vote in the constitutional referendum seems assured: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/4558394.stm

Yes - the referendum on the constitution appears to be on track for a substantial 'yes' vote, too. Will put the D into the DRC, and lower risk factors, we hope!

Placing completed. Note there are now 77,185,331 Class 'A' common shares in issue. 'This funding concludes an important year for Adastra, in which we have made great strides in the progression of the Kolwezi Tailings Project,' said Tim Read, President and Chief Executive of Adastra. 'The funds raised will be used to finalise the Definitive Feasibility Study and the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment, both expected for completion in March 2006, as well as for other general corporate purposes. The stage is now set for 2006, which promises to be an exciting and active year as we enter the next stage in Kolwezi's evolution.'

Interesting article; but 'next two years' ... will be a glut when ours gets cracking? Cobalt production setbacks in Zambia and recent problems at Falconbridge's high grade refinery in Norway, against a backdrop of anticipated soaring demand, could result in severe shortages of cobalt over the next two years, according to producers, traders and consumers. http://metalsplace.com/metalsnews/?a=3261

A rare mention in the national press (Times, market report): Adastra Minerals perked up 3½p to 85p on appointing Royal Bank of Scotland to arrange the commercial bank tranche of its project financing for its Kolwezi cobalt venture in the Democratic Republic of Congo. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/newspaper/0,,2740-1922958,00.html

Appointment of RBS RNS Number:4712V Adastra Minerals Inc 12 December 2005 Adastra Mandates Royal Bank of Scotland In Kolwezi Financing Trading: TSX and AIM: AAA LONDON, U.K. (December 12th, 2005) Adastra Minerals Inc. ("Adastra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has awarded Royal Bank of Scotland plc ("RBS") the mandate to arrange the untied commercial bank tranche of the project financing for the Kolwezi Tailings Project ("Kolwezi" or the "Project") in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The mandate agreement has been executed by RBS and Adastra's wholly owned subsidiary Congo Mineral Developments Ltd ("CMD"). CMD is the majority shareholder of Kingamyambo Musonoi Tailings SARL ("KMT"), the company that will be the borrower and operate the Project. CMD is responsible for carrying out the Definitive Feasibility Study and the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment, and for organising the financing for the Project. "This important mandate forms a key component of the project financing of Kolwezi", said Tim Read, President and Chief Executive of Adastra. "The untied commercial bank tranche will be for US $60-75 million with an eight year maturity and will fund some 20% of the Project's total capital requirements. We are delighted to have the support of such a pre-eminent bank in driving the Kolwezi project forward." The RBS appointment follows the recent announcement by the International Finance Corporation (part of the World Bank Group) and the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa of their participation as shareholders in the Project. The two institutions are also expected to be important lenders to the Project, in addition to the untied commercial bank tranche. Separately, Adastra and its project finance adviser, Rothschild, have held detailed discussions with a wide range of public and private sector financial institutions. The positive response has enabled Adastra to commence detailed planning of the financing of Kolwezi. "The Project remains firmly on course," said Tim Read. "The Definitive Feasibility Study and the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment are expected to be completed in March 2006, the negotiations for the power contract are well advanced, and there has been considerable progress towards securing long term off-take agreements for the cobalt and copper production. Our objective is to start construction of the Project in the second half of 2006." About Adastra Adastra is an international mining company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and on AIM, in London, under the symbol "AAA". It is currently developing mineral assets in Central Africa, including the Kolwezi Tailings Project and the possible rehabilitation of the Kipushi zinc mine in the DRC. Adastra's growth strategy emphasizes the creation of shareholder value through the development of world-class resources in stable or stabilizing political environments. About the Kolwezi Project Adastra's Kolwezi Project consists of two dams containing 112.8 million tonnes of oxide tailings, grading 1.49% copper and 0.32% cobalt, as determined by Dr. Isobel Clark of Geostokos Limited, a "qualified person" as defined by the Canadian Securities Administrators' NI 43-101. This resource has the potential to host one of the world's largest and lowest cost cobalt producers. A definitive feasibility study is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2006. If this study is favourable, construction is expected to commence before year-end, with first production in mid 2008. The project is expected to produce initially approximately 5,500 tonnes of cobalt and 30,000 tonnes of copper annually, at which level of output Kolwezi has a mine life in excess of 50 years. Such a project would generate significant taxation, royalty and dividend revenues to the Government, as well as providing local employment and contributing to the regeneration of the DRC's copper belt infrastructure.

It's pleasing to see today's news that they've started raising the project finance, having appointed Royal Bank of Scotand to raise 20% (upwards of $60 million).

I've just been speaking to a friend of mine who is Congolese. He says Kalemie is quite a big town. The infrastructure and communications in the region are not good, partly due to years of war in Eastern DR Congo, so it may take a while for us to hear about casualties. If I find out something more definitive in the next few days I'll post it here.

The share price dropped on Toronto open. The earthquake near Kalemie (see map) may be a factor. It seems -fortunately- that there were no reported casualties. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/4499938.stm

Arf, yes indeed: usually the ones I don't buy rocket ... but I needn't go on! The Canada discussion board haven't 'explained' the RNS, so presumably the obvious reading is the correct one - till we hear otherwise. Mind, it's a pretty strong indication that the directors feel the share price is far too low. If so, it's doing the trick!

jonwig, OK, if they're newly-issued shares, that would only have a point if not everybody can do it. Presumably that would be the case as the hostile bidder would have a large chunk of the company, and it's everybody else who can get newly-issued shares. Hopefully it would be a sizeable fraction, such as the option to double your existing shareholding. As I keep saying to myself, you can't predict the stock market. I held these shares for many months last year and this year, then sold for reasons not connected with Adastra. I leaped back on board recently (which I had been very keen to do for a long while), as it looked like this bandwagon was starting to roll. The share price seemed to be drifting in the last few days, so I was expecting that to continue. So, just as I had given up expecting a share-price rise, it went up... BOOM! This morning's spectacular 11p rise. I observe yet again the lack of any relationship between expectations and actual stock-market behaviour.

Arf, I would understand it as newly-issued shares. The hostile bidder would be precluded from these rights, according to the RNS. The announcement doesn't say how many shares you'd be entitled to purchase. It can't be an unlimited number, obviously! The Stockhouse board is linked in the header. 'Canadian board'. It's not busy, but is informative. I read it once or twice a week.

Where can I see the Stockhouse board? I haven't heard about that before. I wonder where these extra shares are coming from. If it's new share issues, it might have no practical effect. All holders could (for example) double the number of shares held if the company issued new shares to everyone, or had a share split. Each holder would then have more shares but would still own the same fraction of the company. If that's not the case, where are these extra shares coming from? Would I have the right to buy cheap shares from the hostile bidder? That would make it more costly for a hostile bidder, which is probably the intention. It would also allow current shareholders to buy cheap shares then (presumably) sell them to the hostile bidder at the market price. This is possibly what is intended, creating a way for current shareholders get some benefit from the takeover. I do like the bit about big delivery of shareholder value in the coming year.

another canadian i follow, ymba (aim)/ym (tsx) did the same thing when it believed it had got too cheap/vunerable - or that's how i read it. they did purchase some of their shares at that time.
