No matter what the conjecture this will be around 1.3 ish until overhang goes.

Not market cap of £30m but gross income of £15m p. a., say £10m net of costs, with a conservative pe of 12 thats a market cap of £120m and share price of 12p. All very rough figures but more accurate than £30m.

If that is true then this is a sell. I am not sure but historical evidence seems to agree with you on the balance on probability.

At some point, as a 20k producer (taking account of 51%), and with 1m oz at Salinbas, this should re-rate to a market cap of around £30m. Whether or not that's with a billion shares at 3p, or two billion at 1.5p, as is the historical nature of this company, is the big question. There's currently no indication that management give two hoots about shareholder value sadly.

I expect the next big move up to clear 2p and go for 2.5p - 3p. If not then there is something seriously wrong with this that maybe a lot of investors do not understand. I sold 2/3's a while back and now have 1/3 and so far that seems like a sensible call to have made. Now I have to decide whether I hold 1/3 or sell as that capital could be used elsewhere to make actual profits for me rather than nothing with Ariana.

I see on Euronews that Germany is now warning against trade with Turkey in view of the deteriorating political situation there. I particularly noted the additional warning that the Turkish regime could even appropriate any foreign company that it considered might contain any 'subversive' element. It is this background tension that I am sure is weighing heavily on sentiment at the moment and holding back the share price

Hopefully he takes the time to read forums like this. AAU needs to move to being a producer and not just chasing new prospects and then talking them up via RNS releases. Some folks have been waiting a long time for this company to make the transition. Gold fever?

No problem Plasybryn but like I say that misvaluation is not without it's reasons. Time will tell if Kerim can walk the walk and actually add shareholder value instead of destroying it. He has to turn that raising money in to value something he has failed to do recently.

Some valid points raised here. I lost faith in management and sold majority of holding for a decent profit, as stated at the time (before green-eyed monsters appear)! I have retained free shares and would add if I thought management was better, sadly I am not impressed by them. If Gold rises and AAU lags behind, I may add, but there are much better outfits out there. :))

Thanks soulsauce. One can but try & open people's eyes to the misvaluation which probably during Q4, as gold strengthen's further, will narrow.

Plasybryn I applaud your efforts but it looks like for the most part either holders are not bothered or likely, given what has happened here, there are few left to take any interest. And therein lies the problem regarding the valuation. A lot of valuation comes from sentiment, as well as fundamentals, and unfortunately kerim has a great tendency to kill sentiment. Each time he loses trust, more people leave and less have the desire to come back knowing his history. This is lost on him unfortunately and so he continues to tap the highly dilutive methods and then try to convince individuals at agm's and cosy meetings that he had no alternative and we have all this news due that will turn it around.

British multinational bank Standard Chartered sees gold more likely to be at $1,300 per ounce by the end of the year than at $1,200. In a report issued by the bank this week, precious-metals analyst Suki Cooper hiked Standard’s fourth-quarter forecast to $1,300 from the previous $1,230. “We believe prices are more likely to breach $1,300/oz than test the downside by year-end…,R21; the report said. Standard cites several reasons for its upbeat outlook for gold: a more dovish US Fed, less likely increases in 10-year US Treasury yields, and indications that India’s new Goods and Services Tax regime will be a temporary speed bump and not a fundamental structural change for the gold market. It’s not clear sailing for gold, the bank said, as the market can be affected by the Fed’s balance-sheet reduction, slower inflation than expected, and glitches in execution of India’s GST plan. Standard expects one more rate hike from the US Fed this year, but anticipates that there will only be two additional rate bumps in 2018 instead of the planned three.

Despite the asset in the ground and a successful production launch it seems the only thing that could lift the price would be a PM rally. A sad reflection on the efforts of Kerim and his team.

If there is no return on investment then Kerim is basically a geologist; how much are they paid?

I hope you have a look at the Hummingbird valuation slide - my post 6329. The Second Tailings was due to be complete by year end allowing greater capacity. From the photo & comment, looks like progress is well advanced.

Biggles, I'd hazard a guess that a salary of circa £60k a year would immediately align Kerim and Micky D closer to most shareholders than where they are now; the hard work that goes in to earning that, the adverse effect that persistently poor raisings has on a shareholder's holding when they have done their research and decided to 'buy in' to what management - and particularly Kerim Sener here - have said, etc. (I think it was 5 January 2017 when the company removed the comment from their twitter profile - ie formal commentary made by the company in the public domain - that it was not actually a gold producer in Q4 2016) If Kerim and Mickey D had managed to buy shares on a salary of £60k, do you reckon that they might have given more thought to when and how they would have executed the raisings? Both Kerim and Mickey D either are, or have been, involved in other enterprises whilst still working for and being paid by AAU; for ease view their linkedin profiles. I doubt that they / their families are in any way in a perilous financial position even with their substantial holdings here... AAU got through the 'credit crunch' and following which there has been little genuine prospects of their failing to secure the necessary funds to see this through to commercialisation. Of course, this then sees their wages paid and which then, I would hazard a guess, assists in their being able to purchase new shares to offset any dilutory factor from any new raising. Kerim and Mickey D aren't doing too shabbily out of AAU. The same cannot be said of shareholders; bar those, including myself, who purchased some / topped up around the 0.7p mark - considering the 'progress' that had been made at that time, why was the share price so low?? You may well be right re their salaries not being particularly high for AIM and, on a general level, I don't really have an issue with that. But when shareholders again seem to be treated in a manner that seems to have become customary over the past years, then that is when I start to get a bit miffed. But especially when the level of such salaries appears to enable certain directors to top up their holdings to offset any dilutory effect that the raising that they have overseen has had and then, perhaps, hope that someone falls for the old 'director buying' positive sign / they're one of us malarkey. Win-win for some but not all? Kerim and Mickey D will get rich - if they are not already?? - but to treat short / medium / long term shareholders as they have faired over the past years, increasingly reflects extremely poorly on them as directors of a publicly listed entity and individuals, in my opinion.

8rad: In the AR & A Michael had 26,050,000 shares. He now has 32,673,077. That is a reasonable increase. Kerim has gone from 13,076,868 to 14,352,252. I don't think they are wealthy people (yet!) and so you can't expect them to buy more than their finances allow. Nonetheless this is a further statement of confidence in future value.

Did you see this by SGD27 posted on LSE? Slide 27 of this recent Hummingbird presentation suggests that Ariana may be significantly undervalued (or perhaps will be, once fully into production), especially as the MCap is now even lower : hxxp://hummingbirdresources.co.uk/_downloads/Hummingbird_Q3_Presentation.pdf

Yes Plas it usually signals a buying spree but when the CEO spends so little then you must have your doubts.

Is that because nobody knows what the hell commercial means with respect to how things are performing?
