crossfirecssf: In my view, the market is showing that it far prefers to see action rather than empty words when it comes to intent regarding dilution. At the end of the day, as I've said a million times, it doesn't matter how successful and profitable a company is,... if it issues shares at the same rate that it grows, shareholders are not going to make a penny on their investment,...simple as that. This is action, and I hope that Kerim appreciates and understands why the share price has dropped by over 90+ and now that the company are on a firm footing, is going to work to reverse that process to help loyal shareholders claw back at least some of the shareholder value that's been lost to them relentlessly and steadily throughout the long period of drought, whilst exploration and development took place. I fully understand that explorers require funding via the market, but now that the cash is flowing in and it's no longer required, let's have some of that value back in the form of share concentration. I don't expect them to spend valuable Salinbas exploration funds on buy-backs, but steady, small amounts like this will transform sentiment in this company and it will become seen as a small cap with serious intent,... a real player. Institutions aren't as green behind the gills as your average private investor (me), and they simply won't touch a company that uses shares as a day to day method of funding. Why would they? This action I see as a deliberate statement issued directly to such big players, that this is a company with serious intent to grow not only in size, but critically, to grow shareholder return,... the ONLY, I repeat ONLY reason investors invest. I'm strongly in favour of this action, and as the directors see with their own eyes the effect that it has on their own holdings and as proof positive of the effect on sentiment, that it continues as a slow and steady but definitive trend.

soulsauce: And who is guaranteeing a higher share price? Spend £65k to hope the share price goes up. A deal may be cash and shares but don't you think whatever it is will want money spending on it?

bigglesbingham: Coming on to exploration, several things have always concerned me regarding Salinbas and those are if it's such a potential good asset then why did eldorado let it go and with all the pictures shown the terrain looks extremely difficult and impact on weather. Fortunately elderado was represented by senior employee who had been with the company for 13 years so I asked him. His response was they have some excellent prospects all around world and they felt that they were spreading themselves a little too thinly they have much larger prospects 4-5m and were happy to pass salinbas to Ariana for 2% royalties and he pointed out they own 3% of aau so it's also in their interests for aau to do well. I tongue in cheek said so aau do all the work then you snap them up for a song at this silly share price he laughed but didn't answer!! Incidentally being snapped up at this artificially low market cap appears to be a real concern for Kerim as he made several off the cuff comments which alluded to this. I also asked Kerim why he felt elderado let the asset go so cheaply and he said elderado had control of exploration and he felt they hadn't appreciated the true potential because their drilling hadn't been done in the correct places. Which brings me to the exploration potential of salinbas. Ironstorm this is what you don't get through an rns. The enthusiasm when Kerim and Zack explain the geology of the area is unbelievable when you compare the downbeat interviews and rnss which results in many on here tearing their hair out saying please be more enthusiastic. I told Kerim I understand how he likes to play down things and let the facts speak for themselves but when I had one to ones with him his enthusiasm positivity was unrecognisable and I told him. He said the areas they are exploring are amazing in terms of potential. When Zack started on salinbas there was no holding him back he explained it is viewed totally differently now and gave me a load of geology speak but the ultimate conclusion what that the area amounts to is a perfect storm in gold exploration. I suggested that it's all very well finding x million ounces but the terrain gives me a concern. He explained that there is an area where the mine could be built and Kerim said the same. What they also pointed out which I didn't know was hot madden which a third was sold for $175 million to sandstorm has a river running over the site and a whole village so they have to redirect a river and relocate a whole village; point being salinbas will offer engineering challenges but these can be overcome. The mine would be low enough that the winter weather would not be greatly prolonged.

paul280i: Plasybryn, I mentioned dividends as a way of trying to move this share price in the right direction. Yes, I did invest for capital creation but as yet, even after the discovery of several new valuable assets this share price has not moved. I know AAU is worth many time the MC and would like to see the BOD publishing a plan to address the share price I have been invested here for many years but still cannot always understand the reasons behind some of the actions of the BOD.

charles clore: biggles - I appreciate the offer. I hear what you are saying about the share price stagnation but to be honest I would have expected a slow but steady increase with all the achievements of the past 2 years. I can understand how dilution has affected progress but not to the extent that we have experienced. The directors didn't do PIs any favours awarding themselves big pay rises and bonuses in the face of share price stagnation and I think AAU lost a number of long standing shareholders because of it. We knew recovery was going to be slow but then they engaged Panmure Gordon to manage PR and I thought 'wow, they will surely write up the company highlighting all the achievements, production performance and future potential in a way that will attract big name investors'. I am so far disappointed - what has PG done for us? What does the company ask of them and what is their brief? The directors have taken millions of new shares and options at rock bottom prices in placings without offering the same deals to long standing private investors. I feel that this would have offered some small compensation for loyally holding on these past few years. Biggles, these are just some of my thoughts and I'm sure other people will be happy to contribute to help you prep for your meeting. Hope this is of some use.

the_debt_collector: Ask yourself why AAU share price will not respond to operational 'progress' It's simple, they are itching to do another bucket shop placing. What's more the market has latched on to the historic and never ending dilution. 1p target has not been met YET but if they place stock at the usual 15%-20% 'Belliss' discount it will not be far off :-)

kirbs4: Im not sure why people deem other AIM directors a suitable comparison? Isn't AAU what is important?I can't speak for other people but my gripe isn't with the value, or even with the base pay at all, it's with the timing and award of the bonus. £109,000 to £137,000 is a 25% hike in base, and the bonus was on top. During 2017 the share price dropped from 1.88p to 1.20p, a 36% drop. That's being generous as the share price was over 2p not long after the start of the year.Now the base pay i can handle as in reality that will have been linked to prior year performance and in 2016 the share price almost doubled. 25% could be seen as excessive but as a shareholder i can take that with an almost doubled share price.The bonus though came at the end of a dire year of bucket shop raising and a 36% drop in the share price demonstrating to me they are disconnected from shareholders. That lack of trust needs rebuilding and the rns released after a few shareholders spoke with the board did not commit to it not happening again, as some seem to have interpreted.

backmarker: surely the "bonus" is now history ? it was badly handled for sure. but shareholders have made their views known. is it worth discussing any more ? personally I don't think it had as much impact on share price or anything else as many on here seem to imply. the big issues impacting this and other miners are the PoG, and whether the company is likely to tap the market for funding. PoG is a bit uncertain at present, but I believe it will improve as the year goes on, but no fireworks, even once we pass 1380. AAU has poor recent history as regards funding, and despite the company's protestations we are close to self-funding I suspect there is nervousness re. what will happen with Salinbas - even though it's difficult to see any "bad" outcome here. So while operational profitability is very good, right now most of it is paying off loans as planned and only a small proportion coming back as "free cash". so the current state of play is "everything going to plan". if that is all already in the share price then maybe it is only a shift change away from that that is going to affect the share price one way or the other. Hence a major change in PoG, finding yet better grades at Kiz, proving up resources at Sal, a deal with a bigmoney partner, are the types of developments needed to shift the share price as ever, patience is required.

carcosa: The question that AAU investors need to consider is what, if any, irregular market activities have been going on with AAU. Personally, as a shareholder, I consider AAU market news flow to be responsible and accurate with relatively little 'fluff'. I also am convinced AAU is a 'real' company doing 'real' business i.e. the assets are tangible. However over the years the ramping/deramping statements issued on bulletin boards have at times been excessive and bring into question the goals of such people. However, is it any different to many small AIM shares?... Perhaps not. More likely individuals attempting to influence other investors. As morally reprehensible as BS but nevertheless 'fair game'. There has often been cries for more market news to be issued regarding AAU as some investors seek mob mentality to prop up their own convictions and moreover the share price for a day or a week. This, unfortunately, is the world of micro/small caps. So what will happen Monday to the share price? Perhaps nothing. Perhaps a mark down as it only takes a few investors to panic and exit to negatively affect the share price. Whatever it is there can be no way the events surrounding Beaufort Securities can be a positive for the company and its share price. If there is a mark down it will be like throwing the baby out with the bath water and thereby providing an opportunity for long term investors to accumulate a little bit more. If (and that is a big 'if')ever an investigation is launched into Beaufort Securities and AAU dating back many years, I feel that it will take years for any investigation to be published (if at all) and have no tangible effect of the company itself.
