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 :-)

desertjoe: I am not belittling the Chairman's purchase of millions of shares. I think it gives great confidence in any Company when executives and employers have "skin" in themselves. You can also speculate whether the time for them to buy is when the share price has fallen and whether or not they (the bosses in control) envisage making gains on the shares in due course. Our share price has somewhat taken a tumble and I am slightly surprised that Kerim hasn't bought in himself....unless he (not unreasonably) has hopes of a bonus share issue in due course based on future success. Many times I have read that one should not get personally so attached to shares that you get "tunnel vision" and never think of failure. There have been many AIM-listed firms (especially in the oilies and miners) where punters have been seriously ripped off by those running the Companies. Always the same format = never ending promises at AGMs and presentations of "Jam Tomorrow" while the bosses lap at the cream trough for as long as they can until everything comes apart. imho prime examples were Peter Landau (RRL and several other Companies) and the Williams(es) of similarly named Arian Silver (AGQ). Sometimes the final crunch gets dragged out and is preceded by "directors resigning for personal reasons" or "consolidation of shares" or simply replacing one debt with a much bigger one to enable......precisely what??? Meanwhile the salaries continue! Let us not forget that these guys at the time were considered real savants and had lots of professional qualifications plus accountants and lawyers in tow. So, in a nutshell, Caveat Emptor at all times. Thus, Arry is right to have opinions even if they upset others.

bigglesbingham: It depends on your take on his objectives. I want the business to be ran well , to develop new resources, to produce above expectations. I firmly believe he has achieved these goals. I believe that share price value follows fundamentals. You appear to have a different set of criteria for the M.D. ie to get the share price up and sod everything else. He could shout from the rooftops and exaggerate claims in order for share price to spike and short term traders make a quick buck but that's not my criteria here , I'm in for the long term. To answer your question directly if someone isn't achieving their goals then we do the upmost to ensure they do. If that fails then both parties tend to agree to part company.

edgein: Another example for you. SOLG, there was a bunch of us holding while the share price was stuck under 4p. Time and time again they'd announce 600m-1000m intercepts and the share price wouldn't budge. Very little trading volume, little or no market interest. Then they announced funding at 7p per share and everyone wanted in, 20p in a flash and moved on to 40p (£500m cap was outrageous for a modestly funded non-producer). I sold out around 20p as that was fair value at the time. Once this breaks out over 2p most likely everyone will want in and there'll be 100 posts per hour on the bb's. As for AAU Kerim just has to keep doing what he's doing, get production stable and then up at RR (to the 50,000 Oz target). Use that or a jv to prove up more Oz at Salinbas and if it still hasn't re-rated sell the lot to a larger company for an outrageous sum of money MARL style. Regards, Ed.

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.

nov31: CC, Kerim has provided the company with enormous value - he has managed the long term exploration, development and production path with enormous determination, perseverance and skill. There is no doubt he deserves a bonus and some share options, but it would have been easy to signsl his ambition on the share price by staging options [as Biggles alludes to] at prices between 1.55p and 3p or so. Will any of us begrudge Kerim exercising some options priced at 2.25p, 2.5p or 2.75p as the share price exceeds those hurdles ...not at all. However, loading up with options when the share price is at an all time low at a price of 1.55p, and at a price lower than many shareholders have paid is very cynical. If I sound disappointed it's because generally people don't like to feel they've been taken for a mug. The BOD are well aware of PI views, they've chosen not to listen. Shame...let's hope 4th qtr figures help us to forgive and forget.

plasybryn: Roco on iii has highlighted how SML did it earlier this year. Chalk & Cheese. This is how to do it. UNEQUIVOCAL TARGETS/AMBITIONS Strategic Minerals plc (SML) The Board has received a number of enquiries, from shareholders and the general market, as to the future direction of the Company and how the Board and Management would be incentivised to achieve market capitalisation and share price growth. Board has proposed the implementation of an options programme designed to incentivise the Board and Management of the Company to target, over the next five years, a market capitalisation of £100m (currently £25m) and progressing onto a share price of £0.10 (currently £0.02p) Accordingly, the Board has reviewed market capitalisation and share price targets, over a five year time horizon, and has developed an Options Programme, consisting of three Tranches, designed to incentivise Directors and Management to achieve market capitalisation and share price growth over this period. The three Tranches and vesting conditions proposed are: Tranche Number of Options Vesting Price Exercise Price Maturity Date 1 120,000,000 £0.055 £0.0275 30 June 2020 2 55,000,000 £0.075 £0.0375 30 June 2021 3 25,000,000 £0.100 £0.0500 30 June 2022

bapodra_investments: I think if this share price does not start motoring by the end of January 2018 then there is something seriously wrong. If by end of March 2018, this share price is not above 2p then 'alarm bells' will be ringing. The current share price should be based on what the market thinks around 'six months in advance (future)'. On this basis alone the share price performance is worrying. Either the market is concerned about either the level of debt being increased, further capital raisings leading to dilution or lack of investment funds showing any interest in investing or simply cannot due to size. If anything the fear is that any one of the above could lead to the share price falling!
