Do you think 121 appealed to many new investors or was it more of the same? Not much trading activity so far?

Massive rush to buy once Kerim start taking to potential investors at Mining 121 today?:-D

It seems to me that the old slow coach Kerim has been transformed into a tiger going into this merger. Its going to happen and the speed of it will leave the naysayers standing by the kerbsides. It's make your mind up time folks. You can go with the deal but I don't think you are going to get the shares any cheaper by waiting. In fact you might have to pay considerably more. In the latest interview Kerim mentions the ASX is the place where other successful Zim miners are listed and investors find them there. Over to you Soul...

We shouldn’t have to wait for such a scenario, Charles. A CEO worth his salt takes every ‘weak’ share issued for the purpose of acquisitions/mergers as a ‘kick in the proverbial’ and wants to minimise that experience by maintaining the highest possible share price, period. Whilst the movies often stereotype an accomplished CEO as some uncaring, hard-nosed individual, this is often a gross injustice to the reality. Many successful CEOs take a great delight in seeing lives transformed and futures secured by investors in their company who reap the benefits of a substantive increase in share price. I could go on, but enough already.

PS to be fair, there are not many accomplished CEOs on AIM!

Rennicks,

I wish I shared your positivity but alas I do not conflate success for Ariana with rewards for shareholders.

As we all know, mining is an expensive business and the BoD has made it clear it wants to expand rapidly 'in the next decade'. Even with two mines on line, will enough cash be generated to provide dividends for shareholders or will the BoD keep saying that the cash is needed for the expansion of the company which is a distinct possibility. Such a scenario will not attract new investors in the short term and thus with no new investors and no dividends, where is the reward for shareholders going to come from ?

As ever, this is purely my opinion.

The last sentence here is 25k underpinned /guaranteed for ten years. My point is they could equally have said 12.5k underpinned for 20years. They should in my opinion given a more realistic target for next year and next few years. Capacity 25k at Kiz and 30k at tarsvan. So realistic to say underpinned 25k 10 years but we anticipate target of X for next few years anticipating extended minelife in due course. Investors would have a better understanding of what income we will be receiving short to medium term. Bottom line existing shareholders know production will be around 40 k June 24 to June 25 but new investors don't. I really don't think the RNS is well worded . The results are excellent BUT that has NOT been communicated.

I suspect Biggles is totally on the ball. It is impressive how many long term investors have just stuck it out. But in my book, patience has been tested to the extreme, and the Co. hasn't helped shareholders one bit by not providing clear expectations of timescales (a simple Gantt chart would do the trick).
But that apart, I agree it is all too easy to allow frustrations to cloud one's vision if the end prize is worth waiting for.
Having said that, if this was my Co. I would be embarrassed to see it go below 4p, especially 3p and well what can one say about below 2p! It is hard to fathom.
The Co. hasn't shown any empathy with investors or developed any sort of strategy to take advantage of such low prices - buy backs, director buying etc.
But as I sit here, surely we must now be close to very transformational news?
Is Tavsan going to go into production in Quarter 2 as promised? Will we get a long overdue update soon?
Is the upgrade Resource/Reserve and extended Life of Mines for Tavsan & Kiziltepe going to be communicated in Q1/Q2 as promised? There seems no rush and certainly no information on how matters are proceeding.
Will we finally get some proper indication of the potential at Salinbas and Hizarliyayla or will these continue to be delayed as more drilling is recommended? How long can this really go on? How many years ago was it when we were first fed the carrot that this could be exceptional; even another Hot Maden type discovery?

I must say I am very encouraged by WTR and Mentor Demi. It seems to me that he could be the sort of proactive, hands on CEO we need at AAU. He shows enthusiasm and passion. He puts himself about and appears to grab opportunities to promote his Co. Ariana should have him on the main Board.

Obviously the hardening gold price will encourage investors to start looking at undervalued miners and explorers, so perhaps we can sit back and wait for the pack to discover us and forget the disappointing lack of proactivity from our apparent complacent Board.

Perhaps some investors are however supportive of this low price, waiting for the new tax year and the opportunity to use 2024/25 ISA/SIPP allowances.

Fingers crossed these next few weeks witnesses a real turn around on many fronts.

Should we ask for proof? Is this misleading or untruthful. The tolerance of the big investors beggars believe at times. The blazen arrogance of the directors is at time hard to stomach. Sorry just my views. But no one seems to worry that the Co makes so little effort to emphasise or support investments made by such loyal investors.Are we all being lead a merry dance or will value out as they say. How many years has it taken - will it take.Quote :- "with an exceptional track-record of creating value for its shareholders through its interests in active mining projects and investments in exploration companies."

I think many of us have been worried about the strategy, especially as four years have drifted away since the dilution of assets. And I keep asking myself, what is there that is tangible to see for it? Has the new strategy played out as they expected? I would love to know? The market would love to know. Look at the share price chart.The market hasn't bought it.
Where is the acceleration we were promised? Wasn't the cash raised from the dilution supposed to facilitate that?
I almost get the impression that the Board were becoming bored with the core cash producing assets like Kiziltepe,( Kepez & Kizilcukur) Tavsan, Salinbas/Ardale, Hizarliyayla and starting to move their eye off the ball towards unproven, higher risk assets like Kosovo, Venus Minerals, Project Leopard, Asgard investments (Panther Metals, Pallas Resources & Annamite Resources) and now Rockover Holdings, Zimbabwe.
Investors have shown amazing levels of trust in Kerim although some think he would be better as a Technical Director with a more Corporate CEO at the helm. I don't know what MdV has achieved. Chris Sangster appears to be supporting the WTR efforts of Mentor (hopefully good long term value being created) and of course we have a part-time Finance director in William Payne, who I doubt adds much value above that. The strategy and its implementation seems to be in the hands of Kerim with no one strong enough to challenge him or question the direction or lack of progress.
If they get some good results from Hizarliyayla and can then monetise that asset, I'm sure we will all become very happy & positive, but the latest Update this week hardly wets the appetite for something exciting on the horizon.
Kerim will do another video or Investor chat soon and will bluff his way through with investors making allowances as usual until weeks later they realise it was all words and delays.
Come on you guys who understand and support the strategy, please communicate some confidence as to how it is going to play out, as I was left underwhelmed by the RNS this week, and just when our friends from Starvest arrive with their AAU shares looking to be convinced this will be a growth & income share in short order.

But it hasn't worked for Starvest Soul. They are being liquidated and the Ariana shares returned to investors alongside GGP. If the AAU Board asked investors if they wanted to invest in high risk regimes like Zimbabwe, what do you think the response would be? If they said do you want us to put build a 100,000 oz p.a. high grade mine at Salinbas on a 33% partnership with Proccea & Ozaltin what do we think investors would say.? I'm not sure i know where AAU is going anymore.
