zedder: Columbus Gold having a good day share price wise.
maxbubble: Minera IRL Swoops On Hidefield, Adding A Potential 70,000 Ounces Per Year Of Long Life Gold Production To Its Offering By Alastair Ford For some months now there has been a vague feeling in the market that something's been afoot with Hidefield Gold. No one's been quite sure what, but some of Hidefield's neighbours on the 350,000 ounce Don Nicolas gold project in Argentina seemed to detect a rising sense of expectancy coming across from the ground there as the South American winter rolled on. Work on Hidefield's ground has been largely hidebound for at least 18 months now, due primarily to cash constraints following the credit crunch and because the market has been unsure that a deposit of real substance exists there. Not so Courtney Chamberlain, executive chairman of Minera IRL, who's been familiar with the Hidefield ground since he worked on it during his time at Newcrest in the 1990s. Given that, and given Minera's current share price strength, it was perhaps no surprise that Courtney was able, on 20th October, to remove the market's uncertainty over Hidefield by announcing a £7.23 million recommended all-share offer from Minera IRL. As the market has come to know over the past couple of years, Courtney's a man to be reckoned with when it comes to junior mining. He steered Minera successfully through a slightly tricky period following the company's debut on the Aim in 2007, when a leading project was dropped, and then on through to the successful commissioning and commencement of very profitable mining at the Corihuarmi project in Peru. He's also not been shy about sallying forth and making acquisitions, driven, perhaps, by an awareness that the juicy margins and cashflow produced by Corihuarmi won't last too much longer. Corihuarmi is a great project, but it's small, and has a short life. In light of that salient fact, Minera IRL has been diligently advancing the 8,999 hectare Ollachea gold project in Peru's Puno district in the south of the country. This has the potential to be of an order of magnitude much larger than Corihuarmi, as a scoping study that's due out in a few weeks will no doubt demonstrate in some detail. However, any gold production from Ollachea is still some years away, leaving the distinct possibility of a hiatus when Corihuarmi starts to wind down. So, says Courtney, the clear idea behind Minera IRL's offer for Hidefield is "to bridge the gap between Corihuarmi and Ollachea". It is, as you might say, the missing link in the chain. He's hopeful that Hidefield's Don Nicolas project can deliver production of between 50,000 ounces and 70,000 ounces per year in fairly short order, and as the summer field season gets underway in Argentina he's made US$750,000 available to Hidefield to get work adding ounces to the resource re-started in earnest. And Courtney has a real edge over anybody else who's run the rule over Hidefield lately – because he's been familiar with the Don Nicolas project since he worked that same ground during his time with Newcrest back in the mid 1990s he knows what he's buying, knows what it's worth and knows what to expect. The valuation of the transaction, he explains, was simple – US$25 per resource ounce, plus a little bit extra for a few other odds and ends. That's in line with recent industry transactions, and if Minera can prove up significant further ounces might in the long term look like a bargain. "I hope we can get 400,000 to 500,000 ounces in to the resource category fairly soon", says Courtney. He adds that on this type of deposit, in this part of the world, "once you get a mine going, you can often go on forever". Don Nicolas has yet to be explored at real depth, and it's at depth that the key to the project's longevity may well lie. For those looking for a slightly more impartial opinion, it's not long since John Sutcliffe, of neighbouring Mariana Resources, told Minesite that the Hidefield ground had always been significantly under-rated by the market. Partly though, that was simply because Hidefield lacked the cash to do anything with it. Minera is unlikely to suffer from such constraints, and should be able to add value fairly quickly. Courtney's still basking in the afterglow of his company's share price strength last year, when Minera was the best performing Aim-listed miner. Indeed, it was one of only three with shares that ended the year up on where they started. That sort of performance buys a lot of friends and goodwill, and so far Courtney has yet to squander any of it.
ouro: Ken Judge fighting for HIF long term shareholders, large and small? My early research into HIF, six years ago, led me to the conclusion that over time the directors could be trusted to deliver increased value for committed investors. Look to those running the business before giving them any hard earned money. I did, satisfied that the Prouchnau-Judge, exploring-dealing combination had a lot going for it. If there is still the ambition to make something of HIF then Mr Judge will succeed in staving off any bid and will be looking to raise money to take the company on further towards mining. The share price could quickly track upwards with a combination of good drilling results, market awareness of the assets it holds and an increasing gold price. I am hoping that what we are seeing here is some clever work to reposition the company as a viable business and safe from predators. If the properties at East Santa Cruz do have great potential value, then in my book the directors will be doing everything possible to realize this for existing shareholders, themselves included. My feeling is that Mr Judge has got his sleeves rolled up and will not let people down who have shown loyalty and committment.
daddy warbucks: Further to my post above, the 'disposal' of the Golden Zone property makes some sense if it is a toronto listed company after HIF for their columbus gold shares. Should they have bought HIF with the Golden Zone, they may have disposed of Don Nicholas after they had the CGT shares, but the Golden Zone being where it is and with its potential could have been a good acquisition for them. I know all of the above is fanciful, but supposing it is true. ;0) Some of the directors may yet have negotiated to buy back Don Nicholas after HIF is taken out and then who knows, perhaps a JV for the Golden Zone!!!!. On a more serious note, apologies for my conspiracy theories. I am very disappointed that a company which appeared to have so much potential could end up the way it has. I am looking for anything which may improve the share price. I know a lot of it is due to the lack of credit, making it difficult for small firms like HIF to survive, but we do appear to have made some poor calls on the way. IMHO.
davron8: OHSODIT, My main shares in the Aim market are in the following small oilers. AEX,AST,LGO,MXP.MXP, NTOG,RXP,SEY,VOG & XTR. In June I set myself a target to make up my losses over last 18 months and spent time researching and concluded that small oilers/gas exploration producers offered the best chance of success. One they had all suffered big share price price falls and were well down on their previous highs. Secondly I believe the price of crude oil and gas will rise to new high levels. AS all these companies have made good progress during the recession period towards becoming producers I expect them to enjoy a good share price rise in the coming months and to pass their previous high share price and to go even higher. Not intended as advise and do your own research. I now have 40% of my portfolio invested in this plan. Since June I am around £70,000 up so it has started resonably well. The biggest risers are AST bought at 3,56P ave and now 9p.and MTA bought at 1.7p and now 3p My largest holding in cash is XTR but am only a little up as I have kept on adding and now have over 1 million shares. Good luck all.
mike_f: For those that missed it. Statement regarding share price movement Hidefield Gold plc ("the Company" or "Hidefield") notes the recent rise in the share price of the Company and confirms that it is in discussions with a third party which may or may not lead to an offer, which would be on an all share basis, being made for the Company. This announcement has been made with the agreement of the potential offeror. A further announcement will be made in due course. In accordance with Rule 2.10 of the Takeover Code, the Company confirms that it has 410,235,511 ordinary shares of 1p each in issue and admitted to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange under the ISIN reference GB0003644506.
ccorton: ccorton - 18 Jan'08 - 19:29 - 3933 of 4330 edit Lets face it. A recession is coming. There are going to be almost no buyers for AIM stocks. Thus these shares are going to get squeezed. By holding now we are putting great faith in the management not to let shareholders down in the financing of Santa Cruz. (Plus the upside that there is always the chance of some spectacular drilling results). This is the only good news that I can think of: Nov 22 [2007] saw Ken Judge acquire £300k worth of shares in HIF at 6p. That is a big vote of confidence and makes me more confident that the price is not going to be allowed to disappear down the pan. At least if it does then Mr Judge will be standing shoulder to shoulder with the rest of us. However, there was also an important line in the press release: "Under the agreement, Hamilton (ie Mr Judge) has the option to acquire a further 6,125,000 ordinary shares in the Company at a price of 6p per share on or before 25 January 2008." (ie. about £370k) So we will find out by the 25 Jan whether Mr Judge is prepared to take another large slice. If he is then that has to be a strong indication that buying at these levels is not as risky as it currently seems. twohopes - 31 Jan'08 - 15:02 - 3949 of 4330 Just spoke with Ken Judge. He is now the second biggest holder of stock, with 20m shares, a little less than Anglo Pacific. Says he won't be adding any more just at the moment but says it's an indicator of his confidence that he added 5m shares just before Christmas at 6p. He and the rest of the management team are sticking to their work of adding value to the business and he fully expects this to be reflected in the share price at some stage. He's hugely upbeat and doesn't seem concerned at being "in the red" on most of his shares. Ultimately he expects the market to see real value and the share price to go north to where it belongs. Then: Thu Mar 13, 2008 Holding In Company The Directors of Hidefield Gold plc ("Hidefield" or the "Company") announce that the Company has been notified that Hamilton Capital Partners Limited ("Hamilton"), a company with which Kenneth Judge, Chairman of the Company, is associated, has acquired 2,000,000 ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company at a price of 4.75p per share from BSG Investments Inc. ("BSG"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Brazilian Diamonds Limited. Following this transaction, Kenneth Judge, through Hamilton, is interested in 21,961,675 ordinary shares in the Company, representing 7.98 per cent. of the issued share capital. BSG no longer has a notifiable interest in the Company.
haydock: This is the part that should affect the HIF share price. HIF should not have any problems in the near future if things atay as they are with APF. This could refer to: possible coal activity in Canada, & /or backing of the share holdings they are interested in advancing,or both.Probably the latter both. {The Canadian coal holding is still hidden on the books at cost value, although the Australian has been revalued upwards every year.} The recent setbacks in the markets due to liquidity problems and fears of recession have made investors more risk averse and mining finance harder to raise from conventional lenders. In this regard, the Group's increased liquidity and active management policy leave it well positioned to secure new royalty flows and to continue to develop its mining interests. As part of this strategy the Group is in the process of expanding its in-house mining and technical team.
sidneyslacker: WF, I can understand your frustration, but if I overlay the charts of my other junior explorers that have not reached production with the HIF charts they are pretty much the same. It is to do with sector sentiment surely? Those that have performed better have moved a practical step forwards in the defined stages to becoming a producer. It does not cause me any concern, and I take the opportunity to add. I tend to buy in in stages, deliberately to avoid the emotional response to share price drift that delays and quiet periods cause. As to the HIF share price - has it been good? Yes it has presented an undoubted investment opportunity, as available to those already with a stake as to new investors. So how can that be bad ;-) Do you lack confidence in the management, in what the company has achieved in the last period, or do the drilling results concern you? If not I do not see the reason for concern. Perhaps rather than over a specified period of time the price should be looked at by the stage the company is at. If HIF announce a favourable PFS, a BFS or mine finance and nothing happens in the ensuing months, then that would be time to worry?
devon warrior: Remember thats the authorised share capital. Its not going to dilute the share price over night. It may take them a year or 2 or more to issue all of them. 3 years ago the share price was around 4p and there were only about 36M shares in issue. Now there are about 155M in issue but the share price of each one is over 9p. So far the share dilution has only been a good thing. A good reflection of the management I think! The current drilling at Santa Cruz will definately be interesting. Also the Columbus float is now, at last, imminent. Seems they have been so busy building Columbus, including further acquisitions and drilling, that the paperwork for the IPO may have been continually going out of date!! Unfortunately, because Columbus is effectively a private company, a lot of the action is not being reported. In fact the only information officially published is the preliminary IPO info on the SEDAR site published last November. Thats about to change and I'm sure it will also have an impact on the HIF share price. So far the management haven't put a foot wrong and it's amazing that given the large spike up in January the share price has held at this new 2 year high and been rock solid. All looking very rosy.
