I used to work for them but their rates are poor. I would be surprised if they thrive.

Not a holder but looks like theres no board espite superb update Mobile Doctors Group Plc 09 January 2009 Date: 12 January 2009 On behalf of: Mobile Doctors Group Plc ("Mobile Doctors" or "the Group") Embargoed for: 0700hrs Mobile Doctors Group Plc Trading Update Mobile Doctors Group Plc (AIM: MDG.L), one of the leading providers of medico-legal reports for personal injury claims in the UK market, provides the following update on trading for the year ended 30 November 2008, ahead of the announcement of its results week commencing the 16th February 2009. Highlights for the year ended 30 November 2008 include: * Increase in turnover by 30% from £16.7m to £21.7m * A significant increase in profits before tax against 2007 * Significant cash generation resulting in the reduction of bank debt by £1.5m * Administration costs as a percentage of turnover have reduced substantially * Integration of Medifiche (acquired December 2007) now complete with relocation to the main office at Woodford Green * The wide take up of our rehabilitation and diagnostic services in partnership with Nuffield Health Matthew Game, Chief Executive Officer, said: "Four years ago we anticipated that our market would witness significant change: the introduction of price controls, pressure to deliver faster, higher quality services all set against the backdrop of increased marketing costs. We recognised that in order to embrace these challenges we needed to provide services that were lower cost, faster, and better. I am therefore delighted to post this update ahead of our results confirming that the decisions made have helped us to move from strength to strength. "The Group's doctors are vetted, trained and motivated to deliver a first class service to customers requiring a clinical examination. Through increased scale we have moved from simply providing a nationwide footprint of doctors to a model based on exclusive partnerships. The results are clear: a closer relationship with our doctors, faster turnaround, and reduced costs for each examination. "We are excited by the prospects for 2009 and have started our financial year with December sales being at an all time record in 20 years of trading for the business. "With a fully committed and proven management team and our exclusive partnerships with Steria and Nuffield Health, we are in a strong position to deliver an exceptional year ahead."
There are 2 letters to shareholders dated 15/10/07 that are accessible from the Nasdaq quote for MDG under SEC filings, one of them includes the follwing "A formal process of acquisition of the balance of any outstanding Meridian shares will occur as is customary in similar transactions either by compulsory acquisition or subsequent acquisition transaction which would be intended to be completed before year end. " It also says that Yamana have no intention of listing on the UK stock exchange. Pete
This from the III board Having viewed recent posts regarding 'Non-Qualified' UK shareholders I contacted the TSX. Whilst they could not answer the query they put me in touch with Andrea C. FitzGerald @ Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP who has just sent the following response. "It is proposed that the balance of the UK shareholders who are not qualified UK investors will be given the opportunity to participate on the same terms as the first stage offer to all other shareholders as part of a second stage transaction, to be commenced within a short time following the completion of the first stage offer which is still ongoing." Hope this helps. Have also contacted a UK stockbroker who has advised a cost of £100 to sell my small certificated holding.
Is there anyone else out there with Meridian Gold shares that Yamana will not accept as yet? Has anyone found out if we will be offered anything for our shares or is this a con to make our shares worthless?
Hi, have just found 2k of Brancote shares, anyone know how to transfer to Meridian
New poster would like to know if theres been any recent postings, concerning MDG
BUT SOME DISAGREE... Name Pensioner Subject Gold Investor - Target Meridian Interesting (provolked?) commentary. It sounds like your being a non-renter of Meridian shares, to pull an oft used quote from Brian Kennedy, has cost you. Renting, is always an option. The Esquel drill report you demand has been available since May on Sedar, here: - sorry there is not a more adequate facility to post that Link. There appears to not be a great deal of core drilling, and the "chain of custody" of samples looks unusually lacks, as samples for assay Brancote selected by "by eye", and the rejects and adjacent samples were left to sit on the drill pads, untended for extended periods. Unusual protocol. The metallurgical results are not compelling, but reportedly Meridian have done more studies. This report was to be discussed with analysts, but it's release and discussion were deferred in the interest of not further alienating the townsfolk of Esquel. Unfortunately, it and the water study now gone missing, may not be afforded the public review that was hoped for. At the current valuation, any suitor for Meridian would be paying a great deal for a management team you suggest be sacked. That is not good value for their shareholders. The true value of Esquel - to either Meridian or potential suitors - is yet to be revealed.
OLD UPDATE... Exploration update Early in 2003, the El Penon exploration team planned a series of reverse circulation holes aligned west-east to test surface geologic trends and to probe geophysical anomalies. The first fence of holes were drilled between the Cerro Martillo deposit and the Borde Norte rhyolite dome (located 1,300 meters to the east). This fence encountered 6 meters of 85.87 g/t Au and 4503.3 g/t Ag in PS461 at a drill-hole depth of 310 meters. This interval is currently being expanded to the north and south with encouraging results (see table below). Methodical step out drilling at 30 to 60 meter intervals have defined a narrow North to N12(degree)W quartz vein. The vein was developed in flow-banded rhyolite with anomalous to potential ore grade intercepts 90 meters along strike and over 100 meters in vertical extent. A second fence of holes 500 meters to the north has identified a 1.0 meter drill intercept of 4.49 g/t Au and 348.7 g/t Ag in PS545 at a drill-hole depth of 313 meters. This intercept in quartz-veined rhyolite is thought to correlate with the PS461 zone to the south. This new area was referred to as the Al Este target in the Mid-Year Exploration Update conference call. Given the limited number of same section intercepts in this new zone, accurate true widths of the vein have not been calculated at this time. The estimated true widths of the known mineral intercepts range between 0.5 and 1.0 meters. Meridian's work on the new target is in a very early stage. The Company does not yet have sufficient knowledge of the extent or potential economics of this new discovery. Exploration efforts in the second half of 2003 will focus on expanding the Al Este vein to the north and south and will continue to develop the Martillo Flats, Quebrada Colorada Norte and other associated mineral bodies into the indicated and measured resource categories.

Safety recognition at El Penon Meridian Gold is also pleased to announce that El Penon has been recognized for its outstanding safety record in Chile. In July, the Asociacion Chilena de Seguridad (ACHS) awarded the El Penon Safety Committee the 'Premio Accion Paritaria'for the year 2002. ACHS is the medical and safety provider for approximately 37,000 businesses in Chile representing approximately 1.7 million employees. Each year, ACHS presents twenty of these awards. This year, two mining companies in Chile were awarded this distinction, one of them being Meridian Gold. The Company was recognized for its annual results, its constant effort for the prevention of accidents, industrial illnesses and compliance with the law. The award will be presented in Santiago, Chile on August 27, 2003.
from the Tiger's Den: {Lute82} Following is a post I made elsewhere to summarize my current thoughts on MDG...for anyone who may be interested. RE: Meridian.... does anybody have any thoughts on why it has been so weak since September 10th? If one looks at the $gold/MDG chart, one sees that a simple return to the 50 day MA of this ratio puts MDG back at 13.54. During the past week, there are several gaps in the chart of this ratio. The largest between the close of 9/24 and the open of 9/25. Should this gap simply fill, it would put MDG back around 13.14 based on today's gold price. If one looks at the $HUI/MDG chart, one sees that a simple return to the 50 day MA of this ratio puts MDG back at 13.41. On September 9th, MDG hit a high of 14.25, and GG hit a high of 14.16. Since that date, GG and the price of gold have stayed basically flat while MDG has lost more than 20% of its market cap. If one looks at the weekly chart, MDG rallied from a low of 8.72 in late March to its high of 14.25 on September 9th. A 50% retrace of this rally was at 11.485. A 61.8% retrace would take MDG down to 10.83. There seems to be strong support in the 11 area. The risk reward of a buy on MDG looks good here with a stop at 10.79 and an initial upside target at the prior high of 14.25. Am I missing something or is there a chance MDG is oversold and punished too heavily for the Esquel situation? Is MDG a takeover target? Is there further bad news pending? Who knows but it seems attractive at this price level.
techinical chart action, & gold stocks are incorrection
Why ? CTN.
the novice
I expext a fall to near $11, and maybe to near $9
Meridian Gold (MDG-NYSE, US$10.84) OP Target: US$14.00 • Meridian reported first quarter operating and financial results on Thursday, May 9. A conference call was held the following day. • Both production and cash costs exceeded our expectations; however, EPS of $0.09 were $0.03 below our estimate and $0.02 under consensus due to high charges on the income statement. • Production of 107 koz was 5 koz greater than our estimate while costs of $92/oz were $7/oz lower. However, earnings were affected by charges on the income statement. Depreciation, G&A, exploration and taxation were, in total, $3.2 million more than our estimate. Delayed gold deliveries (gold sales were 6 koz below production) affected EPS by $0.01 to $0.02. This would have brought Q1/03 EPS of $0.09 closer to consensus. • Overall, there were no real surprises. The company did not revise its 2003 guidance, and we have not materially changed any of our estimates. Our 2003 EPS forecast changed only in line with the result this quarter. No development timeline was given for Esquel-and none is expected to be given-as long as the company continues to listen to the concerns of the Esquel community.
Meridian to pause development of Esquel By: Tim Wood ... 2003/03/28 Fri 15:00 EST | © Mineweb 1997-2003 NEW YORK -- Meridian Gold [MDG] is to announce on Friday that it has agreed to "pause" development of the Esquel gold project in southern Argentina. The decision was taken after the Governor of Chubut intervened following a town referendum that overwhelmingly rejected the proposed mine. The news is expected to hit Meridian's share price hard since it will require earnings and cash flow estimates to be revised lower. There have already been adjustments to account for previous delays and now it seems inevitable that investors will call to mind other halted or stalled gold projects such as Crown Butte, Ovacik and Tambo Grande that have dragged on interminably and at great cost to cost their owners. The project, acquired from London listed Brancote in July last year, has been dogged by bad news with several delays in the permitting process and a running battle with activists wanting to keep the area pristine. As a result of the pause, commercial production is now expected to be put off until late 2005 at the earliest, setting the project back at least one year and adding further costs. However, it is believed that Meridian will decline to speculate about a new timetable for the project without first securing community support. :MORE:

Maybe MDG is cheap to consider buying now... MDG 10.30 -0.55 10.29 10.30 1,551,800 14:48:36
News & Poor price action highlights the idiocy of BLINDLY investing in Fashionable UNHEDGED GOLDS. VALUATION matters more, than whether they hedge or not!
MDG was always massively over-valued IMO. I shorted it when they announced the Brancote merger, which was "anti-dillutive" to MDG shareholders despite the high price paid, showing how expensive it was. For months it tracked the HUI, but has recently lagged far behind. It would probably be decent value without the Green disturbances. With them, I will avoid for the time being. Look at Ariane Gold & Wheaton. Much better value there IMO
