@MiningBookGuy been following #mbgtrends chat without participating - AWESOME discussion today, like the #promotions tag from @tommy with #RichardBranson 'tip' as well. need to look more carefully to respond to earlier comments at a later time. but @Brendan has an important opinion here that I 'somwehat' disagree with: https://ceo.ca/mbgtrends?3e4f183a60bb I have spoken to various companies with 'promotion' and 'non-promotional' ability. Without naming names (but I'm sure you guys could guess some!), my FAVORITE companies are the ones that are POOR with promotion, but have EXCELLENT fundamentals. With that said, some of these companies are stubborn or ignorant (at least to a degree) about IMPROVING their #promotions. This does NOT necessarily require a budget. But I have seen incredible improvements in some companies (and people at CEO.CA literally doing a 180 on them based on posting), because the #STORY made more sense, or it was just communicated more effectively. I think this is really, really, really important, and a bit of a different direction from the #FutureMoneyTrends talk earlier (which again, I'll comment on another time). But @Brendan, as a key 'general' example, there is NO reason for #Africa (as an entire continent) to be ignored by Canadian and US investors to the degree that it has been. I know that you follow/own many companies on the continent. And honestly, just improving the #story, and all the other little #promotions stuff that may seem gimmicky, actually can move million (if not Billions or Trillions) of dollars. Never forget #BRICS, and what that 'story' accomplished, regardless of how gimmicky that was! (thank you Jim O'Neill for that one!)

@MiningBookGuy @Brendan - great comment, and I even think that's a good example to use. And interestingly, I'm down on #Russia as well, but COULD be convinced otherwise with the proper promotion. And as an #Africa example, I was shocked how well the $GXU #promotions worked in #Niger, because I consider #Niger one of the most dangerous places in #WestAfrica (even with the mention of the history of top security specific to AREVA, which is true). That's a big credit to CEO.CA and Jonathan Roth (and many others involved with that one!)

@MiningBookGuy Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi heads to Africa https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZyIIZXpb7g+ #China #Africa ~AUfrica "The Chinese Foreign Minister has embarked on a trip to Africa. The five-day visit will see him tour #Mauritania, #CapeVerde, #Mali and Cote d'Ivoire ( #IvoryCoast ). This is Wang Yi's second trip to the continent this year. The first was in January, where he toured #Madagascar, #Zambia, #Tanzania, the Republic of Congo ( #CongoBrazzaville ) and #Nigeria. The visits are aimed at boosting Sino-African relations. They follow the recent conclusion of the One Belt, One Road Forum in Beijing ( #OneBeltOneRoad ). The initiative plays a vital role in developing African #infrastructure and economies. It also complements the African Union's Agenda 2063, which aims to integrate the continent and to develop sustainable economies."

@Goldfinger RBC on $EDV: We expect a slight positive reaction from Endeavour’s shares to the construction update on the company’s flagship Hounde project which is now over 85% complete, on budget and on schedule to pour first gold in Q4/17. Hounde is expected to have a positive impact on Endeavour’s overall all-in sustaining cost profile given benefit of lower cost production relative to existing assets. The project is also expected to benefit from a renewed focus on exploration which has resumed and is currently testing higher grade targets in order to sustain a higher level of production during the early years of the project. Project is nearing completion and on schedule and budget, with less than $120M remaining to be spent of the $327M total capex Long lead items including SAG and ball mills are on site with installation in progress Mining has commenced with 600 Kt expected to be stockpiled ahead of first production (73 days based on annual capacity of 3.0 Mt) Near mine exploration drilling of various high grade targets has resumed in early 2017 We estimate annual attributable production (90% EDV) of 165 Koz at an average mine-site sustaining cash cost of $790/oz over an estimated mine life of 12 years. Production during the first five years of operation, we forecast average annual gold production of 205 Koz at a sustaining cost of $695/oz. Hounde currently represents 35% of our operating value for Endeavour. #Africa #Gold

@MiningBookGuy @marketwired/orca-gold-discovers-additional-water-resource-and-makes This is truly fantastic news for $ORG, and I'll add a few additional comments, because I think it's hard for someone new to the story to understand the significance here: -there have always been 2 big hurdles for $ORG: 1. jurisdiction risk/perception with #Sudan 2. #water problems -with this NR, we have completely wiped out the 2nd risk! I trust that this management team really has found the 'holy grail' in terms of putting the water issue to rest. This is a HUGE surprise to the upside. Based on previous presentations and my brief discussions with management, I was expecting any water discovery to allow for throughput to increase from 1.8Mtpa to roughly 2.3-2.4Mtpa. This still would have gotten annual gold production through the 100k oz/year threshold, which was already key -well instead of this, we blow right through 2.4Mtpa, all the way to 3.4Mtpa, crazy! HUGE, improvement, and as you scan the NR, you can see 135k oz/year gold production over the life of the mine, and 146k oz/year over the first 5 years. Again, this is HUGE! -I am 100% sure this will turn heads in the industry, but not as sure how long it will take for new potential investors (like retail at CEO.CA) to understand the significance here. There is 'likely' to be a removal of US sanctions by July on #Sudan. IF that happens, I think this project will REALLY get attention. But even if it doesn't, I am sure many mid-tiers are going to get really interested in $ORG (some examples being $TGZ or $EDV, especially since they are already focused in #Africa). In fact, $EDV might just now be getting interested, because these project economics now rival their other mines. -One question mark for me: A bit weird to go straight from PEA to DFS. I understand the reasons to rush. I also think it's important to realize the PEA seemed 'relatively conservative', because most of the ounces were already at least in the 'indicated' category, and NOT 'inferred' like many other PEAs. But this is an area where we need to trust managements experience/expertise to some degree, and it obviously helps seeing the #RedBack track record. Ok, long enough for now. Oh, make sure to compare the project NPV to current $ORG market cap. Crazy gap...AND don't forget $ORG has prime #ivorycoast exploration properties! I am 'very confident' this is now the 'best value' in the mining space for gold projects around the world (let alone #Africa), not at all reliant on the gold price needing to move up. I'll also tag #mbgtrends as this fits with many of our discussions in that room. ~AUfrica

@MiningBookGuy btw, you can include companies or ANY other rooms/panels. I for instance included ~AUfrica or #Africa, just in case people aren't aware of that panel or room yet. I think this is a great way to 'introduce' ANY new room ideas to people at CEO.CA, whether it's a company or anything else. Anyone can subscribe to public watchlists, rooms or panels. And I think anyone can write in a watchlist without permission (you only need permission for panels).

@Excelsior $ORE Orezone #Gold Announces Results From Ongoing Drill Program at Bomboré; Expands P17S Zone Down Plunge Hole TYD0073, which returned 4.80 m of 2.29 g/t Au and 6.30 m of 4.47 g/t Au; Hole TYD0074, which returned 8.50 m of 3.95 g/t Au; Hole TYD0075, which returned 9.60 m of 3.80 g/t Au; Hole TYD0076, which returned 12.00 m of 3.40 g/t Au; Hole TYD0077, which returned 14.00 m of 1.65 g/t Au; Hole TYD0078, which returned 5.00 m of 4.94 g/t Au; Hole TYD0079, which returned 5.90 m of 2.44 g/t Au; Hole TYD0080, which returned 5.00 m of 3.17 g/t Au; Hole TYD0081, which returned 8.80 m of 2.70 g/t Au; Hole TYD0082, which returned 13.30 m of 2.06 g/t Au; Hole TYD0083, which returned 9.70 m of 3.38 g/t Au; Hole TYD0084, which returned 2.00 m of 14.10 g/t Au; Hole TYD0087, which returned 6.90 m of 4.85 g/t Au. "Commenting on the results, Patrick Downey, President and CEO, stated, “These new drill results along the P17 corridor continue to demonstrate the potential to both expand higher grade shallow resources at Bomboré and open up previously untested zones. The #drilling continues both to intercept mineralization containing both good grade and widths and is open along strike and down dip. The Company plans to continue drilling in this prospective corridor and to evaluate and drill other prospective areas on this largely underexplored property.” ~AUfrica #Africa http://orezone.com/higher-grade-zone-bombore-expands-along-newly-identified-mineralized-trend/

@MiningBookGuy Investing in Gold Around the World Panel - Moderated by Frank Holmes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pnkgh04wfI+ This is a notable video from #IMW17. I like the questions asked by #FrankHolmes. There are some good nuggets throughout the video, but I wanted to highlight a few things: -Around 8-9 minutes in, I love that Frank asked the panel about #LatinAmerica vs #Africa, which I don't think gets discussed publicly enough. Of course, each of the panelists has their own interests. But I was pleasantly surprised that #ChrisThompson highlights #IvoryCoast as one of his favorite places to look in #WestAfrica right now. He also mentions #BurkinaFaso as an area of interest, and I'm sure he has his own ranking of #WestAfrica jurisdictions. I just happen to agree with these 2 being at the top right now. -A bit later on, #FrankHolmes even says that 2 analysts from #Bolivia and #Mexico generally consider #Africa 'safer' than #LatinAmerica, with this creepy quote: “in Africa they only take off your fingers, in Latin America they take off your arms” Of course, all panelists agree that you really need to hone in on specific jurisdictions. I agree with this, and appreciate the nuance in the answers. -I also liked Chris Thompson's thoughtful comments on #silver, in which he also specializes. I am biased towards his comments because I agree with much of what he said. But the other 2 guys had good things to say as well. -Lastly, I found it very interesting that there was a complete LACK of discussion on both #Europe and #Australia (at least I don't remember hearing a single thing on these 2 areas). I am interested in both, and maybe this lack of discussion implies opportunities! Anyway, I really enjoyed this video, and recommend people take a look if they are as interested in 'global' thoughts in mining as I am. #mbgtrends

@FundamentalAnalysis ~Aufrica ....Thought I'd share couple of basic cpinions from those who have lived in the african region. I went to a bbq over the weekend and spoke to someone who was born and migrated from Nigeria to UK, they were off the opinion that within the west african region Ghana is one of the few standout places in terms of progress due to political changes that have been made. His experience of Nigeria was bad (the usual people at the top siphon off all the oil money). Alternatively also spoke to someone from Zimbabwe who left the country about a decade ago, and they were long term bearish on Africa as a whole, saying they just didn't believe Africa would ever really get out. (Maybe his zimbabwe experiences could explain the negativity but it got me contemplating) that the system is designed so not everyone can be wealthy, as wealth is relative, and until African countries have proper rule of law and proper governance, regardless of all the infrastructure the chinese are building and the mining related profits etc....its citizens would never get out of the poverty trap. The world is based on debt, and therefore inflation is necessary, that in turn keeps people struggling .

@Goldfinger I think $ACA.L issues are weighing on the sub-Saharan $Africa explorers. News would be nice, but I agree about having a deal with $TGZ would be much better. Also as I shareholder I would love to see some effort on the promotional front, which $SWA seems to have no idea and/or no interest in putting together. So shareholders keep suffering OR looked at another way, get to buy more stock at what 'hope' to be low levels.

@MiningBookGuy @Goldfinger - just a quick response to that because i have to run soon: Agree on potential of $SWA promotional effort. but in terms of $ACA.L related to sub-saharan #Africa explorers, there is A LOT of excitement in various companies right now, and they are being rewarded. Some of them are ASX listed, and not discussed at CEO.CA. Mid-tiers are also doing a lot of good work, and people are following those are following those more closely. Unfortunately, I do think $ACA.L is weighing on $SWA ...but just wanted to clarify my thought that this is very specific to companies that $ACA.L is related to, and i don't think it crosses-over at all to other #WestAfrica companies, or much of the rest of sub-saharan africa

@JamesKwantes On your #Africa comment, @Allan, I must respond. Partly because I went there for the first time recently & what I learned and experienced. I take your point and there are some very real issues wrt corruption, colonial legacy, etc. But's a big, diverse and mineral-rich continent with countries of all shapes & sizes & degrees of mining friendliness, so you're painting with a VERY broad brush there. #Botswana, for eg, is a great mining jurisdiction. And extending your logic takes you to some curious places. Why arbitrarily draw the line at Africa? Would you write off all of Central and South America because of some serious anti-mining sentiment at the local level (and a history of centuries of colonial exploitation)? British Columbia because of the First Nations? That BC one is not a rhetorical question -- I have talked to high-profile mining CEOs who take that very approach. To take it to a ridiculous level, how about the entire Earth? There are great opportunities to make money in different areas, sometimes even where you're not expecting it #newbies

@MiningBookGuy @JamesKwantes - thanks for your #Africa comments earlier! much appreciated with your valuable boots-on-the-ground experience. For the record, I dug this up from @Allan in Feb 2017: @Allan "Botswana and Namibia are about the only places in Africa I would consider, but I have a lit of places I would go first before there. Long way away." https://ceo.ca/@allan?a4f66e75b050 @Allan can change his mind whenever he wants, contradict himself, etc. But at least there was a time when his viewed were aligned with yours, particularly in showing that he does believe there are parts of Africa that are 'better' than others :) #Botswana #Namibia PS - as a totally unnecessary sidenote, this might be the current 'record' for #ThumbsUp (at 120!), which occurred a few hours later on the same day, coincidentally also involving @Allan @JamesKwantes! https://ceo.ca/@allan?83aa79faebbd #TimeMachine #CEOTimeMachine

@MiningBookGuy @staffpro RE: https://ceo.ca/spa?fde2bbcdb666 - i don't think this is specifically relevant to $SPA & $ME. But in general, I do think this is a positive for the gold sector going forward a year or two, as #SouthAfrica #supply disruption should have medium term impact on the market (but there's also a hidden assumption that the 'physical' market will become a bigger factor in the price of gold, which I believe to be true, but not everyone does) But I would say this is even more positive for #PGMs, as #SouthAfrica is even more influential in that space. That's something to think about as well. But I'm glad you caught this news, as a lot of people tend to underestimate the significance of #SouthAfrica mining on the rest of the world (though it was much, much more influential ~40 years ago). #Africa

@Excelsior @MiningBookGuy - That is the best overview of #Mali mining companies that I've seen compiled all in one place. Can't wait for your #BurkinaFaso or #Ghana lists! > One company that I'd add to the mix in Mali is $FGC $FLDPF Frontline Gold. This is the same team that was behind $MXI, so I always expected some synergy there, where they may consolidate those projects; [but $IMG scooped up $MXI before that could happen]. Regardless Frontline's Niaouleni property is right in the middle of the action in #Mali, and I could see them spinning this out or selling it to the right company. If nothing else they really need to JV this project out to another Explorer, since their focus is split over several jurisdictions. http://www.frontlinegold.com/s/Niaouleni.asp http://cdn.ceo.ca/1ck7ke9-FGC-Mali-ppt.pdf >> $FGC is better known (even though they are hardly known at all) for their #tailings projects in #Turkey http://www.frontlinegold.com/s/Turkey.asp >>> and for the #royalty deals they did with $RZZ around their #RedLake properties in #Ontario * http://www.frontlinegold.com/s/RedLake.asp http://www.frontlinegold.com/s/NewsReleases.asp?ReportID=771979&_Type=News-Releases&_Title=Frontline-Increases-its-exploration-properties-in-the-Red-Lake-District-and... * Currently these RedLake properties are under option to $PAC where they'll just retain a #NSR >>>> Lastly they have some interesting properties in #BritishColumbia in the Stewart mining camp http://www.frontlinegold.com/s/PolyStewart.asp A very odd company to value, but it is trading at "rock bottom" prices since it appears the market doesn't understand their #Africa / #Turkey / #Canada mega-mix of assets.

@MiningBookGuy Prime Meridians - Here's The Worst Mining Nation On The Planet http://piercepoints.com/mining-investment-exploration-profits-production-efficiency-south-africa-usa-australia/ #SouthAfrica #gold #PGMs #productivity #Africa ~AUfrica #index @PiercePoints #PiercePoints Last Two Paragraphs: "Overall, #SouthAfrica’s productivity is a whopping 90% lower than top gold nation #Australia. By far the worst in the world — and now about to get even more worse, after this week’s additional financial burdens announced by the government. That’s an untenable situation. Watch over the coming months for potential major breakdowns in South Africa’s operations — mine closures, strikes, and violence are all distinct possibilities. All of which could lift prices for #gold (and #platinum — where South Africa accounts for 70% of global production), but will be very serious for in-country operators."

@MiningBookGuy My video on $PDI.AX from a few weeks ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fW9Zw1ognqI+ Thank you @Excelsior for posting it at CEO.CA soon after the release! I was planning to write an article to go with it. Instead, I am writing this note with various tags, especially for those who missed it and like researching new ideas that very few people are following right now. Here are some highlights to note: -shout-outs to @nick (introduced $PDI.AX to me) @1ForDaMoney & @nickzed! We need more savvy Aussies like these guys at CEO.CA :) -Finding Bargains Down Under with #RickRule - http://www.theaureport.com/pub/na/finding-bargains-down-under-with-rick-rule This article is as powerful now as when it was published in 2013. One part #ASX-Stocks, one part #Africa … I am thankful for the insights here! Also shout-outs to @TheNextBigRush & @Jayfire in relation to #Australia stock talk on #TheNextBigRush youtube channel. -Importantly, I compare $PDI.AX to $MUN. Even though they seem quite different on the surface, they both have multiple, high-potential catalysts in the near-future, #Tier1 #exploration potential, aggressively pursuing global recognition right now despite being micro-caps. It’s hard to find companies with these qualities, and even better when so few people know them. -An important comparison of #Ecuador to #IvoryCoast. I pick on $ARU …while I personally am not willing to pay a massive premium for #management & #story with so little work actually done, I commend them for getting so much attention, and highlight @Newton’s excellent interview with #KeithBarron @Newton/will-lightning-strike-twice-with-dr-keith-barron-in-ecuador-aurania-resources-aru #IvoryCoast could use some help in the #story department…but to kick things off, I think there are interesting parallels to #Ecuador being the emerging jurisdiction in #SouthAmerica, while #IvoryCoast is the emerging jurisdiction in #WestAfrica / #Africa. -But one person HAS been pushing the story…and very few investors in #NorthAmerica seem to be paying attention. Mark #Bristow has pounded the table for years, and this is perhaps the best interview (and best link I have provided) to spread the message (from #DenverGoldForum 2016, main highlights around 7 minutes in, and 15 minutes in ): http://www.denvergoldforum.org/dgf16/company-webcast/RRS:LN/ There are very few choices for early-stage gold #exploration in #IvoryCoast: $PDI.AX - my current top choice $ORG - close behind and a top pick of mine…but not a ‘pure play’ for #IvoryCoast / #WestAfrica / #exploration, considering most value is tied into the more advanced #Sudan project $MARL -Some people were very interested in this one for #IvoryCoast exposure. Now it will take a while for that to materialize (and unclear what the next steps are). We'll see what $SSL does with these properties $AOP.AX - a very interesting one that I own as well…likely more on this in the future ... it’s a very short list right now! BUT, just check this list of mid-tiers/majors with #IvoryCoast exposure: $RRS.L $NCM.AX $CEY.L $CEE $EDV $PRU $PRU.AX $TGZ $RSG.AX $SMF …and there are surely more. Again, worth thinking about in relation to #Ecuador as an emerging mining jurisdiction worldwide… There is an #opportunity in this part of the world. #DYODD, good luck!

"Stuart — who had been #RedBack’s vice-president of exploration — argues #Sudan is the most geologically prospective country in Africa. “There are few places left in the world where modern #exploration hasn’t had a good go, and #Sudan is one of them. It’s got fantastic rocks, yet it’s barely been touched. From a purely technical point of view, it’s a no-brainer to explore there,” Stuart says." ... "On July 12, U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration may permanently remove a 20-year economic embargo on #Sudan. The sanctions were temporarily lifted in January under the Obama administration, giving the Sudanese government six months to improve its human rights record and resolve political and military conflicts." ... [“If the sanctions are permanently lifted, anybody is free to do business there, including bankers,” he says. “In the past, we’ve focused on the Gulf states rather than North America when it came to lining up finances for the mine. So if it does happen, it would open up a lot more opportunities for us.”]

@MiningBookGuy Editorial: Africa remains a dominant force in global gold mining www.northernminer.com/news/editorial-africa-remains-dominant-force-global-gold-mining/1003787298/ #Africa #gold #mining ~AUfrica #index #NorthernMiner "With so many troubles in Africa’s centres of gold mining — extremist attacks in West and North Africa, perennial challenges in #CentralAfrica and the long, slow decline of violence-ridden #SouthAfrica — it can be easy to lose sight that, at least from a technical perspective, #gold mining is still a strong and productive sector on the continent." #WestAfrica #NorthAfrica #EastAfrica

@MiningBookGuy At least 100 killed in fighting in Bria, a day after ceasefire https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJaIKA6bDAU+ #CentralAfricanRepublic #Africa ~AUfrica "The death toll from clashes between armed groups in the Central African Republic has risen to at least 100 people. The fighting erupted in Bria, a day after the government and rebel groups singed a ceasefire. Witnesses have described streets strewn with bodies. The situation is reportedly so dangerous that Red Cross teams are unable to enter the area to collect the bodies for burial. The Central African Republic has been rocked by inter-religious and ethnic fighting since 2013."

@MiningBookGuy Acacia Mining in negotiations with government over tax dispute https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SaJB-uJ7nk+ $ACA.L $ABX #Tanzania #Africa ~AUfrica And [Update] Barrick, Acacia embroiled in political turmoil in Tanzania http://www.northernminer.com/news/update-barrick-acacia-embroiled-political-turmoil-tanzania-2/1003787257/ #NorthernMiner Partial Quote: [“Kelvin Dushnisky and I were in Tanzania last week,” CEO Brad Gordon said during a June 2 conference call. Dushnisky serves as Acacia’s chairman, as well as president at Barrick. “We are receiving support from Barrick through this situation. On the ground this is the first time Kelvin has been with me during senior-level meetings in country. So we’d been largely driving it ourselves up until this point, but [they are] ready to assist in any way they can,” he elaborated.]

@MiningBookGuy @LucTenHave - thanks for mentioning $OTC.L. I originally looked into a long time ago (last year I think?) for the #DRC #Congo investment. I think I got less interested because of what I perceive to be issues (especially in that part of the country), and it being an AIM listing with some share structure issues. I hadn't thought about this for a long time until you just mentioned it today. I'm glad you mention it though, because I forgot the #Slovakia project was the main project (and I never looked closely at this). And the other investments in #Africa are much more interesting that I remembered. I think you might be onto something here...I will consider calling management in the coming weeks. As you say, it does feel like one that would trade much higher, simply being listed on the TSXV. And it really is a perfect candidate for 'getting an edge' by talking to management. #AIM-Stocks
