The Quest for Investment – Gold

As some of you will be aware, I have recently been appointed as the Australian editor of InvestorIntel, as such I have been tasked with seeking information from all of the resource sectors for ASX listed companies. All ASX listed companies are being offered an obligation-free opportunity to engage with the InvestorIntel Australian and International audience. Their responses will be published without edit in the daily InvestorIntel distribution. So the extensive international social media support backing of InvestorIntel, with posts that frequently appear first on all of the media search engines will, over time, provide you with almost total coverage of the ASX listed resources market.

I have been a sub-editor to InvestorIntel for a number of years, principally focussing on the rare earths sector, but I have provided copy and comment on a number of other issues. The format I wish to follow looks at what I call the “Success Factors”. You may wish to view and revise my series on “Success Factors”. What I want to provide to you, the InvestorIntel audience, is not a verbatim on the Company website contents or an abbreviated cut-and-paste, but a to-the-point, investor “must-know” series of information on those topics most relevant to you, our investor base. That is, the Success Factors. Note each Company article will be posted in isolation to it’s peer group and there will be no published cross-peer review. Any possible detailed comparison will only be by you, the individuals in the InvestorIntel audience, based on the company response and any further research that you may wish to conduct.

To better focus the relevant investor interest groupings, I have divided the ASX listed gold sector into “Producers” and “Explorers” and will correspond with them all. I have produced a list of questions (the Success Factors) for those companies to answer should they wish to undertake this investor engagement opportunity. Note that this is an obligation-free opportunity and so is not on a pay-for-comment basis. I will be posting the responses in full on InvestorIntel (without edit) on and as received basis. To cater for publishing needs, the companies have been asked to keep the document word count to around 2,000 as my target. They have been given the freedom to provide hyperlinks to relevant reference material to assist their response and to help audience understanding. Similarly, they have been given the freedom to detail any highlights that can differentiate them from their peers. Note, I will provide “Producer” / “Explorer” description in each introduction and will also provide linkage to their web site.

As you would appreciate the Western World’s woes appear to be being highlighted at the moment and the investor move to the safety of gold is quite topical. So whilst, I haven’t put any time restraints on return of the questionnaire, it would make sense for those companies to utilise the current gold investment market sentiment to be expeditious and to “strike while the iron is hot!” as they say.

Success Factors – The Quest for Investment

ASX Listed Gold Producers (over the next 2 years)

  • What are your proven and probable resources and what is your proposed resource development schedule?
  • What is your proposed production schedule and expected bottom line operating costs?
  • What are the inherent advantages or otherwise of your mineralogy?
  • What are the social, environmental and political factors associated with your projects that may be of concern?
  • What are the short to medium term possible highlights that potential investors should be looking out for?

Success Factors – The Quest for Investment

ASX Listed Gold Explorers (over the next 2 years)

  • What is your current resource position and what is your proposed resource development schedule?
  • What is your proposed funding strategy for that development schedule?
  • What is your expected schedule to production and what are your expected bottom line operating costs?
  • What are the inherent advantages or otherwise of your mineralogy?
  • What are the social, environmental and political factors associated with your projects that may be of concern?
  • What are the short to medium term possible highlights that potential investors should be looking out for?

I am planning to progressively expand the coverage of this series into base metals, iron ore etc companies listed on the ASX. So I am hoping for quite a number of gold responses before I get into the other sectors. As always, I am responsive to your needs and appreciate any feedback you wish to give.
