I agree with this sandstone, I actually have a web app in development and was thinking about getting a sponsor although I'd be covering more content than commodities (tech etc.) so I'm not sure if that would be Arians cup of tea. If I don't get that off the ground I may have time to contribute to a twitter feed etc and even integrate Bitcoin tipping as an incentive for shareholders to post links for a bit of fun (I would be rich lol)
There is no reason why mining companies can't benefit the local communities when planning projects, even a relatively small gesture can make a big difference but when the people are forgot and companies take the biscuit this is what happens. Rather then bribing the government they should be asking the government for help e.g. state help for installing solar to power the mine and the community so everyone wins. We know from JW that Arian have a good relationship with the local communities which is a massive plus but if you think doing a feasibility study on solar could be rewarding then let them know (I've sent them some research from http://energyandmines.com/). It's either not feasible so no big deal or just maybe we get even lower AISC and some free publicity for being cutting edge :D
That makes sense, I remember reading from another poster that JW mentioned the Q1 results would be before the end of the month. For me, the main takeaway from that will be any hints about how production is progressing, milestones, drilling plans/shareholder value and projections going forward in the MD&A rather than the past as we know Arian are just starting. I thought they might of got the drill results in beforehand but now it looks too near the end of the month and we'll get Q1 followed by drill results. I suspect we may also get operational updates in between quarters as production is ramped up over the coming months
They used the same 2.8moz per GW figures i used in my previous post. Don't agree with Silver Wheaton as per my precious post they have shifted into gold over the last year like most large silver miners. Pure silver plays are going to be sought after mark my words
On the back of yesterdays comments by the Saudi oil minister:
We must publish the Q1's within 60 days of period end, so that will be next week. We should not get excited about Q1's, as the Mill was in the very early stages of commissioning, just to see any kind of revenue would be a positive sign, provided of course we sold concentrate in that period.
As regards drilling, one would lay money on it being within the next couple of weeks. They probably will not publish that at the same time as Q1's, so my guess is maybe the week after or thereabouts.
Not had any feedback from last nights presentation, did anyone attend. Quite interestingly and unusually, I'm informed Tony Williams was in attendance and actually gave a decent account of himself in private Q&A's after Fuad's presentation. Good show Tony, let's see you do it more regularly.
It sems likely we'll get an RNS before the end of next week. Probaly not about the drilling but we should hear a bit more about the first concentrate sales etc Spot silver looks like it may break through 17.28 this afternoon which would lead to further buy orders.
