Yes bedwetter. I occasionally dabble in the likes of 88e as a flutter not investment.

The reason is there are at least 30 little resources companies listed in LSE who have keen followers and supporters mainly believing the shares will go up massively soon and get them rich in doubly quick time.

It often doesn’t happen. These shares will flicker everynow and then with no sustained rise over time. Great for day traders or short term traders, not for long term holders. Just look at these shares AFC AMC JLP AAU ?..etc. The list goes on and on.

I reckon one in twenty makes it. Not very good odds for my liking.

I regularly post in the ACTA board. Many people there like these little resources cos and mention them. Thus, and only occasionally, I dip my toes in one of these companies with minimum amount of ££. Just for fun not for gains or investments. I did dabble in 88e for this reason a few months ago and got “bored” so exited pdq. Lol

If you are a good trader you can make some mint out of these shares. That’s usually not me.
If you’re a well diversified investor then why not. Indeed. Enjoy the ride.
Good luck.

Marksman51, notice how I haven’t had a clear answer from rRomeo29 yet and won’t do until the news comes out positive or negative and will get told a smug hindsight told you so post like always. You are bang in the money mate, its a gamble 88e with better odds, the fact that they found oil with the original well icewine1, its just a matter of getting flow rates deemed commercia.


" Encouraging trends" says Winnifrith today.
Well shut in for long Alaskan winter… Placing looks likely.

This came to my attention today after seeing RNs re-placing .( Over in Australia so not sure of price )

From an Australian forum price was 2.1c a two day trading halt over there.
Below is an Australian view of London AIM market …!!!
I have just seen all the price info was in the rns below.
Must have been to busy to read it properly .

The AIM market normally only issues a Trading Halt when a company is about to go into administration/liquidation/receivership etc, is my understanding.

For every other event the company has to release all available info to the market and let the market decide.

It’s like the cut price budget version, where rogues abound, allegedly.

Oddly enough had been discussing DrM with share Maiden a few moments ago.
Looks to have nearly doubled since the last placing in September 2109 and it dipped below that a few days after.
Even more interesting after reading Dr M communication with bedwetter above again lol

88 Energy Raising Over GBP2.5 Million To Fund Alaska Projects
from Alliance News | 24th January 2020 08:53
(Alliance News) - 88 Energy Ltd is raising AUD5 million to fund work in Alaska, the Australian firm said on Friday.

The oil & gas firm had said on Wednesday it was planning a capital raise.

88 is placing 238.1 million new shares in the company at a price of AUD0.021 each, raising the AUD5.0 million, or about GBP2.6 million.

88 shares were 3.6% higher on Friday morning at 1.30 pence, but did slip on Wednesday. In Sydney, they closed 7.7% lower at AUD0.024, having been suspended there between Wednesday and when the placing announcement was made in Sydney.

The money will be used to fund ongoing work on assets in Alaska. 88 has a 60% stake in the Icewine project on the North Slope, as well as interests on Alaska’s Western Blocks and Yukon Gold. Work currently ongoing includes the upcoming Charlie-1 appraisal well.

88 will also use the funding to pay lease rental payments, pay off interest on debt, and fund new ventures.

Managing Director Dave Wall said: "The decision by the board to raise additional funds at this time was for several reasons, namely: unsolicited demand for investment at a premium to the most recent placement in September 2019; and a subsequent incremental increase in the well cost due to high grading of the quality of the evaluation program.

“We would like to thank our advisers and shareholders for their continued support as we enter into this critical phase.”

The firm raised GBP3.8 million last September, placing shares at the same price as the current placing.
