RE: Hope11 Oct 2019 23:20
If you have lots of sweeties on a plate and add better ones - which do you pick?

This is what many have failed to understand - you pick the one which will give you the largest return in the shortest time.
AP has done this - yet been criticised by most - it is not an easy job running an AIM company - let alone a basket case like VAST was before he took over - there were many problems he had to overcome and only AP could have got Marange and he brought all our other assets too.

Ye of little faith are beginning to get it and many more also.

Potentially VAST is huge and this is just the start

Sarah from memory we have 29% - we may have to invest a bit but Blueberry is a massive mine on an old mine site - with modern technology and gold/Cu prices it could well be worth £10’s of mil to VAST - but in reality ii’s a small % of what Marange or Zagra or Remin is worth - they are all individually in the $bn’s

$13.5 mil finance to be announced next week - BP mining by Amas - Marange diamonds production in 6 months - looks good to me at MC of £40 mil - was same MC this time last year with no BP licence, no Marange diamonds and no funding - you decide!

Please - please - those RNS would have been insisted upon by the NOMAD to update the market as to why the funding/sign off had not taken this week,

The funding has not been specified, so let us see - however the diamond field is massively profitable - pay off of debt has been achieved in a very short time in the past - so I am not concerned about funding - as long as we can get mining ASAP.

We still have the Swiss bank finance to look forward to also for BP

RE: Hope11 Oct 2019 21:52
Sarah in answer to your questions IMO

  1. The historic claims were priced at $5mil in 2006 as a fire sale - diamond prices have increased by at least 50% since then - so IMO $7mil is low side.
  2. Price on signoff depends on the JV %, new area quality and how the market views Zim diamonds - but IMO it underestimates it.
  3. Blueberry is a gold mine - it will be immense - won’t be priced in till IPO though.

    Fantasy - glad you showed up - 2p was based on events as specified in my original post of a year ago.

VAST is now in an even better position - if we get BP mining by Amas and serious progress on Marange, finance etc, at decent rates - 2p is possible - my prediction in Kierans charity guess was 1.85p, but who knows?

Anyway I am £300k up so far and looking to make a £mil by Xmas so not concerned if it takes a while longer - 2-3p next year is fine with me.

Exploration licence is for bulk sampling which in alluvial mining is full scale mining - that’s how you JORC an alluvial diamond source - there will be work done in the past IMO - the Heritage community trust have held this back from the likes of Anjin etc. to get some cash for themselves - it will be a very good resource IMO and VAST will know that or why bother going through all this?

Well woodaldo - as I have had to mention several (nay hundreds of times) - my “predictions” were based on certain events happening and now they have - so yes 2p is possible. If certain other events happen (more Marange sites, Zagra JV, acquisition of Remin mines) then many pence is possible in a couple of years.

Where’s Fantasy?

IMO the market is probably not aware of the potential of Marange - we will have to see what the final JV is but I am hopeful it will be better than expected.
Recent investors in VAST will not be aware of all the other assets and especially Romania (barring BP) - Zagra is potentially the biggest copper mine in Europe and there are the 55 Remin mines which we have first option on via MOU with RomGov.
All this will come to play when we get to a decent MC and can access serious funds to develop these projects - this is the beginning of the beginning, VAST has world class projects in 2 jurisdictions - not even started yet.

eric - the “artisanal miners” are from the tribes who have signed up for the JV - so they haven’t been moved off - they get the cash without having to risk their lives via the JV with VAST. The whole community benefits - the deal was set up outside the ZimGov (with the Chiadzwa community), but has the blessing of the powers that be within the ZimGov.

The cost of security will not be high as the local community will protect their land as they know they are going to benefit from them. They were the artisanal miners - get it?

RE: Eric04 Nov 2019 13:44
eric - a few answers to your absurd speculation.

  1. VAST resources is the largest investor in mining exploration in Zimbabwe over the past 15 years (according to our CEO).
  2. the Zim economy is 1% of the UK’s so in real terms VAST is a large company in Zim equivalent of an MC of £3.3 bn based on relative economy size.
  3. Our CEO has lots of experience (and a proven record) in dealing with governments and acquiring licences.
  4. VAST resources have the top team in Zim for diamond mining with Mark Mabhudhu et al.

ericeric you appear to misunderstand - I suggest you do sme research before making your inaccurate and misleading claims.

This is binary as most small oilies - if I3e hits the oil 50p+ if not 5p- are both possibilities - I do not like investing in oil, but this is a better bet than most at this s/p IMO (so I have a decent position for me) - we will find out soon - GLA and it is luck and that’s why I hate oil!

Sandy, I agree, however we are where we are, in time they will probably reduce the bureaucracy - VAST is one of the first movers in Zim right now, though it is taking time, AP has made great progress in a very short time and I am very positive about the future.
I hope we get the sign off next week, there is much to look forward to IMO.

And Romania is also potentially worth $bn’s to VAST - so many possibilities.

There is NO CHANCE Atlas will convert any warrants until the bonds are issued as they would be naked and short if the deal is not approved at the GM - you are scare mongering and should be ashamed!

Piker cannot read or understand a simple RNS: “The Bonds have a non-conversion period of six calendar months from the First Issuance Date or, if Atlas so elects (the “Election”), 12 calendar months from the Second Issuance Date”.

The GM ghas to take place first in any case to issue headroom - it will be 6 months from initial drawdown before any conversion can take place and that is if they are not repaid - which they will be from revenues .
In the current period where money supply is tight this is a great deal for shareholders - the diamonds are high;y profitable as will be BP

ripley - no reason - the BB gets filled with “excited posters” when the s/p is volatile - preferable to the deramping mob when VAST was at the lows but I’m never excited, I expected the rise and I expect it will go on until 2-3p+ in the future.

I hope everyone has made some money or at least go some losses back. Don’t worry about the retrace from .5p shs do not go straight up. Share profits are doing their usual hatchet job and MM’s are just doing what they do.

We will be back to .5p soon and then upwards IMO

Easy to forget these looked very sad @ around 0.1p… 21st August 2019 low.
I see i was brave enough / foolish to top @ 0.15p in the June.
Sold 1/4 of those ( D ) 8th October for 0.36p they then blocked purchases on platform.
Must of gone higher for me to buy a few in ( Wi ) 18 October @ 0.48p
Another small tranche 28 October @ 0.31p
Allowed to buy on ( D ) last two days… I had sent e-mail Friday last… not sure if that remoded it .
Must be why I placed a GTC last buy deal to keep it on

Topped up today 22nd November 2019 …( T ) @ …0.35p
Getting back the same amount i sold on 8th Oct 2019 ( 0.36p )


And taking advantage of being allowed to on ( D )


I see Castaway last commented on lse on 4th Nov when share was on a low of 0.27p.
18 days ago.
No comment since … on the 6th started to rise stopping on 12th @ 0.41p same day as ( D ) allowed dealing again .
So he does not appear to just post on the rise rise in this case.


He also posted he bought ALS on 4th Nov 2019.

Spread 3.5%
( Alerts not coming through L.L )
Been trying to buy more in ( T ) since last buy 12days back for 0.32p.
It did come near to target last week but only lifted today @ 8.19am set on phone early before heading off .
Better in hindsight if i had not set limit so early today as it dropped to 0.285p by 9.14am .
AMC … the other choice also lifted within 10 min ( 8.30am )…@ 1.97p … good job i switched that to ( D ) .

Fantasy, you cannot run a mine without power or a way to remove waste to the tailings dam - these are now complete, they have been working on BP ever since the licence was granted, upgrading existing equipment etc. Whilst I doubt full production will be attained until later next year mining operations will commence around Xmas. Obviously we will not be getting the equipment from China this year but that will not stop commencement of mining - next year it will build and build and we will have a very profitable asset.
