CAPS Exclusive: Online Forum With Alexandria Minerals CEO Dr. Eric Owens
Many of you will recall that Dr. Owens -- co-founder and CEO of Alexandria Minerals (ALXDF on the pink sheets; AZX on the Toronto Venture Exchange) -- was kind enough to join us right here on the CAPS blogs last April to engage in direct dialogue with Motley Fool members and answer questions about his company. Anyone who may have missed that live forum may wish to review the post at the above link, and anyone not familiar with the company may wish to carefully review the summary presentation I offered here. I believe the stock traded for $0.21 at the time, while presently, with gold prices higher still, and following additional positive developments like these encouraging drill results last month, the shares are now more than 20% cheaper to acquire. Having acquired additional shares myself during the dip, I wanted to remind Fools that I consider Alexandria Minerals poised for meaningful appreciation as the market comes to account for the high prospectivity of Akasaba in addition to the properties presently hosting the company's estimated global resource of nearly 900,000 ounces of gold at the Orenada and Sleepy projects.
Alongside my summary presentation linked above, this corporate presentation will help get you up to speed.
Dr. Owens has graciously agreed to participate in a follow-up forum with CAPS members today, and he will be available for the next couple of hours. If you have more questions for him than he is able to answer within his available time, I will coordinate with him to address them in turn.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Owens back to our Foolish fold, and please be sure to take full advantage of this uncommon opportunity to engage in direct dialogue with the CEO of a prospective investment. My regular readers know I have selected Alexandria Minerals as my largest personal position among exploration resource companies, and I have viewed the recent retracement of the shares as a welcome opportunity to increase that stake. But everything I have to say about this company and the opportunity I believe it represents, I have said before. Today is about giving you all an opportunity to explore the company on your own terms, ask your questions as they occur to you, and make your own investment decisions accordingly. I hope you enjoy the process, and appreciate the opportunity.
Welcome back, Dr. Owens! And thank you in advance for joining us here.
