Speedy's Top 6 Gold Miners 2012'



April 09, 2012 – Comments (15) | RELATED TICKERS: AUQ.DL , CLGRF

I just can;t resist adding the following company, placing it at number 1. The valuation is too compelling not too. 


Petaquilla Minerals - Based solely in Panama and its flagship molejo project, at least until last Aug 11, when it acquired some attractive assets via the Iberian acquisition. it;s Panamanian assets already provide a significant production growth profile as 3 nearby open-pit mine will push aggregate annual production to approximately 160-175k by 2015, up from 100k projected in 2012. Due to rather significant by-product Ag and Zn credits, cash costs have averaged $557 since commercial production commenced in late 2009.

The recent acquisition was very strategically smart as the main asset Lomero-Poyatos, is nearly fully permitted and will soon enter the construction phase , contributing to annual production in approx 2 yrs. By 2016, this mine will add approximately 150-175k Au and 40m lbs of Cu [increasing to over 100m lbs by 2018].

Petquilla will also be spinning off its infrstructure arm 1 for 4.

Trailing p/e is 2x, 2012 P/e is 1.54 and 2014 is <1

That's one I've never examined, and as always I appreciate the tip. mcap sure looks slim for the production scale, and I look forward to doing some dd.

"Brigus Gold reports 26.83 grams per tonne gold over 15.50 metres at the contact zone on the Black Fox complex "

Also reported that they expect lower cash costs going forward.

What's it going to take for these shares to break out? This is extremely positive news...

"Brigus hits Q1 production targets"

Even with this news, and increased insider buying the shares seem stagnant. Great spot to establish a new position or continue to add to an existing one. I know I am.

Hello Speedy,

I started a small position in Petaqullia minerals. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.  I have a few questions for you about the company before I consider taking up a larger position.  If you do not know the anwsers, do you think they are good questions to ask the company?

Do you know what stock piled ounces means? 

Are they gold ounces actually stock piled by the company? 

If so, is the stock piled gold reflected in their book value?

Is gold stock piled included in the companies cash per share? 

What does gold poured mean? 

Is gold poured equal or related to gold sold in a quarter?  

Is gold poured related to gross revenue? 

Thank you for your time and DD

Yeah I am glad I only have a small position in petaquilla minerals. I don't want to sell shares at 0.32 but I may.  I am not buying any more until things are cleared up.  Speedy do have an advice in this situation?

On the flip side PPP, my largest position is showing that it's share price can actually move up. I also suggested that PPP try to pick up KBX on the cheap!!
