No comments on this stock for a year. I would like to start a discussion about what people think are former Leighton boss', Wal King's plans to turn this company around.


He is highly respected in Australia and seems everything he touched at Leighton's turned to gold.

Perth based Sundance Resources is seeking a multibillion dollar payout from the Republic of Congo after being stripped of its iron ore mining licence in the central African nation where China is casting a big shadow.


Two other Australian-based companies have also had iron ore mining and exploration rights stripped by the RoC, which then awarded them to a mystery company with no history in the region. The mystery company has been handed rights to about a billion tonnes of high grade iron ore by the RoC.



Sundance said on Monday that the RoC had issued decrees purporting to strip its subsidiary Congo Iron of the mining permit for the Nabeba iron ore project and re-issued the permit to Sangha Mining Development Sasu.


Sangha Mining has also been awarded permits and licences for iron ore projects that were stripped from ASX-listed Equatorial Resources and privately-owned Core Mining Congo.


Equatorial Resources said it considered the sudden awarding of the Badondo (Equatorial), Nabeba (Sundance) and Avima (Core) permits to Sangha Mining a "flagrant breach of the RoC (Congo) government's obligations under the mining code, the relevant mining conventions which exist between the permit holders and the RoC government, and international law".


Both Sundance and Equatorial said they had no knowledge of Sangha Mining and were not aware of any previous mining activity by the group in RoC.


Sundance said it would conduct a full investigation into the actions of the Congo and into Sangha Mining before an arbitration process Sundance has kicked off by issuing a notice of dispute and notice of expropriation to the Congo.
