The disappointments continue for Australian miner Red5 at the Siana gold project in thePhilippines with disappointing performance continuing into October and damaging hopes of 18,000oz production in the December quarter.

After battling an ocean of silt and debris in the bottom of the pit, Red5's September quarter gold-silver dorÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâ€Â ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚¬Ãƒ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚¢ÃƒÆ’ƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚© shipments to Metalor in Geneva totalled just 3,369oz gold and 5,953oz silver.

Cash operating costs were $A1,382/oz and total operating costs $1,797/oz, against an average gold price received of $US1,697/oz. With waste stripping costs amounting to $A3.91M, EBITDA from operations was $840,000 and translated to a net loss of $1.66M.

The post-quarter problems have been caused by mechanical failures in the MMD Sizer crushing unit and pit dewatering pump.

Red5 says with management changes the mine fleet efficiency has improved although it will take some time to achieve acceptable sustainable improvements.

The above was from mining net last year.

Yes I know that they have just enough to cover their expenses as projected. Maybe even a little to spare.

But from past experience with this company.....Things just seem to crop up that cost money and time.


So .... if the All In Price is too high then astute investors will probably stay away for now. Those who invested at 10 Cts are certainly future investors, for that injection of funds is a very long dated one....with some hurdles to jump.


Waiting for the next batch of GOOD news...to renew my interest. But Flower's All in Price makes one wonder why the investors even bothered to invest.


Something seems to be missing.

merc--that has been my point in gold producers ASX stock selection for many months now. To me it no longer matters what a chart is interpreted as saying.


All gold producers to make money have to cover their all in sustaining production costs by a % margin in any currency--or continual rights issues and eventual bankruptcy are inevitable.


I also now ignore pure gold explorers, in todays climate you want nourishment not punishment.


So in effect that makes ASX gold producers stock selection dead easy.


Spot POG right now--USD1213--AUD1387.


If your chosen stock reports in USD it must have an AISC of under USD1000.

If reporting in AUD it must have an AISC of under $A1200.


Ideally, given the turmoil in the world it should also be located on Australian soil---no Sovereign risk issues.

Two years later, and the mojo is a-building. The Darlot mine is operational, but not large or with a multi-year future. King of the Hills, on the other hand, is incrementally an exciting project, with 3 mill Resource and a recent 1.45mill Maiden Reserve announcement.

- Just got $20mill Working Capital facility through Macquarie

- and presenting at Diggers and Dealers


Most of the news has come out since May, and the Share Price has risen accordingly, from around 10c to nudging 30c today. A rising gold price does help!

  • Mineral Resource of 4.12Moz and Ore Reserve of 2.4Moz
  • First gold produced on 05 June 2022
  • Project delivered on schedule and within budget
  • Reconciled KOTH grades within 1% of the expected material grade of ore mined at this stage of the open pit cutback

✓ Low cost mill in highly strategic location with capacity to process satellite ore sources across the Leonora region
✓ Experienced management team with strong project development skill set ... ex Evolution, Glencore, Xstrata
