hi all..

 

first post.....

 

here goes...

 

just having a quick look at (auz)..

 

commencement of mining in march 04...

 

at the blair nickel project...

 

this might just be a fairly good period for them...

 

well worth doing some research....

 

presently the share price at 25 cents...my guess that it needs too break 27 cents before the next leg...

once this happens then there might be plenty of blue sky...

 

keep an eye on this over the next month or so..this could be a big winner...

 

see below..

Great volume today. It needs to break 27 and then we are on our way.

http://www.asxboard.com/html/emoticons/puke.gif lme big green day - ni up 3.6%, cu up 3.9%

 

Everything is green on the London Metal Exchange tonight. Little by little Nickel is edging up - good rise tonight. It happened to MCR (mid tier producer), now TTR is on the way, AUZ building now to follow shortly. AUZ has high grade intersections and plenty of scope for new finds around Blair. 27c the next AUZ target. AUZO is spectacular - timing brilliant. http://www.asxboard.com/html/emoticons/lmaosmiley.gif

 

Copper is unstoppable - no pauses for Cu. Chinese New Year well and truely gone and China's multitude of factories planning and pumping out orders. Emails from desperate buyers proliferating for metals consignments to China. When will it stop? After the Olympics? Here are the figures. Check for yourself. AVL best Cu stock and still languishing - production about to double and AIM listing to happen. Get into AVLO and grin. http://www.asxboard.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif

MINING PROGRESS
Progress on stage 1 underground capital development has been excellent, with the two cross-cuts
accessing Area 57 from the existing decline now more than one third complete and ahead of
schedule. First ore production is anticipated by March, with every effort being made to
commence ore mining at the earliest opportunity. In addition to ore reserves within the mine
plan, attention is being paid to identifying unmined remnant blocks close to existing development
in the upper levels of the mine that can be readily brought into production.

NEW MASSIVE SULPHIDE TARGETS IDENTIFIED
The major surface EM geophysical survey over an extensive area stretching from Blair South to
the Marshall prospect has already identified four conductors (named Triumph, BSA, Rocket and
Indian) that may represent massive sulphides (refer figure 1), and further targets may be defined
before the completion of the survey at the end of January 2004.
The Triumph and BSA EM anomalies are of particular significance as they are located north and
south of the Blair South prospect, where previous drilling has intersected nickel sulphides
grading up to 2.3%. A previous shallow percussion hole directly adjacent the Triumph EM
anomaly yielded a high-grade intercept (1.52m @ 4.3% Ni) from 21m depth. Similarly at the
BSA EM anomaly, shallow drill intersections overlying the contact position and EM conductor at
depth include 6m @ 1.05% Ni and 2m @ 1.04% Ni.
Fixed loop EM (FLEM) surveys will be conducted over these and other EM nickel targets to
assist in effective drill positioning on completion of the current MLEM survey, ahead of followup
drill testing
EXPLORATION DRILLING PROGRAM
Exploration drilling planned for February/March will include 8,500 metres of mixed
RAB/Aircore/RC drilling to test a number of discrete gold and nickel sulphide targets. A gold-insoil
anomaly at Micks Hill prospect will be tested in order to identify potential shallow open pit
gold resources. Significantly, the 300m long soil anomaly at Micks Hill is located about 1
kilometre along strike to the north west from the Goat/18 Footer prospect. Previous results from
sparse drilling between these two prospects has been encouraging, with gold mineralisation now
known to extend for 2.5 kilometres up to the tenement boundary with HarmonyÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢s Golden Ridge
gold mine.
At the Flying Squirrel (formerly Au3) prospect, south east of Blair nickel mine, drilling will test
for extensions to the known mineralisation beneath a 600m x 300m gold-in-soil anomaly.
Previous RC drilling tested only a limited portion of this anomaly. Best drill results to date
include 10m @ 4.54 g/t Au from 3m depth (including 1m @ 24 g/t Au). The mineralisation
appears to be open in all directions. This mineralised trend appears contiguous with a dominantly
soil-covered north west trending structure with coincident gold-in-soil anomalism over a 6 km
strike length. Further systematic drilling of this potentially significant untested structure is
anticipated.
A portion of the mainly soil covered Western Ultramafic unit will be tested by reconnaissance
RAB drilling. Previous soil and auger drill sampling by WMC showed this area to be prospective
for nickel sulphides.
RC drilling is proposed to follow up significant deeper nickel targets from the MLEM/FLEM or
the RAB/AC drilling
HEDGING COVER
As part of risk management strategy for the Blair project, agreement was reached with project
financier Rothschild to hedge 540 tonnes of nickel. The hedging program is structured at two
levels in order to maximum return to the Company. At level one, nickel price is hedged in US

dollar and corresponding US dollar revenue stream is hedged in Australian dollar to protect from
the appreciation in Australian dollar exchange rate. In line with this strategy, 360 tonnes of
nickel have been hedged achieving an average price of $AUD19, 500 per tonne of nickel with an
average exchange rate of 0.7277.
In addition to hedging nickel price and AUD/USD exchange rate, the company has entered into a
call option to lock in the USD/AUD exchange rate at a maximum of 0.75 for the USD revenue
from stage 1 that is unhedged.
The combination of these two hedging strategies will generate an estimated additional A$800,000
to budgeted cash flow.

I am new to trading this last year. I find some market aspects hard to follow.

 

For example, this morning on open I sold AUZO (20c option due 31-Mar-04) at 5.5c and bought AUZ at 23.5c. And surprise, surprise AUZO traded at 5.5c all day and there is still a buyer at 5.5c for 110,500 AUZO on close at 4:10pm.

 

AUZ averaged 24.9c today for a normal volume. And what's more I had bid 24.5c for the AUZ I got at 23.5c. Some nervous nellie must have dumped AUZ on open. Hope he comes back tomorrow morning. I was planning to convert my stub of 20,000 AUZO options. However these on market conversion trades are less trouble and cheaper to boot.

 

I originally had 120,000 AUZO aquired at an averaged-down price of 4.1c over 13-Oct to 2-Dec 2003. I have now sold all these AUZO off from 3-Feb to 2-Mar this year at an average price of 5.6c. Never expected this late correction so am a bit under what I had anticipated. Still happy with the outcome on AUZO though of 34% gain all up or $1,690 on my $4,910 in less than five months. I'm collecting more AUZ now. So far I have 19,000 at an average of 23.1c. Please come back for breakfast Mr Mystery Dumper - I wait in anticipation with open arms.

 

I see AUZ as a no risk stock with huge upside. I visualise AUZ as the thrid train on a line following TTR which in turn is following MCR.

 

Days of wonder. http://www.asxboard.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif Here to harvest the market of dreams.

Sandybeaches just posted a report on SHN on the SHN thread and at the bottum was a short paragraph on AUZ, I thought you might like to know.

Reading their report this morning "AUZ" valued their SP @ .27 with nickel average @ US$12500 per Ton.

 

With a 10% increase per ($US1375) ton "they" value it @ 31c.

 

Nickel Cash is now $US14205 which is a 13% increase from the time of their estimated value.

 

Lets see if the market agrees with these estimates.

 

I hold AUZ
