Seems to be going gangbusters now.

In the period 2004-14 I made a series of good profits but I got bushwhacked in 2015 and swore I'd never touch it again.

But lo & behold earlier this year I was tempted and so far so more than good.

Spotlight on Perenti

Perenti (ASX: ASL) formerly known as Ausdrill, is a diversified mining services provider with key operations in Australia and Africa.

Perenti released its full year results this week, comfortably exceeding consensus expectations and its previous guidance by 5.0%. The strong result was driven by the outperformance of its underground mining services division.

We first invested in the business as we believed the market was overly concerned about the company's ability to renew its contracts and therefore underestimated the organic growth profile of the business. Our view was that Perenti would manage the contract renewal risk, secure new deals and successfully achieve $11.0 million in synergies that it gained from the acquisition of Barminco 12 months ago. We remain positive on the outlook for Perenti, which is driven by new contract wins and an asset sale program that will reduce gearing levels.

We hold Perenti as a market-driven investment in WAM Active (ASX: WAA) and WAM Capital (ASX: WAM).

Perenti closed up 15.0% this week.

Ausdrill axes workshop jobs
Josh ChiatKalgoorlie Miner
Friday, 11 January 2019 1:03PM
QUOTE
Kalgoorlie-born mining services giant Ausdrill has chopped at least 13 positions this week from its Goldfields workforce believed to be centred on its Boulder workshop after a restructure of its Australian exploration divisions.

In a letter seen by the Kalgoorlie Miner the company informed staff who could be affected about the redundancies, saying they came after a review of the operating model in the Kalgoorlie workshop.

“These volumes of work are not able to sustain the current size of the workshop and as a result a number of roles have been identified as no longer required,” a company representative wrote.

Responding to questions from the Kalgoorlie Miner, an Ausdrill spokesman confirmed 13 positions had been made redundant this week after the merger of its Ausdrill Northwest and Ausdrill Exploration businesses.

Massive SP drop this morning following their Project Update ann

QUOTE
Hummingbird Resources Plc (Hummingbird) – Yanfolila
African Mining Services (AMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Ausdrill (ASX: ASL) has
confirmed that following the recently advised security incident, mining operations at Yanfolila
are now operating at full capacity and development works have commenced at the Komana
West deposit.

Process Minerals International Pty Ltd (PMI) - Wodgina
Contract negotiations with respect to the Wodgina project continue with PMI. Whilst we remain
in discussions with PMI regarding the contract scope and possible opportunities beyond the
Wodgina project, we now expect the value of the contract to be approximately half the
previously announced $180 million over the initial three years.


Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines (KCGM) – Super Pit
Ausdrill advises that due to the recent wall failure at the Super Pit, our scope of works has
currently reduced by 35%
whilst the client reviews the longer-term mine planning. At this stage,
it is difficult to provide a definitive timeframe for the reduction and we continue to work closely
with KCGM as they develop their future plans.

Clash in Mali kills three at Ausdrill mine project
Peter WilliamsThe West Australian
Wednesday, 30 May 2018 12:32PM

QUOTE
At least three people in Mali have died in a clash between security forces and opponents of a mining project expansion in which WA contractor Ausdrill is involved.

Ausdrill today said it had confirmed that employees of its African Mining Services subsidiary were safe.

Hummingbird Resources, operator of the Yanfolila goild mine, said it understood the deaths occurred when a group of opponents acted to stop the company from carrying our site preparations

The company has been informed by the Malian National Guard that while upholding the rule of law, requested of them by the Government of Mali, a security incident occurred,” Hummingbird said in statement.

“Very regrettably, we have been informed that this incident has led to the loss of at least three lives(two of which are believed not to be Malian nationals).

“The company expresses its sincerest condolences to the families of the deceased and others affected by this incident.”

UK-listed Hummingbird said its employees and contractors were safe.

AMS has a $147 million, three-year contract to provide mining services for Yanfolila. It had expected to employ about 450 mostly local workers at the project.

Hummingbird said it had previously agreed with local community leaders, the Mali’s Ministry of Mines and local government to extend mining operations within its permit area to the Komana West deposit.

“In recent days, a limited number of people in the local area have disputed the company’s plan.” The company said the opponents had acted unilaterally to stop the preparatory work.

The Mali Government holds a 20 per cent stake in the mine. Hummingbird said 95 per cent of the workforce were Malian nationals.
