Finally management find somewhere to spend some of that cash. I don't know much about the Edna May operation but I suspect that Ramelius benefitted from being able to offer Evolution $40m cash upfront to it over. Some on hc are saying that Edna May was a marginal operation and Jake Klein has dudded the Ramelius team. Maybe.

But my own view is that I'd rather have them trying to make a go of two mining operations than for them to have one operation and a stack of idle cash. In addition to there being talk of an additional area at Edna May that may be mineable I'm hoping that Ramelius will hoover up some smallish stranded gold fields in the Edan May surrounds much as they did with Kathleen Valley and Vivien feeding into Mt Magnet.

Yeah it's a bit of a mystery. Everyone on hc seems to be playing pin the tail on the donkey regarding what the management need the extra dough for. The management's stated reason of needing it to speed up a few things around Mt Magnet strikes me as a bit feeble seeing as you say they already have heaps in the kitty. I can only think that they have their eye on an asset and think that it is better if they offer cash.

I know lots of holders are dirty that the company appears to be empire building rather than paying dividends but personally I do not invest in speculative juniors looking for income. RMS, like most goldies, has had an amazing price recovery but it is still a long way down from its glory days just after the gfc.

Have to wonder why on the same day they announce a quarterly with having almost $50M in cash, no debt and undrawn facilities of $10M operations generating heaps of cash they go and dilute existing shareholders with $25M placement at 50c. Yes the VWAP 20 price was only 52.9 the price over the preceding 10 days was significantly higher. Jeeves

9 February 2016

For Immediate Release

HALF YEAR PROFIT GUIDANCE & FORWARD GOLD SALES

• Profit guidance for six months to 31 December 2015 of A$28.7 million

• Additional forward gold sales of 60,000 ounces at a forward price of A$1,600/oz

Half Year Profit Guidance FY2016

The Directors of Ramelius Resources Limited (ASX: “RMS”) are pleased to advise that

the Company is expected to report a half year pre-tax profit for the six months to 31

December 2015 of A$28.7 million. Gross margin generated from operations for the half

year is expected to reflect a surplus of A$25.5 million, an improvement of 231% from the

A$7.7 million surplus in the previous corresponding period.

Ramelius advises that the pre-tax half year profit for 31 December 2015 is based on

internal management accounts and subject to completion of the half year audit review.

Forward Gold Sales

The Company has forward sold an additional 60,000 ounces of gold at a flat forward

price of A$1,600 per ounce. The gold price achieved enables Ramelius to secure a solid

margin at a time of high price volatility. Total forward gold sales now represents ~50% of

production compared to ~40% previously and extends over 2 years to December 2017.

Ramelius Managing Director, Mark Zeptner today said:

“The half year financial result supports the Company’s claims of continued

operational improvement, with a steadily performing Mt Magnet gold mine,

combining nicely with high margin production from the Kathleen Valley operation

near Leinster. It is also particularly pleasing that the Company has been able to

complete the upfront capital development of the Vivien project both without drawing

down on the finance facility and increasing our cash balance all the while.

The additional forward sales are in line with our risk management strategy by

delivering a portion of cash flow certainty whilst retaining exposure to gold price

upside. Locking in a A$1,600 per ounce forward sales price secures a robust

operating margin at a level that has only been seen a handful of times over the past

few years.”

Yeah surfer and they're in the great position of having the readies, the steady income and the available production capacity to keep picking off smaller high grade fields that are within trucking distance of Mt Magnet. Also apparently they are due to report on some follow up drilling they have been doing in one of the pits at Mt Magnet.

Like most goldies Ramelius is a long way away from its hay days but on the other hand it has rewarded recent buyers of the stock in rising from around 6 cents to now be above 30 cents.

Worth looking at this stock again, Good reports, nearly $ 40 million in cash and gold and no debt. Bought in a few days ago at 29c. Monthly charts look like going a lot higher.

Another one worthy of consideration is BLK. Look at the all in all costs. Still a little way from production but they have their gold prospects plus a 25% in Nova. biggrin.gif

Board approves mining commencement of the Vivien project.

This asset has the lowest group AISC of $A990, group AISC now comes down to $A1200, so with spot gold today trading at $A1532 RMS is very profitable.

This is academic in reality since the current gold sentiment is diabolical, with spot gold in USD likely to fall even further to test the 1150 area.

RMS seem adequately financed having sold forward 40% of production over the next 2 years @$A1570.

I see Evolution has announced that they picked up the Cowal operation for US$550m using a mix of debt and equity to fund it. Cowal sounds an impressive set-up going on how Evolution write it up: producing better than 200k oz a year from a single open pit operation at an all in cost less than $1000 per oz, with a more than 3 million oz of resources at 1.1g and lots of prospective areas still to be investigated. Of course Ramelius has gone kicking rocks close to big gold finds in Qld and Nevada in the past but have come with nothing but I suppose these things come down to the laws of probability: maybe Condobolin will end up being a second Cowal?

As an aside I have watched the boss of Evolution, Jake Klein, a bit since his days at SinoGold. He started out as a banker not a miner and seems a very positive character - another South African expat not lacking in self-confidence and innerdrive it seems. He has successfully turned Evolution into the mid-tier player that Newcrest said it would become when they hived off some of their assets to form Evolution. My only concern is whether they are growing by over-relying on debt and the assumption that the gold price at least holds at around these levels. Anyway that is a discussion best kept for the Evolution thread.
