Trending this week

URU Metals Plc (URU)

URU Metals made an announcement this week on its Zebediela Nickel Project which is located in Limpopo Province, South Africa. Their Project licences have been renewed for an additional two years and the management seem to be conducting cost savings by consolidating the three prospecting licences into one to reduce costs in the future. Part of the announcement is a new programme for 2017 that includes drill testing potential extensions of the nickel mineralisation, infill drilling, metallurgical studies and the completion of an updated mineral resource. Talk is of a potential cash raise to fund these operations. Do they have enough funds in place? Is this a good share to be in for a long term hold? With the Nickel prices seeming to be on the rise is now the time to find those under the radar stocks that have this resource in play?

Nu Oil and Gas (NUOG)

Nu oil and Gas this week has announced it has agreed Heads of Terms with PVF Energy Services Inc. They will work together to establish commercial production operations which contains the Garden Hill oil discovery, in Western Newfoundland. It is anticipated that the Heads of Terms will lead to the Parties entering into a detailed Definitive Operating Agreement within 120 days. The Agreement, which is expected to announce that PVF will assume responsibility for the operation of the licence area, and the associated operating costs. In exchange a profit sharing arrangement on any production generated whereby PVF will recover its operating costs after which it would be entitled to receive 40% of any subsequent profits, with the Company’s Canadian subsidiary receiving 60% of any profits generated.

Are you a holder? Are you happy with the deal that could be forthcoming? Do you see anyone else stepping in and making a better offer? Let me know on #STNUOG and tag me in @slarratt1

VAST Resources (VAST)

One of the most talked about shares earlier on in the year and now with two producing assets and a potential third to come on line. Share holders are scratching their heads as the share price has been halved in the last month. This week saw the announcement of the drill commencement to prove up their previous historical sampling that indicated that the tailings in place contain economic quantities of minerals, including 4,080 tonnes of copper, 6,640 tonnes of zinc, 3,100 tonnes of lead, 35 tonnes of silver and 309kg of gold in-situ. With the quarterly reports due soon and this potential news is now a good time to phase into Vast Resources? What are long term holders thoughts? When are peoples expectations of the sell off to stop?

My thought of the week

This week has seen the news that PM Thresea May cannot legally invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty. What will this do to our economy? In the coming week we will see the news cover the American ‘Clinton VS Trump’ campaigns come to a close as their supporters go to the polls, how does this effect us? With so much media coverage and so called ‘uncertainty’ could this be the primary cause of the recent gold prices showing signs of recovery? Is there more to come?

Seeing Machines (AIM: SEE)

Seeing Machines Limited is engaged in developing, selling and licensing products, services and technology to detect and manage driver fatigue and distraction, including continued market development to secure sustainable channels to market for the product. The Company’s segments include DSS (Mining), Guardian (Fleet) and Other. The Company is also engaged in developing driver-monitoring technology to be incorporated into passenger cars; entering commercial agreements with partners for the development, manufacturing and sale of products into target markets, and research and development of the Company’s processing technologies to support the development and refinement of the Company’s products. It offers System in Package (SiP), which is a processor platform available for mass-market applications. It offers driver monitoring system (DMS) technology. Its product, Guardian by Seeing Machines, includes an integrated Forward-Facing Camera.

For 15 years we’ve been helping computers make sense of people. We’ve done this by giving machines the ability to understand where someone is looking and by allowing vehicles to detect if their drivers are paying enough attention or are falling asleep. Together, we’ve helped make machines smarter, simpler and more seamless to use.


Founded in 2000 as a spin out from The Australian National University

  • Global leaders in Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS) technologies
  • 160 full-time staff – Australia, USA, Canada, Mexico, UK, Singapore
  • Technology commercialised in OEM and aftermarket transport safety products
  • Working with global partners to achieve greater market penetration
  • Building hardware, software licensing and royalty revenue streams
  • Close relationships with most automotive and truck manufacturers
  • Broad capabilities – human factors, machine learning, software, hardware
  • Building global aviation and rail businesses


Further anchored our position in 2016 as a leading operator sensing technology player in global

transport markets.

  • In the mining sector, we have transitioned to a licensing and recurring royalty based revenue model

driven by Caterpillar’s global Safety Services Division.

  • FOVIO, Seeing Machines’ automotive brand, is working with multiple global automotive OEMs and tier

one suppliers to bring intelligent driver-facing technology to the market over the next decade.

  • Repositioned the commercial fleet product from Seeing Machines Fleet 1.0 to Guardian and now

charting a new benefits and product led approach to global customer engagement directly and

through resellers.

  • The aviation business unit increased its market presence and confirmed customer interest through

the successful delivery of proof of concepts with aircraft manufacturers, major carriers, air traffic

control service providers and air force stake holders.

  • Rail partners, Progress Rail and Electro Motive Diesel, have completed 4 successful trials and are now

promoting technology as an aftermarket and OEM integrated safety technology.

  • We continue to develop and exploit our core IP to bring advanced head, face and eye tracking

technologies to market. The next phase of our journey will deliver applications that evolve from

sensing physiological characteristics into perceiving how you are.


Among other projects including Guardian, it seems the FOVIO chip they have developed is something that could go mainstream in Vehicles, depending on OEM Contracts.

Seeing Machines’ announcement today that it has launched its first generation ‘Fovio’ embedded hardware chip has sent the share price flying. The reason being it appears strengthen its technical leadership in transport tech for fatigue and distraction monitoring while also broadening its reach, towards a diverse range of Artificial Intelligence and ‘Internet of Things’ applications.

Lorne Daniel, analyst at house broker FinnCap, commented: “The latter is new, and hints at an even broader market than previously supposed. Current contracted OEM vehicle deliveries (assumed to mean GM 2017 CT6 Cadillac with SuperCruise) are on track to launch in 2017 as software; however, the FOVIO chips are likely to be used in the second generation rollout to the entire GM range as agreed in the follow-on OEM contract. Embedding the software in a chip reduces the cost and time to market for OEMs and their tier-1 suppliers, facilitating mass market rollout since driver distraction is becoming a critical issue for the industry.”

There has been no update on its automotive spin-out, although technical progress clearly continues. Ken Kroeger, chief executive officer of Seeing Machines, commented in the RNS: “I am delighted to announce the introduction of our FOVIO DMS Chip which, as a World first, further cements Seeing Machines’ position as global leader in the Driver Monitoring industry. The FOVIO Chip will greatly reduce the cost of DMS deployment, helping to accelerate not just our growth but mass market uptake of DMS technology in general. This product will become the key offering of FOVIO, our new stand-alone automotive business that is currently being structured and staffed.”
