Amur Minerals (AMC) has continued its run of mainstream media coverage – via The Times. Here the paper was looking to pin the tail on the M&A donkey, naming Vladislav Sviblov as the man with £100m burning a hole in his pocket with regard AMC.

The Times backed up its call saying that Sviblov’s shopping list has included Highland Gold and Trans Siberian Gold. With a close at 3.88p AMC shares are trading at a market cap of just over £50m, quite a discount to the putative take out price. What might goad investors into a lesser discount, would of course be the arrival of other interested parties to Amur – leading to a bidding war. Given Nickel’s current strategic value in the EV space particular, such a scenario cannot be ruled out.
The San Leon (SLE) saga continues, but may be nearing its conclusion according to yesterday’s RNS. The independent oil and gas production, development and exploration company focused on Nigeria, said that its investment in the Oza oil field in Nigeria is now proceeding with the following amendments. On 1 September 2020, San Leon announced that it had conditionally agreed to provide a $7.5 million loan to Decklar Resources, via 10% per annum unsecured subordinated loan notes of Decklar. Decklar is the holder of a Risk Service Agreement with Millenium Oil and Gas Company Limited in relation to Oza. San Leon also announced that it would conditionally subscribe for a 15% equity interest in Decklar at nominal value. SLE now says Decklar’s advancement of the project in the interim period means that it is now committing funds on the back of greater clarity around the field performance, which should de-risk the project.

The company said high grade extensions to the Eastern Breccia 200m to the SE of previous drilling confirm the potential for a separate NW trending Eastern Breccia corridor to host Crescent Zone style high grade mineralisation. The most significant result seen outside of the South East Crescent Zone to date have been revealed, with HAD104: 62.5m @ 5.9g/t Au & 0.30% Cu from 1,546.5m including 49.4m @ 7.1g/t Au & 0.38% Cu from 1,554.6m.

After hiring a man from Mars yesterday, Chill Brands (CHLL) served up its interim results today.

Advance Energy (ADV), the energy company seeking growth through acquisition or farm-in to discovered upstream projects, provides the following corporate update. While not mentioning that investors in the stock ahead of the Buffalo-10 well have had something of a Charge of the Light Brigade experience, the company did say it has undertaken a review of its cost structure in order to significantly reduce costs. The Board has implemented measures to reduce costs by over 50% through a number of initiatives, including reducing salaries and Director fees by over 60%. Shares of ADV are down 94% over recent days, so perhaps salaries could have been reduced by this kind of quantum.
