Tom Becker, chief executive and President of Iofina (LON:IOF), says the iodine producer is still on track to meet its second-half target of 260-300 metric tonnes of output after a magnitude 4.7 earthquake close to its plant in Oklahoma. Iofina’s infrastructure and ability to produce iodine are intact, but the Oklahoma Corporation Commission’s (OCC) decision to reduce brine water, an essential ingredient to Iofina’s operations, will result in a drop in activity. Becker tells Proactive that Iofina and its partners don’t know when the restrictions will be lifted, but will be meeting with the OCC, and remain communicative with investors throughout .

Graphite producer StratMin Global Resources (LON:STGR) has taken the old Zanussi “appliance of science” advertising slogan to heart and used some new technology to discover significant additional mineralisation areas at its projects in Madagascar. Brett Boynton, chief executive, thinks the discoveries could be “the beginnings of a new company-maker episode for us”. The focus is very much on extracting the high-grade material to reduce stress on the processing plant. Meanwhile, Boynton gives some background on the improved balance sheet strength of its funding partner Bass Metals, which has left it better able to finance StratMin's plans to accelerate development of a new 12,000 tonnes per annum flake concentrate plant adjacent to the current processing facility.

The change of name to Vast Resources (LON:VAST) from African Consolidated Resources at the beginning of the year heralded the transition from an exploration junior to a producing junior, and a diversified one at that. Indeed, given the company's foray into Romania, the old name would have been an anomaly anyway. The company still has gold assets in Zimbabwe and recently achieved first gold pour there at its Pickstone-Peerless mine. Chief executive officer Roy Pitchford acknowledges that a Zimbabwe discount exists and weighs on the company's valuation but asserts that “grade is king”, and with 3.5mln ounces at Pickstone-Peerless, that is “a world class asset in anybody's book”, Pitchford says.

Alecto Minerals (LON:ALO) has long harboured the desire to operate in Zambia, one of Africa's most stable countries, and now it is poised to do so after acquiring the historic Matala and Dunrobin gold mines for a total possible consideration of just shy of £2mln. “Historic” does not mean mined out, however, as there are a number of targets that have yet to be drilled, while work done by the previous owners will reduce the cost of development, explained Mark Jones, chief executive of Alecto.

Richard Wolanski, finance chief at aircraft leasing company Avation (LON:AVAP), says 2016 will see the firm continuing to build and diversify its aircraft fleet and airline customer base. His comments follow a recent half-year trading update, which predicted higher annual profits despite facing interest payments on loans to expand the business. The company has issued the first US$100mln tranche of a US$500mln global medium term note programme in May 2015 to help it buy new aircraft.

Peter Shaw, chief executive of DP Poland (LON:DPP) says its latest store in Wroclaw is showing early promise as it benefits from its location in Western Poland’s largest city. It is also one of the country’s wealthiest cities with a student demographic, that at 100,000 strong, makes up a sixth of the entire population. Shaw tells Proactive the company is poised to take advantage of the student community as the DP Poland brand becomes more recognised with a rollout of the Dominos Pizza franchise that “will be in all major cities in the not too distant future.”

Speaking to Proactive, Parmar said the firm has seen a healthy mix of highly accretive acquisitions and a good dose of organic growth. Since its inception, CHT has integrated 11 healthcare services businesses, and the company now has 6000+ physicians on its books in the US.

Stephen Sanderson, chief executive of AIM-listed UK Oil & Gas (LON:UKOG) says a flow test in the next few months will determine how much oil can be extracted from Horse Hill in the Weald Basin, Southern England. The test will be a key milestone for the project and be specifically designed to test the Kimmeridge limestone and Portland sandstone formations. UKOG caused a stir in April after it claimed the Weald Basin – an area which spans Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Hampshire - may contain twice as much oil as already produced from the North Sea. Solo Oil, Alba Mineral Resources and Stellar Resources, along with UKOG, are all part of the Horse Hill consortium.

Chris Gilbert, chief executive of Fox Marble (LON:FOX), says he hopes to reveal encouraging grow in the company’s order book when the firm updates the market next month. His comments come after the firm revealed it is now on site at a new quarry in Malesheva, Central Kosovo where it is mining sought after milk-white marble. "The opening of this quarry is timely, as we've seen strong and growing interest in this stone," Gilbert says.

Aakash Nijhawan, M&A chief at Dubai’s national oil group - Emirates National Oil Company – explains the rationale behind the firm’s summer takeover of Dragon Oil. Baillie Gifford and Elliott Capital – Dragon’s two largest shareholders - agreed to accept an improved 800p per share offer by ENOC for Dragon in August this year. ENOC supplies jet fuel to Dubai International Airport, which carried more than 70 million international passengers last year. It recently build a new pipeline from its storage terminals to the airport to cope with an expected increase in demand and also plans to extend the pipeline to Dubai’s second hub, Al Maktoum International Airport.
