Dekel Golan, chief executive of Charaat Gold Holdings Ltd (LON:CGH), says the company aims to become a producer via a starter project which could result in an overall re-rating of the project. The exploration and development company has assets in the Kyrgyz Republic which Golan believes can be put into production: “We’ve completed the feasibility study. We have the mining licence. We’ve acquired the land of the property. We are ready to get to the next step.” It is also Golan’s belief Charaat will eventually be taken over by a mid-sized gold producer, but an acquisition is not contingent on the company becoming a gold producer first.

It’s been a busy week for Africa-focused agriculture and timber company Obtala Resources PLC (LON:OBT) as non-executive director Miles Pelham has been elevated to the position of non-executive chairman. The firm also released a broad strategic plan to grow the Africa-based agriculture, forestry and retail group, and agreed to terms for a full settlement of US$900,000 from Basic Materials Limited. New chairman Pelham tells Proactive the company has had to “adapt and move with the times” meaning it is now “strongly focused on forestry and agriculture, which we feel is a very promising sector to be in”. Francesco Scolaro has stepped down as executive chairman, and Pelham says his key aim is to expand revenue, by “scaling up a forestry business that is currently producing 5% of its potential to 50% potential to 80%”.

Gold miner Petropavlovsk (LON:POG) has had a busy week, entering into an agreement with Russia's Alliance Mining Group and Lexor Group to acquire Amur Zoloto, an established gold company that has production and development assets in the Khabarovsk region in the far east area of Russia. Meanwhile, it has also completed a joint venture with GMD Gold to finance the completion of the construction and commissioning of Petropavlovsk's pressure oxidation (POX) hub project at the Pokrovskiy mine in the Amur region of the Russian Federation.

On the Amur Zoloto deal, he says that shareholders have been calling for the company to “bulk up” and the latest deal gives Petropavlovsk “very good quality reserves, very high grade in a highly prospective place”.

Philip O’Quigley, chief executive of Falcon Oil and Gas Ltd (LON:FOG), says the next 12 months are worry-free for the energy company. When asked about potential bottlenecks the CEO said: “We’re not using our own cash to do anything. We don’t have any debt. We don’t have any production so we’re not worried about the current price of oil. The drilling programme in Australia is all signed up and ready to go and most of the approvals and processes are already underway.” O’Quigley describes the recent technical assessment on its Australian shale discovery as “ticking all those wonderful boxes as to say yes this has the great potential of an unconventional play. All the preliminary indicators from a technical asset are really, really good.”

Richard MacDonald, President and chief executive of Axios Mobile Assets Corporation (CVE:AXA) comments on the news that the company has become the first pallet pooler with Safe Quality Food certification in the sanitation and hygiene services category. The company produces lightweight composite pallets, made of a proprietary US Food and Drug Administration compliant compound. They are currently being used by six large egg producers to transport goods to distribution centres for large retailers, and MacDonald says the pallets are “another added arrow in the quiver of biosecurity for our clients”. The pallets are sanitized on site at its facility in Ohio and although this means the upfront costs are more than traditional wood, MacDonald tells Proactive that the initial upfront costs are covered by the money saved on repairs, meaning its margins “aren't really affected”.

Rose Petroleum PLC (LON:ROSE) has moved to substantially de-risk the business following a strategic review of its portfolio of assets in Utah including the termination of its earn-in agreement governing ownership of its Mancos acreage, and agreeing to hand back the Cisco Dome field, wells, pipelines, gas tap, gas plant and all the equipment to Rockies Standard Oil Company. Chris Eadie, chief financial officer, tells Proactive Investors “we felt, with oil price in the range that it is now and against the backdrop of a very large portfolio with high land costs etc that it was sensible to right-size that acreage portfolio and focus on the most prospective acreage in order to make sure we can see ourselves through the current market conditions and be well positioned for the recovery when it comes. “We have to have a portfolio that we can not only fund in the current market but also which offers shareholders and all stakeholders a chance to see real value in the future,” he says. He also notes the company has “reduced costs, reduced liabilities and managed to hold on to the key part of our portfolio” adding that there is still “a number of other exciting options in the group which will hopefully realise value in the near future”.
