Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) Appoints Drilling Contractor to Commence Drilling at the Moonshine Magnetite Project.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note the announcement today from Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (“Macarthur”) that it has engaged Orbit Drilling Pty Ltd (“Orbit Drilling”) to commence an infill drill program at its Moonshine Magnetite Project at Lake Giles (“Project”) in the Yilgarn region of Western Australia.


  • Macarthur has contracted Orbit Drilling to complete a 30 hole infill program at the Moonshine Magnetite Project.
  • The drill program has been planned to upgrade the Inferred Mineral Resource estimate to a Measured Mineral Resource of approximately 100 million tonnes (“Mt”) at the Project.
  • Drill-hole planning was conducted by CSA Global Pty Ltd (CSA), Macarthur’s independent geological consultants.
  • The Measured Mineral Resource will underpin the bankable feasibility study (“BFS”) of the Project to be completed in 2019.

Drilling Program

Macarthur states that the drilling program is designed to coincide with the BFS for the Project to be undertaken in 2019.  Mining and processing studies will be based on Measured Mineral Resources to provide greater confidence in the outcomes of the study. The program aims to convert approximately 100 Mt of the Inferred Mineral Resource to a Measured Mineral Resource at the Moonshine deposit. Drill planning has been completed by CSA Global, who completed the early resource modelling and estimations for the Moonshine Magnetite Project.

The drilling program is also planned to obtain diamond core for the purpose of further metallurgical test-work. Diamond core is required for the BFS to refine the process flow design and provide greater understanding of ore variability. This metallurgical test-work program will commence mid-way through the drilling program as core becomes available.

Drilling is planned to commence in early May on receipt of required drilling permits, with an initial campaign of approximately 12 weeks.

Moonshine Magnetite Project

Macarthur states that the Moonshine Magnetite Project contains an Inferred Mineral Resource consisting of 1,316 Mt @ 30.1% Fe.

Cadence holds approximately 10% of the issued equity interest in Macarthur, which is an Australian mining exploration company focused primarily on iron ore, nickel, lithium and gold in Western Australia. It also has a lithium project in Nevada, USA.

Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: “Following the take off agreement recently announced between Macarthur and Glencore, the Cadence team are delighted with the subsequent pace of developments at the Lake Giles Moonshine Magnetite Project. We look forward to the next phase of developments following the drilling programme.”

Ian Pollard – Telecom Plus #TEP Delivers New Records

Telecom Plus TEP delivered record revenue, profits and dividends in the year to the 31st March, with growth and momentum becoming significantly faster.  The impact of a warm winter and the Ofgem price cap have led to expectations that pre-tax profits will be towards the lower end of previous guidance at around £56m.  For 2020 however it is expected that accelerating growth will lead to  adjusted profit before tax of between £60m and £65m and a 10% increase in the total dividend to 57p per share, compared to this years 4% rise to 52p per share,

Countryside Properties plc CSP reports solid trading in the 6 months to the 31st March, with completions up by 43%, the private average selling price down by 4% and a strong forward order book up 49%. After a slow start to the year, the spring selling season is described as having been robust. Completions are expected to be weighted towards the second half.

Bunzl plc BNZL Group revenue in the first quarter from the 31st December increased by 4% at actual exchange rates whilst at constant exchange rates the rise was 2.5%. The rate of underlying revenue growth however slowed during the quarter due to mixed macroeconomic and market conditions across the countries in which the Group operates, especially in North America.

ZOO Digital Group ZOO reports that the financial outturn for 2019 is frustrating and has been impacted by market shifts and client disruption, The company has already disclosed that planned investment has impacted on profitability to such an extent  that adjusted EBITDA in the second half will be around break-even at around $0.5m.

SEGRO plc SEGRO has continued to grow well during the quarter commencing on the 1st January. Increasing occupancy, uplifts from rent reviews and renewals and development activity, all contributed to securing £21 million of new headline rent. 44 projects are currently under construction, 72% of which are already leased, and  expected to generate £57 million of annualised rent. The vacancy rate has reduced to 4.4 per cent with decrease since December reflecting strong lettings of both existing and recently completed speculative space.

Dialight plc DIA continues to work on its recovery and global end markets continue to be robust.The Board expects further progress to be made in 2019 and the Group’s results to be heavily weighted towards the second half.

A sustainable future for local shops – LocoSoco Group Plc #LOCO

Local shops are a focal point for any community. They are part of its history and part of its story. Without them our villages and towns become simple dormitories but sadly they are closing at an alarming rate. Independent traders are having to shut up shop due to the punishing economics created by out of town supermarkets and rising business rates. It’s not just retailers that suffer, there’s also a knock-on effect to other local businesses.  In rural areas the impact is perhaps more acutely felt.

But all is not lost. There are a growing number, 300 at the last count, of local shops that are being turned into community owned enterprises.

There are a number of  organisations set up to help communities in this predicament. The Plunkett Foundation (, helps rural co-ops to develop, and Brighter Futures Together ( offers advice on how to help communities take back ownership of their prized assets.

Although a vibrant and committed community can activate this support it sadly doesn’t change the dynamics of the market.

We have arguably been sleep-walking to this point but are now starting to wake up to the fact that ‘keeping local alive’ benefits everyone. LocoSoco was born from this recognition and believe there are other approaches to levelling the playing field for local shops.

The current drive for sustainabilIty is a big opportunity. Buying what we need and reducing waste should work well for a retailer that manages numerous small transactions rather than 1 or 2 large ones. Refil models for cleaning products or food staples would be one such way to ensure sustainability is commercially attractive. In addition harnessing the power of the web would enable a local shop to sell a wider range of goods to a larger customer base. It needn’t stock them, they can be ordered and collected. The concept is well understood by consumers. That additional in-store footfall will also create incremental revenue.

Local shops and the communities they serve and are waking up to the fact that they can take greater control of their economic environment.  LocoSoco is focused on helping them realise that potential and are currently working with a growing number of communities and their local shops to help them become part of a sustainable revolution.

Ian Pollard -“Robust” Card Factory #CARD Sees Profits Fall 8.3%

Card Factory plc CARD claims a robust performance in a challenging consumer environment for the year to the 31st December. Unfortunately looking at the actual figures, robust must mean different things to different people.. True, revenue rose by 3% although on a  like-for-like basis sales were flat. However profit before tax fell by 8.3%, EBITDA by 8.7% and basic earnings per share by 12%. Cover for the ordinary dividend fell from 2.03x to 1.89x

Galliford Try plc GFRD is undertaking a strategic review which will reduce the size of the Construction business. It is anticipated that as a  result profitability will be reduced by £30m-£40m below current consensus analysts’ forecasts. The damage reflects a reassessment of some legacy and current contracts, the effect of some recent adverse settlements and the costs of the restructure. The single largest element relates to the Queensferry Crossing venture where costs have increased.These are in  addition to the claim in respect of the completed Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route, and the previously disclosed £38m work in progress balance in respect of three contracts for a single client, Significantly management appears to have avoided laying any blame at its own door.

JD Sports Fashion JD reports record results for the 52 weeks to the 2nd February with revenue up by 49,2% and EBITDA by 26.8%. Profit before tax rose by 15.4% and the total dividend is increased from 1.63p per share to 1.71. No need to worry about the meaning of robust, there, with total like for like sales growth in global Sports Fashion fascias of more than 6%.


G4S plc GFS updates for the three months to the end of March 2019 that Group revenue was 4.8% higher than the first quarter of last year, with growth in all regions and divisions.. Good progress is being made with the separation review which has the aim of turning the group into two strong, independent businesses that are able to take advantage of their market leading positions. The Board believes that this has the potential to unlock substantial shareholder value.

ECR Minerals (AIM:ECR) Windidda Gold Project Update – Yilgarn Region Australia

ECR Minerals plc (LON:ECR), the precious metals exploration and development company, is pleased to announce the Company has commenced processing and interpretation of airborne and ground geophysics in respect of the Company’s 100% owned Windidda gold project (the “Project”) in Western Australia.

Readers are advised to consult the Company’s previous announcement outlining the submission of licence applications by the Company to form the Windidda gold project:


  • Consultants instructed by ECR are now completing geophysical data processing and modelling to determine structural trends within, and the depth to, an interpreted buried Archaen greenstone belt at the Project;
  • As reported in January 2019 nine new licence applications which comprise the Windidda Project have been submitted covering approximately 1,600 square kilometres of the Yilgarn Craton;
  • The application areas have been identified as a potential greenstone hosted orogenic gold exploration opportunity with significant potential to contain Archaen greenstones buried beneath cover;
  • The under cover greenstone exploration model has been successfully tested to date by Greatland Gold (LON:GGP) at its Ernest Giles project located approximately 125km east of ECR’s Windidda gold project;
  • The processing and interpretation of airborne and ground geophysics is an important element in the determination of high profile drill targets, expected to be amenable to cost effective air core drilling enabling the rapid assessment of the potential for gold mineralisation.

Craig Brown, Chief Executive Officer commented: “I am pleased to announce that we have launched the next crucial stage in the development of our understanding of scale of the Windidda gold project.

The work being undertaken will greatly assist our understanding of the Project and help us to focus on the higher profile target areas for follow up drilling.

The feedback from this work will be available to the Company shortly and will enable us to advance our operational planning, including the development of key drill targets in our search for high impact gold mineralisation.”

Iron ore prices surge on renewed uncertainty over Brazilian and Australian supply

Article by Business Insider – April 1st 2019

  • Iron ore spot markets rose strongly across the board on Friday.
  • Uncertainty over supply disruptions in Brazil and Australia, along with firmer steel prices, likely explain the size of the gains recorded during the session.
  • China’s official manufacturing and non-manufacturing PMIs both improved in March compared to the levels reported in February.
  • The Caixin-IHS Markit China manufacturing PMI report for March will be released on Monday.

Iron ore prices rallied on Friday, supported by renewed uncertainty over Brazilian and Australian supply.

According to metal Bulletin, the spot price for benchmark 62% fines jumped 2.5% to $86.81 a tonne, logging its largest gain in two weeks.

The gains in higher grades were even larger with 65% fines soaring 3% to $99.30 a tonne, leaving it just below the multi-year highs struck in early February.

Lower grades also rallied with 58% fines adding 1.6% to $72.14 a tonne.

The across the board gains coincided with renewed uncertainty over the outlook for Brazilian and Australian iron ore supply, two of the largest seaborne exporters globally.

On Thursday, Brazilian miner Vale lowered its iron ore sales forecasts to a range of 307 to 322 million tonnes this year, down from an earlier estimate of 382 million tonnes.

“The price implications from Vale’s guidance and commentary are significant,” said Vivek Dhar, Mining and Energy Commodities Analyst at the Commonwealth Bank.

“Given the physical nature of iron ore markets, the impending physical tightness to face iron ore markets strengthens our conviction that iron ore prices will rise above to over $90 a tonne in the short term.”

Daniel Hynes, Senior Commodities Strategist at ANZ Bank, is another who expects iron ore prices will remain supported in the period ahead.

“We see a sizable disruption lingering over the market for the near future,” he said, referring to supply disruptions in Brazil.

“Supply-side responses are likely, but will be far short of what is required to meet the needs of the market in 2019. As a result, iron ore exports will fail to meet expected demand by around 35–40 million tonnes in 2019.

“This should keep prices well supported in 2019.”

Along with uncertainty over the outlook for Brazilian supply, news of operational disruptions at facilities owned by Rio Tinto in Western Australia was another factor that helped to propel prices higher during the session.

On Friday, the miner issued force majeure notices to some iron ore customers due to damage from tropical cyclone Veronica, which hit Western Australia earlier this week, according to Reuters.

Rio said that it was “currently assessing the impact of the damage sustained at the Cape Lambert A port facility and is working with its customers to minimise any disruption in supplies”.

A force majeure is invoked when a miner cannot perform an obligation under a contract due to circumstances outside of its control.

Like spot markets, the news helped to spark a rally in Chinese iron ore futures on Friday.

In Dalian, the most actively traded May 2019 contract jumped to as high as 638.5 yuan before closing the session at 631.5 yuan. That was well above the 613.5 yuan level it finished on Thursday evening.

Stronger steel prices also helped to support iron ore futures at the margin with rebar and hot-rolled coil finishing trade at 3,758 and 3,741 yuan respectively, up from 3,695 and 3,673 yuan on Thursday evening.

As seen in the scoreboard below, those moves were largely sustained in overnight trade on Friday.

SHFE Hot Rolled Coil ¥3,732 , 0.67%
SHFE Rebar ¥3,754 , 0.72%
DCE Iron Ore ¥632.50 , 1.85%
DCE Coking Coal ¥1,229.00 , -0.08%
DCE Coke ¥1,980.00 , 0.23%

Trade in Chinese commodity futures will resume at midday AEDT on Monday.

In news that will likely bolster sentiment across the steel and bulk commodity complex further, activity levels across China’s manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors improved in March, driven in part by booming construction activity.

The government’s manufacturing and non-manufacturing PMIs rose to 50.5 and 54.8 respectively in March, up from 49.2 and 54.3 in February.

A reading above 50 indicates that activity levels improved from a month earlier. The distance away from 50 reveals how fast the improvement occurred.

The separate Caixin-IHS Markit China manufacturing PMI report for March will be released today. In the past, markets have tended to pay more attention to this report than the official government release.
