Alan Green talks inflation, BP #BP, Blue Prism #PRSM & Karelian Diamonds #KDR on UK Investor Magazine podcast

We once more welcome Alan Green back to the UK Investor Magazine Podcast for our weekly exploration of UK equities and global markets.

UK inflation was today’s topic of discussion before we drilled down into BP (LON:BP), Blue Prism (LON:PRSM) and Karelian Diamonds (LON:KDR).

UK inflation rose to 2.1% in May as fuel, recreational goods and clothing helped prices higher as the economy reopened. A reading of 2.1% is marginally above the Bank of England’s target rate of 2% but with signs prices could elevated, there may be concerns in some corners of the market that it will force the BoE to hike rates in an economy not fully recovered from the pandemic.

As a gauge of the market’s feeling around potentially higher rates in the future, GBP/USD spiked higher by 40 points to GBP/USD 1.4120 in immediate reaction, before falling back.

Fuel prices rose 17% year-on-year, the biggest jump since 2017 as oil prices continued their march higher.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS, ASX: MIO) to sharpen focus on iron ore delivery: Pilbara Gold and Copper assets and new Leonora Gold tenements to underpin new ASX listing.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) has announced that it intends to spin-out its non-iron ore assets in the Pilbara into Infinity Mining Limited (Infinity) (previously Macarthur Australia Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Macarthur). Infinity currently holds the Company’s Pilbara gold/copper/lithium tenements (Pilbara Assets) through Infinity’s subsidiary company, Macarthur Lithium Pty Ltd (MLi). The Company proposes to undertake an initial public offering of Infinity (IPO) and apply for its listing on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

Why the spin-out is positive for Macarthur shareholders

This strategy will fast track further exploration and the future development potential of the Pilbara Assets and allow Macarthur to focus solely on the development of its flagship iron ore projects situated at Lake Giles in the Yilgarn region of south-western, Western Australia. 

Infinity also holds an exclusive right to undertake due diligence on 10 historic gold/copper tenements in the Leonora area of the Central Goldfields region of Western Australia, held by Zanil Pty Ltd (Zanil) (Central Goldfields Assets). An independent technical report on the Pilbara Assets and the Central Goldfields Assets has been compiled to support a transaction, and Infinity and Zanil are in advanced discussions on the terms of a sale and purchase agreement. Subject to completion of satisfactory due diligence on the Central Goldfields Assets by Infinity, it is intended that those assets will be vended into Infinity following the listing of Infinity on ASX.

This combined asset exploration and development strategy means that Macarthur’s post listing shareholding in Infinity will have the potential to drive further value in Macarthur for the benefit of its shareholders.

The Company will provide further details with respect to the spin out transaction and IPO listing in a subsequent news release.

Link to the full announcement, including details of all Pilbara and Central Goldfields assets and work undertaken to date here https://finance.yahoo.com/news/macarthur-minerals-sharpen-focus-iron-120000717.html

Joe Phillips, Managing Director of Macarthur Minerals commented: “Macarthur’s board has carefully considered all available options and we believe the value of the Pilbara gold/copper/lithium assets is not reflected in the current share price of Macarthur and see this as a way to create additional value for shareholders via a priority IPO spin off to be listed on the ASX. The addition of the Central Goldfields Assets into the portfolio will provide the new company access to potential surface gold historically identified that may be Toll treated through regional gold mines. The new vehicle will evaluate opportunities outside of the iron ore space, and will ensure that Macarthur retains its primary focus on the Lake Giles Iron Project. The Company will provide further details with respect to the spin out transaction and IPO listing in a subsequent news release.”

Cadence Minerals Holding in Macarthur

Cadence holds approximately 1% 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.

Note to Editors:


Kavango’s 100% subsidiary in Botswana, Kavango Minerals (Pty) Ltd, is the holder of 14 prospecting licences covering 7,573.1km2 of ground, including 12 licences over a significant portion of the 450km long KSZ magnetic anomaly in the southwest of the country along which Kavango is exploring for Copper-Nickel-PGM rich sulphide ore bodies. This large area, which is entirely covered by Cretaceous and post-Cretaceous Kalahari Sediments, has not previously been explored using modern techniques.

The area covered by Kavango’s KSZ licences displays a geological setting with distinct similarities to that hosting World Class magmatic sulphide deposits such as those at Norilsk (Siberia) and Voisey’s Bay (Canada). 

The Norilsk mining centre is about 2,800km northeast of Moscow and accounts for 90% of Russia’s nickel reserves, 55% of its copper and virtually all of its PGMs. Kavango’s licenses in the KSZ display a geological setting with distinct geological similarities to the magmatic sulphide deposits at Norilsk. Magma plumbing systems are a key feature of these deposits.

Mosman Oil & Gas #MSMN – Falcon-1 Production Update

Mosman Oil and Gas Limited (AIM: MSMN) the oil exploration, development and production company, announces an update on the Falcon-1 well and the Stanley Project in East Texas, USA.

Falcon-1 (Mosman 50% working interest)

The Falcon-1 well was recompleted in a new zone last week and Mosman now confirms that the Falcon-1 well is producing gas and oil with no reported water. The flow is intentionally restricted with a 5/64 choke well to monitor the well performance. The production rate with this choke is c600 mmbtu/day (c105 boepd) and the well has been operating at this level since 12 June. Whilst this gas and oil production rate is similar to the recent production rate in the lower zone, the profit margin will be greater as operating costs will be reduced due to lower water disposal costs.

Production from this zone also verifies the wireline log interpretation of multiple hydrocarbon bearing zones in this well. This will enable an update of the geological model of this lease and the adjacent Galaxie lease.

Stanley (Mosman 15-19% working interest)

The Operator has advised that hot oil treatment of the surface pipeline was successful and enabled an increase in gross production from Stanley-3 from 40 to 65 bopd.

The Operator has also advised that Stanley-4 will be back on production this week. The decision has also been made to gravel pack Stanley-1 for sand control, in order to produce the well without needing workovers to remove sand from the wellbore or pumping equipment, and this well should also be back on production in the near future. 

Qualified Person’s Statement

The information contained in this announcement has been reviewed and approved by Andy Carroll, Technical Director for Mosman, who has over 35 years of relevant experience in the oil industry. Mr. Carroll is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.

Open Orphan #ORPH – Proposed Distribution in Specie & Notice of Results

Open Orphan plc (AIM: ORPH),  a rapidly growing specialist pharmaceutical services clinical research organisation (CRO) and a world leader in vaccine and antiviral testing using human challenge clinical trials , announces that, further to previous announcements, it proposes to make a distribution in specie of the entire issued share capital of its wholly-owned subsidiary Orph Pharma IP Company Limited (“Orph Pharma”) to Poolbeg Pharma Limited (“Poolbeg”), in return for the issue of new shares by Poolbeg (“Poolbeg Shares”) to shareholders of Open Orphan on the register at close of business on 17 June 2021 (“Relevant Shareholders“). 

The approval of Open Orphan shareholders to such distribution in specie was granted at Open Orphan’s general meeting held on 29 April 2021. 

It is expected that Open Orphan ordinary shares will be marked “ex rights” at 8.00 a.m. on 16 June 2021.

It is also expected that the board of Open Orphan will convene formally to make such distribution in specie on 18 June 2021 and that Relevant Shareholders will receive one Poolbeg Share for every 2.98 ordinary shares held in the Company, with resultant entitlements rounded down to the nearest whole number. Prior to the making of the distribution in specie, Open Orphan and Poolbeg intend to enter into a demerger agreement providing for the issue of the Poolbeg Shares to Relevant Shareholders in return for the distribution in specie of the entire issued share capital of Orph Pharma to Poolbeg.

Further to the Company’s announcement of 13 April 2021, the board of Open Orphan has determined that if and when the Poolbeg Shares are admitted to trading on AIM (“Admission”) Relevant Shareholders who receive Poolbeg Shares will not be permitted to sell, transfer or deal in such Poolbeg Shares for a period of 9 calendar months (the “Lock-up Period”). Accordingly, Open Orphan and Poolbeg have appointed Croft Nominees Limited (“Croft”) to hold the legal title to the Poolbeg Shares from the date on which the distribution in specie is effected until the date which is 9 months from Admission.

Croft has agreed to hold on trust on behalf of Relevant Shareholders, the beneficial owners of the Poolbeg Shares, an omnibus share certificate representing all the Poolbeg Shares until the end of the Lock-up Period and to take certain limited actions with respect to the Poolbeg Shares. Following the expiry of the Lock-up Period Croft will deliver the share certificate to Poolbeg’s registrar and will execute stock transfer forms to transfer the Poolbeg Shares to Relevant Shareholders based on a schedule to be provided to Croft by Poolbeg, and upon the registration of such Relevant Shareholders (or their respective personal representative, nominee or successor in title) as legal holders of such shares, Croft will be released from its obligations in relation to such trust arrangements.

In the event of a general meeting of Poolbeg during the Lock-up Period, Poolbeg will arrange for its registrar to contact Relevant Shareholders to ascertain how (if at all) they wish to vote. Croft will then complete a proxy form reflecting the voting intentions as so communicated to Poolbeg’s registrar. However, following the issue of the Poolbeg Shares to Relevant Shareholders, and given the passing of the resolutions at the general meeting of the Company on 29 April 2021, the board of Open Orphan intends to instruct Croft to vote the Poolbeg Shares in favour of resolutions to re-register Poolbeg as a public limited company and adopt appropriate public company articles of association.

It is intended that Relevant Shareholders will receive a letter informing them of their beneficial holdings of Poolbeg Shares shortly after the issue of the Poolbeg Shares.

Following the Lock-up Period, Relevant Shareholders (or their respective personal representative, nominee or successor in title) will receive individual registrations in respect of their Poolbeg Shares.

The anticipated timetable for the proposed Open Orphan distribution in specie is:


Open Orphan ordinary shares marked as ex rights

8.00 a.m. on 16 June 2021

Record date for the distribution in specie

Close of business on 17 June 2021

Distribution in specie effected

18 June 2021

Registration of Poolbeg Shares in the name of Croft Nominees Limited

Upon issue on 18 June 2021


A copy of the undertaking in relation to Croft Nominees Limited acting as legal holder of the Poolbeg Shares will be made available in due course via the investor section of the Company’s website.

Notice of Results

The Board expects to release the Company’s audited results for the year ended 31 December 2020 on 17 June 2021. It also expects, at the same time, to update shareholders on the progress of the anticipated admission to trading on AIM of Poolbeg.
