ECR Minerals #ECR CEO Interview – Alan Green talks to Craig Brown

Brand Comms CEO Alan Green talks to ECR Minerals #ECR CEO Craig Brown about the company’s flagship gold exploration projects in the heart of Australia’s Victoria Goldfields.

Craig talks about the recent placing to raise a further £2m with Novum Securities at 2.2p, and elaborates on the rationale behind it, before discussing the initial drilling results at the Bailieston Historic Reserve 3 prospect, that led to a fall in the share price despite identifying gold and gold mineralisation.

We look at slides from the current company presentation, and examine the scale of the operations and historic gold grades from the other Bailieston prospects including Blue Moon, Black Cat, HR4 (Cherry Tree, Cherry Tree South) and Yellow & Red Moon.

We move to Creswick and discuss the Dimocks Main Shale geological feature, the historical (2019) grades, license applications and JV implications and the upcoming drilling campaign. Craig then updates on the Tambo Project, and the connection with ECR’s Head Geologist Dr Rodney Boucher before we discuss the Bendigo HQ operation.

Alan and Craig then summarise by looking at the current company valuation vs. assets and work underway.

Andalas Energy & Power #ADL announces a North Sea license acquisition and placing

Andalas Energy and Power Plc, the AIM listed upstream oil and gas and energy company (AIM: ADL), is pleased to announce it has acquired an interest in Licence P2112, a Southern North Sea Licence, which contains Badger, a large undrilled gas prospect through the acquisition of a 14.75% equity interest in Eagle Gas Limited, a private UK oil and gas company.


  • Eagle, through its wholly owned subsidiary, has a 66.67% interest in Licence P2112.
  • Andalas’ investment will provide capital for Eagle’s share of the 2018 work programme, contracted to PGS.
    • The existing 3D seismic data and interpretation by the previous Operator indicates that Badger has significant gas potential.
    • The work programme will further define the size of the Badger prospect and fully meets the licence commitment.
    • Eagle is targeting completion of the work programme in Summer 2018.
  • The Licence straddles existing pipeline infrastructure.
  • Creates the potential for further investments opportunities in the UKCS.
  • Consideration payable to Eagle is £125,000 in cash and 147,058,824 fully paid Andalas shares equating to £25,000 at the placing price.
  • £600,000 (gross) raised via the issue of 3,529,411,765 new ordinary shares of no par value, at a price of 0.017 pence per share – funding the acquisition and for general working capital.

Simon Gorringe, CEO of Andalas Energy and Power PLC said: “This investment is the first step in delivering my broader strategy to combine nearer term catalysts for shareholders, with our existing Indonesian projects.  Indonesia offers significant potential and we remain committed to our existing projects and strategy there. However to generate sustained value for shareholders we believe we must diversify into other projects or jurisdictions where suitable opportunities arise.  Our team has over 25 years’ experience in the UK North Sea, working across 15 fields encompassing every stage of the development cycle, which makes the Eagle opportunity particularly complementary to the teams skill set.

The investment gives us a material stake in an asset at an attractive entry point, with an existing work programme underway, providing significant upside potential. It also gives us access to other possible UK oil and gas projects that are being worked on by the team at Eagle.  We believe our expertise will help Eagle progress Badger and assist in negotiations on other business development opportunities.

Under our new low-cost operating model I have continued to stream line costs.  In particular in my first six months as CEO, I have already reduced our 6 month cash spend by 25% and continue to make reductions.  The benefit of these cost savings mean that the funds from this placing will provide us with sufficient working capital to deliver the results of Eagle’s work programme and make progress on our other initiatives.  We look forward to providing further updates on this and other projects in due course.”
