Hallo Leute,

heute will ich mal den Goldpoduzenten Alamos Gold vorstellen. Diese Aktien wird bisher in Deutschland von niemanden erwähnt und es gibt keinerlei Analysen und deshalb habe ich mal eine kleine Zusammenstellung gemacht über diese fast unbekannte Aktie!



Share Capital
(as of January 31, 2007)

Issued and Outstanding 93,724,513 common shares


Fully Diluted 99,178,277 shares



http://www.alamosgold.com/Investors/StockPerformance/ShareCa…



Die Marktkapiatlieserung ist dann bei einem Kurs von 6,17 Euro circa 578,3 Mio Euro!



Die Firma hat nachgewiesene Goldreserven von 19,7 Mio. Unzen AU (Gold) und 697 Mio Ag (Silber). Quelle

http://www.alamosgold.com/Theme/AlamosGold/files/OCTOB-2006-…

Das bedeutet das die Unze unabgebauten Gold mit 29,35 Euro bewertet wird.

Die Bilanz im 3. Quartal zum 30. September 2006 hat einen Gewinn von 1 cent ausgewiesen und damit wurde zum erstenmal ein Gewinn gemacht! Laut Angaben der firma werden die Produktionkosten weiter leicht fallen und die Produktion im diesem Jahr von 110 000 Unzen auf 200 000 Unzen hochgefahren! Wie wir alle wissen steigt seit Wochen der Goldpreis und was das heißt kann sich jeder selber ausdencken bei dieser fast unbekannten Aktie.



Ich selber bin heute nach eingehender recherche eingestiegen und habe mir vorher noch nachfolgende Bilanz angeschaut!

Fazit: Für einen Produzenten ist diese Aktie meiner Meinung nach alles andere als zu teuer!

Operating costs for the year ended December 31, 2006 as compared to the
Feasibility Study are presented below:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Cost per tonne summary YTD 2006 Feasibility Study
----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Mining cost per tonne $1.12 $0.95
----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Waste-to-ore ratio 2.26 1.42
----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Mining cost per tonne of ore $3.66 $2.44
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Crushing cost per tonne of ore $1.84 $1.15
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Processing cost per tonne of ore $1.86 $1.98
----------------------------------------------------------------------
General & Administration cost per tonne of ore $1.10 $0.97
----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Total cost per tonne of ore $8.46 $6.54
----------------------------------------------------------------------


In the table above, actual cost per tonne of ore for processing and administration was consistent with Feasibility Study levels. Most cost areas were higher than Feasibility Study levels due to higher input costs for energy related consumables. Processing costs were lower due to lower than expected consumption of cyanide and lime. Crushing cost per tonne of ore is expected to decrease in 2007 as the volume of crushed tonnes increases. The overall waste-to-ore ratio of the Estrella deposit has not changed from the Feasibility Study but 2006 and 2007 have higher waste-to-ore ratios to support higher crushing rates.

Operations Summary

Ongoing reviews of operating procedures have led to certain changes which the Company is in the process of implementing. In order to achieve higher gold production in 2007, the Company is focused on increasing the throughput of ore through the crusher at the optimal discharge size of 80% passing 3/8". During 2006, the crusher configuration produced a product which was coarser than contemplated in the Feasibility Study, and the crushing operation was unable to consistently achieve its targeted rate of 15,000 crushed tonnes per day. To remedy this, the Company will install a 4th stage of crushing between the existing primary and secondary crushers. This is also expected to provide operations with additional capacity to increase throughput. This new configuration is anticipated to be operational in the second quarter of 2007.

In addition, the Company's continuous improvement efforts have identified certain procedural changes in ore handling and leach pad protocol, which are expected to benefit future gold production. Specifically, the Company is in the process of increasing leach pad lift heights, increasing cyanide concentrations in the leach solution and various other procedures designed to optimize recoveries. The Company is also introducing a mechanized stacking system in the first quarter of 2007.

With these operational enhancements, the Company expects to see improvements in crushed ore size and throughput, higher gold recoveries and a corresponding increase in gold production in 2007.

Na dann schau dir mal Cusac Gold an.

Ein Goldproduzent, dessen MK keine 15 Mio Euro beträgt.
(und auch noch keiner kennt)

Da hast du einen wesentlich größeren Hebel.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 27.976.483 von Albatossa am 26.02.07 11:55:26Hallo Albatossa

Es gibt so ca. 5000 bis 6000 Gold, Silber, Platin, Palladium, Kupfer, Zink, Nickel, Uran, und weiss was ich noch was für Explorer, oder Produzenten die irgenwo auf dieser Welt an irgend einer Börse gelistet sind.

Davon sind immer noch die wenigsten hier bei WO erwähnt, obwohl einige User wenn sie im jetzigen Tempo mit neun Threaderöffnungen weitermachen, vielleicht in 1-2 Jahren auch diese ca. 6000 Titel noch hinkriegen.

Dein Goldpoduzent Alamos Gold ist mit Sicherheit kein unbekannter Titel wie Du glauben magst, im Gegenteil die Alamos wird andern Ortes schon stark diskutiert, und wurde in den vergangenen 3 Jahren sehr wohl auch stark beachtet, wie Du am Chartverlauf leicht erkennen kannst. Dein "Geheimtipp" hat sich in den vergangenen 3 Jahren bereits mehr als ver18facht im Kurs.

Da ist nix mehr mit Geheimtip Albatossa!

http://www.tsx.com/HttpController?GetPage=DetailedQuotePage&…

Eine MK von 876 Mio. CAD ist bereits sehr happig, obwohl ich diesem Titel bei starken, oder weiter steigenden Goldpreisen noch einiges an Potenzial zuschreibe.




Hier einige wirkliche Geheimtips!!

Wenn Du schon von Geheim-Tips sprechen musst, versuche es doch einmal mit diesen Titeln, die ihre möglichen Kurs Anstiege erst noch vor sich haben, und in ersten Falle noch in diesem Jahr, eigenen Angaben zur Folge zzum Goldproduzenten werden wird. Der zweite Titel Produziert bereits, und die Ergebnisse werden immer besser. (Tatsache!)

Beide Titel werden auch in Deutschland gehandelt, oder besser gesagt fast nicht gehandelt. Am besten sind sie an der Heimat Börse Kanada handelbar!

Gruss

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 27.977.897 von SilberEagle am 26.02.07 12:54:32Hallo SilberEagle,

ich bin der Meinung das für diese Aktie durchaus noch Platz ist für einen Thread zumal es W : O selber war der mich darauf gebracht hat.


Ob es ein Fehler war diese Aktie zu erwähnen die Deiner Meinung nach überbewertet ist soll der Markt und die das Unternehmen selber beweisen!

Bisher war mir noch nicht bewußt das einen Unternehmen das im Dreck über 12 Milliarden Dollar stecken hat auch als solches beachtet werden sollte!

Werde diesen Thread schließen lassen und W : O auffordern das in Deutschland für solche Aktien kein Platz mehr ist und nur noch über staatlich verordnetet und von Bundesfinanzministerium zensierte Aktien diskutiert und gehandelt werden darf!



Hallo W : O,

bitte schließen sie alle Thread bei denen die Aktiengesellschaft nicht in Deutschland Steuern zahlen noch ihren Firmensitz in Deutschland haben.

Bitte auch diesen Thread schließen, weil unnötig es gibt bereits genügt AG und davon bekommen wir Aktionäre nur Kopfschmerzen wenn mehr als Aktiengesellschften auf den Kurszettel sind oder hier im Board darüber berichtet wird!

MfG

Albatossa




P.S.: Danke für den Tip aus #7, hoffentlich bekommen diese Unternehmen auch eine Lizens damit man diese auch in Zukunft handeln darf!:cry:

Was soll dieser Kindergarten?

Wenn Du den Lesern hier eine Aktie eines Goldproduzenten bei WO als Geheimtip verkaufen willst, die sich bereits im Hoch verzwanzigfachten konnte, solltest Du Dich vielleicht nicht wundern, wenn Dir jemand aufzeigt, dass es sich bei Deinem angeblichen "Geheimtip" eben nicht mehr um einen "Geheimtip" handelt, sondern um einen Goldproduzenten der bereits seit Jahren bekannt ist wie ein bunter Hund, und sich bereits kurslich weit entwickeln können.

Du warst es übrigens nicht der gemeint war mit zuviel (6000) Threads eröffnen, doch das spielt ja jetzt auch keine grosse Rolle mehr, nachdem Du diesen Thread schliessen lassen möchtest.

Vielleicht ist der Haupgrund dazu ja auch nur, dass Du an Deinen super "Geheimtip" nicht allzulange erinnert werden möchtest?

Aktienauswahl

Sieben heiße Wachstumsaktien

Von Michael Kaye



26. Februar 2007
Wachstumsanleger - also jene, die nach Unternehmen mit überdurchschnittlichem aktuellem und prognostizierten Gewinnwachstum Ausschau halten - könnten günstige Bedingungen für ihre bevorzugte Anlagestrategie vorfinden.

Aktien sind nach wie vor attraktiv bewertet , das Kurs-Gewinn-Verhältnis im S&P-1500 (der die Aktienwerte des S&P-500, des S&P-MidCap 400 und des S&P-SmallCap 600 umfasst) beträgt 18,2 und befindet sich damit unter seinem 52-Wochen-Hoch von 19,9, was auf weiteres Aufwärtspotential schließen lässt.


Welches sind nun die aussichtsreichsten Wachstumskandidaten? Wir machten uns auf die Suche nach Wachstumstiteln, die den Anlegern auch längerfristig Freude bereiten. Beim Wachstum der aufzuspürenden Aktien dachten wir in großen, wenn nicht sehr großen Dimensionen. Zunächst filterten wir unsere Datenbank nach Titeln mit einem prognostizierten Gewinnwachstum je Aktie von mehr als 50 Prozent in den kommenden fünf Jahren. Hierbei sei angemerkt, dass der prognostizierte Gewinn im S&P-1500 bei durchschnittlich 12,27 Prozent liegt.

Unser zweiter Filter sollte gewährleisten, dass wir für die Berechnungen des Gewinnwachstums eine hinreichend große Anzahl von Analystenschätzungen heranziehen, um das Vertrauen in die Projektionen zu stützen. Wir legten daher fest, dass für jede Aktie in der Liste mindestens fünf Schätzungen von Wall-Street-Analysten vorliegen mussten. Ein weiterer Vorteil: Aktien mit einer größeren Anzahl von Analystenprognosen weisen in der Regel höhere Kurs-Gewinn-Verhältnisse auf als solche, die von der Wall Street nur geringe Aufmerksamkeit erhalten.


Abschließend wollten wir sicherstellen, dass es sich bei den in dieser Woche ausgewählten Titeln um liquide und gängige Aktien handelt. Daher suchten wir nach Kandidaten mit einem Kurswert von über fünf Dollar pro Aktie und einer Marktkapitalisierung von mehr als 500 Millionen Dollar.

Nach Berücksichtigung aller genannten Kriterien erhielten wir eine Liste mit folgenden Namen: Alamos Gold, American Tower, Baidu.com, Leap Wireless, Move Inc., Sonosite und Suntech Power Holdings. Auffallend bei dieser Aktienauswahl ist der hohe Anteil ausländischer Unternehmen (Alamos, Baidu.com und Suntech).

Die in dem Beitrag geäußerte Einschätzung gibt die Meinung des Autors und nicht die der F.A.Z.-Redaktion wieder.

Habe niergends behauptet, dass der Titel schlecht sei, im Gegenteil. Ich habe nur aufgezeigt, dass es sich bei Alamo Gold entgegen der Überschrift ganz, und gar nicht mehr um einen Geheimtip handelt.

Dass der Albatossa so ein empfindliches Gemüt besitzt, und nach meinem Posting gleich von Zensur zu reden beginnt, und seinen Thread zudem noch schliessen lassen möchte, und den Usern empfiehlt nicht mehr in diesem Thread über seinen Geheimtip zu diskutieren, das konnte ich natürlich nicht ahnen.

Kaufen, wenn die Kanonen donnern?
Zahlreiche Explorations-Aktien vom Markt abgestraft

Den gesamten Tag zeigte sich der Markt unsicher. Aktien, die die letzten Tage stets über dem Schlusskurs ihrer Heimatbörse in Übersee gehandelt wurden, waren bereits am Vormittag mit fünf Prozent “Abgeld” zu haben. Was war geschehen? Der chinesische Index Shanghai Composite brach nach einem monatelangen Kursfeuerwerk um bis zu neun Prozent ein. Anleger interpretierten dies als mögliche Schwäche der chinesischen Volkswirtschaft und straften vor allem Rohstoff-Aktien ab. Dabei möchte China nur verstärkt gegen illegale Machenschaften rund um den chinesischen Aktienmarkt vorgehen. Nach Eröffnung der Börsen in Kanada und den USA verstärkte sich der Negativtrend noch einmal zusätzlich. Aktien wie Forsys Metals, Uranerz Energy, Sabina Silver oder Aquila Resources gaben teilweise bis zu zwanzig Prozent nach. Nach der ersten Panik kehrt nun wieder die Vernunft ein. Vor allem Uran-Aktien können wieder zulegen. Die Korrektur eines in der Vergangenheit sehr stark gestiegenen Index macht schließlich noch keine Wirtschaftskrise.

Alamos Gold bestätigt die 7% höheren Goldreserven in Sonoro



Alamos Gold Inc. Increases Reserves on Its 100% Owned Mulatos Deposit in Sonora, Mexico
Thursday March 29, 6:35 pm ET


TORONTO, ONTARIO--(MARKET WIRE)--Mar 29, 2007 -- Alamos Gold Inc. (Toronto:AGI.TO - News) ("Alamos" or the "Company") reports an increase in mineral reserves at its Mulatos deposit, in Sonora, Mexico. The updated mineral reserve estimate was calculated as at December 31, 2006 using a price of $500 per ounce of gold, and indicates proven and probable reserves of 2.1 million contained ounces. This reflects a 7% increase from the mineral reserves for the Estrella Pit reported in the Company's Feasibility Study dated June 17, 2004 of 1.92 million contained ounces. The updated mineral reserve estimate incorporates the Estrella, Mina Vieja, El Salto and Escondida areas.
The Company's exploration and development program has been successful in adding reserves to areas outside of the existing Estrella Pit. The Company anticipates growing its reserve base in 2007 and 2008 as the results of drilling at the Gap and El Victor areas are incorporated into its global mineral reserve.

commissioned in February 2006.
(2) Q1-2006 reported gold production has been adjusted to reflect final
settlement amounts. Q1-2007 and 2006 reported gold production is
subject to final settlement.
Gold production increased 21% in the first quarter of 2007 compared to the prior year period. During the first quarter of 2006, the Company was in a pre-commercial phase stacking un-crushed run-of-mine and colluvial material on the leach pad. Gold recoveries from un-crushed material are lower than recoveries of ore crushed to the optimal discharge size of 80% passing 3/8th of an inch.

The table below compares costs in the first quarter of 2007 to the first quarter of 2006 and the 2006 year:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Total cost per tonne of ore increased approximately 13% in the first quarter of 2007 compared to the same period in 2006. This increase in total cost per tonne of ore is attributable primarily to higher mining and processing costs.

Mining cost per tonne of ore and waste was $1.31 in the first quarter of 2007, consistent with the comparable period of 2006. Mining costs in the three-month period ended March 31, 2007 included significant costs related to scheduled maintenance on the Company's mobile equipment fleet. Mining cost per tonne of ore and waste is budgeted to steadily decrease throughout 2007 as the volume of ore and waste mined increases.

Mining cost per tonne of ore in the first quarter of 2007 was $4.25 or 15% higher than in the first quarter of 2006. This increase is due to higher budgeted maintenance costs in 2007 and a higher waste-to-ore ratio. The waste-to-ore ratio in the first quarter of 2007 was 2.24 or 19% higher than in the three-month period ended March 31, 2006.

Crushing cost per tonne of ore in the first quarter of 2007 of $2.23 is consistent with the prior period. In the first quarter of 2007, the Company crushed 1,050,000 tonnes of ore compared with 332,000 tonnes in the same period of 2006 as the crusher only became operational in February of 2006. The number of crushed tonnes remains below budgeted levels of 15,000 tonnes of crushed ore per day, or 1,350,000 tonnes of crushed ore per quarter. The Company was able to reduce the crusher discharge size in the first quarter of 2007 to approximately 7/16th of an inch, however, the focus on crushed ore size resulted in lower crusher throughput. Crusher performance is expected to improve with the implementation of an additional crusher between the existing primary and secondary crusher. This new crusher is expected to result in smaller diameter feed into the existing secondary and tertiary crushers, which should produce a more consistent final crushed ore product and provide additional capacity. The new crusher is expected to be operational in June 2007. Higher crusher throughput should result in lower crushing cost per tonne.

Processing cost per tonne of ore in the first quarter of 2007 increased 49% over prior period levels. Processing costs include expenditures incurred with respect to the leach pad, gold recovery plant and refining activities. The significant cost increase in the three-months ended March 31, 2007 compared with the same period of 2006 is primarily attributable to increased consumption of lime and cyanide. The increase in lime consumption is due to higher levels of sulphide ore stacked in the first quarter of 2007 as additional lime is required to balance the ph level of the leach pad. Cyanide consumption increased in the first quarter of 2007 as cyanide application rates were increased to improve leach pad performance. Subsequent testing revealed that elevated cyanide application rates contributed to quicker gold recovery, but did not increase the ultimate level of gold recovery over time. As a result, higher cyanide application rates were discontinued, and lower cyanide consumption is expected for the remainder of 2007. Another factor contributing to higher cyanide costs in the first quarter of 2007 is that the per unit cost of cyanide to the Company has increased approximately 24% since the comparable period of 2006. The increases in processing costs are expected to be partially offset by budgeted cost improvements through the mechanization of the ore-stacking and lime-application processes.

Administration cost per tonne of ore in the first quarter of 2007 was $1.11 compared with $1.22 in the same period of 2006. The decrease in administration cost per tonne of ore is due primarily to lower road maintenance costs at the Mine.

(1) Q1-2007 reported gold production is subject to final settlement.
(2) Cash operating costs is a non-GAAP measure which includes all direct
mining costs, refining and transportation costs and by-product credits.
Cash operating costs is equivalent to mining and processing costs as
reported in the Company's financial statements.
(3) Production royalties are included as of April 1, 2006 at 5% of net
precious metals revenues (as determined in accordance with the royalty
agreement).
(4) Total cash costs is a non-GAAP measure which includes all cash
operating costs and royalties and production taxes. Total cash costs
is equivalent to mining and processing costs and royalties as reported
in the Company's financial statements.
(5) Total production costs is a non-GAAP measure which includes all total
cash costs, amortization, and accretion of asset retirement
obligations. Total production costs is equivalent to mining and
processing costs, royalties, amortization and accretion of asset
retirement obligations as reported in the Company's financial
statements.
(6) Realized cash margin per ounce is a non-GAAP measure which is
calculated as the difference between the Company's gold sales and
mining and processing and royalty expenses as reported in the
Company's financial statements.
Cash operating cost per ounce of gold sold was $332 in the first quarter of 2007 compared to $308 in the first quarter of 2006 and $294 for the year ended December 31, 2006. Cash operating costs in the first quarter were adversely affected by higher mining and processing costs and a high waste-to-ore ratio for expansion ore availability.

Lower recoveries from coarsely crushed overliner and high-grade, low recovery material that was stacked on the leach pad in late 2006 and early 2007 also contributed to higher per ounce costs.

Gold recovery rates are sensitive to crush size with finer crushed material yielding higher recovery. The optimal crush size is 80% passing 3/8th of an inch. During the first quarter of 2007, the Company achieved an average size of crushed ore stacked on the leach pad of 80% passing 7/16th of an inch. This represented an improvement from the fourth quarter of 2006 when the average crusher discharge size approximated 80% passing one-half of an inch. The new crusher that is in the process of being installed is expected to assist the Mine in achieving the optimal crush size and increased throughput. Continuing to reduce crush size is expected to improve gold recoveries, which is expected to result in increased gold production and reduced cash operating costs per ounce.

During the first quarter of 2007, the Company conducted a comprehensive test of a section of the leach pad to evaluate leach pad performance to date. The test was conducted on an area of the leach pad consisting of fine crushed material that had been under leach for 115 days. This section of the leach pad was trenched to a depth of five meters, visually inspected to assess percolation, and samples were obtained for analysis. The samples derived from the leach pad were assayed and bottle roll tests were conducted to evaluate future probable gold extraction rates. The results of this testing were positive as the Company was able to conclude that there were no percolation, segregation or channeling issues in this area of the pad. Further, analysis of the crushed ore samples revealed that approximately 80% of the expected recoverable gold had been recovered within the first 115 days of leaching, and recovery of the additional 20% is probable over time. Additional testing of other sections of the leach pad is ongoing.

Investment in Mineral Property, Plant and Equipment

Cash invested in mineral property, plant and equipment for the three-month period ended March 31, 2007 is as follows:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cash invested in mineral property, plant and equipment 2,961
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Capital projects in the first quarter of 2007 were focused on the installation of the new crusher, leach pad expansion, an additional storm water pond, treatment pond and improvements to mine infrastructure.

The Company is in the process of installing an additional crusher between the existing primary and secondary crushers. This investment is expected to reduce crusher discharge size to the optimal level and increase crusher throughput capacity. The Company spent $0.4 million to acquire the crusher and transport it to the mine site. An additional $1.2 million is budgeted for electrical, engineering and related installation work, and will be incurred in the second quarter of 2007. The Company also invested in excess of $0.6 million in the first quarter on its planned overland conveyor stacking system, which will eliminate truck loading of the leach pad. It is anticipated that this project will reduce leach pad costs, and increase mobile equipment availability as these trucks can be used elsewhere within the Mine.

Leach pad expansion activities cost $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2007. An additional $0.2 million is budgeted to complete the leach pad expansion and is expected to be incurred in the second quarter of 2007.

The Company also invested in excess of $0.5 million on general mine site infrastructure projects during the first quarter of 2007. These expenditures were incurred to improve the Company's existing laboratory facilities, truck shop, warehouse, fuel station and process plant.

Exploration and Mine Development Activities

Exploration activities in 2007 are focused primarily on near-mine resource-definition projects at Gap and San Carlos and regional exploration at Bajios, Cerro Pelon and Puerto del Aire.

During the first quarter of 2007, the Company invested $658,000 in exploration activities, of which approximately $250,000 was incurred in relation to surface exploration drilling at Gap. The Gap area is currently the Company's highest priority exploration target as it has similar geologic characteristics to the high-grade Escondida Hanging Wall Zone.

A large, blind area of concealed silica alteration has been identified in the Gap area that hosts both high-grade and thick lower-grade gold intercepts. Silica alteration has been encountered in all but two drill holes to date, delineating an area approximately 500 meters long by 150 meters wide, and up to 110 meters thick. Mineralization at the Gap area is continuous with El Victor, with 1,100 meters of strike length identified to date to the trend of mineralized intercepts from El Victor through Gap. An additional 250 meters of strike length remains to be explored until the Escondida deposit is encountered.

Drilling to date consists of 17 inclined reverse-circulation holes on 50 meter centers (3,848 meters), stepping out to the west from previous El Victor/Gap intercepts. Drilling has resulted in the identification of several high-grade gold intercepts.

The El Victor resource estimate is on track for the second half of 2007. All drill holes have been processed and assays received. A total of 137 surface and underground holes representing 12,800 meters were drilled in total.

The exploration budget for 2007 of $5.8 million includes $0.5 million for resource expansion at El Victor and Puerto del Aire and $1.7 million for resource expansion activities at Gap. The remaining $3.6 million will primarily be invested in exploration drilling activities at Bajios, San Carlos, Cerro Pelon, El Realito and El Carricito.

Outlook

Gold production is expected to increase consistently throughout the 2007 year. Monthly gold production in the first quarter of 2007 increased from 7,000 ounces in January to over 10,000 ounces in March. Gold production for the month of April 2007 was in excess of 10,000 ounces. The Company believes that this level of production is sustainable for the remainder of the second quarter of 2007, but expects a substantial increase in gold production in the third and fourth quarters of 2007. Additional investments in capital equipment, specifically, the additional crusher is expected to ensure the Company meets and exceeds its targeted throughput rates of 15,000 crushed tonnes of ore per day at or below the optimal crusher discharge size.

The Company plans to release a resource estimate on the El Victor project in the second half of 2007.

The Company expects to receive the results of a milling trade-off study in the second quarter of 2007. Following review of this independent report, the Company intends to evaluate its options with respect to mill processing Escondida ore and high grade areas of the Estrella deposit.

Cautionary Non-GAAP Statements

The Company believes that investors use certain indicators to assess gold mining companies. They are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared with GAAP. "Cash flow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital" is a non-GAAP performance measure which could provide an indication of the Company's ability to generate cash flows from operations, and is calculated by adding back the change in non-cash working capital to "Cash provided by (used for) operating activities" as presented on the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows. "Mining cost per tonne of ore" is a non-GAAP performance measure which could provide an indication of the mining and processing efficiency and effectiveness at the Mine. It is determined by dividing the relevant mining and processing costs by the tonnes of ore processed in the period. "Cost per tonne of ore" is usually affected by operating efficiencies and waste-to-ore ratios in the period. "Cash operating cost per ounce" and "total cash cost per ounce" as used in this analysis are non-GAAP terms typically used by gold mining companies to assess the level of gross margin available to the Company by subtracting these costs from the unit price realized during the period. These non-GAAP terms are also used to assess the ability of a mining company to generate cash flow from operations. There may be some variation in the method of computation of "cash operating cost per ounce" as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, "cash operating cost per ounce" reflects the cash operating cost allocated from in-process and dore inventory associated with ounces of gold sold in the period. "Cash operating cost per ounce" may vary from one period to another due to operating efficiencies, waste-to-ore ratios, grade of ore processed and gold recovery rates in the period. "Total cash cost per ounce" includes "cash operating cost per ounce" plus applicable cash royalties.

Heute kamen die 2. Quartalzahlen samt Halbjahreszahlen heraus! Firmengewinn 3 cent pro Aktie im Vorjahr wurden noch Verluste geschrieben. Der Cashbestand steigt, Bilanzsumme steigt und der vorgeschriebe Firmenverlust geht stark zurück, aber das schlecht Börsenumfeld sieht es heute wie bei allen anderen Minen- und Exploreraktien einwenig anders! In zweieinhalb Jahren wenn es so weiter geht wird es die ersten Dividentausschüttung geben.

For the three-month period ended June 30, 2007 the Company earned $1.9 million compared to a loss of $0.3 million in the comparable period of 2006. Operating earnings improved as a result of an increase in gold sales, a higher realized gold price, partially offset by higher mining and processing and royalty costs. Exploration and corporate and administrative costs were lower partially offset by higher stock-based compensation charges.

Earnings for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2007 have increased from the comparable periods in 2006 primarily as a result of a reduction in interest, financing, accretion and foreign exchange costs associated with the Company's convertible debenture liability. In June 2006, approximately 97% of the Company's outstanding convertible debentures were converted into common shares, which resulted in a proportionate reduction in interest, accretion and foreign exchange costs.

Results of Operations

Gold production at the Mine in the second quarter of 2007 was 28,640 ounces of gold in dore and gold sales were 30,880 ounces. On a year-to-date basis, the Mine produced 53,950 ounces of gold and gold sales were 58,080 ounces. Reported Mine production is subject to final refinery settlement.

The table below outlines key quarterly production indicators during the second quarter of 2007 compared with the second quarter of 2006 and on a year-to-date basis to June 30, 2007 and 2006:

Gold production increased 21% in the second quarter of 2007 compared to the prior year period. Tonnes of ore crushed increased from the second quarter of 2006, but was below budgeted throughput rates of 15,000 tonnes of crushed ore per day.

The Company owns and operates the Mine located on approximately 1,200 hectares of land acquired from the Mulatos Ejido and certain possessors pursuant to a 2004 agreement. In response to the interests of the local community, the Company has been in discussions on a comprehensive relocation plan that is mutually beneficial to the Company and the community at large. During the quarter, members of the local community temporarily restricted access through the main gate of the Mine in an effort to pressure the Company to agree to unreasonable concessions in conjunction with the relocation. The action conducted by this group of individuals restricted the Company's ability to move personnel, goods and services to the Mine for a period of ten days. As a result, mining operations were temporarily suspended resulting in lower than forecast gold production and increased per unit costs for the quarter.

The Company currently has the support of the majority of the local community and is in the process of implementing its relocation plan with the support of local and state governments.

The temporary suspension of mining activities during the second quarter of 2007 combined with restrictions in the amount of ore that could be processed through the crusher resulted in the Company mining 29% less ore and 6% less material (ore and waste) than in the second quarter of 2006.

Mining cost per tonne of material was $1.52 in the second quarter of 2007, approximately 14% higher than the comparable period of 2006. On a year-to-date basis, mining costs were $1.41 in 2007 compared to $1.32 in 2006, an increase of approximately 7%. Costs associated with scheduled maintenance on the majority of the Company's mobile equipment fleet are significantly higher in 2007 than in 2006, as the Company is completing component re-builds. This process occurs every two to three years depending on equipment usage. In addition, the temporary suspension of mining activities negatively affected mining costs per tonne of material as the Company mined 6% less material in the second quarter of 2007 than in the same period of 2006. Mining cost per tonne of ore and waste is expected to decrease throughout the remainder of 2007 as the volume of ore and waste mined is budgeted to increase.

Mining cost per tonne of ore in the second quarter of 2007 was $5.40 or 48% higher than in the second quarter of 2006. This increase is due to higher budgeted maintenance costs in 2007, a higher waste-to-ore ratio and fewer tonnes mined. The waste-to-ore ratio in the second quarter of 2007 was 2.55 or 51% higher than in the three-month period ended June 30, 2006. The budgeted waste-to-ore ratio for the second quarter was 2.12. Crusher availability was lower than planned in the second quarter, resulting in less ore being mined and an increased waste-to-ore ratio. Bench reconciliations of actual ore mined compared with the reserve model for the quarter indicated that less ore was mined, but at a significantly higher grade resulting in a greater number of ounces being mined than predicted in the reserve model.

Crushing cost per tonne of ore in the second quarter of 2007 of $2.84 was 43% higher than in the same period of 2006. Per tonne crushing costs are higher than budgeted due to lower than planned crusher throughput. During the second quarter of 2007, the Company focused on achieving the optimal crusher discharge size of 80% passing 3/8th of an inch. While it achieved this objective, crusher throughput was lower than planned due to higher levels of unscheduled maintenance, a temporary shut-down and the Company's efforts to reduce crusher discharge size. The new crusher was commissioned in July and is expected to assist operations in achieving its budgeted throughput of 15,000 tonnes of crushed ore per day. Higher crusher throughput should result in lower crushing cost per tonne.

Processing cost per tonne of ore in the second quarter of 2007 of $2.34 increased 29% over prior period levels. Processing costs include expenditures incurred with respect to the leach pad, gold recovery plant and refining activities. The significant cost increase in the second quarter of 2007 compared with the same period of 2006 is primarily attributable to increased consumption of lime and cyanide. The increase in lime consumption is due to higher levels of sulphide ore stacked in 2007 as additional lime is required to balance the pH level of the leach pad. In addition, the per unit cost of cyanide to the Company has increased approximately 25% in 2007 compared to 2006. The Company expects the mechanization of the ore-stacking and lime-application processes to result in cost savings which should offset the increases noted above. The Company has engaged an international engineering firm to complete the design specifications for the overland conveying system. Construction of the overland conveyor is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2007.

Mine administration cost per tonne of ore in the second quarter of 2007 was $1.56 compared with $1.26 in the same period of 2006. The majority of the Company's Mine administration costs are fixed in nature. As a result, fewer tonnes of ore crushed results in higher per tonne administration costs. In addition, the Company expensed $225,000 of costs incurred in relation to the temporary suspension of mining activities in the second quarter.

(1) Q1-2007 and Q2-2007 reported gold production is subject to final refinery settlement.

(2) Cash operating costs is a non-GAAP measure which includes all direct mining costs, refining and transportation costs and by-product credits. Cash operating costs is equivalent to mining and processing costs as reported in the Company's financial statements.

(3) Production royalties are included as of April 1, 2006 at 5% of net precious metals revenues (as determined in accordance with the royalty agreement).

(4) Total cash costs is a non-GAAP measure which includes all cash operating costs and royalties and production taxes. Total cash costs is equivalent to mining and processing costs and royalties as reported in the Company's financial statements.

(5) Total production costs is a non-GAAP measure which includes all total cash costs, amortization, and accretion of asset retirement obligations. Total production costs is equivalent to mining and processing costs, royalties, amortization and accretion of asset retirement obligations as reported in the Company's financial statements.

(6) Realized cash margin per ounce is a non-GAAP measure which is calculated as the difference between the Company's gold sales and mining and processing and royalty expenses as reported in the Company's financial statements.

Cash operating cost per ounce of gold sold was $358 in the second quarter compared to $332 in the first quarter of 2007. Cash operating costs per ounce increased 8% in the second quarter as a result of a higher waste-to-ore ratio and costs associated with the ten-day suspension of mining activities. Cash operating costs in the second quarter of 2006 were $261 per ounce. Higher maintenance, crushing and processing costs in 2007 have resulted in year-to-date cash operating costs of $346 per ounce being approximately 22% higher than in the comparable period of 2006.

Gold recovery rates are sensitive to crush size with finer crushed material yielding higher gold recovery. The optimal crush size is 80% passing 3/8th of an inch. During the second quarter of 2007, the Company successfully achieved an average size of crushed ore stacked on the leach pad of 80% passing 3/8th of an inch. Monthly bottle-roll tests of this material in the second quarter indicated potential gold recoveries of 55% from ore stacked in April, 58% from ore stacked in May and 63% from ore stacked in June 2007. The reduction in crush size in the second quarter should result in improved gold recoveries, higher future gold production and reduced cash operating costs per ounce.

Gold production is dependent on the Company's ability to meet its targeted rates of crusher throughput. The new crusher has been commissioned and is expected to assist the Mine in maintaining the optimal crush size and increasing throughput to the budgeted level of 15,000 tonnes of crushed ore per day.

Mine site management was strengthened in July 2007 through the addition of two key members. Two highly-qualified expatriates have been hired to lead the Company's construction and maintenance departments, and are expected to contribute to improved operating efficiency.

Exploration and Mine Development Activities

Exploration activities in 2007 are focused primarily on near-mine resource-definition projects at El Victor, Gap, Puerto del Aire and San Carlos and regional exploration at La Yaqui, Los Bajios, Cerro Pelon and El Halcon.

During the second quarter of 2007, the Company invested approximately $604,000 in exploration activities, of which $341,000 was incurred in relation to surface exploration drilling at Gap. Other exploration costs during the second quarter related to the El Victor resource estimate, camp and exploration salary costs. On a year-to-date basis, the Company has invested $1,262,000 million in exploration activities, primarily focused on Gap.

Gap

The Gap area is currently the Company's highest priority exploration target as it has similar geologic characteristics to the high-grade Escondida Hanging Wall Zone. A large, blind area of concealed silica alteration has been identified that hosts both high-grade and thick lower-grade gold intercepts. Gold-bearing intercepts in surface drilling have delineated an area approximately 500 meters long by 150 meters wide, and up to 110 meters thick. Mineralization at the Gap area is continuous with El Victor, with 1,100 meters of strike length identified to date of mineralized intercepts from El Victor through Gap. An additional 250 meters of strike length remains to be explored until the Escondida deposit is encountered.

Surface drilling completed to date has consisted of 34 inclined reverse-circulation holes on roughly 50-meter centers (7,495 meters), stepping out to the west from previous El Victor/Gap intercepts. Drilling has resulted in the identification of several additional high-grade gold intercepts, including 4.58 meters of 24.73 g/t Au (07EV049) and 7.62 meters of 29.92 g/t Au (07EE029). These drill results are in addition to previously reported results including 33.5 meters of 4.09 g/t Au (06EV048) and 25.9 meters of 3.85 g/t Au (06EV047).

Drilling at Gap has been technically challenging. The majority of the drill holes encountered a perched aquifer and could only be drilled under wet conditions. As a result, there is a potential for down-hole contamination from high-grade at the top of the interval. Underground core drilling and development is planned to further assess the zone.

El Victor

The El Victor resource estimate is in progress and on track to be completed in the third quarter of 2007. All drill holes have been processed and assays received. A total of 137 surface and underground holes representing 12,800 meters were drilled in total.

Puerto del Aire

During the second quarter of 2007, the Company compiled data from drilling completed at the Puerto del Aire project, located directly northeast of the Estrella Pit. Potentially ore-grade intercepts extend a minimum of 200 meters beyond the current projected pit margin, suggesting the potential for a pit lay-back. Drilling results to-date include 19.82 meters of 5.10 g/t Au (06PA004), 39.66 meters of 1.36 g/t Au (06PA009), 27.44 meters of 2.30 g/t Au (06PA018), and 47.25 meters of 1.31 g/t Au (06PA019). Additional in-fill and step-out drilling and a resource estimate is planned for the fourth quarter of 2007.

New surface agreements

The 2007 exploration budget of $5.8 million includes $3.6 million for exploration drilling at regional targets including Los Bajios, San Carlos, Cerro Pelon, El Realito and El Carricito. In the second quarter of 2007, the Company was successful in securing new surface agreements on the El Halcon, La Yaqui and Cerro Pelon properties. The Company expects to begin Phase 1 and/or follow-up drilling at these targets in the third and fourth quarters of 2007.

Outlook

The Company had planned gold production of 30,000 ounces in the second quarter of 2007. Actual gold production was 28,640 ounces, only 5% lower though mining operations were curtailed for a ten-day period.

The Company made significant progress in the second quarter of 2007 by reducing the crush size to the optimal size of 80% passing 3/8th of an inch. However, crusher throughput was significantly below budget due to high levels of unscheduled maintenance. The new crusher has been commissioned and the Company anticipates that planned crusher throughput rates of 15,000 tonnes per day will be achievable in the third quarter of 2007 provided the new crusher operates as designed.

Gold production in the month of July 2007 was significantly below forecast. Rainfall at the Mine of over 500 millimeters in the month of July was a record compared to the 40-year average July rainfall of 203 millimeters. Lower crusher throughput in July resulted from difficulties processing wet ore. In addition, the high rainfall levels impaired the Company's ability to implement optimum solution management practices.

Based on the level of gold production the Company achieved in the first seven months of 2007, and the delays experienced in commissioning the new crusher, it is not likely that the Company will be able to attain its forecast gold production of 150,000 ounces in 2007. Gold production in the third and fourth quarters of 2007 is dependent on the Company's ability to continue to control crusher discharge size, to reach targeted crusher throughput rates and to achieve optimal gold recoveries.

The Company has received the preliminary results of a milling trade-off study that was completed in the second quarter of 2007 indicating potential gold recoveries of up to 95% from Escondida ore under various milling options. Further metallurgical testing on high-grade portions of the Estrella deposit is ongoing to determine whether high-grade Estrella ore could be processed through a milling circuit in order to achieve significantly higher gold recoveries compared to heap leaching. In July 2007, the Company engaged an international engineering consulting firm to conduct an independent feasibility study on the milling option.

Exploration activities in the last half of 2007 will focus on completing surface drilling at Gap and underground development to facilitate core drilling and sampling. Additional in-fill and step-out drilling is planned at the Puerto del Aire zone, located to the immediate northeast of the Estrella Pit, with the intention of expanding resources. Phase 1 and step-out drilling will be conducted at El Halcon, La Yaqui and Cerro Pelon.

The Company plans to release a resource estimate on the El Victor deposit in the third quarter of 2007, followed by a reserve estimate. A resource estimate for Puerto del Aire is planned for the fourth quarter of 2007.

Cautionary Non-GAAP Statements

The Company believes that investors use certain indicators to assess gold mining companies. They are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared with GAAP. "Cash flow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital" is a non-GAAP performance measure which could provide an indication of the Company's ability to generate cash flows from operations, and is calculated by adding back the change in non-cash working capital to "Cash provided by (used for) operating activities" as presented on the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows. "Mining cost per tonne of ore" is a non-GAAP performance measure which could provide an indication of the mining and processing efficiency and effectiveness at the Mine. It is determined by dividing the relevant mining and processing costs by the tonnes of ore processed in the period. "Cost per tonne of ore" is usually affected by operating efficiencies and waste-to-ore ratios in the period. "Cash operating cost per ounce" and "total cash cost per ounce" as used in this analysis are non-GAAP terms typically used by gold mining companies to assess the level of gross margin available to the Company by subtracting these costs from the unit price realized during the period. These non-GAAP terms are also used to assess the ability of a mining company to generate cash flow from operations. There may be some variation in the method of computation of "cash operating cost per ounce" as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, "cash operating cost per ounce" reflects the cash operating cost allocated from in-process and dore inventory associated with ounces of gold sold in the period. "Cash operating cost per ounce" may vary from one period to another due to operating efficiencies, waste-to-ore ratios, grade of ore processed and gold recovery rates in the period. "Total cash cost per ounce" includes "cash operating cost per ounce" plus applicable cash royalties.

Mexico Mike:
Alamos Gold Inc appears to be primed for a rebound

Investors that consider taking a position in a producing mining company should put thorough consideration into the strength of the management team. Advancing a project through the resource definition phase all the way to development is difficult enough. But when it comes to operating a mine and running a real business, where the bottom line defines success or failure, school is out. If the management at all levels is up to the challenge, then the rewards for investors can be impressive. Be advised however, since there is much weeping and wailing awaiting the company that tries to make the jump to production without a competent team on hand to surmount the many hurdles that are sure to appear along the way.

The first thing that should be understood when appraising the caliber of management is that running a mine means being in the problem solving business. Technical skills are a prerequisite, but the real issue comes down to how the people in charge deal with unforeseen problems as they arise. The ability to respond quickly and effectively is what separates the efficient producers from the perennial underperformers.

Efficiency has taken on an even greater importance under the current economic reality for most mines. The spot price for gold has staged an impressive run during the last 5 years, but unfortunately inflationary pressures have increased rapidly as well. Therefore most mines depend on the very highest degree of efficiency to be wrung out of their operations in order to have a shot at profitability. For a new mine commencing production, the pressure to advance up a steep learning curve through trial and error to win the highest production rates at the lowest costs is the litmus test for a management team.

Alamos Gold Inc has arrived at that reality with a harsh thud. The stock was the toast of the junior mining sector in 2004 and 2005, achieving robust gains as exploration success and shrewd mine development resulted in commencement of production at the wholly owned Mulatos Mine. The ambitious operation is one of the largest mines in Mexico, currently producing at more than 15,000 tonnes per day. It should surprise no one that some teething problems were inevitable at this huge project, but nonetheless the stock went right off the rails when the company encountered difficulties in achieving the operating parameters of the plant design, and missed its own production targets.

Institutional shareholders dumped the stock with reckless abandon throughout the first half of this year, a train wreck that shaved half the market capitalization off the stock. When disgruntled shareholders decide to throw the baby out with the bath water, it often represents a great opportunity for new investors to kick the tires and decide if the value in the story is worth establishing a position. Read on…

To their credit, management stepped up and acknowledged the difficulties at hand, and then set about resolving the various issues that were causing problems. This included insufficient capacity of the crushing circuit, which meant that the company could not run enough ore through the circuit, or process it long enough to reach the required discharge size. As a result, the ore on the leach pad did not allow for optimum recovery levels using the cyanide solution and less gold was produced per tonne of processed material. In addition, the company ran into metallurgical difficulties due to higher levels of copper in some of the ore, which also had the effect to lower recovery rates for the gold and increase the consumption rate of the cyanide solution, thereby increasing production costs. There were other problems that had to be resolved of lesser significance but each contributed to weaker operating performance and required attention.

It now appears that these critical issues have been addressed. If so, with the bad news out of the way, perhaps Alamos is now positioned to begin reporting improving numbers and the achievement of stable operations that will meet the production objectives. Lessons are learned, and the business carries on stronger and leaner. This is the classic turnaround scenario that could be very profitable for aggressive investors to seize.

It should be noted that the company controls a large and valuable deposit, amounting to more than 133 million tonnes with an average grade of nearly 1 gram of gold per tonne, or about 4 million ounces of gold resources. The mine is actually a series of deposits that are clustered in close proximity on the large property in Sonora State, part of the prolific Sierra Madres Mineral Belt that extends across much of Northern Mexico. There are a number of attractive exploration targets that remain to be tested which offer the potential for further increases to the world class deposit. Several drills continue to be employed by the company and ongoing exploration results are awaited.

Alamos has identified a much higher grade zone within the deposit that could be suitable for a separate underground mining operation, which may contribute to a significant increase in both the production and profitability of the current operations. A consulting team is currently engaged to prepare a study with recommendations on the potential economics, and investors can also look forward to an upgrade in the estimated resources as part of this process.

Despite the challenges that beset the company earlier in the year, Alamos was still able to report net positive earnings year to date, and this performance should continue as work is completed to improve the efficiency at the mine. The working capital position is strong and it appears that the funding is in place to continue with development work and meet the cash flow requirements of an operating mine. So the risk level for investors considering buying the stock now is within reason.

At some point in this cycle a wave of consolidation is going to happen, with some of the larger resource plays being acquired by senior producers in order to replace depleting reserves. The nearby Palmarejo-Trojan Project controlled by Palmarejo Resources is stark evidence of this, recently taken out in a billion dollar acquisition by Coeur d’Alene Mines Ltd. An argument could be made that the Mulatos deposit is a more attractive asset for any suitor that may be sniffing around for cheap gold ounces. It would appear that at the current market capitalization, considering the impressive resource base and extensive development at Mulatos, Alamos could be a sitting duck for a hostile takeover bid.

There is still the risk that perhaps the management team will fail to resolve the operating issues and the company may be a weak performer for the rest of the year. If so, the steep reduction in share price that already occurred this year would suggest to me that further downside is limited. But I believe that the company is going to stage a rapid recovery and that will result in a higher share price. The potential is also real for an acquisition bid to materialize, and that too would justify a much higher share price. On the balance then Alamos is a compelling story. This appealing mine operation represents a high quality asset and an attractive addition to the Mexico Mike Portfolio. It is a good thing when you can buy caviar and pay catfish prices. I buy $10,000 of the company.

cheers!

Alamos Gold Inc. Increases Quarterly Production by 43% in Q4 2007
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 8, 2008) - Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX:AGI) ("Alamos" or the "Company") announces that gold production for the fourth quarter 2007 was approximately 31,100 ounces. Gold production in the fourth quarter of 2007 increased 43% over the 21,674 ounces produced in the third quarter, a period in which gold production was adversely affected by record rainfall. The Company exceeded its fourth quarter production target of 30,000 ounces of gold by 1,100 ounces. Quarterly production benefited from improved crusher throughput, averaging 13,000 tonnes per day, up 41% from the third quarter 2007 average of 9,200 tonnes per day.

The Company also achieved increased gold sales in 2007 of 108,296 ounces, 17,076 ounces or 19% higher than the 91,220 ounces of gold sold in 2006. Unaudited revenue for 2007 was $74 million compared with $54.7 million for 2006, an increase of 35%. The Company benefited from both increased gold sales and higher gold prices in 2007 compared with 2006.

The following table sets out gold production in Q3 and Q4 2007 (fourth quarter production is subject to final refinery settlements):




------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q3 October November December Q4-------------------------------------------------------------------------Gold production (oz) 21,674 9,200 10,050 11,850 31,100-------------------------------------------------------------------------



Strong cash flows from operations combined with the recovery of outstanding tax receivables enabled the Company to repay the $7 million balance outstanding on its bank debt in the fourth quarter. The Company reports that it recovered approximately $6 million in Mexican value-added tax receivables in the fourth quarter.

The Company also announces that certain initiatives which are expected to improve gold recoveries are progressing. The Company is currently evaluating the effects of solution pH, solution flow rates and cement agglomeration on gold recoveries. Interim data from column tests at an independent facility indicated that gold recoveries improved when crushed ore was agglomerated with cement. The Company will assess all test results and recommendations when the final report is received. A second initiative involves placing ore on the leach pad using a leach pad stacking/conveying system, which is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2008.

2007 Year-end Results

Alamos will report its fourth quarter and year-end 2007 results on Tuesday, March 11th, 2008, after market close. The Company will host a conference call on Wednesday, March 12th, 2008 at 11:00 a.m. (EST).

ja- da alleine der Goldpreis im letzten Quartal um 100$/Unze zugelegt hat !
das macht bei 31.100 Unzen schon einen Unterschied von 3,11 Mill. $ beim Gewinn aus.

und sie hätten weitaus mehr fördern können wenn der Dauerregen nicht gewesen wäre.......:eek:

weiter positiv: die 7 Mill. Schulden bei der Bank werden zurückgezahlt, wobei nur 1 Mill. netto fliessen, der Rest ist durch die Steuererstattung gedeckt

der Umsatzt wird für 2007 mit ungefähr 74 Mill. angepeilt : +35% ggü.2006

in diesen Zeiten sind eher Produzenten gefragt, da der Cashflow absichert,
denke da kein GAP gerissen wurde, das es heute über die 7 Can$ geht

Credit Suisse: Schwacher Dollar, Goldprognosen deutlich nach oben korrigiert
Leser des Artikels: 885

(www.Rohstoff-Welt.de / www.GoldSeiten.de) - Die zweitgrößte Schweizer Bank, die Credit Suisse Group, hat ihre Prognosen für Gold erhöht, das berichtet Bloomberg. Aufgrund der erneuten Zinssatzsenkungen, werden die Prognosen bis 2012 nach oben korrigiert, da man von einem weiterhin schwächer werdenden Dollar ausgehen muss. Demzufolge soll Gold in diesem Jahr durchschnittlich 950 $/oz kosten, in früheren Prognosen wurde noch von 700 $/oz gesprochen. Im nächsten Jahr soll das Metall durchschnittlich 1035 $/oz kosten, andere Prognosen gingen anfänglich von 750 $/oz aus.

Der Jahresbericht für 2007 liegt vor und alle sind sehr enttäuscht von den Zahlen! Es gibt wohl nicht viele Goldminen die derart ihre Kostenstruktur so verschleien das die Einnahmen aus den Goldverkäufe fast spurlos verschwinden!:cry:

Fazit: Hier bereichern sich alle vom Managment bis zum Zulieferer und für die Aktionäre bleibt nichts mehr übrig!


Fazit: Strong sell bis 5,00 canadische Dollar = 3,25 Euro!!!!!

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.833.382 von grasgruener am 08.04.08 10:01:55Festzustellen bleibt das man aus den Goldverkäufen von 34,609 oz einen Durchschnittspreis von 896 Dollar erzielen konnte.

Wir wissen das die laufenden Kosten ohne Lizensen bei $ 450 pro Unze liegen, aber nachdem wir alle erleben durften beim letzten Ergebnis aus dem 4. Quartal 2007, dass dann doch ein negatives Ergebis herausgekommen ist, wage ich diesmal keine Prognose zum Gewinn/Verlust.


Womöglich wurden der negaitve Ergebnistrend fortgesetzt!:rolleyes:

Was soll man nur zu Alamos sagen!:rolleyes:


Das Positive zuerst. Die Goldproduktion konnte auf monatlich 12000 Unzen gesteigert werden. Rückzahlung aller ausstehenden Wandelschuldverschreibungen zum 28. April 2008 durch Umwandlung auf 258677 Stückaktien und Rückzahlung von 0,1 Millionen CDN$. Alamos hat dadurch keine keine ausstehenden Wandelschuldverschreibungen.


Was nicht so gut ist: Alamos wird wohl gezwungen einem zur Rückzahlung $ 5,5 Millionen oder rund 70% ihres Capital Lease Verpflichtungen. Und der Zauberformel "conveying and stacking system" ( Förder-und Stacking-System) werden neue Lagerhallen, ein Autoshop und ein neues Labor als weitere Investionskosten versteckt. Wenn man man das so alles sieht dann wird hier vohl der gesamte CashFlow wiedereinmal unter scheinfadigen Gründen verbrannt.

Fazit: Irgendwas stimmt es hier beim Management nicht, man kommt fast auf die Idee das hier Buddy-Buddy-Geschäfte getätigt werden damit ja keine Gewinne ausgewiesen werden müssen und die Aktionäre niemals eine Dividende erhalten sollen.

(1) A non-GAAP measure calculated as cash provided by operating activities
as presented on the consolidated statements of cash flows and adding
back changes in non-cash working capital.
The Company reported record quarterly financial results in the first quarter of 2008. A high realized gold price combined with record gold sales contributed to the Company generating $11.4 million in cash from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital, and $14.8 million ($0.16 per share) after changes in non-cash working capital. The $14.8 million cash provided by operating activities represents a 333% increase over the $3.4 million ($0.04 per share) generated in the first quarter of 2007. Changes in non-cash working capital resulted in a use of cash of $1.5 million in the first three months of 2007 as the Company was investing in its gold inventory and Mexican value added tax receivable balances.

The Company recognized earnings before income taxes of $9.2 million in the first quarter of 2008 compared to $2.0 million in the same period of 2007, an increase of 352%.

The Company recorded earnings of $5.7 million or $0.06 per share. These results were due primarily to a 44% increase in the realized gold price per ounce and a 27% increase in the number of gold ounces sold in the first quarter of 2008 compared to the same period of 2007.

Results of Operations

In the first quarter of 2008, the Company reported record gold sales and gold production. Operational improvements implemented in 2007 have significantly benefited mining operations and contributed to higher gold production and reduced operating costs. These factors combined with appreciably higher gold prices, have resulted in the Company's strong financial performance in the first quarter of 2008.

Gold production in the first quarter of 2008 was 33,253 ounces or 33% higher than gold production of 24,940 in the first quarter of 2007. Gold sales in the first quarter of 2008 increased 27% over the comparable period of 2007 to 34,609 ounces. The table below outlines key quarterly production indicators during the first quarters of 2008 and 2007:

(1) Reported gold production for Q1 2007 has been adjusted to reflect final
refinery settlement. Reported gold production for Q1 2008 is subject
to final refinery settlement and may be adjusted.
The Company achieved significant increases in ore mined and crushed during the first quarter of 2008 compared to the same period of 2007. Throughout 2007, the Company used excess haul truck capacity caused by lower than planned crusher throughput to reorganize the open pit and move additional waste. As a result, mining operations were more efficient in the first quarter of 2008, contributing to a 19% increase in ore mined and a 29% decrease in waste mined, in line with the Company's budget. Also in 2007, the Company commissioned a new crusher which has improved the Company's ability to meet its targeted crusher throughput rates. Average daily crusher throughput of 13,670 in the first quarter of 2008 represented a 19% improvement over the comparable period of 2007. The grade of ore crushed and stacked in the first quarter of 2008 was 35% higher than in the prior year period and above the Company's budgeted grade.

The operational changes made in 2007 have demonstrated measurable improvements in both operating and production statistics, which in turn have contributed to cost efficiencies and lower costs per tonne. The following table compares costs per tonne in the first quarter of 2008 to the first quarter of 2007 and the 2007 year:



Costs per tonne summary Q1 Q1
2008 2007 Change 2007

is equivalent to mining and processing costs and royalties as reported
in the Company's financial statements.
(5) "Total production costs" is a non-GAAP measure which includes all
"total cash costs", amortization, and accretion of asset retirement
obligations. "Total production costs" is equivalent to mining and
processing costs, royalties, amortization and accretion of asset
retirement obligations as reported in the Company's financial
statements.
(6) "Operating cash margin per ounce" is a non-GAAP measure which is
calculated as the difference between the Company's gold sales and
mining and processing and royalty expenses as reported in the Company's
financial statements.
Outlook

In the first quarter of 2008, the Company demonstrated its ability to increase gold production and substantially reduce its cash operating costs compared with the previous quarter. Gold production increased 6% and cash operating costs decreased 22% in the first quarter of 2008 compared to the fourth quarter of 2007.

Improvements that were initiated last year, starting with the expanded crushing circuit, are nearing completion with the commissioning of the conveying and stacking system and expanded and redesigned leach pad. Next, the Company is focused on the completion of the cement agglomeration circuit in the second quarter of 2008, and in the latter half of the year, additional carbon columns will be added in the plant to increase solution processing capacity.

Other capital projects including the warehouse, truck shop, laboratory and camp improvements are substantially complete. The benefits of these projects should start to be realized in the second quarter as the Company's mining operations become more efficient resulting in corresponding reductions in costs.

The Company is forecasting gold sales and gold production of 35,000 ounces in the second quarter of 2008 at a cash operating cost (exclusive of royalties which increase with gold prices), at or below $385 per ounce.

The results of the evaluation of the economics of mining the Escondida project are expected to be received later in 2008, with a production decision expected shortly thereafter. It is expected that the Escondida project would be financed in part through existing cash balances and cash flows from current mining operations. The Company is currently evaluating other financing options, including bank debt financing.

Drilling at La Yaqui is expected to continue in the second quarter, in addition to new Phase 1 drilling at Cerro Pelon.

Alamos' Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders will be held at 4:30PM on Thursday, May 15th, 2008 at the Toronto Stock Exchange - Gallery at the Exchange Tower, 130 King Street West, Toronto, Ontario.

About Alamos

Alamos is a Canadian-based gold producer with operations, exploration and development activities in Mexico. The Company employs approximately 400 people in Mexico and is committed to the highest standards of environmental management, social responsibility, and health and safety for its employees and neighbouring communities. Alamos is fully leveraged to increases in gold prices. Alamos' common shares are traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "AGI".

Cautionary Non-GAAP Statements

The Company believes that investors use certain indicators to assess gold mining companies. They are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared with GAAP. "Cash flow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital" is a non-GAAP performance measure which could provide an indication of the Company's ability to generate cash flows from operations, and is calculated by adding back the change in non-cash working capital to "Cash provided by (used for) operating activities" as presented on the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows. "Mining cost per tonne of ore" is a non-GAAP performance measure which could provide an indication of the mining and processing efficiency and effectiveness at the Mine. It is determined by dividing the relevant mining and processing costs by the tonnes of ore processed in the period. "Cost per tonne of ore" is usually affected by operating efficiencies and waste-to-ore ratios in the period. "Cash operating cost per ounce" and "total cash cost per ounce" as used in this analysis are non-GAAP terms typically used by gold mining companies to assess the level of gross margin available to the Company by subtracting these costs from the unit price realized during the period. These non-GAAP terms are also used to assess the ability of a mining company to generate cash flow from operations. There may be some variation in the method of computation of "cash operating cost per ounce" as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, "cash operating cost per ounce" reflects the cash operating cost allocated from in-process and dore inventory associated with ounces of gold sold in the period. "Cash operating cost per ounce" may vary from one period to another due to operating efficiencies, waste-to-ore ratios, grade of ore processed and gold recovery rates in the period. "Total cash cost per ounce" includes "cash operating cost per ounce" plus applicable royalties.

Cautionary Non-GAAP Statements

The Company believes that investors use certain indicators to assess gold mining companies. They are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared with GAAP. "Cash operating cost per ounce" is a non-GAAP term typically used by gold mining companies to assess the level of gross margin available to the Company by subtracting these costs from the unit price realized during the period. This non-GAAP term is also used to assess the ability of a mining company to generate cash flow from operations. There may be some variation in the method of computation of "cash operating cost per ounce" as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, "cash operating cost per ounce" reflects the cash operating costs allocated from in-process and dore inventory associated with ounces of gold sold in the period. "Cash operating cost per ounce" may vary from one period to another due to operating efficiencies, waste-to-ore ratios, grade of ore processed and gold recovery rates in the period.

Cautionary Note

No stock exchange, securities commission or other regulatory authority has approved or disapproved the information contained herein. This news release includes certain "forward-looking statements". All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this release, including without limitation statements regarding gold production, gold sales, cash operating cost per ounce, and future plans and objectives of Alamos, are forward-looking statements that involve various risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to anticipated production and sales statistics (including "Gold production (ounces)", "Gold sales (ounces)", "Revenues" and "Realized gold price per ounce") which may be subject to audit or final revision, estimates of costs of production and operating margins (including "Cash operating cost per ounce"), mining and processing of ore, projected recovery rates, anticipated future production rates and mine life, operating efficiencies, costs and expenditures, changes in mineral resources and conversion of mineral resources to proven and probable reserves, and other information that is based on forecasts of future operational or financial results, estimates of amounts not yet determinable and assumptions of management. These statements may be subject to change, and any changes could be material.

Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", "plans", "estimates" or "intends", or stating that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved) are not statements of historical fact and may be "forward-looking statements." Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual events or results to differ from those reflected in the forward-looking statements.

There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from Alamos' expectations include, among others, risks related to international operations, the actual results of current exploration activities, conclusions of economic evaluations and changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined as well as future prices of gold and silver, as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in Alamos' Annual Information Form. Although Alamos has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

(TSX:AGI) reports record gold sales of 41,290 ounces at an average realized gold price of $901 per ounce resulting in quarterly revenue of $37.2 million, a 138% increase over revenues of $15.6 million in the same period of 2007.

Total cash cost per ounce (including a 5% royalty, which varies based on the gold price) for the third quarter of 2008 is expected to be well below the Company's previous guidance of $430 per ounce.

The Company achieved record gold production of 39,900 ounces in the third quarter of 2008, representing an 84% increase over production in the comparable period of 2007, and a 25% increase over the Company's quarterly production guidance of 32,000 ounces.

The following table (unaudited) presents the Company's gold production and sales in the third quarter and year-to-date in 2008, compared to the same periods of 2007. All dollar amounts are expressed in United States currency.

John McCluskey, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, "Previous rainy seasons have been challenging for operations at Mulatos. Changes made at the mine over the past year have led to higher productivity and a more efficient mining operation. The increase in production this quarter demonstrates that we have overcome the past problems. As of September 30, 2008, we have exceeded the total production in fiscal 2007 by 5,000 ounces".

The Company has excellent liquidity, with over $30 million in cash and short-term bank deposits (up from $18.4 million at June 30, 2008) and strong free cash flows at current gold prices.
