Minotaur shares bolt on copper find

SYDNEY, Nov 14 (Reuters) - Shares in explorer Minotaur Resources Ltd bolted more than ten-fold on heavy volume on Wednesday after it released promising exploration data pointing to a rich copper and gold deposit in the Australian outback.

Minotaur shares closed at A$1.65, up A$1.48 from its opening price of 17 cents on volume of nearly three million shares. The shares touched a high of A$1.75.

Prior to Wednesday`s run-up, Minotaur, which listed on the Australian bourse in December 2000, had traded as high as 18 cents.

Minotaur senior geologist said Tony Belperio told Reuters drilling data released to the Australian Stock Exchange suggested the southern margin of its Mt Woods Inlier joint venture was one of the most prospective grounds in Australia.

He said it could host copper and and gold mineralisation of the order of the nearby rich Olympic Dam lode mined by WMC Ltd WMC.AX.

"We`ve spent about a half million dollars so far and now will proceed with a lot more work," Belperio said.

David Massey, a dealer with Perth-based broker CIBC Eyres Reed, said the drilling result was very good.

"They have had a huge run on the back of that," he said. "It is near enough to Olympic Dam to make it interesting."

Minotaur, along its 6.91 percent shareholder BHP Billiton Ltd/Plc (ASX: BHP)BLT.L has the rights to earn a 70 percent interest in the prospect by spending A$4 million on exploration.

Normandy Mining Ltd (ASX: NDY) currently holds 80 percent, Sons of Gwalia Ltd (ASX: SGW) 13 percent and Sabatica Pty Ltd, seven percent.

Under the terms of the exploration agreement Minotaur will end up with 19 percent, BHP Billiton, 51 percent and Normandy, along with its junior partners, 30 percent.

The project covers 3800 square kilometres.

Mini boom as junior strikes Craton gold

By Barry FitzGerald

AN IMPRESSIVE exploration hit by Adelaide tiddler Minotaur and its big brother in the hunt, BHP Billiton, triggered a mini boom yesterday in junior explorers looking for the next big deposit in South Australia`s Gawler Craton.

Minotaur led the charge, soaring $1.48 - or 870 per cent - to $1.65 after reporting that drilling at the Prominent Hill prospect at its Mount Woods joint venture had returned Olympic Dam-style mineralisation over broad intersections.

It is a tightly held stock (18 million shares on issue), prompting punters to gain regional exposure by snapping up shares in other juniors active in the Gawler Craton.

Grenfell, Gunson and Adelaide Resources all more than doubled in price and were followed by strong double-digit percentage gains in at least six other junior explorers.

BHP Billiton was no slouch, gaining 56¢ or 6 per cent to $9.82. But that gain was almost exclusively related to Tuesday night`s bounce in copper prices in response to more industry production cutbacks.

The boom-time share price gains for the juniors comes as the exploration industry tries to shake the gloom brought on by exploration cutbacks by the bigger mining companies in response to declining commodity prices.

The best intersection in Minotaur`s discovery hole was 107 metres from 200m depth, which assayed 1.94 per cent copper and 0.66 grams of gold a tonne, including a sweet 35m from 272m assaying 3.86 per cent copper and 0.63gpt of gold.

Mount Woods sits between Olympic Dam, the monster copper-gold-uranium discovery made by WMC in 1976 beneath 400m of barren rock and sand, and the opal mining town of Coober Pedy.

The hunt has been on to find another Olympic Dam (it will produce 200,000 tonnes annually for the next 100 years, along with uranium, gold and silver) since its discovery but there has been no joy to date.

Yesterday`s flood of money into Minotaur and other juniors active in the hunt is taking a punt that at long last, another major ore body in the remote region might have been uncovered.

Minotaur chairman Robert Annells cautioned yesterday that it was hard to make any predictions on the strength of one hole. "But it is certainly a hole with the right sort of juice in it," he said.

The Gawler Craton has been a heart-breaker in the past. In 1996, Helix triggered another mini-boom for explorers in the sand-covered region when early exploration pointed to a new world-class gold province.

Follow-up work proved disappointing and Helix`s run to $4.50 a share proved short lived.

A surprise to many seasoned campaigners in the market was that there was no leak about the discovery hole. Mr Annells said the assays had been received only the night before and the fact that there had been no leak was a credit to all involved.

Minotaur is operator of the Mount Woods joint venture and is earning a 19 per cent interest under a $4 million farm in-deal with the original owners - Normandy, Sons of Gwalia and Sabatica.

BHP Billiton is earning 51 per cent in the property under its exploration alliance deal with Minotaur. Under that deal, BHP Billiton took a 6.9 per cent stake in Minotaur, making it the biggest shareholder in the group.

Minotaur Sets Off Pre-Christmas Excitement In Australia

There has not been this much excitement on the Australian mining scene for many a long day. A little explorer from Adelaide announced some drilling results and its shares shot from A$0.26 to A$1.69 on a flurry of dealing from all over the country. That is very close to a 650 per cent advance and brings back memories to old timers of the glory days of the Poseidon- led nickel boom when punters could double their money overnight on companies without a sniff of a nickel prospect in their portfolios. All that was needed was for them to have land within a reasonable distance of a nickel discovery, or a director with good contacts in the Press.

This is no reflection on Minotaur Resources which drilled a hole at the Prominent Hill prospect which is around 100 kms from WMC`s massive Olympic Dam copper-gold-uranium mine. This hole was drilled to test a discrete gravity anomaly measuring about 1500 x 500 metres and it passed through 108 metres of younger sediments before intersecting a massive haematite-supported breccia. The hole reached 450 metres in this breccia at which point drilling was terminated pending mineralogical assessment and analytical data.

It intersected mineralisation in three zones and the grades immediately sparked off talk of another Olympic Dam -type discovery. Between 107.8 metres and 128 metres the grades were 0.03 % copper and 2.3 g/t gold - not very exciting. Between 200 and 307 metres, however, the grades were 1.94% Cu and 0.66 g/t gold and included 35 metres grading 3.86% Cu and 0.63 g/t gold. The last 21 metres of the hole graded 0.9% Cu and 0.46 g/t gold. And the question that has to be asked is whether that would have attracted so much attention if it had not been fairly near Olympic Dam. For Brits it is hard to associate the words 100 kms with "fairly near."

Minotaur has a strategic alliance with BHP Billiton through Billiton Exploration Australia which is also its largest shareholder with a 7 per cent stake. Through this alliance, Minotaur is responsible for the generation of prospects holding potential for large-scale copper and/or zinc-lead mineralisation, and in turn, BHP Billiton has first rights to joint venture into these projects. Exploration focus under this arrangement is primarily on world class Olympic Dam Style copper-gold and Broken Hill Style zinc-lead-silver targets.

Minotaur and BHP Billiton currently have four joint ventures involving ten exploration licences, Minotaur being operator of all of these. The arrangement with BHP Billiton continues to at least the end of 2004 during which time BHP Billiton is required to second a senior geologist to the company. The Mt Woods Inlier, in which the Prominent Hill prospect is situated, belonged to Normandy, but was farmed out to the BHP Billiton/Minotaur alliance. Minotaur is earning 19 per cent as operator and BHP Billiton 51 per cent. The balance is held by Normandy, Sabatica and Sons of Gwalia, but the impact on their shares was very limited. The other shares that did move were Grenfell Resources, Adelaide Resources and Gunson Resources on the old nickel argument that if they are near they are worthy a punt.

It is interesting to note that Minotaur has a portfolio of its own which has nothing to do with BHP Billiton. It includes an extensive exploration portfolio in areas considered prospective for nickel, copper and gold in the Musgrave Block where WMC attracted a lot of attention with some drilling results last year, as well as in the Gawler Craton,. The Gawler Craton is where a number of Australian investors made enough money to pay for a good Christmas in 1996 when Helix Resources hit something and its shares shot up from A$0.45 cents to A$ 4.15 in a matter of days. One or two companies have listed in Oz on the back of property in Musgrave, though the follow-through from WMC has been pretty muted. Clearly no one can teach Minotaur much about the art of being close to a bit of excitement and now it is the focus itself. Well, Christmas is not too far away and excitement is what the punters want.

Minotaur Resources Surge on `Olympic Dam Style` Gold Discovery
By Emily Parkinson

Adelaide, Australia, Nov.14 (Bloomberg) -- Minotaur Resources Ltd. shares rose more than ten-fold after the mining company said drilling at Prominent Hill in South Australia state had found evidence of copper and gold.

The results of the drilling supported the company`s beliefs the Mount Woods joint venture contained mineral deposits with prospects similar to WMC Ltd.`s nearby Olympic Dam Mine, the company said in a statement released to the Australian Stock Exchange.

``It is a very significant drill hole,`` said Terry Burns, resource analyst at Paterson Ord Minnett in Perth. ``On face value it looks to be analogous with Olympic Dam.``

Olympic Dam contains the world`s 10th-largest gold reserve, the world`s largest uranium resource and one of the largest known silver deposits. Olympic Dam may be worth as much as $1.9 billion, analysts said.

Mining companies with exploration licenses near to the Prominent Hill site also rose on optimism they may share some of the deposits, Burns said. Shares in Grenfell Resources Ltd., Adelaide Resources Ltd. and Gunson Resources Ltd. all more than doubled.

``We haven`t seen (a find) this wild since the Gawler of Craton back in 1997,`` said Burns. ``They had a similar first-time strike looking for gold.``

Shares in Helix Resources Ltd. soared 13-fold to a high of A$4.99 in February 1997 from 37 cents in November 1996 as investors bet on the company`s Gawlor Craton gold prospect. The shares sank to a record low of 19 cents in Sept. 1998 and closed today at 36 cents.

Minotaur owns 19 percent and operates the venture while BHP Billiton own 51 percent. The company`s market value rose to A$29.9 million from A$3 million the start of trading this morning.

Minotaur shares surged as much as A$1.58 to A$1.75 before closing at A$1.65. The stock has been trading between 9 cents and 17 cents for the past year.
Gibt mir doch zu denken das die Aktie Minotaur hier bisher kaum ein Thema war, es also keinen echt guten Informanten
für die heißesten Gold Aktien gibt!
Betone heißeste, denn es muß ja wohl der Traum eines Goldminen Spekulanten sein, so einen Wert der übers Jahr

es gibt jeden Tag neue Chancen - nutze sie nicht !

10.000 A$ x 870%= 87.000 A$ = kiss !
hi, ich denke unsere goldfans hier sind nicht so überrascht, denn die kleinen Goldminenen haben noch viel potenzial. Wenn man die Kurse der kleinen ansieht, bewegen soe sich noch auf zum großen teil auf historischen tiefen.
Es felt meiner meinung nach nur noch der unerwartete Goldanstieg und die werte explodieren, denn umsätze sind eh
gering bis keine und der wer welche besitzt kann wahrscheinlich sich beruhigt zurücklehnen und warten.....

Minotaur shrs jump on copper drill results

SYDNEY, Nov 30 (Reuters) - Shares in Australian outback prospector Minotaur Resources Ltd bolted 22 percent higher in early trading on Friday after the company said exploration work supported evidence of a big copper find. Minotaur shares peaked at A$2.80, a gain of 22 percent, before easing back by 10:45 a.m. (2345 GMT) to be up 39 cents or nearly 17 percent at A$2.69.

Minotaur termed the latest exploration work at its Mt Woods prospect "progressive" and indicating visible copper mineralisation.

Earlier this month, Minotaur shares staged a more than ten-fold increase after releasing initial exploration findings suggesting it had discovered a giant lode.

Until November 14, Minotaur, which listed on the Australian bourse in December 2000, had traded only as high as 18 cents. Since then its shares have run as high as A$2.93 on November 26.

The company has said the property could host copper and and gold mineralisation of the order of the nearby rich Olympic Dam deposit mined by WMC Ltd (ASX: WMC).

Minotaur, along its 6.91 percent shareholder BHP Billiton Ltd/Plc (ASX: BHP)BLT.L, has the rights to earn a 70 percent interest in the prospect by spending A$4 million on exploration.

The prospect covers 3800 square kilometres.

Greenstone Has More Than Nearology To Tempt Predators.

The discoveries by Minotaur and Gateway have given Australian investors a couple of useful jabs of adrenalin in the closing weeks of 2001. These stocks jumped so high and so fast, however, that there could be a bit of a reaction in the cold light of day after the Christmas celebrations are over. In these circumstances it may be as well to search for companies which missed out in the immediate euphoria and Greenstone Resources is . such a one. Just after Gateway Minimg announced that it had hit a spectacular intersection at the end of November which averaged 9.06 g/t gold over 25 metres at its Gidgee Prospect, Greenstone pointed out that the Montague joint venture, in which Greenstone has a 25 per cent interest carried to feasibility, surrounds this prospect.

Nearology is quite a science among Australian investors as those who remember the Poseidon days will know. It has come back into favour recently around Musgrave and Minotaur, but the claim by Greenstone is a fair one as Gateway itself provided a map which confirmed that the mineralisation corridor goes right through the Montague jv tenement, EL 57/390. Moreover the anomaly is open to the east onto this exploration licence, particularly in the northern sections where shallow RAB drilling by the jv partners had generated +100ppb anomalies over a strike length of 700m.well before the Gateway announcement . Intersections in the mineralised corridor immediately adjacent to the licence had a number of interesting intersections including one, coincidentally, of 25 metres at 9.06 g/t gold.. Greenstone also holds another exploration licence 57/239 in joint venture with Gateway, which encompasses all the ground along the trend to the north-west of the Herald-Gateway joint venture.

Proximity to Gidgee is only one facet of Greenstone`s operations which have been attracting more attention since it acquired a private company, Opus Exploration, earlier in the year. Opus brought with it the promising Indee gold prospect in the Pilbara and three senior exploration executives from Normandy Mining who tired of big company operations and the pressures of consolidation. Greg Edwards and Lance Bovey have joined the board of Greenstone and Bruce Tomich will be called on as a consultant. No time is being wasted and the current rights issue is intended to accelerate drilling at Indee before the wet season in February. Within six months, therefore, a lot more will be know about this prospect and the ex-Normandy team are betting their boots it will be good.

It is not the only shot in their locker, however. Mr Edwards was exploration manager for Western Australia and the Northern Territory before taking charge of evaluations of project and company acquisition opportunities in Australia and elsewhere. It is not difficult to imagine how many good things flowed across his desk which were just too small for Normandy. Now he is with Greenstone the whole basis of his judgement can be more flexible and he admits that three or four other prospects are being analysed .

In addition to the Indee gold project up near Port Hedland where Greenstone, via Opus, is going to earn a majority interest in some 2,000 sq kms of an Archaean greenstone belt, Opus has two exploration licences covering 195 sq kms over the 17 Mile Hill Dome and Black Hills Dome areas near Telfer in Western Australia. Located within 30 kilometres of the Telfer mine owned by Newcrest, these two prospects offer an outstanding opportunity to explore for world-class gold (and possibly copper) resources, similar to those at Telfer, using new concepts developed by Opus.

The area`s prospectivity has also been enhanced by the occurrence of numerous dolerite bodies similar to the host rocks at the Magnum (Anketell Joint Venture) discovery, 80 kilometres to the north. Economic grades of copper and gold mineralisation at Magnum were announced in 1998. The other asset Opus brings to the party is a substantial exploration database of prospects in the archaean Yilgarn gold province and selected proterozoic regions of the Northern Territory and Queensland.

Next year promises to be an exciting one for Australian juniors. Once the lowest hanging fruit from the current phase of consolidation has been gathered, the next rush will be acquisitions of junior explorers with big projects. By that time the Normandy team could have made Greenstone quite an attractive target.

Grenfell [ASX: GRN]: Buying. A junior explorer in the currently hotter-than-hot Gawler Craton where the Minotaur/BHP Billiton joint venture has triggered an exploration boom with their Olympic Dam-style discovery. The excitement has rubbed off on Grenfell, thanks to its land position. There is also a whisper of a better-than-average corporate deal that should create more interest in stock. I have bought 1,148,985 shares at A14 cents each, a total investment of A$160,858.

Hähähä, verzockt!
