Anglo Asian Mining publish reserves estimate for the Gadir underground mine
Anglo Asian Mining PLC (LON:AAZ) has published its mineral resources and ore reserve estimate for its Gadir underground mine in Azerbaijan. The company is currently finalising the Gadir resources statement and ore reserves estimate in accordance with the JORC (2012) Code and will publish the full JORC (2012) Gadir mineral resources and ore reserve estimates by the end of March of this year. CFO Bill Morgan and Director of Geology Steve Westhead tell Proactive London why Anglo Asian is now at something of a 'sweet spot' in terms of opportunities and growth potential. Proved and probable ore reserves (at a cut-off grade of 1.2 grammes per tonne of gold) totalled 797,000 tonnes at a grade of 2.73 grammes per tonne gold containing about 70,000 ounces of gold, 11.86 grammes per tonne silver containing 304 thousand ounces of silver and 0.17% copper containing 1,387 tonnes of copper. The company also revealed it will declare a minimum final dividend for 2018 of 3 cents (US) a share and a minimum total dividend in respect of 2019 of at least 6 cents.

Anglo Asian Mining Plc's (LON:AAZ) Bill Morgan and Steve Westhead discuss with Proactive their three-year rolling programme of geological exploration of near mine, brownfield and greenfield areas on its ground in Azerbaijan.

The target discoveries would ideally be similar to Anglo Asian’s Ugur open pit mine and have the potential to be quickly developed into operating mines.

Anglo Asian on track for FY production guidance, says CFO
Bill Morgan, chief financial officer of Azerbaijan-focused Anglo Asian Mining Plc (LON:AAZ), says the company has seen a “noticeable pick up in production in April and May-to-date” which gives him confidence the company will meet full year targets. The first quarter of the year was behind last year’s pace, due to bad weather at the mine, but the recent pick-up, coupled with the installation of a new sag mill in the third quarter, mean the company “should be able to meet our forecasts”, he says. Morgan speaks to Proactive Investors as Anglo posted 2015 results, which showed record gold production from its Gedabek mine with total output of the yellow metal rising to 72,032 ounces, compared to 60,285 ounces in 2014.

Anglo Asian Mining on track to hit production targets, says CFO
Anglo-Asian Mining PLC (LON:AAZ) chief financial officer Bill Morgan says the firm is on course to meet its gold and copper production targets for the year at its Gedabek project in Azerbaijan. Morgan tells Proactive: “We said at the beginning of our year that we would do 73,000oz to 77,000oz of gold and 1,700 to 2,100 tonnes of copper and we are confident at the moment that we will still achieve that.” He adds that current run rates back up this claim, and says the addition of a second SAG mill in August should also help. Morgan also says that as the operation develops at the relatively new plant, the firm is starting to benefit from a number of “general efficiencies”.

Anglo Asian’s finance chief on copper plans and zinc potential
Bill Morgan, finance chief at Anglo Asian Mining (LON:AAZ), comments on the company’s plans to boost its copper and zinc production in Azerbaijan next year. A flotation plant at the firm’s Gedabek mine has allowed it to start shipping copper – with 500 wet tonnes expected to be shipped by the end of this year. The plan is to ramp-up production at the plant going forward. Zinc found in the ore had been contaminating the copper – but that’s been sorted and the firm is now looking at producing a zinc concentrate in addition to copper. Meanwhile, Anglo is comfortable at the current gold price level and will look to maintain annual production around the 72,000 and 74,000 ounce mark in 2016.
Anglo Asian finance chief on Gedabek gold mine turnaround
Bill Morgan, finance chief at Anglo Asian Mining (LON:AAZ), says the firm has put last year’s technical issues behind it and is well on the way to turning its Gedabek gold mine in Azerbaijan around. Last year the miner experienced difficulties with lower metal prices, together with the first full year's operational cost of the agitation leach plant at Gedabek, impacting profitability. “There’s been no silver bullet in terms of the turnaround – it’s been hard work,” said Morgan. Yesterday the firm said Gedabek set a new gold production record with 35,938 ounces in the six months to June 30, compared with 27,054 ounces in the same period of 2014.

Azerbaijan-focused miner Anglo Asian Mining Plc (LON:AAZ) said its Gedabek gold, copper and silver mine was now hooked up to the national grid. CFO Bill Morgan tells Proactive: ''This is quite a good thing for us really and it means two things.

Given the context of a business of our size that is a very significant cost saving''. ''Also, it means that there are now no longer any power constraints on us expanding the mine''. ''If we want to start upgrading the plant or putting in new machinery or doing anything really is not an issue''.

🇲🇲 Myanmar's Jade Curse | 101 East
Gold is valuable but jade is priceless, so goes a Chinese saying. For centuries, the Chinese consider jade an imperial stone with mystical properties. Today it is coveted all over China as a status symbol, a collectible and an investment. Demand from increasingly wealthy Chinese drives the value of jade through the roof. At this year's Shanghai World Jewellery Expo, auctioneers put the opening bid for top grade jade items at more than $160 a gram, exceeding four times the price of gold. Intricately designed pieces, made from top grade jade known as jadeite, are viewed as attractive investments despite the lack of scientific valuation methods. In recent years, jadeite has provided better returns than real estate. But the imperial stone delivers a death sentence to treasure hunters in Myanmar, where China's jadeite comes from. Most of Myanmar's raw jade enters a murky black market. Its official revenue from jade exports over from 2011 to 2014 was $1.3bn. But Harvard University's Ash Center estimates total jade sales - including through unofficial channels - were $8bn in 2011 alone, suggesting most of the revenue does not go into government coffers. The Myanmar government will not speak to us on camera. But our investigations reveal a corrupt senior government official who works with businessmen in the illegal trade of raw jade, including helping to falsify tax documents. In northern Kachin state, we follow jade smugglers to the remote Hpakant mining town, the source of the world's best jade. The men are part of the government's border guard force. The officer in charge tells us how he pays off army and police commanders along the smuggling trail to China. Hpakant is out of bounds to foreigners and no foreign journalists have been known to make it there for years. Large mining companies suspended operations here in 2012 after the Kachin Independence Army and the Myanmar government went to war the preceding year, ending a 17-year ceasefire. With peace talks stalling, most companies have yet to resume excavation. Despite the tension, tens of thousands of small time jade pickers have flooded Hpakant to sift through mine tailings, risking life and limb to toil in harsh conditions, hoping to strike jackpot. Some work alone, others in groups supported by businessmen. Their findings often go straight into the black market, forming the unregulated bedrock of the industry today. A dark force fuels their labour. Jade picker Aik San estimates 75 percent of the miners have become drug addicts. They get their daily dose of heroin or yama - a type of methamphetamine - from drug dens around town. It numbs them from their backbreaking labour and helps them work longer hours in the harsh weather. With hidden cameras, we obtain shocking footage from the drug dens, revealing the scale of drug abuse that infests the underbelly of the jade trade. We also find a drug rehabilitation centre in Kachin state with more than 50 recovering addicts from the mining town. One of them, Aung Kyaw Moe, painfully shares how his employer paid him and fellow workers with heroin to get them hooked so they would work harder for their next dose. As the hammer goes down in major Chinese cities for more glitzy jade items auctioned off at record levels, wealthy collectors celebrate yet another treasure possessed. It offers stark contrast to the wretched lives of mine pickers at the bottom of the supply chain, in a land far away. 101 East investigates the jade smuggling trail and uncovers the human cost of the imperial stone.

🇦🇺 Australia's boomtown curse | 101 East
Australia is blessed with rugged beauty and a wealth of natural resources - including coal, iron, natural gas and gold. Such minerals are powering Australia's economy to record highs. And as demand from China for more resources grows, new mines continue to open across the country. But critics say there is a dark side to this success story. Mining regions attract transient workers keen to make a quick buck, creating social and environmental problems and a rising crime rate. Mines are also draining Australia's pool of skilled labour from other industries and driving up wages. 101 East asks: What is the cost of Australia's mining boom? Here Australian 101 East fixer Sian Gard takes us behind the scenes of the 12-day film shoot with reporter-producer Chan Tau Chou and cameraman Lee Ali. When you travel what is the worst thing that could happen? Some might say missing a flight, others might say you get crammed into the centre seat on a full flight. But when you are part of a film crew, one of the more difficult challenges is travelling with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment. When an international film crew from Al Jazeera English calls you and says they want to come to Australia and film a story about the mining industry in two weeks time, the first thing you say is "I would love to be a part of this incredible story". The second thing you do? Start working fast. The scope and depth of the mining industry, its impact on the country and the state can be broken down into small digestible chunks as political, economic and social, but the bigger picture is a great deal more complicated. The Australian mining industry has seen exponential growth over the last 10 years with increasing exports to China. Western Australia, considered the economic hub of the country, now holds the nation's purse strings and is host to some of the world's most influential mining and resource sector companies. Perth, considered the second-most isolated city in the world, has seen changes on many fronts that not only includes an increase in resource dollars but a higher cost of living, a politically strong liberal state government and increasing financial disparity between mining and resource sector employees and everyone else. So how does one get all these issues into one story? You make phone calls and lots of them. One-hundred-and-eighty-one kilogrammes of camera equipment and an introductory dinner later, we are off filming in Perth and Karratha. We have 12 days to interview a range of people invested in the mining and resources sector in various ways. Finance experts, counsellors who see the downside of living a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) lifestyle, business operators who say their home towns are dying due to the mining industry and police who are left to clean up the alcohol and drug fuelled mess from workers blowing off steam. The biggest challenge of a shoot on this scale? Distance, time and getting people to talk on camera. Logistically, organising a film shoot for a crew that is flying from Malaysia to Perth in western Australia and then Karratha in the north-west of western Australia, with budgets and deadlines is exciting, fun and a challenge. Accommodation, hire cars, flights, places to eat, filming permissions and scheduling interviews, your world becomes one mission and one only. Get what the film crew needs so that the story is done. Karratha in the north of the state is a 22-hour drive by car or a two-hour flight on one of two commercial carriers that fly every hour to the isolated desert town. After checking in with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment or 13 cases of luggage and arriving in Karratha, we unpack and our long days begin. The strain of putting together a half-hour documentary in a foreign country and dealing with tight deadlines can put a great deal of pressure on any crew. People generally get tired, they snap and sometimes when you are confined to a small space for hours on end (i.e. a car that is loaded to the roof with camera equipment) the last thing you want to do is see the people you are working with. But Chan Tau Chou and Lee Ali approached the long stressful days with humour, grace, professionalism and the ability to sleep in the most unusual locations (on top of windy rocky outcrops). Filming in the north-west was a whirlwind of driving long distances, climbing rocky terrain, rising at 4am and falling into bed at midnight with back-to-back interviews in between. I am excited to see the final product of Australia's boomtown curse. I think it is a story that people need to hear about.
