Codelco: Größter Kupfer-Produzent der Welt vermeldet historischen Verlust

Die Krise am Kupfermarkt sorgt für einen ungewöhnlichen Verlust beim weltgrößten Produzenten:

World’s No.1 copper miner Codelco posts historic loss of $1.4bn in 2015

Chile’s Codelco, the world’s No.1 copper producer, posted Thursday (in Spanish) a net loss of $ 1.4 billion for 2015 related to asset impairments and a sharp fall of prices for the red metal.

The company, which produces nearly 11% of the total global copper supply, booked $2.4 billion in write-downs, and said the results were its worst bottom-line figures since it began issuing earnings reports in the early 1990s

Brasilianische Energiebranche: Petrobras verkündet Rekord-Verlust

Hierzu ein aktueller Artikel von Zerohedge:

Record Loss For Petrobras As Political And Economic Crisis Worsen

Tyler Durden's picture




Petrobras reported a record loss for the fourth quarter, a horrendous performance that raises questions about the company’s ability to handle its mountain of debt.
The state-owned Brazilian oil company announced that it lost more than 36 billion reais in the fourth quarter, or more than USD$10 billion, a 40 percent increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. The losses were all the more staggering because the previous year’s figures were inflated due to the massive corruption scandal, which continues to bedevil the company.
The problem for Petrobras is that it has the world’s largest pile of debt, bigger than any other oil company. And that debt, much of which is priced in U.S. dollars, is becoming more expensive to service, particularly since the Brazilian real has depreciated significantly over the past year. As The Wall Street Journal notes, Petrobras’ debt has jumped to just about 800 billion reais, or about 10 percent higher than at the end of 2015, despite spending cuts..

Osisko Gold Royalties steigt bei Arizona Mining ein

Exzellenter Deal für Arizona Mining (T.AZ), die einen starken Aktionär und Projektpartner für das Hauptprojekt Hermosa in Arizona gewinnen:

Arizona Mining to raise $15.59-million from Osisko Gold

2016-03-21 09:37 ET - News Release
Also News Release (C-OR) Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd
Mr. Paul Ireland of Arizona Mining reports


Arizona Mining Inc. has entered into a term sheet with Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd. for a 1-per-cent net smelter royalty on any lead/zinc/silver sulphide ores mined from its Hermosa project for proceeds of $10-million. In addition, Osisko and certain of its insiders will subscribe for a total of 9.99 million units at a price of 56 cents per unit, calculated using the five-day volume-weighted average share price, for gross proceeds of $5.59-million. Each unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole common share purchase warrant is convertible into one common share of the company at a price of 75 cents for a period of 18 months from closing.

Proceeds from the financings when combined with the company's recent private placement for $2.8-million will be primarily used for an aggressive drill campaign on the Taylor deposit and for general working capital purposes. The royalty is subject to negotiation of a definitive agreement. Closing of the private placement is subject to regulatory approval.

Jim Gowans, Arizona Mining's president and chief executive officer, commented: "The drilling to date that comprises the current resource on the Taylor deposit only tests a small portion of the prospective terrain as defined by geology, geophysics and historic drilling. This drill program will give us a much better idea of the size and grade potential of the deposit. We have two drills currently on site and expect to add an additional three."

Fission Uranium vergrößert Weltklasse Uran-Discovery im Athabasca Basin

Fission Uranium (T.FCU) verkündet heute weitere, erfolgreiche Explorationsresultate von den laufenden Arbeitsprogrammen auf den PLS-Liegenschaften im kanadischen Athabasca Basin.

Der solide finanzierte Projektentwickler und Explorer legte die Ergebnisse von 4 neuen Bohrlöchern vor, die alle auf Uran-Mineralisierung trafen. Eine 45 Meter entfernte Expansionsbohrung war dabei erneut erfolgreich, was für sich spricht.

Durch die jüngsten Bohrerfolge ist es Fission nun gelungen, den mineralisierten Trend auf PLS Richtung Westen auf satte 2,58km zu erweitern. Das sind hervorragende Fortschritte und unterstreichen einmal mehr die klasse Arbeit des Geologen- und Explorationsteams.

Fission's COO, Präsident und Chef-Geologe Ross McElroy ist mit den Entwicklungen sehr zufrieden: ".."With yet another successful 45m step-out, the R840W zone is growing rapidly to the west. This bodes well for the eventual size of this high-grade, near-surface zone as well as for the continued blue sky exploration potential of PLS and speaks volumes for the skill of our technical team.."

Im 3. Quartal 2016 visiert Fission ein Update der Ressourcen-Schätzung an. Zahleiche weitere Explorationsnews werden in den nächsten Wochen erwartet..

FISSION INCREASES PLS MINERALIZED STRIKE LENGTH TO 2.58 KM; GROWS 3 ZONES

Exploration drilling at new R840W zone delivers more high-grade growth with 45m step out

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 21, 2016) - FISSION URANIUM CORP. (TSX:FCU)(OTCQX:FCUUF)(FRANKFURT:2FU) ("Fission" or "the Company") is pleased to announce results from four holes at its PLS property, host to the Triple R deposit, in Canada's Athabasca Basin region: two holes drilled on the R840W zone, one drilled on the R780E zone and one on the R1620E zone. Of key importance, hole PLS16-479 (line 960W), a 45m step out to the west of the fast-growing, shallow and high-grade R840W zone, has hit 41.0m total composite mineralization, including 4.79m of total composite >10,000 cps. All four holes were mineralized.
The mineralized trend at PLS, which includes the Triple R deposit, is one of the largest footprints in the Athabasca Basin region and has a new expanded strike length of 2.58km. The Triple R deposit, on which a resource estimate and PEA study were conducted in 2015, occupies approximately 1.05 km of this very large mineralized trend and the remaining 1.53 km comprises 3 other mineralized zones (R840W, R600W and R1620E) with gaps generally represented by very little drilling between them.
Of further importance, the R1620E zone, which lies at the easternmost end of the PLS mineralized trend, has another strongly mineralized hole with PLS16-481 (line 1515E) intercepting 35.5m total composite mineralization, including 0.17m of >10,000 cps.
Ross McElroy, President, COO, and Chief Geologist for Fission, commented:
"With yet another successful 45m step-out, the R840W zone is growing rapidly to the west. This bodes well for the eventual size of this high-grade, near-surface zone as well as for the continued blue sky exploration potential of PLS and speaks volumes for the skill of our technical team."

Gold Regains Early-Week Losses as Rates Held Steady

§  Wednesday saw the Federal Reserve keep interest rates on hold as expected. Accompanying the Fed’s announcement, however, was a more cautious tone regarding both the U.S. and global economy; the Fed’s comments came despite recent data indicating that U.S. inflation may be on the rise, with core CPI rising 2.3% in the 12 months through February (the biggest increase in more than 3 years). In a statement following the decision, Janet Yellen suggested there was inadequate evidence to suggest that inflation has indeed accelerated. In response, the gold price and gold equities regained some of the losses incurred during the week; the price of gold fell to as low as $1,226 per ounce on Tuesday before recovering to finish at $1,256 (↑0.5%) per ounce on Friday, while the S&P/TSX Global Gold Index briefly fell below the 180 mark before recovering to finish at 189. Silver (↑2.1%), platinum (↑1%) and palladium (↑2.5%) also finished the week higher, closing at $15.84, $971 and $590 per ounce respectively. Base metal prices also rose, with copper (↑1.7%) and zinc (↑2.1%) were up, while lead (↓3%) and nickel (↓2%) finished lower at $0.82 and at $3.91 per pound. Uranium prices have rebounded slightly from new recent lows, with the UxC Broker Average (BAP) Price of uranium falling to $28.50 per pound last Friday but rising steadily this week; the progressive increase in the BAP during the week (↑3.5%, at $29.75/lb U3O8) significantly increases the probability of an increase in the more widely quoted and market-visible UxC Weekly Spot uranium price on March 21st, which sat at $28.75/lb at Monday March 14th. Finally, WTI crude prices broke through the $40 level this week for the first time since December, before settling at $39.30 per barrel.
