Kasbah Resources - Exposure to the Tin Market

Kasbah Resources Limited (ASX:KAS) was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange on 27th April 2007 with the objective of bringing the Achmmach tin project in northern Morocco into commercial production. After completing the major evaluation steps and analysis, Kasbah Resources Limited (ASX:KAS) is in the final stages of preparing a definitive feasibility study to develop a 750ktpa underground mine and associated processing facility. Kasbah intends to produce an average of 4,500tpa of tin ore in concentrate (~1.3% of world production) over a 10 year mine life, mining current reserves, with  expectations of extending mine life through further resource conversion.
Kasbah Resources - Exposure to the Tin Market

A key issue moving through calendar year 2018 will be the source of funding for the construction of Achmmach. As at the time of writing the company has approximately A$3.1M in cash with debt of A$1M owed to its main shareholder Pala Investments.
Assuming all inclusive initial capital costs of ~US$100M and if it can be agreed to by shareholders, JV partners and banks that a 50/50 debt to equity split is practical, then Kasbah would need to raise equity capital of ~US$37.5M (A$48M).

Plastics Capital PLC (LON:PLA) has reported a strong set of results for the financial year ended March 2018. Revenues of £76.7mln and earnings per share (EPS) of 9.5p are both slightly ahead of our forecast, which was last updated at the time of the detailed Plastics Capital trading update on May 2.

The most important headline metric, in our view, is the organic (like-for-like) revenue growth of 13.0%, which reflects a strategy shift undertaken last year to focus more on top-line growth.

  • New image and impetus from an overhauled management team
  • Company is refocused on African projects
  • Earning in on projects in Cameroon - a relatively new frontier
  • Potential revenue streams from legacy Turkish project portfolio
  • A major as a joint venture (JV) partner in Senegal in the form of IAMGOLD
  • Africa is again being seen by investors as the most prospective and least explored territory in the mining universe
  • Cash stood around £1.3mln at the end of December, with another £0.5mln due in from the taxman in the near future


This company may be familiar to many investors under its previous guise as Stratex International, when its focus was as a hybrid developer/project generator, with a strong bias towards Turkey.


Now Oriole Resources PLC is primarily an exploration company, operating in Africa and Europe but with some legacy exposure through investment in, and royalties on, the projects it incubated in Turkey since its listing in 2006.


Oriole is focused on early-stage gold exploration in Cameroon and the more advanced Dalafin gold project in Senegal, where Iamgold has the option to spend US$8mln to earn a 70% interest.


It also has residual interests and royalties in projects in Africa and Turkey that it anticipates will generate cash flow (and capital gains) in the future.

Ceylon Graphite Corp, is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange. The company is an explorer for graphite and engaged in the development of graphite mines in Sri Lanka. The company holds exploration rights over a land package of around 121km². These rights cover areas of historic graphite production from the early twentieth century and represent a majority of the known graphite occurrences in Sri Lanka.

  • The price of most categories of graphite have picked up since 2017 but without going crazy
  • Ceylon Graphite has accumulated a large land package with significant evidence of past production from the glory days of Sri Lanka as the world's prime producer of graphite
  • Except for Syrah, most entrants are moderately sized and should not "spoil" the market
  • China has now switched over to being a graphite importer
  • Graphite price movements and stockpiled quantities remain essentially at the discretion of the Chinese
  • The market could be flooded short-term by the massively oversized Syrah mine in Mozambique
