He owns it around these levels. They have mines in Bolivia and Spain and looking to acquire in Argentina. The property they just bought has costs of $500-$650 per ounce of gold. He is concerned about the revolving door on management. He does not know where gold prices are going to go. He will continue to hold it.

They have mines in Spain and Bolivia, but costs are too high and management changes too often. It has disappointed him a lot. They need to reduce costs. Management is overpaid which bothers him.

Bought this at around $.30 a share. About 2 years ago, he was buying into a lot of gold companies. The company hasn't done well, but have really improved operations. Has 2 major mines, one in Bolivia and one in Spain. They've done a lot of CLR work to improve what they are getting out of the ground. The output is better. Their moving in the right direction. He is happy to Hold this. One bad thing is that management changes too often.

He bought and then watched it cascade down. He has been thinking of buying more recently. He is happy to hold it. The gold price has helped, but they have re-tooled and now mines are producing more gold. He thinks they have a tremendous amount of upside.

He is underwater. They have gold and copper mines in Spain and Bolivia. Their major backer seemed to be giving up on them. It seems they are now doubling down on it. They are sticking with it. They are doing projects to expand the resource. Their all in costs are way too high. He is happy to hold it. It would be a buy but not for the short term.

This stock has done very well. Doesn’t own it, because he has a prejudice against small mines. The management are good small mine operators, but in his experience, everything that can go wrong in a big mine, can go wrong in small mines, but they never make you big money.

(A Top Pick June 19/15. Down 31.03%.) When they reported their recent quarterly results, they got a “going concern” attached to it. That often means bankruptcy is not too far away, however their debt is only a few million dollars. They have to do some reclamation in Spain which will cost them $6 million, plus in Bolivia they wanted to get the mine moving forward. Just got a loan of $7.9 million for their Bolivia holdings. Production is primarily gold and copper. He doesn’t know who the CEO will be going forward. A good speculative buy.

This is undergoing a transition. The CEO is leaving. They are trying to straighten out their operations in Spain, which are fairly high cost compared to their operations in Bolivia. He likes this and is happy to hold it.

One of the gold companies he bought that has not done well. Paid $0.28 for this. Was recently at their AGM when the CEO said she was going to move on. CFO has taken over the reins on an interim basis. Looking to raise about $6 million for their project in Spain, which is actually producing gold. Bolivia holdings are still going at a reasonable pace with very, very low all-in sustaining costs. Not having a CEO leaves a big question mark. He is happy to hold, and he’ll just wait. Thinks it has a fair bit of upside. Has $17 million in the bank with only about $1.5 million of debt.

They have been having some difficulties in Spain. Just made an announcement and it looks like their reserve life is increasing. They are also in Bolivia. Likes management and is happy to hold this. Partially down because of the price of gold, but also they have had bad news. Have about $3 million in debt and about $20 million in cash on the balance sheet.

Orvana is a very small gold mining company. They have two plays, one in Bolivia and one in Spain. The mine in Bolivia may have 5-6 years left on the mine's life, while the one in Spain may only have a couple of years left (trying to extend it though). They have lowered their debt, but have kept some debt on their books because they were cautious of what the Bolivian government might do. He could see it going over a dollar.

Has a lot of confidence in the CEO who has a good history. Just reported results and they are making money. Have about $22 million in the bank. Reduced their debt over the last 3 years from $70 million to under $4 million. His Sell target on this is $1.24.

Operation in Bolivia is making decent money. Have branched out into Spain, which has a tough deposit. Think they are having issues in working out the kinks of that one. Also have a row checked in Michigan, which he doesn't know enough about.

Reduced his position over the last couple of years. Very cheap stock. Their mine in Bolivia has been pumping out money in the last decade and they built up their cash war chest. Developed a new subset out of their mine in the last year. Also bought a mine in Spain, which they've been building out. They are looking at raising some money.
