Well, it's been a long and rocky road but any mining investor worth their salt is fully aware of the mining cycle and how long these things can take to reach fruition.  Of course, one would be a complete mug to think the share price would not flucuate wildly during this time Wink

Next Tuesday 27th could just see the light at the end of the long tunnel start to shine more brightly when the LLTNPA meet to decide whether or not to grant planning permission for the new proposal.

Apologies for the delay, Cal.  I was through at the successful planning decision and got caught out by the snow for a few days.

My initial entry point was circa the equivalent of £4 (pre 100-1 share consolidation) & I've been averaging down since with the odd wee sell here and there to keep myself in good shape Wink I have, however, also bought at the equivalent of £5.50 back at the very start when I was new to investing Crazy

I wouldn't pay any heed to the bullshine that old remoaning plonker ununitedbiscuitbollocks heaves up.  He's all discombobulated about Brexit and is undergoing therapy, as far as I'm aware.

Normally, a poster wouldn't keep pushing a stock that has tanked as deeply as this; however, if trilby is one of the investors in the company who got invested behind the left margin of the sharepricegraph (as trilby is saying) then any opportunity to find a buyer is welcome.

ScotGold Resources' Richard Gray says the final tranche of funding for its Cononish gold mine is "the key that's going to open up the whole future for us".
Gray adds that despite being a small gold mine, the high profitability has led to plenty of support from a senior shareholder.
In terms of time frames, Gray says commercial production is planned to commence around the first half of 2019.

Gold in the Scottish Highlands
Finally, one to look out for is ScotGold, which recently raised the US$12mn (£9mln) required to get the Cononish Project up and running in the Scottish Highlands.
Investors tipped in, but around US$6.6mln of the funding is coming by way of a secured loan provided by the spread betting multi-millionaire and chairman Nat le Roux.
On a world scale, Cononish will be a minnow, churning out just 23,500 ounces of gold a year.
Small it may be, but the project also perfectly formed, generating life of mine earnings of up to US$133mln (£100mln) at a gold price of US$1,150 (in other words well below the current price).
The net present value of the project, meanwhile, is anywhere between US$30 and US$60mln – which represents a significant premium to ScotGold's current market value of US$12.6mln.

The rare romance of Scottish gold
The first gold sourced from a mine in the Highlands is being crafted into dramatic jewels

Kate Finnigan
A necklace made of Scottish gold sounds like a mythical treasure from a folk song or Game of Thrones. Could you really find enough gold for a necklace in Scotland? Or anywhere in Britain, for that matter?

It seems impossible, but on a warm evening in Edinburgh I found myself wearing a necklace with a delicate cascade of mixed-cut green and blue tourmalines alongside brilliant-cut diamonds, set in exceptionally rare, single mine-origin Scottish gold.

The Tyndrum Waterfall necklace is just one of the highlights of a dramatic new collection of fine jewellery from Hamilton & Inches — a 153-year-old Edinburgh jewellery store and workshop, with a name that sounds straight out of Harry Potter and, perhaps fittingly, counts JK Rowling as a client. The Royal Warrant holders are the first to be able to use gold poured from the Cononish mine in the Highlands, the only commercial gold mine in Scotland.

Cononish lies at the foot of Ben Lui, within the boundaries of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. It was identified as a viable gold mine in the 1980s, but it has been known that gold was in this area since at least the 13th century, after which people have successfully panned the rivers and streams. Prospectors sought their fortune in the hills nearby in the Scottish gold rush of the 19th century.

But extracting gold is a process that requires significant technology and capital. Scotgold brought the expertise and financing to the project when it bought the mine in 2007, developing its plan for the site over the next six years. A dramatic fall in the gold price disrupted the project, but the company was recapitalised in 2014 by Nat Le Roux, now chairman and a major shareholder.
        Queen of Scots ring, £29,995, Hamilton & Inches
Naturally, an attempt to mine in a national park does not come without controversy. Planning permission was turned down in 2010 after objections from prominent environmental and conservation groups but was granted in 2012 after a detailed environmental programme, including reforesting and landscaping, was eventually agreed.

In September 2016, the company celebrated the first pour of Scottish gold at Cononish. The mine will not be fully operational until next spring, when it is estimated it will then produce up to 29,000 ounces of gold each year for the projected eight years of its life, with a predicted value of £258m.

Initially, Scotgold produced commemorative gold coins. It could have continued on this path with a straightforward commercial offering — a job lot of standardised rings, or wedding bands for couples hoofing it up to Gretna Green, should anyone still be doing that these days.

Instead, it chose to partner with Hamilton & Inches, and under the leadership of the jeweller’s chief executive, Victoria Houghton, Hamilton & Inches’ small in-house team of craftsmen, designers, engravers and polishers has created 30 different pieces of fine jewellery.

These are the first in a series of celebratory jewels that will be released in time, inspired by Victorian jewellery and Scotland’s royal heritage, and are intended to be grandly romantic future heirlooms.

“The collection is a homage to the history of the company,” says Houghton. “This is the first collection from Hamilton & Inches made entirely in the workshop. The craftspeople made everything from scratch using traditional equipment the way they have done for 100 years. Nothing was cast, everything is handmade from sheets of Scottish gold.”

Pieces include the Queen of Scots ring (pictured above), a sumptuous 8.87-carat, cushion-cut Saltire-blue sapphire, with epaulette-diamonds either side imparting a modern feel and detailed craftsmanship in the gold that includes more than 100 individual solderings. The delicate green and blue gemstones of the Tyndrum Waterfall necklace and earrings are inspired by the colours when the sunlight hits the water in the fall above the mine.
        Holyrood Palace cuff, £24,250, Hamilton & Inches
The 22-carat hammered gold Holyrood Palace Cuff (above), studded with five mixed-cut coloured tourmalines, resemble something a warrior queen might brandish. Blood-red spinel and black pearl drops on pavé diamond hoops (below) look straight out of Saoirse Ronan’s wardrobe from Mary Queen of Scots. Many of the drops on the earrings can be detached and worn as studs, lending them a versatility that was often found in Victorian jewellery but seems appropriately modern.

A fleur-de-lis theme honouring Queen Mary’s connection to France as Queen Consort recurs within the collection — perhaps most satisfyingly in the Goldmine Rock set of earrings, pendant and a sturdy signet ring, with the delicate gold central motif set on a shield shape of white mine rock from Cononish, the raw material from which the gold is extracted.
        Loch Leven earring, £38,750, Hamilton & Inches
A member of the design team says “the idea [is] taking something not intrinsically of worth and turning it into something priceless”.

The earrings and pendant are reversible with a Scottish Saltire picked out in diamonds and sapphires on the back.

“The stones are precious, but not crazy,” says Hamilton. “We’ve used diamonds but we wanted a range where there was something for everybody. So the collection retails from £1,500 to £100,000.” It will be available from October this year; from December, clients will be able to commission bespoke designs from gold to be mined in the spring of 2020.

Hamilton & Inches’ warren of small workshops sits above the George Street shop, reached by rickety staircases, the walls of which are crowded with cuttings and certificates honouring the company’s history and particularly its royal connection.

The Queen has visited twice — most recently in 2016 to celebrate the store’s 150th anniversary, and the tiny lift was refurbished for her arrival.

The company was first granted a Royal Warrant more than 120 years ago and given the giddy title of “His Majesty’s Clockmaker and Keeper and Dresser of His Majesty’s Clocks, Watches and Pendulums in Palaces and Houses in his Ancient Kingdom of Scotland.” Since 2010 it’s been known more prosaically as Silversmiths and Clock Specialists to Her Majesty The Queen.

All of the gold used in the collection bears the official Scotgold precious metal mark (a stag’s head) and is certified by the Edinburgh Assay Office as being entirely from the Scotgold Resources mine. That purity of provenance is no doubt part of the appeal for the several prominent Scots — names withheld by Hamilton & Inches — who have already expressed an interest in pieces from this brand new, national treasure trove.

History of Scottish Gold
Until this time, only tiny grains of gold were found glittering in riverbeds in the Scottish Highlands during the 1800s. It was enough to start a Scottish Gold rush with many hopeful people searching and panning, though little was found and less survived. Just two hallmarked Scottish Gold artefacts are archived at the Museum of Scotland.

An exciting chapter is now being written in the history of Scottish Gold jewellery. For the first time ever, Scottish Gold mines are extracting this rare metal for commercial use. Hamilton & Inches is one of only two jewellers in the world with access to Scottish Gold, creating authentic fine jewellery ethically sourced from Tyndrum.

Scottish Gold has been used in jewellery for hundreds of years. With the earliest of known pieces dating back to the Iron Age. Our most famous historical leaders such as Mary Queen of Scots and Robert the Bruce were known to have adorned themselves in the treasured element. Scotland’s captivation with gold has been a significant part of our culture for thousands of years.

During the Victorian era, many Scots were enthused by the discovery of gold in California. The stories travelled across the North Atlantic Ocean, inspiring many to seek their fortune in the new land. However, many of those who panned for gold were untrained in the field and mistook gold for pyrite, making it historically known as the Fool’s Gold Rush.

Ethically Sourced Scottish Gold
For centuries, gold has primarily been collected from rivers, a more widely available and accessible method which does not work reliably and is not commercially viable. Most of the world’s gold has been retrieved through mining, due to the efficiency and effectiveness of the process. Scottish Gold now finally has the ability to take its rightful place on a worldwide platform. The introduction of the mine at Tyndrum means we can produce ethical and pure Scottish Gold that is commercially viable.

Today, ScotGold Resources proudly boasts Single Mine Origin status ensuring all the gold is sourced solely from Tyndrum. It is mined and refined without coming into contact with any other gold. It is pure, ethical and incredibly rare. This is a momentous time for not only Hamilton & Inches but for the future of uniquely Scottish-sourced gold. The venture is 150 years in the making, and being able to produce jewellery that supports the elegant heritage of Hamilton & Inches is one of our most paramount achievements.

The Scottish Gold collection pays homage to the unrivalled beauty and treasured legacy of the country from which it takes its name. By harnessing the distinctive tones and rhythms of our waterfalls, alongside the unparalleled architecture that shapes our iconic landmarks, the collection draws from distinctly Scottish themes and expertly weaves them into each historically inspired piece.

New OU/BBC Series: Gold Town
Dr Julie Robson from EEES has been working alongside colleagues from FASS as an academic consultant on a new OU/BBC series called Gold Town. Starting on Sunday 7 March (21.00), this series will be on BBC Scotland (a digital channel).

Buried deep in the spectacular landscape of Scotland’s highlands, there’s gold! This 3-part series follows the fortunes of a band of miners, many of whom are new to the job, as they attempt to get it out. If the mining company can make it work, this will be Scotland’s very first commercial gold mine.

Filmed in the Scottish Highlands over a year and a half, the series follows the constant challenges at the mine, and life in the local community, a busy tourist hub that up until now relies mainly on tourism.

Episode 1: A mining company are attempting to establish Scotland’s first gold mine. It could bring valuable employment to the local community, but the conditions are challenging

Episode 2: Winter creates more problems at the mine. An accident rocks the team. Over 24 million pounds in the red, the whole project is at risk.

Episode 3: The pandemic hits the UK, and all mining stops. Local businesses take a terrible hit, but the price of hold is on the up. By the end of the year many fortunes hang in the balance.
