Xanadu Mines to list Mongolian assets on Australian Stock Exchange

Mogi: Xanadu Mines ticker will be XAM.

November 30 (Xanadu Mines) Xanadu Mines, an Australian-backed, Mongolian-focused minerals explorer and developer, has opened its Initial Public Offer (IPO) ahead of its proposed listing on the Australian Stock Exchange in late December. The IPO seeks to raise between AUD15 million and AUD21 million, valuing the company at between AUD90 and AUD100 million.

Xanadu commenced exploration in Mongolia almost six years ago and in that time has assembled a portfolio of coal and copper/gold assets strategically located in proximity to rail infrastructure and the Chinese border.

On completion of its IPO, Xanadu's strategy will be to step up the acquisition and exploration of new coking and thermal coal opportunities. In 2011, it plans to drill out its Galshar coal to JORC code classification. The company also intends to conduct further geophysics and an extensive drilling campaign on its two advanced South East Gobi porphyry copper and gold projects at Hutag Uul and Elgen-Zos.

The offer is scheduled to close on December 8, 2010 unless brought forward, with Xanadu set to begin trading on the Australian Securities Exchange on December 21.

Mongolia's Hot Currency Play

December 3 (WSJ) The hottest currency play of 2010 may have been for one of Asia's least-recognized currencies: the Mongolian tugrik. The tugrik, also known as the togrog, is up 16.7% so far this year, Robert Flint of Dow Jones Newswires reports. That makes it the best-performing currency against the dollar in 2010.

As his column notes:

"The currency is free-floating, and the capital account is open," so investors could have pocketed real returns, George Saravelos, strategist at Deutsche Bank, wrote in an email report.

But any trader who made money on the tugrik's climb would have indeed been far-sighted and even well-traveled. "I've never heard of it, never seen it traded anywhere," said Brian Dolan, chief currency strategist at Gain Capital. "I honestly think you have to go there to a bank and exchange it."

The tugrik isn't a household name, but investors in Hong Kong's stock market will certainly be familiar with the Mongolia story. The country's vast deposits of gold, copper, iron ore, coal, uranium and other mineral resources is sparking huge interest as a play off China's growth.

Mongolia honours Major Drilling geologist

December 4 (Telegraph-Journal) MONCTON - The government of Mongolia has taken one of a Moncton's firm's employees for its own.

Symbolically, at least.

The Asian country named Major Drilling Group International Inc.'s (TSX:MDI) John Ross Davies as an honorary geologist in a ceremony late last month for his contribution to the developing country's burgeoning mining industry.

Davies' award was approved and signed by Dashdorj Zorigt, the Mongolian minister of mineral resources and energy.

The highest recognition anyone can receive from both the Mongolian industry and the government department, the award recognizes people who have contributed to the development of the exploration industry.

Shares flat as investors sidelined

December 6 (AAP) Close The Australian sharemarket has ended flat, trading in a narrow range for the better part of the day as investors struggled to find impulses.

The benchmark S&P/ASX200 index slipped 5.6 points, or 0.1 per cent, to 4688.6, down from its high of 4706.8 points reached in opening trade. The broader All Ordinaries index lost 0.7 points to 4779.4.

Gold outshone the other sectors, rising 0.8 per cent, while materials gained 0.2 per cent and financials fell 0.5 per cent.

- A$ slips back below 99 US cents
- Asian shares inch up on Fed comments
- Oil hits 26-month high above $US89
- Gold hovers above $US1410 an ounce
- Dow futures are flat at 11,358

"Traders essentially viewed the disappointing jobs number on Friday in the US as building another case for more stimulus measures," said CMC Markets analyst David Taylor. "The Federal Reserve has indicated they may go into bat again, and the market looks like it wants more."

Coal producer Riversdale Mining was one of the stand-outs, rising $2.21 or 15.7 per cent, at $16.31 after confirming it was the target of a $3.5 billion takeover bid from Rio Tinto.

Preliminary national turnover was 2.46 billion shares worth $4.01 billion, with 607 stocks up, 507 down and 371 unchanged.

<Mogi & Friends Fund A/C>

Haranga to save the day

Mogi & Friends Fund is a tiny fund of A$21.8K I created with a few friends to put my own (and a few friends') money where my mouth (just mine) is.

Mogi: #1 is down, #2 is above waters finally, #3 to the rescue.

My first investment is again going down from its high, just above +10%.

My #2 is finally above red with just over +1%.

This brings my total return to at a little over 5%.

Now, my #3, which will list this Thursday, and is almost half of the $21K, will be my savior.
