    HOCH Sold 3.5 Million in Single Block

    Once again we seem to have regressed back to what occurred a couple of years ago. What really is the point of that unless you really want to quote old George about repeating the past which seems to me to be quite the stretch in this situation. I do believe, at least on a short term basis that Hockey is being a little over optimistic, but anyone who is being honest has to agree that getting Hoch out of the picture (remember a couple of years ago that they had 16 million+ shares and expressed an interest in selling those shares), is only a positive event for this company. Hoch has had horrific cash flow issues for a couple of years so whether they lost faith in Goro or not they definitely had very real internal issues which were causing problems both for themselves and also for Goro shareholders. This is a positive event. Whether it is 90 on a scale of 100 or only a 60 I don't know and as always I tend to be more pessimistic but longer term this can only help despite whatever shortterm consequences occur.
    As all know this is a long term holding for me (5 years +) and this Hoch sale is just one more little piece in the long term improvement of this company. I also like that despite the earlier bad blood this seems to have been handled in a professional manner which only gives me a little bit more faith in the ability of Jason and present management to achieve their rather conservative goals. As always, Jmho,

    oh and IP tell your mom to lose some weight , when she gets into the old Pinto the bumper is draggin on the ground on her side of the car and tearing up the asphalt. We just can't have you guys tearing up the streets like that. I know you believe that your obesity would balance the little car out but she has just managed to explode on you. Also the carrying capacity of Pintos is only around 1000 lbs so you two are also over that, which causes further safety concerns for those around you. thanks in advance for taking care of this.

    You are extrapolating long term price movement on one days trading. Yes, that makes sense. Let's see, if I bounce the ping pong ball towards the rocks and it bounces to the left then it will continue to bounce to the left. Very scientific. I must assume that you passed a math test at least one time in your life and it gave you an undeserved sense of hubris, but then again to each its own. I hope it works for you.

    ANV at 3.07

    Well, maybe after ANV goes bankrupt Bill can just show up with $1 million and just buy 50% of the place (just kidding). As you know Bead, I am nothing if not patient (and maybe a bit stupid) so I hear you loud and clear. Too much risk. That is why I don't own any. Just wondering if you saw it the same. If I see a move in PM prices we'll talk again. For now I am just going to sit stupidly (funny how that word just keeps coming up) on my debt free Goro position and hope the Keystone Cops can continue what they began in the recent quarter. Thanks as always and glty

    I did see the debt. Wow, what I really think is that the strains in the Precious Metal Business are just so extreme that there is no telling. This reminds me of the crash in the Louisiana and Texas gulf oil patch in 1984 when the Saudis dropped the price of a barrel of oil to $6.00 (yes six dollars for a barrel) and then held the price at around $8.00 for a while. This led to the Southwest S&L Banking crisis if anyone can remember that far back. Keating and others went down and all kinds of #$%$ happened on the ground, but one thing that really stood out for me, and that I will always remember is that the rig count in the Gulf dropped from around 1,000 to I believe around 80. They couldn't give the rigs away and what I remember is that even very conservative companies with debt loads in the 10% or even less range suddenly went bankrupt. Even with no debt companies went bankrupt because they owned all these rigs (which easily cost 10's of millions of dollars) and suddenly they were not only worthless, but were even a liability.
    This may sound nuts, but if one owns 20 rigs worth let's just say $100 million in replacement costs (and in good working condition), but you can't rent it out for any amount of money so there is absolutely no cash flow coming in (yes, Bead, your favorite parameter, Lol, see someone is listening) these rigs have to be at least stored if not maintained. Where does one just put 20 seaworthy giant rig drilling platforms (kind of like the airplane junkyards in the middle of the deserts). It costs to move them, etc. etc. They were just completely abandoned and the companies which were $100's of Millions of revenue in size just disappeared over a three month period.
    I mean stuff like traffic counts on busy city streets, sales in cities, entire states just collapsed. This PM market is starting to remind me of that . If oil can do it why not gold??
    Next post.

    Bead, I sure hope that you are keeping an eye on ANV. Do you have any thoughts about their debt issues and whether they will be able to continue without major disruptions? ANV even more than Goro, EXK, etc. seems to be very beaten down. The level of value that I am seeing with ANV seems extreme with a price of 3.07 and 100 million shares out and sales for 2014 of probably around $400 million that is a sales to book ratio of less than one to one. Do you have any real thoughts about why the massive share price destruction is occurring? TIA

    Also, I have been right a lot about the specifics of the mining operations and the problems to be encountered and also I have been rather vehement in my disdain for the operational actions of Bill, etc. which Bead will confirm, so your inaccurate comments about my statements are again disproved. Even this last report was pretty much what I expected. To my mind Goro is a developing miner with a beaten down price and some future promise. NO debt helps, but low PM prices hurt so this remains a legitimate, but risky contrarian play. How you can twist these comments into some odd, twisted, reality is really beyond me, but as always, do your worst. Bye for another month or so. Have fun calling me names. Very adolescent of you, but so be it.

    OK IP, good luck to you, break a leg. It still seems sort of obsessive to me especially since most of what you accuse me of has nothing to do with me, but again, do what you like. And you are on ignore, and whether I intermittently choose to take a look see at what mean stuff you are saying about me seems to be my choice and not really your concern, but again, your obsession seems to know no bounds. Very odd, well bye until next time, just remember those dogs. Lol

    IP daily, you sure do spend a lot of time talking about me, especially since I never say any of the things that you claim I say or beliefs that you claim I have. I find this long distance worship very odd and slightly threatening. Please do not come near my house and begin genuflecting, kowtowing or exhibiting any other type of odd behavior. Thanks in advance. I would be very uncomfortable setting the dogs on you.

    Was that for me? Sis?? I am about as far from a sis as one can get. Even the gay men ignore me, Lol. And just a btw, I never have denied the possibility that Goro could be bought out. Especially with the recent strong hands buying the shares of Hoch. It just seems unlikely to me at least until some others are bought first, but who's to know. Anyway the secret formula quote put a laugh on my tongue. thanks for that.

    Bead, Your least comment here puts it all in a nutshell. The difficulty in predicting future cash flow is what originally inspired the comments made. The company is planning for gold-1200 and silver - 19. At those prices the dividend will not be raised. As I have been stating Jason is toning down the expectations almost as much as Bill inflated them. Since the price of gold silver will definitely affect production levels that also is left in doubt. UNtil we get some clarity on pricing the continuing statements, justifiably, coming out of the company are going to be very conservative. There is nothing here being telegraphed about anything we already do not know, but Jmho.

    Bead, If you remember I was livid for months about the mine flooding, misdirectional drilling, etc. Even to the point of being called a short or troll. I wouldn't give Bill a lemonade stand to run. But, I do disagree with you about Jason, Jesus and Devlin. Also, just BTw, I don't know Greg from Adam, so he doesn't concern me. so far you have been absolutely right and I have been a courteous, but moronic jerk. I have looked at the alternative miners that you mention and I have been less impressed by them then you seem to be and the price movements in the end have all sucked, so what is it about some others that is so much better, if we for the moment put Bill on the side? If you wish I am listening and as always, glty.
    and PS, watch for my "Sun Wings" but I'm definitely going to need money to really commercialize these things. Lol and Vaya con Dios.

    And Kyle, there is no book value because they expensed the entire capital structure by producing before they were a production company. Therefore there is no book value which means there are no future depreciation and amortization charges coming on in the future and it means that this company is being punished for taking a more conservative accounting path than most. The irony is just overwhelming on this point.

    What this company should really be valued on in my opinion is sales since there are almost no good guidelines left to value junior mining companies in this sector. Profitability is going to be an exercise in futility, and book value when downsizing means almost nothing except how much stuff you are going to throw away. At least production output and sales is some type of real measure of day to day activity, and even this is being held down by the lack of pricing room, but since there is nothing else sales show something and Goro has $130 million which if given a 3 times sales value which would be reasonable in a normal sector is close to $400 million which is the high $7 range. Is this too rich? Very likely but I see no one else even beginning to analyze any type of valuations based on real cash flows, so for now I continue to slowly acquire. If we get down to $1- or $2 I might accelerate my buying but so far very slow and steady and glta. Yes, IP it is now your turn to say something incredibly juvenile and offensive, though why you bother is beyond me.

    Pb, I've watched all this and I really am fine with most of it, but your post is just BS. On what basis is gold production suddenly so much more valuable than silver production, and how with sales of $130 million annual is a capitalization of under $200 million just so over valued. Not even considering the mill, mine upgrades, etc. And also not even considering that they have a solid three years of reserves at 8+ grams per ton. I very much understand Bead's absolutely refusal to move beyond Bill's nefarious deeds and I consider this very smart, but your BS jumping on the end of thread to make totally unsubstantiated comments is just too annoying to ignore. If you would like to make some type of real analysis, I can read, otherwise to ignore you go. TIA
