    1 minute before closing 1.1+million shares traded at 4.26. Private placement? Market manipulation? Any ideas?

    Nautilus reconfirms shaken PNG partnership

    Thanks for the article SDM! A lot of talk from Joyner without any news to back it up which is frustrating. Once again Nautilus not letting its shareholders in on what is actually going on. Equipment is going to be sitting in storage for a couple of years at least it seems.

    Gold and gold producers are up pretty typical I think. Still low volume.

    Nautilus deal over, but not yet out

    A professional deal maker, promoter and negotiator coming back?! What good would we need him for? We have interim(?) Mike Johnston awaiting amicable resolution and collecting a pay cheque every month! Don't you remember how proud he was of how LONG and hard he and Shantel worked on getting PNG their IP rights for nothing in return! :-(

    Agreed SSD. But I think there is a catch 22 here. If they were in talks with a company/entity for partnership they would legally not be able to release any news until the deal was complete. If there are no talks going on the only press release would be that "There is no new business going on at Nautilus" so no reason to make a news press release that there is no news.
    Basic equipment/project progress reports and community involvement marketing releases should be being made as a normal part of staying in contact with the investment community and to buoy the share price. Zero promotion and marketing is taking place outside of trade shows which is ridiculous. Man, I sure hope they are in talks and about to drop the bomb on us very soon.

    How many shares do you own?

    Ah... so young. You really should take the advise you were given. Being possibly $10 grand richer at 21 may seem really cool but being a guaranteed millionaire at 35 or 40 now THAT is cool. Don't throw away money "betting" on pennies, do what gunnar_08034 told you, it is very sage advice. BTW... 15,500 and 2,500 make 18,000.

    Time to move ahead

    They spent $300million mapping out Solwara. Where are they going to get the money to map other areas? And just throwing away all that time and research. I think you guys (not to generalize but there has been a lot of that talk here) are reading too much into PNG not wanting to partner vs PNG wanting to destroy NUS. New Ireland has come out and said they are in support of NUS. I don't think the NGOs have anywhere near the power to make PNG's government revoke the mining permit. If they pick up a powerful partner soon that puts the project back on track, I think they will be thinking to the future and less about squeezing out damages from PNG. IMHO.

    Oh my mistake there I guess Moonrava. NUS did take a $29million impairment when Harren went under. I wonder what that was about.

    I'd argue not the same position. We got the environmental permit and the mining permit, the equipment was beginning to be built and the ship was being built by Harren. The project was fully underway. Now, the equipment is being built but no ship. Equipment can be built fast. A ship takes time. It will be interesting to see how much time has been put into other discussions with other partners over the last 6 months or if we are just beginning. We will hopefully hear next week. I agree the guy that asked about the media blackout has got to be the coolest, best looking, pure genius around.

    "Had to terminate contract because of no progress" was the underlying theme for the call. Now they can enter into partnerships with other entities and can supposedly keep us informed. Cash burn is still 3-4 million per month. Relationship with PNG appear to be good. Seems like PNG simply has no interest in spending time on NUS. Mike said they were mostly just talking with treasury departments, I guess getting nowhere on the "give us the money"-"we can't give you the money until O'Neil says so"-"O'Neil is avoiding us" discussion for 6 months. Should have given them a quarter, instead they gave them two. Mike pounding his chest over the equipment build despite the fact that it is useless to have $200 million of equipment gathering rust for two+ years waiting for the ship to be built.

    Come on guys. So much good discussion here then NOBODY on the conference call asking any hard questions. Nine months of no information and nobody has anything to say? Hopefully Mike is talking straight and now "next week" we will hear of the discussions with other partners.

    Sayonara PNG

    A good point on second, the IP. NUS supposedly gave them the IP for nothing in return. Is that now void?
    On the first, PNG doesn't own 30% of NUS because they never paid for it so they can't sell it.

    Is that possible? Anyone know of any precedence where a mining license has been revoked? Especially prior to any mining commencing? Marko, crunch any numbers on what 300 million of assays and 200 million of equipment plus 50 million in the bank would cost a prospective partner for 30%?

    Nautilus-Video from the Ed Begley Show

    monkabc3 monkabc3 Feb 5, 2014 1:28 PM Flag

    Thanks SBM. Looks like they are refining their marketing and promotion which is good. Johnston needs to look up the meaning of holistic though. He spoke reasonable well but he isn't a promoter, salesman or a negotiator unfortunately. Would like to see him get some help on that front. Am a little concerned with his "gin blossoms", how much time is he putting toward NUS and how much time is he spending drinking. I don't mean to be pessimistic but I've been doing the definition of insanity everyday for four months now. Getting up, checking Nautilus and expecting something to be different.

  • monkabc3 monkabc3 Jan 23, 2014 10:06 PM Flag

    Couldn't agree more. Would love this guys job. Have zero relations with investors then give a really poor pitch at a trades show once a year. "Sorry, I'm not Mike or Shontel" and yes the 'open pit' description of the project was truly cringe worthy. Man, I am ITCHING for some news! It has to be soon...

    What a thoroughly unimpressive man. Wow, he can read from a power point slide. Investor relations is his field? wow.

    PNG Budget 2014 is approve...

    Steve, thanks for checking it out. Based on that I think the numbers are too arbitrary to signify an specific allotment for NUS, although it is certainly possible. $118 or some variation of it fits easily into $620 just not as cut and dry because of the big change in 2012. The money is there now. Decisions, decisions...
