Lukas Lundin found more Gold and Copper: Fortress Intercepts 26.5 Metres Grading 9.24 g/t Gold at the Elena Prospect. FST.v, CGH.to, LUN.to, HUI


Lukas Lundin's Fortress Minerals FST.v has found more high grade gold in Russia and he has found a small M&A play with Chariot Resources. We were just wondering when he will be back in action.



"CHARIOT SHAREHOLDERS: YOUR VOTE WILL DETERMINE THE DIRECTION OF YOUR COMPANY CHARIOT RESOURCES’ BOARD OF DIRECTORS BELIEVES THAT THE ACTION OF THE LUNDIN DIRECTORS IS AN OPPORTUNISTIC ATTEMPT TO SEIZE CONTROL OF YOUR COMPANY THROUGH CONTROL OF THE BOARD WITHOUT PAYING A CONTROL PREMIUM TO YOU FOR YOUR SHARES."
We are following Mr Lukas Lundin for a number of years and have never seen him cutting the corners, being its legal or his fiduciary duty to fellow stakeholders. Move is unusual for him and his group and we are monitoring the situation. Our first take is that it is a good reminder of shareholder's right to employ and fire the management. We have a lot of experience, when management forgets who is running the company and who is running the show.




"We expect Lukas Lundin to storm the junior space back with his troops. He was out of the picture for a while and put his exploration ambitions on hold consolidating Canadian Gold Hunters CGH.to, Suramina Resources and Sanu Resources. He has grown up fast first in size of the controlled assets and status of Major League by Lundin Mining and then was hit with problems followed - he was busy saving them after the crash. But now we have a few signs of his team coming back into the junior M&A market space and we would like to speculate whether it could lead to any catalyst in juniors we are following."


We will call it a corporate governance in action and a good example: who is working for whom - management is working for shareholders and they should run the show.
Sleeping at the wheel has never paid back, if you are are not running a major bank or a Wall street firm.
