Dear Readers and fellow Investors,
Let me ask you a question: If my Dad has a 150million in net worth and is a well recognized businessman with a great track record. I would now ask you to lend me 6million $ and my Dad promises you to pay you back from mid 2014 on a 4million per annum for at least the next 12 years minimum, but possibly even for the next 20 years. so Basically, for your initial investment of 6million, you`d recieve 48-80million bucks.
What would you say? Not possible? Such Chances don`t exists?
Well, they DO!
V.ASE – Asante Gold just recently a announced a deal which is more or less like the situation i described above.
Asante Gold Corporation: Acquisition of Obotan Gold Project 1% NSR Royalty Announced
The most amazing point here is that, due to personal relationships from ASE`s management the deal is all-share based, with no cash component and values the shares of ASE @0,5Can$ while the stock was tradig at 0,2Can$!
But before we take a closer look at the 2014e cash-flowing Royalty aquisition announced last week, let me introduce the company and its Management to you.

The Fahiakoba Gold project – Ghana
Fahiakoba, a 22.07 sq km prospecting license located on strike with and between Perseus Mining’s 4.32 million ounce (gold reserves & resources) Edikan Mine and AngloGold Ashanti’s 60 million ounce (reserves & resources of 9.52 and 35.41 million ozs, and historical production of ~31 million ozs) Obuasi mine. The latter is the longest producing, highest grade and largest gold resource in West Africa.
Previous drill results from Phase one drilling showed some nice narrow width – high grade results. But should they find Edikan like Gold mineralisation of 20meters of high grade small qtz veinlets with gold Asante should see much greater Interest from both the Investor Communitiy as well as Perseus and possibly other Ghana based Gold producers. With their high annual production of more than 280.000 ounces it will be very important for Perseus to add additional reserves and resources from regional exploration and mergers.
In our view Fahiakoba represents one of the most promising early stage gold exploration projects in Ghana and it`s proximity to Gold producing mines derisks the project significantly.
The Royalty and it`s underlying asset
1% Net Smelter Royalty with no buyback right and no Cap, it covers the complete highgrade open pit Obotan Gold Project being developed by T.PMV. PMI Gold has in excess of 150million in cash and there is little doubht in the industry that they will build Ghanas next major Gold mine!
ANNUAL PROJECTED ASANTE GOLD 2014/2015e ROYALTY REVENUE: 3,7-4million $ @ 1700 Gold
As outlined above: Such great chances exist sometimes, but they won`t be there forever.
Asante in our view has 3 major upside cathalysts:
a) The Royalty aquisition. The closing of the deal and then cash flow from the development of Obotan into production by PMI Gold.
b) Exploration success on their Fahiakoba Gold project, which could potentially be a satellite deposit to T.PRU`s Edikan Mine
c) The ability from it`s great Management to do more good deals
We have just recently received our cash settlement from T.ICI`s Takeover and will reinvest the Money and our 50% profits into V.ASE. V.ASE will also be added to our public portfolio with the next update. What makes us even more confident is the fact that Insiders bought the stock all summer long…and are still buying!
