Andromeda Metals Limited (ASX:ADN) - The Real Story.

James E Marsh clears the air about Andromeda Metals Limited (ASX:ADN)

over Coffee with Samso Episode 124

Over the past two years, the Andromeda Metals story has taken many twists and turns. Today, there is a lot of misconception, misunderstanding and a lack of understanding of what the company really does. Let's clear the air.

When I first spoke to Andromeda Metals Limited (ASX: ADN) in late 2019, the company felt like it had such a simple business.

A simple business that was going to make a lot of money.

After talking with James Marsh and learning more about the business, I was convinced that this was better than an AUD$0.04 stock.

Andromeda Metals did not prove me wrong. In fact, the shares went to a high of AUD$0.45, putting their market capitalisation at over AUD$1B. I was an early shareholder and left the register many times before the AUD$1B valuation.

I have to admit that the story of the business was changing at a pace that I did not keep up with. This is nothing new in a developing company, but talking to associates and existing shareholders, I realised that there is a lot of misunderstanding.

Harking back to our very first conversation in 2019 - Coffee with Samso - Ep 27 - The myth and facts about the Halloysite and Kaolinite Industry - ADN - there was the question of what exactly is the company mining?

Back then, I was hearing from people that Andromeda was mining Halloysite and not Kaolinite...etc The result after our chat on Coffee with Samso was that we got some clarity to the issues.

In today's episode, James shares with us insights that I feel are good in helping to address some of the comments that have been flying around in the marketplace. The people I had spoken to about the ins and outs of Andromeda have been telling me that they don't really know and understand what is happening.

Hopefully, in today's episode of Coffee With Samso, we gain some clarity on some of the uncertain narratives that in the community.
