Aurumin Limited (ASX:AUN) - The Making of a Gold Miner

Coffee with Samso Episode 125 is with Brad Valiukas, Managing Director of Aurumin Limited (ASX: AUN)

Aurumin Limited (ASX:AUN) listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) two very interesting projects in the Southern Cross Goldfields, a region that has a history of producing high-grade resources.

The acquisition of 750,000 ounces of gold is a clear indication of the intent of Aurumin Limited. I felt that Brad Valiukas and his team were focused on their mining strategy. This move has confirmed my thoughts.

The strategy was pretty straightforward. Acquire historical mining projects that have potential for growth. Drill. And develop.

When I hear companies with this strategy, I notice that many use it as their lead for a story, but few actually have the intent to make it happen.

The initial Mt Dimer and Mt Palmer and Johnson Range are initial cornerstone projects for the company. However, with this acquisition, the Sandstone project is a step up.

One of the key aspects of the project is the 500,000 ounces of gold resources which is untouched and underground. In my opinion, this is an upside that cannot be ignored. We're not talking about a sprint to the finish here. If anything, this is going to be a marathon, and by the sound of our conversation, there are more surprises coming.
