Coffee with Samso Episode 39 with James E Marsh, Andromeda Metals Limited (ASX: ADN)

The much anticipated Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) for Andromeda Metals Limited (ASX: ADN) is finally published. James Marsh (Managing Director) talks to us about what is in the study and what it means to the company.

The market has been anticipating this PFS for a while and the recent share price movement prior to the release was in anticipation of something extraordinary. However, the decrease in share price after the release of the PFS is in no indication of the quality of the PFS. My thoughts are that the decreasing share price is due to market trading rather than a reflection of poor results from the PFS. In this chat, James highlights all the major points that reflect that the company’s path forward is well and truly on track and according to plan.

What viewers should take away from this Coffee with Samso is that the potential upside of Andromeda Metals is just about to be realised and shareholders should realise that James is fully invested in this story.

My conclusion has not changed since our first Coffee with Samso late last year. This company has a product that is not easily found in a combination of quality and delivery. The two most important part of the project, that being quality of resource and logistic to market, is well covered and is under controlled. The PFS, at an early stage, is showing that the playability of the project is on the right path.
