Pioneer Spirit, Building On Solid Base

There is no doubt, especially in this current market, that if embarking on a rebuilding phase, a company requires two important components. The first is a clear idea of its current situation and a precise plan of what it wants to achieve. The second, and some may say the most important, is a bank balance healthy enough to support its aspirations.

The "Jewell" in the crown

PIONEER Resources has its eye on the prize - including plans to mine its flagship project within the next three years.
Situated around 50 kilometres north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia's Goldfields, the Mt Jewell gold project has all the hallmarks of a significant discovery.
So much so that Pioneer Resources - which has $3.4 million in cash - is funneling 85% of its exploration budget into the project.
"We have made a new gold discovery and it is delivering exciting results, with a pipeline of additional prospects to grow the Mt Jewell project,"
Pioneer's managing director David Crook said.
The company is looking to put together a 500,000 ounce-plus inventory, which is capable of underpinning a 75,000oz per annum project with a seven-year mine life.

Nickel play develops golden edge

Better known for its suite of nickel exploration JVs, Pioneer Nickel NL securities returned to the board in early July with news the company had turned up further encouraging gold intercepts from drilling on its Lignum Dam project.
Coupled with this, Pioneer has identified a manganese-rich mineralised horizon at Ravensthorpe, meaning the company is diversifying away from nickel somewhat unintentionally.

Jubilee to fund major nickel exploration program

We initiate coverage of PIO on the back of the announcement yesterday that Jubilee Mines (JBM) will subscribe for a 10% placement in PIO at a share price of $0.15 (well above the market price of $0.12 before the announcement), as well as agreeing to spend $3.0m over a period of 3 years to earn a 60% stake in PIOs Acra nickel sulphide exploration project.
JBM is an agressive exploration spender and this deal complements its existing ground position at Emu Lakes, where it now has tied up 140 km of strike of prospective nickel acreage. ...
PIO shareholders can look forward to an exciting time as JBM will aggressively test the best targets its Acra acreage can offer.

Jubilee picks up 10pc stake in Pioneer

Shares in Heron Resources offshoot Pioneer Nickel soared more than 32 per cent yesterday after Kerry Harmanis' Jubilee Mines took a 10 per cent stake in the explorer and farmed into its Acra nickel deposit near Kalgoorlie.
Jubilee, owner of the rich Cosmos mine, said it would pay $230,000 cash and spend $3 million on exploration over three years to take a 60 per cent stake in Acra, which lies close to its own Emu Lake project.

Jubilee joins Pioneer for a bigger piece of nickel

Mid-tier nickel star Jubilee Mines has dipped into its large hoard of cash, as it seeks to convince the market it is more than a one-trick pony.
The company, which has been earning record profits from its Cosmos mine to the north of Kalgoorlie, will enter a joint venture with Pioneer Nickel on a large acreage of tenements near Kalgoorlie and also take a 10 per cent slice of that company.

How mines can put a hole in your wallet

... So it's instructive to look at the report on junior companies compiled each quarter by stockbrokers Intersuisse.
There you can see at a glance which companies are putting their - or, actually, your - money into the ground rather than into fancy offices and over-the-top salary packages for a select few directors.
According to Intersuisse the percentage of all spending in the June quarter that went into actual exploration activity is quite high. Range River came out top by putting 98 per cent of its outlays into the ground, followed by Pioneer Nickel (97 per cent), Minotaur Resources, Bullion Minerals, Red Metal, and Gunson Resources - all 89 per cent or above. Another test: who is keeping their administration spending low. Pioneer Nickel spent just $14,000; others at the top of the class were Jindalee Resources, spending $24,000, Navigator Resources $34,000, Platsearch, Giant's Reef and Range River $40,000, Red Metal $47,000 and Cullen Resources $50,000.

More than just perfect timing

Pioneer Nickel managing director David Crook has gone to great pains to point out that the formation of his company is not a knee-jerk reaction to the nickel price.
Despite the base metal's recent white-hot run to current prices of around US$12,300 per tonne, Crook said seeds for Pioneer were planted some 18 months ago.
