SMR - Stanmore Resources

Still one furnace running at Port Kembla so far as I'm aware and also there's some other, much smaller, uses of met coal within Australia too.
Thanks @Smurf1976
I was unaware that Port Kembla has a blast furnace. Yes Whyalla has for sure. Visited there in 2018. Very old furnace there. Last time I ran blast furnaces in 1992. That was old but whyalla was no different in 2018.
 
Another party I missed last year, but got 20k tickets today.
I won't get the next 8 cent ff divvy, but am not too worried.
SMR has been dealing with Golden Investment's push for a few things, including an EGM, to bring their desires to bear.
This was settled last week and no EGM will now take place, but some concessions to them were made. One was to appoint Jimmy Lim as a non-executive director. While a minor issue, Golden Investments is very keen to return greater than average profits to investors, them being a major investor. So my reckoning is that they will prioritise returns rather than fund shorter term expansions to production.
The other reason I jumped on board is because their greater production is coking coal, and not thermal. Thermal coal is going to struggle pricewise as natural gas becomes an increasingly better option in energy markets.
 
On May 14th, 2021, Stanmore Coal Limited changed its name to Stanmore Resources Limited.
 
The directors are recommending a change of name for the Company to Stanmore Resources. The Board believes that the name of the Company should be reflective of our aim to continue developing and strengthening our core metallurgical coal business, but also exploring other resource diversification opportunities, including but not limited to the renewable energy space.
In that vein a company called Stanmore Green has been created. The vision for this company is to leverage our assets and execution capabilities to explore and pursue diversification opportunities in the renewable energy space offering synergistic and value add to our existing and future operations.
hmm. plants good, fossilised plants no good
 
Oh cool, look at SMR's chart folks! Is this or is this not a rock and roll cup and handle formation on the 12 year monthly chart? I can't draw a measured move calc as my charts don't go high enough. Black gold?

Referring back to my previous post about a Cup & Handle pattern, at the time I couldn't draw an outcome for the pattern as it was so high. Over time I was able to draw an outcome, I have been watching this level getting closer and closer and yesterday after riding this stock from around January this year I sold it yesterday at 2.59 just sitting at the outcome level of 2.60. Let's see if my calculations turn out to be correct.

we've always known it's not a good idea to stand between a Treasury and a new tax, or, technically, three new progressive royalty tiers being introduced in addition to the current structure for Qld coal producers.

After a good run on sustainably higher coal prices, from $1 at the start of the year to as high as $2.90 in May, SMR has dived to around $1.78 a share.

Stanmore Resources has hit back at changes to the coal royalty regime announced by the Queensland government as part of its budget. The company said it is analysing the impact of the additional taxes on the business and will provide an update in due course.
Stanmore is very disappointed with these extraordinary tax increases given its commitments to the Isaac Downs Project and re-opening of the Millennium and Mavis mines, as well as the very recent and significant $US1.2 billion investment in the Queensland coal sector with the acquisition of our 80 per cent in BMC,” chief executive Marcelo Matos said.
Royalty rates in Queensland were already among the highest in the world prior to these increases and come at a time when the Queensland coal industry was just recovering from the losses experienced during the market downturn in 2020 and 2021. The increases to the royalty rates without formal notice or consultation with the industry are unprecedented.
